|Roger from Hilo, HI reviewed SmokeTip model 'SmokeTip' on November 14 2010:|
OverallI really enjoy this product.
Value vs. Cost
I stopped smoking for 5 weeks. I used the patch a few times after quitting. I ordered the SmokeTip for the cost of the replacement cartridges being affordable. Placed the order on a Saturday night and received them by the following Wednesday even tho I live in Hawaii. It is easy to use and it did take me over a day to get used to it. Once I got used to it, I actually like it. It was like changing from reg soda to diet at first. I also ordered the Vanilla cartridges, and they are great. I am usually about a 1-2 pack a day smoker. The battery usually lasts me just under a day. Even tho you only need to charge the battery about 2-3 hours after the initial charge, I leave it in longer. The cartridges last me about a day each.
I did order the case but I dont like it as you need to separate the battery from the cartridge. It has slots specifically for 2 batteries and 2 carts (not assembled).
I found that sometimes after not smoking it for some time, it doesnt have the same flavor, but I then "prime" it again (as you'd do when first using a new cart) and its fine.
If ordering additional cartridges, the site has a discount if you purchase 3 or more.
I have recommended this product to my smoking friends already. It doesnt make things smelly like a cig, my fingers dont smell nor do my clothing. I even did that test where you blow the "smoke" thru a paper towel, and it doesnt change color like a cig would do.
I have not had any problems with anything, and I'm very happy that I bought this product.
