|Emily from Cape Girardeau, MO reviewed SmokeTip model 'Smoke Tip: SKT1' on November 20 2010:|
OverallMy father and brother purchased electronic cigarettes from another company that offered a free trial. They did not read into the terms of the free trial and thought they were getting free starter kits and would only have to purchase the cartridges. They were wrong and were charged around $150.00 for the starter kit, put on a monthly subscription for cartridges (costing them around $70.00 per month) and there was no warranty on the product. I loved the idea of the ecigarette and so I did my own research and finally found this webpage. I chose SmokeTip based on the reviews, the price, the variety of flavors and the free shipping. I placed my order for my starter kit on Friday after 5:00 p.m. and received it on Monday! Because of some of the reviews I read from different companies, I purchased the 12mg (light) cartridges. I usually smoke ultra-light cigarettes. The 12mg were too strong and gave me a headache if I smoked too much. I have since ordered a 6mg (ultra-light)cartridge pack but have not received them yet. I had a half of a pack of cigarettes left by the time the battery was charged and ready to be used and I did finish that pack between smoking my new smoketip. I have not had a real cigarette in 3 days and have no desire to smoke one. The smoketip keeps me completely satisfied. I smoked in my car with all the windows up and there was no fog out; I was impressed! I am able to smoke in my office and no one knows cause they cannot smell it. My battery lasts at least one full day if not longer and the first cartridge lasted me 4.5 days (I was a pack a day smoker). It is a little different than smoking a real cigarette but after just a few days you get used to the differences and you don't notice them anymore. You have to take long slow drags but the throat hit and amount of vapor are impressive. I love the fact that the battery has a live time guarantee too!
