|Chris from Asheville, NC reviewed SmokeTip model 'SmokeTip' on January 23 2011:|
OverallOrdered was received within three days, so was quite satisfied at that point. Even though I allowed both batteries to recharge the recommended 6-8 hours, the first time I used this device each of the batteries only last about 6 hours with moderate usage. Somewhat disappointed with this aspect, athough the lifetime warranty does make me feel secure with my selection. After watching numerous reviews on "You Tube", I am convinced that the vapor output is middle of the road, as far as other e-cigs that are on the market. The cartridges that came with the gift pack are "acceptable", but I have reallly enjoyed the "Marlboro" lights and ready to try some of the other flavors that "SmokeTip" has available. Finally, as far as each cartridge being equivalent to 1.25 packs, I am somewhat skeptical. In my estimation this number should be more approximate to 15-18 per cartridge. But again for the price, I feel that this is a good starter smoke, and if some improvements are made (included carrying case for start) this company could top the list above the two or three that seem to be atop on every review.........
Value vs. Cost

Standard battery: Your choice of traditional white, black or chrome. Our 180mAh lithium batteries work with all SmokeTip cartridges.It will last for an average smoker 3 hours to 3 days depending upon usage. For a heavier smoker (2-4 packs a day) , the battery will last 1-2 hours. We also have : 350mAh Battery Double the power! Our 350mAh lithium battery will give you almost double the use time. Comes in white with an orange light and charges with standard SmokeTip chargers. Please note this battery is longer and heavier and will not fit in the carry case or travel charger. Hope this helps!
