|Earl from Saint Clair, MI reviewed SmokeTip model 'smoketip' on April 04 2011:|
OverallAfter quite a bit of research online, I decided to go with Smoketip because of two factors: their competitively priced starter kit and refill carts, and their much praised customer service. My initial order took a bit longer than I anticipated to arrive, and when it did, it was only partial. I knew from the specifications on their website that some of the items were backordered, but the dates kept being pushed back. When one of the two batteries in the starter kit wouldn't hold a recharge, I had no trouble whatsoever getting an exchange from them. They always reply to my email requests very promptly. I am concerned about a lot of their products being out of stock, and will line up another website as backup just in case. That being said, my experience with e-cigs so far has been quite positive. I have cut down on the regular smoking by about 50 percent and intend to quit smokes altogether within days. I found that the regular size batteries only last me about 3-4 hours though, so I intend to order a 350mAh fairly soon.
Value vs. Cost
I am (was) a Marlboro Reds smoker. The regular 16mg's seem to actually have a bit more of a "hit" on the back of my throat it tastes like Marlboro :). I would definitely recommend e-cigs to people who want to cut down on smoking or quit altogether.
