So I decided to make the switch to electronic cigarettes a few months ago. I was finally finished with my clothes smelling like an ashtray, the inconvenience of stepping outside for a smoke, and the overall ill effects it has on your life… like not being able to breath.
I started with purchasing the $20 disposable ecigs from the liquor store. They were a good start but I wanted something I could easily charge, experiment with different flavors, and not break the bank. I searched online and found many brands with appealing products with unappealing prices. I’m not ready to drop $80 on a ecig. The point is to cut into the costs of my smoking habit not add to it.
I found the Tru-Smoke product and decided to give it a try. It seemed easy to use, they have a variety of flavors, and the price was right at $40 for their Starter Kit. Purchased through their website, www.tru-smoke.com, and received the Starter Kit a few days later.
Starter Kit comes as 1 single unit wrapped in a clear plastic wrap to keep it all together. The kit is basically the same size as a pack of standard cigarettes which is nice. Keeps everything familiar and I don’t have to deviate from my normal routine.
The Starter Kit comes with 6 Tobacco flavored cartridges in a Medium strength nicotine. I like how you can carry extra cartridges with you in the unit itself. Makes it easy. Comes with simple to read directions on using the product which is nice.
The charging feature is what I think sets this product apart. You just remove the perforated cut-out on the bottom of the pack and it reveals a slider. Just lightly push in the slider and slide out the prongs. It plugs into any wall plug to charge. Has a light on the packet that lets you know its charging (red) and turns green when charged completely. The pack has a slot that you screw the battery into when time to charge. Nice and easy.
The ecig itself consist of 3 pieces. A battery, atomizer, and flavor cartridge. Pretty simple operation. Atomizer screws onto battery and flavor cartridge slides onto atomizer.
The flavor cartridge is made of plastic with the nicotine solution hidden in a small foil packet in the cartridge. The atomizer punctures the foil and heats up the nicotine solution when you take a drag. The tip of the battery lights up to let you know its working.
I used the product all day and it definitely did what it was supposed to do. Anytime I had a craving for a cigarette, I would pull out the ecig and puff on it for awhile. So far so good.
I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to try out the ecig thing. I’ve smoked it in my car, at my office, watching TV at my house, etc. It’s definitely easy to use and easy on the wallet compared to other products. I’m going to order a couple different flavor cartridges in different nicotine strengths and I’ll write a review on that later.
