Do NOT hesitate, BUY THIS!!
Review by M0n0XiDe_ChiLDon 4/11/11
I went through several different e cigs by several brands(totaling 4, at about $300 out of my pocket). I always had full intention of giving up analogs for vaping, but ended up going back to all analogs, all the time. Here's what my problem was;
Charge up the batteries, puff for a bit, cart would die. Swap out the cart, battery would die. Lather, rinse, frustrate, rage, repeat. Everyone made promises-
"each cartridge is equal to a whole pack of cigarettes!" which was total bullshit. Who measures their smokes by the puff anyways? The things were just unreliable from whoever I got them from. Then (I dunno exactly how) I stumbled upon volcano and their tankomizer setup. Sweet Jesus, THANK YOU VOLCANO!! This thing rocks, it's as reliable as my good ol' .45, its always there with little to no problems. I ordered my kit on Saturday 04/02 and had it by Wednesday 04/06, with the free 2day shipping(don't order on weekends?). I charged both batteries and cleaned both atomizers the night I got home from work. The super battery(aptly named) just died this morning(Monday 04/11!), didn't cut out or fade away, or dropped in vapor production for days before, let me know it was dead and straight stopped, like it should. That damn thing lasted me damn near 5 entire days of constant vaping, and I do mean constant. I wish like hell I'd of known of this company and this product the day I discovered the industry of e-cigs. I haven't even looked at analogs since the day I got this kit because I have a nicotine crutch I can rely on. This is getting winded, so let me sum it up;
RELIABLE, you wanna puff? If your battery is charged the inferno is there.
DELICIOUS, I got 3 flavors, all 'full flavor' Kona Koffee, Vanilla Bean, and Tobacco. The coffee is a little more bitter than I anticipated, but if you mix it with vanilla its a dream.
TANKOMIZERS, my god why did it take so long for these to be invented? They're AWESOME. Just get your orientation settled before you click it in, I've only had 2 leaks, and I'm pretty sure it was from fiddling with the tank after it'd seated. The how to video explains a way to punch out the tab in your tanks, for god's sake do NOT try any other method, I may have ruined 1 of my tanks. A full tank of e-juice lasts 1~2 days, which is friggin fabulous.
A tad potent/hardcore when it comes to 'full flavor'. I read everyone rave about throat hit on like every juice that i bought. I was a pack a day or so smoker before I got this, and I've damn near made myself sick from the nicotine, the next batch of liquids I buy I'm stepping down to the 11mg dosage. The flavors are so good you wanna just sit there and puff. I don't know if the dosage will affect the throat hit factor, but I can't take big fat drags off this thing like I can an analog, hopefully the 'lights' juice is what I need.
Leaks; as previously mentioned, I have had 2 leak instances, and both were after twisting the tank after it was seated to get it straight with the button. Also, I think the same tank may have been the culprit in both instances. As previously mentioned, I got antsy while my tankomizers were drying and tried to punch its tab out with a small screwdriver, didn't work out. So this may or may not be an issue, but one time it leaked in my shirt at work and stained an $80 dress shirt:/
All in all, if you're considering buying this, then you should most definitely do it. I was slightly skeptical from having been burnt before, but I could not be happier with this purchase. This is indeed a true revelation and soon any e-cig company that knows whats good for them will have there crack at this design. I sure hope volcano has good lawyers and patents because this is a GREAT design and they deserve every bit of credit for it. Depending on how this next round of juices go, Volcano will have a lifetime customer in me, and I've already been recommending this product to all of my friends since day 2. I can't wait to try Bluewater Punch!! Oh, P.S. if anyone from volcano is reading this.. A sample pack of your juices would probably be a good money maker. I'd easily pay $30-40 for a 3-5ml bottle of up to say, 5 of your flavors. Just so I can figure out what I want to buy from you for the rest of my days:P
