Well after 15 days, my eGo-T electronic cigarette finally arrived. I bought it directly from the wholesaler for $32.75 from a website called DHgate which looks very similar to eBay which is where I got the link from. The e-cig came from China which is why it took so long to get to me. By the way, the price keeps changing, so you may not find it for the same price that I bought mine for. The other day it went up to $38 and now (as of this posting) it has gone down to $36.
I have seen a review of this model and found what a piece of crap it is because you don’t get a strong hit from it at all which I find to be so true. I taste the flavors, which was the main reason for buying it in the first place, but not as well as I had hoped. I even shook it the way he does in the video and it’s still underwhelming. For this review, search YouTube for “THE EGO-T FAIL” by user GrimmGreen.
When it arrived, I took it out of the box and looked at the cartridges that came with it. They all exploded so there was e-liquid inside the plastic of each individually wrapped cartridge. The smell was beyond nauseating. They sent me 5 cartridges filled with what they call Marlboro flavored e-liquid They also sent me 2 empty cartridges, but without caps. What good were those without the cap? As I was rinsing the first one out, I dropped the cap and guess where it went? Go ahead… guess. Yep, you guessed it, right down the drain. UGH!
After rinsing out all the cartridges, I smelled them and they still smelled like the e-liquid that they came with. I took one of the clean and empty cartridges and used one of the caps and you could still taste the gross “Marlboro” flavor instead of the sweet flavor I bought. I was told that sometimes it takes a few hits to get rid of the gross flavor before you get the taste of the new flavor. That ended up being true when I switched from the Zeus Juice to chocolate. When I switched it from chocolate to strawberry, I still tasted chocolate. I think the best thing to do is to get clean cartridges and dedicate it to that one flavor, which I did. I bought a pack of 10 empty cartridges from Amazon over the weekend and it shipped out on Monday, so hopefully they will come soon.
Earlier tonight I vaped some of the chocolate and took a sip of my iced tea and the chocolate flavor really came out more. I think that I will get a lot more out of it if I vape while drinking (before or after, not during). I know that sounds nuts, but so does a non-smoker buying an e-cigarette lol. I think that if I switched over to iced water while vaping, I might get more out of it than just vaping it alone. I’ll be drinking what I should be drinking all this time, water, while still getting the flavor benefit which is what I wanted to begin with.
Even though this turned out to be more disappointing for me as a non-smoker trying to use it for the flavor, I still think it’s an awesome idea for those smokers who want to quit smoking or just to make the switch.
I still recommend Zeus eJuice as opposed to buying the e-liquid at the cigarette store. My cousin Tabitha told me tonight that she saw a sign that said e-liquid was $8 for 10ML. Most would think that’s not a bad price, but you could get a 30ML bottle from Zeus eJuice for $10.49. Now you tell me which is the better price. They also claim to have more flavor than other places that sell the flavors, so you get the taste and you save a ton of money. I think it’s worth it.
I only just got my eGo-T today, so I’m going to try to use it as much as I can to get as much out of it as I can before I decide whether I want to continue with this or not. Perhaps I might find that a better model will suit my needs more. These batteries only last for so long before they stop working, and I have 2 so I have a long time with it before I will need to buy a new one. Perhaps maybe I need a new atomizer that will work with this. Who knows, but I will keep trying with what I have and see where it takes me. Maybe I might get used to it. Maybe…
Oh and for those interested, the LCD display shows me the battery and it shows a number. I found out that every time I press the button, the number goes up. I read the manual and it said that the battery is capable of 800 puffs a day, so I guess that will show you how many hits you took, but there is no way of resetting the number back down to 0 so you can start over the next day. I can only assume that you just keep going until it resets itself back to 0, then start over lol. My question is, who is that addicted to smoking that they would take 800 puffs a day? I mean, you would have to be a chain smoker who is just sitting there with it in your mouth all day long taking puff after puff. I’m getting dizzy just thinking about it. I have only taken 28 puffs today so I think I’m doing pretty good lol.
