When you visit the EonSmoke website, it says that this e-cig “looks, feels, and tastes like a real cigarette.” That’s what most people are looking for in an electronic cigarette, but the question is whether they will really deliver. I ordered an EonSmoke kit and decided to find out.
EonSmoke has a good selection of products. There are four starter kits ranging from $30 to $110. My kit was $80 and it’s called the EonSmoke Premium Kit. It included 2 batteries, 6 cartridges, a usb charger, and a wall adapter. They are also running a promotion where you get an extra 5-pack of cartridges free with the premium kit.
In terms of customization, I thought EonSmoke had a nice selection. Nicotine strengths range from no nicotine to 30 mg. There are 16 flavors to choose from: apple, cherry, chocolate, coffee, mango, menthol, mint, mojito, president, sands, strawberry, tobacco, vanilla, wrangler, grape mint, and frost.
When my kit arrived, I thought it was nicely packaged. It comes in a typical flip top box with a magnetic latch. Inside the kit, there is a user manual, certificate of inspection, and membership card to the EonSmoke Club. A lot of kits are starting to include these membership cards, which basically give a quick summary of what the e-cig is and serves as an informational item to give to restaurant managers or bartenders that give you a hard time. Unfortunately, EonSmoke’s card wasn’t the best I’ve seen. There was no contact information for EonSmoke on the card and it was pretty vague on the legalities of e-cigarettes.
Another thing to note was that the packaging and user’s manual had several spelling mistakes. While this doesn’t really affect the overall e-cig experience, it does give a bad first impression. It seemed careless and unnecessary. I mean, how much time does it take to do a spell check before you order mass packaging materials? That really gave me a reason to stop and think about how high quality the product could really be.
Thankfully, the equipment seemed basically normal and everything worked okay. The cartridges were sealed in little plastic bags with rubber tips on the ends. They also had the flavor marked clearly, which is a huge perk. The only bad thing was the lack of expiration dates on the cartridges. I felt like that would really amp up the quality component if they would add the expiration dates to the little bags.
In terms of design, the EonSmoke is a typical e-cig with white battery and tan cartridge. It is made to mimic the design of an analog cigarette so there was nothing too exciting or extraordinary to note about the way this e-cig looked.
Next comes the important part. When I tried the EonSmoke, it was actually really strong! I would say this brand is best for heavy smokers because with the 18mg cartridge, I thought the throat hit was almost too strong. If the 18mg cartridges were packing this much punch, I couldn’t even wrap my mind around how the 30mg cartridges would perform. Wow! However, keep in mind that some people really love that strong throat hit. It’s just a personal preference for me to have something a little milder. So really, that’s up to you!
The EonSmoke was pretty average on flavor. The tobacco flavor was a little sweet, but pretty typical for a China-made cartridge. It wasn’t bad at all, but was basically just average. It did have great vapor production that consistently thick and satisfying, so that’s a big plus.
Overall, I think EonSmoke is a solid electronic cigarette, but it’s just average. There were several small issues like misspelled packaging and lack of an expiration date. These things would be easy to change and they would make a big difference in my overall rank for EonSmoke. For now, I’d say this company is really in the middle. They offer a decent product that isn’t really surprising or exciting, but it’s definitely a functional option.
