Vuse E Cig review.
The fact that Vuce is manufactured by “Big Tobacco” and the model hasn’t changed since 2007 makes it not very popular among “die-hard” vapers and younsters. But the product is still sold – and it may even play one of the most important roles in the e-cigarettes market. It is still high-demand and makes good profit to the manufacturer.
We made this overview for those who are really curious about the Vuse. We also compiled a list of our top products of the same kind that you can have a look at.
RJ Reynolds Vapor, a subsidiary company of Reynolds Tobacco launched the Vuse in 2012. Reynolds is the second biggest tobacco behemoth in the States snapping at Altria’s heels that is all-time leader. It’s head office is based Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The company produces two famous brands: Salem and Winston, that are popular not only in the United Stated but all over the world.
You can easily purchase the Vuse e-cigarette at any place where tobacco is available: at petrol stations and corner shops. You can get a basic not excessive "starter pack" with an accumulator, a cartridge with one custom flavor and a recharger for 11$. Additional accessories other stuff (for instance, adapters, bags for storage and cartridges with extra liquids) can be bought from their official company-issued site.
Let’s make our overview of the Vuse Digital Vapor e-cigarette more profound and extended.
Taken as a whole, the Vuse Digital Vapor e-cigarette looks good and kicky. The device case is very firm, solid and fully metallic made of stainless steel. The accumulator is fetched to the plastic cartridge. The shape and size reminds of the real cigarette, but the Vuse e-cig can never be confused with it due to the prominent cool appearance. A LED lamp glows while using. When the flavor liquid is about to end, the indicator starts flashing. The same thing happens then the charging level is critically low – the LED lamp will immediately turn red.
E-cigarettes that imitate a real cigarette have a very small accumulator. The Vuse accumulator is quite similar to other accumulators of the same type and the run-time doesn’t differ significantly from other e-cigarettes.
Those who use the Vuse intensively claim that the device needs recharging every 2 hours, and light users need recharging every 8 hours. Purchasing extra accumulators to take them to work or to other places where you don’t have an opportunity to charge the device is a very good option. It is strongly recommended for people quit smoking cigarettes not very long ago because they vape more heavily. But it depends on particular person. We can say one thing exactly: counting somebody’s puffs or reading feedback on the accumulators is meaningless. You are better to try the Vuse yourself.
The Vuse offers 8 flavors, but 2 of them (Nectar and Melon) are available only in 7-Eleven supermarkets. The dealer describes flavors as follows:
Original: a try to copy the classic tobacco taste
Crema: mild creamy scent with very light undertones
Berry: a mix of juicy berries
Menthol: just an ordinary menthol
Chai: a mix of different tea sorts
Mint: dewy and exhilarating flavor with tobacco notes
Melon: sweet but refreshing smell of watermelon
Nectar: a mix of vibrant tropical fruits
4.8% (48mg/mL) nicotine is added to each vaping liquid, which makes the Vuse quite strong. It’s an advantage for those who have smoked a lot for a long period of time or those who is trying to quit smoking at the moment. A set of two cartridges containing vaping liquid will cost you approximately 8$ but the price may vary dramatically and depend on the location and the retailer.
Using the Vuse.
The process of vaping the Vuse is very simple and reminds smoking of an ordinary cigarette. The Vuse e-cigarette just weighs more than an ordinary one and needs a cartridge and an accumulator. The drag feels almost the same and the way you hold the e-cig is also very similar. First inhale the vapor in your mouth and only after you “taste” the flavor and keep it in a little bit, inhale it in your lungs (vapers call this way of using MTL which is the abbreviation for mouth-to-lung).
The Vuse hits a throat strongly and it simulates an ordinary cigarette smoking attracting smokers end ex-smokers. Unlike classic tobacco, e-cigarette doesn’t have combustion products and shouldn’t be put out after vaping.
The Vuse e-cigarette is fitted with Smart Technology. It has the form of sending units constantly controlling temperature, power, voltage and vaporization. Smart Technology is claimed to provide a perfect puff every time you use the device. Hm. Not even close.
Other Customers Feedback.
According to plenty of overviews found on the internet resources dedicated to vaping (for example, ElectronicCigaretteConsumerReviews, Digital Trends, PCMag and other, the Vuse e-cigarettes mostly got positive ratings. The most frequent pros that are pointed are good appearance and excellence of execution, strong throat hit and affordable price.
But some users complain on high expenses with long term use, too dense vapor and high flavor liquid consumption. It is also mentioned that when the liquid is about to end, you may taste some burnt odor, and the same drag produces different amounts of vapor.
Moreover, some users are not satisfied with the quality of cartridges and accumulators: they should be substituted too often prompting extra costs.
Few people complained on high nicotine amount, because for the majority of users it is an advantage and only for some of them it is a drawback. Most of the customers liked the taste and found it satisfying.
The Root of the Matter: Is the Vuse Worth Buying It?
As for e-cigarettes in general, The Vuse appears to be well-manufactured and simple-to-use device that can be a worthy alternative to tobacco. However, as well as models sold by FIN Electronic and VChic, the Vuse e-cigarette can’t be used as a reliable and safe smoking cessation option. Said differently, they are not able to cure your nicotine addiction.
The Vuse and other e-cigs requiring cartridges are a cheap method of stopping tobacco smoking, but sooner or later it’s better to move over to a vaporizer of a higher standard. It will certainly cost you much more for the first time (minimum price for basic kit is 50$), but in the longer term the cost of a full-on vaporizer and it’s service is significantly lower than of the Vuse and other similar e-cigs. Full-on vaporizers allow you to control the volume of vapor and liquid flow. Ant what is more, you’ll be able to mix the liquids of different flavors according to your personal taste.
And finally, you’ll never need to go to a shop looking for a cartridge and a place to utilize it. Unfortunately, according rumors, vaporizers may be legally banned in the USA soon, giving R.J. Reynolds advance in the market.
