I’ve been a pack a day smoker for 20 years. I’ve tried patches and even the store bought E-cigs from major retailers like Walmart places like that.
I purchased the Blu-E-cig type called FIN they have a total of 1.6% Nicotine which is useless for a pack a day smoker or more. Plus the flavors i’m sorry even the ones we like tobacco flavors are always not quite toboacco. After a week of smoking the tobacco flavors I was like there is no point in this I want to quit tobacco why would I want to taste it too? Back to the point this E-cig lasted all of half an hour I was back to smoking that quick.
Back in August or so my friend came over and he also tried all those cartridge based E-cigs none worked for him either. He was a 2-3 pack a day smoker. This time he bought a new E-cig at first I was like no way i’m buying that thing it’s big wouldn’t want to carry it around and chances are it won’t work.
2 weeks later he comes by and he’s still not smoking that E-cig is working! I was sold if a 2-3 pack a day smoker could stop using that E-cig it’s going to work for a pack a day smoker. And I didn’t care if it was a bit bigger than I liked if I could stop smoking it’s worth it.
My wife & I went ahead and purchased the same E-cig the Kangertech EVOD cost us $70 for the starter kit included 2 -E-cigs ,1-charger,5- cartomizers & a 30ml bottle of E-liquid which lasts 2 people about 2 weeks. Some get more than that out of a 30ml bottle depends on your smoking habit.
A 30ml bottle costs $15 we figure that 2 bottles a month @ $30. Compared to $240 a month we were spending on cigarettes that’s BIG savings.
I’m not going to get into health benefits because that’s a whole different ball game. Point is no one really knows the damage E-liquids may cause in years to come. NO E-cigs are FDA approved. So don’t listen to the BS that smoking a E-Cig is better for you. No one truly knows that. Is it better than all the tar you get from a cigarette? the answer is yes.
The EVOD requires the cartomizer to be changed out about every week. They seem to last about a week for me.
The cartomizers cost anywhere from $1-$3 a piece. Shops sell them in packs usually 5 or more. You will want a 1.8ohm type don’t get any less. 2.5ohms work fine my package came with 5 of them.
Cartomizer for the EVOD:
We recently went and bought new E-Cigs. Went with the Kangertech E-Smart E-cig it’s a smaller form factor.
The E-Smart can be purchased at Innevape in 2 pack choice of colors for $40 comes with 2-E-Smart E-cigs,1-charger, Choice of 1- 5ml bottle of E-Liquid.
A 5ml bottle costs $8 separately and can last from 1 week to a week and a half again depends on your smoking habit.
We like the E-Smart best it doesn’t require a weekly cartomizer replacement and it hits better than the EVOD. I should say the E-Smart keeps a steady hit constant through out battery life. The EVOD has 5-6 solid hits as the battery and cartomizer get used the weaker the hits get through out the charge.
We have been getting our liquid from Innevape and purchased our E-Smarts from there as well.
All their liquid is made in USA and in a Laboratory.

Their cost is like the rest but they also offer discounts if you follow them on Facebook ,Twitter or Youtube.
I’ve tried a few different liquids and so far Innevape is the BEST!
UPDATE as of 01/03/2014 still not smoking and I am down to 12mg of nicotine. I’m very pleased I did slip up on Xmas day was drinking and smoked a cig but I won’t ever again Soooo Nasty!!
