Overall Score – 4/5 - There were only some very minor problems with the Green Smoke e-cigs that kept them from earning a perfect score. Some of those problems include the pricing and the value of these e-cigarettes. There is some dispute about how long the cartridges last, which varies from customer to customer and can depend on a number of factors including how deeply it is inhaled and how often it is used. There are a number of categories where the Green Smoke e-cigarette is far ahead of the competition, though, which has pushed its overall score much higher.
Presentation and Packaging – 2.5/5 - Unfortunately, this is one area where the Green Smoke electronic cigarettes can definitely use some major improvements. The packaging itself is bland and a little boring, nothing but a plain green box. At first glance, you might confuse it for something other than a package containing an electronic cigarette. Inside of the package, everything is packed nicely and securely, including the flavor cartridges which are triple sealed to keep the flavor fresh.
Flavor – 4.5/5 - This is a category where the Green Smoke electronic cigarettes gets top ratings because the flavor is rich and thick. There are a number of different levels of nicotine to choose from, which can also influence the level of the taste that you are getting from each inhale. Nicotine levels range from zero all the way up to 24 milligrams, which offers the most intense flavor. Smokers who are trying to quit might start with the higher range of nicotine and then move into the lower levels so that they can gradually ease themselves off of it, eventually reaching the zero level. They can do this without sacrificing any of the flavors and the sensation of actually smoking as they would with gums, patches or other smoking cessation kits. While Green Smoke is not intended to be used as a cessation tool, there are many people who find that it works quite well for just that purpose.
Flavor Variety 4/5 - The Green Smoke e-cigarette has seven different flavors. While some are sweeter than others, the average smoker will be happy to know that the most popular flavors are those that are most like regular cigarettes. Those flavors include Menthol Ice, Vanilla Dreams Absolute Tobacco, Red Label Tobacco, Tobacco Gold, Mocha Mist, and Smooth Chocolate. On the Green Smoke website, there is helpful advice for how to choose the right tobacco flavor to approximate the flavor of the smoker’s usual brand, however most smokers quickly find that the Green Smoke’s flavor is much better and cleaner than that of the cigarettes that they once used to smoke. In addition, many smokers find the other flavors to be an interesting break from the same old tobacco taste and may enjoy using them as an after meal treat that does not make them gain weight.
Vapor Volume 5/5 - In this category, Green Smoke knocks it out of the ballpark, scoring a perfect score for the rich, thick clouds of satisfying vapor that it creates with just an easy inhale. Green Smoke e-cigarettes are an industry leader in this category, achieving the levels of vapor that others often strive but fail to reach. Smokers, especially those who are turning to the electronic cigarettes for a legal alternative or to help them to quit the habit once and for all, are interested in vapor that fills their mouth and lungs and feels the most natural to them. In some brands, to get near this amount of vapor, you have to draw very hard, which is not only exhausting but can also limit the length of battery life and may necessitate the purchase of more and more cartridges.
Battery Life 4.5/5 - The battery life of the Green Smoke electronic cigarettes is top notch, shipped at a nearly 70 percent charge, which is ready to go right out of the box. It can quickly be charged to full, though, and will last much longer than comparable batteries on the market. The starter package and the deluxe package offer both a short and long battery. In addition, the kit comes with a USB cord that connects the electronic cigarette to your computer for charging on the go or while at the office. The design of the battery with the Green Smoke is ingenious, allowing it to be activated only when the smoker is actually inhaling rather than being turned on and left on. The manufacturer recommends unscrewing the cartridge from the electronic cigarette when it is not going to be used for any length of time to improve the battery life as well.
Value – 2.5/5 - In the value category, Green Smoke e-cigarette is on the fence. The grade would be slightly higher because there a number of ways to get the price lowered, however the price is still fairly substantial even with these discounts. A discount coupon brings the price down by as much as $100 and free shipping also helps, but the fact remains that the Green Smoke e-cigarette remains one of the most expensive options on the market. There are a number of different sized packages to choose from including a starter pack, a deluxe pack and the bonus size, which has two of everything – great when there are two smokers in the same household. Special packages are often offered during different times of the year, including holidays or special events. There is some discrepancy for how long the Green Smoke e-cigarette filters and cartridges last for each smoker with some customers saying that it is roughly equal to one and a half packs of cigarettes while others say that it is much less, only ten to fifteen cigarettes. This gap can be explained by individual behaviors such robustly inhaling or frequently using the e-cigarette. In addition, leaving them exposed to the air can cause the flavor to dissipate slightly and may lead to needing more and more cartridges. Compared to the price of regular cigarettes, especially the name brands, even as a higher priced e-cigarette, the Green Smoke comes out ahead.
Shipping – 5/5 – The Green Smoke e-cigarette has free shipping, which is always a welcome fact. In addition, shipping is fast and customer service can assist with tracking and inform you of any delays. In most cases, all orders are shipped out on the same day they are received. If they are not, they go out the next day and are always shipped in the fastest method so that all orders are received quickly. To be sure that you are not running out of cartridges, it is advised that you reorder at least one full week before they will run out.
