Overall Score – 4/5 – Let’s be honest – the one main drawback is the international shipping. It is difficult to consider NUCIG electronic cigarettes as a fair competitor when there are other brand options that would be shipped within the U.S. In fact for those who prefer to buy only American made products there are even some electronic cigarettes that fall into this category. Aside from the geographical issue, electronic cigarette is a top contender among electronic cigarettes. The look is a little basic but sleek and modern. The value is more than reasonable. When it comes to flavor NUCIG is one of the few brands that offer both quantity of choices and quality of flavor. For most users, this alone is more than enough reason to opt for the NUCIG brand. Not to mention the other determining detail that many people like is the vapor volume. When it comes down to what matters for an electronic cigarette, the NUCIG brand has got it all fairly well covered. This could also be a great choice for those who are just starting off with their first electronic cigarette kit.
Presentation & Packaging – 4/5 – There isn’t much to say about the presentation and packaging for NUCIG electronic cigarettes. On the plus side it is clean and sleek and simple. In fact, maybe it is too simple. The main choice to make when it comes to the look of your NUCIG starter kit is black or white. This already should give some clue as to what we mean when we say basic and just how basic that is. The electronic cigarette pack was designed to look and feel like a real pack of cigarettes and we certainly agree that this has been accomplished. This does score higher than brands that have gone too far trying to make the pack look good and instead making it look cheesy or cheap. Also potential users should know this is a two part system, which tends to be more popular because it tends to have less chance of a leak or similar problem.
Flavor Score – 3.5/5 – While the flavor didn’t bowl us over, it was certainly something that could be described as pleasant and enjoyable. Looking online it seems the users reviews are quite mixed with some claiming the flavor is the best on the market and others stating how disappointed they were. From our personal experience we would have to say the results were somewhere in the middle. It was slightly weaker than what we had hoped for. On the other hand, while the taste was actually good, it could use a little more intensity to it.
Flavor Choices – 5/5 – Of all the electronic cigarette brands reviewed, this could very well be the most extensive variety we have seen. On the one hand, being purists who tend to like tobacco flavored electronic cigarettes the variety of flavor choices doesn’t do much for us, yet we realize it is important for a review because some former smokers do find this very important. On the flip side even we were impressed by the creative variety of flavors users can choose from. Alongside the necessary basics of classic tobacco and menthol comes a regular catalog of choices including strawberry, apple, pomegranate, pear, peach, kiwi, almond and coconut. The list goes on from there, but you can be sure if you are looking for it you can find it in the NUCIG catalog.
Vapor Volume – 4/5 – We are pleased with what we found when testing the NUCIG electronic cigarette vapor volume. It could be best described as dense, thick and somehow even rich and creamy. Similar to a good quality brand of regular cigarettes in fact. For those who crave the feel of a thick plume of smoke, the NUCIG is certainly one that comes pretty close to recreating what it is you want. There are some brands that offer a slightly fuller vapor volume, but for us this is among the top of the list.
Battery Life – 4/5 – From our experience the NUCIG electronic cigarettes had an impressive battery life. While there are other brands we tried that still had a longer battery life, this brand held up quite well against the competition. The battery life also did not seem to impact the vapor volume or if it did it was only slightly. With some of the competition, you discover a noticeable decrease in vapor volume when the battery life dwindles down. This did not seem to be the case for this brand, at least not in our opinion.
Value – 4/5 – One thing we liked a great deal was the option to shop for starter kits, value kits and full kits. Whichever way you choose to shop, however, you will find the price versus what you get quite reasonable. Any of the kits get you what you need at a more than fair and reasonable price. In fact, even adding on or ordering spare parts for backup can be included and at a more than reasonable price. As far as how NUCIG stands up against the competition, this one is certainly at the lower end of the spectrum as far as pricing. What you get for the amount you pay is well worth it too. You also have a choice of different types of starter kit options. For instance, there is a NUCIG Advanced Pro 3 Starter Kit or the Ultimate Starter Kit. Options include pink, black and “real look” for those who want their smokeless electronic cigarette to look like the real thing.
Shipping – 3/5 – Keep in mind when ordering from NUCIG the one drawback is that your order will be shipped as an international order. This can end up being quite expensive. So, while the value and price of the product is reasonable, the shipping costs often make up for it. There does appear to be an offering of free shipping at the time this is being written though. Without placing an order, it is difficult to find details on whether or not that applies to international orders. If this were the case, the score would be higher. Even for international orders, this shipment did arrive rather quickly.
