Overall – 4.5/5 – The Safe Cig is one of the best on the electronic cigarette market and certainly gets high marks for a number of categories. There are only a few things that might need to be improved, but the company is a forward thinking, progressive one and those minor problems will be corrected. Another thing the company has going for it is the fact that it has a CEO who is a firm advocate for research and increased safety for the entire industry. Improvements should always be expected and counted on with the Safe Cig. New products have been added and are making The Safe Cig even easier to use and to keep charged and ready to go while on the go. In addition to these changes, the batteries have been improved, making a good battery life into a much better one. One of these new additions is called the Blink, a cigarette package sized charger that can keep the person on the go charged up and ready to go. Another new innovation is The Safe Cig mini, which is a much smaller, lighter version of the industry leading product and is perfect for those want to eliminate some of the bulk of the others.
Presentation and Packaging – 5/5 – Considered to be one of the most attractive electronic cigarette packages on the market, The Safe Cig is slickly packaged in a shrink wrapped package and nicely designed box. Shrink wrapped packaging can assure you that your electronic cigarettes are going to arrive undamaged. In addition to the outer packaging, the inner packaging is well organized and easy to remove items from. Another bonus in this category is the handy, quick start guide that is included along with the standard user’s manual. This is much shorter and allows you to get started without having to read a long book. What is inside of the package depends on whether you have option for the basic or the deluxe package, but will include more than what is needed to get started with The Safe Cig electronic cigarette. Once you get the chance, though, there is a more in depth booklet to read through that tells you exactly how to use The Safe Cig to get the most out of it. The book also includes trouble-shooting tips to use in case there are any problems.
Flavor – 4.5/5 – Many smokers and former smokers have agreed that The Safe Cig delivers a bold punch of flavor that mimics if not rivals that of the traditional cigarette. It is not an overwhelming taste, however, but rather one that is pleasant, almost unexpected in its cleanliness and freshness. With other electronic cigarettes, there is an occasional medicinal, chemical or artificial flavor, but The Safe Cig has eliminated those problems quite nicely. Smokers are also happy to get the flavor that they want without having to have the smell of old tobacco on their hands, hair or clothing and without bothering others around them.
Flavor Variety – 2.5/5 – There are many electronic cigarette companies that are going crazy adding different flavors to their rosters; however industry experts predict that this might cause a problem. To prevent any of these future problems, The Safe Cig has chosen to stay with three flavors: Traditional, Classic Tobacco and Menthol. While these are certainly well done, for those who want more flavor choices, The Safe Cig is not the electronic cigarette company for you. For this limited flavor choice, we had to unfortunately give a much lower score in this category.
Vapor Volume – 4.5/5 – The Safe Cig has some of the best vapor volume in the electronic cigarette industry. Unlike others that require strenuous draws or numerous puffs to get even a moderate bit of vapor built up, The Safe Cig provides enough thick, almost smoke-like vapor to fill the mouth, throat and lungs on a single draw and provides that same amount of vapor continuously. Bonus points were earned in this category because the refill cartridges last so much longer than others in the industry. Under normal usage and conditions, the typical cartridge might equal as much as two full packs of cigarettes.
Battery Life – 5/5 – The standard battery that comes with The Safe Cig is one of the top scorers in the electronic cigarette industry, lasting as long as six full hours on a single charge. In addition, the company has just released its Blink, a portable charging unit that is the size and shape of a regular pack of cigarettes. Blink comes in three colors (red, blue and silver) and will provide five charges until it needs to be charged up itself. Each starter package of The Safe Cig arrives with three batteries and a car charger as well as a spare UBS charger. The car charger and the Blink unit are perfect for people who are out and about and don’t want to be without their electronic cigarettes.
Value – 4.5/5 – A small deduction in points in this category comes from the fact that there are some wider gaps in options and pricing with The Safe Cig than there are with other brands of electronic cigarettes. However, The Safe Cig does get higher grades in the other categories because of continued improvements in terms of function and safety. Some customers are thrilled that the company only offers typical cigarette flavors, while others wish that there were more tastes available. The cartridges are longer lasting than some brands, with each equaling as much as two full packs of cigarettes.
Shipping – 4/5 – The Safe Cig offers free shipping, which typically takes five to eight days to arrive. If you would like your package to arrive more quickly, however, you can upgrade your shipping option to USPS Priority shipping, which takes three days for a small fee. The Safe Cig strives for excellent customer service, trying to always ship orders out 24 to 48 hours after they are received. A tracking number is generated and can be used to follow your package through the carrier’s website after the third day. Customer service representatives can explain shipping options to you while on the phone, helping you to decide which you should choose for your own area. The option that you choose might also depend on how quickly you would like your product to arrive. However, when ordering refill cartridges, make sure that you order far enough in advance so that you do not run out. You always want to make sure that you have The Safe Cig, charged and ready to go.
