NJOY is one of the biggest brands of electronic cigarettes available in the United States. You can find them both online and in a multitude of local retailers. They have recently made a big push to get their name out there with a ton of advertising. As it has been a while since we put their products to the test, we wanted to revisit their e cigs for our latest review to see if they had made any changes.
For this review we used rechargeable NJOY e cigarettes. While we have had good experiences with their disposables in the past, dedicated vapers use rechargeables most of the time so we focused our review here. NJOY chooses to keep their hardware simple. They offer one size battery that is capable of producing 3.6 volts. This is enough power to give you plenty of vapor per puff. In our test we were happy with the vapor output. It was enough to satisfy our yearning for a good vape without being overbearing. The cartomizers are standard size for the industry. Refill cartomizer packs come in quantities of 5. NJOY says that each 5-pack is equivalent to about a carton of cigarettes, meaning that each individual cartomizer equals about two packs of traditional smokes. We found these claims to be correct. If anything they are just shy of their two pack claim, however we often take big drags when we vape, which will reduce the amount of vapor from any brand. Their charging options are also very standard. The Express Kit that NJOY currently offers comes with a standard USB charger. While they do offer a Universal Charger which allows you to recharge with a wall plug or in your vehicle, this device must be purchased separately. It would make for a great purchase if you find that NJOY is going to be your brand, but we would like to see this option included with the starter kit as chargers are such necessary components to vaping.
Vapor and Flavor
If you choose to go with the rechargeable you have two flavor options from NJOY: Traditional Tobacco or Menthol. NJOY did a great job developing the flavors. They both give you what you are looking for in the two most popular flavors out there. One issue that we do have is that they offer more flavors with their disposable electronic cigarettes. We would definitely like to see these additional flavors offered in cartomizer refills and not just in the disposables. We have tried the Traditional Gold flavor offered in the disposable in the past and it is extremely close to the flavor of one of the most popular tobacco cigarettes out there. We’ll let you compare the packaging to see which one we mean. The flavors offered in replaceable cartomizers can stand up against tobacco or menthol offerings from anyone else, but with all of the options that we have from others we would like to see NJOY make some additions. They do offer three nicotine levels: 0.6%, 1.2% and 1.8% so that you can choose the vapor that is right for you, and even ween yourself off of nicotine if you choose.
The Bottom Line
Overall NJOY makes a fantastic electronic cigarette. Their hardware is well built and reliable, and their flavors are well put together. The option to buy refills both online and in a local retailer makes them easy to get a hold of when you run out. We would like to see some more batteries and flavors released, but what they do offer is top notch. The pricing is affordable, their Express Kit shown below is currently just $21.99 which gives you good value as e cig pricing goes. At the current time they are even offering a free disposable (you pay the shipping) to anyone who wants to give their brand a try. As they are an industry leader we expect that they will introduce additional flavors and accessories in the future. No promises there, but it only makes sense that an electronic cigarette manufacturer with their experience and capabilities would eventually beef up their product offerings. Visit them online for more information or to pick up your starter kit. Then get in on the conversation by rating them via our 5 star rating system or leaving us a comment below.
