Smokestik has been out for several years now. In the beginning they were known for having very high quality hardware, which they did in fact have. While they still use high quality parts to build their e cigs, the rest of the industry has caught up. SmokeStiks are still very durable and deliver good amounts of vapor, but they do not have the edge that they used to. Having said the quality is not an issue. They are still among the top brands in terms of battery quality (the more expensive kits come with 250 mAh batteries which will hold a charge for quite a long time), vapor delivery, and durability. The cartomizerss are rated at 200 puffs each, which was about right during our test. We had over 20 cartomizers for the review and did not get a single dud in the batch. Again, this is a good sign as it shows that Smokestik is still purchasing better materials for their devices, and keeping up with brands like Blu and V2. The different finishes are a highly welcomed addition. We vaped with Jet Black, Pink, and the metallic finished Pitbull batteries. All lasted through heavy days of vaping, delivered voltage evenly, and looked great doing it. The two piece devices screw and unscrew easily and hold together well. We literally did not have any hardware issues while testing the products. It was good to see that there were only improvements in the hardware between this review and our last, as some cig-a-like brands that SmokeStik used to compete have lost their focus on quality materials over the last two years. While the established brand improved several fell short and we are glad to see that SmokeStik is not among these companies.
Vapor and Flavor
We already discussed tat the devices deliver vapor very well. Now its time to go over the results of our taste test. Smokestik offers six flavors: Tobacco, Menthol, Cherry, Vanilla, Strawberry and Cappuccino. Each flavor is available without any nicotine at all, or in mild, medium, or strong to suite your needs and cravings. If you prefer a longer lasting cartomizer order the XL cartos as they have more liquid. The flavors are average to good. To be honest none stand out exceptionally, however they all taste just fine. This sin’t necessarily a knock on the brand as the flavors are adequate, but adequate is the best word that we can come up with. We hope to see more mixing and blending from SmokeStik in the future.
Smokestik makes an all around good e cigarette. They are perfect for beginners, but deliver enough vapor to satisfy an experienced vaper or to fill in for a while in between more elaborate PVs and mods. The price is on the higher side but in this case you are getting a well-built device that functions reliably. In our opinion that does represent value, even though there are less expensive options. The flavors are good enough to get you started, but do lack the variety offered by a few other competitors in the cig-a-like category. All in all we would recommend Smokestik to anyone looking to give vapor a try or looking for a backup e cig to keep around the house, or in the car or office.
