While Smoke 51 is widely available at gas stations and malls, it is also a brand with a bad reputation. The company has been around for a while, selling starter kits before most people even knew what electronic cigarettes were. This gave them a foothold in the industry, but did it translate into a quality product over time? Read our review below to find out.
What You Get
Smoke 51 offers one of the most no frills starter kits out there. For $69.95, you get a rechargeable battery, a USBB charger, three flavor cartridges, and an atomizer. That’s very little for quite a bit of money.
This was the only kit that Smoke 51 used to offer, but they have expanded their selection over the past few years. Now you can also buy an Express Kit for $89.95. This one comes with a carrying case, two cartomizers, a battery, and a wireless charger. The cartomizer has an atomizer and a flavor cartridge combined into a single item.
There are a few other starter kits, some offering different colors and others throwing in some additional batteries, cartomizers and chargers. But they all feel overpriced for what little they offer.
The Quality of the Products
Smoke 51 has always had subpar products. Their vapor production is low, and unless you know what you are doing, you can destroy your atomizers in a few puffs. Smoke 51 has managed to fix this problem somewhat by including instruction manuals in their current kits that actually explain the way new users should vape. But it still doesn’t take care of the problem of low quality parts that tend to break down.
The batteries are hit or miss. In our tests, we never got out more than 100-150 puffs from a single atomizer. Industry standard is nearly twice that, which makes these batteries ridiculously overpriced. And we’ve heard of batteries not working at all fresh from the packaging, though ours worked just fine in our trials.
Is It Worth Your Money?
If ever an electronic cigarette product felt overpriced, Smoke 51 is it. From subpar batteries to bare bones starter kits, the company offers nothing that makes it appealing to consumers who know what they should be getting. If you are just trying e-cigs for the first time, and Smoke 51 is your first experience, you may be turned off to electronic cigarettes entirely. That’s how abysmal these products are. We can’t turn you away from them quick enough.
- The packaging is somewhat stylish
- The price is too high
- The products are of low quality
- Very little value is to be had here
- Flavors are bland and uninteresting
You would be hard pressed to find a worse electronic cigarette brand out there than Smoke 512. Just because they are easily found and readily available does not mean that they are decent products. Most retailers only carry them because of the large percentage of the sales they receive.
