Volt - Pro Starter Kit
- Product Review (submitted on July 3, 2012):
I stumbled across the VOLT and reviews while researching reviews for another product and decided to check it out.
I am glad I did.
I have vaped off and on since 2008 and never could stick with it. Why? I was never into huge mods, and the stick types from just a few years ago were ok, - but I seemed to always fall into a grey area where...
1) equipment was ok (just) but didn't last or
2)equipment lasted but always left me wanting just a little more. Example: for 4 years no matter how successful at leaving analogs behind by day, I still "needed" the analog first thing with coffee, last thing before bed, and once in awhile during the day cause the vape just wouldn't "kick" enough for me.
Translation - I am not only an addicted smoker, I crave the buzz of the poisons too, and especially need the full thick feeling in the chest on inhale that only a real cigarette, or very good vapor juice AND equipment can provide. I didn't want more nicotine, I wanted thicker vapor and equipment that lasted a reasonable lifetime without abuse, without looking like I was huffin a maglite.
Tried a 601c PCC, kr808, 808 pcc, Elegant, Go-Go, and various cheap stuff when I started. Ended up with a ton of miscelaneous pieces ' cause a pcc died, or battery, or something would break as part of a set and all the while, circling back to analogs due to lack of satisfaction or equipment failures.
Enter the Volt. I ordered on Saturday, it arrived on Monday, and as soon as I tried it out I knew I had a winner. I ordered the Pro kit, but waited 'till Sunday for a follow up order of spare batts. and cartos.
So when it arrived I knew it would be at least Thurs. (due to Wed. Jul. 4th holiday) before the cartos and spare batts. got here and figured it (the Volt) would be like (as good as ) my old 808 and I could "get used to" vaping while I waited.
SURPRISE -The thing came out of the box vaping as well or BETTER than my old kr808 EVER did, AND the same (RY4) flaver that vaped so-so before was at least 30% better flavor and rich thick vape!
I put down the Marlboro 72's at 2:30pm with 3 in a box and 2 full packs left and now 24 hrs. later still didn't touch any. - (Well, I did fire one up this afternoon out of curiosity, but after 2 pufs threw it out - and can't believe how nasty they really are)
I passed the tests,especially the big 2 - I went to bed with a quick 3 or 4 vapes and had coffee this morning with no problem thinking I needed a "real" cigarette to get going.
I believe there have been vast improvements in performance of battery and cartomizer in the last 2 1/2 years, as well as the quality of the vapejuice that are all combining to provide a better longer lasting product in the VOLT stick type product that would suprise (pleasantly) any objective person.
I now have the all day convenience and capability many before provided, with a key differnce - rich, quality vape in flavors that keep me OFF the analogs - even with that 1st cup o' morning joe.
GET YOUR SELF A VOLT - even veteran vapers like a lightweight easy to handle stick style, but for the newbie - YOU JUST CAN'T GO WRONG WITH A VOLT - it would have saved me 2 years of extra smoking and a whole lotta cash had it been my 1st vape equipment!
Sorry so long, but I LIKE IT and never wrote a review to or for anybody before now.
P.S. I now exclusivly use the Volt and a Cig Easy Elite.
The Volt is my every day all day vape and the elite my go to for when I need something that does not look like a cigarette.
I threw out ALL my old kits with missing components or broke after 6 weeks stuff, and only kept chargers, cartos, and useful stuff.
The VOLT vapes just about the same(90 to 95%) as the Elite with a rich, thick, tasty mouthful of vapor (depending on the juice, mix, and flavor) but for all you newbie's - stick with Smokeless Image and check out their X2 if you want a nice uprgrade in all day battery life - if I had known about them first, I would.
I use the 73mm manual and the 65mm auto batts. - both good, and the 73's last longer, but I have different uses for the two.
I have the standard PCC which is fine for me.
Happy Vaping! - Scott in NC
