Charlie’s Club is a new e-cig club that offers monthly subscription packages so you’ll never run out of cartomizers again. They offer three different memberships based on how much you typically smoke. Each month, a new supply of cartomizers are delivered directly to your door, meaning you never have to go online or in stores to buy refills, Charlie’s Club takes care of everything for you.
When you join Charlie’s Club, they send you a free member’s package, which includes everything you need to start enjoying your new e-cig membership. The free member’s package comes with a wall adapter, 2 USB chargers, 2 batteries, and a member information booklet. Unfortunately, there is no choice in battery color for the member’s package, all batteries come in black. However, I really liked the design and packaging of the Charlie’s Club member’s package and their cartomizers. Since both the batteries and the cartomizers are black, it gives the product a very sleek and attractive design. The tip of the battery lights up red when you inhale, giving it more of a realistic feel. Another thing I was impressed with is their customer service. If for some reason your batteries or chargers stop working, simply contact them by e-mail or phone and they will ship new parts to you for free.
Charlie’s Club offers three levels of membership: Silver, Gold, or Platinum. Membership levels are graded based on how much you typically smoke. The Silver membership package is for people who typically smoke half a pack a day. It comes with 15 cartridges per month for $34.99 per month with a $5 shipping fee. The Gold membership package is geared towards smokers who typically smoke a pack a day. This package comes with 25 cartridges for $49.99 per month. The Platinum membership package is for those who smoke about 2 packs a day, and includes 50 cartridges per month for $69.99. One nice thing about joining the Gold or Platinum memberships is that you get free shipping each month. It may seem kind of expensive, but each cartomizer is advertised as the equivalent to about 2 packs of cigarettes, so you will definitely have enough cartomizers to get you through the month, and then some. In my opinion, Charlie’s Club is a pretty good value for all that you’re getting.

The cartomizers come in 3 different flavors: Charlie’s Choice, Charlie’s Green, and Charlie’s Blue. For my welcome package and membership, I chose the Charlie’s Green and Charlie’s Blue flavors. Charlie’s Green is a sweet minty flavor. You can definitely taste the menthol while inhaling, but the taste doesn’t really linger. Those that are used to smoking e-cigs or traditional cigarettes with lots of menthol may not be super impressed with this flavor, since the menthol taste is not very strong. The Charlie’s Blue cartomizers are described as being a sun-cured tobacco flavor. I thought it was very smooth and clean tasting like the Charlie’s Green flavor, but reminded me of a light cigarette. Charlie’s Choice is the third flavor option, which is described as being smooth and sweet, but bold. I thought both flavors that I tried were extremely smooth and pleasant tasting. One thing I missed however was the lack of throat hit while inhaling. I’m normally used to smoking over a pack a day, which is why the throat hit may seem minimal to me. I’m sure those who smoke less than a pack a day may have a different experience. The cartomizers allow a satisfying amount of vapor, but you won’t be blowing out clouds like you see with mechanical mods. Although I enjoyed how smooth and sweet these flavors tasted, I wish they had a bigger selection of flavors to choose from instead of just 3.
Overall, I was pretty impressed with my Charlie’s Club member’s package and membership. I really liked how they send you all of the hardware for free. You only have to pay for the cartomizers, which I think is a really good deal. I wish you could choose between different battery colors, but I must say that the black design is definitely eye-catching and looks very nice. Although I wish they had more flavors of cartomizers, the taste of the two flavors I tried was very smooth and tasty. It’s definitely an e-cig that you can smoke all day with no problems. I also really liked that you never have to go online and order cartomizers, Charlie’s Club takes care of that for you each month. Even though Charlie’s Club may sound expensive at first, you really are getting your money’s worth for a quality product.
