More Info

*Ploom does emit a vapor that is not completely odorless, but the odor does not smell like burning tobacco either. The smell that Ploom vapor emits is very non-intrusive and most people find the scent appealing. The scent that is given off is from the flavorings that are added to the tobacco or herbal mixture.

** Plooms Peppermint and other herbal blends actually freshen its user’s breath.

*** Both electronic cigarettes and Ploom create less waste than tobacco cigarettes. Ploom pods are 100% recyclable.

    Pros: No plugging in. Fantastic taste and scent. Looks different than anything else.
    Cons: Can be messy to fill. Gets hot to the touch.

    The tobacco flavors taste wonderful and smell like a nice pipe without offensive burning smell. It looks so much different from a cigarette that it turns heads without getting the dirty looks some people give when they think someone might be smoking.

    The draw is easy and light, the vapor production is huge when not inhaling, but when vapor is inhaled not much vapor is expressed on exhale. This is really a good thing, as it is a little more stealth in public and doesn’t get the negative attention in restaurants and bars that I have gotten with my ecig. I like that the first thing that people comment on is the nice smell that it emits. I get that with some ecig flavors too, but the ploom tobacco pods let off a lot of scent, but not much lingering scent.

    About the cons: I follow the directions for filling with butane, but sometimes I still get a mess on my hands and all over the device. The butane wipes off easily, but this thing cannot be filled on the go because I never know when i will have butane spraying on my hands. The unit gets hot, I would not use while driving or out and about.

    This is really a great product, and I will continue to use after a nice meal at home or in a restaurant, cafe or bar while relaxing with friends and a drink.
