Marketed as the “Low cost leader in quality e cigarettes”, Zero Cig comes in a variety of flavors and strengths, clove being my favorite and Jane really liked the watermelon. Each cartridge is advertised as being the equivalent of 30 regular cigarettes.
The vapor cloud produced is very satisfying with little to no effort on the part of the user thanks to Zero Cig’s MaxDRAW technology. The battery life of these products gets a definite commendation on my part, as it usually lasts all day with normal use. The battery itself also comes with a light-up LED tip to enhance the user’s feel of smoking.
ZeroCig offers a number of starter kit options for every consumer as well, so you are able to choose the level you feel most comfortable with. I’ve tried two different Zero Cig starter kits in very different price ranges. Zero Cig’s Express kit comes with just the bare essentials. You get one battery, two cartridges, and a USB charger. This kit is a real steal at only $19.99 so it is a good entry-level vape kit if you just want to see what e-cigs are really about.
I also tried the Premium Starter Kit, which goes for $79.99. This kit was my preferred choice because it has a lot more stuff included. You get 3 batteries, 10 cartridges in your choice of flavors, a carrying case in either black or white, USB charger, wall charger, car charger, and a premium box to store everything in.
One of the first things I noticed when using Zero Cigs was the size. The cartridges are smaller than most brands, which is a unique feature. I thought the cartridges were a little difficult to screw onto the batteries, but it wasn’t a big deal. In my kit, the cartridges were white and my batteries were white. The tip lights up red when you are vaping.
Overall, I felt like the vapor production was good, but it had a very weak throat hit. A lot of people (especially women) prefer a milder throat hit so this would be a good brand for those individuals. The MaxDRAW cartridges were a big improvement over the older Zero Cig cartridges. The flavors are better and they produce a lot more vapor.
Review continues after kit comparison table...
I also want to mention another kit that I just recently tried called the Georgie 2.0. This kit is an ego model that is really affordable at $49.99. It comes with a 650mah battery, a 2.4ml tank, a USB charger, and a wall charger. The Georgie 2.0 performed much better than the other ZeroCig kits, even though they were definitely sufficient. This unit gives you a lot more vapor, a stronger throat hit, and more powerful flavor because you are using the tank technology. I also like that you can choose your battery color. They offer black, steel, and pink (which Jane loved!).
Now let’s talk about the cartridges for a minute. You can get ZeroCig cartridges in a bunch of different flavors and I sampled several of them. Your options include Tobacco Original, Tobacco Special Blend, Canadian Tobacco, Menthol Ice, Mocha, Pina Colada, Banana, Strawberry, Chocolate, Clove, and Watermelon. As I mentioned earlier, Clove as my favorite. It tasted just like a clove cigarette.
While ZeroCig claims that their cartridges last as long as 30 cigarettes, I don’t totally agree. In my experience, it was probably closer to 20-25 cigarettes per cartridge, but it really varies and some of the guys that smoke less normally were able to have their e-cigarette last a little longer. It really all depends on how much vapor you draw with each puff, but making sure you get the right nicotine level is also key.
There is a great 30-day money back guarantee with a 100% satisfaction guaranty for each kit sold. One thing to point out, at the price point of under $20, you get only a USB charger and I would recommend adding a wall charger if you are not around a computer much. Wall chargers and car chargers are pretty inexpensive and you will use them frequently!
This is definitely a product that I would recommend for anyone looking for an affordable budget e-cigarette that will perform consistently. It’s definitely a good pick!
