A little test.

I ordered another battery and some standard cartridges for the Njoy because I know someone who has tried to stop smoking tobacco and repeatedly failed. So I'll give them a charged battery and a full cartridge to try. If they don't like it they can give me the battery back. If they do, they can buy a kit for less than a month's cost of smoking - if they are on a pack a day it's less than nine days' worth. And still give me the battery back because they'll have their own then.

Then I'll move on to the next one who says they are addicted to tobacco. Eventually I'll have enough for some statistics.

I had to order more cartridges because I like menthol, so I have menthol cartridges. I even have menthol filters for rolling. Most smokers don't like menthol so I need some ordinary ones to pass around.

The More and Consulate cigarettes used to be favourites but they used weak tobacco so I just ended up smoking more. Menthol filters in rollups are, to me, the best of both worlds. Both NJoy and Titan have menthol options.

Let's see how it goes.

You should put some links up so we can buy these things and test them out ourselves.

Sorry for being so thick. Can you get a 'hit' of nicotine or not from this gadget? If so I'll buy one.

Don't forget that you don't have to use new cartridges, LI. It's even cheaper if you buy bottles of nicotine liquid and refill, or just drip onto the atomiser and use a blank mouthpiece.

And if you like menthol then adding a crystal or two to a bottle of liquid is easy (but watch out, crystals are very potent).

Anon. you can get a hit but it depends on your tolerance and what strength liquid you use. Ecigs don't deliver nicotine as efficiently as smoke so may be disappointing if you're expecting the same experience. Still worth a try if you have a few pennies to spare. If you don't like it you could sell it on at a forum like this one or something -

AntiCitizenOne - there's a trial set available for £22.

Not much of a risk at modern smoking prices. If it works for you, you don't need to buy another whole kit - just spare batteries and cartridges.

Anon - as Vapers Network says, it's not as strong a hit as smoking. The 'juice' I use is stronger than the tobacco I prefer, in nicotine equivalents. What I get is about the same nicotine level from both.

Watch out for a brand new well-loaded cartridge though - the first puff can be a bit of a belter!
