Packaging Presentation 4/5
ProSmoke’s Starter Kit comes in a quality magnet flap box that has become the standard among many electronic cigarette brands. The graphics are simplistic yet highly appealing and with a name like ProSmoke, they’re likely to have some success with any product they release. The assembled e-cig unit looks good and has a sleek feel with a blue LED to match. Their unit, which is a three piece (battery, atomizer, cartridge) unfortunately ships with just one atomizer. While flavor residue can build up on any atomizer quickly, the kit comes with one flavor so that shouldn’t be a problem right away. As with most three piece designs, their atomizers are high quality and built to last, too.
The best thing about the ProSmoke battery is its size and shape. As an ex-smoker, I’ve always been drawn to mini-ecigs and ProSmoke is right there with the smallest & lightest of them. Its responsiveness is there and the cartridges (specifically the liquid mixture) add a lot to the response in terms of vapor production. The battery life was on par with what you’ll get from a lot of mini size models- fairly low. When it had a charge it provided constant vapor and power to the atomizer but I certainly had to change the battery out more than I had expected. So if you’re going to be on the go with ProSmoke, make sure to have a mobile charging source like their charging pack or car charger.
The high rating here for ProSmoke is more vapor than flavor. ProSmoke uses all vegetable glycerin or VG in their cartridges, which as a rule is going to give you big, thick clouds of vapor on the exhale. And ProSmoke’s cartridges give an insane amount of vapor, especially considering it’s a mini size product. Though much less is scientifically known about VG than PG (propylene glycol) in vaping, many liquid producers and otherwise have started to add it to their products because of its big vapor effect. 100% VG liquid also has virtually no throat hit, as do ProSmoke’s cartridges, which wasn’t a problem for me because I prefer a smoother throat hit. It’s also worth mentioning that if you’re one of the few with PG-related allergies, then ProSmoke is likely one of your best buys, as 100% VG products are uncommon. ProSmoke’s flavors are okay considering the use of VG, which is naturally less flavorful/ sweet than PG. Nothing spectacular but definitely enjoyable, the vanilla and coffee were likely the best.
Overall 4/5 (Not An Overall Average)
ProSmoke’s starter kit is overall a good mini e-cig with pros and cons that are essentially design choices. Their choice to use all VG liquid does provide for incredible vapor production but little to no throat hit and weaker flavors compared to PG. With their three piece design, you get the benefits of higher quality atomizers and cheaper cartridges. The downsides are of course flavor crossover on atomizers and a small possibility of leaks. The size, weight, feel and vapor of ProSmoke make it a great transition product. Overall, it’s a decent value for a mini e-cig, though others may perform better in some categories with the exception of vapor production. You simply won’t find another mini-size product with as big and thick vapor as ProSmoke.
