LUCI Cigarette Reviews
The Luci comes in a sleek, black case with a magnetic locking mechanism. The graphics are well done, and the 11-page instruction manual includes a quick start segment. The velveteen compartments inside the case are well-designed, and the entire package is compact and toteable. The Luci cigarettes themselves are black as well, with gold branding, with a blue LED flame at the tips. The length and circumference is relative to that of a normal cigarette. Cool-looking product, altogether.
After a two hour charge, the automatic Luci battery still seemed to require 2 or 3 priming draws in order to get fired up. Even then, it’s still difficult to get a good drag at times. In what appears to be a design flaw, the atomizer tends to fall down into the battery, which makes switching out cartridges a bit of a task. The Luci kit includes a standard wall charger (no USB), as well as a car charger.
Even after a few priming puffs on the Luci, the product isn’t much different than air, when inhaled casually. Upon taking a bigger hit, the vapor turns almost liquid, which leaves an aftertaste that resembles dusty caramel. It reminds me of a sort of Turkish Gold Ultra-Ultra light. The Luci’s vapor didn’t feel like that of a real cigarette’s, i.e. it’s difficult to get a good hit with it. Though, the slow-responding battery produces little vapor, which can be a plus in certain situations.
Overall (Not An Average) 3.5/5
The Luci electronic cigarette is big on design, but is lacking in flavor and funtion. The battery is hesistant, there appears to be a design flaw with the atomizer and the cartridges are cheaply made, and feel flimsy. Regardless, the actual cigarette itself is thinner than other e-cigs, more like a normal cigarette, and the blue flame at the tip is modern-looking. Still, the Luci just doesn’t smoke very well.
