South Beach Smoke Deluxe Starter Kit Review
Featuring a magnet flip box, the South Beach Smoke Deluxe Starter Kit has a black gloss finish. The top displays the South Beach Smoke logo, a colorful swirled graphic, the lettering “Deluxe Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit,” and to the left a seal marked “New and Improved”.
Opening the lid you’ll see a membership card, which is an interesting idea. This ‘membership card’ is about the size of a credit card. Featuring the South Beach Smoke logo, as well URL to the South Beach Smoke website. The backside of the card acts as an explanation of electronic cigarettes and has a polite message requesting permission to keep using your electronic cigarette. Pretty nifty idea, but always remember to respect the wishes of establishment owners and those around you. Using an electronic cigarette essentially makes you a representative of our community.
The box also has a manual, which explains benefits, warnings, the battery, the charger and the cartridge, as well as a few other helpful tips. Surrounded by molded foam, the standard “SuperMAX” battery and extra-capacity “SuperMAX” battery sit perfectly snug. Pulling up the foam will reveal the Deluxe USB charger and portable wall charger.
Both the standard and extra-capacity perform well for their small size and have a traditional cigarette look, minus the end piece that resembles a crystal. When the battery is activated and in use, the crystal piece shines a sparkling orange color, which is the same color used in the theme throughout their branding.
Since the device is activated by pulling from the cartridge, the responsiveness of these units can sometimes have a bit of a lag from the time you pull from the mouth piece. However, with the South Beach Smoke e-cigarette, there is little to no delay. This is a huge improvement over similar batteries. Great work guys.
Vapor / Flavor: 5/5
The flavors are surprisingly outstanding, which came as a bit of a shock to me. Though it was tough laying down the Peach flavor, I did manage to try all assorted flavors that came with my particular package. The fruits were spot on, and tasted exactly as they should. Since I’m not much of a tobacco fan, I didn’t find much enjoyment from the tobacco blue and tobacco gold flavors. I was a bit taken back that there was no menthol flavor that was offered with the assortment.
Vapor production is good, though I could use a little more. Still, I can’t ding it for a personal preference.
Overall (Not An Average): 5/5
The South Beach Smoke Deluxe Starter Kit is an outstanding package. It comes with everything you’ll need to get started and then some. The membership card really gave me a great impression of this company. The flavors were delicious and the vapor production was impressive. This is the real deal.
