Electroniccigarettesinc, the company behind Duo Pro, have a great track record when it comes to manufacturing electronic cigarettes and this shows with the presentation box and packaging in general. All packaging is nicely branded and looks professional, full marks on this.
We also received a nice slim carry case that holds two batteries and two cartomizers and slips nicely into your pocket, at $9.95 these are a great way to carry your electronic cigarettes around.
The battery on the Duo Pro has a nice smooth feel to it and measures about 8cm.
It is one of the biggest batteries we have reviewed to date although with the cartomizer attached the whole e cigarette is about the same size as the long Green Smoke electronic cigarette, so it’s by no means humongous!
The good news is that the battery is very responsive, no primer drags needed, happy days! There are 4 colors available (black, white, blue and red) as well as both manual and automatic. Although I didn’t get the manual battery I have found from other brands that they are a great option to have. I would recommend getting one of each with your Duo Pro kit to test for yourself.
Overall – A very good responsive battery that doesn’t need primer drags, has a good smooth feel finish to it with clean, subtle branding.
Duo Pro offer a wide variety of flavors, the usual suspects are there such as menthol, cherry, coffee and chocolate but there are also some others that I personally have never tried before like waffle, grape, watermelon and Cuban cigar.
There is only one tobacco flavour which is maybe a little unusual but luckily the flavour is amongst the best I have tried. I had the 16mg strength and the vapour that it produced was excellent. There are other strengths to suit each individual though with non (0mg), low (6mg), medium (11mg), high (16mg) and extra high (24mg) so plenty of options.
The other flavors for me were a bit hit and miss. I enjoyed the waffle which was definitely a surprise and the strawberry which was really good as well, menthol was just ok compared to other menthol flavors I have tried. The coffee, chocolate and Cuban cigar flavors were the others I tried but I didn’t like the flavors of these too much and I also found the vapour that these cartomizers produced was poor when compared to the tobacco cart. As I always say though, flavors are a personal preference but these particular ones are delivered a lot better from other e cigarette brands.
One other thing that would be good to see with the cartomizers is to have them labelled with the flavour names. This isn’t a huge thing but it would make it easier if you do buy multiple flavors. Not all brands do this yet but the way V2 Cigs label their cartomizers and color code them is a great help.
Overall – There are plenty of flavour options, some very good and some disappointing. The good thing for me is that the tobacco flavour is very good.
Value For Money
Duo Pro starter kits start from $54.95 but this will only get you one battery, to add an extra battery will cost an extra $25. These prices are pretty much standard as starter kits go. The cartomizers cost $14.95 for a pack of 5 or if you are a heavy smoker you can save by buying in bulk, a 50 pack is available for $124.95. Each cartomizer is claimed by Duo Pro to be the equivalent to approximately 20-30 cigarettes.

Duo Pro Review – Overall
This is a really solid offering from a company that has a lot of experience in the smokeless cigarette market. The product itself had both good and not so good points but they hit the good points in the areas that mattered most, the battery, the tobacco flavour and vapour volume, these were all very good.
If you are looking for an electronic cigarette with a good battery and good tobacco flavour then you won’t go wrong with this.
