The Safe Cig Review: it is what it says it is

the safe cig reviews and coupon codesThe Safe Cig has an indisputable pedigree as probably the longest produced electronic cigarette in the world. The name’s no accident, because the Safe Cig is what it is and that’s, well … safe. No fire, no smoke, no ash, no odor, means no harmful health risks to you or those around you. It’s safe by name and safe by nature.

I was looking forward to reviewing The Safe Cig as i had heard good things about it. I ordered the starter kit that they refer to as their entry level kit, some menthol cartomizers as well as their latest product The Safe Cig Micro, which i think i will cover in a separate review.

 

Origins Of The Safe Cig

The Safe Cig takes pride in its origins as a family run and owned business that first introduced the United States to the concept of smokeless cigarettes more than four years ago. In that time, the company has funded its own research and development to make the product better, safer and more reliable, since, in the owners’ words, they are “devoted to creating a world class product … to give you the most consistent and enjoyable vaping experience”.

Whether they have pulled this off, of course, only you can tell. However, all the signs are there to endorse the conclusion that The Safe Cig is indeed one of the better electronic cigarettes currently on the market.

 


 

 

 

PackagingThe Safe Cig Review

My package arrived within 3 days of ordering. The Safe Cig starter kit comes in a tidy little box along with my refills, Classic Tobacco (ordered with my kit) and Menthol which i ordered separately. On opening the box everything is laid out well with a foam insert that conceal the charger underneath.

The nice touch i found with this was the inclusion of a ‘Start Here’ pamphlet (in addition to the user manual) which quickly walks you through the setting up process and functions of your electronic cigarette.

Overall – From the off, The Safe Cig and its packaging looks professional and has a quality feel.

 

Battery/Responsiveness

The Safe Cig ReviewAny electronic cigarette is only as good as its battery, of course, and the Safe Cig has been developed with this fully in mind.

Even in this miniaturized world, the makers has managed to equip the battery with what it likes to call “a brain” – a microchip that continuously monitors the performance of the device to ensure optimum operation.

Thanks to this sort of technology The Safe Cig has one of the most sensitive flow sensors of all electronic cigarettes, helping to ensure that it powers up in response to the slightest of drags by the user, yet also powers down the moment it’s no longer in use.

In this sleeping mode, the battery manages to retain almost 99.9% of its charge, but is ready to spring into action again as soon as you suck on it. It’s therefore no wonder, perhaps, that the makers claim that this battery lasts 50% longer than any of the competition.

This is one of the most responsive batteries i have tried yet, even better than the Green Smoke batteries i tried. When it comes to looks as well The Safe Cig doesn’t disappoint, the faux rings on the battery case and the flecks on the cartomizer really help in making the transition from tobacco smoking to vaping a seamless one.

Overall – The Safe Cig Battery is Excellent!

 

The Safe Cig – Vapor/Flavor

The Safe Cig FlavorSo we have ticked off the battery responsiveness, all good there. Next is the flavor and the vapor volume, both an important part of the smokeless cigarette experience.

The Safe Cig starter kit i ordered came with the Classic Tobacco flavor in the low 11mg strength. I also ordered an extra pack of Menthol cartridges as i do enjoy a minty vape every now and then!

The Classic Tobacco is as it says on their website “Domestic and imported leaves make this flavor the most popular in the world”. I can see why it would be the most popular as well, i really enjoyed the flavor, it gave a nice throat hit as well as producing a nice amount of vapor.

the safe cig cartomizersThe Menthol is very good as well, i didn’t get the throat hit with this flavor as it was super smooth but the vapor was still good. I also tried the 18mg Classic Tobacco but this came with The Safe Cig Micro that i ordered and i really liked this.

When i order more cartomizers i will be getting the 18mg instead of the 11mg, these were my favorite overall. Again, this is all personal preference, i used to smoke Marlboro Lights (gold).

The only question mark likely to remain in a consumers’ minds, as it was in mine, is the continued inhalation of addictive nicotine. The Safe Cig helps to address these concerns by offering what is probably the broadest range of nicotine concentrations in the “vaping”” fluid. Thus you can choose from six different levels of nicotine: 24mg, 18mg, 14mg, 11mg, 6mg or zero mg for a nicotine-free smoking experience.

Overall – Very happy with the flavors and amount of vapor the cartomizers produced.

 

The Safe Cig Starter Kit Options

The Safe Cig Starter kitAs with so many things about the Safe Cig, it’s all a question of keeping things simple, but consistently high-quality at affordable prices. So, there are just the three basic starter kits, which provide the essentials for a new or continuing experience:

Starter Kit: $69.95This is the kit my review was based on. Simply comprises the cigarette body, containing the rechargeable battery; a standard wall charger; a USB charger; and a pack of 5 cartridges (with your choice of flavor and nicotine strength);

Starter Kit Pro: $89.95 – Identical to the Starter Kit, with the exception of an additional body/battery (so that you can keep one on charge, while the other is in use); and

Starter Kit Deluxe: $137.95 – Contains an impressive three batteries; two USB chargers; a wall charger; car adapter/charger; your choice of a number of smart carrying case options; and two five-packs of cartridges.

When buying these or any other of your supplies, however, it is certainly worth while keeping an eye on that section of The Safe Cig website that lists the promotions currently on offer. These can win you significant price discounts. Indeed, by clicking on the red “reveal” tab above and enter the Safe Cig coupon code you will qualify for an immediate 5% reduction on any purchase.

 

The Safe Cig – Overall assessment

It’s difficult not to like this product, before i wrote this review i had very high expectations. The great thing is that these expectations were met and in some instances exceeded. I suppose there’s a pedigree that comes with four successful years in the business, of course, and this appears to have been put to very good use not just in marketing a final product but in continuing to refine and improve it.

Our review shows it as one of the better products in this lively and expanding market, if not the best that we have tested so far. It’s refreshing to see an e-cig company that enhances the overall reputation of electronic cigarettes in general. This can only be a positive for the whole industry.

    Bottom Line

    I bought one of their starter kits and have been using it for about 2 weeks, so far i’m really happy with it. I wasn’t a heavy smoker (5 a day and 20 on a night out) but i have completely cut out smoking regular cigatrettes in the say. I still smoke when i have had a drink on a night out but i can see it being just a matter of time before i cut that right back as well.

    If you are considering trying an e-cig then you wont go far wrong with The Safe Cig.

    Pros
    Tobacco flavors are the best and most consistent. Going to try others soon
    Con
    Battery life is OK, could be better
    Bottom Line

    After trying a few others including some really bad disposables, I found the Safecig to be the best so far. The units are rugged, (no plastic) and deliver good vapor. I like that they make a 24mg cartridge for the original Safecigs. Really good vapor and satisfying nicotine hit.

    The flavorings are pretty consistent. The classic is my favorite. it would be nice if the batteries lasted longer, but if I have a couple of extras to make sure I never run out.

    The shipping time is is fast and free. Also they offer a lifetime guarantee. For my original Safecig I sent a battery back for return and they sent me a new one within the week. Good customer service and they stand by their product.

    If you’re looking for reliability, good flavors and responsive customer service, I’d check Safecig out. It sure took a while to find a reliable ecig product!!

    I really get the full experience of smoking a "real" cigarette, only w/out the coughing!
    Con
    Never received a shippment of refills and they refused to refund or replace. Horrible cust serv.
    Bottom Line

    The day I started smoking the Safe Cig I literally stopped smoking regular cigarettes. I was a two and half a pack a day smoker and had been smoking for 30+ years. I had tried everything to quit and was convinced that the Safe Cig was not going to work either. I bought the kit in January of 2011 because I saw an ad on the internet that said that I could return the product if it didn’t work. Today is March 27, 2012 and I have not smoked another cigarette again, the money I saved alone has been amazing. I recommend it to everyone I see. It saved my life.
