OK Cigs Full Rechargeable Starter Kit – OK Cigs price is £27.24  

Packaging/Contents – Score = 4/5

I received with my Starter Kit the following contents:

  • 1 x Rechargeable Battery
  • 1 x USB Wall Charger Charger
  • 1 x Car Charger
  • 5 x Pre-filled Cartomisers

Sticking with the traditional cigarette look and feel to OK Cigs they package their starter Kits in a cardboard case similar in size and design to that of a traditional 10 deck. This is a down side for me as it can become damaged easily and there is nowhere to keep your refills – they could really do with bring out a proper carry case.

Flavour/Strength/Vapour – Score = 4/5

OKCigs have a fairly small selection when it comes to flavours and strengths which I suppose keeps things nice and easy for the beginners out there. They have 5 different rechargeable kits on offer covering different nicotine strengths, these are: Bold – 4.5% nicotine strength, Gold – 3% nicotine strength, Light – 1.5% nicotine strength. Then they also have menthol available in Bold and Light strengths. For me personally the Bold and Gold are a bit too strong so I went for the 1.5% Light option. When deciding which strength to go for they compare with traditional brands to give you an idea of what will work for you which is a useful feature.

The Light Tobacco I found was a decent flavour and the Menthol I found to be a decent attempt as it gave you that fresh minty cool flavour while the 1.5% nicotine also gave a decent throat hit. The Vapour volume was okay once it got going but I tended to find it was by the 3rd or even 4th drag it really started to perform. 

The cartomisers themselves are a touch bigger than the average which does in this case equal slightly longer life than some of their competitors. The battery is small though so the overall e cig size isn’t affected too much. When it comes to buying refills they are sold in packs of three for £9.98 which is a little more than many competing brands that normally come with five cartomisers in a pack.

Battery Performance – Score = 4/5

As stated above this Ecig kit only comes with one battery which is probably reflected in the price to be fair. They have gone down the “cigalike” design which basically means the closest possible design to a traditional cigarette in terms of look, size and weight. They have done quite well with this as it is one of the smaller ones on the market so points scored there, however being smaller does mean the battery life does suffer and does not last very long. Going back to the look and feel of it – they really have gone all out and paid real attention to detail with rings down the battery and “filter” flecks on the cartomiser. 

Going back to the size of the battery meaning that the battery life itself isn’t great but this is something that is pretty much standard with batteries of this size. I was finding myself re-charging  after around an hour of actual use. If you are a heavy smoker this will get annoying pretty quickly! One thing I will say if you decide to go for this kit, or any mini e cig kit for that matter, is to make sure you have a second battery as backup so you can rotate, this is essential. If not you will regularly find yourself without an e cig for 3 hours at a time while you wait for a full re-charge. At the time of writing OKCigs don’t actually sell their batteries separately so you will have to buy two kits if you want that second battery.

Customer Service/Returns & Warranty – Score = 4/5

As well as being very active on Facebook and Twitter you can also email or phone OK cigs to get in touch.

OK Cigs will accept returns for any faulty products as long as they receive them back within 14 days of receipt. They don’t say they will refund though only exchange. They also don’t state that they will accept returns for unused and unopened product which should really be an option. Full details can be found on the website.

So are they OK? – Overall Score = 4/5

Overall I was impressed with the OK Cigs Starter Kit without being blown away. They have gone for the traditional look, feel and size, which is great. The price is okay as well so if you are looking for a fairly cheap option to get you started look no further
