There are a lot of features that jump out at you right from the moment you enter onto the Intellicig website. For a start, if you’re not happy with what you get, there’s the 30 day money back guarantee that you can use to get your cash back. If you process your order before 2pm, it’ll be shipped on the same day too. When you add to that great support from their chat and telephone staff, you have a service that you can rely on and in the e-cigarette world, that’s something not to be sniffed at.
I’ve refused to use brands because of their bad customer service. For example, I once used an American brand called White Cloud Electronic Cigarettes and the order didn’t arrive. When I called through to their customer services team, they were so rude to me that even though I got a replacement sent out (after what felt like a lifetime or arguing) and actually enjoyed smoking it, I never used the brand again. Bad customer service says a lot more than a dodgy product.
One of the most interesting features of Intellicig is that they offer e-liquid that is created in the UK, with only the very purest and cleanest of ingredients. This just makes sense – in a world where we are all bored of reading scare stories about electronic cigarettes in the media, having a liquid to inhale that is safe and accountable as far as ingredients are concerned is just a plain and simple good idea.
Intellicig Starter Kit
I decided to go with their so-called starter kit which to be fair, wasn’t that impressive. For just £18.99 you will get your hands on one battery, one USB charger, one ‘capsule’ on it’s own plus five additional capsules.
They used capsules in place of cartridge – they are the same thing, I promise!
At the moment, you can also make use of ten FREE additional cartridges. Essentially you have enough in this kit to keep you vaping for around 10-15 days. On average, you *should* use roughly one cartridge per day.
I only got one battery in the starter kit so I decided to add two more additional batteries onto my order. They were £8.99 each, but you can buy a pack of five for just £7.99 per battery.
In length, the Intellicig battery plus a refill capsule is the equivalent to a super king sized cigarette. A full charge will last about four to five hours of ‘regular’ usage. The more you use it, the quicker the battery will die… obviously.
When you charge it up, it takes about two and a half to three hours to fully charge from start to finish, and it also has a smart safety feature where it automatically shuts off after ten seconds of usage. That’s there for your safety. It’s always good to know these brands care about your safety too!
One thing I will say is that the battery only lasted for about two and a half months before it started failing to hold its charge and I needed to replace it. The second one I purchased lasted a few weeks longer than this. I’d say that you probably will need to replace after about three months and I have found other brands that have faired better.
Another negative I fell I need to mention is that at times, I felt like I needed to draw really hard on the e-cig before anything started happening, but this wasn’t every time and it wasn’t really a big deal for me. Just thought I’d mention it.
I normally call these cartridges but I actually quite liked the word ‘capsule’. You can buy empty capsules to refill with your own liquid at £3.99 for a pack of ten which is actually really good value for money. If you can’t be bothered with all that refilling business, you can buy a pack of ten pre-filled capsules for £6.99.
Each cartridge should last for around one day each, but on pretty heavy days, you’ll be looking at one and a half to two cartridges per day. The more you buy, the cheaper it will be. When you buy a pack of ten, for example, you’re paying £0.69 per capsule. When you buy 250 capsules, it’s just over £0.50 per capsule. Of course, when you refill your own the savings are limitless. You buy a 10ml bottle of e-liquid for just a couple of quid these days, and that can last you about a week if you use it sensibly.
There are only three flavours available:
There are only two strengths available too – 10mg and 15mg. However, the e-liquid that Intellicig has to offer gives you a few more options and to be more specific, in 0%, 1.5%, 3% and 4.5%. In fact, that’s some of the highest strength e-liquid I’ve ever found!
One thing that you can be happy with is that they don’t use PG or Propylene Glycol in their e-liquids so if you are allergic, this is the perfect e-cig brand for you!
Intellicig e-liquid is more expensive than other bands but that’s the price you pay for an e-liquid that is made in the UK (rather than China), is made of only the very best ingredients, and has some of the richest-tasting flavours. And I’ll be honest – I did quite like the regular tobacco type. I felt that it closely mimicked the taste of an actual cigarette so for those that are looking for an almost-exact replica, this isn’t a bad one to go for.
Why You Should Buy Intellicig E-Cigarettes…
Firstly, they have the coolest Share-a-Starter kit for just £29.99 so that you can share your quit smoking experience with a friend, work colleague or loved one. You can also buy a mobile charger for just under a fiver to give your batteries a re-juice on the go. I’ve never seen a mobile charging case this cheap and although I didn’t buy one for myself, friends have reported fairly decent things about it, and I will be ordering one on my next purchase.
I’ve already mentioned a few added bonuses you can make use of with Intellicig, but I will mention them again… You’ve for the 30 day money back guarantee so if you don’t like it, you can always return it for a full refund, minus postage and packaging of course. You’ll also get same-day dispatch if you place your order before 2pm too. Add really great telephone and online support and you know you’re on to a winner.
There are a couple of drawbacks which stopped them from getting the top spot, such as the battery life not being as long as it could be, and it could do with being a bit more firmly made… At times I thought it felt a little on the cheap side. Not as bad as some that I have come across, of course, but not as good as the likes of JacVapour or Smoko however.
Also, the initial starter kit isn’t big enough – add another battery and you’d be on to a winner.
For the reasons mentioned above, I would rate Intellicig and their starter kit at 3.5 stars out of 5.
Not bad at all, could do with a few improvements though.
