As one of the largest distributers of electronic cigarettes in the United Kingdom and Europe, Sky Cig has expanded substantially in recent years. SkyCig (SC) aims to provide smokers with the “freedom to smoke” by offering an array of electronic cigarette kits and products. They currently push a single e-cigarette kit, the appropriately-named “SKYCIG freedom” that provides improvements to their original e-cigarette line such as longer lasting charges, smaller charging pack dimensions, and an overall improved vaping experience. In this SkyCig review, we’ll delve deeper into what’s included and how the Sky Cig Freedom starter kit stacks up against a growing number of e-cigarette competitors.
Reasons to Buy
- Responsive vaping
- 5 different flavours
- USB charger
- Long cartomiser life
Reasons to Reconsider
- Less-than-ideal warranty
- Mediocre battery life
SkyCig Review – Aesthetics
The Sky Cig Freedom starter kit will arrive packed in a clean black box with a convenient magnetic latch mechanism. The first thing you’ll notice is the user manual, which is very organized and easy-to-read allowing even first-time electronic cigarette smokers to assemble their vapour sticks with ease. Also included is a 15% promo code for future purposes that you should hold onto to refill your cartomiser stock. The USB and wall adapter look rather generic so only time will tell how they will hold up in the long run.
“Charging case is plain but an elegant black that seems to be relatively durable.”
The hard plastic Freedom charging case is plain but an elegant black that seems to be relatively durable. The charging case can charge a single battery while holding 5 cartomisers and one assembled e-cigarette. The 2-piece Sky Cig electronic cigarette system assembly involves screwing the battery onto the cartomiser (containing the vapouriser). An appealing gold ring is present at the junction of the two parts and appears much like a normal cigarette with the exception of the blue ends. The fully assembled e-cig measures 96 mm long with the Sky Cig logo printed onto the battery end.
SkyCig Review – Flavour & Vaping
The classic tobacco’s flavour was most akin to a standard cigarette but like with all e-cigs, it tends to lack the drag and aftertaste produced from the latter. I found the menthol and surprisingly, the cherry flavours, to be my personal favourites. Menthol-flavoured cigarettes have always been a personal preference while in the case of the medium-strength cherry flavour, it comes as quite a pleasant surprise that cherry would taste good vaped in a cigarette.
SkyCig Review – Technical Features & Battery
A 12 month limited warranty applies to SC’s USB charge cable, USB stick charger, wall adapters and rechargeable cases. At the discretion of Sky Cig, these items can be replaced or repaired a maximum of one time. Batteries are warrantied for 30 days while cartridges (cartomisers) carry no warranty since they are consumable items.
