SMOKO Premium Electronic Cigarettes is based out of London and provides e-cigarette users with yet another option in a sea of electronic cigarette companies. The electronic cigarette company also goes by iSmoko, which happens to correspond to the company’s URL address. SMOKO Premium Electronic Cigarettes offers e-cigs in a 2-piece design consisting of a cartomizer and battery. A total of 10 different cartomizer flavours are currently marketed by SMOKO that covers everything from traditional flavours such as Menthol to their more adventurous “Roast Chicken”.
Three starter kits are currently offered by SMOKO, which include the Standard, White Premium and Black Premium Starter Packs. Users should note that aside from a colour difference, both Premium Starter Packs are identical in price and features. The SMOKO Black Premium Starter Pack is likely to have the most appeal out of the three and is offered at a suggested manufacturer price of £55. For this price, users will receive (1) personal charging case, (2) rechargeable batteries, (5) original tobacco flavoured cartomizers, (1) PCC USB charge cable, (1) e-cig battery USB charge cable, and (1) mains adapter. This review will focus on the SMOKO Premium Starter Kit and how it compares to current offerings from other electronic cigarette companies.

Smoko Review – Aesthetics
The SMOKO Black Premium Starter Kit arrives in a rather plain cardboard box with the company’s slogan “SMOKO YOUR WAY” printed towards the bottom. Lifting up the top reveals the contents of the SMOKO starter kit, which include a PCC. Unlike personal charge cases offered by competing electronic cigarette companies, the SMOKO PCC keeps it simple without a battery level indicator display. A premium metal border finish can be found on the PCC, which along with the company’s logo adds a premium touch to the case.
“SMOKO PCC keeps it simple without a battery level indicator display”
Electronic cigarette devices in both the White and Black Premium Starter Kits are identical with SMOKO pursuing the traditional appearance of a tobacco cigarette. This is surprising considering the overwhelming majority of newer electronic cigarette companies have left behind this aesthetic approach for a modern one. Nevertheless, the SMOKO electronic cigarette has a rather nice appearance to it. Weight and width are comfortable and the electronic cigarette does not necessarily feel cheap by any means. Overall, SMOKO didn’t do a bad job in the appearance department for a company that was launched a little over a year ago.
Smoko Review – Flavour & Vaping
The majority of flavours are offered in four different nicotine strengths, which are as follows: 24mg, 16mg, 11mg and 0mg. After assembling the 2-piece SMOKO electronic cigarette, taking a drag will produce a more than sufficient amount of vapour for the small form factor design. The original tobacco flavour is a favourite of former tobacco cigarette smokers, which is probably why SMOKO doesn’t give buyers the option of selecting their own flavour.
