Totally Wicked Review 2014
8.6our score

With its UK office based out of Blackburn, Totally Wicked is well known in the industry as one of the first companies to emerge after the invention of electronic cigarettes. The company’s electronic cigarettes and e-liquids can often be found favorably reviewed by its users. Totally Wicked markets a wide range of electronic cigarettes, e-cigars, starter kits, tanks, and other accessories. They currently offer a total of 23 rechargeable electronic cigarette starter kits ranging in market price from £19.99 all the way up to £139.99 for the Vape-Pro Deluxe Kit.

The Tornado eGo-C Slim Full Kit offered by Totally Wicked is probably the most attractive in terms of features and price. The kit includes: (1) atomiser cone, (2) atomiser heads, (3) tank cartridges, (1) USB charge lead, (1) battery housing, (2) 360 mAh lithium batteries, (1) 10ml bottle of 18mg e-liquid. Buyers are given the option between an e-liquid flavour of either tobacco or menthol. Along with the explosive growth in popularity of electronic cigarettes was the emergence of an equally explosive number of e-cig companies. This review will focus on how the Totally Wicked Tornado eGo-C Slim Full Kit compares to competitive kits offered by Green Smoke and Jac Vapour.

Totally Wicked Review – Aesthetics

The Tornado eGo-C Slim Full Kit arrived in a presentable matte white cardboard box with a clear description and brand logo adorning the top face. Opening the box reveals an informative user guide as well as the battery housing and atomiser cone in a neat tray. Below the compartment are 3x tank cartridges, 2x atomiser heads, USB charge lead, 2 rechargeable batteries and the e-liquid.

“the black colour, which I found very to be visually pleasing”

I must start off by saying that the USB charger offered by Totally Wicked is unique in that it allows for the simultaneous charging of two batteries. Appearance-wise the eGo-C Slim batteries are very much akin to that of traditional AAA batteries. The assembled Tornado eGo-C Slim e-cigarette itself is 130mm long with a diameter of 10mm. Users are given their choice of electronic cigarette device colours: Black, Brushed Steel, Pearlised Pink or Red Wine. I opted for the black colour, which I found very to be visually pleasing and the product overall to be of premium quality. The gold trim found throughout the device was a great touch as was the light around the power button. All in all, it’s hard to beat the Totally Wicked eGo-C Slim’s fine aesthetics.

Totally Wicked Review – Flavour & Vaping

Despite offering a vast range of e-liquid flavours, Totally Wicked restricts buyers of their eGo-C Slim Full Kit to either tobacco or menthol. Users should note that both e-liquid flavour option are only included with a nicotine strength of 18mg. Vaping with the eGo-C Slim isn’t quite as easy as their 2-piece cousins offered by Green Smoke and JacVapour, requiring a total of 6 components to be put together. This may sound like a task and was a bit time consuming at first but the process isn’t difficult by any means. After the device is assembled, turning on the device requires pressing the power button five consecutive times.

Between the two flavour options, I chose the tobacco e-liquid and found it to be rather enjoyable. However, the growth of the e-cig market has brought on much better e-liquid flavours from competing companies. Vapour production was more-than-adequate for an unmodified electronic cigarette of its size. Overall, vaping the eGo-C Slim with tobacco was solid but nothing that stands out from the growing number of electronic cigarette company offerings.

Totally Wicked Review – Technical Features & Battery

totally-wicked-e-cig totally-wicked-twist-kit Lacking a personal charge case, the eGo-C Slim Full Kit includes two 360mAh rechargeable lithium ion batteries. Charging of the two batteries is accomplished by placing them both into the supplied USB charging lead and into a USB power source. Complete charging took me slightly over two hours, which is certainly understandable and probably the reason why they include two batteries in this kit.
totally-wicked-full-kit “probably the reason why they include two batteries in this kit” The various parts that comprise the Totally Wicked eGo-C Slim e-cigarette make putting the entire thing together a somewhat tedious process. Who knows, you might find it enjoyable to line up with a few friends and create an assembly line to assemble your e-cigs. As with most e-liquid devices, users tend to save a bit more over the years if they properly maintain their e-cigs.

    I always found putting together totally wickeds ecigs fun but have recently found it very inconvenient to do this while on the road.

    Tried quite a few e-cigs now and have found these to be by far the best. After trialing a few of totally wicked’s products I go for the V3 atomiser with the EGO-C battery. Always buy the metal version’s as they are bullet proof and resist sign’s of wear and tear. May be slighly more expensive but i swear by them. Not smoked a real cig for 6 months and have no plans of going back.
