Smoke Relief has become a global producer of electronic cigarettes over the past few years recently expanding into the UK market. With the rising popularity of e-cigarettes, many companies worldwide have been attempting to establish themselves by providing quality products at competitive pricing. Smoke Relief is one such company that has managed to gain our attention with their Deluxe Rechargeable eCigarette Kit. The Smoke Relief Deluxe kit has a suggested market price of £143.96 but can often be found for much less. The kit includes 2 batteries, usb cable, mains charger, 5 tobacco cartomisers and 5 cartomisers of your choice. All of this makes the Deluxe kit comparable to more establish e-cigarette companies such as Green Smoke (Express Kit), Sky Cig (Freedom Starter), etc. Users should note that unlike Green Smoke and Sky Cig, Smoke Relief gives buyers more options in terms of cartomiser flavours, however this does come at the cost of a slightly higher market price.
Reasons to Buy
- Ability to select flavours
- 10 total cartomisers
- Lifetime warranty
- 90-day guarantee
Reasons to Reconsider
- Subtle flavours
- Steep price
- High nicotine content
Smoke Relief Reviews – Aesthetics
Smoke Relief’s Deluxe Rechargeable eCigarette Starter Kit arrived in a black with various smaller black boxes packaged internally somewhat reminiscent of nesting Russian dolls. I found that Smoke Relief’s cheaper packaging is in sharp contrast to those of its competitors, who seem to invest a great deal in such things. The rather inconspicuous portable charging box has a LED on its anterior face indicating the charge state. Four cartomisers can fit alongside two batteries in the charging case, which is fairly generous. The batteries seem to be of great quality and feature a traditional cigarette white colour. The assembled Rock Relief cartomiser-battery electronic cigarette is also noticeably longer than a traditional cigarette, which may turn off some. The electrical cables/ components (usb, mains, usb cable) are disappointing in that they are generic in appearance.
“rather inconspicuous portable charging box has a LED on its anterior face”
E-Lites’ G9 batteries feature a series of thin concentric rings evenly spaced from the LED tip to the E-Lites branding preceding battery-cartomiser junction. Although some may disagree, I thought this gave the E-Lites electronic cigarette a nice premium appearance. Once again, build quality appears well done. The assembled electronic cigarette has a length of 101 mm, which is longer than that of Sky Cigs’ (96 mm) and ROK (86mm). This shouldn’t be viewed as a bad thing necessarily since a longer device means longer battery life.
Who knows, the pleasant appearance of the increased length of E-Lites might be the beginning of an e-cigarettes trend towards that of the 1960s 100mm traditional cigarettes. The regular nicotine strength cartomisers in the E-Pro4 pack are the prototypical matte mustard orange color with a subtle red ring indicative of its strength. Although not included in this pack, light strength and menthol flavor have a gold and green ring encircling its respective cartomisers. A modern silver ring exposes where the cartomiser meets the battery.
Smoke Relief Reviews – Flavour & Vaping
As with other two-piece electronic cigarette systems, the cartomiser screws into the battery with a subtle drag initiating the vaping process. I opted for Smoke Relief’s regular strength 18mg nicotine cartomisers.
