Ozone Smoke Review
With so many competing e-cigarette manufacturers, you have to consider all of the options to find a truly great product. Ozone Smoke is a relatively lesser known company, but their selection of flavors and reasonably-priced starter kits make them a serious consideration for those thinking of switching to vaping. The Premium Starter Kit comes with a long and short battery attachment, six flavor cartridges, USB charger, wall adapter and one year’s warranty – but does it stand up to the competition?
- Wide selection of flavors
- Great battery life
- One year warranty
- Smooth vaping experience
- Four nicotine levels
- Authentic flavors
- Longer lasting cartridges
- Lacks a strong throat hit
- Could use more vapor
Packaging and Design
The two-tier starter kit has elegant design, with silver and emerald lettering over a sleek black background. There’s a magnetic clasp to keep it closed, and the box is sturdy enough to protect your e-cigs. The upper level is padded, with spots for the long and short batteries as well as a cartridge. The bottom of the box contains the charger and wall adapter, with spots for five more cartridges. You get an instruction manual, but realistically it won’t be needed.
The e-cigarette itself is the standard pen-size, with a green LED for the tip and two-piece construction. They use cartomizer-style cartridges, so you get the flavored nicotine solution along with a disposable atomizer. The two parts screw together easily, and the battery is automatic – just inhale to activate it and it’ll shut off automatically when you’re done. The green tip fades in as you inhale and back out when you stop, just like a real cigarette (with a slightly altered color scheme). There are two small rectangular gaps in the band where the cartridge meets the battery attachment, which causes an anemic wheezing sound as you inhale unless you cover them with your fingers.
The Ozone Smoke cartridges come in four different nicotine strengths, Full (16mg), Medium (11mg), Light (8mg) and Zero. This gives you plenty of options for reducing your nicotine intake, although some ex-smokers may wish there was a stronger option available too. That said, the Full or Medium cartridges will be more than adequate for most users.
Flavors and Vapor
This is arguably the most important area for e-cigarettes, because they’re almost entirely responsible for the quality of the vaping experience. You get a significant amount of vapor from an Ozone Smoke e-cig, but not as much as with some other brands. It falls a little shy of the amount you’d expect from a tobacco cigarette, but it’s easy to adjust because it isn’t far removed from the genuine experience. It’s a really smooth smoke, but as a result some users may be left looking for a more significant throat-hit. The feeling is more like smoking a hookah than a tobacco cigarette.
Ozone Smoke offer a pretty comprehensive flavor package, with Tobacco, Menthol, Cherry, Green Apple, Blueberry, Strawberry, Coffee, Peach, Energy and Vanilla cartridges available. The tobacco flavor has an authentic, cigarette-like taste tinged with a pleasant sweetness. Most of the flavors, such as the coffee, strawberry, and peach, are full-bodied and really capture the essence of the genuine taste. The blueberry is similar, but tastes a little more synthetic (reminiscent of a low-cost blueberry soft drink), and the energy drink flavor is well-executed but it’s a somewhat unusual choice which I didn’t personally take to. Vanilla and peach are the stand-out flavors for me, with the former managing to be both subtle and instantly recognizable.
The Ozone Smoke cartridges are approximately 10%-20% larger than many other brands in the industry, which makes them a better value for the user.
The battery-life on the Ozone Smoke e-cig is more than adequate for the majority of users. The documentation claims you get around 400 puffs from the regular battery – and whilst I haven’t counted it seems like this can only apply under ideal conditions (potentially if you take pretty short drags). However, if you take a fully charged battery to work and use the e-cig as you ordinarily would you won’t run out of battery. Plus, you can take the spare with you just in case. The LED flashes ten times when the battery is low, then you simply screw the battery into the USB charger and plug it in. The red light on it switches to green when it’s charged.
The Ozone Smoke e-cigarette is a solid product, with a variety of flavors and a more than adequate battery life. Tobacco smokers may feel it’s somewhat lacking in the vapor production department, though, and it lacks the throat hit of an authentic cigarette. Still, you get a smooth smoke, plenty of options for cutting down your nicotine intake and an intuitive two-piece design.
