I am looking for the strongest possible, 0-Nicotine, Menthol rig. Every brand I've seen requires you to buy an $30 - $50 "starter kit" just to try it out. I have been through three now and none have been satisfactory.
Some background: I am doing this for my wife who has MS and is trying to give up smoking (Misty Green 120's) after 40 years. She says she's likes the Menthol and the feel of smoking but wants to eliminate the nicotine and other nasty things. The problem is that of the 4 brands she has tried, only one (Logic Zero) has a strong enough Menthol taste for her… and that brand is a disposable design, about $8 for 400 puffs, and currently out of stock.
So far she has tried 3 "cartomizer" brands: Volt, Vapor4Life, and Nuvo. She found Volt a distant second choice to Logic Zero and the other two weak to be acceptable.
I would like to get a refillable brand to economize but have been told (by the V4Life tech) that you should only use refillable cartomizers or tanks with a manual battery because they leak and ruin an automatic battery. I also read on this forum that you can get the strongest "hit" from a manual battery. The problem is that my wife is so weak she has difficulty pushing the button on an iPod, so I am not sanguine that she will be able to use a manual battery.
I would appreciate a recommendation of a strong, refillable, automatic 0-Nicotine Menthol brand and/or any other advice which might help. She is now 5 weeks into this Nicotine free program, so I am confident of her success if we can find the right match.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
