Hope it is okay to add another review and to post it here. I'm just excited lol and I know there are some here who like minis so -
If there is a mini or ‘real size’ kit on the market, I own it. I have spent a small fortune trying to find a real size e-cig that offers performance. (Hold your comments big mod kids. Some of us don’t want to smoke something that looks like a microphone lol). I have also purchased the eRoll, 510T, 510, G6, etc. (Not real size but cigalike).
Anyway, I came super close to finding the best real size for about a year with the ePuffer Colibri. It was great until something changed in their cartomizers. They lacked a strong seal and it was windy city on every puff. This made the performance suffer… and the very same for the X3 (another real size mini.)
Note: Real size is 7.8mm in diameter and 84-86mm in length. I see many say other kits are real size but 8.5mm in diameter and 100+mm long is not a real cig size. Blu and etc.
Now of course there is the NJOY KING. I find that to be the closest thing to smoking since… smoking lol but I am not about to purchase 2 a day! We all know they last ½ a day if you’re lucky and the price is outrageous.
So as I am always hunting for real cig size minis, I found the NEO (The same company that makes Mistic.) and thought to give it a shot. I was not sure it was true size as the site offers no measurement specs but says, “Same size as traditional cigarette.” It is. The NEO is the very same size as the NJOY KING.
For $14.99 you receive 1 (sealed) auto battery, 1 USB charger and 2 cartomizers (18mg) all inside a glossy cardboard cig pack looking box. How good could it be for $15.00?
It is the best real size e-cig I have used and I have used them all. I am shocked!
The NEO has a nice pull to it. It is not windy and not super tight. Just feels right. The battery lights red and has a black, ash looking tip just like the NJOY King. It has the faint painted stripes like a real cigarette with no logo. The logo is on the cartomizers. There is a 6 second cut off which is plenty of time.
Cartomizsers are priced at $7.99 for 3 and/or $13.99 for 5. They are available in 18mg and 24mg, Tobacco or menthol. No funky flavors and that’s fine with me. I smoked cigarettes for years, not apples or cherries. Flavor is so subjective but I like it. It does tend to have a metallic after taste but it’s sort of sweet and smooth. The cartomizers are bottom coil and simple to refill. The company does not recommend you do so (you decide why) but anymore then one or two refills is about all you can get with such a tiny cart. You could take the wadding out and drip (bottom coli) but I will just buy carts as they are affordable enough. (See update below.)
So for me, I am happy to have a real sized ecig again and I am getting the same amount of vapor from the Neo as I do with my eRoll. $15.00? Now you tell me LOL!!
Update: Shipping seems slow and they do not provide tracking without hunting them down for one. Also, as I stated later in this thread, I feel the cartomozers are over priced. $13.99 for 5 when the ePuffer Colibri/Nano (same size unit so competition) is $8.95 for 5.
