    Question ENCORE OR ENCOREVAPOR has anyone tried this e-cig?

    Hello I just joined and wish I had found this forum before I purchased my first kit.

    I bought my first kit at my local tobacco shop.

    It is called an ENCORE or ENCOREVAPOR.COM out of Illinois.

    I would like to know if anyone has had any experience with this company because I cannot find any reviews online.

    I would also like to know if there is someplace that I can get replacement nicotine cartridges for it cheaper than $26 for 5 of them?

    Thanks for being here!!!

    Hello and welcome, isbnbook! $26 for 5 cartridges? That raises a big red flag for me. No way should you have to pay that much for cartridges.

    Take a look at these videos and you'll see why:

    Yep... I now know but I spent about $82 on it and am now going to use it. Any good camel wide liquid flavors out there? And can I get any tips for cheap?

    After reading some others in the juice forums, I thought I would try filling some myself. The kit cost me about $82 and I am stuck with it.

    Seems to last me about 3-5 hours of on and off puffing and charges in about 45 minutes to an hour.

    First unit I got from the tobacco shop didn't work at all and they said I didn't buy it from them so I could not return it to them. (real .....es) I was so pissed!!!

    The company exchanged it stating that the first was faulty. Just got the working one this last Thursday.

    How long have you had the kit and didn't it come with some sort of a money back guarantee? If you can get your money back I would do that. That's what I did with GreenSmokes. Don't let the smoke shop push you around. If they're going to stock them, then they need to give you your money back.

    You will not find any juices out there that will taste exactly like what you were smoking. You can try some of the other tobacco flavors, but you should at least try some of the other flavors that are out there and not limit yourself to just tobacco. You never know when you'll find the flavor, or flavors, that you like more than anything else.

    My first e-cig was an Encore purchased locally. The shop you bought yours from seems to be jacking up the prices a lot. I bought my kit for $50 and the refill cartos were $15.

    The cartos that you can buy for them are easy to refill. The cig is an okay one, as long as you take care of it properly it should last awhile. Only word of caution I have is to make sure not to overfill if you refill your own cartos. My mom did fry a few of them because of this, if the juice leaks into the battery it's toast.

    I tried with the police and BBB. Store items different from online.

    Thanks for the inf.

    But what did you think of the nicotine, draw and company?

    For my first e-cig I thought the draw was satisfactory but wasn't satisfied with the amount of nicotine. I did cut down from 30 smokes a day to 2-3 when I first bought it which is great. I was able to quit completely when I received an order from freedomsmokesusa.com of 24mg juice. I smoked American Spirit Organic roll your own, which is very strong tobacco.

    I also think the flavor of their cartos is good, tasted like Levi Garrett to me. It's honestly the truest tobacco flavor I have yet to vape, it just wasn't a true cigarette flavor. I haven't had any experience dealing directly with the company, but I think my mom is going to mail back the ones she fried eventually and I'll update this thread if she does. She is satisfied with it and just purchased another kit to replace her dead one. I am curious as to whether or not they will exchange her fried batteries since it was her fault they died tbh.

    I'm now using a 510 box mod and a tube mod which run at a slightly higher voltage, but I'm keeping the Encore around as a back up. For an automatic super-mini I think it's just as good as any other out there. I would personally recommend anyone getting started buy a manual mega battery (pen-style I think is what most people refer to them as), but wouldn't tell them to just throw away an Encore if that's what they have already.

    My only real complaint with my Encore is that I can't figure out what kind of threading it is, so I can't purchase blank cartos for it online. I'm partly to blame for this because I've been to lazy to find my camera and post pics here on the forum. If it's a commonly available thread I'm sure someone could ID it.

    I would advise first and foremost that you order some juice from a vendor online to do your own refills. Refills cost less then 50c a carto, much less then 5 bucks each you would pay for Encores prefilled cartos. Then give it a few weeks, and see if it works for you. The most common complaint about super-minis is the battery life, but some people don't vape enough to have an issue with it. Read the forum for 15-30 mins every day. After a few weeks you'll have a better understanding of what hardware is available out there, and with the experience you've gained with your Encore you'll have some idea regarding what will work best for you. Maybe you'll want a slightly larger battery, or even a huge battery. Maybe you'll want to try high voltage, or you'll be curious about juice box mods.

    Take it slow. Buy another device in a few weeks, but hold onto that Encore for a back up until you can afford to purchase more. Honestly, for the majority of vapers out there you don't have the most optimal device. This shouldn't discourage you however, because you still made a good investment. Take the time to get comfortable with vaping and don't spend much energy on quitting cigarettes. It's a learning process and the more you learn the less you smoke. When many vapers quit smoking completely it's not even a decision, just a side effect of there new habit.

    From my experiences refilling Encore cartos I would say it's very easy. It has a different filler then the other cartos I've bought. All my 510 cartos have a polyester batting type filler; the Encore ones have a fabric type filler. To refill them, pop off the white cap on the mouthpiece end. Drip 2-3 drops on the filler. The best way I found to get it on the filler and not down the air hole is to let it run down the walls of the carto. After a few drops look at it and watch how fast the filler absorbs the juice. When it stops sucking it up quickly stop filling. Let it sit, battery side down on a paper towel for around 10 mins. Put the cap back on it, turn it upside down, and blow through the battery side while holding a paper towl underneath. Keep blowing until no more juice comes out the mouth piece. That's it! It's ready to use again.

    P.s. I was a camel wide and Drum smoker
