Are they really that horrible? I ordered one without doing research (will be my first ecig) and am probably going to be too lazy to return it. As of right now I'm not really planning on quitting analogs completely but only cutting down. I generally smoke every couple hours and have access to a power outlet the entire day unless I'm out at the bar but in that case I'm not sure I would be using it anyways as I doubt I would like to use it while drinking.
So my main question is provided that one battery lasts one cartridge or 2 I don't think battery Life would be an issue. I mean if a cartridge is close to a pack at all and I have to recharge after every pack or switch to the backup battery I am fine with that. I have learned I need to unscrew it so it doesn't go off by itself.
