I am pretty new to vaping and the use of PVs. I have used various ecigs in the past from friends including 501s and egos. I have been wanting one for the past year but always forgot about it when I had extra money to spend. I am disgusted by my smoking habit but could not quit no matter how hard I tried. I am bipolar and my body reacts positivly to nicotine so I knew ecigs were the right choice for me. It all started last friday. I was in my buddy's car for a 6 hour trip and we stopped at Pilot to fuel up. He doesn't allow smoking in his car. I went inside for a drink, snacks, and of course, good old fashioned cowboy killers. As the cashier was ringing me up I noticed a Mistic ecig display. $7.99 for a battery and cartomizer which they claimed was equal to a pack of smokes. I bought it and went outside to quickly smoke a red. Back in the car, I opened up the box and screwed the carto onto the battery. I took a drag and thought it tasted pretty good. I continued to use the Mistic during the 6 hours or so down to the ocean. I was drinking all night so I chain smoked reds like usual. The next afternoon we drove home and I used the Mistic during the trip. I was surprised that the battery was still going let alone the cartomizer. Back home I went back to Pilot and bought $14.99 kit which I am reviewing now. It appears to be an 808 but I'm not sure. A marb red is used for size refference. The packaging is a flip-top box just like cancer sticks. It includes a battery, a usb charger, and two 18mg traditional flavor cartos. My original cartomizer from Friday just died today and I have been vaping every hour or so. When I smoked, I went through a pack every day and a half on average. The battery lasted me almost 3 days before I had to charge it. The battery charges in a few hours so it's best to do so overnight but since I have a spare fully charged, I never have to worry and these batteries out perform my expectations. I had consistant taste and vapor the entire way through the carto. You can pop the tops off and refill these easily and I plan to do so. There are channels visible on the led cap where air can be drawn through, if you plug them up you can't vape. I wish I knew what model this is and no one seems to be sure. This is a great little product and I am very happy with it until I get around to purchasing an ego. The build quality is excellent and the flavor is nice. I get nice thick clouds and a great throat hit. All in all, is this the best ecig out there? No. It is great to start out with and it I don't personally see a need to upgrade quickly. I am beyond impressed and would reccomend this to anyone new to ecigs or someone wanting a backup. Mistic ecigs hit the nail on the head when it comes to quality and price. I have 3 cigs that I havent touched and hopefully it will stay that way. Thanks Mistic for breaking the.gas station ecig stereotype!!!
