Hello I am Patrick...I have not been perfect in advoiding real cigs but usuallly when I have a working battery and Carto I am fine..... I have been using blu ecig so far and would probably have some of the same complaints as some others have had....aside from flavor..I have been ok with that. batteries are short lived but I have 4(and actually lost one) However I have ordered south beach smoke and V2(express kit) should get both this week. one question I have is the beta clearomizer a ok buy with v2? I also ordered juice from johnson creek which I have refilled the blu's with....not sure if I did a perfect job but it tasted ok. is there a south beach or V2 forum here?
