    I couldn't believe what I was seeing at about 4:20AM, when I awoke to see a TV commercial for "The Cue Vapor System". Thought about getting up then, just to post and find out if anyone else had seen it. Commercial was one of those TV Special Offers, but product can also be bought online (see link below).

    There were comparisons of the "Cue" system to regular vaping set-ups (which are messy and difficult to deal with according to the commercial). Another comparison was of the amount of vapor produced using the "Cue"...compared to what looked to be probably a 510 cigalike battery or an E-Smart with a clearo. Can't remember the other things meant to promote it over regular vaping set-ups, but there were several more.

    System costs $29.99 + S/H

    This Exclusive Offer Includes:
    ✔ The Cue™ Device
    ✔ 5ml Smooth Tobacco Cartridge in 3mg/ml nicotine
    ✔ Deluxe Carry Case
    ✔ 3 ft. USB cord
    ✔ Dual-port Car Charger

    Plus a FREE Bonus!
    ✔ Your choice of a full-size, 3mg/ml nicotine cartridge: Smooth Tobacco or Menthol Tobacco

    Cartridges come in 3mg or 6mg nic.

    Did anyone else see the commercial and think they were seeing things?

    I believe I saw it or something like it a few months ago. What I saw was a half hour infomercial in the wee morning hours. I had brought my brother in to the ER and saw the infomercial playing on the TV in the waiting room. I couldn't help from snickering as the advertiser tried to convince viewers how their obviously "superior" vape setup was better than anything else on the market.

    Pretty cool! Wish they would allow more advertising like that. I mean, why not...they advertise Nicorette, Chantex, and other products to help smokers quit a lot of which have nicotine in them! I guess it's just a matter of time before the government tells us when to and where to take a crap...and when to flush, because we are not using the right water....

    I can see how that device would appeal to current smokers, especially in the age of microwave popcorn, Starbucks and the heat n' eat gourmet meal.

    A lot of the current smokers I encounter want nothing to do with any of my 12+ (and counting) setups.

    I'm convinced that pod systems like this Cue thingie will do more to get smokers off tobacco than anything in my arsenal of mods, tanks, wire, cotton, flavors, bases, nic, tools ad insaneum.

    I haven't seen the commercial. I suppose it's useful up until the FDA decides it's dangerous to children, just like what happened to tobacco commercials.

    Honestly I kind of miss the "Marlboro man." LOL.

    I think its more a matter of marketing budget to be able to afford television advertising. I've only seen television commercials made by the Big Tobacco companies (Blu, Vuse), and they obviously have the advertising budget. Most other vape manufacturers can't afford to market their products on TV.

    He just passed away in the last few months. His funeral was held locally, and his cousin, Paula Deen, was there. A friend knew him and said he was a genuinely nice man.

    Totally agree with you. Vaping is too confusing for many people, at first. I find it so discouraging when advanced set ups are suggested for the new people.

    They may appeal to the youngsters, but I know I had to work my way up, learning one part at a time. Us old folks don’t do well getting chucked into the deep end.

    And $6.99 for a 5 ml "cartridge".

    Classic "Give away the razor while selling the blades at huge margins" business model.

    FWIW, a Juul pod has more nicotine and only costs $4.00...

    I sometimes have to remind myself that not all smokers looking to quit or vapers want it to become a “hobby” and are as enthusiastic about vaping as I am. Some people may have no desire to “move on” to box mods, building coils or DIY e juice. They’re just as happy with a “convient” device to use.

    I believe many people just want a healthier alternative to smoking and nothing else. Charge it, Pop a cartridge in and that’s it.

    Anything that can offer a smoker to find that alternative is great whether it’s a pod, pen or combo tank/mod device is great!

    Yep! They send 1 Smooth Tobacco one and another *Bonus* one of your choice (another Smooth Tobacco or a Menthol one), with the kit. Then hit you up for the $6.99 + S/H for replacement cartridges as needed.

    IMO, 5mL of 3mg or 6mg isn't going to last the average, longterm smoker very long. But, if it helps them get off the smokes.........

    I honestly thought I was going to be like that, happy with a cig replacement that didn’t require much thought and very little effort. And here I am with 5 liters of nic in the freezer.

    I watch this commercial all the time. I love how dramatic it is with other vapers when they talk about what a hassle it is to deal with a "tank". Cracks me up

    I don't find a Panzerkampfwagen VIII Maus (sorry no way was I going to try to spell that one on my own) remotely hard to operate. Things either get out of my way, or they get vaporized.

    I save mine for rush hour in snowbird season.

    I believe Cue Vapor System is a division of Swisher International.

    Which makes sense given what TV Ads cost.

    7 dollars for 5ml replacement cartriges. Wow. What a deal. That comes to 140 bucks for 100 ml. And in 2 different flavors too. Im sorry, but this kind of thing is strictly for the gullible.

    Yeah... but that includes the Coil.

    Cue™ Vapor E-Liquid Cartidges

    I'm not a Pod Mod user. But isn't that about what Many Pods Cost?

    And if it can get someone Off Cigarettes, or even just pointed in the Right Direction, isn't that Money Well Spent?

    I have to admit you are right. With me I wanted to quit smoking and started with an Ego battery cartamizor. Once I saw the vape equipment on the site where I was buying my juice I got intrigued, then I got on You Tube and I was hooked. After I saw some vape competitions there was no turning back. My collection continues to grow as does my skills! rba, rta, rdta, rda, and now I'm waiting on my first mech, and thinking about squonking.

    It's been an interesting journey to say the least.
