The Smokeless Image brand of electronic cigarettes is committed to producing the highest quality of e-cigarettes.
After speaking with the founder of Smokeless Image, I knew that their products focused on satisfying the customers. Based on the widely popular KR808D-1 model, the Smokeless Image E-Cigarette has advanced in the type of battery and cartomizers used. These changes have made the Smokeless Image e-cigs far superior over the original in every aspect.
Simplicity and electronic cigarettes that replicate cigarettes are what many smokers want. The VOLT e-cig by Smokeless Image has successfully succeeded in fulfilling the purposes of electronic cigarettes. The VOLT KR808d-1 model is made with minimal complexity while maintaining high performance. User can say that the e-cig simply “works” without needing extra bells and whistles. In a marketplace filled with other e-cigs, the Smokeless Image e-cigs clearly fills the gap that has been missing in the quality of electric cigarettes. As a result, the e-cig has established a powerful and devoted user base.
There are many electronic cigarettes brands in the market that offer alternative methods for smoking. I have been focusing on the vaping phenomenon that has had a gradual growth in North America the last few years. Despite the abundance of brands, there was no single brand and supplier that fit the balance of vaping production that most smokers were looking for in e-cigs.
The E-Cigarette Market Had Been Missing an E-cig that Delivers High Performance and Satisfying Vapor Production at a Consistent Rate While Being Reasonably Priced
Finding a balance between the quality of the vapors and the battery life made buying e-cigarettes difficult. No matter what kit you had bought, the e-cig will probably have a battery life that lasts shorter than the time it takes to smoke an actual cigarette. There are other issues that smokers bring up when talking about e-cigs. Short battery life, burnt taste, low vapor volume, and difficulties to draw from the e-cig are a few of the popular complaints. To add, the model of some other e-cigs tend to draw more complaints
The design of e-cigs definitely matters. Smokers want something that is really simple to use and does not take away from the process and satisfaction of smoking. A good e-cig model is one that is very similar to a traditional cigarette. Essentially, the design differences between an e-cig and a regular cigarette have to be invisible and unnoticeable. Most often a good design is something that is overlooked and unobtrusive. Otherwise, people tend to complain about how it looks.
To me, the Smokeless Image VOLT Electronic Cigarettes line has had the most success in overcoming the complaints of e-cigs. The VOLT lineup found the balance of good design, high quality vapor, and strong battery life. It has become the first supplier to be truly successful in answering consumers’ complaints.
From the Early Beginning, I Had a Feeling Smokeless Image Was Going to be Regarded As One of the Best E-Cigarette Brands
The people at Smokeless Image truly know how what their customers want and how to create products that cater to smokers’ needs. The success of the company can be attributed to the correct decisions made in manufacturing their e-cig. So what exactly makes Smokeless Image and the VOLT e-cig lineup more impressive than other electronic brand?
Smokeless Image has become successful because of their meticulous approach in producing their electronic cigarettes. Unlike other brands that have jumped on the opportunity of creating vapor cigarettes, Smokeless Image focused on creating a superior quality of performance and service. Their e-cigs were crafted to fulfill the exact needs and desires of people wanting to go smokeless. Rather than making and advertising various products, the company kept its focus on creating a line of electronic cigarettes that is much better than competitors. This was a great decision because offering too many products can be confusing to common smokers that do not have much knowledge in the differences of smokeless cigarettes. Smokers that do not clearly know the products will ultimately turn away and just head to a convenient store and buy their smokes there. By providing one clear line of e-cigs, Smokeless Image makes it easy for smokers to transfer over to smokeless cigarettes.
The products from Smokeless Image can be compared to Totally Wicked or Volcano E Cigs. The two latter suppliers attempt to cater to every smoker by making various models of e-cigs. For example are Volcano’s “Lavatube” and Totally Wicked’s “Torpedo”. The two brands are practically identical and offer smokers a variable voltage mod. These little functions allow smokers to change the amount of voltage that goes through the e-cig. Honestly, however, only a few smokers will find themselves wanted, much less needing, and this function. Volcano E Cigs and Totally Wicked have created many products that does not necessarily provide the best quality. The line of electronic cigarettes both suppliers offer look very gimmicky compared to the models Smokeless Image offers.
I cannot get away saying that Smokeless Image only makes minimalistic e-cigs as the VOLT offers some extra features. One of the best features is that the battery life is much longer than other mini electronic cigarette. The company offers a concise selection of accessories like the VOLT X2 Batteries and Battery Charging Case.
Personally, I have been a big advocate of electronic smoking. I have been a participant and an avid observer of the current movement. Like today’s technology, there electronic smoking has gone through many changes and evolutions. I have mentioned all the positive outcomes in my life since converting to smokeless cigarettes three years ago, but have heard many negative responses. People that I personally know, who have been smoking for years, retorted that the e-cigs were not impressive, made it hard to take a drag, and did not provide the same satisfaction as a regular cigarette. As a proponent of e-cigs, I was irritated by their responses because they now believe that all electronic cigarettes are made equal. This pisses me off because they have closed the doors to try out other e-cig brands.
I want to point out that e-cigarettes are not created equal. It seems like a lot of people that are new to the scene of vaping do not understand the differences or simply just ignore it. Part of this ignorance can be blamed on various companies that have jumped the smokeless cigarette bandwagon. Many of these companies do not do their homework and wrongly advertise e-cigs. The truth is, there is a huge range in terms of performance, quality, and the technology used to make electronic cigarettes. The qualities of early models are incomparable to the quality of models today. New smokeless smokers sometimes fall for new companies that produce e-cigs that have underdeveloped atomizer and battery. Obviously, the qualities of performance from these companies are much lower than companies that are knowledgeable in e-cigs. New smokers will believe that these low-quality e-cigarettes are the same as others and may lose interest in trying others.
Since many brand name e-cigs have gotten business, more spending has shifted to advertisement and marketing rather than in production. The most advertised product, rather than the highest quality one, then becomes the staple image of the electric cigarette. The sad reality is that most industries, not limited to electronic cigarettes, care for brand recognition rather than quality. The market becomes flooded with sub-par quality e-cigs and leaves exceptional products like the Smokeless Image VOLT E-Cig out of the spotlight. The VOLT E-Cig becomes overlooked by the majority with only vaping enthusiasts as its main user base.
Thankfully, Having High-Quality Products With Excellent Customer Satisfaction is a Great Way to Get Noticed and Spread to More People
In the sea of sub-par electronic cigarettes sold by Blu Cigs and Luci is the VOLT E-Cig by Smokeless Image. The product has advanced the technology of cartomizer 2-piece mini e-cigarette. The people who created the VOLT line have to be perfectionists. They have crafted an e-cig with precise connection points, perfect placement of the heating coil, and smooth passage of airflow. Even the battery was crafted with such ingenuity that it looks and feels luxurious. Simply comparing the design of the Smokeless Image products with the likes of Luci or Blu Cig will show the vast difference in quality. Compared to other e-cigarette of the same class, the VOLT is clearly the most desirable and offers the best experience as other brand names.
Smokers who have used any of the VOLT models will quickly realize that Smokeless Image has focused solely on meeting high standards rather than high advertisements. There are many subtle details that go into making the VOLT. The KR808D model has a better constructed cartomizer than the popularly used m601 and E9/V9 models. Listed are the differences that I have noticed in the VOLT KR808d:
- It has better precision and more symmetrical connection between battery and cartomizer.
- The outer and inner surfaces are separated by in-laid rubber on the connectors of both the battery and cartomizer.
- Snug fit between the battery and cartomizer connectors.
- Easier, smoother, and consistent vapor because the heating coil is horizontal, I does not need a wire looping in the airflow tube.
- Filler materials have higher resistance to heat. Even after long use with high voltage (with Pro-Vari Mod and Ego Booster Batteries), there were no burnt taste.
- Cartomizers have easy refill caps. I did not notice any degradation of the taste (no cardboard flavor).
- Automatic battery switches powers on to produce more vapor. Every inhalation will produce more vapors. Also is not super sensitive as others, which tend to turn on because of wind.
The Amazing VOLT Battery
As I have stated earlier, the battery life is one of the major concerns smokers have against e-cigarettes. The worst thing that could happen to a smoker is to find out that his or her e-cig has drained and need to be recharged. Many people thought that the low battery life will prevent electronic cigarettes from being widely used. The challenge manufactures have faced is how to provide a large capacity into a miniature sized e-cig. Bigger models were more popular because they were able to hold a longer battery life. A battery that fit into a traditional sized cigarette while maintaining an a long life was the main challenge. Smokers that bought the mini sized e-cigs, which are about the same size as regular cigarettes, often complained about the frequency needed to change the batteries. With the limited capacity of batteries, ranging from 120 to 180 maH, e-cigs tended to last only about an hour.
The VOLT batteries have changed the game, however, by providing a higher battery life. Smokeless Image was able to pack greater capacity in maH while keeping the miniature size of the electronic cigarette. Other e-cigs that with the same physical model holds about 150maH, much less than the 220maH in 65mm VOLT battery. If you are like me though, I would opt for the 78mm battery, which holds up to 320maH. Regardless of the battery, the VOLT brand lessens the need to change or charge the battery.
Despite the higher-than-average battery life, heavy smokers will probably be unhappy run the battery dry over the course of the day. Smokeless Image and other suppliers recommend heavy smokers to carry an extra battery with them in the event that they cannot recharge. There are Portable Charging Cases that you can buy so you can charge one battery while using another. Compared to early models, and some of the current popular brand names, the VOLT E-Cig Batteries are noticeably better and longer lasting.
Reviewing Smokeless Image VOLT Starter Kits
Each starter kit offers different features. VOLT Standard and VOLT Pro Starter Kit are the two popular choices. If you are a heavy smoker, I recommend the VOLT Pro Kit because it comes with the Portable Charging Case. As I have previous written, a Portable Charging Case (PCC) is great for frequent smokers so they can have one battery charging while using another battery in the e-cig. In addition, the PCC can carry an extra cartomizer and an extra battery. The PCC can fully charge a dead batter four times before having to be recharged itself. To size the PCC is similar to an iPhone 4. Casual smokers may not want to spend an extra $20 for the Portable Charging Case, but keep in mind that you save $10 off the PCC by buying the Pro Kit.
I have the VOLT Pro Kit, so I will talk about my experience with it. Needless to say, I have greatly enjoyed it. The Kit contains everything that you need to keep you from needing to recharge your batteries and a three month warranty. In addition, every starter kit can be personalized by you. There are different colors of batteries and LED lights that you can choose from. The Kit contains:
- Five Filter Tips of various flavor and strength
- Two rechargeable batteries
- One Charging Case
Smokeless Image offers two different battery sizes that range in twelve different colors- from the typical white and black to a bold red and yellow. Remember that the sizes of the battery determine how many maH is holds. The 65mm sized battery holds 220maH while the 78mm holds 320maH. The colored batteries come in an “auto” mode. Whereas, some batteries can be bought with “manual” mode, the modes simply refer to the button on the battery. Some smokers want to manually hold the button while inhaling the vapor. When the button is pressed, the batter is activated and the cartomizer begins heating up. This results in a thicker vapor.
To me, the differences between the automatic and manual batteries are similar to dri
ving with stick shift to an automatic. The biggest difference, in either car and e-cig situation, is that with manual you have a greater feel of control. You can control the thickness of the e-cig vapor like the way you can control the transmission of your car. First time smokers should buy an automatic battery first so they can have an easy transition to electric cigarettes. I would recommend buying a kit with two batteries so you can have both automatic and manual. A little added perk to having manual batteries that you can use a “drip tip” without having to worry about liquid penetrating the inside of the battery. If you know how to properly use a “drip tip” you already know this, but do not drip into the cart when the cartomizer is fastened to an auto battery.
Once you have chosen your desired battery size, color, and type, you have t
he option of choosing a flavor. The kits come with a pack of five cartomizers. You can opt for five blank cartomizers or choose from the following flavors:
- Smooth Sampler
- Sweet Sampler
- Ice Menthol
- Dessert Joe
- Menthol Burst
- Classic Grape
I personally chose the Classic Grape because I enjoy everything in grape flavor. Choose what flavors are best for you or you can just have blank cartomizers.
After choosing a flavor, you choose the nicotine level. You can decide from a range of 0% to an extra high 2.4%. This is totally dependent on the type of smoker you are. I am not a fan of nicotine, so I opted with 0mg. Many e-cig smokers will recommend you first start off with a higher dose and steadily come down until a desired level is met.
Finally, you have the option of a Mega Charging Case, which you have the option of picking form four colors, or the Portable Charging Case. As the name suggests, the Mega Charging Case is much larger, can charge two batteries at the same time, and hold six cartomizers. The prices is the same for either the PCC and the Mega Charging Case. You are pretty much left a choice between portability or having multiple functioning charging station. Both have their own advantages so pick one that best fit your lifestyle. I picked the PCC because I can simply put it in my pocket without much hassle.
My Final Thoughts on the Smokeless Image VOLT Electronic Cigarette
If you have not gotten it by now, I love my VOLT Electronic Cigarette. Smokeless Image has truly pushed e-cigs into a different level with their innovations to the VOLT line. The goal of the company, which is publicly printed on their website, is to bring “high quality electronic cigarettes and accessories”. With the VOLT E-Cigs, they have accomplished that part of the goal. Compared to other e-cigs, the VOLT is in a class of its own. The battery life that is offered is far more superior than many brand named models that come from Luci and Blu Cigs. In addition, Smokeless Image continues by stating that they want to provide excellent customer service while selling their products at a reasonable price. The prices of the VOLT E-Cig are much better than others when you compare the quality per dollar spent.
In the growing industry if electronic cigarettes, many companies are advertising various gimmicks to get more customers to buy their product. Even though I am glad that e-cigs are getting more publicity, the market is crowded with inferior products. However, the humble Smokeless Image supplier went onto a different direction and focused on offering high quality products over advertisement. They have transcended above their competitors in terms of quality by advancing the technology in e-cig cartomizer and battery. The common complaints of e-cigs generating a burnt taste, having a short batter life, and producing small vapors have been solved by Smokeless Image.
The smokeless movement is continually growing with Smokeless Image leading the way in quality production. Smokers interested in joining the vaping community will be glad that they started with a VOLT Electronic Cigarettes Starter Kit. There are different types of Starter Kits that can be easily customized for beginners and enthusiasts alike. The VOLT E-Cig surely satisfies by providing smooth vapor with a long battery life. Other electronic cigarettes do not even come close the battery life and the quality of the vapor because the changes of these cigarettes are specific to Smokeless Image. In addition, the burnt taste that smokers dislike about electronic cigarettes is absent because of way the cartomizer has been engineered.
To list the reasons of why you should Smokeless Image VOLT:
- Smooth vapors because of the changes in heating coil.
- Cartomizers have high heat resistance that prevents a burnt taste.
- Having a long battery life means less recharging and unexpected dead battery.
- A Portable Charging Case.
- A discount when you compare it to other e-cigs.
