We have decided to drop the LUCI electronic cigarette review as a promoted provider on our site due to lack of communication and poor customer service response. We noticed that LUCI redid their website design and altered many of their prices. We wanted to reach out to them to inquire about many of these new features and also to simply let them know of the many broken links we kept running into. We tried to email them 3 separate times and never got a response on anything and gave them over 2 weeks. During those 2 weeks we also tried calling them a ton of times only to sit on hold for over 30 minutes never actually getting anyone on the phone. We do not recommend going with LUCI as there are many electronic cigarette companies out there without these issues. Alternatively you can check out our top rated brand SmokeStik Electronic Cigarettes
LUCI Electronic Cigarette Review
There a few things that I enjoyed immensely from the LUCI electronic cigarette however there were several things we were not happy about. First thing I noticed when I took my first hit of the electronic cigarette was this electronic cigarette was incredibly smooth on the throat. Some of the other electronic cigarettes I have tried can have sort of a harsh throat feeling. It’s similar to if you normally smoke regular cigarettes and then smoke a menthol, you get that scratchy feeling in the back of you throat. The LUCI electronic cigarette is nothing like that.
The LUCI electronic cigarette cartridge was short lived however. We tried several of their electronic cigarette cartridges and each one was more disappointing than the one before it. On top of all that they refuse to respond to our numerous emails as we said above and cant ever get anyone on the phone. This shows that LUCI electronic cigarette more than likely has a horrible customer support and I honestly wish that things could have been different but what can I do if they wont even respond to the people who are promoting them?
LUCI has 4 different electronic cigarette starter kits that you can choose from: the Regular LUCI Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit $99.99, the LUCI Extended Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit $149.99, the LUCI Advanced Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit $199.99, and the LUCI Complete Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit $249.99.
The regular LUCI Starter Kit cost currently $99.99 and comes with everything you need to get started. This package includes: 1 LUCI, 1 Extra Extended Battery, 1 electronic cigarette Home Charging Kit, 5 electronic cigarette Flavored Cartridges. The replacement cartridges from the electronic cigarette starter kit will get you about 1-2 weeks worth of smoking (vaping).
LUCI Electronic Cigarette Company currently offers free shipping on all orders over $100. They also offer a lifetime warranty on the electronic cigarette atomizers, which is just unheard of as those are supposed to go out over time. However without being able to contact them to verify what is covered and get details on how the warrenty works how good can it be? Also included in every purchase is a free money back guarantee on their electronic cigarette products.
The LUCI electronic cigarette is ok to go with, however, we feel that the price of their electronic cigarette kits are rather high and just not that great. There are much better companies that give you more for your money and have a higher quality electronic cigarette like the Smoke Stick electronic cigarette or Firebrand electronic cigarette.
Totally Wicked Electronic Cigarette Review is a decent electronic cigarette company to go with. They have so many electronic cigarette (E-Cig) products that it can be a bit difficult to navigate. Totally Wicked electronic cigarette is by far the largest inventory stocked company we have come across. This company has 6 different styles of the electronic cigarette and their e-liquid has a ton of different selections to choose. Since this company has so many different electronic cigarettes we are going to focus on what we recommend and that is the Totally Wicked 510 TECC TITAN Electronic Cigarette.
Totally Wicked Electronic Cigarette Review
The Totally Wicked 510 TECC TITAN Electronic Cigarette or E-NIs (Electronic Nicotine Inhalators) have a bunch of accessories that can be purchased for it however many are over priced even if they are necessary for the electronic cigarette to work. For instance the atomizer needs to be replaced about ever 4 to 6 weeks. You can purchase spare manual and automatic Totally Wicked TITAN electronic cigarette batteries these are available in economical 5 piece multi packs or purchased individually this will make the price about average. We recommend the manual electronic cigarette battery as it last much longer and you get better throat hits in our opinion since you can take much bigger hits. They stock TITAN electronic cigarette (E-Cig) atomizers in multi packs and as single units. Maybe you want to charge your electronic cigarette while on the move? If so how about a purchasing a PCC charger case? (PCC case is included in the starter kit that we recommend). Totally Wicked also has plenty for those that want a little customization in their lives with a huge assortment of colors and styles.
Do you work at a computer in the office or at home? If you do maybe get an electronic cigarette USB pass-through this is an electronic cigarette battery that has a USB cable attached allowing you to plug it in and vape it nonstop. Totally Wicked even has a 5 port electronic cigarette battery charger that allows you to charge 5 electronic cigarette batteries all at once!
Looking through all of these products that they offer can be quite confusing when trying to figure out just want you need to get started. Therefore below we have recommendations…
Recommended Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit:
TECC TITAN Black* (they have many colors) Full PCC Electronic Cigarette Kit – 69.99
Electronic Cigarette Kit consists of:
• 1 x Black Portable Cigarette Charger
• 1 x Black or White Titan Atomizer
• 1 x Black or White Titan Manual Battery
• 1 x USB Charger cable
• 1 x Mains Outlet USB Charger
• 1 x Car cigarette-lighter USB charger interface
• 5 x Cartridge: Tobacco High
• 3 x Cartridge: Tobacco Med, 1 x Low & 1 x Zero
• 1 x User manual
30ML (or any size really) Totally Wicked E-Liquid Bottle – 6.99 to 29.99
Totally Wicked Electronic Cigarette E-Liquid is a decent liquid and is available in over 30 flavors and 6 strengths of nicotine however it comes with a hefty price tag and they says its “lab grade” nicotine which actually does not mean its fit for human consumption as not all lab grade nicotine is pure. The Original Red Label Wicked juice come in 30ml fully CHIP and childproof bottles but it is now also available in 5ml and 10ml bottles. Totally Wicked’s Red Label original E-NI (electronic cigarette) e-liquid is available in over 30 different flavors ranging from the old favorites like Marlboro and Regular Tobacco to more exotic flavors such as Watermelon, Green Tea, Black tea, Rum, vanilla, strawberry and many more. Since Totally Wicked is unclear in regards to the purity of the nicotine that is used in the liquid we can not recommend it since for all we know it could be harmful and since it is not bound by US laws theres nothing we can do to find out.
Bottom line we think that Totally Wicked electronic cigarette is a bit overpriced and we are unsure in regards to their purity of the nicotine used therefore we recommend going with another brand such as FireBrand who also sells refillable electronic cigarettes just like Totally wicked ecigs and feel that do it at a better price.

We at Ecigsavings have decided that we are not going to give our opinion on this product or their customer service and will leave it to the customers of Eluma Electronic Cigarettes.
Why we will NOT promote Eluma Electronic Cigarettes.
We will however state that we are no longer affiliated with Eluma Ecigs and will not be affiliated with them anymore. Eluma sent a cease and desist letter stating we were in violation of their affiliate terms of service. Their affiliate TOS can be found here http://www.elumacigs.com/affiliate_terms_popup.php which we received by email stating the TOS had changed on 3/24/2011 at 1:50pm EST. After reviewing the new TOS we came across this part…
3.4 During the Term, you will not disparage Eluma, ElumaCigs.com or the Eluma product, or portray these in a derogatory or negative manner whether directly or indirectly. The content of your website will, at all times, be in good taste. You are solely responsible for the development, operation and maintenance of your website and will indemnify, defend and hold Eluma harmless from any claims arising out of or related to your website.
On 3/24/2011 I got the email above regarding the change in the TOS. I then got another email at 3:59pm on the same day (2 hours and 9 minutes later) and this one was a Cease and Desist letter from Eluma stating I was in violation of the TOS and asked that I remove all negative comments regarding Eluma and replace it with positive content or remove the review entirely otherwise futher legal actions will be taken.
We have decided that due to these demands that we will remove all Eluma product photos and will no longer promote Eluma electronic cigarettes but leave this up for others to submit their own reviews. We sent them a email stating that we do not agree with the new affiliate TOS as we are a honest review site and will not censor any customer complaints against the company as that goes directly against everything we are about and refuse to falsify reviews which not to mention would violate several FTC regulations.
Commenting on this review will remain open and UNFILTERED for discussions on Eluma Ecigs.

The Cigana electronic cigarette was relatively new company we heard about. I saw a few things about this company so I decided to give them a taste for this electronic cigarette review.
Cigana Electronic Cigarette Review
The Cigana electronic cigarette is following the new trend of the two part system so there is no fooling around with nicotine e-liquid or anything like that. The electronic cigarette atomizers are disposable so you get a new one with every cartridge you purchase which in turn keeps your vapor at its maximum.
If you want to get started with a portable electronic cigarette with Cigana it will run you $149.99 for the starter kit. The kit contains: 2 electronic cigarette batteries, 1 USB Charger, 1 wall adapter, 9 electronic cigarette cartridges with a new atomizer in each one and an instruction manual. This price is a bit high even if you take into account that every electronic cigarette cartridge you buy comes with a new atomizer the price is extremely higher than other competitors.
Another thing we were not fond of with the Cigana electronic cigarette was the price for their batteries. The battery replacement for the electronic cigarette was $49.99 which is VERY expensive! Most companies offer their batteries for as low as $15. We did not find anything special about the electronic cigarette batteries from Cigana. The battery life seemed to the be same as any other electronic cigarette we have tried. Another thing was the portable charging devices for their electronic cigarette was also another $49.99 and their site claims that it only charges the battery about 4 times. Most portable charging cases we have used give you tons of charges for your electronic cigarette battery before they run out of juice. There is also another portable charger on the site that claims it can charge cell phones and other portable devices including your electronic cigarette as well which ran $99.99 but did not say how many charges it would give and we were not about to purchase it to find out as the price is just way to high.
We found the Cigana electronic cigarette to be way to pricey for our liking and recommend checking out their competitors like the Smoke Stik electronic cigarette which uses the same two part design or try our best refillable e-cig the Firebrand electronic cigarette even though it works with a 3 part design it is still incredibly easy to use and all around one of our top companies.
DID YOU MEAN SMOKE STIK “Smoke Stick”?? Many people get these two companies confused. SmokeStik is currently working on the legal matters of Smoking Stick using the trademarks of their name and hopefully will succeed. Smoking Stick is rumored to be a scam which can be read more about below, however, SmokeStik is an excellent top 5 company and highly recommended by us and endorsed by many famous celebrities click here to read the SmokeStik review.
UPDATE: IT APPEARS THAT SMOKING STICK HAS FINALLY GONE OUT OF BUSINESS AS THEIR SITE IS NO LONGER UP AND RUNNING! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR REPLACEMENT CARTRIDGES AND SUCH YOU ARE GOING TO NEED TO START OVER WITH ANOTHER BRAND WE RECOMMEND THE ORIGINAL SMOKE STIK YOU SEE ABOVE THIS MESSAGE. THEY ARE THE ONES THAT SMOKING STICK TRIED TO COPY AND STEAL BUSINESS FROM IN THE FIRST PLACE. IT DOES SUCK HAVING TO BUY A NEW STARTER KIT AGAIN BUT SMOKE STIK IS VERY REPUTABLE AND IS NOTHING LIKE SMOKING STICK WAS SO YOU WILL BE MUCH HAPPIER WITH THEM.
Let me start this review by saying we DO NOT recommend Smoking Stick as your electronic cigarette provider. Through our testing we found their customer service to be practically nonexistent and not knowledgeable about their products. Smoking Stick’s electronic cigarette prices are also a quite high and given their customer service their e-cigs should be much less expensive than everyone else because it doesn’t seem that they have any staff to pay.
Before we ordered any electronic cigarettes we first reached out to the company in an effort to find out what they believe makes their electronic cigarettes stand out. When we first tried to contact them we did it via email and we actually got a response in just over a couple of hours. However, in the email we sent, we asked several different questions about their electronic cigarettes and the response we got was “Hi are you interested in our electronic cigarettes?”…
The first thought was just a simple wow is it that obvious. We decided to give them another chance as maybe they simply just didn’t understand our questions. We replied back and broke down the questions to their simplest form. We waited 72 business hours and never received a reply from Smoking Stick. We then sent another email asking why we never received a reply to our previous email and got an answer within less than an hour saying “I am sorry I have been really busy.” Smoking Stick could not answer these simple questions an example being if they make their own E-liquid that is used to fill their electronic cigarette cartridges and things like that.
We went to order their product and found that they have no selection for flavors what so ever. All they had to choose from were regular and menthol flavored electronic cigarette cartridges in 3 different strengths of nicotine, however, their menthol had no selection to the strength at all. You could only purchase the electronic cigarette cartridges in packs of 5 unless you are willing to sign up for their monthly refill program which is $40 a month and you get only 25 cartridges. Which makes each cartridge about 2$ a piece almost double the cost of their competitors.
The electronic cigarettes work just like SmokeStik electronic cigarette and BLU electronic cigarettes. They are a 3 part design just the electronic cigarette battery, the atomizer, and the e-cig cartridge. Smoking Stick’s starter kits start at $79.99 and go up from there. The carrying case for their e-cigarette is actually the charger as well so you can charge it anywhere you bring the case.
In closing we highly recommend that you DO NOT purchase the Smoking Stick electronic cigarettes. Smoking Stick’s customer service just isn’t up to par with their prices and we do not see this company lasting very long. They have limited electronic cigarette selections and nothing about Smoking Stick really stands out or makes them worth the money. If you are looking into Smoking Stick we would recommend looking into SmokeStik electronic cigarettes instead. Just read some of the customer reviews below and there wont be any doubt that the other companies are the better way to go.
Recent complaints from our customers that purchased the Smoking Stick electronic cigarette even against the recommendation of this website has forced us to disable all links to their site. Smoking Stick is scamming people with their free electronic cigarette offer and we do not condone such behavior!
