About a week ago, I received an E-Lites E200 e-cigarette from the folks over at E-Lites. E-Lites is a UK-based electronic cigarette retailer, which has also recently been expanding into American markets. The kit I will be reviewing today is the E-Lites E200, which comes with the following accessories:
- 1 E-Lites G9 Battery (Green LED)
- 5 Tobacco flavored nicotine cartridges
- 1 Sturdy Case with built-in USB charger
The E-Lites brand of e-cigarettes uses G9 battery technology, which according to them
utilises the strongest, highest grade Li-Ion composition to guarantee a long, stable and reliable
battery life. This ‘Diamond Core’ allows for over 300 genuine re-charges without noticeable ‘user time’ degradation and is encased in a strong, high grade rubber protective surround (like a G-Shock watch) to guard against accidental drops, knocks and bumps.
So far, I have found that the E-Lites battery lasts quite long for its compact size. I consider myself to be a heavy vaper, and I can get an entire day of usage out of a single charge. I also find that the
battery produces enough power to create quite a significant throat hit, and mimics the feeling of an actual cigarette quite well. The battery is also automatic, and I prefer automatic batteries over manual ones, due to the advantage of being able to vape hands-free. The battery has also outperformed my Joye 510 battery, lasting for much longer under a single charge. Normally I can only get about 3/4 of a day out of my Joye 510 battery under heavy vaping conditions.
The battery itself is guaranteed under a comprehensive, 6 months warranty, so if anything goes wrong with it during this period, you will receive a replacement free of charge. This warranty is nice, because in my experience, if anything is going to fail with the battery, it will likely be within the first few months of purchase.
The cartomizers have been of a consistent and high quality, and the 8 that I have tried have all functioned perfectly, bringing me a consistent vaping experience. I really
enjoyed the tobacco flavored cartridges, which had a very nice balance which wasn’t to sweet or too bitter. The menthol was also tasty, but not as tasty as Unsmoke’s Cool, which reminds me of Camel Crush cigarettes.
One thing I really enjoyed about the E-Lites e-cigarette is the pack it comes with. Not only does the pack serve as a classy looking case, but it also doubles as a charger for the battery, which screws into the case. My only wish for the pack is that it would be able to charge the battery on the go like the 510 Smart PCC does.
Overall, the E-Lites E200 is a great e-cigarette for those who want something that truly resembles a real smoking experience. The small battery size, great flavor, and elegant case combine together to provide a lasting vaping experience!
