White Cloud e-cigarettes look good – you can’t deny that. However, does the vapor live up to the appearance? What about the price? Is White Cloud too expensive or just right? We decided that it was time to find out more and delve into the world of White Cloud cigarettes for our next e-cig review.
There are a whopping five starter kits that you can pick from with White Cloud and this automatically earns them brownie points!
- Cirrus 2 Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit at $49.95
- Cirrus 3 Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit at $63.96
- Cirrus Variety Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit at $87.96
- Cirrus 3X Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit at $95.96
- Phantom Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit at $159.96
Clearly the Phantom Kit is designed for men with its matte black exterior and manly design about it. It would seem that you don’t get an awful lot of bang for your buck with this brand either – the kits themselves seem sparse in comparison to other e-cigarette brands and we weren’t all that impressed. The Cirrus 3 Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit, for example, costs a rather hefty $63.96 and only gives you 3 batteries, USB charger, quid USB charger and five cartridges. There are other brands that offer more for less and it might be worth shopping around.
The look is almost Apple-inspired with the sleek white contours and bright blue color effects. They have recently reduced their prices too, which bodes well for White Cloud – they are clearly listening to their customers. At the same time though, they could do with dropping them a little further to keep in touch with the other bigger and better brands.
A spare battery will set you back anywhere from $19.95 to $29.95, depending on the length and style of the battery and we have noticed that they don’t seem to offer manual options – something that didn’t go down well with our team. Some of us love that button and some of us hate it, but we sure don’t like it when a company doesn’t offer us a button!
The battery is a good battery and holds a decent amount of battery life but we often found that the inhale was slightly delayed – we had to puff for a few seconds before anything started happening. We also found that the vapor give off wasn’t as strong or as much as that offered by the likes of EverSmoke either. Not bad, but not good either.
White Cloud boasts that their e-cig batteries will last, on average, five times more than the average e-cig offered by other brands and although we agreed it did last longer, the statement that it could last up to five times more seemed a little farfetched. It definitely didn’t last that long.
Flavors & Cartridges
White Cloud offer so many flavors that we didn’t really know where to begin. They certainly offer more than most companies out there:
- Moscow Mule
- Lime & Coconut
- Bad Apple
- Peach Pit
- Bora Bora
You will also find four strength options available:
- Double Extra
- Ultra Light
- Nicotine Free
For flavors and strengths, White Cloud definitely rules. What it lacks in vapor, it makes up for in taste!
At the very best, the warranty offered by White Cloud was at least honest. You only get a measly 6 month warranty. The good news is that they don’t pretend it’s a lifetime warranty with lots of terms and conditions…
It would appear that you would void your warranty if you were to use e-liquid in your cartridges rather than using White Cloud cartridges so you will need to give this some thought before you make your final decision on which is the best e-cigarette to buy. You can buy an extended warranty for your e-cigs but this will cost you.
There were some varied accessories for White Cloud but we did find that they were fairly pricey and there wasn’t a great selection of stuff. They do regularly offer coupon codes which could bring the price down, but paying full whack for these will get costly over time.
You also have the option for various battery colors which we did like – sometimes we like to switch things up!
In short, we felt that White Cloud go off to a great start but went downhill from there. The product looked good and the flavors were varied but they didn’t last long, the battery certainly didn’t live up to its “five times longer” promise, and everything was just a bit too expensive for our liking.
When you add to this that the e-cig didn’t produce enough vapor for our tastes and not all flavors were available in all nicotine levels and you will find that more and more flaws are poking through with this brand of e-cig. They offer the smallest battery in size but no manual option, and with the highest nicotine strengths, you might find that it is a bit too strong.
