Ezee E-Cigs Cigalikes Review – Rechargeables, Disposables, and an Energy Vape

I was contacted by the folks over at Ezee E-Cigarettes to review their cigalike products. Ezee E-Cigarettes are a small, family-owned e-cig producer in Denmark who make both disposable and rechargeable cigalike products.

I chose to review their products for a few reasons

  1. I think cigalikes are still good products for some people
  2. I like their brand messaging and how they clearly target their products to adults
  3. As a teen of the 90’s, I was a huge fan of Eazy-E, even if that’s not really how Ezee E-Cigarettes got their name. 😉

So they sent me a bunch of stuff to review, so let’s take a look.

Steepd S1 Quit Kit Review

The S1 Quit Kit was sent to me for review from SteepdVapeCo out of the UK. Right now it’s only sold in the UK, but they do have plans to bring it to the U.S. So if you’ve never heard of Steepd before, and you live in the UK, check them out.

They also have some of the best e-liquid I’ve ever had (see the links for my reviews at the bottom of this page). Really unique flavors too.

But this review isn’t about e-liquid, it’s about their new device, the S1 Quit Kit.

It’s a Little Funny Looking

As with anything in the vape industry, looks are subjective. Personally, I’m not a fan of the shape of the Augvape AIO. It’s small and comfortable to hold, but it just a little funny looking to me. But that’s just my opinion.

It’s 4.6 inches tall and close to an inch wide, so it’s pretty compact and easy to carry around.

To turn on the Augvape AIO, press the firing button four times fast.

The LED Light Is In a Strange Place

The LED is on the opposite side of the button, which I think can be a con for some people. If you fire with your thumb, you’ll be able to see the LED light while you’re vaping, but you won’t if you fire with your index finger. And when you turn the device on or off, you won’t be able see the LED light to confirm that it’s on or off without turning it around really fast to catch the light. That’s been pretty annoying in my experience.

There are two colors on the LED. Blue tells you that it has a good charge and red tells you that battery is nearly dead.

Mouthpiece

The drip tip is a standard 510 drip tip, so you can use your own if you want. There’s nothing special about the included tip, but it’s comfortable to use, so I have no complaints. That fits right into the top cap.

The Super Loose Airflow Control Ring

The top cap screws into the top of the device. This has your airflow control ring which moves left to right and stops on either side. It’s reaalllly loose, so you’ll have to adjust it every time it comes out of your pocket. It’s so loose that you might even have to adjust it in-between hits. That’s a really big con of the device.

Aside from the looseness, the adjustable airflow works well. Wide open and you get a pretty loose mouth to lung or a restricted lung draw. And of course you can shut it down if you want a really tight draw. I personally find that I like it set all the way down to where I can barely tell that it’s open. The restriction is perfect for me and works great for using high-nicotine e-juice.

The bottom of the top cap holds the pre-built coil.

Just screw the coil head on and that’s it. There is a little o-ring between the coil and chimney section to prevent leaking.

Great Flavor From the Coils

The kit comes with two 0.6 ohm coil-heads. The coils are made of mesh, so they’re designed for flavor. And since these are mesh coils, the AIO fires fast. You can get a really satisfying hit every time.

I’ve found that they perform really well and the flavor is pretty good. They fire fast and the coils seem to last quite a while too.

They cost about $9.99 for a pack of five coils, so coils are pretty affordable too.

Filling and Cleaning The Tank

Since this is an all-in-one setup, the tank is built into the device. All you need to do is unscrew the top cap and add your e-juice.

There is a little line on the glass that shows you how far you can fill it.

On a new coil, you’ll want to add a little e-juice to prime it and then you’ll want to let it sit for a couple of minutes so that the wick gets saturated.

You can see how much e-juice is in the tank from the little windows on both sides of the device and there are lines showing you the max level to fill. Those are a little hard to see depending on the lighting. so that kind of sucks. The windows also don’t reach all the way to the bottom of the tank, so you can’t see how low the e-juice is when it starts to get really low.

If you want to clean the AIO, you’ll need to be really careful not to get water into the rest of the device. What I do is take the top cap off and fill the tank with water from the sink. I rinse it out a few times and then wipe it down with a paper towel. If you don’t want to risk getting the device wet, you could also use a wet paper towel or a cotton swab.

Slow Charging Battery, But It’s Big!

The battery inside the AIO is a non-removable 1500mAh battery, so that’s pretty big. You should have no problems using this for at least a couple of days before needing to recharge it. It takes about 3 hours to fully charge a dead battery, so I would suggest just always making sure the battery is topped off before leaving the house.

It charges with the included USB cable and you can’t vape on it while it’s charging, so no passthrough functionality here.

Safety Features

  • Low battery voltage protection (3.3v)
  • Atomizer short circuit protection (< 0.1 ohm)
  • Output over current protection
  • 5s cutoff time

The 5 second cutoff time is interesting, because that’s a pretty short cutoff. I wonder why they made it so short. Maybe to prevent the coil. I think that cutoff is fine for people using high-nicotine e-juice and tight draw airflow, but if you like the airflow open and long draws, 5 seconds might not be enough for you.

It’s My Go-To Tight Draw Device

The Augvape AIO has been one of my favorite tight-draw devices, just because it performs so well. I get great hits, the airflow is nice and smooth, and the flavor is very good. Most of the cons I’ve mentioned are small enough that it doesn’t really bother, BUT that loose airflow control ring really borders that line. That airflow control ring is really truly annoying. Even still, I find myself constantly grabbing this device over others, so I really enjoy using it.

I’ve seen it online for around $20-$30. Check out some of the sites selling it below (affiliates).
