The Luci electronic cigarette is a good overall product offering four flavors and three nicotine levels. I have smoked it many times and enjoy using it. Luci is a reputable company shipping from the US with telephone and email support. The Luci electronic cigarette has a three piece open cartridge design with a separate atomizer. The open cartridges can sometimes be messy if you are not careful, however if you are inclined to do so, and on a budget they can be easily refilled with inexpensive e-liquid. The Luci has a unique feature in its “Smart Chip” that will actually shut the device down for a short period if the chip determines too much nicotine is being delivered, I do not know of another product that offers this feature.
Here is what came in my starter kit:
- 2 batteries
- 1 Atomizer
- 5 Cartridges
- 110v Cord for Charger
The Luci has a decent smoke volume for this type of design. As long as you clean and replace your atomizer regularly, and make sure the open cartridges do not dry out you will not have any problems.
Once you get the hang of it the Luci is a breeze to use. It features a three piece design; the battery, the atomizer, and the cartridge. Once assembled you simply smoke the Luci like a regular cigarette. Below is a diagram of how the pieces go together:
My original order shipped within two days. I have also placed several orders for refill cartridges that have all shipped within two days of being placed. They have a 30 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee on starter kits only, and they charge a $35 restocking fee.
The Luci’s 3 piece open cartridge design was the big sticking point for me for a few reasons. With something like an electronic cigarette, the simpler the better. The separate atomizer needs to be maintained and replaced from time to time; this is another part you must order from Luci in addition to the refill cartridges. The open cartridge design, while allowing refills, can be very messy if you are not careful. The benefit of the three piece electronic cigarette design is that the cartridges are less expensive because they do not contain an atomizer, and they are easier to refill if you choose to do so. The charger with separate power cord is also bulky and unnecessary, if the guys from Luci are reading this, make it just plug right into the wall without the mess of the 4 foot cord!
