Cigavette is a company that recently came under my radar when the owner introduced himself via email and asked if I would be interested in reviewing some of their products. I hadn’t heard of the company previously, but when I tried the Cuvana disposable e-cigar, I was impressed. The Cuvana had some nice vapor production and a taste that strongly resembled pipe tobacco. After hundreds of puffs, it showed no sign of decreasing vapor volume. So, that was a very positive first impression. The other thing included in my Cigavette review kit was the company’s e-cigarette starter pack.

About the Cigavette E-Cigarette

The Cigavette Starter Pack is an introductory e-cigarette package that’s currently being sold in a special bundle that includes one battery, a USB charger and seven refill cartridges for $29.99. With the coupon codeĀ edripping, you can buy the package for $23.99. Refill cartridges are available in three tobacco flavors as well as a mint/menthol flavor and cost $14.95 per five-pack. Quantity discounts are also available. Cigavette sells a KR-808 e-cigarette, putting it in the same category as products such as V2 Cigs, Green Smoke and the Halo G6. Fully assembled, it’s a bit longer than a “100s” cigarette. Cigavette also has larger e-cigarette kits available, priced up to $129.95. The Starter Pack is intended to be a low-cost e-cigarette kit for people who are curious about e-cigarettes but aren’t ready to spend the money on a complete kit.

Even if you’ve never used an e-cigarette previously, getting started with the Cigavette e-cigarette should be fairly self-explanatory. Inside the main pack, you’ll find the Cigavette battery along with a USB charger and two refill cartridges. You can charge the battery by connecting it to the USB charger and connecting the charger to a USB port; you should do this before using the Cigavette for the first time. When the battery is charged, remove it from the USB port and connect one of the cartridges. The battery is fully automatic, so you need only puff on it to create vapor.

Cigavette Starter Pack Review

Using the Cigavette, I found the battery slightly less sensitive than some of the other KR-808 batteries I’ve used. When I puffed, in other words, I got a little bit of air in my mouth before I began to taste the vapor. You can get around this problem by taking a “primer puff” — take a short puff to engage the heating element in the cartridge, exhale and puff again. This increases the vapor production quite a bit.

I found the flavor of the Tobacco cartridge to be quite sweet and slightly reminiscent of tobacco, though definitely not as close to the real thing as the company’s Cuvana e-cigar. The vapor production was average for an e-cigarette of the Cigavette’s size, as long as the element was pre-heated.

Cigavette E-Cigarette: The Bottom Line

Overall, I like the Cigavette e-cigarette at the $23.99 price point. It’s priced a bit higher than the Envy NirVana — which has slightly poorer battery life — but is right in line with most other companies’ basic starter kits. My only worry is that Cigavette’s special offer won’t last forever; normally, the Cigavette Starter Pack costs $29.99 and only includes two cartridges. At that price, I’d find it difficult to recommend as those two cartridges would only last a committed smoker about two days at the most.
