Not bad—except for the leaking!
I’ve been vaping with a regular mod for a few yrs now. Went into the vape shop recently and saw the staff using these. I trust their recommendations and it wasn’t too expensive, so I bought one to use in addition to my mod, for times when I’d prefer to be inconspicuous, which the STLTH is perfect for. The only issue I’m having is that the juice leaks into my mouth if I’m laying down or leaning back when I draw on it. To avoid this unpleasantness, I have to make sure the bottom of the unit is exactly level with or lower than the tip, which is somewhat inconvenient at times. When reading the other comments, I see that I am far from the only one experiencing this problem. One would think the manufacturer would’ve fixed it by now (I just bought it a couple of days ago). Aside from that, a few small points: the battery doesn’t last long at all. I’m not a heavy user, but still have to charge twice a day; would be nice to have the same battery level check as the Juul, which is done by tapping the unit in the same way that one ashes a cigarette; adding some more flavors to choose from would also make it more appealing (other than the ‘Tobacco Blend’, they’re all ‘fruity’ flavored, with no ‘baked goods’ flavors available). If not for the leaking issue, I would have given 4 stars. If the smaller points were also handled, this would be a perfect, 5 star review. That being said, I would still recommend the STLTH to anyone who is trying to quit smoking. Over the years, I’ve pretty much tried them all and the STLTH is the closest thing I’ve experienced to a real cigarette (I smoked heavily for 27 years, before quitting by switching to vaping 4 years ago. I have gradually lessened my nicotine level and haven’t touched, nor even craved a cigarette since that day). Not only might it save you from dying a slow, painful death in the form of lung cancer, but it will save you a significant amount of money, too. The unit itself is only $20. The nicotine pods are $15 for a 3-pack ($5 each). One pod will last a heavy smoker 3-4 days. You can do the rest of the math on your own. Even if you’re smoking those cheap, disgusting, garbage cigarettes from the reservations, the STLTH will still cost you less in the long run. How much is a longer, healthier life worth to you? An indefinite number of years to spend with your family and loved ones, that you may not have had otherwise? Is it worth the price of a starter kit to—at the very least—give it a try? If the answer is yes, what are you waiting for? If it’s no—well, that’s just sad.
