South Beach Smoke, in terms of both the aesthetic and usability seems to be very much about fun and enjoyment. Devices tend to be easy to use and high in quality, giving the user a pleasurable and stress-free overall experience. When you first take their devices out of the box, you really are struck by the sleek and stylish design and they look as though they will be a true pleasure to use. This is a bit of a contrast to the packaging, which looks a trifle ordinary and even fragile by comparison.
South Beach Smoke E-Liquid Flavors
Customers of both e-liquids and cartomizer have a wide range of flavours to choose from, and personal mixing of flavours is definitely encouraged, although there are plenty of ready-made flavours which come in 30ml bottles. Nicotine strength range from 0mg/ml to 24mg/ml. A nice addition is that you can also select the flavour strength. If you prefer to blend your e-liquid to taste, you can choose the flavours you want and the relatives strengths. In every 30ml bottle, choose up to 3 flavours and 3 shots.
The flavours are pretty good, although not perhaps perfect. For those missing regular smokes, give Classic Tobacco a try. In terms of cartridge flavours, South Beach Smoke’s Grape Hookah is widely recommended. In general, compared to other companies, South Beach has a very good range of cartridge flavours.
South Beach Smoke Vapor production
All of South Beach smoke’s devices are notable for the fact that none require any initial drags from the user to get the vapour flowing. Even the company’s smallest device, The Delux, will allow you to Vape immediately. The amount of mist is good, but not remarkable, however, it will give you a throat hit.
South Beach Smoke’s The Air device will not yield huge vapour production-nor a significant throat hit- on account of its small 350mAh battery and tank capacity of just 1ml. However, the average smoker will probably be fine with both the vapour yield and throat hit.
Ease of Use
Generally, very light and easy to hold, and extremely comfortable. Also make you feel pretty trendy, due to the super-stylish designs.
For those looking for a much more powerful throat hit and significant vapour production, The Thunder is sure to satisfy, being South Beach Smoke’s most powerful device. If you’re not looking for anything quite so powerful but still want to get up there with vape production and throat hit, then look to The Curve. It delivers notably on both counts without being as far on the front foot as The Thunder.
Battery & Charging
The South Beach Smoke Deluxe Standard Battery will typically last the average user for roughly half a day, whereas the high-capacity battery will stretch to the whole day for the average smoker. One extra nice feature that is greatly appreciated, especially by a former smoker, is that the device’s crystal tip glows red with every drag you take and it also gives a indication when the battery is running low. On the cig-a-like device, the battery comes with an option allowing the user to go button-activated, which is a really nice touch and pretty rare among the small devices on the market. In terms of battery life, The Curve’s standard 650mAh battery will give the average user an entire day’s worth of vaping. If you are a heavier smoker, you’ll probably find that it will last for half a day before you need to recharge.
The Thunder works with a variable voltage battery, which is button controlled, giving the user the option to change the voltage from 3.7 volts to 4.2 volts, with a maximum of 4.8 volts.
South Beach Smoke’s Air Starter Kit has a small 350mAh battery, which will yield perhaps only 4 hours worth of vaping, but this is not all that surprising when you consider how small the device is. As you might imagine, vapour production is not among the heavy hitters, given the size and battery power. It’s probably true to say that the Air was designed more for easy of use and discretion than duration of use and it is still an excellent unit for those looking to switch up from ci-a-likes to a more serious pen.
Customers can find plenty of replaceable pieces for their devices, including batteries in a range of sizes in a choice of manual button operated or automatic. There are also replacement chargers and tanks as well as a portable charger case-which goes well with the more upscale devices-which has spaces for additional cartomizers and batteries. It features an LED screen which displays the outstanding battery life.
South Beach Smoke Starter Kits
First is the Deluxe Starter Kit, which is designed for those who are looking to change from regular cigs to e-cigs. You’ll get 1 deluxe standard battery, 1 high-capacity battery, a portable wall charger, a USB charging adapter, and 10 large nicotine atomizers, which are the equivalent of up to 16 packs of cigarettes.
Next, the Deluxe Plus Starter Kit is basically what you get with the Deluxe, only with an additional carry case. Their Deluxe Ultimate Starter Kit is one of South Beach Smoke’s most popular kits, and comes with the same kit as the Deluxe Plus, as well as both manual and automatic batteries, universal car adapter, a lanyard and more cartomizers-20 of them, which equates to up to 32 packs of cigarettes.
- Deluxe Starter kit: $39.99
- Deluxe Plus Starter Kit: $59.99
- Deluxe Ultimate Starter Kit: $109.99
- They also have a re-usable express kit, which costs $21.99
Design and Packaging
South Beach Smoke’s designs clearly evoke the company’s home, which is Miami. The company’s cig-a-like device closely mimics the traditional cigarette, in the form of a white battery and yellow cartomizer.
The company’s Curve device is exactly as described, with a curved form when assembled which is unique to such a device. The sculpting makes the pen stylish and elegant and quite unlike the cumbersomeness often seen in other vape pens.
The Storm is somewhat of a contrast, with a much more square and unwieldy design. What’s nice, though, is the contrast between the body’s bulk and the slenderness of the mouthpiece. It is available in 7 different colours, with customers having the option of choosing a different colour battery and tank.
Shipping & Warranty
South Beach Smoke customers can enjoy a 30-day money back guarantee-valid on all products except cartridges. The company also offers a Home Delivery Program, which allow members to replace any fault product on the program’s lifetime replacement warranty, which applies to every item with the exception of the Air device and all Air accessories. South Beach Smoke offers free shipping for orders over $100.
South Beach Smoke is now offering a fast shipping to Australia, with 2-4 days transit time door to door!
Generally, a fun and satisfying experience. Vapor production and throat hits are typically good, although the flavors could do with a bit of an overhaul and improvement. Generally, though, satisfying and enjoyable.
