Volcano has been endorsed by Rush Limbaugh on his radio show, the audio clips can be located on the volcano ecigs website – where Rush Limbaugh discusses things about Volcano specifically and also talks about why electronic cigarettes are such a great idea.

Overall Ratings:

Our personal Volcano ECig Review, when we tested it had a knock out performance.  The amount of vapor that we got from each draw was incredible.  Volcano ecigs come in a variety of shapes and sizes.  The Inferno ecig is the largest one available and it resembles a “magic marker” size and shape.  Volcano also offers other styles, that are more closely related to the look and appeal of an actual cigarette.  This style is the one that is most preferred by our consumer panel, however – our 40 member panel was ecstatic over the amount and quality of the vapor that they get from the Inferno battery style Volcano ecig kits.

We have based this review on the smaller batteries model, since this was the preferred reason for us to review the Volcano brand, as submitted by our consumer panel committee in regarding the best e cigarette.

Cartomizers and Refills:

Strengths

First we’ll discuss the nicotine strength levels for Volcano ecigs.  Volcano ecigs offers a Zero nicotine level cartomizer, which includes 0% nicotine.  They also offer a Lights strength which contains 8mg of nicotine that is the equivalent to a Light traditional cigarette.  The highest level offered is the Full Flavored, which contains 16mg of nicotine.  Just like almost all other electronic cigarette brands, each cartomizer contains only nicotine, propylene glycol and flavoring.  The propylene glycol is a humectant that is common in foods and food coloring and has been considered safe by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Flavors

Volcano ecigs come in a variety of flavor options, such as Regular Tobacco, Menthol, Cherry, Lava, Pineapple Punch, Kona Coffee, Milk Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, Coocoo Coconut, Waikiki Watermelon, and Blueberry Punch.  Volcano also offers blank cartridges that can easily be filled with any of the juices that Volcano ecigs offers.  My suggestion, find two or more blends that you really like and mix them together.

Longevity

Each cartomizer seems to last right about the same as a pack of traditional cigarettes.  So if you are a one pack a day smoker, then each refill should last you right about one day.  Volcano ecigs sell their cartomizers (refills) in packs of five, so if you are a pack-a-day smoker, then a pack of volcano refills should last you right around five (5) days or so.

Quality

The quality that I personally experienced from the Volcano ecig was quite amazing, and refreshing.  The Inferno – is a bit bulky to hit from, but the quality of the refills was amazing.  The flavoring was not too stout and not too weak, and the level of nicotine seemed perfect.  Personally – the Volcano Inferno is one of best e cigarette because it just tastes so good.  The bulkiness of the product is a bit of a turn off for me though, and I really like their Volcano and Magma styles better, but I think it sacrifices a bit from the quality of the Inferno.

Prices

Volcano Cartridges: $2.99 – $3.49 per pack, each pack contains 5 refill cartridges which is equal to 5 packs of cigarettes.

Magma Cartridges:  $2.99 – $3.49 per pack, each pack contains 5 refill cartridges which is equal to 5 packs of cigarettes.

Inferno Catridges: $9.99 – $11.99 per pack, each pack contains 5 pre-filled cartidges which equal to 5 packs of traditional cigarettes.

Batteries

Charge Longevity

The battery charge of the inferno is absolutely amazing.  When we tested it I actually got 18 hours of continuous use out of the Inferno style battery.  I simply have never had a battery of any ecig brand last me that long through continuous use throughout a day, and I usually find myself switching out batteries at least twice from all other brands of electronic cigarettes.  The smaller Inferno battery when tested, lasted me about 9 hours before it needed charging.  This is still amazing, but more realistic against competitor brands.  The Magma battery lasted me about 4 hours, and the Volcano battery lasted me around 2 hours.

With the Volcano ecig batteries, you will always know when your battery needs to be recharged because the LED indicator light on the Magma and Volcano models will flash while you take a draw from the ecig, and the electronic cigarette will not produce and vapor at all.  On both the Inferno models the results are the same, only the LED light location is on the button that activates the device.
