Cigees are a relatively new UK based e-cigarette company that has grown at an incredible rate making them a top 5 e-cig brand in the UK and prompting their recent move to a new fulfilment centre. The rapid growth is largely due to their heavily discounted prices (particularly their trial sets which are currently £6) so I thought it was time to take a closer look at what they had to offer.
Product wise Cigees have all bases covered with loads of different kits, batteries, chargers and cartomisers to choose from. They offer a particularly good selection of starter packs which cater for the casual to the heavier e-cig user, for example the £12 starter kit is great to get you started but for £48 you can get a massive kit equivalent to 200 normal cigarettes, it comes with 3 batteries and 12 cartomiser refills (5 menthol and 7 tobacco) plus you get 4 chargers (2 USB, 1 mains and 1 for the car) as well as a pouch and a case so all in all you would be fully covered going forward in terms of heavy use particularly with the 3 batteries, therefore the more advanced kit is well worth considering from the get go. Cigees do a higher end ‘Majestic’ e-cigarette which looks really cool in all black, they have larger batteries (1100 mah) and large cartomisers so are great for the more serious user. I would of liked a few more flavours for a bit of variety but as most people will be looking for the fairly standard tobacco and menthol varieties this shouldn’t be too much of an issue.
Quality wise all Cigees products seem to be top drawer, the e-cigarettes look and feel like the real thing and everything about them from the packaging to the e-cig itself looks and feels classy you really need to get your hands on them yourself to appreciate this, even the packaging looks and feels like a real cigarette packet with the flip back lid. Battery life is very good and charge times are relatively quick (about 2hrs). The e-cigs themselves taste great (very similar to a real cigarette) and they produce a realistic hit along with a decent amount of smoke without leaving the room engulfed, they have a really smooth taste and they don’t leave you with that dreaded dry throat.
Price wise Cigees come up trumps as you would expect from a firm supplying their own products direct and as such they have some of the best value e-cigarette products anywhere in the UK, for example you can get a starter pack containing 1 rechargeable 280mah battery, 2 high strength 16mg tobacco flavour cartomisers and a USB charger for just £12, they even throw in a free gift (pouch and lanyard). I could reel off great deals from Cigees all day but the best bet is to check out their website as they always seem to have deals on.
The Customer Service
I was pleasantly surprised at the contact options and hours of operation considering they are quite a new e-cig firm. You can contact them via a web form on their website or via email alternatively you can phone them (9AM – 4PM Mondays to Fridays), fairly standard stuff but good to know none the less.
Cigees ship worldwide and the delivery options are great with next day delivery (Royal Mail Special Delivery) available for UK purchases made before 12 noon and same day dispatch for all orders made by 4PM (including overseas). Shipping is pretty reasonable (usually around £4-8) but they currently offer free delivery for all UK customers on orders over £50 which is really handy.
Cigees offer a 30 day money back guarantee which is always nice for peace of mind.
On the whole I would highly recommend Cigees as they offer arguably the best e-cigarettes on the market at great prices with great service. The only downside is the lack of flavours but for most this will not be an issue as tobacco and menthol will be the choice for the majority I suspect and those flavours are done very well indeed.
