Because of the nature of this product, my usual evaluation format will not be used. This will just be a brief informational page with three photographs, three spectrographic analyses, and a rather large instructional video on it.

This product tastes kind of {vulgar term for caca}ty -- it has a "burning molasses" flavour to it.

To use your brand spanken new (or corroded old) iSMěK E-Cigarrette (if my description of the, "burning molasses" flavor doesn't dissuade you first) , just remove that plastic thing off the end and remove the very small plastic 'tab' from the side of the unit.

Put the filter-end (the end with the white plastic disc with a hole in it) in your mouth, give it a few short "puffs", then you can "smoke" it as you might smoke a traditional cigarrette. A purple "cherry" on the end brightens as you take a drag, then dims out to nothing when you stop.

There are no switches to fuss with or forget; the act of drawing air into it by sucking on the end triggers an air movement-sensitive momentary switch inside. This activates the unit only while you are taking a drag and automatically deactivates it when you stop sucking.

Each iSMěK lasts approx. 2 packages (~40 regular cigarrettes), then you throw it in the garbage can -- yes, this is the disposable version. iSMěK makes a rechargeable version as well, so you need only discard the "filter" portion (this is the part that contains the nicotine) every now and again.
