Ego-T e cigarette (Ecig) review

Published: 7th Apr 2012

The Best Electronic Cigarette

This is my review of the Ego-T purchased from www.liberty-flights.co.uk. Please check my video review for a more in depth look. 

Now first thing to mention is that the Liberty Flights website certainly isn't one of the most aesthetically pleasing sites around but nevertheless, it was easy enough to navigate around and has some good product information to peruse through. It also has it's own forum which looked pretty busy and some useful features such That said the customer service was really good. I made a slight error in my purchasing journey regarding entering my address and within minutes I had received an email explaining my mistake and it was rectified immediately. I purchased the black 650mah Ego-T, but you do have the option of different colours (black, white and steel) as well as a 950mah battery kit.

In terms of the delivery time, it took 2 days to arrive, so they didn't hang around.

Presentation box / packaging

The presentation box the Ego-T comes is elegant in design, long, thin and made of black cardboard which reminded me of something like a parker pen would be displayed in. Standard opening process via the front utilising a hinge action. Inside the box in coated in a velour trim.

Included in the box are the following:

  • 2 batteries (650 or 950mah)
  • 2 Ego T atomizers
  • 5 cartridges (pre-filled with 18mg Tobacco e-liquid)
  • 1 USB charger
  • Instructions
  • Smoking card

“The Ego is good, but not as good as the Jacvapour Vgo or Liberro Vea”

Battery

The battery for the Ego-T is charged by simply screwing it into the USB charger which is then plugged into your computer. I was getting about a 7 hours out of the battery which is pretty much in line with what the technical information states. The battery took about 2.5hrs to charge which is relatively average. 

 

Switch (responsiveness)

The Ego-T is activated by a manual button which you press when youi take draw. When taking a draw the switch worked really well and activated immediately. Since doing the review, I have been told you can disable the battery by clicking the button 5 times. A useful feature when you carrying it in your pocket, so it doesn't activate.

 

Vaping experience

The device itself is assembled by pushing the plastic cartridge into the cone shaped atomizer, which in turn then screws into the battery. Once built, it looks sweet. Nice and chunky and the liberty flights logo on the atomizer looks good too. In terms of length it measured 125mm with a 50mm cartomizer attached.

The end of the battery is silver and has a 510 thread. Beneath that is the button which requires pressing to activate the battery. 

Another element I quite like is how the cartridges are see through, so you can see exactly how much e-liquid is left. The cartridges are re-fillable which is done by simply removing a little plastic cap on the end, and she is good to go for dripping in your e-liquid. They hold about 1.2ml of e-liquid.

In terms of vaping performance, I was impressed. The manual button required to activate it felt quite natural when using and didn't annoy me. It provided alot of vapour, without much effort, delivered a smooth consistency and had a nice feeling on the throat. The only negative I could say, was that the atomizer did get a little hot but nothing particularly uncomfortable.

Im must say though, the performance did not quite reach the heights of the Jacvapour Vgo2 or the Liberro Johnson Creek Vea.

The Ego-t performed well with a good switch and lasting battery, however it doesn't perform aswell as either the Jacvapour Vgo2 or Liberro Johnson Creek Vea".

Nice review, very thorough! I just ordered one so fingers crossed it will only be two days like yours. Not bad with the discount either!

I love the ego style batteries! I have a twist and a lavatube ad they have been put into storage coz the ego standard batteries are perfect size (900mAh) in length, easy to use and you can fit anything onto it without the use of adapter. I completely agree with the liberty flights site, it’s a little all over the place but their product range more than makes up for it. I was never a fan of the tank atomisers though as its a bit faffy to change flavours without the taste of the last flavour. Nice review though. It’s definitely a recommended starter kit for those who want a longer battery life then the standard size cigarette lookalikes.

Great e cig, far better than the traditional ones with the dispoable cartomiser tips. I would highly recommend this kind of e cig for anyone who has not enjoyed their vape experience so far. With it I have managed to stop smoking cigarettes for the last week, and I actually prefer it to real cigs now. The advantage over disposables is that you can mix your own liquid and or buy different flavours, which is good since i rapidly discovered i preferred none tobacco tasting e liquids. highly recommended for the new vaper.
