I stopped smoking cigarettes on 16 March 2013 and haven't had a 'real' cigarette since. I know that I couldn't have done this without the Zebra. I would recommend this healthier way of smoking to anyone. I can even smoke in the car, or anywhere, without ending up smelling like a filthy ashtray! Thanks Zebra!
been smoking since i was 14 now 49 tried other e brands but this one is far the best.
good value for money without loosing on the quality.
stopped smoking now just enjoying my zebra which is beneficial to my health[ as i suffer with nerves and anxiety} without the inherent dangers of normal fags.
excellent remedial service when anything has gone wrong and to be fair there is always going to be issues with any product or service it is how problems are dealt with and in this case well done the zebra team.
this was my first order from zebra and so far am not impressed.
i order the premium starter pack and 2 pack of refills and after waiting 13 days
the packet arrived but only contained the 2 packs of refills and a cigarette case (part of the premium pack) but NO e-cig, batteries or charger.
I have emailed them and am awaiting a reply (have to wait because of Easter)
As i say am not impressed. i will update review if and when i get a satisfactory reply
I tried a number of different e-cigs before settling on a Zebra. For me it's by far the best product, and the best value. I'm looking forward to trying their new zero nicotine cartridges, as I'm sure that will help put the social smoking that I've been doing to date behind me for good. The one gripe I have with the company is their service - it takes far too long for the re-order cartridges to arrive - on average four days, when everything is going right. On two occasions now though, my orders haven't turned up at all, due to problems with their distribution systems. Although I've always had an apology (this time by email) I don't think it's good to have to wait 10 working days before they will recognise that an order has gone missing. If they sort out their distribution, I'd be happy to give them 5 stars.
I've been an inveterate smoker since the age of 12. I should have quit years ago but what with one thing
& another... Anyway I've tried the patches, the inhaler, the lozenges & the gum none of which worked for me.
Truth is I like smoking, I thoroughly enjoy it. It's partly the informal camaraderie of the bike shed, the illicit
pleasure of a shared breaktime laugh & It's great to be able to spark up in boozers again too.
Though I am pleased to be rid of the stench on my clothes, the ruining of a garment via a burnmark & the
ubiquitous stained fingers. Also there's the issue of my much improved posture as with my overall health.
I've tried other E cigs & found the vaporisers clogged up, the batteries failed, The cartridges were foul
thus useless. However I can truly say that ELECTRIC ZEBRA has been an epiphany for me!
Great product & pleasant sincere people, who've frankly probably helped put years on my life.
I Have been smoking for over 30 years and never thought I'd see the day when I wouldn't smoke a conventional cigarette, I came across the Zebra and sceptically thought I'd give it a go, it is just the same as smoking a 'normal' cigarette. I am still amazed by it and more amazed at the fact that I use that now without giving a second thought to a 'Normal' cig.
No more stained fingers! NO more chesty coughing, no more harmful chemicals that gets added to tobacco. It caters to my nicotine need! and it also caters to the psychological side of things by having something in your hand and the vapor that looks like smoke! Like I said I really can't believe it or my partner who thought I'd never stop smoking conventional cigs.
I highly recommend it.
My electric zebra has arrived!
I was a little miffed about the delay, however now I have it I am happy as Larry. Great value for money and the menthol cartridges taste great!
The customer service I received was excellent, response time immediate, courteous and my issue dealt with promptly. I was also sent a complimentary pack of cartridges for my purchase being delayed.
14 cartridges for £10 is the best value for money I have found for any e-cig yet, which is the main reason for me purchasing this brand and so far it has surpassed all my expectations for such an affordable electronic device.
I was very skeptical about trying this but had nothing to lose when I saw a voucher code for a free disposable pack in a newspaper. I couldn't believe how good it was in terms of the real sensation of smoking. Sure it's not exactly the same, but I now find real cigarettes disgusting and much prefer my zebra. It's a bit like switching brands of your favourite drink; at first you look at it as a bit of a substitute that you'll use in lieu of the real thing, but in time it becomes your first choice. I think one day everyone will smoke like this!
I bought a premier pack and it's well worth it; I have now converted my best friend, her husband, and my boyfriend, all of whom have now also bought premier packs and love them! I initially chose the american flavour cartridges when buying refills, but now much prefer the British one. I'd recommend people to try them both, but offering smaller 'trial' packs of these might be a good idea so people can find which ones they like.
One issue, and I've seen other comments here about the battery life- when I bought mine I used them right away as the leaflet said I could. I noticed my battery life was poor and much shorter than stated. When my boyfriend got his I noticed that the information now said to charge the batteries for a prolonged time before use, so obviously this issue has been addressed. I suppose not everyone is like me and reads the manual though...
So all in all, a fantastic product, well worth the money, and I no longer worry about smelling like smoke or have sore throats or tight chests after a night out. Now I'd echo other comments about having a range of designs and possibly flavours. Then again, I don't think I could resist buying them all!
I've been vaping for almost 3 years now and my current set up is my trusty but very expensive provari.
Ive been trying a few disposables for a while now as they are handy for a night out or a spare in the car or what not. Im blown away by the zebra, i love the colour design, but most importantly the throat hit and vapour produced is somewhat amazing!
The other disposables i have tried you have had to suck so hard just to try and get a bit of vapour and even then it was a tiny amount!
I love this product so much im even thinking of purchasing the Premier Pack for nights out or places where i dont want to lose my beloved provari!!
Since first trying Electric Zebra I've had one drag on a real cigarette and it was so disgusting I'll never smoke again.
I only use the Zebra when drinking and it's just brilliant. I keep giving them to random people to try and they're very impressed too.
I prefer the menthol and I think making different flavours would make them even more accessible, like vanilla, cherry etc
As a long term smoker I was pretty sceptical of how good an "electric" cigarette could be. I figure if it smokes like a cigarette but doesn't have all the junk in there then it was worth a test. I wasn't too fussed about the look but the key thing was do you get a "hit" off it.
The answer is - YES! There's no escaping that it feels different to a real cigarette - obviously it's plastic, a bit bigger and a bit heavier. You do have to draw a bit harder but you do get a satisfying hit. The most remarkable bit though is the "smoke" - the water vapour mix that you exhale is very satisfying - it's a thick, rich mix that very closely resembles that of a cigarette.
I've only tried the standard / USA cartridge, but it tastes good. Obviously it's got a distinctive look that may not be in everyone's tastes, but in my book, it looks far better on the desk alongside my phone and laptop than a packet of cigarettes. And no tobacco mess in your pocket either!
Factor in that you don't stink and you can inoffensively smoke it inside / at home / in the car / at work / wherever and it more than makes up for the fact it's not a "real" cigarette.
I honestly see my attitude to smoking changing because of this thing. I'll no longer smoke because of a routine but more about enjoyment and relaxation. Top marks to the Zebra crew.
I have been smoking cigarettes for at least 10 years and have been desperately trying to give up for 5. All of my attempts at giving up cold turkey have ended in just a few short months when I made the inevitable relapse and return to smoking 20 a day! Patches, inhalers and gum are hopeless because they do not replicate all of the cravings that a smoker gets.
Since discovering the Electric Zebra brand online, I have not smoked a single cigarette in 5 months, and have no desire to return to the inhalation of poison in a freezing alley way behind a restaurant, club or pub. I now simply puff away on my zebra in the warm dry atmosphere, just like the rest of the general public. I am currently enjoying some excellent health benefits, including increased energy throughout the day and of course, my legs are getting stronger from carrying around all the extra money I have in my wallet.
I Ordered the Electric Zebra starter kit for £7.95 after seeing it advertised with a voucher in a magazine, my order was made on the 22/08/2012, I received it 7/9/2012 after numerous calls to the call center, with no success, I eventually wrote a review that was based on the call centers service, it wasn't very good.
Then within hours their PR team wrote to me to sort the mess out, Esme from that team eventually sorted this mess out . When i got my item it was very well presented and to my delight, the product was fantastic, it tasted more like the real thing than other ecigs I have tried, you didn't have to drag on it till you we're blue in the face to get a decent measured dose of Nicotine, the battery has lasted very well also, unlike other brands that promise you the world and don't deliver.
The qoute on their website is as follows "Less than a pound for the equivalent of 20 cigarettes" whilst every other E-cigarette company make similar claims, I must admit that these filters last as long as a pack of 20 superkings menthol lasts me, taking into account i'm going to be very difficult to please after the call center issues, I can only say, I cant complain about the filters, they gave a perfectly measured hit everytime till they ran out.
They claim to be healthier for you to use than normal cigarettes, as a nurse who usually checks his o2 satuation levels daily, my sats run about 98%, which isnt that bad to say im a smoker, I checked them today and they were 99%, which within days is pretty impressive, so it proves that already the health benefits are evident.
The only thing that gets me is the black and white Zebra stripes, I know its the company's trademark, but as a man, you look a bit strange, perhaps a nice brushed steel and gold colored zebra stripes as an alternative, would look fantastic!
Got to say I recommend highly.
I bought an electric zebra premier pack after reading about all the benefits of switching from regular cigarettes including cost and health benefits.
At first I was quite impressed with the product, the design was nice and the taste was fairly decent, however nothing will taste like burning tobacco and paper. However, after using it for a few days the issues began to become clear. The battery life of each battery is awful. Each battery would only last a few hours, certainly not the number of puffs claimed. Furthermore, the claim that each cartridge is equal to around 20 cigarettes is ludicrous. Sure, each cartridge contains 18mg but are we absorbing all of it? Real cigarettes contain other compounds which aid absorption. Regardless, the cartridges don't last very long at all, I went through 2 cartridges in a day, and I was a 20 a day smoker.
I do give credit to electric zebra for introducing me to e-cigarettes, but I no longer use their products. I have since bought two eGo batteries (which last days) along with tankomizers and cartomizers, and various liquids. Watermelon and gummy bear...oh god!
If you're serious about switching to e-cigarettes it's worth doing a little research into the wide variety of products available. Sure try electric zebra, but soon you'll realise the product is cheap and they're trying to build a brand off of a poor product.
i have smoked a few different brands of ecigs. this was on an offer that you could try it free last week so i ordered one. never again! the cig overheats after your first few drags (which ruins any type of electric ciggarette).. and it makes a choo choo train sound, and burns like hell cos it heats up so much. it simply is a cheap electric fag with a design around it to make it look cool & more expensive. dosn't make it any more/less shit than the rest of the cheap e cigs on the market.
I have found the Zebra to be a very good substitute for cigarettes and it has, so far, relieved me of my craving for them. It has been a long harde struggle over the years with the use patches and various other paliatives, none of which have worked. So far the Zebra seems to be the answer for me.
I bought some cheap Chinese versions which took ages to be delivered then ordered Zebra ones because I saw an article in the Metro. They arrived a day after my Chinese versions and the difference is startling! These cigarettes look and feel amazing. It actually FEELS like a cigarette which is what I like, and the menthol cartridges taste really nice as well. I'm so happy with this company I just want to find the founder and kiss him on the lips!
I would honestly encourage EVERY SMOKER in the strongest possible sense to switch to these beauties. Really. Best decision of my life. & I've only had them in my hand for 5 minutes. :D
Always have been a social smoker but since have enjoyed smoking the Zebra as it is much cleaner without the smoke and heavy feeling on the lungs, and lately more due to extra stresses of life increased my intake slightly, but this has been nipped in the bud. I have experienced no withdraw symptoms at all, if I have felt the need for a cigarette just one hit would satisfy any craving I had.
After smoking Zebra I have actually stopped smoking now for over a week and have recommended it to friends who are trying to give up smoking themselves and have been unsuccessful.
Long live Zebra!!
I was skeptical about whether e-cigarettes worked but having tried the Zebra for the last month I can say that they really do. It provides a nicotine fix just as a cigarette does and I've cut down my smoking as a result. Also means I can use it at my desk when working from home without having to brave the winter weather! :-)
Smoked cigarettes since I was 16, then cut down by smoking small cigars, still couldn't give up completely after 40 years. Since I started smoking Zebras I've more than halved my smoking. Still enjoy a small cigar but feel a lot better for it. And they taste really great!
It's now three weeks on since my last review - and I've actually quit smoking all together - From now on just Zebras - amazing difference. Even my smokers cough in the mornings went after less than a week! Love it.
Ive been a social smoker for 15 years now. I smoked anything from 3 a day to 20 on weekends. My zebra has stopped that in its tracks. I havent felt any withdrawal symptoms because it satisfies all the habits, the smoke, the nicotine, even the hit at the back of your throat, it also tastes so much better. There has been no sacrifice with the zebra, it has simply bettered cigarettes. Smoke guilt free, wherever you like and for less money.
Im so glad i tried the zebra.
i have done my two week trial using the electric zebra. i have stopped smoking cigs and only use the zebra, i have found it to be great, i have my taste buds back and sence of smell, half way through the trial i went out and didnt have a refill in my bag so had a cig and omg it was disgusting, so went home to get one the return to my night out, i would highly recommened the zebra to anyone that smokes as a better way of smoking instead of a cig, i will not be going back to real cigs this is the way forward, dont knock it till you tryed it. thank you!!
I have been using Zebras now for 2 weeks. Before trying them I was a little skeptical, as to how they would taste. I was pleasantly surprised. The taste is at least as good as the roll-ups I usually smoke, but much cleaner. Though I'm not quite ready to give up my roll-ups yet, when I do I am confident that I will be able to quit with the help of Zebra, as it has a great taste, fulfills the cravings and feels much better on the lungs, mouth and head.
I have just completed a 2 week trial using the Electric Zebra. By using this I have cut down on 4-6 cigarettes per day and will continue to use it to stop smoking completely.
I would recommend the Zebra to anyone wishing to cut down or quit smoking as this will really help.
You feel like you are smoking a regular cigarette without the lingering smell of smoke.
