  1. i dont have a comment,but a question.how long is the replacements suppose to last?my husband just purchased your product on friday the 2nd of july and he is already thru 3 of them.arent they suppose to last longer than this.we were under the impression that 1 replacement would last at leat 3 days.can you please help with this because he is wanting to buy a pack of cigarettes as i am writing this.

    1. Thank you for your comment. We checked and have no record of an order under your email. And since you discuss your cartridges running out quickly it is very likely you purchased a different brand as we offer empty cartridges with bottles of e-liquid to refill your cartridges. Cartridges (not cartomizers) are approximately equivalent to 2 to 4 cigarettes. After that, you just put a couple more drops in to refill. Bottles of e-liquid are worth about 300 cigarettes based on puff count. If you do have a 3 piece e-cigarette (battery, atomizer, and cartridge) then you can use the Instead E-liquid to refill those empty cartridges.
