Big name in e cigs but is Gamucci up there with the best?

I was especially pleased to be asked to review this brand – UK based but active in the international market since its appearance in 2007. It is something of a major player in the competitive world of electronic cigarettes, so well worth a closer look.

In the box

The particular box that arrived on my desk for review housed the Gamucci Micro Deluxe Starter Kit. The attractively packaged kit contained:

  • 4 cartomisers;
  • 2 automatic batteries; and
  • a USB and mains battery charger.

Performance

As ever, with all e cigarette reviews, performance largely comes down to the responsiveness of the battery. The Deluxe Starter Kit comes with two of them, both rated 240 mAh – not huge, but delivered completely charged and, so, ready to use straight out of the box.

The battery capacity, of course, is limited by the conscious design of making the Gamucci look like a conventional, tobacco cigarette – even if the smooth white finish lacks the familiar rings you’d find on the original, conventional cigarette. On the plus side, of course, a fairly faithful replication of the original gives this e-cigarette an immediate sense of familiarity and touch.

Reminiscent of the tobacco cigarette, too, is the impressive volume of vapour produced whenever you draw on the cigarette. There’s no need to “prime” the atomiser for the e-juice to be vaporised – and this helps preserve the operating life of the battery. Given its size and rating, a fully-charged battery lasts as long as you might reasonably expect – about half a day.

Obviously, this will vary according to the use you make of your electronic cigarette, but it is what you would expect for a battery of its size – relatively small, in order to echo the dimensions of a conventional cigarette. What that means, of course, is that you are likely to value the provision of a second battery, which you can simply slip in as soon as the first expires, re-charge, and keep the rotation on a more or less constant cycle.

In fact, if you are going to be vaping on anything approaching a “heavy” use basis an argument could be made for Gamucci to include a third battery. But then again, if you are that heavy a smoker, you might want to consider swapping a cigarette lookalike for a chunkier e-cig that can cope with heavier use.

Batteries for the Gamucci Micro Deluxe currently cost £7.99 when ordered from their website.

If you are fairly frequently out and about, of course, then you might also miss the option of a portable charging case (PCC) for your Gamucci e-cigs.

Flavour/vapour

The kit under review comes with a total of 4 cartomisers. Each one is the brand’s Regular Tobacco flavour, with a nicotine strength of 16mg. If you want a different strength or flavour you will need to order that separately.

It is entirely a question of personal taste, of course, whether the flavour you taste lives up to Gamucci’s promise to deliver something “emulating traditional tobacco”. Some people might think it does, though – to be honest – I’m still waiting to be convinced. Probably the closest comparison I could make with respect to the taste is that of VIP e-cig’s tobacco flavour – all in all a bit bland – but your own taste buds might tell you something entirely different.

Being a curious individual, eager to try other flavours that do not come with the Starter Kit, I also tried the coffee and menthol flavours. Coffee flavoured e-cigs might be an acquired taste – especially if you like coffee flavoured chocolate; but the menthol I found to be a reasonably flavoursome alternative that I might try every once in a while.

Both delivered a satisfyingly impressive volume of vapour but still didn’t touch V2 Cigs in terms of flavour for my tastes.

How long does the cartomiser last? According to Gamucci it should be around 375 drags. Personally I found this to be overly optimistic, since I got something around 140 drags. It all depends, of course, on the way you use the device – and the slower and longer each one, the fewer you are likely to get.

When the cartomiser has run dry, of course, you will need to re-stock. Currently, a pack of three costs £6.99 – not cheap (the standard across all brands is likely to fall somewhere between £7 and 10 for a pack of five), but by no means top of the range.

When re-stocking, you will also be able to choose from a greater range of flavours – cola, vanilla, cherry, and grape, for example – though these all come with just the one 1.6% nicotine strength.

On the other hand, if you after a genuine tobacco taste, refills come in a choice of 0% (i.e. nicotine-free), 0.6%, 1.1% and 2.2% – none of which are heavily into the nicotine concentration.

Verdict: as ever, of course, it all comes down to a matter of taste. Speaking personally, I didn’t much reckon on any of the tobacco flavours, but would go for the coffee or menthol flavours for the occasional vape.

As far as the volume of vapour is concerned, however, there is certainly nothing faulting the Gamucci, which delivered an impressive cloud whenever I took a drag.

Warranty/returns

Provided you haven’t opened the pack, Gamucci will replace it on return within seven days. If the product is faulty, however, the warranty runs for a full 30 days.

Overall verdict

Some good, some bad – like most products, of course. On the positive side is the consistently impressive volume of vapour produced by this e-cig. It is a smooth and satisfying experience, thanks largely to the company’s exclusive Vaporcore technology.

The problem with a lookalike cigarette, of course, is always going to be its size and, therefore, the relative limitation of its battery. Unless you get a portable charging case like that included with the Jacvapour V1P starter kit or are prepared to go for a fatter, chunkier electronic cigarette, there is really no way around this problem – though you might want to consider investing in a third battery if the Gamucci Micro Deluxe is the one for you.

    It simply doesn’t work.

    Despite claims of coming with a charged battery, after several hours charging I might as well have stolen a straw from McDonalds.

    Owned plenty of other e-cigs … This one is a disgrace.

    Don’t even be tempted to piss away your money on this sketchy crap.

    I started the gamucchi around two weeks ago, very satisfying as I havnt felt the need to use tobacco, I started with 3 packs of tips, nine in total. ,still have four tips left, amazing!, only one dud in pack hopefully this doesn’t keep happening I’d definlately recommend them I’ve tried other vapes and went back to smoking, Trying to find a store that supplies is proving difficult, Tesco is the only store I’ve found them if morestores had them that would help!

    Bottom Line

    I bought the e-cigarette starter kit and it leaked all over the place. Ended up swallowing the liquid and fainting.

    I bought the gold tobacco twice (because I couldn’t find my usual blend) and it does not taste of tobacco at all, it tastes of aniseed; moreover, it makes me physically sick (a bad feeling in my stomack).

    One star for me.

    find myself walking around with it stuck in my mouth like a dummy never do that with real ciggs. May encourage kids to smoke, To heavy. why do we need this light coming on, the battery would last longer without that.

    Bottom Line

    A serious step closer after years of trying to quit. I never smoked menthol but like the menthol Gamucci although my sister who is a menthol smoker hasn’t been converted despite an attempt..Saving some money been using these around 9 months smoke real ones if i’m having a drink seems to be working. Every shop seems to offer e cigs of one kind or another only a few stock Gamucci.
    Would like a slightly stronger version sometimes.
    Would like a lighter weight version.
    Would like a softer tip
    would like light switched off

    Pros
    Not as many chemicals as normal tobacco (apparently)
    Con
    It is hard to draw much vapor out. Quite often dies on 3rd and 4th puff. Inconsistent results, Was not charged when bought and took around 6 hours to charge.
    What cigarettes do you / did you smoke?

    How many did you smoke per day?
    15-20
    Do you still smoke? If so how many per day?
    Its my first day but have felt strong urges to smoke
    Bottom Line

    I feel very unsatisfied with regard to my nicotine intake and have felt like lighting up several times during the day, I feel i need to take around 6-8 good puffs to get any sense of relief and it don’t last very long, also noticed a slight headache since using this product.
    Think i will go for a bigger better option and put this down to a lesson learned.

    Con
    Est. puffs no where near
    Bottom Line

    Love the mint taste but it isn’t long, about 150 puffs, before the taste starts dwindling and no back of the throat hit. In fact it all gets replaced by a burning feeling on the throat. During my time of purchasing gamucci I have actually had several that were wet and empty when taken from blister pack.

    I can guarantee changing atomiser each evening and going by that if you calculate a very conservative 10 puffs in a normal cigarette divided into the estimated 375 puffs of E cig I would have smoked the equivalent of 37 cigs. No way especially when I don’t use it that much during the day.

    The size and compactness of the gamucci I like above all others and for this reason I keep on buying them.

    I just feel that the company should come clean and give a truer estimate of how long they will last and reduce the prices to fall in line with the facts

    produces a big cloud and lasts for a good time.
    Con
    I've used for a while and some batteries are better than others.
    Bottom Line

    After a few days whilst I acclimatised to the gamucci it replaced smoking and it’s evil grip. I’d be lost without it. Easy to use, fairly robust and looks like it’s an ecig rather than a stupid techno gadget. Given time it really does work.

    Pros
    Pleasant taste, loads of vapour, relatively long lasting refills
    Con
    Finding refills on high street is hit and miss
    Bottom Line

    Bought one on the recommendation of a friend. Loved the taste, kind of nutty but flavoursome up until the last toke. Haven’t had a fag since.

    Couldn’t find refills anywhere though, eventually found a local tesco express that stocked them but none of the larger stores do for some weird reason, nor any newsagents I could find, but then I do live a bit out in the sticks. Bought a Nicolite because they seemed more abundant but the cartomizers tended to go very quickly and have a plasticky taste towards the end. Bought a load of E-refills by M&P online, same problems but with some sickly-sweet leakage too which is about as unpleasant as it sounds and possibly quite dangerous.

    Got my Gamucci up and running again and it’s like night and day, so much more vapour than the Nicolite, with a more robust and moist throat hit and with none of the leakage I got from the dodgy M&P refills. For a low profile e-cig I can’t really fault it apart from battery life, but that’s what you get with all of them. Pack of 3 refills £6.99, same price as the Nicolites but seem to be longer lasting. Cheaper than bacca anyway.

    Highly recommended, even over smoking.

    Pros
    Tip light is orange, unlike some silly blue ones.
    Con
    Battery lasted two or three PUFFS only.
    Bottom Line

    I thought I’d try Gamucci after some less than satisfactory experiences with 10 Motives e-cigs. (10 Motives refills are a bit hit-and-miss. Sometimes a pack of refills last me a week, sometimes only three or four days, despite pretty consistent usage.)
    Sadly, the Gamucci (or at least the one I bought from Tesco yesterday) simply doesn’t work very well. Despite being “fully charged” – the charger light went from red to green – on two separate occasions, delivery of vapour failed in a couple of puffs. As the tip light flashed when this happened, I assume this is a battery thing, rather than a dud refill.
    I have to mention that even in the moments it was apparently working, the Gamucci delivered an empty-feeling and dry-tasting vapour, with little to no “throat hit”. I can only compare it to the experience of smoking Silk Cut Ultra when you’re used to Lambert & Butler full strength. It actually left me feeling slightly nauseous.
    In frustration, I picked up a 10 Motives e-cig which I’d previously finished with and considered empty – just sucking once on that “empty” 10 Motives one gave me more of a hit than the brand new fully charged Gamucci. Don;t get me wrong – I seriously believe 10 Motives to be a slightly dodgy quality brand, so it should be obvious I’m not just one of their employees dissing the competition!
    I’m happy to report that Tesco gave me my money back with no objections, and I immediately bought a pack of 10 Motives refills.
