Starter Kits - $9.78 with Kit Options

If you’ve been to a mall or gas station lately, you’ve probably seen the Krave disposable e-cigs being sold next to Fifty-One’s starter kits. This is the case in Wisconsin where Electronic Cigarette Nation is based. The Krave is a sub-brand of Fifty-One. Up until recently we dismissed the Fifty-One family as a Smoking Everywhere wannabe. But after getting over my ego, I decided to see what Fifty-One and the Krave were all about.

After being thoroughly impressed by The Duo by Fifty-One, the Krave 500 disposable electronic cigarette had a lot to live up to. The Krave 500 comes in Tobacco and Menthol flavors and I chose Tobacco. The packaging is simple and is obviously made for being sold in stores. After finagling the Krave 500 out of it’s case, I first noticed it’s size. It’s very large but this is justified by it’s claims of giving “up to 500 puffs.”  Next I noticed that it is one solid piece. I’ve used other disposable e-cigs but the battery always unscrews from the cartomizer. I realized that this doesn’t really make sense as there isn’t a need to take a disposable apart. I popped off the cap, pulled off the “intake” hole-covering sticker and went to town.

The Krave 500 in Tobacco flavor has a very organic taste. There is no sweetness to it, and it actually tastes somewhat like burning tobacco leaves. I wasn’t sure about the flavor after my first few puffs, but it quickly grew on me. I still prefer other e-liquids much more than the Krave Tobacco flavor, but it is pretty nice. The throat hit is very subtle, yet strangely satisfying. To top it off, the vapor production is great.

Disposables are meant for people who are interested in trying electronic cigarettes, but don’t want to invest in expensive starter kits. If you are a smoker of ultra-light cigarettes (as they used to call them) and are on the fence, try out the Krave 500. Fifty-One also sells a Krave Disposable “pack” which consists of three pieces and comes with four cartridges; we hope to test it out soon.

    I have been a smoker since age 8 and had basically tried every brand out there. I’m now 44 and wanting to quit smoking altogether. Saw a comercial for Fifty-one and got really curious. Went to the local BP Gas station in Georgia and found the 500 puff disposable cigarrette. After purchasing it I used it right away. That was at 10:00 AM this morning and guess what? I have yet to touch one of my newport cigarrettes. This thing is satisfying, convincing and very inovative. I have messed with patches, pills and so on with no avail. Yet this thing is working like a charm. I bought the one with 0 grams of nicotine. No cravings, no dissapointments of any kind and best of all, I am saving a lot by using it instead of the 3 packs per day I used to smoke. I’ll update this next week again. Right away I went back and purchased the complete kit with a carrying case. I am very happy and satisfied with this product. I also bought several 500-puff disposables to send to friends. The only thing I did not liked was the fact that the hole on the dispossable doesn’t have the same stopage as a normal cigarrette. Inhaling it feels like sucking air through a straw. I solved this dilema by covering the little hole and it feels completely like a real cigarrette.
    Thanks fifty-one
