Here are the latest Urus Cigs coupon codes, discounts and promotions for 2016 to help you save.
Urus Cigs: The Bull
According to a variety of online dictionaries, “urus”‘ is an old name for a type of wild ox. Urus is represented on e cig packets as a red and grey bull. Don’t get confused: the Urus e cig line does not make energy drink-flavored cartridges (reminiscent of Red Bull). The bull perhaps represents power, like the power to puff on e cigs for a long time, a powerful battery, powerful flavor, and the power of vapers and the e cig industry to live through the FDA regulating process.
Each Urus battery takes about 2 hours to charge, which is standard for its type. Batteries cost $12.75 on their own and look like analogs. They contain 220mAh, which is impressive for a mini cig but will probably make them a little heavy.
Two Starter Kits at Urus
Regular prices for Urus starter kits are overkill: you will see why in a minute. Sale prices, such as $24.95 for their introductory Starter Kit, are more reasonable. This kit comes with a slim matte case in white (menthol) or black (tobacco), a mini USB charger, one battery, and three 1.8% cartos.
The Premium Kit for $34.95 is a little bigger and better with an AC adapter and regular USB charger, one battery, 3 cartos, and a five-pack of any flavor from their selection of 5. That kind of price is just fine considering there are 8 cartos but just one battery.
There’s always some give and take with e cigs. Should companies provide extra cartridges or more batteries? What is more important: competitive pricing or a convenient bundle? Urus could remove three cartridges, stick with 5, and add a battery for their original price.
The Flaw in their System
Unfortunately, with a single battery the usual e cig user will be constantly frustrated. He needs that second battery or his vaping will be cut short every day. The only option he has with Urus is to buy one separately. This is not a hardship if the sale price continues: maybe it will last. Otherwise, having to pay full price and buy the second battery is a poor deal.
Limited Flavors at Urus
The company, for some strange reason, sells just five flavors of e liquid refills. It’s as if they have not heard customers begging other brands with twice as many carto styles for more choices. A selection of Menthol Fresh, Premium tobacco, Cherry Blast, Coffee Blend, and Apple Delight represents several of the most popular e cig cartomizer flavors. They are missing chocolate and vanilla. When you buy cartridges, the e juice recipe is located inside, but you can see it online too on the FAQ page: vegetable oil, nicotine, propylene glycol, and food flavoring.
Disposable E Cigs
At $6.95, these are excellent value. They are supposed to equal up to 2 packs of cigarettes and are packaged in a reusable box, so that could double as a case for storage purposes. Otherwise, those starter kit packages are firm and rounded along the edges. E cigs at Urus, however, are hard-skinned. Between your lips they feel nothing like a cigarette. Real cigs are soft.
Urus does not provide a recycling option but they encourage customers to throw their disposables into a recycling bin at the end of their life. Disposables should last for 300 puffs or so.
Refills for Urus E Cigs
Purchase 5’s, choose a twin pack, or buy the sample pack. A sampler costs $29.95 with two of each, so that is probably the best deal. Doubles are priced $7.99 and are packaged in long tubes, like the ones many e cig disposables are stored in, ensuring freshness and cleanliness. This works out to $4 for each cartridge.
Tobacco and Menthol refills cost $14.99 for 5, but the sale price for those other three flavors was $12.75. The sale price is decent; $14.99 is above average. Select 1.8%, 2.4%, or nicotine-free cartridges.
Customers who have tried these flavors have mixed reports. If you like sweet tobacco and menthol that tastes of minty gum, you are in for a treat. Smokers of real cigarettes dislike overly sweet tobacco. The cherry variety and apple are unappetizing. The one flavor that stands out as authentic is their coffee vape.
While one might be unhappy with their prices, each product comes with some kind of coupon. Disposables are packaged with rebates for starter kits, but starter kits are sent with larger rebates.
Shipping is free if you can get your order to the $50 mark, so add a car charger for $9.99 or a wall adapter for $6.59. A second USB will cost $7.99: that’s always handy to have around. Since the case is supplied, you probably won’t want one more for $10.
Many how-to pages post articles and videos. There’s just writing on the Urus website. If you learn best by watching, then that will be disappointing, but Urus is just a mini cig and they aren’t hard to get the hang of.
Urus is located in Houston, Texas.
