ROK Icon Kit.

I cannot believe we are already in October 2013, where has the time gone?! It will be Christmas before you know it!


This month however we still have Halloween to celebrate. I love the little one’sΒ trick or treating, and might even dressΒ up myself again this year πŸ˜€


This OctoberΒ is not only Halloween, it is also ‘Stoptober’ – a time when smokers in the UK try to stop smoking for 28 days, so what better time than to review another ecig for you?

As you may already know from my previous posts, I have managed to give up smoking after years of being addicted with the help of a fairly new product on the market, the ecig. I have tried a new one recently which I really like, so hopefully this post may help someone else kick the habit!

I have tried many brands since giving up smoking tobacco cigarettes last year, and have a few favourites that I use on a regular basis. One of these is the ROK ecig brand. ROK products are always of a very high standard, and their customer service and delivery are always spot on.

I’ve already got the ROK Legend kit which is fantastic. I also have the ROK Jet Black kit and have tried their disposable ecig’s which are excellent too. So when ROK introduced their newest product, the ROK Icon kit, I thought I should give it a try!

The ROK Icon has the slimmest and most regular cigaretteΒ packetΒ like recharging case, slightly smaller than your average smartphone, and feels lovely and soft to touch. It also has beveled edges so it won’t poke you with any sharp edges if you put it in your pocket!


The batteries seem to last longer than other cigarette sizes batteries, and are charged really easily when on the move by just pressing them into the charging slot in the case. This new feature of just pushing the battery into place, rather than fiddling about twisting it into place and then pushing another button to charge makes the whole thing a lot easier. The case itself holds it’s charge really well too.

The flavour and the vapour produced from the refill tips is really good, lots of flavour, lots of vapour. The only drawback I find with the refills, and this is a personal preference, is that the cartomisers only go up to a 1.6mg nicotene strength cartomiser. I prefer the 2.4 mg strength in e cig refills and liquids, so the throat hit etc wasn’t quite strong enough for me to use exclusively yet. Apart from that they are excellent, I particularly like the Cafe Cino coffee flavour. They work out at around Β£1.80 per refill which provides the equivalent of 35 regular cigarettes which is great value for money.

I think ROK have definatly listened to their customers, as all of these little touches – such as the soft case and push in charging slot, really make a difference. The case not only feels nice, but looks really stylish and impressive too. All in all a lovely kit and would highly recommend giving it a go!

The kit is being introduced at the special rate of Β£39.99 – so grab it while it’s hot! here is a linkΒ to ROK’s website:


Happy vaping, Β and good luck in Stoptober everyone πŸ˜€
