Energy drinks are very popular these days, as are e-cigarettes. The folks over at Energy Shisha figured why not combine the two ideas and see what you come up with. In this Energy Shisha review we'll take a look at the product and figure out if it is a good combination of the two or yet another oddball novelty product.
What is an Energy Shisha e-Cigarette?
A quick stop over at Energy's website gives off that marketing vibe for the cool hip people who need a little extra energy punch to get through a hard night of whatever the hell it is beautiful people do. In more plain terms, it's a disposable e-cigarette that substitutes the nicotine for a blend of caffeine and taurine.
First the superficial stuff. The Shisha disposable is not a terrible looking device as far as these things go. The model I got from the company is a solid purple design with the company's logo boldly emblazoned along the side. There's no section that's supposed to look like a filter. I think they may be trying to shy away from the cigarette aspect with this product a little.
That's not really a bad thing. The LED light tip on this disposable also follows that theme. Rather than having the typical red light LED ash cap most disposable e-cigarettes sport, this one takes a different approach. It features a clear jewel-style tip illuminated by a white LED whenever the user takes a puff.
On two levels the tip was a good move. First, you don't have to worry about people freaking out over the thing looking like a cigarette. Second, the jewel thing does make the e-cigarette look a little more upmarket.
Ok, great but how well does the Energy Shisha work?
Since this is a zero nicotine product, you'd correctly assume there isn't much of a throat hit behind the Shisha. There's a little sense of throat hit, but nothing provides that like good ol' fashioned nicotine. The Energy Shisha also seems to be lacking in the vapor production department as well.
I found that I really enjoyed the flavor a great deal, so it has that going for it. It's sort of a hard to pin down fruity sort of flavor that wasn't too sweet or over-the-top.
Now for the energy part of this device, which I'm sure you're waiting for. So naturally I stuck it at the end of the review. I've heard before that vapor isn't an ideal delivery system for caffeine. I also tend to have a pretty high tolerance for caffeine since I'm not sure whether I have more nicotine or caffeine coursing through my blood at any given time.
Suffice it to say I didn't feel like I got any sort of buzz out of this device. I did try an experiment where I vaped this thing in place of my morning Monster drink (somewhere between the first and fifth cup of coffee.) While I didn't pass out from exhaustion or anything, so I guess it can't be all that bad.
How much of that is a placebo effect… well I guess I'll leave that up to you to decide.Too Long; Didn't Read
Energy Shisha are slick looking disposable e-cigarettes that opt to replace the nicotine with stuff you find in energy drinks. These purple e-cigarettes feature a white light and a jewel tip. Vapor production is a little anemic, and lacking nicotine, don't expect miracles in the throat hit department. I think it might depend on the individual as to whether the energy properties work out for them. On the plus side I think they taste fantastic. Visit the Energy Shisha site for more info.
