Fin Electronic Cigarettes Review
Fin Electronic Cigarettes is the online offshoot of e-cigarette brand My Finiti. While the Fin packaging and branding is different, they are essentially the same as the older Finti brand found in many bricks and mortar locations. This Fin Electronics Cigarettes review will take a look at the two starter kit offerings from Fin.
What’s in the box?
The Fin kits come in two speeds (each available in menthol or regular). The Fin Rechargeable Starter Kit is a sort of bare-bones starter kit packaged in a slick clear plastic retail display. The following is included in this kit.
- 1 510 automatic battery with white LED
- 1 306 style atomizer
- 7 tobacco or menthol cartridges
- 1 USB Charger
The Fin Lifestyle Rechargeable kit doubles everything in the starter kit (except the charger) and includes an AC to USB adapter. The Lifestyle kit is also packaged in one of the nicest e-cigarette boxes I’ve ever seen.
I want to talk a little more about the box the Lifestyle e-Cigarette kit comes in. Maybe I’m really impressed, but I am in love with this box. It is a tin box with rounded corners. The cover of the box slides off to reveal two packs of cartomizers and the batteries. The lid then hinges open to allow access to the rest of the kit. Everything is packaged snugly in little foam cutouts.
On to the actual e-cigarette. This may be the first 306 style kit I’ve seen in the wild. 306’s are fully 510 compatible (the battery is your basic 510 auto variety). The atomizer is where things depart from the 510 e-cigarette standard. Instead of a tube with the heating coil and bridge tucked inside, 306 atomizers feature a very short tube with the heating coil very close to the top of the tube and the stainless steel mesh covered bridge fully exposed.
Unlike 510 cartridges, 306 cartridges are designed to slide over the atomizer and not fit into it. In general this seems to offer better liquid to bridge transfer than the 510 models.
The cartridges house around .4ml of e-liquid inside a small chamber tucked into the cartridge. Compared to many starter kits which use cartomizers that generally hold between .7 and 1ml of e-liquid. This may be why the Fin kits include more cartridges than many other kits.
Cartridges also only come in two speeds, regular or menthol. This includes nicotine strength. You can have any strength you want as long as it’s 16mg/ml.
The battery comes in an off-white finish with a small FIN logo and a stripe at the base to designate whether the power source came from a regular or menthol kit. The battery LED is white and not orange or red. This is purely a personal choice for me, but I dislike red or orange LEDs on e-cigarettes (especially if they look like cigarettes). Choice isn’t Fin’s strong suit, batteries are available only in automatic standard size with the white LED

that's great it's working for you! I don't have any codes for Fin, but sometimes if you sign up on a company's site for their newsletter if they have one, they'll send out codes.

I just got the FINITI at Walgreens and I'm really liking the Menthol. I checked the FIN website and saw they have a better deal on the cartridges but found out that they are not interchangeable with each other. I contacted FIN and they said that they will be by the end of the year. Hope its true. Walgreens sells a 5 pack for $15 but FIN website is 14 for $20.

It's convenient being able to pick up cartridges at walgreens and all, but that is a little pricey.

DO NOT buy the finiti brand carts to go with the FIN battery they are not interchangeable!!! found out the hard way

I don't like it so much.The battery didn't last longer.Can you refil the cartridge with liquid,there r more flavor?

Glad to see a review on the Fin. I'm new to ecigs after smoking for almost 18 yrs. I picked up the Fin kit from WalMart and loved it. I love the taste and the convenience of having the refills at Walmart. I too learned that the refills that I purchased online did not match the battery I bought from Walmart. I contacted the company about being a confused newbie and they were so kind to send me atomizers. Fin's product and their customer service has made kicking the habit such a pleasant experience. Thank you!

I have been using Blu Ecigs for a week now, and have already sent one battery back for replacement which left me with only one battery. Last night at Wal*Mart i saw a starter kit for Fin Ecigs for $8.95, so i bought one to try out.
The kit contained 1 battery, 1 cartridge, and 1 USB charger….pretty much all you need to get started. I got home, screwed the cartridge onto the battery and took a puff……i was impressed…..very impressed. It had good vapor, good throat hit, and left me wishing for more flavors than the tobaco and menthol that Fin offers, so i decided to try something.
I took one of my Cherry Crush cartridges that are made for Blu and screwed it onto the Fin battery, AND IT WORKED !!
So if you are looking for a good ecig that is way way cheaper than Blu, yet you like the flavors of the Blu cartridges, head down to the store and pick yourself up a Fin Ecig starter pack.

Fin is the best e cig I've ever tried. It's similar in flavor to a Pall Mall, and unlike many e cigs, it actually delivers enough nicotine to satisfy cravings, not just tease you into wanting a real cig. Excellent brand, I recommend it
