The White Cloud E-Cig website states "...White Cloud Cigarettes are a premium alternative to tobacco cigarettes". We at ECCR took their best starter kit, the Cirrus 3X, for a long test drive and afterwards came to the realization that they weren't just blowing smoke with this statement.
As our White Cloud Cirrus 3X e-cigarette review confirms, they have certainly delivered a premium product of the highest quality.
We kept meticulous records of the tangible, verified performance numbers. These figures were based on consistent outputs over the long-term. Most e-cig brands inflate puff count claims and e-cig battery life performance and we have caught many of those companies and given you the real, reliable data so you can make an informed choice. In this case, the White Cloud Cirrus 3X really delivers.
For the purposes of this ecig review, we ordered the Cirrus3X starter kit.

Priced at $89.95, White Cloud's Cirrus 3X Kit comes packed with:

Battery & Charging Performance
The White Cloud Cirrus 3X ecig battery, according to White Cloud, is "...by far the longest lasting electronic cigarette we've ever made. Many of our customers have been begging us for years to produce a battery that can churn out more than 600 puffs on a single charge and doesn't resemble a self defense weapon". Well, we have to agree! The Cirrus 3X electronic cigarette battery is all White Cloud claims it to be.
We've tested it extensively and can confidently tell you that if you are a casual vaper, you'll have this ecigarette battery lasting at least 2 days. If you vape heavily, it will last you all day and possibly into the next day. We consistently were able to get 550-650 puffs from the White Cloud 3X battery. It simply outperforms 95% of all the other batteries on the market that are of comparable size.
We're confident that at times you'll be tempted to put the battery back on charge even before the battery runs out. We found ourselves thinking... "man, this things has GOT to be getting close to going dead soon". That's the point when you realize just how good these White Cloud e-cig batteries truly are.
You'll be happy to know that with the Cirrus 3X kit, you'll be getting White Cloud's new ChargeBolt USB charger. According to White Cloud Cigarettes.... "With more power, better ergonomics, and a more efficient charging profile than our standard express charger, the ChargeBolt has been designed to protect your battery and eliminate power spikes that can erode battery cell performance." We're not sure what kind of magical lightning the ChargeBolt employs, but we do know it is one of the fastest ecigarette chargers on the market.
Our e-cigarette review testing showed that the White Cloud Cirrus 3X batteries took no longer than 2 hours to charge after being totally drained. This is even more amazing when you factor in just how long the batteries last. We've tested batteries from other brands that last only 100 puffs and take 5 hours to charge!
Speed of charge may not be the most important point on your list, but when you need to charge up your e-cig batteries in a hurry, it's greatly appreciated. We would suggest picking up a Squid charger as well because the kits come with 3 batteries and, if needed, you'll be able to charge all three at once. See the video review or the product photos below to get a great look at the White Cloud Squid charger.

Refill Cartridge Efficiency
After charging the White Cloud e-cigarette batteries fully (which only took about 10 minutes as they come pre-charged), we selected the XXtra Strength Tobacco cartomizer to test out first. We were pleasantly surprised by it's bold tobacco flavor and the amount of vapor it produced, but the thing that impressed us most was the absolute smoothness of their "Smooth Draw Technology". It's not just a clever name, it's truly one of the easiest e-cigarette puffs we have ever experienced.
Now, with that said, we do feel if you're a veteran e-cig user and have used other products, it will definitely take some getting used to. Many of you may find yourself pulling on it a bit slower to get a hit from it that is more like what you're used to with some of the other brands. We're convinced if you give it some time, you'll get accustomed to it and actually appreciate the easy draw. You don't have to pull hard at all, it just feels natural.
The vapor is plentiful and the nicotine satisfaction is so spot on, you may find yourself pulling out the White Cloud over and over again over any other brand you may own. In fact, we'd go so far to say that the "Double X" Strength cartomizers offered by White Cloud are a literal nicotine hammer! Use with caution. For most users, you'll only need 2-3 puffs and you'll be putting it down for a bit. This can be a real bonus as it will save you from puffing away all day long thereby decreasing the amount of cartomizers you go through weekly.
White Cloud Cigarettes has a great lineup of flavors and we are happy to report that the refill cartridge flavors do not drop off like they do with some of the other brands. In fact, the flavor and nicotine match up perfectly. They both last equally long. When the nicotine starts to weaken, the flavor starts to weaken. It's almost like they have an intelligent "cut off" switch in the cartomizer. But you'll most definitely get 350-400 puffs from each one of them. Many electronic cigarette companies make huge claims about their product, but we've found that White Cloud e-cig actually lives up to those claims.
We are happy to report that since our initial written e-cigarette review and review video, White Cloud has actually advanced its cartridge technology and the number of flavor and nicotine options. They now have more than 20 flavors and six nicotine levels offered in Clear Draw, Clear Draw II and InvisiVapor e-cig refill cartridges.
White Cloud E-cig has gone the extra mile to give you more and more options! Cheers!

Review Wrap Up & Summary
Overall, we don't really have anything negative to say about the White Cloud Cirrus3X e-cig starter kit. We honestly and truthfully enjoyed the product. The batteries and cartomizers last amazingly long, the line up of flavors is great, the charge times are short, and the whole product itself just oozes quality. If you're shopping for a high quality e-cigarette, White Cloud should definitely be at the top of your list.
With the quality and precision that White Cloud Cigarettes has put into this e-cigarette starter kit, we feel confident in recommending any White Cloud products.
Yes... their products are that good.
Also of note, if you are interested in supporting a company that is dedicated to creating more American jobs, White Cloud Cigarettes has made several headlines that will make you proud. While so many businesses have jumped into outsourcing to save money and increase profits, White Cloud has invested in bringing manufacturing jobs from overseas to back here in the USA.
They have always relied on USA made e-liquid but now they have taken the extra step and imported the entire e-cig cartridge production process to their home base in Florida. E-cigarette business ventures are helping create American jobs.
