Customer of the week - Jay

What is your name?

Jay “Bolo” Cortez

How long have you been vaping?

Let's see…I’d say about 3.5 months?

And how long have you been a Volcano customer?

3 months

Cool, so all of that time?

Yeah, well I went into Irie first, I didn’t know you guys were there so after finding out where you were located I came back and have been a customer ever since. Better service all the way around, BOLO says VOLCANO ecigarettes has a much better selection and better staff.

What is your favorite product and flavor from Volcano Ecigs?

I like the Menthol Burst and the Cotton Candy in the 16mg.

You mix them together?

Yes. I found the best mixture for me. I started 50/50 and then I went 75/25 and it ended up like a 90/10 BOLO LOVES THAT MIX! It just gives it a little bit of sweet taste at the end and it’s just right for BOLO.

So 90% menthol burst and 10-15% cotton candy?

Yes and BOLO says it's working out real nice.

What is your favorite VOLCANO e-cigarette product?

The Tube Tank, definitely.

Why is that?

The convenience, that tank is the equivalent to a pack of cigarettes and you don’t have to change it often. BOLO says if you are a pack a day smoker he tank is a must! You just fill it up change the cartomizers every 3-4 weeks. The tank is much better than putting 2-3 drops on there and taking a few drags and then having to go again.

What made you decide to make the switch from smoking to vaping?

I was in the search of an alternative for me and for my family who did not enjoy me smoking so much.

Have you ever fallen off the wagon?

Nope.That’s a question that a lot of people ask me. It was less than a week, like 4 days I think? BOLO went to smoke a cigarette on the 5th morning after my cup of coffee and it was like Ugh…tasted really gross, so I just stuck to it. 

After making the switch, have you saved any money?

Ohhhh, definitely, big time I was smoking a pack and a half a day up to 2 packs a day so…economically just totally in a different ball park. 1.5-2 packs a day at around $8 a pack! One $20 bottle of fluid fills the tank like 10 times for me and it's at least a carton of cigarettes! So BOLO says there is no comparison vaping is way cheaper!

What do you do with the extra money?

I was spending..let's see,100 bucks a week on cigarettes roughly? That was 300 to 400 bucks a month compared to vaping at around $80 max for the whole month. Save save save and it's much cleaner. With no stinking up the place.

What are your goals with vaping? Do you plan to quit entirely or remain a vaper?

I do plan to quit entirely although once hitting zero mg’s I may just continue on that? I am not sure.

What would you say to someone who is thinking about switching to vaping?

Definitely, switch it’s the best thing that’s happened to BOLO.

Is there anything else you would like to share about your experiences with us?

I think I pretty much said it. It has been a good ride and I started with the 24 mg. Which ended up being a little bit too strong for me and that’s good because there ended up being a little bit of selection in there with all of the different mg’s of nicotine. I’m on 16 and I started with the 24. Now I am on the 16 and I went down to the 8. It ended up not being quite what I wanted. So I started mixing the 8 and the 16 to get some sort of good medium.
