About Cue Vapor System

By Tyler Cooper
HighYa Staff Published on: Sep 25, 2017

Cue Vapor System is an electronic vaporizer that claims to simplify and streamline the entire process of what has colloquially become known as “vaping.” Unlike many traditional vapes and e-cigarettes, there is no need to swap out coils and other parts when using the device, and the 5ml cartridges (which are required to use the device) are said to last many users an entire day or more.

The Cue comes in six different colors; white, black, blue, pink, red, and orange. The product comes with a 1500 mAh internal battery, which the company states will last users anywhere from a day to a week or more, depending on individual usage habits.

The makers of the product claim that it represents a combination of the ease-of-use that comes with disposable vapes, and the power and satisfaction you typically find with higher-powered “mod” devices, albeit without all the extra work. In order to determine if this is truly what you can expect from using the Cue, let’s take a closer look at how it’s supposed to work below.

How the Cue Vapor Works

At a glance, the Cue operates similarly to other vaporizers, heating up essential oils but not actually combusting them. Instead, they are boiled, causing them to release a vapor containing the active ingredients that you then inhale.

Cue’s novel approach, however, centers around the fact that it utilizes first party cartridges instead of the bottles of “e-liquid” found in seemingly countless varieties in stores and online nationwide. The company claims that this means less hassle for users, due to the elimination of cracks, leaks, and other issues commonly associated with vaporizers.

These cartridges contain 5ml of liquid each, which the manufacturer claims will last users anywhere from one day to a week or more, depending on how often you use the device. They recommend removing the cartridge throughout the day to check its level using the see-through construction.

Understanding the Differences Between Vaporizers and Cigarettes

Vaporizers have become incredibly popular over the last decade as an effective alternative to cigarettes, leading many former smokers to become full-time “vapers” instead. One of the largest reasons for this change is undoubtedly the subtle societal shift away from cigarette use being the norm, which itself has been spurred on by enhanced scientific clarity in recent years as to the numerous adverse effects tobacco exhibits on human health.

Having said this, much is still unknown about the long-term safety of vaporizer products like the Cue, though new data is coming out at a steady pace. The Mayo Clinic puts it bluntly: “There’s no scientific evidence that using e-cigarettes is safe.”

They go on to mention some other potential dangers about the devices and the chemicals they contain: “Researchers have found that some e-cigarettes have nicotine amounts that are very different from what's on the label. In addition, some flavoring agents and other additives have been shown to be toxic.”

In addition, the long-term effects of inhaling vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol and other additives commonly found in e-liquids are still largely unknown to science. For this reason, both the FDA and the American Heart Association have issued warnings about the potential health risks associated with these products.

But what about their role in helping smokers quit? Although e-cigarettes have long been touted as an effective method of quitting smoking, WebMD, the FDA and the Mayo Clinic all agree that there isn’t any definitive evidence supporting this to be true in all situations. For the most part, evidence of their use in cessation is still quite anecdotal, from the sound of things.

So, what does all of this mean for you? In short, vaporizer devices might not be completely healthy in the long run, nor are they a proven way to quit smoking for good. In terms of the Cue specifically, there’s the potential for nicotine addiction–though the company does offer nicotine-free options, to be fair.

The main factor of concern is the inclusion of both vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol in the company’s cartridges, because again, long-term data on these chemicals remains inconclusive.

Despite all of the above, there’s growing evidence supporting the claim that they are at least healthier than their tobacco-filled predecessors. Of course, with something that kills seven million people a year–half of all of its users–that can still be viewed as fairly significant.

Cue Vapor Pricing & Return Policy

Cue Vapor is currently sold by the manufacturer online for $29.99. This “starter pack” includes the following items:

  • Cue device
  • Smooth Tobacco cartridge in 3mg nicotine
  • Deluxe carry case
  • 3 ft. USB cable
  • Dual-port car charger
  • Your choice of one 3mg nicotine cartridge

It can also be purchased a la carte for $19.99. Shipping is free for standard ground, or $19.00 for rushed service.

Individual replacement cartridges will run you $6.99 each, or $31.99 for a five-flavor discovery pack. There are currently four different categories of flavors available, including tobacco, fruit, mint, and dessert. There were ten total flavors available on the website as of this writing:

  • Smooth tobacco
  • Menthol tobacco
  • Apple tobacco
  • Peach tobacco
  • Full tobacco
  • Berry smooth
  • Creamy mint
  • Chocolate banana
  • Vanilla cream
  • Fresh melon

Each of these flavors are available in three different nicotine concentrations; 0mg, 3mg, and 6mg.

The product’s website does not seem to list a written return policy, so we reached out to customer service during our research for clarification. We were told that all orders include a 60-day money-back guarantee, less shipping costs. You’ll be required to pay return shipping to get the product back to the manufacturer. To initiate a return, you’ll need to call customer service at 800-377-7709.

Cue Vapor vs. the Competition

As mentioned earlier on, vaporizer products have been commonplace in the US and abroad for several years now, and as a result, there are hundreds of different models available both online and in-stores today.

Despite this, it seems as though the vast majority of these products are not “closed systems” like the Cue Vapor–meaning that you can use any flavor e-liquid instead of just pre-packaged cartridges. Only a few others–like the Europa, for instance–utilize similar proprietary e-liquid delivery methods.

If you’re searching for the right vaporizer for your needs, it can be all-too-easy to feel a bit intimidated and even overwhelmed by the sheer variety of products and technologies available today. Because of this, here are a few things to keep in mind going into a potential purchase:

  • Determine what level of involvement you are looking for. Closed systems like the Cue seem like they might be ideal for those new to vaping in general, or for those who simply don’t want to mess with coils, cleaning, leaks and other little quirks that come along with “mod” devices and more specialized vaping devices.
  • Consider the long-term investment required. With a standard vaporizer, you can use just about any bottle of e-liquid out there, and many are available in bulk online and in-stores in an impressive variety of flavors and nicotine levels. With a system like the Cue, you’ll be limited to the in-house flavors and quantities, and because the company states that the 5ml cartridges may only last a day or so depending on usage, you’re looking at a potential $7/day fee in operating costs alone.
  • Always be mindful of the risks. As we mentioned above, much is still to be learned about the potential for adverse effects that come along with using a vaporizer. Because there are still many unanswered questions, we’d recommend speaking with your doctor directly before making a purchase.

Final Thoughts on Cue Vapor

Bringing everything that we’ve learned about the Cue Vapor System together, we still have a few lingering thoughts that we feel are worth discussing.

On the one hand, the Cue seems like a simple, user-friendly way to break into vaping, especially if you’ve never had any experience with it in the past, or are looking for something a bit more hands-off than the “mod” culture that seems to be prevalent in the wider vaping industry.

On the other, using a closed system that can cost you as much as $7 per day in e-liquid may be cost-prohibitive for many. This is especially true for those looking to quit smoking for financial reasons.

Painted against the backdrop of the warnings issued by the American Heart Association and the FDA, as consumers ourselves, we’d likely feel more comfortable speaking with a doctor before making a purchase, especially if we were just getting started with vaporizers. This is especially true considering that the Cue Vapor System includes options containing nicotine, which is an addictive substance.

Despite these concerns, the Cue Vapor System looks like a solid device for those looking to begin vaping with minimal overhead. If you choose to try it out, you’ll be able to take advantage of the 60-day money-back guarantee, should you decide it’s not for you in the end.

    Really enjoying my Cue so far!

    • Kentucky,
    • Jan 31, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought my Cue and used the cartridge in it. Smooth tobacco, and it tastes and smells great. I am a heavy smoker so thinking of moving up to a 6mg cartridge. But I love the way it feels like I have had a real puff and love, love, love the smell (can't say that with cigs). I hope it proves to be the great product, I believe it is. The cartridges will cost less than what I spend on cigarettes a day, so I am not complaining! I feel it is very much worth what I spent, and I will stand a chance to stop smoking and not fool with all the mess and measuring of other cloud vapes. Which the kid in me loves the cloud!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    These cartridges cost too much more than a pack of cigarettes

    These cartridges don't last you all day, especially if you are a smoker, and at $7 that's way more than cigarettes to me. If people truly want to help you change your smoking habits or quit, they wouldn't charge you an arm and a leg for this.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    My wife and I are really enjoying ours. Nothing bad, to say at all. Easy to use and charge.

    For those that have left reviews that are negative, y'all must be stupid (LOL)! It’s to simple and easy to use. Really funny reading the negative reviews, so thanks for your ignorance! Try going back to cigs and lighters for a change.

    Nothing is perfect, but for a vape system, this one is inexpensive and easy to use.

    Hands down hassle-free, love it!

    I was skeptical about any vape. I started researching about it because I have tried all methods to quit. Let me tell you, if you're not puffing constantly on this product, this is the one for you. The design fits in your pocket easily. The refills will last you a while again, as long as you're not constantly puffing on it. The unit was fully charged when it came and that was awesome. I put in the cartridge and it took a minute to figure it out to turn on, but it works great. I started off with 3 ml and am going to reduce it in another week.

    From day one of using this product, I haven't touched a cigarette. I will gladly spend the $6.99 for the cartridge (they last me two days). The unit has a long lasting charge also (again, as long as you're not a constant puffer). It's great. Thanks for a great product.

      Your comment was rude. I came here for informational reviews, not someone who is condescending towards others. You sound like a complete jerk.

    Water bong

    At first, it was good, but then as I started to use it more frequently, it became bubbly like a water bong. It literally sounds like a water bong, like you're sucking it. It's bubbling and fluttering this substance into my mouth. Just wasn't what I had hoped for.

    The Cue is DANGEROUS.

    Ok, they get extremely hot and I have second to third-degree burns on my lips from it. I had to go back to the smoke shop and return two because they did not work. I understand that everyone must make a living, but these are more dangerous than the Mod boxes. I will be in touch with my lawyer at the beginning of the week for sure. So, don't try these!

      Second and third-degree burns are deep burns. How did this happen? Are is this being exaggerated?

    Love it!

    The first vapor I ordered was with this TV exclusive offer that came with everything and then some! This tobacco flavor tastes like caramel, and then I order the vanilla cream, and it is my absolute favorite! This little device gives you a huge cloud production with a smooth taste and a lot of flavor! It doesn’t hurt my throat or makes me cough like others do! It has everything my sub them heavyweight tank/device has, but it’s lightweight and it doesn’t leak, and there’s no messing with coils or gaskets to replace! I would recommend this to any vapor out there!

    Don't buy it

    • Arizona,
    • Dec 29, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    This idea is good, but the cartridges don't last long and it's impossible to buy at any vape supply house here in Tucson, AZ! That means you have to pay $6.95 a piece and wait two weeks while Cue sends you your cartridges. Then you can't refill them, so it's much more expensive than other vape machines. All in all, don't waste your $69!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    In love with it!

    Sorry to hear so many people are having issues with their unit, but mine works, and I LOVE IT! I feel like some of the complaints are just nitpicking. Like about the cartridge not being full. Who cares if it's not full, as long as the right amount is in there. Maybe there is a reason why they don't fill it all the way.

    Anyway, mine works perfectly. I haven't charged it yet and have been using it for two days and am still on the first cartridge. I bought this one because of the ease of use and it is not disappointing so far; compact, clean, easy to use, flavors are great, battery lasts, and the cartridge lasts with no leaks. And I don't how anyone can go through a whole cartridge in one day. I can't, that's for sure!

    My goal is to quit smoking for good, so this is just a means to get there. I am not looking for a substitute habit as it sounds like most people are. This has become my main daily vape and is working great for me so far! Five stars all day my G'z!

    Great idea, but poorly executed

    • Harrisburg, PA,
    • Dec 21, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I saw an infomercial for the Cue Vapor System and ended up getting one when I saw the local Love's Travel shop got them in. It's a powerful little device and most of the flavors I've had are great and they put out very thick vapor.

    Cue is a great idea, but overall the company executed the idea poorly. The reason I say that is because about 12 out of the 30 or so cartridges I've had were defective. Keep in mind these cartridges aren't cheap, 7 bucks each for only 5 ml of juice, so the cartridges are only half full when purchased. The cartridges have a poorly designed defect where the coil can get gummed up, and as a result, there will be little to no smoke output along with it spitting gummy pieces of vape juice in your mouth. When this happens the cartridge is no longer usable.

    The company has replaced a few of mine after I contacted them via Facebook but took weeks to send the new cartridges out. They said that cartridges that have the coils gummed up are old or mishandled. The Cue unit, as well as the cartridges, are a patent-pending design that I believe has not been thoroughly tested before being released for consumer use.

    If it weren't for the constant hassle of defective cartridges I'd give this a 5-star rating. I recommend trying it out as long as you do not rely on a Cue as your only form of smoking/vaping due to its questionable cartridge reliability.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Cartridge very hard to get into the device! It will not work. Not a good experience!

    I made sure it was charged. I took the little rubber pieces out of the cartridge as directed, I fiddled with the thing for an hour trying to get the cartridge to pop into the device, and it only goes in a little and flops around. This is not user-friendly! If I had known this was so hard to load, and that I could have gotten the useless thing for $19.99, I paid near $50.00 and that ticks me off! I hate it! I have had a real problem finding an address to return this piece of junk!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
