Just got it in today! After ripping open the packaging I found a nicely put together box with the device, two rechargeable batteries, charger, bottle of liquid, two liquid holders, lots of thin tubing, the pump,, two arms bands, and some instructions.

I popped in a battery, pressed down on the pump, and.....perfection Smile
The thing is, the quantity and appearance of the smoke really depends on how you push the pump. A hard, fast push gives you a very light shot of wispy smoke. A slower, more deliberate squeeze gives you a steady stream of white smoke that sort of hangs in the air and wraps around your hands or other nearby objects. The best part is how much smoke this thing can pump out with a couple deliberate squeezes. Sure, the videos of Pure Smoke show rich white "plumes" of smoke, but this device can do that too, and their video is chock full of crazy lighting that features the smoke in a way that makes it look MUCH thicker than it really is.

I tried a whole bunch of different things, including holding the smoke in my mouth (you can pump it in OR you can suck on the end of the tubing.) If anybody here has Smoke by Alan Rorrison, you get the SAME amount of smoke in your mouth and no refills! LET ME REPEAT: SAME EFFECT WITH NO REFILLS.

The tubing is super thin and the device itself is the size and shape of a sharpie marker. Here is the basic setup of the device: Pump => Lots of tubing => Device => More tubing with a cut off end. Cool fact: Everything is "plug-and-play" meaning that if anything breaks (I don't know how), or you want any extras, you can buy them from Illusioncraft pretty cheaply! An extra main unit is £35 pounds and extra rechargeable batteries (seem to be AAA batteries to me, but I can't confirm this right now) are £7 pounds each. If you use this pretty heavily, you will need refills MAYBE once per year, at £15 pounds for a bottle.




Anyway, I am loving Smoke2! I can puff this thing all day long and won't need to refill every 80 puffs Smile I literally will NOT be leaving home without this thing.

Me too! Pure Smoke's smoke might look great on video, but I bet it is the SAME as this in person.

NO NOISE!!! Literally completely silent! I was so surprised. Not even in complete silence can you hear noise!

I am especially loving the fact that you can load the smoke in your mouth. I am producing more smoke then the Smoke gimmick by Rorrison!

I just put the smoke output tube on my long desk and slowly pumped smoke across the table. The smoke is just sitting on the desk, not moving. My desk is covered in a cloud of smoke that is just sitting there.

I am in love.

This really sounds like you can have smoke from anywhere!

I'm taking there are no cartridges to replace either?

I'm quite sure that the other option out there will make more noise ... Smile

No cartridges! Just put two drops of liquid in the little liquid holder and you are set for 500-700 puffs of smoke.

Is it suitable to do a fake smoking thing where you bum a cigarette, pretend to light it, smoke it, drop the "butt" then after you walk away "restore" it so they find an intact cigarette?

Technically I guess you could... In the action of pretending to light the cigarette (holding the lighter and cigarette up to your mouth with a hand covering the lighter to "stop the wind") you could load the smoke in your mouth for the initial few "puffs". When the cigarette is just in your hand (with the supposedly burning tip hidden of course) you could pump a steady stream of smoke to make smoke continuously flow from the hand with the cigarette, as if it were still burning.

I am very glad I see such a great review. the first reviews of pure smoke have at least a bad point.

let's see how it will go for the others.

Totally different from that. SmokeV2 produces water vapour which is totally safe.
