To throw it out there, why not try 5-hour energy or equivalent that aren't as spiky in their stimulant capability?

 

I've tried 5hour energy twice, and for me it is as advertised, it does seem milder than a cup of coffee for a longer time, and without the crash.

I think that's placebo. What's the stimulant in 5-hour energy? Caffeine. How much is in there? About as much as a 16 ounce cup of strong drip coffee. 

 

Energy drinks are driven by caffeine. Some have sugar, some have artificial sweeteners. Some add fancy sounding ingredients that haven't been shown to do much in the short term or in the quantities included. There's no other magic... except for the kind that involves marketing and the power of suggestion.

You are missing the point; there is no spike; there is almost no stimulant (period).

One day I drank 10 Redbulls and did a marijuana needle.  Then I went skiing.  It was witnessed by others and after that day Freeskiing was officially created.

Used to drink it before ski races until I developed atrial fibrillation last year, at which point I cut WAY down on caffeine. Their cans suck-more than once I punctured their thin as paper aluminum and ended up with sticky, foul smelling gunk in my jacket or ski bag.

I have tried the 5 hour energy once. I just like to have something caffinated to sip on while I drive, redbull does the trick and lasts quite a while. The 5 hour one I tried was very small, fits in your palm and is gone in two-three gulps.

It taste ok diluted with vodka, like liquefied candy straight up. Either way I was born with the gift of crackhead teeth therefore if I drink this crap my teeth hurt. It can't be good for you
