About the VIP Photon Express Kit:

First things first: The VIP Photon Express kit is for people looking for a premium e-liquid-based vape pen.

The major difference between this product and the V-Range by VIP is that in order to refill it, it requires e-liquid (electronic cigarette liquid) as opposed to screw-in cartomizers - click here to see our e-liquid range.  The three huge advantages of filling up with e-liquids are as follows: 1. You're not tied to any one compatible brand, you can source your e-liquid from anywhere. 2. E-liquids are considerably cheaper than refilling with cartomizers. 3. The world's your oyster when it comes to e-liquids as they are available in so many more flavours than the standard 4 or 5 offered with cartomizers, you can even mix e-liquids together to create new and interesting flavours!

Although it's not an inexpensive device compared to cigarette-style kits, the VIP Photon offers fantastic value for money with its large 1100mAh battery (as opposed to smaller 650mAh batteries found products like the Vapouriz Fuse) and two clearomizers (most kits only come with one). If you've gone past the 'it must look and feel like a cigarette' phase which nearly all of us go through when we switch from traditional cigarettes to electronic cigarettes, you'll find the VIP Photon an excellent and long-term alternative. 

Key Features of the VIP Photon Kit:

  • Simple one button operation
  • Press button five times to turn on and off
  • 10 second cut-off
  • Overcharge protection
  • 1100mAh battery (lasts 8-11 hours of regular use)

VIP Cigarette Photon Express E-Cigarette Kit Colour: Silver

Love it, love it, love it!!! :D This is the 4th e-cig I have bought, the first one (Kik) didn't produce any vapour, I then bought 2 Vype e-pens, one I had to return because it wouldn't charge and the other works fine but the flavours are very limited. This VIP is definitely a VIP product. The flavours are fantastic and varied and the it produces loads of vapour. The battery lasts ages. The only downside I've found (and it's a minor one) is that it's quite loud, especially when I sneakily use it in the loo at work. Totally recommended!!

The e cigarette leakes as it comes a parts on its own. This has leaked into his mouth and on his hands!!

VIP Cigarette Photon Express E-Cigarette Kit Colour: Silver

Excellent value for money, good size battery at 1100 mah, received 48hrs ago, only just turned blue, which is just over half discharge, so excellent battery life, clearomizer is new generation, meaning if turned upside down you won't lose any liquid in your pocket or bag, negative point is only that you can't see level of liquid very clearly due to black writing on dark grey colour of cylinder, very small negative point this, overall extremely satisfied with quality of product, this is now my 3rd e cig, and by far the best

Fantastic device from a fantastic supplier

I can't express how happy i am with the VIP starter kit. This is my first taste of the vapor world and I am very impressed. I haven't smoked a traditional cigarette since receiving the kit and don't intend to as the vapor gives me all I need.Have got to recommend Electric Tobacconist as 'THE' supplier for e-cigarettes and accessories. The service I have received is amazing. Excellent prices, great range of products, fast delivery and customer service that is second to none.

June 13, 2014 |

better than cartomizers

bought this to try instead of cartomizers that I usually get. Is working out at least a 1/3 of the cost. One cartomizer was lasting a day, now a bottle of e-liquid is lasting nearly two weeks!

vip starter kit

The vip starter kit battery and charger is okay but the clearomisers are rubbish because that both leaked really bad. And the two replacements were even worse..

June 10, 2014 |

It Works..!!!!!

Wow, thank you, finally found a product that has helped me kick the habit. I have been smoking daily for 32 years and tried many times over the years to give up. This is the only product that has done it for me. 10 / 10

great product and came quick :)

May 19, 2014 |

The best yet

I have tried every one of the Vip,s. But this one is the beez neez.

May 5, 2014 |

After 35 years i'm smoke free at last!

I can't rate this kit highly enough. If you want to give up smoking it's just what you need. I've tried patches gum pills you name it but the VIP kit made quitting easy. Every order I've made has been delivered the next day. I made a mistake with one order and had phone customer services they were brilliant. I will stick this product and company. I'm very very happy

Photon Pro Express

Great product. Had the photon for about 3 months now the battery life is incredible, only charged it twice. The original clearomiser did leak from the top. I then moved onto a dual core clearomiser which was much better, it came with an o ring on the top connection stopping any leakage. The dual core fitted fine. VIP liquids were good especilly blueberry. I think that the life of the battery justifies the Photon being slightly larger than some of the others. Highly recommend it great product.

I especially love the flush button design of this photon battery. I have bought another vip battery as a gift as was so impressed. brilliant service from here and fast delivery too!

March 24, 2014 |

Excellent but...

High quality kit arrived very swiftly and works well. The "but.." is about the instructions. It took me a day to work out that you need to press 5 times to stop and start!

VIP Photon Express Kit

I have tried so many electronic cigarettes without success, but am now on day 12 of the VIP and am so pleased as I was quite a heavy smoker.

When will my order arrive?

If you order by 4pm on a week day your order will despatch the same day. Our Royal Mail standard delivery method means your order should arrive next working day from despatch date (and this is the case 90% of the time), but please wait 7 days before contacting us. If you need it quicker, you can select a faster delivery method (eg Royal Mail Next Day Guaranteed) in the checkout under "Shipping Method". For more information, click the Delivery Tab.


How long will the battery last between charges?

The length of time your ecig battery will last depends on how often you use it, but as a guide, this battery should allow 12-14 hours of vaping before needing a recharge.


How do I maintain an e-liquid-style kit?

E-liquid-style kits of this type require the following upkeep:

1. E-Liquid refills - one bottle of e-liquid can last anything from a couple of days to a whole month depending on the size of the bottle and the amount you use it. Once it runs out, though, almost any e-liquid can be used to refill it (click here to see our e-liquids range)

2. Replacement batteries: Once you notice the performance level and vapour production begin to diminish, you will also need to replace the battery. Batteries on this type of kit last anything from two to three months (and sometimes longer, depending on use). Replacement batteries can be bought here

3. Replacement clearomizers and coils: The clearomizer tank used to house your e-liquid has a small coil within it. This coil will burn out after anything from a few days to two weeks. At this point you will notice that either hardly any vapour is being produced, or there is a burnt taste to your e-liquid. If your clearomizer is of the disposable variety, you will need to replace the whole unit at this point. If it has replaceable coils, you will need to buy a new pack of coils.

A list of disposable clearomizers can be found here

A list of clearomizers with replaceable coil option can be found here 


What is the warranty on this product?

This product comes with a 60 days warranty from date of order. However, this does not cover misuse, damage or standard wear and tear.
