About VIP E-Cigarette Starter Kit:

VIP Starter Kit Taste:

The VIP e-cigarette starter kit produces a healthy amount of vapour, a smooth taste and a good throat hit which gets stronger the higher nicotine level you choose.  

VIP Starter Kit Packaging & Design:

VIP starter kits comes in a very cigarette-like silver box, identical in size to that of a traditional pack of 20 cigarettes. To the untrained eye, this e cig box would indeed look like a pack of cigarettes if put with your wallet and keys on the table of a pub, for example - with a big benefit of e-cigarettes being that you wouldn't then have to leave the pub to vape your VIP e cig!

Overall VIP Starter Kit Verdict:

This is one of the most popular products of its type on the UK market, along with the likes of the Vype eStick and the Gamucci Starter Kit, and with good reason. The VIP Starter Kit has good taste, good packaging & very competitively priced. 

The VIP Starter Pack contains:

  • 2 x refills cartridges in a 'Mixed Nicotine Level' (1 x 16mg & 1 x 24mg USA Tobacco Flavour)
  • 1 x USB Charger
  • 1 x Battery

Does this starter kit come with everything I need to start me off?

Yes. The kit contains everything you need to start vaping once you have charged your starter kit (including a USB charger). You may want to tick the box to add a UK mains plug, though.


How do I know when the battery needs recharging?

When the LED on the end of your e-cigarette battery starts flashing, it's time to recharge it. Most e-cigarette batteries of this type should last around 2-3 hours before needing a recharge, but as the battery gets older the timeframe may be reduced. 

How do I know when the battery is fully charged?

The LED on the tip should go out. This usually happens after around two hours. However, you should never charge the battery overnight or for more than four hours in one go.


How do I maintain my cigarette-style kit?

Cigarette-style kits of this type require the following upkeep:

1. Cartridge refills - one cartridge can last anything from one day to one week depending on how much you use your e-cigarette. Once they run out, you can buy new cartridges here

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


What is the warranty on this product?

This product comes with a 30 day warranty from the date of order. However, this does not cover misuse, damage or standard wear and tear.


What is Electric Tobacconist® Returns Policy?

If, once you have purchased items from us, you decide you no longer want them, then you have 28 calendar days in which to return them and we will refund them in full within 28 days of the cancellation date (including any postage and packing paid) as long as the packaging remains unopened.

Product Reviews

I found this strength very much compared to my 'old' Cigarettes.

18th February 2017 - Jill Connolly

All the starter kits are great, long lasting and taste good

17th February 2017 - Toni Morgan

purchased after reading other good reviews, this is first time have bought an e-cigarette glad i chose this brand as i am finding it extremly good, already cutting back on proper cigarettes

3rd October 2016 - robert fleming

Excellent value for money as the kit contains a battery, 2 cartridges and a usb. However, the pack itself is useless.........you can't store a fitted battery and cartridge as it's too small....would also benefit greatly from being rechargeable to allow you to recharge on the go.

2nd July 2016 - Janet Colgan

i have only been using my e cigarette for a couple of days as yet. it does appear to be a very realistic piece of kit. in the past couple of days i have smoked very few real cigarettes, and found the e cigarette seems to satisfy my cravings for the real thing which can only be a good thing. my hopes are to gradually reduce the strength of my refills, and hopefully quit completely. the value is good too, in comparison to a pack of cigarettes.

1st September 2015 - christine pearce

I must admit the build o them is good and nice value for the price but the taste was awful, so bad I returned the whole thing. I took a few puffs and felt quite ill from the taste. I will try another one.

17th August 2015 - Chad Slater

Very good product. The flavor is very good and it really have smoke enought for 40 cigars.

31st October 2014 - Vitor Alves

After trying a couple of different e cigs I have settled on this one. Battery life is quite good but I will be ordering spares for when I'm unable to charge it. Refills are good, Also good that there are a variety of flavoured refills, haven't tried them all yet but the VIP is definitely my fave e cig so far. the service is really good with next day delivery.

26th July 2014 - Sue

Excellent kit that lives up to claims.Service is excellent.
Have since tried and prefer the Virginia Rolling Tobacco flavour.

12th April 2014 - Les

Great starter kit. Have since ordered a spare battery to keep at home and some more cartomisers. Amazingly easy to use and has probably saved me £50 in the last week alone. Would defiantly reccomend.

9th April 2014 - Dave

This starter kit has everything you need to quit smoking and is so easy to assemble

9th April 2014 - Pat Anderson

On the whole I was pleased with this product. Delivery time was very quick and assembly about as simple as possible. The flavour did not quite reach what I would expect from a 'normal' tobacco cigarette, but Is still the best option if you are looking for an e- alterntative to conventional cancer sticks. Overall I'm quite happy with the purchase and will likely make another order soon.

1st April 2014 - gsblank

Very pleased with pack although not too convenient to carry a filter and battery made up. Decided to buy the case which is lovely. Delivery is very prompt!

27th March 2014 - Tricia Mowat Slater

I am cutting down with the aid of this product.I find the 24mg to strong.the 1.6 is fine .to start I am smoking a VIP every other time and slowly cutting down. I would add this Company has very fast service and its free post and value are first class. would recommend.

26th March 2014 - P Jones

This is the first e-cig hat i tried, and so far after 3 weeks I am not smoking cigarettes, neither i fell to do it. Very pleased with my purchase

24th March 2014 - Alfonso

VIP is the first e-cigarette that I have tried and it is excellent. The closest substitute for a cigarette that I have experienced. As far as I am concerned, i don't need to try any others! Thank you.

20th March 2014 - Sharon Antoniou

I started these January & haven't had a cig in 2 months.
So I am really pleased

Would recommend these

20th March 2014 - Stehanie Blake

This was my first E-Cigarette. I've chosen VIP simply because it's well know for its price and battery life.

20th March 2014 - Lukas

Good Product and excellent all round service.

19th March 2014 - Steven Howard

19th March 2014 - Pat Anderson
