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 VIP Standard Starter Kit 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. 

Never leave batteries unattended whilst charging. Never charge for more than four hours at a time.

1 x Stainless Steel 1100mAh Photon Battery (providing up to 1100 puffs per charge)
2 x V5/H2 Clearomisers 
1 x USB Charger
1 x Instruction manual

COVID-19 Service Updates:

We have reinstated the £10 free delivery threshold

We have also changed the cut-off time for same-day dispatch 4pm to 3pm as another short-term measure.

Due to a huge increase in demand, there is a queue system in place to help reduce the stress of our workforce whilst maintaining the same high level of service. Our development team continue to closely monitor the situation and are making adjustments where necessary.

We are aware of some customers getting pushed to the back of the queue instead of being let in to order and are working on a fix.

Due to a huge increase in orders we are unable to guarantee all orders placed before 3pm will be dispatched today. There may be a 24 hour delay to the dispatch of your order.

DPD now are now offering contact-free delivery and drivers will no longer ask you to sign handheld devices. To ensure delivery, DPD Drivers may leave your order with a neighbour if you are not present.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

What is Electric Tobacconist Returns Policy?

The Electric Tobacconist Ltd abides by the Distance Selling Act (2000). 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.

What's the difference between a vape kit, a vape pen, an all-in-one and a pod mod?

Names are often manufacturer-led, but in general, there's not really any difference between a vape pen and a vape kit, except a vape pen tends to look more like a pen! 

A pod mod tends to be the more modern version of the above, whereas vape kits and vape pens have clearomizer tanks that need refilling, pod mods have pods (capsules) that are pre-filled (either by the user, or as they come) and are taken off and replaced as and when needed.

All-In-One (AIO) kits are similar to vape pens but rather than using removable tanks, the battery and tank is one combined unit.

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.


Can I use this kit with high-strength nicotine e-liquids?

Yes, when used with coils above 1.0 ohm, this e-cigarette can be used with e-liquids that contain higher amounts of nicotine (i.e above 12mg).

VIP Photon Starter Kit Reviews

Like this vape, however battery doesn’t last long and clear tank looks a little tarnished after less than two weeks use - positives nice vape to use, easy to fill

16th December 2017 - Lisa Homer

I was really impressed with my purchase Until it started making noises and spitting warm liquid into my mouth. I tried the spare attachment and it's the same. Would not recommend based on this

13th April 2017 - Laura's Mcnaughton

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!!

5th September 2016 - NINA WALKER

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

30th August 2016 - Sara Pearson

bought for someone else but have had one myself really good quality lasts a long time &great value.

28th May 2016 - Deborah Lavery

Very easy to use and feels just like smoking a cigarette. Charge lasted all day and re-charge was within an hour

8th April 2016 - Cherie Cartwright

Very easy to use and arrived quickly. Definitely recommend to those wishing to give up smoking

20th March 2016 - Tracey O'Neill

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

3rd March 2016 - Lloyd Fabes

Great Product Recomended.

13th February 2016 - Pamela Price
