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

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. This excludes e-liquids, clearomizers and disposables.


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. Click here to see our e-liquids range. If you have a high powered sub ohm kit, you'll want to use an e-liquid with a VG content of 60% or greater. If using a low-power kit you'll want to use liquids with more than 50% PG

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.


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).

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

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!!

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.
