About the VIP E-Cigarette Starter Kit

VIP Starter Kit Taste:

The VIP e-cigarette starter kit produces a good 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 cigarette-style black 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 10 Motives and the Vype ePen 3, and with good reason. The VIP Starter Kit has good taste, good packaging & very competitively priced. 

1 x VIP E-Cig Battery
1 x USA Tobacco Refill 16mg

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.

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.

VIP Starter Kit Reviews

Very good,well pleased,although naturally heavier than a normal cigarette its still viable to hold like a cigarette which I find very good..It does the job for me,also excellent delivery,ordered 1 day and both orders received the next day..Tip top.

19th January 2020 - Anonymous

Having used this VIP electric cigarette due to worries of the liquid type, I lost it. Re ordered online 2 pm and received it next morning in the post. I highly recommend this type of cigarette as I feel like I have a cigarette in my hand and a packet of cigarettes in my bag..which somehow gives me the sense of still smoking

3rd January 2020 - Angela Fearnhead

This is the modern version of the original electric cigarette. The cartomizer is bigger therefore holds more juice, and the battery is bigger so it lasts longer. The tip glows red when you inhale and the amount of 'smoke' is similar to a cigarette. The overall length is probably similar to the '100s'. Find the tobacco juice that suits you, and you have the next best thing to the real thing!

30th September 2019 - Vic Valentine

Battery doesn't last long, although it is a neat cigarette looking design.

23rd September 2019 - Lindy Goodchild

Excellent product.. I have smoked regular for the past 62 years and hand rolled for probably the past 25 years. Having decided to finish because of the cost I stumbled upon this site. It is a very good and informative site with a wide range of products. I have already purchased this VIP kit and another kit both with extra cartomisers. I like this one because it is just like a real cigarette.
The taste and strength of the cartomisers are just how I would like a smoke to be. Also ElectricTobacconist do a first class service with their customer service and next day delivery

22nd June 2019 - Ivor Ackerley

I am a smoker with 50 years of umm, experience. A few years ago I tried a similar product but it was so expensive at that time, that it was no financial encouragement to quit smoking, so I went back to hand-rolled.
This product gave me a positive feeling right from the get-go, as it felt right in my hand and the cartomizers fit with other batteries I have lying around. It felt like a real smoke, and so far the charge of the battery seems good also. Now I am just waiting for my next pension payment and I'll be trying the larger orders out. BTW, delivery was faster than stated, and the packaging was excellent.

28th January 2019 - Steve Wilson

Just what I have been looking for small, easy to use and dose not produce lots of vape.

9th January 2019 - Anonymous

it is nothing really for me, but i bought it for my friend and he is pretty happy with it.
Good starter kit for beginners.

20th December 2018 - David Korazija

Starter Kit comes with everything you need. Best for beginners, or anyone really! Favourite vape I've tried out of quite a few. Easy to use and looks like a real cigarette.

I tried e.cigs when they first came out and thought they were rubbish, I was very impressed with this one, I have been a smoker 60 years and these come close to the real thing.

4th October 2018 - Raymond. Marsden

I never felt it as an e-cigarette, it is almost 95% similar to the real one, including the burning noise in creates when you suck in the vape, except the blue colour tip which has been purposefully made to that colour for obvious reasons..

best ecig kit in the world..........

5th August 2018 - Yashar Tofigh Benam

Recommended to my daughter and she is now on her way to quitting smoking. Would recommend to anyone trying to quit.

23rd March 2018 - Patricia Laurens

very good, bought as help to sop smoking and it is working. Was afraid of other not British made as we don't know what's in them. this is a good staff

15th February 2018 - Gabriela Legocka

Good value, well packaged and good cartridge flavour.

23rd September 2017 - Rob Nicol

Brilliant alternative to regular cigarettes, if you stick with them they can save you a lot of money.

2nd June 2017 - Jill Connolly

Will be satisfactory for now can you supply Menthol in these

10th April 2017 - David Thomas

Brilliant haven't had a fag in 6wks . I would recommend VIP

9th March 2017 - Rob Withers

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 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 but it have not smoke enought for 40 cigars. Just around 30. The batery duration is not very big but it is enought. I recomend to have 2 batteries.
