Vaporfi Express Intro
In this article we review the Vaporfi express e-cig starter kit. The express kit is a mini cig-a-like e-cig that is roughly the same size as a normal cigarette. Many vapers start off using an e-cigarette/cig-a-like because they like its size and familiarity to a normal cigarette. So for those of you who are interested in purchasing this type of e-cig, we will let you know what we think of the Vaporfi Express starter kit below.

Who would the Vaporfi Express Kit be suited to?
As mentioned above the express kit is a mini e-cig meaning it is similar in size and looks to a normal cigarette. Many people when they begin vaping lean towards this style of e-cig, as it resembles something they are used to. Cig-a-likes are also easy to carry around with you and to take out partying or clubbing etc., as they fit neatly in your pocket. They are also a lot more discreet than larger ego or mod type e-cigs which appeals to a lot of people. So if this sounds like something you would want then by all means give the Vaporfi express starter kit a go.
If however you are more concerned about vapor production and taste as well as better battery life then I would consider looking at the Vaporfi Pro, Platinum Pro or Rocket. Whilst they are larger, they are much more satisfying and have a better track record of helping people stay away from normal cigarettes. It is a personal choice, so is up to you, but if aren’t concerned about size I would opt for something with more power and vapor. For those who really want a cig-a-like then let’s take a look at the Vaporfi Express Kit!
Looks, Size and Weight
The Vaporfi Express kit comes in a smart white finish. The express kit comes with two different sized batteries. The 180mAh battery is the smaller of the two and is roughly the size of a normal cigarette. The 280mAh battery is slightly longer in length, but not wider. The smaller battery is fairly lightweight with the longer one obviously being slightly heavier. Both batteries fit nicely in your pocket making them easy to take out and about with you.
The one thing that does strike me is that the batteries feel well built. They also have a “jewelled” end on them that lights up red when you are vaping it. Overall the express mini e-cigs look and feel great.
Vapor Production and Throat Hit
The vapor production was pretty good for a cig-a-like e-cig. The bigger battery has more power, so you obviously get more vapor from that one. I do like the small size of the smaller battery and it still produces decent amounts of vapor.
We used the menthol 1.2% nicotine cartridges and the taste was fantastic. The throat hit was good and if you are after a stronger nicotine level you can choose the 1.8% or alternatively the lighter 0.6% or even 0% nicotine options. There should be something there for all levels of smokers.
Flavors and Cartridges
Vaporfi offer the following flavors for their pre-filled carts:
- Classic Tobacco
- Mighty Menthol
- Cherry Crush
- Very Vanilla
- Chocolate Dream
We tried the Mighty Menthol and it was a very tasty menthol flavor. The great thing is if these flavors don’t appeal to you, you can choose the blank cartridges and fill it up with the e-liquid of your choice. Vaporfi do a great sample pack, to try some of their great tasting e-liquids. You can also mix your own blends of e-liquid with their custom blends option.
The one down side to the pre-filled and blank carts is that you cannot see how much e-liquid is left in them. If this is an issue then you can opt for the Mini Clear Clearomizers. These are tiny see through tanks like you would find on an ego. They fit nicely on the express batteries and produce great vapor – more so than the carts! This is a great option and something I would definitely recommend purchasing alongside the Vaporfi Express Kit.
The battery life on the smallest battery wasn’t the longest but comparable with other similar sized batteries on the market. This is to be expected from cig-a-likes and is one of the reasons I would recommend getting an ego type e-cig like the Pro or Platinum Pro as they last a lot longer. However some people want the feel of having a cigarette in their hands so will choose the Express Kit. The 2nd lengthier battery lasts longer and you will get around 400 puffs from one charge. The good thing with this kit, is that you have the two batteries. If one does run out, you have the other one to switch over to!
If you are looking for an electronic cigarette that looks and feels like a normal cigarette then the Vaporfi Express Kit is a very good option. You won’t have any complaints with this kit and it will look stylish and discreet when you vape it in public. The flavors are great and you have the blank carts as well as the Mini Clearomizers to choose from, should you want more flavor options!
If battery life and vapor production are things you are looking for from your e-cig and you don’t mind something a bit bigger, then I would check out the Vaporfi Pro, Platinum Pro or Rocket. If you want something really powerful and tasty then have a look at Vaporfi’s best-selling and our personal favourite the Rebel II.
