When Vaporfi got its start their selection of vaporizers was small, but the idea to grow was already there. Every so often they launched a new product; a slightly tweaked product; or added a different flavor of e juice.
Before long they were taking out products that did not sell but replacing them with high-tech items and even branching out into herbal vaporizers. Today, Vaporfi carries one of the widest selections of vaping equipment of any American brand.
All the E Cigarettes
Their lineup begins with an Express; the Vaporfi version of a cigalike. Next, they have the Pro: not much harder to use than the Express but more varied with its assorted colors. Their Edge, Vice, Rocket, and Rebel are all intermediate devices with the Vox out on top as their most advanced e juice vaporizer. Add the Orbit and the Boom for alternative vaping. Many of the parts sold at Vaporfi (tanks, batteries, RDAs, coils) are interchangeable with each other and even products from other companies.
All the E Juices
I won’t list the flavors here: there are too many. Instead, let’s just touch on the concept of Vaporfi E Juice. Sure: you can buy pre-made liquid and even pre-filled cartomizers for the Express. There are also two thick e juices for sub ohm vaping with an Edge or Vox II. The most popular notion at Vaporfi, however, is to make a custom e juice. It’s a challenge to try and come up with a flavor no one else has ever thought of and that is still possible with the thousands of potential combinations out there.
The lowest price you pay at Vaporfi for a starter kit is $29.99 and that’s for the Express set. A Vox II Mod bundle, Vaporfi’s most expensive set, is priced $199.99. Pay as little as $15.99 for a 30-ml bottle of e juice. The clearance section also introduces consumers to some excellent bargains.

Spotlight: the Edge Starter Kit
This is one of the newest vaporizers at Vaporfi; a cylindrical sub-ohm unit with an 1800-mAh battery, 100W maximum output, a 7-ml tank with green O-rings for color contrast, a sleek shape, and a wide-mouth stainless steel mouthpiece. The tank manages 0.2 ohms resistance or 0.5 ohms according to the atomizer head you install.
Adjust airflow as recommended depending on the wattage you choose: small for up to 30W, the middle hole for up to 50W, and the largest hole when you are vaping at 80W. The price is $129.99 which includes a charger, charging adapter, an installed atomizer coil, one spare, replacement glass, and a drip tip plus the battery.
Spotlight: the Vice Starter Kit
This is another of Vaporfi’s new vaporizers, a little like the eGo One from JoyeTech but with a single rectangular window. Though similarly shaped to The Edge which gave you 1800 mAh, The Vice offers 2200 mAh power. It attaches to a small tank of 2.5 ml. There are two air vents for cloud chasing, two atomizer heads (1.2 ohms and 0.5 ohms), a charging set, tank, and battery in your bundle costing $99.99.
Spotlight: E Juice
Vaporfi now carries three lines of e liquid known as their standard, Reserve, and Grand Reserve collections. The first contains a 70/30 or 50/50 propylene glycol/vegetable glycerin (PG/VG) blend (thin or balanced for mid- to low-ohm atomizer coils).
Grand Reserve liquids contain 60% VG. The ratio of ingredients in Reserve e liquids is 30/70 PG/VG. Standard e juices are bottled in plastic but the other two are bottled in glass, always in an FDA-approved facility. Vaporfi E Juice is made in the United States.
Reserve flavors are Summer Lovin’ (lemon raspberry), Northern Lights (melon, berry, and guava), Moroccan Gold (vanilla tobacco with coconut), Monkey Business (creamy banana), Decadence (creamy hazelnut chocolate), and Black Velvet (cherry cola). Reserve flavors cost $19.99 for 30 ml.
In the Grand Reserve ($21.99 for 30 ml) we have Catch Ya Latte and Pineapple Pow (self-explanatory), Rainbow Custard (strawberry tangerine candy with Crème Anglaise), Meringue O Tang (doughnuts with meringue and lemon custard), Island Frost (blueberry coconut and pineapple champagne with mint and lime), plus Cloud Candy (cotton candy and gummy bear jelly).
Reviews at Vaporfi
I have always been impressed with the review policy at Vaporfi which sees a wide variety of comments from customers. They aren’t always 100% in favor of a flavor or a product. Vaporfi airs clients’ real thoughts and views, or so it seems, and they also respond to customer complaints.
That’s how you know this firm at least tries to make the business all about customers, not just having fun behind the counter and in their R&D department. That they do have fun is a given since their catalogue is fun and impressive to behold.
Service at Vaporfi
There are two ways to shop here: in person at one of their many brick-and-mortar stores or online. More dedicated shops are opening as well, so retail is spreading from Florida out to the rest of America. Online shopping is easy, but there is a shipping cost to consider.
Go to customer support if you have questions that aren’t answered on the website, if that’s even possible. Their helpful FAQ section and instructional videos give you most of the information you could possible want including details about their e liquid that many e juice makers fail to supply.
I feel confident about shopping with Vaporfi. They are transparent and available. While prices sometimes leave a bitter taste in my mouth compared with the prices of similar equipment sold by other brands, at least I know this company will answer my queries and usually turns out a solid product.
An atomizer known as an RDA or dripping atomizer is designed for use with thick juices which are dripped onto the atomizer deck a little at a time. You don’t fill a tank and keep puffing until the liquid runs out. RDA liquids are known to be generally thick owing to their high percentage of vegetable glycerin(high VG).
They are perfect for use with sub ohm mods like the SMOK Alien or VaporShark DNA. Tank atomizers with sub-ohm capacity were also designed for this purpose. How do you spot a good dripping or cloud chasing e-juice from the hundreds of available labels?
Top RDA Juices
Everyone’s list is a little bit different from everyone else’s but it’s likely your top 10 would not include liquids made by mini cig companies (except maybe Halo Purity or Apollo), cheap single-flavor blends from your e cig vendor, or Chinese juice.
Overall, you can expect a gourmet liquid to be ideal for dripping and any juice which is mostly sweet could be a good fit for this purpose too.
Expect a lot of e-juices for dripping to contain cream, custard, or baked goods in the profile, and even alcohol flavors too. VG carries the sweetness of a flavor better than PG but isn’t as great for getting that hit at the back of your throat which is associated with tobacco styles and propylene glycol.
Gourmet finds include Space Jam, Cosmic Fog, Gemini, Alice in Vapeland, and Five Pawns. There are loads of others too: Villain Vapors, Ruckus, and Kind E-Juice are just a few other options out of dozens.
Best E Juice For Dripping and Cloud Chasing
Firebrand’s regular line has been given quite a boost by a selection of eight high-VG flavors of which one, surprisingly, are tobacco varieties. We see this too rarely in the gourmet side of the industry, so it’s great when someone embraces the traditional, comforting flavors of pipe tobacco et al. You will find tobacco in Crixus, a nutty style of e juice.
Daredevil is a lot like Carnage by ANML, another great dripping juice. Their other flavor is Looper: similar to a fruity breakfast cereal. Both of them feature carnivorous beasts on their labels and there is hope they will come up with something new in the near future.
At CRFT, they are only interested in high-quality ingredients and come up with unique mixtures like Trail Mix. This one really tastes like seeds, nuts, and fruit. Their Strawberry Blonde is another winner bringing to mind thoughts of creamy strawberry.
At Namber, they came up with the Epiclouds line developed specially for cloud chasers. Pick up strawberry candy (Strawberry Circus) or Doughnut Pounder (glazed donut). Try the unique Glacier Banana in which you will discover what happens when menthol and banana unite.
At The Standard, vapologists like to keep their clients in the dark. You don’t even know what you are getting with some flavors. It takes a few brave souls to try out juices and report their findings in reviews. Alternatively, you could wind up with one of the mystery types in your subscription box. If so, see this as an opportunity to venture into the unknown. As for Tater, that’s a chocolate style unlike anything your mini cig cartomizer refill could ever produce. Do you like Banana without menthol? Curious Jorge would be just the ticket.
Cream-based juices are meant to be thick on your palate as though you really are drinking cream. The skill required to create this impression is impressive and they have lots of skill over and over at Vaping Birdy. Try an Empress Penguin or an Emperor Penguin. The Emperor is straight-up condensed milk. His Empress, being sweeter and more feminine, adds strawberries to hers. Bald Eagle blends toffee, chocolate, and coffee into a rich, bold e liquid. Try Crème a la Vanille or, in English, vanilla cream.
Melon Boba, Sour Burma, and Baja Breeze are all fruity, but they do not lack anything when it comes to clouds. At Goodlife, they also create several tobacco e juices so the tobacco fan doesn’t have to give up his favorite flavor to enjoy clouds. He can enjoy the best of both worlds.
Here is one of the most widely acclaimed e juices in the country, but not one carried by the same huge list of vendors as, say, Five Pawns. A frustrating lack of local supply might mean you have not tried this vapor juice before, but Adirondack makes excellent fruity e liquid that is well worth saving for a special occasion (like launching or adding a new box mod to your collection).
Spotting Good Juice
Making clouds is something you can do with any device using any juice, but some are wispy and some are meteorological phenomena. It is always best to go with a juice that has a high level of vegetable glycerin so your clouds are sure to thicken up no matter what type of mod you use from eGo to 50W box.
Several companies supply dripping lines side-by-side with their regular e juices. VaporFi, for instance, has created their Artisan e juice for this purpose and to cater to a cloud-chasing audience. These clients would probably be using the Rebel II tube mod or Vox.
Charlie Noble’s Admiral’s Reserve was made for this purpose and some entire brands are devoted to the sub-ohm culture. The label will indicate that this is a dripping juice or perfect for RDAs. Velvet Vapors offers the choice: select natural, regular, or vegetable glycerin e liquids. Most of their flavors are available in any format.
A number of companies provide custom juice blending and the option to change your propylene glycol (PG)/vegetable glycerin (VG) base. Indicate if you want all PG, Max-VG, or a level in-between. Expect RDA e liquids to be bottled in glass, to be made in smaller batches than the usual stuff, and to cost a bit more than regular liquids. If you paid about $12 for 15 ml, that’s average.
From one vape store to another the definition of “starter kits” differs. At online cigalike shops such as Green Smoke, White Cloud, and South Beach Smoke these refer to kits for beginners; people who are literally just starting to vape. They might have barely given up cigarettes or still be smoking some of the time. At other stores these refer to kits which help a person get started with any sort of device, so they have all or at least some of the equipment required to operate and recharge a vaporizer at any level. Here are some configurations you could find.
This is the real newbie’s first set and it has to come with three things: a USB charger, a battery, and flavor cartridges. When you first start out, a starter set is also a guide to vaping, in a sense. You know that if stuff is in the box you are expected to use it somehow whereas later, when you know what you’re doing, some things go without saying.
Certain people would also say that a beginners’ kit should come with a second battery and an AC adapter and that a real starter kit contains at least 5 cartridges. You don’t really get a feel for what vaping is like and how convenient it can be without the second battery which provides a chance to learn timing and preparation. When your 3- or 4-hour battery runs out, you realize how much you need battery number 2.
You should probably go for a kit with at least 5 (but preferably 10) cartridges since they are used up so quickly. Some bundles also contain a case, a portable charging device, and a lanyard; a car charging adapter, perhaps a USB e cig, or maybe a disposable electronic cigarette. Couples’ kits simply double all of the basic equipment so two people can learn to vape side-by-side.
Prices for all of this gear vary so widely and customer preferences are so different it is hard to nail down the best price. V2 Cigs provides numerous options including a set that comes with refillable cartridges or tanks plus e juice. Halo provides one of the best value kits for their G6 and a lot of colors plus the option to select refillable cartridges, but juice is extra (though high quality and inexpensive). Smokeless Image probably sells the cheapest sets around. A few other brands of note include Vaporfi, Fin, 21st Century Smoke, and Vapor4Life.
An eGo cigarette goes beyond cigalikes to provide many hours of vaping per charge. Instead of recharging three or four times daily, a person can probably manage to recharge just once around midday with a 650-mAh eGo battery.
You might get away with just one battery and a single tank in this case as long as recharging can be done while you continue to vape, but that’s not always the case. You could revert to your cigalike while recharging an eGo. Many people do. There are also 1100-mAh sets plus several containing variable voltage e cigs and lots of color choices.
Top-value eGo starter kits are packaged in a zipper case with a syringe or dripper bottle for easily refilling the clearomizer also included. Usually, if there are two batteries, two clearomizers are also in this package plus a USB charging cable. The addition of a bottle of e juice sweetens the deal. Halo’s Triton is a good example. The Kanger EVOD and Joyetech eGo are two more. Vaporfi supplies the Pro series as their eGo offering.
Clearomizers could be disposable or come with replaceable atomizer heads. They have built-in or removable drip tips and are usually made from polycarbonate rather than glass. Their single coil configuration is best used with low-viscosity e juice (high-propylene glycol) and flavors that don’t crack or cloud tanks such as low-acid fruit flavors, some desserts, tobacco, and light menthol.
While vapers might turn to an eGo as their first electronic cigarette in preference to the dainty cigalike, they are unlikely to choose an Advanced Personal Vaporizer (APV) as their first step. In spite of that fact, vape shops and manufacturers will still refer to their advanced “starter kits” in order to indicate that you are not only buying a battery; you buy a whole package here which is why the price is higher.
In this kit you do not need a second battery since the 1100-, 1300-, or 2200-mAh battery will remain charged for an entire day if you remember to replenish it overnight. The battery should be bundled with a clear or glass tank capable of low but not sub-ohm resistance plus some extra atomizer heads, a USB cable, maybe a case, and possibly some e juice for good measure.
Really Advanced Starter Kits
Often these are referred to as “mini kits” comprised of the smallest versions of certain hardware. Examples are the Kanger Subox Mini Kit with their small tank. These kits contain a vaporizer base and battery, if that is not already built in, plus a cable and a tank. A few kits are comprised of all-in-one vaporizers (battery base and tank). Many other kits are just the vaporizer plus a battery and a USB cable without a tank. At this level, e juice is rarely included although some shops encourage vendors to customize their own kits to include adapters, extra tanks, spare parts, and e liquid.
Starter Kit Savings
Another reason people buy starter kits, besides convenience, is that they usually save money. Whether you just started, have picked up your first eGo, are on to adjustable airflow tanks, or are into sub-ohm cloud chasing mods, a kit costs less than individual parts bought all at once or over time. Not only is shipping added to small orders in most cases (you get free shipping at a threshold of $50 to $100) but a discount is applied to bundles automatically.
As a true IVG company, it was only a matter of time before South Beach Smoke introduced new vaporizers to complement their cigalikes and e juice. The Air has been offered for some months (South Beach Smoke’s version not to be confused with the squashed Vaporfi Air), but the company must have seen it was time to give customers more choice. Now you can jump from a cigalike to one of four intermediate products.
Are you in the market for more power, but also hopeful of finding an e cig that does not look like a cigarette?
Would pretty colors brighten your day, or do you prefer solid black or silver? No matter who you are, South Beach Smoke offers a suitable style. Their four vaporizers are the Storm, Thunder, Curve, and Air.
The Storm and Curve are eGo style batteries. Buy the Thunder if you want to exert control over voltage. The Air is a small, portable device. Like a lot of eGos, the Curve and Storm provide the widest array of colors.
Prices for these four starter kits range from $29.99 to $99.99, but power is also variable: from 350 mAh to 1300 mAh.
For $49.99, your kit provides all the pieces needed to get started plus an extra atomizer so your tank can remain in use longer. This starter bundle comes with one tank, one battery, a USB charger, and a wall charger.
Colors for the cartomizer include subdued and stealthy black, white, and stainless steel. South Beach Smoke offers yellow, pink, red, purple, blue, green, or camouflage as well. When you buy extra batteries, these colors are also available.
But for the starter kit you choose black, stainless steel, or pink. Elect to add an LCD screen for $5 more and you can also upgrade the battery from 650 mAh to 1100 mAh for $3.
With these additions, your package will cost up to $57.99.
This is a stylish, feminine product with a slight curve to the battery and a more pronounced curve up top.
Choose black, red, purple, blue, green, orange, or silver for the cartomizer and the battery, or mix and match.
This is a long 650-mAh battery measuring 100.25 mm without its tank, so not the stealthiest of devices.
Your Curve atomizer has a resistance value of 2.2 ohm.
You get 1300 mAh of variable voltage power with a black or stainless steel Thunder.
It measures just 98.5 mm in length without the tank.
In contrast to the slinky Curve, a Thunder e cig is bold and straight.
This is the smallest South Beach Smoke set up measuring just 4″ assembled. For $29.99, you buy a complete e cig with a USB/wall charging kit. You’ve seen this one on their website for a while and there are lots of reviews to help you make a decision.
An Air starter kit contains the small battery but this can be swapped later on for a 650 mAh or 900 mAh battery. Prices are $14.99, $22.99, and $24.99. Add a tank for $9.99. The Clear tank for use with any of these vaporizers costs $9.99. You might prefer the enclosed tank with viewing window for the Storm ($14.99) or the Curve clear tank ($9.99). A Thunder tank is your largest and most expensive option at $34.99, and the battery is pricey at $39.99.
Pay a variety of prices for various battery sizes. You can also see what each of these vaporizers would look like if you mixed and matched pieces to create your own vaporizer. South Beach Smoke offers a “Build Your Own Vaporizer” program which gives an accurate picture of your customized build complete with the colors you chose.
It looks like South Beach Smoke is set to compete with Vaporfi, their sister company. The Storm resembles a Pro by Vaporfi with a few different colors like the camouflage option. Kits are priced the same too. Their Curve lends elegance to eGo options which is not present in the Vaporfi catalogue, dominated as it is by futuristic designs.
A Thunder e cig costs too much for what it is: just a single-battery kit with variable voltage. Combined separately, the tank and battery are priced about $75 but you can do much better by shopping around. What you will like most about the Thunder is looks: it’s a solid piece; masculine and substantial looking, though reviews haven’t started coming in to say so. These are brand new products.
IVG, generally, and South Beach Smoke, specifically, are known for their highly-rated products. South Beach Smoke was one of the first e cigs on the market and is still going strong. If their vaporizers are as reliable as their cigalikes, business will boom. Not only have their products been reliable but South Beach Smoke now demonstrates that they can be relied up on to follow vapers into the next phase of vaping.
With American e liquid to fill your tanks, South Beach Smoke customers will no longer have to shop offsite for anything. They can get their tanks, batteries, charging devices, atomizers, and juice all in one place and keep adding to their reward points.
Halo Cigs seemed uninterested in making a decision to create more advanced electronic cigarettes for a long time. They moved forward from their G6 cigalike to offer a new Triton eGo: new a few years ago, that is.
Now that device is among the aging has-beens of the e cig universe. It appeared that Halo was never going to take any further steps forward, which was fine for fans.
Halo still created a great product and they didn’t have to join the likes of South Beach Smoke and Vaporfi, building numerous devices.
Then they surprised us all: Halo is the proud creator of two new systems. They recently introduced the Tracer and the Reactor. Today we will be talking about the Halo Cigs Tracer vaporizer.
No More E Cigs
We could call the Tracer an e cig but that might give readers a false first impression and belittle what this machine really is.
An e cig is smaller and weaker than the 2600-mAh Tracer APV, a device, made from 304 stainless steel. The Tracer is smart, modern, non-corrosive, and clean. The Tracer’s 2600-mAh battery could last you a day or a weekend depending on how much you vape.
The design is similar to that of a Rocket at Vaporfi or an eGo One. This is a bolt-style device: a heavy-looking cylinder, at least in pictures. It is often a surprise that these larger e cigs are so small. The battery is a one-button device without a screen or extra elements; very simple to operate. It comes in black or silver.
Tracer Starter Kit at Halo Cigs
A starter kit for this product is available in one configuration and costs $59.99 as opposed to $89.99 for a Rocket. You also receive free e juice from Halo and that’s not something they are handing out with starter kits at Vaporfi, so this is a great deal. Choose from one of many V-Type High-vegetable glycerin 30-ml e juices like Black Calico, Tribeca, or Kringles Curse (0 to 12 mg of nicotine per/ml).
A Tracer bundle comes with a tank as well. This tank holds up to 3.5 ml of e liquid and is made from a mixture of stainless steel and borosilicate glass. Airflow adjustment is made possible by a valve in the bottom cap so you can change how much resistance there is when you draw. Resistance affects cloud density and temperature as well. A sub-ohm DC head (dual coil) lets you use viscous e juice and blow major vapor rings.
Borosilicate glass and 304 stainless steel are expensive components but necessary to maintain a high level of purity and cleanliness. Nothing will interfere with the flavor of your vapor.
Buy Individual Parts
A tank for the Tracer vaporizer is priced $24.99 on its own and a battery costs $29.99 Put that together and you would spend $53.98 just to purchase these two pieces. Add e juice and chargers and your outlay would be a lot more than the $60 price tag listed above for a bundle, demonstrating one reason why starter kits are popular.
Five-packs of replaceable coils cost $13.50. The USB cable is $3.99. Next add $7.99 for an AC adapter. Overall, this is an affordable system to run and replacement costs aren’t bad. Each 7-ml bottle of ordinary e juice costs $5.99 and there are the V-Type ones costing a little more. Halo made a classy move by adding a bottle to their starter kit as a default. There’s just one kit too: that makes the selection process simpler.
Halo Cigs Summary
Have some patience with Halo Cigs. As a result of recent changes, their website is going through teething pains. Pages load slowly and there are some problems finding details about certain things. They will get their act together; Halo always does right by their customers, prospective and current.
