Vaper Empire is an Australian e-cigarette company that was established in 2011 and since then, it has steadily grown and expanded into the globe’s many developing e-cigarette markets, including those in the US and the UK, as well as throughout Australasia. Vaper Empire’s overall look comes across as generally sleek and classy, and not a little flashy, even, with its cool black boxes and black and chrome products. Vaper empire’s founder said in a December 2014 interview with au.snipsnip that 2015 would be the company’s “second incarnation”, so let’s take a look and see what the reincarnation has meant for vapers thus far!
Vaper Empire E-Liquid Flavors
This is an area where Vaper Empire has a real reputation already. The company’s e-liquids are created in the UK and there is an impressive range to choose from. All of the flavours I tried were rich and well expressed, and, like several other reviews I have seen, I was especially taken with some of the flavours in their Boutique Range, which includes such flavours as Tropical Heat, Fruit Freeze, Custard and Cream, Lime Zinger, Salted Caramel and Rainbow Sherbet. I found the Custard and Cream especially satisfying as it actually tasted like real custard and cream! The custard flavour was really, satisfyingly intense-and realistic. Their Artisans’ Range is also interesting, with its fascinatingly eclectic range of 13 flavours. The Spring in Siberia blend really was an artic minty blast! Intensely refreshing.
Vaper Empire Vapor production
Vapor production is full and satisfying, with a good blend of taste, flavor and smoke. Not too intense, but enough to get a relly satisfying vape going and enough of a throat hit to make it enjoyable but not over the top. All in all, a well-balanced, pleasurable experience.
Ease of Use
There are certainly some nice touches here, with a thoughtful “translation” of nicotine strength-number of cigarettes equivalence which is available via the website. The products are generally as easy as out-of-the-box ready-to-use, no problems at all. Vaper Empire’s manuals are incredibly clear and easy to understand and their instructions for using the devices ensure that you are unlikely to have any problems with using them.
Battery & Charging
Charging is an extremely simple and straightforward matter, especially with the Vantage Series, where you simply plug the battery into the USB cable’s Vaper empire port, which was no problem at all to work out. Perhaps one slight drawback with charging (indeed with many Vaper Empire devices) is that Vaper Empire doesn’t seem inclined towards long USB cables, with the exception of the one provided in the Viva Starter Kit. however, whether or not this is a good or a bad thing will largely depend on how you intend to use your device. The battery is a 650mAh, which, by rights, should not really be able to deliver enough of a throat hit for those of use who require ours powerful and strong. However, somehow, this battery more than manages to do the job, and the hit is superb.
Charging with the Viva Kit is also simple, via simply connecting the battery to the USB cable and then directly into either the wall or your computer. As mentioned, the longer cable provided with this kit does afford you that greater degree of portability.
Vaper Empire Accessories
The accessories range on the website isn’t perhaps as extensive as some, but the quality is good, nonetheless. Choose from deluxe carry cases, which has protective webbing to keep everything in place, replacement batteries, wall chargers, USB charger cables and battery stems.
Vaper-Empire Starter Kits
First, is the Vantage Starter Kit, which is a simple, compact kit, ideal for any novice vaper. The kit includes 2 650mAh rechargeable chrome batteries, 2 clearomizers, a USB power cable, a concise users’ manual. An Australian standard USB power adapter and a bottle of e-liquid (10ml).
A slight step up is the Vantage Deluxe Starter Kit, which features the same stylish and compact device and specs as the Vantage kit, only with the addition of a carry case and 3 10ml bottles of e-liquid.
Next comes the V Pack Starter Kit, with its stylish-looking black and orange design. The kit comes complete with a portable charging case. 2 180mAh lithium Ion battery, 5 non-tobacco cartomizers, a user manual, and a USB charging lead.
Finally, we have the very stylish Viva Titanium Starter Kit, which offers excellent, long-lasting vaping thanks to its titanium coil. It comes complete with 2 rechargeable 360mAh batteries, 2 cartomizers, a USB power cable, an Australian standard power adapter, a user manual, a carry case and 3 10ml bottles of e-liquid.
The Vibe Mod
This is Vaper Empire’s newest vape pen, and it’s nothing if not impressive. The Vibe has a 2000mAh battery, which is practically unprecedented in pen-style devices. A 2000mAh battery will keep you vaping for days on end, so you can grab your pen in the morning and be set for the rest of the day. On top of that, the tank has a 4ml e-juice capacity, so you won’t be refilling every couple of hours. With spec’s like these and a gunmetal alloy design sure to wow all of your friends, The Vibe will be hard to resist. Best of all though, this is an all-in-one device, so forget about purchasing extra batteries or accessories. You can take her out of the box and start vaping as soon as you fill her up. Plus, the battery charges inside the device, so you won’t have to use any external chargers. No matter what kind of vaper you are, you are going to love The Vibe. Not only is it sleek and sophisticated, but it is one of the more powerful pens we’ve seen on the market.
