Vaporin Electronic Cigarette Review
Only launched a few months ago, Vaporin already has a pretty lofty line of e-cigarette products complete with starter kits, disposables, eGo style devices, clearomizers and e-liquid. The brand joined the likes of several big name e-cigarette brands by setting up shop in Miami, FL back in June. But can they compete with names like V2 Cigs, Green Smoke and South Beach Smoke? We reviewed their “On-The-Go” Starter Kit and Gold disposable e-cig to find out.

- God taste and throat hit
- Large selection of kits and accessories
- Competitively priced starter kits
- Short battery life on disposables
- Expensive pricing on Vaporizer kits
- Limited flavor options for starter kits
Bottom LineThere really isn't anything special or game-changing about the Vaporin On-The-Go Starter Kit or their disposables. However, if you're in a pinch for money, the kit might get you through a few rough days. I've vaped plenty worse e-cigs.
Vaporin Electronic Cigarette Review: Our Opinion
Vaporin On-The-Go Starter Kit
Vaporin’s “On-The-Go” starter kit looks pretty similar to a pack of cigarettes you wouldn’t normally buy. The box is two-toned in color, with a red wave on the bottom covering a black background. Inside is a micro foam tray with three slots, one for the USB charger, another for the battery and a third holds the cartridge. Also tucked between the tray and the box is a certificate of inspection and a handy user guide.
The battery itself is solid white in color and has a small Vaporin logo printed near the base and a grey tip that glows green when in use. It has a glossy coating which looks nice but might not be the best finish for tactility. Like many cartridges of e-cigs I’ve reviewed, Vaporin’s e-cig looks similar to a cigarette butt. It’s a dark orange in color with white and grey speckles and is printed with the flavor. Together, cartridge and battery are the size of a “100” style cigarette.
Vaporin Gold Disposable E-Cigs
Packaging for the Vaporin Gold disposable is very similar to that of the On-The-Go kit. Aside from the box being about half the size, the tray inside is cardboard instead of foam and has one opening containing the disposable e-cig. And the Vaporin Gold disposable e-cig has an appearance very similar to that of an NJOY King electronic cigarette.
Flavors and Vapor
Between the two disposables and On-The-Go starter kit I tested, there were only two flavors to review. The starter kit came with a tobacco flavored cartridge in 18mg nicotine strength. It’s a pretty standard tobacco flavor with ample vapor and a good throat hit. On the plus side, it doesn’t have that fake sweet taste some tobacco flavors give off. But it’s still missing that smokiness quality I enjoy in a tobacco cartridge.
The tobacco Gold disposable has virtually the exact same taste, albeit with a little less vapor and significantly less throat kick. Its menthol counterpart, however, had quite the unique taste. Whereas most menthols pretty much taste the same to me, this one has almost a tea-like quality to it. It’s something I would definitely like to try in a more powerful cartridge or even e-liquid.
The battery life on the starter kit actually wasn’t all too bad. It did take about two hours to fully charge but wound up lasting me almost a full day. For its relatively small size, the battery for the On-The-Go kit surprised me. I was only really expecting it to last a couple hours with moderate use.
I had even worse expectations for the Gold disposable. And the battery on this little guy actually met my expectations, which isn’t anything to be proud of. To be fair, I got about the same puffs from an NJOY King last week as I did from the Vaporin challenger. Both disposables only last around 80-100 two to three second puffs.
