As a smoker of nearly 20 years I have been looking for a suitable alternative for some time. On average I used to smoke 20 tobacco cigarettes per day prior to using an electronic cigarette.
Product Name: VIP Kit No.3
Product Code: VIP003
Where purchased: www.vipelectroniccigarette.co.uk
Reason purchased : On recommendation from a friend
Cartridges : Tobacco Taste 18mg High Nicotine
Taste Verdict : 4/5
Nicotine Verdict : 4/5
Size Verdict : 5/5
Weight Verdict : 3/5
Overall Verdict : 4/5
Reason for scores : I would give this 5 out of 5 but as I have not tested it against many other e-cigarettes, it would be more accurate scoring 4/5.
The VIP003 can be described as a Mini Cigarette. Outwardly it looks the same in appearance but slightly longer than a normal cigarette, similar to Super King size and is heavier due to the battery. The rechareable battery however does last longer than expected.
I use the 'VIP Tobacco Taste 18mg cartridges'. These VIP cartridges have a subtle taste of tobacco and not overpowering. By the second inhale the nicotine kicks in. I was suprised at how realistic the experience was from an artificial cigarette.
The cartridge box costs £9.99 for the equivalent of 130 cigarettes. The starter kit is now priced at £39.99 including free UK delivery, 10 cartridges and spare rechargeable battery.
Overall I am very satisfied with the performance and value for money of this product.
