Is it Wow! Or Woe With the Vapor Zeus Starter Kit?
The Vapor Zeus starter kit is a new take on the e cigarette starter kit targeted towards new vapers. First glance it certainly looks the part.
If you’re having issues with that cheap ‘n nasty e-cig kit you bought from the Sunday market or local store, don’t give up look for one that really will help you stay off the smokes.[Checkout our comprehensive guide to vaping starter kits]
The transition period from smoking to vaping needs to be has hassle free as it can be and as close to ‘the real thing’ as possible.
The four main things you need from your vaping starter kit are:
• Ease of use
• A good throat hit
• Good flavour
• Perfect nicotine delivery
So does the Vapor Zeus V-Kit from Wow Vapor deliver on those five key points and if so how well?
Let’s take a closer look.
In the Box
• V-Battery – 5 Volts of Power
• V-Cart – Pre-filled Cartomizer with 1.8% Nicotine
• V-Flavor – 6mL Bottle with 0% Nicotine
• Wall Adapter
The obvious key feature here has to be the V-Kit’s simplicity – it really is a dream to operate.
As the e-liquid comes in a ready filled cartomizer called the ‘V-Cart’ you simply screw it into the battery and vape.
We’ll get to the refilling later.
There’s no button to press – no settings to worry about – just charge and vape. There’s also an extremely long cable that means you can charge and vape at your desk comfortably.
But it’s the case that’s the standout for me.
Anyone carrying pen-style vaping devices around knows they can get lost in bags or stick out of your pockets.
The Wow Vapor V-Kit carry case is about the size of a packet of cigarettes, it’s stylish and functional with room for the battery – mouthpiece and small e-liquid container [supplied and full].
Its magnetic lock is extremely strong and closes with a very satisfying ‘snap!’ So no worries about leaking.
However there is no room for the cable so you’ll need to take that out and about separately.
Build and Design Quality
One word – exemplary.
This is high quality from the packaging down to the device its self – it screams class.
All the parts screw together smoothly and the rubbery/silicon style finish is a joy to hold. The battery took a few knocks whilst I was testing it out, however it didn’t split or mark in anyway.
As you can see I received the white version for review and with its silver threading and unobtrusive logo and writing, it’s a stylish piece of kit.
How Does the Wow Vapor V-Kit Perform?
The simple answer to that is like a dream.
The five volt battery arrived pretty much fully charged but I gave it another hour [it charges extremely quickly].
I was using the pre-installed tobacco flavored 1.8% nicotine filled V-Cart and it hit the spot for me!
Remember there’s no fire button, you simply draw on the silicone tip as you would a ‘real cigarette’, and I found it a tight draw just this side of a ‘little too tight’ for me.
However after 3 years of direct to lung vaping and only the occasional mouth to lung that certainly won’t be a problem for folks new to vaping – or indeed hardcore DTL vapers looking for a change.
I have used the V-Kit for a couple of hours a day for a full two weeks and found I still haven’t needed to re-fill the cartomizer – so I reckon someone ‘packing up the fags’ might find one lasts a week.
Filling the V-Kit is as simple as unscrewing the mouthpiece – exposing the mesh filter and drizzling in a tiny bit of e-liquid – simple!
As to performance this is a little pocket rocket.
The throat hit from the supplied e-liquid is impressive and the cloud vapor is excellent. The tobacco flavored e-liquid supplied with the kit – with 0% nicotine – is just OK but you can of course use your own if you prefer.
What I like
I love the case – it’s a standout for me mainly because I’ve lost track how many times I’ve snapped a pen-style e-cigarette after sitting on it.
The case is classy – sturdy and does the job perfectly.
The V-Kit looks great and I do like the silicone cover – very tactile.
The inclusion of an oversized cable is a big plus. It means you can vape whilst charging without having to perform ‘acrobatics’ by climbing under your desk!
Most importantly it works like a charm is so simple to use with a fantastic throat hit.
What I Don’t Like
I’m actually scratching my head here to think of something!
Maybe the silicone tip might be a little too big for some?
As vaping starter kits go you’d be extremely impressed using the Wow Vapor V-Kit. This little beauty has everything you need to make that switch from cigs to e-cigs.
The throat hit is exceptional as is the vapor production and trust me those two are key features in making that successful move from the ‘smokes.’
This device is right up there with the best starter kits on the market and was sent for the purpose of review by Vapor4Life.
So don’t let a week’s wait put you off starting on the tobacco free road!
