We will get stuck into the Vaporfi Edge review in just a moment. First lets take brief look at Vaporfi, the company.
Vaporfi have emerged over the last few years to be one of the biggest, and most trusted e cig companies in the USA, based out of Florida.
Their product offering covers all levels of vape experience from mini e cigs and vape pens for beginners to temp control box mods for the more advanced vaper. They also produce some of the best e liquid we have tried to date.
Read on for our thoughts on the pros, cons, and everything in between for the VaporFi Edge.

Edge Build Quality & Deisgn
As usual with VaporFi, the quality of this device is superb. This isn’t something new to this company: VaporFi tends to maintain a really high quality throughout their product line and their eliquids.
In terms of the manufacturing process, VaporFi maintains high standards and ensures their products are produced under rigorous conditions.
This is evident with the VaporFi Edge, this commitment to quality really comes through and makes for a durable device.
We’re obviously fans of the entire VaporFi brand, but the VaporFi Edge is an especially cool device. It has a nice feel in the hand that makes it a pleasure to vape.
May sound strange but as I have my vape mod in my hand for a good percentage of the day I want it to sit right.
Normally, a sub ohm device like the VaporFi Edge might require some extra work, like putting together the parts and pieces, or being knowledgeable about coil resistances, or needing to configure the device to fit in with the tank and coils.
The VaporFi Edge requires none of that. It’s ready to use, right out of the box. Basically allowing vapers new to sub ohm vaping to pick up and use the device immediately. Just remember to fill it with e liquid first 🙂
The Edge also features a 1800 mAh capacity battery and creates some serious clouds with 100 W of power.
Vaporfi Edge Sub Ohm Tank
The Edge tank, again, feels solid and well made. It has a huge 7ml capacity tank topped with a 12mm wide bore drip tip. There is a 0.5 Ohm coil pre-installed and a 0.2 Ohm spare coil.
The tank can be broken down for easy cleaning and the glass replaceable in case of any mishaps. There is also a spare glass tank in the kit.
It’s a bottom fill tank, easily done by unscrewing the based and filling by dripping down the inside of the glass tank.
How Does The Vaporfi Edge Perform?
We touched on how easy the Vaporfi Edge is to operate and after filling is pretty much ready to go.
A Couple Of Things To Keep In Mind – Important! Especially If You Are New To Sub Ohm Vaping
There are a few things that are very important to keep in mind, especially if you are new to vaping or sub ohm vaping.
The first is your nicotine strength. If you vape already using a standard vape pen e cig with coils above 1.0 Ohm (1.5 / 1.8 / 2.0 Ohm etc) then you are likely using a higher nicotine strength. Anything from 12mg to 24mg.
When using sub ohm vape tanks you need to cut your nicotine strength. The extra power that the coils can take heats the e liquid up more so than any standard device. This in turn creates a harsh vape when using high nicotine strengths. By harsh I mean un-vapeable!
I vape with 3mg nic strength when sub ohm vaping, I recommend you don’t go over 6mg. You will have a better experience!
The second thing is priming your coils. This is the same for all tanks you use.
You can apply a few drips of juice directly to the cotton on the coil before filling the tank, or simply fill the tank and let it sit for 5 minutes before firing the mod.
If you don’t you will cause the coils to dry burn the cotton. Once the cotton is burnt not only is the coil ruined but you can also taint the juice you have in the tank. The idea is to give the cotton sufficient time to soak up the juice.
The Vaporfi Edge tank and the 0.5 Ohm coil performs a treat. The airflow can be fully adjusted at the base of the tank. I suggest having a play around with this until you reach a setting that suits your needs.
For me, I like to keep the airflow open fully for full on clouds and a slightly cooler vape.
Closing up the airflow warms the juice up more and gives a touch tighter draw.
The flavor is excellent with this tank. I was using the Vaporfi Grand Reserve Rainbow Custard which is creamy, fruity vape and the flavors coming through were excellent.
The Vaporfi range of juices are well worth looking at.
It’s no slouch when it comes to clouds either. Certainly enough to keep most vapers happy.
To add to all this the 7ml tank capacity is huge and should ensure even the heaviest vapers don’t need to refill more than once er day.
Vaporfi Edge Battery
The battery has the standard 5 click on/off function. Be sure to use this when carrying the mod around in your pocket to stop accidental activating.
The 1800 mAh battery life is as would be expected. As a moderate vaper it got me through a full day before a recharge was needed.
While that’s decent, it would have been nice to see this sub ohm battery with a touch more life.
Not a huge thing but sub ohm vaping drains the batteries and when using the 0.2 Ohm coil it drains that little bit quicker.
Charging is easily done via the Micro USB cable and takes around 3 hours. The indicator light shows red when in charge and turns to green once complete.
Final Vaporfi Edge Review Verdict
The first thing you’ll notice is the price of the VaporFi Edge Starter Kit: $129.99. Although this may seem a bit pricey (and it is), the Starter Kit is fully equipped, with a lot of awesome features, making the price more about value than the plain numbers.
This is a kit that is made for vapers that want a fuss free device.
I really enjoyed the VaporFi Edge it has everything a beginner could want: ease of setup, classic, clean design, simplicity and performance.
That said, it also has everything you could want: sub-ohm capability and a huge 7 mL tank for awesome cloud production.
Of course, as mentioned, it’s is a bit more expensive among devices that are similar.
However, we think it’s worth it: VaporFi’s commitment to quality, as well as their warranty status and awesome customer service add a level of protection when you are buying the device that justifies the price tag.
The VaporFi Edge is a great device, and we recommend it for e-cig newbies and pros alike.
