We received a Victory Full Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit the other day for review. The external packaging looks pretty good and the website is very attractive and easy to navigate. So we were excited to tear into the package and get a review put up on the site.
When you open the starter kit box, the first thing you notice is a fully assembled e-cig being presented to you right away. You literally can use this brand right out of the box. That’s a huge upside and minor detail that a lot of brands don’t think about. While one step of screwing a cartridge onto a battery isn’t much work, it’s just cool that you can grab this one and vape right away. The downside to this is that there are no caps on the cartridge and we would like to see that in order to slow down the liquid inside from drying out or going bad.
Also included in the kit are a car charger, wall charger, USB charger, and five more cartridges. This kit contains everything you need to get going. With the cartridges, they have plastic caps on them, but are not in a plastic bag, foil, or other protective item beyond that. So adding that would be a plus, but having the plastic caps is okay as well.
While using the electronic cigarette from Victory, we found that the taste of the Regular flavor was a pretty good tobacco flavor. It wasn’t sweet at all and just reminded us of a traditional cigarette. Of course there is no combustion, so nothing will taste exactly the same, but coming close is the name of the game in the e-cig industry.
The vapor production was decent. It didn’t make the largest clouds we’ve seen out of two piece designs, but it was adequate in our opinion. The throat hit from the Victory E-Cig was alright, but it could have been much stronger. We were not given all the flavors as of this point, so right now we can only comment on the Regular flavor.
Review continues after kit comparison table...
The battery lasted all day for us, so there was no concern there. We each only used a cartridge in a day and never ran out that day. Of course, we do have a lot of e-cigs on hand, so some of us did supplement our use with a variety of brands. For the average smoker it will suffice though.
The additional flavors that we did not try, but are available from Victory E-Cigs are Tobacco (Regular), Menthol, Strawberry, Blueberry, Cherry, Coffee, Vanilla, Chocolate, Menthol Low, Menthol Zero, Tobacco Low, and Tobacco Zero. So they have a wide variety and we will try them and get a cartridge review up, but we have not done that yet.
This brand of e-cigarette missed the opportunity to claim victory at ElectronicCigarettesReviews.net in our opinion. It has a lot of upside and isn’t a bad deal, but they have some minor improvements to make to reach that next level of being considered a top 10 e-cig like V2 Cigs, White Cloud, and Green Smoke.
- Great Value Entry Kits
- Good Cartridge Range
- Poor Cartridge Options in Kits
- Larger Kits Overpriced
