Powerful battery, sleek aesthetics and voluminous tank

It sits perfectly in the palm of the hand exuding quality
The Vibe is the newest addition to VE’s line of e-liquid vaping devices. The entire combo consists of a heavy-duty 2000mAh battery ...
The Vaper Empire products consist of six distinct vaping devices for e-juices. They range from simple starter kits, easy-to-use cig-a-like series – the V-Pack II – to high-powered mods and tank combos like the Vibe. Each of their devices can come as a single unit or in a starter kit.
Their store consists of the following:
The V-Pack II – A cig-a-like device that uses a 170mAh battery and works with pre-filled cartridges.
The Viva Titanium – The Viva, which VE brands as a vapor pipe, comprises a 1.5ml clearomizer with an innovative titanium coil, and a 370mAh battery.
The Vantage Series – One of three tube-style, e-cigarettes from VE, the Vantage is a combination of a 1.6ml clearomizer and a 650mAh battery.
The V-Twist – The only variable voltage device in VE’s line-up, the V-Twist is a slender, slim e-cigarette that comes with a refillable 1.7ml tank and a 900mAh battery that has five different power outputs.
The Venture – A heavy-duty, stainless steel device consisting of a powerful 1500mAh battery that powers a 2.5ml tank.
The Vibe– The crown jewel in the VE roster, the Vibe consists of an impressive 2000mAh battery and a 4.5ml tank that uses a 1.5ohm coil.
The Vaper Empire e-liquid collection divides into two lines:
The Classic Collection – A range of 16 different, single-flavor e-liquids that feature classic flavors like Mango, Strawberry, and Tobacco and can come in either 10 or 30ml bottles with five nicotine strengths to choose.
The Artisan Collection – Also comprising a total of 16 different e-liquids, the Artisan collection is VE’s high-end selection of specially blended e-juices that come only in 10ml bottles, have five different nicotine strengths and feature such exotic names like Freudian Slipper, Death Valley Nectar and Spring in Siberia.
Vaper Empire also features replacement coils, clearomizers and other accessories for their devices. They also have a line of chargers and smart, leather-bound carrying case for their units.
Vaper Empire Brand Review: The Vibe Starter Kit Review
#1 The Vibe Starter Kit Review
9.5/10 Review score
The Vibe is the newest addition to VE’s line of e-liquid vaping devices. The entire combo consists of a heavy-duty 2000mAh battery and a large capacity 4.5ml tank. The coil inside the tank fires at a resistance of 1.5ohms and features a stainless steel wire with Japanese organic cotton wicks.
The Vibe Starter Kit comes packaged in a magnetic flip box, with the contents wonderfully arranged in foam inserts. The bottom side of the cover features an illustration showing how to assemble the device.
The kit consists of the following:
One Vibe 2000mAh battery
One Vibe 4.5ml tank (with a pre-installed coil)
One 1.5ohm replacement coil
Two drip tips
One Micro USB charging cable
One user manual
The Vibe comes with its tank attached. The mod, by itself, measures 85mm (3.5inches) tall, and 22mm (0.86 inches) across. The mod does not have the standard 510 threading on atop its frame, but an M7 proprietary thread that connects only to the Vibe tank, which also has M7 threads.
The mod is not variable voltage, so there is only one, round power/firing button. The mod is such that there is room for a small, thin LED display, but VE opted not to put it there. The battery section is light but has a good weight to it.
The device has a curved side, so there are no straight edges. It has an ergonomic form factor. There is a USB charging port at the base of the operating panel. The Vibe does feature pass-through charging so vapers can charge and vape at the same time.
The mod and tank only come in all-black. There are some Vaper Empire and VE’s logos tastefully stamped onto one side, but there are no other extravagant or distracting markings. There is an LED behind the power button that lights up when a user activates the device.
The LED is also a battery life indicator that turns either green (full power), yellow (half charge), or red (recharge) based on the battery capacity. As the tank comes already connected, users need only charge the device, and fill the tank before they start vaping.
Charging the mod takes between one and a half to two hours. The LED flashes red when charging, and turns a solid green when finished. To turn the Vibe on, vapers need to press the button only three times; the same for turning off the cell.
The Vibe tank is also quite large. The atomizer features a stainless steel and Pyrex glass construction with four separate viewing windows carved into its build. The steel wrap is raised, so if the tank were to drop the glass would (hopefully) not shatter.
VE includes two mouthpieces in the kit, a flat, mouth-to-lung drip tip, and a tiny, rounded, direct-to-lung drip tip. Users need only remove the tips, and press-fit them into place. The tank is a top-fill, and the top cap is easy enough to remove.
The Vibe uses a bottom vertical coil, so vapers need to remove the bottom cap to remove/install the coil, which is almost the length of the tank. The coil’s design is unique.
Five juice holes go up and down either side, so there are twenty in total. This design soaks the Japanese organic cotton wicks inside and provides a massive amount of vapor.
Users do have the option of ordering a deluxe version of the Vibe starter kit that comes with e-juices. The deluxe option gives vapers three flavors from their Classics collection and a single choice from the Artisan line. The three flavors that came with the Vibe kit were tobacco, menthol, and strawberry.
#1 The Classic Collection - Tobacco
A Traditional Flavor Reinvented
9.5/10 Review score
The Tobacco e-liquid from Vaper Empire is a classic flavor reborn for e-juice vapers. This formulation contains nothing more than rich, smoky notes of tobacco goodness. There is a single flavor profile to this juice, but that is enough to please anyone who used to smoke cigarettes. This tobacco e-juice does not overpower nor does it lack in delivering a satisfying throat hit. It finds the perfect spot between flavor and cloud size. Even at the end, the vape remains hearty, and the aftertaste leaves a vaper wanting more.
This e-juice comes in five different nicotine strengths from 0mg to 24mg. Vapers can choose from either a 10 or 30ml-sized bottle.
Menthol is a close cousin of Tobacco, when it comes to flavor, as in the past the two were inseparable. Even in the vaping age, though Menthol e-juice is still a close second to Tobacco when it comes to popularity among ex-smokers. This variation of Menthol does not disappoint. It delivers that sharp, frosty tingle for which mint is most famous. The e-juice hits a high note on the inhale, and the exhale is as enthralling as the first puff.
This e-juice comes in fives different nicotine strengths from 0mg to 24mg. It is available in either a 10 or 30ml bottle.
Strawberry from the Vaper Empire Classic Collection does not try to reinvent the fruity flavor of strawberry. The e-juice embraces the delicate sweetness of fresh berries but does not try to push it further than that. There is first a delightful explosion of strawberry, as the cloud enters the mouth. The rest of the vape has more subtle notes, as the cloud dissipates and leaves a refreshed feeling on the tongue.
This e-juice is available in five different nicotine strengths and comes in either 10 or 30ml bottles.
The Competitors: Vaper Empire vs. Vapo Australia vs. Victory Vape
Vapo Australia is both an online vape retailer operating in Australia and New Zealand, and a maker of vape devices like pod and tube mods. Vapo also manufactures and markets its line of e-juices. Unlike Vaper Empire, Vapo Australia offers many different types of devices and other vape accessories from well-known brands. Vapo does not have a customer loyalty program like Vaper Empire.
Victory Vape is an Australian brick and mortar vape shop that also has an online presence. They stock all the most well-known vape brands for both e-cigs and e-juice. Owing to the ban on nicotine e-liquid products in their particular state of Australia, Victory Vape only sells no-nicotine e-liquid. They do carry all brands and style of vape devices, from pod mods to mech mods and RBAs.
Vaper Empire Brand Review: The Final Word
Have you ever bought vape gear, e-juices from outside of the US? If the products were unique and original, would you go through the effort to buy from a non-US seller? Tell us where else you have looked for vaping stuff other than the US in the section below.
Vaper Empire occupies a particular spot in the vape retailer landscape. They are one of the few companies that only makes and sells their proprietary gear, without stocking any other major brands, which is rare among makers of vapes. Vaper Empire is not just a place to get high-quality vape gear and e-juice.
The Vaper Empire Society is a place where members can get discounts, vaping info as well as share their success stories on how they have made the switch to vaping. Vaper Empire stands out from the rest not only because of their product line, but because they frame vaping as a lifestyle and not just a hobby.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
