Vapor King E-Cigs Review – Ready for Those King-Size Clouds?
Though Vapor King has its own line of products, the bulk of their inventory is products from other brands. This fact shows that Vapor King is committed to offering the best products, regardless of brand, to its customers. Everything is offered, from beginner starter kits to advanced mods, e-liquid to vape tanks, accessories and more. A lot of vapers can find what they need at Vapor King’s online store.

Vapor King has a limited selection when it comes to cig-a-likes, but they do have their own product. The Duo Pro Starter Kit is a beginner’s package that has everything one would need to stop smoking and start vaping. It has two batteries, five cartomizers, one extra pack of cartomizers, one USB charger, one home outlet charger, and a user’s manual.
The Duo Pro batteries are nothing to write home about. They are typical cig-a-likes that last about 250 to 300 puffs per cartridge. Battery life is on-par with other similar products, lasting about an hour or so. Shaped like traditional cigarettes, this is designed to slowly ease the new user into vaping by giving them something familiar to hold. The Duo Pro may not be the most powerful, but it is effective in helping curb cravings, which is exactly what it’s supposed to do.
#2 Storm Express Kit
9.5/10 Review score
An upgrade from the Duo Pro, the Storm Express Clearomizer Kit gives users one Storm battery, one Storm clearomizer, one bottle of e-liquid, one USB charger, one home outlet, one USB adapter, and a carrying case. Colors available include pink, stainless steel, and black.
Vape pens are bigger than cig-a-likes, often taller and wider in diameter, but they are still pocketable. To make up for the added length and girth, the Storm batteries give users more vaping times and its clearomizer offers more e-liquid capacity than regular cartridges and cartomizers, with the ability to be refilled at any time. For beginners who want more battery life than cig-a-likes and the option to refill their tanks with whatever e-liquid they choose, the Storm Express is what they need.
#3 Storm Deluxe Kit
9/10 Review score
With a pair of stylish and powerful vape pens, the Vapor King Storm Clearomizer Deluxe Kit is the company’s top seller. Along with the batteries, users also get two clearomizers, a bottle of Premium Vapor King e-liquid, one USB adapter, one USB charger, and one carrying case. Colors available are black, pink, and stainless steel.
The Storm Clearomizer Deluxe Kit is a great beginner’s kit, since it not only includes everything one would need to get started, but it also has a few customizable options. The clearomizers can be interchanged, so if one has two different flavors in each and one battery goes out, you don’t need to change the flavor you’re vaping because switching the tanks is easy.
The tanks are also refillable, so you don’t need to dispose of it once e-liquid runs out. Just refill and continue vaping. Another money-saving feature the tanks have is their replaceable atomizer head. Usually, when the atomizer coil wears down, users have to buy a whole new tank to replace it. With the Storm Clearomizer Deluxe Kit, one can just purchase a replacement atomizer head.
#4 E-Tank Starter Kit
8.5/10 Review score
A result of the partnership between Vapor King and Joyetech, the E-Tank Starter Kit features a replaceable atomizer system, excellent vapor production, and a high-quality build. Each kit includes two rechargeable batteries, two high intensity atomizers, one 5-pack of cartridges, one home outlet charger, one USB charger, lone user’s manual, and a gift box.
Batteries in the E-Tank Starter Kit come in various colors, including white, blue, green, pink, and red. Users can also choose between automatic or manual batteries. Manual batteries require users to press a button to activate the device every time one puffs, while an automatic battery activates as soon as one inhales through the mouthpiece.
Each has its pros and cons, but ultimately, the deciding factor when choosing between the two is convenience. Users who don’t want an extra button to push will want the automatic variant, while those who don’t mind the extra button push and want more battery life, will want the manual battery.
With the tank installed, the device measured about 4.5 inches, which is still pocketable though the device isn’t balanced at all. Despite this small quirk, the device produces amazing vapor density and overall quality. Unlike other devices with a two-piece design, the E-Tank has a three-piece design consisting of the battery, the atomizer and the tank. It would have been nice if Vapor King integrated the tank and atomizer into one piece, however, given that the atomizer is replaceable, and the tank is refillable, it’s all worth it.
Users who want something more out of their devices will want the Vapor King E-Tank Starter Kit. It’s modular, with replaceable parts, refillable, and produces massive clouds of vapor for a vape pen.
#5 Vapor King E-Liquids
8/10 Review score
Available in 10ml and 30ml bottles, Vapor King Juice has a decent selection of basic flavors. It has an 80/20 PG/VG ratio, which means flavor is more pronounced at the expense of vapor production. Nicotine levels available are 0mg, 6mg, 11mg, 16mg, 24mg, and 36mg. The two highest levels are only available with selected flavors.
The e-juices are fairly cheap and are made by Dekang in China. Dekang is a huge manufacturer of e-juice and one of the first to mass produce and sell worldwide. While the quality is not on-par with US-made e-liquid, the Vapor King Juice line of flavors is a decent alternative. Flavors are not that accurate, with tobacco flavors tasting sweet, fruit flavors having a synthetic taste, and throat hit being so-so.
Users looking for more exotic and unique blends won’t find it here, but for those who are just looking for affordable e-liquid in basic flavors, Vapor King Juice could work in a pinch.
Vapor King Sells it All
I have said it before and I will say it again. A starter kits aim should be to give the vaper a complete electronic cigarette, along with the ability to charge it, the ability to vape uninterrupted, and the ability to at least start to replace things that are used up. In all of those very basic needs the kits offered by Vapor King succeed.
The best thing they can do is offer you choices. When you are looking for a starter kit from Vapor King you will have the choice between a Joytech cig-a-like, the Joytech eGo e-cig, or a Kanger e-cig kit. Honestly, no matter which kit you go with you will be satisfied.
Start Kits Offered
I have learned long ago never to argue with a person’s personal choices. So while I do not prefer cig-a-like styles of e-cigs, you might. If that is the case then the Joytech starter kit from Vapor King will suit you fine. Of course it comes with everything you would need to get started and the device itself will work just fine.
The same can be said for the eGo and the Kanger kits. Both are great kits and both have a reputation that I can do nothing to change. So I will just say that no matter which you choose, you will have a great device that you can add to and keep for a long time. Vapor King made a wise choice putting these start kits up for their customers. All they have to do at this point is keep them in stock and work their customer service.
The Company Itself
A company is only as good as its treatment of its customer. On that I can say that I do not have a big enough sample size on my own. However my research and the sample I do have is enough to allow me to form an opinion at least.
From what I have seen and experienced, Vapor King is trying. They are not a company like some that cannot seem to get out of their own way. What adverse situations they have come across I do not know. But they do understand the treatment of the customer comes first and they do what they can to help. So in this I say they will be fine, so long as they continue on this path.
The Prices and the Industry
The prices of all their products I would call average. Thing is, these days it seems that the average price is a high one. It is beginning to be a common thread amongst some of these companies that are selling multiple brands to be a bit overpriced.
The starter kits are, for the most part, moderately priced and they fall in line with the rest of what is available on the net. Everything else however is a bit more suspect. Many of the products and juices are a dollar or two over what I would accept if I was buying the product. Of course there are certain things that are priced in the “normal” range, but most is not.
Vape Like a King
As an e-cigarette brand, Vapor King makes some good products, but nothing great. As an e-juice vendor, there are more affordable options, and the quality is mediocre, at best. As an online vape store, Vapor King redeems itself by offering a wide range of products, from starter kits to advanced mods.
The range of Vapor King products is meager, but if users browse the store, they’ll be surprised by the number of products available that are made by other brands. Beginners won’t have a lot of options to choose from, but advanced vapers will find a lot of accessories, devices, atomizers, tanks, and many more items that they might need. This shows how Vapor King strives to offer users the best and latest products, even at the expense of its own brand.
Prices are not the lowest and users can find the same products cheaper in other stores, but what Vapor King does offer is convenience. As a one-stop vape shop, Vapor King does really well. As a brand, there’s a lot of room for improvement.
That being said, the brand does have some decent starter kits for beginners, as well as a line of e-juice that is affordable. They may not be the best, but they try hard and it shows, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

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.
