The Vapage Difference
Like any other company today, Vapage has their own disposable, pen-style/cig-a-likes, and eGo style vaporizers. They have put a lot of money behind their patent pending horizontal coil. They claim that because of its orientation it remains submerged in the e-liquid the entire time, where as the normal vertical coils will eventually become exposed as the e-liquid is used up.
Everything about their design is an upgrade over previous ones. They are using better quality parts such as new silicone washers and no solder points. All of these things and more are the reason, they say, that their e-cig out-performs every other on the market.
Does it Work?
I must admit, I was intrigued by the design at first and I found myself wondering why this was never tried before. Everything that I have seen about this e-cig is positive. So I was eager to find out for myself whether or not it would live up to its billing.
The Vapage horizontal design is not clearly the reason in my mind, but it is hard to deny that their e-cig does seem to give a consistent burn much longer than other similar styles. That is the biggest complaint that I have noticed (and made myself) over these last few months. That the vapor production trails off considerably with cig-a-likes, with both disposable and refillable models.
Just like other companies Vapage does offer starter kits. Provided you are getting an e-cig with the horizontal coil, you must be thinking already that you are getting a good deal. In line with other kits you will get everything you need, including a few extra pre-filled carts. I have never been a fan of this style, but if you are in the market for a starter kit, or new to the scene this is a good deal.
As for many of the other products they offer you will find that they have much of what you will find in many other places. Everybody today sells mainly the same catelogue of products. The difference you have to search out is in the prices and in a company's own products. In this area Vapage is not much different than any other company.
Accessories and Tools
Vapage does a good job of selling their own products and promoting their accessories. Their site is filled with (easy to find) add ons or extra parts for the starter kit you may have just purchased. Or maybe you need an extra battery for your e-cig. Regardless ofwhat you need you will find it on their site. It may be a bit more than you wanted to spend, but it can be ordered.
I did not notice any "out of the ordinary" shipping delays or issues with Vapage. They seem to be on the ball when it comes to filling orders. The web does not have much to say about their customer service which I often times will take as a problem.
If a company does a good job caring for their customers you will generally see something. Somebody somewhere will have said something and it will be picked up by the search engines. But when I find absolutely nothing it makes me wonder.
The site is simple enough and is easy enough to find you way around in. It would be nice if they had a bigger selection of juices, but they do carry all the regular flavors, strengths, and bottle sizes. While they are a bit on the high side with the price, as long as your not looking for anything too exotic you will find what you need on the Vapage site.
Overall I think Vapage has a good thing going. They have a decent product in their horizontal coil, though I would like to maybe see that design in more devices. Then again, I am no engineer. Their kits are simple enough and come complete with everything you would need. Of course they could be a bit cheaper especially considering you have to pay for shipping too. Vapage is in general an average supplier of electronic cigarettes and supplies, but they should strive to be a bit better.
