Accessories - The Core of Vivid Smoke
Chrome tips and atomizer headers might be a bit on the pricey side when bought separately. But then again, if you are even looking at this kind of stuff you already know that. Believe it or not, there are quite a few suppliers like this around since the rebuildable atomizers and tanks started getting bigger.
People like to customize things and they get that chance with Vivid Smoke. As a matter of fact, many of the latest mods and personal vaporizers took their designs from customizations that people had made early on with their e-cigs. It is this same community of people who will be the primary customer for Vivid Smoke.
Starter Kits Too
While at first it might seem like all they sell are accessories and various parts, however they do sell complete kits. They are broken up into three categories: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each level represents a different budget level and how advanced the kit is. The Bronze kits for example are geared towards the budget conscious. The Silver kits are still for those who are watching their wallet, yet they will include more accessories and options. The Gold kits are well, the premier kits and accessories sold at Vivid.
The advantage to shopping at Vivid for both the novice and the experienced vaper is two-fold. The first advantage is the price. While their accessories and kits are broken up into various groups based on price and how advanced they are, the costs of such products are not overly high. Vivid realizes that their profit lies in upselling the customer, not gouging them when they first start shopping.
The second advantage comes from their accessories. Let me explain. Vivid Smoke sells a lot of accessories and various parts or add-ons for e-cigs that you might already own or are planning to purchase. This is an advantage on its own, however because of this fact, that they sell so many items, it gives people more options when it comes to accessorizing or customizing their devices. More so than any other online e-cig supplier that I have seen anyway.
Vivid Smoke carries only 6 distinct brands of e-liquid. While I wish they had a bigger selection, the brands that they do carry offer an adequate amount of choices. That being said, they carry the following brands of e-juice.
- Adam Bomb
- Space Jam
- The Standard Vape
- The Mastermind Elixir
- Halcyon Vapors
I cannot claim to have tried all of the six, but I have tried four of them. Of the two I had not tried myself I have done some research and found that they are not the best, nor are they the worst on the market. The one's that I have tried I am content in saying that I have come to the same conclusion. All of the Vivid Smoke e-liquids are good, but not great. They provide a decent vapor cloud as well as a good throat hit. But keep in mind that depends on which flavor, strength, and combination you are vaping with. There are many different preferences related to each of the above listed brands, too many to list here.
The Overall Opinion
QSC Rating: 77/100 by Quit Smoking Community
The same can be said for their juices and their prices. "Good, not great". For those vapers who prefer to build their own atomizers or rebuild them, Vivid is a great place and probably already bookmarked in their browsers. For people who have yet to discover their website, it would not hurt to take a look. Like I said, there is a good selection of accessories as well as parts that you will eventually need.
Their prices are ok and so are their sales, but if you come to the site enough I think you will come to find they stock things you cannot easily find elsewhere. They also offer a pretty robust points program for frequent shoppers. It is for this and a couple other reasons that I would recommend Vivid to most anyone.
