Batteries, tanks, and a few accessories is what you will find at Vivid Smoke. Like any other company that might specialize in one particular area of an industry, Vivid Smoke is putting their money in tanks. So far it seems to be working out well too because their tanks are pretty good.

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 vivid-accessatomizers 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.

E-Liquid Options

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
  • Jameson’s
  •  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

Vivid Smoke
QSC Rating: 77/100 by

I have said it a couple times in the review and the more I think about it, the more that I feel the statement fits the entire site as well. What I am referring to is “good, not great”. I feel that fits Vivid Smoke perfectly. They have a large selection of accessories and a small selection of complete kits. Yet, even with their small kit lineup it is still better than some other suppliers out there.

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.

  1. I bought the vivid starter kit, thought it was vey good until the mouth piece snapped off. Took it back to the shop and got another one, after a few weeks this mouth piece also snapped off. Returned it to the shop and I thought I would give it one last try so got another. The mouth piece has stayed on so far but cant use it any more because now when I use it I get the liquid in my mouth. Based on my experience I would not reccomend

  2. Send emails, never an answer. Bad management. Honestly, don’t waste your time. Go buy from a company that deserves the money and has better customer care, because you won’t get any from this company!!

  3. Bought the starter kit only for the battery to start going crazy on me and staying turned on within hours of me buying it. Thought I’d give it another shot and the second battery just had a meltdown after only a few puffs.
    Useless junk, I had to argue with the shop I bought it from to give me a refund. Turns out they’re all coming back.

  4. I got the Vivid starter kit and at first I thought it was a start to stopping smoking for the first day and a half was fine using the 18mg come about the 2nd refill after pouring the E-liquid I noticed the stuff turned darker in the vapour clear bit. I thought that’s strange then it got darker and turned in to a beer like colour and I noticed black little bits floating in it which was totally different to the rest of the E-liquid that was in the 18mg nicotine 10ml bottle. The bits started to increase into more bits I heard gurgling sounds from under the mouth piece and couldn’t get much suck off it. I noticed at times I wasn’t getting enough vaping then all of a sudden it packed up and completely stopped working and this is only after 2days of having it I thought their supposed to last a month at least before changing the top bit.

    I luckily brought a different brand and noticed with this other brand their was clearly an engrave CE and then looked at the vivid one and there was no engravement on it, so I am going look out now for imprints on them I went back to the shop and showed the person who sold it to me and he said he had no idea about them and just sells them I am having to learn hard way about these E-cigs and trying to do research on them myself for my own knowledge on here but I would say to any1 out there who wishes to purchase this crap make sure you do some surfing around first before you buy a good E-cig its like Iv paid fr half a starter kit for 2days pleasure which was a waste of money iv gone for EGO atmo half the price of Vivid and plus got a charger plug and 2 E-cigs I am finding them so much better Vivid isn’t any good Iv heard Totally Wicked is a good E-cig to buy 🙂 but never tried them I hope my comment helps other ppl to be aware of Vivid E-cigs Don’t buy shop around elsewhere 🙂

  5. bought a e-go t some months ago and very disappointed with the use of it,very little vapor coming out and and sucking like hell on the thing id still have a cigg after it,and on top of that,,it would leave my throat feeling sore, i then bought vivid expecting the same thing and very surprised by the quality of this ecig, its giving me alot more satisfaction ,alot more vapor , i can taste the flavour,battery life is fine,so im 1 happy customer

  6. Im from witham, Essex, England and I bought 2 of these kits and I was expecting to use them as a smoking reducer but they worked so well I stoped for 2 days now and bought about 10 refills, considering what ive tried in the past these worked quite well so im gonna stick to it… I haven’t had any problems with it so far..

  7. tried Vivid Golden Tobacco yesterday and utterly disgusting. Option 2 Classic tobacco today marginally less repulsive but now in the bin with the other. 10 pounds wasted. Can’t believe anyone passed those flavours as being acceptable. AVOID

  8. I bought the vivid e kit 2 weeks ago after a blu kit which after couple of weeks found getting very little vapour even with full tank. The vivid seems to be going really well until today after charging the battery will not screw in to the atomiser section. I went to shop where bought to get an atomiser as state in info leaflet to be told they don’t sell them you have to buy whole kit again. So two types down and won’t buy these again they are rubbish. The one I bought in the States Vuse which is still going strong. Will ask my daughter to send me refills these are size of cigarette but metal and refills size of a cigarette filter why can’t you buy these in U.K.?????

  9. I bought the Vivid E cigarette starter kit along with an extra bottle of medium strength 11mg Cappuccino Cream e-liquid, I have been using it now for two trouble free months and would recommend the Vivid E Cig to anyone. It is simple to refill, battery life is great and the atomizer produces the right amount of smoke. I have the occasional roll up cigarette when at home, but as time goes by I can see me switching 100% to the E cigarette. I have found that mixing the 18mg Classic tobacco with the 11mg Cappuccino cream at 50/50 ratio gives my the most satisfying smoke. After so many attempts at getting away from the awful smell of smoking it is great to have fresh smelling clothes, no ash, no need for lighters and to still be able to enjoy a smoke. For me Vivid E Cigarette rocks!

  10. my daughter bought me a starter kit it didnt work contacted the company 5 times and send the item back and have still heard nothing . what a dreadful untrustworthy company vivid are

  11. absolute garbage, i bought the starter kit and it worked fine till i got home from a festival and now it wont charge the liquid goes everywhere and there is no local retailer to take it back to. i definitely would not recommend this to anyone total waste of money

  12. Well, I have had mine around three weeks, I love it. My boyfriend bought some cigs the other day, had one,
    but I honstly prefered my ‘stick’ as I call it. I can pick it up and put it down when I feel like it and there is still
    something to smoke when I go back to it. No smelly ash trays, half smoked butts.
    One thing that I have noticed is that I have been getting very vivid dreams and remember them. A bit weird,
    but not frightening. I am a happy vaping bunny.

  13. I smoked very heavy I have tried to give up in past like them smoke stop groups and didn’t work was still smoking wen on patches and fake cig I bought starter kit was very skeptical about the whole e-cigarette but it has been 10 weeks with out smoking I find they are a fantastic product my health is so much better I can taste things now and breath I highly recommend using one dont use the tobacco flavours as they aren’t nice go for berry or fruit ones any one that is a light smoker get a low nicotine as u will get head aches and feel sick heavy smokers obviously use the high nicotine flavours smoke out doors as if u use indoors you will constantly use it use your e-cigarettes as if a reel one and within days you will notice a difference

  14. Not impressed at all 🙁 i have spent a fortune on cartomisers for this damn thing and not even lasting a day, they keep burning out and they taste disgusting. Its cost me more this week in vape and extra parts than it would in cigarettes. Highly annoyed as current one tastes horrid and have no spares so now going to have to spend more if i want to stay off the fags. My advice would be Avoid this brand. I will be searching for a replacement ecig asap. This is the starter kit i am refering too

  15. DO NOT buy the vivid ecig with atomiser and disposable liquid capsule!
    Firstly, the atomiser doesn’t last long at all – i have had plenty on fact that haven’t worked from the beginning, and when this happens during use it bubbles and spits nicotine liquid into your mouth – and not just a small amount!
    Secondly, the atomiser leaks. The liquid leaks into the atomiser, through that into the battery. This results in nicotine liquid coming out all over your hands and when the liquid gets into the battery it corrodes it rendering it useless.
    Third, the atomiser is a cheap design – it break very easily. If you stand your ecig up and it falls over,the atomiser breaks. If you put your ecig into your pocket it breaks. Sometimes it breaks just attaching a new capsule. Every time the atomiser breaks you willike be covered in liquid.
    Fourth, not all batteries work. I have multiple Vivid batteries – one works with the atomiser the rest don’t (I don’t know why – all of my batteries work with the clearomiser).
    The life of the battery, due to either corrosion or simply not working, is extremely short.

    Overall looking at a cost of £4.99 for 4 liquid capsules (length of use dependant on how often you vape), £4.99 for an atomiser which will need replacing 2 or 3 times a month often more and £9.99 for a battery that doesn’t hold great charge and will need replacing once a month, you are better off with a different brand. It’s costly, a hassle and dangerous due to the amount of nicotine liquid being leaked/disposed on your skin and into your mouth.
