Proudly, our first review is a product of VaporFi.com, formally VaporZone.com. The name has changed, but the great product record still rolls on! We hope to get our hands on more products in the coming month from this company, but at the moment, I thought best to review the first product from them that I’d tried. So ready on, and feel free to comment on your VaporFi Pro experiences as well! If you’re wondering how our review system works, take a look at our Review Policy page.

Build Score: 89 Excellent
The VaporFi Pro is a three piece apparatus, consisting of a base configuration of a 650 mAH, 3.7 Volt Battery, a 1.5ml Tank with two slit windows running vertically on the tank for a quick peek at your remaining juice and the Pro-L Atomizer already installed in the tank, as well as a comfortable, well shaped, hard plastic mouthpiece. The starter kit also ships with a wall power adapter to screw the battery into for charging and three additional Pro-L Atomizers along with a membership card and user manual.
The battery is of the 5-click style for powering on and off. The pass-through port on the base of the battery is of USB mini (type B), which isn’t the most widely used, but it shouldn’t be a problem finding a cable for it, since it doesn’t ship with one. I believe that the battery also supports pass-through technology, but I didn’t actually test this myself. In my tests, the battery lasted well into the second day of use before requiring a recharge.
Refilling is reasonably basic, as is replacing the atomizer. The Pro-L Atomizer that comes with the kit is of the short-wick variety, entering into the atomizer near the bottom of the tank. This assures that as long as you have some juice in the tank, it’ll always keep the wick adequately wet. To remove the atomizer and/or refill the tank, you simply unscrew the battery followed by unscrewing the cap between the tank and battery. Then it’s simply a matter of dripping your e-juice into the tank, or unscrewing the atomizer from the cap for replacement.
Overall, the build and manufacturing of the VaporFi Pro is fantastic. I have experienced no leaks thus far, and have been using the same battery and atomizer for over a month. The only real drawback to the build is that the mouthpiece isn’t capped at all. Thankfully it’s not too hard to find a home remedy for this if you’re worried about dust and particles collecting in the mouthpiece.
However, it’s unfortunate that as of now, VaporFi doesn’t offer a small bottle of e-liquid along with this kit, but to be fair, most eGO style kits do not. The great news though, is that the purchase is topped off with excellent customer service, a 30 day money back guarantee, and a 90 day warranty on all standard priced kits.
Vapor Score: 90 Excellent
Using VaporFi’s Menthol Ice e-liquid (no nicotine), I carefully filled up the cartomizer and took my first draw. Right out of the first inhalation, I could feel a mild frosty throat hit. This is great considering that usually a higher nicotine-infused juice will provide even more throat hit. Upon exhalation, a nice, minty cloud of vapor tumbled out. Slow, three second puffs are where I found the zone of comfort I like to have when it comes to vapor production and strength. Most of this depends on the flavor of e-juice as well, but when it comes to the menthol vaping, VaporFi has really outdone itself. The vapor produced from the Pro is thick, consistent and in this case, able to be inhaled straight from the device (as opposed to puffing, filling the mouth, then inhaling.), which produced even more vapor, harder throat hit, and more flavor. This is somewhat of a rarity in the electronic vaping market, since most flavors and devices are too burly or harsh to inhale straight. Even with the Pro kit being the standard entry in the line of products offered at VaporFi, the vaping experience is nothing short of top-notch! In addition, all VaporFi e-liquids are made in the USA!
Draw Score: 79 Good
The VaporFi Pro gives a good, consistent draw. My personal preference is to have a little more resistance, akin to a real cigarette. However, the Pro Kit satisfies. There’s a bit of a whistle sound and sensation as you inhale, which isn’t a huge deal, but does make it seem a bit more like sucking through a straw then puffing on a cigarette. Still, coupled with the nicely formed mouthpiece, you do feel as though you’re getting a quality draw in exchange for the vapor produced. In comparison, the resistance and pull feel much better than with most conventional e-cigs.
Variety Score: 97 Superb
There’s no denying the amount of customization and tinkering you can do with VaporFi’s Pro kit. The offerings are too numerous to list! From more powerful and variable voltage batteries, to ordering the VaporFi Pro kit in colors, the quantity of options is staggering!
You can even elect to experiment with different atomizer and tank combinations. If one combo isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, VaporFi has no problem offering a diverse selection of options until you find that special, magical combination of battery, tank, atomizer and e-liquid. Couple that with the fact that VaporFi offers thousands of e-juice flavor combinations, and it’s clear the benchmark has been set by VaporFi in the amount of customization presented!
Pricing Score: 91 Superb
At the time of this review, the VaporFi Pro Kit was selling for $49.99 marked down from $84.99. Considering that lesser traditional e-cig kits often sell for at least $20 more, this is an outstanding value for what I consider a truly professional product. Vaping on the Pro gives you a satisfaction that’s exceedingly hard to match with comparably priced offerings on the market. If this is your first VaporFi product, you can’t go wrong! Though VaporFi considers this its more “entry-level” kit, you’ll certainly not feel like it’s the cheapest kit of their EGO-styled offerings with the quality it offers. **Special** Click any of the photos or HERE to activate your Puffers-Post.com exclusive 10% discount at VaporFi!!
Summary/Overall Score: 88.6 Excellent
If you’ve never tried an eGO-style/Pen style e-cig, then you’d be hard pressed to find a better introduction! The VaporFi Pro Kit will do you right, without breaking your bank account!
Great value, awesome vapor, highly customizable.
No mouthpiece cap, somewhat airy draw.
