VIP - FAQS
Which VIP e-CIG should i buy to get started?
Our cartomiser electronic cigarette kits are simple to use, come in a range of nicotine strengths and flavours. The Compact Tobacco Cartomiser Kit is a popular choice as it contains 2 packs of cartomiser refills, a battery and charging equipment.
Can I use VIP products to quit smoking?
Due to the results from a number of research studies, attitudes regarding the use of electronic cigarettes as smoking cessation aids are changing. The NHS and Public Health England are amongst the official bodies who are now publishing reports on the positive aspects of vaping, including how they are successfully used by many as an aid to quitting the habit.
Nicotine is not a known carcinogenic and links to health issues are mostly inconclusive, but it is addictive. In excessive quantities it is classed as a poison, which is why toxic labelling is required. VIP e-CIG nicotine levels are well below the legally permissible limit.
How do I know when a VIP e-CIG battery needs recharging?
The tip flashing is a low power warning which indicates the battery needs to be recharged.
The VIP e-cig battery can be recharged at any point of the usage cycle. If you can avoid fully discharging the battery repeatedly and recharge the battery before the tip blinks it will help to prolong its lifespan.

Which strength of refill or e-Liquid should I choose?
Cartomiser refill and e-liquid strength is a personal preference. We provide the following purely as a guide.
Strong 20mg (2.0% per ml) â€“ 15 to 20+ cigarettes per day or trying to limit nicotine consumption
Regular 16mg (1.6% per ml) â€“ 10 to 15 cigarettes per day or trying to limit nicotine consumption
Mild 11mg (1.1% per ml) â€“ 10 cigarettes or less per day or trying to limit nicotine consumption
Zero 0mg â€“ Nicotine-free solution
Please note that the majority of our e-Liquids have nicotine strengths ranging from 0mg to 20mg
How do I know when the cartomiser needs changing?
There are a number of signals that indicate the cartomiser needs to be changed. The volume of vapour will decrease or some vapour will still be visible, but the flavour may start to taste slightly bitter.
Before you change the refill it's a good idea to check that the battery has sufficient power. Always make sure your battery is in perfect working order. An undercharged, damaged or old battery will not vaporise the refill ingredients efficiently which can lead to loss of vapour and the need to replace cartomisers more frequently.
