7.4our score

10 Motives is a distributor of rechargeable and disposable electronic cigarettes, as well as accessories. The company is currently based out of Sandbach, Cheshire with a customer service support staff available during normal business hours during the weekdays. 10 Motives markets a total of three rechargeable electronic cigarette kits: Regular V2 Rechargeable, Menthol Rechargeable, and the i-Vape. The former two bundles are sold for £13.99, while the i-Vape goes for £39.99. In addition, the company does sell electronic cigars, refill cartomisers, carrying cases and an a la carte personal charging case.

The i-Vape electronic cigarette starter kit includes 2x rechargeable batteries, 4x cartomiser refills, personal charging case, and a USB charging cable. This places the 10 Motives i-Vape in the same category of starter kits as the JacVapour V1P PCC Starter and Green Smoke Express Kit. Let’s take a closer look at how the i-Vape stacks up against the competition.

10 Motives Review – Aesthetics

10 Motives packs two rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, a USB charging cable, personal charge case and 4 cartomisers into their i-Vape e-cigarette starter kit. Everything is packed neatly into the kit. The first thing you’re likely to notice is the personal charge case, which is primarily black with the 10 Motives brand name printed along the front face. Additionally, the PCC features an orange-yellow vertical stripe and a battery indicator on the lower body.

“first thing you’re likely to notice is the personal charge case”

As for the electronic cigarette itself, 10 Motives has chosen to use a 2-piece design. The company seems to be aiming for a look reminiscent of traditional tobacco cigarettes with a white battery and cork-colored cartomiser. Evenly spaced lines are also found encircling the body of the battery along with the company’s logo. As usual, a light illuminates when users take a drag. Overall, I feel 10 Motives has succeeded with the look of their PCC and e-cigs. However, I wasn’t impressed with the battery indicator that just seems out of place on such a retro design.

10 Motives Review – Flavour & Vaping

Presently, 10 Motives Electronic Cigarette offers a total of twelve cartomiser flavours for buyers to try with everything except “regular” being offered with only the 16mg nicotine strength. The “regular” is also offered in 18mg and 11mg nicotine strengths. Additional flavours include: Menthol, Blueberry, Peach, Grape, Watermelon, Cherry, Chocolate, Classic American, Coffee, Strawberry and Vanilla. Interested buyers should keep in mind that only Menthol and Regular are available stock with rechargeable kits, which means less conventional flavours must be purchased separately.

Assembly of the 10 Motives i-Vape e-cigarette is no different than the majority of 2-piece electronic cigarettes on the market. Users must simply screw the cartomiser into the battery and take a drag to begin the process of vaping. I found the “regular” flavour to be sufficient but nothing special relative to the large electronic cigarette market. Vapour production was also fairly mediocre, which may be a plus for those not looking for a huge vapour cloud. Overall, the i-Vape e-cigarette fails to stand out against the largely competitive number of comparable electronic cigarettes on the market today.

10 Motives Review – Technical Features & Battery

10-motives-battery 10-motives-charger Packed into the i-Vape Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit are two rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. Both batteries are identical and feature the 10 Motives logo in fairly large print near the batter-cartomiser junction. The personal charging case included is a matte black colour with a battery indicator screen toward the bottom of the front face. The indicator allows for users to see the current battery level of the PCC and whether or not it needs to be recharged. Charging of the i-Vape PCC is accomplished by plugging one end of the USB charge cable into the PCC and the other into a USB power source. The entire PCC charges within hours and should provide sufficient battery life to get the average user through a typical workday without needing to recharge.
“indicator allows for users to see the current battery level of the PCC” 10 Motives does not explicitly warranty any of their electronic cigarette devices with the exception of their batteries. This is common amongst electronic cigarette companies as the consumable and unhygienic nature of cartomisers make it seemingly pointless to return. Reuse of returned cartomisers would be unethical to say the least. Batteries purchased from 10 Motives carry a warranty period of 3-months from the date of purchase. 10-motives-case
