With sales in over 24 countries, UK-based Intellicig is establishing itself as a global electronic cigarette presence. The Intellicig Electronic Cigarette company (IEC) currently offers a total of 4 starter kits: Intellicig, Express, Starter Plus and Premium, respectively listed in ascending order of price. IEC is unique in that it offers buyers the option of their 2- or 3-piece e-cigarette systems (the latter being refillable). Buyers looking to save a few bucks will be sure to opt for their refillable 3-piece systems as these comparable 3-piece systems offered by competitors are being replaced with more costly disposable 2-piece systems (cartomiser & battery). The Intellicig Starter Kit has a current suggested market price of £29.95 and includes: your choice of 5 refills, 1 vapour device, 1 Intellicig battery and 1 USB charger. The price and features of the Intellicig Starter Kit place it in same entry-level e-cigarette market with Smoke Relief’s eCigarette Mini Starter (£31.93) and E-Lites E80 E-Cigarette Starter (£25.99). A quick glance at what’s included in each kit clearly shows that Smoke Relief’s Mini starter includes the greatest number of refills, however, only IEC’s kit contains a refillable system. This makes IEC’s kit cheaper in the long run. In this Intellicig review, we’ll delve deeper into how the Intellicig Starter Kit stacks up against competitors.
Reasons to Buy
- Cheaper refills
Reasons to Reconsider

Intellicig Review – Aesthetics
The Intellicig Starter Bundle is packaged in a white box with 2 smaller white “wallets” inside. The trifold wallet contained the empty vapour device, USB charger and the Intellicig battery as well some brief information on the product. Aside from the generic USB charger (pretty common), the vaping system looked of premium quality. The battery measured 61mm and the vapour device 35mm which makes the entire assembled apparatus a total of 95mm in length (comparable to Superkings). Buyers are given the option of 3 battery colours: white, black or silver; I opted for white. The entire e-cigarette system has a pleasant appearance featuring a silver ring at the battery-vape refill junction and “Intellicig” printed on the battery.
“entire e-cigarette system has a pleasant appearance”
The 5 UK-manufactured ECOpure refill capsules are housed in the bifold wallet and are accessed from the exterior. This kit is truly a “sampler” for Intellicig’s products, as it does not offer a portable charge case, Mains adapter or multiple batteries typical of higher-priced electronic cigarette kits.

Intellicig Review – Technical Features & Battery
Intellicig has a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee on products purchased through its website. This covers products handled under normal use and surprisingly includes the vapour device. 30 days doesn’t seem sufficient when companies such as E-Lites back their products for up to 6 months.
