JAC Vapours laundry list of options extends to their lines of e-cig batteries, which range in length from 48mm to a whopping 96mm. It should come as not surprise that battery lengths are proportional to their mAh ratings. JAC Vapour currently offers customers a total of 13 electronic cigarette starter kits ranging in price from as little as £4.99 for the disposable starter to £53.99 for their premium variable voltage manual starter. The JACVapour V1P PCC starter kit begins at £35.99 and contains what would satisfy the majority of entry-level e-cig users. The V1P PCC starter kit includes: (1) V1P personal charge case, (1) USB PCC charge cable, (1) mixed bungs pack, (1) choice of battery, (5) choice of cartomisers and (1) e-cigarette manual. A second battery, secondary USB charge cable and USB to Mains adapter are also available as add-on options. Let’s move onto the aesthetics of the JACVapour review for the V1P starter.
JacVapour Review – Aesthetics
The JAC Vapour V1P PCC Starter Kit comes boxed in an unassuming medium sized white cardboard box. The make and model of the kit are clearly visible as are the contents and some key details. JAC Vapour gives users the option to choose between a glossy black, graphite or glossy white personal charge case (PCC). I opted for the glossy black, which I found to be rather pleasant in appearance but prone to fingerprint smudging. The PCC has a top sliding mechanism that reveals two 65mm 180mAh black batteries (your batteries will vary based on your order). A unique rotating screw-in charging port is found in the PCC that allows users to swing out the battery being charged to unfasten. The matte black batteries have a smooth rubber coating that make them easy to grasp. I’ve never been a fan of bungs and the included bungs are no exception, making the entire kit seem somewhat cheap.
“matte black batteries have a smooth rubber coating that make them easy to grasp”
Moving past the intuitive user guide, I found the cartomisers seated on the bottom of the box in a matte black box with stickers denoting the contents. The 35mm tobacco cartomisers were a matte black colour identical to that of the battery. The entire assembled electronic cigarette device I ordered measured 120mg and weighed slightly over 16 grams. Flavour and nicotine content labeling are imprinted encircling the cartomiser while the battery model is printed onto the battery end. A narrow silver ring joins the battery and cartomiser. I found the logo on the LED tip to be a tacky touch, as vaping will allow bystanders to see the branding through the light. Despite the LED logo, I found throughout my JacVapour review that the JAC Vapour electronic cigarette to be fairly aesthetically pleasing.
JacVapour Review – Flavour & Vaping
In order to begin vaping, one must simply take a drag, at which time the blue LED tip will illuminate and vapour produced. Vaping produces that all too familiar high-pitched sound that’s only created by electronic cigarettes. During the JACVapour review, I found that the JAC Vapour e-cigarette formed a sufficient amount of vapour without much effort. One minor quibble I had with the JAC Vapour device was that the plastic tip would occasionally fall off the cartomiser prompting me to search for the missing piece. The 18mg tobacco flavour included in my personally configured V1P starter kit was not disappointing, as it resembled a traditional tobacco taste.
