Here is my personal VaporFi Vice review with my opinions how this vaporizer performs along with a review of VaporFi’s new line on high VG e liquids “Grand Reserve”. Visit >> http://www.vaporfi.com for purchasing information.
Review of the VaporFi Vice
Opted for the stainless steel color and 3 flavors of Grand Reserve (Rainbow Custard, Cloud Candy, Island Frost).
Right out of the box the VaporFi Vice looks sleek with real stainless steel metal construction and glass drip tip. No worries about “tank cracking” because the glass tank will prevent that if you use other e liquids.
The VaporFi Vice comes with all the things you need in an electronic cigarette starter kit like the vaporizer itself, the glass tank along with 2 extra atomizers, the chargers for use in a wall socket or computer USB port, and of course and instruction booklet.
Included in the VaporFi Vice starter kit:
- 1 2200mAh Vice Battery
- 1 Vice Sub-Ohm Tank
- 1 1.2 Ohm Atomizer
- 2 0.5 Sub-Ohm Atomizer
- 1 AC Adapter
- 1 USB Charger
Specs: (from vaporfi.com)
- Battery Capacity: 2200 mAh
- Dimensions: 5-3/8″ x 3/4″ (Including Drip Tip)
- Threading: 510
- Tank Capacity: 2.5ML
- Operating Voltage: 3.4 – 4.2V
- Adjustable Airflow Control Valve
- Low voltage/ Short-Circuit Protection
- Minimum Resistance: 0.5 ohm
Upon opening my vapemail like a kid on Christmas morning I quickly accessed all the contents and decided to read the instruction manual first (like really) before getting it ready or this VaporFi Vice review. Good thing I did because I did not want to break it by screwing this or that in the wrong place.
First thing I did after getting familiar with the VaporFi Vice as charge it up (did not know it came fully charged). Since the battery is built in, you just plug in the USB cable to the wall charger – plug it into the wall – then plug the cord into the VaporFi Vice on the side near the bottom.
A red LED light glows right near the plug in source on Vice and a red light glows on the wall charger. After an hour or so, the red light on the VaporFi Vice shut off – meaning it’s done charging and ready to vape.
VaporFi Vice Review – Sub-Ohm Tank
I like the glass window that shows the amount of e liquid is in it and I really like the glass tip on the drip tip (even though you can not actually drip) that is removable if you want to customize the VaporFi Vice with your own.
There are two big slots on the bottom of the VaporFi Vice for airflow, for me, I like to go wide open.
Filling up the tank with e liquid was pretty easy, just tun it upside down and unscrew the bottom, inside there is a .5 ohm atomizer already inserted – so I made sure it was snug (the instruction manual says not to over tighten).
With the VaporFi Vice tank still upside down I filled it up with some Grand Reserve Rainbow custard paying close attention to fill along the sides of the tank and avoid the middle piece where the airflow is and not to go beyond the point of the airflow.
Screwed the bottom of the tank back on to a snug fit and let it soak for a few minutes. Make sure you do this or you will get a nasty dry cotton hit, believe me, you won’t like it!
Time to make the VaporFi Vice whole again – Screwed the tank onto the Vice and took a few dry prime puffs in off mode to get the e juice set into the wicks.
Clicked the button 5 times on the Vice as a white LED light lit up right above the trigger button.
VaporFi Vice Review – Performance
Since I was using the .5 sub ohm coil I knew it would cloud up, and it sure did! Nice big clouds with a surprising amount of flavor which I really did not expect as most of my sub ohm experiences have been big on clouds and subtle on flavor.
Since VaporFi’s Grand Reserve e liquid is 70% VG I knew it would make nice clouds and the 30% PG provided the flavor. When I took a puff with the airflow wide open it was a tad tight for my liking as I prefer to lung hit hard, but I got used to it and just did a slower draw lung hit.
The VaporFi Vice hit just as good as my dripper built at a dual coil .5 ohm with cloud production and to be honest, the Vice provided more flavor.
When the fire button is pressed the white LED glows which I think is cool cause I personally love LED things that light up – something I miss on my dripper.
The glass mouthpiece does tend to build up condensation, but I guess that can not be avoided as you are vaping vapor after all.
The Vaporfi Vice felt good in my hand and was a lot lighter in weight than I expected. Performance and build quality was top notch, for the rest of the night I could not put that Vice down and am still vaping on it right now as you read this VaporFi Vice review!

A few things to take into consideration, when you sub ohm you tend to gobble up e liquid faster. Sub ohm vaping is like a gas guzzler, if you want big clouds, then you need to realize you’ll vape through your e liquid a lot faster. Where do you think all that cloud production comes from?
VaporFi Vice review – A few things I like:
- Performs great, big clouds and big flavor.
- Easy to carry around.
- Battery lasts all day and more.
- Short circuit protection for stress free sub ohm vaping.
- Window on tank that shows e liquid level.
- Glass tank does NOT leak!
- Simple to use
VaporFi Vice review – A few things I don’t like:
- Wish it had even more airflow for easier lung hits.
- Condensation inside the glass mouthpiece (guess that can’t be avoided).
- At .5 ohm, it really sucks up the e juice! (again, that can’t be avoided when you sub ohm vape.
- Induces chain vaping, can’t put it down!
So far, I’m really happy with the Vice and honestly can’t put the damn thing down! Will the VaporFi Vice win a cloud competition? Of course not as it’s not made for that LOL. Alright, moving on to the e liquid used in this VaporFi Vice review…
VaporFi Grand Reserve Review
The VaporFi company made the Grand Reserve e liquid especially for sub ohm vaping with a 70% VG and 30% PG mix as the VG created more clouds and the PG provides the flavor. The 70/30 ratio is perfect for decent clouds and vapor production.
The 3 Grand Reserve e liquids I got were:
- Rainbow Custard – citrus and custard, each hit taste a bit different with hints of tangerine here and lime there with a nice custard throughout (used in this VaporFi Vice review).
- Cloud Candy – taste like carnival cotton candy and gummy bears, really fruity and sweet. Even has a bite of sugar crystals like real cotton candy.
- Island Frost – citrus mint, nice bite of citrus flavor and coconut on the inhale and a nice minty coconut exhale. This too has a different flavor on each vape.
- Catch Ya Latte – Just got it, this stuff is TASTY! Vapes like a warm, sweet fresh latte from Starbucks. Combine it with your favorite coffee and you are in pure bliss (trust me o this one).
>> Shop VaporFi Grand Reserve E Liquids
Very tasty stuff indeed, the “Catch Ya Latte” was recently awarded the “Vape Summit 2015 Award Winning Blend“. If you decide to make an order at VaporFi be damn sure to get the “Catch Ya Latte” e liquid.
VaporFi did a great job on listening to it’s customers by providing easy to use sub ohm vaping devices like this Vice. The new Grand Reserve e liquids are going to be very popular as the 3 I’ve tried so far and very tasty and cloud up nice.
During this VaporFi Vice review I hit on all the points of using this vaping mod from the 1st day and hope I covered everything so that you now know what to expect. The VaporFi Vice is a cool looking vaporizer that focuses on pure sub ohm vaping with a no fuss approach.
