E-Lites E200 Starter Kit – E-Lites price is £39.99

Packaging/Contents – Score = 4/5

I placed an order for the E200 Starter kit on a Thursday afternoon and took delivery of my order on the Monday – nice and fast!
The item was well packaged in a padded envelope and arrived in perfect condition. I received with my Starter Kit the following contents:

  • 1 x E-Lites ‘tough case’
  • 5 x Spare E-tips
  • 1 x G9 Battery
  • 1 x Extendable USB Charging Cable

The E-Lites tough case is a sturdy acrylic casing that will fit your G9 battery and 5 e-tips in all at once for vaping on the move. At the bottom of the case is the USB charging cable tucked away and ready to charge. The cable is only small and does not extend very far but to be fair this makes the whole package much neater with no loose wires. On the back of the case there is a three step instruction guide for getting started as it really is that simple. The LED light on the end of the tip will tell you when it needs to be charged by flashing which is also a nice feature. I have to say that overall I was quite impressed with the very simple but effective packaging on the E-Lites. It is the closest case I have seen to that of a traditional 20 pack of tobacco cigarettes.

Very impressed so far!

Flavour/Strength/Vapour – Score = 5/5

This is where the E-Lites really impress with their smooth, simple but effective flavouring. Although they do not taste exactly like a real cigarette (not exactly a bad thing in my opinion) they are pretty close. The E-Lites produce a good volume of vapour with a really good throat hit.

I decided to get the regular strength flavour. You also have a choice of light, menthol and nicotine free. They say that each tip should give you the equivalent of 40 cigarettes worth of smoking. Although it is very hard to actually record this I feel that they may not quite give you that many especially if like me you take a long hard drag.

So all in all the Vapour and Drag is very good considering the size of the battery as notoriously an e-cig that looks like the real thing struggles to perform. Their cartomisers cost £19.99 per pack of 5 (200 cigs worth) with discounts for multiple purchases. This is slightly on the expensive side compared to other brands but still much cheaper than the real thing – I suppose you could say that you are paying for the quality!

Battery Performance – Score = 4/5

The new G9 battery that comes with the E-Lites E200 Starter Kit is very responsive and gives a very good drag first time round without having to ‘warm it up’ to get a decent hit. In respect of the visual side of the battery, it is very close to the real thing as they even go as far as faux rings down the shaft. The tip is fitted with a green light that activates when you take a drag and flashes when you need to re-charge. You can also buy different coloured tips but green comes as standard to prevent confusion in public places.

The lifespan of the batteries is pretty good considering the size of the battery but you will need to charge pretty regularly if you are a heavy user. The battery lasts for the equivalent of between 30 and 40 traditional cigarettes and they can be re-charged 200 to 300 times before needing to be replaced. Although I have not found this an issue, I would advise that a heavy user should purchase a second battery so you always have one charged and never miss out on any vaping time. The charging process is very simple with just a short USB cable that will charge the battery up in any USB port.

Customer Service/Returns & Warranty – Score = 4/5

Because I did not have any issues with the product or delivery it was going to be hard to successfully test their customer service levels. I decided to contact them with a made up problem. I phoned them and got through straight away. The person on the Phone was extremely pleasant and although I asked a few idiotic questions they never grew impatient or condescending and helped me all the way. I was very pleased as this is something they pride themselves on throughout their website so good to see it backed up.

They currently offer a 7 day return for packets that have been unopened. Batteries are covered by a 6 month warranty from time of purchase. Chargers and e-packs are covered by a 12 month warranty for any defects. All details can be found in full on their website.

Are E-Lites really the UK’s number 1? – Overall Score = 4/5

On the whole, E-Lites don’t disappoint and although whether they are number one in the UK or not is still up for debate, you can read through all the other starter kit reviews on Compare-ecig.com to make up your own mind but they will certainly be up there. If you want an E-cig that looks, tastes and feels like a real cig that you can charge easily then this is the product for you.

This starter kit is a decent product for beginners and experienced vapers alike, because even though they only have a small offering they really do try and focus on making what they do have a good product. It’s not perfect by any means but for those newbies looking for somewhere to start that’s not too complicated or expensive and it serves its purpose.

There were a few downsides surrounding the cartomisers for me. The price of replacement cartomisers is a bit steep and I don’t think they last for quite as many drags as they specify however they are still much cheaper than traditional cigs.
