Vype ePen Second Generation Review – A Great Alternative to Smoking?

With the recent boom of electronic cigarettes, more and more electronic cigarette companies are introducing innovative “mods” and “epens” to the market. However, most of these “mods” target the veterans of vaping, making it an overwhelming experience for the average joe to pick a mod to start with.

Luckily, Vype is offering a range of electronic cigarrettes products that targets the newbies, intermediate, and even the veteran users. In addition, Vype has also recently released their second coming of the Vype ePen, which is an innovative leap from its predecessor. This spells a great experience for new users as the company already has a grip on what an entry-level eCig device should be capable of, and has now recently perfected their ways with the introduction of the second generation of the Vype ePen.

However, the real question is, can the Vype ePen get you to quit smoking?

Let’s take a closer look.

What’s in the box?

The Vype ePen comes inside a clear acrylic case. Inside the case, you’ll find:

  • 1 Vype ePen (Length: 15.3cm, Weight: 37.1g)
  • 2 Vype ePen Caps
  • 1 Micro USB charging cable
  • 1 User guide

Design / Build:

The Vype ePen sports a pen-style design that is 15.3cm long and 37.1g heavy. It has a rubberized finish and comes with 5 different colors, namely black, white, red, violet, and navy blue.

Upon holding the device, you’ll find that it’s a bit heavier than it looks, giving you that premium feel while still being pleasant on the hands. The rubberized finish will take some time getting used to if you’re coming from an all-metal build, but if this is your first device, you wouldn’t have any problems.

However, I have to admit that the rubberized finish on the mouthpiece wasn’t for me. But, it’s not something you’ll never get used to.

Overall, I like the design and build of the Vype ePen. It sports a premium feel while not sacrificing portability. I also like the fact that you can choose from 5 different colors, giving you a chance to pick a color that’ll suit your wants and lifestyle. The only downside to this device is the rubberized mouthpiece but that’s entirely subjective and is something everyone can get used to.


Inside the Vype ePen is a  650 mAh that can give you around 5 – 6 hours worth of usage. This can be accessed through two fire buttons located on the device. The button labelled with one arrow consumes less power, but gives you less vapour. Meanwhile, the button labelled with two arrows consume a signifcant amount of your battery life in exchange for more vapour and much richer flavour.

The Vype ePen does a great job providing needed power to the device while maintaining its lightweight feel. I also like the addition of two fire modes to the device as this is a great feature for those people who are new to vaping. You can choose the less powerful button and have a great time vaping without overpowering yourself with vapour, or you can pick the more powerful button and enjoy more vapour and a much richer flavour.


Vype ePen

Vype introduces the eCaps, which is exclusive to the Vype ePen. This innovative leap by Vype has helped them produce a non-spill cap that easily refills your ePen in a matter of seconds.  Also, the flavour that comes in these caps is not something to snooze at. Though it’s not the best, but the flavour is pretty good given how easy to use the cartridges are and how affordable the device is.

Overall, I really like the thought Vype put into these cartomizers. The easy-to-use, non-spill caps are great for new users as it helps prevent spills that can cause damages to your device. Also, some of us just don’t want the hassle of refilling your device the traditional way.

Replacement and Refills:

Vype also provides a great way to help you maintaing your Vype ePen needs.

Also, refills are available at Php 499 for a pack of three. You can choose from Blended Tobacco, Crisp Mint, and Fresh Apple.

The Price:

The Vype ePen Starter Kit currently retails for Php 1,199 .


Some key points to remember when ordering the Vype ePen.

The Pros:

Here are a few strenghts of the Vype ePen device

  • Easy to refill
  • Affordable
  • Has two power options
  • Smoke production is not overwhelming for new users
  • Device is easy to use
  • Offers great flavour for the price
  • Compact and Portable

The Cons:

However, as with other devices, the Vype ePEn also has its fair share of flaws. Some of them are:

  • The Rubberized texture is not pleasant for the lips/mouth.
  • Flavour can be a little burnt at times.
  • Smoke production is not ideal for cloud chasing.

Overall, the Vype ePen is a great device for both new and intermediate users. New users can enjoy its portability, subtle smoke production, rich flavour, while not having the overwhelming feeling other mods tend to offer. It’s very easy to use and refilling the ePen is a breeze.

I would highly recommend this device if you’re looking for an entry-level device and don’t want the hassle of assembling your own mod, or the troubles of refilling your device through drippers.

So yes, the Vype ePEn is indeed a great alternative to smoking and is something you should really consider  if you’re planning to make a transition from smoking to vaping. So quit smoking  and get your very own Vype ePen now!
