What Can We Expect From The Cue 2.0 Vape Kit?

The Cue 2.0 Vape Kit is a pod kit that offers a Mouth To Lung vape (MTL) and is aimed to help smokers make the transition over to vaping.

It has been designed to be as seamless and as easy to use as possible, with no screens or settings to adjust. In fact, it doesn’t even have any buttons at all – it is purely inhale activated!

A key selling point is that you have the choice of using refillable pods if you would prefer to use your own e-liquids, which are available in 0.6ohm, 0.8ohm and 1ohm. Or you can make use of the pre-filled pods that offer a range of different flavours for you to try out. Both of which have a 2ml capacity to comply with TPD regulations.

You simply pop your pod in and based on the resistance of the coil the output power will be smartly selected for you. The output power range being 8.2-19.3 watts.

Not only has the Cue 2.0 been designed to offer fuss-free, simple vaping, each one is built to last as well. Cue Vapor state that the device is designed to last an average of 12-18 months, far longer than what you would get from a disposable vape.

It boasts a stylish, robust design, aimed to be as comfortable as possible in your hand. And you have an 850mAh battery built into the device to last you through the day, which is recharged via USB Type-C.

Let’s have a deeper look at the Cue 2.0!

Design & Build Quality

Now this is something that looks a little different! Cue Vapor have gone for a pretty understated and stylish design with this pod system and I’m really digging the looks of this one.

cue 2.0 branding

Measuring in at 101.5mm x 35mm x 16mm, including the pod, this is a really smart looking little kit that almost looks more like a fashion accessory than a pod system! You can also pick from three different colours, with Black, Sky Blue and Sunlight options available.

Lines are very sleek and smooth here and the rounded edges make it comfortable to hold in the hand.

cue without cartridge

Plus with no buttons present on the device, you’ve got no danger of accidentally pressing any!

As no screen is present on the device, you have three LED’s to indicate battery level. These are pretty bright and easy to see.

At the side of the device is a cut out for you to slot your pod into. You have to make sure you have the pod facing the right way (so airflow slot facing outwards) and insert it at a roughly 45 degree angle until you hear a satisfying click. The pod should then sit flush in the device.

airflow

Pods are available with 0.6ohm, 0.8ohm and 1ohm resistances if you opt for the refillable versions and prefilled pods are available.

The refillable pods feature a pretty clear viewing window, have a fixed airflow slot on the side and a removable mouthpiece so that you can access the filling port.

Though the mouthpiece does feel a little crunchy when you snap it back onto the pod!

One of the downsides of the design of the device is that you have got to remove the pod in order to fill it back up. Also it can be quite hard to see how much e-liquid you have got left in the pod itself if light conditions aren’t great.

Overall, I’m a fan of the looks and design of this little kit and just how nice it feels to hold.

You can tell that Cue Vapor have spent time designing something that stands out from the crowd and is an attractive looking option for a pod system.

Quick Start Guide

Filling The Pod

I’m going to repeat what I said above so that you don’t get caught out – the Cue 2.0 kit does not come with any pods as standard!

You need to make sure you grab a pack when purchasing this kit otherwise you’ve got a pretty useless battery in your hands.

filling the pod

So, when you see that drop down box in the item description (under ‘We Also Recommend’ on Vape Club’s website for example) offering you the opportunity to purchase a pack of pods…don’t hesitate to do so!

With that out of the way, filling the pod is as easy as snapping the mouthpiece off, locating the filling port (which has an eye-catching blue colour – you can’t miss it!), inserting your bottle nozzle and squeezing away.

And as always, if filling a fresh pod for the first time, let the e-liquid sit in the pod for five minutes before you start vaping.

Operation

After filling the pod, there’s not much else to say here! This is a draw activated device with no settings to adjust, there isn’t even any adjustable airflow here!

So just go ahead and slot the pod in, then puff away. After inserting the pod, all the LED lights present on the device will light up momentarily to let you know that it has been successfully inserted.

If you have any issues with this, it’s worth checking the contacts on the pods and on the device themselves and giving them a clean with a cotton swab.

LED Indicators

There’s no screen or anything like that present on the Cue 2.0 device, you just have three LED indicators that allow you to see how much battery life you have left.

If only the bottom light is illuminated, you’ve got less than 30% charge remaining, two LED lights means that there is 30-65% remaining and all three means that you have 65-100% charge left.

Charging

You have an industry standard USB Type C charging port at the base of the device and a charging cable is included in the kit (that I would most definitely swap for a pod if it was up to me!).

usb c charge

I couldn’t actually see what the maximum charging output is, but it isn’t amongst the quickest on the market that is for sure. Taking around 45 minutes to charge from flat to full.

led lightsWhen you charge your Cue 2.0 device, having the bottom LED light on permanently means you have 30% charge, when the second one lights up the device is 65% charged and when all three lights are permanently illuminated then the device is 100% charged.

How Does The Cue 2.0 Perform?

When it comes to pods, you have a couple of options at your disposal.

You can opt to purchase the 0.6ohm, 0.8ohm or 1 ohm refillable pods, which come in packs of 4 at a price point in the region of £12. Or you can use Cue Vape Pods that come pre-filled with different flavours and are 17mg nicotine strength, for £6.99 for a pack of two.

These prices are of course correct at the time of this review.

All of the compatible pods have a 2ml capacity and the pre-filled ones have the following flavours available at present:

  • Bold Tobacco
  • Chilled Menthol
  • Smooth Tobacco
  • Pure Peach
  • Mellow Mango
  • Fresh Watermelon
  • Cool Mint

I was sent the 0.8ohm refillable pods by Vape Club, so I’ll be concentrating on those in this review.

I didn’t get a chance to try out the pre-filled ones or the 0.6ohm or 1 ohm refillable ones but let us know in the comments if you have managed to do so!

On first impressions, I was left a bit underwhelmed by the fact that these are marketed as being able to be refilled around five times or more.

There’s a lot of pods on the market that I’ve used recently that can be refilled a lot more than that and I can easily get through five refills in a couple of days!

11 Refills

However, I think these are being sold a little short here. I managed eleven refills off of my first pod before I noticed the flavour dropping off and that was running various different types of e-liquids through it, such as fruits, desserts and tobaccos.

So in terms of performance, this is actually pretty damn good. Flavour delivery is pretty on point and the vape is smooth as well.

The airflow is fixed, you can’t loosen it or tighten it up. But the 0.8ohm pod delivers a fairly loose mouth to lung draw with a pretty decent amount of vapour production.

Normally, I would go for the 0.6ohm pods, but it is nice to switch it now and again. I’m certainly going to be giving them a go after trying the 0.8ohm ones out!

My second one lasted me seven refills, but I concentrated on running some quite heavy e-liquids through that to really see what it could handle.

Battery life is a big plus with this device, it consistently got me through a full days use with even enough charge left in the battery to spare when I got home. That is exactly what I look for with a pod system, if it can last me a day then it gets a thumbs up from me!

Pros

  • Looks absolutely fantastic and has solid build quality
  • Really easy to use, appeals to everyone really
  • All day battery life
  • Ergonomically designed
  • Very smooth draw
  • Good flavour from the pods

Cons

  • Doesn’t come with any pods, you need to purchase these separately
  • Have to remove the pod to fill it
  • No variable wattage
  • Airflow is fixed and can’t be adjusted
  • Only for mouth to lung vapers

Final Verdict

It seems like Cue Vapor are looking to target the new user market, or even people that just want a fuss free vape. They have developed a product here that does an excellent job of appealing to them!

Performance wise, this will do the job for its target market. It offers good flavour, certainly a step up from a disposable vape, you get a nice, tasty and flavoursome vape.

And I’ve got to say that this is one of my favourite looking devices of this year. I’m a big fan of the looks of the Cue 2.0. It’s robustly designed as well – able to stand up to all the knocks it gets from my clumsy self. It is still able to come out the other side looking smart as ever!

You can’t really get more fuss free when it comes to a pod system and you have got yourself a real stylish and premium looking product with the Cue 2.0. Plus it does the job when it comes to performance too, delivering a very smooth vape!

Vaping full time since 2012, started on cigalikes for a while then curiosity got the better of me and I moved onto an vape pens, a month or two later I was seeing people walking around with these interesting shiny tubes and I thought 'I gotta get one of those'. Before I knew it a trip down to my local B&M got me my first VW mod, an Innokin SVD, paired with an iClear 30, and I was hooked. Soon after that I was jumping to VW mods both box and tube shaped, before I then made the jump to rebuilding and thus sub ohming, with my first RDA and mech mod. These days I've come back to convenience and mainly use pods, disposables and the VOOPOO Drag H40. Most importantly I am still loving vaping!
