Update: Latest E Cig Buying Guide For New Vapers

Matchless Electronic Cigarette

The Matchless brand of e cigarette is another (such as VIP and E-Lites) that is focusing part of it’s resources to stocking ‘bricks and mortar’ stores as a way of supplying their product to the end user.

They do also sell online and although the website is easy enough to navigate it’s not as easy on the eye as other branded e cig websites out there.

Ecigclick were sent, free of charge, a selection of their product to review.

Matchless Products

matchless e cigarettesThere is no starter kit as such, or at least as you may have seen with other brands but the product we received (the below are all sold separately) was as follows:

Matchless rechargeable e cig, Blue – Contains 2 ‘Aquamiser Cartridges’ 1 Battery and 1 USB Charger. 

Matchless Blue King Size Disposable E Cigarette.

Matchless Red King Size Disposable E Cigarette.

Matchless Mint SuperKing Size Disposable E Cigarette.

Battery/Responsiveness

Matchless have designed their disposable e cigarette to look like an actual cigarette, this is something that many new e cig users are looking for, something that resembles a cigarette.

This is something that can be important for those trying e cigs for the first time, it does help make an easier transition from smoking.

matchless batteries

The actual disposable battery itself is attached to the cartomiser and as the name ‘disposable’ hints at you simply throw this away once it no longer works. There are two types of disposable from Matchless, the King Size and the Superking.

Again they have tried to keep things easy for the smoker to recognise and as with their tobacco cigarette counterparts the Superking version is larger than the King Size and provides more in both the amount of puffs you get and the amount of time the battery will last.

matchless e cigAccording to their website you should expect to get 300 puffs from the disposable SuperKing and 200 puffs from the disposable King Size.

These numbers of course could be different depending on the person and their vaping habits. For instance if you are taking 1.5 – 2 second drags you may get to these numbers but for those with a 4 second drag you may find this number cut by upto half, it is also dependent on the battery outlasting the cartomiser.

This is however the same for any brand. As the actual performance goes the disposables worked well and were reactive to every drag.

The rechargeable Matchless e cigarette battery is of course re-usable and after the first few charges was lasting around one hour to an hour and a half of vaping time which is just OK for an e cig this size. Again the battery responded well and helped provide a smooth draw.

Overall – The batteries for both the disposable and rechargeable e cig are reactive, the battery life on the rechargeable e cig is just OK although.

Vapour / Flavour

The matchless disposables come in 3 different and are pretty much colour coded so they are easier to understand.

They have the full strength Reds (24mg), medium matchless aquamiserstrength Blue (18mg) and the Mint which is also 18mg.

The mint and tobacco flavours were decent, not the best I have tried if you were to compare to other brands such as Vapour2 Cigs but definitely not the worse.

If it is the first e cigarette you have tried then you shouldn’t get any nasty shocks!

The vapour volume on the disposables was OK and the rechargeable e cig performed vey well in the vapour volume department.

Matchless do offer replacement cartomisers, or aquamisers as they call them. These are in a sealed tub containing 5 and are available in 24mg, 18mg, 12mg and 0mg nicotine volume for those wanting to wean themselves off nicotine gradually.

Overall – The tobacco and mint flavours were just OK when compared with others and the vapour volume is good. Whilst there is a lack of flavours on offer there is a good offering of nicotine strengths from 24mg to nicotine free.

Returns/Warranty

Matchless offer a 7 day return policy on unused and unopened product within 7 days. They also offer a 30 day warranty on their battery products. As usual please see the T & C’s on their website for upto date information!

Customer Service

They are available via email and freephone telephone as well as having an active Twitter account.

Discount Codes

We haven’t come across any Matchless discount codes as of yet but rest assured if we do we will post them here at ecigclick.

Overall – If you skipped to the end!

The Matchless product is obviously aimed at the new e cig user, so for those that have been vaping for a while and maybe tried other brands you won’t necessarily find anything new here.

However, for those brand new to vaping that maybe just want to try an e cig at a low cost to see what all the fuss is about then Matchless disposables are a good option. I would recommend the SuperKings here as you will be getting a little more product for a small additional outlay.

When it comes to the re-chargeable, again this does do the job but it still feels like a tester kit. Would be nice to see Matchless provide a more complete kit here with 5+ cartomisers and 2 batteries but even if they did have this there are other brands and kits available for just a touch more money that offer better quality and increased customisable options.

Rounding things up, Matchless for me is best suited for those that have not tried e cigs and don’t want to spend a lot of money doing so in the process. If however your budget allows then the Magnum Snaps kit from Epuffer is also a great.

I've been vaping since 2010 and been cigarette free ever since. Ecigclick was started to take a closer look at the mixed bag of e cigs that were available at the time. We have gone from a handful of reviews in 2010 to now covering a huge range of vaping gear with over 100 reviews and counting today with the help of the great review team we have here! I'm available on the blog most days, if you have any questions just use the contact tab and I'll get right back to you! Vape on...

  1. Best thing so far. Really recommend works for me, does the trick won’t go back since I got my taste buds back smell a1

  2. I really recommend these to people trying to quit smoking but not ready to completely let go. Because these look and feel quite close to actual cigarettes it really helped me cut down to just the one or two ciggies a day.

  3. BUT I have had several cartridges in the tubs that taste awful and throw away, this is approx 1 cartridge in every 5 in a pack. Taste altogether is nothing like a tobacco taste.. Retailers dont want to know. I have also bought Sky Cig which has far better taste, but £9-99 for 5 refill cartridges is expensive. E-lite is also useless. I wont try the vap things with glass bottle things. I am now stopping this Matchless because of the inconsistent taste.

  4. I like it because it feels real, taste ok and it is reasonable.
    Furthermore the delivery takes max. 2 days. And it takes only few hrs to charge. I think its max 3 hrs (not to sure). I have also heard its healthier than other e-ciggs.

  5. I can’t think of a “hate” with this ecig! I feel much healthier, Have lost my smoker’s cough, the house smell’s nicer (I didnt smoke outside in the winter), No brown fingers to scrub every day – yuck! More money in my pocket.
    I have/do try other ecig’s but this one is by far the best!!!!!

  6. Starter kit is straightforward to use. Simple to charge Carts available in red (full strength & my choice) plus other lower strength versions. They send goods off website quickly (next day) and offer free post over £25

    Packaging is nice – goos to see an ecig a brand with a classy look

    Highly recommended for those new to e- cigs or those already using elites and nice ifs as matchless are cheaper
