Vgo 2 Mini Starter Kit
Update: The VGO kits are no longer produced by Jacvapour. They have been replaced by the Series S starter kits which are far better.
I have reviewed a number of e cigs from Jac Vapour (the series S is one of my favourite so far) and have yet to have a bad experience not only from the products I have used but from the company as a whole. So when I found out they had stocked a mini version of their VGO e cig I just had to try it!
I bought the Vgo 2 kit for £39.99 and as per usual all was delivered in good time. Let get stuck straight in and see what we get.
In the box / Presentation
The Vgo 2 mini starter kit packaging is a breath of fresh air right from the start.
The usual magnetic flip top box has been done away with and replaced by a cool, compact perspex presentation box.
I know it’s just a box but as first impressions go this is really good!
Inside the box you will find the following neatly presented on 2 layers:
- 2 400mAh manual batteries
- 2 Clear Tanks
- 1 Lanyard
- 1 USB Charger
- Instruction Manual
Battery / Responsiveness
This vape pen kit comes with two manual 400 mAh batteries that measure in at 48mm in length.
There is also an option to choose from three colours: rubberised black, rubberised white and stainless steel. I went for the stainless steel battery option which I have to say looks really good!
At the time of this review I have been using the e cigarette for around 2 weeks and I have found no issues with the performance whatsoever.
I have used another similar e cig in the Olympian Mini Ego and I actually had a couple of issues with this but not so with the Vgo 2, it was smooth and reactive.
The only time it dipped slightly in performance was due to the battery reaching near empty, so it’s just a case of switching to the spare and getting your other battery on the charge.
In terms of the amount of vaping time, I was getting around 5/6 hours of moderate vaping. For batteries of this size this is very good indeed!
For me, I could use this as a main e cig but if you are a heavy vaper then this would be a great back up device or something you could use when you are out of the house and need something a bit more compact.
The battery also has an on/off switch that is activated either way by pressing the button 5 times in succession, this again just helps with battery life stopping any unwanted button pressing in your pocket.
Overall – The battery performance is great for its size and the stainless steel version I opted for looks good as well. No negatives that I have come across.
Vapour / Flavour
The starter kit doesn’t come with any e-liquid so you will need to add this to your order if you don’t have any. I have been using the JAC Vapour Smoking range which I have been using a lot recently and still not sick of it yet!
You do of course get two clear tanks with the Vgo 2 kit which will hold 1.6 ml of e-liquid, these are good performers and I was getting good amount of vapour with them.
When they need replacing Jacvapour prices start from £4.79 and for this you can expect 10-15 refills so does work out to be good value.
The good thing though about the Vgo2 Mini e cig is that it is also compatible with the cartomisers on the site, if you go for the 35mm cartomisers then this will give you an even smaller e cig.
I actually use the cartomisers instead of the clear tank if I am going to be taking this out of the house, purely for the reason that it doesn’t ‘stick out’ as much.In the image here I have a black 50mm cartomiser with the battery cover cone.
Unfortunately I forgot to buy the stainless steel cover cone so was using the black one I already had from the VGO e cigarette kit. Doesn’t quite match up but you get the idea! Jacvapour also have stainless steel cartos as well which are definitely next on my list!
Overall- Doesn’t come with e liquid so remember to buy some but the clear tanks that are included are very good, I had no issues with leaking or performance, they made for a very nice vape.

Returns / Warranty
This is where Jac Vapour stand out head and shoulders above many other electronic cigarette brands. They offer a 14 day money back guarantee (see T&C’s) as well as warranties on their batteries and PCC’s.
I have had a battery die within the time period and have to say they make it so easy to get a replacement, I had one in my hand 2 days after informing them of the problem! It really does give you the confidence to use their products without the hassle having to jump through hoops should you ever encounter a problem.
Full marks here!
Again, spot on. I have had dealings with them for a number of things (not just when I had a problem) and they are quick to respond to any questions or queries you may have. Contact can be made via email and phone. They are also active on Twitter and Facebook.

Overall – If you skipped through everything!
Without trying to sound too ‘hyped up’ this really is a great little kit that I found very little to fault.
Who is it suited to?
New Vapers: It hits quite a broad set of users due to its performance and size. I would say if you are a new to the world of e cigarettes and are not too bothered about getting an e cig that resembles a tobacco cigarette then this will be great as the size isn’t too daunting.
It won’t take you too long to get the hang of buying and refilling your own e-liquid, it’s dead easy. If you don’t want to do this you can of course buy pre-filled cartomisers.
Current E Cig Users: If you are using a smaller e cigarette, one that probably looks a little like a tobacco cigarette, then this is a good second device to buy.
If you have considered one of the big ‘cigar sized’ batteries but have ultimately been put off by the size then the Mini Vgo 2 is a great alternative that will also help you make the transition up to something bigger.
Current VGO/EGO/MOD Users: This isn’t going to be your main vape, far from it but as a backup device for out of the house it is great.
If you are not too comfortable vaping your 900 mAh battery out in public or at the pub, they are usually overkill for a few hours out anyway, then the 400mAh battery on the Mini Vgo2 will do you proud.
So there you have it, it really can do a job for all levels of vaper.
