Multicig by Multivape
Multicig are a UK brand based out of Leicester that have a really tight selection of e cig products. They have a disposable, a cig-a-like and a ‘Vape Pen’ kit which offers longer battery life and improved performance. The latter, the Multivape, is the kit we are going to be taking a closer look at with this review.
This was sent to us free of charge for the purposes of this review but as always our views are our own.
In the box / Presentation
The Multivape starter kit comes in a tidy package and contains the following:
- 1 x Aspire 900 mAh manual battery
- 1 x Aspire BDC Clearomiser
- 1 x 7ml bottle of e-liquid (Tobacco leaf or Menthol Mist)
- USB Charger
Battery / Responsiveness
The Multivape kit comes complete with a 900 mAh manual battery that is finished in stainless steel, which I personally think looks great.
The first thing to note here is the quality of the battery, many kits you will come across similar to this can be generic EGO type batteries and whilst 95% of the time there is nothing wrong with these it can sometimes be a bit hit and miss. The great thing about the Multivape kit is that they are using components made by a brand called Aspire who are a one of the bigger players in the e cig world that manufacturer some quality e cig products. So definitely a plus point.
The battery has the usual features that would be expected with e cigs now a days with the 5 click on/off function and flashing indicator to let you know when the battery needs a re-charge.
Performance wise the 900 mAh battery was easily seeing me through most of the day before a re-charge was needed so all good there. I would however still recommend adding a spare battery to your order so you can alternate batteries and ensure you always have a functioning e cig. Nothing worst than running out of charge when you need your nicotine fix!
The coils used in the clearomiser are also a lower resistance coil (1.8ohm) that can result in the battery running down a little quicker so the extra battery is a good safeguard.
When a charge is needed it’s a simple case of screwing the battery into the USB charger, the light on the USB will be red to indicate the battery is charging, it will then turn green when the charge is complete. One very important thing to note here is to only use the chargers that come with the e cig battery.
This isn’t just with the Multivape battery but is applicable to any e cig brand you buy, don’t be tempted to use chargers meant for other electrical gear! Very important, this is the reason there have been reports of exploding batteries recently!
Overall – Very good, the Aspire battery performs well and has a quality feel, I was getting pretty much a full day of moderate vaping from the battery.
Vapour / Flavour
Again Multivape have used an Aspire made clearomiser and this one is very good, the Aspire BDC.
Flavour wise there are two options with the e cig kit – Menthol and Tobacco in a PG/VG mix, 18mg nicotine strength. Not a huge choice but for those new to e cigs it’s all you need as a starting point.
I tried both flavours and while I personally found the Tobacco Leaf to be one of the better tobacco flavours I have tried, giving a good realistic taste, the Menthol Mist was probably at the bottom rung of the menthol’s I have come across. It just came across too overpowering for my personal taste, this could be down to the nicotine strength though which is higher than my normal 6mg/11mg preference. As always though flavours are without doubt a personal preference.
Another thing of note is the vapour volume, with the Tobacco Leaf this was excellent, I was getting tons of vapour. This is mainly down to two things, first being the 1.8 ohm coil which allows more power to the coil which in turn sends more heat to the e-liquid. The other is that the e-liquid is a PG/VG mix, VG does allow for more vapour in general.
The good thing if you are moving up from cig-a-likes to vape pens or are simply starting here is that you can have a good play around with e-liquid flavours and there are a lot out there! For me though it is half the fun trying out new things. Multivape do of course have their own e-liquid selection and while still fairly small they do have Apple, Coffee and Vanilla to sample.
The only downside here is that they are only available in a minimum of 15ml bottles which is quite a lot if you just wanted to try the flavour out.
Buying replacement parts
Of course replacement parts and e-liquid will need to be purchased further down the line. The first thing you will find you need is e-liquid, Multivape offer 15ml and 30ml bottles in 12mg or 18mg nicotine strength.
The second thing is the coil heads, these can last anything from 6 refills and up, when the flavour starts to change this is the indicator new heads are needed.
Multivape sell 1.8 ohm coils in packs of 5.
I would suggest buying spares as soon as you can so you are not having to wait for new parts to arrive. The idea is to reduce disruption to vaping as much as possible to give you the greatest chance to stay of the tobacco.
The only thing I would like to see on their e-liquid product page is more info on the e-liquid origin as well as what is in the e-liquid. As it stands it doesn’t even say whether the e-liquid has a PG/VG base or a mix of the two. Also smaller tester packs for the different flavours would be a great way to test out the juice without having to invest in a big bottle.
Overall – The Tobacco Leaf I found to be very good, the Menthol Mist not so much for my tastes, I didn’t get on with this at all. The kit comes with 1.8 Ohm coils which produce some great vapour volume. Taking out the menthol everything was great.
Returns / Warranty
Multicig do have a graphic stating they offer a ’30 Day Money Back Promise’ although I could not find any information on this on their site (at time of writing) so I can’t comment on what it is they actually offer.
I did email customer services but after an initial quick couple of responses, that didn’t answer my question, I failed to hear back which was quite disappointing. I am also no clearer as to what their returns policy actually is?
Multicig can be contacted by phone, email and they are active on Facebook and Twitter. Response was initially quick via email but my last response to them didn’t get a reply.
Overall – Final Verdict
Multicig have put together a great product in the Multivape and using both an Aspire battery and Aspire BDC clearomiser goes some way to ensuring the quality is good. I really don’t have too many negatives about this e cig kit, the only thing I didn’t like was the Menthol Mist e-liquid, but taste as we know is a subjective thing.
So just to summarise:
What we liked
- Overall quality and performance is very good
- The Aspire BDC clearomiser is a great performer good flavour and lots of vapour
- Great option for new vapers wanting performance over the ‘cig-a-like’
- Great option for cig-a-like e cig users looking to make the step up
- Tobacco leaf e-liquid flavour is very good
What we didn’t like
- Menthol Mist e-liquid flavour wasn’t good (for us)
- Returns Policy not clear on website and customer services couldn’t advise what their return policy was.
