The Vaporfi Pro 3 starter kit comes in a dazzling array of colours and is aimed at newcomers to the vaping scene who are desperate to quit the cigs.
I say newcomers but of course established mouth to lung vapers [MTL] may enjoy vaping on it too!
It kicks out 1000mAH and comes with 2.0ohm coils so as I go into later it really is the gentlest of introductions to vaping.
US based VaporFi is one of the world’s largest and most popular vape companies with an army of fans an excellent track record for beginner – intermediate and advanced vaping styles.
The build quality of their devices are usually first rate as is the extensive juice range.
The Pro 2 was extremely well received by vapers with our very own Jonny rating it highly.
So has the next generation of the VaporFi Pro series kept up the solid tradition?
Let’s take a closer look.
As always my thoughts and opinions are my own.
Inside the Box
As always from VaporFi the packaging is very good with everything neatly packed away in separate boxes.

How To Fill the Vaporfi Pro 3 Tank
- Unscrew the top cap
- Squirt juice against the side of the tank – avoid central chimney
- Leave for a few minutes for coil to soak up – vape!
How To Change the VaporFi Pro 3 Coil
When you first open the box you will need to prime your coil – this means drizzling no more than 5 drips of e-liquid into the centre of the atomizer.
Whilst it’s important to prime all the coils you’ll use in any tank – it is an absolute imperative you do it with the Pro 3.
It’s a very very long coil and there’s a lot of cotton in there and it will take time to soak in – after priming and half filling the tank it was almost empty by the time it had all soaked in!
OK first up to get at the coil you’ll need to remove the tank from the battery.
- Turn upside down and unscrew the bottom cap
- Grab the coil by the bottom pin and remove and prime as shown above
- Slot the coil back, lining up between the two posts
- Screw on the bottom cap and put back on the battery
The coil can be swapped out with e-liquid still in the tank
Not a whole lot to talk about here as this really is as simple as vaping starter kits get – so absolutely ideal for a gentle introduction to vaping and getting off those cigarettes – more on that later.
It’s as easy as it gets to both fill the tank and swap out the coil with no need to lose any e-liquid.
Five clicks on and off and press fire to vape so it’s an absolute cinch to operate.
Charging time is super-fast and you can still vape whilst it’s charging – technical term is ‘pass through vaping’ – so perfect if you’re at your desk.
Safety features include auto shut down if fire button is pressed 7 times – short circuit protection – over discharge protection – low voltage warning and overheat protection.
I like as well the battery shuts off if the fire button is held down for 7 seconds – no chance of this going off in your bag or pocket.
And it comes in a variety of colours – I received the blue.
Choose from: black – pink – red – purple – green – silver – teal.
All colours can be mixed and matched which is a nice touch.
Design and Build Quality
Look this isn’t the best made device VaporFi has in its stable – it is what it is an easy as you like starter kit.
That’s not to say it’s cheaply made – far from it – the threads are all good and everything fits together well and it feels robust.
Design wise it looks good and is certainly compact enough for your pockets and bags and feels light but solid in your hand.
How Does the VaporFi Pro 3 Kit Perform?
I said earlier this is the perfect ‘gentle’ introduction to vaping – I say gentle because the coils are 2.0 ohms and given the battery is just 1000mAH are almost getting the exact same sensation as you would smoking a cancer stick.
Obviously this will depend on the strength of nicotine in your e-liquid but as I’m a bit old school with MTL [mouth to lung ] vaping – I vape 18mg nic in the mornings and I was getting that satisfying throat hit.
Flavour wise I was impressed and I used both a 50-50 VG PG mix and a 70-30 and the coil wicked well with both so no need to worry about having to exclusively use thinner e-liquids as it seems to cope with the thicker ones.
Vapour wise and for a 2.0 ohm coil it wasn’t that bad – look this isn’t a sub-ohm tank so you ain’t gonna win no cloud chucking competitions.
The Pro 3 is back to the vaping basics – you know giving up cigarettes!
Charging was very good going from flat to fully charged in just short of an hour and I was able to vape on this for 8 hours – two mornings running – without the need to re-charge so it’s ideal to take out and about.
I reckon this is an ideal kit to use to quit the cigs and it would be a great gift to someone you want to encourage to pack up those stinkies.
What I Like
It’s a no fuss no frills vape device that’s easy to use and gives decent flavour.
You’ll get a days work out of the battery and of course it charges quick and can be vaped whilst charging.
As for coil life – I have had this for 2 weeks and have used it every morning for a couple of hours and it’s still tastes fresh so no worries there!
I like the choice of colours too though the blue one I received is more of Royal Blue which I don’t think does the device justice – but hey colour preference aside it’s a great little starter kit.
BTW you can mix and match the colours of the tank and battery – so make sure when you’re buying the kit you chose the colour of the tank and then the colour of the battery that you want !
What I Don’t Like
Apart from the colour I received – I don’t like the stainless steel drip-tip but I’m on record saying that every time lol.
Some starter kits I’ve reviewed recently come with a delrin or plastic option and it would have been nice if VaporFi had popped one in the box – however they do sell them separate so a good marketing ploy!
And maybe another coil option – a 1.05 or 1.0 ohm coil would be a good move just to give a choice of what hit you’re gonna be getting.
Obviously this would affect the battery life a little – but I still think it would be a good move by VaporFi.
Final Review Verdict
The Vaporfi Pro 3 is what is is – a very basic vaping starter kit that may help smokers get off that horrible and deadly habit.
So to that end I can’t and won’t knock it – it’s a nice little device.
It’s simple to fill and swap coils is packed with safety features and gives a decent – not great – but decent flavour profile.
It’s in the same league as the JacVapour Series S [the new versions] – the 1000mAH Innokin Endura T20 and to some extent the Aspire K2 kit – all great little set-ups that hopefully will get folks off the filthy deadly smoking habit.
So don’t expect to win any cloud competitions – treat this as exactly what it is and you’ll be good to go.
