To start our Vapor King review we have to say that the product is actually the only 3-piece electronic cigarette (with no pre-filled cartridges) we have on our review site. We usually prefer the 2-piece design, because it is much more convenient - there's no hassle with the e-juice and you can replace cartomizer within seconds. But we decided to try Vapor King out, and and we are pleasantly surprised.
- It's cheaper - if you buy the juice separately, it is cheaper than buying pre-filled cartridges or cartomizers
- Lots of vapor - the eTank design and powerful battery can produce loads of vapor
- Easier to refill than other 3-piece e cigs - with regular tank the e-juice is stored in an absorbent material (that is in the cartridge), and you never know when you have added enough juice or not. But with Vapor King, there is no absorbent material, you can visually see the liquid and know when it is full or when you need to add more juice (and there is no leakage of juice as well).

Vapor King Design
The Vapor King is a three-piece electronic cigarette made up of a battery, an atomizer, and an eTank cartridge. The over-all Vapor King unit is just a bit larger than your average “100” sized cigarette, and about the same width in diameter, avoiding the “bulky” look of many current e-cig brands by keeping things as trim and sleek as possible. The Vapor King is offered in several different colors, including:
- White (with orange LED)
- Black (with blue LED)
- Blue (with blue LED)
- Red (with red LED)
- Green (with green LED)
- Pink (with purple LED)
- Stainless Steel (with blue LED)
Having so many colors to select from makes it easy to find something that perfectly suits you.
The Vapor King battery is a 5v lithium ion battery, 65cm long and 9.2mm in diameter. The VK battery is offered in both manual and automatic styles, giving the user a choice of how they go about their vaping experience. The manual battery involves holding down a small button on the side of the battery casing in order to activate the battery/atomizer, while the automatic style does this automatically the instant the user begins inhaling from the ecig. The battery takes about three hours to fully charge, regardless of style.
Atomizer & Cartridge Specs
The system behind the Vapor King cartridges is a new design that most other brands of electronic cigarettes have yet to ascend to. The system the Vapor King is equipped with is called Tanktronics® atomizer technology and uses eTanks®(improved cartridges) to retain the nicotine liquid. Tanktronics differs from your average electronic cigarette atomizer by creating a direct seal from the inside of the atomizer to the inside of the eTank, and operates via a direct flow of e-liquid. Competing products that use older technologies do not offer a direct flow of e-liquid into the atomizer, thereby offering a less than optimal performance. This is because they use an absorbent material inside of the cartridge, so when inhaling from these older cartridges, you are actually sucking vapor from liquid that is sitting in an absorbent material, instead of freely floating inside of an eTank. Making this change is absolutely a leap forward in electronic cigarette technology. When an old style cartridge get's low on liquid, it starts tasting off, and if it gets too low and the atomizer starts drying out, you can actually damage your atomizers ability to create vapor, leaving you with a permanent burnt taste. With the Vapor King eTank, you can actually see the level of e-liquid through the transparent cartridge. This way the user can always keep it full and operating at its maximum level, ensuring that the atomizer is never damaged as a result of low liquid levels. This solves that issue, saves on e-liquid, improves the quality of taste, and ensures an excellent throat hit (feeling at back of throat upon inhaling) at all times.
