Vype ePen 3 Starter Kit
Vype ePen 3 Starter Kit Description:
While closed pod systems are still somewhat new to the vaping market, many brands have already developed their own closed pod devices to varying results. There are of course those that have failed to meet expectations, but the Vype ePen 3 is in no way one of those devices. Developed by British American Tobacco (BAT), the Vype ePen 3 is a unique closed pod e-cigarette that was carefully constructed and built with BAT’s 100+ year history as a tobacco giant. While some may question the motivations of a tobacco company making a vaping product, the Vype ePen 3 is first and foremost an e-cigarette, designed to help people transition to vaping from smoking.
At first glance, the Vype ePen 3 may not look like the most technically impressive device, and to some extent, it really isn’t. There’s no variable wattage control, no display, and no controllable airflow. That being said, the appeal of the Vype ePen 3 doesn’t lie in its feature, but instead in its simplicity and overall ease of use. This design ethos isn’t uncommon in closed pod systems, and the Vype ePen 3 perfectly exemplifies this ethos in its overall construction and the way it functions.
Ultimately, the Vype ePen 3 presents vapers with a portable, easy-to-use, and flavourful option for both new and experienced vapers. The various pod flavours ensure that all vapers should find something they enjoy, while the single button operation ensures that simplicity is the main focus of the device and vaping it is as easy as pressing a single button.
Design and Features
Measuring in at 123 x 27 x 18mm, the Vype ePen 3 is a truly compact e-cigarette that should fit comfortably in a user’s pockets, while still being comfortable in the hand. Speaking of comfort, the unique curves and shape of the device make it incredibly ergonomic and extremely comfortable to hold and use. The exterior of the device is a high-quality polycarbonate, keeping both weight and costs down, while still providing a sense of ruggedness and that ability to take some abuse. The Vype ePen 3 is currently available in a variety of colours, including black, blue, silver, gold, red, and white.
Looking next at the internals of the device, the ePen 3 may not seem like the most technologically impressive device, but what it does feature is everything necessary for an enjoyable vaping experience. The 650mAh battery is housed in the body of the device, and should give vapers more than enough power to make it through a day of vaping. As a closed pod system, the device doesn’t have any sort of variable wattage control, nor does it need this feature at all. Instead, the Vype ePen 3 outputs a set amount of power, based on the charge remaining on the battery, which is carefully set to properly power the coils and produce rich vapor without causing burnt hits. The battery itself can be charged via a micro USB charging port, allowing users to give power to their device wherever they are.
While battery consumption will depend on how much a user vapes, the 650mAh cell should provide enough power to finish a single pod. The charger for the ePen 3 offers a 0.5-amp rate, allowing the device to refill its battery in approximately 75 minutes. The device also allows for passthrough use, meaning you can still vape it while it’s charging.
Finally, the Vype ePen 3 does come with an LED indicator, located on the fire button on the device, which helps indicate the remaining charge on the battery. This basic design feature fits quite well with the overall design of the device, and is easily visible even when a user is vaping on the device. The colour of the LED will help indicate the remaining charge on the ePen 3:
The LED will also indicate battery levels while the device is charging:
Green continuous: 100%
Green pulsing: 85-100%
Red continuous: 10-85%
Red pulsing: 0-10%
