Best Vape Pens Australia 2019

Vaporesso - Sky Solo Plus Kit

Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus Kit

Top Quality Vape Pen!

Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus Kit

  • Good deal of coil options
  • Simple to fill
  • Allows pass through vaping
  • Good battery life
  • Excellent build quality
  • 3.5mL tank capacity is fairly good

  • Can’t adjust air flow
  • Stock coils aren’t ideal
  • Drip tip isn’t replaceable


What's In The Box

The newest vape pen from Vaporesso, the Sky Solo is about as good as you can get with an AIO type of device. Like most other vape pens, the Solo only utilizes a single button for operation and is quite simple to run. As is the norm with current generation vape pens, this particular pen uses a colour coded battery level indicator to show how much juice is left. That being said, there are a few other quality of life features that makes this device shine out over many others.

The first is the 1500mAh battery. While it’s going to take a little over two hours to fully charge, you’ll get a respectable amount of usage before needing to do so. Vaping moderately, this device easily got me through the day without getting down into the red.

The second thing I like about this vape pen are the multitude of coil options available. It’s compatible with everything in the Vaporesso NRG GT and QF coil lines, and there are plenty to pick from to get your preferred experience.

Lastly, this particular device is designed for pass through vaping. To briefly explain, this type of vaping basically means you can use the Sky Solo while it’s plugged into the charger. Sure, this isn’t anything overly special, but the convenience factor is one of the most important when it comes to new vapers.

One thing to note however, the stock coil this kit comes with isn’t the greatest. I love mesh coils and all, but the device is underpowered for what it comes with. I’d replace your stock coils with something meant for lower wattages, otherwise you’re going to find yourself running out of battery charge real quick.

The 1500mAh built-in battery will last most users a whole day on a single charge (plus has a decent recharge time of 2 hours). The large battery capacity doesn’t effect the feel of the T20s, which is comfortable to hold and the whole device feels well balanced. While not small enough to be consider a stealth device it will fit comfortably in your pocket or purse.

Each kit includes one Endura T20 Mod, a Prism T20S Tank with coil, a spare Prism S Coil, one spare drip tip, a USB charging cable, and a user manual.

One of the downsides of cig-a-likes is the lack of power from it. With the Vaper Empire V-Twist, users not only get more power, they can also adjust it to their liking. Variable voltage allows users to dial in their preferred output, from 3.2v up to 4.8v, to suit their taste. Cig-a-likes top out at 4.2v, and while this may be enough for some, there are those who’d like to push things up further.

Aside from variable voltage, the V-Twist also allows users to adjust the device’s airflow. From mouth-to-lung inhales to direct-lung inhales, the V-Twist caters to both styles of vaping, and everything in between. More airflow results in more clouds, while a restricted airflow gives users a similar draw to analog cigarettes. Combined with a 900mAh battery, the V-Twist is a vape pen capable of giving you your preferred vape, all day long.

Buying Guide and F.A.Q's

What is a vape pen?

vape Pens


A vape pen is a small e-cigarette device that’s shaped like a pen – hence the name. It has a rechargeable battery that powers up the coils in the atomizer or tank. A step-up from cig-a-likes, vape pens offer more power than the former yet still remain as portable. Being larger than cig-a-likes, you also get more battery life out of vape pens as well as the option to swap out atomizers, cartridges, or tanks.

Why would I choose a vape pen?

If you find cig-a-likes too weak for your taste and want something more powerful and give you some degree of customization, vape pens are a better fit.

back to menu ↑

The different types of vaporizer pens

Though they all look similar, there are various types of vape pens. There are some that utilize THC and CCBD vape oil instead of e-juice. There are some that can be fired by a button, while some are draw-activated (wherein you simply inhale through the mouthpiece and the device turns on). Some have an adjustable power output, though these tend to cost more. Others have a constant voltage/wattage while some has its output depend on the charge remaining in the battery.

back to menu ↑

How do vape pens work?

Vape pens work very similarly to cig-a-likes wherein a battery is activated, whether via button or inhale, and the coil in the atomizer is heated up. This in turn turn the e-juice into vapour, which is then inhaled through the mouthpiece. Of course, once the battery runs out of power, you’ll need to charge it and when the e-juice inside the atomizer tank or clearomizer runs out, you’ll need to refill it.

back to menu ↑

Anatomy of a vape pen?

Like all e-cigarette devices, vape pens have three main components: the atomizer, the battery, and the mouthpiece.

Atomizers can take on various shapes and capacities, but its function remains the same: to vaporize e-juice into vapor.

The battery can be draw-activated or fired with a button, but its main purpose is to provide power to heat up the coil in the atomizer.

Finally, the mouthpiece, which may not seem like much, but without which you won’t be able to inhale the vapour with. Mouthpieces come in different shapes, sizes, colors, and materials, but what it does is to act as the bridge between the device and yourself.

Frequently Asked Vape Pen Questions

When buying a vape pen, know that you are entering a much more advanced world of vaping that is slightly different from cig-a-like starter device. With vape pens, you are able to customize your vape experience by adjusting the power, swapping out atomizer heads and refilling with your own e-liquid.

As with any new experience, there will be questions.

Lets look at some frequently asked questions about vape pens.

back to menu ↑

How do you refill a vape pen?

With cig-a-likes, once you run out of e-juice, you change the whole atomizer with a new one. With vape pens, you simple refill it and you are good to go.

However, the question remains, how do you refill?

Well, not all tanks are created equal nor refilled the same. But the general idea is you unscrew the top cap, insert the nose of your e-liquid bottle into the refill hole, and slowly fill it with e-liquid.

Once full, you simply screw back the top cap and you are good to go. Now, some tanks might require you to remove the whole glass part and refill from the bottom, but the general idea is the same.

back to menu ↑

When and how do I replace the atomizer on a vape pen?

Atomizers last a good while before needing a replacement. But eventually, they do wear out and you’ll need to replace it with a new one.

You’ll know when your atomizer needs replacing when the vapour starts to weaken and the flavour starts to wane. You can still use it, though the experience won’t be as satisfying.

If your atomizer stops firing at all is another sign it needs replacing.

Now how do you replace it?

After draining the tank or clearomizer of its e-juice, you can remove the tank and unscrew the atomizer head. This is usually located in the middle part of the tank. Screw in the new atomizer, place a few drops of e-liquid on the atomizer, and replace the tank.

Fill the tank with e-juice and let it seep through the atomizer’s cotton for a few minutes. Once the new atomizer is settled with e-juice, you can start vaping again.

For more information read our full guide on when to change your atomizer.

How long will my Vape Pen’s battery last?

There are two answers to this question, one that pertains to daily use and another that means the whole life span of the battery.

When it comes to daily use, the battery can last a day or so of moderate vaping for batteries with 900mAh or more. Chain vapers might find themselves recharging at least once in the middle of the day.

Though larger mAh batteries, one with 2000mAh or more, can last you a whole day of chain vaping as long as you don’t do sub-ohm builds.

As for the whole life span of the battery, expect it to last a good year or so. After the first year, you might notice some drop-off in daily battery life, and after two years, this drop off might be too massive to make it usable.

Of course this all depends on how often you use the device. I have had batteries last me for more than three years because I cycle them with other batteries.

back to menu ↑

What kind of maintenance do I need to do?

With every device, maintenance is required to ensure it lasts a long time. With vape pens, a weekly clean up is ideal, though monthly will suffice.

Batteries must be kept clean and dry always. There will be times when e-liquid will spill or leak onto the battery. When this happens, wipe it off completely. Remove the tank if possible and wipe dry the whole battery.

For the tank, dismantle it and wash it all with running water. You can soak them in vodka too if you wish to remove all traces of flavor from it.

Don’t get the atomizers wet though since they have cotton in them that loses its efficiency when wet. Unless you are using rebuildable atomizers, keep the atomizer heads away from water.

These questions all correlate to which Vape Pen model is right for you, while only you can truly answer them, let us help you by breaking it down.

Whats the difference between a vape pen and an e-cigarette?

Vape pens have been around since forever. When vaping first burst into the scene, there were two kinds of e-cigarettes available for users – cig-a-likes and vape pens. Cig-a-likes are considered entry level devices designed to mimic the feel and ergonomics of smoking.

As for vape pens, these were offered as a more ‘advanced’ option, providing more power and customization at the cost of being a bit more bulky than cig-a-likes. The size difference between cig-a-likes and vape pens are substantial, but vape pens are still portable. Thus, users looking for a more advanced cigarette than their cig-a-likes aren’t sacrificing much in terms of portability.

While cig-a-likes will always have its niche in the market, vape pens too have their fans looking for a portable, customizable, and more powerful alternative. Below we have the best vape pens for users looking to explore the world of vaping more and upgrade from their cig-a-like starter kits.

Choosing a Vape Pen Guide

back to menu ↑

How to choose the right Vape Pen

Choosing the right vape pen is always a personal thing. Whatever you hear from others don’t always match with what you want or need. That said, the best we can do is guide you through the process.

There are a ton of vape pens out there and choosing the right one for you might seem like an impossible task. Aside from the aesthetics, you also need to consider the power you need, the amount of customization you want, the ergonomics, and of course, your budget.

There are vape pens that cost upwards of $100, while some less than $30. Some affordable vape pens perform better than the more expensive ones, while some are worth every penny.

Vape pen features to consider

If you just need something where you can refill the ejuice, there are devices for that.

If you need variable voltage, there’s a vape pen for you. If you want to go sub-ohm, you can check out the more advanced models. There are vape pens that can do one thing well, while there are some that do all things better. Price matters of course.

If you need a vape pen that does all of the above, and then some, then be prepared to shell out more.

In a nutshell, it helps to do a little research first about the devices you are interested in.

Why pay extra for variable voltage if you won’t need it?

Why save a few bucks for a simple device when you know you’ll need more. The best advice we can give is to enjoy the journey. As long as it keeps you off cigarettes, then more power to you.
