VaporFi Rebel II Starter Kit Review
VaporFi is one of those companies that I heard about for the first time last year. I had not known about them before that time and am honestly shocked that people have not been raving about them for longer. In fact I have been impressed with every single one of their products that I have reviewed and find their selection to be nice for both newbies and those of us who are seasoned vaping veterans. Plus as an added bonus, each of their products is offered for a reasonable price (in most cases they are more affordable than their competition).
What’s New – VaporFi Rebel II Starter Kit?
The high end of VaporFi’s personal vaporizer products is the Rebel II. This personal vaporizer actually offers you variable voltage and variable wattage which is not something that most e-cigarettes feature. It actually has a top power of 6V or 15W which is quite large for a personal sized vaporizer. The VaporFi Rebel II starter kit is priced under $200 which is higher than the lower end eGo e-cigarettes but is definitely not the most expensive of the personal vaporizer kits. Many times you might only receive the device for that price, too, and not the entire kit like what VaporFi has put together for you.
The Rebel II will actually not max out until 4 amps for their over-current limit. You will be able to use low-resistance attachments more with this vaporizer than with many. In fact, most of the eGos that are available top out at 3.5 amps or less. Being able to use the eGo at this level means that you are not going to have to worry about over current protection as much.
The Rebel II starter kit actually has two included batteries with it. This is unique because most kits only have one. There is a smaller battery that is rated at 750 mAh and a larger battery that is rated at 2800 mAh so you can definitely find one that is going to work for you. The vaporizer actually features telescope threading which means that it can support both sizes easily. Then you get the battery charger and the Rebel II glass tank. If you were to purchase the Rebel II tank alone it would cost you around $50 so the fact that it is included for under $200 really increases the overall value of the starter kit.
One the things that I feel needs discussed with any VaporFi Rebel II starter kit review is the tank. Many e-cigarette smokers prefer the cartomizer to the basic tank, yet most of the kits continue to include the basic tank instead of the cartomizer. The glass tank supports the delicious full flavor of your e-liquid. This means that you are going to get the taste that you are intended to get with the e-liquid. The flavor that is produced with this tank might be the best that I have found with any tank. It really has impressive flavor quality.
In addition the included 510 stainless steel drip tip is nice and obviously made with the same quality standards that makes VaporFi so popular. Of course I still prefer a tank that is not made from stainless steel to avoid any burns or discomfort from the tip getting too hot. Finally the tank has a nice option to be able to easily click and adjust the airflow. The nice click sound that you hear helps you to be reassured that it is in one of the correct positions without having to pay too much attention or really look at it.
Now to discuss the size of the clouds. This tank is great at producing very large clouds of vapor. I have been able to produce some of the biggest clouds ever with this tank. So if you are a cloud chaser then this tank is one that is going to make you really happy. In fact, you might even find that this tank replaces your current favorite once you have given it a shot.
The Rebel II offers superb performance as well. In fact, even as the battery is draining, you are not ever going to see a decrease in the amount of vapor production. It does have a cut off that is shorter than some of the comparable eGo options that are available today. So that means that you might not be able to puff for as long as you can with others. That being said, it is not a huge difference in time and is actually only a few seconds. As I was vaping I did find this a little annoying, but in the grand scheme of things it did not reduce the amount of time that I was able to vape to a point that it really mattered to me. I still pick up the Rebel II and use it, even with all of the other choices that I own.
In addition the Rebel II is well built. There are two parts that move, a bottom cap and a telescoping middle section. Both of these were in perfect working order, there was no scraping or squeaking. They were well lubricated and well crafted to make spinning them simple. Out of the box you are going to be able to use both 510 and eGo styles of tanks. The overall use of the Rebel II is easy, too. It has simple controls including two side buttons for wattage and voltage adjustments to be made. The fire button is easy to use as well. Plus the fire button actually lights up red when the battery power is low, so there are no questions about when you are going to need to charge it.
A few final notes that I wanted to include are that the personal vaporizer really has it all. It offers you a special three digit digital display where you can easily figure out what the wattage and the voltage are. You can adjust in .1V increments between 3.0V and 6.0V. You can also adjust in .5W increments between 3.0W and 15.0W. Plus there is a reverse battery protection so you never have problems with inserting the battery the wrong way. Finally VaporFi increases their normal 90 day warranty with this one and offers you a full year of protection which is something that is not really heard of in the vaping world.

Final Thoughts – VaporFi Rebel II Starter Kit
The VaporFi Rebel II starter kit offers you so much more than most of the other choices that are available. Best of all is that everything is included for your vaping pleasure and you are only going to need to pick up some e-liquid to be ready to vape. For under $200 I find that this is a steal and a great set up for someone who is wanting something new or different from what they currently own. Plus the Rebel II is easy enough to use that a beginner will be able to figure it out with little user error being possible. The power and performance are awesome for those of us who have been vaping for a while too.
Additionally it makes for a quick vaping experience. The three button design makes it possible for you to make quick and easy adjustments to your own experience. This means that you are never going to suffer through vaping with a set up that is not your favorite again. Instead of having to really mess with it like you would with other choices, the Rebel II makes it easier.
Now if you are trying to find the best sub-ohm experience then you need to look at something else. This type of experience is not available with this device. If you are looking for anything else then the Rebel II is really a great little personal vaporizer for anyone regardless of their experience level.
