E-Lites Review – A Closer Look
E-Lites are an e cig brand that have up until now been primarily focused on the UK market. The good news now though is that after working their way to becoming one of the leading e-cig brands in the UK they are moving over to supply the US market.
For this E-Lites review we bought the E200 which cost $64.99, lets have a closer look at what we found…
The E-Lites E200 kit is nice and compact, what initially struck me was how they had tried to keep everything as close to looking like the ‘real thing’ as possible. In my eyes this is a good thing, makes the whole change-over that much easier!
The ‘tough case’ doubles up as a charger with the usb cable housed at the bottom of the case, this extends a few inches to plug into your computer. The e-cig battery is screwed into a slot in the case where it charges. The remaining slots are for the ‘E-Tips’.
Overall first impression is great, quality looking product all round…
E-Lites E Cig In Use
The battery is the new ‘G9 battery’ which has been designed with a higher energy capacity to allow for longer time between charges, E-Lites also claim it last for around 30-40 cigarettes worth of vaping. Charging is simple, the ecig tip lights red when charging and then changes from amber to green when fully charged.
I’ve got to say the battery is very responsive, i did take a couple of small ‘priming’ drags but after that it was firing up the E Tip nicely. The vapor volume is very good producing a good amount of ‘smoke’, not quite up there with Green Smoke but for me it was still good enough.
As for the design, again top marks, the battery and the E-Tip keep true to the look of traditional cigarettes with the faux rings on the battery body adding to this. The battery I have has a green tip but there are also red tips available for those that are bothered.
Overall, very good battery that lasts for a good amount of vaping time whilst producing an impressive vapor volume. The only thing i would like to see is an extra battery included in this kit so i don’t have to wait between charges, these can be bought separately for $14.99. Ideally the extra battery would be a ‘mini’ to give a smaller option.
I would recommend buying an extra battery so there is no ‘down time’ or risk of getting caught out when you are away from a charging point.
Onto one of the most important aspect of any smokeless cigarette, the flavor. When compared to other brands on offer E-Lites has a limited choice of flavors. If you like to experiment with flavored cartridges such as coffee or cherry then E-Lites isn’t going to be the right e cig for you.
If you are not interested in alternative flavors then you will be happy with the E-Lites offering. They have taken the route of concentrating on the main ‘tobacco flavors’ with regular strength (reds), lights (gold) and menthol.
I have only tried the E-Lites gold refills and these were good for me (i used to smoke Marlboro Lights). Again taste is subjective but i liked it.
I can see E-Lites increasing their flavors in the future to attract a wider range of smokers and to match upto the offerings of some of the top electronic cigarette brands in the USA. For me though what they have now may be a small selection but it more than satisfies my needs!
Overall the flavor is good but for some the offering may not be big enough…
Value For Money
E-lites have set themselves at a price-point that falls in line with most other brands we have reviewed (taking Green Smoke out of the equation) at $64.99 for their E200 starter kit that comes with 5 E-Tips that are the equivalent to approx 200 cigarettes.
Their E-Tip refills come in boxes of 5 at a price of $24.99, 5 tips equals about 200 cigarettes which in turn works out at $2.49 for approx 20 cigarettes!
All in all there is a great saving to be made over the long run depending on how much you smoke.
To add to the savings there is also an E-Lites coupon code that offers free delivery, take a look at the top of this page to reveal the coupon.
E-Lites Starter kits:
- E40 Disposable (5 pack) Kit – $59.99 – I would recommend to stick with the rechargeable kits.
- E80 Starter Kit – $39.99 – Everything you need to start is there minus the hard case of the E200.
- E200 Starter Kit – $64.99 – This is the review kit and as value for money goes the one i would recommend

E-Lites Review – Overall Assessment
If you were to choose E-Lites as your choice of e-cig then you will not be disappointed. Even though there are still a few improvements that can be made to the overall starter kit packages (such as adding an extra battery) this wouldn’t be enough to put me off. The battery and flavors combine to produce a high quality smokeless cigarette that comes in at a competitive price.
