Welcome to Versed Vaper. We’re avid vapers and we’re here to help you buy, use, and enjoy the vaping products that you use every day. Our goal is to bring you the highest-quality vaping information, reviews and recommendations to further our dream of a smoke-free future.
Our team is made up of real vapers who live and breathe the latest vaping technology. Together, we help up to 500,000 people around the globe find and use the vaping products that they love every month.
With the amount of vaping misinformation and demonization that is out there, we set out to create a platform where we could share the objective, study-backed truth about vaping, while helping smokers make the switch to a better alternative. Contrary to the scare stories that are out there, vaping has huge potential as a Tobacco Harm Reduction tool and has helped millions of former smokers to change their lives for the better.
Our team has decades of combined vaping experience between us and we use this experience to educate and help our readers make better informed decisions about their purchases. Like a personal advisor or a close friend, we offer honest, clear, and unbiased advice, as well as tips and tricks backed by our hands-on, in-depth testing.
We’ll tell you what the best vaping products are, where you can buy them, and how to use them for the best vaping experience possible. Why? Because we care about vapers around the world. The fact is, we know that you work hard for your money, so we in turn work hard to provide genuine, honest, and accurate information that you can rely on.
Whether you’re seeking general information on e-cigarettes and vaping, information on vaping safety, the latest vaping news, recommendations for new gear, or reviews on the latest vaping products, our world-class experts are here to help. We live and breathe vaping and you can trust us to tell it as it is.
Stuck on what to buy? Don’t fret; it can be overwhelming to choose from the hundreds of available disposables, pod vapes, mods, tanks, and ejuices. Simply send us an email about your product purchasing questions and we’ll tell you what to buy and why.
Our help and advice extends beyond your initial purchase too. We know that the questions and concerns don’t stop once the vape is in your hands. Have questions about your device? Confused on what ejuice to use? Even if you have a question regarding vaping itself, we’re here to help you on your vaping journey, every step of the way.
Versed Vaper was founded in 2018 as a small team mostly based in Toronto, Canada. We quickly became a go-to source for vaping information and recommendations thanks to our in-depth and unbiased reviews; a position that we still hold to this day.
Since then, we’ve carefully expanded our team to include only the most knowledgeable and experienced vapers with a true passion for Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR). Today, we have team members all across the globe and help up to 500,000 readers a month in the United States, Canada, the UK, Europe and other parts of the world.
Versed Vaper continues to be known for its in-depth reviews, accurate information, and unbiased recommendations on the latest vaping products. We are grateful and thankful for each and every reader that we are able to reach and work hard to continue providing vaping information, reviews, news, and recommendations that you can trust.
Why we care
The team at Versed Vaper are just like you: vapers who want to stay informed and get the most out of their vaping devices. We don’t write about vaping because we have to, we do it because we want to. In this era of information that we live in, knowledge is power and we want to give our readers the knowledge that empowers them to make smart, informed choices about vaping as an effective Tobacco Harm Reduction tool.
We all know that cigarettes are bad news. When a cigarette is burned it releases over 5,000 different chemicals and more than 70 may cause cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. According to the CDC, there are around 480,000 deaths per year from smoking in the United States (including deaths caused by second-hand smoke). If you ask us, that’s 480,000 deaths too many.
But quitting smoking is hard. It is estimated that an average of just 5% of people who quit smoking cold turkey will succeed in stopping for longer than 6 months.
Although vaping has not been approved as a smoking cessation product in prominent markets like the USA, there is high-level support and promotion of e-cigarettes as a smoking cessation treatment option in countries like the United Kingdom and New Zealand. Studies have also shown that vaping is up to 95% less harmful than smoking, providing strong evidence for vaping as an effective Tobacco Harm Reduction tool.
To date, there have been no deaths reported to be caused by vaping nicotine-based liquids alone. That is a striking statistic (or lack of statistic) considering that approximately 8% of the US population, or around 27 million people, use a vape regularly.
Vaping can be a powerful tool but you need the right setup to stick with it. That’s why we’ve published hundreds of articles and reviews that tell you when something is awesome, average, or just plain awful. We live, breathe, and sleep vaping and this allows us to give our readers powerful insights and the expert information they need in order to get the best vaping experience possible.
How we test
The feedback and recommendations that come from our team members is supported by decades of combined vaping experience. We take great satisfaction in our independence and meticulous review-testing procedures and work hard to bring you the most accurate and honest vaping reviews on the web.
Our team of world-class vaping journalists includes not only subject-matter specialists but also the same people for whom we write reviews: those who are interested in using and learning about the greatest and most effective vaping products available.
This is our promise to you:
- Our integrity cannot be bought. We do not accept payment to give products positive reviews. Our reviews are completely honest and we retain complete and final say over the content of our reviews.
- We have never, and will never, accept payment to place a product on any of our buyer’s guides.
- We review what we believe our readers want to see.
- We’ll tell you the honest truth about if we think a product is good, average, or just plain awful; not what the brands want you to read.
- If a product doesn’t meet our high standards, we’ll tell you why.
- We test products as real vapers in real-world usage scenarios.
- We test each product for a minimum acceptable number of days before writing our reviews to ensure that each and every product is thoroughly tested.
- We do not allow brands to preview our reviews before publication.
Our rating process
We use a five-star rating process to keep things simple and easily understandable. One star means a product that you should avoid at all costs, five stars means a product that you can buy without hesitation.
Vaping products can be very different from one product type to another; it wouldn’t be sensible to rate a box mod in the same way as we rate a disposable vape. Because of this product variation, we rate our products based on a number of different attributes and criteria depending on the product type.
For example, disposable vapes are rated on different criteria than pod vapes, and pod vapes are rated on different criteria than box mod and tank kits.
Examples of attributes that we use for rating are:
Design & Build Quality: How is the appearance of a product? Is it attractive and practical, or ugly and unorthodox? Is it made of high-quality materials or does it feel cheap? How is the fit and finish?
Features: Does the product offer the features that you would expect from a good, modern product of its type?
Usability: Is the vape easy to use with the features that it offers? Is it better suited for beginners or for experienced vapers? Are the buttons and screen (if offered) in the right place? If there is a UI, is it easy to navigate or convoluted?
Performance: How does the device perform overall? Does it provide a good vaping experience or does it leave something to be desired? In the case of disposable vapes, pod vapes, and tanks, how is the flavor that the product provides? Does it offer good vapor and good vapor quality? Is the draw smooth?
Battery Life & Charging: What is the battery capacity and how long does the battery last during regular use? Are you going to be recharging frequently or is this a device for road trips? Is the battery the expected capacity for a device of its size? How fast does it charge? Does it support pass-thru charging?
Value: Is the product a good value for the price when considering all that it offers? In other words, for the quality of the design and construction, the features that it offers, the battery life, usability, and performance, is it worth spending your hard-earned money on?
Why trust us?
We don’t give good reviews or recommend products on our buyer’s guides because a company asks us or is incentivizing us to do so; a good review on Versed Vaper means that we truly believe that the product deserves it. Our integrity cannot be bought and we have never, and will never, accept payment to give a product a positive review or to place a product on our buyer’s guides.
We solely determine the products that we review and place on our buyer’s guides. We remain completely independent and always tell it as it is, regardless of what a brand may want us to say. Our buyer’s guides and reviews are, and will always remain, completely honest. We retain complete and final say over their content to bring you honest information that you can rely on to help you make your purchase.
While we sometimes purchase the products that we review, we often receive products directly from the manufacturer. However, this does not in any way affect our thoughts or opinions on the product. Oftentimes, receiving the product directly from the manufacturer is the only way to review a product before it hits the shelves. No matter how we acquire our products for review, our review team tells it as it is and does not sugar-coat their thoughts or opinions.
But we don’t just stop with what we think. We pay attention to the thoughts of vapers in the community. Who would know better than vapers out there using the products every day? Practical experience with vaping products is often the best indicator of what’s really good. If something doesn’t hold up for the average vaper, we can’t give it our recommendation.
