Our VaporFi Air 2 review is another example of how American vape companies are delivering new products designed to meet the needs of a broad range of adult vaping consumers. At ECCR, we cover all of the latest vaping news and cover the leading products from the best manufacturers. The products from Smok, Kanger, Innokin etc that are sold in vape shops are great. Especially for cloud chasers. As long as you get an authentic one! Of course so many of the leading products are cloned but that’s another story.
While the vaping community spends a lot of time discussing the imported products, we like to ensure that we shine a light on what the American companies are doing. In our opinion, the US vape brands do not get the recognition that they deserve. VaporFi is our top rated electronic cigarette brand for a reason. They offer impeccable quality and a very enjoyable experience. On top of that you will be buying direct from a US based company with US based customer service.
More than that, the best US companies like VaporFi offer you direct warranty protection. If you by something from a vape shop and have a warranty issue the shop will probably refer you to the overseas manufacturer. Good luck with that. When you look at all the variables including quality, customer service, warranty and fantastic enjoyment, you will realize the perks of dealing with and buying from an American company like VaporFi. That brings me back to the original subject, the VaporFi Air 2 vaporizer / electronic cigarette.
VaporFi Air 2 Review
For the VaporFi Air 2 review, or overview, I want to go through the specs and elaborate and compare step by step.
The VaporFi Air 2 is a small, portable vape. It is not much bigger than a cigalike or cigarette style electronic cigarette. The battery is 350 mAh as compared to a typical cigalike battery rated at 250 to 280 mAh. That translates to about 30% more battery life than a cigalike.
The Air 2 operates with a vape tank that work with replaceable atomizer coils. In that sense it looks like a cigalike but works like a mod. The 1.4mL tank capacity allows for 40% more e-liquid than you get in a cigalike cartridge. Paired with a larger battery capacity the expanded e-juice capacity means you get more puffs than from a cigalike.
The stainless steel atomizer coils for vaping e-liquid have a 1.1 ohm resistance. The power output from the Air 2 is 15 watts. A cigalike atomizer can be 2.0 ohm or more with a lower power output. As a result, the Air 2 gives you more vapor production than a cigalike.
Depending on how much you vape, one coil could last you anywhere from 1 week to 3 weeks. When you notice a significant reduction in vapor output or the flavor starts to taste burnt, it is time to replace the coil.
The Air 2 atomizer coils for use with oils, essential oils or concentrates are also stainless steel with a 1.10 ohm resistance.
The Air 2 has a top airflow design that allows for a lot of air. That means a more airy, easy draw and the top flow increases flavor performance.
The safety features include over discharge protection. This helps ensure getting the longest life out of each coil.
VaporFi Air 2 Starter Kit Options
Now there are a couple of options for buying the Air 2. For our VaporFi Air 2 review, we bought the basic starter kit for $19.99. It came with the following:
1 VaporFi Air 2 Starter Kit
2 VaporFi Air 2 1.1ohm Stainless Steel Atomizers
1 USB Charging Cable
1 VaporFi Air 2 Mouthpiece
We bought this kit because for our VaporFi Air 2 review i wanted to focus on using it as an electronic cigarette. If you are interested in the Air 2 performance vaporizing oils, I have some info on that below in the section discussing using the Air 2 as an oil vaporizer.
Just in terms of additional suggestions particularly for beginners, the VaporFi Pro 3 is another option to consider. You have a lot of options from this company. They really have a massive selection. For a bigger sub ohm mod take a look at the VaporFi all in one mod. Okay, back to the VaporFi Air 2 review. Once again we come back to the value and diversity.
If you are interested in using this device for both e-liquid and oils, then it would be worth your while to take a look at these bundles. VaporFi has put together a couple of bundle packages that include a number of atomizers for oils and e-juice at a discount.
The VaporFi Air 2 vaporizer is a genuinely diverse vaping device. You can vaporize e-liquids or oils. By that measure alone it fits the bill for a lot of people. If you enjoy vaping oils or concentrates and also like to vape, well the Air 2 is a hybrid that delivers on both counts. In terms of looking at the Air 2 simply as an electronic cigarette, this device is perfect for someone looking for a compact, very portable and convenient basic vape.
The Air 2 is also for people on a budget. That budget applies to not only the initial purchase price, but also the cost of coils. So you will be able to buy the Air 2 device for $20. And then you can get 5-packs of replacement coils for only $8. That gives you big time vape for both the initial cost of the device as well as the long term cost of replacement atomizer coils.
There is another category of vaping customer that I think the Air 2 would be a good buy for. Most of us here at ECCR have the usual vape gear including a variety of mods and tanks. Sometimes carrying a mod with you is not always appropriate. For example working in an office. Or you don’t want to be making huge clouds while you driving on a cool day with the windows up. So I believe that the VaporFi Air 2 is a fantastic back up vape. Something you can throw in a shirt pocket and head out the door.
Add it all up and there are a lot of people and situations where the VaporFi Air 2 would be a great fit.
Using The Air 2 As An Oil Vaporizer
The VaporFi Air 2 is a hybrid because it will not only vaporize e-liquids but also oils and concentrates. What are oil and concentrates? They can be any type of essential oil from lavender to sandalwood to frankincense to CBD and so on. Essential oils are growing quickly in popularity. Some herbal remedies or aromatherapy oils are used in vaporizers. However the most popular oil that is vaporized is medical marijuana.
The coils that you use to vaporize e-liquid like an e-cigarette are not the coils that you will use if you want to vaporize oils. For vaporizing oils you will want the VaporFi Air 2 1.1 ohm oil atomizers. The atomizer coils for vaping and the coils for the oils are the same price so all good there.
One you install an Air 2 oil atomizer coil you essentially convert the Air 2 from an e-cigarette to a vape pen. I want to make clear in my VaporFi Air2 review that if you want to use the Air 2 strictly as an e-cig you can. If you want to use it solely as an oil pen you can or you can switch back and forth at your leisure. I tested it as an e-cig. But I did not test it as a vape pen for oils but I am confident that it will work well. I believe that at 1.1 ohms it is ideal for vapor output. That is based on how well it performed as an e-cig. And it is based on VaporFi’s proven penchant for quality in both electronic cigarette and vaporizer products.
Using The VaporFi Air 2 As An E-Cig
What Type Of E-Liquid Should You Use With The Air 2?
With a basic type of electronic cigarette with atomizers over 1.0 ohms it is generally recommended to use an e-liquid with a 70 pg and 30 vg blend. That is 70% propylene glycol and 30% vegetable glycerin. Both of these are common additives found in food, medicines, toothpaste etc. To learn more about what e-liquid is check here. In vaping for the VaporFi Air 2 review I tried 70/30 e-juice and it worked great. A strong throat hit and great flavor.
But I do want to go out on a bit of a limb here and make a different recommendation. I also vaped a 50/50 blend for the Air 2 review. I very much enjoyed the 50/50 because it is a bit gentler vape with a bit more vapor. At 15 watts and a 1.1 ohm atomizer a 50/50 e-liquid is completely appropriate and will perform very well. So that’s my feeling, go with a 50/50 e-juice.
By the way, VaporFi is an excellent source for all your vape juice needs. You can even create your own e-juice recipe and VaporFi will blend it and ship it right out to you. You can pick the flavor, the nicotine level and the VG / PG blend. VaporFi has a state of the art FDA registered lab facility staffed by professionals. No back room vape shop e-liquid going on here! The company publicly discloses independent lab reports of the e-liquid. Full transparency. So choose any e-liquid of course. But you really can’t go wrong with the quality and performance of VaporFi e-juices.
The final word on the VaporFi Air 2 review is actually four words. Those four words are value, portability, simplicity and enjoyment. This is a great kit for a beginner or as a reliable easy access and stealthy back-up! The cost of replacement coils is about 30% less than comparable devices. Great for vaping on a budget. Also, take a look at the VaporFi Loyalty program to save more.
A great value and long term value thanks to the low priced high quality stainless steel coils. For those of you who enjoy vaporizing oils as well as e-liquid, the Air 2 is ideal. Impressive vapor production for such a compact device. Great flavor. No need to say any more than that.
