Everyone loves a good Clipper product and when they announced they were releasing their own line of electronic cigarettes, the world was waiting with bated breath. Well… I was anyway. Believe it not, despite the big name, Clipper Brio was a pretty difficult ecig to track down. Luckily, I’ve got the exclusive links in the Clipper Brio Review!
The only place I managed to find this e-cigarette was my local market and Amazon. You can find it at this link and at the moment, it’s just £15.99 which actually isn’t a bad price. When you put this up against the other bigger names in the cigarette industry, you’ll understand.
Clipper Brio Starter Kit – £15.99
At £15.99, the Clipper Brio will give you one battery, one tank and the USB charger. You won’t get e-liquid so you’ll need to pick this up elsewhere. The ECigWizard starter kit gives you pretty much the same pack that you’ll get with the Brio, but that one is £19.99. The only difference here is that with ECigWizard, you get a 10ml bottle of e-liquid thrown in for good measure.
The kit itself is not a bad little one and if you’re looking for value for money, this is a great one to go for, especially if you happen to spot one while you’re out and about like I did. I did try to find a website for them but I couldn’t, however you can see the product on Amazon here:
The Clipper Brio battery was a good one – it feels good to hold, is reasonably durable and as yet, hasn’t broken. I’m a really clumsy person and I’m always throwing my ecig around, dropping it on the floor, chucking it into the bottom of my handbag, etc. This one has been going strong for a good couple of months now and I’m actually quite impressed by it. The only problem is that I couldn’t find a source to buy spare batteries from but at £15.99, it doesn’t hurt to just buy a brand new starter kit. Some e-cig brands charge more than £15-16 for a brand new battery anyway.
Another great point for the Clipper Brio Review!
I couldn’t find any information on how big the battery capacity was which was quite annoying, but I reckon it’s probably a 650mah one which seems to be the standard now with most ‘starter’ tank batteries. It didn’t last quite as long as some of the others I had tried… I found more like 3-4 hours rather than 5-6 hours as with others such as the Kangertech EVOD from VapesandJuices, or the Vapouriz Fuse – both of which I personally highly recommend!
Cartomisers / Tanks
As I’ve said, I can’t seem to find a website for the Clipper Brio so I tend to just buy a new kit from Amazon rather than replacing various bits and pieces. One thing I will say is that when I did get the burnt taste with this cartomizer, I washed it out and just rinsed the wicks through ever so slightly and when I did, it was almost as good as new again. This is a great tip if you need to ever give your tank e-cigarette a new lease of life while you’re waiting for spare bits and replacements to arrive…. Just try it and you’ll see. Just be careful you don’t get everything too wet. Remember you are mixing electricity and water here and that’s never a great combination!
One thing I feel I should mention is the fact that the threading on the mouthpiece screw of the tank is actually rubber which I found prevented a lot of leakages. As you can see from the picture, most brands have a metal threading and rubber/plastic mouth piece. It’s probably cheaper for he company to use the rubber / plastic screw design, but it sure worked well for me!
Throat Hit & Vapour
I used the Clipper Brio with e-liquid I got from Vapouriz. In fact, that’s one of my favourite places to get my e-liquid from and as you’ll see if you take a peek, they even features on 10 Best Cheap E-Liquids meaning they are great value for money too!
The throat hit I got from the Clipper Brio wasn’t bad. It probably could have done with a bit more… I used the same liquid in a different tank and I found it to be a tad stronger. It’s not a bad smoke though – it does the job quite nicely.
Vapour wasn’t bad at all actually. In fact, that was one of the things I quite liked about it. With smaller puffs, the amount of vapour produced is only a little bit so you can get away with using it discreetly in public, but with deeper, longer inhales, the vapour is quite plentiful so essentially, you’re getting the best of both worlds. It’s rare that you will find an e-cigarette that offers that.
As you can tell from this Clipper Brio Review, I quite liked this ecig and for under £16, it’s a steal.
With a decent amount of vapour, plus a battery that isn’t all that bad for a cheapie, it’s a great starter e-cigarette for anyone looking to dabble in the world of personal vaporisers or tanks. For the more heavy, experienced smoker it’s probably not going to do the job but come on – you’ve gotta try it just so that you can say you’ve tried the Clipper Brio, right? 😉
Bearing everything in mind, I’ve decided to aware the Clipper Brio with 3.5 stars out of 5. It’s a good e-cigarette and I did enjoy using it, but it needed a bit more bang when it came down to throat hit, and not finding a suitable place to purchase replacements was a bit of a pain. All in all though, it’s a very satisfying smoke and one I’m sure you will also enjoy!
