PACKAGING & DESIGN
I like the design and look of this vape pen. It has a similar design to the Blu PRO kit, but performs so much better with long-term use from my experience.
The HD3 is an all black ecig. The packaging also has a sleek black and red design giving the kit a put together and stylish feel.

The vapour production on this device is pretty standard for mouth-to-lung style vape pens.
Having tested this product first-hand, I can say that the vapour production is not as strong as high wattage batteries with sub ohm tanks, which is to be expected.
If you are looking for a device with a vapour output that is more similar to an actual cigarette, you will find that this kit is a good match.
The Phantom HD3 is simple to use.
The battery turns off and on with a simple five clicks of the fire button. The tank is a bottom fill model, and while the drip tip is non-removable I found it to be very comfortable in my mouth.
When you unscrew the base of the tank, you can see the coil head unit that easily screws out of the base. The coil head will need to be changed out every few weeks to provide best hit and flavour.
Additional care should be taken when first filling the tank, or when replacing the coil to ensure that the wicking material in the coil is fully saturated before hitting the ecig to avoid burning the coil.
The easiest way to saturate the wick is to allow the tank to sit for a few moments (around 5 minutes should be okay) after first filling. You can easily fill the tank by dripping the enclosed liquid down the side of the tank, avoiding the centre tube. Stop filling just short of the centre tube, and manually screw the base back on to the unit.
After allowing your wick to soak, you can attach the tank to the battery by screwing the tank on to the top of the battery. You are now ready to take a puff! Simply inhale while pressing the fire button.
You can charge the battery easily by plugging the included micro USB into the bottom of the battery. There are no adjustments to be made, no fiddling with wattage, voltage, or temperature settings.
The airflow consists of two simple holes drilled into the base of the unit. Part of the beauty of this device is in its simplicity and replication of an actual cigarette.
The liquamiser tank has a 1.6ml liquid capacity. It comes in black and is coated in a protective rubberised coating.
The tank is a bottom fill unit and uses replaceable coil heads which will need to be changed out intermittently.
The drip tip is a clear plastic that is not removable. The unit also comes with a silicon drip tip cover that you may also choose to vape through.
I found that the 1100mAh battery lasted all day with frequent use. So this kit is good for vapers and ex-smokers who will need to use the device throughout the day.
Like the tank, the battery is black with a silky, smooth rubberised coating. The battery has pass-through capability, meaning that the unit can be vaped while it is charging.
Charging is simple with the micro USB, but the short cord means that you can’t be too distant from the power source in order to do so. Also, bottom charging means the unit can not stand up while it is charging, it must lay on its side.
There are many things I like about the HD3 Vapouriser, including its budget friendly price, pass through charging, (pick up an extra long micro USB cable for best use of this feature), and easy re-filling.
During the month that I used the device, I had no problems with leaking. The 1100mAh battery is of good quality with sufficient battery life, but I’d still recommend having a back-up battery, and I always recommend this for any e-cig.
This is a subjective con, but I find the vapour production to be very average when compared to some other similar vape pens I’ve used – but it is similar to that of an actual cigarette, which may be satisfactory for you.
The short charging cable almost guarantees that you will have to trade out for a longer one. These can be found pretty cheap on eBay or Amazon.
PRICE & SHIPPING CHARGES
Okay, so at £19.95 is this kit worth it? Absolutely. Not only are you getting a quality vape pen with a good battery but they even throw in some free e-liquid to get you going. It really is an absolute bargain.
As far as shipping goes, you’ll have to pay an extra £3.49 for first class shipping, which still makes this kit worth every penny. But it’s worth keeping in mind that you’ll be eligable for free shipping if you spend over £25.00.
You could always get some more e-liquid, a replaceable atomiser or both since you’ll eventually need these anyway and you’ll more than qualify for free shipping if you’re in the UK.
WARRANTY & GUARANTEE
I’m all for companies that have the confidence to stand behind their product with a money back guarantee, which you’ll get with ePuffer.
You’ll also be covered by their one-year limited warranty. The atomizers and liquamizers are covered for 30 days, all batteries are covered for 60 days, and the USB and any Personal Charging Cases are covered for a full year.

SHOULD YOU GET THE HD3?
This kit is perfect for beginners, first timers, travellers, and I’d highly recommend it if you’re trying to quit smoking. The simple, stylish electronic cigarette comes with everything you need to start vaping today – including juice!
The battery life, ease of use, and style of this device make the HD3 a good place to start if you’ve never vaped before. If you’re already a vape pen user looking for an upgrade at a good price then you really can’t go wrong here.
