Neatcigs review – Packaging/shipping
All orders are shipped within 2 working days, and your order will arrive 1-2 working days after it is sent. So it takes approximately 2-4 working days to receive your package. In my experience, this is a pretty fast delivery (and most top companies offer the same delivery speed).
Now, onto the packaging – the Switch rechargeable starter kit comes in a basic cigarette carton style box.
This kit includes:
- Battery x1
- Cartridges x3
- USB Charger x1
I found the speed of delivery to be good so there are no issues there, and the packaging is nice and simple. So far, so good.
Neatcigs review – Battery / Responsiveness
With this kit, you will receive 1 battery with a capacity of 190 mAh. According to Neatcigs, this battery will last for around 3 hours of continuous vaping. Personally, I found I got around 2.5 hours constant vaping time, which is actually pretty good. The Neatcigs E-Cig is fairly small (similar to the size of a real cigarette).
It is also lighter than most E-cigs, so it feels really comfortable in your hand. The battery is extremely responsive, and it is activated immediately after a drag. However, keep in mind that “cig-a-like” e-cigarette batteries tend to run out pretty quickly. Not that there is wrong with this brand – it is just that smaller batteries don’t last as long as bigger ones. But on the other hand, smaller ones are lighter and more pleasant to hold.
For this reason, I would recommend buying an extra battery with any mini E-Cig kit. This way, you will always have a fully charged E-Cig. Remember that it takes around 2 hours to charge a battery. Neatcigs’ batteries cost a very reasonable £8.99.
The battery-life is as expected, and the batteries themselves are responsive. However, this kit only comes with one battery, so it is advisable to buy a spare one.
Neatcigs review – Flavour/Vapour
The Switch starter kit comes with three cartridges with 1.8% nicotine. Each of them is in different flavour – menthol, fruit and tobacco. This is great because it means you can test them all, and when you purchase more, you can choose your favourite. Another nice touch is that Neatcigs cartridges come in different colours, meaning you can easily see which flavour is which. There aren’t many brands that actually do this, and it is really helpful.
Neatcigs offer 6 flavours and 2 strengths of nicotine – light (0.6%) and regular (1.8%).
The different flavours offered are:
- Cherry (regular strength only)
All flavours except cherry are available in both light and regular strengths.
As I stated, the starter kit comes with tobacco, menthol and fruit flavours. The tobacco tastes incredibly realistic, the throat hit is decent and the volume of vapour produced is quite good. The menthol flavour was really fresh – you get a nice, cool mint aftertaste. Of course, bear in mind that individual flavours come down very much to personal preference!
Neatcigs state that 1 cartridge approximates to 40 cigarettes – this means three cartridges should be the equivalent of ~120 tobacco cigs.
I should point out that this is where it always gets a little tricky, because it depends on various factors – how often you vape, how “deep” you inhale, and so on. For me, Neatcigs cartridges lasted quite a long time, and I would say the carts are all in order.
A pack of 5 cartridges costs £6.99 or £9.99, depending on which flavours you choose. The prices are ok, and many other E-Cig brands offer cartridges for a similar price.
Another noteworthy benefit of Neatcigs is that they manufacture their cartridges and e-liquid here in the UK, which is why Neatcigs cartridges taste so crisp and authentic.
Neatcigs review – Overall
The flavours are fresh and realistic and I really enjoyed them. It is fantastic that they have 6 different flavours on offer, so you can experiment with different ones. Another big bonus, as I stated, is that their cartridges and e-liquids are made right here in the United Kingdom.

Neatcigs review – Customer Service
As we are all aware, customer service is one of the most important aspects when it comes to building a long-term business relationship. This is an area Neatcigs excel – they have great customer service, and you can contact them via email or phone. They also have a Live Chat option available on their site.
Neatcigs review – Returns / Warranty
A 30 day money back guarantee is offered for both starter kits, and Neatcigs also offer a lifetime warranty. However, to ensure your product is covered, you will need to buy cartridge refills at least once every 120 days. For more information about returns and warranty, please check their website.
Neatcigs review – Overall
In my opinion, Neatcigs’ SWITCH kit is aimed at brand new vapers, who are looking for a cig-a-like product. It is extremely simple to use this kit – even complete beginners will have no problems.
The E-Cig itself is good quality and its performance is top class. The battery responds well and lasts fairly long. The flavour is authentic and fresh, while the throat hit is decent too. As I have mentioned a couple of times, Neatcigs use cartridges and e-liquid made in the UK, and many readers might appreciate the thought of supporting local manufacturers.
The kit costs £19.99, but by using our exclusive 15% discount, the price drops to £16.99 + postage. So in total, the kit plus delivery fees comes to around £20.00, making it a pretty good deal, in my opinion. For £16.99 you can get everything you need to start a healthier life. It is also a great choice if you are looking to try an E-Cig for the first time – I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. This starter kit is also a good place to begin if your budget is limited.
