The EPuffer Magnum – A Good Cig-a-like option?
ePuffer has been in business since 2007.
Since that time, they’ve become one of the world-leaders in the E-cig market. They have offices based in Canada, Europe, and the USA, and carry products ranging from
E-cig minis, to vape pens, to E-pipes.
This review, however, will be focused on one of their most popular E-cig mini kits… the ePuffer Magnum Snaps Starter Kit.
Packaging and presentation
This starter kit comes with 1 portable charging case, 2 rechargeable batteries (one with a blue tip and one with a red tip), 3 E-liquid cartridges (all tobacco flavoured), 1 Micro USB charger, 1 car charger, and 1 mains adapter.
For an E-cig mini kit, the Magnum Snaps Starter Kit is especially thorough. You’ll literally get everything you need to get started vaping in this kit.

Design and Build Quality
As far as the physical design is concerned, they have a smooth black finish, and the fact that the atomizers ‘snap’ into place instead of screw onto the battery is really cool.
Altogether, when the cartridge and the battery are connected, the entire length of the device is about 3.7 inches.
The Magnum Snaps Portable Charging Case
The portable charging case (or PCC) is a case that you can use to carry your E-cigs around with you. It looks similar to a cigarette box, but it actually contains a battery and will charge your batteries while you carry them – which is awesome!
Since these smaller batteries don’t last a terribly long time, this is a must-have for serious vapers – and thankfully, ePuffer has done a great job with it.
The battery in the unit is a 540mAh battery that, when fully charged, has the ability to completely charge an e-cig mini battery up to 4 times – which should be sufficient to see you through the majority of a day.
It has a rubberized finish and a slim design that fits easily into your pocket, and has a nice lid that ‘snaps’ closed.
Here are some of the features that the Magnum Snaps charging case offers its users…
- Charge level indicator lets you know how much power you have left LED indicators on the batteries will go out when they’re fully charged – letting you know when you can remove and use them
- The PCC has a flashlight installed in the base
- The MICRO USB charge slot is installed conveniently at the base of the device
Flavour and vapour
In all honestly, these products seem to work very well. The included E-liquid cartridges deliver about 6mg of nicotine, and produce a decent throat hit.
If you’re looking for something realistic, then these will probably taste good to you.
One great thing about ePuffer, though, is that they offer some specialty flavours as well – which is surprisingly rare for companies that deal primarily with E-cig minis.
It’s far easier to sell bottles of E-liquid in a wide variety of flavours than cartridges, so kudos to ePuffer for giving us some specialty options to use with the Snaps.
As far as the volume of vapour is concerned, I was pretty happy with it. Minis don’t tend to give off a ton of vapour – but if you’re looking for something realistic that will give you an experience somewhere similar to that of a real cigarette, then you’ll probably be happy with the results.
With moderate to heavy vaping, you can expect the cartridges to last somewhere around 1 to 1.5 days.
5 replacement cartridges will cost you £7.95, so you can see right away how much cheaper these are than regular cigarettes.
Another really awesome thing that ePuffer offers is a pack of blank cartridges. If you buy these, you can refill your own cartridges with your own E-liquid – which is awesome and cuts down on the cost of running the kit yet further.
Epuffer allow you to try the product for 30 days. If you’re not happy with it for any reason you can return for a refund making this pretty much risk free to try.
They also have a 1 year limited warranty on all of their products. Check out their latest T&C’s to see what’s included.
Can be contacted by phone, email or live chat on their website.

If you’re looking for a high-quality E-cig kit and don’t want to mess with something large and complicated, then the ePuffer Magnum Snaps Starter Kit might be a perfect option for you.
They work well, give you decent vapour, have a great flavour, and are reasonably priced.
They’re also great as a first-step into vaping for those just transitioning from tobacco use.
If you want something super simple, reliable, easy to use, and inexpensive, then this might be the perfect kit to take a look at.
It’s not going to appeal to vapers who are into cloud chasing or devices that have a
lot of settings – but for minimalist vapers who just want something that works well and gets the job done, the Magnum Snaps Starter Kit is a great bit of kit.
