Starfire Cigs look different than most of the other e-cigs on the market. They stand out from a lot of the other products. The changes they have made will probably make them a more appealing choice for people who are just now trying e-cigs.
The prices for Starfire Cigs are very competitive with other products. But is there enough of a positive difference for you to select them or switch to them? Find out in our review.
What makes Starfire Cigs different from the rest?
In a marketplace where most e-cig companies offer you an endless variety of choices in e-cig color and flavors, Starfire stands apart. Rather than offering numerous different types of starter kits, which can add to consumer confusion, Starfire allows you to make easier choices without feeling like you have to study first.
Starfire Cigs has one basic e-cig kit. It comes in two colors – black and white. The kit includes the e-cig, five refill cartridges, wall and USB chargers, two batteries and a portable case for battery charging. Their five-pack refill cartridges are $10 each and if you have them auto-shipped, they will ship free of charge.
What makes the Starfire Cigs refills different?
The refills for Starfire Cigs are made in the USA. Their nicotine fluid has a base of vegetable glycerin. This is a plus for people allergic to the normal e-liquid base, which is propylene glycol. You can usually find e-liquids that don’t contain propylene glycol, but it’s hard to find pre-filled cartridges that don’t have this as a base. Their refills also work well for people who don’t want to fill their own cartridges.
What else makes Starfire Cigs different?
In a market where reputation matters, Starfire Cigs has gone the extra step to receive Better Business Bureau accreditation. A lot of older e-cig companies are not accredited by the BBB. The current rating for Starfire Cigs is A-. This is due in large part to their liberal return policy. You can return your kit for a full refund within the first 30 days if you’re not pleased. In addition, all the products have a one year warranty against any defects in workmanship.
What are the basics of Starfire Cigs?
The battery in this e-cig is an L88. The e-cig itself is small, but when you connect the refill cartridge, it’s then the same size as regular cigarettes. But Starfire Cigs also includes a “jewel tip” on the batteries, which makes the battery glow, crystal-like, when you use the e-cig. This is an attention-getter.
Some companies don’t have reasonably priced starter kits that include portable battery chargers. The L88 battery is small, which is a point in its favor. But the battery life does not stack up to that of many other e-cigs. Two batteries that have been fully charged will provide you with vaping that lasts about the same as a pack of real cigs. But if you smoke frequently or for longer time periods, the battery life diminishes.
Starfire Cigs has the portable charging case with an internal battery. This can charge a dead e-cig a few times. In this way, you can use one while you charge the other. This allows you more freedom to use these e-cigs on the go.
What kind of liquids does Starfire Cigs use?
Many e-cig companies sell cartridges made in China. There isn’t really anything wrong with that, as far as performance, since they originated the e-cig. But you may find that liquids made in the USA have a better taste to them, and can produce more vapor with fewer chemicals.
You can purchase Starfire Cigs cartridges in many flavors, including tobacco, menthol, peach, watermelon, apple, coffee, cherry and vanilla. A Turkish tobacco blend is coming soon. The cartridges offer good taste and lots of vapor. They are also lower in price than many other competitors.
Can you get auto-shipments with Starfire Cigs?
Starfire Cigs has an auto ship option that will save you money on your refills. Some companies have products that are more expensive when you add the shipping costs. The auto ship option from Starfire Cigs gives you free shipping on their e-cig cartridges.
What did we like best about Starfire Cigs?
We were happy with the satisfaction guarantee and the warranty. The prices are low, and we like the liquids being made in the USA. The inclusion of portable battery charging cases is handy, and we like that the base for the liquids is not propylene glycol, so that people with allergies can vape without worry.
What didn’t we like about Starfire Cigs?
Our only negative comment is the lower battery life than that offered by other companies.

Starfire Cigs are truly in a class of their own. As a consumer who has tried multiple variations of the e-cigarette concept Starfire Cigs stands above the rest. This is due to a few reasons, for one the construction is just phenomenal. It just feels sturdy in your hand, the materials are top-notch and overall the construction is very solid. I only wish they had more flavors!
And Our Conclusion Is … !
We think Starfire Cigs are a good deal for the money, and the company is very good about taking their products back if you don’t enjoy using them. They are certainly worth a try.
