Sparks E-Cigarettes Review 4/5 (5)

Published On July 2, 2014 | By Nicole | Brands

Introduction – Sparks E-Cigarettes Review

Sparks E-cigarettes is a fairly new website based out of the UK that sells a wide variety of different types of vaping supplies, from starter kits, to disposables, to e-liquid, to just about anything else that you could imagine that has to do with vaping. Of course, there are many different E-cig retailers in the UK, but we were excited nonetheless to review Sparks because we had heard quite a bit about them.

Our initial visit to their website revealed quite a wide array of products. It can definitely not be said that Sparks doesn’t carry a lot of merchandise, because they have at least a little bit of everything. We even found things like E-pipes and disposable e-shisha pens, both of which are products that are not carried by that many E-cig retailers.

The Sparks website seemed professional, though there were initially some things about it that we considered a bit ‘tacky’. There are some flashing red price signs, for example, that we could have done without… though it is understandable to have them. Everyone is simply trying to do as much business as possible and to attract as much attention to their products and prices as they can, and Sparks is no exception.

Simply continue reading our Sparks E-Cigarettes review to see what we found out during our overview of their E-cigarette products.

Positives and Negatives

Here is what we found for initial pros and cons of Sparks e-cigarette products.

Pros

  • They offer a wide selection of products, including products that may be difficult to find elsewhere
  • The products seem to be high in quality
  • Prices are very reasonable
  • Their Youtube channel features some great unboxing videos to show you exactly what you are getting when you buy a starter kit
  • They offer a 30 day money back guarantee

Cons

  • We didn’t find a lot of information about the company on their website
  • Website is fairly new, so there isn’t a lot of information out there about their products
  • Surprisingly, they don’t really carry a realistic E-cig mini option

 

What products/accessories can be purchased?

Sparks carries quite a few different products on their website. Here are a few of the different categories that customers have to choose from…

  • Disposable E-cigs
  • Accessories
  • Branded kits
  • Sparks eGo its
  • E-cig refills
  • E-liquid
  • Atomizers
  • Mechanical mods
  • E-pipes
  • Vaping pens
  • PCC box kits
  • And much, much more.

We were truly impressed with the wide range of products offered by Sparks. In fact, we have not reviewed many E-cig websites that have offered this kind of a wide selection of vaping gear, so Kudos to Sparks for setting themselves apart in this fashion.

Package and design

Their paackaging is pretty straightforward. Most of their starter kits come in neat cardboard boxes with removable, tight-fitting lids. Inside, the products are packaged neatly together, as you would expect with any type of electronic device or kit.

Sparks eGo starter kit

As far as the designs go, Sparks offers such a wide variety of different products that you could probably find just about any design that you want. Their vape pens and e-shishas are all very stylish and modern, while the e-pipe sports a classier look. They also offer a more realistic product in their PCC starter kits, though these are also a bit more on the modern side. If there is one thing that Sparks might not have, it is a product that is incredibly realistic, though we didn’t really count this as much of a negative.

Battery performance

We found no reason to complain about the battery life on Sparks’ products. They seemed to be average. Of course, you can expect better battery live out of the larger Vape pens and eGo style E-cigs than you can out of the minis, but that is not unexpected. It should also be noted, however, that Sparks offers some great deals on PCC cases, so battery life for minis might not be such an issue if you choose to go that route.

Vapour production

Again, we found no reason to complain here. Sparks’ products seem to deliver a satisfying vapour plume and throat hit akin to other comparable products. You likely won’t be disappointed in this department, though keep in mind that you are still going to get better results from the larger devices than you will with the minis.

Flavours

Sparks actually surprised us with the number of flavours that they have to offer. Of course, you can expect to find the usual tobacco and menthol flavours, though you will also find a wide selection of specialty flavours. Here are just a few of the options that you will come across while shopping on the Sparks official website…

  • Applesparks e-liquid
  • Blueberry
  • Brandy
  • Caramel
  • Kiwi
  • Maple Syrup
  • Egg nog
  • Vanilla
  • Watermelon
  • And many more.

Nicotine levels

It would seem that most flavours offered by Sparks come in three different nicotine strengths12mg, 18mg, and 24mg.

About the company

Unfortunately, there was not much information to be had about Sparks on their official website. The site itself is owned and hosted by Sparks e-cigarettes LTD, and in the ‘About us’ section of their website they say that they are ‘a new website providing a wide range of e-cigarette products at competitive prices.’

The company headquarters is located at The Old Bakehouse, Course Rd, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7HL, UK. Unfortunately, we couldn’t really find anything else out about their history.
As far as customer support goes, Sparks seems to do a good job of giving customers the ability to get into contact with them. They supply a phone number on their website that can be called if you have a question or an issue, and also maintain an instant-chat service as well during normal business hours. If these methods fail, they also have an e-contact form that you can use.
Sparks offers a few different shipping options. By royal mail, they offer first class shipping for £3.50 and second class shipping for £3.10. Sparks also offers European deliveries, which range in price from £4.50 to £25.00 depending upon how heavy the package ends up being.

Sparks actually offers a pretty good 30 day money back guarantee. They say that if your merchandise is broken or that if you are simply not satisfied with it for any reason within 30 days, then you can return it for a full refund. We were pretty happy to see such a customer-friendly policy. Kudos to Sparks E-cigs for thinking about what is important to customers![/tab

Value for the money

In our opinion, Sparks do offer value for the money. You can buy a basic mini starter kit with a PCC, for example, for only £19.99… which is a pretty incredible price for what you are getting. Their prices are pretty consistently low throughout the site as well, making them a fairly cost effective option. They might not be the cheapest, but they do offer value for the money.

Running costs

A 10ml bottle of e-liquid from Sparks E-cig costs £2.99. For this price, you are getting the equivalent of about 6 packs of analog cigarettes, meaning that you are spending the equivalent of about £0.50 for enough e-liquid to equal a pack of regular cigarettes. This is not only much cheaper than analog cigarettes (when was the last time you bought a pack for under £1.00?), but also much cheaper than the average e-liquid cost as well.

Verdict

In the end, we were pretty happy with what we learned about Sparks. They are a relatively new company, but they definitely seem to be on their way to doing good things in the E-cig industry. Of course, they are not without their negatives and downsides, but they also offer real value for the money and consistently low prices. They have also received some pretty raving reviews on TrustPilot, which only further adds to their legitimacy. TrustPilot is, of course, a third-party review website, so it is always nice to hear unbiased feedback, both good and bad.

Is Sparks a perfect E-cig company? Definitely not. They have a few bad reviews, just like basically every other E-cig company. But are they headed in the right direction? Actually, we believe the answer to that question to be a ‘yes’. We are expecting to see more big things from Sparks in the future.

If you are in the market for a new E-cig and are not sure where to look, then you should definitely consider giving Sparks a try.
