Review Summary: The CUE 2.0 Kit is a simple slab of satisfaction. With no maintenance beyond acquiring new pods, it’s a great choice for vapers who prefer convenience and simplicity.

Review Disclosure: Cue Vapour, confident about their new kit and keen to get the word out, has supplied us with a CUE 2.0 Kit and some pods to try. Despite this, I’ll be reviewing the device honestly and making note of any features I think are worth mentioning, both positive and negative.

Packaging and Labels

The kit comes in a sleeved cardboard box, with a TPD-compliant nicotine health warning displayed clearly on the front. The sides are featureless, while the back of the box features a contents list (kit, cable, and user manual), a child-safety warning, and a manufacturing date and production batch number.

Sliding off the sleeve reveals a similar-looking cardboard box with a fold-out hatch. Opening it reveals the kit itself held tightly within a form partition, with the USB-C charging cable held beneath the kit.

The box I’ve been sent does not feature pods, but Cue Vapour sent me pods in separate boxes.

Build Quality

Score: 5/5

The CUE 2.0 Kit is remarkably sturdy when gripped. Measuring 101.5mm x 35mm x 16mm, it’s small and compact enough to fit comfortably in both the palm and pocket. The build has a hefty weight, which hints at good-quality manufacturing.

The kit’s weight led me to expect a higher battery capacity, but 850mAh is usually enough to get most MTL vapers through a working day, and Cue’s website states that you can charge it to full from empty in just 45 minutes.

While Cue makes no mention of it, I found that the device features passthrough technology and can be vaped from while being charged, making it a fantastic desktop device.

Ease of Use

Score: 4/5

The CUE 2.0 Kit is always on when it’s charged, requiring no button taps to activate the device, which is good because the kit is buttonless! I find the device holds charge well when it’s not being used; my kit was fully charged when I went to sleep and fully charged when I woke up.

Being buttonless, the kit is draw-activated, meaning you simply start puff to receive vapour. It has a fast ignition speed, so the first inhale isn’t wasted, which is often the case with draw-activated kits.

The pod insertion method is a little unorthodox, but it’s very easy to learn and keeps the pod held securely in place with far less likelihood of e-liquid leaks. Refilling was also very simple, with the pod lids snapping off easily but never unintentionally.


Score: 4/5

The CUE 2.0 Kit has a very fast draw when puffed from, and that’s good because, as a buttonless device, there aren’t any other ways to get it firing.

There’s no airflow control slider, which is slightly disappointing. However, the draw tightness is very moderate when using a 50/50 e-liquid—not too restrictive, not too airy, just right.

Cue Vapour informed us that although all the pods for the kit feature pre-installed 0.8ohm coils, they would be able to handle sub-ohm vape liquids just as well as MTL juices. 

I filled a pod with some 70VG e-liquid to try for myself. I found that the kit did indeed fire without incident, and I received vapour without having to draw any harder than usual.

However, the high VG e-liquid I used had a very, very diminished flavour compared to when I used it from a dedicated DLT vape kit, so while clouds are certainly possible, you may find the flavour is sacrificed.

Battery Life

Score: 3 / 5

The CUE 2.0 Kit has a battery capacity of 850mAh, not the largest in the pod vape game but easily enough to get you through a solid day of MTL vaping. I can’t find information relating to what the device’s output wattage is, but being an MTL device it’s likely somewhere between 9W – 13W.

This low output stress means the 850mAh battery won’t be drained too quickly. The decision to eschew a display screen in favour of a simple 3-LED power indicator also prevents battery waste.

Flavour Output 

Score: 4/5
I was surprised by the flavour I got from the CUE 2.0 Kit. The technical information on their website mentions vertical mesh coils being used, which would definitely result in a purer and more direct delivery of flavour. I can’t find any information about the materials used for the coil wicks, but whatever they used conveys a rich flavour with zero impurities to taste.


Score: 5/5

The device requires little maintenance. Refilling is easy, thanks to the pods’ snap-on, snap-off design. Disposable pods with pre-installed coils mean you don’t need to bother with messy, awkward coil changes, either.

Pods are inserted in a rather interesting way, requiring them to be inserted diagonally and then clicked into place. This novel design seeks to prevent e-liquids from ever escaping through the mouthpiece, and while it may seem unfamiliar, it’s still an intuitive design.


I found the CUE 2.0 Kit very satisfying to use! I’m actually a bit surprised by how much I’ve enjoyed using the CUE 2.0 Kit. Admittedly, it’s a simplistic piece of hardware, but in many ways, that’s a feature rather than a bug. It provides a no-fuss MTL vaping experience with a comforting weight when held.

There aren’t any special features, functions, or even airflow settings to play with, but if you’re looking for a no-brainer cigarette-replacement vape, then you’ll definitely find the CUE 2.0 Kit meets all your requirements.

The MIST Favourite Feature: 

I found the taste exceptionally clear, no doubt thanks to the vertical mesh coils pre-installed in the pods with top-grade wicks that impart no impurities upon the flavour of my favourite e-liquids.
