Funky Republic FI3000 Review
The Funky Republic FI3000 arrives pre-filled and pre-charged. It offers what most adult vapers seek: an easy to use vape with great flavor and satisfaction. This practicality has made disposable vapes incredibly popular with adult vapers.
The Funky Republic FI3000 is a compact design that does not require recharging. There is no easier way to vape and it is ready to roll out of the box. The reliable 800mAh battery supplies enough charge to vape all 5ml of juice (approximately 3000 puffs). It is a classic disposable vape design, a convenient change of pace from the myriad long-lasting disposables that require recharging and can last for days.
If you are looking for something with more longevity, there is also the Funky Republic Ti7000 Disposable Vape by the same manufacturer. The Funky Republic Ti7000 collection has a slightly different assortment of flavors, but being a disposable vape they do not stray far from the fruit and menthol infused greatest hits.
The auto-draw mechanism provides a smooth and robust hit. The smaller size encourages more experimentation with flavor options. If you order a Lost Mary and the flavor is not for you, you are stuck with it for a week. The Funky Republic is designed to last a few days.
Vaping the Funky Republic FI3000
The Funky Republic FI3000 has a quality feel and sports a SPCC metallic side cover (cold-rolled carbon steel) for durability. The most important attribute is the QUOQ Mesh Coil.
This sophisticated coil is optimized for salt nic juice and provides a superior puff in a little package.
Referred to as “The New Classic Line”, this is a reliable and modern disposable vape with the convenience and flexibility of the first generation of salt nic juice disposables. It is also available in many of the great flavors that have dominated salt nic juice and disposable vape sales from the get go. This means a lot of fruit confection inspired choices, plenty of tropical fruit options, and healthy selection of menthol ice infused flavors.

Funky Republic FI3000 Features
- The 800mAh battery should be more than sufficient to extract every last puff from the 5ml e-liquid reservoir and polyfill.
- Like most disposable vapes there is no airflow control, but the draw has been calibrated to optimize flavor and battery life.
- The tapered mouthpiece and compact shape can deliver precise mouth to lung vaping pulls.
- The draw-activated heating element provides vapor as soon as you start puffing. It is engineered to resist hot boxing and hard pulls in order to extend coil, and battery life.
- The QUOQ coil provides 500% better consistency of flavors from the first hit to the last. Engineered for MTL vaping, the notes of flavor are crystal clear. The drop-off in flavor quality when the battery runs low is not severe.
- The compact size allows for discrete vaping without worrying about the battery needing a recharge.
- There is an activation light. But like so many of these lights, including those found on refillable pod kits, it cannot be viewed as you vape.
Funky Republic FI3000 Flavors
Disposable vape makers have been ratcheting up flavor intensity and puff counts higher. If you are looking to take a step back from this arms race, the Funky Republic Fi3000 is a great choice. The classic flavors are not overly sweet and the device itself does not require refilling. This is a zero hassle vape with all design elements that a vaper on the go requires.
The apples and watermelon flavors deliver fruit notes with a medium amount of menthol ice on exhale in the Apple Watermelon Funky Republic FI3000 Disposable.
The Berry Chill Funky Republic FI3000 features a mixed berry flavor loaded with menthol ice. The medley of fruit notes has a diversity of flavors and the coolness is amped on exhale.
With a bit less menthol ice than Berry Chill, there are also rich fruit notes almost reminiscent of grape embedded in the sweet and chilly disposable vape known as the Berry Storm Funky Republic FI3000.
Blue Mint Rose
Rose water is currently a popular addition to salt nic juice flavors. It is an aromatic addition, akin to rose hips or rose water. The blueberry and mint notes provide enough counterbalance to keep Blue Mint Rose by Funky Republic from getting too perfumed.
Blue Razz Ice
The classic salt nic juice flavor and one of the true disposable vape heavyweights. No collection is complete without blue razz. Typically, the bold confectionary flavor of blue raspberry is paired with an icy menthol, which serves to smooth over the boisterous sweetness. The tart blueberry style notes also add depth to widely lauded and loved flavor which is perfectly executed in the Blue Razz Ice by Funky Republic.
Another disposable vape and salt nic juice classic, the Malayasian Mango Funky Republic FI3000 Disposable uses a well-executed tropical fruit flavor that has been carefully calibrated for all-day vaping. It is not overwhelmingly sweet, much like some of the classic mango salt nics of yore and has deep pockets of almost tart flavor nestled in an mango base.
Miami Mint in the Funky Republic FI3000 Disposable Vape provides crisp, robust spearmint flavors with low iciness. It tastes pretty similar to spearmint gum, at least one that is not overly chewed, and is a low ice mint. There is a enough coolness so as to not tire out the taste buds.
If Miami Mint reminds you of spearmint, then the Mountain Ice Funky Republic FI3000 Disposable is the winterfresh counterpart in bright blue packaging. It is an extremely cold vape flavor, with icy sharpness that cleanses the palate while delivering a satisfying vaping experience.
Funky Republic stuck with the classics here. The peach flavor is not overly strong or nectary, some lean towards being almost perfumed. Although if you are looking for that style of hard hitting peach confection flavor, rather than more authentic fruit notes, you may find this cool fruit flavor a bit relaxed. The Peach Ice Funky Republic FI3000 is an anchor of the lineup.
Pineapple Passion Lemon
Pineapple Passion Lemon Funky Republic FI3000 is a tropical fruit flavor with passion fruit notes and tart lemon cutting through the sweetness of the pineapple base. Funky Republic took a balanced approach to pineapple. The bold cloying flavors, which almost taste like a concentrated beverage or confection in some disposables, are subdued.
Strawberry Peach Sakura
An equal blend of strawberry and peach is the foundation of this flavor and Sakura Grape is the finishing touch. Unlike the traditional “purple” grape, Sakura adds a unique twist of flavor without dominating proceedings in the Strawberry Peach Sakura Funky Republic FI3000 Disposable.
Triple Berry Ice
Triple Berry Ice has a balanced mix of berry flavors. It is distinct from Berry Storm and Berry Chill because the berry notes are bit closer to fruit than confection. This creates a mild flavor that is well-paired with an icy finish. Triple Berry Ice Funky Republic FI3000 might be the most balanced of their mixed berry trifecta.
The Tropical Delight Funky Republic Fi3000 has an all-star cast of tropical flavors, fused into a single cohesive flavor. Familiar notes like pineapple orange, guava, mango and others interact with mild flavor levels.
The Watermelon Delight Funky Republic FI3000 Disposable Vape has a medium level of menthol on inhale and on exhale boasts a rich melony watermelon finish. There are deep fruit notes, as this is not just hard shelled watermelon confection flavor.
A classic Lush Ice alternative, the sweet and airy watermelon flavor is augmented with a cooling kick of menthol ice. A great flavor option, there is a reason why basically every salt nic juice and disposable manufacturer ever offers some version of this flavor. The Watermelon Ice Funky Republic FI3000 Disposable vape delivers as advertised with flavor.
If you are looking for the longest lasting disposable possible, the Funky Republic FI3000 is probably not the best fit. It is practical and certainly not as short lived as the first generation of disposables, but it has a couple times less e-liquid capacity than both rivals and its stablemate the Funky Republic Ti7000.
With the exception of the Blue Mint Rose, the flavors are close to the stock standard salt nic juices found in every disposable vape. But they are well-executed and familiar, making this device a great choice for vapers on the go.
