Initial Thoughts & Looks

So when I opened the box the first thing to greet me was the colour, I think it’s supposed to be purple but it’s more of a magenta/pink kind of colour. I like it, it’s feminine and fun!

I’ve always loved Pico’s, I’ve got through 3 of the standard pico’s (I kind of worked them to death!)
And I’ve always loved cute, small little novelty type mods, so this ticks both of those boxes. The thing is though small and cute mods don’t really cut it for me anymore, I’m more used to larger devices now. But… I’ll give small and cute a go  :thumbup: Continue reading “Eleaf iStick Pico Baby Review – ‘Stealth Anyone?’”

Eleaf iJust 3 – Could This Be ‘Just’ What You Need?

 

 

Wotcha folks, staying in the starter kit category in this review with the iJust 3 that the lovely folks at Eleaf sent out for me to test, thank you to Holy for arranging this. I had one of the old iJust 2’s when they came out, and this was at a time when I wasn’t over keen on direct lung inhaling, now I’m a fully fledged cloud blower so I have really put this kit through its paces.

How it Looks & Initial Thoughts on the iJust 3

I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and was greeted by this lovely purple patterned mod. I’m a sucker for lovely colours and good looking vape kits and this did indeed catch my eye and make me feel all happy and warm inside! But as we all know it’s not just about looking good, it actually has to work well too! Continue reading “Eleaf iJust 3 – Could This Be ‘Just’ What You Need?”

The Uwell Nunchaku Review

So Ceekays vape shack has teamed up again with Vaporl for the month of April, and the lovely folks there sent me out the Uwell Nunchacku for me to feast my beady eyes upon, and what a treat it is! Had to look up Nunchaku in the dictionary… knew I’d heard it before (I was maybe thinking of nunchuck on the Wii  :roll: a Japanese martial arts weapon consisting of two hardwood sticks joined together by a chain, rope, or thong. Hmm there you go!   :yes:

Lets start with the Nunchaku specs

Tank Capacity: 5ml
Mod Size: 27.4mm(d) x 94.5mm(h)
Material:stainless steel & quartz glass & copper &silicone
Power Range: 5-80W
Working Modes: Power Mode, TC Mode(Ni, SS), Bypass Mode
Battery Type: 1 x 18650
Standby Current: <50μA
Voltage Range: 0.7V-7.0V
Resistance Range: 0.1Ω-3Ω(VW), 0.1Ω-1Ω(TC), 0.1Ω-0.5Ω(Bypass)
Temperature Range: 200°F-600°F/100°C-300°C
A new generation of E-cigarette control panel by our independent R&D, makes the tube as safe as a box mod.
Replacement 18650 battery or charge over usb
Plug-pull coils, easy to replace.

In the box

1 x Nunchaku Mod
1 x Nunchaku Atomizer
1 x Extra Quartz Glass
1 x 0.25Ω Coil(pre-installed)
1 x 0.4Ω Coil
1 x Pack of Replacement O-rings
1 x Micro USB Cable
1 x User Manual
1 x Drip Tip Cover(used to cover the drip tip while not using)

So when I opened the box I was thoroughly impressed with the way the Nunchaku was packed. The tank and battery section were in separate slots and both were wrapped in extremely soft plastic (maybe not plastic) bags… I could see the colour through the bags and this caught my attention straight the way…. Blue! One of my favouite colours. Now as you all now, I’m a bit shallow in the fact that I do like mods to look nice, and I’m not overkeen on the colour black for mods (boring!) so I couldn’t wait to get this baby unwrapped…. so skip forward a couple of minutes, and I may have looked a little like this :love2: Continue reading “The Uwell Nunchaku Review”

Aspire SkyStar – Could This Be The Star in Aspires Line Up?

After reviewing the Aspire Speeder a while ago (and hating it) I promised myself that I would never touch another Aspire product in my life. However when the Skystar came out, I kind of went against my own rules! (I’m a woman! We’re allowed to do that!) I loved the look of the mod, and thought I would give Aspire a second chance  :yes:

So I ordered that SkyStar Revvo kit. The Revvo is already reviewed and you can see that here, but these are my thoughts on the SkyStar mod.

Bearing in mind that I purchased this as a kit, these are the specs:

Aspire SkyStar Mod Specs

210W Maximum output Power
1.3 inch Touch Screen
Spring Loaded 510 Connection
Two 18650 Batteries (Not Included)
Micro USB Port for Charging/Firmware updates

In The Box:

1x Aspire SkyStar 210w Mod
1x Aspire Revvo Tank
1x Protective Silicone Cap
1x Micro USB Charge Cable
2x Revvo Tank Coils
1x Replacement Glass
1x User Manual
1x Warranty Card

Initial Thoughts

When I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised, the SkyStar doesn’t look half bad. In it’s pics it reminded me of a shiny pebble, like one of those chalk rocks you find on the beach that has been smoothed all over by rolling around in the sea! I got the white one, which is maybe why I have that image in mind. It’s also available in some other different colours and finishes, including woodgrain! (hate that one!  :roll:)

Picking it up out of the box, and I was surprised, the SkyStar is lightweight… very lightweight. No idea why, but I tend to put light mods like this instantly in the cheap pile! The second thing that made it feel cheap, it feels plasticky! These back and front panels are just cheap plastic… ughh not a good start Aspire  :no2: and I so wanted you to redeem yourself with this mod. The chrome parts are metal, which is good, after the panels I was expecting them to be plastic covered in some kind of metallic paint, but I guess Aspire didn’t totally cheap it out!

The Vaptio Super Bat Kit – Hero or Villain?

In The Box

Vaptio Super Bat Mod
Vaptio Frogman Tank (kit version only)
USB Cable
User manual

First impressions

When I opened the box, I was quite surprised at how shiny the Super Bat mod actually is. I have the red and silver version, the red is a matte finish, with the silver being glossy and smooth. It looks really great, a real fun looking mod. It has Batman shaped head on the front with light up eyes! (and we all know how much I like LED’s  :yes:) I love the look this, it’s a bit of fun and makes the mod look really great. The two side panels are silver, one is a full panel button, like you get on some of the smok mods.

 

The back of the mod has what I can only assume is the back of Batman‘s head  :dunno: and maybe his wings? This incorporates six LEDs that you can set to flash, pulse, solid colour, there seem to be plenty of options. Or if you don’t like your mod looking like Blackpool illuminations you can switch the LEDs off completely   :wink2:

The mod is quite heavy even without a couple of batteries installed, but it does have a real good quality feel to it.

Vaptio Solo Flat – Review

 

So a huge thanks to Vaptio for sending out the latest couple of kits. The Solo Flat pod device, and The Super Bat Kit (which I shall hopefully be reviewing next week) So for now lets take a look at the…

Solo Flat specs. 

Size: 128×20.3×13.8mm
Battery capacity: 650mAh internal battery
Output power: 15W
Coil resistance: 1ohm
Capacity: 1.5ml
Less than 2 hours to charge
LED Indicator
Top fill
Automatic fire

In The Box

Vaptio Solo-Flat Pod Mod
Solo-Flat drip tip
2x Solo-Flat pod
User manual
USB Cable

 

Initial Thoughts

So the Solo Flat is another pod style starter device, and by pod style I mean the atomiser is actually built in to the tank. So you relplace that whole section, not just the atomizer. Its sleek looking, tapered at the mouthpiece, and this mouthpiece is actually very comfy and natural feeling  :yes:

There is a tank level window on the side, so you can see how much liquid you have left, or that’s what should happen in theory. I use clear liquid and to be honest have to squint and even shine a light on the window to see anything at all. Continue reading “Vaptio Solo Flat – Review”

ELFC Original Recipe Flavour Shots – Bohemian Raspberry Updated

Hey folks! So I just wanted to update my thoughts on this Bohemian Raspberry flavour from ELFC Original concentrates. I originally used it at around 2 to 3 weeks steeped. And I decided to leave it for a about another 3 weeks and see if that pastry flavour had come through.

You can see my original review here

So it’s been a few more weeks, and to be honest the flavour hasn’t really changed much at all, maybe a little richer, but I’m still looking for that pastry taste, it never did appear  🙁

It is however still a flavour that I am enjoying immensley. A true Raspberry taste and a little cream on the side. This is  a flavour that won’t be retired to the shelf (or end up in the bin, its nearly all gone now!) I will definitely be buying more of Bohemian Raspberry.

Ceekays Shack Score – After Final Steeping

So that Pastry failed to make an appearance in the final days, but it’s still a fantastic e-liquid for anyone who likes authentic fruit flavours. So Bohemian Raspberry keeps its original 4.5/5  thumbs

 

Aspire Revvo Tank – Is It Revvo-lutionary? (Find out in the review!)

The Aspire Revvo tank came as part of a kit that I purchased the with Aspire Skystar mod, and I will get round to reviewing the mod in the future. For now though I just wanted to tell you guys my thoughts on the Revvo tank.

Aspire Revvo Tank Specs

41mm Height
24mm Width
2ml Capacity
Adjustable Top Airflow
510 Threading
New ARC Coil Technology
Top Filling System

Looks & Initial thoughts

It looks a little on the strange side, not a particularly good looking tank, but not down right ugly either. I’m not a lover of the colour black on mods or tanks, and this comes in 5 colours… all with black! So this for me is a negative to start. I guess it kind of matches the black screen and button on the skystar, but thats about it  :dunno:

The glass is tiny! But of course it’s not Aspires fault that when purchasing in the UK we are limited to 2ml tanks. The top section, air flow ring and mouthpiece can all be removed as one section, or the mouthpiece will also unscrew to make it two parts. And I keep saying mouthpiece because that’s what it is. It’s not a drip tip, its a whole mouthpiece section which screws onto the airflow collar, due to this you cannot use your own drip tips, which is a shame  :roll: The mouthpiece is slightly tapered towards the top, and it is fairly comfy to use. The air flow ring has three rather large airflow holes, and these can be closed down to give quite a restricted draw. Continue reading “Aspire Revvo Tank – Is It Revvo-lutionary?

Tony B. & Vandy Vape ‘VS’ Voopoo!

So I know loads of people that have been looking forward to getting their sticky mitts on the new Vandy Vape Pulse 80w squonk mod (hell even I was excited about this thing!)

I never had the original Vandy Vape Pulse squonk mod as it wasn’t a regulated mod, and I do prefer regulated for squonking, I like to get my power just right, and not have to rely on a fully charged battery, or build a coil to suit the battery power, so yeah I was looking forward to this coming out.

Not only was it a regulated squonk mod, the Pulse 80w was going to incorporate the Gene chip. Now the Gene chip is fab! In fact in my humble opinion it was the only good thing about the Voopoo drag (and you can see my thoughts on the Drag here)

So one of my members last night popped up a video from Tony B, on the Vapor Trail Channel, and I watched that this morning, and have to say that I’m pretty disgusted with Voopoo. Well I was never really impressed with Voopoo anyway, I have sent them a couple of emails about their products, and have never received a reply!  BAD customer service, BAD way to conduct a business!  But I’m just small fry customer level for them… why should they reply! Why bother listening to feedback about their mods! I get the feeling that they think they are sooo way above the little people that purchase their products!

However have a little look at the video, I just really feel for Tony B. This guy has been through the mill with Voopoo and then dragged back again.

So In case you didn’t wanna watch the video, a little recap from me. Vandy Vape ordered 40,000 Gene chips and boards from Voopoo as Tony B really wanted the Gene chip in the Pulse 80w mod. Voopoo agreed. A little while  down the line, Voopoo raised the price by 15%, then again a little later raised it again, so it was now 30% higher. Tony B and Vandy Vape swallowed this price hike and agreed to take a cut in profits. Still no Gene chip was delivered to Vandy Vape. I think the final straw was Voopoo stating that Vandy Vape have copied the Drag with the resin panels, and that they are now bringing out their own 80w squonk mod with the Gene chip!

Theres an awful lot of ‘playground’ tactics in what Voopoo have done to Tony B and Vandy Vape. Promising something that it looks like they never had any intention of delivering!

Sooo Not NICE Voopoo! Shame on you guys.

Now I’ve seen posts and videos of people saying boycott Voopoo, and this is how people feel. What a way to rip off the little guy. I personally will not be buying Voopoo’s squonk mod.

As for the Pulse 80w squonk mod. It will still be manufactured, but with a Vandy Vape chip, and of course that will keep the mod at a lower cost to the vape community.  So Vandy Vape and Tony B will still deliver, good on you guys!
