Initial Thoughts on the iJust 21700 Kit

Initial Thoughts on the Wismec Sinuous Kit

The Sinuous kit comes well packaged, and looks really cool when you take the lid off the box. I got a green one, and its not a bad looking little kit. Removing it from the box, and you can tell that it’s a budget device. It’s made from some kind of plastic, and what looks like aluminium top plate and battery cover. This of course means that the mod is extremely light, even after you have a popped a battery in.

Initial Thoughts on the Nikola Wolverine

After falling in love with the Nikola Medea a couple of months ago I was quite excited when Urvapin asked me if I wanted to review the Wolverine, that was until I actually saw it. The Wolverine is more of a mans mod! It’s big and chunky, and the colours aren’t fantastic, coming in black with red paint splatter (which I have) gunmetal, or army green, there’s nothing really feminine about any of them.

The Wotofo Elder Dragon RDA Review

A massive thank you to Wotofo for sending out the Elder Dragon RDA for me to have a look at. The Elder Dragon was designed and made by Wotofo and a Japanese reviewer called Ryujin.

Tri Core Fused Clapton Coil

Initial Thoughts on the Wotofo Elder Dragon:

The Elder Dragon comes packaged in Wotofo’s custom black & green coloured box, with a little viewing window on the top, and as always it’s very well presented.

Removing the Elder Drgon from the box, and I really do like the shape and design of this little RDA. It’s a 22mm single coil, I have the gun metal colour, and it has a shiny polished kind of finish to it.

The top cap is a nicely finished piece of engineering, and Wotofo state that it is shaped like a Pagoda. Google Pagoda and the definition is “a tiered tower with multiple eaves” So yeah, I can kind of see the resemblance, there is a couple of tiers on the cap, I guess if you count the drip tip into the configuration too then it makes more sense.

The Dovpo Topside Squonk Mod Review – Top Marks For Dovpo?

The Dovpo Topside Initial Thoughts

So the Topside is a collaboration between Dovpo (of course) and Brian from The Vapor Chronicles, I love it when actual Vapers team up with manufacturers, this means we get something that has been properly thought out!

The Topside comes in a plastic box, with a covering cardboard sleeve, and inside the box as well as the Topside you get a little card from Brian, with a quick note about him being the creator, and of course plugging his youtube channel, but at the bottom Brian urges us all to ‘Think outside the box!’ And this is exactly what he has done with the box, because once you have removed the contents it doubles up as a little storage container for your wire and wick, and the top panel has 4 holes that will serve as an atty stand! Fantastic start! 

:thumbup:

On the Dovpo Topside Mod, well first impressions were…. It’s kind of heavy, even without the battery, but it does have a very ‘quality’ feel to it. Next impressions were… it’s kind of ugly! It  looks like a stretched out Pico that someone has molded and squished the sides in.

Eleaf Elven Pod Kit Review

Massive thanks to Eleaf for sending out the Elven Pod system for me to try. Now I don’t like pods, they just don’t ‘do it‘ for me 🙁  However I do of course understand that many new vapers will start vaping with a pod type device, and many established vapers will maybe need a pod at some stage… so on that note, lets take a look at the Elven and see what it can do.

In The Box

1×Elven Battery
2×Elven Pods
1×QC USB Cable
1×User Manual

Initial Thoughts on the Eleaf Elven

My initial thoughts, well the very first thought was “Ughh it’s a pod!” My second thought, it’s actually not bad looking. I have the red one, the colour is beautiful, it has a lovely metallic finish and it does look very cool.

The Elven is rounded at each end, and the actual pod itself (the mouthpiece and tank) is a see through grey/black colour, and on either flat side of the device is an oval shaped hole so you can see how much liquid you have left. On one side you get a battery indicator LED,  and the bottom end is black and has the charging port.

The iJoy Shogun Univ Mod Review – There’s a New Dictator In Town!

A quick shout out to Urvapin.com for sending over the iJoy Shogun Univ Mod for me to try out. I’ve been using this for the last week, and yes it does have some similarities with the Voopoo Drag 2, but the real question is, is it better?

iJoy Shogun Univ 180w Box Mod Package Includes:

1* IJOY SHOGUN Univ MOD
1* USB Cable
1* Manual
1* Warranty Card

Initial Thoughts On The iJoy Shogun Univ Box Mod

The Shogun comes well packaged in a nice solid box, with a sleeve around the outside with a pic of a samurai or ninja or something along those lines on the front, but I don’t care about the box, I just care about what’s inside!

The Shogun isn’t a bad looking mod, it has resin panels to both sides, iJoy haven’t cut corners and put resin on just one side, and splattered the name of the mod across the other, they made it even looking! This is good, I like resin, and I like to see it on both sides. The colour of my resin is red and green and being totally honest this is probably the worst looking one of all the choices. I’m more into blue’s and purples, but it’s still not a bad looking mod. The resin itself has a kind of rubbery feel to it, its lovely and smooth to sit and caress!

Voopoo & Ben Phillips – Stupidity At It’s Utter Finest! (Oh and the Voopoo Drag 2)

The Voopoo Drag 2 was sent to me by Vapesourcing.com for me to try out, review, let you folks know my thoughts. So a huge thanks to Vapesourcing for that.

This unfortunately isn’t  going to be a  review though….

Now I don’t like Voopoo! Let me get that out of the way to start with. After receiving the initial Drag, with it’s unattractive shape, it was clearly designed for men with large hands that could hold the Drag without a problem. I didn’t like it.

I emailed Voopoo about a problem I had with a sticky fire button, and never received a reply… so much for customer service, these guys don’t give a flying **** about their customers.

Then there was the Voopoo & Tony B drama, if you don’t know what that was,  you can see a quick run down here  Now people and reviewers were pretty peeved about what happened here, but it was a while ago, and dirt gets kicked under the carpet….people started to forget. Reviewers started to review their products again…

So rewind to a just over a week ago, I started to use the Voopoo Drag 2, getting ready to review it. And I have to say the shape is much better than the first sharp edged, uncomfortable, heavyweight, piece of Poo that is the Drag version 1.

And then…. This happened!

Voopoo sponsored Ben Phillips to make a video of the Drag 2… but not just any old video, a prank video. A little background on Ben Phillips: He’s a Youtuber, he has 4.1 million subscribers, and his videos target kids…. little people under 18 years of age (and maybe a few older than 18 too, but theres no getting away from the fact that the majority of his viewers are children)

So Voopoo sponsored a kids Youtuber to make a video about a vaping device! Whaaaat!! 

:mad:

Not only is the fact that most of Ben Phillips viewers going to be under the legal age of vaping, Ben Philips decided to fill the tank on the Voopoo Drag with liquid helium to prank his brother! Stupid doesn’t even begin to describe the whole fiasco.

We’ve had a struggle here in the UK to get vaping accepted, even now we have some of the most stupid vaping laws drawn up by the government, but vaping is allowed…. Advocacy groups, members of the public have all spent time writing to MP’s, health advisors, parliament, doing everything they can to help our plight as vapers, and this guy – Ben Phillips along with the company Voopoo have started to undo all the good that has been done in the past, with just one stupid video!!! Anti Ecig campaigners are having a field day with this mess!

Only god knows what the FDA in United States are going to do with class act of pure stupidity!
I don’t know who to hate more… Voopoo for sponsoring this kids youtuber, or Ben Phillips for being a total and utter pillock!

Because it’s easier if you just watch the kind of commotion that this has caused, here’s a couple of video’s so you can actually see what’s happening now….

Now I’ve just checked and it does look like Ben Phillips has taken the offending video down, but Voopoo! Why would you do this in the first place? Now Voopoo have already made it totally clear with the Tony B saga that they have no morals at all, so for them, this was just a way to get their products out there, get some exposure… but to kids, bl**dy disgraceful!!!

So, I won’t be reviewing the Drag 2, but for anyone that is curious, it’s way better than the original drag, way more comfy to hold, and this last week it’s been working a treat, but it’s a real shame that I’m going to say….

‘Don’t buy it!’

In fact I won’t be buying anything with the Voopoo name again! But it’s your choice, just remember these guys have shown that they don’t care about us vapers, they don’t care about the vaping industry, they don’t care about advocacy, they certainly don’t care about kids and illegal under age vaping, all they care about is selling their products and making money, and quite obviously they don’t care how they do it!

Shame on you Voopoo!!

Initial Thoughts on the Pico X

Firstly, anyone who knows me knows that a couple of years ago the original Pico box mod was a firm favourite of mine, teamed up with a small MTL tank, the Pico was my kind of vape heaven. Opening the box on this one and lots of happy memories came flooding back. I used to hate big dual battery box mods, and yet now that’s what I use daily. So it really was a blast from the past to open the Pico X box and be greeted by this lovely, small, cute little mod!

Wismec Active & Amor NSE Review – Vape & Music Anyone? — (I killed it! )

(A quick note, if you skip some of this review, just make sure you read the bonus content at the bottom!)

Massive thanks to our sponsor Vapesourcing.com for sending me out the Wismec Active mod and Amor NSE tank to take a little look at.

The Wismec Active is supposedly a rugged little soldier, shock proof, waterproof, and Bluetooth enabled. Why Bluetooth enabled?…. So you can play your music through it of course! 

Why would anyone want to play music through their mod? I have no idea… Seems a little bit gimmicky to me, maybe aimed at the younger vaping generation (18+ of course)    The picture on the packaging shows someone abseiling down the side of the box… Hmmm classic!
