A massive thanks to our new sponsor Ave40.com for sending me out the
Rincoe Mechman kit to give a try. To be honest they didn’t actually send
the kit, but the mod and tank separate, reason for telling you this I
only got one coil, and I believe the kit comes with two. Anyhow…. lets see what it’s like.

Rincoe Mechman Kit Initial Impressions
my mod came boxed (my tank didn’t) Nice strong box means the mod is
nice and safe in transit, but we’re not gonna talk about the box…. So
the mod is heavy! It’s a dual 18650 battery mod and when those batteries
are installed it’s a real hefty piece of kit. Of course that tends to
lend itself to a quality feel and this really does feel like a decent
Firstly, OFRF is pronounced OFF! Apparently the R is silent…. ok now
that’s out the way OFRF emailed me to ask if I would like to check out
their new Sub-Ohm tank with a brand new conical nexMESH coil. Don’t mind
if I do I thought! So a massive thanks and shout out to OFRF for
sending me out the nexMESH sub-ohm tank, along with a t-shirt and the
most amazing coffee mug! If you don’t fancy the tank then at least get the mug!…. best shaped mug ever, honestly!
Fast forward a couple of weeks and the package landed in my porch….

OFRF nexMesh Sub-Ohm Tank Initial Thoughts
start with the packaging, it comes nicely boxed, the packaging is
pretty plain but well made and not something that’s going to get crushed
going through the postal system. Opening the box and ughh the tank is
black, now I know that doesn’t detract from the performance but for me
black is worst colour for anything vape related, I like shiny, I like
We now have a forum integrated into the review blog! How fab is that 😀
I gathered that not many vapers really like the old style SMF forum layout that we have, so I decided to add a forum right here. You can find it via the ‘Forum’ button at the top menu bar, or here.
Now bear in mind this is a brand new forum, and still in its infancy stage. More categories and sub forums will be added as needed, but if you fancy being part of a brand new community, then why not come and join us!
We’re here to help with problems, offer advice if we can, and chat about anything vape related, from vendors and manufacturers, to mods and tanks.
Please feel free to come and register with us, or login via Facebook, and have a look around. Suggestions for sub-forums and boards are always welcome as we’d like you to feel a valued part of our sparkling new venture!
So why not tell your friends and family, and we’ll hopefully see you there! 🙂
Massive thanks to Wotofo for sending out their newest RDA, the Recurve
Dual which is a collaboration between them and good old Mike Vapes. I
like Mike, watch his reviews now and again, and absolutely love the
Recurve squonk mod that they brought out a while ago.
thought that I had got the original single coil recurve, but a quick
check on the shelf and a-top of my mods and it looks like I haven’t, so
this isn’t (actually it can’t be) a comparison type of review as I
don’t have the original to compare it to…
Either way, lets take a look at the Recurve dual.
Recurve Dual Specs:
Diameter: 24mm Overall Height: 34mm (with drip tip and 510 pin) Threading: 510 thread Drip Tip: 810 Body Material: Stainless steel Coil Configuration: Dual coil Juice Feeding Method: Drip/Squonk Insulator Material: German PEEK Wattage Range: 40-120W
the Recurve Dual arrived in the normal green and black Wotofo
packaging, with a clear see through lid, and nestled in the black foam
was the RDA. First look and it’s extremely plain! No over the top
branding, and no curved cap like the original Recurve (that’s the only
comparison I intend to make) Just a slight curve on the very top of the
cap. It’s a 24mm RDA so will fit vast majority of my mods (good thing)
meaning it’s not too chunky as some dual coil RDAs are.
couple of weeks ago the lovely Vapesmarter got in touch and asked if he
could send me something to have a look at, he was interested to hear my
thoughts on a vape device he’d made. Knowing nothing more than this, I
agreed (quite excited actually as it’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a
little run down on Vapesmarter… His name is Stu (and he has the
cutest little dog called Alfie!) he’s a mod maker, and he makes vape
products from sustainable wood that he sources in the UK. Sometimes
adding resin to make Stabwood. Everything is done by hand in his
workshop from start to finish. Stu will liaise with the vaper to agree
design, colours, board, and whatever else is needed to make each vape
device exactly what the customer wants, and each piece is truly unique!
I don’t normally make these kind of blog posts, but I feel that Fogstar really do deserve a shout out for the customer service I received this week.
This week started like any other, approving comments, checking stats on the sites, chatting with members on the forum, reading emails. I noticed an email from Fogstar with an attractive little discount code inside for the Bank Holiday. Now I have needed new batteries for a while now, some of mine are so old they are almost ready to draw their pension and go to a recycling bucket far far away!
So I headed over to Fogstar and to cut a long story short, I ordered 6 Candy Skull 18650’s, a couple of 16350’s (my 16350’s are 8 years old and certainly not capable of running most of todays low ohm coils!) and a pack of battery wraps, as a couple of my batteries are in need of a new outfit!
So Todays review is on the Augvape VX200 box mod, a simple looking dual
18650 mod that packs quite a punch. This was sent to me by Urvapin.com,
so a huge shout out and thank you to those guys n gals over there!
Augvape VX200 Specs:
Material: ABS+PC plastic Size: 87.5*45*29.2mm Standby current: < 100 μA Power range: 5-200 W Voltage range: 0.2-7.2 V Resistance range: 0.05-3.0Ω Output current : 40 A Working efficiency: 94%

Initial Thoughts on the Augvape VX200
So my first thoughts when I opened the box was how plain the mod is. Removing it from the box was quite a shocker, there is just no weight to VX200 mod what so ever! Seriously lightweight! 😮
The front and back panels are a kind of see through black plastic, the
sides are a dark grey plastic. The bottom and top, yep you guessed it…
plastic. So if you want something lightweight this will be perfect. It
does however give it a cheap kind of feel.

Initial Impressions on the iStick Rim
I was pretty shocked by the colour and design when I first opened the
box, it’s not what you could call a pretty mod, but it did kind of grow
on me over the next couple of minutes. I got the E-green one, it has a
scaly pattern, but catch it in the light and you can see a blue sheen
over the top
A massive thanks to our newest sponsor Elegomall.com for sending me out
the Gearbox 200w box mod to have a look over. The main point that caught
my eye with this mod was the ‘Wireless charging’ option! Hmmm new
innovation… but how does it perform? Lets see.
Edge-to-edge IML panel, fit in palm of hand perfectly Knob button design, easy to operate VM OMIN chip supports wireless 1.5A fast charging 2.5A quick charging save time OLED screen display Size: 26 x 55 x 92mm Battery: Dual 18650 Working Voltage: 6.4-8.4V Charging Current: 2.5A Temperature: 2100℃~300℃ Wireless Charging: 1.5A(10W)
In The Box:
1 x Gear Box Mod 1 x USB Cable 1 x Wireless Charger 1 x User Manual
the Ecofri Gear Box Mod comes pretty well packaged (but don’t all mods
these days!) And my first look at the mod left me quite impressed, it’s
actually not a bad looking mod at all. I really like the gunmetal finish
on the edges, and this also looks like its lacquered too giving it a
bit of extra protection from knocks and scratches.
This was sent to me by one of our old sponsors, and I’ve only just got
round to having a little play with it. So this isn’t going to be a full
review, but more of a ‘quick look around’ the Tinker, and a few thoughts
on the mod.
Thanks to Vapesourcing for your sponsorship over the last 12 months, and this is the Wismec Tinker.
Initial Thoughts On The Wismec Tinker
the Tinker is a triple 18650 battery mod, that can reach 300w! The last
triple battery mod I owned was the very first Realeaux… I took it out
of the box, popped the batteries in, took them back out, put it back in
the box and sold it! The weight of 3 batteries in a mod just isn’t for
me, and it wasn’t comfy to hold either.
So the Tinker is inspired by a classic Nike sport shoe! What the?…..
