The Rincoe Mechman Kit Review

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

So 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 quality mod! 

:yes:

‘Black Angel’ Review – A Stabwood E-Pipe Hand Made by Vapesmarter

A 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 Vapesmarter mod) 

:ting:

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!

The Augvape VX200 Review – Cheap & Cheerful?

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.

So 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 

:yes:

So 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.

Wismec Tinker Review

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

So 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?….. 

:dunno:

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

A massive thanks to Vapesourcing.com for sending out the Dovpo Topside for me to have a play with. I’ve heard people mention this, and what a fantastic innovation it is, a top filling squonker means no more wasted liquid, and no faffing about with filler bottles. I actually couldn’t wait to get my mitts on it. 

:yes:

1* Bottle (pre-installed)
1* Extra Bottle Kit
1* 1*18650 Battery Adapter
1* USB Cable
1* User Manual
1* Card

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.

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 Specs:

Charging Port: Micro USB

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!!
