‘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!

Fogstar Batteries – 5 Star Customer Service!

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!

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 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:

Initial Impressions

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:

Tesla Punk 86w Mod Review

A huge shout-out to Urvaping.com for sending me out the latest in the Tesla Punk line up. The Punk 86w is a tube mod, takes me back to when I first started vaping, box mods weren’t even a thing back then!

So my last Tesla, the Punk 85w, I absolutely loved, it was a box mod, was…. When I love a mod I tend to use it all the time, and after using the Punk 85w for around 3 months solid, the fire button stopped being quite so clicky and ended up misfiring more than firing, so unfortunately that mod got shelved!

Anyhow… lets take a look at the Tesla Punk 86w cylinder mod.

The Wotofo Profile Unity RTA Review

I’m going to start this review by declaring my undying love for the Wotofo Profile RDA! Yes I truly-madly-deeply love that little guy, with his mesh coil and huge cotton heart! Seriously at this moment in time (and for the last few months) The Profile RDA has been the only RDA that I have used happily and with no problems.

So you can imagine my excitement when Wotofo contacted me to let me know they were sending the Profile Unity RTA! A tank version of the Profile! 

:happydance:

The Profile Unity RTA is a collaboration between Wotofo, MrJustRight1 and The Vapor Chronicles, and I was expecting nothing short of wonderful from this RTA!

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.
