SUA Vapors – Simplicity Upon Amazing – Eliquid Review
The Spinfuel eLiquid Review Team recently spent several days learning about TFN™ Nicotine. In fact, Tom is busy finishing up an article on Tobacco Free Nicotine, aka TFN™, and how it might, but probably won’t, make a difference to the FDA. Simply put, tobacco free nicotine is the term used for nicotine that is acquired from any source other than tobacco plants. When it comes to affecting the flavor of an eliquid, rest assured that no one could ever tell the difference, as you’ll find out in Tom’s piece. As it just so happens, this review for SUA Vapors falls right into place with the subject of TFN. SUA Vapors is a company that makes splendid eliquid concoctions with nicotine that is not sourced from tobacco.
SUA Vapors stands for Simplicity Upon Amazing, a three flavor e-liquid line crafted with the utmost in quality-sourced ingredients, including TFN™ Nicotine.
TFN™ Nicotine used as an ingredient in the SUA Vapors line is made from a state-of-the-art facility that eliminates impurities that are found in nicotine made from tobacco plants. The result is supposed to be an exceptional flavor experience. While we accept that we have little experience with TFN’s, we experienced no negative effects of using a TFN nicotine over a tobacco plant nicotine solution. In fact, we couldn’t tell the difference.
For the most part, we found the three eliquids from SUA Vapors did provide an excellent flavor profiles, but in order to experience that deliciously smooth flavor of Mango, Pineapple, or Melon, we had to make a small adjustment in the way we reviewed them.
Atomizer Steeping or Steeping at Home
These three eliquids are above 50% VG but we’re not sure of the ratios. If we had to guess, and we did, we estimated that they were 60% VG, 40% PG based on the viscosity of the liquid and the intensity of the flavors. We’d like to remind our readers that every eliquid can benefit from a little “at home” steeping if, for no other reason, to oxygenate the liquid before vaping.
Filling an atomizer and vaping does, at first, produce an almost too intense burst of true authentic flavor from these three eliquids, . Because we prefer a HighVG or MaxVG ratio those first few hits from the drip tips were, well, a bit unsettling. So, in order to smooth the flavors out we allowed the ejuice to sit overnight in our tanks.
The process above is a fast way to steep an eliquid. We’ve done this when eliquids have come in for review but have a ‘date of birth’ of less than a week or so, or are higher in PG than we’re used to. But, this process is also used to take the edge off of intense flavor profiles. The mixture of the ingredients and the exposure to the air, especially overnight, reveals the true nature of the flavor.
This in-tank steeping was most effective with the Mango flavored eliquid, but it also softened the flavor of the Pineapple and Melon. As it turned out, allowing the liquids to mix with plenty of air resulted in higher scores.

SUV Vapors – Melon – A Spinfuel Choice Award Winner
“Melon by SUA Vapors is an exhilarating flavor experience, a rich profile of fresh sweet melons with a hint of menthol in a creamy milky base for an uplifting all-day vape. SUA Vapors stands for Simplicity Upon Amazing, with the entire e-liquid line carefully crafted with quality-sourced ingredients that includes TFN Nicotine.”
Julia: 5 Stars – Melon by SUA is about as complex as it can get. There is a distinct flavor of cantaloupe and honeydew, a soft underbelly of cream, and on the exhale a slight cool buzz. Definitely an all-day-vape, and one of the finest melon eliquids I’ve had in a very long time.
Tom: 5 Stars – Coming out of the gate on the inhale (or rather after the direct lung hit. There is no flavor in any eliquid on a direct lung inhale), I was hit with a super fresh, authentic melon-y flavor. Although there is a light creamy bottom layer and menthol tones on the way out, they blend much better with melon flavors then I’ve ever seen possible. A delightful and long-lasting flavor combination, definitely in my rotation.
Kiera: 5 Stars – I am head over heels with a melon flavor, and that’s something I thought would be impossible. Then again, I don’t know of a single melon ejuice out there that has a creamy base and a menthol kick going out. Completely original, yet the melon flavors make it seem a tiny bit familiar. Definitely a keeper!
Jason: 5 Stars – It took me 2 days to decide on the score of Melon. I couldn’t work it out with my tastebuds for some reason. On the inhale there is a sweet melon profile but somehow I was tasting a creamy flavor as well. Then, on the exhale a menthol cool mixing with the melon created something so different, yet so delicious it threw me into a state of confusion. Finally, after vaping the entire bottle I decided that this is a profile that needs to be vaped by everyone. It’s so damn good!
SUV Vapors – Pineapple – A Spinfuel Choice Award Winner
“Pineapple by SUA Vapors is an irresistible fruity composition, formulates with a swirl of the freshest tropical pineapples and signature creamy milk to strike a perfect balance between rich and light.”
Julia: 5 Stars – An eliquid with a singular flavor profile, Pineapple is exactly that; pineapple in vapor form. Most pineapple flavors I’ve vaped before have other flavors mixed, or are totally sweet versions. This one is real, authentic pineapple. Not too sweet, not too tangy. Tons of flavor and vapor. Pineapple lovers will make this their all day vape.
Tom: 5 Stars – I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that these eliquids do not have tobacco-based nicotine. This flavor is just straight up Pineapple with no frills. Authentic, warm, and full of real pineapple flavor, this is a flavor profile that can be enjoyed by anyone that likes the taste of an actual pineapple, not some pineapple Plus combo. Real flavor, real vapor, a nice thump of a throat hit, and very satisfying.
Kiera: 5 Stars – A good pineapple flavored eliquid is something to hold on to, especially if you’re looking for authentic pineapple flavor, not the overly sweetened type. With this pineapple ejuice you don’t get anything but fresh pineapple, with just a hint of creaminess that takes the edge off tart pineapples. Surprisingly delicious and quite the vapor maker.
Jason: 5 Stars – At first pineapple with a shot of creamy flavoring didn’t sound so hot. Then I was reminded of other pineapple types, the Pina Colada for one, so I gave it a go and was blown away by the purity of the flavor profile and the immense clouds of vapor this juice can produce. Adding that touch of creamy milk to a stark flavor like pineapple was innovative, and smart. Loved it!
SUV Vapors – Mango
“Mango by SUA Vapors is a sensational infusion of sweet tropical mango with a subtle note of creamy milk, perfectly blended for the ultimate balance between fruity and creamy.”
Julia: 4.5 – Mango was by far the most intense flavor. This is real, honest to goodness Mango, no added sweeteners, no other flavor component. Pure, freshly peeled ripe mango in vapor form.
Tom: 4.75 Stars – I was going to give Mango the full 5 Stars for the first few hours of vaping this amazing flavor. But after a while it seemed to stay just a little too sharp for my taste. Ripe mangos should be very sweet, with a strange exotic flavor that cannot be mistaken for anything but mango. This eliquid is that, to a point, and had it been just a little sweeter it would have been MY all-day-vape in the fruit category. Others, that appreciate authenticity more than sweet fruits, will love it.
Kiera: 5 Stars – Mango is a flavor you see a lot of eliquid companies adding to their lineup, at least when they were allowed to introduce new flavors, but this one from SUA is the finest one I’ve had ever. This is pure mango, as though I peeled a fresh mango and somehow vaporized it. Every flavor note that makes up the mango is recreated in the vapor. A stunningly accurate eliquid, and now one in my rotation.
Jason: 5 Stars – SUA isn’t trying to play games with this Mango flavor. It is exactly what it portends to be, pure unadulterated mangos. For my personal taste it could be a little creamier, like a mango milkshake, but to vapers looking for that mango flavor that hasn’t been diluted with other fruits or sweeteners, or whatever, this is one that should be tried.
Bottom Line – Overall Impressions
Unquestionably, SUA Vapors is on to something here. While this might be our first review of an eliquid line using a TFN nicotine, we don’t think it will be the last, regardless of the FDA. Flavors were clean, the liquids crystal clear, and the vapor production was ample. SUA Vapors is a first-rate, high quality eliquid line worthy of the $21.95 price tag for the 30mL bottle. (Expect to pay a little more for TFN ejuice)
The three flavors reviewed will limit the appeal to vapers looking for fruity flavors, but we have no doubt that the fruity line will expand to include flavors like peach, raspberry, blueberry, and so on. As the first three flavors, SUA chose well, telling its potential customers that SUA is no ordinary brand So, for now, if you like Mango, Melon, or Pineapple these are eliquids you should definitely try. Available at Element Vape – Soon to be everywhere!
