SMOK SCAR-18 230W Vape Kit Review
SMOK SCAR-18 230W Vape Kit Review

The SCAR-18 vape kit from SMOK may not redefine high-wattage vaping, but it’s arguably the best vape kit SMOK has produced in years, serving as a new flagship for the venerable vape company. Let’s see why, starting with the impressive specs. The SMOK SCAR 18 Outputs up to 230W.   Accommodating two high-amp 18650 batteries in a zinc-alloy [...]

Wirice Launcher Sub-Ohm Tank Review
Wirice Launcher Sub-Ohm Tank Review

Maybe the deluge of COVID news has addled my brain, but I can’t recall the last time we reviewed a standalone sub-ohm vape tank on this site. We’ve seen plenty of companion tanks included in kits. We’ve seen iterative updates on existing models. But to see new brands launch never-before-seen products? Well, it’s rare.   Enter the [...]

Freemax MaxLuke (FireLuke 3?) Sub-Ohm Tank Review
Freemax MaxLuke (FireLuke 3?) Sub-Ohm Tank

How important are vape product names? According to Freemax, they’re so important that the new MaxLuke sub-ohm tank gets two. Depending on where you look, this new, compact sub-ohm contender is either the “MaxLuke” or the brand-loyal “FireLuke 3.”   Our test model had “MaxLuke” on the bottom of the tank, so we’re going with that. Besides, [...]

INNOKIN KROMA-R KIT REVIEW
KROMA-R 80W STARTER KIT BY INNOKIN – REVIEW

We tend to not shine a lot of light on “celebrity-endorsed” vape product collaborations, but credit where credit is due. Since partnering with Innokin a few years back, Phil “Pbusardo” Busardo and Dimitris “Vapin’ Greek” Agrafiotis have lent their expertise to some seriously classy, well-made vape gear. Count the Kroma-R 80W Kit among them. Though most [...]

DOVPO X MR. JUSTRIGHT1 OHMAGE SUB-OHM TANK
OHMAGE SUB-OHM by DOVPO X MR. JUSTRIGHT1 – REVIEW

Anyone have a crystal ball? Well, no worries if you don’t, because I have a preview of our year-end “best of” lists (2020 of course) -- the Dovpo Ohmage sub-ohm tank will be near the top. Yeah, that’s a bold statement for the first week of January 2020, but just a few weeks after claiming [...]

UWELL EVDILO 200W & VALYRIAN II KIT REVIEW

The whole doesn’t always equal the sum of its parts. A trite way to start this review? Maybe. But it’s never been more evident than with the all-new Uwell Evdilo Starter Kit, which seems like it should be an awesome vape setup. But there’s so many missed opportunities here, I kind of can’t believe it comes from [...]

AAAvape Anulax Tank Review Spinfuel VAPE
Is the AAAvape Anulax Tank a Good Sub-Ohm Tank?

We try not to make childish jokes too often around here, but if you came up to me in the office and asked, “Hey, have you tried the new Anulax?” I’d probably question your fiber intake and then call human resources. But it’s not a suppository, kids – the AAAvape Anulax is a solid sub-ohm [...]

BLITZ ENTERPRISES X TVP FP 30MM RTA
BLITZ ENTERPRISES x TVP FP RTA Review

I think we’ve reached a weird point in vape tank design. While 25-26mm diameter tanks (and bubble-shaped expansion glass parts) are all the rage, I don’t think we’re ready for a wealth of 30mm atomizers. Because the Blitz Enterprises FP RTA is an absolute gargantuan tank if there ever was one.But do you know what [...]

Eleaf iJust ECM Stick Mod Kit Review
Eleaf iJust ECM Stick Mod Kit Review

Most vape mod review sessions end with me answering questions, but it’s rare to come away from one with any. Yet, that’s exactly what happened with the iJust ECM – a mod kit that made me ask “Why?” on more than one occasion. The iJust ECM is a direct descendent of last year’s iJust 3 pen-style [...]

SMOK NORD Pod System Starter Kit Review
SMOK NORD Pod Mod Starter Kit Review

I haven’t bothered to count, but it seems to me that there are way more AIO, ultra-portable pod mods coming out of China’s vaping industry than there are mid-to-high box mods and sub-ohm tanks. I’ve never been a fan of these tiny vape devices, what with their low vapor production and the need for nicotine [...]

SMOK Species & V8 Baby V2 Starter Kit Review
SMOK Species & V8 Baby V2 Starter Kit Review

The SMOK Species Starter Kit (with the V8 Baby V2) was reviewed after I reviewed the SMOK E-PRIV (reviewed here), and in so doing left me puzzled. You see, I went into the E-PRIV review believing that this vape mod and V12 Prince tank was the powerhouse kit and the Species was not quite in the powerhouse [...]

Aspire Dynamo 220W & NEPHO Tank Starter Kit Review
Aspire Dynamo 220W & Nepho Tank Starter Kit

Aspire Dynamo and Nepho Tank Starter Kit Review - Coming off the recently released SMOK E-PRIV (reviewed here) and SMOK SPECIES Starter Kit reviews I had little confidence in the Aspire Dynamo and Nepho Tank Starter Kit. At the end of the review process (about 8 days total) I admit I found more to like than [...]

ELEAF LEXICON 235W & ELLO DURO STARTER KIT
Eleaf LEXICON 235W & ELLO DURO Starter Kit Review

The first thing I noticed about the Eleaf Lexicon Mod was its capability to output a maximum wattage of 235W with just two 18650 cells. That alone is quite an accomplishment for Eleaf, and it says a lot about the chipset being used in the Lexicon. After that, me and the Eleaf Lexicon got off [...]

Joyetech RiftCore Duo RTA Review Spinfuel Vape
Joyetech Riftcore DUO RTA Review

I have to admit, all these years later, I’m still not convinced ceramic is the future of vape coil technology. But the all-new Joyetech Riftcore DUO RTA does an interesting job making a case to the contrary. Combining plate-like heating elements with a mesh design to ensure even ramping throughout the cotton wick, and easier [...]

Joyetech Espion Silk Kit Review – A second opinion
Joyetech Espion Silk Kit Review – A second opinion

Joyetech Espion Silk Review - Another opinion... Vape mod manufacturers are a funny bunch. Because there’s literally no rhyme or reason to device naming schemes anymore. Could you imagine this recent conversation at Joyetech? “Hey, we have a small internal battery mod that resembles nothing we’ve released in the last year...” “Then it’s part of the Espion family.” “...and [...]
