Charlie’s Chalk Dust Slam Berry E-liquid Review

Sweet strawberries mixed with vanilla ice cream. That drums up images of trips to the berry patch and making homemade ice cream in the bucket. We have an electric ice cream maker and strawberry is one of my favorite flavors so this should be interesting. This is one of their many flavors and promises to be something special.

About Charlie’s Chalk Dust

I wanted to find out more about the company but wasn’t able to find much online. Their website has a little back story about where the name came from, which is nice and gives a little history of the founder, Charlie, as a kid. The idea of the chalk dust comes from a chalkboard that his father would write their restaurant's daily specials on. The dust would settle on the top of a bell that sat next to it. I would have liked to discover where the company is headquartered, what their mission is, and how they approach making their e-liquids. Unfortunately, I was not able to find any of this on the website or their Facebook page.

My Experience With Slam Berry E-liquid

As a kid, ice cream to me came in buckets with strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate. I have been a fan of strawberry ice cream for a long time so when I read the description for this e-liquid, I was pumped. Many flavors like this claim to have an “ice cream” type flavor, but in truth few actually do.

I really like the design on the bottle. It’s the “black label” series with white lettering. It’s a very nice-looking label and comes in a glass bottle with dropper. I have seen two different designs for this series, one in black bottles with gold and purple. And the other with the clear glass bottles with the white label and artistic imaging on the front. Both are very stylish and eye-catching. I think the black is meant to be more intense and exclusive. I think they designed these bottles to appeal to different types of shoppers and apparently, this works well for both designs.

I got the 15 mil bottle for $13 in 6 mg strength for testing on my RDA. I am testing it on my Reuleaux 200W mod with my Dead Rabbit RDA at 60W. I usually like to test new flavors on my RDA first and then in one of my tanks to see if the flavor changes any with more restricted airflow.

When I open the bottle I get a scent of strawberry and cream. It is light and smells almost like opening a jar of strawberry jam. I put a few drops on my freshly-wicked Dead Rabbit and hit the fire button. Oh, this is really good. It doesn't taste like jam or have that artificial sweetener flavor ( or should say the undertones of artificial sweetener).

Vape Flavor

On the inhale, I get the strawberry flavor followed by a creamy flavor on the exhale. There is no real ice cream flavor I can detect, but it is very good. The flavor is nice and is something I could use as an all-day vape.

I was really hoping this would be more like a real ice cream flavor but it is closer to a strawberry milk or maybe milkshake in my opinion. It is very tasty, and I like it. I was expecting something different and it’s kind of a let-down. But as a flavor, it is really good and if you like strawberry milk you’ll love this one. This flavor is actually very similar to another e-liquid brand but I think the flavor in this one is a little bit better.

Vape Cloud

The formulations for these bottles is 60VG/40PG so it does make some really nice clouds. It is probably more suited for tanks at 40PG but for testing purposes, it works. I got some really nice cloud production and fogged up the room after about 5 good hits with the airflow all the way open. I also used this in my Uforce tank and got some pretty nice vapor from it there as well. The flavor was still good but not as pronounced as it is on the RDA. Still very good on both atomizers for flavor and vapor.

What We Liked

+ Nice sweet flavor of strawberry and cream
+ Not a candy strawberry flavor
+ Good flavor and good vapor production
+ Economy-sized bottles

What We Didn't

-The 60 ml bottle is priced at $19.99 which is a good value for such a big bottle. It is priced in the same range as other premium e-liquids of the same size. I purchased a smaller bottle for testing, but the larger one is a better value.

Value

I don’t mind paying more for e-liquids that really suit me. It is hard to find some flavors that you really like and when you do you should stock up on it.

Final Verdict

Everyone’s taste buds are different so it’s always a good idea to try new flavors, whether you end up liking them or not. Your tastes will change over time and you’ll find more flavors you enjoy. Some vapers often pick up on flavors that others don’t. If you don’t taste a certain flavor come back and try it again later.

Your ability to taste certain flavors is determined by many factors and if you happen to be sick or have a stuffy nose, it can affect your sense of taste. I have had a bit of a cold the past few days so it could be affecting my ability to taste certain flavors. All in all, I like it. It has a good flavor, makes good vapor, and it's priced affordably so If I was in the market for a strawberry milk I would buy this one.

Although it didn’t taste like ice cream to me, I still enjoyed it and will use the rest of the bottle. I may even buy a larger bottle because it is really a good-tasting juice. I definitely recommend it to vapers who like strawberries and cream flavors.

Wotofo Troll V2 RDA Review

Wotofo made the original Troll RDA and it was very popular with DIY’ers. The Troll V2 is the latest addition to this line and promises to be even better. This version has a velocity-style deck, deep juice well and improved airflow options. If you like to build your own coils you’ll love the nice big build deck.

Wotofo Troll V2 Testing and Performance

It’s no secret that I love RDAs. I started preferring RDAs over tanks because I hate the leaking that goes with tanks more often than not. I tested this RDA with a couple different builds and it performs really well.

It has massive airflow holes, which is good for vapor production, but a little too much for me personally. I closed them down about halfway and still, it worked like a dream. Big clouds of vapor and no burning or dry hits.

 

Build quality and design

The Troll V2 RDA is constructed from 304 stainless steel and is 24mm tall by 22mm wide. The airflow control for this device has two options: one is horizontal and the other is slanted. You can change the airflow by turning the top cap in either direction.

It has a velocity-style, two post deck with large holes for leads to accommodate thicker wires as in Clapton and parallel builds.

Build Deck

Rather than having the familiar 3 or 4 post design, it has just two posts on a velocity-style deck. The juice well is very deep so you don’t have to worry about keeping your wicks shorter, there is plenty of room on this deck to build on.

The post holes are large enough to fit thicker wires and the grub screws fit nice and tight. There is an included tool to help you tighten them once you have your build in place. The only downside to this deck is that there is no option for a single coil build.

Well Capacity

The juice well for this RDA is 10mm deep. It holds a lot of juice and is wicks it quite well. I like to keep my wicks a bit long and fill up all the empty space with cotton so I can fill it more and drip less often. I can fit roughly 2 mils of juice on dry cotton this way. It evens out to about 1 ½ mils once the cotton has absorbed the juice for a second or third time.

 

Durability/Reliability

It is very durable but using the black version that I got, it did get a little scraped on the inside from removing and replacing the cap a few ties. The O-rings make for a tight fit and I found that putting a little juice on them before replacing the cap helps make it easier to pull off the next time.

 

Ease of Use

It is very simple to use once you have your build and wicks in place. Just drip the juice onto your cotton until saturated and vape. That is all there is to it. Placing your build is the hardest part of the whole thing.

 

Vaping Experience

I like the vapor production of this RDA. The airflow is a little too wide-open for me, but if you like an airy draw, you’ll love it. Even closed down half-way the clouds were still huge by my standards. I had no issues with it whatsoever. I put in my build, wicked it, juiced it and vaped away. Really easy to use.

 

Leaking

I did not experience any issues with leaking at all. Everything fits together very snugly so there is no leaking around the base. The only leaking that might occur is if there is a lot of juice in the well and you lay it down on its side since the airflow holes are closer to the top.

 

Cloud

Cloud production on the Troll V2 is great. Big, fluffy clouds of vapor with wide-open airflow. I’m not a person with a lot of lung capacity, but if you are you could easily fog up the room. I keep mine open halfway and it still produces a lot of vapor.

 

Flavor

I used a black cherry-flavored e-liquid with this RDA and the flavor was right on point. The deep, richness and sweetness of the black cherry came through very well.

What We Liked

+ Large build deck
+ Deep juice well
+ Easy to build on
+ Wide-bore drip tips

What We Didn't

- I personally think the airflow holes are a little too big, but that is part of what makes it work so well. This won’t be a con for some.

 

Value

This RDA is priced between $16.95 and $20.95, depending on the retailers you shop with. This is a well-performing device for the price and it is definitely a good deal for less than $25.

 

Final Verdict

If you’re a fan of RDAs and velocity-style build decks, I definitely recommend you to get this one. The deck is easy to build on and there is plenty of room for wicking without having to stuff them into the base. And it vapes great like all the best RDAs that have come along so far. And the price is great for such a well-performing device.

VaporFi Catch Ya Latte E-liquid Review

Who doesn’t love a sweet coffee vape in the morning with their blueberry muffin? This flavor from VaporFi is called Catch Ya Latte and includes the flavors of Espresso, caramel, a little hazelnut, and some steamed milk for the perfect blend of sweetness and smooth flavor. If you're a coffee lover this might be just what you need to start your day with a vape. Read on to find out more and to see if it might be something you may like to try.

About VaporFi E-liquids

VaporFi has been producing high-quality vapor products since 2015. They make all their own e-liquids and have several specialty flavors. Their Grand Reserve line debut includes 6 flavors in total and each one is delicious and decadent.Sweet flavors that let you indulge your sweet tooth without the extra calories.

This would be great for anyone who likes drinking coffee in the evening but had to stop due to the caffeine keeping you awake later. This would be a perfect switch for you. You get the flavor of coffee without the caffeine to interfere with your sleep.

My Experience With Catch Ya Latte

This is really a good morning vape when you have time to sit and lounge. I opened up this bottle and sat on my porch for a vape. It was a nice day and I was in no hurry to do anything but taste this juice. This is how I like to start every day. A hot cup of coffee and a nice flavored e-liquid for my morning vape.

I am a big coffee lover so this one was right up my alley and I couldn’t wait to try it out. I have to say that this is one of those flavors that taste better at higher wattages because of the composition of the flavors. I decided since I had so many flavors in my e-liquid that I would keep my coffee plain and simple so as not to "muddle" the flavors of the two. It's very easy to confuse your taste buds with two coffee flavors at the same time.

The caramel flavor is the strongest in terms of taste. The others come in at the end to round things out. But I found that if I turn up the wattage a bit I get a little less caramel and a little more coffee and hazelnut. I liked this version because I could taste more of the other flavors and the caramel wasn’t so pronounced. It is between 70 and 75W that the caramel flavor smooths out and the others blend in for a nice rich swirl of hazelnut and espresso w/steamed milk.

Vape Flavor

The most prominent flavor is caramel at the beginning. On the exhale I’m getting the coffee and steamed milk with a slight hazelnut there at the end. It’s really nice and delicious. The flavors all blend nicely together for a smooth coffee vape that leaves a nice taste in your mouth. It's a very smooth flavor, slightly sweet from the caramel and comes together nicely at the end. Overall , it's very delicious.

Vape Cloud

The vapor production from Catch Ya Latte is pretty good. I choose formulations with a higher VG content since I use RDAs most of the time and at Max VG, the cloud production is really good. The vapor produces is thick and fills up a room pretty quick if you're chain vaping.

I switched over to my Aspire Cleito 120 tank to see how the vapor production is with a tank and it is very similar, slightly less vapor but the same quality and thickness. My atomizer coils were reading at 0.16 ohms  and the wattage was set at 85W. It works well in both tanks and RDAs. It's just a really good vape. You have to try out other settings to see how it affects the flavor. Some e-liquids taste better with more heat (higher wattages) and some flavors completely disappear, so it is important to start out low and increase a little at a time until you find your preferred vape settings.

I like to start out with an RDA first so I get a really good taste of the juice itself and then switch over to a tank and see if the flavor changes any with different settings. A point to remember is to always increase your wattage slowly so as not to burn your coils or your e-liquid because then it will just taste bad.

What We Liked

+ Smooth, rich flavor
+ True to description
+ Good vapor production
+ A great value for the money

What We Didn't

- Not really anything to dislike

Value

The 60 ml bottle size, which is what I have been seeing on many websites that sell this product, is selling for $25.99 and it's a great value for such a big bottle. Premium e-liquids of this size usually go for about the same or just a little more. This is really a nice tasting juice and I would buy it again. It comes in a big bottle in nicotine strengths from 0mg to 18mg. So no matter what type of atomizer you use there is a formulation that will work for you.

Final Verdict

I really like this flavor because it has all the flavors I love in a good coffee blend. The rich espresso, sweet caramel, and creamy milk all come together in a delicious blend that I simply love. For a coffee vape it is spot on for flavor. The flavor fits the description perfectly. I think if you love coffee or just coffee type flavors, this could easily become your new favorite. I would recommend it to coffee lovers and anyone who likes slight sweet, rich flavors in a perfectly combined ratio.

Digiflavor Pharaoh Mini RTA

The Digiflavor Pharaoh Mini RTA is the product of a collaboration between Digiflavor and YouTube personality Rip Trippers. It has all the essentials of similar RTAs but with a few added options and a lot of accessories.

Product Name + Testing and Performance

I have had this RTA for about two weeks now and I am really liking how it performs. I took a little longer with it because I had some issues with assembling the pieces when changing the tank over to the 5 mil version. I practiced with it a few times and now I love it. Here are some specs for it and a breakdown on how it performed during the testing.

Build quality and design

This TRA is constructed from 304 quality stainless steel and is very sturdy in my opinion. It has that heavy feel to it and the finish on it keeps it from collecting fingerprints and smudges. It has a sandblasted finish so it’s smooth but not shiny. I also happen to love the Ulrem drip tip that comes with it. It's very comfortable and does not get hot ever.

The barrel does seem a little too big like it is crowded in the tank. Even with the 5 mil tank, it doesn’t feel like you’re really getting 5 mils in there. It doesn’t seem that big in the smaller version, maybe because the shorter tank is more rounded and not so tall. This is just my observation though, it doesn’t change how it vapes at all.

Build Deck

The deck is really easy to build on. The clamps are spring-loaded so once you have your coil built, you just slide the lead under and tighten down the screws. There is a wide space there for large builds or thick wires.

There are side channels for the wicks. After trimming your wicks tuck the cotton into the side slots loosely. You don’t want to pack it tightly because you can get dry hits if the cotton doesn’t get saturated enough.

A trick I learned from another builder is to trim one side of the wicks diagonally so they fit, but it’s not compacted with cotton. This method worked perfectly for me.

Tank Capacity

I like large tanks so I really like the inclusion of the bigger glass tank. I like to fill up once a day and vape all day long so this is a plus for me. The smaller tank is included for those who have the compliance issues for 2 mils only.

Durability/Reliability

If you remove the glass tank and look just at the metal construction, this tank is very durable. I haven’t had the occasion to drop it yet but I think if I did it would survive with no damage.

Ease of Use

As far as building on it, filling it, and vaping on it, this is really easy to use. Once you get past the assembly issues for the different tank sizes, it is a breeze to use. This is fast becoming one of my favorite atomizers.

Vaping Experience

Using the Pharaoh has been very enjoyable for me. At first, I wasn’t so sure about it because of all the parts and pieces to change it. I was a little intimidated to try it because it all seemed so complicated, but once I sat down with it and took it apart and reassembled it a few times I felt more confident with it. Once I started vaping on it though, I couldn’t put it down.

Filling

I love the top-fill design because it is so easy to open the cap and fill the tank. The juice ports are large so if you have large bottle tips they will easily fit in there. I have just poured juice from a medicine cup because the bottle tip was too small and took forever to fill the tank. The ports are wide enough to pour in without dripping or overflowing as some do.

Leaking

I haven’t really had any issues with leaking. It does have the juice flow control, so if you want to top off your juice when it’s about halfway you will need to remember to close of the juice flow before opening the top. If you wait until it is closer to being empty then there is no worry of leaking if you don’t close them off. It is only when there is still juice in the tank because of the vacuum seal.

Cloud

The vapor production from this RTA is good as well. It’s a toss-up to me about whether it has better flavor or vapor, it does both really well. I get a lot of vapor and the clouds are thick and fluffy. For those cloud chasers, you will definitely love this one, and if you go more for flavor then it has that covered as well.

Flavor

The Pharaoh mini has some pretty great flavor. I don’t know if it is the build I have in it or the smooth conical dome-shape at the top, but whatever it produces the best flavor I have had from an RTA so far. I tested this using a sweet and sour blue-raspberry and I could taste each one of the notes in the juice perfectly. I think I like this even more than my Griffin for flavor.

What We Liked

+ Juice flow control
+ Many options for drip tips
+ Top-fill design with large juice ports
+ Compatible with hybrid devices
+ Locking screw keeps tank firmly in place

What We Didn't

- Chamber takes up a lot of room in the tank

Value

This RTA is priced at $25 - $30 through most online retailers. The price is really good for everything you get with this tank. So many options and so many accessories make this a great value for the money spent. I have spent $30 on tanks that come with a lot less and no options for a bigger tank size. This is one of our top rated RTA tanks available today. If you want to get all the info on the latest and greatest RDA's or RTA's, check out License to Vape's RTA reviews here.

Final Verdict

This is a great tank overall, the ability to change from a 2 mil tank to a 5 mil tank, and the easy to build on deck make this a steal at less than $35. For all of these options, I would expect to pay more, but I like the fact that the price is affordable for anyone’s budget. There is also supposed to be a velocity-style deck, and postless style deck coming out in the near future. The inclusion of other deck options will increase its value even more.

When it comes to getting the best RDA's, RTA's and Tanks, License to Vape provides reviews on some of the top rated RDAs, RTAs and sub ohm tanks available.

Tips for First-Time Vapers

Congratulations, you have just joined the vaping community and bought your first vape device. Now what? Often when new vapers start out they have no idea where to begin or how to even use their device properly.

There is a bit of a learning curve to vaping, especially if you are just getting off cigarettes. It is pretty easy once you get used to the difference between vaping and smoking, and where you are allowed to vape (and where you can’t). We have included some general tips for first-time vapers on how to use and charge their device for the first time.

To Be a Responsible Vaper You Need to:

Know the Laws in Your State

State laws differ from one state to another. It is best to find out what the regulations are in your state before you start vaping. Certain states have pending anti-vaping legislation or legislation that has already passed. You can find that out by looking at the License to Vape Vaping State Laws page.

Know Where Vaping is Permitted

Most states allow vaping in the same areas where smoking is permitted (again, check your state laws). Several states have a version of the “Clean Air Act” and will not allow you to vape at any indoor sporting event or in enclosed areas like restaurants and bars. You also cannot vape within so many feet of federal buildings or on school property.

Follow the Rules

To be a responsible vaper means following the rules and setting a good example. If you vape during work hours, do so only in designated smoking areas and on your breaks.

Don’t block the entrance to stores blowing big clouds of vapor. Vaping is still new to some people and they are a little intimidated by it, plus you don’t want to give the impression that you are not being respectful of their right not to breathe in your vape cloud.

Practice Personal Safety

If you vape while out and about, be sure to turn the device off when finished.  5 clicks turns your device off and it is then safe to put in your pocket or purse while you go about your day. A device that is turned off cannot activate and poses no danger to you or anyone else.

Some Things to Know for a First-Time Vape:

1. How to Activate Your Device

If you have purchased a vape pen, then turning the device on is as simple as (5) clicks to turn it on and off. When you click the power button 5 times the button will blink for a few seconds and that tells you it is ready to use. It will also blink a different color light when the battery is getting low to let you know it’s time to charge.

For a cig-a-like device, there may be a power button (manual) or no power button (automatic). If you have a button just press while inhaling. If no button, then it is activated by inhaling alone.

2. Make Sure it is Charged

You will need to charge the device before vaping. Attach the charging cable to the micro USB port on the device and wait until it is fully charged. Individual devices vary, but there should be a “battery indicator light” on the device or on the charging piece that lets you know when the charging cycle has completed.

3. How to Set the Wattage/Voltage

Some devices may have a LED screen with buttons to set the wattage or a knob at the bottom to adjust the voltage. The best rule of thumb is to set the wattage low to start and increase it a little at a time until it is where you like it.

You should know the wattage recommendations for your coil (it is sometimes written on the coil head) or may be listed on the back of the box your device came in. Start a little lower than the recommended wattage and go up slowly until you find the “sweet spot” or where it works best for you.

If your device uses volts like a Twist, the lowest setting is 3.2 and goes up to 4.8. Depending on your vape tank coil head, you can turn it to 3.9 or 4.2 on most standard resistance coils (2.4 - 3.0) and a little higher for lower resistance coils (1.5 - 2.0). Sub-ohm coils are anything under 1.0 ohms. Most beginner devices that use sub-ohm coils are between 0.5 and 0.8 and can be vaped at 30 - 50W.

These are guidelines only, just do what works best for you, even if it is lower than what is stated on the coil. Nobody ever burned a coil from wattage that was set too low. You just won’t get much vapor if it is too low. Keep trying until it is just right.

4. Fill with E-liquid

Before your first vape, you will need to make sure you have e-liquid in your tank. Once filled, make sure not to vape it (the e-liquid) all the way to the bottom of the tank. If the tank is too low you could get dry hits or burn your coil because there is not enough e-liquid to keep it wet. Dry hits are bad and may burn your throat and make you cough terribly. As a general rule of thumb, always top off your tank when it gets below the midline. That way you never have to worry about dry hits.

5. The Draw on an E-cigarette or Vape Pen is Different Than Smoking

With a cigarette, you take short draws and then exhale the smoke through your mouth. When drawing on an electronic cigarette or vape pen you do just the opposite. The draw should be long and slow to get a good amount of vapor in your mouth and then inhale it into your lungs.

Mouth-to-lung hits as they are called should be done slowly to the count of “5” instead of a quick pull. This is the proper technique for drawing on an e-cigarette. If you don’t get much vapor the first few tries just keep practicing your technique. A common problem new vapers experience is not getting much vapor initially because their draw is wrong.

How Long is “a Vape?”

If you were a smoker you were finished when you got to the end of your cigarette. But vaping is different from smoking and it may be hard to know when to stop. There is no right or wrong answer, it just depends on how long it takes for you to be satisfied. Your body absorbs the nicotine from vapor differently and it may take several minutes to realize that you no longer feel the need for nicotine. That is when you know you’re finished. Just vape until the urge goes away and start again when it returns.

Does Vaping Cause Cancer?

No matter where you look these days there are dozens of these “Vaping Causes Cancer” and “May Cause DNA mutations” stories plastered all over the Internet. Why?  Because headlines like these get attention and people tend to respond more to emotional stimuli.

All of these stories in the headlines just repeat what the study said but do not give statistics and even agree that because the subjects were mice and human cells grown in a lab, there is no way to know how these results would be compared to tests performed on human vapers.

Also, because there have been no human tests on people who vape electronic cigarettes there is nothing to compare the data to. It wouldn’t be that hard to get a test group of 100 vapers who have been vaping the last 5 - 10 years and have not smoked cigarettes. A control group such as this could have more defined results. The claims being made about risks of cancer, heart disease, and lung damage would be dispelled pretty quickly. 

Headlines Used as Clickbait

The media headlines talking about cancer risks from vaping just repeat what similar articles say and are meant to get people to click them for ad revenue. It is a fear-based tactic that works, so they continue to use it. The articles they are quoting is scientific reports that suggest it but never provide links to the actual research where you can go and read it yourself. The titles give the impression that there is new "evidence" or "proof" but it is all just to get people to click that link. 

And towards the end of the article, they admit that vaping is less harmful than smoking due to the absence of the carcinogens in cigarette smoke. They like to compare nicotine and tobacco as being the culprits but nicotine is not only sourced from tobacco but from many other substances as well.

Sources of Nicotine Other Than Tobacco

For instance, did you know that certain vegetables have nicotine in them? Tomatoes, eggplant, potatoes, peppers, and cauliflower all contain small amounts of nicotine.  Not all sources of nicotine come from tobacco.

Despite the fact that these vegetables contain nicotine, nobody ever says you shouldn't eat eggplant or potatoes. But then again, nicotine does not cause cancer, tar is what causes cancer and the chemical toxins in the burning tobacco and paper. 

The nicotine you purchase from the vape shop and from online supplies does not contain tobacco at all. There is no tobacco is nicotine liquid, just nicotine and the diluents PG/VG and flavoring. More or less, nicotine is not the bad guy here. It has gotten a bad reputation and anti-vaping groups like to blame everything on nicotine due to its use as an addictive factor in cigarette smoking.

Even the American Cancer Society has posted their official position on vaping as “being less harmful than smoking, but that the long-term effects are unknown”. 

Quotes from Public Health England on The Safety of Vaping

"There is much public misunderstanding about nicotine (less than 10% of adults understand that most of the harms to health from smoking are not caused by nicotine)."

"It would be tragic if thousands of smokers who could quit with the help of an e-cigarette are being put off due to false fears about their safety."

So despite all the media scare tactics they still concede that vaping is less harmful than smoking and that nicotine does not cause cancer.  To answer the burning question, “Does vaping cause cancer?” The answer is no. There has been no published scientific data to prove those claims.

A report published by the American Council on Science and Health called Nicotine and Health, written by Dr. Murray Laugesen states, “Electronic cigarette vapor appears chemically incapable of causing cancer as cigarette smoke has done. E-cigarette vapor contains toxicants concentrations averaging less than one percent of the concentrations in tobacco cigarette smoke.” You can get all the best vape guide info you need from License to Vape here.

Kanger Subvod Vape Pen Review

The ever-popular vape pen is making a comeback. The Kanger Subvod is a vape pen with a sub-ohm tank that was designed with beginning vapers in mind. It is easy to use and great for those wanting to quit cigarettes.

Kanger Subvod Testing and Performance

The Kangertech name has long been associated with high-quality vape products. The Subvod is a combination vape pen and tube mod with a sub-ohm tank that pushes out clouds like the more technologically advanced sub-ohm tanks.

This little device performs more along the lines of a mod rather than a vape pen.

It has the long tube body with built-in 1300mah battery and sports a sub-ohm tank with adjustable airflow and uses Kanger SSOC coils. I got this device about a week ago and so far it has been performing really well and I am in love with it already. Here is some information on the device and an overview of the kit contents.

Build quality and Design

I really like the look of this vape pen. It resembles a tube mod and the sub ohm tank works great with the 0.5-ohm coils. You can use other resistances in this tank and the battery will self-adjust the wattage to the coil resistance automatically. You could go higher resistance but the device will not power on at less than 0.4 ohms.

I ordered the pink one and it came in a nice little box with a matching pink charging cable.

Durability/Reliability

This device is pretty sturdy, I haven’t had any accidents with it but if I did it does come with a spare glass tank just in case. It feels like a well-made device and Kangertech is a quality manufacturer of vapor products.

Ease of Use

It is easy to use and easy to charge as well. It is a simple device so you just plug the charging cable into the port on the bottom of the battery and you can vape while it’s charging (pass-through).

You never have to worry about the battery going dead as long as you have a charger with you. You can charge it with your laptop or by an outlet with a wall adapter. The battery charges in 2 - 3 hours and will last the average vaper most of the day.

Vaping Experience

I have been enjoying this vape pen very much. I wish I would have had something like this when I first got started vaping. This would have been perfect for me back then. Since I like this device so much I have recommended it to a couple of friends who want to start vaping.

It has good flavor and makes quite a bit of vapor for a small device. I am really loving it.

This is one device that I will keep in my collection of vape gear for running errands and trips around town because it requires no adjusting of any kind. I just fill it and it’s ready to go.

Filling

Filling the tank is super easy with the top-fill design. Simply unscrew the very top ring (careful not to turn the glass at the same time) and remove to find the large juice slots and the center ring. The fill holes are large enough to fit most bottle tops. Fill and replace the top and you’re ready to vape again.

Leaking

I have not had any problems with leaking, even when laying the device down on the desk for charging. It seems to be an airtight system with no leaks or gurgling.

Cloud

The Toptank Nano produces quite an impressive amount of vapor for just using a 0.5-ohm coil. It’s a great little tank that produces vapor on par with some of the more advanced tanks on the market. The wide open air slots on the bottom create good airflow to the coils and the stainless steel coils are some of the best I have used so far. I wasn’t expecting this set up to produce the amount of vapor that it does. It performs very well and is a well-made device.

Flavor

This tank uses the SSOC coils which means stainless steel and organic cotton wicking. They produce really good flavor in this device. The taste of the juice comes through and the increased airflow produces good vapor as well.

What We Liked

+ Easy to use
+ Top-fill tank
+ Large fill ports
+ Great Performance
+ Ability to use other drip tips

What We Didn't

- Don’t like the charging port on the bottom, but can vape while charging (not really a con)

Value

I love how affordable this vape pen is.

I have seen it advertised on different websites for $20 - $29 dollars. This is a great device for under $30. And the replacement coils come in packs of 5 for around $12 and they are compatible with the Kanger Subtank, Nebox, and Toptank Mini as well making it an even better value.

Final Verdict

The Kanger Subvod is perfect for new vapers just getting started because it is compact and stylish, and affordably priced at less than $30 for a complete kit.

The SSOC coil heads come in 0.5, 1.5, and 1.2 resistances for versatility in your vaping experience.

I recommend this device to anyone wanting something simple and easy to use to get started vaping or as a backup device to add to their collection. It might be an eliquid vape pen geared towards new vapers but experienced vapers who like simple devices will love it as well. You can get all the latest vape pen reviews from License to Vape here.
