Here’s a review of three of the most popular flavors from Vape Dudes: Buttery Nipple, Mocha Java Drizzle, and Orange Cream. Vape Dudes’ e-liquids are made-to-order and come in plastic drip-tip bottles. This is a great company for new vapers or people looking to experiment with flavors, since the company offers a 40-percent discount to new customers. As for these particular flavors, I totally see why two of them are popular, but was disappointed in one. Here’s the breakdown.

For the last few months, I’ve been using a pair of tanks from Cirrus Vapes — one polycarbonate tank and one pyrex tank. Both are made in the USA, feature caps and tips made from aircraft aluminum, come with a 90-day warranty, and are among the best-looking tanks I’ve seen. The construction and finish of these babies are top notch. While both tanks are undeniably high-quality products, I found one to be on the expensive side and the other to be inline with the competition.
The polycarbonate tank I used … more
Following my review of The Dark Knight Returns Part I are (you guessed it) random thoughts on The Dark Knight Returns Part 2. Like the first installment, the movie does a fine job of retelling Frank Miller’s grim and gritty story. And like the first installment, the art is much cleaner than the source material and isn’t nearly as distinct, but is probably more appealing to mainstream viewers. With a run time of 72 minutes and 30 seconds, I was very much satisfied with the conclusion of the series, … more
Raina and I checked out three more e-liquids from Ahlusion. This time around we went for a beverage theme, choosing Boba Tea, Mimosa Cocktail, and W&A Sasparilla. Boba Tea is based on the popular (for Asians, anyway) dessert beverage from Taiwan, Mimosa Cocktail is a lovely champagne and fruit mix, and W&A Sasparilla is a really unique juice that almost tastes like an adult root beer. As in our first Ahlusion review, we were impressed by the quality of the e-liquids and how carefully they’re … more
When I first heard about the Ovale USA eVic, I was immediately intrigued. As a longtime tech writer, I was fascinated by the idea of a vaping device with upgradeable firmware. Like computers, consoles, and mobile phones I’ve reviewed, the eVic has the potential to get better and better with each firmware update. After using the device for the last month, the eVic has shown its potential. Initially, I found it to be middling, but after a firmware update the experience was much, much better. This is one of … more
Raina and I checked out three e-liquids from Fuzion Vapor: Magnum PI, Hadouken, and Milli Vanilli. Fuzion is a creative e-juice company that makes some really unique blends and uses creative names (as you can tell). Magnum PI is a tropical fruit medley with hints of cream and menthol. The Street Fighter-inspired Hadouken is a lemon-lime juice with a strong menthol kick (fireball?). Lastly, Milli Vanilli is a watermelon-based juice that tries to make sure that you won’t “blame it on the rain.”
These juices are relatively … more
Raina and I checked out three e-liquids from E-Juice Plus: Menthol, Coffee, and Butterscotch. These juices are available for the relatively low price of $20 for 60ml. For an additional $5, you can add the unique option of ganoderma extract. Ganoderma is a mushroom used in Eastern and alternative medicine. It is believed to have many health benefits.
Now, I’m not a doctor (nor do I play one on TV), so I can’t say whether or not vaping ganoderma will improve your health. What I can say is … more
The Alt Smoke Silver Bullet is one of the most popular mods on the market and its popularity is totally deserved. It’s a great performer, the build quality is outstanding, it looks great, and it has fantastic flexibility when used with an Evolv Kick. Going into this review, I expected to like the Silver Bullet a lot. I ended up loving it and it has become one of my favorite vaping devices. Here’s the breakdown.
What’s In the Kit: The barebones Silver Bullet kit costs $84.99 and comes … more
Raina and I checked out three e-liquids from Backwoods Brew — Peach, Honey Flue Tobacco, and Root Beer. One was too sweet for our tastes, one had a great blend of sweetness and tobacco that was great for an all-day vape, and one was a fantastic e-juice with lots of complexity. Backwoods Brew’s packaging is pretty standard — plastic dripper bottles enclosed in a padded envelope — but the juice is definitely high-quality. Here’s a breakdown of the three flavors followed by steeping notes.
Peach: This … more
Peter Jackson is back with another movie about a bunch of guys walking from point A to point B. This time around it’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the precursor to The Lord of the Rings. Some familiar characters and locations are back, along with the amazing special effects and costumes that Jackson is known for. However, the film gets a whole new look thanks to 48p (HFR 3D). While the movie is highly enjoyable on its own, some aspects are enhanced by 48p while several … more
