Vaping Diaries #170: Goodejuice Review II

Posted on January 13th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Goodejuice’s House Brewed line of e-liquids is a must-try for vapers looking for an authentic tobacco experience. All of these juices are made with naturally-extracted tobaccos. The company’s extraction style results in a quality that some describe as deliciously musty or funky. Goodejuice’s Patriot Tobacco, Natural Perique, and Vita Bella all have that distinct funk, to varying degrees — a taste that I find rather delicious. While I always recommend Goodejuice’s House Brewed line to vapers looking for a true tobacco experience, the juices are different enough from … continued

Vaping Diaries #168: Bay City Vapor SurfRider Review

Posted on January 11th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. 2 comments

Bay City Vapor is a relatively new mod maker out of Seal Beach, CA. The company started getting attention in Fall 2013 for its then upcoming SurfRider and XXIX mods. Both are relatively inexpensive and have innovative features. The SurfRider is available in C464 naval brass and 316 stainless steel. It costs $140 for the single-tube version, $190 for all three stainless steel tubes (18350, 18490, 18650), and $200 for all three brass tubes. For the last few weeks, I’ve been vaping on a SurfRider and been quite pleased with … continued

Vaping Diaries #167: Aqua Atomizer Review (UVO System)

Posted on January 6th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

The Aqua by Footoon from UVO System has been one of the hottest atomizers for the last few months. This bottom-coil silica atomizer is often touted as a “Kayfun killer.” I completely disagree with that label, but have become extremely fond of the Aqua atomizer. The Kayfun 3.1 is indisputably one of the finest atomizers on the market today. After using the Aqua atomizer for several months (special thanks to The Vape Source for the hookup), I believe that it’s just as excellent, but offers a very different vape. It’s … continued

Vaping Diaries #164: Ahlusion Review VII

Posted on December 30th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Here’s a review of three juices from my favorite e-liquid company, Ahlusion. This time around, I cover a trio of juices that will appeal to vapers with a sweet tooth and to tobacco lovers. Gold Member is a relatively new addition to Ahlusion’s lineup, giving the company a salted-caramel offering. Vecchio Blend is a delicious vanilla tobacco. Last, it Gold Rising, which is a curious juice with an unusual quality that some vapers will love and some vapers will hate.

Gold Member: Out of the mailbox, this … continued

Vaping Diaries #163: Vape Syndicate Guardian Review

Posted on December 28th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

If you’re looking for a luxury vaping device that’s made in America then the Vape Syndicate Guardian should be on your short list. Constructed primarily from titanium — an expensive metal that’s crazy strong and ridiculously light — the Vape Syndicate Guardian is a hybrid mod that comes with several accessories. While many titanium mods cost $400 for the mod alone, the Guardian comes with a Genesis-style atomizer, two tubes (18650 and 18500), and a 510 cap for when you don’t want to go hybrid. While the $475 price is … continued

Vaping Diaries #162: Envision Vapor Glass Drip Tip Review

Posted on December 28th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Envision Vapor offers handblown glass drip tips that are made in the USA. The tips are beautiful, unique, and well made. They’re made from borosilicate glass, which many vapers know from Corning’s Pyrex brand. While some vapers are wary of glass drip tips, there are some very good reasons to consider them over plastic and metal ones. Before I get into those reasons, I want to make it clear that Envision Vapor’s glass drip tips are my favorite. I’ve been using several of these tips for the last few months … continued

Vaping Diaries #157: Vapour Art GP Paps X Review

Posted on December 4th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

It’s hard to write a review of the Vapour Art GP Paps X without sounding like a bootlicker. There are just so many extraordinary aspects of the mod that it’s easy to spend hundreds of words lavishing it with praise. While I’m a fan of Vapour Art products, I can also objectively say that the GP Paps X easily one of the best mods on the market today.

Build Quality and Construction: The GP Paps X is made from 316 stainless steel. This type of steel is heavier and … continued

Vaping Diaries #154: El Kapitan v2 Review (Wu Tang House of Mods)

Posted on November 25th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

The copper-body El Kapitan v2 is the latest mechanical mod from the excellent Wu Tang House of Mods. The Filipino mod maker is known for making beautiful mechs that are available for fairly reasonable prices (when bought directly from Wu Tang). Last month I reviewed the stainless steel El Kapitan 1.5 and was very, very impressed. With its gorgeous and highly-conductive copper body, I like the El Kapitan v2 even more.

Build Quality and Construction: The main tube of the El Kapitan v2 is made from copper, which … continued
