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

Vaping Diaries #153: EHPro Nzonic Clone Review

Posted on November 23rd, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

A few months ago I reviewed EHPro’s EA Mod and was very, very impressed. With that in mind, I was curious to see if the EHPro Nzonic clone would offer a similar combination of strong performance and good construction quality at an affordable price. In a nutshell, it does not. While the EHPro Nzonic clone is a good product, there are other clones on the market that offer a better vaping experience at a similar price.

What’s in the Kit: The EHPro Nzonic clone comes with the mod, two … continued

Vaping Diaries #152: Innokin iTaste VTR Review

Posted on November 23rd, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. 8 comments

The Innokin iTaste VTR is a variable-voltage/variable-wattage box mod with a unique form factor. Positioned as the company’s premium box mod — with the iTaste MVP 2 positioned as the affordable model — the iTaste VTR has all the features vapers want from a VV/VW device. Its performance is accurate, the wattage and voltage ranges are broad, it can check resistance (ohms), and the build quality is tops. To me, this is the best product Innokin has ever released, but there’s a big reason to disagree with my opinion — … continued

Vaping Diaries #149: Madz Modz Nzonic v4 Review

Posted on November 2nd, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. 1 Comment

Madz Modz is a Filipino mechanical-mod maker that’s best known for its Nzonic series. The latest model of the popular telescoping mod is the Nzonic v4. In addition to sporting a gorgeous media-blasted finish, the mod has a few under-the-hood changes that improve its performance. In short, the Nzonic v4 takes this popular series of mechs to new heights.

Build Quality and Construction: Madz Modz did a great job with the build quality and construction of the Nzonic v4. The threads are smooth and the materials are top notch. … continued

Vaping Diaries #132: Majestic Vapors Review

Posted on October 18th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

As a comic-book fanboy and Star Wars nerd, I was really looking forward to trying some of Majestic Vapors’ “Geek Line” of e-liquids. I recently vaped Majestic Vapors’ Vader’s Vengeance, Fant4stic Four, and Lantern’s Light. Before I get to the flavor breakdowns, let’s chat about the company for a bit.

Majestic Vapors is a retail shop in the Niagara Falls area. The company offers a wide variety of juices — some straightforward blends and some interesting mixes. The Geek Line uses playful references to comics, movies, videogames, … continued

Vaping Diaries #131: The Vape Tree Review

Posted on October 17th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. 2 comments

The Vape Tree is a relatively new e-liquid company that focuses on complex juices that use several ingredients. I recently vaped three of the company’s e-liquids: Pinoy Punch, Banyan Tree, and Royal Tobacco. I liked one of them and loved two. The two Vape Tree e-liquids I loved were unique and complex — very distinct blends that stand out. The one I loved the most featured one of my favorite fruits — a fruit that’s very uncommon in the vaping world. I definitely recommend giving the two … continued

Vaping Diaries #130: Kebo Russian Atomizer Review

Posted on October 16th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

The Kebo Russian is a bottom-coil silica atomizer that offers fantastic flavor and high capacity. It’s a 1:1 copy of the Svoe Mesto Kayfun 3.1, which many vapers love for its strong performance. While other companies have tried to mimic the Kayfun 3.1, they’ve mostly offered an inferior experience. The Kebo Russian offers the same outstanding performance as the product it’s based on, but for a much lower price.

What’s in the Kit: The Kebo Russian comes with the atomizer, a clear tank, a stainless steel tank, a 510 … continued

Vaping Diaries #129: Naturally-Extracted-Tobacco.com Review

Posted on October 14th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. 5 comments

Earlier this year, Naturally-Extracted-Tobacco.com opened for business. As a huge fan of NET e-liquids, I was really excited to see what this vendor brought to the table (or atomizer, more accurately). When I learned about the company’s different extraction and bottling options (detailed in Vaping Diaries #96), I was even more excited. After vaping the company’s Bombay, Chris’ Blend, and Coventry e-liquids, I’m pleased to say that Naturally-Extracted-Tobacco.com is a very good choice for tobacco fans, with the potential to be a great one.

In broad terms, … continued

Vaping Diaries #128: El Kapitan 1.5 Review

Posted on October 7th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

The El Kapitan 1.5 is an updated version of a beautiful mechanical mod from the Philippines. Made by Wu Tang House of Mods, the El Kapitan 1.5 features distinct looks and great performance. For those of you not familiar with Wu Tang House of Mods, it’s highly regarded by enthusiast vapers, but isn’t as well known (to American vapers, anyway) as other Filipino vaping companies like Grand Vapor and VapeHead Origins. With products like the El Kapitan 1.5, Wu Tang’s reputation will burgeon. It’s an attractive vaping device that’s … continued
