In a short amount of time, VLS has established a strong reputation in the vaping business. Known for products that mix high quality and great value, VLS is a favorite among many vapers. As a fan of the company’s Vulcan atomizer, I was looking forward to checking out the latest VLS products at ECC 2014. The Ragnarok mechanical mod was getting a lot of attention at the show. This all-copper mech looks great and has an MSRP of $99. VLS had a pair of new Vulcan products too. The … continued
Meeting Vigilante Juice Co co-founders Russ Scarbrough and Ashley West was a fantastic accident at ECC 2014. You see, I had just finished filming an interview with Lost Arts Liquids and noticed Ellen from Ragtime Vapor chatting with the Vigilante Juice Co crew. I have a ton of respect for Ellen (and she may or may not be my secret vaping crush), so I stopped by to say hello. It was a lovely surprise to learn that Vigilante Juice Co is run by cool people that make e-liquid that’s totally … continued
Last time I spoke with Illuminati Vapor owner Erik Todorovich, he teased some big plans the company had in regards to getting into the collectibles space. At ECC 2014, he unveiled those plans. Illuminati Vapor has a new mascot named Eyezzak. In the future, special bottles of Illuminati Vapor e-liquids will be released with an Eyezzak action figure. The juice will come in 15ml or 30ml bottles that will be housed inside Eyezzak.
In other company news, Illuminati rereleased Money. This e-liquid is similar to the strawberry shortcake ice cream … continued
Cloud Kicker Society is the premiere apparel and lifestyle brand in vaping. If you go to a vaping event in California (of which there are like five every weekend), chances are you’ll see several people rocking Cloud Kicker Society “Social Club” t-shirts. The company makes awesome shirts, hoodies, bandanas, and, more that revolve around the vaping lifestyle, but it’s also branching out to different areas of the business. At ECC 2014, I caught up with Cloud Kicker Society founders Rendy Ichsan and Erik Nagashima to learn more about the company … continued
Poet Electronic Nectar is one of my favorite e-liquid companies in the vaping business. The company makes complex and layered e-liquids that I find absolutely delightful. I’m a huge fan of the way the company mixes heavy and light flavors to create intricate vaping blends. With all of that in mind, meeting up with Poet Electronic Nectar CEO Randy Freer was a top priority for me at ECC 2014. In addition to running a great American vaping company and creating some delicious e-liquids, Randy is a very sweet and very … continued
If you’re a vaper that’s into comic books, videogames, science-fiction, or fantasy then you need to check out Empire Glassworks.

At ECC 2014, I chatted with Empire Glassworks … continued
It’s always a pleasure catching up with the 2Puffs guys. Partners Arnel Ang and Charles Tan are really cool people that make some sweet vaping products. At ECC 2014, I chatted with them about the Munstro v2 mechanical mod, the Quicksilver rebuildable dripping atomizer, and the latest 2Puffs drip tips. When I caught up with Charles and Arnel earlier in the year at Vapers Exhibit, the original Munstro was about to launch. Since then, the mod has become a smashing success. The updated version comes with new tube colors … continued
Bare Naked takes a unique and all-natural approach to vaping e-liquids. While several companies list their juices as “All VG,” (vegetable glycerin) in many cases that’s simply not true, as most flavoring ingredients contain PG (propylene glycol). Bare Naked confidently makes the claim that its juice are actually all VG. It uses pure vegetable glycerin, natural flavoring extracts, and (optionally) nicotine for all of its e-liquids. Whether you’re searching for an all-natural vape or are one of the many people allergic to PG, Bare Naked has some compelling e-liquids for … continued
Known for its beginner vaping products, Blow aims to reach enthusiasts vapers in a major way with the Angel Mod. Designed in Belgium, made from 99.9-percent pure Japanese copper, and assembled in America, the Angel Mod is one of the most striking mechanicals I’ve ever seen. The engravings were done by renowned tattoo artist Steve Soto and they’re absolutely gorgeous. Getting past its fantastic aesthetics, the Angel Mod features a magnetized switch and a polymer lining inside the tube. The latter feature helps keep the battery cool while you’re vaping. … continued
As a huge fan of naturally-extracted tobacco e-liquids, I was looking forward to chatting with Witchers Brew at ECC 2014. My buddy Jessie from Vapors.com stopped by the booth and told me that it was a “must see.” Company president Jourele Macalino told me how Witchers Brew got started, its launch at ECC 2013, its current lineup, what kind of naturally-extracted tobaccos the company uses, and the freshly launched Moondust e-liquid. Chief financial officer Harold Fong popped in to talk about the next e-liquid Witchers Brew is working on.
