In October, I stopped by The Vapor Spot, a vapor bar in Los Angeles. The bar lets vapers try out different hardware and e-liquids. Many people buy their gear and juices online, often relying on message boards and reviews for information. While recommendations can be really useful, nothing beats being able to try out different vaping devices and sample different juices with your own mouth. This is what The Vapor Spot offers.
Last week, RPadholic N8R and I spent a few hours at the store. Like I … more
Raina and I checked out three fantastic e-liquids from Ahlusion — Blue Grass Burley, Devil Dog!, and Poppin’ Peach. In addition to offering high-quality juices, Ahlusion does a phenomenal job of packaging its wares. The e-liquids comes in sealed glass bottles that are covered in bubble wrap. The bottles are placed in a box full of foam peanuts. Standard caps are on the bottles by default and separate dripper caps are included. As far as packaging and presentation go, Ahlusion is the best I’ve seen. Now onto … more
The iTaste MVP from Innokin is currently one of the hottest products in vaping and it’s easy to see why. It offers great performance and battery life in a sturdy metal body. What’s even more impressive is that the iTaste MVP offers top performance and versatile features for a low price. That said, it’s missing one key feature and has a few quirks. Read on for more details on Innokin’s latest and greatest.
For the last few weeks, I’ve been using the Odyssey e-cigarette from Totally Wicked. This is an unusual and beautiful vaping device that really stands out. What I mean by unusual is that unlike most vaping products (or products of any kind, really), it’s not made in China. The Odyssey was designed in the UK and is manufactured there as well. What I mean by beautiful is…well, just look at it. This is a gorgeous mechanical mod that’s made from steel and glass. Considering the top-notch materials and craftsmanship, … more
RPadholic N8R and I checked out three e-liquids from Orb Vapor – Organic Caramel Apple, Organic Mexican Vanilla, and Organic Watermelon Menthol. The juices come in blue glass bottles with a dripper cap. The bottles are wrapped in a thick layer of wrapping tissue and sent in a bubble envelope; in my experience, only one other vendor does a better job in terms of packaging and presentation. Check out the video above and some notes on the juices below.
Organic Caramel Apple: This was N8R’s favorite juice of the … more
The Vapor4Life Handle is a nice, compact vaping device that offers big power and amazing battery life. It’s part of V4L’s OMG line, which is geared towards advanced vapers. The Handle is currently available for $89.95 and comes in four colors: black, blue, green, and magenta. I’ve been using the blue model for a little under two weeks and I’m super-impressed with the product, save for one aspect. Read on for the details (please)!
What’s in the Kit: The Handle comes in a nice box with the unit, a … more
My excellent friend Raina Lee and I checked out three e-liquids from Heather’s Heavenly Vapes. We vaped a trio of juices named after The Lord of the Rings characters: Gandalf, Gollum, and Shadowfax. While we were impressed by the quality of all three, we each had a favorite. Watch the video review to hear details on the flavor of all three products. They’re even tastier than Hobbit leaf!

Here’s a stylish and unique e-cigarette that’s geared towards casual and social smokers: the Emini from Ovale USA. This vaping device comes with two batteries and a cool charging case that strongly resembles an Apple iPhone 4/4S. While it’s not powerful enough for hardcore vapors, it’s a compelling choice for social smokers that don’t want to fuss with charging cables and want a product that looks good. Here’s the rundown.
What’s in the Kit: The Emini comes with two batteries, a charging case, three e-liquid cartridges, two atomizers, … more
One of the vaping devices in my current rotation is the eGo VV from Apollo E-Cigs. This is a straightforward variable-voltage battery that’s backed by an unusually high level of service. For those new to variable-voltage vaping, this is a great device to start out with. It’s also a compelling choice for vaping veterans. I’ll explain it all as I break it down (cue the Degeneration-X music).
What’s in the Kit: This is a barebones kit that includes a battery, a UC-E6 to USB cable, instructions, and … more
Please check out the video interview above with Josef Fares, game director of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, and read my preview-ish thoughts below. This downloadable game is set to hit PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in Spring 2012 courtesy of Starbreeze and 505 Games. I checked it out a few weeks ago and was really enamored with its art style and gameplay. The controls are simple, but used in a unique and compelling fashion. In some ways, it reminded me of a cross between Ico… more
