Vaping Diaries #183: Drip Club Review

Posted on March 27th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

E-liquid subscription services are the rage right now. They offer vapers a convenient way to try a variety of juices from a number of vendors. The latest juice subscription service I tried was Drip Club. This company aims to bring the experience of a high-end Southern California vape shop right to your door.

If you’re not familiar with the Southern California vape scene, the region has the highest concentration of vape shops in the world and a large number of e-liquid companies. As a SoCal resident, I feel fortunate … continued

Vaping Diaries #182: 2Puffs Interview (Munstro Mod and More)

Posted on March 25th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Many vapers love 2Puffs pyrex tanks and drip tips. The company is still cranking out those products, but is taking its game to the next level with the Munstro. This mechanical mod comes with three tubes that use three different metals, a tritone drip tip, and a wood stand. At Vapers Exhibit, I caught up with 2Puffs partners Arnel Ang and Charles Tan. The two gave me details on the Munstro, shared some company history, revealed what was behind the 2Puffs name, and told me how a Johnnie Walker Black … continued

Vaping Diaries #181: Naughty by Vapor Interview (Vapers Exhibit)

Posted on March 24th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

I never thought that I would post an article or video that combined vaping with adult film stars, but Naughty by Vapor took care of that! I’ve been wanting to meet the company for some time, as it’s a Filipino-American crew that has some cleverly named and delicious e-liquids. While the Naughty by Vapor Classic Line has a lot of fans, the new Luxury Line is getting a ton of buzz. The new juices are named after and inspired by actresses in adult films — genius!

In the interview … continued

Vaping Diaries #180: Trabuco Vapors Interview (Vapers Exhibit)

Posted on March 24th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

As a huge fan of naturally-extracted tobacco e-liquids and a resident of Southern California, I was excited to meet the Trabuco Vapors crew at Vapers Exhibit. In SoCal, the majority of the e-liquid companies focus on fruit and dessert flavors. As a tobacco guy, I was pleased to hear about a SoCal juice maker that focuses on naturally-extracted tobacco juices.

At Vapers Exhibit, I chatted with Trabuco Vapors co-owner Robert Fairrington and juice master general Chas Trowbridge. The two talk about Trabuco Vapors’ origins, the company’s juices, the tobacco extraction … continued

Vaping Diaries #179: Tobh Mods Jay-Bo Interview (Vapers Exhibit)

Posted on March 24th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. 2 comments

The Tobh Atomizer is the hot atty in the business right now, so I was psyched to catch up with Tobh Mods owner Jay-Bo at Vapers Exhibit. It was fun learning about how the company got started, what the company name means, and his fascinating background. While I’m still trying to figure out how someone with a background in deaf education, a passion for linguistics, and professional barista skills made an incredible atomizer, it was fantastic meeting Jay-Bo and learning more about Tobh Mods.

Check out the interview above to … continued

Vaping Diaries #178: Five Pawns Mixology Review (Fifth Rank, Perpetual Check)

Posted on March 21st, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Back in Vaping Diaries #173, I reviewed three e-liquids from Five Pawns new Mixology Edition. Now it’s time to review the remaining two — Fifth Rank and Perpetual Check. If you’re not familiar with Mixology Edition, these juices were inspired by alcoholic beverages. Fifth Rank incorporates champagne flavor, while Perpetual Check has a taste that’s similar to black currant liquer. Both are quality juices with lots of complexity. I loved one of them, while the other didn’t work for me. Now let’s get to the tasting notes!… continued

Vaping Diaries #176: Vaping Utopia Ronald Cachero Interview

Posted on March 14th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Vaping Utopia is a relatively new e-liquid company that has been getting a lot of buzz. The company is off to an exciting start, with its Shangri La flavor getting strong reviews. Vaping Utopia makes natural-tasting juices that are made in the USA. Its e-liquids don’t contain any preservatives and additives. The flavoring components it uses were made with inhalation in mind, as opposed to many food flavorings used in e-liquids that are made for digestion. The juices come in square glass bottles that feature designs from local artists. The … continued

Vaping Diaries #175: West Coast Vapers Review

Posted on March 12th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

West Coast Vapers is a Santa Fe Springs, California vape shop that has its own line of juices. The company names each of its e-liquids after different West Coast cities. I recently took a tour of three West Coast Vapers cities — Chico, Monterey Park, and Rolling Hills. While none of the juices blew me away, none of them were bad. Although none of these e-liquids dazzled me, some of them could be right for you. Read on for the full details.

Chico: This Northern California town is known … continued

Vaping Diaries #174: Biowick Cotton Wick Review

Posted on March 11th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. 7 comments

In 2013, cotton became the wick material of choice for many vapers. Some people made the switch for its clean and neutral flavor, while others claim that cotton generates more vapor. Whatever the case, to get the best results out of cotton, it needs to be boiled and dried in a clean environment. Sterile cotton is available from pharmacies, but some find the loose gauze or cotton balls tricky to work with. Biowick (available from Vapor Hub) is pretreated and pre-threaded organic cotton that offers the benefits of the … continued

Vaping Diaries #173: Five Pawns Mixology Review (Castle Long, Lucena, Sixty-Four)

Posted on March 7th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Not Reviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. 4 comments

Five Pawns Mixology line is comprised of a quintet of e-liquids inspired by alcoholic beverages. Similar to many of the Five Pawns juices I tried last year, several of the Mixology e-liquids are complex and unique. One of them is among the most distinct e-liquids I’ve ever tried. Five Pawns has a fervent fan base and the Mixology line broadens the company’s reach by introducing new flavors. Mixology also takes Five Panws to the next level by serving up some wonderfully complex juice. While these Five Pawns Mixology juices aren’t … continued
