Posted on September 28th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

One of the more unique companies I met with at ECC 2013, Rehab Vapors has some cool flavors and an interesting business model. The company donates 10 percent of its profits to detox-and-recovery programs. It’s awesome seeing a vaping company with charitable donations built into its business model. As for the flavors, Rehab Vapors has several interesting combinations that appeal to a broad range of vapers. Watch Rehab Vapors COO William Spallino talk about the company’s start, its approach to crafting e-liquids, the current flavor lineup, and more. You’ll also … continued

Vaping Diaries #117: How to Properly Pronounce Innokin

Posted on September 27th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Like many vaping reviewers, I’ve been very impressed by Innokin products. Unlike many vaping reviewers, I actually pronounce the company’s name correctly. This is something that has always bugged me; some of the most popular reviewers on YouTube butcher the pronunciation of Innokin. At ECC 2013, I caught up with Innokin deputy manager/vice president Haoran “George” Xia to get the official word on how to properly pronounce Innokin.

To me, it always seemed obvious that the company name was a play on the word innovation. For some reason, some … continued

In the interview, Riddle talks about how the company got started, goes through lineup of flavors, and talks about the two new juices launched at the show. One unique feature of the new Mr. Good Vape e-liquids is that they’re tooled to taste great in cartomizers and rebuildable atomizers.

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

Here’s an ECC 2013 interview with Ross Deramos, owner of Nosty Inc. In addition to making popular e-liquids — many of which feature Filipino flavors — the company works in event promotion and fashion. In the interview, Ross talks about Nosty’s background, its current juice lineup, and upcoming flavors (more Pinoy e-liquids!).

On a side note, while RPadholic N8R was filming the interview, he was determined to buy Nosty’s Sexxxxx e-liquid. That way he could tell his wife that he paid for sex. Bwahahahahaha!!! (And also, I’m jealous that … continued

Vaping Diaries #113: Innokin at ECC 2013 (iTaste VTR, Cool Fire)

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

Here’s a quick rundown of Innokin’s ECC 2013 lineup. The company showed off several products that will be available in the next few months. The highly anticipated iTaste VTR box mod hits first, with an October release date. The unit’s heft surprised me; it feels like a solid device that’s considerably heavier than its sister product, the iTaste MVP 2. The massive iTaste 134 will soon be joined by smaller siblings. The iTaste 134 Mini will be available in 18350 and 18490 sizes. Innokin showed off prototypes of the … continued

Vaping Diaries #112: POET Randy Freer Interview

Posted on September 24th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. 5 comments

Out of all the e-liquid companies I chatted with at ECC 2013, POET (Pursuit of Excellent Taste) was one of the most impressive. The company takes a complex and culinary approach to making e-liquids. POET juices are not single-note flavors, but complex blends of multiple tastes. For example, POET CEO Randy Freer described his Americano Ciambella as his “morning drive.” It features maple, coffee, and tobacco flavors, as if you were munching on a maple bar, sipping a cup of joe, and smoking a cigarette during a commute.

In … continued

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

While I was filming an interview on the Vapor Bombz Omega, I noticed that my buddy Marie Alvarez was working at the booth. Naturally, I had to get her on camera for one of my favorite interviews of ECC 2013. Marie Alvarez is a model that has done a lot of work for vaping companies. Some vapers see her photos and don’t believe that she’s really a vaper. I promise you that she’s a vaper. She rocks a bedazzled Innokin iTaste MVP and loves pastry juices. Watch the … continued

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

Cartel Mods is a relatively new maker of mechanical mods that’s taking a luxurious approach to vaping. At ECC 2013, I caught up with Cartel Mods’ chief mod maker Gino Litonjua to talk about how the company got started, its philosophy of mod making, the unusual quality of its stainless steel, and upcoming additions to the Cartel Mods lineup.

While most stainless-steel mechanical-mods are made with 303, 304, or 316L stainless steel, Cartel Mods uses the more expensive 904L stainless steel. This is the stuff that Rolex uses to … continued
