Review: Joyetech eGo AIO ECO Starter Kit Vape

Almost all vapes on the market today that are designed for use with nicotine salts have a small, lightweight design. Most manufactures have opted to go with a less traditional styling, ranging from squares and rectangles, to discs and over-sized tear drops. Introducing the Joyetech eGo AIO ECO!

This sleek innovative device retains a more classic cylindrical tube shape that is fairly close in size to a Sharpie, and is one of the only nicotine salt compatible devices that implements a tried and true fire button, as apposed to using the fundamentally flawed auto draw (suck to vape) firing mechanism. So lets dive into this almost counter-culture nicotine salt vape system and the features that make this such an exciting device.

The Joyetech eGo AIO ECO packs a 650mAh battery, which is the largest I have seen from a device this small. Additionally, the ECO takes advantage of some mathematical wizardry that I wont burden you too much with just yet, but results in the device taking after its EC…

Artery PAL II Pod Vape Review

Ever since I decided to make a salt nic system one of my daily vapes, I've wanted a device that packed more battery life and could hold more juice than that of the average system. I was definitely excited when the Artery PAL II landed in my hands to test out. The PAL II boasts a 1000mAh built in battery and a 3ml pod with replaceable coils and adjustable airflow, which stands well above my other pod vapes that are around 250-450mAh and 2ml. Eureka! The first thing that I noticed while setting up the PAL II is that the coil is replaceable within the pod. I like this for 2 reasons: firstly, I hate waiting. Being able to prime the coil right away and install it into the pod is a lot more convenient to me than filling a pod and waiting 5-10 minutes. Secondly, it means you have options when it comes to coils. Artery has two coil options available for the PAL II. They make a 0.6 ohm coil best utilized with 70/30 e-liquids, and they have a mouth-to-lung style coil that is 1.2 ohms…

Smok Novo Pod Vape Review

We've already tested the Smok Novo once before, and next to the other pod systems that were being released at the time, we decided it wasn't good enough to make the cut. We've been hearing about the Novo more and more often though, so we decided to revisit it and see what we think after we've had some experience with other pod vape kits.
The Smok Novo is a small refillable pod vape kit with a 450mAh battery and a 2ml pod. Unlike the Nord, Smok's larger pod vape, the Novo is auto draw and therefore has no buttons. I quite like auto draw pod vapes, because not having any buttons means that you don't need to turn it on and off, and it's just that much easier to vape.
Like the Nord, the Novo has a metal body with snakeskin resin plates on the front and back of the device. I'm not exactly the biggest fan of snakeskin resin, but the lack of swirly colors that you usually see with resin does provide a remarkably clean look. Since the snakeskin resin isn't…

Nicotine Salts VS Freebase Nicotine - What's The Difference?

With the Juul now being the most popular vape on the market, nicotine salts are becoming more and more common as other manufacturers follow in Juul's footsteps. There's a lot of confusion about nicotine salts and how they differ from the nicotine most vapers are used to, so we're going to look at what the difference is and why it's worth knowing about nicotine salts. The Juul is a commonly misunderstood vape, due in no small part to the fact that they're so simple to use. The Juul pods come pre-filled, and up until recently they only had one nicotine option with the only real choice being the flavor of the vape juice that comes in the Juul pod.



The packaging is labeled as containing “5% nicotine by weight”, where most e-juice is measured in milligrams per milliliter, like 3mg or 18mg. If you were to turn those numbers into a percentage by volume, 3mg would be 0.3% and 18mg would be 1.8%. Most people think that this means the Juul is 50mg, but since the pods are 5%…
