Artery PAL II Pod Vape Review

Artery PAL II Pod Vape Kit

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!

Artery PAL II Pod
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.
Beard 32 Nicotine Salt Vape Juice
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, which is perfect for thinner juices and salt nic. I've been vaping Beard #32 30mg salt nic vape juice with the 1.2 ohm coil and have not had any issues, and flavor is actually pretty impressive.

The next thing I noticed is the magnetic back door to the mod which is easily removable for quick filling. Many dual battery box mods utilize this style of door so that you can quickly and easily access the battery compartment. The pod itself slides into the top portion of the mod, and the fill port is on the side of the pod that faces out. This makes it super simple to fill the pod if it's already installed into the device. I found that I got little to no leaking with the side fill port. The fact that there is adjustable airflow in the base of the pod means that you can dial in your airflow just how you like it.
Filling Artery PAL II Pod Vape Kit
The PAL II has a fire button, which means you push the button to vape, and the device must be turned off when you put it away so that the fire button isn't accidentally pushed when you're not vaping on it. Many pod vapes these days are auto draw, and have no buttons. I find that you can run into problems with reliability with auto draw pod vapes, and many people prefer a pod vape with a button for this reason.
Charging Artery PAL II Pod Vape Kit
There is an LED battery indicator light placed just above the micro USB charge port. When you are charging the PAL II, this light will also let you know how much time you've got left until it's fully charged. After setting up the PAL II and using it as my all day vape, it took 2 days until I needed to charge my battery. I could charge this up and leave my house confident that I won't run out of power during a weekend's worth of outings.

All in all, the Artery PAL II is definitely a kit worth looking at if you're in the market for a palm-sized pod vape that you can use all day with very little maintenance.

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%…

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…


As 2019 approaches, many people will be making the switch to vaping. With so many products on the market, it can be extremely difficult to find the right vape for you and even harder to find something that's beginner friendly. In order to make the change as smooth and successful as possible, we've put together a list of the best vape starter kits for 2019!
Yes, seriously. Even though the Juul is considerably more expensive than other options, it's small, light, incredibly easy to use, and might even be a little cheaper than buying cigarettes. The 5% nicotine salt in Juul pods provides a nicotine hit that's very similar to the nicotine that you get from the average cigarette, and with Juul introducing 3% nicotine pods, you'll even be able to wean yourself off of nicotine a little more effectively. Between its low skill requirements, familiar feel, and a small variety flavors to choose from, it can be extremely effective in helping you switch to vaping. As succ…
