BEST ACCESSORIES EVAAAAR!
Review by Pwnable N00bon 10/14/11
On a slightly more serious note, I got my new & improved Mega Cartomizer & some Grape Escape ejuice in da mail today. At least this time I wasn't home to scare the crap out of the postman while openning the door within seconds of him openning my mail slot.. :P
This thing is nifty, filled it with a kit that looks like a needle one would shoot drugs with but with a plastic bendible tip. Hence, no stab wounds.. Filled it up with my new, lowered nicotine level ejuice from the same company that made my vaporizer, in this case it is a tastey grape flavor that is quite a nice vape as a fan of grape coolaid. Its a 16mg juice which probably amounts to an untra light cigarette, to me at least. The obsorbtion meathod is much different than the tar of smoke & even high nicotine ejuice/eliquid (like 36mg), doesn't give one the so called "satisfaction" of a burning smoke for a varriety of reasons which at this point I'm actually glad as I've grown weary of the cruddy feeling of "the nicotine buzz" & over all effects you get from smoking; see also: I quit smoking.
Anywaaaay, since I started vaping about a month ago (has it really been a month without smokes? It went by so quick! Woohoo!) I've been looking for an effective way to vape while driving. Driving & smoking always went side by side with me, ask anyone who's ever ridden in my car (if they will even speak on the subject without at least gagging a little..). It always smelled bad, even to me after the desensitization of my senses came back.
Well, so far dripping & driving is a lot like drunk driving, you end up all over the road. Its like trying to put a very complicated puzzle together upside down at a high rate of speed, not the safest option. Then there is the tankomizer that came with my starter kit. It holds definitely an hrs worth of juice but can taste kinda funny if it vapor locks or gets too hot, & when I'm looking to improve my health the last thing I think of is the plastic flavor I keep getting from this thing. Its good for an occasional go to, but the flavor is also hidden somehow by the tank system & without the flavor I might as well suck on a smoke machine & save myself the trouble..
Now I had a hard time looking up how to fill this thing properly online, & while it is a new version I was dissapointed not to receive instructions nor find any on the site. I almost started modding my new cartomizers while watching one video & popped a piece out of one of five I got for $12 & when I thought I broke it forever I wanted to kick dat brittish wanker right in his crumpets & scone. Well, I decided I was smart enough to figure it out myself after retrieving & putting back in an essential piece of one of my "new version" "cartos".
After compairing it to a fresh one & figuring it was as good as it was gonna get, (thanks you limey bastard lol) I went for a sure thing with the newly openned one & proceeded to fill dat bad boii up with my new favorite "purple draaank" flavored eliquid (which is growing on me, & fast!) & let it sit so the wick could soak up enough juice for it to work properly (that much is common sense, whadoyah tink I'm stoopid? No way I'm burning this wick & making all my delicious new, lower nicotine juice taste like burnt ass hair..).
Well, I finally gave it a toot & I must say without a doubt thus far; BEST DELIVERY METHOD EVAAAAR!... it has this little rubber cap that is maluable & far more pleasant to put my lips around than that alluminium drip tip I've been drooling on most of the time. Even the plastic tankomizer tip is more pleasant than sucking on a peice of metal all day.
The tip is tapered just right so it has a smallish hole which really centralizes the vapor into a small area as it enters your mouth & hits your tongue & represents quite well a similar, but thankfully not identical pull to that of a traditional smoke or cigarello. You can really feel the warmth on your tongue with this thing, & having it aim the vapor directly at your tongue really brings the flavor directly to my newly awakened taste buds (after depriving them of true flavor for fifteen years they've been a bit flooky for the first few weeks, but are starting to balance out now..). The draw is great, unlike an atomizer where it is varried at best & feels quite like sucking vapor through a tiny hotwheels hubcap, or the tankomizer, which is reminescent of cigarellos or blank & milds back id the dizzay before I was old enough to buy what I was suckin' on with all my might. Thank you tobacco vending machines in entrance ways & exits of most bar & grills/pool halls/& even arcades across the country when I was 15-17 yrs young & foolish. Put them where no one can see or monitor them, good call... :/
The vape produces very nice consistant hits without all the sound effects the other methods make much of the time, the rubber is soft & has a lot of play to it on the mouthpiece, the vapor is nice & warm yet not hot which is a total bonus compaired to the cold vape of a tanko & the oft times too hot vape of the finicky, fussy, touchy, easily mismanaged & malfunctioning atomizers that are used with drip tips which are notoriously spotty & oft times fail or act funny within just a few days at 56.99 a pop! The atomizer inside my tankomizer has yet to fail on me, though I admittidly use it less (but when I use it I reeeally use it.. I oft times puff my now too strong vapor like a cigar so I get just the nicotine in my mouth, so its seen & made it through a great deal of abuse to its credit.). I have to line up & clean five different atomizers just so I can enjoy my flavors without mudding up too many flavors in one, with one clean spare put aside in the likeliness that they will all eventually fail me at one point or another (which is why it is wise to buy them when in stock, even if you don't really need them at the time. Better safe than sorry! Although by this point Id much rather drop a drop of ejuice on my tongue every so often than to go back to smoking!).
These results, however premature in nature as they haven't stood the test of time just yet (will test the crap outta this first one for shits & giggles), I can easily say I will be stocking up on another two packs of these beauties, as well as a larger, even lower nicotine level bottle of Grape Escape in the hopefully not too distant future.
Each pack comes with 5, & each are supposed to last 5-10+ refills depending who you ask, what kind of juice you use, how much abuse they receive, whether or not you can or will be cleaning them (correctly), & the luck of the draw in the batch you get I assume, not to mention the fact that you can't check the juice level from the outside & if you vape these things too dry it is said to give them that burnt asshair taste/smell everyone seems to loath when it comes to the wick system inside cartridges, tankomizers, atomizers, & cartomizers alike.. personally I've taken to cleaning my main equipment with a lil water & some TLC since I depend on it to make quitting smoking & weaning off the main ingredient; nicotine, suck far, far less..
All in all I'm psyched about this new method, no more will I suffer drip tip stop light worries (for once I'm actually hoping for a red light, go figure!), nor suck priming my tankomizer like a gay fish on a fishstdick, nor will I have to shake it like a polaroid pictchaaa to avoid vapor lock, deal with that ode de plastice' flavor the tanks give my delicately flavored ejuices, nor have to fiddle around to refill it/replace it mid tank to avoid that burnt garbage flavor I've come to accept as a scolding for not keeping my atomizers wet enough at all times. True, I will have to make sure my cartomizers remain topped off with an easily broken & seedy looking seringe kit thing-a-ma-jig, but once every few hours (needs further testing) beats once every few minutes with the drip, or once every 1/2 hr-1hr with the tanks.
The thrilling conclusion of this "New New Version" of the "Newly Designed" "Mega Magma XL Cartomizer" by "Volcanoecigs.com", is that it is THE BEST addition for my new little, damage reducing, clothes refreshening, house not stankin', tongue unbrowning, cig stain removing, lung recopassitating, life renewing, outlook on like refreshing, potentially life saving, shakes easing, tension relieving, stress reducing, addiction weaning, deliciously tasting & totally geeky adult toy! The icing on the cake is that the throat hit is extra ordinary for anything I've encountered thus far in the vaping world (though admittedly I'm still a n00b in the vaping world, but I'm indeed a fast learner to my credit!...).
I still wanna get me one of those e-pipes tnst glow with LED lights & actually replicate a real tobacco pipe quite splendidly.. check 'em out, super neat-o! I want someone to design me a Gandolf styke pipe, which would rock my world especially if it came with names of ejuices straight out of The Lord of the Rings trillogy & comes from The West Farthing! That alongside a ecig peace pipe would make my lil granola eating hippy heart explode with the joy of a hundred free vege burritos & backstage passes to a complete, across the country Dead tour.
That is all... for now at least, I think my thumbs are gonna become stronger than my bicepts if I continue to harp & lark on my driod keyboard any longer.
Happy reading my facebook equivenlent of a tech junkie product review, & to those of you on the wagon & fully onboard this vape train to Chillsville, happy vaping my brothers & sisters!
Kiss my shiny metal ass RJ Renolds, eat a fat sack of crap Phillip Morris! Dis shits da bomb, so much so that I may very well continue vaping long after my nicotine level reaches zero freakin' mg's..
(P/S: Yes, I can really type up a storm properly inspired, & just as I was a full throttle smoker when I smoked & was determind to smoke no matter what people said, the same now applies to not smoking. I truly do love the innovation & creative design I'm seeing in the vape world nowadays & once I can afford it a herbal only vaporizer will grace my presence as soon as humanly possible.).
