Aspire Cleito EXO: The 0.4-Ohm Update

Aspire Cleito EXO 1

It really is about time that I told you how I’ve been getting on with the Aspire Cleito EXO tank. Because, and I really hate saying this, I think I need to amend my original review. Wait, before you get all excited, I’m not eating humble pie per se, but I am suggesting that the outlook is lightly chirpier than it was at the time of that original review. Why have things changed? Well, everyone on the Twitterscope kept telling me to try a different coil with my Aspire Cleito EXO tank — the 0.4-ohm coil, rather than the 0.16-ohm ... Read More »

8 Tips to Make Your Coils Last Longer

Tips to Make Your Coils Last Longer 6

There are a number of reasons why you’d want to make your coils last longer. For a start, the more you use, the more you need to buy, and that can bump up the cost of your vaping habit. In my experience, coils can last very different lengths of time, depending on what kind of coils you’re using, what brand it is, what tank it’s in, what liquid you’re using, and more factors besides. Certain types of liquids are renowned for burning through coils much quicker than you’d expect, and there are certain coils (and brands of coil) that also ... Read More »

The Importance of Priming Your Coil

The Importance of Priming Your Coil 1

Today, I would like to talk about the importance of priming your coil. Why? Because a few weeks ago, due to my own damn incompetence and impatience, I wasted a whole coil. Annoying.  The tank was the Innokin Scion tank. I was about to switch one 0.5 ohm Kanthal BVC coil for another, changing it for the first time ever, in fact. My first ever ‘grown up’ tank, I was loving the 70 – 110-watt range and I’m actually BEYOND disappointed that this tank isn’t TPD compatible. In fact, I don’t care that much. I’ll keep huntin’ out places to ... Read More »

Help! My Aspire PockeX is Leaking!

Aspire PockeX is Leaking

Well, ladies and gentleman, the thing that I warned you about in my Aspire PockeX review has happened to me. You know – the leaking thing. I’d read a few people complaining about a leak from their all-in-one device, usually a few weeks or months into using it. I’ll be honest, I didn’t really pay that much attention. Mine worked fine, but then that’s how the story always starts, isn’t it … Groan. Things were going so well for me and the Aspire PockeX. Even after all the confusion surrounding how you were meant to vape with it in the ... Read More »

What is “Vapers Tongue”?

what-is-vapers-tongue-2

You may have heard of the term “vapers tongue” and if you haven’t heard of it, there’s a good chance you may have experienced it. It’s when you lose your sense of taste while you’re vaping – all of a sudden you can’t taste whatever it is you’re meant to be vaping. It’s a pretty annoying experience, although it can be combatted. You just need to know how … Vapers tongue is also sometimes known as flavour fatigue, and it’s basically when you become so used to a flavour that you literally cannot taste it any longer. Obviously the first way ... Read More »

A Closer Look at the Best 18650 Batteries

Best 18650 Batteries for Vaping

When you start getting into the world of the bigger box mod vaping units, such as my recent purchase, the Kangertech Topbox Nano, and also the Pioneer 4 U iPV6x (which I still haven’t actually bought batteries for), you start getting a new realm of batteries. These really confused me at first, with loads of different numbers and digits in the name, and I think the confusion was what put me off these bigger units. If they had required a couple of AA batteries, for example, I probably would have been more inclined to try them earlier. The first battery ... Read More »

8 Tricks To Stop Your Vape Tank Leaking

Some e-cigarettes and vaporisers just leak. I know I probably shouldn’t say that but with certain models, I just find they leak a lot.

Vaping Questions: Why Is My Battery Flashing During Charging?

Why Is My Battery Flashing During Charging?

This seems to be a very common question popping up recently and seeing as I seem to be answering the question a lot in Facebook and Twitter chats, I decided to write a post about it. I’m helpful like that! Why is my battery flashing during charging?  Your ecig battery will usually flash when the battery is dead and requires charging up. When you’re plugging in your battery, are you accidentally knocking the button that activates the vaporiser? It could be that you’re trying to turn it on by accident and that’s what is causing the lights to flash. I’ve ... Read More »

Picking Your Eliquid Strength – Top Tips For Getting It Right

Picking Your Eliquid Strength – Top Tips For Getting It Right

One of the common questions I’m asked by new vapers is ‘What strength eliquid do I need?’, and although the answer probably SHOULD be quite simple, it’s really not. Different brands will often offer different types and styles of eliquid, as well as different strengths too, and what might be strong in one brand won’t necessarily pack the same punch from another. For example, with the Vapouriz brand of eliquid, I usually opt for a 18mg or 1.8% strength and that does me just fine. However, if I buy the same strength and flavour of eliquid from a different brand, ... Read More »
