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”?


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

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 »

Vype eBox Check Atomiser Message

When I first opened the Vype eBox I found it quite difficult to understand and I’ll be honest, it took me a while to piece it together to get it working.

It’s an easy problem to fix at home. The first thing the customer ... Read More »

ECig & Vaporiser Battery Safety Tips

Why Is My Battery Flashing During Charging?

As with many things in life, e-cigarettes and personal vaporisers are perfectly safe to use for the most part. Occasionally, things will go wrong. You might get a faulty battery or tank. You might use the wrong charger with the battery. You might leave it plugged in for too long unsupervised… When you read many of the stories in the media of ecigs blowing up and other such horrors, it’s normally because of a user error. I’m not saying that’s the case for every blown-up ecig obviously but a lot of the time, if you’re using a good quality vaporiser, ... Read More »

Troubleshooting: My ECig Cartomiser Has Flooded!

Flooding an ecig tank or cartomiser is actually very common and if you’re new to the world of vaping, there’s a good chance you’re going to experience this at least once. I’ve been vaping for many years and I still flood my tank every now and again. If your ecig is making a bizarre ‘gurgling’ noise when you inhale on it, it could be that your ecig cartomiser has flooded. What this essentially means is that e-liquid has got into the parts of the tank it shouldn’t have got to, resulting in that noise and more often than not, a bad ... Read More »
