From basic products like cig a likes and starter kits to the most technologically advanced personal vaporizers and rebuildable atomizers, our main objective has always been to bring you, our readers, accurate and unbiased vaping reviews, in order to help you decide on a specific device when making the switch to e-smoking. And each one of these reviews has a story behind it, because we always invest a lot of time and effort testing, comparing and writing about a specific product from the moment it arrives at our door to the moment we publish our conclusions.
Electronic cigarettes and vaping products in general are under constant development and new technologies make their way on the market sometimes on a monthly basis. This is why we try to stay connected with the current vaping trends and make sure we come in close contact with many of the recently released personal vaporizers, starter kits, atomizers and tanks.
Many of the products you see featured on our website we buy ourselves but some of them are sent to us by various companies for the purpose of writing reviews. But regardless is we pay for a device or get it for free, we always test it rigorously and make sure it performs as intended before putting its review online. We feel that it’s our essential responsibility to present readers only with objective, precise and detailed information about the products we test in order for them to impartially weigh the pros and cons about each device and settle on a specific ecig mod or vaping kit.
The ecig products we buy usually arrive on our doorstep the next day or in a couple of days after placing the order, and depending on the delivery time and general purchasing experience we decide if the online shop is worth referring our readers to or not. Sometimes we get emails from certain e-cigarette companies or manufacturers who ask us if we want to review one or several products, and depending on the type of device we can accept or decline the offer. However, you can rest assured we never accept free products or any means of compensation in exchange for positive reviews, because we feel our readers’ trust is worth a lot more.
After receiving a vaping product the next step is checking out the package and the unboxing, which you will witness in a dedicated category of our website we plan to launch in the near future. First impressions always matter and for us the packaging and presentation are important aspects of each review. The same goes for the contents of each box and we constantly try to include a detailed list of everything we find next to the specific product. From manuals, charging cables, spare coils or spare Pyrex glass tubes, if it’s inside the box it’s also going to be mentioned in our review.
The build quality, finish, materials used and form factor are also important features of each mechanical mod, personal vaporizer or rebuildable atomizer and we always to thoroughly inspect a product and describe everything with attention to details. We also present information about the general layout of the buttons, the location of the 510 or eGo connectors, the location of the charging port and if a device has an internal battery or works with one that needs to be purchased separately.
On our website we talk about a wide range of products, from disposable e-cigarettes and starter kits to mechanical and variable wattage mods, as well as rebuildable atomizers, e-liquids, and herbal vaporizers and reviewing devices from each one of these categories involves different approaches and testing criteria. When it comes to a starter kit for instance we take into account a product’s vapor production, the flavor and throat hit, the battery life, the price and overall build quality. When we test a personal vaporizer we consider aspects like battery life, build quality, aesthetics, price and the ease of use. In the case of e-liquids we pay attention to the flavor,vapor production and throat hit we get on different setups.
Generally, we evaluate the build quality by carefully inspecting the products and by comparing them to others. We pay close attention to the threading, the 510 center pin, the clickiness of buttons, location and build quality of the charging port, product rattle, and functionality. We check out the display for visibility in direct sunlight and the built in ohm meter on some devices for inconsistencies with different atomizers and tanks. We use personal vaporizer with low resistance atomizers at the highest possible wattages and put a lot of stress on the internal components to see if they malfunction. We chain vape to see how hot the battery gets after a few dozen seconds. And we do all this in order to present you with the most objective conclusions and detailed information in our product reviews and always make sure that we feature on our site only products that are worth purchasing.
