Well, I'm an over 6 foot tall, nearly 20 stone bearded bloke currently vaping on a rainbow coloured pod device not much larger than a zippo lighter, and my god, I'm in love...
So, the reason I have this device is that I wanted to review the Ruthless nic salts eliquid I was sent, and as they recommended a pod device I wanted to do them justice, and I thought once I'd tried all the juice out I'd pass it on to the Mrs and she could use it.
I went to my local B&M vape shop (find them online here www.thevapourbar.co.uk) and spoke to the guys in there about what they'd recommend as I know they try almost every new device out there and they really know what they're talking about. The first thing I noticed was that every one of them had one of these on a lanyard around their necks... One of the guys in the shop told me I had to try his out straight away, yes, this was the device I wanted to use, I just needed to see what colour the Mrs would want, and of course, rainbow... Unfortunately I fell in love with it and so its mine, in all it's rainbow glory!!
So... in the box you get the device, a tiny little thing with a 950mAh battery and just one button to turn it on and off, it's draw-activated which is handy. You get 2 pods which each hold 2ml of liquid, a great little flat USB cable and a lanyard connector.
So, the pods, they're little plastic pods containing a tiny 1.2ohm coil and using organic Japanese cotton, with 2 metal connectors and a rubber bung covering the fill hole. There's then a hole right through the centre for the draw activation and a small hole for your vapour. As far as the airflow goes, it's a restricted direct to lung hit for me, but I know the guys in The Vapour Bar have been using it Mouth to Lung, I just find it a touch airy for MTL, even with the little plug they supply installed in the airflow to restrict it. I find a gentle direct to lung draw works best for me, but can sometimes result in a dry hit, I feel that might be user error though! They say you can fill the pods around 5 times, and that seems about right for me, and for the amount I've been using it, which to be honest is quite a lot I've had about a week out of each pod.
The device itself feels great in the hand, it's tiny, but feels really substantial. It lights up when on charge or when vaping, starting at full battery - blue, 50% battery - purple and oh bugger recharge quickly - red. There's a tiny little button that you can click 5 times to turn the device on and off or hold it for 5 seconds to activate "stealth mode" which just turns off the LED.
As far as the device goes that's about it, it's really simple and works brilliantly, I absolutely love mine, just wish I'd gone with a manlier colour! At £36.99 here (The Vapour Bar - MiPod) it's an absolute bargain and with the pods at £7.49 for 2 they're pretty good value too, especially when you take into account how little liquid you will get through using this!
If I lost this would I buy another... Well I've considered this a few times as it's so bloody tiny and I refuse to wear it around my neck, and yes, I really would, what a brilliant little device! I may even have to buy myself a manlier colour and let my good lady have this one!
