Temperature Control and Why You Want It.

Along with sub-ohm atomizers and high wattage devices,┬áTemperature Control is one of the hottest (pardon the pun) new vaping technologies this year. ┬áBut,┬áif controlling the wattage sent to the atomizer is controlling the heat, then why do we need temperature control? ┬áThe answer is that temperature control does a much better job of regulating the […]

ZMAX Mini 50% off at Madvapes

I’ve always liked the ZMAX line from Smok and the Mini has been one of my favorite pocket devices. ┬áThe battery life of the single 18350 battery is┬árelatively short in comparison with some of the current small box mods, but the mini is still a nice device to hold and use. ┬áMadvapes now has them […]

ProVari 3 Presale!

With weekly and sometimes daily news of new devices on the market, the ProVari has stood the test of time admirably. ┬áFrom its introduction, it has been the standard of quality and performance that variable voltage electronic cigarettes are measured against. The design is so good that it doesn’t need to be improved very often, […]

Smok Tech Rocket

Smok Tech has released a new variation on the variable voltage/variable wattage (VV/VW) mod. The Rocket uses a rotating center ring rather than a menu system to adjust the output. There are five settings for output – 3.6V, 4.0V, 4.4V, 4.8V and 6.0V or 6.0W, 8.0W, 10.0W, 12.0W, and 15.0W. These options are somewhat limited, […]


Variable voltage devices with Chinese origins often have a menu option that allows the user to switch between RMS and MEAN (or AVG) options. ┬áWhich should you choose, and why? ┬áI’m no electrical engineer, so I can really only give you an overview of the engineering involved. ┬áWhat I can tell you is that RMS […]

Just updated the eVic!

After only a week with the eVic, I just downloaded a new ROM and flashed it to the device via USB. ┬áPretty impressive stuff! ┬áThe update fixed one of my primary complaints with the device, the fact that it did not function in a true variable power mode. ┬áIn version 1.0 of the software, the […]

Madvapes AcryliMax

Madvapes has continued the tradition of modding, this time by taking the internals of the impressive new ZMAX and placing them in an attractive acrylic tube. ┬áJust like hot-rodding, the AcryliMax is a matter of taking a powerful engine and clothing it in a custom body. ┬áEven if there are limits to the technology that […]

Kick is in stock at Altsmoke

I reviewed the Kick a little while ago and they’ve been a little hard to find since then. For anyone still looking for one, Altsmoke has them in stock now at a very reasonable $44.95.

The Smokbox VariCool

After a few days with the Smokbox VariCool from SmokTek, I am finding myself using it more and more. It’s a great box mod that combines the enjoyment of variable voltage with great battery life. Learn more in the review.

Smokbox VariCool from SmokTek

Smoktek has just expanded their line of custom box mods with the Smokbox VariCool Mod. It’s a custom variable voltage mod that incorporates a switching regulator, meaning that it will be a lot more efficient than a linear regulated mod. It should run cooler and get better life out of the two 14500 batteries it […]
