The Pulse BF Squonk Mod and Mech Mod Safety

It seems like squonking has really taken off within the last year and even more so in just the last several months. If you’re not familiar with squonking, it requires a device that has a squeeze bottle inside of it with a tube leading up to the 510 pin. You also need a special squonking RDA, which has a hole in the 510 so that you can push e-juice up into the atomizer.

Hardware Review: Pax Juul

I purchased the Pax Juul starter kit myself. It comes in a nice little package with two boxes. One package has the pods and the other box has the Juul and the USB charger.

You can get a starter kit for $49.99 which comes with everything I just mentioned, as well as 1-year warranty.

For the average person looking to get off smoking, there’s not a lot that needs to be said about the Juul. You plug in a pod and hit it. It’s draw-activated using a pressure sensor, which means all you need to do is take a drag and it turns on. There are no buttons to press.

But if you’re interested in the technical details, let’s really dig in.

Atomizer Review: Asvape Cobra Sub Ohm Tank

The Asvape Cobra was sent to me for the purpose of this review by They sell it for $37.99

This is a 24mm sub ohm tank created by Asvape. I took a look around their website and I’ve learned that the “A” and the “S” in Asvape stands for American Standard, which is interesting since they are in China. But I guess we’re their target market. They’ve been in business for about 7 years according to their Facebook page. They sell three different mods and two different atomizers – one of those atomizers is this Cobra Tank.

So let’s take a look at it.

Hardware Review: OBS Sub Engine

OBS Engine Sub Tank – 2 Winners sent the OBS Sub Engine to me for free for the purpose of review.

You can pick up the OBS Sub Engine from for $31.00

OBS calls this a “tribute to the classic” referring to the original OBS Engine which was their very popular rebuildable tank. The OBS Engine Sub is a non-rebuildable tank that uses replaceable coil heads. So does it live up to the hype of its predecessor?

Let’s check it out!

Cigpet Eco12 First Impressions

About a week ago I received the Cigpet ECO12 for review from

I opened it the day I got it and I’ve been vaping it non-stop (about a week now). It’s an awesome tank.

This is appears to be very similar to other very high-wattage tanks like the Smok TFV12 and from what I’ve been hearing, it performs nearly identical. I don’t own a TFV12, so I can’t say for sure. The Cigpet ECO12 comes from Cigpet, which is a sister company of iJoy, so it might be more similar to iJoy’s Maxo V12.

I’m almost positive all of these guys are using the same coils. They even use the same naming conventions, such as T12, Q4, and X4.

The design is a little different than the rest, but the one big difference here is that this tank will also support T14 and T16 coils. Yup. that’s up to 16 coils in one coil head. The T16 can handle up to 400 watts.

That’s crazy!

The T14 and the T16 weren’t included with the tank but that’s ok because I don’t even have a device that can fire 400 watts! Does anybody? The only device that I think can do it is the Smok Power Engine (did this ever come out? I can’t find it anywhere and Smok took their page down from their website). The iJoy Maxo Quad mod can do 315 watts, so that’s closer.

Anyway, these coils can handle 400 watts if that’s something you’re interested in.

I’ve been using the T12 coil, which has been working great. Tons of vapor at 200 watts and the flavor is pretty damn good.

It’s also comes with a really cool resin drip tip, which Cigpet says are unique to every person. None are alike due to the unique manufacturing process.

It’s on pre-order right now from for $34.90, which seems like a great deal to me. That’s about $15 less than Smok’s TFV12, so if it is indeed nearly the same thing, you might as well get the Cigpet.

Full review coming soon!
