Misleading Study Claims Teens Who Try E-Cigarettes Are Six Times More Likely to Become Smokers

A small study published in the Pediatrics medical journal concludes that American teens who use electronic cigarettes are about six times more likely to move on to tobacco cigarettes that youths who never tried the device.

Vapeonly Arcus Review

If you're looking for a tiny mouth-to-lung vaporizer for vaping on the go, the Vapeonly Arcus is right up your alley. Measuring just 104 mm from the top of the drip tip to the bottom of the battery, and 16.8 mm in diameter, the Arcus is by far the smallest new generation e-cig I have ever used. Advanced features like variable wattage/voltage, temperature control or juice flow control are really cool if you have the time and patience to learn how to use them properly, but the fact of the...

SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast Review

Last year, when I reviewed the SMOK TFV4, I remember referring to it as a beast of a tank, but now, after trying out the new TFV8 Cloud Beast, the old version seems pretty tame. Featuring by far the largest coil heads I have ever seen, a huge chimney and 6ml e-juice capcity, the TFV8 is designed to create monster clouds of vapor, but you're going to need a heck of a lot of power to get the best vaping...

Joyetech eGrip 2 Review

Tho original Joyetech eGrip was one of the first all-in-one vaping systems that combined both the vaporizer and the tank into a single unit, and paved the way for other manufacturers to release similar style devices aimed at all categories of vapers, from beginners to advanced. The recently released eGrip 2 builds on the success of its predecessor with a leak-proof top-filling system, higher power output and extra features, including a popular video game to help you pass the time on a slow...

Avocado 24 RDTA Review

Geek Vape advertises its new Avocado 24 tank as an RDTA, but to anyone that's not a total newbie when it comes to vaping, this thing is a Genesis-style atomizer. That makes it a blast from the past, because while 'Gennys' were quite popular at one point with vapers looking for a compromise between drippers and tanks, they kind of faded away once Rebuildable Tank Atomizers (RTAs) burst onto the scene. But Geek Vape seems to think Genesis atomizers can still be relevant today, and judging by the...

Wotofo Serpent Mini RTA Review

The Serpent Mini is a 22mm single-coil RTA made by a Chinese company called Wotofo. It's very small compared other RTAs I've tested in the past, and having gotten used to dual-coil setups, I really wasn't expecting very much from the Serpent Mini. But let me tell you, this little guy will surprise you. Not only is it very slick and easy to fit on a small single 18650 battery device, it also puts out lots of warm, satisfying vapor and amazing flavor. Wotofo has been in the vaping business...
