VIM Vape Mod & Vape Tank Kit - Slate
After a year I still love these things - by John, 16 August 2019
I now have 2 VIM and 1 Wee VIM and only use these devices. I typically only use the Wee yin when I'm going for a night out, it's pretty unnoticeable in my pocket beside my phone and keys, also it's really not got the power for an all day vape although charging is quick.
I bought my first VIM a year ago and the second 8 mths ago, I usually rotate my VIM each day, charging 1 while I use the other, they both still last a full day with normal use, proving these batteries are still good well after 6mths of use.
I did find that I was going through coils pretty quickly, 1 or 2 a week until the only ejuice flavour I liked, real coffee, was discontinued so moved to unflavoured juice. Using unflavoured juice makes the coils last literally months, I find now the coils rarely burn out they just start leaking which is now my indication I need a new one.
Interestingly the center tubes cracked several months ago on both tanks which didn't seem to be a problem until today when one tank completely disintegrated, the center tube broke apart and the plastic at the top split. I fly frequently at least once a month, long haul with a lot of connections, so I'm guessing my tank gets a lot more stressed due to the pressurization than most users, which may be the reasons for the cracking.
That being said I think for the price, the fact it satisfys my cigarette craving, the ease of and low maintenance of the device the fact that you get at least 6mths use out of it you can't go wrong :)
Just ordered another VIM and WEE and replacement tanks :)..............................JAC Vapour: Thanks for the review, and glad you are enjoying the device. The tanks material actually got updated around 6 months ago to a more resilient material, in fact the tank is now made from PES, which is a very new medical grade engineering plastic, with similar properties to PEI if you've heard of that. So the tanks should now cope with anything you throw at it.
Another impressive bit of JAC kit - by Jim, 6 August 2019
I used to use mods and tanks but they were getting cumbersome to carry around and charge/change so moved to the much easier but (previously) lesser performing "pod" style devices. I've had a few, including those that are continually rated the best by various websites etc (always seems to be the same, slick, good-at-PR companies that come out on top there).
Well, they're not, because i'm pretty sure this one must be: Battery life is sensational for something so small. Flavour comes from the (almost always) excellent turbo s coils. Build quality as ever is impressive- rugged, solid and simple. Really like the placement of the button which makes a whole load of sense once you've started using it.
Only improvements I'd suggest is an option to increase tank size within regulations, and charging jack on side somewhere it could be stood up.
Well done on another impressive bit of JAC kit.
Very good, but with a few faults - by Jack, 21 July 2019
It's great if you use the refillable tank I've not had a single issue yet out of the time I've used it! No leaks and the coils last a while
● Its easy to refill and mess free
● Coils last long and easily replaced
● Nice little design and easy to fit in the hand and pockets
● I've talked to Jac about this but the pods are sub-par at best, they leak often, burn out quickly and gargle alot, which is frustrating as I like the ease of them. Also the price is a bit hit and miss and they need more flavours, they're not always filled fully and some arrive absolutely soaked in e-liquid heres a tip if you're having the same issue and they should say this but store the boxes upside down, the mouth tip downwards otherwise they flood and become unusable! This really should be stated in the instructions or on the page. They worked better when stored like that.
● Battery life seems to vary I vape the same amount every day it seems off, it only lasts 5 hours which is really odd but its meh
● it's a bottom charging device which are terrible I've got a place that allows me to stand ot up otherwise if it's on its side it floods and leaks!
Apart from all those it's really good and a handy little cheap device!.................JAC Vapour: Thanks for the constructive feedback, and actually the outer box the individual packs come in, states the direction to store, so you are right it should be on the actual individual boxes as well. WE are working on a new travel system to prevent leaks from the air pressure. Also you other points have been mentioned before and we already have a list of things we'd like to do for the updated device next year at some point.
