    came on to the vape scene not too long ago. Their pod vape was
    originally released as a closed system, but there’s recently been a
    change of plans. It now also takes refillable pods, utilizing a ceramic
    heating system for added longevity. The battery is 350 mAh and charges
    via micro-USB.



    The Vladdin RE is designed for nic salts but can be used with regular
    e-juice as well. It has a lightweight and sleek design that makes it
    convenient for travel. I’ve tested a few pod systems with ceramic coils
    but was never completely satisfied. Let’s see what the Vladdin RE
    offers…
    The Vladdin RE is extremely light. It weighs out to 20
    grams, which is only 6 grams heavier than the JUUL! That’s impressive,
    especially considering it’s a bit taller and wider. The device has a
    futuristic curvy design with defined edges. Its ergonomic shape sits
    well in your fingers.



    My Vladdin RE came with an elegent charcoal matte finish, but it
    comes in three other options including gold, rainbow and chrome. The
    overall construction is good. It doesn’t feel like a luxurious device,
    but maintains a nice balance between functional and stylish. It has an
    LED light that lights up when you vape but unfortunately there is no
    battery life indicator, one of its cons.Rincoe



    The refillable pods hold 1.5 mL of liquid, which is larger than most
    pod systems. The top cap comes off easily with a little squeeze to
    reveal a silicon plug. Once you remove the plug there are two fill
    holes, which work fine with unicorn bottles, but can get a little messy
    with droppers. When filling, be sure to use the side holes, not the
    chimney in the middle.



    The pods snap into the battery using a gold-plated magnet. It doesn’t
    make an audible click, but it does make a strong connection. They have a
    narrow window for liquid level detection. The mouthpiece feels nice on
    the lips and stays on tightly. It’s time to fill it up and have a
    vape.The Vladdin RE gives off a tight mouth to lung vape comparable to
    the JUUL, but with a little more restrictiveness. You can barely get
    away with a restrictive lung hit on it. A white LED light illuminates as
    you puff and it’s draw-activated, so no buttons to get confused with.
    It produces a consistent puff up until the very end before it cuts off.
    If you’re going to use this as your main device, it makes sense to buy
    two batteries — one to charge while the other is in use.



    The device offers a consistent vape — the pods always maintain a
    solid connection. It produces a pretty decent cloud too for its size.
    I’m really enjoying the flavor I get out of these ceramic coils. I tried
    it out with some 50 mg nic salt and it provided a great throat hit. I
    also tested it with some max-VG e-juice. It wasn’t as flavorful, but at
    least I didn’t get any dry or burnt hits. In my testing, it performed
    best with high-strength 50/50 blends, but it’s good to know it can
    handle pretty much any e-juice you can throw at it.
    The pod capacity
    is good too, considering I get almost a day out of one refill. The
    battery doesn’t get me through a full day, but it charges in less than
    an hour. The cut-off time seems a bit shorter than I’m used to, but you
    aren’t going to be taking huge puffs with high-strength liquids anyway.
    With lower-strength e-juice, you are going to end up chain vaping on
    this thing.



    I have been using the same pod for about a week now, and I haven’t
    noticed any drop off in flavor yet. It’s performing very strong for such
    a tiny device. The pods haven’t leaked either, aside from normal
    condensation. Aside from that, there has been no gurgling or spitback at
    all.u2022eney7485yyWEEEEDD
