December 2022 Pods Ranked video is here. As always I’m sorry this took so long. Lots of really really good pods this year. It’s getting harder and harder to find HUGE differences. All the pods in the top 5 vape great. I feel confident in these rankings for anyone looking to quit smoking.
I can’t believe how much better the Luxe XR is than the og LUXE. Vaporesso really has a great MTL vape here AND restricted DL. Flavor rules, capacity rules, battery rules. Some things I don’t love, but I’m willing to look the other way on a few of ’em because again… the 0.8 MTL vape consistently rules.
It’s almost like Mission XV designed this ASTRO mod specifically for me. I Love the handfeel more than words can really describe. It’s not as customizable as the Billet Box is, but it still has some panels that can be replaced, and probably the battery door. The ASTRO is a win all around.
Crazy difficult to acquire and pricier than you think
I won’t say it again after this, but the AEGIS L200 is big. It does also fit dual 21700 batteries, so it kinda has to be big and I think the core AEGIS fans will be just fine with it. It’s an Aegis, not much else to say, GeekVape kinda killed it on this thing.
The tank isn’t my favorite, but the M coils are quite nice.
The Ether Boro RBA (by Suicide Mods x Vaping Bogan) does kinda rule. As I said there is a lot to love about this RBA for BORO tanks. I under-wicked it multiple times in the restricted lung mode, but managed to nail it pretty well for the MTL. The MTL on this is more flavorful than some others.
Bums me out this is basically impossible to get into a standard BORO tank.
The Galex just looks cool. The Nano is too heavy and the stick is too… THICC. Not TOO thicc… just very thicc. Really really nice vape for about a week and a half. Crispy nice flavor, smooth med / tight MTL Draw After that the mileage will vary.
At the end of the day, the flavor on the Damn Vape Atemporal RBA for boro is undeniably good and the overall vape is undeniably good. The capillary wicking action of the mesh rolls is easily on par with using SS cables as wick. I had to FLUFF UP my cotton on top for this to really perform well. It keeps up, crackles, and tastes real great.
Direct lung / restricted lung only and honestly, I may never use those airflow inserts ever again, they make the whole airflow needlessly turbulent.
The Pulse just arrived at a bad time for me. It was right before all the strike nonsense happened. I’m glad I finally got to spend some much-needed time with the Vandy Vape Pulse 0.5. It’s the best PULSE so far and it kinda sets the benchmark for an “entry-level” BORO device.
I just want to say, with the exception of the… ugh.. leaking that I had, the SMOK NOVO 2X Vapes like a dream. Truly like a dream. The Novo 2x vapes so much like a dream that even with the leaking, I still want to re-up on these coil heads.
VooPoo Vinci Se was honestly just 2 months of gush. Pretty sure the “throaty” thing was in my head, but it kept happening so frequently. Anyway, it’s whatever, Obviously I dig this thing. It’s not FLAWLESS but… If I had had this in 2009 when I was still smoking cigarettes? Game over man.
