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.
I’m hoping what I’m saying makes sense and I hope it’s communicated through my videos. This is how I review pods, I really do believe in spending time with a coil / pod before I can pass judgment on it, I’ve always been like this since “back in the day” of 2015 and 2016.
GrimmGreen reviews were always late because I liked to spend time with a product. Nothing has changed as we get closer to 2023. I still want to spend time actually evaluating a product. Sorry, not sorry. I vape pods like crazy and I’m very hard on them. I hold pods to a VERY high standard.
I don’t know what happened lately but the VLOG just kept getting longer and longer and longer and longer. Last week was just a normal VLOG and it was 4 HOURS!!! … This insanity has to stop. The VLOG needs to be streamlined and tightened up.
No lollygagging, no more hour-long struggle builds. We’re runnin lean here at GrimmGreen Industries. Normal segments, of course. Beer, Retro, Mail, Liquid, (SHORT) news, Music. Old school dawg. Also, we build a mesh genesis for the retro vape. It’s awesome.
I feel like the LUXE X is a rough offering from Vaporesso. They nailed a lot, and also missed a lot. These coil heads just… need to be better. A 0.8 that doesn’t to MTL and a 0.4 that does a VERY VERY restricted direct lung just doesn’t hit with me.
At the end of the day it vapes fine, the flavor is good and Vaporesso is on the right track with a few things. The Luxe X just needs better coil heads and I honestly think it would slap.
The Vaporesso OSMALL 2 pod isn’t going to be a long-lasting, durable “buy it for life” type of pod. But it is lightweight, hands-free, and vapes mostly good. I’ve never really said this about a pod before, but I think this OSMALL2 would actually benefit from a thinner 50/50 PG/VG or salt-nic liquid.
It’s just crazy middle of the road, but obviously better than smoking a combustible cigarette. There are certainly much MUCH worse pod choices you could make.
Brutal sunburn bro. The Vaporesso P60 kinda rules. The PT80s is still fine, and honestly vapes IDENTICAL to the PT60. Just something about that lightweight handfeel on the PT60 I guess. Also, traveling has always and will always make me gravitate toward internal battery mods for some reason. The fewer chargers I need to bring the better and the PT60 charges on a USBC cable.
Don’t smoke, Vape.
Am I wrong for wanting the Vaporesso X-Mini to stand on end? It absolutely should and it totally doesn’t and that is crazy obnoxious IMO. The coil heads themselves (X35 Coil) vape really very nice IMO. The airflow kinda overall sucks, but I dig hard on the flavor. Not much else to love about the X-Mini except maybe the battery life.
Going back the OG Gen did have a slight “Plasticy” feel as well. I know people are going to ask about the 510. I know the OG had a press-fit 510 and on this one, I have no idea of how to look for that. I’ve yanked and put stress on it. Seems to be holding up. Seem like more time will tell on that. So I’ll keep rocking this as a daily and let you know.
Otherwise, I said what I said about the Gen 200W and 80W. Kinda meh, kinda fine. The GTI Coil heads are really where it’s at with these. You can get those in other kits as well tho. I still think they are both really really boring looking and feeling.
I wasn’t expecting any surprises with the Vaporesso XROS NANO, but here we are. This is essentially a square version of the XROS2 ( same compatible pods ), but the XROS Nano does this “pulsing” thing that none of the other pods do. It’s not a dealbreaker really, but it’s something you will hear every time you vape. Less so with a restricted lung type of draw.
Otherwise, I like this for the same reason I mostly liked the other newer XROS2 and XROS Mini.
As I said in the video, I shot this at the end of November 2021. Everything I said still stands, and I feel the same way about the Vaporesso XROS 2 and XROS Mini right now as I did then.
I did receive the XROS Nano recently and will be doing a separate video for that little number. I’m honestly not sure where the confusion came from, but I will be including the XROS2 and XROS mini in the next pod ranking video.
