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.
These really really really got off to a strong start man. The Target 200 got a solid week of use before I even opened up the Target 100. I started noticing little annoyances, and it really went downhill fast. The GTX coil heads I’m really into. I don’t remember them being quite this good.
Shame about the doors, shame about that platform on top. I’m not exaggerating when I say this 200w ( even now with its problems ) could have been a daily banger for me. Vaporesso killed it with that texture, the whole device feels awesome 9,000.
Every so often Vaporesso has a banger, this is that banger. I’m really into this Swag PX80 kit. It’s small and slick and powerful enough to run some GTX coil heads. Honestly, the real star of the show here is that coil head swapping system. It’s brilliant and works flawlessly. This is the most innovation I’ve seen in the world of sub-tanks since the inception of mesh coil heads.
Seemingly out of nowhere Vaporesso releases the Forz RDA? I’m sorry, my mind is being blown seeing an RDA from Vaporesso in 2020 / 2021. More than that, I’m kind of shocked this is a banger of an RDA.
I know the deck isn’t completely original, but it works really very well and is as simple as it gets for building and wicking. Honeycomb airflow on the FORZ RDA feels really hyper-smooth. Borderline “spongy” feeling.
It’s certainly not the best RDA ever made, or even made this year. For the price, you are absolutely getting a banger.
The XIRON is going to be a little sleeper device. It’s real simple and un-assuming, but vapes REALLY well. As I said in the video i’ve been going back and forth between The XIRON and the Hita Ink and they are insanely evenly matched in their good vape experience. It is honestly kind of a banger.
GTX Coils vape very well and are fairly reliable. Coil head life has been ok, Sometimes a GTX will last for 60ml of liquid… sometimes less, your mileage might vary. For the most part, I find them enjoyable.
Count how many times I said GeekVape in this review. Because I honestly lost track. At the end of the day this vapes great. The single 18650 battery life at 60+ watts might be less than impressive, and that rubber nubbin for the USBC actually drives me crazy and I refuse to fix it.
It honestly bums me out that Vaporesso went down this road, rather than being the innovators I have seen them be in the past.
The Vaporesso Luxe PM40 is one of the products that Vaporesso does have a PMTA accepted for. Which I actually explains a lot about this particular devices sylings. As I said in the video, I personally really enjoy the loose / open MTL vape from the 0.8ohm coil heads, but it isn’t objectively good or smooth or versatile airflow.
Otherwise the size is great, obviously a popular design. The colors and finishes are a little all over the place. I like this blue one I have, but that’s kinda it. The others are more strange and this orange one looks MUCH better on the box.
There are better products out there, and there are much much worse products out there. Though the LUXE pm 40 might be one of the only types of these devices left on the market in the United States. I will say I still expected more from Vaporesso than a Nord-alike.
We will be going through many of the regular segments this week including Beer, Retro Vaping, Liquid Tasting and more. Got a little bit of mail this week, got an old school HIGH END retro vape this week! Got a liquid tasting that one of my patrons sent me. Of course there will be some news and advocacy in there as well, including defending flavors… yet again.
Gates open, come on in !
Timestamps / Podcast and all relevant links will be down below
This vlog got a little choppy in the beginning due to Spectrum being just awful. It improves directly following the news segment. I do also have it in Podcast form down belowfor those that can’t deal with the choppy level of the video.
We will be going through many of the regular segments this week including Beer, Retro Vaping, Liquid Tasting and more. Got some mail this week that i’m very excited about, There is actually A LOT of mail this week. Of course we will have some news and advocacy. Kentucky is joining the ranks of places like Vermont, Mass and California in making vaping more expensive than smoking! so that’s a thing
Spending some time today with the new Vaporesso arsenal of mod-pod-aio things. I’m a fan of Vaporesso overall, as I said not just because of their products, but because they care about and directly contribute to the vape community as a whole and our fight against bad legislation.
