This is where pods from the “PODS RANKED” videos end up getting retired. These are the “Hall Of Fame” pods in my humble opinion. Some are older than others and when something becomes too outdated for modern times. I’ll most likely retire it from the hall of fame to some sort of… “Classic Legend” status or something. Nothing has reached that point yet so i’ll cross that bridge when we get there. Sorry YouTube is lame and age restricts my videos.
The Wenax K1
The Wenax K1 never really got it’s own video video, it was included in my first ever “Pods Ranked” video. This is truly an amazing pod. I’ve run it with high VG liquids ( 80% VG ) with no issues. It will work with salt-nic or freebase. 50/50 pg/vg will also work flawlessly. The pods are crispy and nice, I get a good long life from them.
The Wendax K1 is slick, lightweight and pocketable ( and hands free ). It has a manual button and airflow activation. The manual button can be turned off independently of the airflow switch to help prevent miss-fires in your pocket or bag.
If there is one pod system I vouch for above most others, it’s the Wenax K1. This review was originally recorded in 2021, but it still holds up.
The VooPoo V-Thru / V-Mate
Again, much like the Wenax K1 the V-mate / V-Thru kinda never really got it’s own full video. It was included with another VooPoo (Drag X ) product. Much like the K1 this is a pod system I will vouch all day for. The draw and flavor are delightful. The form factor is slick and techy.
The V-Mate is the more simple version of the V-THRU, the V-Mate lacks a few bells and whistles from the V-THRU version including the display screen. The pods are compatible across the V-Thru / V-Mate series and they vape really really well.
The bigger battery is also a huge plus IMO. This was originally recorded in January 2021, but it still holds up.
The Uwell Caliburn A3 / A3s
This is where the once mighty Uwell Caliburn A2s stood. It’s been updated by Uwell to the A3 and the a3 is every bit as good as the A2 was and is compatible with many more batteries. It’s pretty clear that Uwell abandoned the A2 / A2s brand and I have no idea why.
Pretty ok battery life, but the real joy of the Caliburn is in the quality of the vape. It’s coming to a point where I could lose all my vape gear, and be fine with a Caliburn for a WHILE. Top tier flavor and performance imo. I get more crackle from an A3s coil head than I get from any other manufacturer and that goes a long way with me.
XROS 3 / nano / mini / series
The Xros 3 series of coils heads have proven themselves to me more times than I can count. Very long lasting, very good tasting and consistent, consistent, consistent. They have a wide range of OHMs and the 0.7ohm are my jam right now. Despite who battles for the number one position in my pod rankings, the Xros 3 is something i’m grabbing for more often than others.
The Mini battery is a stellar size and the Nano battery (i’m biased because I worked with Vaporesso on a special edition battery, which I would have never done had I not believed in the product) The nano battery slaps and is a rad size. Shorter and wider than most.
