Pugsley’s Bare naked review of the Vaporesso Switcher 220 Mod with NRG Tank

To be fair…..it was always gonna happen eventually, if you keep pushing your luck further and further, someone is gonna get bitch slapped…….OBS got away with it with the Bat mod…..Then Vaptio downright took the piss with the Super Bat and Wall Crawler mods…..boundaries were crossed….innocence was questioned….and when the Franchise Copyright Infringement Police (totally …

Pugsley’s accumulation of an amalgamation of vape station….stuffs…..(PRICE CODE EDIT!)

Chances are…..if you’re a vaper who is reading this review….you are already lost….and when I say lost, I don’t mean done for….I mean that you are so far down the rabbit hole of this foggy hobby of ours that even if you wanted to….you could probably never find your way out again.

You see….there are certain levels to being a vaper that myself….and you probably…have tumbled past without even noticing where one level ends..and another begins…until eventually you find yourself stumbling blindly through the thick custard rich smog utterly bewildered with only one burning question ever present in your mind….

Level 1 – The Reluctant Smoker – You smoke (urgh) ….but you don’t really want to, you know it’s killing you and you know that you are paying heavily with your hard earned cash for that privilege….you’ve tried an ‘electronic cigarette’ but it made you cough so it never really stuck…..although….it did taste nice…..

Level 2 – The Awkward Inbetweener – You have an ‘electronic cigarette’ that you use in the day but….when you are at home or out having a drink you might have the ‘occasional’ cancer stick because although you do enjoy this part time vape ‘fad’….it’s just not quite enough to keep you satisfied.

Level 3 – The Quitter – Congratulations, you have made the switch from coffin nails to a safer electronic alternative, you have found a liquid that you dig and you have powered through those awkward coughing weeks by battling those cravings as and when they arise simply by whipping out your ‘vape pen’ and having a little tootle puff on your 18mg peppermint liquid that only cost you a mere couple of pounds from your local newsagents.

Level 4 – The Shepherd encounter – You meet someone else that vapes, only they have a bigger pen than you, some may even have a box, and on this box there appears to be bigger tank….and out of this tank comes a cloud of the sweetest smelling Cumulonimbus that wisps past your nostrils peaking your intrigue and leaving your now chemical tasting peppermint liquid cowering in the corner smelling of nothing but cheap inadequacy.

Level 5 – The Upgrade – Your intrigue gets the better of you and you treat yourself to a new ‘toy’ …nothing too much, say a 50w variable wattage box mod and something called a ‘sub ohm’ tank…..and while you’re at it…..you might as well spend the extra ten pounds on a 30ml of that liquid that is named in such a way it could have literally come from your mother’s fun bag…what’s the sense in half assing it eh…..I mean….what’s the worst that could happen…..you go home, you follow the instructions in setting this thing up…and when you’re ready…. you take your first hit….and suddenly as the flavour of that sweet nectar hits your mistreated and tortured taste buds a vision of that Shepherd you met last week…suddenly appears before you….

And in an instant…you fully understand why that person with their little box of electronic wizardry…looked sooo fucking smug.

Level 6 – The Awakening – A tricky level this….I’d go as far as to say that the vast majority of vapers don’t make it past this point, what they have is ample, overkill probably….they have discovered what they think is the top tier in electronic smoking cessation…and as long as they have this…..why would they need anything else??…Pretty soon the residual cravings left over from smoking will be gone and so will this …..’Vaping’….thing…..however….a select few….are never happy, they know there must be more…….. these vapers have stumbled across the rabbit hole….and are peering into it….fearful….yet….utterly intrigued

They didn’t realise just how big this thing was…..after all……this was just to give up smoking…..wasn’t it?…..but….what if?

Ahh…the eternal question….”What if”…..just the slightest whisper of that literal dark magic has sparked the birth of a thousand catastrophic fuck up’s….’What if I just pressed that button that says don’t press?’ ……’What if I just hit him with this metal pipe a little bit?’ …….’What if I just smoked that little rock just this one time?’……..’What if I wore wore red trousers with a pink jumper?’ (okay you’ve gone too far now you need a fucking word with someone) …

“What if this little mod…wasn’t all there was?…. What if I just bought something a little more powerful?….What if I learnt to make my own coils so I didn’t have to spend money on pre-made’s?….What if I learnt to make my own e-liquid?? I could save a fortune!…..What if I bought a dripper and tried that instead?….What if……..what if…………….what if……..?

Level 7……YOU….probably…… you’re invested……you’re in so deep that this whole vape culture has become sooo much more than just a way of giving up smoking, this is a way of life, chances are you already have an arsenal of vaping equipment that could stock a small shop, and you wile away your hours making intricate coils that could pass off as jewellery and even your spare time is taken up concocting e-liquid recipes that could well be served as deserts in a michelin star restaurant……you watch videos….you read reviews (obviously) ….you go to vape expo’s…..and you might even have a part of your house dedicated to everything vape….your beloved ‘vape station’ – and whether you already have a vape station, or have just maybe started eyeing up that spare room, which currently houses a dusty exercise bike along with various other 90’s artifacts that were just ‘too good to throw away’ and because one day you ‘just might need them’ ……this review …..is entirely….for you….and do you know why?….

Pugsley’s miserable as sin review of the Kaees Solomon RTA

Now…I’m generally a happy kinda guy, I like to see the good in most things, so you’d think putting a face on something as inanimate as your vape set up would bring a smile to my face…? you know….it’s fun…you could name it…even converse with it if you were …erm…..lonely…or ……weird…? People have certainly done stranger things….I know I have…..maybe this isn’t the time or the place for that story though…..

It’s almost as if you are giving your vape gear a personality…a little pocket pal to take around with you and share all your adventures with as you frolic together with absolute gay abandon…

However……..this was not to be.

All will become clear……(It totally won’t …..has it ever…??…)

Pugsley’s relentless savagery review of the Geekvape Aegis 100w Mod

Better late than never as the saying goes, this review was actually supposed to have been done around 2 months ago, I’m not sorry though…and I’ll tell you why…. Like most people I instantly fell in love with the pictures that were posted of this heavy duty ‘Tonka Toy’ mod and it was literally seconds before I put my feelers out to try and snag one for review. Roll forward a week and I get the text message from DHL to let me know that my Aegis was out on the van and due for delivery THAT day…..exciting times you might think…..but then…

Nothing.

It’s one thing living with the torture of waiting on your vape mail not knowing which day it’s actually going to be delivered if it’s something you’re particularly looking forward to but….being told it’s being delivered THAT day….and that’s the last thing you hear?…….for 48…long….traumatic hours?……There are genuinely no words….

I caved….Obviously…..and got on the blower to these ‘Charlatans’ to see exactly….what the fuck they were playing at…

“Ah….yes Mr Foster….we have been expecting your call, unfortunately we did not have your number to let you know that….and I’m truly sorry to tell you this but……the DHL van was stolen…and your package with it”

I did of course politely explain that they had actually sent me a text message therefore did in fact have my number and could of told me 2 days earlier thus preventing me from having a near nervous breakdown, I also asked in a very friendly manner how it was possible to lose a whole van whilst on it’s delivery rounds and how I did indeed….hope that no one was hurt in said mishap….or….something close to that….

To further add fuel to this utter dismal affair the supplier that sent me the Aegis…and indeed every other supplier I review for…..had completely run out of stock by this point……The Aegis…it would seem….would just simply pass me by….

Until now…….. (you are by far the biggest drama queen known to man)

Pugsley’s huge and slightly nostalgic review of the Digiflavor Pharaoh RTA

It seems like almost a lifetime ago that I won the Pharaoh RDTA in a competition on ELR…..(it was 6 months ago you drama queen)….and was given the immortal words…”Can you write a review on your prize for us”…….

‘Erm……..OK…?’

I told the Mrs….’hey….they want me to right a review on that thing I won….and post it online….me…..write things….publicly’…..

You see….my Mrs is rather straight laced shall we say, and my online ‘comments’ and ‘meanderings’ on social media over the years previous had caused her and her family some………shall we also say……..’concern’ .

There really was only one way this was ever gonna go…..sideways…so it was with some trepidation that I posted the first Pharaoh review…

I blame my mother…..and possibly my therapist/Pub landlord.

Pugsley’s teeny weeny green teen review of the Vaporesso Tarot Nano Starter Kit

Everyone remembers their first, I certainly do….she was a short slim simple little thing with dark skin and one blue eye……always willing to work, rarely needed any kind of attention other than the odd caress of her fun button and in return she would always put out just enough….not too much…..but enough to keep you satisfied for five minutes until you were good to go again…..and again……and again…….a lot of stamina for such a small ego…..

Pugsley’s Super Heavyweight and multi tasking maniac review of the Joyetech Ocular C 150w TC Mod

“IT NEED’S TO DO MORE STUFF!” screamed the head of R&D over at the Joyetech Asylum…

“how do you mean?…” whispered the by now terrified electrical engineer from under his desk…

“NEVER MIND WHAT I MEAN!…STICK A FOOD BLENDER ON IT!…..AND A BLOW TORCH!…..AND A DVD PLAYER!……AND I WANT IT TO MAKE WAFFLES!….I LIKE WAFFLES!!!”….

“bu bu but it’s too small….you can’t possib….”

“NEVER MIND WHAT’S POSSIBLE!…..PEOPLE WANT MULTI GADGETS!…..PEOPLE LIKE TO BLEND STUFF!…..AND BURN STUFF!……AND WATCH STUFF!….AND MAKE WAFFLES!!……..AND LAST NIGHT I DREAMT ABOUT WAFFLES!!!

“o….kkkkk?”

At least that’s how I’ve heard it went over at Joyetech HQ when the R&D manager lost his final marble whilst coming up with their latest all singing, all dancing…all….cooking…Mod. Sadly however, the manager is no longer with us after the resulting meeting where as the engineers got together with several lawyers present and told him that it was actually impossible to fit a blow torch, a food blender, a DVD player which no one uses anymore anyway and a waffle iron onto a vaping mod…but he could if he wanted, have an MP3 player, A photo gallery and a pedometer…..

It didn’t go well.

Pugsley’s itsy bitsy teeny weeny iddy biddy review of the Wismec Reuleaux RXmini kit

The sheer power bursting from within it’s compact shell was breathtaking, it sits there stout and firm and ready to destroy anything you put in it’s path, it’s attitude only matched in size by it’s limitations…and it’s size far out weighed only by it’s sheer ferocity and ability to out perform any perception you may have of it ….

so why when your eyes gaze upon this mighty little sadistic beast….can you only muster the following response…

Pugsley’s overly engineered & uniquely twisted review of the Kangertech Dripez

And a very forthcoming and quite frankly frivolous welcome to you my cloud billowing mentalists on this oddly bizarre occasion when I take on the arduous task of reviewing something that at first glance can only conjure up the following reaction ……

“What the actual fuck…??”

And deservedly so, for today I gingerly present to you, with one eye brow raised, courtesy of my friends at https://www.cvapor.com/ ….The Kangertech Frankenperfumedrinkshatsquonkerstein……I mean Dripez….sorry..
