    Product description on website:

    A ripe sweet ice cold malaysian mango juice

    Reviewer Notes/First Impressions:

    At first impressions, it tasted just like Ola’s Paddle Pop Mango and Orange ice tubes that I normally get from our local supermarkets on an hot day. It smells and tastes exactly like that.

    As this is a one-shot that I bought from Flavourworld SA, you are required to add VG (Vegetable Glycerin), PG (Propylene Glycol) and nicotine if needed. I added the VG, PG and 3mg of Nicotine to make 100ml through a ejuice calculator and it was mixed at 60VG / 40PG, recommendation says 70/30 but I have no issues with it being at 60/40.

    However, vaping it is a different story. Well, not completely different but there is very little ice and I was expecting more of a blast in my face type of ice. It’s impressive enough, it’s quite sweet but for those who love their sweet ripe mangos, this is for you. If you let it go to “dry burn” stage, it doesn’t taste that good. For those with RTA’s, I would suggest you don’t let the tank empty half way as it tends to give off a funny taste (almost like dry burning, think that’s the juice burning off the coils).

    I tested it with 3 different tanks and mods. An RDA is not so bad as I was using a Pico Squeeze 2 with the Coral 2 RDA – it’s alright but not ideal really. Then I used my OFRF Gear RTA – this is a tank that does not like high wattage – it was great at first then started tasting funny, and after a few vapes, it came back normal so I don’t think it’s suitable for RTA’s either.

    I just tested the new MAAT tank from Voopoo and after 3 tanks, I have to say I am really impressed with the new tank design. Flavour is very consistent all the way through. This is a subohm tank that has interchangeable coils and stays submersed in the tank with the juice so I think this juice is suited to subohm tanks.

    It is certainly a perfect ADV (All Day Vape), I can vape several tanks of this DIY juice and not feel queasy afterwards.

    Rating: 9/10

    Conclusion: Would I buy it again? Yes definitely!!!

    Great Review @RainstormZA ! Personally, if the juice is "fussy" like that, I'll give it a skip

    Thanks @Dela Rey Steyn

    Yeah unfortunately, as some would say it's heavy on the coils. I think that's what they meant, I'm not sure. For me, personally, I was a bit miffed when I got that funny taste and thought wtf is going on. This was supposed to be a good tasting juice, more apparent on the first few vapes. By the time the tank was half-way, the funny taste presented itself again and I thought what the hell, lets see what happens. It does gradually drop flavour as the juice level drops so you need to keep on refilling it.

    With the Voopoo MAAT tank, you never have to worry about the flavour dissipating or tasting funny after a couple of draws.

    It's just one of these juices that are probably more suited to a sub-ohm tank, more than an RDA and RTA. I have a Ello tank but need new HW coils for that to test it too. I also have an iJust S tank too, I probably should test it as well today as I do have some spare coils for it.

    BUT from personal experience, I believe it could be the addition of sweetener that causes this effect, which is why I adjusted my private Butterscotch Mints recipe to exclude super sweet and since then I've not had a tasting issue with it. And also to remember that every juice reacts differently to different tanks as well, I've had a lot of sub-ohm tanks, rda's and at least I think 2 RTA's so kind of working off from my personal experience.

    To cap it off, it's still a great juice.

    I am on the other end with sweetener. I have tried a few recipes that do not have it and after tasting it, had to add a few drops. After adding sweetener the vape is smoother and brings the flavour out for me. I don't like too much sweetener because then that is all you taste.

    Yeah everyone is different. I find that if I add Sweet Cream, it does actually improve the flavour without needing to add sweetner in. Apparently I've read somewhere on the forums that either Vanilla Swirl or Marshmallow adds sweetness to a recipe too. I got to test that theory.

    Sad to say, the iJust 2 failed the test - it's going into the bin. It's a horrible tank to use. The flavour comes out muted. I've tried all the tricks in the book and it doesn't even come close to the MAAT tank. I ran the MAAT tank at 40w, and the ice factor became too much for me so I dropped it back to 30W, which was a much more comfortable and tasty vape. It's a great sub-ohm tank for flavour but for those who prefer their restricted DL draw, this is not for you. It's a very airy tank - it's like breathing through a PVC pipe instead of a drinking straw.

    Expect a separate review for it shortly. I still have to test the other two coils that come with the MAAT tank.

    I would compare my MAAT tanks draw similar to my Zeus Dual draw. Love the flavor on this MAAT! Actually makes a juice thats not hectically sweet in my normal RTAs taste as if i added 10 drops sweetner at around 70 watts, but if you lower the watts the sweetens goes away.

    Just went to the The Iron Lung Vapory. Got my batteries.

    Loved the steampunk style decoration! The door looked awesome!

    What are the chances that I can add a mesh coil to my rta's?

    It would depend on the deck I suppose. I saw people using mesh to make "regular" coils on Facebook. Not sure how it performs though...

    I was just digging through my digital album on my PC, looking for my old aquarium tank photos to show my uncle (he's visiting for two nights) when I found this.

    Oh my!!! Those were the good old days! @Stroodlepuff @Gizmo a quick look down memory lane of your old range juices - do you still have them?

    Cool pic @RainstormZA !
    They still have those three flavours
    I suppose they might have been reformulated slightly over the years.

    Yeah @Silver! I immediately went to see if they were and I think I may just buy a few for UK. I've forgotten what the Raspberry Rush tastes like, it was certainly more than a year ago.

    No. Strangely I feel nothing but sadness for leaving this beautiful countryside.

    But I sure like hell will not miss the winter, got a feeling it's going to be a bad one. We've already got frost so early. The mists are rising up from the river after 10pm.

    I actually can't wait to see the kids reaction as I've crocheted them winter jerseys. They got something to remember me by.

    Nope, my aunt says it's nice and warm, they're wearing shorts, flip-flops and t-shirt. You do realise that I've been there before so I have experienced the weather. Pretty much like right now in Mooi River. When I left in May, it was warming up and we sat in the sun for an hour.

    But up North in Yorkshire, definitely a big chance of snow.

    My daughter is over there and she made a braai today. Hot weather the past couple of days and the whole of the winter was not much colder than winter in Cape Town either. Global warming due to all the electric cars they have over there being charged by coal fired power stations.

    Regards

    So I'm in JHB but will not be as active as I used to be here - cellphone is giving me issues. The night is much milder and not too cold.

    The kids loved their jerseys and the boy was so proud of wearing it. Sweet.

    Finally reached my destination- I’m now in Selby.

    Man, that was the longest flight of my life. I can’t remember getting any sleep - kept dozing on and off from Dubai and 5 hours to Selby from Heathrow.

    I got a little place, right where I’m about to start work at the office so it’s just a walk in the park.
