    This is not a full review, I justed wanted to see for myself what the fuss is about... Thanks TVI for letting me pop in.

    Excellent vapor production. But it just tastes of grape jam and a bit of toast, I don't even get a hint of Peanut Butter... I've tried it, but I won't buy it

    Those of you who have bought it or tried by someone else, let me hear your thoughts on it

    @Chanelr I actually prefer this kind of review. Just don't have time anymore to read through long reviews.

    So some juices I will do like this (the ones I will just taste in the shop with a short and sweet) but full reviews will remain in place l don't write thaaaaat much :)

    The exact thing is happening to me today (and still happening now) on my old iPad with Safari browser @Chanelr
    Out of interest, what browser is on your phone that was doing this?

    PS - have had to resort to the PC today to make any posts

    Review time..
    This week there will be quite a few.

    Juice Name: Appelkosie
    Manufactured By: Drip 'n' Go
    Flavour Profile: Sweet apricot candy.
    Packaging: 150ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 3mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 25PG/75VG

    This juice was sent to me from Hannes at Vapeboratories for review purposes.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    This juice falls under the Candy Range from Drip 'n' Go and is also available in Nic Salts. The design of the label is nicely designed with 'paint' dripping and a silhouette image of a mod being dripped. The logo is also standing out boldly. Flavour is visible along with all warning signs.

    And for those who it matters, the initial amount of juice is 100ml but you get 50ml FREE so that gives you a whopping 150ml for the price of 100ml.

    With the finger tasting test I got a very sweet, but very strong apricot flavour and experienced a slight throat irritation.

    With inhale I got a oh so sweet taste of apricot blended with candy that is not too sweet.

    I was instantly taken back to my childhood days where you got the original (not the new ones, the original) apricot sweets. I believe the taste is pretty much identical. I haven't tasted a juice in a while that knocked me back to my childhood memories.

    Upon exhale I really didn't get much taste of the flavour just little hints of apricot here and there.

    Sadly, the only thing I do not like is the bottles. Reason for this, you are not able to easy fill a tank with the wide spout and I think it was more designed for guys that use RDA's. So, it would be really great to bring it out in a 60ml easy dripper for the guys that prefer to use tanks as I believe no one should miss out on this fantastic flavour.

    Would I buy a bottle again? I believe so.

    Devices/Setup Used :
    Vaporesso Swag Kit with a Wasp Nano RDA
    Coilart Dpro 133 with Dpro RDA (dual coil)

    Quick but very important announcement.

    The Vaping Chanel will not be accepting any new review requests until further notice.

    The reason for this is that I am fully booked with reviews and just want to get ahead again.

    I would personally like to thank each and every manufacturer, shop and person who has been on this journey with me for the past 5 months.

    PS. Everyone is tagged on Facebook and Instagram posts.

    thank you post.jpg

    The Arcus All-in-One was sent to me from Juan @Twisp for review purposes.

    Please note this is an MTL tank.

    Twisp Arcus- Image 1 (Product).jpg
    Twisp Arcus - Image 2 (Whats in the box).jpg

    Pros :
    - Stainless Steel and coated in a durable titanium finish.
    -5 different regulated power settings
    - Mouth Piece Cap included for travel and storage
    - Easy to use

    Cons :
    - Leakage
    - Device doesn't stay on selected power setting
    - Real mission when you want to replace the seals

    The Tank and Coils:
    -1.8Ω Organic Cotton (MTL / Vertical l / Bottom Airflow)
    -Kanthal Wire (Surface Treated / Grade 1)
    -Push-In Coil design that seals the Tank - allowing for easy coil changes.
    - Large refill gaps at the top

    In Conclusion:

    I don't like the leakage through the airflow, to prevent this you need to close the airflow completely and keep the device upright at all times. Although I have seen this mentioned in product overviews, I really do not like it.

    When the device is fully charged, depending on usage the battery life should last you roughly 3-5 days.

    I only recently discovered that you can actually control the wattage on this device. It can be set to either 9, 10.5, 12, 13.5 or 15W by pressing the power button three times.

    Twisp recommends using their (VG PG 50:50) Twisp® Flavours with a nicotine content of 8 to 18 mg/ml, but I have used other MTL flavours in the device to check it out and did not have any issues or affect on the coil that I have noticed.

    Juice Name: Screamo Mango (with Ice)
    Manufactured By: Monsta Vape
    Flavour Profile: Sweet and tangy flesh of ripe mango
    Packaging: 60ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 3mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from Shaun @Pho3niX90 at The Vape Den for review purposes.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The juice comes packed in an awesome little box, with the cutest little monsters I have ever seen. Each box design has its own unique monster that matches to the bottle. Visible on the bottle is the flavour and all necessary warning signs, including the batch number and best before date.

    It is also recommended to shake the bottle well before use.

    With the finger tasting test I got a sweet but also tangy taste of mango with a great amount of mint, it's not your average ice taste but really more like a spearmint type of effect.

    The inhale is a sweet, juicy mango, which then blooms into a semi tangy flavour with just the right amount of mint. I think the balance of sweet, tangy and mint is greatly executed and none of the 3 profiles overpower each other.

    Upon exhale the mint emerges even more and peaks during at time to create a cold, fruity cloud blast on your palate. This one will leave you wanting more, as it is a very refreshing flavour especially in this heat.

    This is officially my new favourite ADV and I prefer it on the RDA for max mint and mango flavour, if you prefer to taste the mango more I would suggest using it in a sub-ohm tank as it somehow suppresses the mint a bit.

    If you like mango with a kick, this one is definitely for you.

    Would I buy a bottle again? Absolutely.

    It is official, The Vaping Chanel has partnered with The Vape Den...

    No, I will not be disappearing and will still be very active on my own as usual...

    The only change is on The Vape Den website (www.thevapeden.co.za)...

    In the market to buy a new juice, but you are not sure if you will like it? Not to worry, if a juice has been reviewed by me you will see a little tab "TVC Review", and under it you will find the full review with my own and unique rating system as always.

    Hopefully this will make it a bit easier when you want to try out a new juice!

    @Pho3niX90 thanks for the awesome opportunity

    Yeah it quickly gets out of hand, you put so much effort into this thread - and I respect that. You should consider going video, perhaps even live stream with minimal to zero editing. This way you cut out the writing time. You could do a show and cover more than one item in a show. Similar to what GrimmGreen is doing in his "Vlog Day" videos.

    Thanks for the advise it is really appreciated, but the writing and designing and the star ratings is what is currently making me unique between all the reviewers at the moment and I would really like for it to stay that way for a little while longer :)

    It's simple to do multiple reviews a day and I have considered it, but I believe each juice should have it's own little sunshine on the day that the review is posted. If it makes any sense?

    You are completely right about the "own little sunshine" comment! However many people are doing written juice reviews in this forum also. You put so much effort into this, and I can see the creative nature of what you do - its very cool.

    Go video, and open yourself up to a larger platform. You are South African - and there is not enough South African video content, especially female. You will grow extremely quick.

    Juice Name: Trinity
    Manufactured By: Northern Craft Vapes
    Flavour Profile: Kiwi fruit, white grapes and strawberry
    Packaging: 30ml Glass Bottle or 120ml Easy Dripper (60ml coming soon)
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3, and 6 mg (120ml - 3mg)
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from Mike at NCV for review purposes. This review was done on the 120ml 3mg.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The bottle come packaged in a nifty little box and both designs on the box and bottle look the same. Trinity written big, bold and in red and this stands out a lot on the white. All the other necessary information you will need is also on the both the bottle and the box.

    With the finger tasting test I get the sweet taste of kiwi, grapes and strawberry. No throat burn.

    With inhale, you will get some sweetness first from the kiwi, grapes and then strawberry on your palate. It's a fine blend of flavours and the flavours don't overpower each other.

    With exhale you don't have that much of the fruity taste, but there is little cheeky glimpses of the flavour on your palate

    I prefer this flavour in the tank to maximize the fruit flavours and in the RDA's for maximum vapour release.

    This one should really be added on the ADV list for summer. The only differrence flavour profile wise between Trinity and Trinity Ice is literally the ice.

    But for me personally, if I had to choose between Trinity and Trinity Ice, the ice version wins hands down.

    Would I buy a bottle again? Not sure.

    Excellent review @Chanelr !

    I think this is juice is one of the most underrated juices on the market. Just wish it would be available in 100/120ml bottles. It goes very quickly when it’s your ADV
