    Something a little bit out of the normal review again.

    This Anti-Theft Vape Bag was sent to me from Vape King Head Office for review purposes.

    This awesome design was proudly done by Sharri.

    Image 1 (Product)-1.jpg

    Pros :
    - Multiple slots for your vape devices, accesories and liquids
    - 2 Way Strap system (Wear as a sling bag or backpack)
    - Anti-theft zip system
    - Adjustable strap
    - Hidden back pocket for valuables
    - Power bank capabilities with an integrated USB Port
    - Front, Bottom and Sides are water resistant
    - 4 Colours available

    Cons :
    - For me personally it's a little bit on the small side to carry everything around that I would like to.
    - Some of the slots don't have a meaningful use (personal opinion)

    In Conclusion:

    It's a nice bag if you carry around minimal products, and your personal items are kept safe (although my wallet does not fit in the compartment). I like that you can also use a powerbank with the integrated USB Port. I also like the fact that you have 4 colours to choose from when picking a bag, I obviously went for the pink so that no one will ask me for it.

    Some might ask how the lock system works, below is an explanation.

    The bag doesn’t actually lock, the way the anti-theft system works is that the zips are hidden under the top layer and sides (You will see the fabric goes over the zip) this makes it impossible for someone to open the bag when it is attached to your body as the zips are basically hidden directly behind your back and if someone were to try and open the bag then you would immediately feel it so they would have to physically touch you to be able to get into the bag. The fabric is also cut resistant so they would not be able to slice the bag open.

    Juice Name: Jelly Monster
    Manufactured By: Wiener Vape co
    Flavour Profile: Red Jelly
    Packaging: 60ml and 100ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from @Pho3niX90 from the Vape Den for review purposes. This review is done on the 0mg.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The label for me is quite cute. With the name visible, a little monster, nicotine strength level, flavour profile and visible warning sign.

    With the finger tasting test I got a sweet taste of a red jelly and it is very similar to sticking your finger in a pack a jelly powder and eating it.

    With inhale I got the sweet taste of raspberry jelly (for me personally it's the taste I get) and what I really like is that it is not too sweet, and the amount of jelly that you taste is just enough to tickle your taste buds.

    Upon exhale it is one of those juices that the inhale and exhale taste is identical on your palate.

    I prefer the juice on the dual coil RDA.

    Would I buy a bottle again? I might.

    Devices/Setup Used :

    It's been a while since I did a review on Nic Salts, hut I finally have a device that I am happy to base my reviews on.

    Juice Name: Ahoy! (Salts)
    Manufactured By: Nomadic Elixirs
    Flavour Profile: A cool, citrus infused Pink Lemonade.
    Packaging: 18ml easy dripper bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 20 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 50PG/50VG

    These Salts were sent to me by Nomadic Elixirs for review purposes.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The Nautical Series Salts and MTL was launched on the 1st of December 2018. Now Ahoy! made my top 5 selections for Vapers Publication Issue 1 and I was so excited when I heard this flavour is launching for pod devices.

    I absolutely love the nautical design on the label. It has all the necessary information on. I would just maybe suggest increasing the flavour name itself a bit and the flavour description.

    Those of you who still haven’t noticed on the sides of the ship wheel there are two abbreviations: NM and MP. Which stands for the creator’s aka Naeem Moolla and Moosong Park.

    With the finger tasting test there is a very sweet citrus ice lemonade flavour. I really would not advise tasting the liquid too much.

    Upon inhale you will be greeted with a nice lemonade flavour, with a little citrus and the unknown red fruit that is mentioned. I still don't know what fruit it is. It’s not too sweet and no sourness with the added citrus.

    With exhale a refreshing cool lemonade flavour and fresh citrus taste that is left on your palate. Leaving you wanting more, excellent balance between the flavours.

    Will I buy a bottle again? Yes and yes.

    Device Used:
    Renova Zero Pod
    Geekvape Flint


    Please note :
    These products are specifically designed for use in pod base devices only. Please do not use Nic Salt e-liquid in your RTA's, RDA's, RDTA's or Sub-Ohm Tanks.

    Juice Name: Apple Mist
    Manufactured By: Avacare Vapes
    Flavour Profile: Taste of a crisp and icy cool mouthful of granny smith apple.
    Packaging: 120ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0 and 3mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 25PG/75VG

    This juice was sent to me from Avacare Vape for review purposes. This review was done on the 3mg. This juice falls under the Exoctica Range Sequel 2.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The label of the bottle is dark with green sides, with the name big and bold, along with the flavour on the side. It also shows the ingredients and a proper warning sign.

    With the finger tasting test I get a light sweet crispy taste of apples, then a rather odd taste and then a fair amount of ice.

    With inhale I did not experience any taste of apple, purely just a delicious amount of ice on my palate.

    Upon exhale I found that the crispy apple taste comes through alot on your palate and is not too sweet, which I personally prefer. With exhale the apple and ice is blended very well.

    I prefer this flavour in the tank, but for massive clouds on the RDA.

    Would I buy a bottle again? I'm not sure..

    Collaboration review time between The Vaping Chanel and Richardt.

    Juice Name: Sunset Mojito
    Manufactured By: Vape Dinner Lady
    Flavour Profile: Mint, lemon and more in this classic cocktail.
    Packaging: 60ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0,3 and 6 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from Dinner Lady South Africa for review purposes and to Richardt for promotional purposes.

    Our Opinion and Tasting Experience

    This juice falls under the Summer Holiday, Limited Edition range. The design of the label is green and summery which includes mint leaves and lime. Just by staring at it for a few minutes will put anyone in the mood to take a vacation and sip on some Mojitos. There is also a big warning sign and all other information you might need.

    Finger Tasting Tests

    TVC : I got the sweet sour taste of lime and a slight tickle of the mint. It does leave a little bitterness on your tongue and then the bitterness changes to mintiness.

    Richardt : Sweet initial taste with hints of mint, then the after taste is a strong lime, with a slight bitter taste.

    Inhaling

    TVC : Upon inhale I did not find much traces of the mint 'leaves' itself, but I did find that the cool lime taste comes through strongly. Not too sweet and not too sour, perfect spot in between.

    Richardt : Smooth mint taste, easy on the throat and cooling.

    Exhaling

    TVC : With the exhale the lime subsides a bit and the mint comes through alot more, I also find if you exhale through your nose the mint taste is very silimar to eat of piece of mint leave.

    Richardt : Strong lime taste, leaving a delightful tingle on the tongue, slightly harsh on the throat.

    Overall, it is a perfect balance between sweet and sour. Amazing strong complexity of flavour that is well balanced, and any lime lovers dream.

    Would I buy a bottle again?
    TVC : I believe so.
    Richardt : Yes.

    Colab.jpg

    Devices/Setup Used :
    Coilart Dpro 133 with Dpro RDA (dual coil)
    iJust 2 with Psyclone Citadel RDA (single coil)
    Richardt : Voopoo drag and hellvape drop dead.

    Juice Name: Ice Cold Craft
    Manufactured By: Sickboy 77 Eliquids
    Flavour Profile: Ice cold apple & lychee craft beer.
    Packaging: 60ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was sent to me from @Sickboy77 for review purposes.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The label has the background of some beer which is a cartoony effect and the name stands out very boldly in black. All other necessary information is written in white.

    With the finger tasting test I get a semi sweet/sour taste of apple and lychee, followed by a fair amount of beer flavour.

    With inhale I found that the lychee and apple hits a sweet spot, followed by the taste of craft beer and a light coolness. I don't think the flavours overpower each other and they compliment each other rather well.

    Upon exhale I really did not taste a lot of apple, but the sweet lychee, craft and ice feeling bounces off your palate. Again, not too sweet.

    I can't choose a preference between the dual coil RDA, single coil RDA or the tank.

    Would I buy a bottle again? I'm sure I will.

    Something a bit different on the wicks tonight.
    Good Boy is Wiener Vape Co's take on the original RY4 ejuice. ... The RY4 ejuice usually consists of 3 major flavors: Tobacco, Vanilla and Caramel.

    Have you tried it?

    Juice Name: Good Boy
    Manufactured By: Wiener Vape co
    Flavour Profile: Tobacco, Vanilla and Caramel.
    Packaging: 60ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 25PG/75VG

    This juice was sent to me from @Pho3niX90 at the Vape Den for review purposes. This review is done on the 0mg.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    The label for me is quite cute. With the name visible, a little doggie, nicotine strength level, flavour profile and visible warning sign. The label is also black and gold, which makes it stand out rather well.

    "RY4 is your reward, treat yourself with this great all day vape that never gets old."

    With the finger tasting test I get a sweet but authentic taste of tobacco, followed by a fair amount of caramel and I only get a hit of vanilla.

    With inhale I got the hints of vanilla on my palate blended with the sweet caramel and topped off with the rich tobacco flavour.

    Upon exhale it is one of those juices that go in reverse, first the tobacco flavour rolls off your palate followed by the sweet caramel. I did not find much of the vanilla present on exhale, I did however find a taste similar to honey.

    I prefer the juice the mesh coil disposable tank, but for me personally it's sadly not an ADV. I love the tobacco flavour, but it's a little bit on the sweet side.

    Would I buy a bottle again? I don't think so.

    Thank you.

    The reason I asked is because I have found for myself that my view of a juice often changes after a while. First vape versus first day or two versus a week or two later can be quite different. There are some juices I didn't like much initially and after a few days I grew to enjoy them a lot. And vice versa.

    No problem at all.
    Yeah I tend to agree with you, but with the amount I need to do I sadly don't have weeks :-( I also think I won't be able to make up my mind lol

    Agreed
    And you certainly do a lot of juice reviews!

    I think your 3 days is enough to get a good feeling for a juice though.

    Great review on this Vape Bag. I also agree that it is a bit on the smaller side. Id prefer there original Bag they had at Last Vapecon which was alot bigger for all the "Vape Stuff"
    Yes I am back in the land of the living.:D
    I see you have been real busy ever since Iv been away. Cannot wait to get back there!!!
