    I still have a Gusto but I haven't used it for a long time. I agree with you that it certainly gets the job done, but I found the price of the pods a bit steep. It's interesting to see how the price of the mod has decreased dramatically, compared with the approx R600 we were paying a year ago (from vendors, not directly from Vape Republic). It's a jolly good little mod though and I'll just hang on to mine for the time being!

    Mango Lime Grenade Important Info.jpg

    Juice Name: Mango-Lime Grenade
    Manufactured By: Riot Squad
    Flavour Profile: Mango, lime and explosive lemonade.
    Packaging: 60ml Easy Dripper
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6 mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    As I am part of the Riot Squad SA influencer team, these flavours were sent to me for review purposes (Distributed through White Snow) and this review is done on the 3mg.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    By now and after VapeCon everyone knows these bullet shaped bottles (patented), each in their own unique colours. The label itself is very punk, with all the necessary information.

    Another interesting fact is that Riot Labs actually formulate their own flavours and don't use your "commercial" concentrates.

    With the finger taste test, the first flavour that you will taste is the sweet mango, followed by the sourish lime and then the fizzy lemonade.

    Upon inhale the sweet juicy mango and lemonade comes into play first followed by the lime flavour. I personally think the flavour is well balanced with just the right amount of sweet and sour.

    With exhaling what I love is that the zesty lime flavour jumps on your palate and stays there until the mango and lemonade leaves your palate. The flavours are also consistant to inhale.

    I enjoyed this flavour most on the single coil RDA and although it has my favourite type of flavour profile, it is just not an ADV for me.

    Would I buy a bottle again? I don't know.

    Coil Art Dpro 133 with the Dpro RDA (dual)

    The CliQ was sent to me from Katie at Twisp for review purposes. This is the latest design to the Twisp range and I am absolutely inlove with it. I also have to add it is the first set of flavours in a long time to give me "head rush", actually felt like a highschool kid again.

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

    Device Specs :
    - Dimensions : 107 x 11 x 15.5mm
    - High nicotine, smooth delivery
    - Mechanical snap-in pods
    - Automatic 350mAh battery
    - LED light indicator

    This is possibly one of the most easiest devices to use.

    The flavour pods are available in two types :
    Smooth (3%) and Regular (4.5%).
    The are also 4-multi layered flavour pods.

    A closer look at the available flavours...
    1) Soda : Apple and grape with mint (my favourite)
    2) Leaf : Top leaf tobacco
    3) Arcade : Lemon and Raspberry
    4) Bean : Roasted bean with creamy notes (my second favourite)

    FLAVOURS.jpg

    I am not going to go into detailed reviews regarding the flavours, but I personally prefer the smooth versions.

    Usage of pods:
    Because the pods are an optimized coil system and nicotine salts formulation to deliver unparalled flavour, the pods are required to be sealed.

    Step 1 : Carefully pull out the clear silicone stopper from the mouthpiece.
    Step 2 : Wait 3 minutes before use.
    Step 3 : Click in and enjoy.

    You should in theory get around 260 puffs per pod.

    Pros :
    - Super lightweight
    - Sleek design
    - Disposable pre-filled pods
    - Easy to use
    - Pods click in securely
    - Atomizer protection
    - Short circuit protection
    - Low voltage protection
    - Resistance detection

    Cons :
    - Size of the battery
    - Would love more different flavour profiles
    - Would love the device itself in two more colours

    In Conclusion:

    At VapeCon 2019, I introduced a smoker friend to the Twisp brand and in this short time he has gone down from three packets of stinkies a day to only one and I am extremely proud of this

    Even though the battery is on the small side, this device lasts me aroubd a full day (obviously depending on usage). The other benefit about the small battery is that it charges super fast (60 minutes).

    Usually with most pod systems I have a massive issue with pods that leaks and it puts me off immediately. I have not experienced any leakage and I have been moving and shaking this poor thing like a crazy person.

    I personally think this device will definitely make it easier for smokers to convert from stinkies to vaping.

    CliQ vs Cue? I loved the Cue, but the CliQ exceeded my expectations and takes the win.

    Great review @Chanelr and we're definitely on the same page as far as the CLIQ is concerned!! I'm looking forward to trying Soda, which you said is your favourite!

    Peppermint Breeze - Important Information.jpg
    Juice Name: Peppermint Breeze
    Manufactured By: IVG
    Flavour Profile: A floral peppermint flavour complemented by a sweet chewing gum.
    Packaging: 60ml Dripper Bottle
    Nicotine Strength Options: 0, 3 and 6mg
    PG/VG Ratio: 30PG/70VG

    This juice was given to me by Faisal from IVG for purposes of this review. I decided to do this flavour first, as the flavour profile did not really wow me that much. This review is done on the 3mg.

    My Opinion and Tasting Experience

    What I do like about the range is that the cap of the bottle is silver to match part of the label. The label itself is silver, white and blue. Showing the brand, the name and all other necessary information you might need.

    With the finger tasting test you will find the taste to be similar to chewing a piece of peppermint gum. If you have a throat tickle, it helps for that too.

    With inhale the taste I get is a slightly different peppermint but still has similarities to gum. What I like is that you don't just get the taste of peppermint, but also the taste of chewing gum. Very clever word play on the labels and range name. Flavour balance is also really good.

    Upon exhale the flavour is consistent to inhale, still not finding the flavours to overpower each other.

    I prefer this flavour mostly in the tank, not an ADV (even though I love my mint/ice flavours). Other than that it is one of those flavours that leaves you feeling refreshed.

    Would I buy a bottle again? Doubt it.

    I won a hamper from Riot Squad [thank you Esiggsa] and the jolly gentleman at their stand actually gave me ALL their flavours ,
    I have tried a couple of them and are pleasantly surprised , their bottle description and the taste you get is pretty accurate -
    will def. buy some of them , the un populars went to @Power puffer who tends to like the mangoes and lime profiles.

    The Folomov A1 USB Magnetic Charger was sent to me from @Pho3niX90 at The Vape Den for purposes of this review.

    Product Specs:

    Dimensions:
    185 x 35 x 9mm
    Max Charging/Discharging Current: 1000mA
    Input: DC 5V 1000mA
    Output: DC 5V 1000mA
    Compatible with: Li-ion/IMR - 26650, 21700, 20700, 25500, 22650, 18700, 18650, 18500, 18490, 18350, 17670, 17500, 17335, 16340, 14650, 14500, 10440, 10350 and 10340.

    LED Indicators:

    Green light > charging
    Blue light > discharging

    Pro's:
    -Powerful magnets
    -Lightweight
    -Portable
    -Quick and Convenient
    -Smart microchip
    -Over discharge protection
    -Reverse polarity protection
    -Max 1A charge/discharge current
    -Affordable
    -Safe and reliable
    -0V activation feature

    I personally can't find any faults with the product, even though I was skeptical at first.

    Testing Environments:
    -Powerbank
    -Computer
    -Laptop

    Personal preference and feeling a bit safer is on the powerbank, but as not everyone has this a PC/Laptop works just as well.

    This is really useful when you are camping, on the road or in between meetings.

    It charges relatively quick for a USB charger.
    *Charge times may vary*

    NOTE : Still practise battery safety even if it is just a 1A current and do not leave charging batteries unattended.

    Ofcourse.
    The magnets have positive and negatives, which you clip onto the battery. (Same as you would insert into a battery charger).

    Then you plug the USB into a powerbank/laptop etc and it charges the battery.

    Not sure how to explain it other than that :)

    I got one on Friday and it has already replaced the CUE for me. I have only tried the regular pods that came with the kit and it is the first nic salts that doesn't irretate my lungs. It has a very satisfying nic hit and I can see that this is going to work even better that the Cue for converting smokers to vaping (I have converted quite a few smokers to vaping by PIFing CUEs). I only used my CUEs for stealth vaping when I travel, but the Cliq will now become my quick nic hitter as well.

    A winner indeed.
