Sorry this video is up a little later than i wanted because the switch on my original Protege' died after roughly 4 days of use. I sent it back to Casey and she fixed it up no problem and shipped it back. The whole process probably took no more than 4 days total. anyway , holy crap the Protege' is bad ass! believe me when i say I'm being completely objective here , but this blows every other 3.7v device completely away. The batteries seem to never die and with the option of adapters for multiple atomizers the Protege' probably makes it one of the most versatile device available. This is not just another 3.7v mod , it's machined out of stainless steel right here in the USA. It feels insanely durable and it keeps that "fresh of the charger" feel ALL-DAY-LONG. i have had about a week and a half to use this and it has become my all day every day device without a doubt. worth every penny i paid for it and then some.
NEW INTRO! hopefully youtube doesn't yank my soundtrack... anyway.. decided to pick up some greencig cartomizers from Drew at nHaler.com , i kept hearing things like how much better they were than my beloved KR808D-1 (Nebula / vaporking) cartomizers. so far , not to bad ,decent flavor , ok vapor , very little throat hit. They seem to last for a good long time. I have been vaping the same greencig cartomizer almost non stop for a little over 5 hours now with no noticeable drop in vapor or flavor. the interesting thing is , the greencigs only work well on 2 of my 4 KR batteries. The KR battery with the best draw on a KR cartomizer seems to have the worst (very stiff) draw on a greencig. and vice versa. I cant find any rhyme or reason why this happens either. i will report back with how long exactly it lasts , and how easy they are to refill.

I have no vested interest in any of the suppliers who choose to send me products to review , and i would never and WILL never offer to give a good review in order to get receive free products or devices. onward Texas Pralines - good , not great , it does have a nice toffee / pralines flavor but it could probably stand to be a little stronger in the flavor department. It's pretty sweet (which i like) and the 24mg stuff was giving me a reckless throat hit for sure. I don't know if i could do it all day , but i have filled a cartomizer with some Texas Pralines and it's a nice change of pace during the day. Texas Twist - really really really really reminds me of the Johnson's Creek Tenesee Cured juice i had a while ago , it's a chocolate tobacco flavor , kind of like a Tootsie Roll with some tobacco and a touch of vanilla , very nice juice and VERY nice at a higher voltage. The throat hit? reckless of course. thanks Parked , Dietsmokes.com and Liquidxpress.com

Nice draw , solid vapor and great flavor. Forget the carts this is a dipping / dripping device for sure. They have the same horrible inner-cart style as the M-401 style devices , so i wouldn't even bother with them. Decent battery life got me about 5 hours of vaping time. The vapor stayed strong until the end with no noticeable drop in vapor production as the batteries were dying. Nice matte black finish with a cool yellow 2012 logo printed on it. thanks for the support everyone , i'll keep making them , if you keep watching them THANKS!!!

Parked and Rob have really done a great job in capturing the flavors and aroma of the espresso beverage of the same name. Very lite / rich espresso flavor with a good creamy caramel / vanilla flavor. The 24mg juice is delivering a fantastic throat hit. The flavor really reminds me of the old formula CashCapp from puresmoker , with a little less nutmeg cinnamon flavor. This juice just get's better the longer i vape it , such a good morning vape. the price from dietsmokes.com is 15mls for $12 , not a bad price for easily one of the most flavorful juices i have tried thus far. Believe me this juice is not bland in any way I don't think it will replace my liquidxpress honey-flu-cured juice as an all day vape , but i will certainly be buying more of this Caramel Macchiato juice when i'm craving that coffee vape.

So this video really has nothing to do with Halloween , other than the intro .. and I'm reviewing TOTALLY WICKED juice... mrmrmrhha ha ha ha ha!!! anyway , this juice is a taste alike to the Marlboro juice i get from Andre at thehouseofvapor.com for about 1/2 the price. i didn't get the legendary TW throat hit , but i did get a good (expensive) Marlboro flavor , nice smooth very slightly sweet / nutty flavor that i love i cant really recommend this juice , knowing i can get it for a much lower price elsewhere. don't get me wrong , this is GOOOOD juice , i LOVE Marlboro and i do believe in paying more for a higher quality / better tasting juice , but for this juice... next time i will pass on totallywicked's overpriced juice. also , head over to vapersforum.com already! we have some good times over there
so I decided to go ahead and get this uploaded a little sooner than i had planed. Happy now Casey?! 🙂 I do want to point out that i did pay for this device , and Puresmoker.com gave me their usual outstanding customer service and speedy shipping. I'm a firm believer in doing First Impressions and then doing a followup and final review after i have a chance to spend some practical time with the device. So first impressions? PURE RADNESS. I did end up taking it with me to my rock show that night and in performed like a champ the whole night well into the next morning , and into the following afternoon without so much as a slight drop in performance. the size is really amazing , it feels very VERY solid and the button is nice and spongy with the perfect amount of resistance. It is a touch heavier than any other device i have , mostly because it's made of stainless steel. also a bit of warning to those who are going to use the Protege' with their existing Puresmoker passthrough adapters. Like i said the Protege' is STAINLESS STEEL , and the passthrough adapters are aluminum. It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to figure out that stainless steel is a harder metal than aluminum. If you force the adapter from your passthrough onto the Protege' you will strip the threads right off of the adapter , so BE CAREFULL! if it feels wrong or too snug STOP! , i have swapped out the adapters a few times with great caution , but i have a feeling the 510 adapter will not be leaving my Protege' on a regular basis. it hit's great and just feels nice in the hand , the fit and finish is nearly flawless with the only exception being the top of the button housing has some pointy corners. I have also noticed that because of the way the 510 adapter is made , the draw become a little more "stiff" when using the Protege' due to the shallow notches cut out on the battery post. i really want to test the limits of this device so i will report back in 1-2 weeks on how it performs out in the real world http://www.puresmoker.com/category_s/55.htm
well here is the #1 and #2 , decided to upload this a litter sooner than i thought i would , also this was recorded about a week ago directly after my #3 and #4 video... hence the same hoodie. #2 , the Cisco Lazer Mod with an 801 atomizer from vapornine.com. While this device has a slightly weaker battery life than my beloved Screwdriver , it is still certainly longer lasting than most traditional e-cig batteries , especially the traditional Joye-510 batteries. This is my "on the couch dripping device". I love the penstyle atomizer for the nice smooth draw and huge vapor. These penstyle attys from vapornine.com seem to rarely leak either. Teamed up with Marlboro from thehouseofvapor.com it's an extremely satisfying vaping experience. #1 , the Puresmoker.com USB passthrough , my only "higher voltage" device is also my most satisfying. I am usually a low volt vaper when i'm out and about but at home this thing knocks my socks off. Like i said in the video i didn't really fall in love with this until i got that 901 adapter for it , now i just drip 3 drops and fill the room with clouds of vapor. It doesn't have a battery to worry about charging and if my computer is on then it's good to go. The only real downside to this device is that i can't take it with me. Regardless it will deliver a R-E-C-K-L-E-S-S throat hit time after time after time after time. This device is REALLY well built , feels very sturdy and has a nice thick gauge cord that DOES RELAX over time. I have also found that most of my juices taste great at 5v while a few others get completely ruined. The Dulcis juice from vaportalk.com sold at dietsmokes.com is hands down amazing on this device. puresmoker.com vapornine.com thehouseofvapor.com dietsmokes.com ---for the dulcis juice http://www.vapersforum.com/showthread.php?t=718 --make your own lazer pointer
again , thanks for all the support to help stopping the california PV ban , we need to KEEP IT UP!!! and in the spirit of "keep on vaping" here is a review of 2 pretty standard issue juices , like i said in the video i reference these a lot but have never done a review of them. Veterans might be bored with this video , but it's really more for the NEW vapers that have not had a chance to try all the juice flavors out there. Camel - not as "stinky sock" as the other camel juices i have tried , vapes well at 3.7v and vapes REALLY well at 5v , a little more "sweetness" comes through at a higher voltage , certainly not an all day vape for me , but this juice has a pretty strong following and some people just swear by it. I have been mixing camel %80 / %20 with menthol and i'ts actually really good , very much like an old analog menthol flavor 555 - i really enjoy this juice , it's strong and pungent and N-U-T-T-Y! , has a very slight tobacco-ish flavor but the nuttiness of this juice is really overwhelming , even at a lower nic content like my other 16mg 555 i get a reckless throat hit. I feel this juice vapes best at a lower voltage , some of the complexity get's lost at 5v. also , go check out youtube user Hyperdeficit , he has been making some good , entertaining vaping videos.
::UPDATE:: WE WON!!! Head over to vaportalk.com to get the whole story!! To the Members of the California State Senate: I am returning Senate Bill 400 without my signature. While I support restricting access of electronic cigarettes to children under the age of 18, I cannot sign a measure that also declares them a federally regulated drug when the matter is currently being decided through pending litigation. Items defined as tobacco products are legal for anyone over the age of 18. If adults want to purchase and consume these products with an understanding of the associated health risks, they should be able to do so unless and until federal law changes the legal status of these tobacco products. For this reason, I am unable to sign this bill. Sincerely, Arnold Schwarzenegger Thanks to Chris from Vaportalk for starting the fight , and HUGE thank you to Governor Schwarznegger for vetoing this bill. This is a good win for us , in the ever growing battle KEEP ON VAPING!!
