SoundVape Portable Charging Case Review and Giveaway

For those of us that have electronic cigarettes, we know how horrible it is to be without a way to charge your ecig while on the go. I know that I hate carrying anything extra along with me no matter how long I am going to be gone. I was recently sent the SoundVape Portable Charging Case to review for you guys.

Portable Charging Case for Remix/Beat

This case is great because you can charge your ecig up to 4 times with this case, and you can even hold a second ecig inside.It is definitely a must have if you are always on the go. This charger also works with both the BEAT and Remix kits from SoundVape! I love that it works with more than one kit from their site. One of my favorite things about this charger has to be that it is the perfect size and can even protect your ecigs while they are in your pocket. I hate trying to fit all my cords and chargers in my purse or attempting to carry them around all day. It is just a pain and this makes things so much easier!

This case is equipped with a battery that reminds me of a cell phone battery. Which is good because if there are any problems (which I have not had) you can just reset the battery and it will be good. I have horrible luck with electronics that you can’t just “reset” in some way so I like having the option.

SoundVape Poratable Charger

The case itself slides really well and is very light weight. It doesn’t feel like you are carrying a charger! I think it is even lighter than a lot of ecig cases I have tried, which is really surprising to me! The charging port itself swivels so you can easily connect your ecig. I love that you can also hold a fully assembled ecig, or two carts in the top slot. It is definitely a must have for ecig users!

777 Ecigs: Magnum Digital Essentials Kit Review

I am very excited about this next review! You guys know that I have reviewed electronic cigarettes before, but what you may not know is that I have been looking for the next step up from regular ecigs to ones with larger batteries and tanks instead of carts. I found a company called 777 eCigs and they are definitely a company that you should know about!
I received 777 eCigs Magnum Digital Essentials Kit to review. This kit includes a 650 mAh Digital LCD Battery, one refillable 1.5 ml Tank and coil, 5 replacement coils, and a smart wall charger.

So why was I so excited to review this kit? First off this batter will last a lot longer than the smaller batteries. This particular battery is super cool because it not only tells you how much battery life is left, but it also tells you how many puffs you have taken since the last time you charged it! This battery also has a 15 second cutoff safety feature that will shut off the battery after 15 seconds of use to prevent overexposure to nicotine. It will also lock if you press the button 5 times within 2 seconds so that you do not have to worry about it turning on in your pocket or purse!

SoundVape Electronic Cigarettes Review

As you know, I have been scouring the web trying to find the best electronic cigarettes at the best prices for you. Recently I came across a brand new e-cig company, SoundVape. They offer high quality e-cigs at amazing prices! I was able to score some of their products to review for you and I could not be happier with my experience!

About SoundVape

¹sound adjective, adverb \’saủnd\
1. strong, secure, reliable; robust: a sound heart; a sound mind; a sound investment.
2. competent, sensible, or valid: sound judgment.
3. of substantial or enduring character: sound moral values.
SoundVape has fully committed to bringing you products that have just the right balance of quality, ease of use, and affordability. We want to transition our customers into the “vaping” era—a new way for people to “smoke” without the ash, tar, smell, and other chemicals found in traditional cigarettes. We’ve dedicated quite a bit of time testing countless electronic cigarettes on the market while making sure that the products we choose fit the needs and budgets of our customers. Unlike many competitors, we also encourage our customers to refill their cartomizers (nicotine cartridges) to keep more money in their pockets. Vaping should be simple, pleasurable, and cost effective. After trying our products you won’t need to go anywhere else. Join us today and discover the SOUND alternative to smoking.

What I think:

I received a Remix Blackout Starter Kit which included two e-cig batteries, a USB charger, an AC wall adapter, and either 6 fill-your-own cartomizers or 6 fresh-to-order pre-filled cartomizers. You heard that right, if you decide to order the pre-filled carts they will be filled the day you order them so that they are as fresh as possible! I chose my kit to have the blank carts so that I could fill them with what I wanted.

I loved that the Remix Blackout has a kind of rubberized finish to it. Not only do I think it looks better than most shiny black e-cigs, but it is also easier to hold. I did notice that this battery does not take as long as some of the other batteries I own to charge, but lasts just as long if not longer. So I was really impressed with this battery. It is also not nearly as heavy, which is a nice change.

This is the second company that I have seen individually wrap their cartomizers. I love this idea because it keeps them fresh and makes it easy for the refillable carts, because you know which ones you have filled and which ones haven’t. With other brands I would sit there and smell each one to see if I had filled it. There is nothing worse than mixing eliquids that do not go well together! So thank you SoundVape for packaging your carts like this!

In case you have never seen a refillable cart before, here is what they look like. They have polly-fill material inside that looks somewhat similar to cotton, and these particular ones utilize horizontal bottom coil technology. Why is this important? It helps each cart last longer and helps prevent the burning taste you get when your cart is empty.

It is super easy to fill up these cartomizers too! You just take your cart at a 45 degree angle, put a drop of liquid on the side above the polly-fill material, rotate and repeat until it starts to pool at the top. Other companies will warn you not to overfill but will not tell you what to do if you overfill. SoundVape let me know that if you blow sharply on the end of your cart over a paper towel or cloth that it will blow the excess liquid out of your cart so it is ready to use! I love that this company tries to help you succeed in using their products! It truly is refreshing to see a company that wants to make things as easy as possible for their customers!

I received both Moondrop Elixir and Straight Up Menthol eliquids. The Straight Up Menthol is a mixture of mint and tobacco that I definitely enjoyed. The mint was a little stronger than I would have preferred, but I could also taste the tobacco flavor behind it. Regardless of the mint, this is the best menthol eliquid I have tried! It actually tasted like a menthol instead of tasting horrible. So it was a nice change.

Moondrop Elixir 10ML

My favorite of the two would have to be the Moondrop Elixir! It took me a long time to figure out what this tasted like. I could tell immediately that it was somehow watermelon and knew that it reminded me of some kind of candy. After a couple of days of sitting there and pondering about the flavor it finally dawned on me! It tastes just like Watermelon Poprocks!! Of course I could be off, but I asked my husband and my brother-in-law and they both agree! I can honestly say I have never tasted anything like this flavor and it is by far the best I have tasted. It is one of the only flavors in my collection that does not leave a weird after taste. This is definitely one of those flavors that leaves you begging for more!

I think SoundVape was spot with their description. Their products are the SOUND alternative to smoking! After testing their products I have definitely become a fan and I can’t wait to share with you what they come up with next! Stay tuned for more awesome products from SoundVape!

Eversmoke Review

Lately, smoking has become a major problem for me. With so much going on with my family and friends I feel the constant need to go outside and take a break from the world. I do understand what smoking can do to me, but at this point in my life I am not quite ready to quit.
It has been a while since I have reviewed any electronic cigarettes for you, so I decided to give them another shot. It amazes me that even in just a few months everything can change! I was given the chance to review Eversmoke electronic cigarettes and I am very happy with them!

First off, let me start with what I received. I was able to snag the Eversmoke Reusable Express Kit, the Flavor Sampler, and the Disposable E-Cigarette. I was very impressed with how fast these items got to me and even more impressed with what I got. So lets get this review started!

I will go ahead start off with their Disposable E-Cigarette. This was not my favorite of the bunch as I prefer rechargeable E-cigs, but I was still pleasantly surprised with this one. I have noticed with a lot of other brands, their classic flavor disposable will have a weird after taste. So far I have not noticed that weird after taste so I was very excited!
Another great thing about disposables is that you don’t have to recharge them. The built in battery will last a little bit longer than the re-chargeable but once it is dead you just throw it away and get a new one. The good thing about that, is that you always know that your E-Cig is fresh (which really does help the flavor). You also don’t have to assemble the disposables. You just pull it out of the package and start smoking. At about $10 a piece it is definitely a good deal.

My favorite part about Eversmoke is that they have their Express Starter Kit that looks like an actual pack of cigarettes. This nifty little pack is normally $39.99 but is currently on sale for $29.99! Each Express kit comes with one battery, two cartomizers of your choice (Classic or Menthol) and a USB charger. I love that it all fits in the pack which fits perfectly in your pocket or purse.

I was also very surprised to find the diamond accent on the end. A lot of other companies have the plain ash cap, which is great but I do prefer the accented ends mainly because while I do like them to look like cigarettes I do like everyone else to know that they aren’t. They also glow a pretty orange color. I was very impressed with the Classic Tobacco! It even feels like a regular cigarette! Every so often you will find an E-cig that will taste similar to a regular cigarette, but never one that feels like one!

Remember how I was talking about the fact that a good thing about the disposables is that they are fresh out of the package? One reason I am very obsessed with this company is that the Flavor Sampler I received had each flavor packages separately. So you can have your rechargeable and have fresh cartomizers for it!
Another thing that really surprised me about these e-cigs is that they have really good vapor quality. Most cheaper electronic cigarettes have almost no vapor after being exhaled. So these were definitely a nice change.

If you are looking for a inexpensive way to break into the electronic cigarette world you should check this company out! They have some great options and some great deals! You can find Eversmoke and their products on their website here.

Progressigs Review

As I’m sure you all know, I am on a mission to find the best electronic cigarettes with the best prices. It amazes me how different each company is. I had figured that there would only be a few differences, but I have learned so much the last few weeks. This next company has really surpassed my expectations. I received some really awesome products from Progressigs to review for you guys.
Believer Kit

So why don’t you have your own electronic cigarette yet? Are they too big? Not enough vapor? Or is there something else that draws you away from them? I have been asking everyone that I can why they have not made the switch, and for the most part everyone comes up with the same answers. I finally found a company that has all of the qualities you are looking for in an e-cigarette plus many more.
The number one problem people seem to have with e-cigarettes, at least from my personal findings, has been that they are too heavy, or too long. Progressigs are significantly smaller and lighter than any other e-cigarettes I have tried. You can hold them just like a regular cigarette without feeling awkward or uncomfortable. Unlike most other brands, you can hold a Progressigs e-cigarette where you want instead of in the middle. If you are looking for something extremely light, their disposables are even lighter than the rechargeable e-cigarettes and they come in all the same great flavors.

The second most talked about issue is that they just don’t feel like you are smoking a cigarette. Sure they look the same, but most just don’t feel the same. Instead of using your typical cartomizer Progressigs use a technology called an Aquamizer. The Aquamizer uses ceramic rods instead of cotton fibers which not only helps to produce more vapor, but also helps make sure that none of the e-liquid is wasted in the smoking process. It’s amazing how much thicker the vapor is in this e-cigarette than in the others I have tried. Not only could I see the difference, but I could feel it as well.

So why do I love Progressigs? As much as I love different flavors, I love that Progressigs only carries a small number of flavors. Since they only have a limited number of flavors you can trust that the quality of each of these flavors is just as good as the rest. I was able to try all of their flavors available which include: Regular Tobacco, Menthol, Cherry, Vanilla, and Clove. Each one had its own personality that really made it stand out from other brands. The Tobacco tasted more like an actual cigarette than other brands. The Menthol while strong, was actually very refreshing. Even though I’m not a big fan of clove it was actually pretty good. You can actually taste the cherry in the Cherry flavor, which is great because other brands fruity flavors taste funny. And last but not least the Vanilla has been everyone’s favorite! It’s extremely smooth, and is just a great flavor.


Another reason Progressigs stands out so much to everyone I have talked to is because of the carrying case. Not only can you fit an assembled e-cigarette in the case, but you can also use the case as a charger. The charger itself has a battery that can re-charge your e-cigarettes up to 5 times before needing to be charged again. Not only that but if you charge your e-cigarette by itself instead of using the case it can take hours to charge, while the case charges your battery within about 30 minutes. So if you don’t like e-cigarettes because of how inconvenient it is to charge them, than this is the e-cig for you. I love that even if I am not home I can easily charge my e-cig without having to find my charger, and find some where to plug it in.

This company is in my opinion the best e-cigarette company. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next! You can find these and other awesome Progressigs products on their website here.

Vapor4Life E-cigarette Review

One thing that I have been seeing a lot of lately, and have been wanting to review for quite some time has been the notorious e-cigarette. The e-cigarette is a small vaporizer, that has all the qualities of a regular cigarette without all of the defects such as tar, smell, and of course without the smoke. So why have we not already done the switch? Some e-cigarettes leave a funny after taste, or just plain taste funny, and the majority of them are too expensive. So I went on a search to find you the best e-cigarettes with the best prices, and I think I found them.
We were able to get my husband a Classic VP Automatic e-cigarette from Vapor4Life to review for you guys. We got a black e-cigarette with a tip that glows green. Yes, green! My husbands favorite cigarette brand happens to be Kamel Reds. They are very expensive, and very hard to find and he was very excited to try the e-cigarette version. The kit my husband received would cost $29.95 and includes one battery, one charger, a pack of cartomizers, and a really awesome carrying case. Which compared to many e-cigarettes I have seen is a really great deal!
Left: E-cigarette when not in use Right: In use
Still confused about e-cigarettes, and what they are all about? An e-cigarette is a small vaporizer in the shape of a cigarette. The longer piece is the battery, and the shorter pieces are the cartomizers. The cartomizers are what hold the e-liquid that when plugged into the battery is heated up and produces the vapor. So why should you make the switch to e-cigarettes?
  • E-cigarettes are so much cheaper then smoking regular cigarettes! Sure, at first you have to buy a kit, but after that the price of the cartomizers more then makes up for it.
  • E-cigarettes do not leave behind that nasty smoke smell. So you don’t have to spray on cologne, or perfume just to hide the smell.
  • With e-cigarettes you don’t have to feel guilty about smoking (or vaping) near others. e-cigarettes don’t emit smoke, or any other harsh chemicals in the air. So you can smoke in you house, the bar, or even work without offending anyone or feeling guilty.
Do we think its worth it? Do we think E-cigarettes are comparable to the real thing? Like I said before, we have been looking for a good e-cigarette for a while now. We have tried many that other friends and family have, but never found one that really wowed us. Sure they were okay, but they were not great. Most other e-cigarette companies have limited flavors, or options. So if you want your Kamel Reds, or you want your Virginia Slims, you would just have to settle for the one flavor they have. With Vapor4Life there is not settling. You can not only have your Kamel Reds, or your Virginia Slims but you can choose the color, style and anything else you want. I have not seen this many options from any other company.
Vapor4Life offers more then 150 different flavors! They have many different cigarette flavors, as well as coffee flavors, drink flavors, and even your favorite deserts! So you can trust that you will never get bored with your e-cigarette. Are these flavors any good? The Kamel flavor my husband received is by far the best e-cigarette tobacco flavor we have ever tried! There was not a gross after taste, and it tasted just like a regular cigarette. It still gave him the burn, and the nicotine that he wanted, while not destroying his throat, and without smelling like cigarettes the rest of the day. The vapor itself is also thicker then other brands, so you really feel like your smoking a cigarette. The e-cigarette is also lighter then others, so it doesn’t feel as awkward as others do.
Looking to quite cigarettes? With Vapor4Life you can decide the nicotine level in you e-cigarette. How would this help you quit? You can start off at a higher level strength cartomizer that compares to your normal smoking habits. For me this level was 11mg, and for my husband 18mg. After you get used to your e-cigarette you can then get a lower level until eventually you are at 0mg which is something you definitely can not do with regular cigarettes.
When I first started looking up e-cigarettes I was so confused about the different options. Such as: What is the difference between manual and automatic? What is a Cartomizer? What would be a good mg to start off with? Luckily for us the Vapor4Life customer service is absolutely amazing, and was able to help us figure that kind of thing out. I spent hours trying to figure out the difference between an automatic and a manual. The difference is very simple, a manual has a button that activates the battery while the automatic does not. The regular cartomizers are pre-filled and ready to go, while the blanks need to be filled with e-liquid before use.

Whether your looking to quit, or you are looking for an alternative to smoking this is a great product! They have something for everyone, which is really awesome! You can find this e-cigarette and many others on the website here.
