The goal of 2017 is to cut out cigarette smoking 100%, so when I was approached to write some words on this piece of kit, from E-Cigarette Direct, it was like the planets had aligned and I was being lead down the correct path. *The very nice Sylvie helped me get set up with this equipment as a gift to review, so a huge shout out to her for that.
I went for the kit you can see above: Coolfire IV TC100 with the iSub V tank and an assortment of juices in Vintage Cola, Bubble Trouble, Cherry Bakewell and Raspberry Crush. Together, the cost of buying all these items from the website is just shy of £100, which isn't so bad for something that is going to last a long time and reduce the intake of cigarettes.
So lets get into each unit individually.
The Coolfire IV TC 100 is the actual battery of the kit; it's going to provide the power to heat the juices, to get the smoke, aka the important part - in a nut shell. It has a very clear LCD display, to which you can control the temperature or wattage of the pack itself. The pack itself can provide 100w of power from the in built 3300mAh lip battery.
It has a great weight to it. It doesn't feel cheap at all, which is something I like. I went for it in white, as the black was sold out and personally, I think this only looks good in black or white - if you're after something a bit more stylish. It holds really nice too!
Admittedly, tanks isn't something I knew a lot about before really researching into them. The great thing about the website is the comment section under all product. Through this, I was able to understand what I was looking at and how it will benefit me. With all the reading of the comments done, I decided to go for this tank, the iSub V, in white.
I went for this tank because it has features I really like; ones that will definitely come in handy and they'll also make the vaping process more enjoyable. For example, the quick and clean top fill, adjustable air flow and the no spill swap system.
The tank itself is 3.0ml Pyrex glass and is 100% stainless steel. Just like the battery, you can feel the quality.
Using these together, the cloud of vapour you get is huge. I've been using mine on 375f with the air flow half way open. Other machines i've tried make it really hard for me to enjoy it, but this one is a breeze. My only issue with the tank is the size, I think it could be larger, even up to 5ml would be better - I found myself having to fill up each day. This is partly down to me not filling it to full capacity, in fear of spillage, despite not having experienced that before and my enjoyment of the flavours of juices I have - they're rather tasty!
Juices! There's many out there, some taste better than others and it's all about reading the reviews. I started this system using the Vintage Cola and boy does it taste good; reminiscent of cinema trips, chomping down on cola cubes. It's sweet, flavoursome and works well.
Moving on, I went for Bubble Trouble, but I have to say, it was disappointing. I expected something so fruity and mouth watering, but for me, it was harsh and didn't have a flavour close to bubblegum. The harshness sometimes left me coughing once i'd inhaled the vapour, which isn't ideal when you're out and about.
Raspberry Crush is beautiful. Note, this is the only juice I got that does have a trace of nicotine. I had read great reviews of this flavour, but sadly they don't do it in a nicotine free version - this definitely needs changing if you ask me!
Cherry Bakewell was nice, but not my favourite. It does have that lovely sweet almond undertone to it, but I wanted more cherry flavour to come through.
Overall, I am very happy with this kit. I've been using it daily and haven't felt the urge to go buy a pack of cigarettes, even when I've been out having a drink, which is usually my downfall - so far, so good. I will be using this for as long as I need to and will come back with a follow up if any of my opinions change. The juices I can get easily from where I live, so I will have no issue in finding new flavours to try.
