John Madden

John has been using e-cigarettes for almost 2 years, although he admits he wasn't completely satisfied with his experience with them in the beginning. Since then he has been on a quest to find the "perfect vape" while trying out hundreds of combinations of e-cigarettes, mods and atomizers with countless local and online vendors at his disposal. Because he feels e-cigs have the potential to be a public health miracle, John is also active in their research and promotion as a safer alternative to tobacco cigarettes.

vapor zone e-liquid

VaporFi is a subsidiary of International Vapor Group, Inc. and manufacturer of both e-cigarettes and e-liquid. We’ve already reviewed their line of rechargeable e-cigs (read our VaporFi review here) so now it’s time to review VaporFi e-liquid blends.   Unlike many juice companies, VaporFi gives customers the option of choosing their own e-liquid blends with up to three flavors. And that e-liquid is all made in an FDA-registered lab with specially “made-to-inhale” […]

Along with South Beach Smoke and EverSmoke, International Vapor Group recently launched a new line of e-cigarettes to appeal more to the advanced vaping market.

Volcano eCig Magma Kit Review

If you’re a frequenter of vapor shops or online forums, or maybe have just been researching your next e-cig purchase, there’s a good chance you’ve heard the name “Volcano” thrown around. No, I’m not talking about the herbal vaporizer. This Volcano is a fabricator of electronic cigarettes. Based in Honolulu, Hawaii, Volcano Fine Electronic Cigarettes has been around for nearly 4 years and is one of the more renown manufacturers that specialize in both standard and advanced electronic cigarettes. So I had high expectations for their e-cigs and went ahead and ordered each of the Starter Kits: VOLCANO, MAGMA, INFERNO and LAVATUBE. In this Volcano ecig review I will present some of the pros and cons of the four different models and show just how all-encompassing the brand’s lineup really is.

Halcyon-Vapors-E-Liquid-review

Based in Orange, California, Halcyon Vapors has been in business for a little over a year. The brand is well-known locally, in particular for its top two flavors and a high VG to PG ratio which make it popular among drippers and cloud chasers. Speaking of those flavors, I’ve dubbed Cran Ch’i and Dragon Ch’i along with the newly-released Apach’i as the “Cranchize”.   Halcyon Vapors has developed a strong […]

Five Pawns Signature Vapor Liquid Review

Five Pawns E-liquid review

Having been around since November of 2012, Five Pawns was one of the first in movement toward more artisanal blends. But none have branded themselves in the way Five Pawns has. Taking a page out of the microbrew industry, founder Rodney Jerabek uniformly “themed” Five Pawns similar to that of a high-end craft brewery or distillery. Every glass bottle is not only individually numbered, but packaged in an elegant cardboard […]

Cigavette Electronic Cigarette Review

Cigavette is a two year old electronic cigarette company based in Las Vegas, Nevada. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that their products seem geared toward the younger smoking crowd. Not only do they offer basic mini e-cigs but also e-cigars and e-hookahs in flavors named after tasty cocktails.
