Joyetech Penguin Review

Disclosure:

I have 2 Penguins, bought with my own money (although not at full price) from Good Guy Vapes, who I have worked for in the past and who sell my <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juice.

The Goods:

Its quirky looking, but has a replaceable 8.8ml tank (available for purchase by itself) with replaceable coils (0.28 ohm and 0.6 ohm). It has an internal 2000mah battery, and can be safely charged at 2A (standard high power USB phone charger amperage).

Aside from the novelty of just being a huge "cartridge" style system, the other cool feature is that the airflow is determined by the coil itself, so the 0.6 ohm actually has a tighter draw than the 0.28 ohm.

No "Fancy" features – Charge it, lock it, fire it, see how much battery is left. That's it.

The Bads:

Coils are now becoming readily available, but I have 2 penguins because there were no US based stores that carried the coils.

The button is in a really easy to accidentally-get-pressed place – I am habitually bad at locking mods and haven't had a problem like this since I got off of tubes. 5 clicks to lock it. Easy fix.

No "Fancy" features – Charge it, lock it, fire it, see how much battery is left. That's it.

At 2ml or less, when left on its side coil can go dry and burn.

When the coil burns, it can contaminate a whole tank (8.8ml). This is not cheap, <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juicewise.

Coils are ceramic housing, and fragile. A bad drop can kill the coil.

Coils take a long time to prime, some have 'coil taste', but it seems to go away with an hour or three of regular use.

The Ugly:

Either you think its cute, or you don't.


They seem to be going for about 30 bucks, coils and extra tanks seem reasonably priced and Joyetech has generally been good about keeping coils in good supply once they start shipping.

I consider it to be sort of a bigger 'cigalike' or pod style device – think a huge myjet. Nothing fancy, but it gets it done.

I usually switch batteries every morning, moving the pod over to the freshly charged unit, and I refill the tank as needed (every couple of days).

I love the 0.28 ohm coil, really fast heat up, dense vapor, very consistent performance until the tank runs dry (or is left on its side with very little <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juice in it).

The 0.6 ohm, the airflow is… off. Some people I know further constrict the airflow, which I'm going to try on my next coil. I hope they release coils with tighter airflow in the future.

ALL SAID

I dig it. Its dumb, its easy, failing all else its a great backup.

It would also be great for vapers who don't want to deal with all the bells and whistles – consider this to be the equivelent of a 'feature phone'.

Strongly recommend for vapers who aren't into tweaking or the hobby aspect and want a fiddle free vape.

Have a good one!

Can a cop attempt to confiscate your mod?

So the other week I saw this guy vaping in a smoking area and for some odd reason the cop was telling him he was allowed to vape there and told him that if he didn't leave he didn't stop vaping in the smoking area he would have to confiscate his mod and arrest him for disorderly conduct

I can personally vouch for this vendor, as I know other apes can. Tony is a top, top vendor with already decent prices.
You're welcome [emoji41]

It has been Over 2 Years Since I got an 18650 battery, What Should I Buy?

I am really out of the loop, but my 18650s have been going down hill for a while now, and it is time to replace them.

It seems like the market has gotten more crowded and confusing since I last got some and I am clueless as to what I should get.

I generally use them with a mechanical and .5 ohm atty or I have just gotten this evic vtwo mini that can also use them.

any help would be massively appreciated 🙂

Thanks

Kylin Spitback

Yes I have the leaking from 510 but it isn't so bad for how great the vape is from this tank. I've had my first build in it and I can't seem to stop the Spitback now. Was great for a full tank, refilled and now I keep getting lava hitting my tongue. Up the wattage to same as before and all I get is hotter lava. Am I wicking this thing wrong? It's a beast and I love it I feel like I'm doing something wrong. Help me guys as at this point it's my favourite RTA to date.

Need recommendations for very unique circumstances!

I'm going to try and make this short and sweet. I am a vaping mailman. My route consists of parking at set locations and delivering in loops by foot. As you all know its starting to heat up with the summer approaching and I'm in a pickle.

How can a store my mod and spare batteries in a truck that can reach 130°+? I have a cooler but its usually packed with food and drinks. I can't carry my mod with me because I wear those sexy short shorts and it is cumbersome in my pocket!

I would rather not get a larger cooler because my truck is packed enough as it is and mine fits perfectly under the tray!

I didn't ask this in the questions thread because i feel I have a unique situation and want full visibility!

Edit: thank you to all that helped with ideas, I appreciate them all! 🙂

Nasty Juice at Cash Generator

I'm not sure if this is just a local thing, but the Cash Generator in Leicester city centre is running a sale on 10ml bottles of Nasty <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/<a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>eliquid_c_7.html”>juice. I'm currently vaping a bottle of Fat Boy that cost £2.99, the wife tells me there were about 6 different flavours and other brands available too. Apparently the sale ends today, so if you get a chance it may be worth popping in.

Mechanical mod tube metal choice doesn’t matter

[EDIT] Corrected math errors and recalculated for 50A instead of 30A. Throw away the other table….sorry![/EDIT]

There's a lot of debate regarding the best metal to choose for a mechanical mod. The resistances for the metals are certainly different but does that turn into noticeable differences in their voltage drops?

Do we have to choose a certain metal to get better performance?

Bottom Line: There is essentially no difference in the voltage drops in a mech mod tube for the different metals. Any differences in the performance of two different mechs will be due to the contacts, button, threads, maintenance, etc., and not the choice of tube metal.

This is important! One mod can still hit a lot harder than another. It just won't be solely due to the metal used for the tube.

Below are the tables for the voltage drops in two mech tubes, both 25mm in diameter. One has a thin wall, 1mm. The other has a thick wall, 3mm. The voltage drops and power loss at 50A for six different metals was calculated.

You can see that the voltage drops for silver, copper, gold, aluminum, and brass are so small that any practical differences between them are nonexistent.

The losses in stainless steel are a lot worse but even then it's only about 2.3W lost for 150W at the coils for the thin wall tube. The losses in the thick wall tube were only 0.84W for 150W at the coils.

What does this all mean?

The choice of metal for the tube is orders of magnitude less important than the threading, button, contact shape, and the maintenance you do. That's where the voltage drops happen. That's what is important for the best performance.

Tables: https://imgur.com/a/u6H2L

Note: These are calculated values. The resistances are down to the millionths of an ohm and any connections to the metals being tested would have resistances, and variances in resistance, much higher than what we were trying to measure. Getting accurate measurements would be very difficult. The resistivity of metals are well defined and just calculations can give us a very accurate picture of how these metals compare.
