You have been reading my blog long enough (when I write it) to know that I don’t write reviews only to write reviews. I pick and choose what I write about, and I have “rules”. With only one exception, (a bottle of e-liquid from V4L) I have chosen and purchased, at my own expense, each item I have reviewed. Yes, I DO use coupons and discounts, just as you do, if they are available. I would like to think that it is due to my “pride” and “the ability to say whatever I want” in a review. But, honestly, I think that I am so sporadic when I write, that I manage to stay off the list of sought after reviewers. Does this keep me from writing a review when I am moved to do so? No! When I find something really outstanding, I want to share it!!
let me introduce you to:
Zeus-the father of gods and men. The sky god, he controls lightning, which he uses as a weapon, and thunder. He is king on Mount Olympus, the home of the Greek gods. He is also credited as the father of Greek heroes and the ancestor of many other Greeks.
So, what is his name doing on my new e-cig? Lets find out!
To quote Vapor4Life:The Vapor Zeus story began two years ago as an invention created by Steve Milin. He wanted an electronic cigarette battery that embodied vaping bliss. After countless prototypes and thousands of hours of his life poured into this product, he continued to search for ways to cement the Vapor Zeus as god of the e-cigarette battery industry. Finally, the finished product is here and we are thrilled to showcase our latest and greatest. If there’s one Vapor4Life product that says “Steve,” it’s the Vapor Zeus.
So, what is it, and why am I impressed? I purchased the “Vapor Zeus Dual Mode Starter Kit”. In my package was one battery, (also 2 Smilomizers, a slim-line charger and a USB cord). I chose black, but its also available in a “cigar” color. What makes this battery different is that it is a REGULATED 5 VOLTS. First, the POWER is different. With all of the (non-VV) batteries you have been purchasing, the power has been a NON-REGUATED 3.7 Volts. What that means is that at “fully charged” you might be getting 3.7 or you might have 4.2, and as you use it, the power decreases, until it finally blinks and fails. It is “un-regulated”. The Zeus fully charged runs at 5V, an hour later, 5V…it maintains 5V! Not even with the big, expensive “unmentionable” do I vape at 5 Volts! But just a few puffs with the Zeus convinced me that 5V vaping is really impressive!!!
And HERE is NEWS…the Zeus is the only battery that I know of that is “DUAL MODE”…I can use
it as an “auto” or, by pressing the button 5 times, set it in “manual” mode! WOW! I NEVER
thought THAT would be important to me, I’m a MANUAL girl, right? Well, it turns out that isn’t
necessarily true! Holy Shades of Smoking/Vaping, Batman!! “Puffing” away in auto mode with the Zeus was VERY reminiscent of my old analog days! Oh, the Joys of Vapes!
Ok. Lets talk about a few things…in diameter, the Zeus is the same size as my egos, but, fully assembled with a smilomizer, it measures 7 3/8 inches long. It is more “cigar” than cigarette, but I do not find that to be too terribly horrible. It is NOT for stealth vaping! It is a BIG MAMA!! The first thing you might notice is that it has a 1/4″ or so SQUARE button that, to ME is much easier to operate than those small round buttons. It has a good, solid “click” when you choose to use it…but I found that I tended to use Zeus in the “auto” mode. Also, an improvement, that the button doesn’t light up the room at night. It glows with a soft green. It has AWAYS been especially irritating to have my mod button “blinding” me while I am driving/vaping at night. I am ESPECIALLY sensitive to lights and halos in my night vision, and the light on my battery/mod was just one more distraction I did not need! At the “tip” end of the battery is the mini-USB connector, used to charge the battery OR (news flash) use as a Pass Through!!! WOW!!!
Now, to the really important part! The carto is now a “Smileomizer”! It looks to be a cross between a regular carto and an ego mega carto…but with a few changes….first you notice a rounded rubber tip, nice and chewable…and it is just a smidge shorter. But, the real change seems to be in the filter material…what once looked like some fluff stolen from Grammas best quilt has grown up to be a softer, seemingly more absorbent material. I took the full five minutes to fill with my favorite e-liquid….and all was well! The carto performs beautifully, and gives VERY little taste to your juice. And I’m very impressed bythe overall performance! You can also use regular V4L WOW cartos on the Zeus, and, I am supposing LR cartos in your DCTs. I tried the regular WOW cartos, but I was SO impressed with the Smileomizer, I went back to IT immediately!!
I would say that Mr. Smilin Milin succeeded in his quest…This vape is for the grown-ups!
I hope that you add the Zeus to your vape line up! I think you will be pleasantly surprised!!
