VapeWild's Thoughts & Reviews
Out of all the pod mods I’ve gotten my hands on, the style of the Vapeccino is the one I like the most thus far. It’s got a super futuristic vibe that I dig. It’s reminiscent of something out of Star Trek - and that speaks to me being a trekkie and all. The pods are simple to fill and replace, its pretty much pop open the bottom plug on the pod and fill. I like how easy the Vapeccino Mate1 is to draw as well. I’ve had to struggle to get some decent clouds on other pods but the Mate1 is a puff machine that is equal parts stealthy and cloudy - just depends on what mood you are in.
The Not So Dope
Now with the Vapeccino Mate1, it faces the same problem a lot of pod mods seem to face when working with normal e-liquids: muted flavor. The bigger issue is that even when you give it a big monster of a drag it still doesn’t give you the flavor you want, it’s more like if you had tainted air rather than flavorful clouds. I double checked to make sure I wasn’t using a max VG blend as I know they wick quite a bit slower - nope, just muted flavor. With nic salts it definitely fares better, as it should, but it’s something to keep in mind if you choose to use this with your freebase E-juice. The other thing that bugs me is the vibrating. I know its meant to alert you when it’s dying but it also alerts you when its charging, when its done charging, when it’s on, when it powers off - it’s a bit much and if you know anything about technology you’d know that vibrating drains batteries (main reason my phone stays on silent instead of vibe).
If you are someone who likes fashion AND form, this is 100% the pod mod for you. The Vapeccino is cool to look at, easy to carry and a cinch to use. Just bear in mind that if you use it with regular e-liquid - you may be in for a bit of a disappointment.
When you’re looking for a solid built pod vape, look no further than the Vapeccino MATE1. This sleek, seductive device was engineered with the futuristic vaper in mind that is seeking stealth, a smooth hit, and a pure flavor. Housing a coil that is proprietary to Vapeccino alone, the Golden Core Tech, or GCT, features antioxidization that prevents the carbides from the eliquid from adhering to the coil, the Vapeccino MATE1 kit is the future of pod mod vaping. The GCT allows for a cleaner vape experience, without needlessly worrying about burning.
In terms of style, the MATE1 is super thin and comes in two classic colors, Legend Black and Eagle Grey. This pod mod takes smart vaping to the next level too. Because the device is equipped with what Vapeccino dubs as “Intelligent Vibration,” an almost haptic feedback that vibrates once when your atomizer is loaded, twice when your power is low, and three times when there is no connection between the atomizer and the mod. It even features a unique lighting system that is color coded for battery life. Green for 60-100% battery, blue for 35-60% battery, and red for 0-35%. Smart, indeed.
What makes the MATE1 so intelligent, in addition to all the aforementioned features, it serves both mouth-to-lung and direct lung vapers with a unit that can recognize your pod immediately and provide the type of vape experience you seek. Either 1.0ohm or 1.5ohm will be instantly read and recognized by the system and you’ll feel the difference with each puff. This type of versatility in pod mods will set the standard for vapers everywhere.
This device also contains side-to-bottom airflow which creates less condensation and prevents leaks and the dual ejuice intake holes makes for faster transfer of juices and reduces dry burn. Housing an internal 410mAh battery, the MATE1 has a massive standby time of up to 56 days and guarantees at least 165 puffs before your battery wears down completely. This is almost unprecedented with these smaller mods. And when you’re in a hurry, it only needs 25 minutes for a full charge. What else could you possibly need in a mod?
