Reviewing the Vapourlites Blueberry/Strawberry E Juice

eliquid-blueberryHi everyone. So I was asked by the good folks over at Vapourlites to give their e-juice a try since I have done reviews for them in the past for their e-cigarettes, so naturally I agreed. 

Now I will be the first to be honest and tell you all that I have never used a refillable e-cigarette until today. I felt a bit ‘special’ when it came to filling it, if you know what I mean.900mah-ego-t-battery-ce4-atomizer-e-cigarette-kit-0901

So once I figured out where to put the e-juice the next problem was getting the bottle open. I must say that UK standards for child safety locking devices are superior to ours here in the US, as it took me a good 5 minutes to figure out how to finally get the bloody thing open (see previous ‘special’ reference.) So thankfully my eGot-T e-cigarette came pre-charged so I didn’t need to wait around for it to charge. And at first I must admit when I had filled the reservoir and took my first couple of drags, I didn’t not have the blueberry taste that I was hoping for, but by the 5th puff it was there. Much like the other products that they sent me in the past to try I was really surprised by the fact that the vapor was so smooth and light. It wasn’t heavy and harsh like traditional cig’s. And the delightful taste really enhanced the sensation of smoking.

eliquid-strawberryI am one of those people who loved flavored cigarettes and especially love cloves. So having tasted the Blueberry and the Strawberry I can only guess at how amazingly wonderful their other flavors that they offer would be. What I truly love about Vapourlites is that they come in various strengths from 0mg – 18mg (or 1.8%) Nicotine. They have a deal where you can buy 3 flavors for £10 (roughly $17USD) which is an amazing deal as I have looked around on e-Bay and they don’t even have those types of deals. Each vile is about $7.00 which is a really good price as you get about 200-225 traditional cigarettes. Last time I was at the store and priced cigs they were almost $10 a pack, and here in Washington we pay a Sin Tax which makes them almost $13.

Also it has been suggested that smoking e-cigarettes is healthier for you, and in many cases you can smoke in public establishments that normally ban smoking.

So if you are ready to make the switch and want a good quality product for not a lot of money I really do suggest heading over to http://www.vapourlites.com and pick yourself up a starter kit, or some e-juice if you are already an e-cig owner. You wont be disappointed.

Iwerkz Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard Review

I recently purchased the Iwerkz Universal Bluetooth Keyboard for Win/Mac/Android and it was love at first sight.
I was on the market for a Bluetooth keyboard after I had purchased a Nook, and wanted something to input a little bit easier than the onscreen keyboard. So after doing some research and watching a YouTube video about Iwerkz I decided to go with it. Right out of the box the keyboard was charged enough for me to sync and play with. It was super easy to figure out because well lets face it, I’m a guy and don’t read instructions. I also don’t read instructions as a general rule of thumb, especially if I’m going to do a review on something, because I was to see how intuitive the item is. Well this keyboard couldn’t be any easier to use and sync up with my device. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3, and a Bluetooth radio for my laptop but I have yet to try and sync them with the keyboard, so for the sake of this review its going to be based on me using it with my Nook.

So right out of the box I went into my Nook’s settings and enabled the Bluetooth, and then turned the power on my keyboard and pushed the connect button. Within 5 seconds my Nook had detected it and with a push of the icon on screen and entering the pairing numbers it was synced. I downloaded Android Open Office and started typing away. Now the keyboard itself is full Qwerty and sports 65 keys including a Function key that allows for other functions to be used on the keyboard too. The keyboard has the ability to control a media player, open a web browser, has a home button for PC/Mac/Android, full number keys, full F keys, page up/down, home and end, etc. Bluetooth 3.0, built in rechargeable lithium batter, 44hr work time, 30 day standby, 2hr charging, up to 30ft function, micro0USB interface, a protective case that doubles as a stand, and energy saver mode.

The one thing that I don’t like is how close the keys are to each other and I have big hands and some of the button placement is going to take some time getting used to but all in all I am very happy with it. The board itself is made out of aluminum and is pretty stable once you place it on a table or what have you. It doesn’t feel really flimsy but isnt completely solid either. When you are using it on a table its just like any other keyboard in its solid performance, but holding it you can kinda bend it a little, and if you were not careful and over extended it, could break it. But with normal adult use I think this is going to be the start of a beautiful friendship. I also like the fact that it came in different colors, like blue and white, black and white, and this fun red and black zebra print.

Also as mentioned above the case doubles as a holder for your phone, or tablet. The one thing that I don’t like about the case/stand is that it is plastic. I would like to have seen it be metal, but again with proper handling it should be fine.

All in all I give this product a 8 out of 10 stars. I would have liked to see the stand/case be made out of metal, and able to house a tablet with a case in the main groove. However, there is a little tray that can be extended that you could place your tablet in but for the set up as shown below, you can not hold a tablet and a tablet case in the slot. Other than that this is a sweet set up. I purchased mine from Newegg.com for $40.00 + shipping. The other thing that I didn’t like is there is no way to register this product, but it does come with a limited 90-day warranty so I guess that is good?
