    Had one for a week, was about to do a post for it.

    Amazing hardware, pods fit nicely with a satisfying click, easy to fill, looks sexy.

    Vape is cold, dry and frankly rubbish.

    Grr lol As long as it doesn't taste burnt i should be ok lol

    Boulder Rock burnt hits
    XFire burnt hits
    Juul pain in butt. Pods are over priced junk anymore.
    Ziip pods (Juul compatible) burnt hits

    If not good, ill go back to MVE I guess.

    I thought the MI-ONE pod was pretty good. I love my Mi-One and this is compatible with the flavor. I'm also a HUGE fan of the SMPO (most like cig draw imho) but is not refillable. The pods are any in price range of $8 to $20 for 2. Flavor pods are a generic fruit, tobacco, and menthol.

    Hmm? So my findings are mixed.

    PRO:

    1. Design is very sleek.

    2. Weight is hardly noticeable.

    3. Feel is nice. (Not so square edged like JUUL.)

    4. Ease of use and refil (though little rubber plug a lil pain to get on off I think).

    5. Decent vape production on typical draw.

    6. Very sensitive so smallest puff will trigger.

    7. Zero leaks or juice on lips.

    CONS:

    1. Priming is a MUST and even properly done (beyond suggestion in manual), ...

    1a. Pod that came with kit tasted like plastic and eventually a slight burnt taste.

    1b. Second pod purchased separate was better but still a loss of true flavor.

    3. Pod price is a touch high.

    4. Battery doesn't last very long but expected.

    5. Very annoying air sound on pull. There is two vent holes (1 per side) but only one works (depends on what side of pod in).

    Disclaimer:

    I ,thus far, have only used a typical VG PG liquid. White Cloud Bora Bora 50mg. Not sure what the ratio is. Perhaps the pods will play nice when using a thicker nic salt?

    How is the draw compared to the myjet? I was looking at this today, and please let us know how many times you can re-fill it. I use 50/50. I just love the draw on the myjet, but pods are expensive as I can usually only get 2 maybe 3 re-fills out of them

    Nothing like the MyJet. If you like the jet, you will like the Warlock Peas. Pods are cheap.

    This! The RUBI has a quite open draw. Not for strict MTLers.

    I really can't say because the taste was so bad. I think Im tasting the ceramic coil. Yuck! Support is sending new pods for me to try. Maybe a bad batch but who knows lol

    The draw I explained above.

    I don't care for the MyJet. The mouth piece bugs me and the pods go bad on 3rd or 4th fill IMO.

    To date, the only POD systems that gives great flavor, easy to refill and rewick is the MVE... Im actually using JUUL right now though. $$$ grr.

    Ps. RUBI is $20 for 3 pods I think.

    Been really liking the VUSE Ciro and just got an Aspire Breeze with 45mg nic salt juice. How does the Rubi stack up with those too. Unfortunately never tried Juul for a point of reference.

    I think the unsafe ceramic thing is something of a myth. I know one maker couldn't seem to come up with a ceramic coil as promised and then said they were dangerous, but well-manufactured ceramic coils don't really seem to give a big risk, many people (myself included) use them sometimes.

    I don't know much about your pod mod so can't be much help there I am afraid.

    Ceramic is very safe. Pretty much inert. Accidentally burning a cotton or rayon wick is far worse for you.

    I used Vuse many many moons ago for a short time. Then they had changed their filters to tanks and I still have some of those unopened as emergency backups. I did not know they made something else. Not for me - but interesting.

    Um, that's a problem with some of those pod systems, there sometimes isn't much to be done about flavor issues. I guess it's possible that your device (is it fixed wattage?) and coil (are there different coil options?) aren't vaping it at a temperature that is acceptable for the juice, so you get bad flavor.

    I suppose your coil could be burnt? If it tastes "like ash" maybe it needs to be replaced, or the whatever that device uses to vaporize the eliquid (sorry I don't use pods, at all). If there's an airflow adjustment, you could try more air. If there is a higher resistance option, I guess you could try that?

    Hopefully someone more familiar will be along, but I'd think off the top of my head that it just is overheating your juice, that and/or the possibility that your coil may have burned out and may need replacement.

    Good luck,

    Anna

    +1 For warlock PEAS. I have 2 PEAS.

    Dont understand why people like the JUUL so much. Besides the high Nic content and high availability, it wasn't good at all.

    The PEAS pod are around ~$1.00 each. Refill them 3-5 times and move on to the next. It's great. Cover one of the hole if you like tighter draw. It's very close to the MyJet.
