My. Von Erl. Tabak Menthol

Tastes much better, very subjective of course. Reminds me real menthol smoke.



Nice packaging.



Next is Le Patriote, which I have already tried in my  Kayfun M3 and like it. We'll see.

Re-filling My. Von Erl. pods

It didn't take long. I finished my first pod and, instead of throwing it away, decided to re-fill it. I know, that was not the reason to buy it in the first place, but I'm a hobbyist after all :)

Actually, it was pretty easy and straight forward. All you need is a pair of tweezers.

1. Pull out the base (with coil and cotton) and also little "plastic chimney", which covers the base and attached to the metal tube.



2. Fill the pod with your juice (it takes about 1.6 ml)



3. Attach that little "plastic chimney" to the base and push the assembly back into the pod



4. Make sure that everything sits secure and you are good to go




Not sure how long it will last or how many times you can re-fill the pod, but so far no leaking and it seems working just fine.

Cheers,

My. Von Erl.

Lately, I feel tired of all the maintenance that my style of vaping is required. Re-wicking, re-coiling, dealing with leaking, etc. Even clearomizers still sometimes pain in the neck. I also find myself constantly vaping rather than having an indulging “smoke break”. Yes, the quality of vape is excellent but my life doesn't revolve around vaping gear and sometimes I just need a quick, "no hassle", nicotine fix. After reading some positive reviews I decided to try what by many considered as the most convenient way to get this nicotine fix - the new generation of cigalikes. Powerful and yet small and light, capable of producing decent vape without a hassle. My.VonErl. is my first foray into the closed systems.


Designed in Austria and assembled in Canada, the e-liquid is also made in Canada.


Even my smallest combo is still way heavier than Von Erl which you can use "hands-free", like a small cigar.



Compact, light and super easy to use. No buttons, power or airflow adjustments. Leak proof, pocket-friendly. Very well made and sleek. Kind of an Apple approach to get a quick nicotine fix.

The draw is very consistent but a bit loose. In my opinion it's more suited for restricted directly-to-lung hits rather than mouth-to-lung.

On a few occasions device misfired and I sucked some of the e-juice. I don't like the supplied "Tabak", it has some floral notes. Definitely not the best choice for tobacco flavor, considering that Labo LVS has their excellent Le Patriote and Movember e-liquids.

Yes, it's way more expensive than DIY approach but I don't mind to pay extra for the convenience.
Apparently you can re-fill the pods, just check youtube, but in my opinion, it defeats the purpose.

I am not sure yet what role “closed systems” will play in my "smoke free" life, but so far I like the experience. JUUL is next on the list.  

Cheers,

Victor
