This is VapeBeat’s review of Element E-Liquids MEGA range of E-Liquids feat. the Dripper Series, Tonix, Emulsions and FAR
Not so long ago, Element E-Liquid sent me a MASSIVE box of E-Liquid. And I really do mean MASSIVE. This was about three months ago and it has taken me since then to work my way through them. It was a long, enjoyable process and it likely saved me a TON of money in the process. Even more so now I’m running the SMOK TFV8 more or less all day, every day.
This was an unexpected gift, however, as it pretty much came out of the blue. Element’s CEO had read something I posted about 12 months ago, back when VapeBeat was in its genesis, liked what she read, and decided to get in contact and send me their entire range to review. And now three months later here we are.
I’m not sure exactly how many ML of E-Liquid they sent, but it must have been in the thousands. I was vaping a new flavour of E-Liquid pretty much every day for a month. After this I started to isolate the flavours I really liked and put them aside. Next I moved onto the flavours I wasn’t so keen on; again, I highlighted these, made a note, and moved along.
Element E-Liquid Review: The Good News
I liked pretty much all of them. I mean, I vaped the entire lot, even the one’s I wasn’t keen on, so even those were OK. Having said that, I’m not too fussy with E-Liquid flavours; I’ll try anything once – within reason. So the fact I got through all of them in the space of a couple of months isn’t all that telling.
Nevertheless, I passed out some bottle to friends and colleagues and the feedback was, for the most part, decent. They liked the branding. They liked the flavours. And they liked the way Element E-Liquid vaped. So far, so good.
My first experience with Element was ages ago. I was back home, visiting my parents, and I picked some up at the local vape shop – Paradox Vapes, in case you’re wondering – after the guy in the store recommended it. I can’t remember what flavour I got but I do remember being impressed enough to buy a few more bottles next time I went in.
So when I got a box of the stuff delivered to my flat, you can imagine how excited I got. I cannot tell you what a beautiful sight it was to behold, all those bottles, glistening away. Element sent me a selection of E-Liquids from its Dripper Range, two 180ml bottles from its FAR range, and a bunch from its Premium Custom Blends. In total there were like 20-odd bottles.
Element E-Liquid – FAR Range “Candy Punch”
Element describes this flavour as, “an intoxicating candy blend, this vibrant coupling of sweet and colourful fruit come alive with every puff. Brimming with mind-blowing rainbow candy, this delectable treat is the golden ticket to relive those fond childhood memories.”
FAR Candy Punch is available in the following mixes:
- Choose 50/50s in 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, and 18mg nicotine.
- 70+ VG strengths come in 0mg, 3mg and 6mg nicotine.
- 50/50s come in 10mL and 20mL frosted bottles.
- Drippers come in 20mL frosted bottles
- 100mL come in unicorn bottles, packaged inside a FAR-branded spray can
The spray can is a nice touch, it certainly sets Element apart from the crowd. I cannot remember ever seeing E-Liquid packaged in such a unique and cool manner. The flavour is seriously on point as well if you’re into sweet, fruity E-Liquid. I vaped this first and was immediately impressed with the flavour which is complex, tangy and very addictive.
Element E-Liquid – Dripper Series
This is the line of E-Liquid I have come across the most in my travels up and down the country. Most vape shops worth their salt tend to stock it and, while it is a premium E-Liquid, it’s priced very aggressively compared to some brands’ offerings and it tastes great to boot, so it’s no wonder really why this is a popular choice with retailers.
The dripper series is an 80/20 mix and has won a bunch of awards since it first landed. Pound for pound this stuff is great, all-day-vaping material. My favourite flavours in this range, though I do
- Pink Lemonade
- Watermelon Chill
- Banana Nut
The flavours I wasn’t too keen on were:
- Frost – it’s menthol and it SERIOUSLY packs a punch!
- Key Lime Cookie – I hate Key Lime-anything, so this is just me. If you like Key Lime flavour, don’t let me put you off.
- Fresh Squeeze – it’s orange flavoured and, if I’m honest, it really didn’t do anything for me. I like orange, just not when I’m vaping.
Element E-Liquid – Emulsions
Element’s Emulsion line are all 50/50 and packed full of BIG flavours. Next to the FAR flavour, these were my favourites by quite a margin, as the flavour combinations were simply off the hook.
The most notable of which are as follows:
- Strawberry Whip + Banana Nut
- Strawberry Whip + Watermelon Chill
- Pink Grapefruit + Blueberry
- Green Apple + Kiwi Redberry
Element E-Liquid – Tonix
NOW THIS IS WHERE S**T gets REAL. This new line from Element is amazing! I couldn’t get enough of Tonix, which, in my opinion, was perfect across the range, though a special shout-out has to go to Peanut Butter & Blueberry Jam which was simply sublime. I could vape that all day the rest of the my life and die a happy man.
The other flavours in the range – American Apple Pie, Blood Orange, Cherry Almond and Tangy Tart – were all great, tasty and I enjoyed vaping all of them but the crown, IMO, has to go to PB & Blueberry Jam. It’s just so goddamn tasty.
Out of everything I got I would say Tonix was the standout line for me. It has everything you’d expect from a premium line-up of E-Liquid – great flavour, uniqueness, excellent packaging – and much more besides. Do yourself a favour and pick some up as soon as you can. You will not regret it.
Element E-Liquid Review: The Downside?
There isn’t really one, though one thing I did notice when testing all these fine, fine E-Liquids was that my coils weren’t lasting as long as usual. The reason for this, according to a few of my sources, is that Element is a very sticky E-Liquid and this of course clogs up your coils faster. Now, the reason for this is all that flavour you get, so it is something of a double-edged sword.
I tend to build most of my coils these days, so it’s not quite as bad. If you’re rocking a traditional sub-ohm tank, however, you may notice your coils not quite lasting as long as before. Still, when you consider the quality ingredients, flavour and choice that Element offer this is hardly something to be too concerned by, as the actual effect in relative terms isn’t all that pronounced. Certainly nothing to lose sleep over anyway.
I also like that Element ship ALL their E-Liquids in glass bottles. This is better for flavour, the environment and it looks and feels better in your hand on sat inside your vape cabinet (yes, I have a vape cabinet).
Element E-Liquid Review: Conclusion
I liked Element A LOT before getting this haul in, so I didn’t really need any convincing of the company’s pedigree during testing. What I wasn’t aware of, however, was just how many ranges Element actually produces.
Tonix was a revelation and something I will continue to go back to. FAR was decent as well, but not quite up to the standard of Tonix, and the company’s Dripper series… well, it’s already a classic, so you don’t need me to tell you how good it is.
If you haven’t tried Element E-Liquid and you’re looking for something new I would 100% recommend you check them out. In order to appreciate what Element is all about I’d order a selection from each range. I would also insist that you buy some PB & Blueberry Jam as well because it is one of the easiest E-Liquids I have ever had the pleasure of ingesting. And I’ve had A LOT.
