My Von Erl Starter Kit: Vape Overview

my-von-erl-starter-kit2

The My Kit from Von Erl represents the next evolution in vape devices, and is among a variety of new styled “Liquid Pod” eCigarettes; taking disposable capsules rather than using a refillable tank.

While we’ve been used to using refillable chambers and pipettes over the last couple of years, Von Erl have looked to the earlier style of ecigarettes for inspiration; the “cigalike”.

The My Kit takes the size and form of the early cigalikes, but while these were often cigarette coloured and cylindrical (aesthetically designed to look like a tobacco cigarette), the MY from Von Erl looks more akin to a USB stick than a cigalike, with a definitively black finish and an oblong shape. Similar to the cigalike, the My is extremely pocket-friendly, and weighs very little.

While the early Cigalikes were completely disposable, requiring the user to chuck away every component after expiration, these new ‘pod’ style devices only feature a disposable “top part”, similar to a basic CE4 Clearmiser. Once a pod (which contains both the heating element and eLiquid) is finished, a brand new one can be easily inserted into the battery portion, giving it a fresh coil with a refill of eJuice.

my-von-erl-starter-kit3While currently Von Erl have manufactured their own basic flavours, including straight Tobacco (Tabak) and Menthol (Tabak Menthol), as well as fruity and other flavours like Cherry, Pina Colada, and Café Latte, there are already plans to produce Liquid pods featuring some of vape culture’s biggest brands, such as the award winning Frisco Vaper, Cuttwood, Taffy Man, and Halcyon Vapors!

Utilising this disposable pod method of refilling, the My kit is mess free and almost completely leak proof, as it’s inherent ‘plug in and play’ feature means refilling the device takes literally seconds. Von Erl have also made the My Kit incredibly easy to use, requiring the user to just inhale on the mouth-piece in order to vape; it’s completely button free.

One of the only downsides to the My kit is its relatively small battery size. The vast majority of vapers would be used to batteries that hold at least a 1000mAh of power, but the dinky My has just a 350mAh battery to utlise. While this is to be expected, due to the smaller nature of the My anyway, some vapers looking to get extensive battery power from the device may be left feeling short.

However, it should be noted that the Von Erl My isn’t designed to use high volumes of power in one go, it’s designed to be small and compact, and easy to use for beginners. It would then seem that the smaller battery size is just a small price to pay for compactness and ease of use.

Vape Refill Pods And Closed Systems – The Future Of Vaping?

vape-pods-future-of-vaping-blog

In the wake of the new regulations on the vaping industry, industrious designers are coming up with new and inventive ways to deliver an excellent vape experience, while still maintaining a regulation-friendly level of control and safety.

Instead of the mix and match of different eliquids and vape hardware that we’re used to, this new way of doing things is actually closer to the cigalikes of old. These new devices are based on the idea of having a device and using specific refills for it, streamlining the entire vaping experience to make it both more convenient for seasoned vapers and easier to start for new ones.

While it’s very easy as a vaper to fear this new wave of devices as heralds of the end of the vaping as we know it, it’s important to note that current, open, customisable devices are not going away – these new refill based vapes are simply another approach to the same problem with a common goal: Helping smokers switch to vaping, away from harmful tobacco.

So what can we expect to see from this vape pod revolution? Let’s take a quick look at some of the devices coming out this year:

Cync by Vape Forward

The designers of the excellent VaporFlask, Vape Forward have also decided to get into the vape pod game with their Cync device.

While their Cync e-cigarette (or Advanced Closed Platform) looks very similar in form factor and size to existing devices like the Juul, their main selling point is in the availability of a large range of pods from some of the vape industries more well-known and established eliquid brands, such as Cosmic Fog, Space Jam, Beard Vape Co, Five Pawns, and Cuttwood Sauce. The Cync will be available in a multiple battery sizes, and features two different capacity pods; 1.5ml and 2.5ml

The starter kit will feature a 380mAh battery, along with a 1.5ml pod, and a USB charging cable. With current strengths ranging from 6mg through to 18 and 24mg, and onto 36mg, there will likely be a restriction on the higher strengths in order to comply with the 20mg maximum, in compliance with the Tobacco Product Directive in the European Union.

XOLO by XOLO

XOLO’s self-titled all-in-one device is aimed squarely at those who wish to simplify their vaping habits. It’s designed to retain the high performance that we get from the more powerful devices, but in a compact “cigalike” size and form.

The XOLO All in One device incorporates a built in 2000mAh battery along Temperature Control functions, and is perhaps the closest of the new pod based systems to the existing mods that we’ve been used to on the current market in recent years. The user experience is intended to be as simple as possible, with XOLO aiming for the broadest reach that they can in terms of consumer base.

Their idea is that a simple device such as the XOLO could be a more effective tool for converting existing tobacco smokers to vaping, than with a more complicated device. The refills available for the XOLO will have a built in 0.25 ohm coil, as well as 10ml of eLiquid.von-erl-my-vape-refill-system-uk

 

My. by Von Erl

Known primarily for the Erlkonigen line of high end rebuildable tanks, Austrian engineers Von Erl have brought out the My.

The My is an all-in-one pod based vape, with an additional full stop.

It features a 350mAh battery that can be simply charged via USB, and will contain the effortless and easy to change Liquidpods that many of the other devices also feature.

Their classic Liquidpod has a max nicotine strength of 18mg, and is a classic Tobacco flavour.

It is designed to be a small, easy to use device that is as stealthy, compact, as well as being quite cute in appearance!

MyVapors MyJet by Wismec

Wismec have teamed up with MyVapors to produce the Myjet, which straddles the line between pod based vaping and more customisable styles of vaping. Featuring an eLiquid capacity of 1.2ml, along with a 350mAh battery with a 20watt output, the Myjet is convenient as it is functional.

While it retains the pod system that is common to the rest of the devices here, Wismec decided to sell unfilled pods, allowing the user to use their favourite liquid.

Although there will be pre-filled pods available from some of the vape industries biggest brands including Cuttwood, ANMLMad Hatter, One Hit Wonder, and NKTR, among many others.

The Myjet is set to be available in two different variations; the Express Kit, and the Full Kit, the latter featuring an 18650 battery that functions as a dedicated pocket-sized charger to recharge the device when its not in use.


These new all in one devices will be available in a huge range of shapes and sizes, each tuned to offer a specific sort of experience. Some, such as the Cync made by Vape Forward will focus solely on delivering an experience that is as close to a cigarette as possible, while others such as the XOLO aim to simplify the entire vaping experience while providing a vape that will satisfy those who are already experienced and committed vapers.

Despite the different outputs and form factors, these devices all take the same approach; give people a set and forget type of device that requires no fussing with bottles of liquid or coils for a tank, and provide simple, easy to use cartridges or pods that a person simply needs to insert and vape.

As the year progresses, we expect to see many more of these new wave of devices being released. If you’d like speak to us about Closed System Vapes, or anything else on our site, please do get in contact with our team.
