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.
While 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.
