    Heisenberg vape juice review 

    Vampire Vape are a name on the lips (quite literally) of vapers all around the UK. They do some fantastic flavours, with Heisenberg being up there with the best of them. 

    Firstly, let’s just start up with the name; Heisenberg. 

    We think this was a great marketing ploy, and probably accounts for how popular this e-liquid juice became. 

    There are two theories: the most likely one is that it was named after the character in Breaking Bad who had his own secret lab. 

    The other theory is that it’s named after the famous German physicist Heisenberg. According to Wikipedia he came up with something called the Uncertainty Principle. 

    And that is exactly what you get with Vampire Vape Heisenberg, as nobody can honestly work out what the exact flavours are, and whoever you ask will give you a completely different view on the taste. 

    We will come onto that uncertain taste in a moment though, let’s start off with the bottle design. 

    Bottle and packaging design 

    heisenberg vape review

    Heisenberg comes in a typical liquid bottle with a pink lid and basis labelling. It’s the classic Vampire Vape branding, with the cartoon Dracula character on it.

    It’s clearly labelled as being made in the UK, and you can see the blue colour of the Heisenberg juice which has a syrupy consistency. 

    It’s honestly nothing special to look at, but Vampire Vape has put the real magic into the e-liquid itself. 

    Let’s check out the taste.

    The smell and taste 

    We always do the smell taste first; unscrew the lid and inhale the flavours. 

    It certainly smells very interesting, with a fruit aroma, but it’s still quite hard to place exactly what fruits you are smelling. 

    All we can say is that you’ve got a berry smell, similar to summer fruits. 

    No Heisenberg vape review would be complete without the most important part though; the taste and flavour. 

    If you recall, we mentioned earlier that the exact flavour of Heisenberg is a closely guarded secret. In fact, we had 3 of our store staff try to describe exactly what it tasted like, and all of them came back with slightly different opinions. 

    This is what makes Heisenberg such as intriguing e-liquid juice. Here are just some of the comments: 

    “I think it’s got blackcurrant, berries, blueberry and raspberries in it, followed by a smooth menthol taste that is really crisp, clean, refreshing. I like it but might want to swap liquids after a few days to take a break from it.”

    “I get a blueberry undertone, or maybe it’s blackcurrant, I honestly can’t put my finger exactly on what it tastes like, but I love it. It definitely makes for a good every day vape, you won’t be running through tanks of juice.” 

    “Heisenberg gives me a berry menthol flavour. Not an insane amount of vapour due to the high PG and it’s heavy on the throat just how I like it. It’s got enough of a hit to it because of the PG.”

    So, what can we say to conclude the taste test on our Vampire Vape Heisenberg review? 

    Depending on who you ask, you’re going to get a slightly different response, but a common recurring theme would be: 

    • Berry flavours including blackcurrant, berries, blueberry and raspberries.
    • Extremely menthol, particularly on the exhale. 

    Summing up, you’re going to get berries and menthol. 

    What Flavour is Vampire Vape Heisenberg? 

    Heisenberg is the original flavour from Vampire Vape, and the manufacturer calls it “the daddy of all day vapes”. Vampire Vape describe Heisenberg as having a combination of flavours, but don’t tell you exactly what’s in it. 

    However, after our review we can best say that we experienced a berry, raspberry, blueberry, and blackcurrant flavour. 

    What does Heisenberg vape taste like? 

    You can expect to get a combination of those flavours above, with some people we also asked saying that it’s quite a subtle fruity undertone, followed up with a crisp menthol taste. 

    On the inhale, expect the berry flavours, and on the exhale, you will get the menthol. If you’ve ever smoked menthol cigarettes, you will know what we mean about the exhale – it’s a similar menthol vape taste. 

    What’s in Heisenberg vape juice? 

    Here’s the thing; Vampire Vape don’t tell you. It’s a closely guarded secret other than the fact they say “berry flavours” on the packaging. 

    What we can tell you though, is that Vampire Vape Heisenberg must have some fruit mix flavour and possibly even an aniseed in it to produce the menthol effect.

    Our final verdict

    If you are a tobacco user looking for a great fruit flavour to get you started, Vampire Vape Heisenberg is a great choice. 

    During this Heisenberg vape juice review, our store guys agreed that you probably wouldn’t vape this e-liquid as much as you could a tobacco-based juice, as you might get vaper’s tongue. 

    Tobacco lovers might find it too sweet and fruity, but as with anything, it’s down to testing and personal preference. 

    However, if you are looking for a juice that provides a perfect balance of fruity berry flavours that you can flip and switch with other liquids to give you a great weekly variation, this nails it. 

    But, if there’s one thing we can guarantee after our Vampire Vape Heisenberg e-liquid review, it’s this – if you buy it, you are probably going to keep going back to it due to the unique, and secret taste!

  • Twelve Monkeys Matata Review

    Today we wanted to review one of our most popular juice flavours, from a brand you should know and love by now. If you’ve not tried Twelve Monkeys, here’s a little insight into what you can expect from the Matata flavour. 

    Read on for our Twelve Monkeys Matata review where we explain the bottle design, taste, vapour volume, throat hit, cloud size, and then our final verdict. 

    Before we get into the full details though, check out a video review of Twelve Monkeys Matata that was recently published to YouTube by one of our expert team. 

    Bottle and packaging design

    OK, so we know that the taste of the e-juice is far more important than the design and packaging, but first impressions do count, and Twelve Monkeys don’t often get it wrong. 

    Matata is no exception. 

    You get the classic 12 Monkeys design here with bright colours, and the signature logo and branding. 

    But let’s cut to the chase; how does it smell and taste? 

    The smell and taste 

    The first thing we always do with a new vape liquid is a smell test. 

    On the nose, Twelve Monkeys Matata gives you a beautiful grape smell. Interesting, we never really consider grape having a smell, but you can definitely get that aroma after taking the bottle cap off. 

    Moving onto the taste. For our 12 Monkeys Matata juice review, we used a Voopoo 2 (check out our kit discounts), here’s what our chief taster said:

     “If you’re looking for a flavour that is not too sweet and that you can vape all day long, then Matata is on point. It is one of the nicest all day vapes we've tried it in a while. It’s strong enough to mean you can probably vape it all day without getting sick or bored of the juicy flavours. You know that feeling when you’ve had a few too many alcopops, and you just can’t stand the taste anymore… well, you don’t get that with Matata.” 

    Matata combines apple and grape flavours to create a slight sourness in a fruity blend. You really get that crisp apple as the main taste, with a hint of grape. 

    Bottom line is, it’s not too sickly and is a very smooth vape. 

    Cloud size 

    12 Monkeys Matata has an 80% VG blend. 

    If you use a sub ohm tank or kit, that means you will be able to produce some great clouds (check out our video review higher up the page to see an example).

    Final verdict 

    12 Monkeys Matata is a refined vape that combines delicious fruity flavours. You get a big and bold grape taste on the inhale and an apple flavour on the exhale.

    Currently we are offering a promotional discount to all first time buyers of 12 Monkeys Matata. Simply use the discount code YOUTUBE 10 when you buy online with us to get 10% off your order.

  • What Are O-Rings Used for in Vaping?

    If you have purchased any form of e-cigarette or vaping tank over the last couple of years, chances are you’ve seen those little rubber rings included in the package. Have you ever wondered what these mysterious O-rings are used for in vaping? Here’s the answer! 

    O-rings are used in vaping to prevent juice from leaking out between the various tank components, or the glass and metal parts. When you buy a tank, you will normally get some extras included so you can replace an O-ring if it becomes lost, damaged, or torn. 

    Can you buy replacement O-rings? 

    Over time you might see that the O-ring on your tank is starting to wear out and break. The first sign of a worn O-ring will be some leakage as the tank will no longer be held securely and will start slipping around. 

    They aren’t many vaping manufacturers who sell O-rings direct, but there is one rubber company we found where you can order replacements to your own specification. 

    To find out more, head on over to Polymax’s website where you can specify the size you need, and even the material type (which we will talk about next). 

    What are the best type of vaping O-rings? 

    Most vaping O-rings are made from nitrile or neoprene. That’s probably what the ones with your tank are made from. 

    Nitrile O-rings are economical and cheap to manufacture, being very strong and resistant to abrasion. Importantly, they can withstand temperatures of up to 120°C. 

    It’s unlikely you would need anything more than this, but if you did want to mod your tank to use the very best materials available, you might want to consider Viton O-rings. 

    Viton O-rings are extremely resistant to heat, withstanding temperatures of up to 250°C. They will also be more resistant to oils, hydraulic fluids, aromatics, and solvents. 

    To conclude, nitrile O-rings are used in most vaping products, and will be just fine for what you need them for. 

    However, if you want to mod your tank to only use the best materials, even if you don’t need the high resistance they offer, buy some bespoke Viton O-rings. 

    How to replace O-rings in a vaping tank 

    There is no right or wrong answer for where O-rings go on a vape tank, as it will change dependent on your own product. 

    However, some common places include: 

    1. When you unscrew your tank to replace the coil, look at the threads located at the bottom of the chimney. You should see a clear translucent O-ring, or possibly a white O-ring depending on your tank manufacturer.
    2. On other tanks, you might see some smaller white O-rings set between the glass.

    The O-rings will be different from tank to tank, so consult your user manual for instructions on what O-rings are used where, as some could be larger or smaller, or a combination of both. 

    Are O rings the same as vape bands? 

    Don’t confuse O rings with vape bands. They are two very different things. 

    A vape band is typically a rubber band with branding or a logo on. They first came about as promotional merchandise from the vaping companies, to be worn as finger bands by vapers. 

    However, fast forward to today, and now they are more commonly used by vapers over the outside of the tank to protect the glass from damage. 

    It’s an ingenious idea and it works really well! 

    Even the most well-designed tank glass can shatter if dropped on the ground. By using a vape band around the glass part, it will add an extra layer or protection to your tank. 

    Just like you might buy a rubberised case for your smartphone, a vape band can work in a similar way. 

    You could just replace your tank completely 

    If you cannot find any suitable replacement O-rings used for vaping, it might be time to upgrade and change your tank. 

    At Tidal Vape we have a wide range of atomizer tanks for your vaping device, and only stock the very best. 

    Just remember; when you buy a replacement tank please check first that it will be compatible with your vaping mod.

  • How to Take Care of Your Vapes Coil and Tank

    How to Take Care of Your Vapes Coil and Tank

    Ah, that feeling of opening your brand new vape for the first time - the sunlight glistening on the shiny, untouched mod with its clean coil and tank. But alas, after many uses you notice that there starts to be a burnt out, giving a bad taste each time you vape and that once-new tank starts to feel sticky and uncomfortable to use. The bottom line is, whether you are an amateur or vaping-pro, one of the crucial parts of your vaping experience is looking after your vape by knowing when to replace and clean the parts.

    Why is it important?

    You might be wondering why it is SO important to take care of your vape by keeping both the coil and tank clean. Firstly, your vape can harbour plenty of harmful bacteria which in the long-term will decrease the life-span and performance of your vape. After you have purchased the vape itself the only recurring costs you should experience is the cost of the vape juice and the coils themselves. By taking care of the vital components of your vape you could be saving yourself a lot of money!

    How do you know when to change your coil?

    One of the most important ways to prolong your vape life and performance? Knowing when to replace the coil. Generally speaking, coils last 2-3 weeks but can last much longer. To help you know when to replace your coil, we’ve put together a list of telltale signs that it's time to be out with the old and in with the new:

    1) There is a burnt taste in your mouth when you are vaping

    2) There is a burnt smell

    3) The juice doesn’t taste the same as it normally does or how you expect it should be

    4) The tank is getting too hot

    5) Difficulty in producing enough vapour

    6) The tank starts to leak

    If you are experiencing the above telltale signs, it is quite easy to unscrew the old coil and replace it with a new coil. Just baring in mind you allow enough time for the cotton within the coil to become saturated with the juice. This can be done by allowing the juice to sit in the tank for 5-10 mins. Bigger the coil more time is required!

    It is possible to speed the process up by adding few drops of your liquid directly to the cotton within the coil and then fixing the coil to your tank. Once fixed you can fill your tank with juice and put it together to vape. Without putting the tank on you can mimic the vaping action and this helps draw the liquid into the coil. It is advisable to draw quite heavily on the vape about 5-7 times which should be sufficient to saturate the coil.

    Coils are relatively cheap, and for a single coil, you can expect to pay around £2-6. Coils can also be bought in multipacks, which is handy due to their short life span because no one wants to be caught short without a replacement. Explore our wide range of individual and multipack coils here.

    How to take care of your tank

    So your coil has been replaced, but what about your vape’s tank? As we have established, for an optimal vaping experience it’s important to keep your vape’s coil and tank clean of any excess vape juice. Vapes can come in all different shapes and sizes, so when taking your vape’s tank apart pay close attention to how everything fits together and familiarise yourself with its components.

    One way you can clean your tank is using a standard rinse. To do this, you can rinse the tank using warm water and then dry it using a paper towel. If you feel your tank is much dirtier than usual you can leave it to soak in boiling water until the water itself cools down. If you choose to air-dry your tank we would again recommend leaving it to thoroughly dry overnight to ensure there is no water or condensation left inside. Some people may choose to dry their tank using a hair dryer, however, be careful as using too much heat can damage the O-rings.

    You may not know, but your kitchen cupboard is home to some simple household items which are great for giving your tank a deep clean. Baking soda or vinegar mixed with a drop of water will remove any tough residue and leave your tanks glistening once more. If you do choose to go down this route you must make sure you have undergone a thorough rinsing process otherwise the tank will be left with a lingering smell.

    For those vaping pros out there, you might decide to invest in an ultrasonic cleaner so your coil and tank can be the cleanest possible. Ultrasonic cleaners are used for cleaning jewellery and other precious metals, so as long as you can find one that cleans for over ten minutes you will be good to go. Ultrasonic cleaners are an effective and simple way of cleaning your coil and tank because all you need to do is simply fill it with water and run it until you can see that your tank has been effectively cleaned.

    In conclusion, the more you take care of and correctly clean your coil and vape, the longer you will prolong the life of your vape, ultimately saving yourself money and unnecessary trips to the vape shop!

    The Best PG/VG Mix for Vaping

    If you are in the early stages of switching from cigarettes to vaping or you are thinking about vaping as an option to help you quit. Understanding the liquid that goes into your tank can make the difference between sticking it out or returning back to cigarettes. If you are stuck wondering what VG & PG are we have a quick guide for you.

    PG & VG – So What Exactly Are They and What Does It Mean?

    Put simply, these are abbreviations for ‘propylene glycol’ and ‘vegetable glycerin’ – odourless liquid bases that are mixed with nicotine and flavour additives to create the e-juice for your vaporiser. PG and VG bases also have different consistencies and taste too, and they both give a different hit at the back of the throat. Hence why it’s important to know the correct mix ratio when trying a new flavour, or if you’re new to the vaping club. As this is not an exact science and more of a personal preference, it can take a few attempts to get to know your sweet point in terms of flavour and nicotine, but most people realise their preferences early on. Vegetable Glycerin (VG) is a viscous, sweet liquid and imparts a sweeter flavour to your vape. VG is also responsible for producing luscious clouds of vapour. Propylene Glycol (PG) on the other hand is a thinner, tasteless liquid. PG gives more of the ‘throat hit’ simulates the feeling of smoking better. However PG has a higher rate of sensitivity and some people can’t use it all in their vape, always check whether you are sensitive to PG before using. PG liquid is less viscous than VG giving a better throat hit. VG, on the other hand, has a slightly sweeter taste, even though some vapers consider PG to be a better flavour carrier base. Also, VG is a lot smoother than PG, and some manufacturers will use 100% VG in their e-liquid formulas, especially when they’re catering to sensitive vapers.

    40/60, 20/80, 50/50? Get The Ratio Right For Your Perfect Vape Mix

    E-liquids are a mixture of nicotine, flavouring and a PG and VG base. Depending on how much nicotine you put into your e-liquid, this will determine the strength of the vape. So let’s say your e-liquid is 10% nicotine, another 10% will be made up of flavouring with around 80% of the remaining mixture made up of water and a PG and VG mixed base. Starting off with a 50/50 ratio of PG to VG is a great way to ‘get a feel’ for vaping. You can make adjustments to your e-liquid whether you prefer more of a throat hit, or like to billow out those luscious plumes of white vapour. Most vapers prefer a 70% VG to 30% PG mix base, for a smoother vape without overpowering the throat.
