ALD Pearl review

ALD product description

Before talking about today’s product Pearl,
Captain first talk about ALD’s trump card,
ALD actually helped Ammo and RELX nano as an OEM manufacturer.
Strictly speaking, it is the supplier of each brand,
The device I talked about today can also be tagged with other brands.

ALD Pearl review

ALD Pearl analysis

Material of zinc alloy,
It gives the machine a strong sense of weight and a better painted appearance.
The 1.7mL cartridge capacity is relatively tricky,
It can’t support a sufficient battery life,
MICROFEEL technology means adding the traditional hollow cylinder ceramic core in the new ceramic materials.
On the basis of guaranteeing excellent e-liquid locking performance,
It greatly reduces the heat loss of the ceramic heating element,
And increases the speed of vaping and amount of vapor,
Further enhancing the ultimate level of delicate vaping feel.

ALD Pearl review

Simply put, it has more core competitiveness than similar products,
Taste better.
Classic general structure based on MICROFEEL™ heating element,
It can not only atomize nicotine salt vape juice with strong fluidity,
But also perfectly atomize high-viscosity liquid substances such as CBD oil.
Moreover, there is the possibility of atomizing other substances.
MICROFEEL™ makes atomization more diverse.
More diverse applications to match more personalized needs

ALD Pearl review

ALD Pearl user experience

Let me talk about battery first
The 520mAh battery is enough to support a day’s normal use,
With the blessing of type-C, it works well.
The alloy material of the shell adds extra weight to the compact body,
Adding more high-end feel to this portable product.

ALD Pearl review

Taste
The application of MICROFEEL technology produces a good taste,
It is exactly because of this ceramic core cotton design,
It reduced part of the throat hit to make the vaper more comfortable in throat.
Vaping taste is at the top level.
The overall feeling is right,
If it’s used on nicotine salt, the performance would be perfect.
It’s recommended to use higher nic salt e-liquid.
Especially the 50mg and 35mg nicotine strength vape juice.
It works very good.
It filters out relatively overwhelming throat hit,
Got a very comfortable and reasonable vaping feel.
The taste of nic salt is very good.

ALD Pearl review

Many friends are also worried about the life of the atomizing core,
The official data is 5 refills,
The actual experience of Captain is also 5 times, which is the same,
After 5 refills, it appears that various curves are falling.

ALD Pearl review

Verdict

ALD’s machine is not only doing well in terms of supply chain,
But also has its core competitiveness in independent research and development.
This Pearl product design is great,
But the overall development direction is still biased towards the manufacturer behind the scenes.
Overall speaking, ALD Pearl is satisfactory.
Personally I think if they integrate more resources (without too much reservation),
ALD will definitely do much better in this market.
Finally, if you have the intention of brand OEM, you can contact ALD directly,
Then carry out the next step of business cooperation.
Alright, I’m Captain Dirty, see you next time.

How will vape industry go in 2020?

Compared with 2019, the global e-cigarette market fell by more than 30% month-on-month in March. Although there was a growth of nearly 150% compared with February of the same year, the entire industry is still experiencing a death race.

As the global top manufacturer of vaporizer, ALD always adheres to its own beliefs, fights side by side with our partners, and continuously upgrades its product technology to meet the new demands of the consumer market.

With the raging COVID-19, hundreds of thousands of people killed by this “Black Swan”, health and safety are unprecedently valued than ever. This concept also expands to vape industry.

Is our vape device safe enough? Will our puffs bring bacteria into our bodies? Based on these problems, ALD Basic Research Institute successfully combined AG+ technology with the mouthpiece to achieve the effect of inhibiting the growth of bacteria.

Sterki
ALD’s Sterki:UV sterilization design, Effective sterilization rate reaches 97.73%, Nano texture optical coating, Open & closed system optional, Smart vibration reminding, Powerful magnetic connection

ALD’s AG+ antibacterial technology has been proved effectively reduced the breeding of bacteria,  the antibacterial rate of the AG+ mouthpiece against three types of conventional bacteria (Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and even Candida albicans) within 24 hours was over 99%, which ensures a safer, more sanitary vaping experience.

The AG+ antibacterial mouthpiece made of a unique material with Nanometer Silver Ion. The nanometer silver ion is widely used as an efficacious chemotherapeutic antibacterial and antifungal agent in consumer electronics;

In Sept. 2019,ALD also released a disinfection vaporizer with a build-in UV lamp, which kills the bacteria in the entrance of atomizer effectively.

As fast-consumer electronic products, electronic cigarettes are inseparable from our daily lives. ALD believes that electronic cigarette industry will put health and safety on a higher priority in the near future. And ALD will also invest more resources to bring more trustworthy products to consumers.

Remember, stay safe.

What is Canopy ’s Strategic Focus and Moves in 2020?

Canopy Growth (“Canopy”) (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC), like other cannabis companies, suffered a setback in the first quarter of 2020 due to COVID-19. However, its stock price soars over 80% since the middle of March, which relates to its recent moves.

In April, Canopy announced to shut down its operations in South Africa and Lesotho, shutter facilities in Columbia, Saskatchewan in Canada and New York in America. Meantime, it signed a regional supply deal with Clever Leaves who will supply Canopy with extracted goods produced in Colombia.

It is obvious that Canopy is removing its investment from cannabis cultivation. Then where does it put its focus on instead? The answer is cannabis derivatives and cannabis-related products such as vaping devices.

On April 20, it rolled out the first line of CBD topicals under its brand First & Free in US. On March 16, Tweed, another one of Canopy’s brands, began to ship its first cannabis-infused beverage product throughout Canada. In late January, it launched its line-up of vape devices, supplied by ALD Group Limited, a top one-stop vape solution provider who also serves the U.S. top 1st THC pod vape brand-STIIIZY, as well as dozens of nicotine vaping brands and tobacco giants, such as British American Tobacco, R.J. Reynolds Tobacco and ITC Limited. Clearly, the cooperation with ALD is correct and successful. So far, the total sale of Canopy’s vape batteries has taken up to 70% market share in Canada.

The strategy of Canopy’s moves is based on what David Klein, the CEO of Canopy, said, “to define a very visible path to profitability and positive cash flow”. Thus, it shrinks investments on cultivation which need relatively longer time to make profit, and shifts to an “asset light” model, focusing on cannabis products and its derivatives, as well as vaping devices, which is more profitable, and is good for cash flow.

Correct strategy helps Canopy gain a significant growth. Will Canopy achieve the final aim of 2020? Let’s keep in focus its following moves.

TPM – The New Criteria to Choose A Good E-cig

What are the criteria for a good e-cig? People used to rely on some subjective opinions such as KOLs’ reviews to choose their vaporizers, are there more objective criteria to do that? This article introduces TPM and explains how it helps us to assess a good vape device.

 

  1. What is TPM?

TPM is short for Total Particulate Matter. It represents the sum of all solid and liquid particles suspended in a vape cloud. Similar to the importance of PM2.5 in measuring air quality, TPM is an irreplaceable index in smoke quality testing.

As we all know, it is hard to quantify smoke level/dose with naked-eye observation. However, TPM measurement makes smoke quality become visualizable and measurable, and it can be further utilized in analyzing the chemical and physical properties of the smoke.

Also, TPM testing results provide a basis for research in environmental engineering and pathology. This is also the reason why TPM is seen as ‘a golden key for vaping technology’.

 

  1. The application of TPM

‘A golden key can open any door.’ TPM is generally applied by many organizations in different industries. For instance, a study from WHO (World Health Organization) (2018) mentioned that

 

‘A review of WHO SOP-03 for TSNAs(Tobacco-specific nitrosamines) in mainstream tobacco smoke suggests that the chemistry of ENDS aerosol is compatible with the WHO SOP and that either aerosol TPM collected on CFPs(Cambridge filter pads) or e-liquid could be analysed.

 

As noted above, however, the reported levels of TSNAs in ENDS aerosol are below the reporting limit of the WHO SOP for TSNAs in tobacco smoke.

 

TPM is an international standard in the tobacco industry, and it is also applied to tests for e-cig commonly. To ensure the universality of the ‘golden key’, several specifications were set for different aspects, including smoking simulation, sampling methods, and experimental environments.

 

A TPM report of SLIMO™ vape devices (a new generation product from ALD Group Limited) is quoted in the article to explain TPM more clearly.

 

  1. TPM and Puff Volume

Producing massive and stable vapor is the basic requirement for an excellent vape device. TPM (mg/puff) can reflect the puff volume of a vaping device.

Below Figure 1 shows the differences in puff volume between SILMO™ devices and other vaporizers.

TPM - The New Criteria to Choose A Good E-cig

Notes:

  • TPM(mg) on a vertical axis stands for puff volume
  • Puffs on the horizontal axis stand for the number of puffs
  • As shown in the chart, the TPM value ofSLIMO™ devices stays steady between 6-7mg, while that of the contrasted devices is lower-lying between 3.5-5mg.
  • That is to say, in a single puff, the puff volume of SILMOTM device is 1.5-2 times that of other ordinary devices.
  • What’s more, the higher the number of puffs, the bigger disparity of puff volume.

 

  1. TPM and Device Lifespan

Smoke simulation tests are conducted on the devices in the report. The test results bring out something new, such as the relationship between lifespan and heating coil.

Usually, the unstable vape performance of electronic cigarettes is caused mainly by the short lifespan of its heating coil. It is also the main reason for burnt taste, spit-back, and even not working. If vape devices that are applied the same heating coil have well performance in experiment, taste consistency and stability of this batch of products can be ensured.

Figure 2 illustrates TPM testing results under 500 puffs simulation.

TPM - The New Criteria to Choose A Good E-cig
Source: ALD Group Limited Labs

Notes:

  • TPM(mg) on the vertical axis stands for puff volume
  • Puffs on the horizontal axis stand for the number of puffs

After 500 puffs under the same conditions, the SILMO™ device performs steadily in the terms of puff volume.

However, the contrasting device performs well in the beginning while creates less and less puff volume even stops working finally.

 

  1. TPM and Safety

It is the most important thing to make sure electronic cigarettes not release harmful substances over the standard when using.

With TPM, it is feasible to conduct some tests and analyses on the safety of e-cigarettes, for example, carbonyl compounds testing, the test items of which include formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and acrolein.

The limits required by European Union Tobacco Products Directive (TPD) for formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, and acrolein in a single e-cig are as follows:

Let’s look at how SILMO™ device performs

TPM - The New Criteria to Choose A Good E-cig TPM - The New Criteria to Choose A Good E-cig TPM - The New Criteria to Choose A Good E-cig

Note:

  • μg/200puffs on vertical axis stands for the μg of aldehyde per 200 puffs
  • Horizontal axis shows different devices, the bigger scatter, the denser data.

 

We can find in the above charts:

  • The test results for formaldehyde and acetaldehyde of all tested devices are compliant with the requirements of TPD.
  • The μg of acrolein released bySILMO™ devices is far lower than the limit of TPD, while some results of contrasted devices fail to meet TPD requirements.

 

  1. Conclusion

TPM shows us three important criteria of vaping technology:1. Puff Volume, 2. Safety, 3. stability

With TPM, vape manufacturers know how to produce vape products, and consumers know how to check the performance and safety of a vape device.

According to the above TPM tests, we know vape devices utilized different heating elements perform differently. Devices powered by SILMO™, a heating element technology developed by ALD Group Limited, perform excellently in the tests.

TPM test has to be conducted under strict experimental conditions. Besides, its testing devices are costly, so only top laboratories and research institutions can afford it. For e-cig users, it is not realistic to review a vape via TPM. However, we believe that as the industry becomes more and more standardized and transparent, the TPM test will be applied to a wider range, including choosing an e-cig.

ALD Sterilizer Pod Vape Leading the Trend of Design Direction

It is reported that the industry’s first e-cigarette with UV sterilization function- Sterki has been developed by ALD and introduced at the exhibition in Dortmund, Germany.

ALD Group Limited, founded in 2009 and headquartered in Shenzhen, is a high-tech enterprise specializing and leading in electronic atomization technology research and applications. ALD’s business covers ENDS (Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems), IMV (Inhaled Medical Vaporizer) and HNB (Heat-Not-Burn device). Benefiting from the scientific research and development system, deep technical accumulation, strong manufacturing capability, as well as customer-and-user-centered business philosophy, ALD has not only established a solid strategic partnership with a lot of internationally well-known brands as well as multinational tobacco giants, but also won widespread respect among vaporizer consumers.

“Sterki not only meets the demand of e-cigarette users for more healthy e-cigarette products, but also breaks the serious problem of homogenization of product research and development in the industry at present, and successfully shapes a product with personality differentiation and humanization. It is a significant reference for the global development of e-cigarettes.” evaluated by a senior testing expert in the industry.

With sterilization efficiency up to 99%, Sterki offers science and technology health care for users.

Dust and bacteria on cartridges have always been a headache for the majority of e-cigarette users. Although there are solutions of many brands on the market, the most popular way is to avoid the problem of cartridges by wearing “dustproof caps”. Although “dustproof cap” can avoid large particle pollution, it does not have sterilization function. And it is still easy to be lost and cause secondary pollution.

Starting from the second half of 2018, the e-cigarette industry ushered in a period of rapid development and broke out a situation of “thousand e-cigarettes war”. However, from the perspective of the industry, the speed of product innovation is far behind the needs of users, and the homogenization of product form and function is very obvious. E-cigarette’ s shape development focuses mostly on product appearance, while function development focuses on taste and e-liquid flavors. The essence behind “thousand e-cigarettes war” is stereotype.

Based on the actual needs of users, in addition to the sterilization function, Sterki is designed with battery increase, fine body material, and perfect vapor volume. No matter from the appearance or function, Sterki is a product based on the real needs of users. It leads the industry’s trend by solving pain points one by one.

ALD’s CPU Upgraded to Triple Core Processor

The industry’s first successful introduction of the world’s top 500 R&D system -IPD escorts the R&D innovation of enterprise.

 

The successful introduction of IPD R&D system further solidifies ALD’s market-oriented and customer-centered research and development innovation model, which also significantly improves the quality and efficiency of product research and development by more than 30%, and the ability to serve customers.

 

 

 

II.

IPD- an innovative research and development system that may be still unfamiliar.

Ascetic System innovation

Learning from the Global 500

IPD(Integrated Product Development)is a set of advanced integrated product development management ideas, methods and models introduced by Huawei in 1999 enlightened by the international giant IBM. In 1992, IBM initiated the IPD system and achieved great success after internal promotion.

In other words, IPD system has accomplished two world giants-IBM and Huawei in the past 30 years.

In fact, the ideas and methods of IPD system have been widely used in Fortune Global 500 companies.

 

The fact of successful application of IPD in the Global 500 shows that “the advancement of an enterprise is not a single point, but a system. Enterprise innovation starts from system innovation”.

 

IPD System Architecture:

Ideas:

  1. Take customer orientation, market demand as the source of product innovation.
  2. Focus on customer and market input product planning and focus excellent resources on core customers and products.
  3. Emphasize on the accumulation of technology platform and technology innovation. Continuous platform construction and technology innovation is the basic guarantee to serve customers well.
  4. Emphasize on the integration of internal cross-departmental team resources, parallel and efficient collaboration service for terminal customers.
  5. Focus on integrating good practices and tools into the product development process to improve efficiency.

 

What knotty problems can be solved in the e-cigarette industry by Global 500’s system?

 

In the e-cigarette industry, traditional R&D has problems such as individual combat, high trial-and-error cost, long cycle, dissociation of R&D and market and so on.

As a R&D innovation tool, IPD possesses the characteristics of fine management and collaboration of each module, such as R&D aiming at market pain points, decision-making layer, R&D layer, marketing layer, etc., which effectively avoids the blindly research and trial.

At the same time, the R&D process will give priority to consumer pain point analysis over development analysis. The prominent advantage in the “forward-looking product” and “market pain point product” development can help corporate customers research and develop more marketable products so as to reduce cooperative customers trial-and-error cost and unnecessary promotion loss.

Combine innovation, quality and service to create value for customers. in a period of rapid development, most of companies in e-cigarette industry are busy expanding their business to make hot money and fast money at present. However, ALD believes that in order to achieve sustainable development in the industry, the accumulation of R&D and innovation ability is the key, and so is the continuous creation of products that meet the needs of current and future users. As the first company in the e-cigarette industry to introduce IPD system, ALD show a business attitude of creating continual value for customers through innovation, quality and service.
