Vaporesso Luxe PM40 review

Vaporesso Luxe PM40 user experience

First of all, in terms of the appearance of this product, it is very dazzling.
It retains a family color scheme, the color scheme of carbon fiber, lava and jade.
The newly added prism color is very beautiful.
The seven-color reflection that you can see at a glance is really different and outstanding in any occasion.

Some parameters are very reasonable,
Including size control,
Very small, but not as mini.
Very atmospheric, but not cumbersome.
I think this is my best overview of the size of this device.

1800mAh is quite strong and sufficient on power,
Plus a blessing of tpye-C,
Never worry about battery life anymore.

Operationally, it can support a power adjustment of 5-40W,
But it is a one-way program plus one-way button,
Simply put, it is one-click operation.
But when you need 21W power to experience,
One more press during the process and it will become 22W.
And you need to go back to 21W again clockwise.
Compared to the adjustment of the common box mod or the multi-key device,
It’s more complicated.

Vaporesso Luxe PM40 review

It’s equipped with Vaporesso GTX series atomizing core,
Captain has introduced the atomizer core of the GTX series to you in detail before.
I won’t explain too much here.

The air hole can be adjusted. Actually, there is not much auxiliary effect.
In other words, the auxiliary function for air intake is not strong (somewhat useful in the extreme state)
First, the uniqueness of the mouthpiece hinders the overall direction of the airflow,
The second is that the overall sealing of the machine has not been very good.

Vaporesso Luxe PM40 review

There is still not a big change in taste,
Or a change from the previous GTX series
As to the vapor amount, the design of the mouthpiece supports big cloud or direct-to-lung lovers.
Basically, the care for mouth-to-lung vapers is not given.

Vaporesso Luxe PM40 review


What Vaporesso produces is always reassuring,
The machine itself does not have a big problem, and it has gradually become a benchmark in the industry in terms of every detail.
This color-matching is undoubtedly a big selling point.

The taste continues to be excellent among the GTX series.
Since it is the way to open the cap and fill the drip nozzle, you should consider adopting to more diameter drip nozzles,
So as to realize the best user experience.
Okay, I’m Captain Dirty, what do you think of such a product?

Vaporesso Luxe II Mod review

Luxe II Mod user experience

In terms of hand feel, 89.9×47.8×29.5mm is relatively large compared to the general 80W power box.
But fortunately, the buttons and touch feel are very good, and with the support of the chip, the overall feeling is great.
The multi-panel color scheme gives beginner more personal choices. I like this pannel.
The surface saturation of the panel is very good, and there are up to 9 colors in total. It’s a bold move!

Vaporesso Luxe II Mod review

In terms of use, I actually don’t like the screen at the beginning. Maybe I just don’t feel very comfortable with the touch screen.
But after using it for a while, I started to like this design, which is great.
5-220W is very suitable for beginners to try various configurations, of course, the original is also equipped with an atomizer,
The e-liquid tank is very considerable, with the dual battery configuration, you don’t have to worry about the troubles of endurance.

Vaporesso Luxe II Mod review

If you are a new vaper, you can really try this box. If you want to advance to become a better vaper, this could be a perfect machine that matches you exactly.

Vaporesso Luxe II Mod review

The configuration of the atomizer and the atomizing core is still the strongest NRG+GT combination of VAPORESSO. It uses a mesh core configuration that can make your smoke reach the top level. Of course, it is not recommended to smoke dessert flavors here. Because this configuration will make you lose your teeth for over sweetness. If you want to try dessert flavors, Captain recommends changing to another atomizer, like a single-coil atomizing core.

Vaporesso Luxe II Mod review

Vaporesso Luxe II Mod is a machine with outstanding performance, covering all the needs of beginners and advanced vapers with essential functions for vaping.

Alright, does such a good mod box device deserve your favor?

I’m Captain Dirty, see you next time!

Feelm pod system review – DirtyCheck No.91

The core competing field of the pod vape market is taste and cartridges,
And the one who has the absolute right to speak in the field of pod vape cartridges is definitely Feelm.
Whether it’s workmanship or technology,
Feelm’s reputation in the industry is positive.
Today we will talk about Feelm’s new pod system.

Before reading this article, take note that this version of the product we review is not for sale but test only. It’s a new heating technology demo prototype not on market.

Feelm brand introduction

FEELM Tech is a revolutionary atomization technology brand belonging to SMOORE, which was just listed on Hong Kong stock market this July (stock code: 6969.HK) . According to Frost & Sullivan, SMOORE was the world’s largest vaping device manufacturer in terms of revenue, accounting for 16.5% of the total market share, in 2019. For more about Feelm, tap here.

Feelm pod system introduction

First of all, from the packaging, you can see the strength of Feelm,
The patterns above have shadows of various brands,
What they’re expressing is naturally clear to everyone.

Feelm pod system review

This kind of packaging is hard to open, because the size span is too big.
So you have to spend a little time on it.

Feelm pod system review

Open the cover then you see the core technology of this pod system.
Enhanced rich taste,
Improved output efficiency of nicotine salt,
Balanced leakproof technology.

Feelm pod system review

After opening the inner cover, it amazed me,
It turned out to be two pod vapes.
One large and one small,
Especially the white small one,
It’s very good looking at a glance.
Three cartridges beside,
They are tobacco, raspberry and mango flavors

Feelm pod system review

Feelm pod system parameters/specifications

Let’s talk about the basic data of two pod systems.


Conventional pod vape size,
350mAh battery,
Type-C interface,
Anodizing process,
The side is also brushed in craftsmanship
Very delicate

Feelm pod system review


It is definitely smaller than the conventional one.
265mAh battery is slightly weak while its size is small,
Captain thinks that it can be improved.
MicroUSB charging obviously has no advantage on such devices,
It can’t realize fast charge.
The difference from the large one is that this machine uses
Plastic material, so the hand feel is not good.
But the weight is indeed reduced a lot,
Very light and portable.

Feelm pod system review

Both devices use Feelm’s own cartridges.
The capacity is 2mL,
The number of puffs is probably more than 300.
With a humane digital experience.

Feelm pod system review

Feelm pod system user experience

The minimalist workmanship makes me feel very good.
Whether it’s large or small,
They all give me a pleasant feel.

Of course, there are deficiencies,
The connection slot position of the cartridge and device is not well made,
The cartridge cannot be completely attached to the device.
A little swaying, which could be completely avoided.

Feelm pod system review

The small one doesn’t have the vibration notification of cartridge plugging.
In terms of functionality, it’s a bit less than the large.
But does not affect the actual user experience,
All its functions are essential.

Taste experience

Captain tried 3 cartridges in the package,
The overall taste is smooth and pleasant.
There is no noise or any trouble when using,
This feeling is very good, it’s a great joy.

Feelm pod system review

The puffs of each cartridge is about 320,
This is also based on everyone’s vaping habits.
This data from me is for reference only.

The condensation of the cartridge will basically remain at the upper part of the bottom,
During the experience, there is no e-liquid running into the mouth.
No burnt core or burnt smell.

Feelm pod system review

In terms of taste, it’s not enough,
Scientific formula in the flavor is not there.
Or it just didn’t create the point for the experiencer.
The taste needs further improvement.
It’s also because Feelm is a brand dedicated to its award-winning heating technology,
Flavors are not its major course.
No advantage in other flavors but tobacco only.
Tobacco flavor is great and suitable for daily vaping.


Feelm pod system undoubtedly comes with many competitive advantages.
Whether it is ceramic heating core technology, vapour amount, craftsmanship, appearance or e-liquid locking, etc,
It’s considered top in the industry.
What needs improvement is the formula of its cartridge e-liquid,
Great taste is the key.
When a new improved perfect product appears,
It’ll be undoubtedly a huge pressure on peers
Alright, I’m Captain Dirty, see you next time.

Feelm pod system is not for sale but a vape heating solution demo prototype. So contact Smoore official for more info:

FEELM Ceramic Coil

2. FEELM Tech Benefits

FEELM is passionate about improving the vaping experience for adult smokers with innovative vaping technology and devices. Combining a Metallic Film with a Ceramic Conductor, this revolutionary technology is a breakthrough in traditional Materials and Structural Science, representing a new frontier in the vaping atomization industry.

FEELM Ceramic Coil

Compared to other materials such as glass fiber and cotton, the FEELM ceramic coil is special in its physical structure, material property and industrial design. These combinations contribute to much faster rise in temperature and more even temperature distribution on the substrate surface. The precise temperature control enabled by the FEELM atomizer can greatly reduce the amount of aldehydes and ketones produced during the vaporization process to meet the most stringent requirements set by the regulation regimes in the industry.

Another advantage of the FEELM atomizer is the even heating provided by the proprietary “s-shape” metallic film design. It can effectively eliminate most of the partial carbonation. With proper conducting the e-liquid through engineered microstructures, the ceramic coils are able to solve the dry-burn taste problem which has troubled the industry for a long time.

FEELM Ceramic Coil

Compared with ordinary coils, millions of micro size pores in FEELM ceramic coil generates smoother and purer vapor, delivering great taste and exceptional vaping experience. Each drop of E-liquid is vaporized to aerosol particles smaller than 1μm, significantly improving the efficiency of nicotine delivery by 87.58%.

3. FEELM inside Program

FEELM Technology offers a series of excellent complete pod solutions for global business partners, from the core ceramic heating technology to the matched E-liquid solution, high battery efficiency, and stylish industrial design.

So as to provide end-users a reference while making choices and to ensure them to enjoy the true great taste, “FEELM inside” was officially launched as the brand technology authentication symbol on April 15, 2019. It’s the only symbol to verify that FEELM technology is loaded and it has been registered worldwide as a trademark.

FEELM Ceramic Coil

FEELM technology has been applied in a dozen of closed pod brands. And “FEELM inside” symbol has been labeled on pod cartridges of almost all the brands, including RELX, YOOZ, MOTI, Njoy Ace, HEXA, Alfapod, Haka, VAPO, Innocigs and so on. In the near future, it will be labeled on all pods driving by FEELM technology and “FEELM inside” symbol should be the first thing customers looking for while choosing a pod.

FEELM Ceramic Coil

4. FEELM Future

Driven by innovation, FEELM never stop exploring and making progress, offering better vaping experience for global adult vapers. Owning the 1st fully automated pod production in the industry, FEELM’s annual productive capacity is over 1 billion, helping more adult smokers make the switch.

Moreover, electronic atomizer is not the only application of FEELM Ceramic Coil. With more fundamental research and development of next-generation advanced Atomization Technology, more product applications of Ceramic Atomizer maybe
expected and soon become part of our daily life!

Smoore Granted an Award of $5.4M in a Trademark Infringement Suit

A New York federal judge recently granted Shenzhen Smoore Technology a $5.4 million default judgment and permanent injunction against more than 100 defendants accused of selling Vaporesso and Smoore’s self-branded counterfeit goods.

The default judgment is for $50,000 dollars per defendant and transfers to Smoore the frozen assets of the defaulting defendants. Smoore filed the complaint in October alleging trademark counterfeiting and infringement against defendants located in China but conducting business in the U.S. and other countries by means of their merchant storefronts on some online marketplace platforms. In the same lawsuits, Smoore settled with a significant number of defendant sellers who paid compensation for infringement and cooperated to identify their sources of supply of counterfeit products.

According to Smoore the ruling demonstrates the company’s determination to protect its intellectual property rights in the United States. “It is meaningful for protecting the development of the whole industry toward a healthy direction and providing safe and reliable vaping products for individual customers,” Smoore wrote in a statement.

Smoore has undertaken the lawsuits as part of an overall anti-counterfeiting program in the United States and elsewhere that includes cooperation with customs to seize counterfeit products and local police to arrest owners of and shut down counterfeit operations.

In the United States, Smoore is represented by the law firm Epstein Drangel, which has considerable experience in implementing and overseeing such anti-counterfeiting programs. Smoore says it plans to enforce the default judgment to collect compensation.
