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.

Large

106mm*20mm.10.8mm,
Conventional pod vape size,
350mAh battery,
Type-C interface,
Anodizing process,
The side is also brushed in craftsmanship
Very delicate

Feelm pod system review

Small

96mm*21mm*11.5mm,
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.

Verdict

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.

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.

The product experience really impressed me.
Its auxiliary power adjustment,

There will be a different vaping experience.
This is also a characteristic adjustment function in the field of pod vapes.
You can also see some fine-tuning designs in the airhole.

VAPORESSO BARR reviewVAPORESSO BARR reviewVAPORESSO BARR review

As to taste,
After Captain’s use on different e-juices,
Captain summarized a few points:
BARR can easily handle nicotine salt e-liquids,
And has excellent vapor amount,
It produces good taste.
When using 6mg and 9mg conventional e-liquid.
The vaping effect is not very complete,
It feels like filtering out some flavors.

VAPORESSO BARR review

The 350mAh battery is insufficient in daily use,
It can’t support good battery life, this experience is very bad.
The pod has a small capacity,
The vaper has to add vape juice after smoking for a little while.
Overall speaking, this battery life is very bad.

VAPORESSO BARR review

Verdict

After the detailed experience,
We found this is a device that’s suitable for nicotine salt and those vapers with low nicotine addiction.
It has a good advantage in the field of pod vape in terms of lightness and soft functions.
The durable appearance also feels like business fashion.
It is also quite good in the vaping of nicotine salt.
But the overall endurance is relatively poor,
Not suitable for long time use.
There are no accessories such as lanyards and alike,
Which reduced the added value of the product.
Is such a device worth it?
On August 20th, it’s recommended to take a try at the Shenzhen exhibition yourselves.
Let’s experience BARR together,
Alright, I’m Catapin Dirty, see you next time
