There’s too many to list here, so in this post we’ve picked out some of the most interesting new hardware and e-liquids from top vape brands.

New Vape Hardware
Innokin Coolfire Z50 Kit: Effective MTL
The Coolfire Z50, which combines the new Z50 mod with the existing Zlide tank, has rapidly become my go-to Mouth-to-Lung device.
There’s nothing fancy or tricky about this device, but it delivers an excellent Mouth-to-Lung vape, the coils last for ages and the 2100 mAh battery (when combined with the lower wattages used for MTL vaping) provides plenty of use before needing a recharge.
Aspire Slym Kit; Switch between pre-filled and refillable pods
Most pod kits come with either pre-filled or refillable pods. Not so the Aspire Slym, which gives you the option of switching between both types of pods. The pre-filled pods also come with some seriously good flavours – including one of my favourites, Wick Liquor – Boulevard. As the name suggests, this is a Slym and compact device, and at under 11 cm long will fit in most vapers pockets.
This makes it an excellent choice for a new vaper, who can experiment with both pre-filled and refillable pods and work out which one is best for them.
Vaporesso Gen S: Serious DL Inhale
At the other end of the scale from the Coolfire Z50 is a kit designed for clouds and Direct-Lung vaping. The Vaporesso Gen S can deliver a massive 220 watts of power, making it suitable for serious cloud chasers.
As you’d expect with an advanced tank, the mod comes with multiple functions, including DIY mode for complete control over settings or smart temperature control for consistent flavour and longer lasting coils.
Voopoo Drag 2 Refresh Edition: Flexible PnP Pod Tank
The striking Voopoo Drag 2 Refresh is powered by two 18650 batteries for an impressive battery life, and comes with intelligent coil detection, which takes the fuss out of selecting the correct wattage and helps ensure your coils last longer.
But what really sets it apart is the included PnP pod tank, which is compatible with both the Voopoo Drag Mod and with the Voopoo Drag S and Drag X pod devices. It’s also well worth checking out the Voopoo Drag X, a powerful pod system which comes with a stylish leather finish, and Drag S devices too.
Aspire Cloudflask: Retro Hip Flask Design
The Aspire Cloudflask has been flying off the shelves, and a lot of that is down to a design which resembles a hip flask – complete with a handy leather strap.
Instead of variable wattage, this device uses bypass power, which delivers the full power of the battery to the coil. The power can reach 50 watts of output, which, combined with a 0.25 Ω coil, delivers a restricted Direct-Lung vape.
Update: The Cloudflask has now been replaced with the upgraded Cloudflask S.
Geekvape Aegis Boost: Virtually Indestructible
Geekvape, along with Voopoo, are two brands we are definitely keeping an eye on at present, as they are releasing a string of interesting new devices.
One thing I particularly like about Geekvape is the sheer toughness of their devices. The Geekvape Aegis Boost device is no different – waterproof, dustproof and shockproof, it’s ideal for people who spend time outdoors, as well as for those with tough physical jobs. Also worth mentioning is the padded, stain-resistant leather sleeve which adds both style and comfort.
New E-Liquid Flavours
Ohm Brew Baltic Extreme Shortfills
With the UK hitting the middle of summer, many brands are bringing in cool and refreshing additions to their e-liquid ranges. Ohm Brew Baltic Extreme takes a different angle on coolness, as it uses koolada in some e-liquids to add a cooling taste without the minty menthol tones that characterise so many e-liquids.
Dinner Lady Iced Tea
Dinner Lady have also kept on trend with the summer vapes releasing a new range of Iced Tea flavours. Flavours such as Peach Mint Iced Tea combine the delicate floral notes of tea with the addition of fruit for a punchier flavour.
You’ll also find plenty of additions to the other Dinner Lady ranges, from a classic Smooth Tobacco flavour to the exotic Lychee Ice.
New Vampire Vape Flavours
Vampire Vape have added flavours to both their shortfill ranges. Highland Soda 50ml is based on a popular Scottish drink and has a distinct orange fizzy tang while Strawbizzle combines the sweetness of strawberries with tongue tingling sherbert. You’ll also find some perennial Vampire Vape favourites, such as Vamp Toes and Charger, now included in their 10ml Salts range.
You’ll find plenty more e-liquids from the likes of IVG, Twelve Monkeys, Vapouriz and more, so do check out what’s new and see what takes your fancy!
