Zap! Juice are one of our favourite e-liquid brands, with some incredibly popular and fantastic tasting ranges like the Aisu. It seems they have decided to jump on the disposable bandwagon and we don’t blame them, everybody is! The question then is can they bring their expert mixology and wonderful flavours to a disposable kit that can compete with the big brands like Elf Bar SKE and Elux? We decided to test out their all new Zap! Shades disposable kit. Key Features of the Zap! Shades Disposable Vape Powered by a 550mAh built-in battery, the Zap! Shades offers up to 600 puffs (approx). Each device is pre-filled with 2ml of nic salt e-liquid in a 20mg nicotine strength. With 6 flavours currently to choose from, there is a good variety and some unique flavours. 20mg Nicotine Salt (2%) E-Liquid E-liquid Capacity: 2ml Puffs: Up To 600+ Puffs (approx) Battery: 550mAh (Built-In) FEELM Ceramic Coil Draw Activation Ready To Use No Refills & Charging Portable & Lightweight Design TPD Compliant What’s in the box? Inside the box is the Zap! Shades disposable (thank god) and a small instruction manual. Zap! Shades Flavours Currently there are 6 flavours in the range, these are fairly unique and incredibly flavoursome. I love how everything with Zap! seems to have a back story or is a little more intricate than most other brands who rarely give real description to their flavours. Aloe Grape A slightly sweet with a fresh flavour that combines a top note of aloe and a sweet menthol finish to create a distinct flavour. A palate cleanser with flowery and frosty flavours throughout. Apple Crush Apple flavours are always intriguing and are a vaper’s must-have in their collection. Those crisp sweet highlights keep things wonderfully fresh, while the fruity tropical finish provides a welcoming contrast. The balance is fantastic, and this uplifting flavour is an excellent all-day vape. In fact, Apple Crush is more of a fruit explosion, and we believe you’ll enjoy every single puff. Crispy Lush Offering wild strawberries and luscious watermelon with extra inclusion of sweet bubble gum resulting in a flavour packed vape. Without a question, this is the juiciest of juices. Kyoho Grape Kyoho grapes are extremely popular throughout East Asia and are usually set at a high price point. The flavour is similar to Concord grapes, but it is known to be much more juicier and fresh, with a sweet sugary aftertaste. This disposable will seem familiar yet different, and we believe will become a favourite in the line! Pineapple Slush Pineapple Slush offers a wonderfully tropical taste of zesty iced pineapple paired with a rich, luscious slushy finish, providing an unbelievable vape that will transport you to another island. Wild Berries Mixing a foundation of diverse berries with delicate crisp notes, while an exhale reveals a cooling sparkling layer. Flavour Test There can be no denial and this is not an exaggeration, the Zap! Shades disposable has some of the best flavour available in any disposable right now. The Pineapple Slush for example tastes exactly like a pineapple drink. It is perfectly airy whilst being full of flavour at the same time. One thing that was really impressive with the Zap! Shades is the fact that the flavour does not diminish as the puffs go on, the flavour is perfectly consistent throughout. Build Quality, Design and Battery Life Build Quality As far as disposables go, the Zap! Shades is built with high quality. It has a solid feel to it with a mouthpiece that is firmly connected to the battery. It feels sturdy and sits nice and flush on a table. Of course, this device is still a disposable and isn’t built to withstand a drop from the Eiffel Tower, but it will certainly be good enough for its lifespan. Design At just 11.5cm tall and 1.5cm wide, the Zap! Shades fits nicely in the hand. It is a slick and skinny pen like device that has a clean wrapped finish. The Zap! branding and flavour sit on the side of the device in a camouflaged but shiny colour. The mouthpiece is probably the most impressive feature of the design. For those looking for a smaller mouthpiece to replicate a cigarette, the Zap! Shades is the perfect device. What I really love about the design is the mouthpiece contains the liquid with a semi-transparent top which allows you to clearly see how much liquid is left in the device. This is something disposables vapers have been longing for so kudos to Zap! on this one. Battery Life Powered by a 550mAh built-in battery, the battery life is pretty standard on the Zap! Juice. It definitely lasts for nearly the 600 puffs that they claim for and the battery life lasts the length of the device. Really, there isn’t too much to be said except it does exactly what it says on the tin. Pro’s and Con’s of the Zap! Shades Pro’s E-liquid window Exceptional flavour Good battery life Con’s None (that’s saying something!) Summary… Overall the Zap! Shades device is an exceptional disposable. It is no more expensive than any other disposable, yet it beats most on flavour and its design is very clever. An e-liquid window gives you comfort in the knowledge that the kit probably won’t die in any moment, most disposable vapers’ worst nightmare. It is a really impressive device and we would recommend this to any disposable vaper looking to try new flavours or anybody first quitting smoking. _____________________________________________________________________________________ Need help with anything vape related or have a question about our products?
