Vaporesso Swag II Kit This is a sad, weird and very unprecedented time for all of us right now, I don't think there is a single person amongst us that isn't fully aware of that fact. For some, it means working from home....or at least trying to, constant distractions of a fridge full of junk food or a house full of little children struggling to keep themselves entertained whilst you work... Can be testing to say the least. Even those that happen to live alone, or...'The Wise' as I like to call them, have been seemingly summoned to the dark side by certain online outfits that have single handedly (if you'll pardon the pun) destroyed the global stock levels of toilet paper by tempting them with free all-you-can-eat premier level pornography, distracting even the most 'Christian' of office folk from doing what they're supposed to be doing, in favour of some low down dirty 'exercise' time.... That'll be 'Tom Wanks' then....no?....Too cheap?....Meh...(mass)debatable.....(ahem) Then there's the key workers, once looked down upon by the high and mighty as low level workers with pay packets to match, yet now propping up the economy by putting themselves on the front line every day, risking their own lives to ensure that we are all fed, have ample care should we get sick, can still take delivery of essential items like designer clothes or 8000 piece baked bean jigsaw puzzles, or even have enough toilet paper to cater for the aftermath of the binge eating of junk food, newly formed alcohol dependency, and of course...Tom’s hourly work-outs. These are the true heroes of society. I should know, I live with one, and not only does she work extra hours in less than safe conditions to serve the less than intelligent general public on a daily basis with their increasingly mind boggling stupidity and arrogance (don't even get me started)...but she has to come home to me, and I belong in the third category. Some of us can't work from home, some of us have just simply been furloughed...a word that the vast majority of us didn't even know existed until our bosses informed us that that's what we have become...they could of come up with a better sounding word I'm sure, one that sounds a little less like a feasible excuse for doing something stupid.."I don't know officer, I can't remember, I was well and truly furloughed". You see...I work in the events industry. We basically make our money by entertaining mass gatherings of people...as you can imagine...that industry isn't fairing all too well at the moment, so not only can I not work from home, but I also have small kids that are not in school, and a partner who is a key worker, one who loves spending time with her kids more than anything else in the world, and has to go to work more often than usual whilst leaving her beloveds in the hands of a 49 year old baby, a 49 year old baby who...on his partner’s days off...has to come up with ways of entertaining himself... The tree...doesn't fall too far from the apple....as the case may be. She knows that she has 3 children, and not 2, and she's also well aware that in fact, the stress of having 2 young kids who demand entertainment every waking hour actually pales in comparison to living with someone who almost certainly has had undiagnosed ADHD since birth and cannot be left alone for long periods of time through fear of losing the structural integrity of her home, her sanity, or...some days...her partner’s life, as he attempts to build himself a time machine from a broken generator, a BBQ, several litres of rubbing alcohol, a motorbike and an alarm clock....(look..I know I'm onto something, it just needs a little fine tuning). In short...I am a fucking nightmare. I was a fucking nightmare before this started, but now?....Well...bored me is just simply not fun for anyone in my immediate vicinity.. And today has been one of those days. "CAN'T .....YOU JUST .....FUCKING....WRITE...SOMETHING"......my partner lovingly suggested whilst attempting to put out the fire in the living room for the third time that day. She's right obviously - I am, after all, an award winning (ahem) globally recognised writer by at least 6 people now, which has doubled since last year. The problem has been that I'm just not getting the kind of gear that grasps what little attention I have to offer. The industry has changed so much over the last year that I've been stuck in a rut, sure..there's been the odd thing, but generally? .......'meh' However... Like a lot of reviewers out there in Vapingdom, I am in possession of a box...it's quite a big box, and within this box are a number of devices that either I didn't ask for, didn't want, or wouldn't review for various reasons...mainly because they were shit, so....as I'd been threatened with the promise of immediate and very painful death if I didn't get the fuck out of the house....I went through said box 'just to see'.....and wouldn't you know it...I discovered a 'thing'....not my normal kind of thing but....a thing none the less.....shall we... .................................................................................................................................................................................................................................. Welcome back my mighty, misty miscreants, back again with more of the same..only...smaller this time, and although a way away from my usual personal style of vaping, it's still something that peaked my interest enough to be worthy of me wanting to tell you about it... It's a good question that many ask, but few can answer.....yet...here we are, so....allow me to bore you even further with the details as I present to you something from quite frankly, one of my favourite vape device manufacturers out there, especially when it comes to mass produced stuff, and they are of course Vaporesso , and this time with something that might look a little familiar....the Vaporesso Swag II Kit You could well be forgiven for thinking so, yes.....and for more than one reason, it's almost as if the Vaporesso Gen had a fling with an older lady....the legendary and iconic Istick Pico...that dirty old trollop certainly gets around a bit...and this...is the resulting love child. The Lowdown The Vaporesso Swag II kit comprises of the NRG PE sub-ohm tank, and Swag II mod. The tank I'll come to in a little while, as undoubtedly the star of this show is the mod itself. The Swag II mod follows the same concept as the popular and original Vaporesso Swag mod. It's a single 18650 powered device giving a respectable 80 watts, and is all kept in check by Vaporesso's impressive and outlandishly comprehensive Axon chip, more on that shortly. The first thing that will spring into mind as soon you open the Swag II box is just how compact this thing is, and also....the fact that it's finished in exactly the same coating as the Vaporesso Gen, a coating that received a LOT of attention when it was released, landing it in most reviewers 'Pro's' lists.. And for those that never owned one, or even picked one up, the coating is rubberized and offers quite simply one of the best hand feels on any device I've ever reviewed. It's also pretty damned durable....as my overly clumsy ass can attest to, couple the grippy coating with the ultra compact size and you're onto a winner.
