Relx Pod System Review by The Pakistani Vaper
It seems closed systems will never go out of style, at least not until someone comes out with a sleek pod system that has refillable pods like the caliburn. Why do I say like the caliburn and not the caliburn itself? Simple. the caliburn is not a great looking device while it does perform great. Pod systems like the myle, juul, naked and relx have a particular target market i.e. those who want a small device to use to quit smoking and without any hassle. The Relx pod system is the latest to head my way but does it perform? And how does it compare to the other pod systems I have tried before? Lets get to it in the review below.
The Relx device and mint flavor pod are courtesy of VapeOnHai who is selling these in Karachi online and at their outlet located in DHA on Saba next to Juicy Lucy.
The flavors for the Relx device were sent to me by Relx.pk.
How is the device? Well for starters it is way better designed than the juul for sure. Ive attached unboxing images and how the flavor pods come packaged. You can see the device is very well made as well, the draw unfortunately while not as restrictive as I would like it to be but it gets the job done. Battery life is thankfully way way way better than the juul and I have to hand it to the Relx team because the flavors are actually very good comparatively.
With closed pod systems there isnt much to discuss really but Ill note down the main areas of concern:
Draw: Semi restrictive – could be tad tighter.
Availability: Not as common as the Juul. Available at VapeOnHai and Relx.Pk
Flavors: Great range and quite a few good ones.
Design and build: One of the best closed pod systems out there.
Battery life: It lasts me a day or more easily of regular use at the office
With that out of the way, Ill leave you with the short flavor reviews below:
This is a pure menthol flavor that unfortunately lacks the throat hit I would have expected. In terms of menthol though it is very refreshing and stands up to the myle menthol.
This isnt plain blueberry which was a surprise but who knew it would turn out to be such a nice flavor on such a closed pod system. Though to be fair its not as if ripe and sweet blueberries are bursting through the flavor but its a good decent blueberry tone that is easily discernible and menthol with it makes for a nice mellow vape.
Stand back other mango flavors from juul and myle and naked pod systems, we have the first creamy mango flavor courtesy of relx. But where it is creamy it fails to delivery on proper mango notes which results in a diluted mango note chock full of cream. Is it good, well, if it had a bit more sweetner then I would say yes but since it doesnt deliver in that aspect to I would consider it an ok/average flavor that can work as a mellow vape.
I dont know what the hell this is but it tastes bloody awful to me. Its supposed to be a dessert/ice pop based on mung beans that popular in eastern asia but by God they failed badly. Maybe some sweenter might have made it better but right now i would say STAY AWAY FROM LUDOU ICE!
I love it. It may take you a while to appreciate the flavor but damn it, its a very very good fruity salt nic flavor. In fact the best Ive had on a closed pod system. Being a salt nic flavor on a closed pod system, I couldnt tell apart the notes that well but I can tell you this, it gives off the mixed fruit taste very well.
Ok, this flavor is almost identical to lemongrass based green tea. Subtle sweetness and no harshness from the lemon. Any green tea fan will like this, that Im sure about but me, nope, gimme a coffee flavor any day.
Not a tobacco fan but ill say this, the Myle tobacco flavor is still the best ive tried to date. This is more dry/flu cured tobacco like and honestly thats the best I can come up with. I stopped vaping tobacco 5 years ago so I am not the best person to actually ask about tobacco flavors anymore.
