Today we’ll review and share this vape, which should have been experienced by many vapers already. And it’s not bad according to the feedback from some friends. In addition, I specially contacted the brand side to apply for the review of the real device of this pod system – gippro dragon dance vape.
gippro group, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, focuses on the research and development of the world’s leading atomization technology and heat not burn technology. The company has a professional and technical R & D team and ID design team, advocating a more green, healthy and dynamic lifestyle, and creating a variety of vape pens, HNB and other fashion products.
Today, we are reviewing a gippro starter kit pod system. Let’s share its features one by one!
[packaging & Design]
The packaging box design adopts the popular square box shape and the way of opening the upper and down cover and box cover, which are all very classical and accepted by the public. The milky white outer packaging design has only a pod system device with line drawing on the front of the packaging, and the central ring has a strong stereoscopic sense of convex work processing, which is good for the ring of the corresponding mouthpiece. At the same time, the device line drawing is decorated with gold plating light which embodies its high quality. Although its appearance is simple, the overall device is fashionable. These details are very good.
It should be noted that gippro has always been in the best-selling list of e-cigarettes in Japan. We can see the back of the device through the instructions. It’s all marked in Japanese. It doesn’t matter if you don’t understand it. Considering that these brands have double marks in their internal instructions, let’s open it first.
[Unboxing & starter kit content]
When opening, the damping of Up-down cover design is not bad, but it is a little tight. I hope that the brand can make some optimization and improvement in the later stage, or it can learn from some mobile devices to do auxiliary paper pulling and so on, which will make it more convenient for users. After all, everyone should have an exciting unboxing experience feeling when a new device is in hand. And it would be better to magnify this feeling of users.
The inner box device is still consistent with its appearance style, but what still needs to be praised is the transparent cut and ground paper that has a sense of mystery. It corresponds to the line pattern of the device on the front of the outer package, and the most important thing is that it is connected with the separation layer, so it is convenient to open the inner layer, which is more practical and convenient than the previous experience of some separating papers.
Starter kit basic content:
2. Pod flavors * 2
3. Micro USB charging cable
4. Instruction and warranty card
[Actual user experience]
gippro has many colors to choose from. At present, there are: Fritillaria white, sea fog blue, jadeite cold jade and mirage black. I specially selected a white one, which is different from the baking paint and others. If you describe it, the white paint will be more special when you choose a car. Compared with this device, the appearance of white paint is really amazing. The pearl white color matches the mellow and full device, which looks extremely cute.
The whole device is also made of aluminum magnesium alloy, which has been anodized and sprayed with fine surface paint. It feels smooth and comfortable like a baby’s skin.
The starter kit comes with 2 different flavors of pods: fresh mint and mango grapefruit.
Each cartridge or pod in the package is packed and sealed independently, but no detailed taste mark is seen;
There is a sealing plug at the top mouthpiece of the pod to prevent the e-liquid from leaking out due to the pressure in the transportation process. At the same time, it is noted that there are two small sealing plugs at the bottom of the pod. Here are two air inlets designed. This point is very good, which can be realized in the later use;
The atomizer capacity of 2.0ml is already a very high configuration in the starter kit.
It is recommended that you pull out the sealing plug and leave it in the upright direction for one minute before use.
The design of the mouthpiece part is still full of care. The mouthpiece is designed in an arc shape. The middle circle is a piece of raised package. It looks like a smiley face design. It’s also a ring feature sign of gippro brand. The proper section design fits the lips very well. The surface is matte treated, which effectively solves the problem of condensate and mouth water sticking.
The user manual is not only embellishment and collocation, but also an indispensable part for a starter kit. In the absence of more official materials and explanations, the instruction manual is particularly important.
Detailed introduction of the use of the user manual, the center’s gippro ring brand style is once again reflected.
Although the back of the outer package is in Japanese, the enclosed user instruction manual has been translated into two languages, one is in Chinese and the other is in Japanese. It is recommended that you read it carefully before use. All the parameters, use and precautions are also introduced in detail.
[Overall review & summary]
First of all, let’s talk about the device workmanship, from the outer packaging to the overall design, and then to the mouthpiece, almost all of which are of the same style and consistent. The whole body only has the matching of gippro and the indicator light on the top, which is simple and fashionable. The device modeling belongs to the round and full design, and the integrated body molding workmanship is flawless, the grip feeling is very comfortable. After using too many the vape pen with the shape of the straight tube, when you suddenly picked up this gippro vape, you’re going to have a very different experience.
The pod adopts the magnetic design, and there is no need to distinguish between positive and negative sides, plug and vape. It needs to be reminded that the indicator light is designed as a white light color, which is intuitive. When it needs to be charged, the white light will flash 10 times in a row.
This device is very comfortable to use, with different flavors of pods and smooth taste, it is exactly suitable for long term vaping, especially the design of built-in air inlet, which makes the inhaling resistance moderate and closer to the cigarette. If the highest rate is 10 points, I will give it 9 points.
Finally, let’s talk about the flavor of pods. In addition to the two in the package, there are seven unique flavors for users to choose from. At present, there are nine flavors, respectively:
Flavors / nicotine content and taste experience:
1. Fresh mint 0mg / ml
This kit comes with mint flavor with 0 nicotine content, which is fresh and elegant compared with the previous one. The cool mint flavor is comfortable and transparent, which is very soothing and refreshing.
2. Mango grapefruit 0mg / ml
This flavor is the only one of several mixed flavors. It has a light mango fruit flavor and a slight sour grapefruit into the throat. It’s very novel. The aftertaste and a moderate sweet taste are very unique. Suitable for long term vaping. This is also a 0-nicotine flavor in the suit.
3. Pleasant tobacco 20mg / ml
Many beginners who don’t like the taste of tobacco, this one may make you change. The taste of tobacco is not so strong, but mellow tobacco has a unique nutty flavor. The throat feel is pure and thick, accompanied by a very addictive sense of hitting the throat. It is suggested that friends who don’t like the taste of tobacco before must try again on this one.
4. Sweet litchi 20mg / ml
It has light litchi flavor, good reduction, fresh taste with sweet taste, full mouth. Friends who like sweet but not too strong, can try this one.
5. Peach Oolong Tea 20mg / ml
Compared with the little sweet lychee flavor, this one is more full-bodied, with a strong peach flavor and a light oolong tea flavor, which is more suitable for friends who like the strong taste.
6. Refreshing cucumber 30mg / ml
The taste of green melon has been used before, but the frequency is relatively small. The mouth is fresh, fragrant and full-bodied, especially with cold taste and long-term vaping.
7. Chilled mung bean 30mg / ml
Mung bean is still a very classic taste, but it’s a little sweeter. It’s icy and tastes more delicate with a strong mung bean flavor.
8. Fresh Hami melon 30mg / ml
Compared with the previous one, this Hami melon has a super-rich aroma and sweet melon flavor. You can enjoy this feeling, especially the feeling that you can return to the cool summer sitting around eating Hami melon in an instant, with a high degree of real melon taste.
9. Real tobacco 50mg / ml
The only one with high nicotine content in several flavors. Compared with Pleasant tobacco, this one is more addiction reliving, which has a stronger tobacco flavor and has a strong sense of throat hit. If you are a heavy old smoker, it is recommended to start this one directly. If you are a novice player, you are not suggested to try this flavor, you should choose other ones.
Finally, the conclusion is as follows:
This is a device that’s suitable for long term use. It is recommended mainly because of the taste. The flavor experience is very good, and the vapor production and vaping resistance are adjusted moderately. The battery capacity of 400mah can fully meet the use of a day, and it will take about an hour to recover the full power. In addition, the large capacity design of 2.0ml pod is very convenient, and it is enough to carry a pod outside that supports 2-3 days use.
When it comes to the vape juice leakage that we are concerned about, there is no leakage at present. The condensate is a little bit but not obvious. At this time, the design of the mouthpiece works really well. In addition, when you receive the cartridge and open it up, after the sealing plug is pulled out, you must put it upright quietly for a while, so that the taste will be richer and more full when you vape then.
