Here it is, Katz's review of the Vapor Zeus Dual Mode & Auto Vapor Zeus.
Our friends at Vapor4Life kindly sent me one of each of these to try out as a member of the testing team. As you know, I don't do tech talk or endurance tests, this is my highly personal & honest review of these two batteries after a week of use.
First off, I love the draw on both of these batteries. Exactly what I want the draw to be - it requires me to 'drag', like a you-know-what, but doesn't make me work too hard for my reward. If you like the draw of a Vapor Titan, you will love these.
Both of these battery types have super-fast charging, which means you need less of them than other types. I haven't tried either as pass-throughs, it's not something I do.
I really thought the 5V would scorch my juice or kill a smileo faster, however that doesn't seem to be the case. It brings out a freshness in my New Menthol that makes the Zeus my favourite battery type.
Vapour production & throat hit I got from my Smileomizer with the Zeus really does surpass the Ego, DAV, Titan or anything else I've tried (including a high-end non-Vapor4Life device).
The soft-touch finish is nice in the hand, they aren't heavy or too bulky (subjective, I know - I was using Auto DAVs before these). Small Smileomizers fit flush on them, and they look classy. People keep asking about the 'magic wand' I wear on a lanyard.
A few words on the Vapor Zeus Dual Mode in particular:
this is something I would not have bought for myself as I am a confirmed auto user, however right from the off, I loved this battery! It has become the battery I reach for every morning.
I've tried it in Manual mode and it is great, however in Auto mode, teamed with a Smileomizer, it really impresses me. It is longer than the Zeus Auto, but I didn't find it an issue.
Thing is, I love the button. It is very well placed, doesn't stick out too far, is easy & very comfortable to use. I suspect it might be a little too easy to accidentally press if in a pocket for instance, but as I use it on auto, doesn't affect me.
I love that when you switch modes, the LED flashes twice to confirm the change. Most of all, I love that it lights up with a green Vapor4Life logo when I take a drag. So cool!
Is there anything I don't like about these two batteries? Nope. These are great batteries. In conjunction with Smileomizers, I rate them 5 stars out of 5 - and this is not a rating I give lightly.
Congratulations Vapor4Life on the Zeus, they are an excellent product and I highly recommend them
