- best product everReview by Lacy Brown
I get tons of vapor from it, and like that it lasts me forever before I have to recharge it. I just want to say thank you to V4L for creating such a perfect ecigg. If you're looking for something to work for you then you should get this one.
Oh, also its really cool that you can switch from auto mode to manual. You just click the button 5 times and it switches. - WOW, how cool is that. :) (Posted on 4/19/13)

- The Zeus Rules All!Review by Darin
Those of you who know me on the forum know that, compared to most of you, I am still a novice vaper. I started my vaping journey in mid-December of last year. Through the encouragement and sound advice of one of my closest friends, I endeavored to make the switch from analogs to vaping, and I jumped in with both feet! My first experience with vaping was using the OMG All Day mod with a 6ml tank full of 24mg WOWbacco and a 1.5ohm carto. It quite literally blew my mind. I had no idea that the flavor, enjoyment, and satisfaction of puffing on my beloved (and very expensive) cigars could be replaced so completely with an e-cig-type device...
Like all of my hobbies (most of which could be considered "vice"), once my initial interest is piqued, I researched the heck out of it. I dove into this and other forums with a voracity some may consider a mild madness. I started ordering tanks, pre-filled cartos, and e-liquids. I then got my wife hooked, and because she likes them, ordered stick batteries in manual and auto. I back-tracked from the OMG in search of a more "stealthy" and compact unit, but found the stick batteries lacked the vapor production necessary to satisfy my cigar-minded cravings. I even remember posting somewhere on the forum that I wished V4L would come out with a more "cigar" like mod with a drip tip I could "bite and gnaw on". You know how it is when you switch from analogs: you are in search of something which most closely matches the tactile feel and "full" experience of your old analog choice, not just the vapor production and throat-hit...So I went back to my OMG, and I still do love it.
Then, by chance, I entered a V4L contest and won a Dial-A-Volt. To be fair, I don't think I would have ordered a DAV on my own. At the time, I just didn't get the whole "variable volt" scene. However, when it did arrive, I decided to give the DAV a fair shake, and I'm glad I did! I absolutely fell in love with it, (I think I may have mentioned this once or twice here on the forum...) and much like my experience with the OMG, I was convinced that NOTHING could top the DAV. Then there was the Auto DAV...and again the pattern repeated itself: Get new mod; love new mod; become convinced that nothing can be greater than new mod; get new-new mod, rinse and repeat...
Then, one day I got a vape-mail package that, yet again, blew my freaking mind! I remember opening each little box and saying over and over again in a most reverent whisper: "Wow!" "Wow!" "Wow!" I won't bore you with the details, but it went on like that for at least the first 15 minutes...The first thing that I noticed was the quality of the device. This is nothing new where V4L is concerned. One look at the OMG or DAV lineup and you know that these mods are well-built, quality machines.
The next thing that caught my attention (and held it…and still holds it) was the drip-tip. The DT which comes with the Zeus’ cartos is, IMHO, (and speaking from a purely cigar-obsessed perspective) revolutionary. The exterior is a firm and yet pliable silicone. The interior is a solid metal piece onto which the silicone outer shell firmly seats. This combination lends the tip the unique ability to be comfortably bitten upon and held in the teeth. Into the Zeus’ DT, V4L has engineered a most near-perfect replica of the experience of biting on my favorite stogie. And for that I tip my hat to you, good sirs and madams!
Moving right along, we come to one of a pair of the coolest features which the Zeus so rightfully touts: the dual mode switch. The Zeus takes away the age old dilemma: “Do I get an auto or manual battery?” With the Zeus one no longer has to choose. The conveniently located button high on the battery toward the carto, when pressed 5 times converts this lovable machine from manual to auto, and if you like, back again. The button is also back lit with a subtle LED. (mine is green).
The second in the “coolest features” category for the Zeus is the pass-thru port on the end of the battery. Just as one no longer has to decide “auto” or “manual”, one no longer has to settle for a stick batty PT. When plugged in via the USB/PT cable, the Zeus is not only acting like a PT, but is being charged as well. I use the PT cable when sitting in my favorite EZ chair working on my computer (as a matter of fact, I’m vaping on my Zeus in PT/Auto mode right now…) and when I’m driving down the road.
Want all day battery life? You Got It! This thing will literally go all day! I am talking 9-12 hours to the “blink” depending on your vaping style! The full Auto version does have a very small, and very surreptitious white LED on the tip just above the USB/PT port, and while charging the LED is red; when charged the LED is green. Long charging time? Forget About It!! You can plug the Zeus into your PT/USB cable and from the “blink” it only takes 3.5 to 4 hours to charge! Don’t have your USB adapter? No problem, just screw the Zeus onto the Slim Line Charger. This method will take 12 to 16 hours depending, though.
The cartos that come with the Vapor Zeus are the “Smileomizer” (affectionately known as Smileos”) 3.5ml, Single Coil, 2.5ohm cartos, and on the 5v Zeus battery, they kick like the proverbial mule. The vapor production is nothing short of amazing. When I was testing the Zeus for the very first time, I was puffing away at the kitchen table and my wife came into the kitchen; she almost lost it, accusing me of going back to those “damned ol’ stogies!” due to the tremendous volume of vapor hanging in the air all around my head! All the flavors I have tried (as of this post over 20 flavors) interact well with the Zeus cartos, and the 5 volt output.
I have been intentionally somewhat abusive to my Zeus (while watching the sky for errant lightning bolts) to see how the unit will hold up. Over the past 28+ days I have dropped it, sat upon it, carried it in my pocket, soaked the cartos in 100 proof, washed them and spun them dry. I have filled them and refilled them I don’t know how many times…and the Zeus works as good tonight as it did right out of the box. I keep waiting and dreading the day when one of the 2 cartos I was sent starts to leak or burn out on me, but it has not yet happened. Thank Zeus!
The Vapor Zeus, as of now, comes in two colors: the cigar wrapper we are familiar with from the Titan Soft Touch series, and matt black (also Soft Touch). I love this feature as well.
What don’t I like about the Zeus? I really can’t point to anything just yet that I don’t like about this unit. I foresee some possible problems with the (my beloved) drip tip. I am concerned about the longevity of the silicone exterior; however, I am a heavy gnasher (an actual word? Sure, if I say it is…) and have not yet begun to wear it out. Also, I would like to see some sort of cover or “plug” for the USB port on the end. I carry my Zeus in my shirt or side pants pocket and lint buildup and foreign debris has become an issue. For those worried about the weight of the Zeus: don’t be. It is comparable to the Auto DAV with a 3.5ml tank.
My overall view of this unit is hands down “Two Thumbs UP!” It’s my go-to for all-day vaping. I have a hard time setting it aside to enjoy my new Auto DAV! My advice to you is to definitely get one of these as soon as it becomes available. Steve Milin’s vision of the supreme ruler of all mods has truly come to fruition! Well done, sir!

Who is Vapor4Life Electronic Cigarettes?
Vapor4Life is a leading distributor and manufacturer of Electronic Cigarettes and e-liquids in the United States. Vapor4Life is located in the North Shore suburbs of Chicago and serves Electronic Cigarette users (also known as “vapers”) across the globe. Vapor4Life is committed to delivering the highest quality Electronic Cigarettes and e-liquids to consumers.
What are Electronic Cigarettes?
Electronic Cigarettes, also known as ecigs or e-cigarettes, are designed to deliver nicotine to the user in the same fashion as a traditional cigarette does. An e-cigarette has two parts, the battery and the cartomizer. The cartomizer houses the e-liquid, a solution of nicotine and flavoring. The cartomizer screws onto the e-cigarette battery and the battery powers the heating element in the cartomizer, producing vapor. Vapor4Life e-cigarettes come in two styles, automatic and manual. Automatic e-cigarettes are designed to draw the same way as a traditional cigarette. Manual e-cigarettes have a button to initiate the draw. Pressing and holding the button will activate the heating element in the cartomizer, producing vapor. Vapor4Life is also the sole creator and distributor of the world’s first dual mode Electronic Cigarette, the Vapor Zeus and the first automatic variable voltage Electronic Cigarette, the Dial-A-Volt.
Choosing an e-cigarette flavor.
Vapor4Life offers over 160 flavors in tobacco, menthol, fruit, dessert, coffee and beverage options. When you first decide to make the switch to vaping, we recommend choosing a flavor similar to the brand of traditional cigarettes you are familiar with. We also offer six sampler packs of e-cigarette flavors that come with five unique flavors to try several flavors without committing to a whole box of one flavor.
Choosing a nicotine strength.
Vapor4Life offers seven different nicotine strengths to choose when you first make the switch to e-cigarettes. Vapor4Life's available strengths are 0mg (no nicotine), 4mg, 8mg, 11mg, 18mg, 24mg, and 36mg. You can refer to the Vapor4Life nicotine strength chart to see our general guidelines for choosing a nicotine strength. Vapor4Life suggests trying multiple nicotine strengths to find the appropriate nicotine strength for you.
Transitioning to e-cigarettes from traditional cigarettes
When you make the switch to e-cigarettes, there are a few things to keep in mind. The e-cigarette is powered by a battery that will need to be recharged. Vapor4Life's batteries have a lithium ion cell that can be recharged up to 300 times. The cartomizers are available in both pre-filled and blank options. The pre-filled cartomizers are the equivalent to 15-20 traditional cigarettes. Vapor4Life offers all of the flavors that come in pre-filled cartomizers, in 30mL e-liquid bottles. pre-filled cartomizers and blank cartomizers are reusable and can be refilled up to five times.
Another thing to consider when making the switch to e-cigarettes is cleaning and maintenance. Over time, e-liquid residue will build up on your e-cigarette battery and e-cigarette charger. For the best vaping experience we recommend cleaning your e-cigarette battery and e-cigarette charger at least once each week. To clean the e-cigarette battery and e-cigarette charger, use an ethyl-based alcohol and gently clean off the black e-liquid residue.
Vapor4Life offers several e-cigarette Starter Kits. Whether you're brand new to vaping, or have been using e-cigs for years, we've got your back! Our Starter Kits range in price from $29.95 for our Vapor King Slim Starter Kit to $94.95 for our Vapor Zeus Dual Mode Starter Kit so you can find a kit that will fit your budget and vaping style.

If you want the longest-lasting E-Cig battery that gives plumes of flavorful vapor, the Vapor Zeus is for you. Grab a Starter Kit today that includes everything you need to get vaping - a battery, battery charger, and a flavor (either in a prefilled cartomizer, or refillable tank or Smileomizer and juice). Happy vaping!
