I want my money are a different device . i will keep writing reviews until i get my money, next is face book, instagram
An update to my review from yesterday, not seen on here yet.
For that DOA Pod I complained about, a few strokes w/emery board across gold contacts and test meter went from 0 OHM to 1.8 OHM and it should be functional now.
Based in the reviews of this system I decided to pick it up. Initially it was okay with the blue raspberry tasting slightly soapy rather than candy-like. However after hitting the pod maybe 10-15 times it stopped producing vapor. Looking at the bottom of the pod there looks to be some kind of corrosion on the connections and the pod is unusable. This is unacceptable as I haven't even had the pods a day. If I could get a refund on this product I absolutely would. The only redeeming quality is that the hits do feel cleaner than a traditional salt nic pod, albeit slightly harsher.
I liked it the first time I used it and then the pod started leaking and spitting into my mouth. The hits are very inconsistent. Sometimes you'll get a good hit and other times barely anything will come out. I bought more pods before I realized how bad they actually are.
Seems like this is a product that directvapor bought into and are pushing. Was offered the kit and two cartridges for a buck and couldn’t resist. My normal stealth vape is a smok novo and riptide’s kit doesn’t come close to it. Non refillable cartridges that you only get from them makes your choices on flavor very limited. It’s an alternative to nic salts but seems just as harsh, vapor production is minimal. I got mint and tobacco flavors, tobacco tasted like stale cheerios, couldn’t take more than a handful of hits. Mint wasn’t bad but not great. Not sure about battery life because it just wasn’t gonna work for me. I’m pretty set on my juices, and I can’t use them with this. If you’re quitting smoking and haven’t tried much yet, this might work great for you, it’ll get much pricier than refillable pod options though as you’ll probably vape about a pod a day. Reminded me of when I first quit smoking and bought cheap pens from the gas station, which if it weren’t for those, I would’ve never vaped to begin with. For the experienced vaper, steer clear of this, get a smok novo or the countless other great options. Recently bought a smok xforce and was blown away at vapor production, flavor, and battery life, and it was in this $20 price range on elementvape, direct vapor doesn’t carry it for whatever reason.
I wrote a review like this about a week ago and I’m still seeing the same reviews and 5 star average, it’s buggin me, this is not a 5 star product in my opinion.
Directvapor peeps: I’m a pretty regular customer, email me at [email protected] if there’s some issue with my review(s) that are keeping them from being posted. I’m really being honest here, and if there’s anything making my reviews irrelevant or untrustworthy, I’d like to know! I love your guys’ fast free shipping and your pricing is usually awesome, been a fan, you’re my go-to site. This just kinda irked me.
I was wondering why the site kept pushing this product offering special after special and i finally bit for 10 bucks and 15% off my order. But even at 10 bucks, it’s a gyp. The first pod worked but irritated the throat like salt nic even at 2.4%. And the flavor is really light, it tastes mostly like regular tobacco flavor. The second pod doesn’t work at all. I loved the small size but will stick to my smok nard vape. Wouldn’t recommend this at all.
i got this a while ago and never hit it. i got the night leaf tobacco and mint, both 5%. hits well but the flavors were just not enjoyable.
i’ve been vaping 4 years and have juuled for a while and this barely makes the cut.
the device itself works good and great packaging but simply just gross to hit.
Love the idea of this device, but MY experience was a bummer - the Riptide i received failed all my expectations. Nobody in my house wants this thing. I can't even give it away. The juice is gross & i get more in my mouth than i vape, but even if it wasn't... there is an extremely limited choice of flavors & only prefilled pods are an opt-in. I give 2 stars for design & quality of the device - i must say its built sturdy with good material. As for function & overall experience i give zero. Its unusable & just clutter in my house now. I attribute Ripetides fail to the pods. They spit, they sputter and the taste is
Seems like people are having enjoyable experience with this device - Not Me. I'm so glad i didn't pay full price. I got this as an add-on offer for $5. Maybe they we're trying to get rid of a bad batch? First off the juice has a terrible synthetic taste... Worst I've ever tasted. Blue Raspberry, is still a full pod after 2 months in a house with 3 vapors & more that visit. Even in desperate times its been a last resort & quickly put back on the shelf. Tropical was a better, more bearable taste, not so bad. Secondly, this device spits & crackles horrible. Every draw is a mouth full of nasty juice. Not happy & i just cannot recommend this product. Smh when i see they are getting $20 for this thing. It's a shame because the size & feel of the device is nice. Perfect fit in the palm of your hand & comfortable to hold, easy to hide. It would make an excellent budget friendly device.
Received this kit for just $1 on a special offer and not sure whether I got my money’s worth. Tobacco flavor tasted just like stale Cheerios, couldn’t take more than a few drags and the mint was ok at best. Very harsh, peppery drags, with restricted flow. That was with the lowest nic content they have, and I’m a heavy mod vaper. Even if I did like the flavors, the pods aren’t refillable so i’d have to buy a pod a day which makes this a much more expensive device than any refillable pod system out there. My smok novo remains my stealth vape. Bought for the same price, I can refill the included pods with the juice of my liking from the millions of flavor options out there, (not just a handful of riptide flavors). I can get a much thicker cloud with less effort, also battery life and look and feel are superior. Perhaps the novos are just that good as I haven’t tried many other pod systems. Nothing compares to my mod, but for stealth, buy a smok novo, this riptide thing is cheap, gimmicky garbage, don’t waste your money.
Have had two of them and the batteries have only lasted a couple weeks before stopping taking a charge. Now I have 10 cartridges and no battery pack.
I just switched to the V2 pro series and was loving it...when the company suddenly went out of business. I've been looking for a replacement and bought this just out of curiosity.
When it arrived I unpacked it, charged it, open the e-juice pod (it's packaged really well) and inserted the pod into the end if the Ripstick. It's magnetic so it just clips right in.
What I love about this is it's about the size and shape of a USB memory stick. I love the texture of it, it's grippable so it doesn't slip out of your hand or pocket. it's a really slick design. Plus it slips rate into a pants pocket and you can't even tell it's there. I'm strictly a menthol smoker so I can't speak to the flavors, but what I can tell you is how easy it is to use. There's no filling up a tank or the mess that goes with that, and there's no snap crackle or pop coming out of a vaporizer. The battery lasts about 6-8 hours depending on use but at this price you can have a couple so you always have a charged unit. Finally, this little thing is called The RipStik for a reason! There's some serious vape coming out of here! Lol
I really, really like it. I wish I didn't have to order it online!
I quit smoking a year ago, and have been only vaping on my mod. Wanted a backup since I was using backup since my IPV broke, this isn’t it. Maybe if I was just stopping smoking, but the nice throat hit burns and is just too strong for this girl.
It works. You definitely feel the nicotine. Great stealth pod.
Just wanted to put my 2 bits in on this product!!
I am so Happy with this little DYNMO FOR ITS SIZE!
Riptide hit the mark with this one! I’ve been vaping for over 5 years now and have finally found a device that helps me not want to smoke cigs! So awesome and can’t qait to order more blueberry and try different flavors! Definitely a must if your trying to quit smoking
Maybe I got a broken one. I even had a friend that is more experienced with vaping try it. Still no smoke after the hit. Love the flavor of the pod
Just got it . No complaints. Works great
I love that the size of it makes it easy to carry around at work. I enjoy the tobacco flavor but not a huge fan of the tropical. Hits nice and smooth in my opinion. Only issue I have is the pods seem to be looser on it now than when I first got it. Other than that it's a great little device.
I've tried almost every salt device, open and closed system out there. For reference, I vaped Juul (creme pods) for a long time, got sinus infections every other month for a year until I switched to Myle (VGOD Cubano pods). Switch back to Juul and voila sinus infection back. I suspect there is something in Juul pods that is not very healthy. In any case, I'm used to vaping 4.5%-5.0% nicotine in pods, and 20-35% in devices like LostVape Orion and Justfogg MiniFit.
Now that Myle discontinued sales in N America I've been back in the market. Had high hopes for this. Off the bat, 5.0% in both berry crunch and tobacco are exTREMELY peppery and harsh on the nicotine. Like a super spicy throat hit. Not sure if it was the menial amount of spit back or just the sheer amount of nicotine but good god are those things harsh. Couldn't make it through more than 5 puffs on either of them.
TL;DR: 5.0% pods are peppery and harsh on the nicotine (I tried berry crunch and tobacco). I'm a nicotine addict of 15 years, been vaping for 7, nic salts for 2 yrs and never hit something quite this harsh. I'll revisit when I try the 2.4% pods.
Not bad... Got tabacco flavor pod its kinda weak on flavor and blue raspberry and it tastes just like blur raspberry SLURPY.. Yum. I will buy the higher nicotine pod next time and hope for a btr throat hit.
My order just came in today & I like it I own several devices from Vaporesso/Sourin Drop to Blu & Juul but I love the feel & size of the Riptide.It's not your regular plastic device it's actually rubber grip material it was delivered fully charged & the pods literally slide right in but in a good sturdy way just like the device feels small & portable but solid & could probably drop it multiple times & wouldn't be worried.The pull is great I chose Mint 5% & it says nicotine/tobacco free but still satisfying & definitely worth a shot if you're into trying out something new I can't wait to order some other flavors.
i've done the whole super powerful giant mod thing and was just looking for a backup, but the ripstick is my new main. Super super portable like you gotta hold it to know what i mean. probably gonna get more. i could totally carry a bunch of them in less space than my aegis legend takes up.
This is a good, reliable starter kit that’s best for those who want a good amount of nicotine. I hit it less than I used to hit my pod mod since the nicotine satisfies me for way longer.
Picked up this kit since I was having some problems with salt nicotine. In my opinion this is the better way to vape. The flavor is stronger, and the nicotine keeps me satisfied.
Hands down my favorite portable kit. The nicotine really feels way smoother and more potent than nicotine salts. The flavors I’ve tried so far are all good and the throat hit is definitely decent.
