REVIEW BY JAMES PARNELL Device Specifications: Ultra slim, micro-engineered stainless-steel blade Slide and lock mechanism Three-button power control Micro USB charge MyVype App (Available on Google Play) This new pod system from Vype uses custom closed-pod cartridges. It is a slightly larger variant of the iSwitch, featuring a bigger battery and three power settings. It looks and feels clean and corporate, making it perfect for work and smart occasions, and is available in either silver, black or blue. The construction is solid, finished with a soft-touch matte coating and is notably larger than many similar devices on the market. The ergonomic pebble shape is comfortable in-hand and features a discreet fire button on the outer edge. The base of the battery is angled which lends a certain visual appeal, but it does make it easy to knock the device over when standing it on a surface. - Great MTL experience The MAXX features the same slide-and-lock pod chamber and pods as the iSwitch. The pods are long and sleek, each containing 2ml of Fresh Mint, Forest Berries or Virginia Tobacco e-liquid. They include built-in overfill protection which prevents juice from entering the mouth, ensuring a smooth and mess-free vape. - Unsteady base, doesn’t stand up too well As for functionality, this device is straight-to-the-point, featuring three power levels, all of which impact the hit and vapour production. The hit from either of the nicotine strengths is impressive in respect to its specified milligram content. For example, the 3mg e-liquid gives a punchy throat- hit that is much smoother and with a more satisfying nicotine delivery than its competitors. The MyVype App acts as a diary and smoking-cessation aid, giving the user guidance and progress reports. This is a nice feature allowing people to track their use well beyond what a puff-counter alone could provide. This is a sturdy and easy-to-use pod device that will appeal to those wanting a vape that closely replicates the smoking experience. With each pod lasting around a day and a straight-forward app that tracks use, the iSwitch MAXX is primed for anyone making the switch. VAPER EXPO SHOWGUIDE | 145
