OverviewThe Vapor Zeus is a nice change of pace from the typical vaporizer pen. This device is one of the first auto variable voltage devices on the market. The goal: to deliver massive vapor and a great throat hit without all the complicated gadgetry like you find with other devices in its category. The Vapor Zeus is very similar to their older “dial-a-volt” design but with a few more tweaks, primarily done to their latest version of a cartomizer – the “Smileomizer” – clever. I have a few vaping friends who swear by their Zeus, so I was pretty eager to see what this device has to offer.
When checking out the Vapor Zeus kit for the first time, we noticed right away that we were looking at a design that was completely different than anything we were used to. This is primarily due to their “smileomizer” cartomizer they use, and we thought it was pretty cool and something we have never seen before. The batteries are pretty similar to other batteries you would find on your average ego. Having used countless vape pen style e-cigs in the past for our reviews, we have seen some pretty awesome stuff… and some pretty questionable products as well. So at first, we were kind of skeptical of the new-fangled smileomizer but as you will see in the rest of this review, our skepticism was short lived.

Setting this up was fairly easy – after filling the smileomizer and screwing on the variable voltage battery, it was ready to use. It is also important to note that this device is powerful and produces a lot of vapor, so we recommend this one for heavy vapers!
The smileomizer fill-up is easy to fill, thanks to it abnormally large gap from the edges to the center tip – making missing your mark almost impossible. Once connected I simply turned the dial to the voltage I wanted, and I was ready to vape. The red dash on the dial makes it’s easy to dial in with solid accuracy. The lower voltage was ok but when I cranked it to 4.2 (the range is from 3.2 to 4.8), the output was almost perfect. And with the tip being made of rubber, you can bite down on this one making it practically a hands-free vaping device – a hard to find feature for sure. About as hassle free as it gets and the smileomizer holds a ton of ejuice, it felt like I went two days between refills. Solid cloud output and the flavor was pretty impressive.
Vapor4Life offers a large variety of e-juice flavors, primarily their focus is on the tobacco flavors and has over 25 different variations to choose from. V4L is also one of the few vendors that offer a 36mg nicotine strength that is just off the charts in my book as I usually go with something around 10mg at most. Nevertheless, if you are a heavy smoker or you know someone who craves nicotine more than most, these guys have you covered. The “outlaw” has the resemblance of an unfiltered cig and is one of the strongest tobacco flavored juices I’ve ever tasted. On the opposite end of the spectrum, their “pink lemonade” fell a little short with little aftertaste.
When I first read about the Zeus, I felt it might be a little gimmicky. But after using it, and using it what ended up being about three weeks I can truly say this is an awesome device. The battery was long-lasting, and the automatic switch and the voltage dial makes this device ridiculously easy to use – I know that gets said a lot, but this one is hard to beat in that aspect. The downside is this one is not the cheapest of the bunch but if are looking to have just one solid device in your arsenal, the price can be overlooked. And lastly, that smileomizer is easy to fill due to its positioning of the center pin – small feature but easy to fall in love with.
