The Vladdin RE is a sleek and compact pod mod that is powered by a 350mAh rechargeable battery with a maximum wattage of 12W which enables you to satisfy any cravings. The 3.5V output provides the same great flavor and clouds every time you inhale.

The Vladdin RE comes with a charger, but it can be charged using any USB device. The Vladdin RE is aimed at beginners and casual vapers and is currently priced at $19.95.

What are the Features?

The all-in-one portable Vladdin RE is elegantly designed for e-juice and oil. It measures 19 mm x 11.4 mm x 90.3 mm and weighs 30 grams.

The classic automatic style has a top fill design that is optimized for nicotine salt-based e-liquid but works with any e-juice. Simply remove the silicon stopper from the tank and drop your e-liquid through one of the two holes on either side of the tank.

The Vladdin RE comes with refillable pods to keep each draw fresh. It also comes with a bottom micro USB charging port, short circuit protection, and low voltage detection. It offers consistent and efficient delivery with controlled power.

It contains a patented ceramic coil to enhance e-juice flavor and deliver a consistent output.

The device also comes in four different colors: Black, Titanium, Gold, or Rainbow. The Vladdin RE has a rechargeable battery and an LED battery indicator light, but you can also plug in the USB cord it came with, or any other USB cord, into the base of the device.

The Kit as a Whole

The overall kit is hard to fault. The starter kit comes with the Vladdin unit, a refillable pot, a USB charger, and a quick start guide. The nicotine salts are sold separately, but the inexpensive starter kit leaves enough room in your budget to buy whatever flavor of e-juice you prefer.

The Vladdin RE kit has a good battery life, refillable pods that last for 400 puffs, and an easily mobile design. At such an affordable price for a great product, the Vladdin RE is a must-have for all people who use e-cigarettes.

Internal Building Quality and Design

The building quality of this device is solid and extremely light, weighing 30 grams. The overall construction is excellent, maintaining a delicate balance between functional and stylish.

The Vladdin RE uses a ceramic coil inside the pod to enhance the e-juice taste. The coil reduces the size of the particles being absorbed to make it easier to take in the nicotine.

The Vladdin RE also has an LED light that changes color from green to yellow to red.

  • A green light means the vape is fully charged or has a large amount of battery life remaining.
  • The yellow light indicates the vape is 50% charged or less,
  • And the red light means the vape is going to die soon and a charger is needed.

The Battery

The battery is rechargeable with any USB cord. The vape mod comes with a USB cord, but if you have an android, PlayStation, or Amazon Alexa charger they also work with the Vladdin RE.

The battery, if fully charged, lasts almost all day for most people. The battery of the vape is also indicated with an LED light. Green for charged, yellow means it is starting to die, and red means the vape is going to die soon.

The Pod System

A myriad of vaping devices in today’s market have a closed pod system. This means the consumer purchases pods for a one time use and they throw the pod away once finished; however, the Vladdin RE has a refillable pod system.

A refillable pod system allows the consumer to add any nicotine salt juice which is recommended for use with this particular device.

The pod has a capacity of 1.5 ml. A 1.5 ml pod gives the consumer around 400 puffs before they have to refill it. The pod is refilled by removing the silicon cap and inserting the juice into either one of the holes on each side of the tank. Once your tank is filled, replace the stopper and attach the pod to the battery through its magnetic connection.

The Vladdin RE is draw activated so there are no buttons or settings.

What Kind of Vape Juice Should be Used in the Pod

The pod in the Vladdin RE is refillable. There is no need to go and buy a new pod each time it runs out of juice. You simply refill the pod by inserting e-juice in either of the two holes at the top of the pod. Any flavor of salt nicotine juice can be used with the pod.

How Long do Pods Last and How Often do they Need to be Changed

Occasionally, the pod for the Vladdin must be replaced because it will begin to burn. Once you taste a burnt flavor the pod should be replaced. This may occur once the pod has been refilled more than 20 times.

The Vladdin pod allows for up to 400 puffs because it holds 1.5 ml of juice. The portable pod differs from competitors because it is refillable and the amount of juice it can hold. The device is draw-activated meaning you breathe in on the top of the device to bring the smoke out of the unit.

How do I Use the Vladdin?

It is easy to use the Vladdin RE as it works the same as any other device. Take the pod included in the kit and insert it into the vape mod – just make sure the cut out on the pod matches the one on the vape pen.

Each pod comes with its own plastic mouthpiece which snaps off easily so you can remove the silicone cap before filling the tank. Using a dropper pour the e-juice into one of the two holes on the outer side of the tank. Make sure both holes are unplugged, so air doesn’t get trapped.

You can begin vaping once the pod is connected. All you have to do is draw on the mouthpiece because there are no activation settings.


You use the unit by pressing your mouth to the pod in the device. You then breathe in, and you will take in the smoke. A second breath, once the smoke is inside your mouth, allows it to enter your lungs. This enables the nicotine to give you a head rush. Breathe out and the smoke will come out of your mouth.

How does the Vladdin RE Shape up vs. Competitors?

The Juul

One of the most common vaping devices is the Juul. The Juul comes with a disposable prefilled 1 ml pod. Juul pods are sold in packs of four for $15-$20. A juul pod lasts for only 200 puffs, but the refillable pod the Vladdin RE comes with lasts for 400.

Juul pods cost on average $15-$20 dollars, but the average price of a bottle of juice for the Vladdin pod is around $15. This bottle contains 30 ml of juice. This means that the 1.5 ml pod can be refilled 20 different times. That’s over 8,000 puffs for $15 with the Vladdin.

Since each pod only contains 200 puffs that’s only 800 puffs for the same, or higher, price as getting 8,000 puffs from the Vladdin RE. The Vladdin RE is the obvious choice when it comes to getting the most puffs from your vape device. The Juul also only has a 150mAh battery so it needs charged more often.

The Suorin

The Suorin Drop is a round shaped vaping device whereas the Vladdin RE is a slim stick-like shape. The Suorin Drop also has a refillable pod system.

The Suorin actually has a 2 ml pod compared to the 1.5 ml pod of the Vladdin, but the Suorin’s retail price is $34.99 whereas the Vladdin can be purchased for $22.95. Do not let this .5ml difference stop you from saving money. Refilling a pod can last 5-20 seconds and having to do this a little less often than not does not account for $12 price difference.

Pros and Cons


  • A good battery life
  • Refillable pod
  • Slick design
  • Is reasonably priced


  • Needs to have its pod replaced every so often
  • The coil in the pod eventually begins to burn the juice
  • The battery life also doesn’t last the whole day


The Vladdin RE has great specs and comes at a low price, and its portable design an aesthetics earn lots of compliments. It gives off a tight mouth to lung vape and produces a consistent puff up until it cuts off. It produces a good cloud for its size, and the ceramic coils provide a great throat hit. It performs best with 50/50 blends much can handle any e-juice.

Because the Vladdin RE is cheaper than most vapes, one would think that it must come with some trade off; however, the Vladdin has better features than many of its competitors that come at a higher price. The lightweight and ergonomic design are easily portable, a consistent performance, no dry hits or leaking, and micro USB charging.

It is hard to find a real con about the Vladdin RE, but there are vapes out there with a larger sized pod. The device’s pod holds 1.5 ml of juice allowing for 400 puffs. This is twice as many puffs as one of its competitors: The Juul. Despite this, there are still devices that can hold 2 ml or even 2.5 ml of juice. This allows for less frequent refills and more time to get puffs off.

Good pod capacity and the battery charges in under an hour. The device is excellent for chain vaping. The pods don’t leak, and there is no gurgling or spitback when using the device.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
