Vape Caviar Review: An E-Juice Company, Not an E-Juice Flavor
Vape Caviar is a Las Vegas-based e-juice distributor. The brand has an online presence where customers can browse its wide-selection of e-liquids. Vape Caviar carries over ten different e-juice brands, including names like Naked 100, Shijin Vapor, and Milk Berry. The brand carries only e-juices. The only hardware it has on its site is SMOK Infinix refillable pods. There also no vaping devices for dry herb or concentrates.
Vape Caviar offers vapers the chance to buy e-juice in bundles. They can choose from Plume brand sample bottles - up to five bottles in a package - for a taste of all their flavors.

The Vape Caviar brand was established in 2015 to provide as many e-liquid brands under one roof. The company has an address in Las Vegas, which is its distribution center, as it does not have a physical store location. The Las Vegas location is where the company ships out its products.
The company offers shipping throughout the US, but it is unclear if they ship internationally. Vape Caviar offers only e-juices. It has several brands from favorites like Naked 100, Milk Berry, and Plume Juice, the latter of which has its section. The Plume Brands section of the website features ten different varieties, ranging from regular nicotine to nicotine salt options.
The website has a section for “Hardware,” but every category, though, from box mods to RDAs to mods sits empty, except for the SMOK Infinix pods (not even the device, just the pods), which are currently the only vape gear VC offers.
Vape Caviar is, at this point, only selling e-juices. The site claims that it is working on adding more brands and e-juice selections. It even states that it adds new brands every month, although there has not been anything new on the site for months – e-juice or hardware.
The Pixy is a brand of e-juice made by the Shinjin label of e-liquids. The brand consists of three fruit-based flavors, with the option of adding a shot of menthol to the three for an added touch of refreshment. The three primary flavors are:
Sour Green Apple
The brand gravitates toward mixing sweet and tart flavors, obviously, but the flavors are all evened out. Neither one leans too heavily to one extreme or the other. Cucumber Watermelon is the brand’s sweetest selection, although it does not overpower and has a mellow, refreshing aftertaste. The Mango Lime is the most unique, as it combines two different flavors, which bring out the best in each other. Users can also order the Chilled versions of all three, which adds menthol to their flavor profiles.
The liquids are available in 100ml bottles, with VG/PG ratios at 70/30, and they come in three nicotine options 0mg, 3mg, 6mg.
The SMOK Infinix pods are the only vaping devices that VC has on its hardware page. There are categories for various types of vaping gear, but they are empty. There’s no word as to whether there will be more gear posted. The Infinix pods are refillable, and they can hold up to 2ml of e-liquid.
The cartridges have a side fill-port that is stopped by a rubber grommet. The pod’s mouthpiece is removable, but the coil inside is not. The cartridge features a horizontal coil atomizer with organic cotton wicks. The pod fits into the Infinix device via a magnetic connection, and there are two gold-plated battery contacts on the base of the pods. The SMOK Infinix is ideal for nicotine salt e-juice.
This sample pack from Plume e-juices features two flavor profiles and gives vapers four, 30ml bottles to vape. The profiles range from candy and fruit, the latter of which contains fruit flavors like blueberry, watermelon, and grape. Users can select from any one of the four flavors, including Blue Skeet (blueberry hard candy), Green Skeet (grape flavored hard candy), Goon Berries (Blueberries and Dragon Fruit), Watermalone (hard candy watermelon).
The four e-liquid all come in child-proof, Gorilla bottles for convenient refilling. The four flavors lean heavily on the hard candy sweetness of brand names like Skittles, as the blueberry and grape flavors are the most like their namesakes. Goon Berries and Watermalone have more tartness hiding behind their initial sweetness. The four flavors have several nicotine options available, including 0mg, 3mg, 6mg.
#4 Plume Nicotine Salt E-Juices
Strong Nic Salt Options
8.5/10 Review score
Another four-pack from Plume Juice, these four flavors span the brand’s nicotine salt collection. The four-pack comes in the same quantity as the previous bundle – four, 30ml bottles – and features the following four flavors:
Straw Wah: Candy Watermelon and Sweet Strawberry
Drunk Monkey: Strawberry Banana
Vanilla Custard: Sweet French Vanilla and Custard Notes
Rain: Pineapple Kiwi
There is only one nicotine option, 25mg. The flavors are fruit-based, with a few hints of a dessert or candy flavors. The Vanilla Custard option is what stands out for its smooth and delectable inhale. The Pineapple Kiwi e-juice, Rain, feels as refreshing as fat, Amazonian raindrops falling on your tongue, with the last two providing satisfaction throughout the day with their blend of sweet and fruity flavors.
#5 CSTD — Temptation
Tempting Fruit and Custard Flavor
8/10 Review score
CSTD, which is supposed to stand for “custard,” is an off-shoot of the Plume brand and features flavors like Temptation. The inviting name suggests the e-juice has a lot to offer, and it does. Vapers will notice the soft and juicy blueberries that make up one-half of the three main flavor profiles of this juice at the start.
The other halves are pineapple and custard flavor, which rounds out the experience, leaving vapers feeling like they just ate a blueberry pineapple custard pie. This e-juice comes in a single, 120ml bottle and offers three nicotine strengths, 0mg, 3mg, and 6mg. The liquid also has a ratio of 80/20 VG/PG making it ideal for drippers and sub-ohm tanks.
Vape Caviar offers shipping via the USPS with priority shipping, taking between 1-3 days. The company does not offer free shipping; at least, it appears that it does not. Shipping costs are calculated at the check-out, and it looks like the company does offer international shipping, although it is not guaranteed.
Vape Caviar does not offer regular discounts to customers or customers who are in the military (active-duty or veteran). It says that they offer lower prices than the competition, which does apply to the larger 120ml bottles they offer. The same size on other sites is much higher. The website does not provide any promotions other than the options of buying e-juice bundles.
There is not a lot of information around Vape Caviar’s customer satisfaction rating. Many people have had few to no problems with the company’s shipping and return policies. The scores of its juices are also high, with many people praising the authentic flavor profiles of all their e-juices.
Humboldt Vape Tech
Humboldt Vape Tech is a vape company responsible for creating the popular concentrates atomizers, Sai and Sequoia. The brand operates a website for its brand, where they primarily sell concentrates atomizers and vape mods to accompany them. Humboldt Vape Tech does not sell e-liquid vaping gear like e-juice, e-liquid tanks, or even e-liquid itself.
The brand does carry box mods like the Eleaf Pico or the VooPoo Drag to pair with their 510-threaded atomizers, but that is pretty much it. Humboldt Vape Tech ships in both the US and Canada, as they only sell hardware and do not sell cannabis concentrates, solid or liquid.
VapeBox is a one-stop, online vape retailer that offers monthly subscribers different vape boxes built around their preferences. Users who prefer e-juice only can get that box. Users who are experienced coil builders can get the Enthusiasts plan, and so on, as the brand has five different subscription plans that feature a mix of vape juice, pod systems, and other accessories.
For people who do not want a monthly plan, Vape Box also has an online store that features several e-liquid brands, vape makers, and other accessories for e-liquid vaping. Vape Box does not offer any dry herb or concentrates devices or accessories.
Final Impressions: Vape Caviar: Elegance for the Vape Tanks
Vape Caviar is the retail arm of Plume e-juices, which is a California-based e-juice maker. Despite this connection, Vape Caviar offers many other brands of e-liquid in both regular and nicotine salt formulations. The company provides many 120ml bottle options for much less than regular e-juice companies or the bigger, online vape retail stores.
It is very little in the way of vape hardware to get on the Vape Caviar website, which is a shame. Vape Caviar has a good selection of brands that are not always available at different sites, so they are worth a look.
