Well it’s different! Different from its competitive cousins that is. In fact with so many colors to choose from, it’s not just different from others…it’s also different from itself.
Indeed, in an age where identitarianism is proving so popular, it seems somehow appropriate to introduce a pod device that caters not just for multiple personalities, but also multiple moods, multiple outfits, multiple venues, multiple occasions…in fact a multiplicity of multiples.
Enter the Sourin Drop…truly a Pod For All Seasons!
Here at the Vapetrotter Testing Laboratories we’ve been using the ‘ruby red’ variant, and as a result scientists on staff have nicknamed it “The Somewhat Ladybuggish Device”. But depending on the color you choose, it could just as easily resemble a Green Tree Frog, a bar of high-end Mink Oil soap, maybe some never-before-seen Pininfarina™ version of the Millennium Falcon, or even a gadget for warping spacetime and blue-shifting the reflection of your nostrils.
As for actual vaping, this baby really is a star performer…no doubt about that at all. Interestingly, in terms of general performance characteristics, it’s virtually indistinguishable from its Hotwheels inspired sibling – the Vagon. In fact our testing team have estimated that in terms of flavor, vapor production, and throat hit, the two devices are 99.36% identical (with a p-value < 0.001). By the way if you missed our Vagon review it can be found here.
Where the Drop differs most from the Vagon, however, is in its stealth capability. Whereas the Vagon begs to be skidded across the floor in blurring rally-style power slides, the Drop is all about discretion. Its gentle curves, slim profile, and internally hidden led lights make the Drop an ideal choice for those that require more of a concealed-carry type of device. Thanks to its diminutive size it can also be kept hidden from view in the palm of one’s hand during actual field deployment. Members of espionage agencies will no doubt find this to be a useful feature…potentially lifesaving in fact…depending on the situation of course.
In any event, we are huge fans of the Sourin Drop. If you’d like to try one out you can get it direct from the manufacturer here.
- Not hackable
- Street cred may be sub-optimal in the case of certain large-fisted or overtly macho vapers
