Ipha Zing Pod System
The Zing Pod System by iPHA is the follow-up to their moderately popular Swis System. The all-new Zing is a tiny, ultra-portable vape kit designed specifically for stealth vaping at low wattages. In fact, this tiny device only puts out a maximum of 10W. On the other hand, it also utilizes sub-ohm coils to provide a little bit more “oomph” in your hits. Sound interesting? Let’s hear from the critics!

The iPHA Zing is an interesting device and the reviewers had kind of a lot to say, despite it being a simple ultra-portable vape. Let’s begin, as we always do, with the list of cons.
The primary issue with this vape is the tiny size of its battery. You only get a 350mAh battery, which is hardly going to last half the day, especially given the sub-ohm coils it uses. While battery size can often be overlooked in higher power devices, the Zing is clearly meant to be a portable, travel-friendly device. Short battery life significantly limits your ability to travel with this guy, making the 350mAh battery kind of an issue.
As for the cartridges, only one is included with the package, which is kind of a bummer. As a rule of thumb, packages like this should always include at least two pods. The pods are also heavily tinted, making it quite difficult to visually check the level of your e-juice. Not the end of the world, but definitely a point of concern for at least a couple of our reviewers. Finally, the airflow is a bit looser than one might like. According to at least one reviewer, the airflow makes this device entirely unfit for MTL vaping, although this point may be up to your own personal preference and experience.
On to the list of pros! The pods have absolutely zero issues with leaking, which is great for a small pod system which is going to spend a lot of time in your pocket. It’s also got an auto-draw setup, which is almost necessary for a device of this size. The vape it provides is pretty solid, by all accounts, with decent flavor and a relatively tight draw, given some of the extremely loose MTL vapes we’re seeing on the market lately.
At the end of the day, the iPHA Zing is an ultra-portable pod system. It pretty much does what you need it do, and does it about as well as most standard pod systems out there. It’s not quite on par with the Uwell Caliburn, which seems to be the standard of the day, but it’s better than a Juul. If you’re looking for a nice inexpensive pod system, you could do a whole lot worse.
