Vaptio C-Flat Pod System Review
Greetings, vaper. We’re back with another vape review. Today, I will be reviewing another pod system *sad trombone* - haha! Just kidding! I know you love those pod systems so much, otherwise why would they be selling so damn much. Personally, I think the one I’m about to crack open is a stinker, but I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover (or a vape by its specs). Actually, you can. 350mAh of battery power? What is that, like twelve puffs before you need to recharge? Hmm. I guess we’ll have to find out how this little buddy fares under the microscope. Don’t get your wallet out, though.
I will give this a spin and give you my honest thoughts. Afterwards, I will compile a list of pros and cons that I will gather from other expert reviewers. I hope this list gives you a quick synopsis of what makes this pod system good or bad.

Packaging & Mod:
Time to unpack this little guy. Wow, I get a spare! That’s great. Can’t wait to not use it. Kudos to Vaptio for that, though. This looks like a pod system but not quite your regular cigalike. Also, it doesn’t resemble a Caliburn or a JUUL in the aesthetics department. It looks more like a bullet. You take off the drip tip and you have this tiny little tank shaped like a miniature flask. And then, there’s the mod.
The fire button is located at the center of the mod. In your regular standard pod system fashion. There’s a light at the very bottom indicating battery charge level. The mod features 350mAh of rechargeable battery power, by the way. Why are you leaving? Come back! Okay, okay, I’m joking. It’s not that bad.
I read somewhere that described the C-Flat’s mouthpiece as “duckbill shaped” Ain’t that cute? I wish I could keep a duckbill as a pet. Anyways, the mouthpiece is surprisingly comfortable and form-fitting. The vape juice reservoir holds up to 1.5mL of e-liquid. Pretty standard for a pod system, I must say. The atomizer offers a 1.0ohm resistance. There’s really not much else to say about it.
As I puff on this Vaptio C-Flat, it begins to grow on me. It’s very pleasant to hold and the vapor rolls nicely into my cynic gullet. It’s portable and pocketable, that’s for damn sure, and it doesn’t have that odd look most cigalikes have. You know what I mean? That plasticky tube look I don’t particularly enjoy. As a former smoker myself, I started with Blu cigs (don’t judge me). So, I can’t deny the efficacy of pod systems like this when it comes to helping those wanting to quit traditional cigarettes.
Speaking of which, this pod is touted as terrific for nic salt vaping. I can’t vouch for that at the moment, unfortunately. The device starts with five clicks to turn on and five clicks to turn off. You simply hit the fire button to vape. It’s that simple.
Frankly, I enjoyed the flavor and the stealthy airflow. It does provide a proper cigalike experience and if you’re aiming for that, this is not a bad choice - especially considering the price point. No doubt, a much better option than a JUUL or similar.
Overall, I think this is an okay device. Don’t heed my earlier words, especially coming from someone who loves the Caliburn with a fanatical admiration. It is a pocketable pod system that is cheap and sturdy, you can stealth vape if you desire, or puff decent clouds if you pull hard enough. This is not my favorite pod system but just because it operates like every other pod system, it doesn’t mean it’s not worthy of a tryout.
I’d say give a whirl if you have the money to spare.
Pros & Cons:
Now that you have my thoughts out in the open, in plain sight, here is also a collection (a gathering of sorts) of pros and cons. It’s a collective consensus from other popular experts. This way, I hope you can study at a quick glance what is good and bad about this device that will help you make a choice whether or not to purchase it. If something I’m reviewing sucks, I’ll tell you, but that doesn’t mean everybody agrees with me. This includes you.
