Captain Vapour Organic Blueberry Cream E-Liquid:
There is a definite love of strawberries here at Captain Vapour, we then had a DIY special request for something non-strawberry. This got me thinking and I delved into my box to find three different Blueberry premium brands in the hold. After a good testing session, the best was blended into a creamy vanilla custard base to produce a brew that is nothing short of exceptional! Week one had full noise of Blueberry, week two saw the blueberry pulled back after some client feedback. Then I sent the final brew back to full noise, bringing the perfect balance of Blueberry to the completed flavour. Now fully endorsed by our locals clients at the Motueka Market too! Thanks team Tasman vape enthusiasts. 🙂
A select few Captain Vapour Motueka market supporters are always spoilt with newly crafted Captain Vapour E-Liquid brew while at the final stages of testing and tweaking. Be sure to pop down if you can!
The best premium blueberry flavour out there, matched with Captain Vapour’s infamous cream and vanilla custard base, delivering a fully endorsed all day vape in an organic VG mix. Captain Vapour Blueberry Cream E-Liquid is becoming one of our most popular E-Liquids in our store.
Made in Motueka NZ, from premium FDA approved and NZ ingredients.
**The organic VG content in the bottle is around 70%, while we could go 100% organic, but the organic blueberry flavours don’t quite hit the mark we are looking for, so decided on the Organic VG only in the mix and went full flavour and noise!
Captain Vapour’s Organic Blueberry Cream is available in 10ml, 30ml or 60ml Bottles.

Kangertech Vaporizer Reviews: June 2017
Kangertech Five 6 Review:
Captain Vapour was lucky enough to get the first Kangertech Five6 AKD’s in New Zealand, thanks Kangertech! I have thoroughly tested this Kangertech Five6 Vape over the past three weeks and I’m very happy with this advanced vape unit, and our clients too, have also responded with amazing feedback.
The Kangertech Five6 comes in five colours: black, red, yellow, green and cyan blue. The MOD casing can be changed out for different colours, and Captain Vapour will be stocking these for all your colour moods!
The unit is huge, the flavour is huge and its innovative multiple ohm choice coils and tank are great for changing up its vapour delivery for use at different times of the day. Have Kangertech gone to far with this huge vaporizer? Yes they have, it drinks heaps of juice and it’s vapour delivery is unbelievable, so it’s approved!
The Captain’s sweet spot for day-to-day use is 120W on two coils tuned down to 100W. Perfect! After a few jars, go full bore and go 150W. Huge!!! The coil lasted three weeks with more left in the bag for my use. I would expect a two week life, though I have been on other vapes too.
The unit cannot be charged by itself, and quite rightly so, as five x 3000mAh batteries just won’t charge on a USB cable. I can see why Kangertech did not allow charging directly on the MOD, and if you are going this extreme you not only need to be safe, but also need a dedicated outboard 18650 battery charger. We did our research and decided on supporting this device with the top-of-the-line Efest BLU6, bluetooth six bay battery charger, which also has a cool phone app!
All up the initial investment is just over $250 with unit, charger batteries, extra coils and E-Liquid. But if you want something extreme, is easy to setup, that delivers as good as most of the DIY kits out there, I would highly recommend the Kangertech Five6 AKD Vape. If you need any more information on this device, please feel free to drop us a line.
Kangertech K-Pin Review:
Again, Kangertech privileged us with early units. These are being very well received by intermediate vape clients who need a good punch in a small form factor unit. I have thoroughly tested the Kangertech K-Pin Vape kit over the first two weeks and pleasantly surprised from its output. The experience from this vape unit is excellent, producing vape & flavour levels that compare to what other intermediate-to-advanced level vaporizers can achieve. Its size/ delivery ratio is perfect, and they look great in all the bright colours. Kangertech have nailed it with this beginner-to-intermediate vape kit.
KANGERTECH SSOCC K-PIN COILS
The supplied 2 x 0.2ohm SS coils are how this unit should be used to me. Next up is testing on a 0.5hm SS, then a 1.2ohm MTL coil. More to follow in the upcoming weeks.
KANGER K-PIN TANK
The Kangertech K-Pin comes with Kanger’s own design especially for this unit, the Kanger K-Pin tank, with runs with their SSOCC coils. The coils can be changed from the bottom of the tank and untwists at the top to fill with e-liquid. The tank also can come off the battery to allow for the monthly clean up/ change of flavours. The airflow is non adjustable, but Kanger have got a good spot for Direct Lung while some may find as a first starter vape a bit different from a cigarette. E-cigarette are different to smoking analogue cigarettes. This would help you adapt much quicker, and you’ll be in the world of flavour enjoyment immediately!
KANGER K-PIN MOUTHPIECE
The plastic mouthpiece is definitely mouth to lung with its wider size, this works perfectly with the wider air flow setting for the unit. I do like the twist top to bring the mouthpiece out and back in making the unit slightly more compact when not in use.
KANGER K-PIN BATTERY
The battery is a well thought out size, and a thorough day’s use testing saw it drop from 5 LEDS to 2 LEDs – so lasts all day. Kangertech have thought it through and placed the USB Charging slot on the side so the unit can be charged upright.
CAPTAIN VAPOUR FINAL VERDICT
The Kangertech K-Pin Vape works really well as a low NIC direct-to-lung inhale vape, and its size for experience output is amazing. If you are new to vaping I would go with a 6mg Liquid level and the 0.2 SS Coils, otherwise go for 12mg level with a 0.5ohm SS/NiCr or a 1.2ohm SSOCC NiCr Coil.
Starter device – I would say this is an intermediate level device as it doesn’t quite perform as an entry level MTL. I would recommend coming down to the market and check this is right for you if you can.
First reactions and testing for new vapers has been good. The perfect step up from the low level newsagent one you bought that time!
For someone wanting to change up and try direct to lung vaping without all the hassle of building coils, wonder the best menu/ wattage setting, and the worry of loose batteries, this is a perfect choice. Push the button and it dials up to perfection!
Captain Vapour stocks the full range of Kangertech coils and products. You are fully supported right here.
The Kangertech K-Pin is really good form/ factor/ size for its delivery, and the Kanger K-Pin vape is a win from Captain Vapour. We expect this to perform well in our line up for with its excellent price. Kangertech have raised the bar again.
