The Empire Enquirer – Melo 300, Smok & More!

Welcome to the the first edition of The Crown News, your Empire made resource for news in the vaping community and Empire Vape Shop updates!



New Device Alert!

Meet the Melo 300 tank from Eleaf!

          This tank is taking the subohm tank scene by storm, offering a stock, sub-ohm coil capable of 300 watts! Not only can this tank take the power, its pricing is hard to beat ($34.99 at your local Empire shop). While offering 5 packs of replacement coils for pricing at the same price a 3 pack of the TFV8 coils it can also utilize those same coils! They also made the filling port bigger to accommodate for the glass droppers and the twist caps found on many new e-juice bottles. I would most certainly suggest putting a vape band around that big glass enclosure. I’m pretty certain that this top-fill, with a 6.5 mL juice capacity will be a crowd favorite!


The Public Speaks!

“What is your favorite flavor?”


New Flavor Alert!

X-Rated by Excision


         So most of the time when you hear the name Excision, loud womps and hard drops is what comes to mind. In the last couple of months the dubstep artist has created a line of e-liquid! Most recently the Empire shops have received the X-Rated flavor from their line, it is a tart blueberry yogurt whipped up with other wild berries. I had the chance to try this juice at our Bangor location and it is definitely a great blueberry flavor! If you are a fan of fruity, creamy flavors this is definitely worth picking up, $24.99 for a 60mL at your local Empire!


Smok, Masters of Change?

         If you’ve been to a vape shop, you have probably seen a Smok product for sale on their shelf. Smok has been in the game for a long time! They were founded in 2010 and have made incredible leaps and bounds in the vaping industry. Most recently they have made available regulated mods and tanks that have vapor production similar to an RDA and mechanical mods. What this has done is allow someone who wants to experience the cloud chasers lifestyle without having to deal with the mess of dripping, and all the upkeep that comes with building coils and wicking. They were the first to utilize the dual coil cartomizer back in 2011, making a huge leap in vapor production and flavor enjoyment.   

       The latest products from this ever changing company is the TFV12, a tank that can handle upwards of 300 watts of power, and the GX350, a regulated, four battery powered mod that can push 350 watts of power! Smok just seems to be coming out with bigger and more powerful devices. Some jest that they will probably come out with a “TFV32”  that will be 5 inches tall and take 600 watts.

     At this rate I’m not sure if other companies are going to be able to keep up, the way Smok has been  producing new, more powerful and innovative designs is astounding. The future looks very cloudy with this company! I am excited to see what products Smok will come out with next!
