KandyPens recently entered the e-cig marketplace with the Feather, now they’re back again with the Rubi ($49.95 directly from KandyPens, use coupon code TVG25 for a 25% sitewide discount). It seems KandyPens is intent on cornering the market even though some of the Best e-cigs around stand in their way.
So what makes the KandyPens Rubi so special? Whereas the Feather is specifically designed for nicotine salts, the Rubi is designed to be used with any e-liquid you want. This is a big deal since so few e-cigs give you that option, with most of them you can only use the pre-filled pods they provide.
But you don’t just get more e-juice choices, you also get KandyPens slick style as well. To find out what else you get from this e-cigarette, check out the rest of the KandyPens Rubi review for all the kit, performance, and design details.
E-cigs tend to have pretty basic kits and the KandyPens Rubi is no different, here’s what’s inside it:
- KandyPens Rubi
- 1 mL refillable Rubi pod
- micro-USB cable
You’ll have to find your own e-liquid of course, I recommend Element e-liquids. They have a wide variety of flavors and types, including the latest hotness, nicotine salts. They’re a great way to break in your Rubi.
The big deal is the refillable pod of course, but there are some other features that’ll catch your attention, let’s take a look:
- Compatible w/ a variety of e-liquids
- 1 mL Rubi pod can be filled w/ any e-liquid you want
- Draw activated, no power button needed
- Micro-USB cable can be easily replaced
- Completely leak proof
- Retails for $49.95 directly from KandyPens, discounts Available
The KandyPens Rubi is four inches tall, slightly taller than other e-cigs but still really small of course. It has a smooth, rounded design that’s rather elegant. The mouthpiece feels comfortable and it’s easy to remove when you need to refill the Rubi pod. Refilling is pretty easy but you have to be precise to avoid spills. You just twist the rubber stopper on the Rubi pod and pull on its wings to remove it when it’s time for a refill.
The only problem I have with the design is that there isn’t a window or portal to monitor the level of e-liquid. You have to remove the mouthpiece to check or wait till the flavor goes off. Neither is an ideal solution but this isn’t a huge problem, it’s just an inconvenience.
I expected a lot from the KandyPens Rubi and it didn’t let me down. This e-cig hit the jackpot no matter what kind of e-liquid I was using. I tried it with nicotine salts and with e-juices of varying VG/PG ratios and got full flavor and voluminous vapor every time.
The Rubi pod uses a ceramic coil lined with Japanese cotton and, aside from providing excellent flavor, it’s pretty durable. I used the Rubi a lot without any performance decline, so it’s unlikely that the mouthpiece will need frequent replacing. The leak proof design works too, I didn’t get any spit back or dry hits the entire time I used it.
Draw resistance is nice and smooth and it works great whether you’re using MTL (mouth to lung) or DLI (direct lung inhale) techniques. This is one of the more versatile e-cigs I’ve used so far.
