If there’s one thing I can appreciate is the broad array of products available for smokers, either current or former. Broadly defined as “tobacco harm reduction”, each product available – be it an e-cigarette, heat-not-burn or snus (nicotine pouches) – offers something far better to the consumer than those in public health and tobacco control ever could. Each of the alternative products is fun. That’s the whole point.
It doesn’t seem so long ago that there were just two or three Heat not Burn devices on the market. That made it a bit tricky to keep you informed and entertained with product reviews, to say the least. Things started to change around last February, though – I think that was when the first Chinese device that uses Philip Morris’s HEETs reached me. Since then we’ve had quite a few – nothing like the variety of e-cigs that’s available, but still pretty respectable. Here is the latest to arrive at HnB Towers, the UWOO Y1 from Uwootech.
Uwell have been around a while and have made several different tanks and mods. Famous, mostly, for the Crown tank that produces an incredible amount of flavour (and cloudage), they have turned their attentions to pod vaping. They have three pod mods but I’m looking at the one that I, initially, thought was just a gimmick.
