Element liquids & Binary liquids, a tasty in-between

What’s up vapers! SirRisc here with a juicy treat!

It’s been a long time since I’ve reviewed some liquids, so let’s have a go at this.
On todays menu are Zen and Key Lime Cookie from Element Liquids, and Byte from Binary Liquids!

These were all sent out from Ecigarettedirect.co.uk.


Premise.

Ecigarettedirect.co.uk might be better known for their blogposts recently, as they’ve been very actively following up on the new regulations in Europe.
James, one of the publishers on their blog and also responsible for several extremely informative Reddit posts, recently told me they would be stocking Element Liquids and Binary Liquids.
Both liquid ranges that are made in the good ol’ US of A.
Of course I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to try a few…

So how do they taste?
Let’s find out, shall we!

The review.

All the liquids were tested in

  • Steamcrave Aromamizer RDTA V2, dual clapton (26/32) coil at 0.44ohm wicked with Koh Gen Do
  • Smok TF-RDTA, dual fused clapton (28/34) coil at 0.28ohm wicked with Koh Gen Do
  • Dotmod Petri V2, dual tiger (26/0.8*0.2) coil at 0.31ohm wicked with Koh Gen Do

As always these were put on different mods, including but not limited to, Smok H-Priv, Hohmtech Hohmwrecker G2, Innokin Coolfire TC18650…
Wattage ranged from 60W to 125W, depending on what I felt like that day.
Each juice was tested for about a day as my all-day-vape.


Binary Liquids - Byte

Ingredients: 2.5mg/ml nicotine, PG 26 / VG 74

Test results can be found here.

Description on the website:

Not your typical cereal flavoured e-liquid! Byte is a complex mix of breakfast treats with crunch berry cereal, fruit loops and milk.

My review:

Scent: Cereal with a soft citrus note

Color: Clear with a yellow hue

Taste: Most cereal liquids go for the standard citrus fruity loops profile, where the citrus notes are overpowering the rest of the profile.
Byte is different in that regard, the citrus fruity loops note is there but it’s more subtle. The cereal itself is clearly present with a smooth citrus note just peeking through on the inhale.
The exhale is a sweet blend of lemon and cereal notes combined to form a soft tasting profile that lingers only slightly.
I’ve found that this makes the liquid a lot easier on the olfactory as an all-day-vape.

  • Flavor: 8/10
  • Vapor: 9/10

Element Liquids - Key Lime Cookie

Ingredients: 3mg/ml nicotine, PG 20 / VG 80

Test results can be found here.

Description on the website:

Melt-in-your-mouth buttery cookies brightened with the sweet yet tangy citrus flavor of world famous Floridian Key Limes.

My review:

Scent: Sharp lemon with sweet notes

Color: Murky with a slightly yellowish hue

Taste: I love key lime pie, I can’t resist the stuff. Unfortunately I have yet to find a confectioner that does it right, so I have to make it myself if I want some.
Given that I’m a bit of a danger in the kitchen, I don’t eat key lime pie often.
That little titbit aside, there is a way to have the taste without having to bake a pie. That way is to vape it.
And the Element Dripper Series does a very nice job of emulating the real thing.
While the name says cookie, it does taste more like pie to me.
The inhale is an slightly overpowered lemon lime with a very zesty accent, the cookie or pie comes slightly after that when you keep the vapor in your olfactory for a second.
The exhale is a smooth yet satisfying zest of lemon lime and lingers for a minute or two.
Overall the flavorprofile is rather sweet and I’ve found that the juice does gunk up coils a bit quicker than usual, which leads me to believe there is some sweetener in the recipe.

  • Flavor: 8/10
  • Vapor: 9/10

Element Liquids - Zen

Ingredients: 3mg/ml nicotine, PG 20 / VG 80

Test results can be found here

Description on the website:

An exotic, stress-relieving fusion of lychee, guava and sweet peach with passionflower.

My review:

Scent: Tropical notes of guava and lychee

Color: Clear with a very light brownish hue

Taste: The name says it all for this juice, Zen is a smooth and relaxing recipe of tropical flavors that akes to be vaped on a beach with soft breeze and the sound of the waves rolling in.
It’s this feeling that I love to get from a liquid, the sensation of being transported to another place.
The combination of guava and lychee is one that seems to be naturally induced, with the passionflower rounding off the entirety of the profile.
The inhale is a smooth exotic blend of passionfruit and lychee, while the guava slowly pokes its way through.
The exhale is only slightly different in the sense that the guava pierces through a bit more, though none of the separate flavors try to dominate the profile.
Zen is by far my favorite of these three liquids, and not just because it reminds me of a tropical beach. The flavorprofile is well balanced, and perfectly executed.

  • Flavor: 9.5/10
  • Vapor: 9/10

In conclusion.

I had heard of the Element series before but never bothered to check them out until recently. What I heard was mostly positive and it seems to be justified.
Zen was a sure way to get me to shut up for several minutes (which I’ve been told is not an easy thing to do). Key Lime Cookie has a more pie-like profile to me, but your mileage may vary.
After all, taste is subjective and everyone is free to form their own opinion.
The Binary lineup was new to me, but I instantly fell for the aesthetic of the brand. The light green bottles, the references to geekculture, the typeface used… it all fits the theme well.

In closing I would like to thank Ecigarettedirect.co.uk for sending out these liquids!
Thanks for reading, join me next time as I take a look at the Smok H-Priv! 220W of fancy vaping power!

Your review is meticulous and inspired (photography). Love the paint-on-glass labels on Byte. Only thing better is the bent tip droppers used by Element. I must posses~!

Great review and on point with regards the key lime, which is a great tasting liquid, but like all Elements juices they quickly gunk up your coils! the saving note is those droppers! been trying to source them for ages to no avail!!!
Hvent tried the Zen but will try it out and then try to recreate it as I do like the tropical fruit tastes!!!
