Behind this name is hidden Vape Forward, one of the biggest vaping product companies in the US, the same that is marketing the high-end box VaporFlask. Designed as a USB stick, Cync is a closed system that shares similarities with the Juul. The US vaping market is currently being bullied by the new FDA rules and it is in this context that the manufacturer imagined a concept that would more easily get the Agency’s marketing approval in order to “facilitate smokers’ transition from smoking to vaping”.

The Cync, declined in three versions

  • micro battery of 19 mm with a capacity of 200 mAh,
  • standard battery, longer with a capacity of 380 mAh,
  • stealth battery, box format that complies with a 1.5 ml or a 2.5 ml pod.

Great reputation juices but still expensive

The Cync also keeps the concept of sealed cartridges used by the Juul, called here “Refill Pods“, pre-filled to 1.5 or 2.5 ml with e-liquid. Compared to other Cigalikes, Cync marks its difference by offering a choice of e-liquids manufactured by renown brands: Beard Vape, Five PawnsCuttwood, Space Jam or Cosmic Fog, for example. They propose 68 references in 6, 12, 18, 24 and 36 mg/ml nicotine strength.

The good news for the user of the Cync is, when compared to Big Tobacco e-liquids, that he knows what liquid he gets with these brands.

The starter kit includes a 380 mAh battery, a 1.5 ml pod and a USB cable, is sold $17.99. In revenge, purchasing refill pods might be expensive since four 2.5 ml pods cost $17.99. Even if the Cync is much less greedy in e-liquid than a mod, it remains expensive with time.

To reach the EU market, Vape Forward might have to adjust the nicotine strengths of its starter packs that currently contain 24 or 45 mg/ml, high than the EU TPD’s limit of 20 mg/ml.

    Stupid EU, they understand nothing about nicotine consumption through vape.

    Great information provided here. Very brief and straight to the point, unlike most writers. I wonder how many more of these “closed-system” vape devices are being currently designed &/or manufactured as I write this? This is very troubling to me. As a vaper, I feel making these type of devices like Cync is a business move further away from the entire culture of vaping and increasing the nicotine percentage is greatly irresponsible. Then again, it might be blatantly increased to reduce the true flavor of the eliquids. All the big name eliquids that will be offered with this device will not even taste like they should, since higher nicotine levels greatly decreases the preferred flavoring. Therefore, these devices will taste more like traditional tobacco cigarettes, only helpful for beginners, which I do not oppose since switching off tobacco-smokes is a cornerstone to nicotine-vaping, yet the beginners represent a small percentage of vapers due to the fact that most seasoned veteran vapers prefer an “open-tank” device where they, themselves (very adult-like), add the eliquid which usually does not exceed 0.3% nicotine. Most vapers will vape 3mg of nicotine due to the flavor that accompanies the lower nicotine. Literally, you’re favorite 3mg ejuice will taste much different in a 6mg version. Are these businesses selling out or buying in? Let’s hope there is a behind-the-curtains, well-thought-out strategy involved which is intended to create more vapers, attracting the beginners rather than the veteran vaper. However, what does the veteran do in the meantime? Sit back and watch our number of vapers increase to a point where we have so many supporters around the world, that we can then be able to battle the “big-money” forces who wish to rid the world of vaping. If that is somehow their strategy, then they’re genius (applause), but perhaps we should do something to help keep the number of current vapers we still have – our veteran vape enthusiasts who will never begin to taste eliquid pods containing 45mg of nicotine, that’s overkill. Once again, selling out? or buying in?

    @Tony i just bought one today, got the 12mg nicotine and it’s not enough. it doesn’t hit near as harsh as a regular ecig so increased nicotine is needed to get the throat tingle and satisfy the craving. in my opinion
