Today we’re taking a look at a brand new range from Beco in the form of the OSENS M disposable vapes.
Beco Vape is an E-cigarette brand specialising in premium quality disposable and closed pod systems.
That last one has already been reviewed here, so go on! Stick your beak in and go check it out.
For those outside the UK and EU regions there’s also the likes of the Plush and Luxe. The Beco Slim has also had some TLC here at Ecigclick.
Beco have responded to current concerns over recycling with their latest disposable offerings. Let’s see what they’ve done, shall we?
What Can We Expect From the Beco OSENS M Disposable Vapes?
They’re once again focusing attention on UK and EU regions with this new TPD compliant disposable.
.. Although I’d like to know how they came up with the name. If anything, it’s as memorable as the Beco Beak. So I guess it’s all good marketing. The mini instruction manual refers to the full title of OSENS M Petal.
So now I really am confused! lol
The First In the Series
This is being classed as the first disposable to feature in the OSENS M line so I’ll be keeping an eye out on future releases. They tell us it’s designed to deliver a multi sensory experience with its sleek and modern appearance.
A 400mAh integrated battery powers the 1.4ohm 304 grade Stainless Steel Mesh coil and four individual ports mean wicking is enhanced by anything up to 21%. (That’s a very precise percentage, right there).
An innovative ‘V’ shaped mouthpiece alters the airflow intake on the inhale to ensure evenly distributed vapour production alongside accurate flavour representation.
It’s crystal clear yet none of the E-liquid is visible. I guess we’ll just have to put up with unsightly lip gunk, food particles and condensate. (Graphic enough for ya?)
To combat the ongoing threat to our environment, Beco have constructed the OSENS M entirely from Aluminium. For easier deconstruction during the recycling process.
As much as it feels like we’re really making headway now with this area of concern there’s still the little matter of Plastic sealing bags and Rubber stoppers. We’re not there just yet.
So being TPD compliant we get 2ml of E-liquid and the salt nicotine levels are capped at 20mg. Ideal for the heavier smoker struggling to ditch the cigs.
The battery capacity and E-liquid level means we should be looking at a disposable capable of anything up to 600 puffs. We’ll soon find out.
The Beco OSENS M disposable is good to go straight out of the blister bag and auto draw is on standby as the method to vape. Expect a half decent MTL vape, provided by a small pin hole on the base.
There’s a total of 10 flavours to choose from encompassing fruits, dessert and menthol.
- Dimensions: 16.5 x 104.5mm
- Battery capacity: 400mAh
- E-liquid capacity: 2ml
- E-liquid ratio: 50VG/50PG
- Nicotine strength: 20mg (2%) salt nicotine
- Coil: SS 304 mesh 1.4ohm
- Number of puffs: Up to 600
- Activation: Auto draw
It’s time to check out the Beco OLSEN M disposable vapes. We’re looking for flavour quality and consistency, vapour production, MTL replication, battery performance and of course that all important number of puffs.
Because these are quite new I had difficulty gleaning any flavour descriptions from t’internet so I’m going in blindfolded. Sometimes that’s the best way.
No surprises with this one and Beco have played it safe this time.
It’s the usual powdery Orange variety similar in taste to a Vending Machine drink. In other words it’s very artificial in output. That doesn’t necessarily make it a bad vape, though.
There’s more than enough flavour and it remains consistent throughout exhale. Plus it doesn’t leave a sickly sweet aftertaste either so that’s another bonus.
I don’t know what it is but these kind of vapes always leave me feeling thirsty. They just don’t act as a thirst quencher for me and that kind of goes against what the intention is with a drinks based profile.
I wouldn’t say there’s anything particularly chalky about the flavour. I think the Koolada kind of knocks that aspect out of the vape park.
If you’re not too fussed about what to expect from an Orange style vape, be my guest. Give it a look. It’s a no nonsense, simple single flavour that’ll probably suit the new or casual vaper.
Mmm. Not quite sure what to make of this one. It’s more like a cross between Bubblegum and a soft fruit sweet.
It certainly doesn’t remind me of Marshmallow although there is that obligatory sweetness thrown in. There’s still plenty of flavour but it’s definitely a hybrid style of blending.
I don’t think the Koolada is helping things at all. It erodes any sensation of experiencing a Marshmallow style vape.
If anything, it’s more like a Cotton Candy (Candyfloss) taste. There’s trace elements of Strawberry here and they do invade the after taste enough to be recognisable.
So of you like your sweet vapes and a fusion of Bubblegum and Candy Floss, Marshmallow might be one worth considering. If you plan on purchasing it for what it’s supposed to taste like, you might want to think again.
This is a mixed berry vape I’ve been waiting for. Why? Because it delivers on its promise.
I wasn’t expecting to receive such an explosion of flavours on the way out but they’re there and in sharp clarity to boot!
Raspberry, Blueberry and Black Cherry are all thrown into this particular vape pot and they mix and blend fantastically.
And what I appreciate the most is a lack of acridity I often find when dark fruits are combined in this fashion. We still get the sweetness, tartness and a degree of sourness but without any of the off putting values so often found with the aftertaste.
So fair play to Beco.
Again the cooling aspects of the vape are held in check, never taking a foothold on the flavour experience. They’re pitched just right because they enhance what is already a very pleasant overall taste.
A sweetness and juiciness combine to create a really mouth-watering fusion of fruity flavours.
Ok, none of the fruits are particularly natural tasting but they’re still very moreish and very tasty. That’s Mixed Berries in a nutshell. Or pip – depending on your stance.
And now for something completely different. It’s times like this I wish I had a flavour description to work with! Apparently it’s all the rage over in Taiwan.
Beco have done their best to replicate this milky flavour, right down to the bitterness oft associated by ‘the accumulation of hydrophobic amino acids’.
.. I’m glad I quoted that. Was sounding far too intelligent for a moment there!
My take is that this is a funky, sour tasting milk. One that’s about to turn – for the worse!
I guess it’s not all bad. The inhale is smooth enough and the vape never reaches the stage of curdling but by Jove – It’s very close.
So I’m stuck between the rock and a hard place with Papaya Milk. On the one hand it makes a change to experience some bitterness over sweetness. On the other hand, I’m not particularly enamoured with what occurs on the exhale.
And was there really any need to amplify the effect with excessive Koolada? It never really falls together for me but top marks to Beco for giving us something different to experience.
Don’t often get that with disposable vapes.
Passion Fruit Lychee
I really don’t get much in the way of Passionfruit although there does seem to be enough tartness pulling through on the exhale. That tartness is heavily influenced by sweeter elements that refuse to abate. Even after the vape.
It’s not something I enjoy very much. It lines the inner area of the mouth around the sides of the tongue and creates a stickiness. Some might call it overkill.
The general flavour I get is from the Lychee and even here, is underplayed. It’s still a pleasant enough taste but just doesn’t have enough punch in my opinion.
The cooling properties of the vape are extremely well produced, never suffocating the vape experience and never creating that stinging effect I often describe with disposables.
So I give Beco full credit on that score but the general feeling is that there’s just too much sweetness and not enough clarity of flavour in general. Hence there’s not really much to enjoy in terms of the aftertaste, either.
This one produces a very clean taste on the exhale. Quite impressive, actually.
The inhale is silky smooth and the Menthol is pitched to a perfect level. It retains a pleasant crispness on the inhale and presents itself very consistently on the way out.
It does stick to the palate for a long period but that’s exactly what I would expect from this flavour profile. And there’s a minty quality to keep things interesting along the way.
Premium Menthol is a very refreshing and uplifting vape. Ideal as either a palate cleanser or a pick me up after a night on the tiles.
So consistency of flavour is great and vapour production is equally as satisfying.
It’s an all seasons vape but particularly effective for long, hot Summer days when you need a bit of a cooling down. Ex Menthol cig smokers are going to love this one!
It does exactly what it’s supposed to do and is therefore faultless, in my opinion.
Battery Performance and Number of Puffs
I got a cracking 11 hours use from the disposables. That’s incredible for a 400mAh battery.
So taking my vaping habits into account and average number of puffs per hour I estimate somewhere in the region of 800 puffs. An awesome performance, well above suggested figures.
Flavour was consistent throughout and I didn’t experience any spit back or dry hits. Not even as the battery reached the end of its lifespan.
Flavour, Vapour Production & Airflow Restriction
Flavour was consistently good – with every vape. It wasn’t concentrated or intense. The fruits were all clean tasting even if they weren’t particularly realistic.
Even the sweetness had more of an effect, working with the flavour as opposed to overwhelming it.
Vapour production was good too. Suitably stealthy, just what I’d expect from a standard disposable. It gets the job done especially if you’re used to the smoke from a tailor made cigarette.
The MTL vaping experience was good but not the best I’ve experienced from a disposable.
I was still able to restrictive lung hit on these without discomfort. So if I’m being picky airflow could be a tad tighter.
But the majority of vapour does get trapped by the mouth prior to inhaling so again, no real complaints really.
Final Review Verdict
Design and build quality deserves a special mention.
The Beco OSENS M vapes are probably the best looking disposables I’ve seen for quite a while.
The design and build quality is second to none. The sleek, Aluminium material has a clean, smooth and polished appearance that really sets it apart from the majority of mass produced disposables.
I’d even go as far as to say it’s a work of art, right down to the chrome effect company logo and other associated text requirements.
The icing on the vape cake are the flavour colour coded stoppers inserted below the mouthpiece. The colour radiates out, hitting the transparent tip almost holographically.
I dig it. A lot!
Yes, as I mentioned earlier you will still get condensate build up inside that clear mouthpiece but that has to be offset by what is fantastic overall design and build quality.
I’m not going to nit-pick. The Beco OSENS M gets a straight ten on that score.
Some flavours were great, some were OK and one was completely new to me. So something of a mixed bag as far as sampling was concerned but there’s one thing we can be assured of.
Consistency. And you get that right to the very last vape.
