Zeus eJuice is a brand of eLiquid none of us have ever tried before this review. We knew nothing about the company, or the flavor profiles, or even their reputation in the vape community. A Facebook reader highly recommended them, and asked us to do a review, so we said we would. After the review we all agreed that this was some of the best advice we’ve received. Zeus eJuice is the purveyor of some of the sweetest flavors we’ve had, and we had a ball spending 4 days vaping nothing but their eJuice. Now that we’ve had time to get to know this vendor, and their Greek-themed flavors, we think you’ll enjoy this review almost as much as we did doing the review. We have a lot to cover, so sit back, relax, have a vape, and enjoy….
Please note* – Because of Vegas Fest the Interview portion of this review will not publish today. Hopefully we’ll have that for you next week. Our apologies.
On with the show!
“We seek out only the finest ingredients for our eJuices and we feel what sets us apart is not only our use of the best flavorings on the market for our eLiquid, but how much of those flavorings we use. We mix our eLiquid flavors to produce the best flavor. Rest assured knowing that when you purchase our eLiquid the VG and PG are 100% USP Food grade kosher and your nicotine is 99.9% pure pharmaceutical grade.”
The words above come from the Zeus eJuice website and while nearly all eLiquid creators today we do not doubt the 100% USP Food grade claims. As for flavorings and flavor, the majority of Zeus eJuice flavors we reviewed were full of flavor, and all but a couple were very sweet. If you prefer your eLiquids non-sweet then this brand is probably not for you. If, however, you enjoy a sweet vape you might have found your nirvana with this brand.
The eLiquids in this review are:
- Poseidon’s Poison
- Banana Milkshake
- Zeus Juice
- Aphrodite’s Affair
- Zeus RY4
- Medusa Juice
- Pomona’s Pear
- Khinoe’s Kooler
- Demeter’s Harvest
- 10. Gorilla Booze
PG/VG ratio is 60/40 – Nicotine is 1.8% (18mg) and 1.2% (12mg) Born August 30th, 2013 – Zeus eJuice was generous with their products, providing the flavors in both 12mg and 18mg nicotine. At the end of the review there was virtually no eLiquids left.
Options – Zeus eJuice is available is 12ML, 30ML and 50ML plastic bottles with a thin needle nose tip, making it very easy to fill any cartomizer, clearomizer or tank. 12ML bottles are $5.99, 30ML are $14.99 and 50ML bottles are $23.99. PG/VG options range from 60/40 (The House Blend) to 100% VG all the way down to 90% PG and 10% VG. Whatever your preferred ratio chances are you’ll find it with Zeus. Nicotine strengths are .6%, 1.2%, 1.8%, 2.4%, and 3.0%. The Spinfuel eLiquid Review Team vaped both 1.2% and 1.8% nicotine strengths eLiquids in our review. As would be expected the throat hit from 1.2% to 1.8% was substantial.
eJuice Characteristics – Zeus uses VG and PG that are 100% USP Food grade kosher and nicotine that is 99.9% pure pharmaceutical grade, as stated above.
All the eJuice in the Zeus eJuice lineup have been created by Zeus and most are named after Greek Mythology. Our understanding is that months were spent developing these blends, resulting in intense flavor, loads of vapor, and particularly good throat hits, especially with the 1.8% nicotine strength, but even the 1.2% strength enjoyed a decent throat hit. All the Greek-named Zeus flavors have a similar base taste, which was sweet, bordering on the ‘too sweet’ (but never exceeding it), and each one delivered a unique flavor. As you will see, there wasn’t a bad one in the bunch.
Viscosity – All ten (10) eLiquid flavors were on the thin side, causing no issues in any of the devices we used in our review. Cartomizers filled quickly and easily, clearomizers burned clean and thorough, and after 96 hours of vaping all atomizers remained in fine working order, though the cartomizers lasted about 3 refills before they became unusable. You won’t see any problems with any flavor in our review no matter what hardware you use for your personal vaping

Scoring – As usual a 1 to 5 star rating system was used in this review. The highest score an eLiquid can receive is 5 stars. Any eLiquid that is rated 5 stars by each member of the 5-person team is awarded a Spinfuel Choice Award for eLiquid excellence and artistry. Flavor, vapor, throat hit, satisfaction, complexity, and other factors play a part in each of the members score. Taste is subjective, which is why we present the impressions of 5 individuals.
1 Star – Unvapeable
2 Stars – Vapable, but unpleasant taste, little vapor, no throat hit.
3 Stars – Not a bad flavor, certainly worth vaping, but wouldn’t buy it
4 Stars – A good flavor, delivering nice flavor, vapor, throat hit, might buy it, might not. Recommended.
5 Stars – OMG what a terrific eJuice! Excellent flavor, satisfying vapor, enjoyable throat hit, would definitely buy again, highly recommended.
5 people + 5 Stars = “You can’t lose with this eLiquid, unless the base flavor is one you don’t like. Example: Banana Milkshake – 5×5 – We loved it, but Vapers who dislike banana flavors are advised to stay away”.
Zeus eJuice – The Company Speaks
From Alan Hartman – Owner of Zeus e-Juice – “We started this eJuice company for a couple reasons. The main reason is because as Vapers, we found it hard to find high quality eLiquid that was really flavorful. Many eLiquid flavors we tried we felt were lacking in the flavor strength department. You’ll find many companies offer an “extra flavor shot” as an option when you purchase them, and some even charge for it. Why? Make flavorful eJuice in the first place we say.
The second reason is that most e-liquid stores don’t offer a wide selection of pg/vg blends, if any selection at all. Many just offer one PG/VG blend ratio, and most don’t even tell you what it is. Why? Because its easier, cheaper, and faster to produce and sell, not because the Vapers of today don’t want a variety.
So in order to get the robust eJuice flavors we were looking for, we started mixing our own eLiquid. Friends and fellow Vapers tried some of our recipes and were impressed, and started asking us to make eLiquid for them. And the business grew from there. We’re still a very small family owned business that takes pride in what we do.
Our mission here at Zeus E-Juice is simple: To provide customers with the highest quality, most flavorful eLiquid at reasonable prices. We seek out only the finest ingredients for our eJuice and we feel what sets us apart is not only our use of the best flavorings on the market, but how much of those flavorings we use.
Rest assured knowing that when you purchase our eLiquid that you’re receiving the highest quality ingredients on the market. The VG and PG we use is 100% USP Pharmaceutical grade, and the nicotine is 99.9% pure pharmaceutical grade also. The FDA deems all of the ingredients in our products generally safe for human consumption. As a family owned and managed business, Zeus E-Juice is committed to, and truly cares, about you, our customers. We only sell what we enjoy vaping ourselves and stand 100% committed behind each and every eLiquid.
We are always striving to craft the most flavorful eJuice on the market, and would love to hear your opinions. Not everyone’s taste buds are the same, so if you have a comment or request let us know.”
