Sili Box x RIPE Disposable Vape Review

Sili Box x Ripe: Turbo Powered Disposable

The Sili Box Turbo Hit 6000 is a unique device in the world of disposable vapes. Even with modern disposable vapes often requiring a recharge to extract every puff, simplicity is still the main selling point and there is nary a button in sight. Draw-activation is the industry standard but the Sili Box now has a Turbo Boost button that can amp up vapor production. 

Sili x Ripe Turbo Boost

Obviously, the Sili x Ripe does not have a forced induction device that is powered by exhaust gases to increase the power and efficiency of an internal combustion engine. That would be madness. 

In Sili Bar's defense, creative liberties have been taken with the concept of "Turbo" for at least 40 years.  A Turbo Boost could not power an anemic 1982 Pontiac Firebird across great chasms, turn any obstacle into a ramp, and allow a T-Top coupe to plow through cinderblock walls. And it is never a good idea to race a train. That never stopped Michael Knight from hammering the turbo boost button in KITT. 

Turbo Boost

Turbo Boost on the Sili Box x Ripe describes a button that increases the power being sent from the battery to the atomizer coil, which increases vapor production and flavor density. Expect Sili Box users to follow Mr. Hasselhoff's lead and lean in on the surprisingly impressive Turbo Boost function. 

Sili Box x Ripe Disposable Specs

Turbo Boost will cut into battery life and the overall puff count a bit but a Sili Box will serve up a significantly stronger puff with the Turbo button depressed. This feature is a step forward in performance. It is almost like some vapers would like a few features and complications on even utilitarian disposable vapes.

The popularity of disposable vapes can be traced to ease of use, reliability, flavor, and satisfaction. While refillable pod kits may provide some real savings, the convenience of just opening a packaging and puffing away appeals to many vapers. The most popular products in the Mi-Pod disposable vapes collection fall under these narrow design parameters. 

Most cutting-edge disposable vapes have adopted a similar approach. Combine a rechargeable battery that lasts a day or so with an e-liquid capacity that can last a week. This approach reduces waste, as before this innovation the longest lasting disposable vapes required 1000mAh batteries to make it through 5-7ml of salt nic juice at the most.

And when the battery ran low of devices that could not be recharged, any remaining e-liquid essentially remained captive as puff quality plummeted. A rechargeable disposable can always fire at the height of its power provided the battery is topped off. Advances in coil designs provide enough durability to deliver excellent flavor until near the bottom of the juice reservoir.

Apart from the Turbo button, the Sili Box fits right in with its naturally aspirated rivals. It features the obligatory pastel colors, is about 3 inches tall and shaped like a rectangle. The small mouthpiece is standard, ergonomic, and appropriately sized for a small device that functions as an MTL vape.

Powered by a USB-C rechargeable 600mAh battery, it is ready for daily use. The e-liquid capacity is 16ml, which is good for an estimated 6000 puffs. Despite the use of a turbo button increase the power, there is no adjustable airflow. Nor is it really required as it is a well-calibrated disposable vape. The mesh coil delivers as advertised, with excellent vapor production and flavor. There was no major drop-off in flavor after a week of hard vaping.

Sili Box x Ripe Collection

This is not the first time that a disposable manufacturer has wheeled out an “x RIPE” or Ripe Collection. Esco Bar Disposables are especially well-known for the Ripe x Esco Bar Mega and other tasty disposable collections like X Fruitia as well. How will the Sili Box x Ripe Collection, augmented by turbo power, fare in comparison to such a historically popular disposable?


Banana Berry Smoothie Sili Box x Ripe Disposable Vape Turbo

Banana Berry Smoothie Sili Bar x RIPE

A mix of berry flavors and with banana notes are well-grounded and accurate. A medium level of icy coolness does not bury the flavors. There are notes of fruit confection flavors as well, but the sweetness does not overwhelm in the Banana Berry Smoothie Sili Box X Ripe


Berry Strawberry Sili Box x Ripe Disposable Vape Turbo

Berry Strawberry Sili X Ripe

There are flavors here that taste just like strawberry and the addition of a berry medley flavor really fill out the overall experience. With an almost jammy flavor, the ice level is excellent and not overwhelming. The Berry Strawberry Sili Box x Ripe is a flavor that really benefits from the turbo boost.


Kiwi Dragon Berry Sili Box x Ripe Disposable Vape Turbo

kiwi strawberry sili box

It is listed first and kiwi is the dominant flavor. Dragon fruit adds tropical fruit notes, and a big punch of berries at the end rounds out a very balanced fruit inspired disposable vape. Kiwi Dragon Berry Sili Bar is a flavor that works well naturally aspirated or with a blast of turbo boost power. 


Melon Burst Sili Box x Ripe Disposable Vape Turbo

Melon Burst Sili Box X Ripe Disposable Vape Turbo

Honeydew melon and cantaloupe notes deliver a predictable salt nic juice classic flavor. A strong kick of ice helps balance out the fruit flavors and make this disposable pop. The underlying flavors in the Melon Burst Sili Box x Ripe are not buried but enhanced, especially when you crank up the power with over 5 bars of Turbo Boost power like a 1986 Formula 1 car. 

Vanilla Creme Sili x Ripe Disposable Vape Turbo

Vanilla Creme Sili Box x Ripe

The Vanilla Creme Sili x Ripe is a dessert flavored disposable with smooth custard inspired notes and great vanilla flavors. An heir and also a greatly improved version of the old Juul Creme Brulee flavor, the smoothness and sweetness are fused perfectly. 




The Competition

As great as the Sili Box x Ripe is, there is some pretty heavy competition in this space. The addition of the turbo boost helps it stand out, despite the typical staid shape and pastel color themes. If none of the Sili Box collection flavors catch your eye, here are couple great Sili Box x Ripe Alternatives

Flonq Max Disposable Vape

Flonq Max

The Flonq Max is a sleek and mature looking disposable with refined flavors and reliable performance. Kicking out an honest 6000 puffs, don't be deterred by 35mg nicotine strength. Manufacturers are recalibrating the conversion rate, with a lot of customer education required, and future disposables will start to be listed at 40mg strength. The Flonq Max Disposable Vape Collection has something for every adult vaper. 

Flonq Max Specs

Especially strong are the Flonq flavors. They have the fruit and confection classics like Blue Lemonade, a delightful blue raspberry flavor, and Strawberry Watermelon, but there are also some unique ones like Strawberry Milk and Milk Chocolate

UT Bar Disposable Vape

Currently the UT Bar Collection is an Arizona exclusive, the heir apparent to the outstanding Flum Pebble and Flum Float is the bold UT Bar. Hopefully, this will change soon enough. Chilly and sweet flavors abound, perfectly balanced for all-day vaping. Colorful, durable, and flavorful, you can expect ample satisfaction from this sleeper hit of the Southwest.

Lost Vape Orion Bar Disposable Vapes

Surging in popularity, the Orion Bar Disposable Vape Collection packs a mean flavor punch into a stout and sturdy MTL vape. They offer both the classic Orion Bar 7500 and the outstanding Orion Bar OB5500. Both deliver long-lasting disposable vape performance.  


Funky Republic Ti7000

Funky Republic Ti7000

The Funky Republic Collection features a large and a small disposable vape. The heavyweight is the Funky Republic Ti7000 and the smaller Funky Republic Fi3000 delivers flavor packed performance in a vape that does not require charging. 

Lost Mary OS5000 Disposable Vape

Lost Mary OS5000

Not exactly going out on the limb with these next two. The Lost Mary OS5000 might be the champion of disposable vapes at the moment. Reliable, great flavors, long-lasting and satisfying performance, it has everything an MTL adult vaper who prefers salt nic juice seeks. The Lost Mary Collection is absolutely laden with superb flavors. 

EB Create BC5000

EB Create BC5000

If rating disposables boiled down to cache and name recognition, under its former name the EB Create BC5000 would certainly be the undisputed category leader. Now that the name has changed, and its specifications appear detuned because of changes in measurement conversion tables, the EB Create appear to not hold such an unassailable position. 

Wrong! The same great flavors and performance are still present in the EB Disposable Vapes collection. The nicotine strength is the same, it was just measured differently before. Same with the e-liquid capacity. Overall, the EB Create BC5000 has all the same attributes that adult vapers loved in the original Elf Bar. The only difference is the name plate and how the specs are determined. 

Final Thoughts

The Turbo Boost Sili Box is not a gimmick. It delivers a real increase in vapor and flavor production. For vapers raised on devices with more complications, wattage, and temperature controls for example, it will be a basic feature and a bit of a throwback.

For anyone whose vaping journey has never advanced beyond disposables, the appearance of turbo buttons, juice monitors and battery indicators is proof that ergonomic and reasonable features can be incorporated in a disposable without losing the ease of use advantage.
