Callumn WinterDisposable Vapes Leave a Comment


Today we’re taking a look at one of Puffmi’s latest disposable vapes; the ROCK 12000!

We’ve had the pleasure of reviewing several Puffmi disposables in the past (MeshBox Mini, Dura 9000 and C800) and all have featured impressive designs, performance and incredible flavors!

Now boasting the highest e-juice capacity of any Puffmi device (16ml) and a smart LED display with e-juice and battery level indicators, the ROCK 12000 looks to raise the bar again!

The ROCK 12000 not only boasts a 16ml e-juice capacity and color display but also looks to improve on flavor and vapor production with its new dual mesh and dual-core design. This new setup promises a greater consistency of flavor and an even greater number of puffs!

And along with a 12,000 puff capacity the ROCK disposable also comes with a 650mAh rechargeable battery that should provide around 2 full days of vaping. And as if that wasn’t enough, it also comes in a range of 20 delicious sounding flavors!

But how well does it perform? Will it satisfy the flavor chasers among us? And perhaps most importantly, will it actually deliver 12,000 puffs?

Join us as we answer all that and more! Be warned however, as a non TPD compliant disposable you won’t be able to purchase the ROCK 12000 in the UK or EU regions.

I’d like to quickly thank Celly at Puffmi Vape for sending me the ROCK 12000 disposables to review. As always, this review is completely unbiased and only contains my honest opinions on the product.

What’s in the Box?


Puffmi ROCK 12000 - What's in the Box?

The Puffmi ROCK 12000 comes packaged in a shiny metallic looking box with a ton of information printed on the front and back.

However, as you can see from the picture above the information printed on the box is in an entirely different language! At first I was under the impression that we’d just received a version of the packaging intended for another country, but a quick look on Puffmi’s official site shows images with the same language on the boxing.

This of course makes it extremely difficult to confirm exactly what the box tells you! What I can say however is that the box confirms the number of puffs, the 20mg nicotine strength and the 650mAh rechargeable battery capacity.

There are also several warnings plastered across the box that translate well enough despite the language barrier. Finally there’s also a handy QR/scratch code that lets you check the disposable you’ve purchased is the real deal.

Once you remove your ROCK 12000 from the box though you’ll find it enclosed in a foil wrapper with the Puffmi logo printed across the front. Simply tear open this wrapper and remove the ROCK 12000.

After this you’ll have to remove the silicone bung that blocks the mouthpiece and peel off the sticker covering the airflow and USB charge port. After that you’re ready to start vaping!

Puffmi ROCK 12000 | Design and Appearance


As with all the Puffmi disposables we’ve reviewed over the past year, the ROCK 12000 is a compact and lightweight device. Measuring in at 82mm in height, 48mm in width and just 22mm in depth, the ROCK 12000 fits easily in the palm of the hand and feels comfortable to hold and carry.

While it’s not quite as dinky as the Puffmi MeshBox Mini we reviewed a few months back, it firmly fits within the compact category. The fact Puffmi have managed to cram 16ml of e-juice and a 650mAh rechargeable battery within this tiny frame is testament to the skill of their design team!

On top of that the ROCK 12000 weighs just 70g making in extremely lightweight and portable. I regularly carried around all 3 of the samples we were sent and barely noticed them sitting in my pocket.

This light weight is also helped in part by the Polycarbonate construction which results in a robust yet light device, built to stand up against any knocks and drops.

On top of this the ROCK 12000 is comfortable to hold due to the raised industrial mechanical design embossed across the front of the body. Across one half of the front you’ll see (and feel!) the Puffmi name with the other half featuring the name of the device and the flavor inside.

It’s a really interesting design choice that certainly helps the ROCK 12000 stand out from the crowd! On top of that the raised design helps you to grip the ROCK 12000 making it that little bit easier to use on the go.

On the reverse side of the ROCK 12000 it’s completely smooth with the exception of an indented Puffmi logo. In keeping with the industrial style design the ROCK 12000’s metallic matte colors also glisten and catch the eye!

Across the 20 available flavors there are 8 different colors with each ROCK 12000 having a single color that corresponds with the flavor inside. For example, the Blueberry Raspberry flavor comes in a dark blue to give you an immediate indication of the flavor inside.

Aesthetically it’s easily one of the more interesting designs I’ve seen on a disposable vape this year and something I think will suit a large spectrum of vapers. Whether you’re a fifty something corporate type or a twenty something student, the ROCK 12000 wouldn’t look out of place.

When it comes to vaping the ROCK 12000 the design is also aimed at being user-friendly and super simple to use. As a draw-activated device with a set power output there are no buttons or adjustments to be made in terms of wattage.

To activate the coil you simply draw on the mouthpiece. The auto-draw feature worked flawlessly across all 3 of the ROCK 12000s I tested and it only takes the lightest of draws to activate.

In terms of the airflow it’s a reasonably tight mouth-to-lung (MTL) draw that nicely mimics the sensation of smoking a cigarette, ideal if you’re just making the switch to vaping (something I think disposables are great for!).

Unfortunately though there’s no variable airflow meaning those who prefer a more airy direct-to-lung (DTL) draw might be disappointed. For me though the airflow was spot on and gave a nice, satisfying draw.

What the ROCK 12000 does have however is a smart color LED display with both e-juice and battery level indicators. It’s located on the bottom right of the front side and features two ‘wheels’ with 6 segments a piece.

The e-juice and battery icons are different colors but the exact color of each depends on the flavor you’re vaping. As the e-juice and battery levels drain segments of the icons gradually extinguish to give you a quick and easy indication of how much you’ve got left.

For me this was a standout feature on the ROCK 12000 and something we’re thankfully seeing more and more often! I can’t overstate how frustrating it is to leave the house and get five minutes down the road, only to find your vape is out of battery and/or juice.

With a display that lights up every time you puff you have a very good idea of exactly how much is left in the tank.

Below the display on the bottom of the device you’ll find the Type-C USB charge port (0.5A) that’s used to recharge the device when it runs out of battery. As to be expected with any disposable vape there’s no included charge cable, but any appropriate Type-C charging lead will do.

Fortunately the ROCK 12000 also features pass-through charging. This means when you have the device on charge you can still take a puff, super handy if you only have the one disposable!

On the top of the body there’s a medium-sized duckbill style mouthpiece with a narrow oval opening in the center. It’s color coded to match the rest of the body but completely transparent and protrudes 16mm above the rest of the device.

The duckbill mouthpiece is slightly smaller than I’ve seen on several other recent disposables, but I actually preferred it! It’s just large enough to allow for a great purchase with the lips and nicely compliments a MTL draw style.

In terms of shape the overall body has a rectangular design with smooth curved corners and bevelled edges to help with grip. Combined with the raised design on the front it’s really comfortable to hold and fits perfectly in the hand.

While the raised design and compact body does make it easier to hold, I still managed to drop one of the samples we were sent! I did notice some minor scuffing to the body but luckily no change or drop in performance.

Although scuffs or damage to the body can be frustrating it’s worth remembering it is a disposable device. As you’ll be discarding it once the e-juice is vaped, external damage isn’t really much of a factor. What’s far more important is how well the device stands up to knocks and drops in terms of performance. In this regard the ROCK 12000 performed admirably!

Puffmi ROCK 12000 - Design and Appearance 7

Overall I was really impressed with the design and appearance of the ROCK 12000! For me the standout feature was the smart LED display. This is such a useful feature to have on a disposable vape and completely eliminates any worries you typically have about running out of battery and/or e-juice while on the go! With the ROCK 12000 a quick draw on the mouthpiece will instantly tell you how much you’ve got left.

On top of that I loved the raised industrial design and metallic colors that glisten in the light. When you also consider the impressive 16ml e-juice capacity and the large 650mAh battery (more on this later!) the Puffmi ROCK 12000 becomes a real contender!

The only minor drawback I could find was the lack of adjustable airflow. With that being said, the reasonably tight MTL draw was ideal for me and provided a really satisfying draw.

Puffmi ROCK 12000 | Performance


When it comes to performance things are just as positive. The first thing to talk about is the overall lifespan and number of puffs the ROCK 12000 delivers. I’m happy to report that true to its name, each of the ROCK disposables I tested provided almost 12,000 puffs (give or take a little).

While it’s really tricky to count the exact number of puffs you receive on a device like this, I know from past experience I take around 500-600 puffs per day. With all 3 of the ROCK 12000s lasting between the 17-19 day mark, I can say with some degree of certainty they provide almost 12,000 puffs.

Now the mathematicians out there may have already crunched the numbers and might be thinking my math is a little off….and they’d be right! If I were taking 500 puffs per day the ROCK 12000 disposable that lasted for 17 days would only have provided around 8,500 puffs.

But equally, If I were taking 600 puffs per day that same device would have provided 10,200 puffs. But, isn’t that still some way off the quoted 12,000 puff mark? The short answer is of course yes, but it’s definitely worth remembering that the number of puffs you receive is heavily dependent on your vaping style.

Puffmi ROCK 12000 - Performance 1

As someone who takes long, slow draws I’m bound to receive a lower number of total puffs than a vaper who takes short, sharp draws. What’s more important to me is the overall number of days a disposable lasts for.

As an extremely heavy vaper a 17-19 day lifespan for a single disposable is amazing! While I take around 600 puffs a day, a light vaper could reasonably take only 250 puffs a day, perhaps even less. If we work on the assumption of only 250 draws a day, the ROCK 12000 could last for over 40 days!

This not only makes the ROCK 12000 an extremely convenient device to use, but also an amazingly cost effective way of getting your fix!

Puffmi ROCK 12000 - Performance 2

In terms of battery performance I was also really impressed. The 650mAh internal rechargeable battery gave me around one and a half to two full days of vaping in between charges.

This means you can take the ROCK 12000 out with you for the day, even a full weekend, without really needing to worry about running out of battery at the worst possible time.

When the battery does run out of power the battery icon on the smart LED display flashes 10 times in quick succession. After plugging in a USB-C cable the LED stays permanently lit and provides a running commentary of the current charge, until the battery reaches 100%. All told this takes just under an hour.

Puffmi ROCK 12000 - Performance 3

Like I mentioned earlier, the inclusion of pass-through charging is also fantastic! If you only use one disposable at a time, there’s nothing more frustrating than running out of battery and having to wait an hour before you can take another puff.

With the ROCK 12000 you can keep puffing away while you’re waiting for the battery to fully charge. It’s not something I often see on a disposable vape but it’s a super handy feature to have!

Another thing I loved about the ROCK 12000 was the excellent vapor and flavor production. The dual mesh coil certainly does a good job and I received zero burnt hits across any of the 3 I tested. The consistency of flavor was also excellent with each final puff tasting almost as good as the first.

Vapor production is also on par with other similar disposables and dense enough to match the kind of vapor you’d receive from most traditional mod and tank setups. While you won’t be winning any cloud chasing competitions, you certainly won’t be disappointed. Even a short puff produces a satisfying amount of thick, white vapor!

Puffmi ROCK 12000 - Performance 4

In terms of throat hit and nicotine delivery the ROCK 12000 also performed really well! We received the 20mg nicotine strength version and for me it was just right. I’ve vaped many 50mg strength disposables over the past couple of years and sometimes they’re just a little too strong!

With the ROCK 12000 the 20mg strength provides a nice, satisfying hit that works well to stem any cravings. I’d be interested to see what the 50mg strength vapes like but I’d take an educated guess that it may be on the strong side. Possibly best reserved for only the heaviest of smokers looking to make the switch.

Like I mentioned previously the auto-draw function also worked perfectly across all 3 of the ROCK 12000s I tested. The response is super sensitive and it only takes the lightest of draws to activate the coil. In the past I’ve experienced disposables that mis-fire when the auto-draw sensor gets gummed up with e-juice and thankfully this didn’t happen once when testing the ROCK 12000s.

It’s also worth mentioning I didn’t experience any e-juice leaking issues during my time testing them, not so much as a single drop. While these days most disposables are generally leak proof, I’ve still had several leak e-juice on me in the past.

There’s nothing worse that having e-juice ruin your favorite item of clothing, or worse still splutter into your mouth. In this regard the ROCK 12000 performed flawlessly!

Puffmi ROCK 12000 - Performance 5

Overall I was really impressed with the performance of the Puffmi ROCK 12000! The lifespan of each individual device is excellent and the vapor and flavor production from the dual mesh coil is superb!

Add to that a reasonably good battery life, a satisfying throat hit and a fairly quick recharge time of just one hour and the ROCK 12000 has plenty going for it! For me the performance of the smart LED display and the inclusion of pass-through charging was the cherry on top!

Puffmi ROCK 12000 | Flavors


Puffmi ROCK 12000 - Flavors

Another compelling reason to try the Puffmi ROCK 12000 is the varied, 20 strong flavor range. For me, flavor is probably the biggest consideration when choosing a disposable vape and I had high hopes for the ROCK 12000 based on previous Puffmi vapes I’ve tried.

While we only received 3 of the flavors from the range (Cool Mint, Blueberry Raspberry and Triple Mango) it’s clear from only a few puffs on each how much effort and time has gone into creating tasty blends bursting with flavor!

The complete list of flavors is:

  • Watermelon Ice
  • Fresh Mint
  • Double Apple
  • Sakura Grapes
  • Sour Pineapple
  • Cool Mint
  • Bubble Gum
  • Cotton Cloud
  • Orange Soda
  • Watermelon Blackcurrant
  • Gummy Bears
  • Strawberry Energy
  • Blueberry Raspberry
  • Pineapple Lemonade
  • Triple Mango
  • Mango Oolong
  • Ruby Red Grapefruit
  • Strawberry Yogurt Ice
  • Rosey Fruits
  • Juicy Shisha

As you can see there are some really varied and delicious sounding flavors in the range. Personally I’m looking forward to trying the Pineapple Lemonade and Cotton Cloud. The Juicy Shisha also sounds intriguing!

We were lucky enough to receive 3 flavors though and while taste is incredibly subjective, I’ll do my best to describe each below:

Blueberry Raspberry


Puffmi ROCK 12000 - Blueberry Raspberry

I’m a sucker for a good blueberry vape and Puffmi’s Blueberry Raspberry is no different! With each draw you’re treated to the juicy richness of blueberries, seamlessly intertwining with the bold, tart notes of raspberry.

It’s a dynamic duo that strikes a perfect balance, offering a harmonious blend of sweet and tangy with every puff. This one is easily an all-day vape for me and one I found hard to put down!

Cool Mint


Puffmi ROCK 12000 - Cool Mint

For me minty flavors can sometimes verge on being a little boring. That’s not to say I don’t like vaping them…I’d just never personally opt for a mint based flavor over some of the more fruity and dessert based blends in a range.

With Puffmi’s Cool Mint I was pleasantly surprised though! It’s got a great crisp taste that works really well to cleanse the palette and the ice factor is nice and subtle. I’ve tried countless flavors in the past that are totally let down by an overpowering ice but Puffmi’s Cool Mint strikes a perfect balance! Not one I’d personally buy myself but definitely an enjoyable flavor.

Triple Mango


Puffmi ROCK 12000 - Triple Mango

Saving the best for last, the Triple Mango is packed full of flavor and a real treat for the tastebuds! This flavor takes mango mania to a whole new level, blending not one, not two, but three layers of luscious mango goodness!

With each inhale the succulent sweetness of ripe mangoes explodes in the mouth, followed by a tropical twist that deepens the flavor profile. The triple play of mango creates a multi-dimensional vaping experience that’s both refreshing and indulgent. Easily an all-day vape for me and one I can’t wait to taste again!


Having sampled just 3 of the available 20 flavors I can’t wait to try some more in the range! Each of the 3 I tried were rich in flavor and blended just right. As ever the Puffmi flavors continue to be a standout feature and a key reason to try their disposable range.

Puffmi ROCK 12000 | Price


As a brand new release, the Puffmi ROCK 12000 is currently a bit of a challenge to track down in many stores. However, given its outstanding design, performance, and flavor variety, I’d expect this to change in the very near future!

While there’s no official price guidance from the guys and girls at Puffmi, I’d comfortably shell out around $20 for one of these disposables. When you factor in the generous number of puffs it offers, this pricing makes the Puffmi ROCK 12000 an incredibly budget-friendly choice for a satisfying vape experience.

This kind of cost also pales in comparison to the price you’d pay for cigarettes or even single day disposables like the popular 600 puff Elf Bar.

Puffmi ROCK 12000 | Verdict


Overall I was really impressed with the ROCK 12000 and it becomes the latest in a long time of fantastic disposables from Puffmi!
