Think Vape Finder DNA250 Review

Think Vape Finder DNA250 Review

You may know of Think Vape from the likes of the Panzer, Box 133 or Finder 75 box mods, all equipped with Evolv DNA chips. Well they are now back with their latest offering called the Think Vape Finder 250. Holding up to the tradition, it is also powered by the Evolv DNA 250 chip and sports three 18650 batteries enabling the mod to reach the chips full potential of 250 watts.

 

What’s in the box

  • 1x Think Vape Finder 250w TC Box Mod with Evolv DNA 250 Chip
  • 1x English User Manual
  • 1x USB Cable

 

Out of the box

Arriving in a simple black cardboard box, the Finder 250 was securely held inside with a foam insert. This is definitely enough protection to ensure the mod does not get damaged in transit and will arrive to you safely. Not much else was included in the box, being a comprehensive manual (that actually does makes sense for once) and a USB cable.

Looking at the mod initially it definitely resembles the triangular structure of the Lost Vape Triade and the Reuleaux 200S. As well as the triangular design, it also sports a leather battery door, which was made popular by Think Vape. This makes me wonder if these companies are one and the same, maybe something we will never find out. I do think the Finder 250 does look a lot better than the aforementioned mods, due to unique intricacies such as the grilled top section and centered 510 stainless connection plate.

The screen is recessed into the face of the Finder 250 between hexagonal shaped fire and selection buttons. Below this, on the face, sits a micro USB port for charging purposes along with firmware updates and Escribe connection. The bottom of the mod contains ample small venting holes, which should give the chip enough air to operate accordingly. The leather battery door feels really nice to the touch and is easily removed to insert the three 1860 batteries it requires to operate.

The display offers all of the information you need including Voltage, Resistance, Wattage, Amps, Battery Life and Temperature (when TC mode is engaged). It advises if resistance lock is activated and will tell you if you are in a locked mode, which locked mode you are currently in. If you do not like the layout or the information provided by default, you always have the option to customize the screen layout via the Escribe software, to which you need a PC to make that happen. The Escribe software is still unavailable for MAC users, which is obviously a subjective con to some.

In direct comparison to the Reuleaux RX200S, the Finder 250 sits a little taller at 89mm and a little narrower at 49.5mm. There isn’t much difference, however it seems like a lot when you actually hold it in comparison. The Finder 250 is definitely a lot more comfortable to hold and ergonomically superior in my book. You wouldn’t think so just to look at them side by side, however the Finder 250 wins out in my book for sure.

Usage

To install the batteries on the Finder 250, you need to remove the battery door. It’s held in by magnets and can be a bit of a fiddle to get the right grip on it. Once the door is removed, the battery bay is exposed and the battery orientation information is displayed clearly for each cell. There is a ribbon attached to the back of the battery bay that you place behind the batteries, which aids in taking out the batteries when it’s time to charge. Please remember to use a married set of batteries in the Finder 250 and you can brush up on our article on battery safety here.

The menu system its not complicated at all and quite easy to use for those that have used box mods before. One thing to keep in mind is that the DNA mods do not fully turn off. They can be locked or have the batteries removed, however when the batteries are installed the mod remains in a state of sleep only. This honestly took me a while to get my head around, as I like to shut my mod off fully before storing it in my vape pouch or pocket. But as long as it is locked, there is no fear of mis-firing when you don’t it want to.

Five clicks on the fire button will lock or unlock the Finder 250. To lock the power, make sure the device is unlocked and hold down the plus and minus adjustment buttons. To lock and unlock the Resistance, make sure the device is locked and hold down the fire button and the plus adjustment button simultaneously. To put the device into Stealth Mode, make sure the device is locked and hold down the fire button and the minus adjustment button simultaneously.

To change the temperature, make sure the device is locked and then hold down the plus and minus buttons simultaneously. The temperature can be adjusted in the menu and you can have it display in either Celsius or Fahrenheit or switch it off completely. To access the presets, make sure the device is unlocked then hold down the plus and minus buttons to access power mode and then double click the plus button. The default device presets include Wattage, Ni200, Ni200 No Preheat, Ni200 Relaxed, SS 316 and Titanium.

I found that all of the preset modes work well without having to dive into customization with Escribe. There seems to be overkill on the Nickel options for my personal liking, I personally never vape Nickel, but again that is a subjective con to the way I like to vape and the coil material I use. Escribe is very straight forward to use and there are plenty of templates/preset options to choose from. And you have the ability to store/customize up to 8 presets.

I usually vape SS316L claptons and it was easy to download a SS316L profile from Steam Engine and upload that into a custom preset. I was then able to select my standard wattage, along with a preheat curve that I desired. The software can record and tell you all types of information about how you vape and your mod, so if you find that interesting feel free to load that up. You can also configure Escribe to tell the Finder 250 what batteries you are using, as to give you an accurate battery meter and help the charging process.

In regards to charging your batteries, it is usually recommended to use an external charger. The DNA 250 board does boast per cell charging at a rate of up to 2A, which I would feel comfortable in charging my batteries if I didn’t have an external charger available. The Finder 250 is going to make sure each cell gets charged in a balanced manner and it also supports pass through functionality so you can vape while the unit is on charge.

Performance

I have to say after using the Finder 250 for a number of weeks now, it has become one of my favorites. The DNA 250 chip does not miss a beat and is very accurate and reliable. I have been rotating some of my favorite tanks and RDA’s on this puppy and I can confirm that reliability and consistency always ring true. I get such a rewarding and satisfying vape from all of them due to the quality of the DNA 250 board. These boards always have the most consistent and accurate ohm reading that I have seen on any of my mods.

Both wattage mode and TC mode work without hesitation. The customizable pre-heat time is a god send especially when working in TC mode and powering some large coil builds. It gets you going instantly once you get your settings right and is so satisfying when you’ve nailed it to just how you like it.

The beauty about this mod is that although it will work for you out of the box, once you get Escribe fired up and customize the Finder 250 to your liking it will keep rewarding you day after day, toke after toke. It can also grow with you as you progress into different builds and materials and keep tweaking the settings to your liking.

Think Vape Finder DNA250 Review

I did the obligatory dry burn test and can confirm that it passed with flying colors, no longer do you have to be scared of getting a dry hit when you least expect it. The big bright screen is a pleasure to read in even the most challenging lighting situations. And the fact that it is more compact and pocket friendly than say an RX200S, I find myself bringing it out of the house and even to work with me replacing my smaller beater mod setups.

It definitely isn’t an every day carry arrangement, however it has its place and that place is constantly growing. The Finder 250 is so comfortable and ergonomic to use and is much easier to get in and out of your pocket than an RX200S.

The Finder 250 didn’t have any trouble firing any RDA or RTA I threw on it, with all types of builds installed. It can handle up to a 28mm atty, with anything less showing some open space around the 510 connection plate. Everything I put on the mod looked really good and the spring loaded 510 connector ensured that there were no gaps present on any one of them.

Battery life is excellent on the Finder 250 which boasts a 97% efficiency rating. Vaping at around 50 watts I was getting around 2 days of vape time before having to think about recharging. Obviously with higher wattages this turn around time will be lessened and I found that TC mode saves some battery life as well.

Wrap Up

With so many options in quality high-powered mods currently available it is always a hard choice to make. The Evolv DNA 250 chip is available in a few mods now and easily proves that it steps above the rest. Granted, they do come with a higher price, but the quality, reliability and consistency definitely pay for themselves before too long.

Keep in mind that it is an investment that you won’t easily or quickly grow out of as you can keep customizing it as you go. You can try out new things and news ways of vaping that you wouldn’t ordinarily be able to do with other non-customizable mods on the market.

The Finder 250 really does tick a lot of boxes and it looks really good as well. Think Vape have done stellar job on presenting the DNA 250 board and have honored this with excellent build quality, ergonomics and aesthetics. With only one major con that I have established, this isn’t even really to do with the Finder 250 itself, it’s more to do with the DNA chip on board and not having the support for MAC users, so although it’s not directly aimed at the Finder 250 itself, it comes with the territory of the DNA chip.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Think Vape Finder 250 if you think it can be something that will work for you. You will be as impressed with the mod as I was and will be satisfied for a long time to come. I hope this has helped you in your search for your next vape mod. Let us know if you have any questions or comments below, we always appreciate hearing from you.

Wismec Reuleaux Tinker Review

The Reuleaux Tinker is the newest addition to Wismec’s now famous series of three-battery box mods. It has all the features we’ve comes to expect from modern advanced mods, as well as a new more ergonomic design, but what really sets it apart from other similar vaping devices is its look, which is sure to appeal to “sneaker heads”, especially fans of the old Air Jordan 3.

I myself am not into sneakers at all, so I had to do some research after seeing the basketball player on the box of the Reuleaux Tinker. It turns out that the silver and black pattern used on this mod is the same as, or at least very similar to, the one on the Air Jordan 3 sneakers. Not only that, but the ‘Tinker’ name is apparently a tribute to Tinker Hatfield, the lead designer of several generations of Air Jordan shoes.

A Look at the Contents

The Wismec Reuleaux Tinker kit comes in a large rectangular packaging featuring a picture of the three-battery mod and the included Column mesh tank, as well as a graphic of a basketball player preparing for a slam dunk, the Reuleaux logo and the iconic Air Jordan 3 pattern on the front, and a list of contents, , company information, and an authenticity sticker on the back.

Inside, you’ll find the Reuleaux Tinker and the Column tank packaged in separate branded boxes, which to me indicates that you can also buy these devices separately, if you’re only interested in one of them.

Inside the Reuleaux Tinker box, we have the three-battery mod, a micro-USB cable for charging and a user manual, while the Column packaging contains Wismec’s new mesh tank in the same color as the mod it comes with, a spare mesh coil-head and a box of spares (an extra bubble glass section and some silicone o-rings).

Design and Build Quality

The new Wismec Reuleaux Tinker measures 78mm x 56mm x 44mm and is made primarily out of zinc alloy. It currently comes in only three color combinations – white&grey, red&grey and blue&grey – all of which also feature the black&grey pattern that the Air Jordan 3 sneakers are known for.

This mod needs to accommodate three 18650 batteries, so it’s not the most ergonomic vaping device money can buy, that’s for sure. It’s as stubby as Wismec’s previous three-battery mod, the Reuleaux RX Gen3, but instead of bevelled edges, the Tinker has a more rounded general design, making it easier to hold in  the hand. As I said, it’s still not the most comfortable vape mod, but as far as three-batteries devices go, this is definitely the most ergonomic I’ve ever used.

Starting at the top, we have a classic 510 connection featuring a spring-loaded, gold-plated 510 pin. It looks a lot more solid than the one on the Wismec Predator 228, for example, but it’s not centered. I can see why Wismec decided to place the connection to the side of the mod, as the center area is right on top of the battery compartment and they would have otherwise had to make the mod taller to accommodate the connection, but this really isn’t ideal either. The way the Tinker mod is designed, you can only get away with atomizers up to 25mm in diameter without any overhang. Anything over that, even a 26mm will overhang. Also, as you can see in the photos, the Column tank doesn’t sit flush on the mod. There’s a pretty big gap between them, and even though it prevents you from accidentally scratching the glossy paint when screwing on an atomizer, it doesn’t look very good.

The control panel under the 510 connection consists of a trigger-like fire button which appears to have a texture similar to the sole of a sports shoe, a rectangular color display, two classic ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons, and a micro-USB port near the bottom. The fire button feels nice and solid, and can be pressed on its entire surface, but the display really isn’t very impressive. Yes it’s colored, but it’s rather small compared to other screens we’ve seen recently, like that of the Modefined Draco or even the Smoant Naboo. The resolution isn’t that high either so some of the elements end up looking pixelated. It’s still a colored display though, and it has a pretty nice layout, so I can’t complain too much.

Opposite the control panel, we have a decorative rubberized metal plate that also improves your grip of the device, and on the sides, we have some battery venting slots and that iconic Air Jordan 3 pattern on what feels like a soft, almost leather-like material. As I said, I’m not a big sneaker fan, so this pattern doesn’t really seem all that great to me, but if you’re a sneaker collector, or at least grew up with the Air Jordan 3s, this may mean more to you.

Finally, on the bottom of the Reuleaux Tinker we have a massive hinged battery door, that slides out and flips upwards revealing the three battery bays. To use this device, you’ll need to first loaded up with three 18650 batteries. The battery compartment is kind of cramped and the batteries will touch each other, so make sure the wrapper on them is intact to avoid short-circuits. The battery bays all have clear polarity indicators both on the bottom and on the inside of the battery door, so you basically have to be blind or not paying attention to insert the batteries wrong.

Overall, the Wismec Reuleaux Tinker feels like a very solid device. Yes, it’s bulky and heavy as well, but that’s just the nature of the beast. In terms of build quality, this thing feels high-end. There’s not rattling whatsoever, the paint job and detailing are flawless, and apart from some minor design flaws, there’s really nothing to complain about.

Menu System and Navigation

The Wismec Reuleaux has a classic menu and navigation system, so as long as you’ve used another advanced vape mod before, you should have no problems getting used to it.

The mod turns on automatically after you’ve inserted the three 18650 batteries and closed the battery door, and to turn it off and on again, all you have to do is press the fire button five times in rapid succession. You can then use the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons to adjust the wattage, so you can definitely use this device without even going into the menu.

However, if you want to take advantage of all the features built into the Reuleaux Tinker, just press the fire button three times rapidly to access the menu. There, you’ll find three submenus – Mode, Set, Info – and a ‘back’ option that will take you to the home screen.

In mode, you can choose between Power (wattage), TC (temperature control), TCR and RTC. That last one isn’t really a mode, but a layout for the home screen, which will replace the wattage/temperature with a clock. You can choose between a digital or an analog clock.

In Set (short for settings) you can lock the resistance of your coil (important for TC mode), set the wattage for TC mode, activate Stealth mode (turn off the display), select what subparameter to display on the home screen (puff counter, puff timer or amperage), set the clock, set the duration and intensity of the preheat, and finally, set the timeout of the display.

In Info, you can check the voltage of the three batteries, as well as the versions of the hardware and firmware.

That’s about all there is to talk about here. It’s a very simple menu with an even simpler navigation system, although I will say that I wish it had a custom curves mode as well. But, who knows, maybe Wismec will add that option in a future firmware update.

Battery Life and Performance

Obviously, battery life is one of, if not the greatest strength of the Reuleaux Tinker. It is a three-battery mod after all, so you can definitely expect it to last you at least an entire day. I personally get around a day and a half, on average, using three Sony VTC5A batteries, vaping at around 85W. However, your experience may vary depending on what capacity batteries you are using, set power output and how much you vape. One thing is for sure, though – you can expect the Reuleaux Tinker to last more than any dual-18650 device, or dual 21700 battery mod, for that mater.

Performance-wise, the Tinker is a beast! This thing has an official max. output of 300W, which is kind of insane. Does it really do 300W? Maybe, in certain conditions, but I for one don’t really care about that. The most I vape at is 100W, and that’s only rarely, so anything over 100W doesn’t really matter. But, if you’re into cloud-chasing or just enjoy a smouldering-hot vape, this thing will give you what you need.

I’ve used the Reuleaux Tinker in wattage mode only, as I don’t enjoy temperature control, so I can’t really comment on that, but as far as pure power goes, it’s pretty darn impressive. I don’t know exactly what chip Wismec used for this mod, but what I can tell you is that it fires up the battery almost instantly. The power ramp up is crazy fast as well; you can hear the coil sizzling inside the tank the moment you hit that fire button, and if the innate ramp-up just isn’t good enough for you, you can always set the preheat to whatever intensity and duration you like.

In the 10 days I’ve been using the Reuleaux Tinker for I’ve encountered no major issues, but I did notice  a few of minor problems. First, the mod appears to be reading resistances a little bit off. For example, the coil-heads  for the Column tank are rated at 0.15Ω, but the Tinker seems to think they are both  0.17Ω. However, after screwing the tank onto the Druga Foxy and the VooPoo Vmate, it turned out that they were in fact 0.15Ω  coil-heads. So the Tinker appears to be a bit confused, although I will say that an 0.02Ω difference really isn’t that big of a deal.

The second issue I noticed, and this isn’t so much of a fault as it is an oversight by Wismec, is the 300W default power in temperature control. So the first time you go into that mode, it automatically sets the power to 300W, which doesn’t make any sense. Why not set it to a more reasonable level instead of the max power output?

Lastly, increasing and decreasing the wattage/temperature on the Reuleaux Tinker is really slow, and it’s made even worse by the fact that it doesn’t round-robin. It takes about 30 seconds to go from 1W to 300W, and you then have to spend another 30 seconds lowering the power, because it won’t automatically jump back to the lowest power setting once you reach 300W.

The Tank

The Column tank is a 25mm sub-ohm mesh tank that holds up to 6.5ml of e-liquid. Wismec advertises it as a 28mm tank, which is technically correct, but only if you measure it around the bubble glass section. At the base, this is a 25mm atomizer.

This tank really isn’t all that special. There’s nothing wrong with it, but it doesn’t bring anything new to the table either. It’s just a run-of-the-mill sub-ohm tank featuring single mesh coils. I would say it’s average in terms of both flavor and vapor production, which is exactly what you should expect from a tank bundled up in a kit like this.

The Column features top filling, but keep in mind that it uses one of those push-to-slide types of top-caps, and you’ll have to remove the translucent 810 drip tip in order to access the fill port. That’s a bit weird, to be honest, as I’ve seen this type of top cap on several other tanks in the past, like the Advken Manta RTA or the FreeMax Mesh Pro, but none of them required me to take off the drip tip just to fill them.

The two bottom airflow slots are massive and have stoppers on both sides. Vaping with both slots wide open makes the tank very noisy and the vape way too airy for my taste. Even halfway closed, the slots allow too much air to get in, so I found that at my sweet spot of 85W, keeping the air slots just a quarter open is ideal.

The two coil-heads that come with this tank feature single mesh coils which do a decent job of bringing out the flavor of the e-liquid. They don’t come close to the triple mesh coils of the FreeMax Mesh Pro, but compared to regular wire coils, they are really good. Vapor production depends on what power output you have set on your mod, but at 85W, you can blow some sick clouds.

Conlclusion

The Wismec Reuleaux Tinker isn’t the kind of mod I’d take with me everywhere. It might be more ergonomic than the company’s previous three-battery devices, but it’s still bulkier and heavier than most of the mods I’ve used. That said, it’s nice to have a round the house, if only for the kind of battery life you get out of it. Not having to worry about recharging the batteries for a day and a half or two is great, plus the performance is not too shabby either.

I’m not going to comment on the design of the Reuleaux Tinker or what inspired it, as it doesn’t really interest me, but as far as the quality of the mod itself and its performance, the new Tinker is a worthy addition to the now-famous Reuleaux series.

Overview of the electronic cigarette Joyetech Unimax 25

Introduction

The new device from the company Joyetech – UNIMAX 25 – immediately dubbed the “killer iJust S “. The mod is really very similar to the Eleaf device and has some advantages over it, for example, a more capacious clearomizer. However, a full-fledged “murder” is unlikely to occur, because Eleaf is a subsidiary of Joyetech, and it will not destroy one of the most successful models of the “daughter”. The manufacturer simply provided a choice: iJust S for economical vapers, and UNIMAX 25 for a bit more demanding of design and features.

UNIMAX 25 is a kit starter from a UNIMAX 25 battery pack at 3000 mAh and a 5 ml clearomizer with the same name. The set for beginners is calculated and can serve as the first electronic cigarette for transition from tobacco.

 

In addition to UNIMAX 25, Joyetech also introduced UNIMAX 22 – all the same, but smaller in diameter, the capacity of the clearomizer and the battery, more in length. The main feature of the UNIMAX series devices is the possibility of choosing between the voltage stabilization mode and the mechanical mode.

Appearance

UNIMAX 25 looks quite stylish due to lining made of artificial leather, placed on the sides of the device. Included are spare covers of a different color, so the user will be able to individualize his mod. The clearomizer uses functional and purely decorative o-rings in the color of the device, and the manufacturer puts a colored vape band in the kit, which is unusual for Joyetech – they rarely decorate their fashion so much.

 

There are five device colors to choose from: all black, silver black, silver brown, silver blue and silver red. Additional color is realized just due to the stickers of leather and o-rings. The body is made of stainless steel.

Thanks to leatherette inserts, the device fits well in the hand and does not slip out. Its dimensions are 134.5 x 25.2 mm, so the mod may be suitable for stealthy hovering with some reservations. The build quality of the device is excellent.

Functionality

Unlike most similar devices, UNIMAX 25 can operate in two modes: constant voltage and dynamic. If the voltage regulator is on, the mod will operate at the same power regardless of the battery charge. The specific number of watts depends on the installed evaporator. If the stabilizer is turned off, then the UNIMAX 25 battery will “fry” more when fully charged, and less when the charge drops. 

The maximum power is 50 watts.

Subwoofer

From 0.15 to 3.5 ohms. Due to the diameter of 25.2 mm, modern wide drips and clearomizers are perfect for the battery pack. Devices with a smaller diameter (22 mm) will not look so elegant with UNIMAX 25.

Focus On www.urvapin.com For More Vape Start Kit.

Battery

The UNIMAX 25 has a built-in 3000 mAh battery. This is a good capacity, which will be enough for the whole day, even with a sufficiently active soaring. You can charge the device through the USB-port. Standard charging current – 1 A. The battery will charge in about 4 to 5 hours.

The Fire button in UNIMAX 25 is translucent, so the backlight is clearly visible through it. Depending on the battery charge, the button will light up or flash to indicate that the device is discharging. Also, the backlight shows the selected mode in color: a disabled stabilizer is indicated by white light, and an on stabilizer is indicated by orange.

Connector

Steel 510 connector with brass spring-loaded pin.

Protection

The device has a full set of protection:

  • from short circuit;
  • low / high resistance;
  • overcharge / overdischarge;
  • from evaporator overheating (cutoff at 10th second);
  • air vent to drain gas from the battery.

Clearomizer

Clearomizer UNIMAX 25 meets all modern requirements. It is fully collapsible, has top refueling and the ability to adjust the torque. It is made of stainless steel and Pyrex glass. Capacity – 5 ml.

 

The mouthpiece is the weak point of the clearomizer. The complete drip-type is not inserted into the connector, but is put on top of it. The connector has slots for two protrusions inside the mouthpiece, so you need to rotate the drip-type for fastening. The problem is that it rotates easily, and when soaring and carrying, you can easily lose the complete mouthpiece. But it is quite wide and helps to draw more steam. Drip-type can be replaced by another under 510 connector.

 

UNIMAX 25 operates on the new BFL and BFXL series evaporators. At the time of publication in these lines only one evaporator, each with a spiral of cantal and a resistance of 0.5 Ohms. The BFL series is designed for the best transfer of taste, and BFLX – for more steam. There is also an adapter for the BF series evaporators (not included). With it, you can use the following “heads”: BF Clapton 1.5 Ohm (cantal), BF SS316 0.5, 0.6 and 1 Ohm (stainless steel), and BF NotchCoil 0.25 Ohm (stainless steel). The manufacturer notes that the RBA-base BF RBA because of its size does not fit into the adapter, and therefore, probably the same situation with the evaporators BF QCS Coil and BF LVC Coil.

Control

To turn the device on and off, press the Fire button five times. To switch soaring modes, turn off the mod and hold down the button until it is highlighted in the corresponding color.

Options

  • Dimensions of the mod: 134.5 x 25.2 mm
  • Weight: 156 g
  • Clearomizer capacity: 5 ml

Specifications

  • Connector: 510 connector (spring-loaded brass pin)
  • Battery Capacity: 3000 mAh
  • Supported resistance: 0.15 – 3.5 ohm
  • Maximum power: 50 W
  • Maximum charging current: 1 A
  • Charging time: 4 – 5 hours

Equipment

The mod comes in an elegant configuration:

  • UNIMAX 25 battery pack and UNIMAX 25 atomizer assembly;
  • imitation leather stickers – 2 pcs;
  • BFL Kth 0.5 Ohm evaporator – 2 pcs (one is pre-installed in the clearomizer)
  • spare o-rings;
  • vape band;
  • spare glass;
  • USB cable;
  • instruction;
  • branded packaging.

Feedback and experience of use

New UNIMAX 25 liked vapers. Joyetech did not produce anything like iJust S before this device, except for the eGo AIO series , which was very different in details. The “killers” iJust S from UNIMAX 25 did not work, but the mod is quite worthy of attention.

The main complaint of vapers to the novelty is in the mouthpiece. It scrolls too easily, there are also reports that the connector holds 510 drip types poorly. True, this flaw, most likely, was only in the first models sent to the reviews by the manufacturer. The rest of the UNIMAX 25 is a powerful, autonomous, producing large puffs of vapor electronic cigarette with two modes of soaring, which is very rare for this class of devices.

The UNIMAX 25 design is also remarkable. It looks very presentable and even somehow “elite” because of leather inserts, especially against the rival iJust S. Also, the mod from Joyetech has a more roomy clearomizer and goes well with 25 mm atomizers. You can purchase the entire set for 1900 – 3000 rubles, which is not much more expensive than iJust S, but the equipment is many times richer.

Vandy Vape AP Kit – waterproof MTL kit

Vandy Vape comes in the second, and probably even the third, attempt to create a decent MTL set. As before, compactness, autonomy, and a true MTL effect should be the fundamental criteria. Let’s see what happened to them this time.

Perhaps correcting the flaws of past devices of this segment, this time, the developers perform the lower resistance threshold at 0.6Ω, and the maximum output power up to 20W. This makes the mod “quite / more suitable” for the usual use of “scavenger men”.

The company Ijoy presented a very compact whale, powered by new batteries of standard size 20350. Most likely, it should be attributed to the AIO sets, designed to satisfy the owner’s nicotine hunger when he is away from home. Let’s see what happened.

SMOK ALIEN KIT VI REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

Wow! For a dual 18650 mod, this thing is pretty compact. Not only that, but Smok included a matching Baby Beast tank. The first tier of the box has this gorgeous mod in it, pull the ribbon to unveil the second tier where you will find all your accessories, manuals, and coils. I know basically every Vapor out there owns an Alien mod, some even own more than one. For some reason, I just never got around to getting one. So glad I have this one for review.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • One SMOK Alien 220W TC Box Mod
  • One SMOK TFV8 Baby Beast Tank
    • One V8 Baby Q2 Coil Head
    • One V8 Baby T8 Coil Head
  • USB Charging Cable
  • Replacement Parts and Glass
  • User Manual
  • 2 vape bands
  • Screen protector
  • Warranty card
  • Battery safety card

Very solid complete kit. All you need are some high-drain batteries to get started. They even included a screen protector which is a really nice touch.

Smok Alien Kit VI Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

THE MOD:

Of course, at the top of the mod, we have the stainless steel 510 pin. The threading is stainless steel and it is very smooth. The pin itself is gold plated. It has a very strong spring to it with a short but firm throw to it. All of my atomizers sit flush on it. In the four corners of the top plate of the mod, there are 4-star screws.

The side opposite of the screen has some branding on it that is not subtle but it’s not obnoxious either. There is a carbon fiber sticker with lettering that says Alien 220w TC. The sticker is made of high-quality and actually has some nice texture to it. It does not feel cheap at all.

Smok Alien Kit VI Review

On both narrow sides of the mod, they kind of look the same. However, one side houses a firing bar while the other side looks like a firing bar but really is just another side of the mod. Smok has become famous for its firing bar and there’s a good reason for that. This is an extremely comfortable mod to hold and vape. The firing bar on my mod was mounted solidly with no rattle or wiggle to it. It fires very easily when pressed at the top of the bar. The further down you move on the bar, the harder it gets to press. The bar is extremely easy to find and you will not be searching for a way to fire this mod.

Let’s face it, this is an extremely popular mod. One of the things that made it as popular as it is is the form factor. This is a comfortable mod that can be taken almost anywhere. Along with its form factor, the Alien screen is what set it apart from everything else in the industry. The screen is just loaded with all kinds of information. On the screen you will see wattage, temperature, mode, preheat, battery meter, volts, homes, aunts, PCB, puffs, and your puff duration. Like I said, more than enough information for the average Vapor to digest the screen has a nice clear font with adjustable brightness. The font can seem rather small especially to older vapers. It can also be tough to see in some outdoor conditions. On both sides above the screen and carbon fiber sticker, there is some venting.

Located below the screen we have the plus minus buttons. The plus minus buttons have a trapezoid shape to them. They are clicky, responsive and very well done. One thing I did not like about the plus minus buttons is the physical location of the minus button is actually higher than the plus button. To most people this would seem counterintuitive, I know it did for me. It did take some getting used to but I got over it rather quickly. The charge/update port is located below the plus minus buttons.It is horizontally mounted but it is mounted on an angle. I guess this was done so the port would work better with the flow and lines of the mod.

Smok Alien Kit VI Review

The battery door is one of the most solid battery doors I have seen on a mod like this. Push in and pull out to open the battery door. Push down and in to close it. It seals up very tight and has no wiggle or looseness to it at all. On the back of the door, there are button style contacts and you have the battery orientation clearly marked. There is some venting present period inside the battery door. There are clear battery orientation markings as well. All the batteries I use fit nice and snug with no battery rattle at all.

THE TANK:

The tank included in this kit is the Baby Beast tank it measures 22 x 53 mm. It has a 3ml capacity. One of the nice things about the Smok family of tanks is the coil selection and the baby Beast is no different. Included in the kit, you get a .15 ohm coil and a .4 ohm coil. The .15 ohm coil can be vaped as high as 70 watts but is best between 45 and 60 watts. The .4 ohm coil can be Vaped as high as 80 watts but is best between 55 and 65 last. There is no RBA section in the kit even though Smok makes one and sells it separately. I truly believe that all manufacturers should include an RBA section especially if it is made for the kit. To charge the customer separately is just not right.

Smok Alien Kit VI Review

While I do love the Baby Beast tank, I can’t help but feel that Smok should have included a bigger tank with a 220-watt mod. I know the Baby Beast is a tried and true tank that is very popular and it deserves all the praise it gets. I just would have preferred a bigger tank, something along the lines of a TFV8 or TFV12. The Alien mod is more than capable of handling a tank of that size. The Baby Beast does have a nice wide bore Delrin drip tip that attaches to a top cap that swings out for the top fill system. O’rings hold the glass in place and they are nice and beefy so you should not get any leaks. The Baby Beast coils screw directly into the chimney section of the tank. This shortened chimney drastically improves the flavor of the Baby Beast tank. Make no mistake about it, this is not a mouth to lung tank. Even if you cut down the airflow all the way, the best you will be able to do is get a restricted lung hit.

THE LOOK, FEEL, AND GENERAL AESTHETICS OF THE MOD:

I really like the form factor of this Alien kit. It feels great in the hand and the tank Smok provided matches beautifully to the mod. This is a small dual battery mod that is extremely comfortable to hold in the hand. Now, I know that Smok has had issues with the paint on early versions of the Alien. I spoke to Smok and they assured me those paint issues are a thing of the past. I am normally pretty rough on my mods and so far my Alien has held up pretty well. I am not the type of vapor that babies his mods. I take them everywhere with me and I vape them all the time. So far, I have yet to see any paint chipping or flaking off my Alien mod. Overall, this is a very pocketable mod that is more than capable of satisfying most vapers.

Smok Alien Kit VI Review

THE BOARD:

Of course, the heartbeat of this kit is the extremely popular Alien chipset. In power mode, it vapes beautifully. TC, unfortunately, is another story. While Smok has never really been known as a TC company, I do expect their TC to be at least passable. Unfortunately, right now, the TC on the Alien kit is barely passable. I hope Smok corrects this in an update but I can only review what is put in front of me. It’s kind of a shame because this is really a groundbreaking mod that was a game changer for a long time. It deserves a better standing in the TC world than the one that it actually has.

THE MENU SYSTEM:

The Alien menu system will be very familiar to you if you own a Smok mod.

  • 5 clicks turns it on
  • Once it is on, 5 clicks locks it, 5 clicks unlocks it
  • 3 Clicks gets you into the menu system
  • In the menu system a long click makes your selection or you can use the +/- buttons
  • Menu settings include Mode, Puffs, Settings, and Power

Once in the mode setting, you can select the type of wire you want, the wattage, and the TCR. The puffs setting allows you to keep track of the puffs you take and even set a limit for yourself. The settings mode lets you adjust the screen time, screen lock, contrast, and adjust your ohms if need be. The Power setting lets the vaper shut the mod off.

Smok Alien Kit VI Review

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

Like I said earlier, this kit vapes great in power mode. TC mode, unfortunately, leaves a lot to be desired. I do like taking this mod out with me because of the battery life and compact size. This is just a great form factor. I actually feel bad that it took me this long to experience an Alien mod. Many other companies have tried to copy Smok’s firing bar and form factor. While some of them come close, nothing beats the real thing. This is a nice mod and tank combination that will and has appealed to an extremely large cross section of the vaping community.

CONCLUSION:

I love the way this kit feels in my hand. I love the tank that it comes with and I love the form factor of the mod. This mod is in my daily rotation. That alone says a lot about the performance of this kit. I have a ton of mods to choose from on a daily basis. For some reason, I always find myself looking for my Alien. It’s that good of a kit and now I understand why it is been as popular as it is.

I really enjoy the fact that this kit is so complete. A vaper can purchase this kit along with a quality set of 18650 batteries and a bottle of juice and get to vaping right away. This kit is for someone who’s had a mod for a while and is looking to upgrade with a better tank and a higher wattage mod. Because of the plethora of colors that are available, this is also a great mod for collectors. It’s also a great mod for the budget-conscious vapor that’s looking for a great form factor along with a stellar performance. Whatever reason you pick to justify why you own an Alien kit, and there are many, one thing is for sure you just can’t go wrong with this kit.

SMOK Stick X8 Review

SMOK Stick X8
Pen kit with a great tank
SMOK Stick X8 is one of the best vape pens we tested in 2017. It delivers amazing clouds and flavor and the battery packs enough power to last you a full day. If you also consider the affordable price tag, it’s definitely a best buy in this category.

The SMOK Stick X8 is like a breath of fresh air in an industry flooded with vape pens. This high power device is specifically designed for clouds and the new X-Baby sub ohm tank is a great improvement over its predecessor. Packed with a 3000mAh battery this bad boy is bound to give you an incredible vaping experience and no matter where you go.

WHAT YOU GET INSIDE THE BOX

Available in six different color the SMOK Stick X8 comes packed in a volcano themed cardboard presentation box. Inside you will find the battery, the X-Baby tank with an M2 0.25 Ohm coil already fitted, a spare X4 0.13 Ohm coil, a micro-USB charging cable, a bag of spares, a vape band and the user manual.

DESIGN AND MAIN FEATURES

SMOK Stick X8 side view

With a height of 85mm and a diameter of 24.5mm the battery is very portable. It’s powered by an internal 3000mAh cell and it gets fully charged in less than 4h. With a single button to operate the SMOK Stick X8 is very easy to use and it’s intended mainly for beginners looking to sub ohm. An LED indicator light surrounding the fire button will also tell you when it’s time to recharge the battery or when there’s a problem with the atomizer.

Power output depends on the coil you’re using and it ranges between 30W – 45W. That’s more than enough for big flavorful clouds and it also ensures the battery will last you a full day. As always, battery life tends to get better depending on the resistance of the coil you’re using. For instance we noticed more than 1h extra when using the 0.25 Ohm coil, as opposed to the 0.13 Ohm version.

The spring loaded 510 connector is plated with 24K gold and the battery also comes with several safety features such as low resistance protection, short circuit protection and low voltage protection.

THE ALL NEW X-BABY TANK

The X-Baby tank you get with the SMOK Stick X8 kit is a big improvement over the V8 Baby and it has top airflow and top fill. Total capacity if 4.0ml and it comes with a wide bore Delrin mouthpiece measuring 8.5mm. This prevents your lips from getting hot and it feels very comfortable. SMOK has even included a spare fill gasket as well as spare O-rings for the tank but no extra glass tube.SMOK Stick X8 tank

The 0.25 Ohm coil gives good flavor and a cooler vape, while the 0.13 Ohm coil is intended for max clouds. We didn’t notice any flooding or dry hits and we mostly used high VG juices during our tests. We do recommend the 0.25 Ohm coils for first timers though.

PERFORMANCE AND FINAL WORDS

In terms of performance the SMOK Stick X8 is one of the best vape pens we tested in 2017. It delivers amazing clouds and flavor and the battery packs enough power to last you a full day. If you also consider the affordable price tag, it’s definitely a best buy in this category.

SMOK H-PRIV Kit review

SMOK H-PRIV Kit

Designed to be small, sleek yet immensely powerful thanks to its max output of 220 watts, the H-PRIV is a new kit from SMOK featuring the SMOK H-PRIV 220W TC box mod and the SMOK Micro TFV4, a smaller version of the outstanding TFV4 that was first found as part of the SMOK Micro One Kit.

It has been built to fit ergonomically in hand, with a large red trigger style fire button at the side that is easy to locate and operate. A clear OLED screen is located at the top of the unit, and a magnetic battery door cover is used, combined with a solid zinc alloy construction to make for a small, robust and very powerful unit. Let’s see how the H-PRIV stacks up…

  • Temperature range 200-600F/ 100-315C
  • Voltage output range 0.35-8V

SMOK H-PRIV Kit

The SMOK H-PRIV Kit consists of the SMOK H-PRIV 220W TC box mod, and the SMOK Micro TFV4 sub ohm tank. That’s not all that is included in the kit however, as the kit is full of extras!

Alongside the SMOK H-PRIV 220w TC and the Micro TFV4 you also get a 0.3ohm Micro Fused Clapton core (pre installed with the Micro TFV4), a 0.25ohm Micro Stainless Steel Dual Core, a replacement XL glass tank section, tank extension adaptor, micro USB cable, user manual and finally a SMOK vape band. There’s an awesome amount of kit there, and easily enough to get you started off. You will however need to ensure you have two paired 18650 batteries that have a minimum continuous discharge rating of 25A.

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Kits.   

SMOK H-PRIV 220w TC

The SMOK H-PRIV 220w TC is the latest box mod from SMOK, following on from the X Cube series. Design wise, it does bear a resemblance to the X Cube, but it is smaller and features a large trigger style fire button, with thankfully no gimmicky LED this time around! It’s the perfect size to fit in your hand, and it has a clear OLED screen at the top of the unit along with the up and down buttons, and the spring loaded 510 connector. There is a new sliding magnetic battery cover found at the bottom of the unit, with 24K gold plated contacts, and this works like a dream.

Looks wise, I think it’s a big improvement on the bulky and unwieldy SMOK X Cube. The finish is far more attractive, and it’s also a more ergonomic device too, whilst being relatively light and very well made.

The OLED screen at the top of the unit features information such as current power output, battery level, resistance, puffs, voltage output and the current power boost setting. The power boost setting is a cool little feature that allows you to customize the ramp up time of your coil slightly, from soft, normal, hard, minimum and maximum. One odd thing I did find was a slight, but noticeable delay when pushing the power button to firing itself, even with the power boost setting at maximum!

There are tons of features present within the mod, accessible and adjustable through the deep menu system, which although feature rich can be a little confusing to use at first. You need to press the power button three times quickly then wait five seconds above the option you wish to select. You are presented with four options initially, mode enables you to switch between wattage, temperature control and memory mode followed by puffs which enables you to set a puff limit if you wish. You can also switch quickly between TC and VW by pressing power and up simultaneously, and holding down both up and down locks the device. The settings menu allows a huge wealth of customization, right down to setting the individual TCR for your preferred temperature control wire if you so wish. Finally, the final option is power which allows you to turn the mod on and off.

As with the name, you have 220W at your disposal, and a fully functional TC mode supporting the most popular wires such as Ni200, Titanium and Stainless Steel. A user customizable TCR is present to input the TCR of specific wires, and you can save a massive 16 power presents into the memory of the chip! You are able to fire resistances down to 0.1ohm in wattage mode and 0.06ohm in temperature control.

Safety features are built into the device. Alongside intelligent atomiser recognition, there is also a puff monitoring system, 12 second cut off, short circuit protection, overheating protection and low battery warning.

SMOK Micro TFV4

Included alongside the SMOK H-PRIV 220w TC is the SMOK TFV4 Micro. This is a micro version of the best selling TFV4 tank, manufactured from stainless steel with a Pyrex glass tank section and has a 2.5ml capacity as standard, or 3.5ml when you use the tank extension kit included within the box. You are able to fully strip down the Micro TFV4 for cleaning.

The swivel hinge and fill system that made the TFV4 such an easy tank to fill is present here. Simply slide the top cap open to reveal the filling ports, and it audibly clicks shut when you are done. There’s also a double layered drip tip present that protects against heat.

Airflow is adjusted via a smooth AFC ring at the base of the tank, whereby you can open up or close down four separate airflow holes. For such a small tank there is a ton of airflow present here, this is a very airy tank indeed.

You have two coils included with the Micro TFV4 tank. The Micro CLP2 Coil Core comes pre installed with the tank, and this is a 0.3ohm dual fused Clapton core with a recommended wattage range of 30-60w. Included as a spare in the kit is the Micro STC2 Coil Core, which is a 0.25ohm Stainless Steel dual core with a recommended wattage range of 30-60w. The Micro STC2 Coil Core can also be used in Temperature Control mode with the SMOK H-PRIV 220W TC. Other coils including an RBA coil are available to purchase separately.

Performance

I’ve already come across the Micro TFV4 tank, when I reviewed the SMOK Micro One kit, and the Micro TFV4 tank found here is exactly the same and supplied with the same coils. This is a very good little tank, and I prefer to run both the Micro CLP2 coil and Micro STC2 coils at the 50W mark. This gives me a lovely, warm vape with plenty of flavour, and coupled with the large airflow vapour production is outstanding. These micro coils may be small but they have absolutely no issues at all wicking high VG and thick juices, with no hint of a dry hit in sight.

Battery life is very good, however this is also dependent on the batteries that you choose to use, as the H-PRIV 220W TC does not come supplied with batteries. Running the Micro TFV4 with the Micro CLP2 at 50W with paired Sony VTC4’s easily gets me through a full day of heavy use, at higher wattages the battery life is shortened, however it still gives very decent lifespan.

You can even pair the new SMOK TFV8 with the SMOK H-PRIV 220W TC, if you really want to take advantage of the H-PRIV’s high wattage capabilities. As the H-PRIV is able to output up to 220W and fire resistances down to 0.1ohm in wattage mode, it’s perfectly compatible with SMOK’s latest cloud machine.

Conclusion

It’s a small kit, with big performance. The SMOK H-PRIV Kit is able to mix it with the best of them, being able to fire resistances down to 0.1ohm and output up to 220W, but it also offers great battery life too from the dual 18650 batteries, making it an ideal choice to take away on holiday or even to use as your main mod.

Not only is it powerful, it has great temperature control functionality too, which will please TC fans, and it’s a great little unit in hand that looks good and also offers pretty much everything you could need!

SMOK STICK PRINCE VAPE PEN REVIEW

Full In-Depth SMOK Prince Stick Review

New vape pen introductions seem to be limited at the moment, which is a shame for all those vapers who love the ease and convenience of these types of e-cigs. But thankfully SMOK have not given up on these products just yet with the release of the SMOK Stick Prince! Featuring a 3000mAh battery and their new Prince tank this vape pen is nothing short of awesome, producing some of the best clouds we’ve seen and a matching smooth flavor. But is this one of the best vape pens on the market, or should we look elsewhere? We take a look to see.

Colors available for the Smok Stick Prince

Design

All vape pens are very similar in design, especially those produced by SMOK, it’s basically just a battery shaft with one button. Everything is automatic, so no setting voltage, wattage, resistance etc. Just fill your tank up and you’re all set to go! SMOK, however, have introduced their new flagship Prince tank to the product set, with a bulb look, and an intelligent led battery indicator, this pen looks slightly different.

The Stick Prince pens, as you would expect come in a variety of colors, and knowing SMOK, they will probably introduce much more over the coming months. Currently, you have the choice of black, red, blue, gold, purple, rainbow, green and of course stainless silver, but don’t expect your local vape shop to hold all the colors, it’s just not practical!

The Prince Tank

The full name is the TFV12 Prince Tank, which is an addition to their popular and top-selling TFV range.

The standard version holds 8ml and measures 63mm tall with a diameter of 28mm, making it a pretty big tank, at least with the amount of e-liquid it holds. This is thanks to the unique convex, bulb shape they have incorporated in the glass.

The EU version, however, had to remove this due to the TPD regulations limiting tanks to holding just 2ml.

The tank is a top fill device, incorporating they’re loved and patented locking system to avoid any accidental spills. The Prince tank is marketed as the baby of the famous Cloud Beast King, one of the best vapor producing tanks on the market.

SMOK have been clever here and basically designed the whole Stick Prince around this tank, meaning you get a beautifully made pen that was just meant to be, as opposed to a battery with a weird looking tank plopped on top!

The Kit

  • 1 x 3000mAh Prince battery Stick
  • 1 x TFV12 Prince Tank
  • 2 x V12 M4 Coils (0.17ohm Quad Coil)
  • 1 x USB cable, instructions and spare parts

 

Performance

Now we all know vape pens are not going to perform as well as box mods where you can adjust the wattage as the coil slowly wares away, but for a simple to use e cig this pen is one of the best e-cigarette devices on the market.

With the 3000mAh battery, it pretty much lasts the day for a full-on vaper like us, it also features an intelligent LED light indicator system that informs you of the battery life. One big thing to note though, as you can’t adjust the voltage it’s probably best to stick with the M4 quad coils. Any coil with more would significantly reduce the amount of vapor due to the lack of power the SMOK Prince Stick has.

That aside, the performance is awesome, it just works really well. Beautiful flavor with huge amounts of clouds. Granted it’s not as good as the newer Smok Resa Stick vape pen, but it’s a close competitor!

To Conclude

If you like the look and simplicity of vape pens, then your simply going to love the Smok Stick Prince vape pen, it is one of the best e-cigs to quit smoking with and one that experts and intermediate vapers will also love for the convenience.

With the kit, you get the M4 Quad coils which work really well with the battery. If you want to try other coils bare in mind that the power produced by this pen might not match the same performance levels. Basically, stick with no more than quad coils!

Overall a great easy to use pen producing some of the best-tasting vapor available on the market, a strong recommendation from us!

JOYETECH ESPION KIT REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

When it comes to the Espion kit by Joyetech, we have some of their typical packaging here. Open the box and in a foam insert, you will find the mod sitting on top. Pull out the foam insert and underneath all of the paperwork, there will be a separate white Joyetech box with a spare coil as well as a spare parts bag. Next to that white box, there is a nicely sized USB cable.

I have to admit that when I first saw this mod, I thought that it had an extremely generic look to it. I noticed that Joyetech was marketing it as a businessman sort of mod. Once I looked at it in that context, I can understand where they were going with that type of marketing. It does look like something that a guy in a suit would carry. I should know, for 25 years, I was one of those guys in a suit. It’s a good looking mod and it has a very subtle, understated, no nonsense look to it. Let’s load this thing up with some batteries, put some juice in the tank, and see how it actually performs.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • 1 x Espion Box Mod
  • 1 x ProCore X Atomizer – 2ml
  • 1 x ProC1 0.4ohm DL Head
  • 1 x ProC1-S 0.25ohm MTL Head
  • 1 x Extended Vent Pipe
  • 1 x Spare Glass Tube (4.5ml)
  • 1 x QC USB Cable
  • 1 x Spare Parts

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

THE MOD:

The Espion is square in shape with rounded corners. It has a centered 510 that is spring loaded and gold plated. There is no real top plate to the 510 but it does have a bit of a recession going around the 510 itself. There are also four cutouts along the raised portion of the recession that provide some air flow to the bottom of your atomizer. The 510 has a really springy, long throw to it. The Espion mod will hold a 25mm atomizer with no overhang. You can also run a 28 mm atomizer on it but there will be some very slight overhang on the front and the back of the mod. It doesn’t look bad with 28’s but it definitely looks better with 25’s.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

With the mod facing you, on the left side of the mod is where the fire button is located. The fire button has some Joyetech branding on it and it is rectangular in shape. The edges of it kind of wrap around the corners of the mod and the corners of the fire button are rounded off. The button is stainless steel and it does look good against a black mod. It is a clicky and tactile fire button with a really fast response time. Overall, it’s a very comfortable fire button that is easy to find and use. It is very comfortable firing this button with your thumb or finger.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

The whole mod is made out of metal and it has some sort of straight grooves that go around the whole surface of the mod. The grooves definitely give it a nice texture and a sleek look. There is really no other branding on the mod except for the fire button and the backplate, where there is some Espion branding but it is done in black lettering on a black mod, so it is very subtle. I thought the name of the kit was a little weird, so I did Google it. I found out that the word Espion is actually French for spy.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

The battery door is located on the bottom of the mod and it is the push-down, push-out sort of door. There is some texture on the back of the battery door that allows you to get a grip when you are opening it. The door is attached with a hinge system and it is very solid. When you close it, it does give you a satisfying click to let you know that it is shut. On the inside of the battery door, there are positive and negative battery indicator markings as well as A and B markings. On the inside of the battery door, there are two button style, gold-plated, battery contacts. The battery tubes are made out of plastic and on the interior, you will see a plus and minus button done in red and blue. The contacts on the bottom of the tube are spring loaded and gold plated. So far, every battery that I have put into this mod has fit in there nice and snug with no movement at all. There’s also no battery or door rattle.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

Front and center on the Joyetech Espion, we have a 1.45-inch TFT color display with the screen lay out in a vertical arrangement. The Espion screen is very bright and you will be able to view it in all lighting conditions, including direct sunlight. On the screen, you will be able to see the time of day, a dual-battery meter, mode, wattage, temperature, volts, resistance, and a puff counter. The background of the screen has the ability to change color. There are four background color choices that include black, gray, green, blue, and brown. I love the fact that you can see the time on the main screen. Every mod should have this feature.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

Located below the screen is the select button and the up & down buttons. The select button is square in shape and it is kind of small for a mod of this size. The select button enables you to select menu choices but on the main screen, it doubles as a stealth button. On the main screen, all you do is hit the select button to shut the screen off, and then you hit the select button to turn the screen on again, if you wish. The up and down button is one solid button with each side being very responsive. The button is rectangular in shape and the same width as the select button. The mod does scroll in .1 ohm increments but once it gets going, it does scroll rather fast. All the interface buttons are very tactile with a nice click to them. Below the buttons, there is a USB charge update port. This mod is firmware upgradeable and it does charge at 2 amps.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

THE TANK:

The Espion comes with a Pro Core X tank and two coils. The X tank is a Pro Core tank and I have used a lot of Pro Core tanks in the past. The top fill actually reminds me a lot of the sense Blazer top cap. It has what I call a toilet seat type of top cap, because when you flip it open, it looks like an open toilet seat. The X has two juice fill ports on either side and a gasket around them. The juice fill ports look like two little curved slots and they will accommodate most juice bottles on the market today.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

The drip tip on the Pro Core X has a metal interior but the exterior is made of Delrin. Unfortunately, as with most Pro Core tanks, you cannot use your own drip tip on this tank. I would really like to see Joyetech correct that and find a way to make a Pro Core tank with a removable drip tip. In order to open the tank, you have to locate the drop symbol and push forward. Once you push forward, the top cap will flip open and reveal the juice fill ports.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

The Pro Core tank does use Pyrex glass and it has a 4.5 ml capacity. It has a conically designed chimney that screws right into the top of your coil. The bottom of your coil screws into the base and all of this holds the glass in place via the tension created when screwing both ends of the coil into the tank. There is a thick o’ring at the base that will definitely guard against leaks. I have vaped this tank a lot and it does not leak. On the base, we have dual adjustable airflow so whatever you adjust on one side will happen on the other side as well. The action on the AFC is smooth but there are no click positions on it. It does have stoppers on both ends. Threading on the 510 pin is smooth and the 510 pin itself looks to be made out of stainless steel. Overall, it’s a decently machined tank that vapes pretty well.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

The kit also comes with a 2 ml glass to make it TPD compliant. I have to be totally honest, I have never used that glass and I really have no need to use it in the future. Whenever I get a kit like this, I automatically install the chimney extension and put the larger glass on. I know that companies have to make things that are TPD compliant for our European brethren but I wish they wouldn’t include us when they make up these kits. I would love to see them make a kit for the Europeans and then one for the rest of the world.

THE COILS:

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

Included in your Espion kit from Joyetech, you will get two coils. One is the Pro C1 .4 ohm atomizer head and the other is the Pro C1S .25 ohm atomizer head. One is for direct lung vaping and the other is for MTL vaping. I really would not call the C1S coil a true MTL coil, it is more of a lower wattage flavor coil. I will go over both of them in detail now.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

The first coil I used was the .4 ohm coil. It has a rating of 40 to 80 watts and a best recommended wattage of 55 to 65 watts. That best rating is actually pretty accurate because I really do enjoy running this coil right in the middle at around 60 watts. I get very good flavor from the coil and the cloud production is excellent as well. I normally like to vape right around 80 watts, so this is just a little bit below what I usually enjoy. It is actually a very good coil and you do get excellent flavor and very good cloud production. It will keep up at 80 watts and still maintain good flavor. It’s just a little bit more flavorful at around 60 watts as opposed to 80 watts.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

The second coil I tried was the .25 ohm coil. Joyetech has it rated from 25 to 55 watts with a best range of 30 to 40 watts. I did enjoy running this coil on the lower end of the spectrum. I did find that when I pushed this coil past 40 watts, it had a hard time keeping up. The juice would taste slightly burnt above 40 watts and it just was not pleasant in that range. For me, 30 watts is the sweet spot where I did get a very nice, flavorful yet cool vape. Really, not my type of vape but I know there are people out there that enjoy vaping like this. For those that like to be under the 40 watt range, this is a pretty good coil but I would not recommend pushing it past 30 watts.

THE LOOK, FEEL, AND GENERAL AESTHETICS OF THE MOD:

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

I have to admit, for a 2 battery mod, the Espion has a pretty small form factor, even by today’s standards. When I first received this mod, the look of it was very bland to me but I have to be totally honest and admit that the look of it has really grown on me. For some reason, the more I look at this mod, the more I like the aesthetics of it. The Espion has a comfortable form factor to it and it does feel really good in the hand. It is also very pocketable, especially for a dual 18650 mod. I do like the no-nonsense look of it and it does have a business-like appeal, as far as the looks go. Joyetech has been kind of absent from the dual 18650 market and this is a good looking mod that they have put forth, to compete in a very competitive sub category. If you like that very understated type of look, then you are definitely going to love the Espion.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

THE BOARD:

This is a new proprietary board for Joyetech. I review most of their products and I have never seen this one before. It has a different menu system and a totally different screen to it than anything that I reviewed in the past. The Espion actually has a 4-button interface, which is definitely new for Joyetech. While it is nice to see a fourth button on this mod, I do think the Joyetech could have done a better job of making more use of it. All they really did was add a select button. You still have to click the fire button 3 times in order to get into the main menu. I would have rather have seen them use this as a menu button as opposed to a select button that they decided to go with.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

The Espion does have a full temperature control suite that has the ability to TC and Ni, Ti, and SS. It also has a TCR function with three memory slots for your custom wires as well as a preheat function. In TC mode, the mod is capable of firing as low as .05 ohms and in power mode, it will fire as low as .1 ohm. It has a temperature range of 200 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit.

THE MENU SYSTEM:

This is a brand new menu system for Joyetech but it is definitely easy to learn.

  • Click the fire button 5 times to turn the mod on and off.
  • With the screen on, click the fire button 3 times to enter the main menu screen.
  • Once in the main menu screen, use the up and down button to scroll through your choices and use the select button to select your choices.
  • To change your wattage in TC mode, you have to go into the set sub menu and change your wattage there.

Joyetech Espion Kit Review

My only real complaint about the menu system is that you kind of have to jump through hoops in order to change your wattage in TC mode. I’m sure that can easily be fixed with a firmware update. There should be some sort of shortcut when you are in TC mode that enables you to change your wattage in a much easier manner.

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

I have enjoyed my time with the Espion kit. The one thing you notice right away, when you start using this mod, is that it fires right away. There is virtually no lag time from when you hit the button and the vapor starts coming out of your atomizer. This thing fires really quick. As far as the accuracy goes, I doubt it does the full 200 watts. I’m sure it’s coming close enough at around 175 or 180 watts but it’s definitely not doing the full 200 watts. I did vape it next to my 3 battery DNA and that’s exactly what it felt like, around 175 watts.

As far as the TC goes, Joyetech just continues to frustrate me with their janky TC. The thing that’s so frustrating about it is that sometimes the TC works and sometimes, it doesn’t. This has been an issue with more than one Joyetech mod. This mod seems to do better with a single coil in TC mode. When it works in that mode, with a single coil, the TC is actually really good. For some reason unbeknownst to me, I run into trouble when I run a dual coil tank on this mod in TC mode. No matter what tank I put on, if it has dual coils in it, I am constantly getting kicked out of TC. I just don’t understand that and I don’t know why Joyetech can’t make it a priority to nail down their TC. The shame of it is, when it does work, the TC is actually really good.

WHAT WOULD MAKE IT BETTER:

  • Enough Already! Fix The TC!
  • Replaceable DT

I don’t know any other way to explain this. It’s getting to the point of ridiculousness already. I can’t understand why Joyetech does not make a concerted effort to fix their TC. People want TC, people like TC, if you are not going to do it properly, then why even offer it on your mods. Just make it a power mode only mod and let’s just stop this ridiculous dance already.

When you think about it, it’s really kind of ridiculous that this tank does not have a replaceable drip tip. Nobody wants a drip tip that they can’t replace. What if it’s just not comfortable to me? What am I supposed to do? Just live with it? Even though it is a comfortable drip tip, I want the ability to be able to replace it.

CONCLUSION:

This is a very generic, no-nonsense looking kit. I could actually see how it would appeal to a business person and why Joyetech is marketing it that way. It’s a good looking, business-like mod with clean lines and a good performing tank. I like the screen, I like the fire button, and I like the way it vapes in power mode. The TC unfortunately is a total fail. Joyetech really has to get their act together and start nailing their TC down. If you guys are reading this, please take these comments to heart and do something about the TC because it’s been an ongoing problem for a long time now. Other than that, if you’re not a TC vaper, then you’ll probably enjoy this kit a lot. It has a great form factor and it is definitely on the small side as far as dual 18650 mods go.
