Eleaf iStick Pico 21700 Review: Bottom LineFrom the original version of Eleaf iStick Pico box mod series, now comes this newest version which caters a single external 21700 battery that can be a big support for its maximum output of 100 watts. It has a temperature control that supports Nickel, Titanium, and Stainless steel. A Bypass Mode that can provide a similar power to a full mechanical box mod.

Eleaf iStick Pico 21700 Review: Background

The Eleaf Pico iStick Pico is one of the best-regulated box mod I have ever owned, I got mine with the original version which houses external 18650 Battery , I got it over a year ago and still using it now for my rotation of my different vaping devices. It has served me well and still working 100% until now.

Now, the Eleaf Company has release this newest version of their ever famous box mod, the iStick Pico 21700 . This is a single battery box mod that houses an external 21700 battery, a maximum output of 100 watts. I am expecting a good performance with this new version and probably be included with our Best Vape Mod of 2018.

Design: Eleaf iStick Pico 21700 Review

The Eleaf iStick Pico is known for its minimalistic design, focusing more on what it can provide over what should it look. It has an extended battery cap with a lower 510 connector. As far as I know, Eleaf iStick Pico is the first one who integrated this kind of design, in this way extending the battery cap will minimize the overall height even if an Atomizer is connected in this device.

This is a very portable Vaping Device, with an overall height of 77 mm just a little bit over with the height of 21700 battery. This is the best thing that I love about Eleaf iStick Pico, using a portable device with such a good performance.

Performance: Eleaf iStick Pico 21700 Review

This newest version of Eleaf iStick Pico has a maximum output of 100 watts, which is way stronger from the original version. A good maximum output should be paired with a good performing battery, this is paired with 21700 battery that will be a good support with the 100 watts of output.

It has a feature of Temperature control, but what I like more is its included Bypass Mode, this allows me to have a similar power to a full mechanical device which its power depends on the battery life’s current state.

Eleaf iStick Pico 21700 VS Similar Mods

What is the key difference of Eleaf iStick Pico 21700 to other Starter Mods?

I picked the iJoy Capo 100w and the Aspire Cygnet Box Mod as they have a similar design with Eleaf iStick Pico, which is the extended battery cap to minimize the overall height.

  • iJoy CAPO 100w vs Eleaf iStick Pico 21700 – Both of these box mod can perform really well with both of them having 100 watts of maximum power. But I am more confident that Eleaf iStick Pico will have a better performance based on my experience.
  • Aspire Cygnet Box Mod vs Eleaf iStick Pico 21700 – The Eleaf iStick Pico will have an advantage in terms of performance with its maximum output of 100 watts compared to Cygnet box mod with only 80 watts of max power. Also the Eleaf iStick Pico is way lighter in weight.

Final Thoughts: Eleaf iStick Pico 21700 Review

I’ve been waiting for Eleaf to release a version of iStick Pico with a higher power of battery, they have been creating different versions and now a 21700 battery. The Eleaf iStick Pico 21700  is one of the best choices for a regulated vaping device with a good performance and portable size.

I will definitely recommend to everyone getting this new version of Eleaf iStick Pico and I’ll be voting this to be included in our Best Vape Mod list, because of its good performance and probably because of its durability over time. It can last you years of vaping and using this box mod.

Eleaf iStick Pico 75W TC Mod Review

iStick Pico by Eleaf

 

The Eleaf iStick series is beloved by new vapers and many long-term vapers alike, offering excellent performance in compact and generally beginner-friendly packages. The Eleaf iStick Pico 75W is the latest addition to the family, offering up to 75W of power and temperature control in a compact, user-friendly package.

So how does the device stand up to the day-to-day needs of vapers? Is it a great device for a just-switching smoker looking for better performance? Is it the perfect mod for travelling? Our Eleaf iStick Pico review takes a look at what the device has to offer to find out.

 

What You Get

 

Eleaf iStick Pico Unboxing

 

The Eleaf iStick Pico 75w kit comes in a white cardboard box with an image of the device on the front and a scratch-off authentication sticker on the back, along with all of the key information about the device and what’s included in the kit. The foam insert on the upper level contains your mod and the Melo 3 Mini tank, each in individual slots. Underneath the foam layer, there’s a cardboard cover hiding four spare O-rings (for various spots on the tank), a USB charging cable, a spare 0.5 ohm coil (along with the 0.3 ohm one pre-installed in the tank) and manuals for both the mod and the tank. There are no complaints here – this is all you need apart from an 18650 battery and some juice to start vaping.

 

iStick Pico Design

 

iStick Pico Vape Mod

 

The iStick Pico’s main design feature is the fact that it’s impressively small. The curved edges and the small stature of the device – which measures just 70.5 mm (about 2 and 3/4 inches) tall and 45 mm (1 and 3/4 inches) wide – means it fits comfortably into your hand, in a pocket or in a bag. Even with the Melo 3 Mini attached the whole thing is less than 5 inches tall. You can pick up the mod in black, white, silver, grey and hot pink, with my version being the latter.

Comfortable and compact size

 

The mod itself has a traditional boxy shape (albeit with curved edges), with a section for the battery at the back and an OLED screen, fire button and micro-USB port on the front edge. The cap for the battery section protrudes from the top of the mod at the back end, which ruins the uniform appearance of the device when the tank isn’t attached but fits in much better when you have the Melo or another atomizer screwed in place.

 

Eleaf iStick Pico - Button Layout

 

The adjustment buttons are actually located on the bottom end of the device, with a little two-section rocker button marked “+” and “−” on the opposite side to a circle of vent-holes under the battery section. The metallic fire button is above the OLED display, and it follows the curve of the device, making for comfortable operation.

 

iStick Pico 75 W - Design

 

Thread Type: The 510 connection is in the center of a ring-shaped trench, and has a spring-loaded contact pin to minimize any connection issues. The threading is high-quality, and you’re unlikely to run into any problems with it at all. The top of the device is a little crowded because of the small distance between the 510 connection and the battery cap, but you can still unscrew everything easily, and it helps to keep the device as compact as possible.

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

 

Eleaf Melo 3 Mini Sub Ohm Tank

 

Melo 3 Tank: The Melo 3 Mini has a fairly standard sub-ohm tank design, with a wide-bore chimney section, bottom-coil design, wide-bore drip tip and an airflow control ring at the bottom. The tank is top-filling, with grooves cut out of the edges of the top cap so you can easily grip it and unscrew to reveal two sizeable slots for refilling. The airflow control is a little unique in that the slots are covered by an outer ring, so it adjusts in the same way as most other tanks (just turn it to your desired setting), but you can only see how far open it is if you look down at an angle. This isn’t as annoying as it may sound, though, and it contributes to the professional appearance of the tank.

 

Coils: The coils have a vertical alignment and are surrounded by cotton, with a ring of gauze visible from the top (like on the Aspire Atlantis coils, for example). They simply screw into the bottom base, and the open-top design makes it easy to drop a bit of juice in there directly to prime your coil before you fill up.

 

Overall, both the Eleaf iStick Pico and the Melo tank are excellently-designed, and they pair together beautifully, especially with the O-ring color on the tank matching the mod – it looks like they’re meant to be together.

 

Features

 

Eleaf iStick Pico 75 W Mod

 

Variable Wattage: The iStick Pico 75W mod has a solid feature-set, despite being a very beginner-friendly device. The most basic feature is the variable wattage you expect on any device, with the power being directly adjustable from 1 W to 75 W. Why modern devices include 1 W still baffles me, but the range of powers covered is more than enough for most vapers’ purposes.

 

Bypass Mode: You can also set the Pico in Bypass mode, which gives you the raw battery voltage without any adjustments so you’re operating at a specific wattage. I personally don’t find this feature especially useful, but if you’re looking for mechanical mod-like operation, then the option is there.

 

iStick Pico - TC Mode

TC-SS and TCR Mode: The temperature control on the iStick Pico covers nickel, titanium, stainless steel and offers temperature coefficient of resistance (TCR) mode. The latter mode means you can adjust how the device interprets the changes in resistance that accompany increasing or decreasing temperature, and effectively allows you to set the device up to suit even more wire types or adjust the responsiveness to suit your preferences. The TCR mode is accessed through the M1, M2 and M3 options that appear when you hit the fire button three times to enter the mode menu. You can lock the room temperature resistance of the atomizer by pressing and holding both the fire and “+” buttons for two seconds. Your temperature can be set in the standard range of between 100 and 315 °C or 200 and 600 °F.

 

Eleaf iStick Pico TC-SS and TCR Modes

 

Safety Features: The Eleaf Pico also comes with the expected set of safety features, including 10 second cutoff, short circuit, low voltage and high temperature protection, and it also limits the minimum resistance of your atomizer to 0.1 ohms in standard or bypass mode and 0.05 ohms in TC mode. This is plenty of protection to ensure you stay safe when you’re vaping, although you’ll need to ensure you use a high-amp drain 18650 battery with the device.

 

Stealth Mode: The device also has a few more useful features. Pressing the fire and “–” buttons together for two seconds toggles stealth mode on and off, which means you can vape without the device lighting up, but still see your settings by pressing the fire button once. The device can also be turned off with five quick presses of the fire button, and you can lock the adjustment buttons by holding them both down together for two seconds, which is handy given their location. If you press both the adjustment buttons for two seconds while the device is powered off, the display will be flipped when you power back up.

 

Firmware: The device also has upgradable firmware, which is a great feature that allows you to take advantage of any updates to its offerings in the future. The micro-USB port can also be used for charging your battery, and you can vape as you charge too – both of which are very useful features for vapers who don’t have multiple batteries or a dedicated 18650 charger.

 

Overall, the Eleaf iStick Pico TC mod is pretty rich in features, with all the safety features you need, a very capable temperature control system and several handy extras.

 

iStick Pico Vaping Experience

 

Eleaf iStick Pico Review - Performance

 

The Eleaf iStick Pico 75W has a solid design and an impressive feature-set, but does it all translate to an enjoyable vaping experience?

 

On the whole, the Pico does a great job in use. Once you’ve primed your coil and filled up the tank, the device works just as you want it to, powering the Melo 3 Mini tank efficiently and providing excellent vapor production and flavor. Making adjustments is a little unusual due to the position of the buttons, but once you get used to it there’s no problem at all. The recommended settings are also printed on the coils, so if you’re unsure of what the best wattage is for your coil there’s a handy guide for you.

 

Compact Size: Probably the biggest benefit of the Pico in use is its size. It packs as much power as much larger devices, but thanks to the compact size it makes an excellent device for carrying around with you out of the house. It easily slips into a pocket or bag, and it also fits nicely in your hand. When you grip the device, your index finger falls naturally on the fire button too, so using it is about as comfortable as possible.

 

Display Screen: The display screen offers all of the key information you need in a simple format, with a two-decimal-point reading for the resistance and applied voltage, and the wattage shown on the right of the screen. In TC mode, your temperature setting takes the spot of the wattage, the wattage is shown instead of the voltage on the left and your wire material is also displayed on the top right of the screen. It has a battery icon on the far left to show your remaining charge level – I generally don’t like this approach because it lacks precision, but it gives you enough of an idea to determine when you should recharge.

 

TC Mode: The temperature control is also well-executed. Although the ramp-up voltage is fixed at 75 W, the device performs solidly in TC mode. We only tested it with nickel coils, but the result was great – it still offers a consistent vape even with the almost uncomfortably quick ramp-up, providing a continuous trickle of power as you hold down the fire button and periodically flashing up “temp protection” as you reach your designated limit. You can toggle between Celsius and Fahrenheit by going to the top or bottom of the allowed range.

 

The lack of the option to adjust the ramp-up wattage was a little disappointing, but this will hopefully be addressed with a firmware update in future. As it stands, there doesn’t appear to be an upgrade available, so unfortunately I can’t evaluate the process as of yet.

 

As with many mods, for the most part you won’t use many of the additional features. Although stealth mode is a nice feature to include, for instance, the times when the tiny amount of light from the screen will cause a problem for you are very limited, so most vapers probably won’t use it.

 

Similarly, it’s handy to be able to adjust the TCR setting, but most vapers using TC will have nickel, titanium or stainless steel coils anyway, so most users won’t need it. To change the setting, you press and hold the fire button and the “+” button with the power turned off. This brings you into a simple menu where you can select the option you want (from M1, M2 and M3) and then adjust the coefficient to whatever you like. There are suggested values in the manual if you want to play around.

 

Eleaf iStick Pico - 18650 Battery

 

Built-In Battery: Newer vapers may be concerned about using a device without an in-built battery, but it’s really very straightforward. The inside of the cap has a minus sign to show the orientation of the battery, and there’s a “+” at the bottom in red tape too. All you have to do is drop your battery in – negative (flat) side up – screw on the cap and you’re good to go. If you’re really concerned about doing this, you can charge up using the device’s USB port (and vape while you’re doing it!) so you won’t need to deal with it after your first installation.

 

Melo Tank: Finally, the Melo III Mini sub-ohm tank is part of the package, so it’s worth dedicating a bit of time to it here. The tank is a solid performer, working well with anything from the standard 50/50 PG/VG mixes to higher-VG blends, and the flavor and vapor production is brilliant. The top-filling design makes filling up a breeze, and the wide range of airflow settings means it can be easily adjusted to suit mouth-to-lung or direct lung inhalation styles. I’m undecided as to whether the benefits to its appearance from the hidden slot are worth the awkwardness of working out how open it is by looking down into the tiny visible slither, but as mentioned earlier, you do get used to it.

Everything the iStick Pico and Melo offer combine to provide a very enjoyable vaping experience. It’s easy enough to get to grips with for newer vapers, but the rich selection of features makes it a rewarding option for longer-term vapers too. The device isn’t perfect, but the limitations are very minor and pale in comparison to the benefits of the combination.

Manufacturing Quality

Eleaf doesn’t have the greatest reputation when it comes to quality control, but this largely comes down to the in-built batteries on devices like the 50 W iStick, so the external battery approach of the iStick Pico sidesteps these potential issues nicely. The device itself seems very well-made, with no problems whatsoever emerging through my testing.

Conclusion

  The Eleaf iStick Pico 75W TC mod does exactly what it sets out to. If you’re looking for a capable, portable and dependable mod to take with you out of the house, or a device that’s simple enough for a new user that doesn’t compromise when it comes to performance, the Pico is a stand-out option. The kit is competitively-priced, and you get a solid sub-ohm tank thrown in for good measure too. While the option to adjust the ramp up voltage for TC mode would have been handy, and the device includes some features most vapers probably won’t use, there are no serious complaints about the device at all. Many vapers have given up on Eleaf recently, but the iStick Pico is the sort of device that could bring them back in droves.

Podod-system Digiflavor Liip Disposable. First look

Introduction

Today on the agenda of the new representative of the fashionable nowadays “his lads” – disposable Liip Pod-system from the Chinese company Digiflavor.

It is impossible to deny the fact that the Pod-systems today are pretty well entrenched in the vaping industry and do not seem to be going to lose ground. More and more companies are trying to join this new trend, releasing something of their own.

However, most of these devices simply copy each other, without bringing anything new to their constructive. But there are not many disposable Pod devices on the market yet, although this type of electronic cigarettes has been invented for quite some time.

And in this article we will just look at a similar device in the face of Liif Disposable Pod from Digiflavor.

 

Appearance

The novelty is a one-time maintenance-free “slyshku” in a plastic case, which has a stylish design and bright colors. With the latter, by the way, is another interesting point, which we will talk about later.

Dimensions Liip Disposable Pod can be called modest. So, a smoker switching to steam is unlikely to experience discomfort on the size of this device, because it looks more like a cigarette lighter than any kind of vip thing.

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

Inside the device there is a 240 mAh battery. Such a capacity should be enough to evaporate the liquid poured in the “slyshka”, but to recharge the battery does not work in mind, again, the features and purpose of Liip Disposable Pod.

AdsScroll Down to Skip

Returning to the colors of the new product, it should be said that depending on the color of the case, the taste of the filled fluid will also vary. In total, the future owner will be able to choose from four options: tobacco, orange, berries, and the so-called Reddy.

The latter, by the way, is filled with nicotine-free liquid; for tobacco taste, the nicotine content will be 4.8%, and for orange and berries – 3.6%. In the box with the Liip Disposable Pod there will be three “one-time” items if you choose a device with nicotine and two pieces each in zero.

 

Specifications Digiflavor Liip Disposable

  • Dimensions: 73.7 x 20 x 13 mm
  • Type: disposable pod system
  • Battery: 240 mAh
  • Nicotine: Tobacco 48 mg / ml, Berry / Orange 36 mg / ml, Reddy 0 mg / ml

OBS Bat Mod 218W Review | First Mod from OBS

OBS-Bat-Mod

OBS Bat Mod 218W intro

The OBS Bat Mod is the first mod from atomizer manufacturer OBS, most well known for their Engine RTA. The Bat is a dual-18650 mod with a centered 510 pin that claims to have maximum 218-watt power output. It has customizable LED’s on the front, and in keeping with the superhero theme we’ve seen lately (like the Vaptio Wall Crawler), it boasts a Batman aesthetic, even showing a similar logo on power-up.

Colors: red, blue, white, black, and yellow.

OBS Bat Mod 218W specs and features

Initial impressions and features

OBS-Bat-Mod

The Bat Mod is impressively solid and well-built — a little heavy, but not too heavy. The LED’s are two arrow-shaped cutouts that look like they’re pointing at the screen from above and below it. Of course, you can use the settings to turn them off if you want.

The mod itself is 32 mm at its widest point, but due to the design of the platform even a 28 mm atomizer overhangs ever so slightly (but still doesn’t look too bad). Anything under that won’t overhang. I would’ve preferred the ability to handle 30 mm atomizers without overhang.

Wattage mode performance

obs-bat-power-output-test

This mod performs well! It’s usually within a few watts of the displayed settings. The output is always smooth and consistent, and the mod never gets hot or warm in my stress testing.

The voltage output also fell a little short of the stated spec. Usually when mods list 8.4 as their max voltage it’s a theoretical number rather than a real one, because 8.4 is about the input voltage of fully charged batteries which also indicates that the mod has no boost circuit. Due to battery sag under load, no mod can put out full battery voltage without a boost circuit. Still I got 7.258 volts with a 0.5-ohm coil, which is right in line with most dual battery mods that don’t have boost circuits.

The OBS Bat measured a 42-amp max, which is above average for a dual battery mod. The average these days is 40. Overall I find this to be an excellent performer that is average or above for a dual battery mod in all three tests and gets close enough to its listed specs that I’d describe it as accurate.

Temperature control performance

There is no TCR mode per se, but you can set TCR values after selecting your choice of Ni, Ti, or SS modes. I used SS316 wire with the default SS mode set to a TCR value of 00092. I tested six builds, ranging from single round round wire in spaced single and dual coils to fancy single- and dual-coil builds. Overall I was pretty impressed with the performance of this mod.

In 2017 we saw a lot of good temperature control mods that don’t cost an arm and a leg, and the OBS Bat is right there with them. It’s been smooth and consistent and has great ramp up. Even switching between builds I didn’t have to adjust any settings. Wattage can be set in TC mode all the way up to the full 218 watts. There is no limit on power in temp control. It throttles back nicely and is never “pulsey.”

The mod does tend to hit a little on the low side. I like a warm vape, and every build I’ve used has worked well in the 460-480° F range, so I recommend starting off around 430° F then working your way up until you get the vape you want. It has good dry hit protection under 500° F. Beyond that point, you might get a dry hit. I think most will find the vape they like in the 430-480° F range, which is pretty much the way it should be. Overall, I find the OBS Bat Mod to be a solid performer in temp control.

Features and other information

OBS-Bat-Mod

I’ve tested ten different atomizers on this mod with no issues at all. Pulling and wiggling the 510 connection causes no problems or drops in performance. The mod is solid with no button rattle at all. The fire button is large and clicky and has a nice texture — similar to the Vaporesso Switcher button’s texture. The screen is large and bright with all the info you’d want, including individual battery monitors.

The battery door is a standard magnetic back plate, and locks into place without any gaps. The battery tray allows for easy exchange of batteries and shouldn’t damage your battery wraps. The LED’s are programmable with different colors and options and can also be completely turned off.

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

How to use the mod

OBS-Bat-Mod

Anyone who has used a SMOK mod in the past will learn this one easily. Due to SMOK’s popularity, it’s no surprise OBS modeled the menu after theirs. It’s nearly identical to the SMOK Alien Mod.

Clicking five times locks and unlocks the device. Three clicks enters the menu. Once in the menu, you can click Fire or use the up and down buttons to scroll. To enter a sub menu, hold Fire. When you select power mode you have the option of a soft, normal, or hard preheat.

When you select Temperature mode you have to select wire type (Ni, Ti, or SS), then set your wattage, then set the TCR. Above 100 watts, the Bat adjusts in 1.0-watt increments. Below 100 watts, it has 0.1-watt increments. When you hit the maximum or minimum, it round robins back to the opposite end of the settings. The Bat is very straightforward and simple to use.

Geekvape Blade Kit Review: A Lot To Love

blade kit 235w main

Introduction – The Blade Kit 235W By Geekvape

The Geekvape Blade mod is the latest from a brand that has released some great products as of late. This young brand has been making waves and innovating with every single release, building a huge base of vape fans along the way, fans like me who eagerly await the announcement of every new bit of gear they release.

From the indestructible Aegis mod, to the wildly popular Ammit RTA, the Zeus RTA and the new, out of this world original Loop RDA which I cannot wait to get my grubby paws on.

Build Quality & Design

Blade Mod

On opening the high quality black and orange, GeekVape box packaging, well…I almost cried, so beautiful was my one-of-a-kind StarryNight mod…the mod is also available in Crytal Sand, Black and a very cool pink and purple cartoon colour, lovingly named “Poppy”.
blade kit 235w handOf course, the names of this collection are somewhat reminiscent of Van Gogh paintings, we’ll leave that there.

What I love about the Starry Night is that every one printed is different, with unique rainbow swirls that bring to mind distant galaxies, carpets in Vegas and just about anything that might have killed our braincells back in the 90’s…or 2000’s for that matter.blade kit 235w 510

The mod is by no means small, it is, however…extremely light weight, made with aircraft grade PPS, an organic polymer that’s battle tested and stands up like a champion to all kinds of heat and chemical bombardments…in other words, this Geekvape Blade ought to be a durable bugger!

From the top, where a deep, springy 510 connect sits in a disk like SS, tank seating…the Blade is the shape of a somewhat squat shield, 6 sided, with the bottom of the shield being the top of the side that is home to the fire button, screen, adjustment buttons and micro USB port, all in a line, in that order from top to bottom and all on a shiny black, plastic panel.. with top and bottom shaped into points so that the panel is also 6 sided.

The fire button, round and featuring that concentric ring texturing that we all love so much, is surrounded by an LED ring, which will light up slime GREEN around the button when clicked…and it is clicky.

The adjustment buttons, which are just below the 1 inch OLED screen, are hexagonal and have a clear + and – marked on them.

The base has very light silver print branding on it.blade kit 235w base

The mod is entirely unadorned, except of course for the magnificent print finish, which feels like the softest velvet and brings tears to your easily pleased eyes.

The top three sides of that shield extend to form the battery cover, which sits inside your palm and is easy to remove with the help of near invisible tabs halfway down the mods length, on either side the door.

The top third of the door has six elongated holes in it, backed with metal, with holes drilled in so that every elongated hole has three holes visible inside it, so there are, essentially 18 small battery ventilation holes.

Inside the battery chamber, which takes dual cells, you’ll find the plastic 18650 adaptor already fitted, take it out and you’ll see the where dual 21700s or 20700s can fit nice and snug.

The mod is beautifully ergonomic, if a little on the wide side, in order to make space for those large 21700 cells, side by side. It does, on the bright side, take even the chunkiest 25mm tank with ease.

Geekvape Aero Tank

The Aero tank is black and quite beautiful too, very sleek and minimalist, with no knurling on the bottom airflow adjustment ring…where two massive 15mm slots give this tank its breezy name. They are easy to adjust even without knurling so some good machining from GeekVape, as per usual.blade kit 235w aero exploded

Knurling on the tapered top cap gives away the top fill system, just one small twist to the left and the cap pops off, revealing two huge fill slots. The cap replaces just as easily.

The thick cast, black delrin 810 drip tip sits on a 2mm raised ring, for comfort and heat protection and I had no trouble fitting my other 810 tips, those without 0-rings.

The stainless steel tank breaks down with absolute ease and is excellently machined.

How Does The GeekVape Blade Perform?

The Geekvape Blade mod is not only a looker, it performs like a champion too. I used it with a few of my heavy-loaded RTA’s to test the upper wattage arena and was impressed by the heat distribution and the coolness of this PPS material, even when the mod was being drilled to the max.

With the help of a user manual that’s been printed with rare finesse, I was able to navigate my modes with ease, try out the VPC (variable power curve) mode and navigate the menu system with little confusion.

I found the Temp Control for Ni and SS to be effective and easy to master, as with the VPC mode, which I always like to fiddle with.blade kit 235w vents

I found the compatibility of the mod to be a huge plus, where battery types are concerned. The fact that you can pop in your 20700s when your 21700s go flat, and your 18650s after that, made for some protracted and very enjoyable vaping on this psychedelic setup.

I really like the fire button, for texture, click and effectiveness and while there’s nothing groundbreaking or different in this mod’s full length list of features, the fact that all features work a charm, the ramp is ultra-fast and the mod insanely gorgeous and rugged at the same time, well…these things are enough to make me a happy reviewer.

I really LOVED the Geekvape Aero tank for the first week, until one of the included coils revealed its low lifespan. The tank has such a smooth airflow, is so easy to open and fill and really, I felt the smoothness of the airflow, even when very restricted, the smooth sound and feel, to be very agreeable.

Flavour was excellent, as was cloud but I’ll cover that in more detail in the coils section.

How To Fill The Aero Tank

Stock Coil Performance

My first taste on the installed IM1 coil, even at a conservative 40W was mmmmhhmmmm, freaking delicious. Both coils deliver exceptional flavour and only slightly less exceptional vapour within their given ranges but sadly I found the lifespan of the IM4 coil, the higher wattage coil, to be less than satisfactory, which is a pity.

To be fair though, I would buy these coils again, in spite of the 10 day lifespan, because I know I gave them a run for their money and the flavour was just so excellent!

I later noticed that the IM4 is Ni80, where as the IM1 is Kanthal, so maybe a Kanthal IM4 would have been a better idea, since Ni80 tends to have a slightly diminished lifespan.

While using the IM1- my sweet spot sat around 50W, a rich and flavourful vape with the excellent airflow system on the AERO.

For the IM4, I vaped at a constant 75W…also profound flavour and vapour until, after just more than a week, I started to taste a burn. I intend to give these a thorough rinse and dry, as that often takes care of the burn taste, who knows, maybe I’ll enjoy another week on this IM4 yet.

How To Operate the Menu System

  • 5 Clicks on or off
  • 3 Clicks to access mode system
  • +/- To scroll
  • Hold fire to select
  • Press and hold fire and + or – to adjust brightness

How To Replace The batteriesblade kit 235w battery chamber

  • Pop off the battery cover
  • If using 18650s be sure to use the adaptor
  • Insert batteries according to the mnarkers in the chamber

Battery Life

The green LED on that fire button, and the screen, which is fairly simple, take very little power and I found the battery life to be excellent for 18650s, 20700s and 21700s.

On a high wattage use, say 80-140W, intermittent, dual 2500’s ran for 7 hours, my 3000mAh 20700s, approximately 1.5 hours more and 4000mAh 21700s, just over 2.5 hours more than that. Not too shabby!

Pros

  • Mind-boggling colour options
  • Ergonomic handfeel with a velvety finish
  • Compatible with 3 battery types
  • Totally massive wattage range
  • Excellent battery life
  • Ultra smooth airflow
  • Awesome flavour and cloud on both coil heads
  • Easy tank breakdown

CoilArt Mage RTA V2 Review | This Mage Caused Me Rage

I think this colour slightly edges the black in terms of my preference but that’s entirely subjective.

Design and Build Quality

For all the reasons I liked the Mage subtank – the design, knurling, airflow and ease of refilling – I equally like the Mage RTA V2. There’s nothing further to add, it looks great and feels high quality.Coilart Mage V2 rta with frosted tank

Build Deck

I’m going to focus this review on the deck. It’s very similar in style to the Vandy Vape Kylin Mini with that honeycomb airflow. The Kylin was extremely easy to build on, so I had high hopes, but I was left very disappointed.
Coilart mage v2 rta vs kylinPersonally, I found the Mage RTA V2 to be a bit of a nightmare. Everything about it is fiddly, from trying to fit two coils in without them touching, to the poor-quality grub screws that stripped on the slightest impact and the difficulty in getting the coil legs to connect to the screws and stay in place. This tank is not for the faint-hearted, it requires patience, skill and time.

Perhaps if you’re a seasoned builder this tank doesn’t present the list of challengers that it will for others but I struggled with it immensely.

Let me break-down why:

The post screws hit the coil the wrong way. If you have a flat coil the screw pushes up against it and bends the coil all out of shape. This impacts on positioning. You get the coil in place but the stress that the screws put on the coil legs means that the coil will twist.

It’s extremely difficult to clamp down the coils correctly and even harder getting a second coil in the right position and preventing it from hitting the first.

On the CoilArt website it looks easy.Coilart mage rta v2 dual coil

The reality is different!coilart mage rta 2 build

There’s very little space for two coils, meaning you need the exact right number of wraps, and for the coils to be small in diameter. If you make your own coils maybe this is less of an issue, but if you buy pre-made coils you’ll have to be very particular about what you get.

Trying to get the coils in place and sit straight without touching anything is very difficult. These coils were only 2.5mm in diameter.build on coilart mage 2 rta

How Does CoilArt Mage SubTank Perform?

If you nail the build stage exactly right this is a great vape. The vapour production is insane and the flavour superb. The way the airflow hits the coils is perfect and the design of the chimney means the overall result is an incredibly smooth and flavourful warm vape.coilart mage v2 rta deck and tank

I didn’t experience any leaking and refilling was a breeze. It’s a standout RTA and gives better flavour than others I’ve tried.

Pros:

  • Affordable
  • Easy to unscrew topfill due to grippy knurling
  • Large juice holes
  • Good eliquid capacity
  • Looks good and nice build quality
  • No leaks
  • Bubble glass to increase capacity provided

Cons:

  • Tricky to build – do not underestimate just how tricky!
  • Recommend for advanced builders only

Final Verdict

This is a great looking tank at an affordable price but I really can’t recommend it to anyone who doesn’t have the time, patience, and tools to get it up and running. This tank boils down to one question, is it worth the effort?

For you it might well be, for me it most certainly isn’t. Yes it edges on flavour but not enough for the sheer amount of frustration that goes into installing the coils and this is all down to the screw placement. Had CoilArt taken a leaf out of the Vandy Vape Kylin Mini and designed the screws to come in from the ends rather than the sides it would have made coiling the tank so much easier and, as a result, this would have been a knock-out winner.

Augvape Intake RTA Review – A Mike Vapes Project – So How Did I Take To It?

An Ideal RTA For Those Who Like A VERY Restricted DTL Draw

Augvape and indeed YouTube reviewer Mike Vapes have been knocking it out the park lately and the Augvape Intake RTA is the first collaboration between the two.

AUGVAPE-INTAKE-RTA-reviewThe Intake RTA is a single coil with a unique airflow that for once is indeed unique as we’ll see later.

It’s a crowded single coil RTA market out there with some amazing tanks competing for top spot such as the AvidVape Ghost Inhale and the Vapefly Horus catching our reviewers eye.

So has the clever pipe system bringing the air in from the top to the bottom put this one at the front of the single coil pack?

Let’s take a closer look.

The Intake RTA was sent to me direct from Augvape – thank you – for the purpose of this review and as always my thoughts and opinions are my own.

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

Inside the Box

The usual Augvape tube style packaging rather than a box and inside you’ll find:

  • 1 x Intake RTA
  • 1 x Glass Tube(2ml)
  • 1 x Screwdriver
  • 1 x 510 Adapter
  • 1 x Accessories Bagintake rta contents

Specs and Features

  • Co-designed by Augvape and Mike Vapes
  • 24mm diameter
  • 4.2ml or 2.5ml capacity
  • Top airflow in, bottom airflow out
  • Two-posts deck with open channels for single coils
  • Leak proof design
  • Top fill

Key Features

As the name might suggest the key feature here is the airflow.

What you have is two hollow tubes that ‘intakes’ the air from the top and channels it to the bottom of the tank before bouncing back slamming into the coils on its way up.

intake deck

The design makes this pretty much leak proof – more on that soon – and should do away with the dip in flavour some top airflow RTAs can have – more on flavour later too.

There’s two Cyclops style airflow ports and these are very small and narrow indeed – so a loose airy vape is not something you’ll expect from this one indeed as I’ll show later it’s very restricted.

intake airflow

OK, out of the box this has a 2.5ml e-liquid capacity but this can be switched out using the 4.2ml bubble glass.

Filling is as simple as unscrewing the top cap to reveal two smallish kidney shaped fill ports.

filling intake rta

Despite being a relatively small if a little cramped deck you should have no issues building given both post holes are open at the side making coil placement a doddle.

The RTA also comes with x2 810 drip tips – a rather low profile blue one and a chunkier black one and a 510 adaptor.

intake rta top cap

Do take note the bore from the top cap is very narrow so the width of your drip tip is going to make little if any difference apart from personal comfort.

Design and Build Quality

It’s fair to say Augvape make good looking vape gear – especially their mods such as the V200 and that gorgeous Templar RDA.

The Intake is maybe not as aesthetically pleasing as some RTAs on the market – indeed with the bubble glass on it does look at little clunky – especially with that large knurling on the top cap.

intake rta blue drip tip

Another design feature I don’t particularly like is the exposed gold deck peeping through the bottom of the tank nor do I think the shade of blue on the included drip tip is a particularly nice colour nor does it match the black version I received.

However as you might expect from Augvape those personal niggles aside the build quality is once again first rate.

Whilst the threads like most RTAs out of the box are a little tight they soon loosen up and whilst not silky they are well machined.

The Augvape Intake RTA is put together very well indeed with good machining with quality materials.

How Does the Augvape Intake RTA Perform?

As I’ve already mentioned building on this is a doddle with those open sided post holes making it an absolute breeze to build on.intake rta review

There’s not a lot of room in there and I found having the coil as close the airflow intake as possible gave me the best flavour – and I mean as close as possible without touching the deck!

However and despite this being similar to a Genesis style deck the wicking can be a little tricky.

intake rta wicked

Being such a small deck means you’ll be using smaller coils and my first couple of builds using too much cotton gave me a poor flavour and a couple of dry hits.

The wicking holes are tiny so I was able to pack the coil and feather out the legs giving them room to swell once juiced up without choking them so to speak.

It might take a couple of goes but once you get it right it becomes second nature.

Filling is easy too with a simple bit of pressure on the top cap before a half twist anti-clockwise opens it up – similar to a bayonet fitting.

Flavour and Clouds From the Intake RTA

I have had x3 builds in there and found a 2.5mm Clapton coil around 0.3ohm gave me the best vape and I wicked with FUZZ which I find extremely easy to thin out to fit those tiny wicking ports.

At around 51 to 53w the vape was warm – cloudy and the flavour was good – not stand out but the better side of good.

intake coiled

I’m guessing the decent flavour comes from way the air has been channeled from top to bottom and the tight bore of the top cap.

Speaking of tight this is a restricted direct to lung draw [DTL] even with the air flow control wide open.

Personally I prefer a slightly looser draw however I soon got used to it but bare that in mind if you choose to buy it.

Cloud production will obviously be down to your build/cotton and e-juice – however using an 80/20 PG/VG mix the clouds whilst not spectacular were very good indeed – but for me this has been designed for flavour and whilst not amazing the flavour profile is on point.

Pros

  • Easy to build on
  • Good flavour
  • Good clouds
  • Clever airflow design
  • Leak proof
  • Sturdy
  • Bubble glass included
  • X2 810 drip tips
  • 510 adaptor
  • Decent price
  • Choice of colours: black – stainless steel – blue and gun metal

Cons

  • Very restricted draw
  • Tiny bore despite x2 810 drip tips
  • Wicking can be a little fiddly
  • Looks wise decidedly average
  • Not the best blue for a black drip tip
  • No coils included

Freemax Fireluke Tank Review

Ever wish you could vape on a miniature gumball machine? Well, thanks to the new Freemax Fireluke sub-ohm tank, now you can. But there is more to this device than a bubble glass tube, so I would definitely not refer to it as a simple novelty piece. Performance-wise, the Fireluke has been compared to the popular SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast, so that should tell you a lot about its vapor production capabilities. The massive coil-heads are as impressive as they look, and then there’s the bundled RBA section that lets you build your own coil. This tank may look funny, but it’s no joke!

Freemax-Fireluke

Focus On www.urvapin.com For Best Vape Tanks.

 

A Look at the Contents

The Freemax Fireluke sub-ohm tank comes in a massive cardboard box with a life-size picture of the tank and a flaming background, on the front, and a short description of the device, a list of kit contents and company information, on the back. After seeing the same type of packaging on so many devices these days, the different-looking box for the Fireluke was a breath of fresh air.

Inside the box, we have the tank sitting in a Styrofoam holder, and underneath that we have the accessories. The Fireluke tank comes with a pre-installed 0.15Ω sextuple coil-head, but can also be used with an included RBA base that comes packaged in a nice plastic tube. In the box, you also have a bag of spare parts (o-rings and grub screws for the RBA base), as well as a couple of large stapled coils for the RBA base, a small screwdriver, some Japanese organic cotton, and a smaller glass tube, in case the large bubble pre-installed on the tank doesn’t appeal to you. This smaller tube makes the Fireluke less conspicuous, but a reduced juice capacity of 4 ml. Finally, Freemax have also thrown in a user manual, in case you have no experience with sub-ohm tanks and need to learn the basics. Otherwise, the tank has a simple and intuitive design, so you shouldn’t have a need for the manual.

Freemax-Fireluke-tank

Freemax has put together a really great package for the Fireluke. The tank itself and the included coil-head are more than worth the $29.99 price tag, but you also get a bonus RBA base, which allows you to use your own builds and save money on coil-heads. That’s probably why most manufacturers don’t include RBA sections in their tank kits, but Freemax do, and they deserve praise for it.

Design and Build Quality

One thing you ca definitely say about the Freemax Fireluke is that it looks different than most of the other tanks on the market today. That alone is a big pro in my opinion, but I’m also digging the gumball machine look. That said, I know for a fact that a lot of vapers think it’s downright ugly, and that’s ok, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Fireluke-fill-ports

Just so you know, though, that rounded glass tube serves a practical purpose. As any knowledgeable vaper will tell you, the close the atomization chamber is to your mouth, the better flavor you’ll get. The more vapor has to travel through the shaft before it reaches your mouth, the more muted the flavor. So what Freemax have done was make both the shaft and the glass section shorter and bulkier, to improve the flavor. If they hadn’t gone wide with the glass section, they would have ended up with lower e-liquid capacity.

That compromise also has a downside, however. You’ve probably figured it out already, just by looking at the tank, but I’m going to mention it anyway, just to be sure. Glass tanks are fragile by nature, so if you drop your mod on a hard surface, there’s a big chance you’ll crack the glass. With the Fireluke, you’ll almost definitely break it. This tank is advertised as 25 mm in diameter, but that’s only at the base. Around the glass section, it’s actually 32 mm in diameter, so it will overhang on virtually any mod. Even if you so much as accidentally knock down your device on a table, the tank will be the first thing to make contact. To be honest, the 5 ml glass tube that comes pre-installed on the Firelook feels thick and solid, but it’s still just glass. You just have to be extra careful with it is all I’m saying.

Freemax-Fireluke-drip-tip

Focus On www.urvapin.com For Best Vape Tanks.

 

The bubble glass section isn’t the only noteworthy design element of the Freemax Fireluke. It also comes in two variants – stainless steel and resin coating, with the latter being my personal favorite. I’m currently using the stainless steel version – which comes in silver and black – but that’s only because I’m saving the resin one for my collection. It’s just looks too damn special to risk damaging. The resin variant comes in a variety of colors, or primary colors, to be more precise, as every one of them is actually a mix of different colors.

The Freemax Fireluke measures 54 mm in length, 25 mm in diameter at the base, and 32 mm at its widest point, around the large glass tube. The drip tip on the stainless steel version is nothing to write home about. It’s basically a black wide bore sleeve-like tip sitting on a protruding metal shaft. The good news is that you can fit a standard 510 drip tip in that shaft, but the bad news is that it’s not going to look very well. The shaft has a couple of white silicone o-ring on the outside to keep the sleeve drip tip in place, and because the kit doesn’t come with a beauty ring, those o-rings remain visible with a 510 drip tip. There’s also no option for those 810 Goon-style drip tip, which is a subjective con. Same thing with the resin model, but at least those sleeves look good by default.

Fireluke-pin

The Fireluke has a convenient top filling system. Just unscrew the metal top cap to reveal two massive fill ports that actually allow you to pir the juice in straight from the bottle, without making a mess. Then we have the masive coil-head or RBA section – whichever you prefer – and at the base, we have two large airflow slots with which come with a metal stopper, making it easier to unscrew the base, should you need to. These are some of the largest slots I’ve ever seen on a tank, so if you’re worried about airflow, don’t be. Finally, on the base, we have a gold-plated adjustable 510 pin.

As I said in the beginning, I’m a fan of the gumball machine design of the Freemax Fireluke, and the build quality is right up there with the best of them. Apart from the lack of drip tip options, I really don’t have anything bad to say about it.

Setting Up

I recommend washing any tank before using it for the first time, but that goes double for the Freemax Fireluke. I saw a bit of leftover machining oil in the base of the tank and in the cover of the RBA section, so make sure you rinse it under warm water, before wiping the parts with a paper napkin.

Freemax-Fireluke-parts

If you plan on using this tank only with coil-heads, setting up is very simple. All you need to do is make sure that you drop some juice onto the cotton wicking before you fill up the tank, to make sue it’s saturated. Also, leave it for a good 15 minutes after filling it, to allow the cotton to absorb all the juice it needs.

The RBA section requires a bit more work, but if you’ve ever used a rebuildable atomizer before, it should be no trouble to work with. Luckily, Freemax opted for a classic Velocity style deck, so mounting your coils is about as easy as it gets. Make sure you save that flat head screwdriver included in the kit, because the grub screws on the side of the posts are really tiny, and more screwdrivers won’t fit.

Freemax-bubble-tank

Focus On www.urvapin.com For Best Vape Tanks.

 

Once your coils are mounted and wicked, add a few drops of juice, put the tank back together and fill it up. I recommend you don’t stick too much cotton into the juice well of the RBA deck, because you need to leave some room for the e-liquid to come in from the tank. When it comes to wicking, I believe less is more, so don’t overdo it with the cotton.

How It Vapes

When I first heard the comparisons to the SMOK TFV8, I honestly thought people were exaggerating, but after having used the Freemax Fireluke for over two weeks, I can confirm that this tank really is all that and more.

The gumball machine design is meant to enhance flavor, but that wouldn’t count for much if the coils and RBA section sucked. That’s not the case here. I only got to test the sextuple coil-head pre-installed in the tank, but it has been performing like a champ so far, and it’s still got some life left in it. I’ve been using it with some sweet sugar cookie juice I made myself, but after two weeks, the flavor is still nice and clean, with no burnt taste whatsoever.

Freemax-Fireluke-coil-head

The beefy sextuple coil-head has a recommended wattage range of 60W – 140W, so you just have to find your sweet spot. For me, that’s 85W, but it does feel like it could handle a lot more. I don’t feel the need to go over 100W, though as the vapor production is more than enough at 85W. The vapor is nice and warm and the flavor is amazing for this style of tank, definitely much better than that of the TFV8.

Unfortunately, if you’re a fan of temperature control vaping, Freemax doesn’t have any options available right now. The Fireluke currently has four coil-head options, all of which are made with kanthal wire. That only leaves the RBA section, which can work just as well, if you wick it properly, but hopefully the Chinese company will also have some stainless steel coil-heads available soon. I’m a variable wattage vaper myself, so this isn’t a big deal, but temp. control fans may consider this a big con.

As much as I’ve been enjoying the sextuple coil-head, the RBA section is definitely the star of this kit. It just opens up so many options, and if you wick it properly, the performance is outstanding. And don’t even get me started on how much money you can save by only purchasing cheap wire and quality cotton.

If you’ve ever used a SMOK TFV8 tank, or any of the big TFV tanks, you know how much juice they need in order to produce those giant plumes of vapor. Well, at over 100W, the Fireluke is a pretty thirsty tank as well, but luckily the coil-heads work well at lower wattage levels, so you get decent clouds without having to use gallons of juice. That’s a big pro.

Fireluke-bubble-tank

I’ve had no leaking issues with the Freemax Fireluke. In fact, those bottom airflow holes are as dry as the desert, there’s not even a condensation droplet visible in there, so it’s safe to say that Freemax have done a great job insulating this tank. The only con I can think of is the strange whistling sound the tank makes when vaping with the airflow slots wide open, which isn’t all that surprising considering how large they are. But close them up halfway and the sound goes away, and you still have plenty of airflow.

Conclusion

A lot of people had written Freemax out after they stopped producing anything for a very long time, but the Fireluke tank is proof that they still have what it takes to take on big companies in the vaping industry. This goofy-looking tanks is more than just a simple novelty. It’s definitely one of the best sub-ohm tanks I’ve used in a while, and it comes with an RBA section, which is a huge advantage over most of the competitors in its category. For $29.99, this miniature gumball machine is a steal, and I wholeheartedly recommend you give it a try, even if the form factor put you off. There’s a purpose to it, and it more than makes up in performance.

Recently, this company is intensely storming the niche of atomizers production, and, it should be noted, this is going out very well for them. Already even managed to form a small assortment. 

It would seem that everything is fine, but the soul asks for something else. And the developers started directly for boxmodes. And we decided to start with the mechanical single Coil Master Crius Mech Mod .

Over the design of the pilot mehmoda, many nights have been plastered, invented, and debated. And I must admit, the fur came out pretty interesting. Perhaps, for someone it will seem too pretentious, but, I think, most will like it.

The main part of the “exterior” is the band around the corner of the ring, on which the relief name of the manufacturer flaunts. Acrylic sink is executed in black-burgundy flowing into each other tones. By the way, it consists of two halves, which are separated by the aforementioned ring.

End sites are made equal in thickness and quite organically crown the pipe from both sides. They are marked by shallow risks for ease of unscrewing. All elements, including the pipe, are made of brass with subsequent application of gilding, which also adds points to the “final bow”.

What do we have on the constructive. The connector is hybrid with several notches in a circle. The carving of the landing pad is not small and not very long, which is good. Unfortunately, it is not possible to estimate the thickness of the pipe walls.

The button is magnetic, with a non-permanent contact, which means – hello black dots. Sadly, of course, but on the other hand, now in the vast majority of mehmods used a similar construct. In addition, do not forget that this is the “culinary” debut of the company, and for the pilot product, it is still very good.

Holes for the removal of gases are located at the edges of the surface of the button. Here, by tradition, there is a relief logo of the manufacturer. According to the developers, the contact is made of copper.

The price is 46 $. Probably, all the same it is expensive, similar on a design of the device are offered much more cheaply. It turns out that you are overpaying only for appearance, i.e. pay off that part of the money that was spent on design. Yes, I almost forgot, the cost is still sitting case. I agree, it’s a very convenient thing, I use it myself.
