Bellerophon RTA is a single-helix giant with a convenient base. Did not expect from Wismec?

Recently, the guys from Wismec somehow concentrated on starting sets and different AIO (like many other manufacturers). But a couple of days ago I learned about a new atomizer, which became a real surprise for me. So, meet the novelty with an unpronounceable name – Bellerophon .

Honestly, I do not remember when I last saw the tank from this manufacturer. A lot of non-services will not be considered – everything is done according to the template and there is no talk about the designers’ work. So, there is nothing to compare by design. We will assume, Wismecpersuaded their designers to do something interesting. My personal opinion is that the tank is just a space.

I do not even know what it was I liked so much. At first sight you understand that the tank is non-standard. But what is it to understand this complicated. Maybe it’s a beautiful image of a horse’s head? It turned out such an armored car with unusual shapes and a small “belly”. It should also be taken into account that the dimensions of the novelty are serious, so you can not screw it to stealth boxes: D

Specifications :

Unfortunately, I can not say that the technical guys showed some innovations. Rather, it looks as if the management thought about what they do not already have in the assortment and, as a result, a single-spiral tank appeared. Well, if you do not grumble, you can understand that the public now is just such things and are interested, soBellerophon exactly appeared at the right time.

So, before us is a tank designed for one spiral. According to the manufacturer, everything was done to ensure that the process of installing the coil was as convenient as possible. In fact, we already get to know all the base on two racks with one screw in each of them. The legs are built on the side, and I have to admit that this is really convenient. As for the size of the spiral, then, as it seems to me, there certainly will not have to be limited.

Blowing also should not shock anyone. In the evaporation chamber, air comes from two slots, the width of which is adjusted by turning the ring. To the spiral, the air flows through the slots in the racks themselves. I have tried this decision many times, both on tanks and on drippers, and I can not say that the taste was very pleasing. Let’s see what will happen in this case 🙂

From the tank of 27 mm just do not want to expect a problem with frequent refueling. But in this respect Wismec bit upset me. Fully refilled can contain only 4 ml of liquid. Even the use of bubble glass did not help. It’s a shame, but oh well. The holes for filling in the old manner were located under the top cover – unscrewed, filled, twisted.

SMOK Rolo Badge Kit Review – Curious Design So How Does It Vape?

smok rolo badge kit review

Rolo Badge By SMOK – A Vape Design Crime Or A Thing Of Vaping Beauty?

SMOK has burst onto the pod vaping scene with the recent release of the FIT kit the Infinix and now the SMOK Rolo Badge which we’re taking a look at in this review.

Looking very similar to the Asvape Defender the Rolo Badge is predominantly marketed towards the vaping beginners given it’s a simple to use mouth to lung (MTL) kit.

Its design is going to be a bone of contention and pretty much everyone who has seen me using it are split 50-50 between ‘love it’ and ‘hate it’.

As to what I think of it you’ll have to wait and see

smok rolo badge in hand

OK this was sent to me free of charge for the purpose of review and as always my thoughts and opinions are my own.

So would I NOT give you my last Rolo or am I more than happy for the DA to take my Badge and gun [why is that said in every cop movie lol]?

Let’s take a closer look.

Inside the Box

Your usual SMOK packaging with a pull off sleeve and inside you’ll find:

  • 2 x Smok Rolo Badge 2ml Pods
  • 1 x eLiquid Injection Bottle
  • 1 x USB Cable
  • 1 x User Manual

SMOK Rolo Badge Specs

  • Height: 7.2cm (2.8″)
  • Width: 5.0cm (2.0″)
  • Depth: 1.5cm (0.6″)
  • Weight: 62g
  • 250mAH internal battery
  • 2ml capacity

Key Features

There’s no getting away from it the keyest of features of this Pod Mod is the design and we’ll get onto that shortly.

OK under the shall we say interesting design of the SMOK Rolo Badge lies a 250mAH internal battery with a power range of between 10 and 16 watts meaning this is mouth to lung device [MTL].

The pods have a wattage range of 7 and 12watts but no sign of the actual resistance though they are probably 1.0 ohm plus.

There’s no buttons or menus and the Rolo is breath activated – inhale and so long as there’s sufficient battery life left you’ll get a hit.

SMOK has added a couple of safety features namely an 8 second cut off [like the Infinix] – low voltage and short circuit protection.

You get a couple of the 2ml refillable pods and packs of 3 can be bought as an extra.

SMOK Rolo Badge Kit Quick Start Guide

  • Make sure device is charged
  • Open rubber bung/s on pod to fill with e-liquid
  • Slide into the battery
  • Wait 10 minutes for the e-liquid to soak into the coils
  • Inhale to vape

LED Lights

  • Light will flash x5 times when vaping over 8 seconds and shut off
  • Light will flash x4 times if short circuit detected and shut down
  • Device will flash x15 when low voltage is detected and shut down
  • When vaping LED stays solid

NOTE: just like the Infinix SMOK says after a time condensation can gather on both the pod and battery connectors – simply wipe dry.

Design and Build Quality

Now I’m pretty sure this like the Defender Kit from Asvape will split the world of vaping into the likes and intently dislikes.

Build wise I really can’t fault it and far from the plasticcy pound store toy feel I was expecting I was pleasantly surprised at just how sturdy and well put together it is, especially given the price.

The pods slide in nicely enough but there’s no satisfying click so do make sure they are snugly in place although a magnet does keep it secure and I have had no rattling or leakage at all.

OK to the design.

I don’t like it – not one little bit.

I’ve used the word ‘toy’ already and to me that is exactly what it looks like and to some extent feels like.

This is definitely one to keep away from the kids.

What I will say is unlike the Asvape Defender – which I haven’t used but have watched more than a few reviews – the Rolo is it’s fair to say very comfortable on the lips.

Filling is easy enough if a little fiddly and if you’re a little too generous with the juice it will leak everywhere so less is more.

smok rolo badge re-filling

The pod has x2 rubber gaskets to open to be able to fill I have opened both and just one and had no issues filling either way.

And just like the Infinix I do recommend using the supplied 10ml needle point bottle to re-fill as it’s less messy and handy for taking out an about – though saying that as you can see I had no issues using standard e-liquid nozzles.

smok rolo refill bottle

It’s available in a wide range of colours however I have to say the gold version I received is an absolute fingerprint magnet.

The colourful resin shield with the SMOK logo on the front is a nice design feature but you do instinctively press it thinking it’s the fire button – or at least this old fool did and still does lol.

How Does the SMOK Rolo Badge Perform?

Look this is a relatively low powered pod device so vaping on the Rolo Badge isn’t going to be the best of experiences.

Having used more than a few pod kits I would say the flavour isn’t that good and the vapour is let’s say passable.

I’m struggling to explain what I mean about the inhale on this – it feels raggedy or turbulent if you catch my drift – certainly not the smoothest of vapes let’s put it that way.

smok rolo stealthy

I have used a 50/50 VG PG and it wicked very well indeed however it really doesn’t like higher VG juices at all, struggling to wick.

As to Nic Salts my apologies as I have run out so can’t comment.

However it is very comfortable on the lips and battery life is very good indeed as is the juice use – the 2mls does last a long time at those sort of wattage.

As a regular MTL vaper I wouldn’t buy this as even a back-up device as the vape quality for me personally just isn’t good enough.


  • Good build quality
  • Simple to use
  • Decent battery life
  • Comfortable on the lips
  • Refillable
  • X2 empty pods included
  • Pass through vaping [vape whilst charging]


  • Not a smooth vape
  • Design is subjective
  • Poor flavour
  • Pricey
  • Fingerprint magnet


Full In-depth review of the OBS Cheetah 2 and mini RDA

In-depth Review of the OBS Cheetah 2 and Cheetah 2 Mini RDA

Black version of the OBS Cheetah 2
The OBS Cheetah 2 (24mm) and Cheetah 2 Mini (22mm) RDA tanks are just right for users who love the ritual of prepping and juicing to get the best-tasting vape and variety possible. They don’t have the convenient e-juice reservoirs of RTA’s like Digiflavor Pilgrim GTA and OBS’s Crius RDTA, and RDA’s require the user to prep the cotton with e-juice before vaping. RDA’s usually operate at higher power levels than RTA’s to ensure monumental clouds of juicy vapor.

Focus On For Best Vape Tanks.

OBS Cheetah 2 Mini in silver

The OBS Cheetah 2 Up Close And Personal

The Cheetah 2 and Cheetah 2 Mini look similar except for the 2mm difference in diameter and a small price difference. The base diameter is 24mm (or 22mm for the Cheetah 2 Mini), and the total size is 24mm × 34mm for the Cheetah2 and 22mm × 35.5mm for the Cheetah2 Mini.

There are four colors, but the gold and blue versions are scarce. You should get hold of the black or silver versions with ease. The base of each unit is engraved with two rather bellicose Cheetahs facing each other down – epic! The 304 stainless steel and all machined parts are smooth, and the double O-threads have a tight fit.

Airflow Advantage

The Cheetah 2 features an improved dual airflow system compared to the original OBS Cheeta RDA. The internal airflow hole is adjustable so that you can switch between concentrated flavor and building cumulus clouds, similar to the SMOK TFV12 Beast Tank. The external airflow slot is now on the side, so the air moves directly over the heated coil. This concentrates the flavor, and you’ll definitely taste the difference!

Houston, There’s No Tank

Although many vapers love the convenience of atomizer tanks, there’s just something about vaping with an RDA that reminds one of riding a vintage Harley Davidson. It’s just the ‘genuine article.’ However, for more convenience with your ‘retro’ experience, OBS has opted for extra user convenience with a generous 6mm deep juice well.

You can prep your vape by either pushing the top cover aside to drip the best e-liquid you can find into the well under the deck, or just drip e-juice down the wide bore drip tip. The easy to clean PEI drip tip (I first thought it was Ultem) provides exceptional heat resistance for a comfortable vape at high wattage. As a bonus, if you have a Goon-style 810 drip tip, you’ll be able to use it with the Cheeta II.

Decking It Out

The build deck on the OBS Cheetah 2If I had to pick the most outstanding feature of this RDA, it’s the brand new two-post build deck. To start with, the 20mm deck diameter (18mm for the Cheetah 2 Mini) is roomy enough for large coil builds and fits perfect on all the best vape mods. Secondly, each post deck consists of a clamp mechanism on one terminal, but conventional flathead screws at the top on the other terminal. This combines the classic feel of an RDA with a more secure clamp system for the contact points. The coil insertion hole on each terminal and the gap on each bottom clamp post hole is very generous, and the bottom clamp holes can accept special flat coil builds. As a result, there is plenty of room for complex configurations and large coil structures. We personally used Clapton Coils on it and it was perfect!



  • The OBS Cheetah 2 and Cheetah 2 Mini Boxes6mm well capacity and easy refill via the drip tip
  • PEI drip tip is easy to clean, and the Cheetah2 is compatible with 810 drip tips
  • Super-easy build and wicking thanks to the clever staggered post design
  • Room and opportunity for unusual and large deck builds
  • Clamp system provides security for the contact points
  • Flavor combined with super clouds
  • It’s an easy introduction to deck building for newer users.


The improved airflow provides a flavor fest at high wattage – performance which only an RDA can give you. Newcomers, who are use to some of the best e cigarettes and want to try advanced vaping, and flavor chasers will absolutely love the simplicity of deck building and the range of options they will have. If you enjoy experimenting with flavors but have been hesitant about trying your hand at building your own deck, this is your RDA!
