COIL ART DPRO 133 KIT REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

Nice packaging, it comes in a box with some Coilart branding on it and a cardboard sleeve. Remove the sleeve and open the box to reveal your mod and your RDA. On the left side of the box is where you will find your mod and on the right side is where you will find the RDA. One thing that I’m impressed about so far, is they included some really nice Ni80 Clapton coils and some cotton in the packaging.

First impression is, this is a good-looking, stealthy, little, dual battery kit. It looks like it goes well together and it feels good in the hand. It looks very simple as well. I’m going to mount some coils in the RDA, load up some batteries, and see how this thing actually performs.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • One Coil Art DPRO 133 Box Mod
  • One Coil Art DPRO RDA
  • ULTEM Deck Spacer
  • Spare Parts Pack and Bottom Feed Pin
  • One Pair Prebuilt Fused Clapton Coils
  • Allen Key

Coil Art Dpro 133 Kit Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

THE MOD:

This is an unregulated protected device. That means the more you vape on it, the less power it is going to have. It does have some protections built into it like a low voltage protection, so once the voltage gets to low, it will not fire. Thats a nice feature because it ensures it will not put too much strain on your batteries. Coilart has been marketing it as a semi regulated mod. Nevertheless, this mod is still for experienced builders only. You must have a working knowledge of Ohm’s Law before you purchase this kit. I would also recommend that you keep your builds around .2 ohms.

Coil Art Dpro 133 Kit Review

The Dpro mod is a very simple device and there really isn’t a lot to it. There is a screen on top of the device that has four blue dots. Each dot represents 25% of battery life. Obviously, if you have four dots that are lit up, that means that you are at 100%. If you have three dots lit up, that means that you are at 75%, and so on and so forth.

The fire button is located right below the screen and it is rectangular in shape. It is raised off the surface of the mod and it does have a bit of a rattle to it. I would have definitely liked to have seen a tighter fire button. It also has a tinny type of feel to it and I just think Coilart could have done a much better job on the button. There is some Coilart branding on the button.

Coil Art Dpro 133 Kit Review

On the top plate of the mod right across from the screen is where you will find the 510 connection for this mod. The 510 connection is gold plated and spring-loaded. It has a stainless steel circular shaped plate going around it. The 510 pin has a nice firm spring to it, with a pretty decent throw. Threading around the 510 is very smooth but some of my atomizers do gap on this mod, including the included Dpro RDA. I’m pretty sure that’s why they included an Ultem disc, in order to fill in that gap. You can run the disc with other atomizers if you want to and it will probably take care of the gapping issue. The Ultem disc also helps dissipate heat. The Mod will hold 24 mm atomizers with no overhang. The plate of the mod is held in place by 4-star screws.

Coil Art Dpro 133 Kit Review

The rest of the mod is just a rectangular shaped mod with curved edges to it. There is some subtle Coilart branding on one side of the mod but the overall construction of it is very nice. The mod is made out of mostly aluminum with an anodized paint job. It does feel really nice in the hand and the paint has held up quite well.
On the bottom of the mod, there is some Coilart and Dpro branding on the battery door. Surprisingly, there really is no visible venting on this mod. I would have definitely liked to have seen some sort of venting, especially for an unregulated device. Open the battery door by pushing down and pulling out. Once the battery door is open, you will see two gold-plated, button-style battery contacts. The battery contacts are clearly labeled for the negative posts of your batteries.

Coil Art Dpro 133 Kit Review

This mod does run your batteries in parallel. Batteries are to be installed positive side first. It also has reverse polarity protection just in case you make a mistake. Inside the battery tubes, you will find two, gold-plated, spring loaded, contacts. The sides of the tubes are made out of plastic, just in case one of your battery wraps has a tear. While this mod does take dual 18650 batteries, if you want to you can run it with just one battery, you can. It’s a nice little feature but I really don’t see why you would only put one battery in it, when you have the choice of actually using two.

I have seen some sites list a USB charge port on the listing for this kit. The kit that I have does not have a USB charge port. If it’s there, I can’t find it. The mod does measure in at a stealthy 84.5mm by 44mm by 28mm.

THE RDA:

Coil Art Dpro 133 Kit Review

The Dpro RDA comes with a very thick Goon style drip tip. The inner diameter is nowhere near as wide as the outer diameter of the drip tip. It is a comfortable drip tip and I’m sure, having a smaller inner diameter definitely increases the flavor a bit. It is not the short chuff style DT that a lot of today’s RDA’s come with. This one has some length to it and I have to say that I really have been enjoying it. One con, there is no 510 drip tip adapter in the kit. I’m sure you could use some other 510 drip tip adapters, but I would have liked to have seen one included in this kit. There is also only one drip tip included in the kit as well. That’s just not going to cut it in today’s market. Every other company includes multiple drip tips. I don’t see why Coilart couldn’t do that.

The 510 opening on the combination top cap barrel has a nice thick o’ring on the interior. The stock drip tip fits nice and snug and so will all of your other aftermarket Goon style drip tips. The barrel and top cap are all one piece and there is some Coilart branding on one side of the barrel but it is black on black and very subtle. The interior of the top cap does have a slight conical design towards the top of it. There are two airflow holes located on each side of the barrel. Each air flow hole measures to 4.5 mm and it coincides with the two airflow holes on the deck. The airflow holes are oval in shape and fully adjustable.

The base of the RDA has two o’rings that do an Ok job of keeping the barrel in place. In between the two o’rings is where you will have access to your deck screws. This is a postless deck and the deck screws are accessed from the side of the base. The deck screws are hex screws and of nice quality. On the bottom of the base, there is some Dpro branding as well as some Coilart branding. The 510 on the bottom of the base has a Phillips head slot on it but you can also get it out with a flathead screwdriver. There is an insulator ring around the 510. The whole base is gold plated including the threading. The threading around the 510 is very smooth but this atomizer does gap on this mod if you do not use the included Ultem disc. When I have used the Dpro on other mods without the disc, there has been no gapping.

Coil Art Dpro 133 Kit Review

Another thing I have to give Coilart a lot of credit for is that they did include a squonking pin. The reason I give them a lot of credit for that is because this kit has no squonking capability, yet they did include the pin. That’s a plus in my book. I have used this particular RDA as a squonker and it does perform very well.
One really annoying thing about this RDA is the fact that the o’rings could be a little tighter. The top cap seems to spin quite freely especially if you over tighten it on a mod a little bit. Yet, the top cap does not come off too easily. Sometimes, you actually have to take the barrel off of the RDA and twist just the deck section in order to get it off a mod. That’s an annoying feature and I really wish they would have tightened up the o’rings.

The whole deck of the Dpro RDA is gold plated and postless. It’s got a decent juice well that measures in at 3 mm but I would have liked to have seen one just a little deeper. On the sides of the deck, it has two posts coming out, on the outer circumference that have an oval shaped air holes cut into them. This is the shape that lines up with the oval shaped air holes on your barrel. It looks like the airflow hole is drilled downward, so it hits your coil directly. So far, the airflow has been extremely smooth and I have to say that I have been enjoying this RDA.

The postless deck is well done and it can accommodate some decent-sized coils. The post holes are not as big as I would have liked them to be and running some big flat wire builds can be a problem. The post holes measure 2.5 mm each. This deck is really set up for Clapton coils being the biggest types of coils you could probably run in it. That’s not due to the size of the deck but more because of the limitation of the post holes.

Coil Art Dpro 133 Kit Review

One really nice feature about this RDA is the fact that Coilart precut the coils that they included in the package. They cut them the perfect length for this postless deck. So, when you first get this RDA in this kit, you do not have to spend time figuring out what the proper length the leads should be for this deck. I’ll give you a pro tip, if you want to cut your leads to the perfect length every time, all you have to do is measure your leads up against your drip tip and cut them right where the Dpro branding ends on the drip tip. Do this, and every time, your leads will be the perfect length.

Once your coils are mounted, if you are running contact coils, you can pulse them to get the hot spots out. After that procedure is done, wicking this is very simple because it’s a postless deck. Simply pull your wicking material through the coil and make sure that when you cut it your wicking material, it touches the bottom of the deck.

Like I said before, I have had this RDA for quite some time and that has given me the opportunity to run a lot of different builds in it. While this is a dual coil RDA, I have found that it actually excels in single coil mode. I like running one big coil in the middle of the deck and I feel like this RDA vapes beautifully that way.
Right now, I have dual stainless steel Clapton’s in there ohming out at .17 ohms. I have them on top of the Dpro mod that’s included in the kit and I get a really nice vape off of it. The clouds are really nice and the flavor for this RDA is just on point. The airflow is extremely smooth and when I cut it down about half way, you can definitely feel the flavor intensify. I have really been enjoying the smooth airflow that this RDA produces.

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

Coil Art Dpro 133 Kit Review

I have to say, I really do enjoy the simple understated look of the Dpro Kit. It’s a small no nonsense kit that is very easy to carry and also extremely pocketable. I like the fact that this is a simple mod and there is no over complicated menu system. I click the fire button 5 times and I can put this whole kit in my pocket with no worries. I also like the fact that I get a mechanical mod type of experience but I also have some protections built in. The kit comes in a bunch of really nice colors and I have to say that aesthetically, it is very pleasing. It also has some pretty good build quality to it as well. The anodized finish has held up really well.

THE BOARD:

The Dpro has a non-variable chipset in it that is capable of 133 watts. It has a maximum voltage output of 4.2 volts and it will fire down as low as .08 ohms. Honestly, I would not recommend firing this mod that low. It also has an on-off capability. I would classify this mod as unregulated with some protections.

THE MENU SYSTEM:

  • Click the fire button 5 times to turn the mod on or off.

HOW DOES IT VAPE:

When I first got this kit, I was not sure how I would like it because it just looked way too simple. Sometimes though, the simple things in life are better. I have to admit, I have been enjoying using this kit for quite a few weeks now. It vapes really well and it fires instantly. I like the battery life that I have been getting when I use this mod. I also like the flavor and clouds that the RDA is capable of producing.

I’m not sure if this mod is actually hitting the full hundred 133 watts. I don’t have the equipment to do all of that testing and I normally go by how the vape feels. That is really hard to do in a case like this, because of the fact that the mod is unregulated. I have vaped multiple builds that I have put on this mod at 133 watts on other regulated mods just for comparison. It really doesn’t feel as strong as it did on the regulated mods. I’m thinking that this mod is hitting right around at 100 watts, maybe even a little less. However, my findings are very unscientific, so please keep that in mind

WHAT WOULD MAKE IT BETTER:

  • Ohm Reader
  • Some Venting

I would have really liked to have seen Coilart include an ohm reader on the screen. It’s not a big deal, but before I put something on this mod, I have to first check it either on another mod or one of my ohm readers. I would have rather had a feature like that on the screen, so I can see what my RDA is doing. It would have also been very convenient.

If you are going to build a mod like this, I really do believe you have to have some sort of battery venting. I was a little surprised that there is no battery venting present and I definitely would have liked to have seen some.

CONCLUSION:

I like this kit a lot more than I thought I would when I first received it. It actually vapes really well and the RDA included is a good one. It’s a nice stealthy kit that seems to be well built. It does have a lot of nagging little issues that probably could have been addressed if Coilart was paying more attention. You’re probably going to see a decent amount of cons in the cons section and that’s unfortunate. The cons aren’t really deal-breakers but they have to be listed because there are quite a few little, nagging things wrong with this kit.

The shame of it is, those little things, really don’t affect the overall enjoyment of the kit but they should have been corrected before this mod was brought to market. Fortunately, the overall vape quality outweighs all those nagging little cons, Overall, I really do like the kit, I just wish Coilart would have taken more care, before they released it. If you are looking for that mechanical mod type of experience with some protections, this kit is really tough to beat.

Innokin iTaste Kroma-A Kit review

Innokin iTaste Kroma-A Kit

The Innokin iTaste Kroma-A Kit offers a 75W TC capable device and also includes the Axiom M21 Sub-Ohm Tank. It is extremely compact just like the original Kroma which I reviewed.

Featuring Innokin’s reliable and accurate Aethon chipset the Kroma-A is supports all major wire types. So let’s take a good look and see what it has to offer!

Innokin iTaste Kroma-A Kit features

  • Zinc Alloy Construction.
  • Innokin Aethon Chipset.
  • Battery: 2000mAh Built-in.
  • Maximum Output: 75W.
  • Charging: Micro USB 2A.
  • TC Mode: with Ni, Ti, SS316L.
  • Ultra Compact Design.
  • Numerous Safety Features.

Innokin Axiom Tank

  • 2ml Capacity.
  • Fully Adjustable Airflow.
  • Top Filling Design.
  • Pyrex Glass.
  • Stainless Steel Construction.

What’s in the box?

  • 1 x iTaste Kroma-A 75W TC Mod.
  • 1 x Innokin Axiom M21 Tank.
  • 1 x 0.8 Ohm Kanthal BVC (pre-installed).
  • 1 x 0.5 Ohm SS316L Coil (Spare).
  • 1 x Micro USB Charging Cable.
  • Spare O-rings.
  • Spare Tank Glass.
  • 510 Drip Tip Adapter.
  • Vape Band.
  • Stickers.
  • Warranty Card.
  • Battery Safety Card.
  • User Manual.

The packaging is really well done and the box opens into two compartments, one holding the mod and tank, with the other including all the accessories.

Innokin iTaste Kroma-A Kit styling and build quality

The overall design of the Kroma-A is highly compact and very much like the original Kroma device I covered. One major difference is that the tank now sits on top of the device itself and is no longer housed in a recess and loses the old 510 connector adapter. This means that the Kroma-A is now far more compatible with other atomizers you might want to use from your collection. Anything up to 24mm diameter will tend to look good but be aware that 25mm will result in some slight overhang.

Another difference is that the paint scheme is done in one primary colour (red, blue and black) and features black inlays. While it does look good I actually prefer the original Kroma’s look because the white, black and red scheme seemed far more modern and striking, but personal taste varies greatly amongst users.

What is nice is the lovely textured grip which means you the device is highly unlikely to ever slip out of you hand. Ergonomically the Kroma-A feels extremely comfortable, lightweight but also quite robust and well balanced.

The 510 connector is made from Stainless Steel so it should last a good amount of time. The 510 pin is springy, has a nice amount of travel to it, feels well fitted and the various atomizers I tried from my collection all fitted flush.

Just like the original Kroma the display features a dark screen protector, which unfortunately dims the information to such a degree that it can be tricky to read in bright light. All of the typical things you’d expect to see are shown including Resistance, Wattage, Temperature; as well as Voltage and the current battery life.

There are three buttons on the device and all of them are well fitted and thankfully rattle free. In addition they are all highly responsive and have a good feel to them.

The device comes fully charged up and is fitted with a 2000mAh capacity internal battery. This should last you a fairly good amount of vape time between charges.

Like other Innokin devices the main fire button has an LED positioned behind it which changes colour according to the current charge of the battery. It starts at green, changes to orange and when it glows red it’s time to recharge.

There is no venting on the device, but since it only goes up to 75W maximum output and is loaded with safety features it isn’t really a concern. The Micro USB port is fitted horizontally nicely below the minus adjustment button, which means you can stand the device upright while charging.

Included in the box is the Axiom M21 Tank which is pre-fitted with a 0.8ohm Kanthal coil. In addition the spare Stainless Steel 316 coil can be used in Variable Wattage or Temperature Control Mode. The tank is extremely compact has fully adjustable airflow and a top filling design. It features two thick O-rings to keep the glass in place. The Delrin drip tip/top cap is tapered and feels comfortable on the lips, but if you don’t want to use it a 510 drip tip adapter is included in the box, as is spare glass for the tank.

If you don’t live in the EU or if you decide to order from elsewhere, keep in mind the kit includes the Crios Tank instead of the Axiom.

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

Ease of use

The Kroma-A works just like most Innokin devices. The manual is very well set out and everything is explained in an easy to understand way.

  • Three clicks switches the device on/off. The LED positioned behind the fire button lights up and also alerts you to the current level of the battery.
  • To change the Wattage or Temperature hold down the plus button for 2 seconds until the display flashes, then adjust the setting with the plus or minus buttons.

As far as the Axiom Tank goes I didn’t really enjoy priming the coil, or even filling the tank. While it is nice that the whole device and tank are highly compact, the atomizer itself is incredibly small and feels really fiddly if you have average sized fingers. You also need to make sure it’s fully tightened up too or you will get juice leaking down the side of the mod. The filling ports aren’t particular large and another inconvenience is that it is really difficult to adjust the airflow when the tank is fitted to the device.

Given that the tank features two very thick O-rings it can be difficult to gauge the fill level and on occasions it’s very easy to overdo it. These are of course things you will get used to with frequent use but it does feel a little less user friendly as a result.

Innokin iTaste Kroma-A Kit performance

The Kroma-A is fitted with the very accurate and superb Aethon chipset so you are unlikely to encounter any problems with Variable Wattage or Temperature Control Modes.

Now while the Axiom Tank is a bit fiddly, the flavour I got from the pre-fitted 0.8ohm Kanthal coil was excellent. I had filled the tank with some Manabush Omusa and while vaping I could easily pick out the deliciously rich notes in the juice. Vapour production was also incredibly good for such a tiny little tank and even when using 50PG/50VG Manabush I got a decent amount of vapour.

The major downside is that the tank is 2ml capacity and vaping at a modest 30 Watts it does drain very quickly, of course this is not really a surprise considering the size of the wicking slots on the coils. To an extent I wish Innokin had gone for smaller less juice guzzling coils. Nevertheless the tank can be quickly refilled.

In terms of the draw it is suited to a slightly restricted direct lung inhale and this can be closed down for an even more restrictive vape. To a degree it might even be suitable as a loose mouth to lung vape, but your particular mileage in that department may vary.

Switching the Kanthal coil out for the included Stainless Steel one the Kroma-A offered an excellent vape in Temperature Control. There was absolutely no heat spiking or Resistance fluctuations. Flavour wise it was certainly somewhat crisper than the Kanthal one and puts out more vapour, but being lower Resistance drains the juice much faster.

Battery life on the whole is typical of a 2000mAh device. An average vaper should get a full day’s of modest use out of it before having to recharge. The device does feature 2A charging and takes about 2.5-3.0 hours.

Conclusion

The Kroma-A is a great little device, ideal for a newcomer, or just for an existing vaper who prefers something more stealthy and lightweight. It performs extremely well and is definitely up to Innokin’s typical high standards of production!

There are a couple of minor issues such as the dark screen protector. The Axiom M21 Tank can feel somewhat fiddly to work with and is also a bit too juice hungry. Yet despite that it does offer a truly lovely vape and as a whole this is really attractive kit! What is also good value to the potential customer is that it comes with two coils allowing a new user to try out both Variable Wattage and Temperature Control.

If you’re looking for a compact little set up or if you are thinking of making the switch to vaping this kit is certainly well worth checking out!

Aspire Nautilus X Review

A Long Awaited Update. But Is The Aspire Nautilus X Worth The Wait?

The Aspire Nautilus X review we will get to in a moment. But first.. How long have we had to wait for the Nautilus tank update?! Hopefully, it will all be worth while!

Aspire nautilus X Review

Recently we have also seen the addition of the Aspire Triton Mini which also offers a great MTL vaping experience.

Can the new Nautilus X tank live up to it’s name? Let find out.

In The Box

The Nautilus X tank comes in a tidy little perspex case and includes the following:

  • 1 X Nautilus X Tank
  • 2 X 1.5 Ohm U Tech coil – One Pre-Installed
  • 1 X Spare Pyrex GalssAspire Nautilus X MTL Tank

Build Quality & Design

The Aspire Nautilus X is completely different, in all ways, from the original Nautilus tanks.

Not surprising seeing as vaping has come along way since Aspire first released the original tanks.Aspire nautilus X vs Nautilus Mini

They have done a great job as well. The Nautilus X is great looking tank. It’s kind of a squashed version of the Aspire Cleito minus a few obvious points.

The build quality is excellent.Nautilus X Tank by Aspire

As would be expected, it can be broken down for easy cleaning. Aspire have also introduced top fill, that is fast becoming standard with tanks. Simply unscew the top cap fill on screw back on.Aspire nautilus X Parts

The tank has been made to be TPD compliant, so 2ml is the max at the moment. Whether an extra Pyrex extension will be released to offer increased capacity remains to be seen.

With this being a fairly small tank it does look great on the mods I tried. Especially the Artery Nugget. Which is actually a great little partner for the Nautilus X if you are looking for a stealth vape setup.Aspire Nautilus X ReviewHere it is on the Innokin Cool Fire 4 TC 18650 Mod.

U Tech Coil

Aspire have introduced a new coil technology with the X called the U Tech Coil. Instead of the standard coils that pair with a chimney in the tank. The U Tech coil acts as the chimney as well as helping with the airflow.U Tech Coil Aspire Nautilus X

One of the first things I noticed with the tank is the lack of airflow holes. There are 2 very small holes at the base of the drip tip. These are adjustable by rotating the top plate on the tank.

This is where the U-Tech coil comes in. The new coil design, in a U shaped chamber, allows for air to flow through the top airflow and around the coil twice before taking a drag.aspire Nautilus X utech atomizer-coil

In short, there are pretty much no similarities to the original tanks in terms of build and deign.

How Does The Aspire Nautilus X Perform?

The Nautilus X comes with 2 x 1.5 Ohm U-Tech coils, one already pre-installed.

As mentioned before, the coil acts as the chimney. Once the coil is in place the seal in the base of the tank is very much air tight.Aspire Nautilus X U Tech Coil

Most tanks have airflow holes on the base, which can on occasion be one of the main causes for leaks.

The Nautilus X has none. Aspire have done this to cut down on the chances of e liquid leaking. Again, likely in light of the TPD regulations.

I have to say it works a treat. I have not had so much as a drop of juice leaking from the tank.

Flavor & Vapor

The new coils do a great job of creating the additional airflow needed for a satisfying vape.

This is a mouth to lung tank so it goes without saying the clouds aren’t going to be competition winners.Top Fill Aspire Nautilus X

Vaping at 20W, the clouds it does provide are very respectable. The coils are rated at 14W-20W, I did manage to go a few watts beyond this but 20W was my preferred setting.

The flavor I found was very good as well. I vaped a 60/40 VG/PG juice and it wicked well with no dry hits.

Best way to get to your preferred vape is to start low around 14W and work your way up one watt at a time.

Of course, this is after the coil has been primed. Or in other words, after you fill the tank let it sit for 5 minutes to allow for the wick in the coil to soak up the e juice.

If you are a new vaper, this is a very important point. If you don’t do this and fire up your device you will burn your cotton and the coil will need to be replaced.

Changing the airflow makes a difference to the draw, this is down to personal preference but I went for the airflow half shut.

Changing the airflow makes a slight difference to the draw, this is down to personal preference but I went for the airflow half shut.Aspire Nautilus X

It just gives a slightly tighter or looser draw. Not by much but it’s something you will want to have a play around with.

Final Aspire Nautilus X Review Verdict

While the Aspire Nautilus X is only a Nautilus by name, it is a great addition to the mouth to lung tank line up.

Along with the Triton Mini and the three Nautilus tanks, Aspire have a selection of the best MTL vape offerings on the market.

It goes without saying, the X should be considered if looking for this category of tank.

Review Genesis RDTA – Coil Master

Coil Master is known for its accessories, the brand launches into  rebuildable atomizers  with the Genesis RDTA , without much surprise and a little disappointing on the rendering of flavors.

A complete product

The Genesis RDTA comes in a box with a spare pyrex and a coin pocket including seals, tray screws, resistor and hex key. The realization of the atomizer is correct, without major defect but without returning the spirits so far. In use it is no problem, but it does not feel like a quality beyond the average. It will be marketed from August 21 and the price announced on the site of Coil Master is $ 29.99, which is consistent with the product.

Main characteristics

  • Diameter: 25 mm
  • Height: 47 mm
  • Weight: 57 g
  • Dripip wide 12mm
  • Capacity: 6ml

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

A classic achievement

For this first RDTA, Coil Master probably preferred to ensure a flawless product rather than innovate. The brand is widely known, no need to take too much risk on a first atomizer. And in fact the Genesis takes the recipes that have been proven lately.

We will start from the bottom and the 510 connection whose positive pinis more than 1mm from the thread, which is perfect if you want to mount the atomizer on a hybrid connection, you can do it safely. The threading is relatively short and does not pose any problems with any box.

The liquid filling is done by a large opening closed by the top cap . An interesting point, the very wide joint that covers all this part of the atomizer. The imperviousness is irreproachable, but it will be necessary to take care of this piece not easy to replace if it deteriorates. There is a spare in the spares, but all the same.

The airflow is very airy, almost free if it is opened completely. It can of course be adjusted by turning the upper part, to leave it open only three, two or one of the four cyclops. With only one open, there is a relatively restrictive airflow, which will be perfect for a vape at around 40 watts.

The arrangement of the openings of air favors the rendering of the flavors with the reasonable powers, when one leaves one or two opening. From three, we have a very wide air flow, and it will take a very long resistance to be in front of the holes. And with everything open, there will inevitably be openings that will not be beyond resistance, and the rendering of flavors is clearly felt.

This questionable air flow in the aerial position corresponds to the drip tip , which is 12mm wide. A very large format that quickly makes you regret a 510 adapter. No way to put the drip tip of your choice, while a less open model would undoubtedly improved the rendering of flavors with an intermediate adjustment of the airflow.

Correct rendering, no more

Another regret, the impossibility of mounting the Genesis in single coil. It will be necessary to make double coils, which will however be facilitated by the Velocity style tray . Nothing complicated for editing, this type of tray is one of the most functional. The ideal resistances are 3 mm in diameter in my opinion, it corresponds best to the passage of cotton wicks in the tray. Be careful not to over-tighten the cotton so that the air can easily enter the tank when it is going to empty, there is no small hole provided for the base of the tray.

Still, it will be difficult to find an ideal assembly with this atomizer. The best compromise seems to be a double coil to be vapered at 60 or 70 W, with two open air openings on all four. The rendering is then correct, say consistent with other similar RDTA, but we really regret not being able to optimize it with a finer drip tip. A rendering of flavors that will ultimately be correct in the best case.

Conclusion

Our rating: 3/5 . For its first RDTA, Coil Master offers a simple model, which takes the current standards without great innovation. A choice that can be understood given the brand’s reputation. Still, the airflow leaves little room to optimize the rendering of flavors, which will be at best correct. An atomizer a little disappointing that I do not recommend, not that it is bad, but because there is better whatever the style of vape you are looking for.

FreeMax Starre Mini – “We never stop there”

It is under this motto that you could read in the headline of the review that a new atomizer from the FreeMax company was born, which became a little smaller, but a little better and a bit more modern than the usual mode. I am sure that most of you are already very familiar with the Starre model and those who used this model did not really like the removable evaporators, and the manufacturer apparently listened to the vapers and introduced a new atomizer with a serviced platform with velocity format adjustable air flow and ease of use.


FreeMax Starre Mini - We never stop there

FreeMax Starre Mini - We never stop there

The main features of the atomizer: 

1) Manufacturer – FreeMax; 
2) Type – mini RDTA; 
3) Made of stainless steel; 
4) Tank capacity – 2 ml (there is a 5 ml version); 
5) The diameter of the model – 22mm; 
6) Borosilicate glass tank; 
7) Adjustable pin connector; 
8) Racks of “Velocity” format with large openings for coils; 
9) Adjustable airflow; 
10) Fully collapsible design.

FreeMax Starre Mini - We never stop there

Unlike the first model, the FreeMax Starre Mini RDTAIt is a compact device with a capacity of 2 ml. The capacity of the tank is probably the most controversial point, since today such a supply of liquid on modern and powerful devices will be enough for just a few puffs, but the manufacturer did so and there’s nothing to be done about it. Appearance at the same time simple and at the same time strict, nothing superfluous to distract from the process of soaring. Pin connector is very easy to adjust, this is also a small problem, as it can simply loosen and lose contact. The upper refueling occurs within a few seconds and this probably crosses out the lack of tank capacity. Each part of the atomizer perfectly fits with each other, everything sits firmly and securely, a tank of borosilicate glass of good thickness, complete with a spare tank. Drip type though stainless steel but with a delrin insert that minimizes the amount of heat that reaches your lips, it can be replaced with any similar drip type from your collection. Atomizer has two fully adjustable airflow holes “Cyclops format”. The adjustable ring works well, the stroke is not too loose and not too tight, which allows fine adjustment of the air supply to the chamber being serviced.

FreeMax Starre Mini - We never stop there

FreeMax Starre Mini - We never stop there

If you have already dealt with the “Velocity” serviced site, then you will surely have no difficulty in servicing and this atomizer is very simple, reliable and productive. The ability to install two spirals allows you to get maximum satisfaction in the process of soaring. Screws with excellent thread, wide holes, the only problem you may encounter in the process of servicing the atomizer is the limited amount of clearance for installing the spirals, although servicing the atomizer several times can be used to this.

FreeMax Starre Mini - We never stop there

FreeMax Starre Mini - We never stop there

As a conclusion. In terms of processing, ease of use, performance and price, the Freemax Starre Mini RDTAis a useful device that simply must be in the collection of each vaper. Among the shortcomings, we single out only the capacity (2 ml) and the weak thread of the pin connector, while all other parameters remain at a height. All thick and tasty!

IJOY CAPTAIN RTA REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

The first impression on the Ijoy Captain RTA is that it looks eerily similar to the slider tank that they sent me. Packaging is like most Ijoy tanks. It’s in a clear jewel type of box with everything on one tier. So far, I would have to say that it looks pretty good and if it vapes as well as the Captain S Sub ohm tank, this should be one hell of an RTA.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • 1x Captain RTA
  • 1x screwdriver
  • 1x extra glass
  • 1x tool pack (O-rings, screws, coils, Japanese Organic Cotton)
  • 1x 510 adaptor
  • 1x warranty card

iJoy Captain RTA Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

Just like the Captain S Sub ohm tank, the RTA has a slider style top. Ijoy has included a really nice Ultem chuff cap style drip tip. The drip tip is extremely comfortable and it has two rings on the bottom of it. I like the way it looks aesthetically on the tank and I love the way it performs. I’m actually kind of sad that they only included one. While it is not a proper Goon drip tip, it is 810 compatible. All of your Smok Beast line drip tips will fit as well. There is also a 510 drip tip adapter so you can run all of your 510 drip tips, too.

iJoy Captain RTA Review

Slide the top cap open and just like previous versions of this tank, you will see a kidney bean shaped fill port. Just like the S, it is a little small and I would rather it have been just a bit bigger. There is a rubber gasket around the fill port. Ijoy has also included an extra gasket for when this one wears thin. It will accommodate most juice bottles but with the chubby gorilla bottles, you may have to remove the drip tip to fill.

iJoy Captain RTA Review

Right below the top cap, we have the glass section and it is held in place by two nice o’rings. On the interior of the tank, the chimney is definitely on the wide side. The chimney does feed into a barrel that has an extremely conical design to it. The barrel does have four wicking ports that line up with for wicking ports on the deck itself. This tank does have juice flow control. The JFC is smooth but it definitely works better with the tank on a mod.

iJoy Captain RTA Review

The base on the Captain RTA is done a little differently than most RTA’s. It acts more like a ring than a base. What I mean by that is the deck actually separates from the base. So the base actually forms a ring around the 510 pin of the deck and that’s how you secure the deck to the tank. In other words, the base when taken off just has a hole in it with no 510. On the bottom of the base, you will find some Captain branding with the words designed by Ijoy. The knurling on the base is pretty good and it does provide a nice grip for when you need to access your deck.

iJoy Captain RTA Review

As with all the tanks in the Captain line, between the base and the glass, there is a significant cut out going around the whole tank. This is supposed to help with heat transfer. I do have to say that it does do a wonderful job in that area. I can chain vape this tank all day and it may get a little warm but it gets nowhere near as hot as some of my other tanks do with the same amount of vaping. It’s a nice simple design that is beautifully executed on this tank. Well done, Ijoy.

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

THE DECK:

The deck on this RTA is gold plated and it does have two types of air flow. You have airflow that comes directly underneath the coil and then there are some side airflow slots that grab air from the side of the coil. We have seen this before on other decks and it does seem to be a really good way to get the most flavor out of an atomizer. As I said before, the deck is removable. I am truly hoping that the reason Ijoy made it removable is that they are developing different configurations that can be used in this RTA. I would love to see a velocity style deck and a dedicated single coil deck. That would be just fantastic.

iJoy Captain RTA Review

The deck has a small oring going around the base right underneath the juice ports. That’s what holds the deck in place on the barrel. Below the oring and underneath the platform of the deck, you will find two airflow holes. One of the places that this deck gets its air flow from is directly under the coils. There is also a hole right underneath the two side pieces that grab the airflow from the side. You would think this tank would have a ton of airflow but in reality, it does not. Below the airflow holes, there is another o’ring that secures the 510 pin to the interior of the base. Below that, you have the actual 510 pin. The threading on the pin is nice and smooth and so far this atomizer has sat flush on all the mods that I have used it on. The pin itself is gold plated as is the whole deck. The pin does have a flat head adjustment to it and an insulator ring around it. All in all, this is a very well thought out deck.

BUILDING AND WICKING:

Because of the way this deck comes out of the base, it could be a little intimidating for the new user. There really is no need to be intimidated because this deck is easy to build and wick. It is your typical postless deck and as is the case with most postless decks, the hardest part about building it is getting your leads to the correct length. I always suggest to my readers that they just take their time and clip a little bit at a time.

Once you get the correct lead length, you simply mount your coils and tighten them up. Make sure that your coils are sitting just above the side airflow on this deck. You want the side airflow to grab the vapor from the bottom half of your coil. Do that and you will be rewarded with great flavor. Next, you wick up your coils and make sure you place them into the juice ports. I can’t stress this enough, you cannot stuff the cotton into the juice ports. You have to make sure that you place them in there gently and that they have enough room to wick freely. If you stuff them in, you will wind up with dry hits and your cotton will just not keep up. This is not the case with just this RTA but with any RTA that wicks this way. Once that is done, you are ready to do juice up your cotton and put your deck back in the tank.

Putting the deck back in the tank is pretty simple. It’s very much like the drop-in style of coil that the Captain S uses. You can line up your juice holes with your holes on the barrel, push the deck in, and simply put your base on. Once your base is on securely, you can screw it into your deck to insure that the deck is not going anywhere. Now you are ready to vape. It really is that simple and easy.

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

So far, every tank I’ve gotten from the Ijoy Captain line has been fantastic and the RTA is no different. I think what I like most about the Captain line of tanks is the restrictiveness on the airflow. Don’t get me wrong, this is no MTL tank with a super tight draw. It is a very nice restrictive lung hit. That is the type of vape that I really, truly enjoy. For me, Ijoy has just nailed the airflow on all of their Captain line tanks. Right now, I have dual twisted SS coils in there ohming out at .14 at 85 watts, in temperature control mode. I have this beautiful tank on my brand new Aleader Funky 160 and the vape I get is just superb. The clouds I get are pretty good but the flavor, the flavor is just really there. This is the type of tank that is just right up my alley. It has the perfect amount of airflow restriction, on point flavor, and the clouds are not bad either. If you put a gun to my head though, I would have to tell you that this is a flavor first RTA. Not saying that it chuck the clouds but the flavor is priority one with the Captain RTA and that is exactly the way I like it.

CONCLUSION:

Well, what can I say? I’ve owned every tank in the Ijoy Captain line and so far I have yet to be disappointed. The Captain RTA is definitely no different. It will satisfy the flavor chaser in you, it’s simple to build and wick, and it has just the right amount of restrictiveness to it. I do have a pre-release version but I do see this tank being very popular. I am assuming that’s why Ijoy built the deck the way they did. This tank definitely needs some more deck configurations and it will be a total home run for Ijoy. If you are a flavor-first vaper, definitely go out and pick yourself up a Captain RTA.

CoilArt Mage GTA Review

CoilArt Mage GTA Review

Mage GTA By CoilArt Review

CoilArt is back again with a new atomizer in the MAGE family. Earlier in the year, CoilArt released the MAGE RTA to the market and it was received with open arms due to it’s remarkable performance and small form factor. The Chinese based company has now released a new follow up to the RTA, called the MAGE GTA. Jumping on the bandwagon of returning to single coil atomizers, which we have seen a fair bit of lately, CoilArt have offered their take on this for us enjoy. Thanks to CoilArt for providing the Mage GTA for review here on Vaping Cheap.

GTA stands for Genesis Tank Atomizer which are also lovingly referred to a Genny by those are familiar with their history. Although it’s not a traditional Genny in the true sense of the word, the principle for how it operates is very similar. A Genesis tank relies on having a long wick that feeds a coil that is close to the mouthpiece. This principal, of having the chamber as high as possible, has proven to give an enhanced flavor concentration due to close proximity.

 

What’s in the Box?

  • 1x Mage GTA
  • 1x Replacement Glass
  • 1x Accessories Bag

 

Out of the Box

Again, a sterling effort from CoilArt on their packaging! As with every other product they have released the Mage GTA box is delightful. Opting this time for a box that slides out from an outer wrap – with a faux carbon fibre look on the packaging. On first inspection of the atomizer, it looks really nice and has a tight compact form factor. The nice lines and sleek aesthetics really shine on all of the CoilArt products and this one doesn’t disappoint either. This is one sexy looking tank!

The MAGE GTA holds a lot of resemblance to it’s brother the MAGE RTA, but appears to have a few more surprises in hand. Topping off the tank, there is a chuff style drip tip/top cap which can be interchanged with the RTA style if you prefer that. I know CoilArt sells these separately as spare parts in a few different colors. Underneath this, are the same kidney shaped fill holes and the chamber/chimney section is attached as one piece. The glass section is slightly bigger than the RTA, however it is held in by the same style of o-rings which are customizable in color with replacements in the spares bag. This means that glass tank is not able to be replaced with the MAGE RTA. The base shares the exact same airflow adjustment and three cyclops shaped air holes as the RTA.

CoilArt Mage GTA Review

This brings us to the build deck and oh my what a pretty deck she is – plated with 24k gold. We see a similar deck design to the serpent mini, although here we have much more room to play with. This design is primarily aimed for single coil builds, however I am sure if you wanted to get creative you could come up with many options – there is certainly enough room to do so. Two offset post clamps are utilized with horizontal grub screws in between which the coils are secured. The grub screws are phillips head and can be adjusted with the included screw driver. There are wicking slots on either side that sit between the threads, which appear to be size-able enough to accommodate a fair amount of wicking material.

Finally on the bottom we see an adjustable 510 connection. This is the first adjustable 510 I’ve seen with a phillips head notch in it, which is a nice touch. It can be used with a traditional flat head screwdriver, however the phillips head will give more leverage whilst adjusting and less likely strip out. This 510 connection also happens protrude more than others I have seen to date.

The rest of the box contains a spare glass section, two sets of colored o-rings, some spare grub screws, a screwdriver, an instruction card and a vape band.

I was highly impressed with the build quality of this tank. All parts fit together nicely, there are not any loose threads or janky parts. The machining quality is top notch and I did not detect any reminiscence of machine oil on inspection.

 

Usage

Getting down to building, I found installing my coils a very simple straight forward task. Being a single coil tank, there was no battling with dual coils and having to get them perfectly positioned. It was simply a case of centering the coil over the large air hole and clamping each post down. For thinner coils, I would recommend ensuring that the coil ends are directly in the middle of the grub screw and the post to ensure a solid connection. For larger builds, I found that they still work fine if they sit below the grub screw as well as directly in the middle. Due to the huge amount of real estate available on the build deck, you can comfortably fit coils of up to 3.5mm diameter if you so choose to.

Wicking was again straight forward and very hard to get wrong. Once you feed your wick through the coil, you can train each end down through the wick slots to get an idea of where to trim it. I’ve had good results trimming the wick either just below the bottom of the wick slots or all the way down to the bottom of the reservoir. It’s best to experiment with this according to your coil build, wicking material and VG% of your e-liquid. When your happy with where you wick is sitting, make sure that it is tucked into the wicking slots clear of the thread to ensure that it doesn’t get caught up when you screw the top down.

CoilArt Mage GTA Review

Filling the MAGE GTA through the top kidney shaped fill holes appears to be an easy task. It does require some attention though, as this is the part that has a few quirks to it. When filling, I recommend doing so slowly, as a quick injection of e-liquid may cause it to be forced up the wicking slots, through the air intake and out the air holes. So take your time and give it an even fill, while watching the juice settle in place. Due to the large chamber section, there is not much clearance to the glass and this causes air bubbles. You have to wait for the air bubbles to clear before you can fill the tank up fully. The air bubbles do come back during the course of normal vaping, but if monitored they do not affect the performance of this tank. More on this later.

The chuff like drip tip is very comfortable to use and the bore seems wide enough to compliment the airflow design of the tank. The pure shape of the drip tip makes it much easier to loosen than on the RTA, which was previously sloped and hard to get a grip of. You need to be careful when screwing in the topcap because the threads are cut into the delrin and could be easily striped. I recommend turning the cap anti-clock wise first to ensure that it is seated well in the thread before tightening further. You cannot use your own drip tip with this tank, your stuck with either the included topcap or you need to swap it out for the RTA top cap.

The airflow mechanism is super smooth to adjust and very easy to turn. It has just enough resistance to hold it’s place without being a pain to adjust. You can adjust it from fully closed to fully open and anywhere in between. Apart from stopping at either end, there are no stops in between like some attys where the airflow clicks into place. Due to the symmetry of the airflow design, each of the three airflow slots are mirrored all the way round.

Despite the protruding 510 connection, the MAGE GTA fits well on each mod and makes a solid connection. I don’t get any gaps below the atty and every mod I have put it on looks neat. I have not had to adjust the 510 yet, so it seems to be set at the ideal length already.

Performance

The first build I tried in the MAGE GTA was a 3mm spaced 26AWG stainless 316L coil that came in around 0.7 ohms. With wide open airflow, the flavor and vapor production were pretty decent around 40 watts. With the airflow closed about a third of the way, the flavor started to increase. I was pretty impressed with the performance of such an easy straight forward coil build.

Then I stepped up to a fused Clapton, which came in about 0.45 ohms. I found the easiest way to install this was to have the ends of the coils vertical to enable a good connection with the post and grub screw, then reposition the coil in the center and quite close to the airflow. This is where the flavor and vapor production shined. Between 45-50 watts I was getting killer flavor again with about one third of the airflow closed and the clouds were good. I would almost compare the flavor to be on par with the MAGE RTA at this point. I think it all comes down to your coil build, amount of wick and the having the coil quite low and close to the air intake.

CoilArt Mage GTA Review

In comparison to the airflow on the MAGE RTA, I found the GTA to be a little more restrictive. By all means, not a tight draw, but less airy than the RTA none the less. I think this is probably a good thing as this tank can cater for Mouth to Lung style vapers where single coils really come into play.

I didn’t experience any leaking when using this tank, but do be careful as mentioned previously when filling to avoid over filling or quick entry of your e-juice. Wicking kept up well and I didn’t have any dry hits to complain about. Which brings me back to the point about having to monitor the air bubbles in this tank. As mentioned before, this tank is prone to air bubbles. The bubbles seem to occur under the chamber section and you can see the air pockets near the ends of your wick. Although, for me, the wicks stayed saturated – I do imagine for some people who vape heavily that this could cause an issue of e-liquid not saturating the wick, which would in turn lead to dry hits. The air bubbles do dissipate over time and can be quickly rectified by tipping the tank on it’s side. I would have to rate this as a con of the GTA due to it not being 100% hassle free vaping, you are always going to have to the fact that you need to monitor the tank in the back of your mind. I can personally deal with this, however it’s fair enough that others don’t have the time or need to have to worry about this.

As with the MAGE RTA, you cannot take your build deck apart to inspect it without loosing juice. So you have to either vape the tank dry or use a syringe to remove the liquid before disassembling the atty.

Personalizing the MAGE GTA couldn’t be easier. You have different color o-rings included and you can also swap the topcap out to the various color MAGE RTA topcaps for a perfect match. The MAGE GTA is available in both Stainless Steel and Black finishes and they both look great.

To summarize the Pros and Cons for this tank.

Cons

  • You cannot use your own drip tip
  • Top cap threading can strip if you’re not careful
  • You don’t have the ability to inspect your build on the fly, need to empty the tank to rebuild
  • Air bubbles on filling and vaping

Pros

  • Amazing aesthetics and general looks
  • Swap-ability with Mage RTA Top Cap
  • Ability to run on a less powerful mod due to single coil
  • Ease of use

If you are a single coil fan and wanted to try one of the CoilArt tanks, this would be hard walk past. CoilArt provide really good quality products for the price point, so you won’t be disappointed on either account. I don’t hesitate to recommend the MAGE GTA for it’s performance and flavor qualities.

Cobra RTA by Asvape – unsupervised fluid delivery

If you have not heard of Asvape , you should not worry about it, because you are definitely not the only one. My own knowledge in the history of the company ends with Strider boxing mode presented by the manufacturer in conjunction with VO Tech . Now I also know the tank called Cobra , which appeared in the catalogs of online stores relatively recently. It looks like an ordinary atomizer, yet it has small highlights, which attract attention. Let’s try to formulate an opinion about the new product.

Cobra RTA by Asvape
What I want to immediately note is that without having done anything supernatural, the designers were able to “roll out” a very stylish product that would stand out without any problems among a heap of repetitive competitors. The tank is available in only two color options – black and steel. I singled out for myself the last one, which, in my opinion, is best combined with a gold-colored evaporator.
Cobra RTA by Asvape
There are not so many decorative elements on the case. These can be attributed, perhaps, to small engravings on the case. By the way, I did not find information about how the 1986 figure relates to this device. The only connection I could find was Stallone’s film “Cobra”, released just in 1986. As for the size, everything is more or less standard. Despite the fact that the tank has a rather large diameter of 24 mm, it is only 42.5 mm in height, so the novelty can be called compact.
Cobra RTA by Asvape
Due to some external similarity with atomizers of the Moonshot type , one may get the impression of the great potential of the new product, but in reality everything is much more modest. Asvapepositioning a novelty as a tank for those who are just switching from the most primitive atomizers or to those who need a powerful tank. For advanced vapers, a tank with an evaporator on Ni80 0.5 ohm with recommended power from 35W to 45W is not of particular interest. It’s too early to judge the amount of steam and the taste transfer, but the presence of a standard blower can be considered good news.
Cobra RTA by Asvape

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

The manufacturer calls the most interesting feature of his device is the design of evaporators. As you can see, the entire evaporator housing is covered with holes of small size, that is, the liquid comes directly from everywhere. According to the manufacturer, this will allow to use liquids with 100% VG on this tank. I don’t see much point in this, but you can count it as a marketing move.
Cobra RTA by Asvape
When I began to get acquainted with the performance characteristics of this tank, I was ready to see the figure of 2 ml in the column capacity of the tank for liquid. In fact, it turned out that Asvape engineers have a conscience, so that a fully filled tank can hold 3.8 ml of liquid. Not to say that this is such a serious indicator, but for a comfortable soaring should be enough.

OBS ENGINE RTA REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

Love the color, got the gold one. The Engine does come packaged nicely in a two-tier box. On the front tier, you will see the tank itself, the spare glass, and a screwdriver. On the second tier of the box, there will be an instruction manual and a package with all the goodies and spares. So far, it is impressive looking. It comes out of the box clean and looks to be well built. Let’s wick this thing up and see if it really does live up to the hype.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • 1 x OBS Engine RTA
  • 1 x Screwdriver
  • 1 x Set of Spare Parts
  • 1 x Replacement Glass
  • 1 x Cotton Pad
  • 2 x Prebuilt Kanthal Coils

OBS Engine RTA Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

The drip tip is a 510 drip tip that is seated on a pretty big platform that houses the air flow control. Normally, I absolutely hate top caps like this because of the huge platform. However, in this case, I do understand it from a design standpoint because they did need someplace to house the AFC. The drip tip is very comfortable and I am happy that they decided to use a 510 although I would have preferred an 810 drip tip. Because of the way this tank is designed and the platform that houses the AFC, only certain drip tips will actually look good on the OBS Engine. You need to use drip tips that will either sit flush on top of the platform or have a flattened-out bottom.

OBS Engine RTA Review

The AFC on the Engine is done a little different than most AFC’s I have seen on the tanks coming out today. Most tanks have two airflow slots one on each side. The OBS Engine has three airflow slots each one located a third of the way around the platform. The airflow itself is quite smooth and when you do taper it down, you will experience better flavor. Right below the platform, we have the actual top cap assembly of the OBS Engine. There are some grooves on this part of the tank as well as some OBS branding. Pull this part of the tank up and you will reveal the side fill port. I’ve never been a fan of side fill tanks but to be fair, OBS seems to execute this feature very well on the Engine. Definitely a better design and execution than most side fill ports I have seen. The side fill port is pretty big by most standards and will accommodate all juice bottles including the bullnose type.

Below the whole top cap assembly, we do have the glass section. It does have a sort of caged look to it. The glass actually goes over some nicely machine bars on the interior of the tank. The OBS Engine does have a 5.2 ml capacity. The nice thing about the Engine is it really is not a juice killing tank.

OBS Engine RTA Review

The barrel on the Engine really does not have any sort of conical design. On the bottom of the barrel, there are two notches that will line up with two notches on the base. I’m really disappointed with this notch system. It can be a real pain to get the base on and I really think it could have been done a lot better. The barrel does lead into what I would call a medium bore chimney. It is really not a wide bore chimney but it is not narrow either. Since this tank is a top airflow only tank, the chimney is what you would call a double walled chimney. That is, the airflow comes in through the outer walls, hits the coil, and then the vapor comes out through the inner chimney.

OBS Engine RTA Review

As I said earlier, the base can be a pain in the neck to get it to catch and thread on smoothly. The notch system on this tank is severely lacking and could have been designed a lot better. I think bigger notches would have served this base better because the way it is right now, it can be really tough to line up. Threading on the base itself is really not the greatest and it does seem to be a little bit on the thin and crunchy side. Turn the bass over and you will see the bottom of the tank. There is some OBS branding and a serial number. The 510 pin is gold plated and the threading on that is pretty smooth.

OBS Engine RTA Review

Overall, it’s a decently built tank that probably could have been machined a little better at the base with a better system for putting the base on. I do like the looks of the tank but the base has just been a real pain to use. It’s almost like you have to find the notches and then click the base into place before you can begin screwing it on. Definitely a huge con as far as I’m concerned.

The deck on the Engine is a typical velocity style deck with grub screws. It is a two-post two-terminal-per-post setup. The post holes are not particularly big and you will have an issue getting flat wire or exotic coil leads in there. I do like the fact that OBS decided to use grub screws on this deck. In my opinion, they are the best type of screws for most applications pertaining to most decks. The grub screws do seem to be of decent quality and I haven’t had any problems with them as of yet. Right below the posts, there is a platform that houses your wicking ports. There are four circular wicking ports that you insert the ends of your cotton into. The platform does float above the base of the deck and it wicks almost like a GTA-style deck. The only difference being is on most GTA style decks the wicking ports are open on one side, while on the OBS Engine, the wicking ports are fully closed. The juice feeds up through a cup style section into your cotton.

BUILDING AND WICKING:

Building it is pretty simple because it is a velocity style deck but you will be limited to the types of coils you can use on this deck. Wicking is very simple as well. Simply, put the cotton through your coil and tuck your ends into the wicking ports. The Engine wick is very similar to a GTA style tank. It’s a pretty simple deck to work with and even if you are new to building, you shouldn’t have a problem getting the OBS Engine up and run.

OBS Engine RTA Review

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

For months now, I’ve been watching the OBS Engine get hyped all over the internet. All I have been hearing is flavor for days and it doesn’t leak. Well, to be honest, I guess one out of two isn’t bad. The OBS Engine does not leak. Flavor for days? Yeah, I’m not too sure about that. While the flavor on the OBS Engine is okay and what I would call extremely middle of the road I definitely wouldn’t call the Engine a flavor tank. I can think of ten other tanks off the top of my head that have better flavor than the OBS Engine. I know this will probably not be a popular opinion but I have to be honest and write about my experiences. Your experience may be different but this is how I feel about this particular tank. I consider myself a TC flavor chaser and this tank just does not do it for me.

Whenever I would see one of those hype reviews, I always questioned it in the back of my mind because I know that in general, top airflow is just not conducive to great flavor. If you want to build a great flavor tank, the first place to start is bottom airflow. At the very least, it should have side airflow. Without one of those two features, it is extremely tough to build a flavor-chaser tank. I’m here to tell you that the OBS Engine does not qualify in my book as a flavor chaser tank.

I will say this about the OBS Engine, the flavor that I do get is fairly decent, however, I have noticed that sweeter, more fruity types of vapes do a lot better in this tank than other flavors. If I put a bakery or a custard in this tank, it just tastes bland. I’ve used juices in this tank that I know extremely well and I know that I am not getting the full flavor from potential out of them when I run them in the OBS Engine. I have also tried multiple builds and nothing I do seems to make the flavor pop like I have seen other reviewers talk about.

Right now, I have the OBS Engine sitting atop my Squid Industries Double Barrel mod. I have it running in power mode at 74 watts and I am ohming out at .2 ohms. The build I have in there is dual Twisted SS coils. The flavor I get is just okay. It is not flavor for days, and it really doesn’t outperform most of my other flavor-oriented tanks. The clouds I get are definitely on the anemic side, and unfortunately, that matches the flavor as well. It’s just an okay tank with okay clouds. That is the best way I can describe the OBS Engine.

WHAT WOULD HAVE MADE IT BETTER

  • Bigger lead terminals
  • Some sort of bottom airflow
  • Better notch system on the base
  • Conically designed barrel
  • Better machining on the interior base threading

CONCLUSION:

If you’re one of those vapers that worries about leaking more than you do flavor, then definitely go out and get yourself an Engine. I know that there are vapers in the community that absolutely hate leaky wet tanks. If that is one of your pet peeves then the OBS Engine will serve you well. If you are a flavor chaser and you are looking for phenomenal flavor, the Engine will not serve you well. In my opinion, there are a lot of other choices in this subcategory that beat the OBS Engine in flavor. It is a decent tank overall but it’s not all that and a bag of chips. After all the hype that I have seen for the OBS Engine I have to say that unfortunately, I have been severely disappointed in the vape quality of this tank. Does it live up to the hype? For me, unfortunately, the answer is no.

Mesh might finally hit the mainstream

Vandy Vape Mesh RTA

A few years back when mesh wicks first made their appearance, it was unclear whether it was just a fad, or whether they would be the next best thing in vaping. However, they seemed to fizzle out, until recently. Now Vandy Vape has reimagined it as a heating element; it is once again becoming the buzzword.

Vandy Vape is now the first manufacturer to utilize mesh in an RTA. It is a brave choice for such a new brand, especially given the consensus around mesh as a heating element in general. However, it’s this original path of design that has helped drive their recent success.

The Mesh RTA is 24 mm in diameter. It has an average height of 39 mm and comes with a step-shaped pyrex glass. There is also an adapter in the kit to change the reservoir size from 2 ml (TPD Compliant) to the larger 4 ml capacity. The tank also features a slide-out top cap to make refilling easy and fuss-free.

The Mesh RTA has top airflow by design, where the air will direct down from the top inlets onto the mesh element. One would assume this is the only viable option with the airflow, as a mesh build and bottom airflow may have given a higher possibility of leaking issues. A wise choice by Vandy Vape to help minimize any challenges faced when wicking mesh coil builds.

The kit will include two variants of stainless steel mesh; one rated at 0.37 and the other 0.43 Ohms – both promising excellent flavor and vapor production. Also included are an Ultem and Delrin doc drip tip (with a 510 adapter).

Whether the Mesh RTA is a significant success or not, I’m glad Vandy Vape are taking bold decisions, and trying to reinvent the mesh medium. It could potentially spark a new era in rebuildable tank atomizers.
