GeekVape Ammit MTL RDA Review – Is This A ‘Proper’ MTL Vape?

geekvape mtl rda

There’s A Lot Of Airflow So Is The Ammit MTL RDA by Geekvape Really A Mouth To Lung Dripper?

The Geekvape Ammit MTL RDA is a tiny little single coil 22mm mouth to lung dripper that on paper looks to have far to much airflow to give a proper Mouth to Lung (MTL) vape but as this review shows looks can be deceiving.

The original sub ohm Ammit RTA had a mixed bag of reviews and feedback with lots of leaking issues whilst the recent updated Ammit 25mm version has once again split users opinions.

However early indications are this 22mm MTL RDA is proving extremely popular with its leak proof top to bottom airflow design and pleasing looks.

The key issue as I’ve already touched on is can the amount of airflow hitting the deck give a ‘proper MTL restricted vape?’

To find out lets take a closer look.

The GeekVape Ammit MTL RDA was sent to me direct from the company for the purpose of this review – thank you – and as always my thoughts and opinions are my own.

GeekVape Ammit MTL RDA Specs and Features

  • Size: 22mm x 38.3mm
  • Type: Single Coil RDA
  • Drip Tip: 510
  • Single Coil
  • 3D Airflow System Producing Unbeatable Flavor

Key Features

This is a single coil 22mm RDA designed specifically for mouth to lung – MTL vapers.

It features a dual post deck with a decent depth juice well and the Geekvape famous 3D airflow system.

It’s top to bottom airflow which means its designed to be leak proof and as to if that stands up we shall see shortly.

ammit mtl rda deck

There’s 12 different airflow settings taking you to a very restricted draw right through to a very comfortable loose draw that is close to direct to lung – DTL – if you like a restricted hit.

The airflow control ring includes a Cyclops style which means you can open all or some of the holes and also a single ring that means you can fine tune the airflow with the corresponding hole.

GeekVape-Ammit-MTL-RDA-Airflow

It’s squonk compatible and comes with a squonk pin that feeds the juice through two holes punched at the bottom of the 510.

Dripping is easy enough however the generous juice well means you can actually fill it with around 2mls and at low power that will last you a very long time indeed.

I received the stainless steel version and other colours are available including the very snazzy violet.

Design and Build Quality

It’s actually quite a smart looking uncluttered RDA with just the image of the mythical Ammit creature printed on one side.

The overall shape is very tapered and the top cap is domed and conical inside too which suggests this will be a real flavour machine – more on that soon.

You also receive x3 different 510 mouthpieces all in differing restrictions and one extremely long stainless steel version.

ammit mtl rda components

Build wise the Geekvape Ammit MTL RDA is pretty good with little or no shards or sharp bits and the machining is nice and smooth.

The top cap isn’t the thickest you’ll ever use and sitting on it or dropping it might see it become out of shape – so no rough handling!

The tolerance on the top cap is not as strong as you might like – especially fully juiced up – however even fully filled it does take a little effort to get it off to fill or drip.

How Does the GeekVape Ammit MTL RDA Perform?

The build deck is simple enough even for a beginner with two cross head screws and you should have no bother at all fitting the supplied 0.7hm coils.

I found the cross head post screws a little small but then this is a dainty deck – and I was particularly impressed with the included coils.

ammit rda coiled

I found placing the coil dead centre to the 3D and bottom airflow and slightly raised gave me the best vape – though we’re talking fractions of mm so it really shouldn’t make too much of a difference.

The coils read out at between 0.56 and 0.6 ohms and I found an extremely comfortable loose MTL vape with the airflow fully open on the Cyclops setting at 17w.

I moved between 15w and 25w with the later getting a little warm – both the vape and the top cap – but 21w for me was bang on.

OK out of the box it’s set for dripping mode which as I’ve already stated given the depth of the juice well this acts perfectly well as a 2ml MTL tank.

wicked

I’ve used this RDA extensively in both dripper and squonk mode and to be honest I found either gave a superb loose MTL vape with the Cyclops airflow wide open which is my preferred style.

Closing it down on both the Cyclops and ring to the tiniest hole gives an almost impossibly tight draw which I found uncomfortable.

But with 12 different possible airflow settings and of course the three mouthpieces you will find a happy medium.

Pros

  • Great price
  • Nice design
  • Ton of airflow options
  • Easy to build on
  • Squonk compatible
  • Great flavour
  • Decent clouds
  • Choice of drip tips

Cons

  • Top cap not the strongest
  • Small fiddly post screws
  • Over squonking very easy!

Final Review Verdict

Those in the know are surprised at just how well this MTL RTA performs as a ‘proper mouth to lung’ vape given the sheer amount of airflow getting to the coil.

However the sheer choice of airflow control holes means you really can shut off so much air it really can give the tightest MTL vape right up to a much looser – not quite DTL vape.

I had a couple of issues with the squonk action where one squeeze flooded the deck – no leakage but it took a longish amount of time to suck the excess back into the tank which could be down to the tiny squonk holes in the pin.

I enjoyed using this more in out and out dripper mode and as I’ve already said it acts just like a 2ml tank given the generous juice well.

This is the first MTL RDA I’ve used and I have to say given I mouth to lung vape daily I’m extremely impressed with the Geekvape Ammit MTL RDA.

Wotofo Viper RTA Preview | Another Single-Coil RTA

Wotofo Viper RTA Intro

The Viper RTA is the newest tank atomizer from Wotofo and follows the recent release of the Serpent SMM, in the same atomizer category.

If, like me, you are pondering the merits of releasing a new RTA before most vapers have even had a chance to try out the older model, then the obvious question is “What really makes this RTA any different to its predecessor?”. Let’s unpack it a little further…

A Single Coil RTA for Novices

wotofo-viper-rta

The Serpent SMM and the Viper RTA are both single coil RTAs. However, where the Serpent SMM features an innovative, dual post build deck that has been constructed to accommodate both forward and reverse facing coils, the Viper utilizes a standard two-post design for single coils with beefy Phillips head screws.

Single-coil vapers will appreciate the Wotofo Viper’s deck

The tank itself holds up to 3 mL of liquid at maximum capacity and has a useful locking mechanism that can be easily maneuvered to restrict juice flow when not in use, thereby minimizing the possibility of leaks. In addition to this, the bottom airflow control channels air from underneath the coils, directly into the build chamber for a more intense flavour-experience in general.

It’s nice to see single coils making a comeback. It will be interesting to see whether the Viper beats the SMM from Wotofo. Hopefully, we’ll find out soon enough.

Vaporesso Swag Kit preview | Stylish Beginner Kit

Vaporesso Swag Kit Intro

Vaporesso hasn’t been just resting on the success on the Revenger, they’ve been hard at work. Today we look at a new single-18650 kit designed to be a portable fashion statement. Bearing a resemblance to the Revenger, but with a compact aesthetic, similar to that of a Pico or AL85.

The kit comes complete with the NRG SE, their latest tank that bears resemblance to the TFV8. It features a simple twist-open design and makes use of the new GT core coil system.

  • 1 X User Manual
  • 1 X NRG SE Tank / NRG SE Mini Tank (EU version)
  • 1 X Vaporesso USB Cable

Got swag?

Vaporesso_Swag_kit

The Vaporesso Swag mod is a palmable single-cell device that can put out 80 W. It features 2 A fast charging, temperature control and smart modes made possible by the Omni 2.0 chip. It also implements a design similar to the Baby Alien or iStick Pico with a threaded battery cap on top.

Plastic injection molding is used to create a fresh and modern look while maintaining durability. Weighing in at only 99 g, this mod is going to appeal to lovers of the Revenger who want a more portable form factor. The Swag mod is currently available in silver, orange, blue and black.

The NRG SE tank is the latest atomizer from Vaporesso. They are boasting that it has the best flavor than any of their previous designs. It makes use of a new GT core system, so I would imagine that the flavor has been improved from their former devices. The NRG SE utilizes a top fill system with a twist open design to make refilling it a breeze.

What happens when you cross an iStick Pico with a Revenger? SWAG!

The tank holds 3.5 mL of juice, and the EU Mini version holds 2 mL for TPD compliance. It has a baby beast vibe going on if you ask me, but I’m curious to try out Vaporesso’s take on it. They have consistently been delivering solid performing products, so this shouldn’t be any exception.

It comes with a 0.4 Ohm GT2 coil, and the TPD-compliant version with the 0.5 Ohm GT CCell. The GT2 core is rated from 40-80 Watts while the GT CCell is suited for 20-35 Watts of power. There is also three other different coil heads available to suit the needs of just about everyone.

The new NRG SE tank is compatible with the same GT cores found the Revenger Kit.

Though the design of the NRG SE tank is simplistic, it promises big flavor. Vaporesso is calling it their “magic invention”. The jury is still out on that… Do you think the Swag kit is going to be like magic, or just another tank and mod combo? How do you feel about Vaporesso’s products?

With the name of this kit, I would think that Vaporesso is trying to market to the younger generation of vapers. If you’re over 25, you probably usethat word to describe the free stuff that you get at a vape convention. To this new generation, swag is all about style and finesse… This kit embodies both of those things. It looks great… and it might even fit in your skinny jeans.

Smoant Battlestar Review

Introduction – The Battlestar Mod by Smoant

The first time I saw any Smoant equipment was at Vaper Expo 2016 and I must say I was intrigued by what I saw, although much was pre-release.

The Smoant Battlestar is a dual 18650 temperature control mod, much in the style of the Wismec RX2/3 in its dual cell mode. Like the RX it is capable of 200W with good cells.

The mod is available in ten colours: Black, Yellow, White, Dark Blue, Red, Orange, Bronze Blue, Silver, Copper and Stainless Steel.

I’ve been sent the Yellow for review.Smoant Battlestar mod review

The box is quite striking with bright yellow images on a black background, the front showing images of the mod, company logo and name.Smoant Battlestar unboxing

The sides carry a barcode, regulatory marks, colour check boxes and the Battlestar name.

The back shows a description of some of the functions & features, an authenticity scratch panel and more regulatory marks.

Inside the box

Venturing inside the first things we see are:

  • QC certificate
  • User manual and prompt card.

Beneath these we find:

  • Battlestar mod
  • Sturdy feeling USB cable.

Unusually we also get a small box containing replacement magnets for the battery cover.

Design and Build Quality

The Battlestar is a nice-looking mod in the style of the RX2/3, constructed from powder coated alloy.

It’s relatively petite for a dual cell device, standing only 83mm high, 40mm wide and 35mm deep. It has a pleasing rounded five-sided shape, fitting nicely in the hand.Smoant Battlestar mod in hand

Up top we have a sprung stainless steel 510 connector with air slots and to the sides we have vent slots with recesses that look as if they should have some sort of grip material in them.Smoant Battlestar top of mod

On the front, we have the now familiar fire button, display, up/down and micro USB quartet.

The USB port supports charging, pass through use and firmware updating.Smoant Battlestar OLED Screen

To the rear, we have the black battery cover with more ventilation holes.

It pulls free, held in place by four strong magnets that provide a very secure grip.Smoant Battlestar battery case

The battery tray holds the cells snugly with no rattling, it’s clearly labelled for polarity and has well sprung contacts at the positive terminals.

On the base, we have another set of ventilation holes, Smoant logo and regulatory marks.Smoant Battlestar mod base

How Does The Smoant Battlestar Perform?

Fitting cells to the Battlestar was a breeze, the contacts are firm but not too hard.

The battery cover doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall off accidentally, I found it easier to rock the cover in one direction rather than trying to pull it clear in one go.Smoant Battlestar box mod

In charging mode, we get a bold charging indicator with flashing blocks to show progress.

The USB connector feels to be of good quality, holding the cable snugly.

During charging the Battlestar got very slightly warm but not to any great level.Smoant Battlestar vape mod

Functions

  • Pressing the fire button five times turns the device on, and from there things look very familiar.
  • A Smoant animated splash screen and we’re into the variable power mode.
  • Power is adjustable, using the up/down buttons, from 1W to 200W in 0.1W increments from 10 to 100W, then in 1W increments up to 200.
  • Pressing the up/down buttons at the same time flips the display.
  • Three presses take you into the mode screen, allowing you to scroll though variable power, Ni200, Ti, SS316 and Ni80 modes as well as three TCR settings.
  • Pressing and holding the fire and up buttons reverses the display into black on white
  • While pressing fire and both up/down at the same time locks the power/temperature setting.
  • In temperature control mode holding fire and up switches the display to the upper power level, releasing the fire button then permits this to be changed.Smoant Battlestar OLED screen

The mod comes with reverse polarity, over-time, short/low resistance and overheating protection.Smoant Battlestar OLED

Having used the Smoant Battlestar on and off for a few weeks I can honestly say it’s been a pleasure to use.

It’s comfortable to hold either as thumb or finger fire, easy to operate and functions flawlessly.

Temperature control seemed to be spot on, not hunting at all. The device didn’t heat up noticeably during use.Smoant Battlestar review

My only bugbears are, as with several other mods using powder coatings, the paint finish isn’t particularly tough and after a few weeks in and out of my pocket it’s picked up some scratches.Smoant Battlestar paint chip

Nothing a wrap or sleeve wouldn’t fix but there are better coatings out there that maybe Smoant need to consider.

And again, as with some other mods of this style the fire button is proud of the case which can lead to accidental firing in the pocket, not dangerous but annoying when you ruin a wick or coil.

Final Review Verdict

This is the first Smoant device I’ve seen up close and I must say I’m impressed.

Barring a couple of very minor issues the Battlestar is great, easy to use and has a good range of features.

Yes, it does bear a similarity to the RX2/3 but it has tweaked the look slightly and is no worse for it.

I’d thoroughly recommend the Battlestar to new or seasoned vapers looking for flexibility and the additional life or power of a dual setup.

Nice work Smoant, this is one I would replace if I lost it.

Augvape V200 review

Augvape V200

One of the more interesting looking devices to hit the market recently is the Augvape V200, which is styled on the looks of a B18C car engine! Much like a B18C engine, it has been designed to deliver pure performance, with a maximum power output of 200W!

The chip present in the Augvape V200 also features bypass mode, as well as V Mode which drastically decreases the ramp up time compared to other 200W devices, with a unique adjustment button helping you to navigate the menu system quickly and easily!

Specs

  • 87.5mm x 45mm x 29.2mm dimensions
  • Zinc Alloy construction
  • 5-200W output range
  • 0.05-3ohm resistance range
  • V Mode to reduce ramp up time
  • Bypass mode to offer a mech mod styled experience
  • 0.96inch OLED display
  • Unique styling
  • Oversized firing button built into the screen
  • Rotating adjustment button
  • Bottom latch battery door
  • Spring loaded 510 connector
  • Balanced USB charging with 1.2A max charging output

What’s in the Box?

Inside the box you get the Augvape V200 mod, a USB cable and a user manual.

Design and Build Quality

Looks wise the Augvape V200 is quite unlike any other mod on the market. Augvape have styled it based on the high performance B18C car engine most commonly found in Honda car models. The resemblance is very close too, and I really do like the unique styling of this device, it makes it stand out from the crowd!

The Augvape V200 measures in at 87.5mm x 45mm x 29.2mm with a centrally placed 510 connector, and I find that this device is a good size for my hand. It is constructed from Zinc Alloy, and doesn’t feel overly heavy even with batteries present in the mod.

Focus On www.urvapin.com For More Best Vape mods.

At the front of the Augvape V200 is a clear 0.96inch OLED display, displaying the current wattage output, resistance, voltage output, puff time and individual battery life. The fire button is built into the top of the screen, with a circular adjustment button next to it. A latched battery door at the bottom of the Augvape V200 gives access to the battery compartment.

Using the Augvape V200

  • Press the power button five times to turn the Augvape V200 on and off
  • To switch between Normal mode, V mode and Bypass mode, press the power button three times then turn the adjustment button up or down.
  • Normal mode offers a standard variable wattage experience
  • V mode greatly increases the ramp up time
  • Bypass mode offers a mechanical mod styled experience with short circuit protection
  • To adjust screen brightness, press power and the adjustment button down at the same time
  • To lock and unlock the wattage, press power and turn the rotation button up
  • Standby mode will activate after 60 seconds with no input
  • 10 second cut off, low resistance, short circuit, low voltage and excess temperature protections are built in.

Performance

No temperature control modes are present on the Augvape V200, this device is all about pure variable wattage power delivery! It does this extremely well, with little delay between pressing the fire button and the V200 firing. Resistance is read pretty accurately, and the V200 can fire resistance as low as 0.05ohm.

If you enjoy a very warm vape, V Mode will appeal to you. This provides an instant power boost to your atty, making your coils ramp up incredibly quickly. Bypass mode is also present, which will give you a mechanical mod styled experience but with safety protections built in.

Battery life was just as I expected from a dual 18650 mod, I can easily get a full day with a 0.5ohm coil running at 35-40W, a 0.25ohm coil at 70-70W gave me half a day, and a 0.15ohm coil running at the top end of the wattage range would last me a couple of hours.

Conclusion

If you are on the hunt for a uniquely styled, straight variable wattage device then the Augvape V200 is a good option to consider! If you are a fan of cars, or high performance Honda’s in particular, this device will definitely hold extra appeal to you!

Joyetech Cuboid Tap Kit Reviewed – New Taptec Feature But It’s The Tank That Shines

Introduction – The Cuboid Tap Kit From Joyetech

As is evident by looking at the Cuboid Tap, one thing is certain, Joyetech is on a mission.

This Shenzhen brand always makes a valiant attempt to innovate and in an industry as new as the Vaping Game, innovation is everything.

Not all of Joyetech’s innovations are winners. People didn’t exactly camp out for the release of the Ocular C mod with built in MP3 player but nonetheless, a very cool piece of gear.

Here comes another mod with an interesting touch, excuse the pun, in the form of the Joyetech Cuboid Tap.

It features a ‘new technology’ known as TapTec and what it’s designed to do is provide added convenience over and above the run ‘o the mill fire button. Some will see this as a convenience, while others, who forget to switch off the function before putting the device away, might consider it a hazard of sorts.

Either way, the Cuboid Tap 228 W Mod Kit is my favorite sample of Joyetech gear (although it’s only my third kit from them) to date.

The Cuboid Tap mod is not at all bad but it’s really the ProCore Aries Atomizer that impressed me here.

Build Quality & Design

On opening the standard Joyetech box packaging, I’m pleased to see the mod protected by a plastic vacuum film, which took me some time to remove, since I was far from the nearest scissors.

The Joyetech Cuboid Tap Mod, on first look, looks exactly like a miniature iJoy Captain PD270, especially since I have the Carbon Fibre Black Captain and this one is Carbon Fibre also…well Carbon Fibre look, at least.

It looks ever so slightly tacky, given the very shiny, laminated finish over the fibre detail.Joyetech Cuboin Tap review

Yet, this large display screen and massive touch pad (not in lieu of a fire button, but with it), together with the touch adjust buttons start to alleviate my dismay.

Some people might like the glossy finish but I see an entire history of my touches written all over it in fingerprints and I keep having to polish it.

One thing I can say about the material is that it’s silky smooth to touch, which makes for a great hand feel.

The carbon fibre looks like a dark teal and black to me but my friends only see black, perhaps I’m a positive person.

I find the brighter colors in the range to be somewhat cheap looking and definitely prefer the black and wood finish options.

The device is, in my opinion, the smallest most ergonomic fit for a dual 18650 mod, hardly bigger than 2 batteries, with an incredibly comfortable hand feel.

In Joyetech style, I found a second, smaller box underneath the mod that had the ProCore Aries Tank, spare parts, a spare coil head and charger inside. I hook up the tank and it looks perfecto. 

The Joyetech Cuboid Tap 228W Mod

The mod itself is zinc alloy, very light weight but with the dual 18650s inside, just the right weight.

The 510 is spring loaded, gold plated and very stable, I’ve had no problem fitting any of my tanks, definitely good quality.

You might never notice the branding unless you look from a very particular angle, it’s next to the 510 and is the subtlest branding I’ve ever seen.

The mod is tiny but the simple rectangular cylinder shape will make it a good match for any mini sub-ohm tank or smaller RDA, however I’m very much one for keeping a good kit intact and this one comes with a very cool tank.

You’ll find a big, clicky, square firing button in just the place you’d expect to find a thumb fire…on the side of the mod under the tank.

Above the massive rectangular display screen on the larger side, there is a second fire method: the very large TapTec Touch Pad, which emits a delightful vibration when you lay fingers on it.

It may sound like a bit much but this thing is cool! It can be toggled on and off and it’s great to get that little extra feedback, in the form of a smart phone like buzzzzz.

The adjustment buttons below the screen, above the micro USB port (also for updates), are also TapTec. The result is a mod with a smooth and sleek aesthetic, with flat places that secretly do things. Woe unto he who tries to use it without your permission!

There’s a Clock screensaver, just like on the Joyetec eVic Primo, which I love, it’s very classic looking and useful too.

The screen, ample and baring geometric display design details, shows mode, amperage, resistance, wattage, voltage, battery levels and materials and these options are customizable to a certain extent.

The vented battery door is a perfect pull and swing hinged door with snug and clearly marked chambers with big gold plated connections.

The Cuboid Tap mod has full temp control for your standard materials, namely Ni, SS and Ti. There is also TCR and VW mode.

Resistance bottoms out at 0.05 in TC and 0.1 in VW, not bad.

This mod not only has the touch pad feature but you can also perform operations with a squeeze maneuver. The thing is, I just can’t get this to work every time. Is it me? I don’t know.

You are meant to squeeze the sides at the bottom of the mod, reaction is slightly delayed.

From time to time I find myself in stealth mode or randomly changing settings and I don’t know why. With this number of input options, accidents are bound to happen. You clutch it weirdly while chatting and bam, you’ve done something you shouldn’t have.

The touch pad is a serious point to consider, if you’ll be pocketing or bagging the device you need to turn off that function as it will fire with even the lightest tap.

This is going to be a big issue for some people. For me, my mod is either on my desk or in my hand so I’m okay with it.

The Joyetech ProCore Aries Tank

This mini sub-ohm tank is squat and wide and, in my opinion, very pretty.

Simplistic looks with an easy bottom adjustable airflow, the tank doesn’t have a removable drip tip.

The delrin drip tip has a metal inner lining which looks awesome, the drip tip tapers toward the tip and is attached to the top cap and it feels really great between the lips. I imagine some people will not like the drip tip but I find it convenient and nicely shaped.

My tank is black with a band of uniquely etched silver knurling on the top cap…only it’s not really knurling, I think it may be decorative.

The top fill tank boasts one of the coolest refill designs yet a hinged mouth piece that you slide and flip open makes for convenient and easy refill through the ample, pliable openings in a thick rubber gasket.

Easy break down for the clean or coil change and zero splutter, gurgle or leak.

She vapes like a dream, with beautiful airflow and a very enjoyable gas mask sound (or texture, as I like to call it) together with superb flavor.

I love the look, feel and vape quality on this tank and I find the 4ml really ample and a great accompaniment for a mod of this size.

I think this tank is beautifully made, vapes like a charm, is perfectly designed and its undoubtedly the best I’ve seen from the brand.

The Included Coil Heads

Installed in the Aries you’ll find the ProC1, a 0.4 Ohm head with its sweet spot between 60 and 70 watts.

I find it to be a super vape for this range, really flavorful and with a rich consistency.

The spare coil head is the ProC4 0.15 Ohm, octuple coil head, outstanding vapor production, smooth and flavorful and by many leagues a better, more consistent vape than I had expected from Joyetech.

I’m very impressed with both coil heads, I think the coil and tank match here is brilliant. The Aries has probably got a lot to do with how much I enjoy this vape.

How Does The Joyetech Cuboid Tap Perform?

The board is responsive and thorough, it registers new coils without fail and I found all readings to be accurate.

The ramp time is great, I felt a good deal of realistic wattage through various settings, TC included.Joyetech Cuboid Tap Mod with Aeris tank

The touch pad gets warmer during hard core sessions but nothing scary.

The squeeze function I could do without. I think its the reason that my mod seems to do its own thing half the time and it irritates me when I fuss to get the settings right and a random squeeze upsets things.

Then, when I try to actually use the squeeze function, I can’t get it to work or else the reaction is massively delayed.

I love the hand feel, the touch pad and the overall vape quality and functionality of the Cuboid Tap.

It operates well throughout the wattage range and it pairs favorably with the included tank.

Controls:

    • Okay, 5 clicks on and off.
    • Menu is entered with 3 clicks on fire and adjust buttons to navigate
    • + and -fire simultaneously will enter TCR
    • Squeeze 3 times to toggle TapTec
    • Squeeze 4 times to enter menu

Battery Life and Charging

Super fast, 2 A charging means you can charge your duals in no time. I find the battery life to be considerable. I thought that the touch pad would make it drain too fast but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Above average.

How To Fill The Joyetech Aries Tank

      • Find the Aries-horns shaped marking on the top cap and push the cap away from it
      • Swing it open
      • Fill the tank through the rubber gasket openings
      • Replace the top cap

How To Change the Coil on The Aries Tank

      • Grab ahold of the tank by the bottom cap and twist the glass tank section to the left
      • Unscrew the coil from the base and replace

What I Liked

The ergonomic size and shape of the Joyetech Cuboid Tap houses some awesome innovative functions.

Not only do I love the Aries tank design, easy refill, smooth airflow but the real highlight is the great performance from coils.

The display is nice, big and easy to read and the good ramp time leads to a super all round vape.

What I Dislike

The squeeze function and the gloss finish.

I would buy this kit again but I’d like to see some trendier color schemes.

Freakshow RDA V2 by Wotofo – you can “fry” with it

Over the past few days we have already talked about a couple of new atomizers from the company Wotofo . Now I’m talking about the updated versions of Sapor , Troll RDA , and the new Lush Mini . At this, the manufacturer is not going to stop, and looking ahead, I can say that they still have enough new devices in stock. One of which is Freakshow RDA V2 .

Freakshow RDA V2 by Wotofo - you can fry with it

I think many of you remember the first version of the Freakshow RDA . A rather powerful drip with an ugly skeleton on the body could, for a while, become one of the most popular atomizers. Since that time, quite a lot of water has flowed, and today, no one will look at such a rip.

Freakshow RDA V2 by Wotofo - you can fry with it

Whether it’s an updated version. Wotofo engineers tried to combine all the popular trends of modern vaping in one device. What can I say, at one glance at this device, it became clear to me that lovers of taste have nothing to do here, since the drip is designed for “a lot of steam”.

Dimensions :

Height – 37 mm.
Diameter – 22 mm.
Weight – 68 g.

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

Freakshow RDA V2 by Wotofo - you can fry with it

Having removed the top cover of the rim, the user gets access to the Velocity – racks. Despite the fact that Wotofo was too lazy to provide complete information on the TTX base, based on the photos, we can conclude that in these racks you can install any build within reasonable limits.

Freakshow RDA V2 by Wotofo - you can fry with it

I can say that spaciousness is not an advantage of this atomizer. In such cases, you understand why you need a diameter of 24 – 25 mm. Well, okay, dripki never created for people who are too lazy to once again drip the liquid 🙂
For the air supply to the spiral meets two blowing systems. The main work, in my opinion, is performed by the lower airflow consisting of two wide holes. By the way, it reminded me a bit of Tsunami RDA, though in this database we see two slots instead of four Kennedy nozzles – a style.

The auxiliary function is assigned to the side airflow, which consists of two external slots on each side, and is adjusted by turning the upper part of the atomizer.

Freakshow RDA V2 by Wotofo - you can fry with it

As in the case of other atomizers, the manufacturer gives the buyer the right to choose. Included comes a wide delrin chaf – cap, an adapter for the 510th drip – a type of the same material, and of course, the drip itself is a type of stainless steel that can be changed to any other of your collection.

Freakshow RDA V2 by Wotofo - you can fry with it

Of all the Wotofo presented lately, the Freakshow RDA V2 is most suitable for pro – vapers. Novelty can make a good competition for the current market leaders. I can call indisputable advantages a relatively affordable price, high quality of the product, and a very good appearance of the atomizer.

SMOK X-PRIV KIT REVIEW

Smok X Priv Kit Review

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

When I first saw pictures of this mod, I knew that I wanted to try it out. It just looked like a really nice form factor as well as a very small form factor for a dual battery mod. Taking it out of the box, my initial impressions were right on. This is a really nice mod with a great form factor and it’s extremely small for a dual battery mod. It’s not Eleaf Invoke small but it’s definitely a nice compact dual 18650 mod. I also love the fact that almost the whole front of it is all screen. Let’s load some batteries in it, juice up the new Prince tank, and see how it actually performs.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • One SMOK X-Priv 225W TC Box Mod
  • One SMOK TFV12 Prince Sub-Ohm Tank
  • One V12 Prince Q4 Coil Head
  • One V12 Prince T10 Coil Head
  • USB Charging Cable
  • Replacement Parts and Glass
  • User Manual

Smok X Priv Kit Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

THE MOD:

Starting on the top side of the mod, we have a really nice 510 connection. There is a stainless steel plate around the 510 connection and it is milled into the mod so it does sit flush on the top plate. If the screen is facing you, the 510 connection is on the left side of the mod. I really wish Smok would have centered the 510 connection on the X-Priv. The 510 pin is gold-plated and spring-loaded. It has a really stiff spring and a short throw. The threading around the 510 pin is nice and smooth and so far, all of my atomizers have sat flush on it. You can get up to a 28 mm atomizer on here with a very slight overhang. Actually, because of the beveled edges, a 28mm atomizer does not look too bad. 25 mm atomizers will fit with no overhang at all.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

With the screen facing you, on the left side of the mod is where you will find the firing bar. The firing bar is something that Smok made famous and they have basically perfected it. You can hit the bar anywhere from the middle of it, all the way up to the top in order to fire the mod. The lower you press on the bar, the harder it is to fire. The firing bar has a very nice, clicky feel to it. It is well done and it is also distinctive from the other side of the mod. I have seen other mods that have this type of firing bar and it’s hard to tell the difference at first sight which side of the mod the firing bar is actually located on. That is not the case with the X-Priv. There are some clear spaces that indicate that the left side of the mod is where the firing bar is located.

On the backside of the mod is where you will find the battery door. The exterior of the battery door has a beautiful honeycomb design on it. Towards the bottom of the battery door, there is also some Smok branding. The branding is subtle and not really obnoxious at all. On the bottom of the battery door, there is a slot that you can get your fingernail into in order to lift the battery door. Once you lift the battery door up, on the interior, you will see for strong magnets in each corner of the battery door. The battery door is also lined with some sort of plastic for safety, just in case one of your battery wraps has a tear.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

The battery tray is very nicely done. Not only does it have clear battery indicator markings but Smok decided to do them in white. They contrast beautifully against the black battery tray and they are very easy to see. Well done, Smok! When you load the batteries in the mod, both batteries go in positive side down. Just like you would in a parallel mech mod but because the battery tray is wired for series, you don’t have to worry about all that mech mod stuff. I like the fact that Smok did this and I think, it just makes things easier when people are putting their batteries in the same way. I wish more manufacturers would do this, just for the sake of simplicity.

Of course, in the four corners of the battery tray, there are four magnets that correspond with the four magnets on the battery door. There are also four star screws that hold your battery tray in place. Smok also included a battery strap in order to make it easier for you to get your batteries out of the mod. I have not experienced any battery rattle or battery door rattle. The bottom battery contacts are gold plated and spring loaded. The top battery contacts are gold plated and button style. Overall, it’s a very well done battery compartment.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

Back on the front side of the mod, we have the screen and above the screen, there is some Smok branding. The X-Priv has a massive 2-inch HD color screen that is just drop dead gorgeous. I just can’t say enough good things about this screen. It is extremely colorful and well laid out. I love the size of it and I love the way it looks while you are vaping on this mod. It is just fantastic. On the screen, you will be able to see two separate battery meters labeled A and B, wattage, temperature, preheat, resistance, voltage, amount of puffs, and duration of puff. You are also able to change the colors on the screen. It’s just an extremely well laid out screen that is bright and you can see it in every lighting condition. Bravo, Smok!

Below the screen, on the right hand side of the mod, is where the up and down buttons are located. The up and down buttons have a rectangular shape to them but they also have a nice curve to them that goes along with the actual curve of the mod. Of course, the up button is located higher than the down button. The X-Priv does scroll in .1 watt increments. I would like to see more mod makers move to a 1-watt scroll.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

To the left of the up and down buttons is where the charge update port is located. I could not find any information as to what rate the batteries charge at internally but I will say that Smok did include a really nice USB cable in this kit. If I do find that information, I will update this review. For me, it’s really not a big deal because I really don’t recommend that you charge dual batteries internally. It is a nice feature to have 2 amp charging for those times you are on the go but I can not confirm that this mod charges at 2 amps.

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

THE TANK:

In this kit, you get the new Smok Prince tank. I tend to think of this tank as a really nice compromise between the TFV12 Cloud Beast King and the Big Baby Beast. For me, it provides a vape that is right in the middle of those two tanks. It also takes its own family of coils that have been developed for the tank. Neither Baby Beast nor TFV12 Cloud Beast coils will fit in this tank. You get two different coils in this kit but there are four available as of this writing as well as an RBA section. I’m sure, more are on the way but I do wish they would have included the RBA section in the kit. To make the RBA a separate purchase is just ridiculous.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

Starting at the top, we do have a beautiful cobra style drip tip that is made to match the color of the tank. Smok is calling it that because it has a pattern on it that looks like a snake skin. In all reality, it’s just a dressed up, proprietary, Smok drip tip but I have to give them credit because it does look very nice and it matches up beautifully with the tank. It is also very comfortable and I have enjoyed using it. Smok also has glow in the dark Cobra DT’s available as a separate purchase.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

The Prince tank has that slide-out, top-fill feature that Smok has made famous. This one has a locking mechanism to it that I really like. Instead of pushing down and swinging the top cap out, on this version of Smok’s top fill, there is a button on the side that you press in order to release the top cap. Once the button is pressed, you can swing the top cap out and fill up your tank. It’s a really nice improvement and it works really well.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

The top cap opens really wide and it reveals a white gasket. The gasket goes around your chimney and your fill port opening. The fill port opening is the shape of a Tic Tac and it will accommodate most bottles including the bullnose type of juice bottles. You do have to be careful with the bullnose type of juice bottle but it is possible to fill the tank with them. You also get a spare gasket in your spare parts pack.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

The bubble glass does come preinstalled and you do get a straight glass spare. I love the bubble glass. With the bubble glass section installed, you get a whopping 8 ml capacity. With the straight glass installed, the capacity drops down to a mind baffling 2 mls. I have no idea why anyone would want to run that glass unless they absolutely have to. I understand it’s the whole TPD compliant thing but I find the spare glass on this tank be absolutely useless, especially since I don’t live in the EU. I think Smok should have included a spare bubble glass, especially for the kits going to non EU countries.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

The base of the tank is where the airflow is located. There are two cyclops style airflow slots. They are fully adjustable. The airflow is very smooth and this is quite an airy tank. There is some knurling in between the airflow slots that help you get a grip of the AFC. The AFC does have stoppers on both ends and the action on it is very smooth. Make no mistake about it, this is a DL tank. There is no way to MTL this tank at all. This is for the people that like lots of airflow and plenty of flavor. The base of the tank does measure 25 mm but with the bubble glass installed, the middle section will protrude slightly from the base.

THE COILS:

  • V12 Prince-T10 Decuple Coil Head
    • 0.12 ohm
    • Patented Decuple Coil
    • 60 to 120W Range
    • 80 to 110W Recommended Range
  • V12 Prince-Q4 Quadruple Coil Head
    • 0.4 ohm
    • Patented Quadruple Coil
    • 40 to 100W
    • 60 to 80W Recommended Range

Smok X Priv Kit Review

The first coil I tried was the Q4 coil. I like this coil and I did get a really nice vape off of it. I was also surprised at the coil longevity. I had this coil in there for well over two weeks and the flavor was actually really good all the way through. In fact, I probably chucked the coil with some life still left in it because I needed to move on to the second coil for my testing in this review. I really liked vaping this coil right around 75 watts. At that wattage, I get a nice, flavorful vape and the clouds weren’t bad either. At the lower end of the coils rating, the vape was definitely anemic and less flavorful. When I tested this coil out in my Mag kit, it had a hard time keeping up on the higher end of the wattage range. That was not the case with the coil I got in the X-Priv kit. I have been running this coil a little hotter than I did on the Prince tank that was included with my Mag kit. This one seems to do a little better with the higher wattages. I have been running this one a lot closer to 80 watts and I get a much more flavorful vape. I don’t know if they improved the QC on the coils or if I just got a janky one with my Mag kit.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

The next coil I tried was the T10. This coil was definitely more my style of vaping. I like to vape right around 85 watts most of the time and this coil is perfect at that wattage. I get a really nice, saturated, flavorful, cloudy vape when I vape it at 85 watts. At 60 watts, the vape is okay but it’s definitely lacking some flavor and clouds. I did push the coil up to the 100-watt limit and while it did keep up beautifully, I just don’t like to vape that high. The vape was just a little too hot for me at 100 watts. I think the sweet spot for this coil is right around 85 watts. That is exactly where you will get the best compromise of clouds and flavor with this T10 coil. Out of the two coils included in the kit, this is definitely my favorite.

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

I absolutely love the look and feel of this mod. Yes, I know, it really is just a box but it’s the way they did the box that makes it feel so good in your hand. They really beveled this thing out and put some nice smooth curves on it. The screen on it almost looks like a smartphone, the way they beveled out the edges of it. All the curves and all the soft edges are just fantastic on this mod. Plus, let’s not forget about that awesome screen that Smok decided to put on this mod. The screen is absolutely huge, colorful, and extremely vibrant. I would say that this is one of the best screens that I’ve seen on a mod in a while now. Just fantastic. It doesn’t look like it in the pictures but when you hold this mod in your hand, you will understand exactly what I am talking about. If they would have just centered the 510 connection on this mod, it would have been close to perfection from a form factor standpoint.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

I am also extremely impressed with the paint on the X-Priv. Smok did a great job matching up the tank color to the color of the mod. The color matching job that they did is almost seamless. Everything in this kit just looks great together. The finish has been extremely durable. I have been using this mod a lot in the last month or so and this finish on it has held up just beautifully. I have had this thing in my bag, in my pocket, and I have tossed it all over the place and I have no scratches on this mod. Even the bottom of the mod where you normally get some wear and tear from putting the mod down on a table or rough surface is scratch free. The finish on it is very glossy and it has an anodized type of look to it. When it comes to the finish on this mod, they did a bang-up job on it. The X-Priv is also available in a ton of colors. Those colors include gold, blue, chrome, gunmetal, rainbow, red, and pink. If I know Smok, in a month or so, there should be even more colors available.

THE BOARD:

The proprietary board that Smok used in the X-Priv mod is one of their newest boards. When I first saw the screen, I was really excited to try it because it’s a larger version of the Mag screen. I will go over it in more detail in this section but I can tell you right now that this chipset is a very much improved chipset when compared to the older ones used in previous Smok mods.

The X-Priv has a maximum wattage output of 225 watts and a maximum voltage of 9 volts. It has a full temperature control suite that includes Ni, Ti, and SS. It has wattage adjustment capability in TC mode. It has a temperature control range of 200 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. It can fire as low as .1 ohm in power mode and .05 ohms in TC mode. There is a TCR function available and the mod does have preheat settings that include soft, normal, and hard.

THE MENU SYSTEM:

  • Click the fire bar 5 times to turn the mod on and lock the mod.
  • Click the fire bar 3 times to enter the main menu system.
  • In the main menu system, click the fire bar quickly to advance in the menu system or hold the fire bar to advance in the sub menu system that you are currently in.
  • Once you find the screen that you want to adjust, you can use the up and down buttons to make those adjustments.
  • Quick hold the down and fire button in order to activate the shortcut and access your materials.
  • Quick hold the up and fire button to activate the shortcut and adjust your preheat.

Smok X Priv Kit Review

One thing that I have always loved about Smok mods is, all their menu systems are always the same and they are very simple. If you own a Smok mod with this type of screen, this menu system is going to be extremely familiar to you. Even if you don’t own a previous version of this chipset, this is not a hard menu system to learn. It is extremely easy and very user-friendly.

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

I find the X-Priv mod to be pretty accurate in power mode. I’m pretty sure the X-Priv is doing the full 225 watts. If it’s not, it’s close enough for me to not be able to tell the difference. I vaped it next to my DNA and Yihi mods and I have to say that the X-Priv gave me a very comparable vape next to my DNA and Yihi mods. The X-Priv may have been a tad cooler but I’m willing to bet that most people won’t be able to tell the difference.

TC on most Smok mods has always been pretty suspect. In the past, the best case scenario is it was inconsistent and the worst case scenario was it just did not work. I reviewed quite a few of them in the past and the TC has just been terrible. While the TC on this mod is not quite up to DNA or Yihi standards, it’s definitely much improved over past Smok mods. I think Smok may be starting to take TC a little bit more seriously and you can tell they made an effort with the TC on this chipset. It’s not the greatest or the smoothest TC out there but it definitely does TC and it does have dry burn protection. I still wouldn’t consider this a truly legitimate TC board but Smok is definitely taking steps in the right direction. The TC isn’t really bad, it was just inconsistent but not nearly as inconsistent as it has been in the past. Even when it’s inconsistent, the TC, it’s still better than not being able to do TC at all, which has been my past experience with a lot Smok mods.

WHAT WOULD MAKE IT BETTER:

  • Center That 510 Connection
  • Spare Bubble Glass
  • Include The RBA SectionI just can’t believe that Smok made such a beautiful mod and they put the 510 connection on the left side. It just baffles me why they did not center that 510 connection. It would have been such an awesome form factor if they just would have centered the 510.Get rid of that spare glass. While I appreciate the fact that they did include a spare glass in the kit, I have no use for one that is only 2 mls. For me, that’s like not including a spare glass. Why not just put another bubble glass in the Box?

    Enough already with the separate purchase on the RBA sections. Smok, you really need to start including your RBA sections in your tank kits as well as your mod kits. It’s just not right that you make them a separate purchase. I don’t know why you don’t do it, you are still going to sell a ton of coils. For the people like me that like to build, we would definitely appreciate getting the RBA section.

CONCLUSION:

In case you haven’t noticed, I really like this mod. I have been carrying it around with me for quite some time now and I have put a lot of juice through this kit. I like the way it looks and I love the way it feels in my hand. It vapes extremely well and I’m a big fan of this new Prince tank. The coils for it are absolutely awesome and the flavor as well as the power that you getting in this kit is just phenomenal. If you’re looking for a small, dual 18650 mod that has a great form factor and an awesome tank, this is the way to go. The X-Priv by Smok is DeucesJack approved. Pick one up, and you’ll know exactly what I am talking about.

Smok TFV8 Review

After receiving many positive comments for TFV4 on the market, SmokTech recently brings a cloud beast TFV8 and it is introduced on their official website as:

The ancient volcano, Mount Vesuvius, is a cloud beast entrenched into the earth. Although calm, the 2,000 foot diameter crater fills with steam; a formidable, gasping lion. Once awakened, she erupts lava into an ominous sky, and the earth trembles with her great power.

Now, SMOK brings you this magnificent power, completely changing your vaping experience. The TFV8, is the ultimate sub-ohm atomizer. The TFV8 utilizes 4 unique, patented Turbo Engines: V8-T8 (6.6T), V8-T6 (6.0T), V8-Q4 (5.0T), and the V8 RBA (4.0T-X). These add up to make the TFV8, a real Cloud Beast!”

Package includes:

-SMOK TFV8 Tank

-1 X V8-T8 0.15 Ohm Octuple Coil Head

-1 X V8-Q4 0.15 Ohm Quadruple Coil head

-1 X V8 0.28 Ohm Turbo RBA Head

-Replacement Glass

-User Manual

-Spare parts

Features:

-6ml E-Liquid Capacity (5.5ml With TF-V8 Coil Installed)

-24mm Diameter (Glass Diameter 25.5mm)

-50mm Height

-Stainless Steel Construction

-Wide Bore Delrin Drip Tip

Compared with TVF4, TFV8 has a significant progress in many ways. It is a large vape tank, has a 15% larger diameter and a 30% larger area. It is 50mm height and has a 24.5mm diameter, and the diameter of glass spare part is 25.2mm. As a result, the size allows TFV8 to has an ability of filling more E-juice than TFV4. Also, TFV8 has 2 bigger airflow slots on the bottom, which increased 18% area.

It is a top-fill tank, when you open the top-cap, you will find the refill slot and air chamber of this tank is bigger than TFV4. This design improvement is more convenient for you to fill the tank and enjoy the bigger cloud of vapor it produced.

They are 4 turbo engines, V8-T8 (6.6T), V8-T6 (6.0T), V8-Q4 (5.0T),  V8 RBA (4.0T-X), which makes TFV8 to be a real cloud beast. V8-T8 coil, head with 0.15 atomizer resistance, is designed for use between 90-250W but vape best at 120 watts to 180 watts. The V8-T6 coil is rated for use between 50-240W but best at 110-150W and V8-Q4 vapes best between 90 watts and 150 watts.

Although the coils was recommended the range of watts for using, you could setup the wattage as high as you would like. Be careful, the high wattage you will gives you extremely hot throat hit and that is not bearable for everyone. Most vapers like slightly warm throat hit and big vape cloud.

Many vapors may be more interested in RBA head. It is great design and very easy especially for newbie to build on. The kit comes with a pre-installed Claptons., so you just need to place the coils between the posts and tighten up by twisting the screws. Please make sure the coils must not touch the deck and be checked for resistance before they fire on the a device.

Pros

-Top-fill tank

-Well build quality

-Huge vapor capacity

-Adjustable airflow holes

-Adapt to high wattage setting

Cons

-E-juice easy to waste

Geekvape Zeus Dual vs OBS Engine Review

Geekvape has earned its title for being one of the best tank manufacturers in the ecig market with tanks such as the Griffin in the past, and recently the Blitzen RTA which had rave reviews and performed exceptionally. The Zeus Dual RTA is no exception.

The Zeus Dual RTA is a dual coil version of their previous, Zeus RTA which was a single coil RTA. It still features a leak proof, top airflow and top fill design with an improved, post-less build deck.

Design:

The Zeus Dual RTA can be used as a single or dual coil RTA. The design is very similar to the previous single coil Zeus with a few minor tweaks. The first design difference you will notice is that on this version compared to the previous version, the inner cage has been removed which gives the RTA a cleaner look. Other than that, the RTA has received a slight facelift in it’s external design with most of the changes being made internally.

The Zeus Dual is available in many different colour options so you won’t have a problem finding a colour you want. It is available in: SS, Gunmetal, Black, Blue, Gold, Polished SS, Red/Black and Rainbow. I have the Blue which is more of a navy blue and has a really nice glossy metallic finish to it. The finish on the RTA is excellent and I highly doubt it will peel off.

You also have the option of using either 810 or 510 Drip tips on this RTA with the inclusion of the 510 drip tip adapter. I think the included tips work best on this RTA because it covers the lip. If you were to use your own 810 Drip tip, you may experience a slight overhang.

The build deck and airflow design at the deck is also different. On the Single Coil Zeus you have a sort of ‘wall’ with holes which direct the airflow to the side of the coils.

This is no longer the same on the Zeus Dual. The new design features more airflow and the airflow is now directed to the bottom of the coil depending on how high you place your coil. The new deck design is definitely an improvement from the previous Zeus RTA and makes the wicking process easier.

Building/Wicking:

Building on the Zeus Dual is very simple due to the postless design. You simply cut your leads at the same length and drop them in the slots. When you try tightening the leads, it starts to become frustrating because the screws on this RTA are small. The one con that postless decks have is that it requires trial and error to get your coils to the ‘correct’ height or the height you want. This means that you will need to insert your coil, remove your coil, trim the leads and repeat until you get the perfect height. I would’ve really liked to see something like the coily coil trimming tool included to make building that much easier.

Wicking the Zeus Dual is easy but wicking the Zeus Dual properly takes a few attempts. Although this RTA is very forgiving with how you wick, you will not be getting the full experience if it is not wicked properly. To wick this RTA properly you will want to the cotton to just cover the top of the wicking ports and not fill up the ports. If you do fill up the ports, what you may experience will be a rather muted kind of vape which feels almost like an ‘airlock’.

Comparison to other Top Airflow RTA’s

I have tried a few top airflow RTA’s like the OBS Engine Nano and Engine Dual so I thought I’d do a quick comparison of how these compare.

For a long time OBS has changed the game with the release of the Engine line of RTA’s. These were among the very first of top airflow RTA’s that were released and have excellent reviews. Both RTA’s performed excellent.

Capacity:

 

The OBS Engine had a 5.2ml juice capacity were as the Zeus Dual has a 4ml capacity however, some versions of this RTA come with a bubble glass which increases the capacity to 5.5ml. The bubble glass can be purchased separately if you don’t get it in your box.​

 

Building:

 

If you remember the OBS Engine dual, you will know it featured a velocity style build deck which did make building a breeze however, it couldn’t really take massive coils but installing a build didn’t require much trial and error. The Zeus Dual on the other hand, supports bigger coils but installing the coils takes a bit more effort to get it set up correctly. ​

 

Wicking:

The OBS Engine and the Zeus Dual do require you to experiment a bit to get it wicked perfectly. Since these RTA’s are top airflow, you won’t get leaking but you do get dry hits, gurgling or spit back due to incorrect wicking. The only fix to these issues is re-wicking.​

 

For spit back and gurgling: 

Spit back is mostly caused because over saturated coils. To fix this, use more cotton (thicker piece) and try to cover the wicking ports a bit more. Fixing this issue requires trial and error to find a method that works best for you.

For Dry hits:

Dry hits occur due to you using to high wattage or wicking incorrectly (Too much cotton). Most of the time it’s using too much cotton that causes this issue. To fix this, simply use less cotton through the coil (if it is too tight through the coil) and cut the ends of the wick more so that it just sits and covers the wicking ports.​

Flavor and performance:

Once built and wicked correctly, the Zeus Dual RTA performs excellent! Compared to the OBS Engine, there is most certainly a noticeable difference in flavor. Using the same juices in both RTA’s which range from fruits, RY4, menthols, I have found the Zeus to be more flavorful and potent compared to the OBS Engine. The Zeus Dual, with its cons are my pick from the top airflow RTA’s I have tried. The Engine has had its place for a long time but the Zeus Dual is definitely the better option if you had to choose between the 2. I didn’t test out the Zeus Single Coil version but I would assume that with the versatility the Zeus Dual offers (Single or Dual coil) and making wicking easier for you by not needing to bend your cotton, the Zeus Dual should be considered.

In short:

The Zeus Dual RTA performs excellent in flavor and vapor production and is the best dual coil leakproof RTA I have tried to date. The only cons for this RTA is the use of small screws on the build deck which make it frustrating to tighten your leads, the lack of a bubble glass in most editions. I would’ve love for Geekvape to include a Coily Coil Trimming tool or similar to the tool Wotofo Includes with their Recurve RDA.
