First Thoughts

I’m a sucker for tanks, always have been and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed at all when I took the lid off the box. I love the fact that it comes with a spare glass, and lots of Orings, it kinda made me all warm and happy inside. The tank itself looked really nice nestled into the packaging and to be honest I couldn’t wait to get it coiled and wicked and get vaping with it.

Look and Feel

Its looks bloomin’ lovely  I have the stainless steel one so nice and shiny even though its a brushed kind of finish. It has Blitzen in bold type on one side, and the logo on the other. Now I can be a little bit slow at times, and it did take me a while to figure out what the actual logo is… D’oh! Its a reindeer. I guess it really is a festive tank! So should I put it away until next year, then dangle it from my Christmas tree?? Nooo way, I like it way too much to dangle it from anything but a mod!

It’s a top filling tank, just remove the cap and fill down one of the two generous sized holes, I can get my gorilla bottle nozzles in there with room to spare so you’re not going to spill liquid everywhere when filling.

The threads are all very smooth on the top cap and base, and the air flow control sleeve is as smooth as butter. No sharp edges anywhere, the machining is excellent.

The top cap and base both have shallow cut out sections that make it easy to grip for unscrewing and screwing back together.

Drip Tip & AirFlow

The Drip tip is beautiful! I used to have a thing for drip tips when I first started vaping and never did quite get over it! Its made from resin, so it has that two-tone kind of depth to it, and mine is orange with a splash of black to it. The more I use these wide bore 810 mouth pieces the more used to them I actually get, and this one is very comfy to get your lips around!

The airflow holes are of the fancy ‘honeycomb’ type, 16 little holes all lined up nicely with 5 at the top and bottom and 6 across the middle. This makes for great airflow control, You can close them down one row at a time (3 holes) until you get to just one final hole, which really does give a very tight draw.

Now you do get a 510 adapter in the kit, along with a simple 510 drip tip. I am using the Blitzen at the minute with a single coil @ 0.4ohms, and I did close the air flow right down to try mouth to lung inhaling but to be honest it was just way too hot, and very little vapour, even as low as 30w. But…. with a higher ohm coil, I’m pretty certain you could mouth to lung inhale with this tank. If anyone does try a higher ohm coil, leave a comment and let me know if MTL lung inhaling does indeed work? I would try it, but don’t have any of the higher gauged wire to make a 1.0ohm plus coil, and don’t fancy making a 20 wrap coil  with my 26 gauge

   

The Deck & Fitting your coil/coils

This is a postless deck, and your coils are going to drop down into the oval shaped holes, and then you will tighten them from the sides. You can fit either a single or a dual coil, and there is plenty of room in the post holes (or is that ‘post-less’ holes) for your bigger wire builds.

So I fitted a single coil, with some pre-made twisted something or other UD coil. And I have to say this was one of the easiest coils I have ever fitted to an RTA, you do have to precut the legs, but the rest was just really simple. Now I know it doesn’t look pretty, but it vapes really well!  The screws can be loosened and tightened with the little tool you get in the box. Or if you have one of those cheap pound shop small screwdrivers you can use that. That’s what I used, much easier than the stumpy little tool that comes in the box. And it is a flat head screwdriver you will need.

The wicking channels are quite generous, you’ll be able to tuck a decent amount of cotton in, and the liquid will flow in through the side of those channels.

For some reason the deck spins round, and I think this maybe because you have these cut outs where the cotton and liquid channel sits (so once its in position it kind of all moves round together while screwing the base back on. But… I don’t think you can remove it for cleaning, and I didn’t want to try because when I start to try and strip things down, I normally end up breaking them… yeah I’m a woman, I do that!

Now my first coil and wick just worked first time! No messing, no faffing, I wasn’t too bothered about how much wick I used (just wanted to get this Blitzen vaping!) just a rough guess and I get no leaks, no gurgles, no dry hits… I guess with the higher air holes this will pretty much eliminate leaking anyway.

Fitting The Bubble Glass

Now I have been using this with the 5ml bubble glass, just because it saves me having to fill my tank every 10 minutes. To fit the bubble glass, you will need to use the weird looking little tool that comes in the box, pop a leg into each fill hole, and twist. It does take a little bit of force, but it will unscrew. Then you just need to make sure the seals are still on the tank base and top section, if not remove them from the glass and pop them on. Fit the chimney extender and pop the bubble glass on. I then also used the tool to tighten everything back down. Some people don’t like the look of the bubble glass, but it does keep the mouthpiece closer to the coils, and of course this helps with flavour. And personally I don’t mind the look of it at all.

How Does The Geekvape Blitzen Vape?

In a word ‘Brilliantly’! The flavour is really good, easily on par with some of my RDA’s. The air flow is directly positioned on to the side of the coils, with a single coil it gets air flow to both sides. This really does boost the flavour. The vapour production is pretty great too. I tend to have the air flow around ¾ to fully open, and the vape is lovely and smooth

I got a little bit of spitting when I first installed the coil, but that disappeared within the first half an hour and just left a really smooth, flavoursome vape.

I haven’t used dual coils in this yet, I’m enjoying this build and the way it vapes so much, that I’m kind of thinking ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’  Plus I’m getting record breaking battery run time! I forgot just how long you could get from a pair of batteries with a single coil!! Its fantastic

I will get some dual coils in it eventually and will update if I find any problems, but I’m thinking dual coils are gonna be just the same…. but bigger!


Final Thoughts

I’ve been using this for the last few days and can’t find a single bad thing to say about it. It works and it works extremely well.  It’s just easy to use, easy to fill, easy to build on… the flavour is awesome, it looks good,  I love it!

Remeber a Blitzen is for life, not just for Christmas! Which to be honest suits me fine!

Geekvape Loop V1.5 RDA – now it’s even more interesting

Today I will introduce you to the novelty of the company Geekvape. Immediately I note that it is a rethought version of the sensational Loop RDA . I must admit that it turned out to be much more interesting than its predecessor. Without further ado, I ask you to come to the table!

As you have noticed, our hero changed outwardly quite a bit. Now the body of the drips is cut with laser engraving, right in the style of the modern mainstream with tattoos that reached the remotest corners of our vast country. I must admit, it even benefited the atomizer’s bow. And the ring around the dome remained virgin, so this contrast adds a charm to the novelty.

Since the start, we have six variants of coloring at once, which is not at all acidic.

Drip types in the kit are two, both are 810th, both are made of ultema. What is their fundamental difference, I do not understand. True, now they are located on a small aerial on the dome, which, in my opinion, also increased the likelihood of the device.

Aspire Nautilus 2 Tank | Review

Aspire Nautilus 2 Tank

Aspire Nautilus 2 Tank

Today we review the new Nautilus 2 by Aspire. The original Nautilus Mini became one of the most popular mouth-to-lung devices of all time. So we have high hopes for the Nautilus 2.

Highlights

  • Great for MTL
  • 2ml Capacity
  • Protected glass
  • Cross series coils
Aspire Nautilus 2 Tank

The Aspire Nautilus 2 tank has to have been one of the most hyped and anticipated releases by a vape company this year. Aspire even produced a lot of drama around its release and didn’t even publish photos of it until the last minute.

The Nautilus 2 uses the original 1.8 BVC coils, so it is cross compatible with the old Nautilus. However they have also released a .7 ohm coils, so now the Nautilus 2 is also capable of sub-ohming. It’s great that Aspire is providing options for both mouth-to-lung and sub ohm vapers.

I’m looking forward to this one….. is this going to vape better than the original? Let’s find out.

Aspire Nautilus 2 Tank

Kit Content:

  • 1x Nautilus 2 tank(Pre-installed a 0.7ohm coil)
  • 1x Extra Coil(1.8ohm)
  • 1x Extra Glass Tube
  • 8x Orings
  • 1x User Manual
  • 1x Warning Card
  • 1x Extra Drip tip

Specifications:

  • Height: 53mm
  • Diameter: 22mm
  • Capacity: 2ml
  • Material: Stainless steel / aluminum
Aspire Nautilus 2 Tank

There’s a lot to love about the Nautilus 2 design. The bell-shaped top is a throwback to the Nautilus and Nautilus Mini. It’s a tank that knows its origins and shows them proudly, but at the same time will not look out of place on new overly designed mods. The looks might divide some, but I love the simplistic styling. It also has an anodized finish which gives it a rather nice matte look and feel.

As with most of Aspire’s tanks, it is machined well with no crunching or screeching of threads. The one big design change over the original Nautilus is that it is top fill. Simply unscrew the top bell cap and dump your e-liquid into the glass chamber. The only caveat with this form of top-fill is it does tend to flood the coil a little at the point of being refilled.

The other particularly nice touch is the center of the tank is not entirely glass. The bell top cap acts as a stainless steel shell, protecting the glass and increasing durability. The Nautilus 2 also comes with 2 drip tips, one that matches the tank and the other is stainless steel.

It’s a solid well-made superbly designed piece of kit, and in the time I’ve been using it, there’s been absolutely no leaking whatsoever.

Aspire Nautilus 2 Tank

First and foremost the Nautilus 2 is a mouth-to-lung tank and an amazingly good one at that. However, I was also impressed with the 0.7-ohm coils for direct-to-lung vaping – more on that later.

Considering it uses the exact same coils as the original Nautilus, you’d think it just vapes like a Nautilus in an updated shell. But boy does that new design make a difference. Aspire must have worked hard on creating the perfect design and airflow, especially for mouth-to-lung vaping – The flavor production is fantastic

I found with the 1.8-ohm coils; I was getting the best performance at around 12-13 watts. Then with the 0.7-ohm sub ohm coils at 20-23 watts.

As someone who likes both mouth-to-lung and sub-ohm vaping. I mainly stuck with the 0.7-hm coils; I really enjoyed the fact I was getting great blasts of flavor and a decent amount of vapor without creating too much of a scene when I was out and about.

The only one negative in using the sub-ohm coils is you do go through a lot more juice, and with a tiny 2ml capacity you’ll be filling this tank a lot. I get that Aspire have tried to make it TPD compliant and keep it a nice compact design, and that’s great for the 1.8-ohm MTL coils. Just be warned if you are primarily looking to use the sub-ohm coils.

That being said, almost everything about this tank smashes the Nautilus X in terms of performance.

Likes

  • Compact design
  • Great flavor
  • Perfect airflow for MTL vaping
  • Protected glass
  • Looks great
  • TPD compliant
  • Cross series coils

Ijoy Combo Squonk RDTA – Squonk RDTA – where we roll …

The company Ijoy succumbed to the main stream and developed the direction of the squonk in full swing. Not so long ago they released the adjustable squonk box on two AKB Capo 216 . So, as in the kit with him, you can buy this strange atomizer separately, which we will consider below. 

It’s called simply Ijoy Combo Squonk RDTA – did not become tricky .

Our hero is almost everything different from his predecessor Combo RDTA II . First, it became much lower and, accordingly, lost in roominess. Secondly, the changes have touched on the construction of the deck, the geometry of the blowing has naturally changed, and, consequently, the appearance.
Ijoy Combo Squonk RDTA - where we roll ...
The device looks almost the same, so it remained recognizable. Only here for some reason on all versions, which, as always, a large number, the top cap is black. This, apparently, thus found the way out in the developers creative.

So, the deck is gilded and now bezostochnaya, in principle, convenient.

Only here the top filling is realized, as in RDTA 5s, between the coils in the hole. Not the best option. Blowing the side, through the three holes on each side. 
Capacity is average, however, as the developers boast, with the above squonker will be all 14ml.

Now for the refueling through squonk pin. To begin with, I think this idea of ​​delirium – well, why and who needs it, if you can quickly pour on top. I know, I know – you say sometimes uncomfortable, etc., etc.. But nevertheless I will stay at my opinion, especially at once I’ll have enough of my own volume. 
Ijoy Combo Squonk RDTA - where we roll ...
The mechanism, as I understand it, is the next, as soon as you click on the bottle of the squonker, the liquid will start to flow into the tank, but the cotton wool on the deck will not wet. Apparently, the hole in the central shaft, through which it penetrates into the tank, is located immediately below the deck. Otherwise, the bottle would suck up the liquid in the bottle. In general, such a self, incomprehensible in meaning. 

Both pins are gilded and perform very well.

IJOY CAPO 100W Review

The design of this mod reminds of the Pico from Eleaf, however the iJoy Capo 100W comes with a bigger battery and more power. It’s a really nice starter kit for beginners, especially those looking to sub ohm. Great build quality, lots of features and super portable.

PACKAGING

The iJoy Capo 100W is available in in five different colors, including Rainbow. Inside the box you will find the mod itself, the Captain S sub ohm tank fitted with a 0.3 Ohm coil, a spare 0.5 Ohm coil, spare parts, micro-USB cable, and the user manual. Besides these you also get an iJoy 21700 3750mAh 40A battery, but sadly no 18650 adapter.

GENERAL FEATURES

The mod measures 78mm x 52mm x 30mm and accommodate atomizers up to 25mm. It has the battery knob and 510 connector on top. Power button is placed on the side and the OLED display as well as adjustment buttons and micro-USB port on the front.

Since it’s powered by a high capacity 21700 battery the iJoy Capo 100W is able to deliver outstanding performance. With an output of 100W, variable wattage, temperature control and different power curves it’s a pretty sleek mod. The menu is super easy to use and everything looks and feels very intuitive. Just three clicks gets you into the menu and from there the adjustment buttons will guide you through all the settings.

Besides Nickel, Titanium and Stainless Steel, you can also make TCR adjustments and change the wattage within TC mode. And like many recent iJoy mods, this one has upgradeable firmware, which is always a big plus in our books.

The Captain S sub ohm tank is perfectly balanced for the iJoy Capo 100W. This 22.5mm cloud chucker has a total capacity of 3.5ml and features slide to unlock top fill. Airflow is fully adjustable and the draw is pretty loose on max setting.

THE COILS

There are two types of coils for this tank. The 0.3 Ohm heads are great between 40 – 80W and they give richer, warmer vapor. The 0.5 Ohm heads are perfect for vaping up to 60W and they give a cooler experience. We recommend the 0.5 Ohm coils for beginners and a wattage setting of 30 – 40W. They also work well with high VG juices, as long as you don’t chain vape.

PERFORMANCE

In terms of performance, the iJoy Capo 100W is really great in this price range. Battery life is great as long as you vape between 50-60W and overall quality exceeds expectations. The mod is packed with all modern features and the tank matches its power just perfectly. Great for home use but more importantly it’s very easy to carry around to work or when doing errands. Firmware is upgradeable and the chip is quite accurate and responsive.

 

 

Wismec Sinuous P80 Kit Review

Wismec is one of the top vape companies, since they make everything from starter kits to high-wattage devices. They fall somewhere between the genius of Vaporesso and SMOK’s profligacy with devices that are both excellent performers and pay particular attention to users comfort and design requirements.

The P80 is a slimmed-down version of the Wismec Predator mod that took two removable 18650 batteries and had a maximum power output of 228W. The P80 looks basically like a Predator sucking in its gut to fit into a pair of pants that are way too small.

Wismec Sinuous P80 Review

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

The layout and design are the same with a few, notable differences. There’s no front-facing OLED screen on the P80, which has been moved to the side that is also the firing panel – it’s rare to see a display and a firing panel melded together, but that’s precisely what the P80 has done.

And that’s why I made mention of the P80 being a “pen-style” box mod since its shape does recall a pen-style device. The P80 has a 510 connector at the top, and since there is no extra girth or thickness of the device, it can comfortably fit a 25mm-in-diameter tank but no wider.

Wismec Sinuous P80 510 connector at the top

I would say that excluding the adjustable settings, vaping outputs and the requirement of attaching the tank, there’s not much else that separates the P80 from vape pens. And since the P80 vapes at a maximum of only 80W it also matches many other vape pens in performance, as well.

THE GOODS

The P80 can come as a stand-alone mod, as well as with an accompanying tank. I received the kit and here’s what you’ll find inside your Wismec Sinuous P80 kit:

  • One Sinuous P80 mod
  • One Elabo Mini tank
  • Two WS01 0.2ohm coil heads
  • One QC USB charging/upgrade cable
  • Two instruction manuals
  • One warning card

Wismec Sinuous P80 parts

The Wismec Sinuous P80 Box Mod: Up Close

The Wismec Sinuous P80, as I’ve already mentioned, borrows a lot from it’s older and bigger brother, the Predator 228W mod. The P80 takes only one 18650 battery, loaded from the bottom with a hinged battery door so it’s extra portable regarding its weight.

The P80 measures only 120mm (with Elabo tank attached) in height and a very slim 28mm in thickness. There are two black side panels, one of them integrates a 0.96inch OLED screen into the firing panel along with the two selector buttons and a side USB charging port.

The rest of the device has a smooth, plastic finish that feels great in the hand, and the device itself is quite easy to hold and grip. There are two LED lights that can change colors depressed into the middle of the device, between the two side panels.

It’s strange that Wismec decided to load up only one side of the device with all of its operating features and leave the other panel empty. But, moving on, the top of the device features a 510 connector pin that is a bit recessed, so when you attach a tank, it’ll sit flush with the top of the mod.

The Sinuous P80 Mod: The Internals

Using the Wismec Sinuous P80 is a lot like using any other Wismec device. Although the OLED screen is rather small and colorless, it was well-organized and displayed its variables in a large, art-deco-like font.

When you’ve turned on the P80 with five clicks of the firing panel, the top-down display will show you your vaping mode, power levels, with your voltage, amperage and coil resistance all underneath those primary levels.

holding Wismec Sinuous P80

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

Regarding vaping outputs, the board on the P80 offers the basics that come with most of Wismec devices, like variable wattage, temperature control, TCR, and bypass mode. To access the various options, you just need to click the firing panel three times and use the right selector button to scroll through all the possibilities. Pressing the firing panel locks your choice.

The firing panel is most responsive at the very top, which is excellent since you are not always pressing down on the screen and leaving your thumb or fingerprints on it. The other two selector buttons also feel great and respond immediately.

Vaping with the Wismec Sinuous P80

I haven’t used the Elabo before but I have used the WS family of coils with the Wismec CB-60. The CB-60 kit was more a mouth-to-lung box mod and the accompanying WS03 coils performed best at lower-wattages. The flavor coming off of those coils was exceptional and the WS coils have become a dependable and reliable option for all types of tanks.

The P80 comes with two WS01 coils that both have a resistance of 0.2ohms, although it would’ve been nice to have a second, mouth-to-lung coil option rather than two sub-ohm coils. The coil build on the WS01 is quite well-done, with a genuine triple build coil clearly visible on the inside of the coil.

The Elabo tank features bottom airflow and a top-fill system; only you do have to remove the drip tip to completely open the top cap, which is a great safety feature included in the tank. And since the P80 is a low-wattage device the Elabo tank has a 2ml capacity with no added extender tube.

I vaped at a restrained 50W at first, and the coils worked phenomenally well paired with the Elabo tank. I threw open the airflow vents to their maximum and felt the vapor size and quality increase significantly. I then started pushing the voltage closer to 70W.

There was a noticeable heat transfer, as the mod did get a bit warm when it neared its 80W maximum. I also noticed that the single 18650 battery did deplete rather quickly. I wasn’t expecting such a low battery life with a low-wattage device, but there it was.

How the Wismec Sinuous P80 Stacks Up

I’ve already used the VaporFi V-Grip 75W to make comparisons with other two-digit wattage devices, and I thought it would be the best option to test out the P80’s performance and functionality.

The V-Grip featured many of the same vaping outputs that the Wismec P80 features on its chipset like variable wattage, temperature control, and a bypass mode, and it also took a single 18650 battery. Visually, the V-Grip had a much more streamlined, minimalist appearance and wisely made use of its slightly larger 1.3inch screen to neatly display its information.

And looking through the specs sheet of both devices, I found more similarities than differences. The vaping outputs were the same, although there was a little more customization available on the V-Grip’s chipset due to its advanced temperature control settings.

I think I’ll have to be at my most superficial and pick the V-Grip as the winner of this contest. I liked the pared-down look of the V-Grip, and that was the only thing I could see that differentiated the two devices since they both performed exceptionally well.

It could’ve gone either way, but I instinctively sided with the V-Grip more for its looks and attractiveness than for anything else.

Wismec Sinuous P80 colors

THINGS I LIKED

Performance

Wismec knows how to build a great-performing device. The P80 is proof of that. The user interface worked very well; there was no misfiring even with the screen/firing button mash-up, and the vapor quality was superb.

Coils

I liked the WS01 coils. They were probably not the best option for a low-wattage device, although they did work great and gave off superb clouds.

Screen/Firing panel combination

Wismec could’ve made their lives easier by separating the screen and the firing panel, but they instead opted to meld the two functions together and by and large, they executed it well. The screen looks great, and the panel is most responsive on the parts outside of the screen.

THINGS I DIDN’T LIKE

Battery life

It looks like the dominance of single-18650 devices is waning. Despite the fact that the P80 is a low-wattage device that did not stop it from significantly draining the battery faster than expected.

Overheating

Again, a low-wattage device like the P80 should not have overheating problems. But probably because there is not much but a plastic coating between your hands and the battery, I did notice a significant warm-up on the P80.

THE LAST CALL

Even though the Wismec Sinuous P80 was supposed to be a mini-version of the Predator, it’s small size, and single-cell power supply did not mean that the mod still did not act like a high-wattage device. The mod and its chipset took more out of the battery than I expected.

I was neither convinced by the P80’s supposed portability. It still felt a little heavy and wide to be an on-the-go option. The coils and Elabo tank were great additions to this kit, although I think the Elabo tank would have performed better with a more powerful device.

It looks like the 18650 is on the way out, especially since vape companies seem dead-set on pushing wattage levels through the roof. Maybe the Sinuous P80 is one of the last single-cell devices we’ll be seeing for a while.

SMOK Stick X8 Review

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

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

WHAT YOU GET INSIDE THE BOX

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

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

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

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

THE ALL NEW X-BABY TANK

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

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

PERFORMANCE AND FINAL WORDS

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