Coilart Salt RTA Review | Not Just For Nic Salts

Coilart Salt RTA review

The Salt by Coilart is a single-coil mouth to lung rebuildable tank atomizer. It is also the first RTA designed specifically for use with nicotine salt based e-liquids. In order to accomplish that, Coilart made everything small on it: from atomizer diameter to build deck size, and from the build posts to the airflow holes. Everything about this RTA is engineered for use with higher strength e-liquid.

It comes with a capacity of 2 mL — that goes up to 3.5 mL with the included bubble glass – and six prebuilt coils. The coils come in three specs, each for a different kind of juice (low strength nic salts, high strength nic salts, and regular e-liquid.) Coilart lists five colors for the Salt RTA, but only the black and stainless steel editions are available for purchase right now.

Build quality and design

CoilART-salt-build-quality

The CoilArt Salt RTA has a simple, retro style to it. The first thing you notice is that it is only 18 mm in diameter; it reminds me a lot of the Nautilus Mini, minus some curves. The 2 mL capacity of the Salt RTA is impressive for a rebuildable tank of its size. To put it in perspective, the 24 mm Berserker RTA holds the same amount of e-liquid out of the box. Its construction is sturdy and metallic, and I appreciated the fact that the tank section is made out of glass. It gives some stylish points to it. Machining is on point and everything seems well put together.

There are some minor drawbacks though. One of the Salt RTAs I received came with a slightly worn-off gasket O-ring, but I found a replacement piece in the box, so that’s fine. And the ridges of the airflow ring might need some cleaning up every once in a while. Oh, and the replacement bubble glass that gives the Salt an extra 1.5 mL looks kinda funny on it – but that might just be me.

Airflow

CoilART-salt-airflow

The Salt RTA is an MTL atomizer and doesn’t pretend otherwise. It features an adjustable single hole airflow ring with seven airflow options, ranging from 0.6 to 2 mm. The ring doesn’t lock on each hole, but it does have stoppers on the smallest and largest airflow holes. The black airflow ring made it a bit hard to distinguish between the different airflow settings on the black Salt RTA, but I got used to it after a while. The bottom inside airflow measures somewhere between 1.2 and 1.5 mm and the tiny chamber reinforces the tight airflow of the tank.

While this might not be the most innovative airflow system, everything is very well thought out. Most importantly, the external airflow options are very close in diameter to the internal airflow hole, which ensures a smooth MTL experience. Just by looking at the airflow system I could already say that this will not be a tank for those after an airy vape. It might have seven airflow options, but all of them belong in the tight draw category.

Build deck and wicking

CoilART-salt-build-deck

The two-post build deck is simple and minimalistic. It is a slightly raised GTA-style deck and reminded me a lot of the build deck of the 3CVAPE Savour RTA — although everything is much smaller on the Salt RTA. Building on it is very straightforward: one coil end on each post, move the coil close to the airflow, wick it up, and you are ready to go. I’d suggest using coils with up to a 2.5 mm ID. The wick holes are tiny and your wicks will need some combing to ensure that e-liquid will reach the coils freely, especially if you are using high VG e-liquids.

Given the size (and airflow) of the RTA, anything larger than MTL-style fused Claptons will be overkill. Regular round wire of the finer variety seems to be the best option, which makes total sense for an MTL RTA – especially one that is designed for use with nic salts.

Performance

CoilART-SALT-salt-performance

I tried four builds on the Coilart Salt RTA, the three included coils and my go-to build for mouth to lung atomizers:

  • 28 gauge Ni80 (included) with 20 mg nic salts.
  • 30 gauge Ni80 (included) with 20 mg nic salts.
  • MTL fused Claptons (included) with 6 mg freebase juice.
  • 26 gauge Kanthal round wire with 6 mg freebase juice.

This one might be one of the smallest RTAs out there, but what it lacks in size it makes up with its performance. I got really good flavor out of all the builds I tried. The tiny chamber and bottom airflow helped a lot with the flavor and throat hit. In fact, I can say that I got comparable flavor to one of my favorite RTAs of all time, the Berserker Mini, which is not a small feat. On top of that, I had no leaking, condensation or flooding with the top-fill, some of the issues I have had in the past with various MTL RTAs.

The included round wire coils were a good fit for 20 mg nic salt e-liquid. I didn’t notice much of a difference between them, especially when I tested them at the lower end of their recommended wattages. I got a very satisfying vape out of these two coils and ended up installing the second 30-gauge coil when I finished testing the rest of the builds.

I am not the biggest fan of multi-strand coils for MTL vaping and I can’t say that the included fused Claptons changed my mind. They seem to be all the rage lately, but I somehow always end up having to spend time troubleshooting for gurgling. On top of that, the wattage recommendation for these coils is much higher than it should be, so keep that in mind if you use them. I spent one evening with this build and got an alright vape with the airflow completely open, but nothing special. I swapped these coils for my 26-gauge Kanthal wire and got the best out of my 6 mg freebase liquid.

The airflow is smooth all over the board. At its smallest hole it is one of the tightest MTLs I have ever had — I am not vaping on high-strength nic salts, but if I did I would probably start with this airflow option. Wide open it is still MTL, but of the airy variety. I’d say it’s just a tiny bit airier than the notoriously tight Berserker Mini at its larger hole. There is no way you can use this RTA for direct-lung inhales, so keep that in mind if that is what you are after.

Likes

  • Good build quality
  • Minimalistic design
  • Very easy to build
  • Wicks with no issues
  • Proper MTL draw
  • Really good flavor
  • Defined throat hit
  • Perfect fit for nic salts
  • Comes with 6 pre-built coils

Dislikes

  • May look a bit weird on larger mods
  • Not for direct-lung inhales
  • Included fused Claptons are overrated for wattage
  • Airflow ring will need cleaning once in a while

Verdict

The Coilart Salt RTA was kind of a surprise to me, mainly due to its size. I don’t know why, but I didn’t think I’d get a very good vape out of an RTA that’s so small. But I did, and I’d recommend this one to anyone after an easy to build and hassle-free MTL rebuildable tank atomizer that can perform at a high level with both nic salts and freebase e-liquid.

Regardless of the liquid you plan on using with it, if you enjoy a tight MTL draw and don’t mind a smaller diameter atomizer, then you will love the Salt RTA. What do you think? Have you tried the Salt RTA? Let me know in the comment section.

Review: Endura T20-S Kit – Innokin

After Endura T20 in May 2017 and all EZT in September Innokin returns with an Endura T20-S more durable, more powerful with a choice of battery tubes 1500 mAh or 2000. Innokin are improving its starter kits with every new feature.

Everything in simplicity

It must be admitted, it is easier to smoke than to vapote. Fortunately, there are products like this Endura T20-S, which try to facilitate this life-saving migration.

Compared to the Endura T20 , the design does not change, but we appreciate the new soft touch coating, very nice. Like the other, the Endura T20-S offers a resistance of 0.8 ohm. This value of resistance corresponds to a product of vape all day,  which must not consume too much liquid, nor overuse the battery.

For this T20-S version, Innokin offers a choice of 2 batteries of 1500 mAh and 2000 mAh. Above all, you can buy a single battery separately. Indeed, the kit is offered with the battery of 1500 mAh, you add another battery alone, if you want more autonomy.

The Endura T20-S kit from Innokin consists of a battery, a clearomizer , a resistor and a USB cable. It brings together all necessary for the vape in a small footprint.  

It is aimed at vapers who want to acquire something light easy to use. You can still vape with your favorite clearomizers, subject to a resistance greater than 0.6 ohm and less than 1.5 ohm.

Innokin improves a product that was already quite successful

The presentation box of the Endura T20-S is small and classic like a glasses case. The whole is simple and coherent. The contents of the box is correct but without wall charger. You will find a USB cable, a spare resistor, a user manual in English, replacement seals and a replacement drip-tip. My first impression was the resemblance with the eGo ONE . It’s small, light and ergonomic.  

 

The T20-S version loses the protective cap drip tip , which was convenient to protect your e-cigarette, but was easily lost. So no regret at this level.

The assembly is good, the set can easily hide in the palm of your hand or your pocket. The threads are suitable. On the other hand, look for no airflow adjustment ring there is none. This absence is also not that troublesome for those resistors that do not deserve a large flow of air. The flow rate is sufficiently low to allow a new vaper to vapot indirectly, as he generally seeks.

The Endura T20-S has no adjustment . The fire button is surrounded by a thin LED that indicates the charge level of the battery. The latter barely exceeds and is therefore not easily detectable to the touch.

The absence of adjustment indicates that the Endura T20-S is preset to operate resistors from 0.8 ohm to a fixed power of 18 W. Do not worry for those who already have a normal T20, the T20-S also fits 1.5 ohm resistors.

These settings guarantee a significant autonomy for only 1500 mAh. This kit S is more powerful than the T20 and above all will probably fit better to a wider range of vapers.

The pack includes

  • A simple manual but in English
  • USB cable
  • Two Prism resistors in 0.8 ohm

Somple use for a normal vape without a bad surprise

After 3 button presses, the micro LED lights up around the single button. This micro LED lights up when you are vape and shows the discharge rate of your battery . It’s not really practical and the orange comes too late. I was surprised by the red, which comes soon after the orange and only lasts a few puffs.

As for the settings, you only have the fire button to vaper anything else, and between us, it’s not more complicated than a lighter.

Let’s talk about the feeling of the vape. At first I could have micro risers in the mouth but it’s because I filled the tank too much , do not exceed the top of its windows.

The filling is done from above by unscrewing the base of the plastic drip tip. It is convenient and quite easy and there is enough space to use most of the bottles or pipettes on the market. The only drawback comes from screwing where the liquid sometimes flows a little in the end, it is not unacceptable but an annoying hair in the long run.

You also notice that Innokin provided 2 different drip tips, one of which is in one piece, which allows easier unscrewing for filling.

Let’s add that this resistance is perfectly balanced and that naturally it consumes more liquid than the 1.5 ohm of the T20. The steam is hotter than on the T20, or even a hair too hot if we chain the puffs. I would have preferred a setting of 16 W.

A remarkable autonomy

The average battery life was 4 hours for the 1500 mAh version with 0.8 ohm resistance, the same as I could see with the T20 and its 1000 mAh for a resistance of 1.8 ohm. With the 2000 mAh version, I held 5 hours.

In summary, I sprayed about 6 ml on the 1500 mAh battery and 8 ml on the 2000 mAh version. These averages are average work days, where I’m not hanging on this little Endura T20 all the time. It is not made to make big clouds but to make you just enter the world the vape without a nervous breakdown.

A recharge time really too long

Limited to 0.5 A, the recharging of the battery of 1500 mAh took me 3h30 and that of the 2000 mAh, a little less than 5 hours. It is too long !

In the book of grievances, I would also add that the end of the battery arrives a little too late. The power becoming insufficient and I could have agglutinations, sign that the liquid is not consumed enough by a weak power of the resistance. My advice is to change the battery when switching from LED to orange.

It remains that this new resistance Prism never gave me a burnt taste and offers a basic vape. The taste is quite honest for this kind of material, but we must recognize that these resistances need a good break-in.

The last point, always very pleasant, especially compared to the competition, is that it remains silent and easily concealable . I know that for some it is a real criterion of purchase.

 Conclusion

The choice becomes difficult between the 1000, 1500 and 2000 mAh versions for neophytes.

Anyway with this kit Innokin Endura T20-S, plus the battery of 2000 mAh and a small vial of liquid of 10 ml, you will be ready for a big day of vape. And it’s essential especially for less than 150 g in your pocket.

Uwell Nunchaku RDA 80W Starter Kit Review

Review for the Uwell Nunchaku RDA Starter Kit – A while back, we did a review of Uwell’sfirst-ever vape mod, the 80-watt, stick-style Nunchaku… which was, by and large, a mid-range vape device shaped like Nunchucks. It was a pretty benign, but decent single-18650 offering that did more right than wrong – hardly a small feat these days.

At the time, the mod surprised us because of how innovative Uwell had been with its legendary tank systems. The surprise came from how straightforward and uncomplicated the mod really was. So, it was REALLY surprising when we were asked to review the new Uwell Nunchaku RDAmod kit. Not because it improved on the device in so many ways. But rather because it did absolutely nothing to change it at all – this is the exact same mod, kids. Right down to the quirks and annoyances.

What’s different? Well, unlike the original release, which was paired with a middling sub-ohm tank, this Nunchaku kit comes with a companion RDA.

…and that’s it. Nothing else has been updated, upgraded, upsized or downloaded to make the Nunchaku RDA kit a different entity. This is simply the same 80-watt stick mod we reviewed under a year ago, with a decent but unremarkable dripper packed inside the box.

So, we’re not going to waste a TON of digital ink on the mod itself, since we’ve basically already done it. But we will give you a good overview of the device, who it’s for, what it does, and the like. Then we’ll get into the Nunchaku RDA, to see if it’s worth purchasing the kit for that element alone. Let’s dive in… again.

Getting reacquainted with the Nunchaku was fairly easy, since its simple operations and uber-comfortable curved design made it a pleasure to grip. We always appreciated the Nunchaku’s unique take on a very sterile type of mod design, and that hasn’t changed a year later.

That said, the pen-vape format is still extremely limiting, and the Nunchaku’s limitations are a little more glaring a year down the road. For starters, minuscule OLED display might have been adequate on the Vamo a few hundred years ago, but in 2018, vapers have come to expect more real estate to see how their devices are operating. Even “mass market” vape devices are showing more details than the Nunchaku, and newcomers are likely wanting the same.

When you factor in that the Nunchaku does temperature control and bypass modes, the needfor onscreen information is all the more important. While the display is clear and legible, its size and odd positioning at the bottom of the tube make it a non-factor.

The same complaints can be levied toward the controls, which work fine, with nice, clicky buttons. But the positioning means your thumbs will block part of the display whenever making adjustments, leading to awkward two-hand operation, when one hand should have been enough. Am I splitting hairs? Maybe, but on a vape mod designed for simplicity, this was surprising.

One area of improvement over the original Nunchaku was the MUCH improved threadingon the battery. I lamented the machining in the original review, but this updated edition seems to have sorted out the problem, so it’s not such a pain to change batteries this time around.

The Uwell Nunchaku RDA

Much like the Uwell Nunchaku sub-ohm tank was a perfect design match for the mod, so is the all-new Nunchaku RDA (time to find a new marketing team, Uwell). This understated 24mm dripper is pretty rudimentary in its appearance, aside from some branding on the side of the cap. But when paired with the Nunchaku device, it makes for a seamless, unified look.

The inside of the RDA is just as low-key, with a simplistic, two-post format that makes for easy, uncomplicated building, and a pretty no-fuss experience. The deep juice well is forgiving for newcomers, and also creates a nice “pooling area” for those who use the included BF pinto squonk with the Nunchaku RDA.

Overall, it’s a pretty solid offering. Are you going to drop that TigerTek NADA or HellVape Dead Rabbit  to get a hold of the Nunchaku? Not likely, but as a complete kit, it’s a solid pairing.

One major positive was the pair of Ni80 coils included in the box. These 0.3-ohm gems somehow performed well above their paygrade, with long-lasting, smooth heating draws that FAR outshined even the best “pro” coils in my arsenal. I was floored by how well they compared to some of my favorite builds.

That said, the RDA’s best moments came when used on other mods…

Observations While Vaping

One of our few gripes about the Nunchaku mod was how it seemed a little underpowered, even for a mod only rated to go to 80 watts. Though it was designed to offer “big cloud” performance with minimal wattage output, I never felt like it truly got up to speed. Plus, with stuttering performance above 70 watts, it had a few more black marks than a simple stick mod ever should.

Unfortunately, none of these issues have been rectified. The single-18650 format means power output can vary unpredictably. When using the standard tank coils, rated for 45 watts or so, this lack of power is less noticeable. But when running the device with a pair of included coils reading 0.15 ohms, well… you’re gonna need more power.

But the Nunchaku didn’t have much more power to give. Cranking the device all the way to its 80-watt maximum, I managed to get some decent flavor and cloud production, but nowhere near the performance I got by using the same RDA on more-capable mods. Normally, this wattage would be enough to get that build moving, but again, I don’t think the Nunchaku was putting out a true 80 watts. And the experience suffers as a result.

Like last time, the bypass mode – making the Nunchaku operate like a mechanical mod – seemed to generate a little more “oomph” behind each draw. But these were incremental gains, not game-changing improvements.

Maybe a larger battery type, or dual-18650 format would allow the Nunchaku to perform as expected. But this pairing wasn’t nearly as well-suited as the original’s sub-ohm pairing – the RDA is just too demanding to recommend this updated kit.

Bottom Line

The first time around, we gave the Uwell Nunchaku Sub-Ohm Kit a respectable (if not a little generous) score of “B.” But eight months later, with a more-demanding dripper attached, the Uwell Nunchaku RDA Mod Kit just doesn’t make as much sense. Not only is it hindered by a small display and odd controls, but the erratic, underpowered output never lets the atomizer do what it’s meant to.

I really like the design and feel of the Nunchaku, but it’s going to need a serious infusion of power and usability before I can honestly recommend it to vapers of any type.

Joyetech Cubox AIO Review

Joyetech Cubox AIO Review

Joyetech Cubox AIO Review

The Joyetech Cubox AIO is an all-in-one starter kit which features a 2000mAh internal battery and integrated atomizer with a 2ml e-liquid capacity. It adopts an anti-leaking structure with top fill and top airflow control systems. The Joyetech Cubox AIO utilizes the ProC-BF series of coil heads which is aimed at MTL (mouth to lung) vaping enthusiasts. It is available in five finishes and features quick 2A charging via micro USB.

What’s in the box?

  • 1x CuBox AIO Kit
  • 1x ProC-BF 0.6 ohm Head
  • 1x QC USB Cable
  • 1x Manual
  • 1x Warranty Card
  • Spare Parts

 

Out of the box

The packaging that the Joyetech Cubox AIO comes in is very true to the Joyetech line. It is predominantly white with a colorful product picture on the front and the usual specification write up on the back. The box is two tiered with the mod sitting in a nice protective foam insert on the top level with the accessories underneath.

The packaging is also sealed air-tight and nothing has a chance to be damaged in transit. Upon opening the box I was very surprised to see how small this kit was in comparison to the size of the box. It is tiny! The whole thing can be covered in the palm of one hand – talk about stealth mode.

The Joyetech Cubox AIO looks really good and is super compact. The build quality and overall general impression of this kit are top notch. It is very light and very cute. In no way does it look cheap or flimsy, I think Joyetech have really met their design brief here. There is nothing overwhelming about the Joyetech Cubox AIO at all. It appears very simple and I believe it will also be very simple to operate.

There are no displays, screens or selection buttons to be found. There is a nice, clicky and responsive fire button on the top of one of the curved sides of the mod. And the fire button does not rattle at all either – a definite pro here. On the other side there is a clear window so you can sight the remaining e-liquid in the reservoir.

Joyetech Cubox AIO Review

The reservoir also features a light that illuminates when you fire the mod, so you can see your juice level in low light situations. Other features of the Joyetech Cubox AIO are a micro USB port on the face of the mod and battery vents on the base. On the top there is a bank of 5 LEDs that illuminate to indicate the remaining battery level.

The incorporated atomizer sits atop the mod and is fed from the internal juice reservoir. The topcap has the drip tip included and screws off to reveal the fill ports. The chamber also unscrews to facilitate coil installation and cleaning of the juice reservoir. There is an adjustable airflow around the chamber of the atomizer, which has four airflow holes.

Overall the look and feel of the Joyetech Cubox AIO is wonderful. The build quality is high and quality control rings true with this one.

Usage

To charge the Joyetech Cubox AIO, simply plug in the micro USB cable. The indicators will light up to confirm charging is in progress. When the lights go out, charging is complete.

In order to install the coil, you need to unscrew the chamber of the atomizer. Then you need to screw the coil into the top cap and re-install back onto the mod. Remember to add a few drops of e-liuid onto the coil before installing. This will help prime to coil and avoid any dry burning.

Once the chamber is back on the mod it is time to fill up the reservoir. This time you need to unscrew from the drip tip and the top cap section will come off. This will expose the fill ports. You can fill up to 2ml of e-juice into the Joyetech Cubox AIO from the top. This, by the way, also helps keep within TPD compliance levels. Screw the top cap back on and you are ready to start vaping.

To turn the Joyetech Cubox AIO on and off, simply press the fire button 5 times in quick succession. The battery indicators and reservoir lights will turn on to signal the device is ready for vaping. Over the time of using the device, the 5 LED will slowly go down to indicate where the battery voltage is. Obviously the less lights that are on indicate the less voltage is left in the battery.

You can monitor the level of e-liquid by looking through the clear indicator to the juice reservoir. This will also illuminate when the fire button is pressed and stay lit for a few seconds afterwards. A very handy little addition on Joyetech’s behalf.

That’s it! As I mentioned earlier, no screens, no selection buttons, no fiddling and no frills. It really is as simple as that.

Performance

I have to say that this little kit is a top performer. It is ticking many boxes for me and I’m sure it will for those who try it as well. The taste off the Joyetech Cubox AIO is pretty good for such a small unit. It’s definitely geared at MTL vapes where vapor production is not a key desire. The draw on this is great for those backed off restricted mouth pulls that really help to mimic the experience of smoking an analogue. There is little to no break in time if you prime the coil properly before using it. The taste does start to get better once you break it in a little.

After filling up the reservoir, there can sometimes be some gurgling present, but this dissipates after a few more tokes. Don’t expect to be able to chain vape on this in quick succession. If I take too many puffs in a short amount of time, the coil does start to taste a little dry. Not a full on burnt dry hit, however just a reminder that these coils can take a while to re-wick. I would have liked to have tried it on a thinner viscosity juice, however I didn’t get the chance – so that may be the savior here.

Joyetech Cubox AIO Review

Battery life is pretty good. The 2000mAh battery should get you through most of the day. The saving grace here is because it is such a small battery, it is quick to charge especially if you use a 2A power supply.

I did not experience any mis-behavior or unexpected operations while testing the Joyetech Cubox AIO. I can say that portability is definitely not an issue. This thing it tiny and takes up little to no room where ever you decide to stash it. In your pants pocket or your shirt pocket – this will not be felt and you will hardly notice it is there. The Joyetech Cubox AIO is very, very discrete when out and about and certainly will not draw any attention.

All in all a very satisfying, portable little start kit which performs really well for the price point.

Wrap Up

I am really impressed with the output from this little Joyetech Cubox AIO kit. It certainly will please anyone looking for a compact little kit to satisfy those sneaky MTL tokes. It would work as a back up, as a starter kit or as a tool for those looking to make the switch from smoking to vaping. It really is a versatile little kit and you cannot go past the price point.

I would totally recommend the Joyetech Cubox AIO starter kit to anyone who is interested in trying one out. You will definitely find a place in your vaping agenda for this one, no matter your style. I hope this has helped you on your quest to find your next starter kit. Please leave any questions or comments below, we appreciate hearing from each and every one of you.

The GeekVape Griffin RTA is constructed with stainless steel and a Pyrex glass tube. The finish is machined precisely to give the tank a striking presence. The 510 connector is gold-plated and it is adjustable to allow better conductivity to fit most sub ohm devices.

The craftsmanship on the Griffin RTA is excellent with laser engraving Griffin logo on bottom part of the chimney section and Geek Vape logo on the top of the tank. The tank’s height is a bit higher than most tanks measuring at 58.5mm (2.30inches) including the drip tip. Diameter is 22mm so it will fit and flush perfectly with most mods. The capacity is 3.5ml, which is the average capacity for most some sub ohm tanks.

Containing six removable parts, the Griffin can be fully detached for quick and easy cleaning. It includes a spare Pyrex glass when needing to replace the old one. Also includes spare colored O-rings, to give the RTA a different look or to replace when there is a leak.

The Griffin comes with a wide bore Delrin drip tip, which allows bigger hits while remaining cool after chain vaping. The tank includes a 510 drip tip adapter so you can be able to use other standard 510 drip tips.

The building deck of the Griffin RTA is why this RTA is different from the other RTAs out there. The RTA features a Velocity-style two-post deck with 2mm post-holes spread out 6mm apart on a 16.1mm diameter deck, allowing room for complex structure, perfect for a dual coil build. With the big deck and 2 holes on each side, it is easy to work with, needing little effort. Each post uses hex screws to allow tightening of the coils and it includes a hex screwdriver.

There are four wick holes with two on each side, which the wick tails sits in. The e-liquid flows through these ports to saturate the cotton. The juice flow is controllable by turning the juice flow control ring above the airflow control ring.

The Griffin RTA includes a bottom dual airflow control by rotating the ring at the bottom of the tank. Each airflow slot measures at 12mm by 2mm allowing good airflow. The airflow is smooth but not as good as an RDA type of airflow. The RTA uses a top filling making it easier to refill the tank without having to remove the tank from the mod. The top filling holes are pretty big and there are two holes making it very simple to refill the tank.

Performance

The performance of the Griffin RTA is pretty satisfying mostly due to the fact that it is very easy to build allowing you use complex coil structures like Clapton coils. The flavor on here is great, but it is a juice guzzler just like most rebuildable tanks. Vapor production and flavor is not as great as an RDA, nonetheless, it is worthy for a RTA. When building it correctly, there was no issue with leaking and no dry hit.

Conclusion

The Griffin RTA is a nicely built RTA featuring easy top fill with adjustable juice flow control. The Geek Vape Griffin setup allows an easy build with its 16.5mm deck, which is probably the best thing about this RTA. While the airflow only allows for dual coil build only, this should be great for awesome vaping. For the price of $30, you can’t go wrong allowing to build a complex set up while getting great flavor and vapor production.

GeekVape Peerless Special Edition RDA Review

The Peerless Special Edition RDA by Geekvape

Today we are looking at the Geekvape Peerless Special Edition RDA. It sports a few changes to the original Peerless RDA to offer a more aesthetically pleasing vaping experience.Peerless-Boxed

Geekvape are a company based in china well known for their affordable vaping devices, atomisers and accessories. They have previously released products such as the Ammit RTA, and the Medusa Reborn RDTA and the Karma Mech Kit.

The Peerless Limited Edition RDA is available in four different “luxury colours” which include stainless steel, gold, silver and black. Today we will be looking at the silver version.

Peerless-Full

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

What’s In The Box

  • Peerless Special Edition RDA
  • Ultem Wide Bore Drip Tip (810 / Goon size)
  • Delrin Wide Bore Drip Tip (810 / Goon size)
  • BF / Squonk pin (Standard 510 installed)
  • Bag Of Spare Parts & Allen Key
  • Instruction Manual

Features

  • 304 Stainless Steel Construction

Build Quality & Design

We’ll start from the top and make our way down the RDA…

Peerless-Parts

The Drip Tips:

At the top of the Peerless Limited Edition RDA you have the choice of two wide bore drip tips which are made of Delrin and Ultem. They are both 810/Goon sized and are held in place with an o-ring inside the top cap.Peerless-Driptip-1Peerless-Driptip-2

I much prefer the black Delrin drip tip on this model, the Ultem one looks out of place in my personal opinion. Maybe a matching silver drip tip would have been a better option?

The Inner Airflow Control Barrel:

Below that is the inner airflow control barrel and top cap. This is made from 304 Stainless Steel and is held into the outer airflow barrel with a single o-ring, far too tightly in my opinion, even after lubricating with e-liquid and a few weeks of use I am still finding the airflow extremely hard to adjust without removing the inner barrel from the outer barrel.

The adjustable airflow comes in the form of three diagonal slots cut into the inner barrel which close down the airflow on the outer barrel. The two slots opposite each other are for dual coil builds and the single one is for single coil builds.

Peerless-Airflow-1As said above, the inner barrel is extremely hard to adjust. There isn’t any knurling on the top cap to aid grip and the o-rings are far too tight.

As well as this, the inner barrel is difficult to separate from the outer barrel without using something to push it through from the inside.

The Outer Barrel:

The outer barrel of the Peerless Special Edition RDA is extremely simple. Again, it is made from 304 Stainless Steel.Peerless-Airflow

It has two lots of 9 diagonal holes on either side of the barrel, along with “Peerless” engraved into the centre. I think this sets the RDA off nicely.

The RDA Deck:

Well… Where do I start? This deck is a thing of absolute beauty!

Peerless-Deck-1

You’re met with two stepped posts and four beautiful blue heat treated titanium hex screws, along with one of the deepest juice wells I have ever seen!

Each post has two sets of holes milled into it, the lower holes are elongated to accommodate wider and more complex coils if that is what you’re into, whereas the top hole is made for your smaller, simpler coils.Peerless-Build-1

If you are using the top set for the simple coils, I would recommend allowing a bit longer leg length, so that you can lower the coil closer to the deck. I also find these top holes a lot easier to build on compared to the bottom set.Peerless-Build-4

But getting back to the juice well… Blimey it’s deep! I would say somewhere between 9 and 10mm deep. It also has a channel running under the posts so that any e-liquid in the bottom can move around freely between the two wells.

This works extremely well when squonking, especially if you are prone to over squonking like myself.Peerless-Deck-2

At the base of the RDA deck are two o-rings which prevent leakage and secures the RDA base onto the outer airflow barrel. Underneath you have the usual Geek Vape markings along with your 510 pin which protrudes a nice amount.Peerless-Base-1

This 510 pin can also be replaced with a hollow pin to allow this RDA to be used with squonking devices.Peerless-Base-2

How Does the Peerless Special Edition RDA Perform?

On this RDA, I have been using a pair of pre-made alien Claptons made by Diamond Mist They have come out to 0.13Ω on the Coil Master 521 Mini Tab.

Ease Of Build On The Peerless Special Edition RDA

It’s not too hard to build on. The longer post holes at the bottom are slightly more difficult than the top holes because sometimes the coil legs pop out the slots. But when you get them in there, they are fine.Peerless-Build-2

Overall, I would say that the lower post design is a bit over complicated. I would have much preferred a velocity style post design on this RDA.

In the future I will be mostly using the top set of holes for my builds, as it is a lot simpler to use and you have no chance of the coil legs popping out whilst clamping them down.Peerless-Build-3

Flavour & Clouds

The flavour on this is pretty acceptable with the airflow closed down to about half. Anything higher than that, and it starts getting too airy.

With the larger, more complex coils, I was vaping around 70-80w with no problems whatsoever. This RDA could definitely handle bigger builds and higher wattages.

Every so often, I get a faint, metallic taste when I’m vaping. The RDA has been cleaned out multiple times and different combinations of coils, cotton and e-liquid have been used, but it hasn’t left. So I’m not quite sure what was causing this…

As for the clouds, you can get some HUGE clouds with this RDA. Wack a big coil build in there, some high VG e-liquid and crank the airflow fully open! as said above, this can handle high wattages with the airflow fully open, and in turn you will get some huge clouds!

Joyetech Ocular C:Peerless-On-Ocular

Lost Vape Drone BF:Peerless-On-Drone

What I Like

The looks. It just looks beautiful!

The depth of the juice wells. Most probably the deepest juice wells I have ever seen on and RDA, and they function extremely well, especially with that channel under the posts to allow the e-liquid to move around.

The top post holes. These offer a better clamp on your coils compared to the lower set. As said above, I will be using these holes for the majority of my builds in the future.

What I Dislike

The airflow control is a major bug bare of mine. Extremely stiff and nothing to grip onto to adjust it.

The deck. Slightly over complicated in my opinion. A velocity style would suit me better.

Final Review Verdict

The Geekvape Peerless Special Edition RDA is a beautiful looking dripper, but it is not one that I will be keeping in regular circulation. It scratches too easily, the post holes aren’t to my liking and the airflow is just a ballache to adjust.

Sense Herakles Plus Review

Sense Herakles Plus Intro

Today we take a look at the brand new sub ohm tank from Sense, called the Herakles Plus. Spoiler Alert: It’s a gooden!​

Sense are well known for their flagship tank called the Herakles, which currently sits in our “top 5 sub ohm tank ranking chart”. They also have two others, the Hydra and the Cyclone. The Cyclone which we reviewed recently, was a bit of a flop in my eyes, so I am hoping the Herakles Plus is better!

The Herakles Plus looks similar to the Sense Hydra and comes with a top fill function, unique top airflow system and a juice flow control feature. The tank capacity is about 3.5ml and the Herakles Plus comes in either Black or Stainless Steel.

Notable Remarks

Vaping the 0.4ohm Kanthal Coil (Wattage: 35-100W)

Sense Herakles Plus Coil Mesh

COMPATIBILITY NOTE: The coils on the Herakles Plus are not compatible with the original Herakles tank or the Sense Cyclone. This means you will therefore not be able to use your old coils on the Herakles Plus.

Vape setup: Sigelei 150W and Virgin Vapor Razzmatazz 0mg max VG e-juice.

  • 20-40W – Not much going on.
  • 40W – Decent vapor now and a cool vape.
  • 50W – Bigger vapor but still a cool vape and ok flavor.
  • 60W – Flavor starting to come through now and the vapor is warming up nicely.
  • 70W – Amazing clouds and a warmer vape now. The flavor is also very good at 70W and makes for a delightful vape!
  • 80W – Getting a little too warm for me now at this wattage, so I wouldn’t recommend taking the 0.4ohm Kanthal coil any higher than 80W.

My sweet spot for the Herakles Plus 0.4ohm Kanthal head was around 65-70W.

Vaping the 0.2ohm Stainless Steel (316L) Coil (Wattage: 20-80W)

Sense Herakles Plus Coil

Vape setup: Sigelei 150W and Virgin Vapor Razzmatazz 0mg max VG e-juice.

  • 40W – Nothing much happening before 40W. At 40W a cool vape with little clouds and little flavor.
  • 50W – Big clouds now and a slightly warmer vape. Flavor isn’t quite there yet imo.
  • 60W – Massive clouds and the flavor is coming through, but not as much as on the Kanthal coil.
  • 70W – Better flavor now and a warm vape that suits what I like.
  • 80W – Slightly too hot for me now, but the coil is wicking well. The flavor for me isn’t as good as the superb Kanthal coil.

My sweet spot for the Herakles Plus 0.2ohm 316L head was around 70W.

Unique Top Air Flow

Sense Herakles Plus Top Airflow/Delrin Drip-Tip

The top air flow systems on most sub ohm tanks are built into the drip tips and as such the additional air flow does not touch the coil and at best helps keep the vapor cool. The additional air flow through the drip tip does however, have a detrimental effect on flavor. The new air flow system on the Herakles Plus promises not to hurt flavor, as the air taken in from the top actually goes down a separate chamber in the chimney and hits the top of the coil. It is a unique feature and makes for a very enjoyable vape. When vaping with the top air flow open, it didn’t feel like the extra air impacted flavor at all. It seems that the new top air flow system does it’s job well!

Juice Flow Control

Sense Herakles Plus Airflow/On-Off Switch for Top Fill

The final version of the Herakles Plus features a juice flow control. This should be completely shut off when re-filling the tank from the top. This ensures the Herakles Plus does not leak. It also allows you to close off the juice flow slightly, should you be using higher PG e-juices or a 50/50 blend.

Flavor

For me the Herakles Plus 0.4ohm Kanthal coil head was exceptional and was right up there with the Uwell Crown and TFV4, our two favorite sub ohm tanks thus far for flavor. The 0.2ohm SS head, for me, wasn’t quite as good as the Kanthal head was, but was still made for an enjoyable vape.

Clouds

The Herakles Plus, like most sub ohm tanks chucks massive clouds. Even at 40-50W this things absolutely chucks clouds. If you are a cloud chaser you will not be disappointed by the Herakles Plus.

Top Fill

Sense Herakles Plus Top Fill

The top fill is easy to use on the Herakles Plus and is a must have feature given it’s rather limited 3.5ml tank capacity.

Dislikes

Spit-Back

We experienced some spit-back on both of the coils we tried when vaping them for the first ⅓ of a tank. The Kanthal coil seemed to spit-back more than the 0.2ohm SS coil. This was quite unpleasant, especially at higher wattages where the e-juice can get really hot and burn your tongue! The spit-back did stop after having vaped through the first ⅓ of a tank and the coils became fully primed and “vaped in”.

Tank Capacity

The tank capacity isn’t the biggest and at 3.5ml it is at the lower end of the sub ohm tank market when it comes to e-juice capacity. I would have liked to have seen an extra 1 – 1.5ml in the tank, given the amount of e-juice it gets through.

Verdict

This tank has been getting a lot of hype from quite a few Youtube reviewers and for good reason. The Herakles Plus has a unique top air flow system, which works well and the tank produces fantastic flavor and vapor. The vape is really smooth and the air flow provides you with a lovely wide open draw.​

The big question is how does it stack up against other sub ohm tanks and does it make our top 5? The original Herakles was outstanding and sits in 4th place on our top 5 list. The Herakles Plus, although it uses different coils, does what the Herakles does well and produces fantastic flavor and clouds. The Herakles Plus has three major improvements over the original, namely its top air flow system, top fill and juice flow control system. It is therefore a considerable improvement on the original and also provides more than the Silo Beast which we currently have in 3rd place. Does it top the TFV4 and Crown though? I think in terms of an affordable vape experience the Herakles Plus beats the TFV4, largely because the TFV4 coils are just so expensive (RBA is another story). Is the Herakles Plus better than the Crown? Because of the limited tank capacity, initial spit-back and lack of an RBA section, I can’t rate it higher than the Crown. In terms of the vape experience, it is right up there on the same level with the Crown, but overall I still feel the Crown does enough to beat the Herakles Plus to the number one spot.​

Overall the Herakles Plus is a fantastic sub ohm tank and I can highly recommend it to those looking for a sub ohm tank that produces great flavor and clouds. I also think it looks pretty awesome in black!

HOTCIG CENTAUR RTA TANK REVIEW

In-depth Hotcig Centaur RTA Tank Review

We have a new entry into the RTA tank market, which may come as a shock to some people when they stop to consider how oversaturated that market sometimes seems to be. The new entry comes courtesy of HotCig and is called the Centaur. As with any new product, the Centaur will be competing against many more established manufacturers within the vaping community. In this Hotcig Centaur RTA Tank review, we will take a look at this product in depth and see whether we think it’s something worthy of your attention.

Two color versions of the Hotcig Centaur RTA Tank

What You Get

The HotCig Centaur RTA is a new single-coil device (24mm) that offers a host of benefits for builders. If your unsure about RDA’s and RTA’s be sure to read our guide to help. The Centaur offers a single coil build deck that is large and easy to build on. That deck comes with gold-plated posts (two) that each has a 3mm terminal post. The wicking slots are oversized, clocking it a 4mm by 6mm, so builders should have no problem navigating the terrain.

You also get an innovative airflow system that includes dual-sized, 5-slot capability. You can adjust that to get the airflow needed to match your vaping preferences, making this a great customizable device. We tried a variety of different airflow settings to analyze the system’s potential benefits and were pleased with their spot-on results. We think you’ll like it too – especially if you’re one of those vapers who have very specific vapor needs.

Top and bottom view of the Centaur RTA TankThe tank section is also customizable and allows you to use an extension piece to increase liquid capacity from 2 to 4 ml. That’s a tremendous benefit since most of us go through 2ml so fast that the smaller tank would be impractical. 4ml seems to be about right for most ordinary daily use since it’s enough to avoid multiple refills throughout any individual vaping session. The extension piece can be added with a minimal effort, so that’s a real boon as well. Of course, the top-fill capability is always welcome, since it minimizes spill and leak potential.You just remove the top cap and pour the juice down through the slots.

The tank with its single coil system doesn’t require huge amounts of power, but it is recommended to use one of the best vape mods to get the most out of it!
Focus On www.urvapin.com For Best Vape Tanks.

Flavor

Flavor is not a problem either. The device has a number of airflow channels that help to preserve the juice’s original flavor in a way that many tanks do not. We tried out many of our testing favorites and were impressed with how well the natural taste was maintained in each instance. We even ran taste tests using several different devices, and the Centaur handily matched or bested each competitor.

Of course many vapers have their preference in using either stainless steel or nickel coils and each will give you a slightly different flavor, but this tank can support both, so it’s up to you. We use standard clapton coils as we love them and really think they bring the most flavor out of a tank!

Design

We pored over the tank with a fine-tooth comb and was incredibly impressed with the craftsmanship. The device uses quality materials and appears to have been designed and manufactured with the highest level of care and attention. Everything is solid and durable, and seamless from top to bottom. Add to that the ease with which the deck permits customization for builders, and you have all the makings of a great RTA offering.

Hotcig Centaur RTA Tank broken apart

The company also sent along with everything you need to get started. That includes the Hotcig Centaur RT, one high-quality 4ml Glass Segment, a handy Chimney Extension, and the spare parts and o-rings needed to get things done. There’s also a tool to assist you with construction, and the usual user manual that every buyer has come to expect. All in all, that’s quite a bit of value for the price.

The device sells for about $45, but you can find it for less than $40 if you shop around online.

From an aesthetic standpoint, there is much to love about the Centaur. It is a gorgeous piece of craftsmanship, with sleek lines and just the right amount of design accents to enhance its appeal. The box and parts to the Centaur RTA TankThe gold top and crystal-clear glass give it a high-tech yet elegant look that should make it a popular choice for those who place a premium on appearance.

 

Performance

From a performance standpoint, the device is equally as attractive. That large deck is perfect for building, and the sturdy construction makes it a great option for those who are tired of tanks that leak. Simply put, that was not a problem during our tests.

To Conclude

For a first entry, the Centaur does its makers proud. For a single coil RTA, this is definitely worth considering. Hotcig deserves credit for getting so much right in this initial venture, and we can all hope that this is a sign of even better things to come. If you’re in the market for a new RTA and haven’t settled on an option yet, we recommend that you take a closer look at the Centaur. We think you’ll like what you see.

Geekvape Medusa RDTA Review

Geekvape Medusa RDTA Intro

Geekvape has quickly become one the innovators in vaping gear, so it comes as no surprise to see them putting their own spin on the RDTA with the new Medusa.

The Medusa RDTA brings some new ideas with a raised Velocity-style deck mounted on a short shaft that rises above a 3ml juice well—so you can fill the well and vape away or drip directly through the 15mm diameter ultem tip as needed.

There is no glass section as the juice is contained in the well below the raised deck, and the Medusa is short and sweet, at 38mm high including the drip tip and 510 connector. Airflow is provided two adjustable air slots on each side of the airflow control ring and the top cap has shallow serrations to allow a better grip.

The Medusa juice well is engraved with a sort of tribal pattern around the bottom of the RDTA and the sleeve features the Medusa name in block script. It is available in matte stainless steel and matte black.

Notable Remarks

geekvape-medusa-rdta

Out of the box, the Medusa exudes all of the affordable quality we have come to expect from Geekvape. The etchings and logos are clean and the finish smooth and even, all joints mate well.

It took me minute to figure out the disassembly of the Medusa. Once I actually read the instructions, I found that the AFC ring is keyed to the base. You need to turn the ring to align some tiny marks on the sleeve and base, and then pull the sleeve to remove it. Not a big deal, but I was expecting threads.

Performance

geekvape-medusa-rdta

I’ve been putting off the review of the Medusa until the last possible moment. When it arrived a week ago, I built it with dual 3mm clapton coils at 0.45Ω, but never wicked or filled it.

The reason? I have been so sick that I completely lost my sense of taste (some who know me might argue I never had any to begin with). Regardless, I wanted to be sure to give the RDA a fair shake, and I am glad I did.

Wicking was simple as expected—I used organic cotton cut so that the tails just extended below deck, and installed the AFC ring. Adding the juice was interesting as there is no real way of telling when it’s full or when it’s time to re-fill. I used a glass dropper and pumped in the juice until it oozed up around the wicks.

With my mod set to 50 watts and got a surprising burst of flavor on my first hit. Nice, warm, and dense. I’m surprised because I expected that with it’s expansive deck that the Medusa might sacrifice flavor. Understand, this ain’t a flavor atty, but by keeping the Medusa short—the flavor is pretty good.

With the four side airflow slots wide open, the Medusa gives a pretty good direct lung hit. It’s not the most airy RDA I’ve used, and some might wish for more. With the roomy deck it would make sense to maybe have two pairs of slots on each side but as it is, with a mad wire build the Medusa might not provide enough air to keep her cool.

I like the stubby ultem tip. It has stayed cool throughout all of my vaping sessions with the Medusa. If you decide you want to get a little further from your coils you will be happy to know that you can insert a standard 510 drip tip inside the ultem tip.

Likes

  • Short profile
  • Nice fit and finish
  • Etching and logos
  • Huge deck and post holes
  • Easy to build
  • 3ml capacity
  • Surprising flavor for 25mm RDA

Dislikes

  • Keyed AFC ring
  • Air slots could be bigger
  • No fill port
  • Can’t see juice level
  • Top cap too loose

Verdict

The Medusa is not technically groundbreaking, but the aesthetics are just about right, and I like the short, wide profile. The tribal etching may not be everyone’s cup-o-tea but it’s tasteful and works well, and the stubby ultem tip is a perfect complement on the black finished sample I received.

Performance was good for my style of vaping, and gave me a dense and flavorful vapor at moderate wattage. The deck on the Medusa is pretty spacious, and actually made my 5/6 wrap 3mm claptons look positively puny. This deck is begging for something more, but…she’s not without a few quirks.

Removing and replacing the AFC seems a little more complex than it needs to be—a simple threaded joint with an o-ring would be more intuitive and less fiddly. Also, the top cap is a wee bit too loose, to the point that it turns inadvertently and might easily pop off. I’d prefer it to be a bit more snug.

Filling the Medusa is a bit of a challenge, without being able to see your juice level; and the only way you may find out it’s time to refill is when you get the dreaded dry hit.

The airflow was good with my build, but with higher wattage on a larger coil mass, it may not be enough for some high-power vapers. I seem to get better airflow on my Limitless RDTAs with single large slots on either side. IMO, it’s better to have more air than you need—airflow can most of the time be adjusted down, but you can’t add more than the RDA is capable of delivering—unless you get old school and grab a drill.

So, really, the bottom line for me is that the Medusa is an interesting idea and nice aesthetic design with a few minor quirks, which may or may not matter to you. The RDTA performs great for my mid-wattage vaping style, but with the lack of a dedicated fill system, and the inability to see your juice level, I think this should’ve been a dripper. It’s a good-looking atomizer, with a few high points, but the cons get in its way.
