FreeMax Mesh Pro Tank Review

FreeMax may not be at the top of the food chain in the vaping industry these days, but they were once one of the most highly-regarded atomizer manufacturers in the business, so it comes as no surprise that their new Mesh Pro sub-ohm tank is the first to feature triple mesh coil-heads for extreme vapor production. Like last year’s Fireluke tank, the Mesh Pro is a testament to the Chinese company’s continued pursuit of innovation.

A Look at the Contents

The FreeMax Mesh Pro comes in a stylish cardboard box featuring a picture of the tank in the color it comes in on the front, and a least of features, kit contents, as well as company information, on the back. I think the features are a nice touch, but one of them is a little confusing. FreeMax actually lists three different e-liquid capacities for the tank, but doesn’t specify in what condition each one of them applies. It turns out that the juice capacity of the Mesh Pro depends both on which of the two included bubble glasses you’re using, as well as which of the three types of compatible coil-heads. For example, single mesh coil-heads are considerable smaller in diameter than the massive triple-mesh coils.

Inside the box, we have the lovely resin Mesh Pro tank with a double mesh coil pre-installed, a spare single mesh sub-ohm coil-heads, an extra bubble glass with the same rounded design as the one that made the FreeMax Fireluke so unique when it came out last year, a bag of spare o-rings, as well as a small user manual at the very bottom of the box, underneath the foam holder.

FreeMax doesn’t include the triple mesh coil-head in the Mesh Pro kit, which is a shame, because it really is the most impressive of the three available types. They were kind enough to send me all of them for this review, as well as some stainless steel single mesh coil-heads for temperature control vaping, but the tank kit only includes a single mesh and a double mesh coil head.

In case you’re interested in an RBA (rebuildable base) for the Mesh Pro, you’ll be happy to know that the tank is compatible with the Fireluke RBA. In fact, the coil head boxes clearly state that all coils are compatible with both the Mesh Pro, the Fireluke and Fireluke Pro tanks.

Design and Build Quality

Visually, the most striking feature of the FreeMax Mesh Pro sub-ohm tank is the resin coating on the bottom airflow ring and the top cap. Each tank also comes with an 810 resin drip tip that matches the resin colors on the tank. That’s a big pro, if you’re into resin, but what if you’re not? The Fireluke tank came in good ol’ stainless steel as well as a resin version, but, from what I can tell, the Mesh Pro is only available with resin. Maybe they’ll come up with regular versions in the near future, so I won’t list that as a con.

The Mesh Pro has a diameter of 25mm at the base, but it will balloon over to a few mm more if you use the extra fish bowl glass included in the kit. The glass that comes pre-installed also looks like a bubble tank, because it’s tighter at the top and at the base, but it actually aligns with the base of the tank.

The drip tip is an 810 with two o-rings on the base, so if ever want to swap it with another 810 tip, make sure that it also comes with o-rings, or it will fall off.

As I mentioned, the top cap is coated in resin, and it’s actually a very high-quality resin that not only looks great but is also very smooth to the touch. Right under the top cap, you’ll see a big red dot. Push the top cap outwards right above that dot, and it will slide away to reveal a massive fill port that should fit any size dropper or bottle needle.

At the base, we have a beefy airflow control ring that is coated in the same resin as the top cap and drip tip. It has a bit too much resistance, if you ask me, requiring a bit of strength to adjust, but I for one prefer a tighter ring to a loose one, so I don’t consider it a con.

The two airflow slots are massive – which should please vapers interested in extreme vapor production – and feature stoppers on one side. On the bottom of the tank, we have a gold-plated, adjustable 510 pin that could, theoretically be used with hybrid mods, even though I strongly recommend against it.

There’s no denying that the FreeMax Mesh Pro is an interesting-looking tank, because of the resin and the fish bowl glass, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so I won’t comment too much on its appearance. I will however say that the build quality is top notch. The resin is absolutely flawless and the metal sections are well-machined. Overall, the Mesh Pro is a very solid tank.

How It Vapes

The FreeMax Mesh Pro is a very nice tank, but if you already have a Fireluke or a Fireluke Pro in your arsenal, you don’t really need it. Its basically the same tank, to be honest. I have both the stainless steel and resin Fireluke tanks in my collection and the differences between them and the Mesh Pro are minimal. What does set the new Mesh Pro apart from the Fireluke however are the new mesh coils, which, luckily, are compatible with the Fireluke line of tanks.

Mesh is really popular these days, and there are quite a lot of mesh sub-ohm tanks to choose from if you search for them online. However, FreeMax are the first to come up with a triple mesh coil-head, and they’ve been able to do this by figuring out a way to improve the wicking system of their humongous coil-heads.

If you look at the FreeMax double and triple mesh coils, you’ll notice that some of the wicking slots have holes in them that lead to the center of the coil head. This allows juice to flow inside the coil-head, instead of simply being sucked in by the cotton at a slow rate. This way, the juice reaches the coils a lot faster an in a uniform manner, thus minimizing the risk of dry hits, even at high power output. All you really have to watch out for is that there is juice in the tank.

Most mesh coil-heads on the market these days are single coil, for the simple reason that mesh tends to burn the cotton wicking easier than regular coils, so it requires the cotton to remain saturated at all times. That’s harder to do with multiple coils, but FreeMax seem to have it figured out.

The Mesh Pro tank is compatible with the regular Fireluke coil-heads, but in this review we will only look at the new mesh coils. The single mesh coil is the smallest and simplest of all four types. It’s not small, by any means, just smaller in comparison with the other mesh coils. It has a single, vertical mesh coil and common wicking slots, with no holes drilled through them. That’s because this type of coil-head doesn’t actually have a chamber in the middle, but the actual mesh coil, and you certainly don’t want that to flood.

The single mesh coil is rated at 0.15Ω and has a recommended wattage rating of 40W – 70W. It’s a nice coil, vapes great at 60W – 65W, but there’s nothing really impressive about it. You get some dense clouds, clear flavor, but compared to its big brothers, it’s average.

It is with the double mesh coil that the FreeMax Mesh Pro really starts to shine. This coil is rated at 0.2Ω and has a recommended wattage range of 60W – 90W. I rarely go over 80W, but to get the best experience out of this coil-head, I highly recommend setting the wattage output to at least 80W, maybe even 90W. You can vape it at the lower end of its recommended range, and it will deliver good flavor and vapor, but this thing needs power to reach its full potential. My sweet spot with the double mesh coil is 85W, but I’m sure it could handle well over 90W with no problem.

But the true star of the Mesh Pro coil-head line is undoubtedly the triple mesh coil. It is rated at 0.15Ω and has a recommended wattage range of 80W – 110W. It consists of three vertical mesh coils and features three massive holes drilled through the wicking slots to ensure that the juice reaches the coils as fast as possible, to keep the cotton saturated. The system works beautifully, as I’ve never once felt any burnt taste, or even muted flavor for that matter.

I’ve been using the triple mesh coil head at 98W, which for me is extremely high wattage, with 0 nicotine e-liquid, and I’ve been enjoying a truly sublime vaping experience. I personally am not the biggest fan of sub-ohm tanks, as I never seem to get the kind of flavor I love out of them, but the FreeMax Mesh Pro with the triple mesh coil-head is the exception I’ve been looking for. This combination is hands down the best I’ve ever tried, in terms of sub-ohm tanks. Even at close to 100W, the flavor is simply amazing, as for the vapor production, I have no words.

I’ve been lucky to try a lot of sub-ohm tanks over the years, including all iterations of the SMOK TFV tanks (4,8,12, Prince), but the FreeMax Mesh Pro and its mesh coils are by far the best. And when I say ‘by far’, that’s exactly what I mean.

It’s a shame that the kit doesn’t come with the triple mesh coil, but if you ever get the chance to try one, don’t hesitate, it is the best out of all of them.

FreeMax also sent me the SS316 single mesh coil for temperature control, but I’m not into temp. control, so I can’t really comment on how good hey are compared to other similar coils on the market. To me, they seem similar in performance to the Kanthal single mesh coil-heads.

Oh, I forgot to specify that apart from the SS316 coil-heads, all other mesh coil-heads feature Kanthal coils.

If there one negative thing I could mention about the Mesh Pro is that the double and triple mesh coil-heads can be really thirsty, especially once you set the power to 90W and over. But it just comes with the territory. You can’t expect to blow massive clouds out of thin air, so this isn’t really a con, just something to keep in mind.

Conclusion

I personally could go on for at least another thousand words about how good of a sub-ohm tank the new FreeMax Mesh Pro really is, but my reviews are long enough as it is, so I’ll just wrap it up.

Whether you like the look of the Mesh Pro or not, if you’re looking for amazing flavor and giant clouds of dense vapor, I would recommend you get it. If you hate the way it looks, just vape it with your eyes closed and just enjoy its fantastic performance. If you have the FreeMax Fireluke Pro, just get the coil-heads, preferably the triple mesh or at least the double mesh ones, and you’ll enjoy the same vaping experience.

FreeMax have done an incredible job on the Mesh Pro, and it’ll be interesting to see how their competitors try to top their achievement. In the meantime, I just hope people get to experience how great this tank is.

Bubble blowing: Paradox RDA from Vandy Vape and VapersMD

Vandy Vape and Fix_RB from VapersMD have released Paradox RDA. This is a single spiral coil with large screws, an original side blower and a set of driptypes.

On October 8, Vandy Vape presented Paradox RDA drip on its website. The device was developed jointly with the blogger Fix_RB from VapersMD. The color range was varied with two variations – black matte and steel. They decided not to burden the design with an additional fire chamber and made the 810th hole for one of the three driptypes directly in the dome. The top was highlighted with rare notches, a pair of side airflow holes were cut out in the walls. The embossed geometric logo became the decoration.

On the sides of the deck there are two collapsible racks with air channels in the shape of a donut and screws with massive caps for a straight screwdriver. In the center should be placed one spiral, fixing the legs in a horizontal plane. Adjusting the tightening is done by turning the skirt. The inside of the dome is processed under the bell, at the base there is a cut of the key. Preset BF-pin can be changed to standard.

The package includes three driptypes, adapter, standard pin, spare parts kit, screwdriver, spiral and instruction.

Main characteristics:

  • Height – 23.5 mm
  • Diameter – 24 mm
  • Tank volume – 1.5 ml
  • One helix
  • Compatibility with skonkerov

ASPIRE ZELOS KIT REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

Elegant looking mod but the tank looks like a helmet with a drip tip coming out of it. It does match up very well with the mod color-wise. The mod is rather small but it looks to be of high-quality construction. The box has two tiers and in the second tier of the box, you have the charge cable and accessories. The packaging is done very well.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • One Aspire Zelos 50W TC Box Mod
  • One Aspire Nautilus 2 Sub-Ohm Tank
  • One Kanthal 0.7 ohm Coil
  • One Kanthal 1.8 ohm Coil
  • Spare SS Drip Tip
  • Spare Glass Tank Segment
  • One Micro USB Cable
  • User Manuals

Aspire Zelos Kit Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

THE MOD:

The device has a nice 510 pin with slits on the bottom for tanks that still use bottom airflow. The threading on the 510 is stainless steel and smooth. The pin itself is gold plated and it has a short yet firm throw to it. Unfortunately, I did get some atty rash already and that is kind of disappointing when it comes to the finish on this mod. So far all of my atomizers have sat flush and seem to make a really good connection. You can get up to a 22mm tank on the Zelos with no overhang at all.

Aspire Zelos Kit Review

This mod is definitely on the skinny side but it still has an elegant look to it. It is an internal battery mod. The color is a two-tone gray and silver. Aside from the slight atty rash I have on this mod, the paint does seem to be of high quality. Other than the marks by my atomizer,, the paint on the body of the mod has held up rather well. The branding on the mod is very subtle and unobtrusive.

Aspire Zelos Kit Review

The fire button on the Zelos is tiny but it does have a good feel to it. It is made out of metal and slightly raised from the mod but very clicky. The plus and minus buttons are raised as well and they have a similar feel to the fire button. They are clearly marked with a plus or minus symbol. Below the plus minus buttons, we have the charge update port. It is a horizontally mounted port and capable of 1 amp charging. The internal battery is a 2500 mAh battery.

Aspire Zelos Kit Review

The screen may be small but it’s very vivid and bright. It has an auto flip feature to it that I have really come to enjoy. No matter which way you hold the mod, your screen will automatically flip so you can read the screen easily. When it flips, it does flip rather fast. On the bottom of the mod, there is some battery venting.

THE TANK:

The Zelos Kit comes with the Nautilus 2 tank. Aspire did a beautiful job matching the mod and tank color. The provided tank is a very restricted direct lung tank or a straight up MTL tank depending on how you set up your air flow.

I love the drip tips that are included with the Zelos Kit. They’re contoured, restrictive, tall, and narrow bore. You get one in silver and one in black. They are very comfortable drip tips for MTL vaping. Absolutely love them.

Aspire Zelos Kit Review

The Nautilus 2 tank really does not have a traditional top cap like most tanks. It is more like a metal cage that has a helmet shape to it. It does have a 510 drip tip hole on the top of it. On the inside of the helmet, there is a short chimney that screws directly into the coil. When you take the helmet off, all you are left with is the glass with no chimney cap. The tank is top fill and wide open for filling because there is no traditional chimney top cap. The airflow on the Nautilus 2 is adjustable and single-sided. It has 5 circles with each circle getting smaller than the previous. This allows you to really dial in your MTL vape. The 510 on the base is gold plated and the threading is very smooth.

Aspire Zelos Kit Review

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

I really like the look and feel of this little kit. It has a tall yet elegant look to it. The Zelos is also a very pocketable mod. I find it extremely comfortable to hold and vape with. The mod does have a light feel to it yet it is still a very solid feel. It does not feel cheap in your hand like other mods of itss size and class.

Aspire Zelos Kit Review

THE BOARD:

The Zelos mod uses a proprietary board by Aspire. It does have a full temperature control suite and it will vape all of the popular metals. The Zelos has a Ni, SS, TI, wattage, voltage, and a bypass mode. I have to say that the TC on the Zelos is in fact legit. I tried the Ni and SS settings in TC and both of them worked extremely well. The menu system is very simple, intuitive and easy to use.

Aspire Zelos Kit Review

This board will fire as low as .1 ohms and it is adjustable in .1 watt increments. The voltage ranges from .5 to 8 volts and it is adjustable in .1 volt increments. It does have some pass through technology built into it so you will be able to vape while charging but to be honest I never recommend that.

THE MENU SYSTEM:

  • Press the fire button 5 times to turn on
  • Click the fire button 3 times to lock device
  • While locked hold the fire button for 3 seconds to turn off the mod
  • Click the fore button 3 times while on to enter stealth mode
  • Press the +/- button together to access modes
  • In TC mode, press the – and fire button to adjust the wattage
  • Fire button and + button together will lock the mod
  • Mod will enter sleep mode when idle for over a minute.

Aspire Zelos Kit Review

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

I have to say this is one solid MTL kit. I especially enjoy using it in the morning when I’m having my first cup of coffee. I love having an MTL vape for that time of the day. I usually put a nice RY4 or some type of dessert vape in the Nautilus 2 tank. For me, it just goes great with a cup of coffee. In that respect, the Zelos kit has surprisingly snuck its way into my daily rotation. I say surprisingly because while I am normally a flavor chaser, I am really not a die hard MTL vaper. Just the same, I think I have found the perfect spot in my daily rotation for this mod.

The coils provided in this kit are high in ohms so battery life is just phenomenal. While I did enjoy both coils, I do find the .7 coil to be a bit overrated. Anytime I ran it above 14 watts I got a slightly burnt taste. The specs said it’s good up to 23 watts but that certainly has not been the case for me. I do like it at 14 watts and I still get a nice vape even though the coil is rated from 18 to 23 watts.

Aspire Zelos Kit Review

The 1.8 coil is very flavorful and I was actually surprised that I liked it as much as I did. In reality, I actually preferred it to the .7 coil. The .18 coil is rated at 10 to 14 watts and the flavor is really very good. The airflow is definitely more restricted on this coil but I still got a very enjoyable vape off of it. Both coils are made of kanthal.

CONCLUSION:

Look, if you are an MTL vaper, this kit is definitely a worthy addition to your vape collection. Maybe you’re like me and you just enjoy an MTL vape every now and again? If so, check this kit out. It’s a great kit to use with tobacco flavored juices because it comes very close to mimicking the feel and taste of a cigarette. In the end, isn’t that what this is all really about, staying off of cigarettes? Deucesjack approved? Definitely, if you’re in MTLer, you will have a hard time finding a better, more complete kit.

Wismec Luxotic Review – Cheap Luxurious Designed Bottom Feeder

Wismec Luxotic Review: Background

From the creator of one of the most famous and mostly used Vaping Device around the world, which is the RX Box Mod Series . The Wismec Company has finally joined the game of ‘Squonking‘, the newest trend in box mods, where the e-liquid refilling is done by bottom feeding from the mod itself.

The newest addition to their product list, the Wismec Luxotic BF Box Mod , the goal is to create a Luxurious box mod with exotic materials with a cheaper price. I was excited when I knew they are releasing this device, as I am a big fan of Squonk Mods (Bottom Feeders).

wismec luxotic review background

What’s in the Box?

What will you get on Wismec Luxotic Box Mod Package?

  • 1x Wismec Luxotic BF Box Mod
  • 7.5ml Squonk Bottle
  • User Manual
wismec luxotic review package

Key Features: Wismec Luxotic Review

What are the key features of Wismec Luxotic BF Box Mod?

Wismec Luxotic BF Box Mod

  • 7.5ml Squonk Bottle – This is a big capacity of E-Liquid for a Squonk Bottle, as regular bottles from other bottom feeder box mods only have 6ml of capacity. A great advantage that Wismec Luxotic BF Box has.
  • Exotic Door Material – This what Wismec Company is talking about including exotic material in their vaping device, you can choose from different materials like colorful marble-like Resin and honeycomb styled Ultem materials.
  • Easy Refilling – One of the biggest advantages of Luxotic BF Box Mod is having a design which will provide an easy access when refilling your Squonk bottle, a magnetic bottom door will be removed then pulling down the squonk bottle for refilling.
wismec luxotic review feature
  • Replaceable Side Cover – You have an option to replace the included slide cover with different exotic material. Hopefully, they will release more color combination user’s to choose.

Design: Wismec Luxotic Review

The Wismec Luxotic BF Box Mod is very cheap for being a bottom feeder/squonk mod that has a large portion of Resin material on its body, you can already have the feeling of having a high-end Vaping Device. This kind of designs to other manufacturers, be prepared to have a budget of $100 minimum and up to thousands of dollars just to have this nice little masterpiece.

When it comes to functionality, Wismec has nailed it again. Jaybo (Founder of Wismec) took his time thinking of what a Bottom Feeder box mod should have, he included a bottom magnetic access door for us to disassemble the squonk bottle easily for refilling it with E-Liquid.

Luxury + Exotic

Performance: Wismec Luxotic Review

My first impression before doing my Wismec Luxotic Review, at first look, I thought they have already created a Full Mechanical Bottom Feeder, but I wasn’t disappointed at all knowing that it can provide a good maximum power.

The Wismec Luxotic BF box mod has a 100 watts of maximum output, this is powerful with only a single external 18650 Battery powering up this device. This can already fire up any possible Sub-Ohm resistance builds, but I would suggest using a Single Coil atomizer with single coil builds, this way you can save battery life and avoid stressing it, one more benefit from this is you can get a good flavor out of your E-Liquid.

wismec luxotic review performance
Single Coil Performance on a Single Battery BF Mod

Wismec Luxotic Box Mod VS Similar Mods

What is the key difference of Wismec Luxotic box mod to other similar Mods?

  • Geekvape Athena box mod vs Wismec Luxotic BF box mod – The Geekvape Athena has a power of a Full Mechanical device while the Wismec Luxotic has a maximum of 100 watts, both of them will be good in terms of pwerformance.
  • Fuchai Squonk 213 vs Wismec Luxotic BF box mod – The Fuchai Squonk 213 is a regulated bottom feeder while the Wismec Luxotic box mod is something like a semi-mechanical mod with 100 watts of power.

Final Thoughts: Wismec Luxotic Review

As I am expecting this is yet another vaping device that I could personally use, with good overall design and also a great performance. The Wismec Luxotic BF Box Mod  is a true beauty with a cheaper price, I am an avid follower of vaping manufacturers producing this amazing masterpiece by using exotic materials, but it would be too expensive for me to buy this awesome mod if I can get it for a cheaper price but with the same performance.

This would probably be included in our Best Vape Mod List and can be crowned as the 2018 Best Squonk Mod.

TESLA WYE 85W KIT REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

The Tesla WYE 85 comes packaged in a two-tiered box. On the first tier, you will see the mod fully assembled. On the second tier, there is a spare battery door, a high quality USB cable, a spare glass, the H8 tank, and a spare coil.

I have to admit that when Tesla told me they were sending me this mod for review, I was very excited. I’ve always been a fan of the full-sized version of the WYE mod. I always loved the lightness and silky smooth texture of that mod. I hope that I like the single battery version just as much. Let’s juice this tank up, load some batteries into this mod and see how it actually performs.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • 1 x WYE 85W Mod
  • 1 x H8 Tank
  • 1 x EB Coil
  • 1 x H8 coil
  • Spare Glass
  • 1 x Spare Paint Splatter Battery Cover
  • 1 x Micro USB Cable
  • 2 x User Manual

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

THE MOD:

The 510 pin on the Tesla WYE 85 seems to be stainless steel or silver plated. One thing is for sure, it is not gold plated. It does have a nice spring to it with a long throw. The plate around the 510 connection is stainless steel and it sits flush up against the top plate of the mod. There is a gear graphic on the plate of the 510. The threading is stainless steel and very smooth. So far, all of my atomizers have sat flush on this mod. The top plate of the mod is held in place by two tiny star screws.

Tesla WYE 85W Kit Review

With the screen facing you, on the right side of the mod, there is some WYE branding on the battery cover. On the left side of the mod, there is some Tesla branding on the body of the mod. The battery cover is easy to use and take off. There are no magnets on the interior of the battery cover or on the battery sled. The battery cover just clicks into place. It clicks into place very solidly and there has been no battery door rattle. There is also plenty of venting present on both sides of the battery door cover.

Tesla WYE 85W Kit Review

With the battery cover off, you will see some Tesla branding on the side of the battery tray. This is a single 18650 mod and you load the cell in negative side up. There are clear battery indicator markings on the tray itself. There is no battery tray strap but it’s really not an issue because the battery comes out quite easily. The battery contacts seem to be silver plated. The one on the bottom is a button style contact and the one on the top is a spring-loaded contact. So far, all of my batteries have fit inside this battery tray very well. I have experienced no battery rattle at all.

One thing I really like that Tesla did with this kit is the fact that they included two battery doors. I think that’s a fantastic idea and it gives their customers a lot of choices as far as the look of their mod goes. My mod is black and it did come with just a plain black battery cover. However, on the bottom of the box, in the second tier, I also received a spare battery door with a white paint splatter on it. I think that’s absolutely awesome, especially when you’re dealing with a black mod. It gives you the chance to switch things up a little bit and break up all the blackness on the mod. Fantastic idea, Tesla!

Tesla WYE 85W Kit Review

On the bottom of the mod, there are two-star screws that hold the bottom plate in place. There is also some wording that says designed by Teslacigs. On the front bottom of the mod, below the up and down buttons, you have a USB charge port. This mod is firmware upgradeable but I could not find any information pertaining to what rate it actually charges at. I would say, it’s safe to assume it charges at 1 amp. Whether it’s one or two amps, it’s really not a big deal because this is a single battery mod so it’s not going to take that long to charge internally. We always recommend that you charge all of your batteries externally anyway.

Above the USB port, we have the up and down buttons. They are made out of the same material as the rest of the mod. The up and down button is an oval-shaped, rocker style, button. The up button is located on the right side and the down button is located on the left side. This mod does scroll in .5 watt increments. I would have liked to have seen it scroll in full watt increments but .5 watt increments is a definite improvement over .1 watt increments.

Tesla WYE 85W Kit Review

Between the fire button and the up and down buttons, we have the WYE 85W screen. It’s a bright screen with a great font that is easy to read. It has all of the information that you need to know which includes your resistance, voltage, watts, mode, temperature, preheat, material, and battery life. The same exact screen that you will find on the dual battery WYE.

The fire button is circular in shape and very comfortable to use. The fire button is also made out of the same material as the rest of the mod. It is an ABS sort of plastic that has an extremely smooth texture to it and seems to be very durable. The fire button has a clicky, tactile feel to it and I have really enjoyed using it. The mod fires right away, as soon as you hit that fire button.

Tesla WYE 85W Kit Review

THE TANK:

I was very surprised when I received this kit with a tank. I have to admit I think of Tesla as more of a mod company than I do a tank company. The tank included in the kit is the Tesla H8 tank. It is very Baby Beast looking sort of tank and it actually performs very similar to a Baby Beast. Maybe because the coils for the Baby Beast are actually compatible with this tank. That’s a good thing because Baby Beast coils are available everywhere and there’s nothing worse than getting a tank that uses a proprietary coil that is not widely available. The Baby Beast coils will fit in this tank and so will all of the other BB compatible coils on the market today. That gives you a pretty huge selection of coils.

The first con this tank is going to have is the drip tip. It’s a wide bore, comfortable, Delrin type of drip tip but it is neither 510 nor Goon style. Instead, it is a threaded drip tip. Really Tesla? All of the great drip tip designs on the market today and you had to go with a threaded drip tip? Absolutely ridiculous, even though the drip tip itself is very comfortable. I want the ability to run Goon style or 510 drip tips. Optimally, vapers want a Goon style drip tip with an included 510 drip tip adapter. Anything different, and it’s going to be a con. As it stands, no other drip tips fit into this opening except for the one that comes in the kit. I have tried Goon style drip tips, and Smok style drip tips and none of them fit.

Around the edge of the fill port cap, there is some H8 tank branding as well as some “open” lettering. It is on that side of the tank that you push the top cap forward in order for it to slide open. Once the top cap is open, you will see a Tic Tac-shaped fill port. It is on the small side and I do wish it was a little bigger. Most of today’s juice bottles will fit but the bullnose juice bottles will be a little sloppy when filling. Another slight con is that if you do get some juice on the top of the slider part when it is open, when you close the slider part of the tank some juice will squeeze out and run down your tank.

The inside of the fill port cap has an o’ring that holds the glass section in place. This tank does have a 5 ml capacity. The chimney on the tank is short and wide bore. It is very conducive to flavor because the bottom of the chimney screws directly into the top of the coil and the flavor from the vapor, does not have far to go. There is an o’ring at the end of the chimney that does a good job of sealing everything up.

This tank does have a screw-in type of coil system and the threading on the interior of the base is very smooth. I have had no problem threading the coils into the tank. On the outside bottom of the tank, there are two cyclops style airflow slots, this is a bottom airflow tank. The AFC is smooth and it does have stoppers on both sides. In between the two airflow slots, there is some light knurling that gives you a good grip when adjusting the AFC. On the bottom of the tank, there is some Tesla branding. The 510 pin looks to be either stainless steel or silver plated. There is an insulator ring under it and it does have smooth stainless steel threading around it. The base is 25 mm in diameter.

THE COILS:

  • E8 coil 0.15ohm (50W-110W pre-installed)
  • E2 coil 0.4ohm (40W-80W)

The first coil I tried was the pre-installed one that Tesla calls the E8 coil. It has a wattage range of 50 to 110 watts. While this coil was definitely my favorite out of the two, I like this coil right at around 80 watts. That is where it does give its best flavor. It’s unfortunate that in order for you to get the best flavor out of this particular coil that you have to run this particular mod, near its maximum output wattage. That’s not to say it’s not flavorful at a lower wattage. It is, I have run this coil at around 65 watts and I get really good flavor and clouds. I just think I get better flavor and clouds at around 80 watts. The problem with that on this particular set up is, if you run this tank at over 65 watts, you are just going to fly through batteries on this mod.

Tesla WYE 85W Kit Review

The second coil I tried was the E2 coil included in the kit. I think this coil is much better suited for this kit. In fact, I wouldn’t have minded if Tesla would have scrapped the other coil and just included two of these. This coil runs much better on this setup and it falls into its wattage range. I’ve been running this coil on this mod for about 2 weeks now and the coil longevity is just fantastic. I have experienced no significant loss of flavor with either coil but you have to remember that I am running the higher wattage coil, at a much lower wattage than I would like to. This coil I am running right around 60 watts and I get some really good flavor and clouds. Both coils give me a very wet, saturated type of vape that I like and that I normally don’t get from a typical sub ohm coil.

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

I love the look and feel of this mod. I love the silky texture that it has and I think the build quality is just fantastic. I like the fact that I get two battery doors and I like that Tesla went with its proven WYE chipset. This is a stealthy, little, single-battery mod that performs very well. I think the branding on it is very subtle and the form factor is just fantastic. If you love the feel of the dual battery WYE, then you are absolutely going to love this mod. It has that same exact feel but it’s half the size. The texture is just silky, smooth and I love the ABS Plastic Tesla used for this device. So far, the finish has held up just beautifully and I have no complaints in the looks department when it comes to this mod.

THE BOARD:

The Tesla WYE 85W uses a proprietary board by Tesla. This board is capable of 85 watts and it has a temperature range of 200 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. It does have a minimum resistance of .1 ohms. Of course, there is a full temperature control suite and it will TC, Ni, Ti, and SS. It also has three memory slots for those of you that use the TCR settings.

There is also three preheat settings that are soft, medium, and hard. The preheat settings are available in power and TC mode. There is also a curve feature available in power mode only. The preheat settings work very well and I do find myself using them a lot in most situations. I’m not a big wattage curve guy but I did test it and it does work well. Basically, there are no surprises here because this is a throttled down version of the dual 18650 WYE Chipset.

THE MENU SYSTEM:

  • Click the fire button 5 times to turn the mod on and lock the mod.
  • Hold down the minus button with the fire button to lock the keys. The mod will still fire but you will not be able to adjust the wattage or temperature.
  • Click the fire button three times to have access to all the settings.
  • Once you have access use the +/- to scroll through the settings.
  • Once you find the setting you want to adjust, click the fire button to select that setting.
  • Once you select the setting you want to adjust, use the plus minus button to make adjustments.

Tesla WYE 85W Kit Review

This is an extremely simple and very intuitive menu system. You can literally sit down with this mod for 2 minutes and figure it out without looking at the instruction booklet. The menu system on the WYE is just extremely well done and very user friendly, just like its big brother.

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

I have to say that I really enjoy vaping this mod in power mode. I find it to be very accurate and I’m sure it probably does do the full 85 watts with the right battery. TC mode on this mod actually blew me away. The reason I was so surprised at the quality of the TC that this mod puts out is because I was expecting the TC to be very much along the lines of the dual 18650 version of this mod. The TC on the dual 18650 version was pretty decent. It wasn’t groundbreaking and it was what I would call a second tier TC system. That’s not the case with this mod at all. Tesla did something with their TC and they definitely tweaked it. The TC on this mod is on point and accurate.

Right now, I have my brand new Vandy Vape Kylin Mini on top of this mod ohming out at to .28 ohms with a single, fused, stainless steel, Clapton coil. I have the wattage set at 50 and the temperature set at 500 degrees Fahrenheit. I am getting a fantastic TC vape off of this setup. The vapor is lush, saturated, flavourful, and extremely cloudy. This thing just vapes fantastic in TC mode. Great job, Tesla!

WHAT WOULD MAKE IT BETTER:

Tesla, you have to get rid of that screw in drip tip. Vapers just don’t want that type of drip tip and if you lose it, it makes the whole tank pretty useless. What happens if you strip the threading on the DT? Basically, you can throw the tank out. If you are going to go with that type of drip tip, you have to at the very least, include one extra DT just in case you wind up losing it or stripping it. I would highly recommend that you just get rid of that drip tip all together. Go with a Goon style drip tip and include a 510 drip tip adapter. Do that, and this kit basically doesn’t have any significant cons.

CONCLUSION:

I really wish I received this kit a month or two earlier. Had I received this kit earlier or if it was released earlier, it would have definitely made my Best Of 2017 List. It really is that good of a mod. In fact, right now, it is basically one of my all-time favorite single-battery mods. I would definitely have to rank it in the top 5 of my all-time favorite single battery mods. I love the look and feel of this mod and I am very impressed with its performance. After buying this kit, all you really have to do is get some juice and a quality 18650 battery. Do that, and you are ready to vape and vape well.

I have been seeing this kit for just under $50 and I have to say that at that price point, it’s an awesome deal. You get everything you need to start vaping and you get an extremely competent setup, all in one box. I think it’s a very good value at that price point. Do yourself a favor and pick one of these kits up, if you are in need of a high-quality single battery setup. This one will more than fit that bill. It’s for all the low wattage vapers and the vapers that love running single coils. If that sounds like you, then the Tesla WYE 85W Kit is DeucesJack approved.

IJOY ELF MTL Tank Review

IJOY ELF Tank Intro

It seems like IJOY has been very busy lately, with a lot of focus on big, sub-ohm tanks, powerful mods (like the Zenith 300W), big RDTAs and RDAs. Amidst those titans, it’s easy to overlook the relatively tiny ELF MTL tank.

The ELF MTL tank is just what you might expect from the name: a smallish 2 mL tank that aims to provide the elusive mouth-to-lung draw that is especially important to many ex-smokers looking for the analog experience. Many have tried to replicate the perfect MTL draw and many have failed. It’s especially frustrating for the MTL vapers, and the search can get expensive.

I realized that this tank is designed much like the Nautilus 2 and takes the Nautilus Mini-type coils. I don’t have that tank, so I will review this as is.

IJOY ELF Tank Specs and Features

Notable Remarks

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

First impression is that the ELF MTL is a nice little tank. Made from stainless steel with a gold plated 510 pin, the fit and finish are very good. The little ELF has pretty good heft and everything lines up as it should.

Capacity of the ELF is 2 mL, so it is EU compliant. Normally I would call this a negative, but I expect that 2 mL of liquid will suffice for an MTL tank running at lower wattage. I don’t expect it to drink liquid.

The ELF has a single row of graduated air holes in the base, with a ratcheting (clicky) AFC ring. The smallest hole is so small I won’t even try to measure it, but it looks no larger than a half millimeter, maybe smaller. The remaining holes gradually increase in size to about a millimeter or so.

The review sample is brushed stainless steel with a black sleeve and the curved drip tip is a swirling resin that is predominately red and green with hints of blue. The ELF looks great.

The tank will accept any standard 510 drip tip, but you likely won’t want any other after trying the supplied tip – it’s smooth, rounded shape has an incredibly comfortable mouth feel. I’m using the supplied tip.

Lastly, I am encouraged by the supplied coil resistance values: one 0.7Ω coil and one 0.5Ω coil, which means I can likely get long battery life from a small single-cell mod, maybe all day.

Performance

iJoy-ELF-tank

This should be simple.

I mount the ELF to my Smok O-sub 40W mod and fill it with some max VG custard with 3 mg nicotine. I want to check the MTL performance right out of the gate, so I set the mod for 15 watts using the pre-installed 0.7Ω Nautilus-style coil. I click the airflow ring to expose only the smallest hole and wait a few minutes for my coil to saturate.

First hit and I am happy to report that the ELF gives a faithful MTL hit. Not too warm, good vapor and flavor with decent throat hit. I open the AFC to expose the next largest air hole (two holes exposed) and take another drag. I’m getting a bit less warmth and throat hit, but the ELF is still restrictive enough get a nice MTL draw with decent flavor.

With any more than three of the air holes exposed, I find that the ELF is no longer effective for MTL vaping. Fully opened, with all five holes exposed, the ELF gives a very restrictive direct lung hit, but it is obviously not suited. Just for kicks, I “crank” the wattage up to 30 watts, with the air wide open and take a vape. It’s warm, with a bit more vapor but after a few more hits my custard is starting to take on a caramelized flavor, yeah, almost burnt.

Well, I had to try it.

Likes

  • Stylish
  • Nice fit and finish
  • Rounded resin drip tip
  • I compliant
  • Nice MTL performance
  • Nautilus Mini compatible

Dislikes

  • Swapping coils with a full tank can be messy

It is exactly what it is

Aesthetically the ELF reminds me a lot of the SMOK Helmet tank, but with a narrower drip tip. Both are 2 mL tanks that have a metal sleeve covering the tank, and the Helmet I own is the same black and stainless color scheme. The difference is the ELF’s ability to provide a true MTL experience while the Helmet will not.

The cynics among us probably noticed that I only had one “dislike”. You may argue that it doesn’t hold enough liquid, it doesn’t do direct lung hits, it doesn’t give clouds for days… and you would be correct. I would answer by reminding you that the ELF is not intended to be used for any that, and urge you to stay away. For its intended use, I truly cannot find a negative.

True to its name, this little tank excels at providing an honest MTL draw, but can also be opened up for a restrictive lung hit. Again, it’s not meant for lung hits – but it can be done.

The ELF is simple to use, doesn’t leak, and is perfect for those that don’t want to fuss with pod mods or are tired of throw away cig-a-likes. Maybe even mom or dad, who are struggling to quit analogs. With some higher nic liquid, and a brief introduction they will be on their way to a hassle-free vaping experience that does a decent job mimicing a draw similar to smoking. Once again, this tank is desinged just like the Nautilus Mini 2 and has the same pros/cons. From the various prices I see online, the ELF is a little bit cheaper retail than the Nautilus Mini 2, but there are sales that make the difference even greater in favor of the IJOY ELF. Take that for what it’s worth.
