VANDY VAPE KYLIN MINI REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

I’ve always been into single coil tanks and RDA’s. So when I heard Vandy Vape was working on a mini version of the Kylin, I was definitely excited about it. When I opened the box, I have to say that I was quite impressed with it as soon as I put it in my hand. When I unscrewed the base and saw that deck, it just looked awesome to me. Just by the way it’s built and the curvature of where your coil is being held scream flavor as soon as you take a look at it. I can’t wait to put a coil in it and see how it actually vapes.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • One Vandy Vape Kylin RTA
  • One Chimney Extension
  • One Spare 2ml Glass Section
  • One 6ml Glass Section
  • Drip Tip Set
  • One Hex Key
  • Spare Part Pack
  • User Manual

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

The Kylin Mini comes with a beautiful, Goon-style, resin drip tip pre-installed. The resin drip tip is on the tall side and it does a really good job of keeping your lips off of the top cap. The resin drip tip has an 11 mm bore. The other included drip tip is a black Goon or 810 style drip tip. It has ribbing going around the outer circumference of it. The ribbing provides some texture and it is also extremely comfortable. It is shorter than the resin drip tip for those vapers that like a shorter, chuff style, type of drip tip. The black drip tip has a 10 mm bore.

For those of you that still like to run your traditional 510 drip tips, there is a 510 drip tip adapter included with your purchase of the Kylin Mini RTA. That is the one thing I always like about purchasing Vandy Vape atomizers, they always give you a bunch of choices when it comes to DT’s.

Vandy Vape Kylin Mini Review

With your Kylin Mini, you will receive 2 tank glass sections. The pre-installed one is a straight glass and it has a capacity of 3 mls. The extra glass section is a bubble style glass and it has a 5 ml capacity. The bubble glass option allows you to expand the capacity of your tank without having any negative effect on flavor. Both tank sections are made out of Pyrex glass. I really have no use for the 3ml glass section. I would have appreciated it if the spare glass was just another bubble glass section. I do understand why Vandy Vape packaged it like that, not everyone likes the bubble glass look. I just really like the extra capacity.

The top cap on Kylin Mini has some beautiful knurling on the exterior. It is a very heavy knurling that gives you a great grip on the top cap when refilling the tank. There is also some Vandy Vape branding on the top of the top cap. There is a little bit of a raised platform with an o’ring inside to secure your Goon or 810 style drip tips. Even though there is a platform, most of your aftermarket drip tips should still look good on the Kylin Mini. On the interior of the top cap, there is an o’ring along with some beautiful threading that provides a snug fit when it is screwed onto the top fill port cap. As always with Vandy Vape, the machining is top notch.

Vandy Vape Kylin Mini Review

With the top cap off, there are two very big half circle-shaped fill ports. These fill ports will accommodate any type of juice bottle on the market today including the bullnose types of bottles. The chimney is a medium bore chimney, that is definitely geared more towards flavor. The chimney drops down to an extremely conically shaped barrel. On the exterior of the barrel, there is a Vandy Vape logo and some Kylin branding. The barrel attaches to the base with some very smooth threading.

Vandy Vape Kylin Mini Review

On the bottom interior of the base, there is a thick o’ring that does a great job of keeping the glass in place as well as ensuring against any leaking. The AFC ring around the circumference of the base has some knurling on it that allows the user to get a good grip to adjust the AFC ring. The airflow on the base is cyclops style and fully adjustable. The airflow slots measure 15 mm by 2 mm. The action on the AFC is nice and smooth with stoppers on both ends. On the bottom of the base, there is some Kylin and Vandy Vape branding as well as a serial number. The base measures 24 mm in diameter and with the bubble glass installed, the Kylin Mini is 26 mm in the middle.

Vandy Vape Kylin Mini Review

The 510 connection on the Kylin Mini is gold plated and slotted for a flat head screwdriver. It is surrounded by an insulator ring and some stainless steel threading. The stainless steel threading on the base is very smooth and this atomizer should sit flush on all of your mods. On the bottom of the Kylin Mini, there is some Kylin Mini branding as well as a serial number.

THE DECK:

The whole deck on the Kylin Mini is 25 karat gold plated. This is a single coil only deck and its main objective is flavor. The deck has a cradle-like shape to it, with a honeycomb airflow design. The shape of the deck actually cradles your coil for superior flavor. It is like a slot that is designed specifically for a coil and it takes the airflow from all sides of the coil. It’s a very impressive design. There are 7 rows of 3 airflow holes on your deck, for a total of 21 holes. These holes create an extremely smooth airflow and they make any flavor that you put in this atomizer pop. Vandy Vape calls it their honeycomb design.

Vandy Vape Kylin Mini Review

This is a postless style deck with Philips head M4 screws that are accessed from the side. The spare deck screws are hex grub screws and there is an included Allen key. The screws are very nice and of high quality. The screws are also gold plated and they are beautifully threaded. This type of deck makes building and coil placement extremely easy. The wicking ports are located on each end of the deck. This is also an extremely easy atomizer to wick.

Vandy Vape Kylin Mini Review

BUILDING AND WICKING:

Building on the Kylin Mini is a breeze. It’s a postless deck so the toughest part is getting the correct lead length. Here is a pro tip, take your drip tip and measure the lead against the skinny side of the drip tip. Clip your lead where the drip starts to get fat. This will give you the perfect length for your leads. Now, all you have to do is drop your coils in the terminals and tighten up those big deck screws.

Wicking is straightforward as well but it can be a little on the tricky side. You really have to take care and make sure your wick is the correct length. If it is too long, you will get a dry hit. Definitely better for your wick to be on the short side as opposed to the long side. I like to cut my wick about 1 mm off of the bottom of the deck. In fact, when you put the tank back together, if you can see your cotton thru the wicking ports, your wicks are too long.

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

This is one of my favorite single coil atomizers of the year so far. In fact, I like to think of this tank as a single coil Kensei. That is exactly what it reminds me of with the deck and the vape quality that I get off of it. It has that same honeycomb style deck that the Kensei has and it gives me that same type of flavor only on a single coil instead of a dual coil setup. The flavor on this atomizer is absolutely banging. You are going to get one of the best single coil vapes that you have ever gotten off of this tank. It is extremely flavorful. The clouds on it are plentiful as well. Most people are not going to believe you when you tell them you are chucking those clouds from a single coil atomizer.

Right now, I have a SS Framed Alien in the Kylin Mini ohming out at .28 ohms. I have it set at 60 watts and the vape I get off of it is just beautiful. The clouds are definitely there and so is the flavor. This is a flavorful tank and a surprisingly cloudy tank especially when you consider I’m only running one coil.

WHAT WOULD HAVE MADE IT BETTER:

  • Airflow Is A Little Loud

The airflow on the Kylin Mini is very smooth and I have to say that I do like the range of airflow that it provides. It’s definitely a DL tank and you will get a nice range of a restricted DL hit. There really is no way to MTL vape on this tank. While the air flow is very smooth, it can get just a little noisy. I would have liked to have seen Vandy Vape smooth the airflow out a little bit, as far as the noise goes. It’s not noisy to the point where it’s a deal breaker but it definitely does get a little loud and it has to be mentioned.

CONCLUSION:

Most of you that read my reviews know that I tend to really like single coil atomizers. I just find that most of the time, I get very good flavor while using a little more than half the wattage I normally would on a dual coil build. Single coil tanks also tend to be much more efficient because you use a lot less juice running only one coil and you get better battery life because you are using less wattage. The Kylin Mini by Vandy Vape is definitely one of the better single coil tanks I have vaped in quite some time. In fact, this one is probably going to be in my rotation for quite some time now, because I really can’t see anything coming along and knocking it out. It’s a great single coil RTA and it has my highest DeucesJack approval. If you’re into single coil tanks, you’re definitely going to want to pick yourself up a Kylin Mini by Vandy Vape.

Oh, I love bricks. Apparently, Hotcig chose a comrade on this principle – RigMod WW also has a similar form factor. Design, I will say right away, to my taste. Strictly rectangular box with rounded corners, side removable panels – one with a “zakos” under carbon, the other with a relief name of the model.

“Advertising space” companies are divided among themselves as follows. On the side panel near the window fit the logo Hotcig, and RigMod WW got the back side of the box.

The window for clicking on the bottle repeats the shape of the box mod and is quite stylishly inscribed in the overall ensemble of the device. Its edges have a pleasant bevel angle. Nevertheless, problems with the “light” of the battery could not be avoided. Here I am amazed, is it difficult to add a thin plastic partition in the color of the case between the bottle and the battery? It’s just elementary.

Inside, the manufacturer decided to hide almost all contact elements from the owner’s eyes.

Not without a surprise. In the internal panel, located in the vicinity of the bottle, built-in RGB lights. Good or not, judge you. But I note that it does not look miserable, as we used to see. The backlight is soft, “warm”, and not intrusive – it turns out that the bottle glows from the inside. Most likely, there is a function to disable it.

I hope that both side panels are removable, otherwise troubles with picking up the battery can not be avoided, since the ribbon is not provided.

VAPORESSO REVENGER X KIT REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

When I first received this box, the first thing I thought was, ‘okay, I reviewed this thing already’. Turns out, Vaporesso has come out with a new and improved version of the Revenger kit. While the Revenger was a really good mod, it did have its issues. Hopefully, Vaporesso has addressed most of those issues on this rendition.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

It looks almost the same as the original Revenger but the only thing that’s different is there are no buttons on the face of the mod. Everything else is pretty much the same except the missing plus/minus buttons and the menu button. They are in fact there but not in traditional button form. Let’s load some batteries into this kit and figure it out together.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • 1x Revenger X MOD
  • 1x NRG Tank/ NRG Mini Tank (TPD Edition)
  • 1x GT4 Core (Pre-installed)
  • 1x GT8 0.15ohm Core
  • 1x Vaporesso USB Cable
  • 1x Replacement Glass Tube
  • 1x User Manual

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

THE MOD:

Starting off at the top, we have a center mounted, gold plated, 510 pin. Vaporesso always uses high quality 510’s and this mod is no different. The threading around the 510 pin is stainless steel and smooth. There is a little metallic ring around the 510, but I really wouldn’t call it a platform. Love the fact that Vaporesso is one of the few companies that listens to its customers and provides mods with center mounted 510’s. It has a short throw to it and it is very stiff. So far though, all of my atomizers have sat flush on this mod. The Revenger X will hold a 25mm tank with no overhang. You actually may be able to fit a 26 mm tank with no overhang.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

The mod itself has a gunmetal finish around the edges and a glass-like look to it. Mine is gunmetal and black. There is a black plastic piece that goes around the whole center of the mod. If the screen is facing you, on the right side of the mod, we do have the fire button. The fire button is rectangular in shape with curved edges to it. It is raised quite a bit from the body of the mod. It is clicky and big with an almost lever-like look to it. When you do use it, you do have to push it towards the top of the button. If you push it on the lower part of the button, it is difficult to fire. The fire button is very comfortable to use and I am enjoying the overall form factor of the Revenger X.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

With the screen of the mod facing you, the left side of the mod is pretty much blank. On the bottom of the mod, there is some battery venting. There are four holes on each side for a total of 8. On the backside of the mod is where the battery door is located. If the battery door is facing you, on the left side of the mod, there is a little cut out for you to be able to get a fingernail in there to lift the battery door off the mod. This battery door is extremely solid and it is held in place with 3 strong magnets. The battery door does not wiggle or move in any way, shape, or form. The batteries in the battery tray are in there pretty good as well. I have experienced no battery or battery door rattle on the Revenger X Kit.

On the exterior of the battery door, there is some Revenger branding on the top of the door. On the bottom of the exterior door, there is some Vaporesso branding. Just like the front of the mod, the battery door has a very sleek look to it. It’s a glassy, glossy look that is a true fingerprint magnet. Even though it is a fingerprint magnet, this is one futuristic, sleek-looking mod. It is basically the shape of a rectangle but the edges are all curved and contoured to make sure it fits in your hand beautifully.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

The interior of the battery door has three strong magnets that coincide with 3 magnets on the battery tray. The one thing I wish Vaporesso did on the battery door was provide some sort of strip of insulation. As the battery door is now, it is all metal and that’s really not a good thing if you have some sort of tear in one of your wraps. For the sake of safety, it would have been nice if they put some type of insulator piece on the interior of the battery door.

The battery tray is extremely clean. It is held in place by 4 Phillips head screws. There are ten board venting holes near the top of the battery tray. This battery tray does not have a battery strap to it but to be honest, there really is no need for it. The batteries are exposed about a quarter of the way out, once the battery door is off. It is very easy to grip your battery from the bottom contacts, push up and slide your battery out. The battery tray has clear battery orientation markings inside of it.

On the bottom of the battery tray, the contacts are gold plated and button style. On the top of the battery tray, the contacts are spring loaded and gold plated. If the battery tray is facing you, the left battery goes in positive side down and the right battery goes in negative side down. The best way to install the batteries is to put the tops of them in first and push up against the spring loaded battery contact. This gives you enough space for the bottom of your battery to slide in rather easily. Once the batteries are installed, the mod will give you some haptic feedback to let you know that they are in there correctly.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

On the front side of the mod is where we have the .96 inch Revenger X screen. The funny thing is with the mod turned off, sometimes it can actually be hard to tell which side is the battery door and which side is the screen. Of course, the side with the screen is the one with the USB port towards the bottom of the mod. The USB port will charge your dual 18650s at 2 amps. It is also used for firmware upgrades.

On the top side of the screen, there is also some Revenger branding. Right below the Revenger branding is the OLED screen. On the screen, you will be able to see your battery life with two separate battery meters, mode, preheat, screen locked or unlocked, resistance, voltage, wattage, and a puff counter with the total amount of puffs and seconds of the last pull. The screen is bright and vivid. You can control the brightness of the screen in the menu system. Outdoors in daylight conditions, the mod does rather well. Unfortunately, it is in dark indoor conditions where this screen suffers. I will cover that when we go over the buttons.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

Right below the screen on the Revenger X, we have the plus and minus button as well as the menu button. The plus and minus buttons on this mod are a little different than most. For all intents and purposes, the buttons are touch screen buttons. They have a haptic feedback to them and in dark conditions, it can be extremely difficult to see them. Most of you know that I am a bartender by trade. I’ve been using this mod a lot but because of the limitations when it comes to being able to see the buttons in low light conditions, I have not been able to use this mod at work. Most bars have a low lighting to begin with and this mod is almost impossible to see in those types of conditions. Not the screen itself but the actual buttons. Vaporesso made the buttons the same color as the screen with no back lighting to them.

On the right of the screen, you will see an arrow pointing towards the right, that is your plus button. On the left of the screen, you will see an arrow pointing towards the left, that is your minus button. In between the two buttons, slightly above the USB port, you will see a gear symbol. That is your menu button. All three of the buttons are basically the same color as the glass. If you are not in lighted room, they are extremely difficult to see. They do work rather well but you have to be able to see them first.

The screen on the Revenger X does have an automatic locking feature to it. Since this is a touchscreen, as soon as you hit the fire button, it locks up all of the other buttons. This way, you are not adjusting the mod inadvertently while you’re vaping. It’s absolutely pure genius and it works really well on this mod. In order to get to your adjustments, you have to click the fire button 3 times to unlock the screen. Simple, and extremely effective. When the screen goes into sleep mode, the Revenger X will display a beautiful clock. I love this feature and I love mods that have clock faces in sleep mode. I think it’s just an awesome addition to an already beautiful mod and I wish more mod manufacturers would do it.

THE TANK:

The tank included in the kit is the Vaporesso NRG tank. It is the same exact tank that comes in the original Revenger kit with one difference. This tank does not have the spit back guard on the stock drip tip. The tank is very reminiscent of the Smok Big Baby Beast. That is what it reminds me of when I look at it.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

The drip tip is made of delrin. There is only one drip tip in the kit but there is also a 510 drip tip adapter. So you can run all of your traditional 510 drip tips. The stock drip tip is a wide chuff cap style drip tip. It also has o’rings around it even though it is an 810 style drip tip. The drip tip is nice and comfortable. All my Smok Beast line drip tips do fit on my NRG tank.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

The top cap is a slider-style top cap. There is an arrow indicator on one side of the top cap. Simply push the top cap towards the arrow and the top cap slides up and slightly to the left. This will reveal one kidney bean-shaped fill port with a gasket around it. The fill port is a decent size but it could get a little messy with a bullnose type of juice bottle. Droppers and needle nose bottles will have no problem at all. The tank will hold 5 mls of juice.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

The chimney on the NRG tank is a wide bore chimney and it is very short. It screws directly into the top of the coil head. So, the vapor does not have a long way to travel before it hits the vapers mouth. I’m sure this contributes to the excellent flavor the NRG tank is capable of.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

The base of the NRG tank is a screw-in style base. In other words, you screw your coil heads directly into the base of the NRG tank. The threading on the inside of the base is very smooth and all of the coils have fit into the base securely with no leaking. Around the exterior of the base, there are two air slots.

This is a pretty airy tank and again I would compare the airflow to the Smok Big Baby Beast tank. The AFC has a smooth action to it and stoppers on both ends. One of the innovative things Vaporesso did with the base of the NRG tank was that they made it out of Delrin. I like that Vaporesso tried something different with the base and to be honest, it actually works very well. The Delrin base of the NRG tank definitely helps lessen the effect of heat transferring between the mod and tank. On the bottom of the base, there is some NRG branding. There is also a non-adjustable 510 pin with some smooth threading done in stainless steel.

THE COILS:

Because I received a very early pre-release version of this kit, I only received one coil in my kit. I have spoken to Vaporesso about this and they ensured me that the two coils that I listed in this review will indeed be included in your kit.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

The coil I was sent is the Vaporesso GT8 coil. This is a .15 ohm coil with a rating of 50 to 110 Watts. Vaporesso says that this coil is best between 60 and 80 Watts. I tend to run this coil right around 85 Watts. I have vaped it at 110 watts and it does do a fine job of keeping up especially while chain vaping. I just find that at 110 watts, it’s a little too warm for my liking. The overall quality of the coil is just fantastic. I get a really great, flavorful, saturated, cloudy vape from this coil at 85 Watts. That is exactly where I like to be with this coil and how I like to vape.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

While Vaporesso has developed a nice family coils for this tank, this tank is also compatible with Smok Baby Beast coils. In my book, that’s a definite plus. I really do like when manufacturers come out with tanks that are capable of using other coil systems. I think the more varieties that we are offered, the better off we are as a community. I take my hat off to Vaporesso with doing that. They do have five coils available for this tank in their own family of coils. Combine that with all of the Smok Baby Beast compatible coils on the market and you have yourself quite a few choices as far as coils go for the NRG tank.

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

As most of you know, from reading my original Revenger kit review, I love the look of this kit. I just think it has a unique look in a very competitive subcategory. I like the glossy look of it and the smooth texture of the mod. It looks like it’s made out of glass. I also like the form factor on it. It’s not just your run of the mill box. It has curves and contours around the edges and corners that give it a very comfortable feel when it is in your hands. Just a fantastic job by Vaporesso. While I do like the overall look of the mod, I really wish they would have done something different with the buttons. It is an improvement over the original Revenger kit, because of the increased functionality, but not being able to see the plus/minus buttons as well as the menu button in dark conditions is a definite con.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

The good news is, Vaporesso seems to be listening to their customer base because they corrected a lot of things on this mod that were wrong with the original Revenger kit. Hopefully, they’ll listen when it comes to the buttons and either use a different color on the touch screen buttons or some sort of background lighting on them. I think that would easily solve that problem. Big props to Vaporesso for taking the constructive criticism on the original Revenger kit and more importantly, actually acting on it. Nice job, Vaporesso. The Revenger X kit comes in blue, red, green, black, and rainbow.

THE BOARD:

The chipset inside the Revenger X kit is a proprietary Vaporesso chipset. It is the new Omni board version 2.2. This is a really good board as far as accuracy and TC go. It does have a full temperature control suite. It will TC Ni, Ti, SS. There is a TCR function for all of your custom wires with 2 presets. It even has a variable wattage curve feature.

This board also has a feature that I really like. It has its own Smart Mode. What that means is, if you turn the smart mode on, every time you attach a new atomizer, it will read the resistance automatically and give you a suggested wattage to run that atomizer at. I think that is a fantastic feature for new vapers. Most of these new vapers that are starting off have no idea where to start when it comes to resistance and the wattage that they should run. This feature on this board, gives those new vapers a great starting point. It does err a little on the conservative side but that’s okay. You have the ability to turn it up or down from that point. I also like the fact that you can turn this feature off on the mod. I know a lot of experienced vapers may find it annoying, so to be able to turn it off is a definite plus.

Vaporesso Revenger X Kit Review

For the real experienced users, it even has a bypass mode so you can run the mod like a Mech mod. There is also a wattage curve feature. Personally, I haven’t really gotten into the whole wattage curve thing. For the purposes of this review, I did test it out and it does work beautifully. I know that a lot of vapers are really getting into the wattage curve features on a lot of the new mods that are coming out. For me, it’s just not my thing. I would just rather run the board in TC mode. Basically, this board has something for everyone from the TC vaper, to the newbie, to the diehard power mode users, to the wattage curve vapers and the experienced Mech mod users. Plenty of options for everyone.

Vaporesso claims that the mod is capable of firing as low as 5 watts and as high as 220 Watts. We will test that out a little later. The Revenger X kit has a temperature control range of 200 degrees to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The screen has a 16-tier brightness adjustment to it and the mod includes a haptic feedback motor.

THE MENU SYSTEM:

The menu system on this mod is just beautiful. Vaporesso really did an awesome job of taking the feedback that they received on the original Revenger kit and basically going back to the drawing board. They have fixed everything that was wrong with the original kit. The original Revenger had an archaic menu system. Especially, if you factor in the fact that it has its own separate menu button. When you include a button like that, it should make the clicks much easier and the menu system should be much more intuitive. That was nowhere near the case with the original Revenger kit. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good mod but the menu system absolutely ruined it. Vaporesso listened to all of their customers and they came up with a winner here as far as the menu system goes.

The menu system on their Revenger X is basically as simple as it gets. First of all, the screen automatically locks when you hit the fire button. On a touchscreen, that is an awesome feature to have so you do not inadvertently make adjustments while you are vaping. In order to unlock the screen, you simply click the fire button 3 times. Once you do that, you are free to make any adjustments you would like.

With the screen unlocked, if you want to adjust your wattage or temperature, all you have to do is hit the menu button and the main menu comes up on the screen. Once the main menu is on the screen, you use your plus and minus buttons to scroll through your choices. When your choice is highlighted, you simply hit the menu button and make whatever adjustments you feel you need to make. That’s the whole menu system in a nutshell. It’s very easy and it is extremely intuitive.

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

The Vaporesso Omni board has received a lot of praise and rightfully so. It’s a very good board. It is very accurate in TC and in power mode, it is accurate up to a certain point. As you all know, one of my pet peeves is I hate when companies over rate their mods. Most of us know that a dual 18650 mod is just not capable of doing 220 watts. If it is, it can only do it for a few pulls. I did test the Revenger X kit against my triple battery DNA mod. As with most dual 18650 mods, it did not feel anywhere close to how the DNA felt at 220 watts. I would say, this mod maxes out at around 175 watts, at best. Again, I just wish companies would put honest wattages on their packaging. It’s not like I’m going to choose one mod over the other because it does 20 or 30 more watts than another mod. That’s not the way I make my decision when I buy a mod and I’m sure that’s not the way most vapers make their buying decisions.

All that being said, power mode up to 170 watts is accurate as far as I’m concerned. The Revenger X is very accurate in TC mode and I love the different preheats that they give you in both power and TC mode. I find myself using those preheats a lot in order to push some of my bigger coils. The Revenger X has 3 preheat settings. The choice is soft, normal, and hard. Most of the times, I am running in normal mode but I do find the hard preheat useful when I am pushing some big, fat coils.

Overall, the vape quality on this kit is just fantastic. I love the board and I think, the tank is really good as well. Even though I only received one coil in my kit, I’m glad that they sent me the GT8 coil because out of all the coils that I have tried from Vaporesso, that one is by far my favorite. It’s a really solid performing mod with a very solid tank. Combine the two and that makes this a really sweet kit.

WHAT WOULD MAKE IT BETTER:

  • Backlit Or Colored Buttons

There is really not a lot wrong with this kit. I think Vaporesso did a bang up job on it. Especially when you compare it to the original Revenger Kit. They took everything that was wrong with that kit and basically fixed it. Good for you, Vaporesso. The one place where I think that they dropped the ball just a little bit is with the touch screen buttons. If you are in a dark room, they are impossible to see. Vaporesso, if you are reading this, do something with these buttons. Either put a light behind them or put some type of different color on them, something to make them more visible. Anything other than a lit room and you are going to have a hard time seeing those buttons. They do work well. I have had no issues with the buttons except for the fact that I can’t see them in low light conditions. Fix that Vaporesso, and you are going to have one very hard to beat mod in an extremely competitive subcategory.

CONCLUSION:

If you’re a fan of the original Revenger kit but that archaic menu system turned you off, then you are just going to absolutely love what they did with the Revenger X kit. This thing is absolutely everything the original Revenger kit should have been. It is extremely easy to use, it looks fantastic, you have a centered 510, and the menu system is easy and intuitive. What more does somebody want from a kit? This is it, this is just an all-around great kit. It’s great for the newbies out there that may not know where to start off. If you are a new vaper, then buy yourself this kit and turn on Smart Mode. It’s great for the experienced users because it has enough bells and whistles to keep them happy. It’s just an overall solid performer. DeucesJack approved for sure, especially if you’re a fan of the original Revenger kit. This one blows the original out of the water.

SMOK OSUB Plus Kit Review

smok-osub

The SMOK OSUB Plus Kit comes with a top quality sub-ohm tank paired with an internal battery-powered mod device. SMOK has named the top piece the “Brit Beast Tank” and the internal battery device as The OSUB Plus TC Mod.

As most Vaping Mods typically have removable 18650 lithium-ion batteries, in some cases the batteries are 26550. Most take a single 18650 battery, but through much innovation, there are many more being designed as double battery devices with the ability to hold two 18650 batteries. Not to mention, with the release of the Reuleaux, we began to see a rise in popularity for triple battery devices, housing up to three 18650 batteries. This is why the OSUB Plus TC Mod manufactured by SMOK is so unique, it requires no inserting and removing of lithium-ion batteries, the mod itself is the battery and a quite powerful one in fact.

Each SMOK OSUB Plus kit comes with:

  • 1x OSUB Plus 80 W TC Mod
  • 1x Brit Beast Tank
  • 1x V8 Baby Q2 Core (0.4Ω no dual coils) (Pre-Installed)
  • 1x V8 Baby Q2 Core (0.4Ω no dual coils)
  • 1x Micro-USB Charging/Upgrading Cable
  • 1x Replacement Glass Tube
  • Spare Parts Mini Bag

OSUB Plus TC Mod

smok-osub-2

The OSUB Plus TC Mod has a 3300mAh internal battery which powers up this particular device, reaching up to 80 Watts and 0.8V-9.0Volts, a vast improvement from the original OSUB Kit, literally doubling the power, which was previously only 40 Watts. The Plus Kit version is equipped with temperature control mode ranging from 200 degrees F – 600 degrees F or 100 degrees C – 315 degrees C. The resistance ranges from 0.1 ohms-3 ohms (VW) and 0.06 ohms-2 ohms (TC).

Altogether, it was crucial to highlight the popular double-to-triple battery Mods since, at first glance, vapers might think the OSUB Plus TC Mod is a double-battery device – I certainly held that predisposition when first laying my eyes on this sleek, innovative new SMOK product.

3300 mAh battery capacity

An INPUT 5V:1A port is located directly below the “+” and “-” buttons beneath the OLED screen. This allows for the OSUB TC Mod to be rechargeable while also possessing the ability for upgradeable firmware all simply from utilizing a Micro-USB Cable – a cable is provided for the consumer as part of the box contents.

The most distinct portion of this specific Mod that seems to make it stand-out as one-of-a-kind is that it features an integrated streamline, big lateral firing key located on the opposite side of the 510 thread where the Brit Beast screws in. The OSUB Plus TC Mod measures at 75 x 25 x 54.5mm.

The best part about the fire key is that it takes up only half of one side. So if you press towards the bottom it won’t fire, you’ll just be pressing against a solid surface, but when you press the top portion, it will make a smooth click sound, powerup the coil and you can then begin or continue to Vape. Therefore, this particular feature is somewhat similar to the X-Cube Mod except the fire button does not take up the whole side portion of the Mod, only the top half of it.

The colors available for the internal battery mod device that is the OSUB Plus TC Mod comes in Black, Stainless, White, Blue, or Red. Not to mention, at the very bottom of the OSUB Plus Mod, there is a tiny hole used as a “reset” button, accompanied of course by a set of five mini ventilation holes on each bottom side.

Taking all that has been revealed about the OSUB Plus TC Mod, the most fascinating, convenient and innovative features are present in the settings, visible on the OLED screen. After turning on the device with 5 rapid clicks of the fire key, you will be greeted by the SMOK logo, then “OSUB TC” appears on the screen, followed by a big and bright “Welcome.” To get to the settings, all that is required is to click the fire key 3 times, rapidly and there will be a series of icons.

menu2

From left to right, the fist icon is for changing it to Temp. Control Mode or Wattage Mode, then under the same icon you are given the ability to change the “Drawing Effect” strength from MIN, SOFT, NORM, HARD, or MAX. Vaping this device at 45-50w on NORM is fairly powerful, so it’s difficult to imagine that any vaper would need the MAX drawing effect while on 80w.

Regardless the very next icon is the “Vape Data” which is basically a puff counter that reveals the puffs already taken, while allowing you to also set a limited number of puffs as well as a rest of the puff counter. Following this, the very next icon is for adjusting initial ohm.

The Fourth icon over will be for the Temperature Coefficient of Resistance (TCR), offering the ability to adjust the resistivity of your coil, whether Ni200/Titanium/Steel. After this, the 5th icon is of a settings wheel we’ve all seen before (often seen in modern technology applications). This specific icon can take you to another sub-menu which includes the option to choose “Stealth Mode” as ON/OFF as well as screen-saver-time, allowing up to 240 seconds of time on the OLED screen remaining lit-up.

You also have the option of adjusting “Contrast Range” from 5-100. Additionally, there is an extra decision for you to make and that deals with if you want to rotate the screen in 180 degrees. After the “sub menu” you can then choose the power ON/OFF icon followed by the next icon, representing “Exit Menu.”

OLED screen options & commands

menu

After reading about all the special Setting Menu features, it might seem like a lot of information to take-in all at once. Absorbing all that information about the features, certainly seems like overkill, so it is indeed overwhelming initially. However, in the near future of becoming more familiar with the device, it is so much more convenient than some may think.

The Settings features are by far what sets this Mod apart from the rest. It is largely significant to mention that it is very easy to quickly lock and unlock the device. This is very beneficial since the fire key can easily be pressed on accident while in your pocket or purse or wherever you store your Mod(s) on your person. To Lock/Unlock, simply press the “+” and “-” buttons together simultaneously or click the fire key 5 times rapidly.

Brit beast tank

img_1141

With compliments to The OSUB Plus TC Mod, The Brit Beast Tank is equally impressive. The Brit Beast is comparable to a TFV8 Baby tank, barely a mere mini version of the Baby TFV8 tank made by SMOK. The Big Brother to each of these tanks is that of the TFV8 Cloud Beast tank, which holds 1/6th of a 30ml bottle of eLiquid with a 5ml capacity. The TFV8 Cloud Beast tank is probably one of the most popular tanks on the market as coils are scarce at vape shops around the Denver area.

Regardless, the Brit Beast has bottom airflow with a removable airflow ring for cleaning purposes. It is of course a top-fill tank with wide juice filling slots that has a capacity of 3.5ml, which is still going to provide you with a nice full tank. Filling it up all the way directly after priming your coil may produce some spitback. So, perhaps wait until your cil is nice and saturated before you fill it to the tippy-top.

To refill, simply unscrew the chuff cap drip tip (the only compatible drip tip for the Brit Beast). The Brit Beast Tank is made from Stainless Steel and is compatible with all cores of the TFV8 Baby tank – it’s an advantageous discovery to learn what is possible when the Brit Beast tank meets with the 0.4Ω V8 Baby-Q2 Core.

The possibilities are quite helpful since the Brit Beast core is compatible with all cores of the TFV8 Baby Beast. Very convenient. The Brit Beast measures in size at 24.5mm x 43mm and weighs 39 grams.

In Summary

Advantages (pros)

  • The Plus Kit comes with a very lightweight & compact TC Mod with a comfy grip
  • Tank Produces Smooth Flavor & Strong Cloud Production
  • Special Personalized Preference Features
  • Adjustable Drawing Effect from MIN-to-MAX
  • Removable airflow ring for easy cleaning
  • The location and feel of the fire key
  • Chuff cap drip tip for wide-bore experience during the fire and draw
  • 3300mAh Internal Battery for a long power-life
  • Various Settings Menu Options

Disadvantages (cons)

  • The removable airflow ring could also be seen as a possible disadvantage as there are instances where it has had issues with leaking.
  • It is reasonable to suggest some vapers may not appreciate the chuff cap since there is no other compatible drip tip – while many prefer the wide-bore mouthpiece, others may want the versatility of switching out the chuff for a 510 drip tip.
  • Some believe the airflow creates an undesirable noisy sound, but that is only if you’re sucking on it so hard as if the antidote was in it. The “Drawing Effect” adjustment will do the work for you.
  • One of the features of this kit that could be categorized as being an advantage to some vapers as well as a negative aspect to other vapers is the 3300mAh internal battery. The internal battery may be considered a “con” due to the fact that many vapers tend to prefer devices that take 18650 batteries. This is due to reasons related to traveling through airport security as well as the overall functionality, longevity and stability of power retained by the device.

Reflection

Many may ask, why would this be an issue when traveling through airport security? Stories have been told by some Vapers that when 18650 batteries are taken out of a device and stored properly, then this is far more beneficial for a vaper when having your belongings scanned and analyzed by airport security. Some vapers have said they were forced by TSA to throw-away their internal battery Mods while passing through the security line. Therefore, it is recommended by many vapers, that if you’re traveling and passing through TSA, take devices with batteries you can remove.

For instance, most advanced vaping devices or Vape Mods take either 1 to 3 18650 lithium-ion batteries. If you take them out, secure them in a protectable case, then your mod won’t accidentally turn on without your knowledge persay. To most vapers, there is truly not much of a difference when it comes to traveling from airport to airport with vape devices, yet many have retold stories of their beloved internal battery Mod being confiscated or transformed into instant-garbage as it’s tossed in the trash can. Not cool. So, be careful.

The scariest thing is not the batteries, it’s the lack of knowledge that non-vapers have regarding such technology. Regardless, better safe than sorry. Take out your 18650 lithium-ion batteries or if they’re 26650 batteries, doesn’t matter, just take them out and leave the internal battery mod at home – this would be typically recommended. Then again, we all talk to different vapers, perhaps in your own experience, this seems unlikely or unheard of. Rest assured, it is more than likely and has been heard loud and clear, so don’t take any risks.

Final thoughts

The advantages certainly outweigh the disadvantages when it comes to to this particular vaping device kit. This OSUB Plus Kit would not be recommended for beginners, perhaps the first initial OSUB 40w device with a Helmet Tank would be more suitable for beginners. Yet, if you’ve been Vaping on the pens for quite some time and you’re ready to transition to a Mod device, this is a perfect kit for your transition.

So, whether you are somewhat new to vaping, for instance, you are long past the cig-a-like stage or whether you consider yourself more of a veteran vaper. Millions would classify themselves as veterans if they are actual vaping hobbyists, vapor enthusiasts or vape advocates. Hence, when it comes to describing the veteran vaper – your lifestyle would most likely consist of one of these combinations: nothing but Sub-Ohm tanks or RDAs, filling either one with Premium eLiquids ranging from 2 to 4mg nicotine levels, typically 3mg nic for as long as one or two years. Regardless The SMOK OSUB Plus Kit, whether post cig-a-like vaper or veteran vapor, this one is a MUST-Get. I repeat, The SMOK OSUB Plus Kit is a device you MUST-get!

SMOK ROLO BADGE REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX

DeuceJack: What’s up everybody? DeucesJack and I’m back with another review. Look at this thing. Iy’s the Smok Rolo Badge. It looks like a badge. It looks like something like Doctor Spock or Captain Kirk would wear on their uniform. Kind of wacky looking, huh? Almost reminds me of the Suorin. What was that? The drop that they did but instead of having the drip tip, they put the drip tip almost on the bottom of the shape where the Suorin’s drip tip was over here. I don’t know, man. But it’s nice. It’s nice and slim. Really easy to hold.

Check out the vape. It’s got a really nice draw on it. I’ve been running some Nic Salts in it. I’ve been running this Black Unicorn Nic Salts, the grape. It kind of taste like a grape candy, like the Grape Now & Later. Really nice in here. I’ve been enjoying it.

Let’s cut down low. Let’s look at it up close and personal then we’ll come back on top. We’ll talk about it a little bit, vape it, pros, cons. We’re out of here. See you down low.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX

  • 1 x SMOK ROLO Badge AIO Vape Pod Kit
  • 2 x SMOK ROLO Badge Cartridges
  • 1 x MicroUSB Cable
  • 1 x E-liquid Injection Bottle
  • 1 x User Instruction Manual

Smok Rolo Badge Review

All right everyone, welcome down low to the Smok Rolo Badge Pod System. This is the packaging that it comes in. You can see all the stuff over there. Scratch and sniff, sample, not for sale. There you go. And there is the back right there. What’s included with this device is one Rolo Badge, 2 pods, a USB cable, a user manual and an E-Liquid injection bottle.

Let’s open it up. See what we have here. Put that cardboard to the side there. Let’s get this box open. There we go. Good looking mod. This is the battery part. This, of course, is the pod part. Let’s put it together like that for now. Let’s put it to the side.

See what we have underneath. Take the foam insert out, cardboard out. We have a spare pod. Let’s put that to the side. We have a USB charge cable. We all got a million of those. Let’s put that to the side. We have a needle nose fill bottle with a silicon cap on it. I think that’s a really nice touch. I like that. I’m digging that, I’ll tell you that. That’s a nice touch to be able to carry this around and fill up your pod. I like that. Silica, and here we have the owner’s manual. There you go. Let’s file all that to the side.

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM

Let’s take a look at this pod right here. I’m going to use a clean one for demonstration purposes. As you can see, we have two rubber grommets here. If you’re using a regular bottle tip, you might want to open another side up in order to let the air escape but if you’re using one of those needle nose injection that’s included, you only need to open up one side, stick the needle nose in there and fill it up.

Smok Rolo Badge Review

This thing holds 2 mls of liquid but I have to say, when I filled it up, it felt like it held a little more. More like 2.5. There’s your drip tip right there. That’s it for the pod system.

Now, here’s the battery part of it. This thing’s a fingerprint magnet. It really is. But it’s a nice looking- it does look like a badge. Kind of looks like a Star Trek badge. Don’t get any ideas right there. I’m no Trekky. But really nice looking pod system. It really is. I think they did a good job with it. I’ve been rocking this for quite some time. It’s slim, it ’s compact, easy to put in a jacket pocket or jeans front pocket. I like it a lot.

Smok Rolo Badge Review

When you take the pod out, you’ll notice that we have a negative and positive gold plated contacts here and magnets that coincide with magnets on the actual pod. It clicks in rather nicely.

One thing I wanted to go over about this Rolo Badge is, the slim form factor is one thing but one thing I really like there is the USB port right there. It’s a regular micro USB port, no fancy docking station or anything like that. I really like that. I think that’s always going to be a pro on pod systems. I hate these proprietary charging systems. Good job on that Smok or Smoke, whatever you want to call them.

Smok Rolo Badge Review

The other thing I wanted to show you is, the shape is very similar to the Suorin Drop. The only difference being, instead of having the mouthpiece on the pointy part like it is on the Suorin Drop, it;s on the more flatter side on the Rolo Badge. I’m not too sure how I feel about that. I think I might have liked the drip tip to be on this side. I think that might have been better but then it would have been almost the total copy of the drop. Either way, they’re both really good form factors. This thing does vape really nice and it gives you a satisfying vape.

Let’s cut back on top. Let’s go over cons, pros and then we’re out of here as usual. See you back on top.

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

GENERAL THOUGHTS

All right, we’re back with the Smok Badge. Look at that thing. Kind of nice looking, man. I got to say, I really dig the capacity on this thing. It says that it takes 2 mls of liquid but it feels like a lot more when you’re filling it up. I think it’s a little more than that. I think they were real conservative. It has an output of around 7 to 12 watts, gold plated contacts like the Infinix and the Fit Kit. it has magnets on the bottom of the pod system, draw activated, made out of zinc alloy. It has a nice solid feel to it. I gotta say I’ve been enjoying this. Easy to slip into a back pocket, front pocket, shirt pocket. It’s pocketable, slim, I like it. I really do. I’ve been enjoying this one.

CONS

As far as the official cons and pros go, I wish they would have told me what type of resistance range the coil is. I can’t seem to find that anywhere.

And the shape. The shape of this thing may not be for everyone. Yes, it’s the same shape as the very popular Suorin Drop except with the Suorin drop, the mouthpiece was on this side but it’s definitely the same type of shape. It’s not going to be for everyone. Some people who like those slim long ones, they’re not going to like this chubby slim one. They may not like the shape.

That’s it as far as the cons go. It doesn’t affect the vape ability of it.

PROS

Pros are going to be, love that needle nose bottle that they put in their kit. Smok has been doing it with all their pod system.

I think that’s great. I think it runs Nic Slats really well. It’s great for Nic Salt juices. We’ll give them a pro for that.

We’ll give them a pro for the pocketability. I like that.

I’m also going to give them a pro on the vape quality. I got a really nice satisfying vape on this pod system. It’s really good. I’ve been enjoying it.

The other pro I’m going to give them is, I love the tolerance on the pod system here. The way the pod actually clicks in to the battery pod of the mod, they did a great job with that. The fit of it is perfect.

I also want to give them a pro on the finish. As you know, if you’ve seen my Infinix and my Fit Kit review, those finishes, they didn’t hold up that well in my pocket. I jostle this one around and treated it the same way and put it in the same types of pockets and bags. This finish has help up really well. I’m very very impressed by that Smok or Smok, whatever you gus want to call yourself, you did a great job with it. You really did.

OUTRO

We’re going to have links down below where you can purchase the Smok Rolo Badge. Make sure you check it out. We’ll also have links down below for the Black Unicorn, the Grape and check out their whole line of Nic Salts. They do a great job. Grape and strawberry are fantastic. The mango was really good too.

VooPoo Panda Review: The #1 Pod Mod For Battery Life

The VooPoo Panda is a teeny, tiny pod mod device. It’s cute-looking, around the size of a Zippo lighter, and it runs two styles of coil heads.

And it is these coil heads that make the VooPoo Panda a little bit different to many of the pod mod vapes on the market right now.

Why? Because you can sub-ohm vape with the Panda’s 0.8ohm coil head, which means high VG E Juice will run inside it just fine.

Want a more traditional pod mod-style vape? Stick the 1.2ohm head in and you’re good to go for MTL-style vaping with Nic Salts E Juice.

The versatility of the coil heads, combined with its tiny stature, is what makes this device something of a head turner.

But is it any good in practice? Let’s find out…

VooPoo Panda Review

Design

VooPoo Panda

The Zippo-Sized VooPoo Panda

As I said, the VooPoo Panda is very small. I’m talking Zippo lighter-small and this is definitely a good thing when you’re talking about pod mods.

You want them small and portable. Ideally, with very few moving parts as well. The VooPoo Panda does both of these things very well.

There is a single fire button on the device and that, save for the MicroUSB charging port, is literally it.

Why is it called the Panda? Simple: it’s a cute and round black and white device, though you can pick it up in a variety of color options.

Overall, I think the design of the VooPoo Panda is very attractive. If you’re into small, portable pod mods, it is definitely one of the more unique looking setups I’ve seen.

How The Pods Work

You get two in the kit (one 1.2ohm, the other 0.8ohms) and they will hold 5ml of E Juice. Obviously, these pods are also refillable too.

The pods are easy to fill up too. Simply unplug the rubber port and fill it up with E Juice. Once you’ve done this, you’ll want to let it stand for about 10 minutes – this way it’ll prime up properly.

VooPoo Panda

The Battery & Pod System

Putting everything together is super simple; you don’t even need to consult the user manual – it’s just obvious what you have to do.

Pod mods by their very nature are designed to be simple. But what VooPoo has come up with here takes this idea to a whole other level.

The VooPoo Panda can be setup in under 3 minutes. Even a vaper with ZERO experience with pod mods could do it.

VooPoo Panda Specs & Features

Here’s a breakdown of the Panda’s key specs and features.

  • Size: 75*47.5*27.4mm
  • Capacity: 5ml
  • Wattage: self-adaptive 8w or 12w
  • Resistance: 1.2Ω(8W) & 0.8 Ω(12w)
  • Battery capacity:1100mah

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

As you can see, the battery it uses is pretty large. Another positive for this device, as the battery life: it lasts for AGES (and it only takes 1.5 hours to recharge from dead).

VooPoo Panda Pod Mod Performance

VooPoo Panda

The 5ml Pod System

How’s it perform? Decent, actually. It’s not mind-blowing in the flavor department but it’s definitely above average.

I generally prefer running it with the 1.2ohms coil heads, as this means I can use Nic Salts E Juice and take proper advantage of its sizeable battery life.

I tend to use RDAs, like, exclusively, so I’m always a little “meh” about pod mods when it comes to flavor.

They never quite deliver what I want when it comes to flavor. But this is to be expected on account of how they’re designed versus RDAs and RTAs.

For a pod mod, the flavor is OK – but I still think the SMOANT S8 Pod is the king of flavor in the pod mod space right now.

Bottomline: if you want to really get the most out of this device, you’ll need to run decent quality Nic Salts E Juice.

The VooPoo Panda works best with its 1.2ml coil head. You’ll get better flavor, bigger hits, and more battery life.

I like that they added a sub-ohm option, but with only 12w of power to play with it doesn’t really work all that well.

VooPoo Panda Battery Life

VooPoo Panda

Battery life on the Panda is exceptional. In this context, I think it is a clear winner in the pod mod space right now.

I’ve used a bunch of pod mods this year, and the VooPoo Panda’s battery life WIPES the floor with every single one of them.

I ran mine for almost three days before it required a recharge. Obviously, this was with low-to-moderate usage, but it is still very impressive for a device of this size.

Tesla Punk 220W Steampunk Box Mod Review

Forgive the speedy turnaround, but I was too excited to wait. Because the Tesla Punk is an absolutely fantastic vape mod, and a new figurehead in my collection. Hyperbole? Not really – once you get a hold of this substantial beauty, you’ll understand why I’m glowing so much to start a review.

There are just a few nitpicky things that keep the Tesla Punk from all-time all-star status, but they’re so minor, you’re probably going to yell at me in the comments section. Until then, read on to see why the Tesla Punk should be on your shopping short list for 2018.

When you pick up the Tesla Punk in its packaging, you’d be forgiven for thinking there’s a wealth of extras in the box. And the offerings are certainly good, to be sure. But that weight you’re feeling? That’s almost entirely the Punk.  No, this is not a “toss it in your pocket and forget it” vape device.

Sure, at 86x56x30mm, you can certainly carry the Tesla Punk in a pocket or purse, but you’ll definitely know it’s there. Tesla lists the Mod at 200 grams in heft, but I think that might be conservative. Of all the Mods in my collection, this is by far the heaviest.

But with the heft comes stunning design, most notably the thick glass that covers both sides of the Punk, allowing both the steampunk accents and the circuitry to be visible to the user. (A subtle, but effective LED light further enhances the effect.) Also gorgeous is the rock-solid beveled edges, which frame the Mod without overshadowing the steampunk-style gears and cogs.

One mild concern I had during our preview was the potential for catastrophic damage if the heavy, glass-covered Punk fell onto a hard surface. I also said I didn’t plan to test that. Well, the universe had other plans. Because my brushed zinc alloy test Model took an inadvertent tumble from a four-foot high table onto a hardwood floor.

Finally, the other nitpicky issue I had with the Punk is the slide off battery door, which detaches completely. While this door is secure once it’s in place, it’s far too easy to remove. And, by detaching entirely, I can see users accidentally misplacing it. I’m not going to lambaste the Tesla Punk because it lacks a battery door hinge, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t have been a welcome decision.Thankfully, this unexpected test turned out fine, with both the glass and the metal surviving without a scratch. Clearly, Tesla designed the Punk for everyday use. That said, I do NOTrecommend trying this at home, because things could have gone a lot worse under different circumstances.

The Tesla Punk Box Mod

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

The Tesla PunkA  is fusion of “steampunk” design elements with a bit of the futuristic RGB LED Light-up functionality (the the Mod doesn’t actually need), the Tesla Punk 220W TC Box Mod does indeed deliver a unique design of a  transparent chassis and intelligent chipset that meets the needs of modern Vapers, but with a cool factor of steampunk influences.

Operating the Tesla Punk Box Mod

Beneath the ornate steampunk exterior comes a surprisingly simple user interface. Though the display itself is fairly rudimentary – with all pertinent information at the ready – Tesla chose to keep the focus on functionality, so the gorgeous design could take center stage. The balance is perfect.

Another welcome item was the 0.5-ohm increment adjustments, which make it easier and faster to scroll to a desired wattage. Like I mentioned in the preview, I appreciate control and customization, but I don’t necessarily see a major difference from tenths of a percentage, and neither will most.Users can easily make adjustments to resistance, wattage, voltage, preheat, coil material and more, via the bright screen and simple button interface. But it never gets in the way of the overall aesthetic.

Thanks to the Punk’s control setup, navigating the menu trees is easy (made easier by well-documented instructions). I still wish the third button was used for something other than activation and adjustment of the LED backlight, but in terms of simplicity, Tesla has done well with this chipset, and I only hope other companies take notice of how streamlined the system is.

The buttons themselves are pristine. Both the control buttons and the fire key are beautifully constructed, with a reassuring throw to each of them. The fire key, in particular, has an outstanding clicky feel.

The up/down controls sit in a slightly recessed cutout so they’re flush with the edge of the Mod. At first, I didn’t think much of this design choice, but when taking the Punk out for the night, I never had any issues with random button presses or inadvertent adjustments.

The USB charge/upgrade port works well, though I wasn’t thrilled with the speed of the charging itself. The documentation doesn’t indicate whether or not it’s 2-amp charging, but topping off my 18650s took longer than expected. Using an external charger is always preferable for safety, but here, it’s probably best to leave the USB for upgrades only.

Vaping the Tesla Punk Box Mod

Now that my little nitpicks are out of the way, let’s get to the good stuff. Vaping the Tesla Punk was an absolute pleasure, from first puff to last. Regardless of what types of coils I threw at the Punk, it adjusted and offered nothing short of stellar vape quality.

At my usual 70-90 watts, the Punk’s battery life was much better. Though not a world-beater in this category, Tesla has created another efficient, reliable device that can get most users through the waking hours before needing to swap cells.Starting with my usual “stress test” I’m thrilled to report that 220 watts is no myth, as the Punk hits these heights with ease – yes, even with 18650 cells. As expected, vaping at these levels dramatically reduces battery life, but the Punk never once stuttered or skipped a beat when trying to push its limits.

Now, I might not be the most intricate TC vaper, nor do I make a ton of adjustments once I get to a desired setting, but I can say the Punk’s simplified operations made me more adventurous. I tinkered with wattage adjustments and preheat settings throughout the experience, and the Punk never threw up an error, or booted me to a menu – things I experience far too often in Modern Mods.

My only minor complaint was that it was far too easy to activate the LED backlighting when vaping the Tesla Punk. Though the button is positioned above the up/down controls, I found myself unexpectedly showered in light more than once. Hardly an actual problem.

The Wrap Up

And My Score for the Tesla Punk Mod

So, for those keeping score at home, my “big” complaints about the Tesla Punk are a detachable battery door and an oddly positioned LED light button. If those are my only gripes, it’s pretty safe to say this is a damn good vape Mod.

But, truth be told, the Tesla Punk is so much more. It is, at once, elegant, powerful, high-performing, classy and high-end. Its striking looks are backed up by some of the smoothest ramping and heating I’ve seen in a while, and flawless functionality with virtually any atomizer.

There’s no doubt it’s large, but the Tesla Punk Box Mod is a tremendous piece of craftsmanship, and an instant showpiece for your collection.

OUMIER WASP NANO REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

Man, is this thing tiny. They should have named it the Gnat instead of the Wasp. This may be one of the smallest atomizers I’ve ever seen. Comes in a two-tiered box. The atomizer is on the top tier and the spares with the rest of the goodies are on the bottom tier. Looks like they only give you two spare o’rings. Have o’rings gotten really expensive lately? Whatever, let’s throw a coil in here, wick this thing up and see how it vapes.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • 1pc Wasp Nano RDA
  • 1pc Spare kit
  • 1pc Organic Cotton
  • Squonking pin

Oumier Wasp Nano Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

The Wasp Nano by Oumier comes with a combination drip tip/barrel/top cap. Normally, I would have preferred separate pieces but because of the diminutive size of this atomizer, I totally understand why they combined all three into one piece. The combination top part of the atomizer is made of all Ultem. I do like the look but I know some people are not crazy about the yellowish tint that Ultem has. I’ve heard it referred to as a derogatory bodily fluid color. It doesn’t bother me and I actually think it looks good on some mods. All that being said, the cap does work fine and it is very serviceable. I do find that my mouth is a little too close to the coils when I vape it this way so I have found a very tiny drip tip that acts like an extender for me when I’m using this atomizer. I have been running it this way for quite some time and so far, it has worked really well for me.

Oumier Wasp Nano Review

While I do like the top cap and it is quite comfortable while vaping, I am a little disappointed that there is only one. I know Ultem is supposed to be pretty durable but let’s face it, this thing is basically some type of plastic. It is eventually going to wear down, weather, or basically just wear out. I would have rather have seen some type of metal piece on the interior or at the very least, a spare. There are two air holes that coincide with air holes on the blocks of the deck when you line everything up. They are oval in shape and this atomizer does have adjustable airflow. The airflow on the Wasp Nano is very smooth and it does give you a pretty good range.

Oumier Wasp Nano Review

The base of the Wasp Nano has two rings going around the circumference of it. They do a nice job of keeping the top cap in place. On the bottom of the base, there is some Wasp Nano branding. There is also a negative post screw that can be removed with a Phillips head screwdriver. The 510 pin has an insulator ring around it and it is removable with a flat head screwdriver. The pin is gold plated and it does protrude from the o’ring insulator. The threading around the 510 pin is smooth and well done. So far, this atomizer has sat flush on every mod I have used it on.

Oumier Wasp Nano Review

THE DECK:

The deck on the Nano has two huge blocks. In the corner of each block, there is a flat head deck screw that coincides with the post hole on each one. The post holes themselves are not really huge but you will be able to get flat wire builds in there. The two post holes each have the sides of them open. So, as long as your coil is the right length and has the correct number of wraps, you should not have any problem sliding your coil into the post holes through the sides.

Oumier Wasp Nano Review

The blocks are kind of squared off at the ends but the long side of them has a curve that corresponds with the circular shape of the deck. The blocks are rather large but they do have an air flow cut out that goes through both blocks. Both blocks kind of form a channel where you place your coil. The air holes go through the blocks and come out in the middle of the channel. The channel itself definitely limits the width of the coil that you can use on the Nano. Because of the length between the two terminals, it also limits the amount of wraps that you can use. As I said earlier, most of the times, I do have to add a wrap or two to my coil in order to get it to fit properly. It’s a solidly constructed deck but at the same time, it is not a very roomy deck. You don’t have a lot of wiggle room as far as coil placement goes. I do love this deck and I like the enclosed feeling that it gives off. I’m sure this type of design definitely contributes to the fantastic flavor on the Wasp Nano.

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

BUILDING AND WICKING:

This is a single coil deck and the Nano deck does take rather long coils. What I mean by long coils is on most of my pre-made coils that I buy, I normally have to add a wrap or two in order to get it to fit in the Wasp Nano. The post holes on the terminals are rather far apart. In fact, you could actually say that they are opposite each other on the circle part of the atomizer.

The deck does definitely constrain you when it comes to the type of build you can use. You definitely need to use a coil with more wraps than you normally would and you are also constrained by the channel. The deck channel goes as far as the width of your coil goes. The biggest coil you can fit in there is probably 3 mm. Building is pretty easy because you can slide your leads in through the open ends of the post holes. Once you secure your leads, there is a little wiggle room to adjust your coil but not much. I place my coil so it sits slightly above the interior air slots.

Oumier Wasp Nano Review

Wicking is actually pretty straightforward on this deck and very easy. Simply slide your cotton through the coil. I like to cut mine right around second o’ring when I measure it up against the base. I cut my cotton straight and I simply tuck it in on the sides.

The Wasp Nano does come with a squonk pin and I have to say that this little guy definitely excels as a squonker. It has a deep enough juice well for squonking and you really don’t have to worry about the juice dispersing evenly because the surface of the bottom of the deck is basically flat and wide open. There are really no other sides to this deck. It’s all one big deck with one nicely sized coil in the middle. I have used it on a squonker for quite some time now and it is definitely one of the better squonk atomizers on the market today. You can over squonk but it does take a lot of juice to do that. Oumier could have made this over squonk proof if they would have drilled out the air holes on the block on a downward slant. They definitely had enough room to pull that off. Oh well, maybe on the Wasp Nano II.

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

The Wasp Nano by Oumier does give you one fantastic vape especially when you consider that it’s a single coil atomizer. The vape is very flavorful and dense. I think that is due to the coils being so close to your mouth. I love to use this atomizer as my convention atomizer. Whenever I go to a vape convention, I hate using the plastic drip tips that they provide so I wind up bringing my own RDA. This is the perfect size for that type of situation because it only takes about 6 to 8 drops to fully saturate your cotton on this RDA. After that, you get about five or six pulls before you have to re-drip again. Just absolutely perfect for tasting juices and taking to a convention.

The flavor on the Wasp Nano is really on point as well. I like the smooth adjustable airflow and I like the clouds that it produces. While this is a single coil RDA, it is no tootle puffer. This thing can chuck clouds with some of the best of them. In fact, while I was walking around the vaping convention with this RDA, people would look at the size of it and then see the cloud that I would blow and say, ‘hey man, what are you vaping on?’. When they found out that it was actually a single coil RDA, most of the people were shocked. It has really good cloud production for an atomizer of its size.

I have always been a big fan of single coil atomizers. I just tend to love all of my one lungers. The reason I like them so much is because you get great flavor and, most of the times, great clouds while using a little more than half the power you normally would on the same coil as a dual build setup. I think it’s great because when you slap an atomizer like this on a dual 18650 mod, you get battery life for days. Just as an example when I used this atomizer at the show in Miami, I was running it at around 38 watts in power mode. I had it on top of my Minikin V2 and I was basically able to get through the whole show every day with one set of batteries. The show opened at 10 am and closed at 7 pm. In fact, only one time during the day did I actually have to swap out the batteries and it was on my way out of the convention center.

WHAT WOULD HAVE MADE IT BETTER:

  • More deck space
  • Larger post holes
  • Allen head grub screws
  • A second top cap
  • More spare o’rings
  • Make the drip tip part of the top cap a tad longer or better yet provide a removable extension piece
  • Air holes drilled on a downward slant

CONCLUSION:

If you are into single coil atomizer, then you definitely want to give the Wasp Nano a serious look. If you are a flavor chaser, you want to take a look at this atomizer as well. If you go to a lot of vape conventions and you don’t like using the provided drip tips like me, then this is the atomizer for you. It has some great build quality to it and the flavor is definitely on point. While this is a flavor first atomizer, the clouds on it or more than respectable as well. People will definitely be shocked when they see the cloud production on the Oumier Wasp Nano. This is also a great atomizer for people who DIY and like to taste some of their juices that they make in small batches. It only takes about 6 to 8 drops to fully saturate the cotton and you will get a good 5 or 6 pulls before you go dry.

I have a lot of atomizers to choose from in my daily rotation and the Wasp Nano has so far stood the test of time. I have been keeping it in my rotation for quite some time now because I have yet to find a single coil atomizer that beats it in flavor or cloud production. Once that happens, I will rotate it out and report back but for now, it’s the King of the Hill in that subcategory. If you meet the criteria that I noted above, you should definitely give the Wasp Nano a legitimate shot at your vaping dollars. It’s DeucesJack approved for the flavor chaser in you.

Geekvape Aegis Legend Starter Kit Review

Geekvape Aegis Legend Starter Kit Review

Geekvape Aegis Legend Starter Kit Introduction

Geekvape is one of my go-to companies if I am looking for reliability and a well-made product. I currently own and still use the original Griffin, Tsunami, Medusa RDA and the Blitzen. These continue to be used because they are great and have outlasted many other products in terms of build quality. Geekvape for me is one of those companies that just stick to what works and do not go down the same route as some other companies and cut corners when it comes to quality and quality control. This is why they will always be considered when they bring out a new product.

I felt happy to review the Geekvape Aegis Legend Starter Kit and since one of the upgrades from the original was the fact it took dual 18650s I was keen to give it a whirl. The original is now 9 months old so this is about the right time for an upgraded version to come out. Bundled in with the mod is the Aero Mesh Tank which I was most pleased to see as I am a big fan of mesh coils in tanks right now!

Geekvape Aegis Legend Starter Kit Packaging List

Inside the box, you will find:

  • Geekvape Aegis Legend Mod
  • Geekvape Aero Mesh Tank
  • Spare Coil
  • Spare parts
  • USB Lead (For charging and firmware upgrade)
  • Warranty and QC cards
  • Instructions

Everything that you would expect to find is included.

A Close Look at the Geekvape Aegis Legend Starter Kit

The Aegis Legend just looks class, in a different league to other box mods on the market. It really looks the part! I was sent the kit in the stealth black variant. It is also available in 4 other colour options. Personally, this was my favourite of the 5 options, I am not a fan of the brown leather look on the silver original and that has made an appearance with this one also. The Aegis packs some impressive stats as you can see below.

Aegis Legend MOD

  • Size: 90.5 x 58 x 30.6mm
  • MAX power output: 200W
  • Output mode: VW/VPC/TC/TCR/BYPASS/VPC
  • Resistance range: 0.05-3.0ohm
  • Material: Aluminum + Zinc alloy + silicone
  • Battery: 2x 18650 cells (not included)
  • Temperature Range: 100-315℃/200-600℉
  • Level: IP67 waterproof and dustproof; MIL-STD 810G-516.6 military grade shockproof

Geekvape Aegis Legend Starter Kit ReviewThe Aegis Legend straight out of the box feels comfortable to hold. Despite it being a little bigger than its predecessor it is extremely ergonomic in the hand. The leather grip piece adding comfort to the mod rather than just being there for looks. As you can see from the specs it is claimed that the mod is waterproof, shockproof and dustproof. I loved watching reviewers like The Devil Vaper and Vaping With Vic putting the original through torture to test these claims out. I did notice a disclaimer on the box about warranty being void if the damage is caused by liquid. Water is a liquid if there was any way that this did, in fact, damage the mod I would have thought that it should have been covered. I did reach out to Geekvape for confirmation but as yet have not had a reply.

Even Closer Look

Starting at the top of the mod. Right up top as you would expect, you will find the most central 510 connection. This is spring loaded and has a fair bit of play. To the left, you will see a small rubber covering that seals up the USB port, which is used for charging and firmware upgrades. Down the left side almost from top to bottom is a sleek plastic covering that surrounds the buttons and covers the screen. At the top of this side is the fire button, used also to power on and access the mode control system. Below is the screen which is of an average size but does contain all the information that you need in an easily readable font. Plus its a full-colour display with 3 colour variations to choose from. Below are the up and down buttons which control the various modes and when used in conjunction with each other or the fire button perform other functions too.

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

Buttons

  • Down or Up + Fire = Enter display brightness – Keep holding fire and press up and down to go between 0%-100% brightness. I did not notice much difference above 15% in normal conditions
  • Up+Down together locks the wattage/temp, press them again to unlock
  • Up+Down+Fire puts into stealth mode, the screen remains slightly illuminated but is blank. Press all three again to resume normal display.
  • Click Fire 3X fast enters the mode selection, indicated by the mode becoming highlighted. Up and down cycles the modes. Hold fire to confirm and select.
  • Click Fire 5x fast to turn on and off.

And More

Simple enough to operate and still enough options to have a play around with. Continuing with the look around. The base is where you will find the battery door. Constructed of 40hrc carbon steel this thing feels like it is a door to a vault! A sliding latch secures the door into the body. Continuing up the right side is the leather grip which looks and feels great. Red stitching compliments this design well. The front and back are partially the leather handgrip and an aluminium frame and silicone body covering. One thing I did notice is that not all micro USB leads fit, this is due to the shape of the cut out for the wire to go into. The included one fits perfectly. Mostly all you should be using the USB port for in any case is to perform firmware updates. Charging is recommended to be carried out externally.

Aero SubOhm Tank

The Aero mesh tank that comes with the kit is an impressive little tank. With a 5.5ml capacity when using the bubble glass. The mesh coils that come preinstalled give a fantastic amount of flavour and nice dense vapour production as I would expect from a mesh stock coil. Rated at 0.2ohm I was using the mesh coil with no issues at 70-80w and thoroughly enjoyed it. Coil life was around 3 weeks which is towards the longer end of the scale for a stock coil. However, with the included 0.15 quad coil I found the vaping experience a little dry and a little disappointing. That said its good to have variety as some people may not like the mesh coil. The quad coil for me also seemed more restrictive in terms of airflow. Another point worth mentioning is that the mesh coil also fits the Smok TFV8 baby tank which would be a massive upgrade for it in terms of coil!

Geekvape Aegis Legend Starter Kit ReviewSpecifications:

  • Diameter: 25mm
  • Capacity: 4ml
  • Coil Type: Super Mesh 0.2ohm (30-90w); IM4 0.15ohm (60-80w)
  • Thread: 510 thread

Included:

  • Aero Tank (with 0.2ohm super mesh coil)
  • Extra 0.15ohm IM4 coil
  • Spare parts pack
  • Spare glass tube
  • User manual

Geekvape Aegis Legend Starter Kit Final Thoughts

I have been using the Aegis Legend non-stop since first getting it through for review. I have found it to be incredibly user-friendly. As well as being ergonomic in the hand it is not too heavy. Especially when you consider all of the materials that have gone into this mod. I did not put it to any of the stress tests to test its shockproofing or waterproofing but I know that there will be reviewers out there that will do this in their own way over on Youtube. I am also aware that Mooch has also carried out his own testing to confirm all of the claims. That was good enough for me.

Geekvape Aegis Legend Starter KitThe AS chip gives a great deal of satisfaction when it comes to using the mod. Firing is fast and I even found myself enjoying temp control for a change. Everything was just so smooth! Do I feel that this is a good upgrade to the original Aegis? Yes, in many ways it is. It just feels a little better in the hand than the original and dual 18650 is a must for me. Though dual 20700 would be amazing!
