WISMEC Reuleaux RX Gen3 Kit Review

WISMEC has won me over. After several years of avoiding the company’s RX line of 3- and 4-battery mods because of looks, size and sheer excess, WISMEC finally made a mod that even the biggest skeptics can appreciate – the WISMEC Reuleaux RX Gen3.

And to seal the deal even further, they threw in a sweet little tank to go with it. This kit caught me by surprise, and has rapidly become a go-to device for me at home, on the road, and seemingly everywhere in between. Let’s see why.

Anything four can do, three can do better…

First impressions aren’t everything…

At first glance, the WISMEC Reuleaux RX Gen3 looks like “just another” WISMEC mod, right down to the triangular wedge shape, the JayBo branding, and the Tron-era graphics that adorn the box. It’s a design concept that WISMEC has employed for a while, with only the recent RX300 QUAD-battery box straying from the path.

Thankfully, that’s where the similarities end, because opening the packaging reveals much more thoughtfulness and smart design.

The size will be a bone of contention for WISMECfans looking for another similarly styled RX mod. But I doubt these people will have a problem with the rest of the kit, which includes a Gnome sub-ohm tank, spare glass, extra coil, USB cable, 510 drip tip and adapter, and the usual assortment of warranty and warning cards.Opening the box, users will see that the ReuleauxRX Gen3 is NOTICEABLY smaller and more compact than its big brothers, yet still claims to hit a legitimate 300-watt output using just three 18650 cells. Our brown/black test model looked entirely more streamlined than previous Wismec offerings, and felt great in the hand – weighty, but not heavy – upon removing it from the foam insert.

A special top of the cap to WISMEC for one of the best, most thorough set of manuals seen on a Chinese product. Both the device and Gnome instructions are well-translated and easy to understand – hardly a given in today’s vape marketplace. The only black mark is the translation error that indicated the RX Gen3came with three 18650 cells – I had to look in the box twice to make sure my kit wasn’t pilfered during shipment.

Size is overrated… features are not

In the hands, the Reuleaux RX Gen3 just feels right. Not just for the obvious size difference, but also because WISMEC made a smart move by moving the battery door to the bottom of the device, instead of the oddly flimsy back door design that left noticeable gaps on previous editions. Even the failed RX 2/3 adjustable format did little to rectify the unfinished feel of the mod. The RX Gen3, on the other hand, feels solid, complete, and altogether more confident.

Once the batteries are installed, the bright 1.3-inch OLED display employs an attractive, easy to read series of hexagons indicating wattage/voltage, temperature, coil resistance, puff counter and duration, battery charge levels and more.

Three easy clicks bring you to the mode menu, where you can quickly jump between wattage and a full slate of temperature controls options, including nickel, titanium, stainless steel, three TCR modes, and resistance lock.

Despite its 300-watt capability, the Reuleaux RX Gen3 is by no means unsafe. Wismec smartly included a range of protection features that are clearly displayed on the screen when needed, eliminating any confusion about causes of failure.

Instead, the large screen indicates atomizer low, short, temperature alerts, 10-second cutoff, weak or imbalanced batteries, USB connectivity problems, charging errors and even battery installation problems. This is a powerful mod, and having these protections in place – in an easy-to-understand manner – are key for safe vaping.

How does the Reuleaux RX Gen3 Perform?

WISMEC Reuleaux RX Gen3 Kit Review - Spinfuel Vape MagazineLet’s get the obvious question out of the way first – can the WISMEC Reuleaux RX Gen3 TRULY hit 300 watts using just three 18650 cells? Yes, my friends, yes it can. Not for long, mind you. But for everyday vapers looking to fly a little closer to the sun, yes, the RX Gen3 is a great cloud chucker.

Obviously, with only three batteries under the hood, anything north of 200 watts is going to drain power quickly and inefficiently. But using a build just a hair higher of the Gen3’s 0.05-ohm bottom limit, I managed to successfully and comfortably puff at 300 watts for longer than expected. The device  got warm, but never too hot, and the vapor production was nothing short of massive.

That said, I don’t feel this is the best use of the device. I believe the 300-watt headroom is nice, but when using the RX Gen 3 at a more reasonable 70-100 watts, it really began to sing – with and without its included Gnome sub-ohm tank. At these levels, I experienced fantastic flavor and vapor using a variety of tanks and drippers – all of which sat flush, and performed admirably on the Reuleaux RX Gen3.

The battery life is also an item worth noting. When used with the Gnome tank at 70-90 watts, I got nearly nine (!) hours of steady vaping before the cells began to skip a beat. The RX Gen 3 utilizes a proprietary battery balancing system to ensure the device never falters, even if the cells aren’t draining at equal levels.

Though the battery indicators showed some distinct level differences when vaping, by the time I reached the end of testing, they were evenly matched, and still performing when I opted for a recharge. And, using the onboard 2A charging, the cells were full and ready to go in just under three hours (though the device was a little warm afterwards).

Moving into temperature control, I very easily switched between coil types and set customer TCR levels through the intuitive on-screen interface. I would have appreciated some form of PC/MAC software to make preheating and temp curves easier, but that’s nitpicking – the onscreen menus do the job admirably without too many finger gymnastics to get in the way.

Vaping in temp control was predictably excellent, with accurate, flavorful performance throughout my lineup of test coils. Though I prefer to vape no higher than 425 degrees Fahrenheit, the RX Gen3 never wavered, all the way to the max 600-degree temperature limit.

One odd item of note – despite the symmetric, more palm-friendly design, Wismec chose to offset the 510-connection atop the RX Gen 3. Now, I won’t claim to know how these devices are made, and the device certainly packs a lot of technology into a small space. But moving the connector to the center position would allow for a much wider range of atomizers to sit without overhang.

As it stands, any tank or RDA wider than 25mm will jut out slightly. It’s not a deal-breaker, and doesn’t affect performance, but I would have loved to see how the Reuleaux RX Gen3handled a 30mm tank.

About the Gnome

The included WISMEC Gnome sub-ohm tank is a flavor-focused atomizer, with strong Kanthal coils and serious potential. I just wish the damn thing was bigger!

With just 2ml of capacity, bottom airflow control, and the ability to chuck vapor with the best of them, the Gnome functions almost like a dripper, since you’ll be refilling e-liquid about as often as you would with an RDA. That said, it’s absolutely amazing while it lasts.

Using the pre-installed WM02 dual-coil head, the Gnome produced some of the most flavorful and abundant vapor I’ve had in some time, even at relatively low wattage. I imagine the proximity of the coil to the mouthpiece plays a role in this, but I’ve used RDAs that didn’t produce these results.

The WM03 triple coil head is rated for up to 130 watts, but really doesn’t need it. I had no issues at those levels, but enjoyed equally flavorful, thick vapor at 80-90 watts, rendering the higher limit a little excessive.

Regardless, I’m currently on day five with the WM02, and it is still operating above and beyond expectations. Though I can’t expect much more from this solitary coil, it’s nice to know the Gnome will endure a wade range of wattages and heavy use before breaking down.

I would have loved to see an RBA head included to demonstrate how the Gnomeperformed with temp control coils and higher-wattage scenarios. But there is one available, and I will be purchasing it as soon as it arrives at a shop near me.

Final Thoughts…

The WISMEC Reuleaux RX Gen3 is a feature-filled vape device, for a very attractive kit price. With true, proven power under the hood, ergonomic design, and easy to use menus and features, the RX Gen3 is a complete package that will appeal to volume vapers and sub-ohm newcomers alike.

Though I’ve avoided purchasing Reuleaux series mods in the past, I’ve always considered them before opting for more pocket-friendly options. Their reputations were excellent, as were the price points. But I ultimately found holding and operating them to be clunky and unwieldy. Wismec has more than rectified this problem here.

Ply Rock Limitless Pulse Review – Refillable Pod System

About the Ply Rock Limitless Pulse

The Ply Rock Limitless Pulse is a refillable pod vape pen which is a direct competitor to the Pax JUUL.  The Pulse is automatically activated when inhaling the device.  Some features that make the pulse stand out over its competitors is the ability to refill the pods with a vape juice of choice and that utilizes a micro-USB port for recharging.  These pod systems have been highly successful at getting smokers off cigarettes.  The Pulse is available in seven different colors which include White, Black, Blue, Red, Gold, Rose Gold and Silver.

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

Functions

Although the Limitless Pulse comes with one button, it does not need to be pressed to vape. The device works automatically and initiates once it is inhaled. The button serves three purposes:

  • To turn the device on or off (click 5x)
  • To change the color of the light displayed when vaped (click once per color)
  • To go into Stealth mode (click 3x)
ply rock limitless pulse

The Limitless Pulse can display up to seven colors.

A user can pick up to seven colors which include: red, light blue, lime, green, turquoise, dark blue, and purple. Stealth mode is a great feature to have when not wanting to draw any attention while vaping. The device is still on, but the bright LED lights are turned off in this mode. This discreet function is best when vaping in restaurants, movie theaters or anywhere else where vaping may be frowned upon.

Safety Features

  • Low Battery Warning
  • Low Resistance

Limitless Pulse Battery

The Pulse battery is rated at 350 mAh and generates 8 watts of power. A typical Vaper can vape for approximately three to four hours before needing to recharge. The device utilizes a micro-USB port for charging and it is pass-through enabled, which means it can be vaped while charging. A full charge can be achieved in as little as 40 minutes.

Pulse Pods

ply rock limitless pulse

The Pulse Pod can be refilled by removing the mouthpiece and lifting the orange rubber seal.

The Limitless Pulse kit comes with a pre-installed refillable pod and a spare pod.  The great thing about the Pulse is that Vapers can choose what vape juice they want to use.  Lets face it, most pre-filled pods are not known for their great tasting vape juice, so this is a definite plus.  Each pod can be refilled approximately 30 times before needing to be replaced.  Light to moderate vapers can arguably vape for a month or two before needing to purchase additional pods.  Replaceable pods come in packs of three and currently cost about $15.00.  This device works with Nicotine Salt based vape juice.

Suggested Vape Juice: SaltNic VGOD vape juice is highly recommended for these types of pod systems. SaltNic is based out of southern California and have some amazing Nicotine Salt based vape juice. I recommend the Cubano Black or LushIce.

Source differ on how much vape juice these pods can hold, the numbers range from 1.0 to 2.0 ml of juice. A full pod should provide 150-200 puffs before needing to be refilled.  That equals to about 1.5 to 2 hours of vaping.

The pods utilize a silica wicking material and are rated at 1.8 ohm resistance.

Coilart Azeroth RDTA Review

Introduction: Coilart Azeroth

Coilart’s latest atomizer is known as the Azeroth.

A Rebuildable Dripping Tank Atomizer or RDTA for short.Coilart Azeroth RDTA review

It is made from stainless steel and reinforced glass, has a 4ml capacity and has an interesting build deck that features post clamps to ensure a secure connection for your builds.

A large vortex styled airflow configuration also means that this can compete with the best of them when it comes to cloud chasing!

Free Shipping options

Inside the Box

  • Coilart Azeroth RDTA
  • 510 drip tip adaptor
  • Alternative delrin drip tip
  • Spare glass tank
  • Screwdriver
  • Post screws
  • O-rings
  • Two spare post clamps

Key features

  • 4ml capacity
  • 24mm width
  • 54mm height
  • Manufactured from stainless steel with a glass tank section
  • Side filling port
  • Choice of two drip tips
  • 510 drip tip adaptor
  • Large build deck with gold plated clamp system
  • 510 threaded
  • Comes in silver or black

Design and Build Quality

The Coilart Azeroth has your atypical RDTA design, with a rebuildable dripping atomizer styled deck at the top, and underneath this there is a 4ml tank reservoir.

It has very good build quality, being made from 304 grade stainless steel, with food grade pyrex glass used for the tank.

Threading overall is very smooth indeed, and it all feels like a well manufactured piece of kit.

A 4ml capacity is available with the Coilart Azeroth, so it does hold plenty of juice, and this is refilled through a hole located on the side.

How To Fill The Coilart Azeroth

To gain access and reveal the filling port, you just need to slide the top cap upwards. Teen of course just fill with your chosen liquid.

Be sure to make sure the top cap has been firmly replaced once done filling.How to fill the Coilart Azeroth RDTA

 

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

Threading

The 510 threading features a gold plated 510 connector, which protrudes fairly far out from the connector itself.

Being gold plated this means you get extra conductivity over standard stainless steel/brass connector pins, making this good for use with mechanical mods.Coilart Azeroth RDTA base

The 510 connector pin is adjustable with a flat headed screwdriver, so you can make sure that you get a nice flush fit with no gap between your Coilart Azeroth and your chosen mod.

Coilart Azeroth Build Deck

A unique feature of the Coilart Azeroth is the gold plated clamp system that is used on the build deck.Coilart Azeroth Build Deck

Inserting Your Coil Build & Wicking

To insert your coil build:

  • Unscrew the post screws
  • Lift the clamps up
  • Slot your coils in

After this, you tighten the screws down and the clamps should hold your build steady for you.

There are also ample wicking holes present for you to simply push the ends of your wick through, meaning that it does make wicking this RDTA very easy indeed.Coilart Azeroth RDTA

Unfortunately..

Even though the clamp system is a great idea in principle, I found that the build deck was quite possibly the worst aspect of this tank.

It isn’t user friendly in the slightest, and if you like building large coils then the clamp system will frustrate you immensely.Coilart Azeroth clamp system

The clamps and the screws that hold them simply aren’t big enough to hold down your coil legs securely if you are using a large coil build, which I suspect many potential users of this RDTA would like to do.

Airflow

The Coilart Azeroth appeals directly to those that enjoy chasing clouds and a very airy draw, as there is a vast amount of airflow to be found.

There are large airflow slots around the top cap, which you can be adjusted by rotating the top cap to your liking.

Even if you close the airflow down, this still gives you a pretty airy draw, so if you like a tight draw you may want to look at buying something else.

How Does The Coilart Azeroth Perform?

I was left really impressed with how the Coilart Azeroth performed, it’s no slouch when it comes to flavour or vapour!

Firstly I felt that the flavour from this RDTA really was up there with the top RDTA’s on the market right now, it produces a very enjoyable and flavourful vape and I never felt that I had any issues with muted flavour.Coilart Azeroth parts

If you like putting a lot of power through your RDTA’s, then this still keeps up even at high wattage levels.

As you would expect from an RDTA in this style, sporting the airflow that it has, the Coilart Azeroth is excellent for cloud chasing.

You can get a very airy hit from this RDTA, and some pretty huge vapour can be produced too.

It does seem to stay cool when subjected to low resistance builds, which is another plus point for cloud chasers.

The 4ml tank capacity won’t last too long though, so thankfully it’s pretty painless to refill.

What I Liked

The overall performance of the Coilart Azeroth is great. I felt it performed really well at giving both a really flavourful vape, and being able to produce a lot of vapour.

The build quality is pretty much top notch, save for the troublesome build deck, with a real premium finish to it too.

It does seem to stay pretty cool under high wattage use, which is a major plus point for those who like sub ohm builds.

What I Don’t Like

I didn’t like the fact that single coil builds aren’t catered for here, you are restricted to a dual coil build only.

The post clamps are to put it bluntly, a nightmare to build with, and they do taint the experience of what is actually a very well performing atty.

They are supposed to hold your builds securely in place however I found them too flimsy to hold large coil builds down properly.

The Coilart Azeroth isn’t a beginner friendly atomizer, this is one that people with a fair amount of rebuilding experience will need to get to grips with.

It really isn’t easy to build, and it would give a newbie nightmares!

Final Review Verdict

Overall the Coilart Azeroth is a real top performing RDTA, that has performed as well as any other RDTA that I have tried.

But overall the whole experience was let down by the difficulty experienced when building it.

If you can get around the difficulty in building this RDTA, then you will be rewarded with an atomizer that produces top class flavour and vapour too.

Pros

  • Great flavour
  • Big vapour production
  • Very well priced
  • Easy to fill
  • Great looks
  • Lots of airflow options
  • Two different styles of drip tip included which can affect your vape
  • Stays cool under low resistance use

Cons

  • Dual coil only
  • Post clamp system is a nightmare
  • Not beginner friendly
  • Very thirsty
  • Will leak if side filling port not closed off properly
  • Will also leak if wicking holes are not properly covered

  • SMOK ProColor 225W TC Starter Kit – Spinfuel VAPE Magazine

What Comes With The SMOK ProColor 225W Kit

Packed inside the well-designed cardboard box of the ProColor 225W Kit is the device itself, a TFV8 Big Baby Sub Ohm Tank with a preinstalled 0.4 ohm coil, a second 0.15 ohm coil, a spare Pyrex Glass replacement tube, one micro-USB charging cable, a spare o-rings pack, two vape bands and a user manual.

 

SMOK ProColor Design & Features Overview

The SMOK ProColor 225W Box Mod’s dimensions are 85mm x 46mm x 29.5mm, fits atomizers up to 28mm for no overhang and weighs about 150 grams. The device features a stainless steel 510 connection and is outfitted with a spring-loaded and brass-coated stainless steel 510 connecting pin. It is furnished with a lateral side activation bar that is easy to fire with a slight squeeze.

The SMOK ProColor 225W is coated with a more durable paint finish and has a clear coat to avoid the paint chipping issue previous SMOK device models had. Surrounding the screen of the device is the eye-catching shield shaped LED light-up bezel of the device. Definitely the crowning jewel of this vaporizer the LED Bezel has 12 different vibrant color settings, 5 light styles and 3 different light-up variations—for a truly customizable look.

The display of the SMOK ProColor 225W is crystal clear and very appealing to the eye, it also does a great job of being able to pack a lot of information in a limited area. With the HD display on, a user can keep a good track of the device’s settings like atomizer resistance, current battery level, voltage, puff counter and more. The menu is easy to use, though having to switch between a long press or short press of the ProColor’s buttons to navigate the menu is a pretty inefficient feature as a user can easily mess up their presses and can lead back to the beginning of the menu.

The SMOK ProColor has preheat and temperature control capabilities and even a memory mode so a user can input specific settings to pair with different atomizers and quickly switch to the matching setting with a few clicks. The mod has a maximum power output of up to 225 watts with a voltage range of 0.5 to 9.0 volts and has a resistance range of 0.1 ohm – 3.0 ohms in VW Mode and 0.06 ohms to 3.0 ohms in TC Modes. The device is also furnished with built-in safety features such as short circuit protection, overheat protection, low battery protection and a 12 second cut-off for a foolproof vaping experience.

 

A Cloud-Churner with the TFV8 Big Baby Beast

Paired with the Big Baby Beast Sub Ohm Tank, the SMOK ProColor 225W truly performs. The Big Baby Beast Sub Ohm Tank is included with the full kit version of the device and is well-known for its ability to create huge clouds and delicious flavor with each puff. Preinstalled in the tank is a 0.4 ohm Q2 atomizer coil for robust flavor and as a back up a 0.15 ohm T8 octuple coil is included which churns out incredible clouds.

Overall Conclusion

During use the performance of the SMOK ProColor 225W Box Mod is pretty remarkable and promising, although it sports a 225 watt rating, it didn’t perform at that level (as with similar devices). It maxed out at around 190 watts to 200 watts but is a good number and was still impressive in its cloud-churning abilities.

For those who are huge fan of the Alien 220W Box Mod, upgrading to the SMOK ProColor 225W Box Mod is a great idea. The device is solidly built and feels great in the hand, the LED Lights are a fun addition to its performance capabilities (definitely a great conversation starter) and the HD Display is informative and easy to read though navigation could use a little work. Paired with the TFV8 Big Baby Beast Sub Ohm Tank, this device is a true pleasure to use and makes an excellent choice for a daily vape setup.

Aspire Revvo Tank Review | Does the ARC Coil Deliver?

Aspire Revvo Tank intro

The Aspire Revvo is a sub ohm tank with a unique top-fill design that allows refilling through the drip tip. But the really interesting innovation here is the new ARC system (Aspire Radial Coil), which some have likened to the old-school “stovetop coils.” But for a sub ohm tank, this is new. Novelty aside, the question is: Does it fulfill the promise to deliver better vapor, flavor, and longevity?

Aspire Revvo Tank specs and features

Kit Content

Specifications

  • 24 mm diameter
  • 3.6 mL juice capacity
  • Stainless steel construction
  • Pyrex glass tank
  • Metal sleeve
  • ARC (Aspire Radial Coil) horizontal coil system
  • ARC coil is 0.10-0.16 ohms
  • rated for 50-100 W
  • Spring-loaded top fill method with spitback protection
  • Adjustable triple top airflow slots (each is 10.5 x 2.5 mm)
  • Sloped wide-bore delrin drip tip
  • 510 connection

Notable Remarks

Aspire Revvo Tank Features

Aspire-revvo-tank

The Revvo tank features a new leakproof design that works very well. To fill it, there’s a funnel-like cone on a spring, inside the drip tip portion. You’ll need a fine-point bottle or glass dripper to fill it though; you can’t just pour juice in. Use the bottle to push down on the funnel cone and then squeeze. The bottom reservoir will fill up. It looks almost like an RDTA in design with the tank positioned under the coils.

To make the fill system work, you’re stuck with the proprietary drip tip. The conical fill port also acts as a spitback protector, which works well. I didn’t get any spitback with this tank.

The Revvo has adjustable top airflow with a stopper, so it doesn’t just spin freely. The airflow adjustment is smooth and easy to adjust, even when it’s on a mod. The tank has a 3.6 mL capacity, which isn’t bad, but a little on the small side. There’s also a 2 mL TPD version as well. When purchased in a kit, you will only get the stainless steel version but it’s also available in black and chrome when purchased separately.

Aspire Revvo Tank and ARC Coil Performance

Aspire-revvo-tank

The Aspire Revvo Tank uses a new type of coil called the ARC (for Aspire Radial Coil). It’s the only option available for the tank and is labeled as a 0.10- 0.16 ohm Kanthal coil. Mine read at 0.15 ohms on the SkyStar mod. The coil itself is flat and looks like an electric stovetop coil. Imagine a notch coil but laid out flat. The idea behind it is to increase surface area in order to produce better flavor and more vapor.

I found the flavor to be just average for the required wattage though. It’s not bad by any means, but I’ve had better. I’ve also had worse tanks so it’s more of a “middle of the pack” performer. But coil life is excellent. Twenty days into writing this review and it’s still working well. I haven’t had any off-flavor or a gunked up coil yet. I suspect you’ll be able to typically get two to three weeks out of one coil.

The Revvo performs best at around 85 watts with the airflow half closed. I enjoyed it on the SkyStar mod in CPS mode, using 90 watts for 1 second, 85 watts for 1 second, 80 watts for 1 second, 75 watts for 2 seconds, and 70 watts the rest of the time.

Likes

  • Leakproof
  • New coil system
  • Great coil life
  • Easy to fill
  • No spitback

Dislikes

  • Flavor and vapor is average
  • Lack of coil and drip tip options
  • Juice capacity is slightly low

Oumier VLS RDA Design, Look and Feel

Simply looking at the VLS RDA displays it’s quality characteristics. Constructed of stainless steel featuring either a PEI Gold cap or Aerospace PC cap, the VLS is eye-catching.

Aesthetics are not the only offering with the VLS, it’s revolutionary building deck design is what sets it apart from the rest of the crowd. Set up for nearly any coil configuration, the VLS is a coil builders dream.

One of its main selling points is its capability of easily installing dual or single vertical coils. Vertical coils can provide a different vaping experience from the standard configuration and previous to the VLS, installing coils vertically onto an atomizer proved challenging.Capable of both single and dual coils in both horizontal and vertical,the VLS provides users with the opportunity to switch between single coil flavor casing and dual coil cloud chasing.

VLS RDA Threads
VLS RDA Threads

The Oumier VLS RDA is equipped with two, completely separate posts. This is possible due to the screws located on the underside of the build deck that hold the posts in place. On the positive post, the screw is extruded slightly father than the negative so that it makes contact with the bottom cover, creating the circuit. This design is innovative and functional.

On each post there are two locations for coil installation,one on top and one on bottom. This allows for very simple installation of both vertical and horizontal coils.

Oumier VLS RDA Coil Installation

Vertical coil installation is very easy, simply placing a lead in both the top and bottom location of a single post and a tightening, repeat for the other post as well. Oumier has done an amazing job setting up the deck of the VLS, not in some time have we seen a building deck as innovative as the VLS

VLS RDA Coil Configuration

Dual vertical coils are simple to install as well, though with the VLS they are stacked rather than adjacent to one another. One coil uses both top post slots while the other uses the two bottom post slots.

Single coil installation for both vertical and horizontal configurations uses only one top post slot and one bottom post slot. Fairly simple to install. No need to pre cut leads for the VLS, simple fit the coil and cut them when they are secured.

Wicking the coils is as simple as installing them, in vertical mode, inserting the wick through the top of the coil and using tweezers to pull it through is the best way. Taking into consideration the size of the juice well on the VLS, the wicks can be left fairly long at the bottom. Fluff out the ends and situate the cotton neatly into the bottom of the deck. Trimming the top to just above the coil, with a light fluff and it is ready to use.

Horizontal wick installation is self explanatory. Insert wicks, fit to size, trim and tuck them in.

Oumier VLS RDA Performance

The VLS is set up to produce both flavor and vapor in a big way. Single coil configurations are going to provide a better flavor experience but will not produce the vapor that a dual configuration will. In both single and dual coil set up, the VLS produces an immense amount of flavor. Compared to many popular RDA’s on the market, the VLS wins in the flavor department.

Flavor is often a by-product of airflow and the VLS has a unique airflow that will take some adjustment to become accustomed to. Due to the smaller size of the 5 hole airflow, the VLS is a very air restricted atomizer. Some may not find this suits them but after a bit of time spent with the VLS, the user will enjoy everything it has to offer.

 

Oumier VLS RDA Conclusion

The VLS RDA is without question the most innovative atomizer to come to the market in quite some time. Expect to see other companies follow suit on this deck design as it is very appealing for all users. Remember the velocity style build decks? They rapidly became commonplace among most atomizers and is still widely used today. Perhaps the deck design of the VLS will take the same route, every vaper should have this atomizer in their collection.

SMOK Resa Prince Sub-Ohm Tank Review

I am scoring the new Resa Prince Sub-Ohm Tanka solid A+. I thought I should get that out of the way now. So if you like the look of the tank, just know that it is wider and bigger than it appears to be. It is, after all, a 7.5mL capacity sub-ohm tank. Knowing this, if you want to buy one, do it, you won’t regret it. Now, let’s get the review…

The SMOK Resa Prince in Detail

The Resa Prince is truly one magnificent Sub-Ohm Tank. Having said that, there is a mystery that I cannot unravel. Even after using mine for 10 days, I’m baffled as to why my preinstalled 0.4ohm V12 Prince-Q4 Quadruple Coil is still delivering superb performance. This is NOT the coil that drives the TFV12 Baby Prince, it’s the same coil that drives the full-size Prince. In fact, the preinstalled Q4 in the Resa Prince is identical to the preinstalled Q4 of the TFV12 Prince. I’ve never gotten more than 7 days from a full-size Prince Q4 or X6, yet when it sits in the Resa Prince, I’m 10 days out and running strong. Why?

I’ve decided it is either my imagination, or that the Coils that come with the Resa Prince are somehow different than their official Replacement Coils, which are the sameReplacement Coils for the TFV12 Prince. Or, the design of the airflow slots delivers the air over the coils in a way that extends the life and performance of the Prince Coils. That said, I do have a theory, one I will share with you at the end of this long review.

What I do know as a cold hard fact, the Resa Prince is a far better performer than the TFV12 BABY Prince, which use the older V8 Baby Coils.

Using the same e-liquid I always use, KILO Black Series Birthday Cake I purchase through Element Vape or Breazy (depending on their stock levels), I have been using the same preinstalled Coil for 10 solid days with less than a 1% drop in performance. After all this time, I’m getting the same awesome flavor fidelity, the same huge clouds of vapor, every time I use it. It’s as though I’m (almost) using a fresh Coil every day. But, that’s impossible, right?

One Sub-Ohm Tank – Two In-Depth Reviews

There will be 2 in-depth Reviews for the SMOK TFV12 Resa Prince Sub-Ohm Tank, plus our previous Preview. This is the first Review. The reason for another full review of the Resa Prince is so that whatever evaluations we make about this tank is either backed up by another reviewer, or another reviewer has a different experience than I do. I have no idea what will be said in the other review, but I trust myself enough to say that in my 6 years of experience of writing for Spinfuel VAPE, the Resa Prince worthy of the high praise I’m giving it.
Our second review, due in about a week, will cover the Resa Prince tanks we received from Element Vape, which also came directly from SMOKTech to Element Vape, and then directly to Spinfuel VAPE. Every Resa Prince, like every other Tank we’ve reviewed, is 100% genuine, along with the replacement Coils, of which we already have dozens of packs in our stockroom.The Resa Prince Tanks I’m using came directly from SMOKTech to Vapor Authority to Spinfuel VAPE. This first review is based on the two tanks we received ahead of our full shipments from Vapor Authority and Element Vape.

I sincerely suggest that should you decide to purchase this awesome new tank, do so from the vendors we trust just to be sure you’re not buying a counterfeit.

The TFV12 Resa Prince – Inside and Out

The SMOK Resa Prince Sub-Ohm Tank is a Sub-Ohm tank that is similar to the full-size TFV12 Prince, and yet different at the same time. While both Sub-Ohm Tanks use the same TFV12 Coils; the Prince Q4, X6 and T10, though the newly designed T10 is called the V12 Prince-T10 Red Light Coil because it emits a fairly powerful red light while you vape.

Note*As of now, we cannot find replacement coils for the V12 Prince-T10 that include the Red-Light functionality. Until information about the T10 become clearer, purchasing replacement T10 Coils means purchasing Coils without the Red-Light function. Strange, right?

Confusion

In a couple of ways I find the TFV12 Resa Prince confusing. I can’t quite decide why SMOK executives believed the Resa Prince needed to come into existence, other than the fact that SMOK could do it.

There seems to be two game plans at work here. In one SMOK uses the same playbook it has used since the TFV8 Cloud Beast, meaning that there was the Cloud Beast, then the Baby Beast, then the Big Baby Beast.
The TFV12 Prince seemed to reset the first Playbook. After wide acceptance and positive reviews from us and many others, SMOK followed the V8 playbook using the Prince as the new TFV12 Flagship, basically leaving the Cloud Beast King hanging out to dry.After the V8 Big Baby BeastSMOK seemed to do a one-off with the TFV12 Cloud Beast King, a monster of the tank that was so powerful many people believed it to be so high-performance that it couldn’t be used as an every-day-all-day Sub-Ohm Tank. And they were right, for the majority anyway. So, the next move for SMOK was to take the same TFV12 moniker and build a NEW tank that required less than half the power to deliver exquisite flavor and humungous clouds of vapor, yet with a totally new design, and that could be used as an all-day-ever-day tank… the TFV12 Prince.

The playbook called for SMOK to release a Baby version, and they did… the TFV12 Baby Prince, but they cheated. The TFV12 Coils, even the Prince Coils that required so little power to produce incredible performance, were just too large to fit into a “baby sized” tank. So the TFV12 Baby Prince was born, but instead of TFV12 Coils, SMOK reverted to the V8 Coil line. If you own a TFV8 Big Baby Beast, or any other V8 Tank, feel free to use those coils in the TFV12 Baby Prince.

Now, beginning last week, and according to the playbook, the Big Baby Prince was born. The TFV12 Big Baby Prince looks a lot like the Prince, and the Baby Prince, but holds more e-liquid, and yet uses the same V8-Baby Coils.

With the birth of the Big Baby Prince, which, as of now, is only available on a couple of SMOK Starter Kits (the newly released SMOK H-PRIV 2 Kit for example), comes the simultaneous release of another brand-new Tank… The Resa Prince.

This will undoubtedly reset the playbook again.

The Resa Prince looks nothing like the Prince, the Baby Prince, or the Big Baby Prince. It uses the full-size Prince Coils, holds 7.5mL of e-liquid, just .5mL less than the full-size Prince’s 8mL.  Despite using the same Coils as the full-sized Prince, it is designated at a brand-new tank design.

Can there be any doubt that a Baby Resa and a Big Baby Resa is on the drawing board already? What do you think? End of May? Mid-June?

Just How the TFV12 Resa Prince Differs

Briefly; the Resa Prince uses a new top-fill system, gone is swing away hinge cap. The 810 Cobra Resin Drip Tip is shorter, the concave-convex glass tube is wider and shorter than the Prince, and the body is all magnificent Cobra Resin Design.

The Resa Prince uses a simple twist off top cap that reveals two semi-large fill slots for e-liquid. The top cap threading is smooth, but I wouldn’t describe it as silky smooth. It’s shorter drip tip is threaded, and fits snugly into the top cap. The Resa Prince also handle heat dissipation better than the Prince, and certainly better than the Baby Prince.

Vaping at the highest wattages (120W) possible for the coil I noticed the heat dissipationof the glass, drip tip, and chassis are extraordinarily cool to the touch, more so than the original Prince.

The Resa Prince has an all Stainless-Steel body that is covered in a beautiful resin-dyed material that forms the look of an “all Cobra Resin” Sub-Ohm Tank. Each “finish” is said to be unique, though the two “black” Resa Prince tanks we have on hand are at least 99.99% identical (I couldn’t find a difference). Our second review will cover the other colors and talk about any special markings found in the supposedly unique finishes. Particularly the new 7-color model, which is dark, and incredibly beautiful.

The defaultglass tube is a bulb-shaped tube that provides the 7.5mL juice capacity, while the spareglass tube is straight and has a maximum capacity of 5mL. Seeing both glass tubes I can’t imagine anyone wantingto remove the bulb-shaped tube for the straight glass tube. I would have rather SMOK inserted a second bulb-shaped 7.5mL glass tube.

The Resa Prince is also the only Prince to offer the LED light-up coil with the above-mentioned new 0.12ohm V12 Prince-T10 Red Light Coil. It has a range of 60 to 120W. I found the optimal range for this Coil to be between 70-78W, but I only used it for a a few hours.

The 0.4ohm V12 Prince-Q4 Quadruple Coil (preinstalled) is rated for 40 to 100W and a 0.15ohm V12 Prince X-6 Sextuple Coil rated for 50-120W. The Resa Prince also offers an optional RBA Head. So far, I give the flavor and vapor to the Q4, with the X6 a close second. The V10 is a cloud chucker, with good, but not the best flavor Coil of the bunch.

Vaping with, and Expectations of the Resa Prince

Finding just the right Vape Mod to use with the Resa Prince was a task I was not ready for when it arrived. Honestly, I thought the Resa Stick would release first. The Resa Stick is the Resa version of the Stick Prince, and from what I understood, this would be our first exposure to the Resa Tank. The Stick battery is identical to the Resa Prince, so the tank and battery match. Since the Resa Prince came first, choosing a mod that would complement the Resa Prince took some trial and error.

I wound up splitting the past 10 days of vaping the Resa Prince with the upcoming Pioneer4You Trantor Mod (equipped with the YiHi SX520 chipset), and the brand new SMOK H-PRIV 2. The Kit version ships with the TFV12 Big Baby Prince, which uses the V87-Baby Coils.

That said, the H-PRIV 2 has the same Resa “Cobra Resin” “honeycomb” design throughout its exterior and matches the Resa Prince nearly perfectly. In fact, I believe it would have been a better move to ship the H-PRIV 2 with a Resa Prince instead of the Big Baby Prince.

Wrapping Up and the Score

If you’ve been vaping with a full-size Prince, you know what a great job these full-sizPrince Coils can do. The Resa Prince produces a fuller, somewhat thicker mouthful of vapor, and about equally awesome flavor as the Prince. I won’t choose between the full-sizPrince and the Resa Prince in performance, though I admit the Resa Prince is ever so slightly more attractive than the Prince… it’s like deciding which actress, Odette Anabelleor Evangeline Lily, is the more attractive. For me, it depends on the day, the weather, how busy I am, and my general mood… it changes from day to day, moment to moment…
Once More about the TFV12 Coils – A Theory

If the coils in the Resa Prince kit are indeed just the same V12 coils that are in the Prince Kit, and replacement packs, then I have no idea why these coils are lasting as long as they are. But perhaps, just perhaps, SMOK has improved the standard TFV12 Prince Coils and are using them in the Resa Prince … and will be rolling them out as the old TFV12 Coil inventory dwindles down. Now wouldn’t that be fantastic?

Augvape Templar RDA Review

The Templar RDA from Augvape is a 24-mm single-post rebuildable atomizer that features an innovative “velocity clamp system” build-deck, a highly-customizable airflow control, as swell as squonk-mod compatibility. The Templar is being marketed as an all-round good RDA, offering both great flavor production and excellent flavor.

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

A Look at the Contents

The Augvape Templar comes in a tubular cardboard box featuring the Chinese company’s logo, an authenticity seal and some social media icons, in case you want to keep an eye out for new Augvape products and promotions.

Inside the box, we have the Templar RDA placed in a circular Styrofoam holder, and if you remove that, you’ll also find a frosted glass barrel with a built in drip tip, as well as a bag of spare o-rings, a hollowed-out squonk pin and an 810-to-510 drip tip adapter. Unfortunately, Augvape doesn’t include any coils or even one of those small screw-drivers, which I consider a small con. If this happens to be your first RDA, you’re going to have to buy some coils, or at least some wire to build them yourself, and that sucks. At least add a couple of cheap coils, like most other manufacturers, and leave it up to the buyer if they want to use them or not.

Design and Build Quality

One of the most appealing features of the Augvape Templar RDA is its size. Even though it measures a decent 24mm in diameter, it is considerably shorter than many of the other RDAs in its categories, and as someone who doesn’t like atomizers sticking out too much from the mod, I consider that a pro.

Starting from the top, the Templar features a Goon-style Delrin drip-tip, which I was a bit worried about considering the reduced height of this atomizer. I was sure spit-back was going to be an issue, with such a wide-bore and the coils located so close to my mouth, but it turned out to be a non-issue. Anyway, you can always replace it with taller 810 drip tips, or even a 510 tip, by using the included adapter.

The drip-tip connects to a removable top cap which you can rotate to the adjust the airflow coming through the air slots on the barrel. The top cap features a stepped design slightly similar to that of The Drop RDA, giving the user great control over how much air gets into the atomization chamber. You basically have three levels to work with, each of which can be adjusted as well, so you can tweak the airflow to perfection.

The stainless steel barrel of the RDA features the Templar logo, a nice design that combines a couple of blades with a warrior helmet, and a two airflow slots made up of smaller holes, on opposing sides of the barrel. These small holes are laid out on three rows, and by rotating the top cap, you can gradually block each of these holes to adjust the airflow. You can cover the entire front row of holes, the first two rows, or just one row and two holes from the second one, or even all three rows. You basically have a lot more control over the airflow than you do on most other RDAs.

However, the frosted-glass barrel included in the kit doesn’t offer this level of airflow cusomization. In fact, it offers no airflow adjustment at all, just two slanted airflow slots on each side. It’s ok, if you don’t mind an airier draw, but I personally prefer the option to fine-tune the airflow. Also, this barrel has a non-removable drip-tip, so if you don’t like it, there’s nothing you can do about it.

Finally, the base of the Templar RDA houses the build deck on one side, and the 510 connection pin on the other. The pin protrudes just a little bit, so I definitely would not recommend using this atomizer with a hybrid mechanical mod. You can also take out the 510 pin, and replace it with the hollowed out one included in the kit, for use with a squonker.

The Templar features a “velocity clamp system” build post, which I guess could be described as a Velocity-Goon build deck hybrid. You have four post holes, like on a Velocity Deck, but instead of four separate screws to secure each lead, you actually have a huge clamp and a single center screw which raises and closes the clamp. It’s a very ingenious system, I’ll give them that, but it is a bit harder to build on than a classic Velocity deck.

The juice well is not the deepest I’ve ever seen, but it’s deep in enough to hold a few millilitres of juice, if you happen to overdo it with the dripping.

Setting Up

If you’ve ever built on a Goon-style deck before, you should have no problem setting up the Augvape Templar RDA. All you have to know is that the design of this velocity clamp system requires you to insert both coils before screwing that large center screw on top of the post, to lock them in place. That means you have to make sure that your coils are aligned just right before tightening down the clamp. Too close tot the center post and they could accidentally make contact with it. Too far, and they could touch the barrel or the stepped top cap. In both cases, you will get a short-circuit, and you don’t want that.

To start building on this deck, you will first have to unscrew that large screw on top of the center post and raise the clamp until you have all four wire slots completely exposed. Then make sure that both coils are inserted into both the positive and negative posts. I prefer to measure the leads of my coils and trim any excess wire before tightening down the clamp, as doing afterwards can be problematic. Inserting the two coils and tightening them down simultaneously, as opposed to one at a time, like on a Velocity build deck, can be tough if you’re a beginner, but once you have some experience with this style of deck, it’ll seem simple to do.

Once you’ve tightened the camp and locked the coils in place, just make sure they are aligned with the airflow slots on the barrel, and make sure to fire them up a few times to check if they light up correctly – from the center outwards, with no hot spots.

I found that the wicking is very straightforward with this RDA. I just bent my cotton leads on the outside of the build deck and clipped them right at the base of it. Then I tucked them into the juice well. If you like to tuck the cotton under the coils and plan on using the Templar with a squonker, you need to make sure that you are not blocking the two small juice holes at the base of the build deck, as that can hinder the flow of e-liquid when you squeeze your squonk bottle.

How It Vapes

To be completely honest, I wasn’t too impressed with the Templar RDA at first. Its stubby body and wide-bore drip-tip seemed a poor combination that made it prone to spit-back, and the holes that made up the two airflow slots looked too small. However, that was only at first glance. After using this atomizer for over a week, I can say that my original assessment was a poor one.

Not only did I never experience any spit-back, but the airflow system was so much better than I expected. Having the option to fine tune the amount of air that enters the atomization chamber to fit your vaping style is a huge pro. I’ve found that depending on what type of coils I’m using, I prefer more or less airflow, and the stepped design of the Templar top cap allows me to make adjustments accordingly.

The low profile of the Augvape Templar means that the coils are very close to your mouth. That means that the vapor reaches your mouth almost instantly, so it’s warm and very flavorful.

In terms of vapor production, I can’t say the Templar is the best RDA I’ve ever used, but it is definitely above average in this regard as well. Obviously, it depends on the coils and power output as well, but what I can say is that this little atomizer is perfectly capable of chugging clouds.

I really don’t have anything negative to report about the Templar. The two silicone o-rings on the base do a good job of insulating it, so you shouldn’t experience any messy leaking, the tolerance on the top cap is just right, meaning you can easily adjust the airflow without having to worry about it accidentally turning in your pocket. The wide bore drip tip means you can easily drip without removing the top cap.

Conclusion

The Augvape Templar is a neat little RDA that should please all but the pickiest of vapers. It may nit be the most innovative vaping device ever created, but it certainly takes some of the best features we’ve seen before and combines them to provide a great vaping experience. The deck may take a bit of getting used to for beginners, but it works just fine, and the stepped airflow system is one of the best I’ve ever used on a rebuildable atomizer.

So if you’re looking for an all-around great RDA that offers above average vapor production and great flavor at an affordable prize, you should definitely consider the Augvape Templar. It will surprise you, in a good way.

SMOK NOVO pod vape review | a beautiful starter kit for nicotine salts

Vapers are asking for more and more pod systems and the SMOK NOVO is one of the most beautiful out there. This gorgeous and ultra-portable vape is very pocket friendly and comes with a powerful 450mAh battery. It activates on draw and it’s compatible with free-base as well as nicotine salts e-liquids. And considering its $30 price tag, this is also one of the highly affordable pod vapes available right now.

PROS:

Beautiful design

Great build quality

Comes with two empty pods

Great battery life

The experience is similar to a Infinix pod system

CONS:

No battery level indicator

No juice level indicator

No needle-tip bottle included with the kit

Prone to spills when refilling

Focus On www.urvapin.com For More Latest Vape News.

Packaging and color options

The SMOK NOVO feels more luxurious than its predecessors and this experience starts with the packaging. You will get it inside a high quality cardboard gift box, with a very modern user manual. There are two empty pods this time and also a very small micro-USB cable.

We appreciate that SMOK finally listened to its customers and released the starter kit with more than just one pod inside the box. Unfortunately they didn’t include the very practical needle-tip refill bottle with found with previous pod systems.

Available colors for this device are black, red, white, rainbow, green, blue, royal blue, and pink – all surrounded by beautiful chrome inserts.

The design and features of this tiny pod vape

After the success of its Infinix vape, SMOK has now released another pod vaporizer. And although it’s more elegant, the NOVO vape offers about the same overall experience. The draw is pretty similar and the throat hit feels as perfect when using 12mg regular e-liquids and 35mg nicotine salts.

This luxurious e-cig measures 88mm x 24.5mm x 14.5mm and weighs no more than 40 grams. It feels very natural in the hand and has a beautiful honeycomb finish with rounded chrome edges. In addition it features a blue LED light on the front as well as a micro-USB slot on the side. There’s no fire button so it will activate automatically each time you inhale.

SMOK NOVO vapeThe Novo e-cig features direct output, which means the wattage will vary between 16W when the battery is full to 11W when the battery is almost depleted. The LED will blink rapidly when the device needs to be recharged, however there’s no battery level indicator. It takes around one full hour to get a full charge. Also considering the 450mAh capacity, this vape is going to offer way more autonomy than your standard “Jewel” e cig.

The NOVO pods

The SMOK NOVO kit includes two refillable pods. These have 2.0ml capacities and a resistance of around 1.2 Ohms. The mouthpiece is integrated in the pod and the draw is pretty restrictive but very smooth. There’s a fill gasket on the side, however the port is not as big as on the previous SMOK pods.

The company should have included the needle-tip bottle from the Rolo Badge. This would have made refills a lot easier and mess-free. With standard gorilla bottles or droppers it’s pretty hard to put e-liquid inside these pods without spilling some of it.

The pods don’t have magnetic connectors and they need to be pressed inside the battery. Here is when you also realize there’s no see-through window or e-liquid indicator with the NOVO vape. You will need to constantly take the pod out in order to check or wait until the cotton feels dry. This is not the most practical approach and we have to say we are a bit disappointed.

Other than that, the pods do a very good job at delivering smooth, flavorful vapor and a very robust throat hit. The experience is one of the best we had and it’s one of the reasons we rated this product so highly.

Performance and final thoughts

The SMOK NOVO pod vape follows the footsteps of its predecessors and offers an incredible experience. It’s easy to use, ultra-portable and comes with two refillable cartridges inside the box. Battery life is more than good and the throat hit is quite impressive even with 20mg nic salts.

We did run into a few cons, but in the end it’s a pretty good product and we definitely recommend it. It has a beautiful finish, it’s well built and it’s incredibly affordable. In addition you can refill the pods for up to 10 times, which makes the starter kit very practical.

SMOK NOVO Pod Starter Kit Review

In-depth Smok Novo Pod Vape Starter Kit Review

Smok has released a number of Pod system vapes recently in an effort to keep up with the latest trend in vaping. So their latest pod vape is the Smok Novo, we take a closer look to see how well it competes against the best pod vapes and whether it’s worth rushing out and getting one!
Smok Novo Pod Design and colors

 

FOCUS ON WWW.AVE40.COM FOR MORE LATEST VAPE NEWS.

Design

Keeping to the traditional small size, the Smok Novo measures in at just a little over 88mm tall, 24.3mm wide and has a depth of just 14.3, so this pod system is small and fits into your pocket well. The rectangular shape though is a little different to other vape pods and with a weight of just 39 grams its overall design is very good.

Available in a number of colors, as you expect from Smok, including; black, red, white, rainbow, pink, royal blue, dark blue, and green, there’s certainly a good choice. Each of the colors has the cobra effect etched into it, which also looks really good.

The main battery body also has a thin shiny aluminum edge and along the side is the USB port which is used to charge the device.

There is also a tiny LED light on the front giving the user an indication of the battery life and when you need to recharge it.

 

Refillable Pods

The Novo PodIt’s nice to see that the Novo comes with 2 refillable pods, so you can use any e-liquid you want, although it is recommended to use nicotine salts with this type of device as it gives a smoother vape at the higher nicotine levels.

Removing the pod from the battery housing you will see on the side the fill hole covered by a silicone plug. The fill hole is a little on the small side, so you may experience a little leakage when filling the device.

The pods hold 2ml of e-liquid, so not enough to last a day or even a few hours for the heavy vapers out there, so you do need to carry around a bottle of juice! The mouthpiece is also worth commenting on and one of the best feeling mouthpieces we’ve tried in comparison to the smaller designs you see on other pods.
Side and back view of the Smok Novo

Performance

There are no settings to be playing around with here, so it is pretty much completely automatic. The flavor is pretty decent considering the atomizer is a standard coil measuring in at about 1.2ohms and not a mesh coils as you see in some of the top sub ohm tanks.

The cloud production is also pretty good, producing a pretty thick cloud. Trying the Novo with direct lung inhales does have some resistance, due to the higher resistance of the coil, but it is possible. It’s best used as a mouth to lung inhale, which most ex-smokers will love and be comfortable with.

Comparing to the Smok Infinix which received some great reviews from vapers, the airflow is about the same although the resistance of the coils on the Infinix was slightly higher at around 1.4 ohms. The flavor is pretty close, but for a mouth to lung vaper, we believe the Infinix had a slightly better draw and overall better vape.

 

To Conclude

The Smok Novo pod vape system is a good looking and small device with a pretty decent 450mAh internal battery. The flavor from the vape is pretty average in comparison to the best e cig products out there, so for its size, it does well. The vape cloud is also pretty impressive.

Overall it’s a decent pod system, perfect for carrying around with you when out and about, if your an experienced vaper, use to sub-ohm vaping, then the Novo might be a little underwhelming. If you’re new to vaping and looking for a simple to use vape to quit smoking then this might be right on target.
