Sigelei T4 Resin Sub Ohm Tank – total recycling

Today I will start your day not with good news. No, everything is good – just somehow gray and boring. Although elected such news may please. By elected, I mean not those who were chosen by a special council of planet Earth or appointed by fate to save our galaxy from invasion by foreign invaders. But very different – simple fans of the resin material that has gained popularity.

For you, the company Sigelei tried from the heart. They thought, they thought – where else to push this multicolored plastic, and here at one of the brainstorming, one of the developers exclaimed – idea! So, it was decided to replace the usual glass of the tank with “glass” (I will still call it that way) from Resign.

And they got the following – Sigelei T4 Resin Sub Ohm Tank . “Oil Painting”.

It turned out just some kind of a fairy tale))) I hope you will take my sarcasm with humor, no offense to the fans of the sigil.

Design – well, that design – you can see everything. If you do not take into account the full “recycling” of the device, then our hero is not particularly different even from his fellows on the shelf, not to mention the proposals of competitors. In form, we have a standard case, except that a drip type with a decent exhaust pipe rises above it. Appearance to judge does not make sense, because he is an amateur – here or yes or no. I have a distinct no.

Refueling tank top. Drip type removable. The capacity is frankly small, despite the impressive height and diameter. Replaceable evaporators that feed our “plastic predator” are the same. We have already seen them, we know them, and some even probably tried.

The evaporators are blown from below, at the base of the tank there is a turning ring with notches for adjusting the air supply.

Sigelei DP tank – Overview

Known to every self-respecting vaper manufacturer Sigelei, released another unattended tank. Rather, it is possible to make it serviced, but for this it is necessary to separately purchase an RBA base for one helix, By the way, visually and constructively, it resembles a base from kanger for a sub mini tank.

So, the new Sigelei DP tank , another of many …

Design, here is what to say. Everything usually, in the best traditions, no one wants to bother, naturally. There are probably hundreds of such tanks. Here, as they say, someone will sink into the soul, although whom I cheat, well, to whom can such a thing sink into the soul. Such a “piece”, if only in a whale, is sold, or by ardent fans of “gray work”. I do not want to offend anyone, just … it comes out so)))

So, the drip-tip, as you most likely thought incorrectly, it is not the 810th, but the 510th – this is such a turn, just wide at the end. It is made of a dolrin, is held due to one oring installed in it.

We get down to the top cap. It is metallic and is fixed with a threaded joint, the thread is not “long”. The producer did not take any risks, why …

So I’ll post a photo for you, and you yourself consider it, maybe you can see something. If anything, all claims to the manufacturer, but from me to them, as usual, hello.

Under the top cap is one hole for refueling. The rim rises, both around the mine, and along the “perimeter” – there should be no straits.

Capacity in 3.8 ml is a decent indicator, not for the sake of compactness is understandable.

Now for the evaporators. Replaceable evaporators SM2 for one helix, SM4 for two helix, SM6 for three helix are suitable. By the resistance of each, I will not orient you. Well, you understand someone hello …

The holes for the air intake are not the biggest, apparently, together with the 510th driptyp the manufacturer is trying to organize tight traction. Airflow, who did not guess – the bottom. Adjusting the air supply is a rotating ring, of course, without scratches. Upstairs there wasn’t, why would we do it downstairs then – is it logical? Of course … And then we’ll ruin the design with its smelly functionality …

IJOY Captain Sub Ohm Tank Review | Clouds and Flavor

Intro – catchy title

The Captain is a new sub ohm tank from IJOY. This 25 mm offering features threadless coilheads that can be easily inserted and switched out. At present two coil types are available and one of each is included in the kit to get you started. The Captain comes with a wide bore 810 Delrin drip tip as well as a 510 drip tip adapter. The vape tank is available in three capacities – 4 mL as standard, an extended 6 mL, and the obligatory 2 mL for TPD-compliant EU customers.

Let’s check out the Captain and see how this sub ohm tank performs..

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

Getting started

iJoy Captain sub ohm tank

Straight out of the box, the tank is straightforward and easy to use. It breaks down easily into its separate parts for cleaning, and the threading feels well engineered and smooth throughout. The tank came clean out of the box, without any residual traces of machining oil.

You get two different coils with the kit: the CA2, a 0.3 ohm coil, and the CA8, a higher-wattage octuple coil performer at 0.15 ohm. The CA2 dual coil uses a kanthal Clapton and two stainless steel wires and is rated for performance between 60 – 80 W. The CA8 coil consists of four dual coils and is rated up to 100 W. The usual extras are also here – replacement glass tank, o-rings, a 510 drip tip adapter, and a colorful vape band.

There’s more than enough space to fill the tank from the top. The airflow control ring is buttery smooth and rotates the full 360° of the tank. The innovation of using threadless coils makes changing them out incredibly easy. They fit snug into the tank chassis snugly, but there’s still enough grip to remove them without yanking.

The Captain needs little more than a few priming drops of e-liquid to the coil, filling the tank, and dialing in the preferred wattage to start vaping.

Ergonomics and form

iJoy Captain sub ohm tank

The Captain sub ohm will fit on any box mod with a 25 mm base without any overhang. Its most striking features are the chunky airflow control ring and the recessed heat reduction chassis. These features make the tank look solid and substantial.

Our 4 mL sample came with the stainless steel finish. It looks great on the Voopoo Drag mod(with minor overhang), but might look comical on a narrower or smaller box mod.

How it performs

iJoy Captain sub ohm tank

Although the vapor intensity will vary depending on your VG/PG ratio, the Captain sub ohm tank is on the cloudy side. Vapor production matches the strength of the draw and the intensity of the flavor you experience with this tank.

Probably my favorite feature of the Captain sub ohm tank is the quality of the draw. Vapor on the intake is rich, dense and not too hot. It’s a direct lung hit without being aggressive. The strength of the draw is the same regardless of the wattage. What changes is the intensity of flavor.

And as flavor goes, it is above-par on the Captain. I’ve been vaping it with C Tobacco, a 70/30 VG/PG e-liquid from Master Blends, that we got as part of Zamplebox’s June menu. The Captain captures the dark, roasted notes of the Turkish tobacco admirably, while also hitting the mixture of bitter and slightly sweet in the juice. I’m vaping it nic-free, and still enjoying it.

Performance has been solid and reliable and the coils have needed very little break-in time. I’ve had no issues with dry hits, spitback or leaking so far.

All in all, I’m very happy with the Captain sub ohm tank. There’s not much to dislike here. So little, in fact, that the next section will be a short one…

Minor irks

iJoy Captain sub ohm tank

One of the selling points of IJOY’s new sub ohm tank is that the CA coilheads are more suitable to wick high VG e-liquid. While C Tobacco is only a 70% VG blend, both the CA2 and CA8 coils wick it easily. However, I have noticed a slightly dry note coming on as the tank starts to empty. I’m not hitting the tank when empty – just where the chimney opens up to wick the coil.

Although the AFC is completely adjustable, closing it off doesn’t have much of an impact on flavor, in my opinion. While the temperature of the vape does increase, the intensity of the draw remains the same.

Finally, the groove separating the AFC from the glass tank. This is supposed to reduce heat distribution throughout the sub ohm tank. If you chain vape the Captain, it will get hot throughout. However, the 810 drip tip extends over 11 mm from the tank and is fairly thick, so you won’t notice it on your lips.

Likes

  • Solid build quality
  • Strong on flavor
  • Consistent and dense draw
  • Threadless coils are easy to insert and change out
  • Gold plating in all the right places for better conductivity
  • 510 drip tip adapter

Dislikes

  • Only two coil types available (at present)
  • AFC doesn’t affect vape quality (subjective)

Verdict

The Captain sub ohm tank from IJOY offers a very decent entry point for vapers who want to sub ohm. There’s plenty to like here, from the robust stainless steel construction down to the threadless coilheads. The different capacity options (2/4/6 mL) is also a nice touch. I’d like to see IJOY expand the range of coils – since the draw is very rich and flavor has been on point so far. If you like to vape at over 100 watts, this might not be the tank for you. But for anyone looking for a new sub ohm tank with great flavor and decent vapor to boot, I’d recommend the Captain.

WOTOFO BRAVO RTA REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

In the past, I have received a lot of Wotofo products. While the quality of the products was always pretty good, it was never really exceptional. First thing you notice when you open up the box of the Bravo is the fact that Wotofo seems to have upped their machining quality a bit. This is definitely one of the better-made Wotofo tanks that I have received. It’s apparent as soon as you put the RTA in your hand.

The Bravo does come in typical Wotofo packaging. We have a black and green box with a slide-out sleeve. Slide the sleeve off the box and on the right side is where the tank is located. On the left side of the foam insert, there are two spare glasses. One is a larger capacity bubble glass and the other is a replacement straight glass. There is also a Delrin 510 drip tip adapter.

Lift the foam insert and underneath, you will find an instruction manual, a card for a t-shirt giveaway, a black Phillips head screwdriver, and Wotofo’s famous comp wire bags. I don’t know how many comp wire bags Wotofo has bought, but it must be in the millions because this has basically become an industry joke already. Every spare part, every piece of cotton, every o’ring, and every coil, somehow winds up in a Wotofo comp wire bag.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • Bravo RTA
  • 810 resin drip tip
  • 1 bubble glass
  • two regular glass sections

Wotofo Bravo RTA Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

The Bravo comes with a rubber insert inside the glass that makes it TPD compliant. The first thing you want to do is rip that thing out and throw it to the side. After that, you are definitely going to want to take off the straight glass and install the bubble glass that comes with the tank. I love all of these bubble glass options that have been coming out lately. It lets you expand the capacity without affecting the flavor because your mouth is not moving any further away from the coil. It’s a great idea and I hope a lot more manufacturers start using it.

Wotofo Bravo RTA Review

The Bravo comes with an absolutely beautiful resin drip tip. The drip tips included with all of the different color tanks do match the tanks pretty well. It is a Goon or 510 compatible DT. I have tried some of my aftermarket drip tips and they do fit but some of them are a little bit on the loose side. The stock drip tip that comes with the Bravo does fit very nicely with no movement. The reason aftermarket Goon drip tips may fit a little loosely is because there is a step down around the DT opening. If one of your Goon drip tips is wider than the circumference of the step down, then you may not be able to push that aftermarket drip tip in all the way. It’s not a big deal but to be honest, I would have rather have seen the opening totally flat and level with the rest of the top cap. There is also a 510 drip tip adapter included in the package for those of you that like to run your traditional 510 drip tips.

The top cap on the Bravo is nice and thick. It has some absolutely beautiful knurling around the whole circumference of the top cap. This knurling is just fantastic because it really lets you get a good grip on the top cap in order to remove it. The threading on the interior of the top cap is buttery smooth and it really does not take a lot in order to secure the top cap down. Basically, a half a turn and the top cap is secure. So, even though there is not a lot of threading on the interior, the threading that is there, is extremely smooth, well machined, and it works very well.

Wotofo Bravo RTA Review

The fill port cap, the chimney, and the barrel are all one piece. The fill port portion of the tank is recessed and there are two half circle shaped fill ports on either side of the cap. These fill ports are pretty massive and you should have no problem using any type of bottle on the market today in order to fill this tank. Even Bullnose juice bottles are not a problem. Below the fill ports, there is an o’ring that does a great job of securing the glass section to the tank.

The chimney on the Bravo is on the wide side and it is extremely short. It drops into a small barrel that has a conically shaped interior with a stepped up design towards the chimney. On the exterior of the barrel, there is some Bravo branding. Below the Bravo branding, there is some knurling on the bottom of the barrel. The barrel screws on to the base of the deck with some really smooth threading.

The glass section is held in place with the tension that is created between the fill port cap portion and the base. In your package, you will get 3 glass sections. If you run the straight glass with that rubber thing installed, the Bravo is TPD compliant and will only hold 2 mls of liquid. If you take the rubber thing out and just run the straight glass, you will be able to get 4 mls in the tank. If you take the straight glass off and install the bubble tank, then you will be able to get 6 ml’s into the tank. I prefer the bubble glass over them all, but it is really nice to have all those choices.

Wotofo Bravo RTA Review

The base of the Bravo has the same exact knurling on the AFC that the top cap has. It also does a great job of giving you a good grip and the AFC is extremely easy to adjust while the tank is on a mod. The knurling on it is a big reason for that. Right above the knurling, there is an o’ring that the glass attaches to. The airflow slots are cyclops style and huge, however, they are extremely deceptive. They actually look a lot bigger than they really are. The air slots do not go all the way through the bottom of the base like a lot of RTA’s do. Instead, they are closed off in the middle and the airflow comes from the top interior of the Cyclops airflow slot. The airflow on it is good but it’s not as loose as the appearance of it would make you believe.

Wotofo Bravo RTA Review

On the bottom of the base, there is some Bravo and Wotofo branding. There is also a gold plated 510 pin that is surrounded by an insulator ring. The threading around the 510 is actually very smooth and the 510 does protrude quite a bit. The base of the Bravo measures 25 mm in diameter and it is 48.9 mm high. It has sat flush on every mod I have used it on so far.

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

THE DECK:

The deck is where the Bravo differentiates itself from a lot of RTA’s. Not in a big way but in a bunch subtle ways. It is an upside down clamp system that is controlled by two deck screws per clamp. Each inner deck screw on each post goes directly into the post closest to the center. The outer deck screws just go straight through the clamp. So, you have to be careful when you are unscrewing this deck, especially with the outer deck screws. Make sure you don’t unscrew them so much, that the clamp actually comes off the screw. The deck screws are Phillips head and of good quality. This is a two-post, one-terminal-per-post design.

Wotofo Bravo RTA Review

The base of the deck is also very interesting. It is a GTA style deck that is lifted up off the bottom of the base just a little bit. It is enough to make it what I would consider a GTA style deck. It uses a gravity feed system that feeds your wicks from underneath the deck platform. On the deck platform, there are nicely sized, circular, wicking ports. In between both wicking ports is where you will find your air flow slot. The airflow slot is oval in shape but it is also beveled downward towards the center of the deck. It kind of makes sure that the airflow is up and underneath your coil. The slot is grabbing all the flavor from the bottom of the coil and you may even get some of the vapor from the lower side of the coil.

Wotofo Bravo RTA Review

It’s an interesting deck and I really haven’t seen anything else like it before. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not groundbreaking or anything but it has a lot of little nuances that I have seen on other decks before, but not all of them combined on one atomizer. You can tell just by looking at the deck that a lot of time and thought went into it.

BUILDING AND WICKING:

Building on the Bravo is not exactly for a beginner but at the same time, it’s not too complicated either. I say it’s not a beginner deck because you do have to place your coils in there all at one time and then tighten the clamps system down. This is because each post only has one terminal. When you see a deck like this, you have a couple of choices that you can make. You can pre-cut your leads and then install your coils and tighten them down. You can also slap your coils in there, tighten them down, and then move them around a little bit in order to get a clear shot at clipping your leads. I tend to just put my coils in there and worry about clipping the leads after everything is tightened down. That is exactly what I did with the Bravo tank and I had no issues at all.

One side note about clamping your leads, you have to turn each of the four screws a little at a time. That is because you have two screws per clamp. If you turn each screw fully closed, one at a time, the clamp will close uneven and you will have a tough time closing the second deck screw. Best thing to do is take your time and close all four deck screws a little at a time.

Because of the size of the terminals, you can really get some beefy flat wire builds in there. In fact, the Bravo actually excels with those kinds of coils. I have had this tank for a few weeks now and I have tried many different coils, from simple Claptons all the way up to massive 3.5 mm ID Juggernaut coils. I like to run 3mm ID Framed Aliens in this tank. They seem to give me the best clouds and flavor.

Once your coils are in there and tightened down, you want to move them around a little bit and start clipping the ends of your lead. After you have your leads cut, you want to take your coiling rod and ensure proper placement of the coil. My recommendation is you put the coil right in front of that bottom airflow as close to it as you can without actually shorting. This will ensure that you get maximum flavor off of the Bravo RTA. After you have the proper coil placement, if you are running contact coils, you will want to pulse your coils lightly and get out all of the hot spots.

After you have the coil placement down and exactly where you want it, it is time to wick the Bravo. Simply pull your cotton through the center of the coil and cut it right next to the o’ring that goes around the base. This will give you the perfect wick length for this RTA. After the cotton is cut, you simply tuck it into the wicking area very gently. Take care not to stuff the cotton in there. You want the cotton to fit snug but not too tightly. There has to be enough room there for your juice to flow through the wick. You do not want to choke off your wick. After the coil is wicked, you simply juice your cotton up and reassemble the tank. Fill the tank up after it is reassembled and you are ready to vape.

HOW DOES IT VAPE?

The airflow on the Bravo is very smooth and it does have that swooshy type of feel but at the same time, it is a little bit on the noisy side. It’s not noisy enough to make you stop using the RTA but it does have that slight Darth Vader type of sound to it. The air flow is what I would call a slightly restrictive type of airflow that is definitely geared more towards flavor while still maximizing cloud production. It’s actually a good compromise between a loose cloud chucking sort of airflow and a slightly restrictive flavor sort of airflow. Personally, it’s right up my alley and I really do enjoy it.

Because of the way this tank is made, I like running my builds just under .2 ohms. I find that I get the best vape when I run those types of coils in the Bravo. Right now, I have some 3 mm ID SS Framed Aliens in there ohming out at .18 ohms and I am at 90 watts on my Squid Industries Double Barrel. The vape I get off of this build is just beautiful. It is extremely cloudy and extremely flavorful. The flavor and the clouds definitely make up for the slightly noisy airflow. This Bravo can chuck clouds with some of the best RTA’s on the market and the flavor is definitely on point.

While most of the times I do run this RTA with the airflow wide open, I have found that if you cut it down to below 50%, the flavor definitely intensifies. I have also run this RTA with the AFC open just a sliver and the flavor definitely gets better. The clouds might suffer a little but if you’re a flavor chaser, you’re definitely going to want to cut the air flow down on this tank. If you’re a cloud chaser and you like really good flavor, then just leave the thing wide open.

WHAT WOULD HAVE MADE IT BETTER:

  • Quieter Airflow

Like I said before, it’s not a big deal. This airflow is only slightly noisy but it is noisy enough for me to make a note of it. It’s definitely not noisy enough to be a deal breaker. Truth be told, there’s not a lot wrong with this tank, so I really had to nitpick in this section.

CONCLUSION:

This tank is what I would call a great compromise between clouds and flavor. I’m the type of vaper that likes to be at anywhere between 60 and 100 watts. My sweet spot is probably right around 85 watts. I’m really not comfortable going above 100 watts because I just don’t enjoy it up there. With this type of tank, I can put a build in there that I truly enjoy at the wattages that I really enjoy.

I consider myself one of those middle-of-the-road vapers. I’m no tootle puffer but at the same time, I’m not a high wattage cloud chucker. For me, this tank just checked off all the boxes that I needed it to check off. I get great cloud production and I get great flavor with that cloud production. If I want intensified flavor, all I have to do is shut down the airflow to just below 50%. Yeah, my clouds may not be massive but the flavor will definitely be better.

This is definitely one of Wotofo’s better efforts in a long time. They’ve been coming out with some good tanks but they’ve all been kind of meh, nothing really special. Yeah, I know people are going to say, ‘but Deuces what about the SMM?’ Yeah, that tank was ok but in my opinion, it was kind of hyped up. This tank is legit, no hype, it just performs. This one is definitely machined a lot better and you can tell a ton of thought went into the design of this particular tank. This is a step up for Wotofo. It’s a performer and it is built extremely well.

HorizonTech Arco II Sub-Ohm Tank Review

Running a vape site makes it difficult to get attached to specific devices. However, the original Horizon Arco tank was a standout performer that continues to stay in my rotation, thanks to its fantastic flavor from a unique flax paper coil structure. Hot on its heels comes the HorizonTech Arco II sub-ohm tank, which promises a continuation of everything we loved about the first, alongside a few new design choices to improve the experience. Will these changes be enough to justify the quick turnaround for version two? Let’s see if the Arco II brings the goods.

First impressions of the HorizonTech Arco II Tank

Right when you open the box, the Arco II jumps out at you. My stainless and red/orangemodel was nicely color-matched right out of the box, with the rest of the contents – spare glass, two coils, extra o-rings and gaskets, spare drip-tip  – are well laid-out in the compact packaging. No space is wasted, and no corners were cut. The Arco II is a great little package, all around.

Returning from the original Arco is the vacuum-plated glass section, which is purported to be more durable than standard glass. One thing I noticed with the original is how the inside of the tank section never fogged or muddied with e-liquid droplets, and I’m happy to report the same is true of the Arco II.Removing the tank from the box, the 5mL Arco IIjust seems really well-built. It’s not the most unique design, but then again, how much innovation is needed for a tank’s appearance? What’s more important is the build quality, and HorizonTech has delivered in a big way.

In turn, the stainless steel body features flawless threading and precise knurling, with no muscle needed to separate the sections. When cleaning, each piece comes apart and reassembles with ease, and no leaking or condensation occurs near airflow slots or the base. Again, just rock-solid design.

The color-matched Delrin drip-tip is a highlight of the Arco II tank, as it is extremely comfortable, and stays cool on the lips, even at higher wattages. For those who aren’t happy with this option, the Arco II also comes with a well-fit 510 adapter.

Finally, the easy-to-use top cap comes off with a simple twist, but stays snug, even in pockets. Opening the cap reveals two tremendous fill ports, which allow for all types of droppers and bottles to fill without odd pooling or overflow.

The HorizonTech Arco II Coils

As you may remember, the Arco brand is centered on the “flax paper liquid guiding system.” While that might be a bit of marketing jargon, in reality, the Arco T6 coil’straditional cotton, flax cotton and flax paper combination does a tremendous job absorbing juice and directing it to the coils. This resulted in huge flavor and a complete lack of dry hits or flat flavor.
Within a minute of juicing and priming the included T6 triple-headed steel coils, my office was filled with thick clouds of tasty vapor. Using a very nuanced, layered e-liquid, I noticed flavor profiles that would have been muted in lesser devices.As it was with the original Arco, these coils are extremely thirsty. Where a standard multiple-coil head can absorb 1-2 mL to prime, the Arco coils were far more ravenous when wetting them. The upside to this is a consistently great hit from the very start, with little, if any, break-in time. I experienced just a handful of mediocre draws before the Arco II began to sing some very high notes.

Though the T6 coils were thirsty when initially filling the Arco II tank, they were frugal when vaping. No one will mistake the tank for having MTL-level consumption, but when compared to similar high-wattage, sub-ohm tanks, the Arco II proved to be more conservative than most, without sacrificing flavor or vapor production.

One concern I have is about the durability and longevity of the new T-series coils. While the original Arco coils were extremely durable, offering strong flavor and vapor production for weeks, I’m noticing a drop in both areas after just a few days of moderate use. When opening the tank to investigate, I noticed slight burning and darkening around the flax inserts – the exact thing these coils were designed to avoid.

In comparison, the original Arco A-series coils – of which I’ve bought my share – rarely, if ever scorched until they hit the bitter ends of their lifespans. Even under steady high-wattage use, those coils seemed to stay “clean” to the naked eye for weeks. However, these were a little weathered after just two days. Admittedly, it was heavy use, but this was still surprising.

That said, HorizonTech did the right thing and made the original Arco (A4 and A6) and Arco II (T6) coils compatible for either device, allowing each set of customers to make their own determinations. In a day and age when seemingly every device has a proprietary coil design, this was a refreshing gesture – one that only strengthens HorizonTech’s belief in this technology, and the Arco brand.

Vaping the HorizonTech Arco II Tank

As we’ve discussed here, the Arco II offers a flavorful, dense vape, which should enhance any e-liquid you throw its way. Using a variety of high-VG juices, the Arco II coils not only brought out deep flavors, but also managed to change gears very quickly when switching juices. Within just a few puffs, new liquids worked their way through the cotton guiding system to the coils, allowing minimal “cross-pollination” of flavors.

Using the Arco II on a Lost Vape Paranormal DNA166 mod at 80-90 watts (the recommended range for the T6 coils) I found the tank stayed cool to the touch. Even when I pushed the coils higher than the listed wattage range, the tank never became uncomfortable, especially on the Delrin drip tip.

For the record, we do NOT recommend pushing the Arco coils – or any coils, for that matter – beyond their listed capabilities. We do so for the sake of testing, not to demonstrate a recommended practice.

To test how well the tank accommodates the original Arco coils, I popped in a brand new A4 coil, primed it, and was happy to see how well it seated in the Arco II base. There were no threading or tightening issues, and everything sat flush, with no leaking. I refilled the tank, and experienced equally wonderful flavor and vapor from this coil, as if it was a native match to the tank.

Airflow control on the Arco II is a standard dual-slot, bottom AFC design which is butter-smooth, and easy to control, while snug enough to stay put during use, or in a pocket (though you should close off those AFC rings in pockets, lest you receive a slight, but embarrassingly located damp spot on the front of your jeans).

In my original Arco tank review, I expressed a desire to have an RBA section included, along with some flax cotton to help users create their own experience with these new materials. However, after vaping these fantastic coils, and taking a closer look at how intricate the construction is within the chamber, I no longer think it’s necessary.

Unlike so many companies that tout “technology” within their coils, the Arco and Arco II coils are true systems, with unique, innovative design that moves e-liquid to the coils efficiently. An RBA would be welcome, though I now believe the Arco experience is best enjoyed as HorizonTech intended.

Wrapping up…

What can I say that hasn’t already been said? Though there is a mild concern about the durability of the new Arco II T-series coils (and we WILL continue to monitor this over the next few weeks) the overall vape quality of the tank and coil system is too good to ignore. Add in seamless compatibility with the proven Arco A-series coils, and you have a tank with an established ecosystem, and room to grow.

Hellvape ReBirth RDA

Review: Herakles Sub-Ohm by Sense

When using sub-ohm devices please be as careful as possible, not all sub-ohm levels are safe with every device. Check to ensure that your device is capable of handling it. This review is of a product bought and paid for by me, not a product received in exchange of a review.

herakles

Ok so like most of you i’ve followed the sub-ohm craze and like some of you I tend to favor RDA’s. I had tried a few of the sub-ohm tanks on the market but they just couldn’t keep up with my chain vaping and heavy usage. I also could not find an actual RDA replacement within those products on the market. Sure I could vape on them but the experience and flavor just wasn’t the same, that’s not to say they weren’t good they just didn’t give me a 1:1 ratio of experience that would replace rda’s for me entirely. Part of the problem was with dry hits, reduced flavor, and just going through coil heads at an alarming rate. So when I saw the Herakles being touted so heavily I started to do some research and that research told me buy one and review it.

First things first the device comes in a basic box like other tanks minus and instruction book. I guess Sense is under the impression everyone who buys one already knows how to use one. Aside from that it’s your basic tank, replacement glass and two coils (.2 ohm and .6 ohm). The .2 ohm is capable of handling wattage as high as 50 watts, while the .6 ohm coil can handle up to 75 (There is some debate on this because people have claimed to run them up to 100 watts). The most noticeable things about the Herakles is that it uses coils with huge wicking holes, four of them. By comparison the Kangertech subtank coils only have two holes. By this stretch the coils are significantly better on the Herakles than on the subtank, internally the coils are vertical and the cotton soaks faster. I mean amazingly faster, no sooner do you take a rip than you’ll start seeing bubbles of the juice being sucked into the cotton. I all day vape on an eliquid that’s around 91% vg so it’s thick, most coil heads have issues keeping up with it so it’s one of the particular reasons I like RDA’s. The air flow has a heat sink sort of layer I guess to disperse heat quicker or to draw it away from the tank and coil head itself. The airflow controls can be iffy, if you like a tight draw you won’t really find one if that’s your thing. Personally I enjoy airy draws at high wattage so it works well for me.

The base of the chimney leaves a little to be desired, it is so wide there is very little space between it and the walls of the fill glass. You may struggle at first filling the tank to it’s listed 3ml capacity, I don’t actually think it holds 3ml I think it holds slightly less. You can wedge the tip of your glass dropper at an angle and fill it slowly and cautiously. Another pet peeve is having to hold the glass in place to the cap when filling. Depending on whether there is enough suction near the cap it may hold on it’s own but sometimes it doesn’t. Unscrewing the base is pretty simple but also requires you hold the glass and cap in place.

So now with the tank filled and the .2 ohm coil head installed, primed, and given time to soak more let’s give this thing a go. I started out at 30 watts and increased it by 5 watts every 3rd rip. At 50 watts with 91% vg ejuice this thing handles it heavenly, the flavor is actually better to me than on my RDA. The cloud just as good as in most RDA’s as well, the biggest factor being not a single dry hit. Not one!! One thing I did notice is that I went through 3ml in the fastest time ever, I don’t think i’ve dripped 3ml in under thirty minutes. Could be the fact that I could not put the tank down for long at all. Decided instead of refilling to switch to the .6 ohm coil head and see how more surface area would perform, also left my mod at 50 watts and worked on increasing it from there. Juice consumption was a little less than on .2 ohms at 50 watts but the flavor was absolutely incredible, by comparison it took me getting to 75 watts at .6 ohms to finally get a really warm vape and the same level of cloud production but the flavor only got better as I increased wattage.

Scores: Design 7 (improve the way of filling the tank), Flavor 10 (Easily challenges any RDA), Usage 7 (the juice capacity means you have to carry juice with you, but you trade that off in order to get this level of flavor), Portability 10 (it’s tiny and doesn’t stick out like a sore thumb), Re-buy factor: 8 (for $25 it is definitely a good buy but the coils are almost as expensive)

ASVAPE COBRA SUB-OHM TANK REVIEW

Indepth Asvape Cobra Tank Review

Asvape has now introduced a new 3.8ml Sub-ohm tank to the market, but is this market already overcrowded or do Asvape really deserve their spot in the competitive market. The new Cobra tank is their attempt to not just compete but to excel and become one of the top 5 sub ohm tanks, so let’s take a close look at this tank to see how good it really is.
design of the Asvape Cobra

Design

Sporting a traditional sub-ohm tank look, the Cobra really doesn’t stand out that much, measuring in at 24mm(D)x42.5mm(L) it’s a bit on the small side, especially considering it holds a rather impressive 3.8ml of juice.

It is using the usual 510 thread, so you will be able to use this with pretty much all the best vape mods around, which you would expect and it also uses a Pyrex glass and food grade stainless steel to complete the design.

Apart from the slightly smaller mouthpiece, there’s really nothing to differentiate this from any other tank on the market, which might be a good thing, but if you’re a little more flamboyant and want to stand out from the crowd, then this tank is not for you. That said, if you like the traditional look, then read on!
Side and bottom view of the Cobra tank

Features

The Asvape Cobra tank includes two 0.5-ohm Ni80 (Nichrome) coil heads with the kit. These coils have been rated to be used at around 30-45Watts, so this tank will work well on pretty much any mod, even the single battery, slightly less powerful mods.

The 3.8ml tank is utilizing the top fill functionality, again this is seen in pretty much all tanks these days, and all the best electronic cigarettes, you simply unscrew the top piece to fill up your juice.  Luckily they incorporated 2 holes to allow the air to escape whilst filling and it doesn’t matter which hole you use.
The coils in the Cobra

The Coils

Here’s where Asvape have changed things a little and some might say the most important area, the coils. The first inspection of the Cobra coils shows that instead of 4 large wicking holes, Asvape has used hundreds of small holes to saturate the cotton evenly.

It’s been designed this way to incorporate all the juice concentrations all the way up to 80/20 VG/PG, so if your using juice on the higher VG levels, then these coils can cope.

Although the kit comes with 2 x 0.5-ohm Ni80 coils, there are some 0.2 SS316L (stainless steel) coils available to which you will have to buy separately and usually come in packs of 5.

 

Performance

The Asvape Cobra Sub-Ohm Tank has been built with flavor in mind, and to be perfectly honest we were super impressed with the flavor and clouds produced, we weren’t really expecting it and the flavor came through pretty much straight away. Usually, after priming, new coils take a little time to settle in, but the Cobra coils were pretty much instant.

Top view and gold version of the Cobra TankVaping the 0.5-ohm coils at around 40W with a 70/30 Pg/VG juice creates a really good vape and in our opinion actually performs a little better than the Smok Prince tank, which is one of the best tanks on the market. Super happy with the performance of this tank, it’s definitely one to consider.

 

To Conclude

Initially, you might think that the Asvape Cobra Sub-Ohm tank is just your regular tank released on the market, but this little tank performs so well that we can only congratulate Asvape on doing a great job.

Not sure if it’s the new design of the coils that produce the deep flavor, but you can expect the vape to be good. Granted, it’s not going to compete on flavor against the RDA’s or RTA’s but it’s pretty close. The only downside is the relatively small capacity at 3.8ml, which doesn’t last long, but if this is part of the design to reduce the whole size and create a better flavor, then we are happy with that.

Overall a great sub-ohm tank that not only competes with the top tanks on the market but beats them in flavor!

Anglo RDA by Hellvape – a hint of taste drip from the creators of the dead rabbit

About a month ago, I met a mention of a new drip from Hellvape . The novelty aroused my interest, especially against the background of how successful Dead Rabbit enjoyed . The search for additional information did not give any particular result. Why? Yes, simply because the Chinese have decided to conduct a whole company to warm up their interest in their new product. And now, finally, I’m ready to tell you about Anglo RDA . Let’s see what the Chinese have cooked there.

I can tell you right away that the most interesting part of this drip is hidden “under the hood”. Of course, I understand that the taste and color of all markers are different, but the new product looks very bad. As far as I know, Anglo is positionedAs a new flagship, making the rip so boring is not a good decision. It looks like a starper, and if I didn’t know what was “inside”, I would simply pass by. Something tells me that the rip would have made a lot more noise if the designers chose the same format that Dead Rabbit had . Or maybe I just do not understand anything in the design of the Chinese: D

Dimensions :

Height – 38 mm.
Diameter – 24 mm.
Weight – 45 g.
Anglo RDA by Hellvape - a hint of taste drip from the creators of the dead rabbit
As I noted above, I liked the technical component of the dripka. Hellvape never hesitated to surprise their customers, and Anglo was no exception. Here it is worth noting that the drip was created in collaboration with the blogger dukunvape. So, it may turn out that the task of the Chinese here was to provide production capacity.
Anglo RDA by Hellvape - a hint of taste drip from the creators of the dead rabbitAnglo RDA by Hellvape - a hint of taste drip from the creators of the dead rabbit
After removing the top cap, the user will see two racks with one fixing screw in each. It’s very simple – you unscrew the screw, install the legs on the right site and fix. Dripka allows you to install two spirals, but I would prefer one fat spiral here. Somehow this option is more logical. Serviceability in the case of the two coils in question, but can engineers know that – what we do not know: D To be honest, there is a suspicion that some – some extent in creating this dripki guys inspired? Pharaoh’s . The principle of operation is similar, but Anglo seems to me much more thoughtful.
Anglo RDA by Hellvape - a hint of taste drip from the creators of the dead rabbitAnglo RDA by Hellvape - a hint of taste drip from the creators of the dead rabbit
The second point that attracts attention is the airflow system. These sets of holes look impressive, but there are questions to work. At the same time, only two openings are taken from the air intake. Air flow occurs through the channels in the racks. How this is enough for the maintenance of large spirals – I do not understand. Dripka is positioned as a taste, and I suggest simply believing the manufacturer. Again, can we not know something?

OBS Engine 2 RTA Review

Introduction – OBS Engine 2 RTA

The OBS Engine 2 is from a long standing brand who founded their business in China in 2014.obs engine 2 stock s and bOBS had great success with their original Engine RTA 25mm (dual coil) and the rest of the rebuild-able series, the Engine Mini RTA 23mm (dual coil) and Engine Nano RTA25mm (single coil). So if one wants to be pedantic, we could call the Engine 2 RTA the 4th generation of this series of RTA tanks. OBS did bring out a couple of stock coil tanks under the Engine title, the Sub 25mm and Sub Mini 23mm.

My expectations are high for the Engine 2, will the flavour and build quality live up to what we have come to expect from OBS? Let put it under the spotlight and find out…..OBS Engine 2 Kit

This RTA was sent to us for the purpose of this review. As always my views are my own.

Design and Build Quality

The OBS Engine 2 RTA comes in a box with a paper over sleeve and a draw effect box, opening the box I was hit with sheer quality, this is a beautiful looking tank, included is a box of spares.OBS Engine 2 spares pic

The tank is made of 304 food grade stainless steel, Pyrex glass, and a patterned Delrin mouth piece.OBS Engine 2 up close

The design and build quality of the product I would say are of the highest standard! The style of the tank is very much in keeping with the other tanks in the series.OBS Engine 2 stock Assembly

The OBS Engine 2 RTA breaks down into 4 components for easy cleaning.OBS Engine 2 4 parts

Base/ Build Deck

Looking at the build deck it is clear that this the major area of change compared to say the Engine Nano that I reviewed last year.

Starting with the bottom of the base, you can see all the normal information is included; the 510 pin is press fit which means you can’t adjust the 510 pin.OBS Engine 2 deck info

The base measures 25mm ballooning to 26mm where the glass sits. The build deck has 2 posts that you have to sort of hang your coils between! The positive post sits on a peek insulator.

The coils are pinched by 4 stainless steel Philips head screws which to me have large heads that stick out to far taking up space inside the chamber.

The width of build space between the posts is around 7mm (bit of a tight squeeze), the coils hang upside down over the internal airflow (AF) which has a scooped shape positioning the coils just right over this is a must, you also have 4 wicking spaces for your cotton.OBS Engine 2 post close

Glass Tank

Made of Pyrex glass the tank will hold up to 5ml of e-liquid with a spare in the box.OBS Engine 2 pyrex

Chamber/ Chimney/ Airflow/ Fill Port

The assembly comes as one piece and is made of stainless steel; the chamber has the Engine logos laser etched on the outside other than that it is pretty standard.OBS Engine 2 barrelThe coil cover is in two parts the space between is the AF, tabs located on the inner section; fit into cut outs located on the inside of the deck they create a seal for air to travel down the narrow space and through the internal airflow, the inside is domed so any condensation will drop back down.OBS Engine 2 af gapThe visible part of the chimney is short, understandable considering the size of the deck posts and the fact that the rest of the chimney is inside the top part of the assembly. The top AF is handled by a ring that freely spins over 3 holes enabling you to precisely tune your AF to your liking.OBS Engine 2 top afThe fill port is located under the top AF, a small mark on the section shows where the port is, lift the ring to reveal it, the other side of the fill port ring has the OBS logo.OBS Engine 2 fport openTo complete the assembly above the AF is the space for your 510 drip tip.OBS Engine 2 dt space

Drip Tip

Made of delrin the drip tip has a mottled pattern, it has a 14mm outer diameter with the internal bore being 7mm and the base is flared to fully cover the SS plate on the assembly. OBS Engine 2 510 dt

A basic guide to coiling/wicking

You can replace coils and cotton without fully emptying the Engine 2 RTA.

  • Unscrew the base from the main structure.
  • Insert your coils, clip the leads after inserting.OBS Engine 2 coil placement
  • Position your coil over the scooped internal AF, heat and strum your coils.
  • Insert your cotton trim and tuck into the wick spaces.OBS Engine 2 cot in
  • Dampen your coils and cotton with e-liquid.OBS Engine 2 damp cotton
  • Screw back into the main structure.
  • Fill your tank with liquid.OBS Engine 2 filling

Tip – take your time installing the coils! Until you are used to installing the coils upside down it can be of a bit fiddly job.

How does the OBS Engine 2 RTA Perform?

For this review I have installed 2 Alien Kanthal Clapton coils 0.18Ω, the e-liquid I will be using is ZAP! Vintage Cola, sitting on the Eleaf Invoke 220w.OBS Engine 2 invoke eng fill

25w

Starting at 25w with the airflow almost closed (Mouth To Lung Style) I experienced a cool vape with a good amount of vapour for MTL the flavour was excellent.

45w

With the AF open to half (Direct to Lung Style) I again experienced a cool vape with a decent amount of vapour the flavour was again excellent.

65W

The AF open fully this time, (DTL) the vape was warm a great amount of vapour was produced and the flavour was very good.

90W

Pushing the wattage up to 90w resulted in a very warm vape; the flavour not as good as at lower watts still good though, the vapour production was enormous.

I have settled on 88w as my sweet spot with this RTA and these coils it still gives good flavour and vapour while not being quite so hot for my poor micro lungs lol.OBS Engine 2 tilt

Airflow

I have notice during my time in testing the OBS Engine 2 RTA that the AF does create a bit of noise while wide open, however I found the AF to be pleasant and swishy. Thinking on it, the top 3 AF holes could stand to be a little wider this might help a little with the noise.

Flavour remarks

I have enjoyed the flavour from this RTA however to me it’s not a stellar flavour, dragging the Nano out I found that pull for pull the Nano had a slight edge on the flavour front, not by much but still!

Chain Vaping

At 65w for 8 toots I did not receive any dry hits, the tank did get warm but cooled down fairly quickly.

Installing coils

I will admit I have never installed coils upside down before! At first I was a bit put off by limited space for building, I found it quite difficult to hold and position the coils, but taking my time and hoping my hands didn’t cramp up (arthritis) I think I managed quite well.

Threads/O rings/Drip tip

All threads are well turned and smooth to operate, the O rings are of excellent quality and fit the various places on the tank very well indeed.

The drip tip is good looking feels very comfortable in the mouth and fit very well on the tank, it disappointed and surprised me somewhat that the tip is a 510 with the styling of the tank an 810 tip would have in my opinion been better suited.OBS Engine 2 port

Pros

  • Build and design quality is excellent
  • Beautiful looking tank
  • Vapour production is enormous at high watts
  • Flavour production is better at medium to lower watts
  • Keeps up with chain vaping
  • None leaking design
  • Decent amount of spares
  • Price won’t break the bank if you shop around

Cons

  • AF is a little noisy wide open
  • Coil installation could be considered intimidating to new builders and frustrating for the rest of us lol

Final Review Verdict

I don’t want you to think I hate this RTA far from it, I’ve enjoyed my time with it! Although I do feel that OBS seem to be stuck in the style that works, the AF while swishy with good enough flavour I feel that they could have tweaked it a bit for a bit better flavour.

The posts, while hanging the coils is different, maybe they could have done something to make the posts a little more user friendly.

Overall I do like the OBS Engine 2 RTA, while the building can be a bit of a pain, once you get it going like all the Engine tanks it’s a work horse, be it a very familiar work horse.

Would I buy the OBS Engine 2 RTA should I lose or damage this one? I’m on the fence! Yes I like it well enough but No I wouldn’t miss it.

IJOY COMBO RDA REVIEW

FIRST IMPRESSION OUT OF THE BOX:

The iJoy combo RDA comes in a nice little black box. Everything is on one level and as soon as you open up the box up, you will see the RDA as well as a spare parts pack with some cotton and some nice clapton coils. It also looks like they provided two spare springs for the posts on this RDA. Mine is rainbow and I really like the finish on it. It’s a short little RDA for a 25mm atomizer. The deck is very interesting and I can’t wait to get some coils in there and try it out.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

  • One iJoy Combo Screwless Two Post 25mm RDA
  • One 10mm Wide Bore 810 ULTEM Drip Tip
  • One Pair Prebuilt Coils
  • Post Compression Tool
  • Spare Parts Pack

iJoy Combo RDA Review

FROM TOP TO BOTTOM:

Absolutely love the Ultem drip tip that comes with this RDA. It is a nice thick piece of Ultem with an extremely wide bore to it. The drip tip is very comfortable and it is 810 or Goon compatible. I have always been a big fan of Ultem drip tips and this is one of the better ones that you will get as a stock drip tip.

iJoy Combo RDA Review

The barrel and top cap are all one piece so you cannot adjust the airflow via the top cap. The airflow is adjusted by rotating the combination top cap/barrel along the base of the atomizer. The barrel has a beautiful rainbow finish to it and the branding is very elegant. There is a crest on one side of the atomizer that almost looks like a family crest from an old European family. The branding is very subtle and elegant. The top cap is very well machine and it has two cyclops shaped air flow slots. Each air slot measures 10 mm by 2 mm. The interior has a very conical design towards the top and I’m sure this will produce some good flavor. The airflow is rather smooth as well.

iJoy Combo RDA Review

The base of the atomizer has two very thick, beefy o’rings that do an amazing job of keeping the top cap in place. Right below your coil, there is a cut out on the edge of the base that looks like a ramp going upwards. This is where you line up your airflow slot. You can also taper down your airflow slot by turning the top cap and the part that is not ramped up will close off your air flow. It’s a little different than adjusting the top cap on a traditional RDA. It does have a con to the design because you cannot center your coil in front of your air flow if you decide to shut it down. By shutting down the airflow, you are only hitting the corners of your coil. I would have rather seen adjustability via a separate top cap.

iJoy Combo RDA Review

The juice well on the Combo is very deep and you can get a lot of drops of juice in there. The juice well is 9 mm deep. The base of the Combo has some iJoy branding on it as well as a Phillips head negative post screw. The whole base is gold plated including the post. The 510 pin is also gold plated with an insulator ring. The threading on the 510 is gold plated as well but unfortunately, there was no included squonking pin. That really is a shame because of the deep juice well that the combo RDA has. I have no doubt in my mind that this would have made a very good squonking RDA had iJoy taken the time to include that option.

THE DECK:

The deck on the combo RDA is what really sets it apart from most of its competition. The reason this deck is different is because it is a true tool-less deck. What we have here are two posts with one terminal per post. The terminals measure 2.5 mm by 3 mm. There are no deck screws, instead, we have two pushdown post that are spring loaded. When you take your thumb and push down on the top of the post, the terminal opens up. While it is very innovative, it’s not the easiest deck in the world to build on. The springs are nicely done and iJoy has included spares. To replace the springs, simply screw off the top cap of the post and you can pull the spring out and replace it with a new one. It is a very innovative deck and the terminals are very big. You will have no problem fitting any type of coil in the post holes of the iJoy Combo RDA.

iJoy Combo RDA Review

BUILDING AND WICKING:

Like I said before, building on the iJoy Combo RDA, there’s not the easiest deck in the world to deal with. The reason that it’s not too easy to build on this is that it takes a lot of pressure to open up those post holes. So, you need one hand free while opening up the post holes which leaves you with only one more hand for coil placement. There is a post compression tool that helps you hold down both posts at one time but it still is a pain to build on even with this tool. I know, it doesn’t sound that tough but it can be tough when you are trying to place both coils at once in the terminals all the while holding down the heavy springs on the post themselves. I’m probably not doing a great job of explaining that but if you buy this RDA, you will understand exactly what I mean the first time you build on it. The good news is once the coils are in place, they stay in place because the spring load on the post is very heavy. You will have no problem adjusting your coil once the coils are in the terminals. The leads will stay exactly where you place them and you will be able to make your adjustments without the leads coming loose.

Wicking the RDA is as simple as any RDA. Simply feed your cotton through the coil and make sure you gently place your cotton in the deck. Where you place your cotton can be a little tight though because the posts on this RDA are much thicker and wider than a normal RDA. The juice well is also deep so please make sure that you cut your cotton long enough so it hits the bottom of the juice well. Other than that, wicking is a breeze.

HOW DOES IT VAPE:

This is a nice little RDA that has really good flavor. Air flow is not exactly super airy but at the same time, it’s not that restrictive either. You do have the choice of cutting the airflow down but as I mentioned before, that will mean that your air flow really isn’t hitting the center of your coil. When the airflow is in any position, it is smooth. Even when it is closed down and off center. The conical design of the top cap does give this RDA excellent flavor. It is also a pretty cloudy RDA as well.

Right now, I am using the set of Clapton’s that iJoy included in the package. They are Kanthal clapton’s and they are ohming out at .29 ohms. I have them on my new Tesla WYE mod and I am running them at 80 watts in power mode. I get a very thick, dense, vape and the flavor is really good as well. Because this atomizer is on the short side for a 25mm atomizer, the flavor does not have a long way to go. I definitely think that that contributes to the superior flavor on the Combo RDA. It is definitely one of the better flavor and cloudier RDA’s on the market today.

WHAT WOULD HAVE MADE IT BETTER:

  • Separate top cap with airflow adjustment
  • More than one included drip tip
  • Squonking pin

I’m not a huge fan of the way they did the air flow adjustment on this RDA. I definitely do not like the fact that when I cut down my air flow, I have no way of centering it on my coil. To me, that is a huge con. I also think that in today’s market, iJoy needs to get with the program and start including more than one drip tip with their atomizers. It seems to me that every other company does this except for iJoy. IJoy, if you are reading this, vapers like choices. When you drop a product with just one drip tip, vapers will just start buying a similar product that comes with more than one drip tip. I also cannot believe that, in today’s market and with squonking becoming as big as it is, iJoy did not include a squonking pin. I think that’s a huge mistake for this RDA and I think they should have taken the time to design one for it. Had iJoy taken the time to do that, I think this would have been an excellent squonk RDA.

CONCLUSION:

This is a great little RDA with a tool-less deck. It is the type of RDA that would be great to travel with since you would not need a DIY kit to rebuild it. I actually used it on one of my last trips and it proved to be invaluable on that trip since I did not have to carry my DIY travel kit. All I took with me was some coils and some cotton. So, if you like to drip and travel, this is definitely a great RDA to add to your collection. I’m not so sure it would be a great RDA for a beginner because the deck is a little bit of a pain to build on. An experienced user will not have a problem navigating it but a newbie might.

The iJoy combo RDA is a stubby little flavor atomizer. The clouds are great as well but the flavor is definitely better. I do like the way it vapes and I like the way it looks on most of my mods. The machining is done very well and the finish is excellent, too. If you are a flavor chaser and you like your clouds, too, then you should definitely go out and pick yourself up and iJoy Combo RDA. It has an innovative deck design and it will provide you with a quality vape. This atomizer is DeucesJack approved.
