KANGER IKEN KIT REVIEW – IBARBIE

The Kangertech IKEN is the newest member of the AKD line, joining its bigger and meaner brother, the Kanger Five6. Marketed as a high-powered mod that’s friendly to both beginners and advanced users alike, the IKEN houses a massive internal 5100mAh LiPo battery which is used to power the device all the way up to a whopping 230 watts. With Kangertech’s recent resurgence in developing modern tech, one might feel that the company is wading in to new, untested waters.

Product Pros

  • Monstrous 5100mAh Battery
  • Relatively Compact
  • Leak Free Design

Product Cons

  • Included Coils are Rated for up to 60 watts only

 

Kanger IKEN Review: Breakdown

Build Quality

Packaged neatly in a revised box design that sports Kangertech’s new AKD line, I already had a good impression of the overall feel of the device. It’s hard not to be impressed when a company goes the extra mile in presenting you the product even after you’ve already purchased it. Bundled along with the IKEN mod are the IKEN tank, two SSOCC coils, a micro USB cable used for recharging the device, and the standard user manual.

Measuring out to 44mm * 42mm * 78mm (LxWxH), the IKEN mod is a remarkably compact device that rivals the footprint of the smallest and most ergonomic dual 18650 mods. Although it doesn’t utilize the 18650 battery technology, the IKEN’s 5100mAh battery promises longer lasting battery life and an even greater range of power delivery. Going all the way up to 230 watts, the mod is definitely not lacking in the power department, capable of powering the biggest and baddest coils anyone can think of. Considering this, it’s a pity that the two included coils that come with the kit are only rated for 60 watts maximum, disallowing the device to be vaped at higher wattages out of the box.

Weighing in at 211 grams, it definitely cant be considered hefty either. The Iken gives off a sensation when held that overall feels just right regardless of how big or small your hands are, thanks to the ergonomic shape of the mod which places your fingers in the perfect position to hit the clicky and responsive firing button. The up and down buttons are also easily accessible and feel responsive to press on, making any desired changes in wattage or temperature a breeze.

The front of the device is where you’ll find the large, clear, and crisp 1.51” TFT color display. While the resolution of the display is of a higher resolution compared to other devices, I found the colors to be rather drab or limited (Although this could be attributed to me being color blind, people who I’ve shown the mod to swear that there’s a hint of green in there somewhere). Colorful or not, the display is brimming with information that informs the user of the overall status of the device, whether vaping in wattage or temperature control mode.

The back of the device shows off a large and grippy carbon fiber sticker (no, it’s not real carbon fiber) which nevertheless feels great to hold against the palm of your hand, and gives the device a nice premium feel. Pairing this with the solid Zinc Alloy construction, the IKEN definitely feels like a durable and stable device that should withstand the harshness of time.

Vapor Quality

Kangertech despite creating all new designs for their mods, tanks, and even packaging, have chosen to stick to the tried and tested SSOCC coils which have been used dating back to as far as 2015 in their classic and world-renowned subtank atomizers.

It’s not a wonder why due to the SSOCC coil heads being one of the most popular and high-quality coils sold even up to this date. Almost needless to say that the flavor production of the SSOCC coils are outstanding in every regard, and while the airflow allows for more of a restricted draw, vapor production is still decent.

The new IKEN tank was designed to create a hassle-free experience for both beginners and advanced users alike. Thanks to the efficient dual top adjustable airflow design that pulls in air from the top of the tank, down to the bottom (Hence the U-Airflow nomenclature).

The biggest advantage that this design offers is it eliminates any possibility of the tank leaking at all. Majority of popular tanks in the market often use a bottom airflow design which promises better flavor and vapor production, but the drawback is e-liquid often pools up and leaks downward, out the airflow thanks to gravity. Kangertech has managed to create a top airflow design which rivals the performance of its counterparts without the annoying leaking problem.

The IKEN tank uses a top fill cap that is threaded on and off which reveals the adequate portholes for filling up with e-liquid, and with the sizeable 4ml reservoir, you won’t be needing to fill up the tank frequently when on the go.

Versatility

The IKEN features all the typical functions we’ve come to expect from high-powered regulated devices… and then some. Temperature control supports the standard nickel, stainless steel, and titanium coil head, while pre-heat functions and adjustable TCR are also available for tweaking.

What sets the IKEN apart is its ability to go into what can be dubbed as a “Beginner Mode” that refines the user interface to only allow beginners to vape in power or wattage mode, filtering out the advanced functions only used by experienced users and thus creating a more user-friendly approach that’s easy to use for even the most neophyte of vapers.

Portability

Although compact, the IKEN does create a sizeable bulge in one’s pocket which might not make it the most pocket-friendly device. It definitely does fit though, but it might be necessary to remove all other contents from said pocket beforehand (its never a good idea anyway to store your mod alongside other objects, especially metallic ones)

The 5100mAh LiPo offers plenty of lasting power that should carry even the biggest power users throughout a full day’s use. Typical usage extends the battery life up to 2 or 3 days which is very promising for those who would rather spend more time vaping than charging their mod.

Conclusion

The Kangertech IKEN kit is definitely worthy of your vaping dollars. With its solid zinc alloy construction, strong wattage output, and long-lasting battery, it’s difficult to find any reason to dislike this device. The IKEN tank with its leak-proof design, and great flavor production is a great pairing to this compact powerhouse.

Users who prefer swappable 18650 batteries might automatically give the IKEN a pass, but for those who prefer the convenience of purchasing a kit that offers a battery of this quality, the IKEN is a definite must buy, both for beginners and advanced users alike.

JOYETECH CUBOX AIO STARTER KIT REVIEW

The Cubox AIO Starter Kit is Joyetech’s latest release designed for beginners. Featuring an easy to use, hassle-free design utilizing a 2000mAh internal LiPo battery and a built-in tank that can hold up to 2ml of e-liquid. But can the Cubox AIO really compete with the rest of the pack? Let’s find out in the review below.

Product Pros

  • Great Coil Life
  • Doesn’t Leak
  • Great Flavor

Product Cons

  • Mouth to Lung Vaping Only

Joyetech CUBOX AIO Review: Breakdown

Cubox AIO Colors

Build Quality

Available in a variety of colors to choose from, Joyetech hit it out the park in terms of creating a pleasing aesthetic for the Cubox AIO, striking a good balance between minimalism and flair, with just the right amount of accents on the mod to let you appreciate its looks without unnecessarily calling attention to the device from far away.

The zinc alloy and plastic construction give the mod a nice heft to it, making it feel solid enough that it won’t break after a single drop while being lightweight so as to make carrying the device as comfortable as possible. Weighing in at only 104.5 grams, its one of the smallest and lightest all in one devices out there

Crammed into a tiny frame that measures out to a mere 22.5 *40 * 67mm, the Cubox AIO is a spectacle in its own way. Sporting an almost seamless design that doesn’t give off any sharp edges, holding the mod is a pure joy with its well-designed ergonomics. The firing button is located at a comfortable position, allowing easy access for either the index finger or thumb, depending on how you prefer to grip your device. The firing button offers a good tactile response, feeling clicky and not at all mushy.

The internal tank is visible from the front and off to the sides of the Cubox, giving you a good view of how much eliquid is left. I particularly enjoy the positioning of the tank away from the firing button, since a majority of vapers including myself naturally lean towards using the index finger to fire their vapes, this means that the tank will be facing you directly while vaping making it even easier to monitor remaining eliquid levels.

The side of the mod features the micro USB port which is used to charge up the mod. Other ultra-compact devices have been undergoing a trend where the USB port is located underneath the device to give it a cleaner look, but doing this makes the mod inconvenient to charge because it means the mod will be unable to charge standing up. I’m glad Joyetech didn’t implement this, instead going for a more practical approach in terms of charging port location.

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

Vapor Quality

Straight out of the box the Cubox AIO kit comes with two Proc-BF coil heads rated at 0.6ohms each. These feature a restricted draw similar to a mouth to lung style vape which means you’ll be getting a lot more intense flavor with minimal vapor production.

Of course, this can be a good or bad thing depending on what you’re looking for in a vape. I just wish that Joyetech would have included a coil head that allows for more direct lung style vaping just to give everyone the option, especially considering that the Cubox does feature an adjustable airflow ring, giving it the potential to function as a direct lung vape with more airflow.

For a MTL vape the Cubox holds plenty of eliquid with a maximum capacity of 2ml. Refilling the tank is simple enough requiring you to unscrew the top cap off and easily drip down eliquid through the juice ports. Thanks to the all in one design of the Cubox, the tank is also leak proof, so you can rest easy about storing the mod in your bag or pockets without fear of potentially having eliquid leak out all over your belongings.

Cubox AIO Exploded

Versatility

The Cubox AIO is a regulated mod so there are no options to increase or lower the vaping output. It fires at a fixed wattage depending on the remaining voltage or battery life held by the internal 2000mAH LiPo battery.

While variable wattage is always nice to have as it lets the device work with a variety of coil builds and atomizers, I don’t find it necessary for the Cubox, seeing as its a mod geared towards beginners who are more often than not, going to prefer mouth to lung style of vaping over huge cloud chasing builds.

Needless to say that the Cubox doesn’t have any options for temperature control, preheatable wattage, or customisable TCR. What this device does have however is onboard circuit protection, preventing the battery for from overcharging and over discharging, making it a simpler and safer option to mechanical mods despite both being unregulated.

Portability

While the battery of the Cubox AIO isn’t user replaceable and cant be swapped out on the go with a fresh unit, the device feature 2 amp charging ensuring that the battery can be easily topped up if you have access to a USB power source such as a laptop or power bank. Since the Cubox is primarily a MTL style device, he 2000mAh lasts quite a long time and can go for at least a day before needing recharging, but of course, your mileage may vary.

The sleek and smooth design makes it easy to pocket making it a comfortable device to bring with you on the go. The 2ml tank goes a long way as well before needing to top it off with more eliquid, so you’ll rarely need to bring anything else with you besides the mod itself.

Cubox AIO down

Conclusion

The Cubox AIO is a handy and easy to use device perfect for the beginning vaper. The appealing form factor coupled with the strong MTL performance of the included coils should make transitioning from tobacco smoking an easy experience. The Cubox might not be the ideal device for seasoned vapers since the kit lacks any coils that let you vape in direct lung mode, but is still a viable option for advanced users who might want a simple and no-frills secondary vape.

Review of GEEKVAPE Griffin 25 Plus RTA Atomizer

geekvape-griffin-25-plus-rta-atomizera097d36f
I don’t know how many times GeekVape can keep updating this same tanks, but now we have the Griffin 25 Plus RTA and this looks like the best one yet. This time around they are giving us both of the top caps in the box so you can switch between top airflow or not on the fly. While everything else looks practically the same on the outside, you’ll notice that the juice channels are a bit different. This is because GeekVape has given the build deck a bit of an overhaul in the new Griffin 25 Plus RTA.The Griffin 25 Plus is the upgraded Griffin 25 RTA. It is built with Kennedy style airflow, RDA-like wicking and a huge Velocity style deck.

It features with a Kennedy style bottom airflow,with a big 18.9mm velocity build deck,easy to fill the e-juice ,and Griffin 25 Plus tank capacity is 5ml .it is more bigger than Griffin 25 min version 3ml .using RDTA juice flow channel and Convenient wicking exactly same as RDA.Catch to carry Griffin 25 Plus in hand ! The GeekVape Griffin 25 Plus Tank is one of the latest atomizers coming from GeekVape. This tank is constructed of stainless steel and silica glass. Even though it looks very similar to the original Griffin 25, it is very different.
geekvape-griffin-25-plus-rta-atomizer19d74c2f7

For one, the airflow is now a Kennedy Styled Airflow, which will surely improve upon the flavor! Not only is the airflow different, wicking this tank is different as well. According to GeekVape, you can wick this tank just like you would an RDA. The Griffin 25 Plus has a RDTA juice flow channel, and features a big velocity styled deck that is 18.9mm! Lastly, this tank has a 5ml e-liquid capacity, and features top fill.First of all, the build deck still sports the same 2 post velocity style so it’s still easy to coil. It’s very roomy, but the other changes make this a heck of a lot easier to wick too. You wick this Griffin 25 Plus just like you would with a dripper by placing you’re wicks on the floor of the deck. Another notable change is that airflow.

We get the perfect airflow design of the Kennedy in an rebuildable tank atomizer that performs like a dripper, which is a pretty sweet deal. You can enjoy both top and bottom airflow with top airflow set, or just Kennedy style bottom airflow. It features with RDTA juice flow channel and easy wicking exactly same as RDA.
geekvape_griffin_25_plus_rta_1

The main differences from its predecessor is that the 25 Plus has Kennedy style airflow while the Griffin 25 RTA had a top airflow and standard option. Also, while the the tank capacity has been reduced by 1ml, the newer RTA has a larger 18.9mm deck, an RDTA juice flow channel and is easily wicked, similar to an RDA.The deck measures 18.9mm acorss and is Velocity style with dual posts that have dual terminals.Other than those awesome changes, this GeekVape Griffin 25 Plus RTA holds a good amount of ejuice at 5 milliliters.

The 510 positive post is gold plated for maximum conductivity which is always great. You’ll even find a single coil adapter in the box for the vaper who prefers to rock the single coil builds. The bottom line is that this Griffin 25 Plus RTA is one heck of an upgrade to a tank that was already pretty awesome to begin with! The 25 Plus is made from stainless steel with Silica glass tank and measures 25.0mm x 64.5mm. It includes two alternate top caps and is available in silver or black. The tank capacity is a big 5ml, preventing the need for frequent refills. At the bottom, there’s a fully adjustable positive 510 connection pin with full plated gold housing for good conduction. The included drip tip is 10mm in height.

Geekvape Peerless RDTA Review: Solid Performance at Affordable Pricing

Geekvape Peerless RDTA Review

The Geekvape Peerless line of atomizers is one of the latest coming from Geekvape who’s well known for delivering excellent performing atomizers at affordable prices. The original GeekVape Peerless RDA was a favorite by many vapers and even made it to our Top 10 RDA Article. Geekvape is now back with a new atomizer to add to this line and have released the Peerless RDTA which adopts some of the key features of the RDA, but adds a tank section underneath.

Geekvape Peerless RDTA Review

Out of the box

The Peerless RDTA that I did receive was the sample version; therefore the final retail packaging could be different. However, if this was the retail packaging I wouldn’t really have an issue with it since I do like its simplicity and it does keep everything secure while in transit. The front of the packaging clearly states the name of the atomizer, and the back gives some minor details about what’s inside.

Included with the Geekvape Peerless RDTA you do receive the atomizer itself, a wide bore delrin 810 drip tip, a delrin 510 drip tip adapter, a spare glass tank section, a pair of exotic coils, a ceramic block for single coils, a 510 delrin drip tip, a bag of spare parts and a user manual. It’s definitely a pro that Geekvape includes all of these extras as this always adds value to your purchase. In addition, they are known for adding many extras in the packaging, so I’m glad they’re sticking to it. The base diameter of this atomizer is 24mm, so it’ll look great on most devices you attach it to.

Upon first glance, you do see the “Peerless” logo right on the top cap, and it’s not too flashy or anything, which is great. The 810 wide bore delrin drip tip is already installed, and it’s a pro for sure that you can use both 510 and 810 drip tips with this atomizer, as we know many of our subscribers really enjoy using their custom drip tips! The version I did receive is the 4ml variant, but they do say there is a 2ml TPD version available. I’m not entirely sure whether they’re adding a silicone piece to drop the e-liquid capacity or releasing a TPD version separately.

Geekvape Peerless RDTA Review

Also, I did receive the stainless steel color, but there are tons of other color options available such as Black, Gold, Red, and Blue. What makes this RDTA different from some of the others on the market is its fill system. It features a hinge lock filling system which is located right next to the edge of one side of the build deck. I do like this fill system, and this is something I’ll get more into later on in this review.

Just like the Peerless RDA, this atomizer does feature fully adjustable side airflow. Something worth mentioning is that the top cap is one solid piece, so the airflow control is built into it; therefore you cannot take it apart and clean it. Usually, we see the top cap and the airflow control section being separate. This can be seen as a con since you cannot completely take it apart when it comes to cleaning, but when you are cleaning it simply turn the airflow while washing it to ensure all parts of the inside of the top cap is being cleaned.

The Peerless RDTA did come clean with no machine oil whatsoever, which is certainly a pro in my book! One wash with warm water and this atomizer was ready to be built. Not to mention, the fit and finish of this RDTA are top notch!

All in all, my first impressions of the Geekvape Peerless RDTA was great! I didn’t really have any cons to be mentioned right away, which is always a good thing!

Building & Wicking

The Peerless RDTA by GeekVape does feature an upgraded Peerless build deck. If you’re used to the build deck from the original Peerless RDA, then this one will be a breeze for you. To describe the deck itself, it features 2 posts with multiple post holes meant for different coil builds. For example, there are slots which are much more suited to thicker coil builds such as Fused Claptons and Aliens, and then there are other post holes which are more suitable for simple round wire builds.

In addition, since there are multiple post holes, you have tons of different options in regards to what you can actually install in this atomizer. For example, you can utilize the two post holes towards the ends of the build deck to install your longer Clapton builds or the two inner post holes for your simple round wire builds. This is definitely a pro as it’ll suit many vapers preferences when it comes to what you can install.

With this build deck, I was easily able to install a spaced Dual Stainless Steel Fused Clapton with zero issues. Something worth mentioning is that the screws to screw in from the top, which is great for your exotic coil builds as a design as such won’t really twist or bend your leads.

Geekvape Peerless RDTA Review

Wicking is also very easy and straightforward. Simply cut your cotton to the point where you know the cotton will pole into the tank section, fluff it out and then gently tuck your cotton into the wicking ports. You can unscrew the base section to gain access to underneath your build deck if you want to pull the cotton through with tweezers which always helps when it comes to wicking these style of atomizers. I found that the best way to wick this RDTA is to have the cotton barely poking out into the tank section, and this also leaves you more room for e-juice in the tank section.

Overall, build and wicking the Peerless RDTA is easy! I do like this style of build deck as it can accommodate pretty much any build you throw at it. Not to mention, wicking can be done quite easily as well.

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

Performance

Now the biggest question of this vape review is how does this atomizer perform? Well, I can surely say the performance is great! Firstly, my preferred coil build was a spaced Dual Stainless Steel Fused Clapton which had a resistance of 0.19 ohm. I did try other coil builds as well such as round wire builds and other Clapton coils such as contact Fused Claptons, and Triple Core Fused Claptons, which all performed well. I also tried a single coil build, but I personally liked how dual coils performed in this atomizer.

With this specific coil build, I would vape it between 60w and 80w. In addition, in temperature control mode, I would vape it at these wattages, but have the temperature set between 440F and 480F. At these settings, I would get a warm vape, which is something I do prefer. The flavor is very good, and better than what I had expected. I do recommend positioning your coils just a bit higher so that the airflow can hit both the sides and underneath the coil.

Speaking about airflow, it is incredibly smooth and very easy to adjust. I do think due to its design of being one solid piece, it makes the airflow adjustment smooth and easy. Even though the airflow is smooth, it is slightly on the noisy side, especially when you start to close off the airflow. Since I did like to close off the airflow about 1/4 of the way, I did notice it quite a bit. When the airflow is wide open, you don’t really get much noise.

Geekvape Peerless RDTA Review

The vapor production is also very good with the Peerless RDTA. I do want to mention that there is not a ton of airflow available, but I think it would satisfy the vast majority of vapers. However, if you do like a wide-open draw with very little restriction, then this RDTA might not be for you.

As mentioned earlier, this atomizer does have a 4ml e-liquid capacity and features a hinge lock filling system. The hinge lock is located behind one of your coils, so you do have to be careful when opening and filling. In addition, there is a piece of peek that is there and helps keep the seal secure so you won’t experience any leaking. This does tend to pop out here and there and is not very easy to put back into place since it’s so small. In addition, the opening itself is not large either, but you’ll get away with dropper bottles and unicorn bottles. Lastly, the hinge itself is a bit on the looser side, which can be seen as a con.

All in all, the performance of the Peerless RDTA is great! The overall performance is pretty similar to the RDA variant, so if you’re a fan of how that performs, then you’ll love this RDTA!

Pros

  • Solid build quality
  • Great flavor
  • Easy to build and wick
  • Smooth airflow
  • Build Deck can accommodate various coil builds
  • Single Coil Block Included
  • Easy fill system

Cons

  • Slightly Noisy Airflow
  • The hinge on the fill system is a bit loose
  • The top cap is one piece (Subjective)

Product Features:

  • 24mm Base Diameter
  • Upgraded Peerless Build Deck (Accommodates various coil builds)
  • 2ml/4ml E-Liquid Capacity
  • Hinge Lock Filling System
  • Fully Adjustable Side Airflow
  • Ceramic Single Coil Block Included
  • Includes Delrin 810 & 510 Drip Tip
  • Gold Plated 510 Connection
  • 510 Drip Tip Adapter Included
  • Pair of Coils, Bag of Spare Parts & Spare Glass Tank Section Included
  • Colors Available: Stainless Steel, Black, Red, Gold, Blue

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Geekvape Peerless RDTA is a solid performing atomizer that offers a unique fill system and a build deck that can accommodate various coil builds. I’m happy that Geekvape decided to keep this style of build deck as it’s very easy to work with, and the fact that you can install builds from simple round wire to exotic builds such as an Alien or Fused Clapton is a huge pro in my opinion. Not to mention, it does come with a single coil block, which is great for you vapers who prefer single coil builds.

Even though its performance and features are great, there were still some cons to be mentioned with this one. Firstly, the slightly noisy airflow may not bother some vapers, but it’s still something worth mentioning as it can become annoying. In addition, I do wish the hinge for the fill system was more secure and hopefully, this is fixed in the retail version. Lastly, the top cap being one piece is subjective as the only issue with this is that you cannot take it apart when it comes to cleaning.

With that being said, the Geekvape Peerless RDTA is still a great performing atomizer and it’s available at an incredibly affordable price. If you’re looking for a new RDTA and a fan of the original Peerless RDA, then I can definitely recommend checking out the Peerless RDTA.

Innokin Ares MTL RTA Review

As a person, I tend to not revisit old practices. I don’t watch many old movies. I still check out new music. Heck, I don’t even get excited about retro video games. In vaping, though I never forget my roots, I left mouth-to-lung (MTL) devices behind a long time ago. But thanks to the Innokin Ares MTL RTA, I found a whole new appreciation for this style of vaping, and a new go-to atomizer for pure flavor.

The vaping personalities behind the new Innokin Ares – Phil “PBusardo” Busardo and Dimitris “The Vapin’ Greek” Agrafiotis – may be dedicated MTL enthusiasts, but truth be told, you don’t even need to be a fan of MTL vaping to appreciate the flavor and quality this rebuildable tank atomizer brings to the table. Let’s dive in and take a closer look at the Innokin Ares to see why my mind changed quite a bit over the course of a few weeks.

Initial impressions of the Innokin Ares MTL RTA

Innokin has always impressed with its dedication to top-tier packaging, and the Ares is no exception. On the outside, sharp graphics and clearly translated English make the product’s features easy to understand. But on the inside – yes, even with a black and white image of Phil and Dimitris staring back at you – Innokin has raised the bar for professional, mature presentation.

Inside the box, you’ll find the Ares MTL RTA itself, two pre-wrapped coils, a wide range of colored o-rings, additional wire, extra screws, organic Japanese cotton, and a pair of separate coil jigs – each representing the preferred build tools used by the vaping heroes on the box. But not only are these items included, they’re packaged in sealed, protective sleeves with clear labeling on each for the items within.

The Ares itself is an interesting tank. Though listed as an RTA, the deck is elevated, much like what we old-timers used to refer to as a Genesis Tank Atomizer (GTA), complete with large wick slots that can visibly hang below the deck openings, in full view of the glass, should you choose to build this way.And, in a nice touch, there is also an included QR code for additional video instructions to help all levels of vapers maximize their experience with the Ares RTA. It’s a tremendously elegant offering, and a model for other companies to follow.

One nice inclusion is the sloped, “bell-like” chamber cap, which narrows until it can connect with the already slim chimney section. This combination allows for a nice amount of vapor to concentrate as it travels smoothly toward your mouth. Is it revolutionary? No. Does it create strong, richly flavored vapor? Absolutely.

The rest of this “old-school” tank has some decidedly “new” features. A sliding top-fill cap has a wide fill port, with a satisfying “click” that keeps it open without springing back while injecting e-liquid. And the 24mm width means it won’t look out of place on today’s more robust devices.

Additionally, the versatile dual airflow control ring allows users to vary between ultra-tight, all the way to a wide-open setting that practically allows for restricted lung vaping. I tested all settings, and found that the tightest two settings were most akin to a traditional cigarette, without being overly snug. But, my wife, who is a full-time MTL vaper, actually found all settings to be looser than she expected, especially coming from two dedicated MTL enthusiasts.

She also indicated that the curved mouthpiece (one of two included in the kit) tightened up the draw a little further, bringing the experience closer to a traditional smoking experience. Is it as tight as the recently reviewed VandyVape Berserker? Not even close. But a setup like this fills several gaps for different types of vapers.

Building the Innokin Ares MTL RTA

Taking apart the Ares reveals an absolutely beautiful, user-friendly, single-coil build deck. It’s a straightforward two-post design that is perfect for new builders, simply because there’s no trimming or tinkering necessary until after the coil is seated.

(For the record, Innokin also included different types of spare screws for the coil capture, in case you prefer Phillips over flathead, or vice versa.)And, with a side-screw, open-top format, your coils should slide right into the generous terminals. In fact, that’s exactly what happened using the prebuilt coil included in the package. I placed it, turned each screw four times, snipped and wicked. It was about as effortless as coil building could be.

Though the included build tools allow for 3.5mm coil diameters, I found 3mm to be the sweet spot here. Though there’s ample room for a larger coil, I found the smaller, more concentrated build to improve flavor dramatically by comparison. My 2.5mm test coil also worked well, but the cotton seemed to choke a bit with the smaller diameter.

Also, I imagine creative coil artists will try to get multiple coil builds into the Ares RTA, but again, I’d recommend against it. The deck is designed for simple, no-nonsense coils, and I found it best to use it as intended.

As mentioned above, though the Ares MTL RTA can accept longer wicks down to the bottom of the chamber, I found my best wicking came from snipping the cotton tails just below where they stick out of the build deck. I tried a number of different wicks, and found the juice flowed best with minimal cotton in the way – just enough to cover each opening.

Of course, this worked best for sporadic bursts of chain vaping for testing. Under more normal circumstances, longer wicks might work better. Your mileage may vary (and probably will). But these decks offer a lot of versatility, so experiment to find the wick that works best for you.

One final note about the tank section – the 4mL capacity is absolutely gargantuan for an MTL tank. When used at lower wattages, on a higher-ohm build, with thinner, higher-nicotine e-liquid, I can imagine an MTL vaper getting more than a day out of each fill … even if they vape heavier than normal.

Vaping the Innokin Ares RTA (MTL)

Considering this tank was designed in part by two well-known vape reviewers – each of whom has access to countless high-end tanks and atomizers, it’s no surprise that the Ares vapes extremely well. What IS surprising is how well it vapes for such a minimal price point.

Starting with the included 1.0-ohm prebuilt coil, I wicked and juiced with a 6mg, 50/50 blend e-liquid, then tried it on my beloved Wismec Ravage. After just a minute of soaking, the Ares offered up surprisingly thick vapor, even at just 20-25 watts. Though the vape itself was cool, the flavor was rich and concentrated, with just the right balance of bite from the higher nicotine level.

I then tried to move to higher resistance kanthal coil, lowering the wattage to just 15 watts. Here, I found the build ramped well, if not a little too quickly. But, for seasoned MTL fans, this is a likely sweet spot that offered the same rich flavor, and cool mouth feel.

I decided to move next to a temp control build, using Ni200 wire, at a much lower resistance of 0.2 ohms. Even the thinner-gauge nickel seated well in the Ares’ massive terminals, and I had no issues setting and locking resistance in TC mode.

At higher temps, I did notice the much higher ramp-up requirements and narrow chimney did lead to short bursts of initial heat when firing, but the Ares quickly caught up and didn’t look back. Higher temperature/wattage vaping isn’t an ideal use of the Ares in my opinion due to the tighter chimney, but it nonetheless performed without fail.

My favorite coil to use on the Innokin Ares MTL RTA was one I built myself, using the spare wire included in the box. Reading at 0.75 ohms, with the airflow opened all the way, I managed to vape the Ares as both an MTL and restricted lung hit device, at a reasonable 30-35 watts. Here, I found a perfect balance of tighter smoking-like draw, and the warm, voluminous vapor I am used to from my everyday vape.

And even under these conditions, the flavor never failed to impress. While some draws might have gotten too warm for some, I was floored by how well the Ares continued to produce flavor, even with the snug chimney section.

Wrapping up

While I would be reluctant to call the Ares a “multi-purpose” atomizer, it certainly has enough flexibility to be appreciated by more than just die-hard MTL vapers. Innokin, alongside two of the most trusted names in vape reviews and advocacy, has developed a product with a near universal appeal, simply by how flavorful the resulting vapor is, from virtually any type of single-coil build.

Sure, I can imagine dyed-in-the-wool MTL enthusiasts questioning the somewhat looser draw of the Innokin Ares MTL RTA. But its deep flavor, rich vapor, and ease of use make the Ares a no-brainer for vapers looking to remind themselves of the products and practices that got them into vaping in the first place.

Hellvape ReBirth RDA

Medusa Reborn RDTA by GeekVape – very, very ambiguous

I have already told you about two of the three devices provided to us by the Gearbest store – Druga RDA and Newbie . Now it’s Medusa Reborn ‘s turn . Yes, the device appeared quite a long time ago, so I will not reveal America to you, having told about its performance characteristics. But I stil want to share with you about my experience of using this atomizer.

Medusa Reborn RDTA by GeekVape - very, very ambiguous
Packaging : 

Atomizer came to me in the standard for GeekVape productspackaging. You will not find any super important information for the user – certificates, warnings, system for checking the originality of the device. Inside, except for the tank itself, I found a bag with accessories for servicing the atomizer – o-rings, a proprietary screwdriver. The most interesting in the set, I can call a pin for use with skonkerov. Unfortunately, I do not have such a box, so I could not test this function. 
Medusa Reborn RDTA by GeekVape - very, very ambiguous

Design : 

I liked the overall look of the device. Designers have definitely worked on this little thing, if only because you will not find something more or less similar on the market (not counting the first version of Medusa, of course). I regretted only that I got a black version, not a steel one. On the case there is an interesting engraving, and on the black version it is almost invisible. 
Medusa Reborn RDTA by GeekVape - very, very ambiguous

I have no complaints about the quality of assembly and processing. Where you need everything, where you need to spin and nothing falls off. I have long been accustomed to the fact that GeekVape has excellent product quality control. I can only find fault with the dimensions of the atomizer itself. So that I did not wind it up, the setup seemed to me just huge. Maybe the reason is that the device is more like a drip, and in my understanding the drip should be smaller 🙂

Height – 40 mm. 
Diameter – 25 mm. 
Weight – 40 g.

Specifications :

The manufacturer stubbornly calls its RDTA device , but I don’t find another name for it other than Dripka, an overgrown one. This is the impression I got from the very moment I took the atomizer in my hands. In principle, the idea is quite simple – you get a base, as in a dripk, and a very very deep well for a liquid, into which the ends of the wool are lowered. In theory, it all works, but in practice I got a lot of negative feelings. 

Medusa Reborn RDTA by GeekVape - very, very ambiguous

I think you have already guessed that my overall impression is rather negative. So I will start with a positive point – the convenience of installing spirals. For this GeekVape atomizerchose a base with holes at different heights. Initially, I was rather skeptical about this, but using RDTA I realized that I was wrong. If you have two hands, then with a 99% probability you will not have difficulty installing spirals. The ends of the cotton wool are quite comfortable to be installed in the well due to the heap of free space inside. 
Medusa Reborn RDTA by GeekVape - very, very ambiguous
By the way, the size of the holes is decent, so we can try to put something big here, but I didn’t do that for one simple reason – body heating. Even with a brief soaring, the case heats up. No, I understand that this is a slight heating – this is normal, but in this atomizer everything is completely different, even the 810th Drip type from Ultem does not help. Plus, there is one too – it is impossible to soar without stopping, because you have to pause 
Medusa Reborn RDTA by GeekVape - very, very ambiguous
There is practically nothing to say about the blowing system here – two slots for air intake from both sides and adjusting the tightening when scrolling top cap. I practically did not use the adjustment and hovered on fully open slots. I have always appreciated the transfer of taste, rather than the amount of steam, in atomizers. I admit, I didn’t count on good taste transfer in Medusa Reborn , but it turned out to be wrong. In my opinion, the atomizer turned out to be quite tasty, and this I did not even experiment with winding and doing well with standard clapton.

At the same time, on the Internet you can stumble upon rather negative reviews about the quality of taste. Just remember that the taste and color of the markers are different. As for the amount of steam, then, as I said, I was not particularly perverted in terms of windings, but the pair was enough for me, but with time it gets too hot and I have to pause. 
Medusa Reborn RDTA by GeekVape - very, very ambiguous

Now we have come to the point that I most disliked in this atomizer – the refueling system. According to the manufacturer, RDTAholds as much as 3.5 ml of liquid. I do not know how much liquid there really fits, but a lot of manure just pours out when I try to fill the device. The first time I thought I was doing something wrong. It turned out that “so” does not happen here at all. In order to fill in the liquid, you need to remove the cover and try to “climb” between the cotton swab, wall, stand, etc. 

As you can guess, the process is not the most pleasant. One of my most hated moments in servicing atomizers (first place is a finger pierced by a wire) is liquid on the table, hands, the device itself, but not where it is needed. The problem is almost solved using vials in a very narrow neck, but discomfort is still unavoidable.

Medusa Reborn RDTA by GeekVape - very, very ambiguous
That is, in fact, all that I can tell you about this atomizer. For myself, I firmly decided that I will not use it – I just simply uncomfortable. At the same time, I understand that there are enough users for whom the device will like, maybe this applies to you. 

Lush Plus RDA by Wotofo – with an eye-catching base

Apparently, the company Wotofo and does not think to stop. About six months ago, the manufacturer announced the release of more than 20 new devices. But even after the avalanche of new products has passed, Wotofo still continues to actively fill the market with its products. From the latter, we can recall The Troll RTA and Serpent Alto . Well, now again came the turn of drips. Meet Lush plus . The novelty is a continuation of the series of Lush Lush ( Lush , Lush mini ), but it has no even minimal similarities with previous atomizers. For this reason, Lush plus 25 mmis of particular interest to users.

Lush plus RDA by Wotofo

This is the case when I do not understand the directionality of the device. On the one hand, the producer literally screams that the taste will be simply divine. On the other hand, I see which spirals are installed in this database and I understand that it can also “pile up” as well! Okay, with this question let the future owners of dripka understand, and we will move on to the performance characteristics.

Lush plus RDA by Wotofo

As in most cases, the most interesting lies under the lid. After removing it, we find a rather interesting base on four racks. Despite its unusual nature, the base should be convenient enough to install spirals into it. The holes in the racks measure 2.3 by 2.5 mm, which will allow the owner to practically not limit himself with the windings. The legs of the spirals are held on top with powerful cross-head screws. By the way, some sources mention that the screws are made of titanium.

For the entry of air into the evaporation chamber there are four slots measuring 4.3 to 2 mm on both sides of the housing. Directly to the spirals, air enters through the nozzles inside the base itself. Usually, I have a negative attitude to such “divided” blows, and I prefer solid slots. But in this case, I do not even doubt the possibilities of blowing. Air for your spirals will be enough. I almost forgot – there is no airflow adjustment

I like the Wotofo desiremove away from standards, and offer the public unusual devices. Although the novelty does not have any unreal innovations, it still looks favorably close to the competitors. I do not think that the manufacturer may have problems with the promotion and further implementation of this product, too many people are already interested in such a purchase. 

WOTOFO SERPENT ALTO RTA TANK REVIEW

The Full Serpent Alto Tank Review

The Serpent Alto RTA Tank by WotofoThe Wotofo Serpent Alto RTA is a single-coil atomiser with an e-juice tank that does not require expert adjustment to get vaping satisfaction – RTA tanks are designed to produce a clean and tasteful vapor, but does this product match up with the best tanks on the market? Let’s take a look.

 

The Serpent Alto RTA Up Close and Personal

The expertly machined Serpent Alto is made from stainless steel and Pyrex with black finishing. It’s sleek and sexy with impressive build quality for the price. The base diameter is 22mm which means it will fit perfectly on most of the new powerful mods like the Sigelei Kaos Spectrum but is also suited to the smaller mods like the SMOK G80.  The total size is a titch shorter than the Serpent at 38mm high and 22mm diameter with 2.5ml juice capacity.

Serpent Alto showing top-filling tank

Top Filling Tank

The top-filling tank has two generous kidney holes for easy refilling without battling those awkward air bubbles that can form in single-opening tanks. The Serpent Alto’s diameter has remained the same as the Mini, but because it is 1 mm shorter, the Serpent Alto’s tank capacity has lost 0.5ml. It now takes only 2.5ml e-juice, which is still adequate for average vapers.

Wotofo has replaced the Mini’s stainless steel drip tip with a new stay-cool Delrin drip tip and top cap assembly which is somewhat narrower at 0.7mm.  The Delrin drip tip doesn’t get hot even at high watts and can be removed and replaced with your favourite drip tip version as the threads are a standard 510.

 

Active Airflow

The Aireflow on the Wotofo Serpent AltoThe Serpent Alto’s airflow is slightly wider than on the Mini and can be adjusted to produce either throat or lung hits by manipulating the airflow rings. There is a pin to prevent the airflow from opening too wide or rotating 360 degrees by accident.  Unfortunately, you need to open the atomiser to make the adjustment, and some users find the rings a little tight in the beginning.  However, this small inconvenience soon passes as you find your ideal settings.

Decking It Out

Building on the Wotofo Alto RTA is pretty easy as the mounting deck has been redesigned. The more efficient airflow now has two air inlets just under the coil, positioned one on each side of the single coil vertical terminal configuration in a small chamber. The Mini had a small risk of short-circuiting when the coil leads were too long, but this problem has been eliminated in the Serpent Alto.

Also, the Wotofo Serpent Alto’s terminal holes are now only 2 mm wide, and you won’t be able to accidentally use complex high-resistance wires as the port holes won’t accept them. You receive two pre-made twisted Kanthal coils with your new tank.

Wicking It Down

Fluff the cotton and trim just at the edge of the build deck above the wick holes. Remember to bevel the ends a little with a diagonal cut and tuck the edges into the holes. Tuck down the wick on either side, top it with e-liquid, and you are on! For top filling atomisers, you should always take care to close the airflow holes to stop the liquid from seeping out.  The Serpent Alto RTA Box showing full kitOnce the wicks are embedded, you just refill and go.

 

REAL BENEFITS FOR REAL PEOPLE

  • Mini tank with a moderate 2.5ml capacity
  • Easy deck build and easy wicking
  • Excellent flavour for single coil lovers with a lovely dense cloud
  • Runs cool up to 50W, although the cooling ribs still keep it pleasant after that.

OVERALL

The Wotofo Serpent Alto RTA can hold its own among all the other mini flavor-chase tanks in the market with its thoroughly satisfying cloud density, top taste and no leaking.  As with the Wotofo Troll RTA, the shallow grub screws could have been stronger, but decking and wicking are not max-muscle manoeuvres so careful handling will keep it intact for a long time.  The Serpent Alto’s single coil comes out at 0.36 ohms (unless you use your own) and goes well with modest mods with a 30-50W output.  It is an excellent choice for new taste-chasers and all lovers of single coil vaping.
