Review of boxing mod Sigelei TOP 1 Mod

Introduction

Sigelei company does not stop “stamping” new devices and almost every month another new product from a well-known brand enters the market.

But unlike its main competitors – the company Smok Tech, Sigelei rarely put failing devices on the market, the majority of their devices pass quality control and due to this Sigelei still, after all these years, remains one of the leaders modostroeniya.

Looking ahead, at once I will make a reservation that Top 1 was no exception, it is an excellent workhorse with a correctly working board. Of course, it didn’t go without minuses, but in this case they are not critical.

But about everything in order, let’s go through the technical part, the package bundle, and afterwards we proceed to a more detailed analysis of the box-mod.

Equipment

The mod comes to us in a pretty tin box, identical with the packaging of Snowwolf Vfeng. On the front side of the package we are met by the silhouette of a fashion and the very name Sigelei Top 1. Behind, in addition to technical information, there is a sticker confirming the authenticity of the device.

Package includes:

  • Box mod Sigelei Top 1
  • User’s manual
  • USB cable
  • Warranty card

Impressions of use

Top 1 is a mod with a rather unusual design, I would even say with an “amateur” design, or, more precisely, a “motorist” design. The fashion screen is stylized as a race car speedometer, the rear part of the body is made in an identical style and resembles the supercar logo. Obviously, the novelty from Sigelei will appeal to car fans and enthusiasts.

In the case of fashion there are carbon and chromium inserts, and the first and second ones I don’t particularly quote when it comes to box mods. Chrome steel has the ability to “peel off” after a couple of weeks of use and gives the device a cheaper look. And it would seem that by all the external parameters of Top 1, I definitely “will not go in,” but, paradoxically, everything worked out exactly the opposite.

Initially, having unpacked the mod, I already rolled my eyes and hit my face with the palm, but as soon as I screwed / unwind a few atomizers to catch myself thinking that outwardly, Top 1 suits me more than completely.

The device looks very harmoniously in conjunction with almost any atomizer, whether it’s a tank or a drip. In particular, I came across a bunch of Sigelei Top 1 + Bravo RTA from Wotofo, which by coincidence came to me with a red acrylic drip-type, the color is in color with the back panel of the mod.

In constant use of the device, I spent a little more than a week, referring to this fact, I would not treat this article as a full review, but would rather refer to the “First Look” section. Anyway, I managed to reveal a few points in this box, both positive and negative.

Today we will start with the positive aspects:

  • The first thing I would like to mention in Sigelei Top 1 is an instant response to pressing the FIRE button. According to the manufacturer, the mod begins to “fry” after 0.8 seconds and I have no reason to doubt it. Spending parallels with Smok Tech again, just a couple of days ago the Mag Kit came to me and from the very first launch of the mod, the period of time waiting for the spirals to warm up seemed simply endless compared to the Sigelei box. It was because of the slow response when you press FIRE, a couple of years ago I completely moved to mechanical devices. And although, to this day, the mechanic was found guilty of stealing my heart, I am pleased with the fact that the mods on the board are progressing and do not stand still.
  • Already in that review in a row, I praise the ergonomics of the device and, in connection with Top 1, this is aerobatics. Due to the smooth expansion of the upper half of the case, the mod confidently lies in the hand and does not try to jump out at the right time. Just put a plus, for the lack of sharp edges on the body and the convenient location of the button.
  • For me, the fact that the connector for the box-mod is located in the middle of the case automatically throws the coin into the benefit box of the device. In all the latest releases from Sigelei and its sister enterprises, which fell into my hands, the connector is located exactly in the middle and atomizers with a diameter of up to 30 mm sit on the box like a glove, without overhangs. As the owner and fan of Steamcrave’s Aromamizer RDTA, this is definitely a nice addition.
  • Charging with a current output of 2.5 Amps is definitely plus Top 1 and although most of us use Nitecore and Efest charges, the ability to quickly charge via USB is a pretty nice and useful feature of the box mod.
  • Finally, I will note a simple and clear menu on the display. To exit to the settings, you will need to press the FIRE button three times and then you can change the mode of operation, set the pre-heating settings of the spirals, set the time, and also change the “screen theme”. Simple, convenient and reliable.

Here we come to the minuses of this box-mod, which also have a place to be:

  • The build quality of the box-mod is hardly flawless. No critical moments were noticed, but the first thing that catches the eye when changing batteries is the lid itself. Many people remember the first Cuboid from Joyetech, and so in the Sigelei Top 1, the battery cover in the open state reel like a tumbler. I did not notice any backlash in the closed state, but how long this lid will last is unknown.
  • Without looking at the fact that the heating up of the spirals when pressing the FIRE button occurs instantly, it is worth adding that the board’s response to the output in the settings menu is sooooo slow. Pressing the FIRE button 3 times to change any settings, the wait for entering the menu can go up to three seconds. Of course, this drawback cannot be called a global problem, but take my word for it, this is simply annoying. Especially when, by inertia, after a second, you click on FIRE three more times and turn off the mod completely. By the way, with on / off delay is identical.
  • I have repeatedly “scolded” the company for large displays in box mods. I have a smartphone, with excellent color rendering and resolution, against its background all these huge color displays in vap devices look, at least, ridiculous and nobody needs fucking. Add to the screen ala “hello from 2007” meaningless waste of battery life, as well as an increased risk of damage to the screen when the mod is falling and you realize that the profit in such displays is slightly less than zero. Vanguey, that by 2019 a “App Store” with applications will appear in the mods.

Conclusion

Without taking into account some errors of Top 1, the mod came out as a worthy device on the board, which stands out from the gray mass of devices with its appearance and work without any special errors. If you are not confused by the design of this box, I confidently recommended it for purchase.

Smoant Karat Pod Starter Kit Preview – Will It Be A Gem?

The Karat Pod Starter Kit By Smoant Previewed

The Smoant Karat Pod Starter kit is a new Pod Mod kit following on from their other pod kit the Smoant S8.

karat pod kit poster

Pod mods are handy little devices to have around – for starters or even more long term vapers as they can dish out a nice quick nicotine hit without being bulky or chucking out super size clouds.karat components

With a pod mod you use high nicotine e-liquid or even better Nic salts – so the device can be lower powered and therefore a smaller battery.smoant karat pod range

The internal battery on the Karat pod mod is 370mAh – which is the lower end of average for most pod mods.karat pod in rainbow

There is a constant output of 3.4V and this fires up the 1.3ohm resistance coil located in the pod. The coil is apparently a new style “Quartz” coil which from the marketing images looks to be an almost honeycomb metal structure. The more surface area in contact with the e-liquid means the better the vapour.karat quartz coil

The pod also holds the e-liquid and is refillable via the bottom filling plugs.karat pod

A magnetic connection holds the pod securely in the battery part but is easy enough to pull out to change the pod or refill. Once the coil is past its best you simply discard the pod and install a new one.karat magnetic connection

There are 5 colours to choose from – Bronze Blue, Black, Gun-metal, Rainbow and Radiant Blue.karat pod mod colours

  • Smoant Pod device and pod

KangerTech Five 6 Kit Review

KangerTech has had a great career of 10 years as innovators who had brought us some of the best Clearomizers, i.e. the pro-tank series, and then of course – one of the first sub-ohm tanks with interchangeable coils and RBA. KangerTech was pretty quiet in the last few months however to announce the release of the FIVE- 6 implies that the company is not only in the game of vaping, but also look to push the boundaries. As the name already shows, the KangerTech FIVE have the five 15650 batteries and this device can reach a maximum power of 222W with integrated power bank.

KangerTech Five 6 Kit Review

Kit Content and Specifications

Kit Content Specifications
Two coils (3 x 0.6ohm coil parallel) Size: 94mm x 57mm x 40mm
1 x 6 FIVE tank Weight: 160g
1 x 6 FIVE MOD Material: aluminum alloy
1 x replacement Pyrex (sensitive glass transition temperature) Output power: 222W max
1 set of crystal gasket Battery: Five 18650
1 x manual Length: 50 mm
Diameter: 29 mm
Capacity: 8 ml
Pyrex glass interchangeable
Power: 5W – 222W

First Impression

Recently, however, it seems that Kanger has struggled to remain relevant – definitely for me. Kanger has contributed to my early success of the damage reduction; it hurts me to say that I have not seriously considered a topical product of Kanger with great interest lately. This is changing today. Starting with mod Five6, we have an unprecedented 5-cell 18650 controls (Power-plant) attached to the frame top and aluminum alloy. You need to charge your phone? Definitely! The Five6 would oblige.

Looking at Five6 tank is a feeling such that when looking at a large SMOK TFV8. The same aesthetics, the same flip cover, the same adjustable floor flow of air, with greater capacity of 8 ml.

Coils can be selected by the user and each interchangeable header contains three double coils and can actually select the tank to run with two, four or six coils – with the same screw head arrangement. Oh, and did I mention that the glass containers darken when the temperature rises? Yes, it does well.

The Five6 kit comes in a variety of colors,

  • Black
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Blue

You could find it more online.

Features

  • Easy access, no leakage, top filling line
  • Construction of a double coil
  • 3 selectable integrated coils
  • Maximum power of 6 coils
  • Smart glass, which changes its color depending on the temperature
  • Selectable coils, indicated by a LED light
  • A patented KangerTech design
  • A large 222W power bench for the day!
  • 5 18650 batteries have a light aluminum frame

Power/Performance

With Five6 Kit, Kanger seems to break with this design strategy and reach the most modern Vape for lovers. While Five6 5 cell delivers high power and unprecedented autonomy, it also comes with a charge and the weight of Five6 kit is 255g, furthermore, when the batteries are added, it tipped the scales at about 475g. For comparison, my lost Vape triad weighs 408g fully loaded with three batteries and a dual Geekvape Ammit. An RX300 Wismec similarly configured (not tested) strong 500g. I’m not sure it would consider one of these portable. Each individual “Tiger” coil has three dual configurations and you can choose how many of them want to “open” the Vape – two on four or six. It has a small switch around the base of the tank the number of rollers with small LED light shows to be used to determine which to be activated.

Pros & Cons

Pros Cons
Smart and Stylish Changing the coils with a full tank can be difficult
Define and pleasant finish
Good performance
Good In Weight
Selectable Coils (up-to 6)
No Leakage
Excellent Power Output

Long story short – Summary

I do not know if the actual model can be used with another container if this is not enough, the dark glass containers also change color depending on the temperature of the Vape. While the first five reports on the 18650 configuration show like the real model is extremely easy – not as hard as you might think. The KangerTech FIVE 6 will be available in black, red, yellow, green and blue – I believe that each case can be purchased individually so you can change its color.

Review:eleaf iJust 3

With iJust 3, Eleaf updates its survival kit for the powerful vape. The recipe is known: a clearomizer dedicated to powervaping (here Ello Duro), screwed on a batterywithout adjustment in tube format. It’s simple, quite discreet in a pocket, and it can vape big clouds without worrying about settings or coils construction .

Radical !


The set comes in a well-organized rigid cardboard box, which also contains seals and a spare tank, additional resistance, a USB cable and a relatively complete manual.

The clearomiser Ello Duro does not usurp his name: his vape is hard! The steam is abundant, the hitvery powerful, the flavors are a little sacrificed on this altar, but they are not ridiculous either: one recognizes its liquids. Compared to a TFV12, the vape is more brutal, more vigorous, radical, especially since there is no power setting to calm the game.

The flow of air can be free, it can breathe in without missing oxygen, but its adjustment is progressive, a direct vape restricted to a vape very aerial, which allows to vary the vape, lukewarm open, warmer by closing.

In the end,  the Ello  Duro  provides a muscular vape, with a stronger hit than its competitors. E n  large, it  mounts the hit up a notch compared to nicotine:  a 3  mg will be  close to a 6 mg on another atomizer , which can be convenient for sensations while keeping nicotine low.

 

The liveliness of the steam is probably due to the resistances provided, which I thought for a moment made of mesh , but which, on closer inspection, are in fact made of perforated Kanthal grids . We are more on a kind of ” notch coil ” than on a mesh. And indeed, the feeling of vape is not the same: the mesh is softer, this grid is more hairy. I measured 0.16  ohm, which would give us a theoretical power of approximately 100  W when the battery is fully charged, and a current of 25  A . 

In fact, the battery is electronically protected, and provides only 80  W  at full power, which virtually eliminates the risk of drift.

Moreover, the kit is actually quite discreet, the size of a mechanical mod (below, it is compared to an iStick Pico Eleaf + Kylin, and a tube Wismec + Zeus). It fits easily in a pocket or small bag, and the firing button is wide, easy to handle with both index finger and thumb.

Ello Duro does not leak when used regularly, but it can do it a little, if it is allowed to sit for 24 hours with liquid in its tank. The construction seems solid and the finishes are good, the kit does not demerit against other setups.

This kit is therefore exclusively dedicated to the aerial vape with high power, around 80 W, its consumption is important, both in liquid and energy: even if the capacity of the battery is large (3000 mAh) it is necessary recharge it in the day.

In use, the tube iJust 3 has a small defect, not serious for the vape, but boring as a scruple. For the ancient Romans, who walked in sandals, a scruple is the little pebble that slips between the foot and the sandal, and that annoys! It was the minute France Culture … back to this battery: under the firing button, an LED is supposed to inform about the state of the battery (on or off), and the remaining charge in the battery (color ). But its light can be seen only by the thin day between the button and the body of the mod. Moreover, it is not very powerful, result: we only see it at night. In broad daylight, it is almost impossible to see this indication, it’s nerd.

IJust3 battery (x1), Ello Duro clearomizer (x1), HW-N resistance 0.2 ohm (x1), HW-M resistor 0.15 ohm, micro USB cable (x1), spare parts kit (x1), user manuals (x2).

The battery in detail

The battery is built-in, rechargeable using a USB cord on a phone charger or PC, and it is possible to vape while charging. It’s simple and it’s made for.

The connection is obviously in the format 510, so it is possible to use another atomizer on the mod. The decoration is rather successful, with on the ass a kind of Occitan cross that will please the southerners. A degassing hole can save the situation in case of runaway chemistry.

Ello Duro in detail

It is built in a classic way, with a curved tank, capable of holding 6.5 ml, all the same. The drip tip provided is resin, quite successful for my taste. Its construction is robust, and finishes quite honest.

It is simply disassembled, unscrewing the base, which welcomes the resistance. A large black seal prevents any leakage between the base and the tank.

The filling is done from the top, sliding the top of the hat. Interesting tip, at first sight the filling joint does not seem open: in fact it is equipped with a lid, split in the middle, which deviates when you insert the tip of a vial. It thus preserves the cleanliness of the surface under the top cap : even turning over the atomizer, the liquid will not pass.

In short, in terms of construction, this kit is perfect, very practical to use, and reliable. 
Its only limit is its vape type, radical: it is perfect for those seeking a powerful vape, aerial and spicy.

Vaporous considerations on the interest of batteries without adjustment

Several manufacturers now offer kits of this kind: powerful atomizers equipped with a non-adjustable battery. Is it relevant for this type of vape? 
From my point of view, not without troubleshooting, it is better to have an electronic box that can be adjusted power and change the battery when you are far from any power outlet.

Manufacturers offer this type of battery for two reasons: first it is cheaper and it allows them to display an attractive price, then it allows them to communicate on the ease of use: no adjustment, no decision of head.

OK … Would we be so bad? Most vapoteurs are holders of the driving license, they know how to use a machine of a ton and a half, of 4 meters on 2, in the middle of other machines of the same ilk launched at speeds more or less big, with a steering wheel, mirrors, 2 or 3 pedals, buttons galore, a GPS, a gearshift and kids screaming in the back …

By becoming vapers, the same people would not be able to use 2 buttons to adjust the power of their vape, nor to open a hatch to change a battery? No, that does not hold, and the argument of the price is also misleading: by putting 20 € more, one can have an electronic mod, it is the price of 2 packs of cigarettes, the investment and largely profitable. In short, batteries without settings seem interesting in troubleshooting, but we can be more fun by using an electronic box on a daily basis.

In summary

 WE love

  • The radical vape
  • The quality of construction
  • The capacity of 3000 mAh
  • The ergonomics and simplicity of mod.

 We do not like

  • The radical vape
  • The invisible LED
  • The lack of power adjustment

Conclusion

The Eleaf iJust 3 Kit is designed to provide a radical, powerful and pungent vape for thrill seekers. Its 3000 mAh battery holds half a day of vape at 70 W, its production of steam is worthy of the stars of the cloud, and the flavors are not completely killed in passing. It has the defects of its qualities: it is impossible to go quiet on this battery. But with an electronic box, it can be more flexible.

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.

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.
