SMOK TFV12 Tank Review

The name’s 12 – TFV12 and I’m here to drink ya juice and create a storm cloud – and I’m all out of juice – literally.

cloud beast king review

Yup say hello to the SMOK TFV12 Cloud Beast King and trust me guys n gals this is a cloud chucking behemoth.

It’s the obvious choice if you fancy yourself as a human volcano or have a yearning to become a new Marvel superhero – let’s call him Pea Souper Man.

This monster claims to be the King of the sub ohm tanks – or as I call it the sub Oh My God tank lol.

Now as an aside you might be one of those vapers that think a coil capable of hitting 350 watts is ridiculous.

I hear you – I mean just how far does vaping need to go before someone says STOP!

But hey I think we’re missing the point here.

Vaping – apart from being the best way to quit smoking – is also fun!

And as a believer in freedom – and I mean real libertarian freedom – then I say whatever floats your boat.

I mean just because the SMOK TFV12 coils hit 350 watts don’t mean you have to hit those heights – or rush out and buy a vape mod that can handle it right?

But I’m digressing as usual – let’s see if we can fight our way through the fog and take a look at the ‘controversial’ Smok TFV12 Cloud Beast King.

In the Box

It’s your usual Smok packaging as in a colourful sleeve featuring a volcano spewing lava with a nice photo of the TFV12 front and center.

It’s a big bugger let’s put it that way.

Key Features of the Smok TFV12

OK apart from the 6ml bucket sized e-liquid capacity the key feature here has to be the coil that has split the vaping world.

The TVF12-T12 coil has the revolutionary duodenary head – duodenary btw is the word used to relate to the number 12 – so in this case the 12 refers to the amount of cylinders within the coil if that makes sense.

cloud beast king coil heads

Anyway it’s this monster coil that has caused some vapers to get their panties in a twist.

As I’ve already said if folks want to vape at 350 watts then so what?

If they can and it’s safe then more power to your clouds mate.

Personally it’s not something I can see myself doing – though [and this is the truth] for the purpose of this review I went out and bought a Wismec RX200S to see if the TFV12 Cloud Beast King vapes OK maxing out as I did at 250watts – more on that in a bit.

So apart from blowing enough clouds to blot out the sun on whatever continent you live what else has this beast to offer?

cloud beast king larger fill port

To be honest Smok has stayed true to the rest of the Cloud Beast family – it looks the same [apart from extra chunky knurling] – however the juice fill hole is considerably larger.

I know from experience it was a bit of a pain fitting larger glass drippers into that hole.

Otherwise it is what it is a bigger version of the TFV8 Cloud Beast – bigger in every sense given it’s as big if not bigger than my mini mods lol.

Design and Build Quality

It reminds me of a tractor or an off roader given its chunky knurling.

Now that’s not a bad thing – I like off roaders lol – but first looks makes you realize this is indeed a serious piece of kit.

Like pretty much all Smok products [I did say ‘pretty much’ lol] it’s wonderfully put together with nice machining.

Straight outa the box things are a little stiff but once juiced up the threads move nicely.

The absolutely ginormous airflow ring spins with just enough resistance to keep it in place – but it does keep on turning as there’s no catch to keep it in place. But like I said once you’ve set your preferred setting it pretty much stays in place.

cloud beast king airflow

As you might expect the coils themselves have huge juice fill ports of varying shapes and sizes with the V12-Q4 having funky looking lightning bolts instead of your run of the mill slits.

Not sure if that did anything to the cloud production or taste if I’m honest and personally I thought it looked a bit daft and the kind of logo Pea Souper Man might have on his costume

Everything comes apart easily for cleaning and Smok includes a 510 drip tip adaptor should you wish to use your own.

How Does the SMOK TFV12 Perform?

Now anyone who says vaping doesn’t set off smoke alarms needs to go and talk to my 20 or so neighbours.

I live in a newly built set of flats [apartments if you’re posh] with state of the art fire alarms.

cloud beast king components

Now with both my large windows wide open I took a few pulls on the V12-T12 coil and within seconds my pretty large room was filled with vapor.

Unlike any other clouds I’ve created before this vapor just seemed to hang there!

I waved my arms around like a loon for a bit and if I’m honest it was like boxing candy floss!

Boy is the vapor dense!

Anyway – long story short – I spent the next half an hour tooting away on the three different coils and absolutely loving it – so much so I had a big stupid grin on my face the whole time – vaping on the TFV12 is fun!

Call the Fire Brigade!

However.

I opened the door to visit the bathroom and within 3 seconds the fire alarm in the building was triggered and holy crap is it loud!

Cue disgruntled neighbours in their PJs with little wide eyed kids crying on the landings.

Ooops.

They knew it was me as the readout was flashing my flat number for all to see. I guess opening the door and seeing a huge grey sweet smelling cloud filling the hallways was a bit of a giveaway too lol.

Anyway if that doesn’t show you how the SMOK TFV12 performs then nothing will.

The vapor production is intense – it’s thick – dense and seems to have substance lol.

Flavour wise I’ve not been that impressed with the Baby Beast or the Big Baby Beast if I’m honest – but Smok seems to have cracked it with the coils I tried.

V12-T12 Coil

v12-t12

OK after letting this soak for a good twenty minutes I took it from 100watts to 250watts.

At 100watts it was a cold vape but with a decent flavour. The clouds were impressive to say the least and absolutely smashed the vapor production from the Big Baby Beast.

However once I’d gone through the gears so to speak I hit the 250watts and just Wow!

Never mind clouds for days or weeks we’re talking no sun for months lol.

And at 180 watts the flavour was absolutely stunning.

V12-X4

v12-x4

By far the most sensible [haha] of the coils you get with the kit coming in with a sweet spot of around 120watts.

Once again cloud production was phenomenal and the taste as good as I’ve tasted on a Smok stock coil – yeah even as good as the flavoursome low wattage SMOK Brit tank lol.

I did try to max this one at out 200watts and things got a little warm with the flavour dipping considerably giving me not quite a dry hit but the threat of one.

V12-Q4

v12-q4

This is the coil with the lightning bolt cut-out juice flow holes so I was expecting fireworks from this one.

I took this beauty from 60watts to its max of 190watts in 20 watt increments.

At the lower end clouds were amazing whilst taste was weak.

I didn’t like the vape at 190watts as again it bordered on the threat of a dry hit – not that I got one but I wouldn’t chain vape at that wattage if you catch my drift.

However at 165watts the taste on this coils blew me away – it absolutely zinged off my tongue with clouds to die for!

As to the longevity of the coils I am currently reviewing Smok’s AL85 kit that comes with the Baby Beast tank.

It might be my bad luck but I am getting no flavour and tons [I mean tons] of dry hits after just one day with both the coils included in the kit – see my review soon.

I have used 70/30 and 80/20 VG and PG e-liquids on the SMOK TFV12 coils and a week later they are all performing and wicking well – and that’s using them every single night at high wattage.

Innokin EQ Starter Kit Review

Hello Sup Vapers, Lorenzo is here again. Today we will talk about one of the many Pod Mods that are coming out recently – the Innokin EQ Starter Kit.

Thanks to Innokin and Cloris from Innokin marketing department, I had the possibility to review the Innokin EQ Pod Mod.

Innokin EQ Packaging List 

Inside the package we will find: 

  • EQ Battery
  • Refillable Pod
  • Micro USB Cable
  • User Manual
  • User Packet

Innokin EQ Starter Kit Specs and Features 

  • Size: 90 x 35 x 15 mm
  • Capacity: 2 ml
  • Battery: 3.7V/Built-in 800 mAh
  • Standby current: 50 uA max
  • Maximum current: 9.5 A
  • Charging current: 5 V/0.5 A (EST. time: 2 h)
  • Coil: Plexus 0.15 ohm Coil
  • Plexus EQ coil for MTL vape
  • Adjustable regular/boost mode
  • Ultra-compact design
  • Superior flavor and lifespan
  • Large heating area
  • The first mesh type MTL coil

Innokin EQ Starter Kit ReviewTechnically speaking we have an 800 mAh battery with a fast recharge system and a very cool easy to fill system so with the mod comes only one 0.5 ohm Pod with Plexus coils and a capacity of 2ml any way you easily find online or on Innokin website other pods for only 5 dollars.

We will also have a boost mod that we can activate just keeping pressed the fire button while the battery is off so we will be able to choose between Red (15W) and White (13.5) even with the boost on the coil performance and duration will be incredible with also a really fast activation but most importantly the flavor will remain almost nice as without the boost.

The hit isn’t bad and we will definitely have a mouth to lung vaping style. Anyway, the production of the cloud is really good. The innovative refill system will prevent any leak and will give you the possibility to choose which e-liquid to use.

The pod is ultra-compact and stay really well inside the hand and it comes in 5 colors (Grey, Black, Purple, Blue, Red).

Innokin EQ Starter Kit Review

Innokin EQ Pros and Cons

Cons:

  • First of all the tank is a little bit too dark and it is hard to see the liquid level besides that it looks really nice.
  • The Kit comes with only one pod (that’s a big con, if someone is going to buy this product as a customer and he finds a defective pods he won’t be able to try it he surely won’t be happy about that, we are also habituated to get at least 2 coils when we buy each type of atomizer).
  • If you try to do a long hit the pod will sing!
  • Fire Button problems.

Pros:

  • Really Compact
  • Fill method
  • No leaking
  • Paint
  • Look and feel nice
  • No Condensation
  • Nice MTL Hit
  • Switch between Boost Mod and Not
  • Nice Flavour (One of the best on market)
  • Plexus Coils
  • Battery Capacity
  • Good Price

Conclusion

So, guys, that’s it. In the end, I can say that this product is one of the Best Pod Vapes in the market, definitely superior to some other types of pods.

It is well studied and well made with really good quality materials. Again the refill system is one of the best and easier to use on the market. The price is affordable and the duration of the coil is good. In a word, the power mod can give you some satisfaction that may miss in a normal mod.

I will definitely buy some of those AIOs to give them to some of my friends that are still smoking coffin nails (Coffin Nail = Cigarette).

Augvape “VTEC” V200 – your new engine

In general, Augvape harnesses the wrong word for a long time. We began to feed us with “tales” about this novelty in early December, and there is still no information on the official website.

Without further ado, I present Augvape “VTEC” V200 to you .

Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
Equipment
– VTEC 200W mod
– USB cable
– user manual
– warranty card

As you probably already understood, the designers were inspired by the legendary VTEC engine, which was completed, and maybe even now Honda cars.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
I must say that they did it perfectly, I mean, to create a box mod that quite well resembles the cylinder block of the aforementioned engine. Here you and the inscription characteristic, and stylized under the control button fill cap, and, of course, decorative bolts, as if fixing the two halves of the device. Similarity or stylization under the cylinder block is right on Pyaterochka.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
If we ignore the basic idea of ​​design, we can see that ergonomics should not be bad – the box is rather narrow. But the protruding edges on the sides will obviously dug into the palm, but then excuse me, we wanted a “true design” – get it. In general, the exterior is not overloaded – the device looks quite interesting and harmonious.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
The thickness of the boxing fashion “horse”, that’s what I need, and the fact that large atoms here will feel particularly comfortable. We should also note the landing pad connector. It is stylized as a “pattern” of a cast-wheel disc of a sports car – and again it does not look good, but quite fit. It turns out that designers do not get paid for it in vain.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
Get down to the control panel. The usual control buttons are replaced by a spinning wheel – original and, as for me, much more convenient than the usual construct.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
But there is another point – this wheel is issued outside the casing of the mod, and therefore it will constantly “unauthorized” rotate when pushed into a pocket or bag, and you never know where. Perhaps this will not be a problem, since usually the device is removed already turned off, i.e. spinning the wheel will not change any settings.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
Next, the screen – it is not catchy, not color. The information on it is not large, but sufficient, everything that is needed is available.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
And now, for me personally, a frightening moment. The developers say about some hidden button fire, the reception on the body is really not visible. And here I came across one photo on the social networks of the manufacturer – we look.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
If you look at see some kind of LED, and a dark spot is slightly higher than it under the stack. If this is a fire button, then it comes out touch. Here, dismiss how such a constructive button can be made in a “such” fashion. This is the internal combustion engine of a sports car – power, power, buttons, levers … Yes, such a “cool” button is asked for a fire, this is just like a gas pedal for a car – the most important thing in a car. I do not even talk about alleged problems in its use, such as possible incorrect work, pressing in gloves may not be available at all. In short, if this proves true, then I wash my hands. I can not remember offhand examples of such a construct and experience of its operation.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
The lid of the battery compartment is movable and folding, well, well, I will not even speak. In addition to this photo did not find anything, so sorry.
Augvape VTEC V200 - your new engine ...
The performance is sufficient – it remains to wait for the tests, because nothing is known about the control chipset, the manufacturer is unlikely to have attended to the release of its own design.

Build Quality & Design

I received the Geekvape Aegis Mini kit in the Black and Green version.

It is beautiful!!

The colour match between the green accents on the mod and the ones on the tank looks incredible too!

This is so so so gorgeous in real life.Aegis mini kit side views

Little details such as the stitching on the hand grip panel – exactly like the larger versions. The colour of the stitching matches the metal mod accents and the tank accents perfectly.aegis mini grip

This tiny little mod gives you the feel of a perfectly created miniature replica!aegis mini kit size comparison

Every little detail is smaller and even cuter on this!aegis mini mod view

On the side of the mod is the screen which is clear and bright no issues with this at all. The adjustment buttons are below the screen and are the clicky-est-tap-dancing-shoe-noise buttons I think I have ever encountered!

aegis mini screenThe fire button is above the screen and is really small. It doesn’t have the “Rocker” switch style the bigger Aegis versions have. But perfectly responsive I just keep missing it as it is small!aegis mini buttons

The spring loaded 510 connector on the top of the mod is held in with 3 visible screws but all seems secure and no problems here. Measuring across the 510 I would say 26mm tanks should fit on here without overhang and possibly up to 28mm diameter.aegis mini mod top view

On the base of the mod is the battery vent holes and the plug which you remove to access the USB charging port.aegis mini mod base

The body has a rubbery feel and it does attract fluff, but it is lovely to hold and the metallic accents and leather panel all fit perfectly. Please excuse all the fluff this has accumulated over the 2 weeks in use. Just to make it worse the tank keeps leaking so wiping the mod with a tissue is turning it into a fluffball too!

But one tip I have found a simple rinse under the tap will remove all the fluff!

I have had a few leaks from this tank when I first filled up. I took the base off the tank and found the installed coil was loose – so make sure to check that before you first fill up.cerberus tank dismantled

However as time went by I still get leaks when the mod is tipped over – even when taking the photos for this review I was mopping up behind it.aegis mini damage

I didn’t fancy the Freezing in the freezer test as you cannot remove the battery from this model which made me poo my pants a bit at the thought of it expanding and becoming damaged.

Also I will leave the mod to dry for a few days – as some times circuit board damage only shows up when it starts to rust.

Set-up Guide

The mod and tank arrive in the box separately. You will need to fill the tank, charge the battery and screw them both together. Then away you go…

Mod Basic operation

  • Turn mod on or off = 5 clicks of the fire button
  • To lock/unlock mod = hold + and – adjustment buttons down at the same time. You can still fire the mod but the adjustment buttons are locked. A small padlock symbol will be displayed on the screen.
  • To enter the Menu = press the fire button quickly 3 times.
  • To exit the Menu = press and hold the fire button or wait 5 seconds without pressing any buttons.
  • Adjust power / temperature = use the up and down adjustment buttons

Menu

The menu system on this is pretty simple.

Three clicks of the fire button will highlight one of the functions on the screen. Click the fire button to move onto the next function or the adjustment buttons to adjust.

  • Power – when this function is highlighted use the adjustment buttons to select which power mode you require – Power (Variable Wattage), Ni, SS, Ti (Temperature control modes), TCR, VPC (Custom curve mode) and Bypass. Press fire when the required mode is showing on the screen.
  • Temperature Control – you select the applicable mode depending on the coil material you are using (Ni= Nickel 200, Ti = Titanium, SS = Stainless Steel).
  • Coil resistance = when in TC or TCR mode select the coil resistance and press the – adjustment button to lock this. This should be done with a cold coil before using temperature control modes.
  • TCR – select the TCR mode as stated above. Using the adjustment buttons set the TCR parameters and press and hold fire to confirm.
  • VPC – select the VPC power mode. Using the adjustment buttons adjust the parameters and press fire to confirm. You can do this for up to 5 memory slots.
  • Puff Counter – when this is highlighted press the + adjustment button to clear the counter – press the + button again to cancel clearing the counter.

Safety Features

The mod also has the following safety protections:

  • Short circuit
  • High resistance / no atomiser found
  • Low voltage (battery needs charging)
  • Device overheating
  • 10s fire cut off (to prevent accidental firing and damage)
  • Anti-dry prompt (Temperature control mode)

How To Charge The Battery

To make sure that the mod stays waterproof the USB charging port is covered with a watertight plug – so try not to lose it!

This can apparently support 2A charging – however I was charging using the USB on my PC which I think does only output 0.5A. The charging time from an empty battery was 1 hour 15 mins roughly which is ace really.

  • Pop your nail in the little cut out on the USB port plug.aegis mini usb cover
  • Lift up the plug.
  • Install the small end of the USB cable into the charge port.aegis mini charging
  • Install the other end of the cable into a suitable USB outlet.
  • Whilst charging the screen will show a battery graphic.
  • When fully charged the screen will go blank.

How To Fill The Tank

  • Unscrew the top cap – it only takes about half a turn.
  • Add e-liquid to the filling ports (not the centre hole!). cerberus tank filling ports
  • Watch the liquid level through the tank glass.
  • Replace the top cap.

How To Change The Coil Head

An excellent feature of the Geekvape Cerberus tank is the ability to use coil heads from other manufacturers. The Smok V8 Baby, Vaporesso GT and Eleaf HW coils will all fit and work in here – just make sure the resistance and power required will suit the mod.

Coils – Installed: Smok TFV8 Baby. Left to Right: Geekvape Supermesh, Eleaf HW and Vaporesso GT
  • Remove the tank from the mod.
  • Turn the tank upside down and unscrew the base.cerberus tank coil removed
  • If a coil is installed unscrew it from the base.
  • Screw a new coil into the base.cerberus tank coil installed
  • Replace the base onto the rest of the tank.
  • Fill the tank and leave to stand for a good 10-15 mins as this has mesh coils which if not fully soaked in e-liquid will feel like vaping hot tar.

How Does the Geekvape Aegis Mini Kit Perform?

Flavour & Cloud Production

This is a Sub Ohm tank so it is best to use thicker e-liquid with a lower nicotine strength.

I am using my usual E-liquid – Stika Bombz Fruit Salad which is 80% VG and 6mg nicotine.

Super Mesh X2 Coil

Both coils in the full kit are the same specification.

This is a 0.3ohm coil made from KA1.geekvape super mesh

The rated power is 30-45W and the “Best” recommended power is 30-40W.

I found myself using this at 45W. I just felt it needed a bit more Oomph.

The clouds from this are surprising when you think of the low wattage you are running it at!

The flavour is pretty good – not the best I have had from a mesh coil but by no means terrible. I found the Uwell Nunchaku tank which you can run at 40W is better for flavour and that has standard rather than mesh coils. Also the Vaporesso NRG tank with the CCELL coil which only needs around 30W was better flavour in my opinion. The GT CCELL coil will fit into this tank!

I did find the flavour improved after a few tank fulls of e-liquid so it appears there is a short “bedding in” period. So far the coil life has been great at over 700 puffs.

Airflow wise – you can fully close off the airflow and fully open there is some restriction with a bit of a whistle. If you are expecting the virtual no restriction of say a TFV12 Prince tank then this will be too restricted for you.

I enjoy a restricted DTL vape and I tend to have this in the half open position. For an explanation of what the term “DTL” means read our guide to MTL and DTL Vaping Styles.

I will say this tank is not as thirsty as a lot of mesh sub ohm tanks – but it is higher resistance and running at lower power. After a week of use the performance of this coil has not decreased either.

Geekvape Aegis Mini Mod Performance

I have no fancy gear to test the accuracy of the mod – so I used the Cerberus tank on my Voopoo Alpha One mod at 45W and the same on the Aegis Mini mod and found no difference in performance. So from what I can tell the Aegis Mini is outputting pretty much the same power.aegis mini voopoo

I also tried the Freemax Fireluke Mesh tank on both mods set at 65W and again the performance seemed to be equal between both mods.

The fire button is very responsive even though I keep missing it!

I do find the adjustment buttons weird. Single short presses result in 0.1 increment adjustments. Hold the button down and it will fly through in 1.0 increments. But it really does fly quick and hard to let go in time at the setting you want!

The screen is lovely and clear and despite being dropped and knocked over this little mod still works an absolute treat. I have had no issues or errors with the mod at all.

Battery Life

This is a pretty basic device in terms of only a small 2-colour screen and no flashing bling lights.

The power / temperature setting and your vaping habits will obviously cause a variation in battery life. But to give you a guide vaping at 45W regularly I got 315 puffs and just over 5 hours.

As the battery level drops (Like on the original Aegis) it will not output full power. You find even set at 45W it will only put out like 24W – then the battery weak prompt comes up. At this point the tank has already started to flood as it is too low power to vaporise the liquid sufficiently.

Pros

  • One of the prettiest kits I have ever seen – like a miniature version of the bigger Aegis models.
  • Build quality is superb, all the accents and finishes are perfect.
  • So robust – this has fell of a shelf 3 times onto a hard desk and coped with the leaking tank when first installed and not a blemish or issue from this.
  • Even on my old PC charging at 0.5A it only took 1 hour 15 mins to fully charge.
  • Surprisingly good battery life.
  • Ability to use other brand coils in the Cerberus tank.

Cons

  • The installed coil was loose in the tank – so make sure to check before filling.
  • I still kept getting leaks from the tank whenever it was tipped over slightly even with 80%VG liquid and I took it apart several times to check all was ok.
  • The rubber coating does attract more fluff than a boiled sweet in a trouser pocket.
  • There are better tanks out there for flavour at the same wattage.

Final Review Verdict

I love this little mod. It is so cute, so lovely in your hand and it just does what you ask of it. Plus in the tradition of the Aegis range so far in the hands of a clumsy arse like me it hasn’t skipped a beat either.

The included Cerberus Tank was OK. This has higher resistance coils than those used in the Nova kit and the performance was decent. Not horrendous but not something I would rave about either.

I possibly would suggest something like the Uwell Nunchaku tank on here as that runs well at like 40W. At similar power levels the Nunchaku tank is far superior for flavour in my opinion. Other suggestions are the Vaporesso NRG tank with the CCELL ceramic coil  – which only needs around 30W, Eleaf Melo 4 or a MTL style tank such as the Innokin T20S.

Of course you can also try some of the Smok V8 Baby, Eleaf HW or the lovely Vaporesso CCELL coils in this tank too – which may improve the performance. I will be popping a CCELL coil in here myself as I think they are great.

Running some of the better mesh tanks such as the Freemax Mesh Pro would be a pain as the mod only outputs 80W and with an internal battery constant use at 75W on the Freemax tank will mean your battery life will be poor. However running the Geekvape Aegis Mini mod at 45W the battery life was way better than I was expecting!

Design and Build Quality

Freemax Twister 80W Mod

I absolutely love the design of the Freemax Twister. Admittedly, it might not be everyone’s cup of tea but the retro 90’s look, for me, is a refreshing style to hit the shelves at the beginning of 2019.Freemax Twister Bottom of Mod

The build quality is excellent, the finish is superb. No rattles or loose parts to be seen or heard. The kit is really lightweight and portable and sits in the hand with ease with the size makes for easy carrying in your pocket or bag.

One thing I will mention, though this can’t be found out with a one or two week test, is the sturdiness of the “Twister” wattage changer sitting at the bottom of the device. After all, that is going to take the brunt of the knocks and is on the base where you sit the device down.

The device itself is finished very nicely, no sharp corners or awkward protruding edges and not a hint of a rattle anywhere.

Fire Button

The fire button on this device is ideally placed to be used with either the finger or the thumb. Freemax Twister Fire ButtonYou press the button to instantly fire the device and five quick presses powers on and off the device.

Freemax Fireluke 2 Tank

I haven’t, until recently, been a user of stock coil Tanks. I have always used rebuildable RTA’s as that’s where you would get all the flavour. That is, until I got a Freemax Mesh Pro Tank. Stock coils have certainly come a long way in the last year or so.

The Freemax Fireluke 2 Tank certainly doesn’t disappoint in flavour or the looks department as it matches seamlessly with the Freemax Twister battery.

Changing the Coil

To insert the coil into the tank, simply screw in the coil to the bottom part of the Tank, put the Glass over the bottom section then simply screw the top part of the tank down.

How To Fill The Fireluke 2 Tank

Filling the Fireluke 2 Tank couldn’t be simpler.

  • Push back the top cover at the red dot until the cap goes back no further.
  • You will be met by a sizeable slot to put your e-liquid in.
  • Close up the top cover.

Filling the Freemax Fireluke 2 Tank

Freemax Twister 80W

Freemax Twister 80WSo, the Freemax Twister 80W is a tube Mod. A tube mod with an inbuilt 2300mAh battery and marketed as a starter kit.

Boy, I wish there were starter kits out there like this when I switched from cigarettes to vaping, life would have been so much easier. New vapers today have a huge selection of kits to start off with and the Freemax Twister would be right up there at the top of the pile for me.

The design is excellent with a huge retro look that could have been pulled right out of the 90’s. It’s slim and lightweight and has enough power from the internal battery to last a good 8 to 10 hours depending on how you vape.

Some people will say that they don’t like the design. Some people will probably come out and say this is aimed at “younger” vapers. Everyone is different and everyone will have an opinion, after all, that’s what makes the world such a brighter place.

I for one love it and I can tell you, I’m no youth coming up to 50 years old.

How does the Freemax Twister Kit Perform?

Well, upon receiving this kit I was really looking forward to using it. The kit had everything a new vaper needed. A simple mod with no screen, no temperature controlor other menu settings to have to rifle through and change.Freemax Twister In Hand

An updated Fireluke 2 Tank. How could they beat the original Fireluke Mesh Tank that Michelle loved so much and one that got a 9.9 rating?

Well, let me tell you, the Fireluke 2 is a 10/10 every day and I believe they have addressed some of the downfalls of the original. No longer do you have to wait for the coil to prime.

Although I wouldn’t recommend you put your e-liquid in the tank and start vaping from the off, certainly after a minute it is ready to go.

The kit as a whole performs very well indeed.

Changing your wattage could not be easier. A simple twist in either direction and it’s changed. You can choose from 5-80W.

This kit is a new vapers dream. Saying that, this is also a superb kit for the discerning vaper out there.

Flavour and Vapour Production

I won’t beat about the bush with this section of the review. The flavour from this tank is a 10/10 for a stock coil tank. Testing this against some of my rebuildable RTA’s matches and in some cases, beats them. As for cloud, you aren’t going to win a cloud comp with it but you get a decent vapor production from the Fireluke 2 tank.

I used the pre-installed X2 Mesh Coil and it was still going strong after 3 weeks.

Pros

  • Great build quality
  • Top Notch Flavour
  • Ease of use
  • Quick firing Mod
  • Pocketable Size
  • Good Battery Life

Cons

  • Questionable longevity of the Wattage Twister (Subjective)

My Final Thoughts

I have really enjoyed my time testing out the Freemax Twister Kit. Although I wouldn’t solely put this kit down to starters. I’m sure even some hardened vapers out there will want to have this kit in their arsenal. There isn’t any reason you shouldn’t go out and buy this kit.

My only real concern would be the Wattage Twister/Selector at the bottom of the device although in the time I have tested the device I haven’t had a problem at all and it feels very sturdy. Only time will tell if this remains the fact after a few months usage.

Aspire Feedlink Revvo Kit review

Aspire Feedlink Revvo Kit

The Aspire squonk kit has finally landed!  Following some pictures being posted on social media channels at the beginning of the year, the Aspire squonker has been released today.  The Feedlink mod is paired with the Revvo Boost tank in the kit.  Let’s see if Aspire have brought anything new to the squonk market…

The Feedlink mod is a single 18650 powered device that is semi-regulated.  It has no variable power capabilities but, unlike a straight mechanical mod, it does offer a level of user protection.  The Revvo Boost tank is a variant of the original Revvo, but rather than being able to fill using the novel top up system, this tank is designed be used for squonking.

Specs

Aspire Feedlink Mod

  • H:87mm x W:29mm x D:43mm
  • Output Voltage: 3.0-4.2V
  • Resistance Range: 0.1 – 3.5ohm
  • 7ml bottle capacity
  • Two colour LED indicator under the firing button

Safety Features

  • Automatic cut off: Max firing time of 10 seconds. After 10 seconds the mod will stop firing and the LED indicator will flash 10 times.
  • Short circuit protection: If a short is detected the LED indicator will flash 2 or 3 times.
  • Over discharge protection: If the battery falls below 3.2V the LED indicator will flash orange 15 times.
  • Overheat protection: If the control board in the mod reaches 75 degrees Celsius the mod will shut off and the LED indicator will flash blue and orange for 3 seconds.
  • Battery reverse protection: The mod won’t fry if you put your battery in the wrong way around.  The battery bottom cap does have a negative indicator on it so insert your 18650 positive side first.

Revvo Boost Tank

  • Bottom fill version of the Revvo – filling is via the squonk pin only
  • Adjustable airflow
  • 2ml capacity
  • Aspire Radial Coil
  • Coil Resistance 0.1 – 0.14ohm
  • Wattage 70-80W via Feedlink mod
  • 24mm diameter
  • 41mm height

What’s in the box?

  • 1 x Feedlink Mod

Feedlink Design and Build Quality

The Feedlink is a nicely designed mod in my opinion, POTV received a couple of them for this review, one in silver highlights and one in blue.  The silver version has a silver frame and silver / dark grey engraved side panels while the blue version has a black frame.

The frame is constructed from zinc alloy, it feels strong and has a really good weight to it.  The mod is well designed, it fits really nicely in the hand and the pistol-grip style with a top housed firing button is very comfortable and the position of the firing button feels natural.

The diamond pattern engraving on the side panels helps to secure the mod in the hand and gives the mod a stylish, elegant look.  The same diamond pattern is engraved on the button and the back panel while the front of the mod is smooth and shiny.

As well as the alloy panels there are also resin panel versions available.  Personally, I like the look of the metal panels more and the extra grip these give would put this version on my shopping list.

There is a really nice click to the button, it is responsive and is a good size – the position and the engraving on the button make it a pleasure to use.

At 7ml the bottle is a really good size.  It uses a plastic housing to hold the bottle and a quarter turn or so releases this housing from the mod.  You can then slide out the silicon bottle.  The bottle has a screw on top with a nice knurled edge to make it easy to get off and this top also has a metal tube that runs down to the bottom of the bottle.  The silicon bottle has a metal inner that the bottle top screws into, so you can grab this when unscrewing the top and screwing it back on, so you won’t get any leaking when refilling.  Likewise, the plastic bottle housing means that you won’t put any pressure on the silicon bottle when reinserting it, so juice loss and mess is minimised in day-to-day use.

The mod looks and feels great, sturdy and easy to use and a good weight.  There are a lot of boxy looking squonkers available so it’s nice to see something that has clearly had some time spent on it. The refilling system has clearly had some though put into it as well and, while the plastic housing is yet another part to the mod, it really does make refilling mess and accidental squeeze free, so it is a worthy addition.  Good job, Aspire!

Revvo Boost Design and Build Quality

The Revvo Boost is essentially the same as the original Revvo tank that was released late last year.  It is a 24mm tank that uses the ARC (Aspire Radial Coil) system.  Rather than the conventional wire coli this system uses a circular disk with a cotton pad underneath it.  The juice is held in a reservoir beneath the coil and the suggestion is that you tip the tank up every few puffs just to make sure that the cotton is saturated.  The original Revvo has a unique filling system, you can fill the tank without having to unscrew anything via a filling nozzle above the coil – the Revvo Boost has a hole in the central pin just below the cotton pad.  When you squeeze the bottle juice is pushed up through the centre pin.  I found that the juice was sucked up nicely by the cotton during the first few squeezes but turned it upside down a few times just to make sure.  I must admit that during use I haven’t upended the mod at all and it has worked flawlessly with no dry hits.

The silver sided mod comes with a silver air flow control ring on the Revvo and the blue sided one came with a matching blue airflow control ring – nice attention to detail and pairs the mod and atty up nicely.  The tank has a Pyrex sleeve on it, allowing you to see your juice level – and there is a replacement set in the kit just in case you break it.

I have seen a lot of good feedback about the Revvo and the ARC system on the POTV forum, and it is a cracking vape!  At 0.1-0.14ohm the vape can be pretty full on with the airflow wide open.  Closing the air flow down does give you a less full on vape but it does push the temperature up a bit.

With the original Revvo I also had some issues with it popping.  If I left the mod alone for an hour or so and then came back and fired it, more often than not it would give off a hell of a pop.  I have had this happen with other tanks before, and it can give you a bit of a shock, especially if the drip tip is in your mouth at the time!  One way to get around this is to get into the habit of firing it before you put it near your face, or to dial the power down a bit.  I have had the same popping a few times now with the boost as well so if you do get this system then do be aware of this.

Even with the higher power of these coils, the large Delrin drip tip means that the mouthpiece doesn’t get too hot, even if you do close the airflow down a bit.

Unlike conventional squonking, the juice is fed from a hole at the top of the centre pin just below where the coil sits, squonking pushes juice out of this hole and into the tank.  The tank fills and any excess juice is sucked back into the bottle when the tank is full – I have tried hard to get this set up to leak or overfill and it has stood up to my excessive fingering very well indeed!

My only negative feedback here is the ARC system and it being aimed only at those who want bigger clouds.  Some higher resistance coils would be really welcomed if you are listening Aspire!  A completely different tank aimed at a tighter airflow and a higher resistance would be a good addition to this arrangement too.

Performance

The Feedlink is a semi-regulated device – it has no power control functions at all, the power is derived from the resistance of the coil and the charge in your battery.  Some mods over the years have had a function called bypass mode and this is essentially the same.  What you have in terms of coil and battery is what you get out.  This is pretty much the same as a full mechanical mod but with a few safety features thrown in too like reverse battery, short circuit, overheat and over discharge protection as well as a 10 second firing time cut off.

With a fresh battery and all the way down to the orange and blue light showing (indicating a charge between 3.5 and 3.8V) the vape was consistent.  As you get below 3.5V you can definitely feel the power drop off a bit as well as the indication from the LED showing orange and blue from 3.8V down.

The mod has a gold plated 510 connection with a rubber o-ring a millimetre or so off from the connection.  Using the Feedlink with both the Revvo and a Haku Cruiser and the Flave 24 exclusively for the last couple of days I am pleased to say that all tanks had dry bottoms after use.  I haven’t taken the mod out and about but I am confident you won’t get wet patches in your pockets from using this mod.  How long the o-rings will last I can’t say but there is a bag of 11 spares in the kit so the set up should last you a really good amount of time.

Squonking worked nicely right down to the bottom of the bottle and survived my attempts to over fill the tank so from this point of view the mod worked very well too.

Overall the mod and tank have performed flawlessly in the two days that I have been using it for.   It is a thirsty set up though but with the cost of shortfills falling off rapidly it is not a bad time to have a go at pushing out some dense clouds!

Using the Feedlink with RDAs

The Feedlink mod is also fine in use with a normal bottom fed RDA.  I recently picked up a second hand AllianceTech Vapor Flave 24 as I really liked the 22mm version that I have had for a few months now.  These are great atties, easy to build and they produce superb flavour.  I used some Coilology Tri-Core fused Ni80 Clapton wire – the 3-28/36 version.  Five coils gave me a 0.36ohm coil and this set up is a cracking vape.

Squonking in its usual form works nicely with this mod, a quick squeeze of the bottle fills the deck via the bottom feed pin and the sucks any excess juice back into the bottle.  The bottle is a nice silicon one, not too hard and not too soft!  Due to the bottle holder and the metal feeding tube it isn’t going to be easily interchangeable with any open source bottle systems and we are yet to see what pricing will be like for the mod or kit but hopefully the bottles won’t be too pricey.

Using the mod with an RDA and higher resistance coil means you will get a longer life out of the battery as well as being able to control the amount of vapour you are getting from the mod by changing the resistance of the coil.

Conclusion

I love the look of this mod – its weight and feel in the hand are spot on and the styling is elegant and classy, nothing gaudy or in your face about this set up!  Coupled with the Revvo Boost it is only 15mm or so taller than using it with a traditional RDA and it fits in the pocket nicely.

I like the simplicity of semi-regulated devices, from using the Limelight Gloom with a simple mosfet and more recently a SunBox LV-426 with a Bomber Pro mosfet, there is a level of protection – being able to lock the device is a big plus for me – and it gives a consistent vape even when the battery is getting low.

All in all this is a pretty wicked set up and definitely one that I am happy to carry on using and to recommend to you guys!

GeekVape Ammit RTA Review

GeekVape Ammit RTA ReviewIf you have been vaping for the past couple of years or so then you are probably familiar with the company GeekVape as it has been one of the leaders when it comes to vaping products. Even if you are a relative newcomer to vaping, you must have at least run across one or two of their products on your search for your first proper vape kit. You might want to investigate the GeekVape Ammit RTA.

After coming up with some of the most iconic atomizers, like the Avocado 24 RDTA, the Tsunami RDA, and the Griffin 25, and other larger dual coil atomizers, it seems like the best atomizer that GeekVape has ever made is actually a small, 22mm, single coil RTA, the Ammit. Stop being fooled, the Ammit might be tiny, but it has quite a lot of airflow so you can spew out huge clouds of vapor, and the best part is that it is a flavor-chasing atomizer as well.

These days, 24mm atomizers are already considered small, and it seems like no one will ever want to go back to using 22mm devices, and I used to be one of those people. However, after using the Ammit RTA for a couple of days, I found that I cannot put it down; it has become my daily vape. If you are intrigued by, and you want to learn more about this crazy little beast of an RTA, here are a few details about the GeekVape Ammit RTA.

What’s in the Box?
  • The Ammit Single Coil RTA with proprietary 510 drip tip preinstalled
  • A spare glass tank
  • Two pre-made coils

  • Fortified with the Single Terminal Per Post Vertically secured through Phillips Head Screws
  • Boasts the presence of the PEEK Insulator
  • Improved Wicking System

  • Seamless Top-Fill Design
  • Adjustable, gold-plated 510-contact pin
The Look and Feel of the GeekVape Ammit RTA

DESIGN

When 2017 rolled in, the designs of most RTAs leaned towards being more low profile, but larger diameter. However, the Ammit seems to have gone back to the days when sub-ohm tanks have smaller diameter bases but are a bit on the tall side to accommodate enough juice. At the base, the Ammit measures 22mm, and from the base to the tip of the included 510 drip tip, it measures 55mm tall. However, I kind of like the look and feel of the Ammit; it has old-school dimensions, but the design of the tank is pretty modern.

BUILD QUALITY

Just like with any of the other GeekVape devices that I have used, I cannot find anything wrong with the build quality of the Ammit. The stainless steel parts were all machined perfectly, the threads are smooth and beefy, and I couldn’t find any traces of machining oil on any of the parts; you can use the atomizer straight out of the box. However, I do recommend you give all of your new atomizers a good cleaning first before you use them, just to be on the safe side.

AIRFLOW

The surprising thing about the GeekVape Ammit RTA is that it has a massive amount of airflow for such a small atomizer. If you fully open the bottom airflow holes, the draw on the Ammit has minimal to no restriction, which is a big plus for cloud chasers. On the other hand, if you want a slightly tighter draw, you can dial turn down the AFC ring until you achieve your ideal restrictiveness. The reason why the airflow is so smooth is because instead of having just one airflow hole on the build deck, the Ammit actually has two sources of airflow. Two channels coming out from the base of the build deck allows air to hit the bottom of the coils, and there’s a block coming out from the side of the deck opposite the build posts that has airflow holes so air can hit the side of the coils.

The Build Deck

The build deck on the GeekVape Ammit RTA is quite simple. There are two posts, one positive and one negative. Each of the posts has one post hole and a Philips head screw coming in from the top, when you tighten down the screw, it captures the leads of your coils.

The build deck basically has Velocity-style posts, but for single coil only. At the base of the build deck you will find two small tubes jutting outwards, these are where your bottom airflow will come from. At the side of the deck opposite of the build posts, there is a block milled directly into the build deck that has a couple of airflow holes that point towards one side of the coil.

Installing coils onto the Ammit’s build deck is quite simple, you just need to make sure that the leads of your coils are pointing in the same direction, then thread them into the postholes, tighten down the screws to secure the leads, and the snip off any excess. Make sure that you position your coils directly above the bottom airflow and as close to the side airflow as you can to maximize the amount of flavor that you can get from your clouds.

My Vaping Experience With the Ammit RTA

INSTALLING COILS

Even non-experienced coil builders will not have a hard time installing coils on the build deck of the GeekVape Ammit RTA. The fact that the screws are on top of the posts are also a big bonus because it makes capturing leads easier and it will not twist flat wires unlike when the screws come from the sides. Wicking the coils is also easy because the juice ports at the base of the build deck are actually wide. Here’s a tip: don’t stuff cotton into the hole at the base of the wick slots, just allow your cotton to rest on top of it so it will wick more efficiently.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE

The Ammit disassembles into six pieces, and it does not have any small parts that you can easily lose. The only gripe that I have with the Ammit is that there is no knurling on the top cap, which makes it a bit hard to twist off if I accidentally screw it on too tight and it gets covered with a thin film of juice, which always seems to happen regardless of the RTA I use. Other than that, I do find the Ammit easy to clean and maintain.

VAPING EXPERIENCE

When I first saw just how small the GeekVape Ammit RTA was, I already knew that it would be a great flavor chasing tank, but what surprised me was how it was a decent cloud chasing atomizer as well. The “three-dimensional” airflow system really does help create massive plumes of vapor, which is something that I did not expect from a small 22mm tank.

Pros and Cons of the GeekVape Ammit RTA
Pros
  • Massive amounts of airflow for such a small atomizer
  • Flavor production is excellent, one of the best flavor chasing atomizers to date
  • Easy to build on and wick
  • Single coil means you will get plenty of battery life
  • Respectable 3ml juice capacity
Cons
  • No knurling on the top cap so removing it can be difficult when screwed on tightly
Final Thoughts

I really cannot find anything wrong with the GeekVape Ammit RTA; in my opinion, it is the perfect RTA and I have yet to find something that can surpass it in terms of flavor and vapor production. There is no doubt that at the end of this year, the Ammit will be among the top atomizers.

Vaporesso SWAG Kit Reviewed: A Palm-Sized Pocket Rocket

Introduction To The Vaporesso SWAG Kit

Today we are looking at the Vaporesso SWAG Kit, which consists of the SWAG Mod which is a single 18650 device that outputs a maximum of 80w and has different modes such as the standard Variable Wattage, Temperature Control and bypass!

Vaporesso-Swag-Kit-FullOn top of this we have the NRG SE tank by Vaporesso. It’s a 22mm diameter tank and comes in either a 2ml or 3.5ml e-liquid capacity depending on whether you are in Europe or not.

You also have the option of using one of five ‘GT Cores’ (Coils) ranging from a 0.4Ω GT2 Core, all the way up to a 0.15Ω GT8 Core. There is also the option of using a 0.5Ω GT CCELL which uses ceramic!

The Vaporesso SWAG Kit looks to appeal to new vapers rather than your seasoned box mod user, but it may also be good for people that need a handy little pocket sized device for going out and about!

In this review we will be looking at the black on blue version of the SWAG Kit!

Vaporesso SWAG Kit Build Quality & Design

Vaporesso NRG SE Mini TankVaporesso-NRGSEMini-Parts

We’ll start from the top and make our way down the RDA…

The Drip Tip:

At the top we have the drip tip. It is just your usual 510 size and made from delrin. It’s nicely shaped and feels great in the mouth. It attaches to the barrel via an o-ring. It is removable and you can switch it out for your own preferred drip tip if you wish.

Top Fill Port:

Beneath the drip tip we have the top fill port. Simply push in the direction of the arrow and the top cap will swivel round to reveal the top fill port. It has a silicone gasket there to prevent any leakage, It does the job very well as I haven’t had any leaks at all from the top of this tank.Vaporesso-NRGSEMini-Fillport

There could have been an extra hole up top to allow the release of air from the tank whilst filling as I did have a few issues with air getting locked inside the tank and it got a bit messy.Vaporesso-NRGSEMini-Filling

The Airflow Base:

At the bottom of the device we have the airflow control which consists of two large cyclopse holes that are adjustable by twisting the outer ring. Once you’ve reached either fully open or fully closed, there is a stop which prevents you from turning further so that you’re less likely to accidentally open or close the airflow.Vaporesso-NRGSEMini-Full

Vaporesso NRG SE Tank – Overall:

Overall, the NRG SE Mini Tank by Vaporesso is pretty well made and designed. The top fill function is nicely designed, but I think that the addition of a hole to allow air to escape would have been great as well as a bit more knurling on the airflow adjustment ring to make turning it a bit easier. Other than that, I’m happy with it.

Find out how the tank performs further down in the article as well as an in depth opinion of the flavour and cloud production

The Vaporesso SWAG Mod:

At the top we have the 510 connector which has a stainless steel surround and a spring loaded positive pin. Beside that we have the battery cap which unscrews to allow you to insert your 18650 battery.Vaporesso-Swag-Battery

The battery cap could have done with a bit more aggressive knurling on it, in all honesty. I found it a bit hard to undo at times, especially with the tank on.Vaporesso-Swag-Top

Working around the sides of the device, we have both sides covered in an iridescent-style wrap which adds a nice grippy texture as well as breaking up the blue of the device.

On one side we have the + and – button to control the wattage or temperature.Vaporesso-Swag-Side2

On the other side we have the Micro USB charge and update port.Vaporesso-Swag-Side1

At the bottom of the device we have two vent holes for the battery and chipset.Vaporesso-Swag-Base

Next, lets go around to where all the action happens. You have your fire button that protrudes from the device and is textured just for that little extra bit of grip.

Below that we have the 0.91″ OLED screen which displays all the information you need. The screen is nice and bright, and extremely easy to read in all lighting conditions.Vaporesso-Swag-Screen1

Below the screen we have the menu button. By holding down the menu button, it brings up all the different functions and settings. By pressing the menu button once you can scroll through the different firing modes as well as edit your settings. To go into that setting, press the menu button three times.Vaporesso-Swag-Screen2

The Vaporesso SWAG Mod – Overall:

Construction wise, I’d say that this is very well made. I wouldn’t say that it feels cheap at all. The SWAG also has a realistic weight to it, just enough to make you feel like you’re holding something, but not too light or heavy.

I do think that they could have made the device that little bit bigger to allow tanks over 22mm to be used on it, as well as a but better knurling on the battery cap to make it easier to remove it.

Another issue I have is that the + and – button on the side is recessed too much, I would have preferred the buttons to have protruded slightly rather than being set back inside the device.

How Does the Vaporesso NRG SE Tank Perform?

On the RDA, I have used both the included coils with the kit. which are the GT2 Core and the GT CCELL.

The GT2 Core

The GT2 Core is a 0.4Ω dual coil core, wicked with regular cotton and is recommended to be used between 40 and 80w and is suggested to be best at 55 to 65w.Vaporesso-Swag-Kit-C2-Coil1

As for flavour and clouds, I have found that the GT2 Core works best for me at 44w. Anything above that, the flavour deminishes and starts to get a bit dry. The cloud production was around about average.Vaporesso-Swag-Kit-C2-Coil2

The GT2 Coil lasted me about a week before the flavour started to plummet, which is pretty poor from my point of view. Another week would have been good at least!

GT CCELL

The GT CCELL is a 0.5Ω ceramic wicked coil and is recommended to be used between 20 and 35w. Ceramic coils are supposed to give a cleaner and crisper flavour compared to cotton, but what do I think about it?Vaporesso-Swag-Kit-GTCCELL1

I find that the flavour on the GT CCELL was best for me at 30w. It gave a consistent and crisp flavour and the coil lasted me just over a week. Yet again, a bit disappointing in terms of longevity, but whilst it was working, the flavour and clouds were pretty good at 30w!Vaporesso-Swag-Kit-GTCCELL2

How Does the Vaporesso Swag Mod Perform?

As said previously, the SWAG mod is a single 18650 device, and generally single battery devices tend to last me a day, but is dependent on what resistance coil i am using. And in all honesty, the SWAG mod doesn’t disappoint. The battery life for me was around about average lasting me about three quarters to a full day.

The firing is pretty instant! There is literally no delay in between pressing the button to the coil bursting into life, which is great!

One thing I do love is the 2A Quick Charge function. When you plug this device in to charge, it gives you a counter to show you how long until the device will be fully charged. But as always, I recommend charging externally at around 1A to preserve the life of your batteries, but as a ‘worse case scenario’ I would say it is absolutely fine, but I wouldn’t use it all the time.

Cons

  • Airflow hard to adjust
  • Battery cap difficult to remove when the tank is on
  • Poor coil life
  • Tank could be colour coded
  • +/- buttons recessed too much
  • Menu system a bit difficult to navigate
  • Can’t fit bigger than 22mm tanks on

Pros

  • Fits nicely in the hand
  • Looks great
  • Screen easy to read
  • 2A Quick Charge Feature
  • Tank easy to refill

Final Review Verdict

Overall, the Vaporesso SWAG Kit a nice little setup for beginners. It’s compact, it looks great and the mod performs pretty well! The tank is the only thing that lets the kit down, or to be more specific, the coils let the tank down. The poor coil life just is a big negative in my eyes, and the restrictions you have on adding a different tank because of the battery cap is just annoying!

So if I were to say anything to potential buyers of this SWAG kit, it would be to try and buy the SWAG mod and avoid the tank. Just make sure you have a decent 22mm tank to go on top, otherwise you’ll be stuck.

Looks and Build Quality

Measuring in at a height of 83mm, with a width of 34mm, and manufactured from zinc alloy with ceramic elements, the Smoant Battlestar has been designed to sit comfortably in the palm of your hand, and weighing it at 136g (without batteries) it’s designed to be pocket friendly as well. Even with batteries inserted, it’s a mod that feels great to hold, without feeling too heavy either. The rounded edges of the Smoant Battlestar give it a comfortable feel and mean that the device doesn’t dig into your hand. It’s available in three colours as well, I received the black one to review however yellow and white versions are also available.

A stainless steel spring loaded 510 connector is fitted, meaning that you can get a flush fit for your atty with no gaps. A good sized power button is found at the front, above the OLED screen, and underneath the screen is a single plus and minus button. A magnetic battery door cover gives access to the battery compartment which does have a battery ribbon present, here you will need to insert two 18650 batteries, that can support a minimum of a 25A drain each, and there are twelve battery venting holes to keep your unit cool during usage. A micro USB port is found at the front of the unit, underneath the plus and minus button, the Smoant Battlestar has a balance charging board installed so you can charge your batteries through this port. Pass through is also present, so you can vape whilst charging.

The large OLED screen is a great feature of this unit, its bright under pretty much any light conditions and the large font used makes the information displayed on screen clear and easy to read. Battery level, the current mode, power level/temperature limit, resistance and voltage are all displayed on screen.

There’s no mistaking the fact that the Smoant Battlestar bears a pretty similar resemblance to the wildly popular Wismec Reuleaux RX200, albeit in a slimmer and lighter form. I also own the Wismec Reuleaux RX200, and there is a noticeable difference between the two, the Smoant Battlestar is less weighty and much more pocket friendly, however I did note that the buttons on the Smoant Battlestar seemed to be a little more clicky than the buttons on the Reuleaux, but they aren’t uncomfortably so. Overall, the Smoant Battlestar sports great form factor and feels like a really well made device.

Smoant Battlestar Menu System and Operation

  • 5 clicks of the power button turn the device on and off
  • Screwing an atomizer into the 510 connector will prompt you to enter whether a new coil (by pressing plus) or the same coil (by pressing minus) has been entered.
  • 3 clicks of the power button will take you into the menu system.
  • Holding down fire as well as plus and  minus will lock the power
  • Holding down fire and plus will invert the screen colour
  • Whilst in the menu system, pressing either the plus or minus button will scroll between VW (variable wattage)/Ni (Ni200 coil for TC)/Ti (Titanium coil for TC)/ SS (Stainless Steel coil for TC)/NC (new coil)/TCR M1/M2/M3. Click the fire button to confirm the mode
  • Three custom TCR slots are available, allowing you to enter the TCR for a specific wire and use it in temperature control
  • In TCR, pressing plus or minus allow you to select the coefficient value, and press the fire button when you have the desired value.
  • For a stainless steel coil (SS303, 304, 316 and 317) the TCR range is 150-60. For Gold, it is 300-340. For Titanium, it is 350-370. For Silver, it is 371-380. For Copper, it is 381-390. For Ni-Fe it is 391-500. For Nickel it is 500-700.
  • Reverse polarity, over heating, low voltage, overload/short circuit, no atomizer and overheat protections are built it, as well as a 10 second cut off.

Performance

Featuring 200W of output power, the Smoant Battlestar has more power than the vast majority of users will need. I’ve found that it seems to deliver it pretty accurately and consistently, most notably at higher wattages where it delivers a hell of a kick! Resistance is read down to 0.1ohm in power mode meaning that the Smoant Battlestar is compatible with pretty much anything out there, and it’s a great choice for cloud chasers. I’ve found the chip reads resistance pretty accurately too, with very little deviation between the device and my ohms reader.

Temperature control is pretty comprehensive. Support for Ni200, Titanium and Stainless Steel wire is included out of the box, plus the custom TCR input means you can use a wide range of other wire types in TC mode as well. I tested an Ni200, Titanium as well as a Stainless Steel coil on the Smoant Battlestar in temperature control mode and never ran into any issues with dry hits or an inconsistent vape. It just delivered what I asked of it in TC each and every time.

Battery life with the Smoant Battlestar is great if you vape at more most wattages, I managed nearly two days vaping at 35W with the Wotofo Sapor RTA, however vaping at higher wattage will run the battery life down considerably. You can charge the Smoant Battlestar through the USB port, and it features passthrough technology so that you can vape whilst charging, however I’d recommend only using this feature for an emergency charge as it does take an awful long time to charge the two 18650 batteries through the USB port.

Conclusion

For the price, the Smoant Battlestar is a great addition to anyone’s collection. It’s a solidly built mod, with excellent form factor making it feel comfortable in hand, that has an accurate and consistent chip packed with great features, and people who vape at more modest wattages will benefit from great battery life. The custom TCR input is a great feature too as it allows you to customize and fine tune your temperature control experience. All in all, I’ve not been able to fault it.It’s an impressive bit of kit and if you are on the hunt for a well priced and powerful unit that comes packed with all the features you could possibly need, feels great in hand and is easy to use as well, then the Smoant Battlestar is a great device to pick up!
