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 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

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.

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

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!
