Holy airflow Batman! This thing is the airiest tank I have ever had! Juice channels are insane too! But there are some downsides too…
So the airflow is so big that when fully open, it literally just feels like breathing! I cranked my first coil build in this thing up to 180 watts on my XCube, and the only thing I managed to do was burn the wicks (due to them not being able to wick fast enough, not due to lack of airflow) and that was the only time I’ve vaped it wide open, otherwise, it’s nothing but spit back city. For those of you that like your single coil builds, there is a setting on the airflow where it will run in single coil mode and it comes with an adapter for the build deck to make this possible as well. The last thing I will say about the airflow, is that although its raised up from wicking slots on the build deck, the fact that it’s an under-coil airflow makes it flood super easily, and let me assure you, I have packed those wick slots before, my first coil build in this thing was around a #1 Philips screwdriver, the largest size from one of those 6-piece precision screwdriver sets, it looks to be a bit over 4mm, this coil was huge, then I Scottish rolled the wick, and stuffed it full, still leaked out the air holes. Eventually the leaking stops, or seems to, but really it just leaks less.
I built 3 pairs of coils in this thing, with the last one seeming to work the best, I’ve tried all sorts of wicking, nothing seemed to keep the leaking at bay, or to allow the kind of power to be applied this thing seems to be capable of given the insane airflow. First I started with 24 gauge around the #1 Philips screwdriver, that was just to see how big of a build you could fit, suffice it to say, pretty big. The second was a pair of 26/32 single core claptons at 2.5mm ID, it still fit, took a little less wick, and I attempted to wick this with both the Scottish roll and CottonBacon 2.0, they both burnt, once again, due to the inability to wick fast enough, and this one was only vaped around 80 watts, I have the same build in my velocity, no problems wicking with it at the same wattage. Lastly, I figured I’d shoot for 50-60 watts, put a dual twisted 26g build in, Scottish roll, and at that wattage it seems to wick just fine, but still leaks like a sieve.
So on to the biggest problems with this tank, because honestly I feel confident I can figure out the wicking/building combination that makes this thing work, it just might take some time, but there are some problems that will never go away. The first is the leaking, whenever I top fill, which due to the way it’s built is the only option, it leaks, new cotton, old cotton, new build, old, it doesn’t matter, leaks, and like I said above, it doesn’t matter how full you pack the wick channels. So you soak of the juice out of the air channels and over the course of you vaping it seems to dry up, until you remove it from your mod, then it’s all over the top of your mod and the bottom of the atty. The second issue is the screws; I could deal with all of the other issues with this tank if it wasn’t for the god awful screws, they back out with ease, can’t be tightened for anything without stripping them, overall they’re just terrible and single-handedly the worst thing about this tank, building is a fun experiment in how infinite your patience is and that’s about it.
Lastly, a few small pros I did enjoy, first the drip tip that comes with it is very nice, it comes with spare glass, 3 different colors of O-rings for the glass, and it’s really easy to disassemble to clean, that’s about it, I would say the juice channels, but like I said, I have yet to be able to wick it in a way that actually wicks as fast as I vape, which is shocking given that they’re so incredibly massive! Get one here if you’re feeling brave, or if patience was your new year’s resolution.
