The Crown III by UWELL is coming!

The new Crown III is a 24.5 mm tank that holds a whopping 5 mL of juice. And get this: it’s currently on pre-order from EFUN.top for $19.99! There are three new colors in addition to black and stainless—rainbow iridescent, sapphire blue, and matte black—as well as 9 different drip tip colors to mix and match. It also features an improved chimney design that is supposed to minimize the potential for leaking and condensation, and there’s a new coil system.

But UWELL has made the new coil system a “plug-pull” coil swap in lieu of the threaded bullet-style heads, and there is a new airflow system to the heads. Previously there were four bottom airholes, but now there are three slots. It may seem minor, but the coil heads account for a huge percentage of how well a tank performs, and a minor tweak can make all the difference in the world.

Let’s hope these Crown 3 heads perform up to the og Crown’s status!

Game of Crowns

Uwell-crown-3

Some of you may remember when the Crown tank was the hottest thing on the market. It seems like several years ago, but it was just mid-2015. Not even a full two years. Wow!

The original 22 mm Crown was manufactured and designed well, it came with long-lasting coils that could withstand some heat, and the stainless-steel (wire) coils were the first of its kind for a sub ohm tank—they could be used in wattage or temp control mode. Back then, the Crown put out crazy good flavor and exceptional clouds. For many months, it was top dog!

But after a while, the tank started getting more negative reviews. The coil consistency started getting iffy, and then it didn’t help that SMOK captured everyone’s attention with the TFv4. Many of us just moved on from UWELL.

UWELL eventually responded with a version 2. It was a beautiful tank which met and exceeded all objective standards of the original Crown, but many felt it lacked heart… at least in the flavor department.

The Successor

Uwell-crown-3

At first glance, the Crown III doesn’t appear to be massively different from the v2, though the Crown emblem on the chimney is kinda sweet.

The main differences between this and the v2: an additional 0.5 mm to the diameter, the removal of 0.8-ohm coil heads and Ni200 coil heads, and there is now a key to unlock the top portion of the tank for easy cleaning (that should’ve been included in the second version). No mention yet on an RBA deck. There’s a new and improved chimney, and a new plug-pull coil system with updated airflow.

The “plug-pull” coil system sounds like it’s like the Vaporesso EUC coil head. This should address the problems that some vapers had with the threaded connection of the coil heads of the v2. But it remains to be seen if these new coils will catapult the Crown III back to the status that UWELL used to occupy. They say the third time is a charm. For UWELL Crown fans, let’s hope that is true.

Augvape BTFC RDA Review

Following the successful collaboration with Mike Vapes on the Intake RTA, the people at Augvape are keeping the collab. trend going, this time teaming up with VapnFagan for a 25mm RDA that’s supposed to deliver both excellent flavor and lots of vapor. Called the BTFC RDA, which stands for Bottom Top Flavor Clouds, this atomizer is supposed to be an all-in-type of device that can bring out the best flavor in an e-liquid, but also chug the vapor, thanks to multiple airflow configuration options. Let’s check it out:

 A Look at the Contents

The BTFC RDA comes in the usual Augvape packaging – a small, cylindrical cardboard box, with the company logo, BTFC name and VapnFagan’s logo on one side, and company information as well as a scratch and check authenticity sticker on the other side.

Inside this cardboard cylinder we have the BTFC RDA sitting snug in a Styrofoam holder and if you take that out you can find a small plastic bag full of accessories at the bottom of the box. There you’ll find a bunch of replacement o-rings, spare grub screws for the build deck, an Allen key and a hollow 510 pin for squonking.

I understand that Augvape wants to stand out from most of the other manufacturers by using these cylindrical boxes, but they should really make them easier to use. For example, that accessories bag at the bottom is really hard to reach, especially if you have fat, stubby fingers, so maybe make the box accessible from both the top and the bottom? I don’t know, but they should really think about some improvements.

Design and Build Quality

The Augvape BTFC RDA measures 25mm in diameter and 33mm from the bottom to the drip tip, is made primarily of stainless steel, and feels very heavy in the hand, both because of the thick barrel and the beefy build posts. You can currently find it in black, stainless steel, grey and rainbow.

On the outside, the BTFC RDA doesn’t really look very impressive, Yes it has it has the “BTFC” logo etched on one side, but I’m more into discrete branding, so I don’t find that very impressive.

At the top, we have a low-profile black Delrin drip-tip kept in place by an o-ring built into the removable top cap of the atomizer. The top cap can be rotated to adjust the top airflow which comes through two medium size holes on opposite sides. On the inside, the top cap is only slightly rounded to improve the flavor.

Apart from the obvious branding and the two airflow holes on the bottom, the barrel of the BTFC RDA isn’t anything special. It’s slightly thicker at the top, which probably adds to the overall weight of the atomizer, but that’s about all I can say about it.

At the base, we have an adjustable, gold-plated 510 pin which can be replaced with the hollow pin included in the kit.

While on the outside the BTFC RDA may not be anything to write home about, the build deck really looks very impressive, primarily because of the four beefy posts which double as air channels for the bottom airflow. It features one positive and one negative post on each side, so you can easily use it in both dual-coil or single-coil mode. All you have to pay attention to is aligning the coil(s) in such a way that the bottom airflow hits it/them directly.

The Augvape BTFC RDA has a very deep juice well, but it kind of creates the illusion that it can hold a lot of e-liquid. In reality, the four build posts take up so much space that they only leave a little space for the wicking and the juice, so the designers had no choice but to make it deeper. I’m not saying that it doesn’t hold enough juice, it does, but it just looks a lot more spacious than it really is.

Installing one or two coils on this build deck is a fairly simple affair, especially if you have some experience. All you need to do is loosen the grub screws at the top of the posts using the Allen key, slip the leads into their allotted slots, while keeping in mind that the two pairs of posts facing each other are positive-negative.

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

One of the cool things about how these build posts are designed is that you can leave your coil leads as long as you like, as the excess comes out in the back of the posts and you can snip them with your wire cutters, Do make sure that the leads don’t stick out too much as they may end up touching the barrel of the RDA and cause a short circuit.

When installing coils on the BTFC RDA, keep an eye on the slightly slanted holes right under the coil lead slots. These are actually the bottom airflow holes. Air comes through the two slots on the side of the RDA, goes in through the build posts and comes out through those slanted slots. So you want your coils to be aligned in such a way that the air hits them directly. What I like about this design is that it’s hard for e-liquid to leak through the bottom airflow slots because they are located so high up.

I for one like the idea of having both bottom and top airflow, but I do feel that Augvape and VapnFagan could have done a better job designing the airflow consideration. If you want to use the BTFC with both bottom and top airflow open, that’s fine, although that’s too airy a vape for my taste. If you only vape on it with the bottom airflow open, that’s fine too, as you can easily close the top airflow by turning the top cap, but if you want to use the RDA only with side airflow, there’s a problem.

The thing is that the bottom airflow slots are cut into the barrel, so you have to turn it to close and open it. Only when the bottom airflow is closed, the barrel is no longer aligned with the coils, so neither are the top airflow slots. Air will still hit your coils, but from an angle, so it will affect both the flavor and the vapor production. I tried vaping like that for a while, and while the flavor was still pretty good, the vapor production was a lot weaker, plus I started feeling a stronger throat hit even though I was only vaping 2% nicotine e-liquid.

Unfortunately, there’s no way to fix this top airflow issue, but, on the bright side, bottom airflow is much better in my opinion anyway, especially when it comes to vapor. Still, this is a considerable con.

Conclusion

All in all, the Augvape BTFC is true to its name – it does have bottom and top airflow and offers both great flavor and clouds of vapor (depending on your build, obviously), but it’s definitely not perfect. Using the top airflow by itself doesn’t yield the best results due to the alignment with the coils, and it doesn’t really bring anything new to the table. Still, it’s a nice RDA to add to your connection, especially if your a fan of Fagan’s or if you’re in the market for a 25mm.

SMOK Spirals Plus Tank review | A Tank for Flavor Chasers

Big turbo, big love…?

If you ever thought SMOK made vaping gear only for cloud chasers, think again. The Chinese company has recently brought out the Spirals Plus tank, a slightly wider, chunkier version of the original Spirals tank. This 24.5 mm tank comes with two different coil types and a rebuildable single-coil atomizer deck (with pre-installed Clapton wire). The coils that come with the Spirals Plus tank are compatible with the original Spirals kit too. This vape tank is designed for low to mid-wattage vaping, with a definite emphasis on flavor. It sells online between $20 and $30. Let’s get down and dirty and see what SMOK can do in the flavor game, shall we?

SMOK Spirals Plus Tank Specs and Features

Kit Content

  • Spirals Plus tank
  • 1 x 0.6 ohm dual core coil (recommended range 18 – 35 W)
  • 1 x 0.3 ohm dual core coil (recommended range 20 – 45 W)
  • 1 x RBA core (single coil deck)
  • Replacement glass tube
  • User manual
  • Spare parts

Notable Remarks

Getting started

DRAGON-spiral-plus

SMOK packages the Spirals Plus tank with the usual attention to detail. Included in the kit are two pre-made dual-core coils, at 0.6 ohm and 0.3 ohm respectively. The coils are marked with the recommended wattage ranges as well as a “best” wattage recommendation. I’d treat these as suggestions, as other wattages may work better for you – and the e-liquid you’re vaping on.

An added plus with the Spirals Plus tank is that it comes with an RBA core. This deck is intended for single-coil builds, and comes with a Clapton wire pre-installed. The wire is held in place with two cross-head screws. In case these are too short for your wire type, the kits comes two extra sets of screws in different lengths. Spare parts include O-rings, screwdriver, and replacement tank glass.

Overall, the tank feels sturdy and well made. One of our samples has some minor threading issues with the top cap. It can be difficult to unscrew the tank while you still have e-juice inside it. Also, unscrewing the RBA core from the tank base can be a bit fiddly – the RBA housing should be firmly attached, so the core comes off in one piece.

Spirals Plus is a top-fill tank. Simply unscrew the drip tip and holder from the top of the tank and apply e-liquid into either of the large slots around the chimney. Note that this will be easier with unicorn bottles than with droppers.

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

How it performs

DRAGON-spiral-plus

The Spirals Plus tank is an interesting beast, in that it offers coil types with very different profiles. The 0.6 ohm coil has a much narrower inner diameter and from that you can see that it is intended for a more restricted lung hit, even MTL vaping.

After priming the coil itself, filling up the tank and waiting, I start off at around 18 W and work my way up. I’m vaping Cloud Corp’s Mereen e-liquid, a melon-infused, fruity blend, with a ratio of 70 VG/30 PG. Shout outs to Blair and Reece for the samples!

the small juice holes on the coil housing could lead to problems in wicking thicker e-liquids. And although 28 W is the recommended “best” setting for this particular coil, I start to get dry hits at this wattage. My personal sweet spot was around 23 W. At this wattage, the tank functions very well and the flavors are great. I would describe the hit as somewhere between mouth-to-lung and a restricted lung hit.

The tank has an airflow ring and four inlet holes. Sliding the ring to close off airflow closes all holes simultaneously. While this intensifies flavor and raises the temperature of the vape, the tank does whistle when airflow is closed off. This didn’t annoy me with headphones on, but expect a canine chorus if you live with dogs.

The 0.3 ohm coil has a wider inner diameter, and is more of a direct lung vape. With this coil, flavor is great, vapor is dense, almost creamy, and the clouds ain’t bad either. My favorite wattage on this coil was between 40 – 43 W and felt like the perfect marriage of flavor and vapor production. To be sure, it’s not a cloud machine, but at 40 W, what is? For the wattage that you run the Spirals Plus tank at, it certainly puts out.

Finally, the RBA core. Simply having this option is a big plus in my opinion. However, there is definite room for improvement. The deck holds a single coil in place with two cross screws. Although there are replacement screws in the kit, they all have the same size head. You’ll be able to hold a Clapton wire or similar in place, but anything thinner will be tricky without chunkier screws.

Even with the Clapton wire that was pre-installed, my ohm readings were all over the place – anything from 0.6 ohm to 0.3 ohm! This can be corrected while you have e-liquid in the tank by unscrewing the top cap and tightening the screws, but hold the tank glass down as doing this loosens the whole construction. The screws are small and fiddly, and can be easily stripped if you overtighten. Also pay attention that the end of the wires don’t extend too far out, or you risk an atomizer short.

As a final note I would add that even though the installed Clapton coil came out around 0.6 ohm for me, due to the larger e-liquid inflows the RBA can be run at a higher wattage than the 0.6 dual-core coil. I vaped on it up to 40 W with no problems. But the tank will leak if you puff into it while firing to prime the coil, so watch out for that.

Likes

  • Kit comes with 2 different coil types and an RBA core
  • Flavor is great
  • Compatible with coils from the Spirals tank
  • Coils have a good longevity

Dislikes

  • Tank whistles when closing off airflow
  • Some dry hits on the 0.6 ohm coil – pay attention to PG/VG ratio
  • RBA core screws could be bigger
  • Metering the RBA core / tweaking it can be difficult with e-juice in the tank

Verdict

The SMOK Spirals Plus tank is versatile and offers a variety of options for beginners who want to vape straight out of the box, as well as more advanced users who like to tinker. This is a tank which is long on flavor and offers different draws depending on the coil used. Some people may find the added height from the drip tip and holder irritating; it didn’t bother me personally. What I didn’t like was the way the tank whistled, and elements of the RBA core, which can be easily improved. The Spirals Plus is fairly chunky at 24.5 mm and you’ll need a similarly wide mod to avoid overhang. I would add that the 0.6 ohm coil works best with an e-liquid that has a 70/30 VG/PG ratio or lower. The 0.3 ohm coil handled a higher VG ratio without problems.

In conclusion, this is a flavor tank that does what it says on the tin. I recommend the Spirals Plus tank to anyone who’s into the flavor game and likes a low to mid-wattage vape.

VOOPOO Rune RDA Review

Do you know that VOOPOO has released Rune RDA ?

Rune rda is VOOPOO’s second RDA. If you don’t have one, let’s check the review below!

Specs:

24.6mm Diameter
Four-Terminal Postless Style Build Deck
Side Mounted Flathead Screws
Stainless Steel Plated Deck and Screws
12mm Deep Juice Well
Dual Port Bottom Feed
Interchangeable Squonk Pin
Adjustable Side Airflow
Four Bottom Air Ports
Two Per Side
4mm Wide Each
Gold Plated 510 Contact
810 Resin Drip Tip
510 Drip Tip Adapter

Design

There’s a Large build deck with four adjustable sideling airflow, the sideling airflow tubes lengthen the distance of airflow for a better flavor.

Both single coil and dual coils supported, it’s your choice.

And substantial juice wells making it suitable for both dripping and squonking.

What I love is the One-step coil insetion,which is very surprising for rda beginners.

Build Quality

The build quality of the Rune is very good. All of the Stainless Steel construction feels solid, and the threading on the 510 pin is nice and smooth. The gold-plated BF pin also feels very sturdy.

Performance

If you tried Rune rda, I believe you’ll be impressed with it’s performance.

To be honest, it may not be the best cloud chucking RDA or the most intense flavor producer, but overall it still does an excellent job at all of those aspects.

All Builds 2.5mm-4mm ID. There is room to go bigger as well, much bigger, could easily fit a 5–6mm ID but it really works best with a 3.5–4mm ID. Smaller one’s didn’t work as well and seems to lose flavor. You want your coils to cover up both air holes. Height wise, you want to drop it as low to the air as you can. The higher up the less flavor came through. Overall flavor can be really good when built correctly and just decent when not. It’s not made for a lot of wraps or small ID coils.

3 x Seal Ring

SMOK DEVILKIN WITH TFV12 PRINCE KIT REVIEW

The full SMOK Devilkin Kit review

In-Depth SMOK Devilkin Starter Kit Review

Well, it’s been about a week, so it must be time for another SMOK review, wow these manufacturers really release a lot of products to the market! So what’s so special with their Devilkin kit and is it now one of the best box mods on the market? Well, it’s a 225W dual battery mod, and at face value, it looks no different to their other mods, let’s take a closer look.

The SMOK Devilkin vs ProColor Mod Kit

Design

On the face of it, the design is very similar to the SMOK Procolor, even the screen layout is the same. It’s so annoying when a manufacturer releases a new mod, with only the slightest of changes from a previous mod.

You get a whole array of colors to choose from, including; red, rainbow, which they call prism, gold, chrome, blue, and gunmetal. That said, they are all black the only color difference is the tank and the trim on the mod.

The Devilkin mod measures in at 86mm tall, a tad less than 50mm wide and a depth of 34mm making this a little bigger overall than the original ProColor, so we guess there are some changes under the hood!

The screen is a TFT 1.3 inch with high-definition, making it really easy to read all the important info like current wattage, puff timer, the resistance of the coil, voltage, a puff counter, vape mode, and a dual battery indicator.

Below the screen is the USB port and the device has a large fire button to one side. On top is your 510 connector placed on one side and houses the TFV12 tank very well indeed.

Features

Of course, there is a bit of a difference with this mod, SMOK has introduced a new upgraded user interface. Again you get into the menu by clicking the fire button 3 times. The menu is laid out completely different to other SMOK mods, but it’s still easy to understand. To flick through the menu options just click the + button.

The menu features include variable wattage (VW) mode, here you can adjust the wattage settings. Temperature control (TC) mode where you can choose your coil from Titanium, Stainless steel or Nickel and also includes a memory mode. Moving along the settings you come to the puff settings, where you can reset the puff counter etc.

Then you come to the display settings, where you can choose the color of the screen as well as adjusting the screen timeout time.

Overall the features are pretty much the same, with a new user interface, do we prefer the new one, well to us, it’s not really that much of a big deal and certainly not worth an upgrade. They should have just released this as an alternative firmware update, not a whole new device!

 

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

TFV12 Prince Tank

The main difference between the Devilkin kit and the ProColor kit is the tank, instead of the TFV8 which comes with the Procolor you get the TFV12 Prince Tank.

It’s not really that much of a big deal as they already offer this tank on many other kits including the SMOK H-PRIV 2 and the SMOK V-FIN. You can also buy it separately, it’s not by any means a brand new designed tank especially for this mod.

That said the performance of the TFV12 Prince Tank is exceptional for a prebuilt sub ohm tank, certainly one of our top sub-ohm tank choices. You get 2 coils with the kit which are the T10 Decuple 0.12-ohm coil which is best vaped from 80-110Watts and the Q4 Quadruple 0.4-ohm coil, best vaped from 60-80Watts.

The size of the SMOK Devilkin Kit shown in hand

Performance

So using the TFV12 tank with the T10 Decuple 0.12-ohm coil and setting the Devilkin to 50 watts, the flavor is somewhat muted, this is typical of a new coil and it takes about half a tank to really let the e-liquid soak into the coil. We always like to start low in wattage mode, to allow full saturation of the cotton in the coil. There’s nothing worse than burning the cotton!

Ramping the wattage up to 80 Watts really improves the general performance of this coil. The Devilkin mod handles it really well, and changing the vape mode to high, makes the mod more responsive.

The temperature control modes on the Devilkin kit are also pretty good. Testing it out we failed to burn any of the cotton inside the coil, even when the e-liquid had completely dried out, so it’s obviously working as it should and compares well with all the best electronic cigarette models that offer this feature.

 

To Conclude

Overall we were a little disappointed with the SMOK Devilkin kit, nothing to do with the performance, with the TFV12 Prince tank it produces some of the best flavors you can get from a sub-ohm kit. We were disappointed with the lack of innovation. The Devilkin kit is basically the same as the ProColor, just with a new upgraded user interface.

The performance of the mod is the same; the tank has been updated to the TFV12 Prince tank (which you could buy separately) and the design is almost the same! We wouldn’t necessarily recommend this mod as an upgrade, but if your new to vaping and fancy trying a SMOK product, then this would be a great choice, after all, they are one of the best manufacturers out there.

Smok T-Priv 3 300w Box Mod Review

Smok TPriv 3 300w box review

Smok is stepping up its T-Priv game with a major update to the popular mod. While the all-new T-Priv 3 doesn’t bring a lot of aesthetic design changes to the original mod, under the hood it’s a whole new beast that promises to bring even the most hardcore vaper to their knees. The Smok T-Priv 3 brings a mind-blowing 300 watts of pure vaping power to the field, made possible with the help of 3 18650 batteries locked away in its solid zinc alloy chassis.

While you might be tempted to think that the Smok T-Priv 3 is all brawns and no brain, it also supports the full gamut of vaping modes such as temperature control for all TC coils, a customizable TCR function, and adjustable pre-heat options. The Smok T-Priv 3 is also firmware upgradeable via its micro USB port so future refinements to the already great UI is very likely.

The Smok T-Priv 3 uses a top mounted OLED screen making it easy to view your mods status even as you’re vaping. The UI is highly customisable allowing you to choose what info is constantly displayed, not to mention it also sports a dual battery indicator giving you more information on the status of each battery at any given time. The high-quality firing bar is satisfyingly clicky with a strong tactile response, so you’ll always feel in control of your vape, and that extends to the up/down buttons as well.

Like most of Smok’s premium devices, the Smok T-Priv 3 kit comes packaged with the TFV12 Prince. Featuring a 5ml e-liquid capacity with the option to use an extension to reach a max e-liquid capacity of 8 whopping milliliters of e-liquid, you’ll hardly find the need to refill more than once a day. Bundled in the kit are Smok’s own decuple and sextuple coil heads, guaranteeing maximum vapor production as well as intense flavors with every puff.

Final Word

The TFV12 Prince tank that comes with the kit is a great addition as well thanks to its smooth airflow design and high e-liquid capacity that doesn’t require a lot of refills. The customisable RGB settings are just the added icing on the cake as they’re definitely implemented well enough to please any RGB loving vaper out there.

FLOWERMATE VAPORMAX V5.0S DRY HERB VAPORIZER REVIEW

Flowermate V5.0S Vaporizer in Hand

UPDATE: The NEW V5.0 Pro is here, featuring significant improvements over the original and V5.0s, including

  • Digital temperature settings (up to 446 degrees Fahrenheit)
  • Digital temperature controls (“+” and “-” buttons)
  • Pyrex glass mouthpiece for improved flavor
  • Super fast heat up time (max temp in 30 seconds) 

REINVENTING THE WHEEL (IN A GOOD WAY!)

The Vapormax V5.0S is the latest iteration of portable dry herb vaporizers by Flowermate. It is also the best one yet.

We reviewed the original Vapormax V a few months back, and while we really enjoyed the design, functionality, and high-quality feel to the device, there was one nagging omission: the lack of multiple temperature settings. What we especially missed was having the option of a higher heat setting, which would produce more vapor. The Vapormax V 5.0S keeps the same great feel and battery life while introducing multiple temperature settings (like most other vaporizers have now) along with a better pathway, creating a truly enjoyable experience.

 

TURNING UP THE HEAT

Since the temperature settings are the biggest addition, let’s dive straight in. The original Vapormax V reached a temperature of about 385 degrees Fahrenheit. It was a good starting point. You definitely got vapor with minimal odor and no traces of combustion. However, 385 degrees is playing it a little too safe, and it’s a few degrees shy of what recent vaporizers are putting out. It may not seem like a huge deal, but there’s a lot more vapor to extract between 385 and 415 degrees. To solve that problem, the Vapormax V5.0S let’s you choose between 385, 400, and 415 degrees — 3 very distinct settings that range in the amount of vapor, odor, and overall effect you’ll get from your device. Every setting may not be for everyone, but one of the 3 is bound to please most people.

 

(NEAR) INSTANT GRATIFICATION

When it comes to reaching the temperatures, the Vapormax V 5.0S is one of the fastest vapes we’ve reviewed. Yes, things like the Magic Flight Launch Box can heat up in an impressive 5 seconds, but the Flowermate gives you a solid, steady, and predictable temperature. It only takes 20 seconds to reach 385 degrees from a completely off state. Some vapes take 45 seconds to a minute to do the same, so let that sink in. What’s more impressive? It only takes 5 seconds to reach each higher setting. So that’s a total of 25 seconds for 400 degrees, and only 30 seconds to reach 415 degrees.

 

LONG LIFE, SHORT CHARGE

Another much-appreciated technical feat of the Flowermate are the batteries. It comes with two batteries built in, and they are built to last. Even on the highest temperature setting, you’re looking at just over 2 hours of use on a full charge. And perhaps even more appreciated is that it only takes about 3 hours to fully charge the device. In other words, if you want to use this thing a lot, go for it. You’re more likely to need a break before it does.

 

FLAVOR-CHASING

The original Vapormax produced a pretty decent flavor. This was mostly thanks to its ceramic heating chamber. And now, the V5.0S features a glass mouthpiece (vs rubber) to really bring out the best in your herbs. I didn’t think it would make that much of a difference, but it’s apparent from the very first draw to the last, the combination of higher temperatures, ceramic chamber, and glass mouthpiece produces significantly more pronounced flavor than the original. It’s a pure, flavorful vaping experience.

 

CLEAN-UP TIME

Like its predecessors, the V 5.0S is still just as easy to clean as its predecessors. A simple scraping with the including packing tool will usually do the trick, and the cleaning brush can do the rest. Occasionally you may need to either replace or clean the filter in the mouthpiece. You can unscrew the base and remove the metal screen. I say, just clean it off–it only takes some hot water and maybe some soap or isopropyl. Pop in back in, and you’re good to go. The one thing that is different is that, with the higher temperature settings, if you pack the chamber very tightly, the herbs can get stuck together a bit. So, it may take a bit more force with the packing tool, but the chamber is pretty durable–it can handle an aggressive cleaning approach.

 

CONCLUSION

With just a few small tweaks, the Vapormax V5.0S manages to be one of the best portable dry herb vaporizers we’ve reviewed at this price point. If you like the look and feel, and the price isn’t out of your budget, I think this is among the best ones you can buy right now. The vapor is pure (thanks to the new glass mouthpiece) and the clouds are thick (thanks to the higher temperature settings). And with its impressive battery life and solid build quality, this is one that’s sure to last.

ONE LAST NOTE: VERSION CONTROL

Not sure where else to put this in the review, so here it goes. Smiss, the makers of these lovely devices, loves improving and renaming, but they’re not so great at neatly organizing and clarifying all the names. Their naming schemes, unfortunately, can lead to a bit of confusion. So I’ll just break down everything that’s happening here…

First, the company is Smiss, but they never really brand themselves as such on their products. I think “Flowermate” is more like the brand name for a line of products, and not specifically the name of the device (though right now, the two seem synonymous). The “Vapormax” products have actually been around for a while. The first couple were more like AGO G5 pens and Atmos pens.

The Vapormax V is the fifth in this series (but the first in the Flowermate series). So the “V” is definitely meant to be a roman numeral, pronounced “five” but many people seemed to call it “vee” (myself included). Then… they made the Vapormax V 5.0 (vapormax five, five-point-oh?).  At this point, I say it’s safe to start pronouncing the “V” as “vee” to avoid saying “five” twice–I’m sure it’s just something that got sorta misconstrued in translation.

The tricky part is, their V5.0 is different from the V and the V5.0S. Based on my discussions with our Smiss representative, the only difference between the V and V5.0 is that they started using a glass mouthpiece instead of a rubber one. The V 5.0S, the latest, is the only model with both the glass mouthpiece and variable temperature settings.

Whew. All that may seem a bit unnecessary, now, but Smiss has said they are working on more designs and new products, so I feel like this will lead to more confusion later–best to get a head start sorting out what’s what with their naming history.

I’m real excited today to be taking a detailed look at the Hcigar Towis Aurora 80w Squonk Mod! Is my excitement justified? Let’s find out…….

This mod was sent to us for the purpose of this review. As always my views are my own.

Design and Build Quality

For those interested “Towis” are the team of designers behind the HCigar Aurora 80w Squonker.

The Aurora 80W Squonk Mod comes in a very hard wearing gift box, btw the box has no thumb spaces so you end up shaking the box a lot to open it!Hcigar Towis Aurora kit box

My Aurora is a beautiful full black brushed metal; first look at this mod the design is ergonomic making the mod very comfortable to hold in the hand, the build quality is of a high standard, the body of the mod is made of an Aluminium Alloy and comes with a white silicone e-liquid bottle installed.Hcigar Towis Aurora hold

510 Connection Port

The 510 threading is stainless steel that is fairly shallow, and sits under a square stainless steel plate. The sides are chamfered to match the body lines and is connected to the top of the squonk mod with Allen screws, the 510 Squonk pin is made of gold plated SS and sits on a silicone pad.Hcigar Towis Aurora 510 conn

Fire button/ Screen / Adjustment buttons / USB

The fire button located on the front of the device is designed for easy operation it has a nice click to it. The Aurora features easy to read 0.96-inch TFT colour screen and runs the XT80c chipset. The Aurora also supports the various working modes of VW and TC. The triple adjustment buttons allow you to alter your various settings and enter the menu function.Hcigar Towis Aurora frontThe micro USB port can be used to charge your battery – although not recommended by me, there is nothing in the manual that states firmware can be upgraded and there is no option via the menu system.Hcigar Towis Aurora usb

Front Battery door / Squonk Bottle

The front battery door has a nice large squonk hole for you to push your bottle; the door removes and reveals your battery and bottle compartment, the inside is very clean,

When the mod came to me I really had to look hard to find the battery orientation for my 18650 battery, there is a very small + at the bottom being it is the same colour as the mod it’s almost invisible, I would have liked to see the + in a contrasting colour.Hcigar Towis Aurora 18650 markThe juice bottle fits into the sled and is held by the plastic straw connecting to a metal rod, the juice bottle is 7ml and there is a spare plastic black bottle in the box.Hcigar Towis Aurora in front

Backdoor

Like the front the backdoor removable and reveals a unique slide that if slid back will allow the unit to except a 20700 or a 21700 battery.Hcigar Towis Aurora slide openTaking a look inside the battery compartment again you will now see that you have very clear white battery orientation markings, the connection points are made of gold plated SS.Hcigar Towis Aurora batt sled

Magnets

Both doors are held on by magnets, connecting to the magnets on the body of the device, 4 magnet on the front door and 6 on the back door although 2 of these are redundant, it is my opinion that the magnets are not of a sufficient strength as there is a lot of movement to both doors once in place.

Branding

There are no markings what so ever on the outside body of the Aurora, which I find kind of strange, however when you remove the backdoor in clear white print they have printed Hcigar and Aurora as well as the normal CE markings.Hcigar Towis Aurora adv2Although not clear when you remove the front door at the top of the mod you will see Aurora molded into the plastic of the wire cover.Hcigar Towis Aurora adv1

A quick how to guide

  • Fill your squonk bottle with your favourite e-liquid carefully screw back on the cap and straw, place the bottle into the mod, connecting the metal rod to the plastic straw.Hcigar Towis Aurora bot conec
  • Place your choice of battery into the mod making sure to follow the battery orientation mark/s.
  • Reassemble your doors.
  • Choose an appropriate BF RDA (with squonk pin, coils and cotton).
  • Slowly press your bottle so that the cotton gets soaked with liquid.Hcigar Towis Aurora squonking

 

Hang on what exactly is a squonking?

In “basic terms” squonking is a delivery method of liquid to your RDA via a 510 pin that has a hole in it, connected to a mod with a similar 510 pin the liquid gets delivered to your RDA from a small bottle that is placed inside the mod, you press the bottle to wet the cotton and vape as normal. Find out more about squonk mods here.

How does the Hcigar Aurora 80W Squonk Perform?

For this review I have filled the white silicone bottle with Chicken Shop Totally Tropical e-liquid and I will be using my black dead rabbit RDA with the squonk pin installed, I have a dual SS316L coils installed that read 0.14Ω.Hcigar Towis Aurora liquid mod

Wattage/Power Mode

The Aurora will fire from 5w to 80W in VW mode and wire resistance down as low as 0.05Ω.

50w normal puff strength

Gave me a decent amount of warm vapour, and good flavour! The ramp up time was pretty quick.Hcigar Towis Aurora 50 vw

Temperature Control Mode

TC 100-315°C/200-600°F and from 5w to 80w the wire resistance limit is the same as above 0.05Ω.

420f 50w power

The resulting flavour was really good; the vapour production was good and warm! The ramp up time again was pretty quick.Hcigar Towis Aurora 420TC

Dry cotton test for TC with SS316L wire, left a slight banding on the cotton.Hcigar Towis Aurora burn test dry

Menu System

The menu system for me was a bit weird until I got used to it!

I’m going to do this in VW mode but the principle is the same for TC.

  • To operate the menu press the menu button and the wattage is highlighted
  • You can use the two adjustment buttons to scroll the different settings in VW mode
  • By pressing the menu button again the setting will change colour and you will then be able to change that setting i.e. puff strength soft, normal, powerful.
  • There is a sub menu that allows you to change your screen off, brightness, auto off and language there is also an option for you to see information about the product as well as resetting it back to the factory default.

There is no off option with this mod the best you can do is either pull your battery or set the auto off, the lowest setting is 15mins, You can, however, lock the Aurora by clicking the fire button 5X to lock and 5X to unlock.

The batteries/life

The Aurora will accept 3 types of batteries 18650, 20700, 21700Hcigar Towis Aurora batteries 3

There is a little play to each type of battery once installed, however I didn’t get distracted by the slight movement.

Battery life disappointed me with 20700/21700 batteries 3.5hrs constant use! The 18650 only lasted me about 1.5hrs of constant use!

Filling the Silicone bottle

Very easy to do remove the bottle from the mod, unscrew the cap (the straw will come away with the cap) fill with your liquid, just over ¾ full to allow for the displacement of liquid due to the straw,Hcigar Towis Aurora fill bottCarefully screw the cap and straw back on to the bottle, and replace into the mod.Hcigar Towis Aurora liquid filledIt is not unusual to lose some liquid during this operation, if you do don’t fill the bottle as high next time you fill it. There are commercially available squonk fillers available on the internet which you can screw onto your 510 connection on your mod by pressing all the air out of you mod bottle it will then gravity fill your bottle (no mess) I prefer this method myself LOL.Hcigar Towis Aurora filler bottle

Door magnets

It’s got to be said the magnets for the doors are rubbish, they are far too small and weak. The doors have so much play in them that it feels like they will come off! Although this has not happened to me yet – the noise of the movement is really quite annoying.

Pros

  • Design is sound
  • Build quality is good
  • Ability to accept 3 types of battery
  • High quality finish
  • 7ml liquid capacity
  • Quick ramp up time

Cons

  • Door magnets are not strong enough
  • Noise of the door movement
  • Battery movement
  • Battery sled markings for 18650
  • Menu system can be weird at first
  • No off option
  • No firmware upgrade option

The UBoat Pod Mod By Kanger Previewed

Ooh I do like a good Pod Mod – so it’s nice to see the Kanger UBoat appear on the scene!
kanger uboat

Focus On www.urvapin.com For More Vape Start Kit.

The styling is pretty simple little mod with a textured coating.

The battery part is an automatic fire device – meaning you just inhale and it will kick in – no messing with pressing fire etc.

With this being a low power high resistance coil this is targeted at starter vapers or those who just want a little stealth device. This should be ideal for high nicotine or nicotine salt E-liquid.

This has an internal battery of 550mAh which is pretty good for a pod mod so should last well. This also has a quick charge capability with the included charging deck so shouldn’t be out of your hands long whilst charging.

uboat charging dockThe pod (the part you put in your mouth and holds the e-liquid) has a good capacity of 2ml – which sadly due to the TPD regulations is the largest capacity we can buy in the EU.

kanger uboat podPlus the beauty of this kit is the pods are refillable – so you can pick what flavours, brands and strengths of E-liquid you want – much more freedom than being tied to buying manufacturer only brand pods.

Combine this with a nice 1.5ohm ceramic coil head should be great for battery life and a nice sneaky vape!

Uboat side viewTo fill you simply pull off the pod, remove the plug and squirt E-liquid into the filling hole.

There is sadly only one colour to choose from and it’s Black!

Why have one when you can have TOO?

voopoo-too-firing

The first of its kind, Voopoo’s unconventional new box mod has been designed for increased adaptability and user customization.

Unlike traditional models that utilize a single or dual battery configuration; the TOO accommodates both single and dual battery setups depending on user preference. In practice, this means that you can power the mod up to 180 watts at top levels, with an 80-watt maximum possible when utilizing a single cell.

Fitted with the efficient and reliable Gene chip, Voopoo guarantees the fastest firing time ever recorded, clocking in at a speed of only 10 milliseconds! This impressive response time is supported by various operating modes, including a “SOFT” mode for improved outputs at high power – a feature that also serves to prolong the lifetime of premade coils.

The first box mod that can be easily adapted for single or dual battery setups.

Voopoo’s complimentary double sideslip covers provide fashionable accents to the otherwise angular device. The professional CNC finish of the main body adds a touch of sophistication and class to the overall look and feel.

An intriguing and dynamic design, the TOO 180 W box mod is a great bet for vapers who favor variety and enjoy mid- to high-powered vaping. And given Voopoo’s successes to date, they might just have a second triumph on their hands with this model!
