The Smok Stick V8 Kit Review

Vape Pen Kit That’s Perfect for Beginner Vapers

With all the new MODs and tanks coming out on a daily basis, it’s hard to find a decent vape pen that’s easy to use and tailored for beginners. It’s almost as if there’s nothing left from those good old Ego days when massive clouds were not the only thing that mattered to vapers. However, this Smok Stick V8 just might be what newbie vapers have been waiting for. Is it worth the money or should you give it a pass? Let’s find out in this thorough Smok Stick V8 Kit review!

Who’s the Smok Stick V8 For?

If you’re a beginner vaper, you’re probably already intimidated by the sheer volume and diversity of vaping devices out there. I know – making a choice under these conditions can be a little bit daunting. That said, you can cast your fears aside if you decide to go with the Smok Stick V8. One of its biggest selling points is the fact that it ditches all the bells and whistles of modern setups, opting for the one-click ease of operation.

Basically, the only thing you need to remember with this vape pen is where the fire button is located. If your tank is filled up and your battery is full, then you’re good to go. This makes Smok Stick V8 Kit a perfect vaping kit for beginners and people who are just getting into vaping. Heck, you can even gift it to your grandparents if they’re smokers – at the very least, they won’t be able to say it’s too complicated for them to use!

Packaging – The Joys of Unboxing

V8 Stick Box Includes

Smok Stick V8 Kit comes carefully packaged in a sleek black box covered with a volcano sleeve for the effect (they just couldn’t resist foreshadowing how much vapor you’ll be blowing with this one). Once you unpack it, you’ll find the battery and the tank carefully placed in their foam cutouts, protected from the dangers of transport. This is important – batteries and tanks are pretty fragile so the last thing you’d want is wiggle room. Trust me, opening a box to find your tank glass in pieces is not fun!

What’s in the box:

 

  • Smok V8 Battery
  • Smok Big Baby Beast Tank
  • V8 Baby Coil 0.15 ohm (pre-installed)
  • V8 Baby Coil 0.25 ohm (spare)
  • USB cable
  • Spare O-rings and sealing pads
  • A vape band
  • User manual
  • Authenticity card

This bad boy comes in a huge variety of colors. Personally, I like my vape pens either white or black (matte if possible) but here you can have your choice of reds, blues, greens, pinks, golds, rainbow, camouflage, rasta – you name it, Smok already did it!

 

Smok Stick V8 Colors

Design, Aesthetics & Ease of Use

As is the case with most things that come out of Smok’s workshop, you can’t really find a design fault with this kit. Both the battery and tank are machined to perfection, sitting flush on each other with no overhang or any other issues.

Because there are so little moving parts, nothing is jiggling, which is great. With MODs that have a lot of buttons or a display screen, that can be a bit of a problem – the more parts you have, the greater the chances that something will go wrong. Overall, once you assemble this kit you’ll notice that it hits the mark when it comes to size and aesthetics. It’s pretty to look at – simple yet elegant – and fits perfectly into the palm.

As for assembly, it’s pretty straightforward. The tank comes assembled but even if it didn’t, you could do it blindfolded. Just attach the coil to the bottom cap, gently slide the glass over the top and screw the top cap on. Since the top cap screws directly to the coil, make sure to align everything before tightening. That’s all there is to it

 

V8 Stick Design

 

When you want to treat yourself to a puff, just press the fire button five times to turn the battery on or off. Press and hold to heat the coil and vape on! To be on the safe side, make sure to turn the battery off when you’re carrying it in your pocket.

Stick V8 Battery Specs

Smok Stick V8 battery is beyond the words great! Seriously, it puts to shame all other vape pens I’ve tried (and I’ve tried out plenty). This is a built-in battery that is charged directly with a USB cable. Most new MODs have switched to 18650 external batteries because they can deliver more consistent power (or they need two or even three to run properly) but the battery in Stick V8 kit works great all on its own.

Don’t think that you’re going to have to charge this every couple of hours. I vape a lot through the day and during my test drives of Smok Stick V8 I found that I really only need to charge it once a day. When it has a full charge it will go on and on. That’s thanks to its 3000 mAh capacity.

 

Stick V8 mAh 3000

There’s only one button on the whole battery and that’s the fire button. That means that you won’t be able to adjust wattage but who really cares? If you’re a beginner vaper or an experienced on looking for a vape pen for on the go, this will do just fine. The wattage output is anywhere between 38 and 50 W when fully charged, which is great for coils that come with the tank. Keep in mind that the wattage will drop as your battery charge weakens. For optimal performance, don’t drain your battery too much and make sure to regularly charge it. A LED light under the fire button will start blinking when it’s time to give the battery some rest and plug it in.

Battery specifications:

 

  • Dimensions: 0.96in X 2.95in
  • Capacity: 3000 mAh
  • Stainless steel construction
  • Battery life indicator (LED)
  • Spring-loaded pin
  • 510 threads
  • Micro USB port
  • One venting hole on the bottom

TFV Big Baby Tank Specifications

Let’s move on to the Big Baby tank, the newest of Smok’s tanks in the TFV line. To make one thing clear right at the beginning – this is no baby! It’s more of a monster, both performance-wise and size-wise. So, the Big Baby pack a whopping 5ml of vape juice, rendering frequent refills completely obsolete. This is a feature that will be appreciated by both beginner and seasoned vapers. Fewer refills mean less time fiddling with the tank and fewer opportunities to break something.  Those who are familiar with Smok tanks will notice that Big Baby is just an oversized version of the original Baby tank, with all the features of that great tank.

One of those features is the excellent top-fill system. To pour vape juice into this tank all you need to do is rotate the top cap counterclockwise and locate a small opening. Make sure not to get any vape juice into the central hole; that’s your chimney and pouring juice there results in gurgling, flooding, and, generally, a very unpleasant mouthful of vape juice. Slowly add juice in without overfilling, close the top cap, and that’s it – you’re done in less than 30 seconds.

Smok Stick V8 How to Refill

Another great feature is the double bottom airflow. It’s fully adjustable, giving you an opportunity to tailor your vaping experience according to your preferences. There are two slots on each side of the bottom cap and you simply twist the cover to open or close them. If you’re looking for a cool, cloudy vape, keep the airflow open completely. For more flavor (or mouth to lung hits) make sure to close it down.

 

Smok Stick V8 TFV8 Tank

 

TFV Big Baby Tank is made of stainless steel and Pyrex glass so you know it’s made to last. It features a wide bore Delrin drip tip that might not be up your alley (it’s not up to mine) but you always have the option of switching it out for something else. I have only one problem with TFV Big Baby tank and that’s the fact that the glass is not protected in any way. Two small strips of metal running on the outside of it would make it that much harder to break, especially if you’re clumsy as I am and you’re dropping it all the time.

Tank specifications:

 

  • Diameter: 0.96in
  • Capacity: 5ml
  • Stainless steel construction
  • Pyrex Glass
  • Bottom adjustable airflow
  • Top fill system
  • Wide bore Delrin drip tip

How Does the Smok Stick V8 Perform?

Well, in one word – beautifully!

Seriously, the performance of Smok Stick V8 Kit is up there with some of the best MODs I’ve tried out. I’ve been vaping for quite some time now and have to say that this is probably the best vape pen I’ve tried. Everything is spot on – the amount of vapor is great for a vape pen of this size and battery output and the flavor doesn’t get muffled out as you increase airflow (at least, not too much).

 

There’s a slight difference in performance in relation to the coils that you use. Obviously, the 0.15 ohm coil will give you more vapor and the 0.25 ohm coil is more geared toward flavor so adjust accordingly. However, I would give both of them a 5-star rating, hands down. The battery life is unbelievable and I’m still surprised when I make it through the day without plugging it in even once. Some of my 2-battery setups require me to swap batteries in the middle of the day – not this baby!

On top of it all, Smok Stick V8 is really easy to use, clean, and maintain, which makes it a great choice for beginner vapers.

The Final Verdict

Regardless of whether you’re a beginner vaper or a seasoned vaping pro, Smok Stick V8 Kit is definitely something you want to have in your collection. For beginners, the ease of use is just too attractive to pass up on. Longtime vapers will appreciate having a solid device with sub-ohm capabilities that doesn’t require too much fiddling to set up – great for when you’re out and about or driving in your car.

The best part is that vape pen kit is so affordable that it would be a shame not to buy it. It’s a great piece of vaping gear sold at a bargain price so make sure to snatch it up right now – I’m glad I did.

SMOK G-PRIV 2 Luxe Edition Kit Review

As touchscreen Mods go, the G PRIV has always been a favorite of Vapers everywhere. When Spinfuel VAPE reviewed the SMOK G PRIV 2 I agreed with every word that reviewer had to say about it. When the SMOK G PRIV 2 Luxe Edition came in for review about a month ago, I snagged one and volunteered to write the review. Unfortunately, the G PRIV 2 and the Luxe Edition are pretty much identical except for the new TFV12 Prince tank is part of the Starter Kit now, and there are some new colors and a new exterior scheme. All this means is that if you’ve read the review on the G PRIV 2, you’re going to read a lot of the same stuff here.SMOK G-PRIV 2 Luxe Edition Kit Review - Spinfuel VAPE

The SMOK G-PRIV 2 LUXE Edition Starter Kit is a more luxurious G-PRIV 2 and features a gorgeous exterior upgrade to that of the already gorgeous G PRIV 2.

SMOK is using a prismatic frame on this Luxe edition (see photos) as well as a few other mods, including the SMOK X PRIV, as well as a Cobra Resin (honeycomb) battery cover. Other than that, the specs on both are identical. The previous G PRIV 2 used a carbon fiber weave pattern on the battery access door.

Mod Size: 85(H) x 52(W) x 27.3mm (D)
Power Range: 1W-230W
Resistance Range: 0.1Ω-2.5Ω(VW)/0.05Ω-2Ω(TC)
Temperature Range: 200°F-600°F/100°C-315°F

Temperature Range: 200°F-600°F/100°C-315°C

As impressions go, the G-PRIV 2 Luxe Edition is one classy and high performing touchscreen mod.

The SMOK G PRIV 2 LUXE Kit in Detail

When we reviewed the G PRIV 2 Kit back in October 2017 we noted that SMOK equipped the Kit Version with its then new TFV8 X-Baby Sub-Ohm. With the LUXEedition SMOK has replaced the X-Baby with the newest, and best, TFV12 Prince Sub-Ohm Tank. Each of the Prince tanks match the exterior of the new G PRIV 2 LUXE and together they form to present one of, if not the best, looking Touchscreen Mod Kits on the market. My review is with the Rainbow color scheme, and although not as stunning as the photos of the rainbow model indicate, it’s still a beautiful rainbow of colors throughout the mod and tank. I’ll talk more about the Prince Sub-Ohm a little later in this review.


The
 G-PRIV 2 LUXE Edition again features a Zinc Alloy body in a wide array of new colors options. These new colors include the aforementioned Rainbow, a Chrome Prism, A Gun Metal Prism, Matte Black, Blue, and a Gold prism color scheme.These latest offerings from SMOK not only upgrade the tank to the new Prince but have also been given a more sophisticated look and feel, along with new color schemes. Holding the G PRIV 2 LUXE should feel identical to the previous model but it’s not. It’s as though SMOK has applied a thick coat of ultra-smooth lacquer to the exteriors (they didn’t). Again, if you’ve held the G PRIV 2 you’ll know the carbon fiber back had a textured feel, not the smooth honeycomb prismatic back it has now.

The G PRIV body upholds the vertical-based design with sharp angular lines of the previous G PRIV’s, and in the center of the front panel is a large 2″ OLED “Colorful” Touchscreen. Although the display is capable of showing various colors, it is not a full-color display. The user can enter the menu system and choose from several basic colors for the fonts and icons presented on the screen.

The 2-inch screen has a resolution of “IPS 200PPI” that produces sharp images and text for a pleasant presentation of the information on the screen. More importantly, the sensitivity of the touchscreen itself is so much better than most of the touchscreen Mods I’ve reviewed, or used, in the past. While I can’t say with certainty that it is the “best” on the market, it is the best I’ve used. The screen is responsive, fast, and handles input even from fat fingers.

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

SMOK G PRIV 2 Luxe Edition Navigation

Operating the menu system on the touchscreen is somewhat similar to navigating the menu system on smartphones. All of the G PRIV 2 settings and functions are controlled through the touchscreen using a finger.

Once the user turns the device on with 5 quick clicks of the side panel fire button, the high-quality OLED screen displays a wide range information. Better still, getting into the menu doesn’t take a certain number of clicks. Instead, on the top left side of the display if the touch sensitive word “Menu”. Touch that and you’re presented with the menu screen that will take you deeper into the system. Above the side firing panel is a small button for taking the screen into stealth mode. Click once for the screen to turn off, click again for the display to light back up. Additionally, that little function button serves to lock your settings in. Press and hold for 2 seconds and the settings are locked, though you can still fire the Mod.


The G-PRIV 2 Luxe uses its bottom-oriented USB port for firmware upgrades (Mac and PC compatible), and battery charging. With the included USB cable, simply connect it end into a Mac or PC computer, visit the 
SMOK website, download the latest firmware and install.Once inside the menu system the user can view the wattage settings, temperature setting, resistance of the atomizer coil, the output current, the number of puffs, and the remaining life of each of the dual 18650 hi-amp batteries.  If the user encounters any errors, they are also shown on the display.

The G PRIV 2 LUXE Safety Features

The SMOK G-PRIV 2 Luxe, is equipped with numerous safety features. Among them are, Reverse Polarity Protection, Low/High Voltage Protection, Low Resistance Protection, Short Circuit Protection, and Over-Heating Protection.

SMOK TFV12 Prince Sub-Ohm Tank

The SMOK TFV12 Prince Tank has been my favorite tank since its release. Its ability to produce phenomenal flavor and gargantuan clouds of vapor, without having to go above 80W. This alone saves on battery life and eliquid consumption. In addition, the 8mL juice capacity makes refilling the tank a task I only need to perform two or three times a day. We’ve reviewed the Prince twice, which you read here and here. That being the case, I’ll keep my comments about the Prince short and sweet.

SMOK G-PRIV 2 Luxe Edition Kit Review - Spinfuel VAPEThe TFV12 Prince is constructed with truly high-quality materials. The body and chimney use a premium-grade 304 stainless steel. Tank glass is a high-quality borosilicate bulb-shape. The gorgeous Cobra Resin drip tips are interchangeable with other Prince tanks, but it’s been my experience that each drip tip is carefully crafted to match the color of the tank itself. SMOK recently introduced a pink Prince they call “Auto Pink”, which is, for now, only available on the X PRIV Kit. I’m tempted to buy another X PRIV just to have this cool Prince tank.

SMOK has made the task of refilling the Prince easier and more secure with access the fill port directly from the top of the tank. The security comes from a small metal button on the top cap that must be pressed before being able to swivel the top cap away from the fill port.

The Prince tank uses bottom airflow slots that are large and easy to adjust. Setting the airflow to wide open allows for incredible amounts of vapor and deep flavor, while restricting the airflow gives the user a tighter, almost MTL vape experience.

In the early days of the Prince Tank I was a little upset that the premade coil heads were proprietary, now I understand why. While the Prince has a huge capacity for eliquid, the magic is in the coils, allowing for the aforementioned performance at relatively low wattages. The optimal wattage for the 0.4-ohm V12-Prince-Q4 atop the G PRIV 2 Luxe is 75W. The G PRIV 2 Luxe Kit comes with the Q4 and the T10 coil heads.

Each coil for the Prince line is 100% pure Japanese organic cotton wicking, which means there are zero contaminants, including bleach, colorants, fungicides, and pesticides. These pure wicks provide incredible, unparalleled flavor fidelity.

Smok TFV12 Cloud Beast King

Smok TFV12 Cloud Beast King

In terms of performance the name Smok TFV12 Cloud Beast King says it all. It’s the type of tank that can fill up a whole room with vapor in less than a minute and flavor off it is excellent. It even manages to keep up the same good flavor even at high wattages and that’s definitely a pro in our books. We didn’t get any dry hits or leaks and we were more than satisfied with the overall build quality and features. It’s clearly not a tank for everyone. However if you love big clouds and don’t have a problem going through more than 20ml of e-juice daily than it’s a pretty fun toy.

If you’re the type of vaper who’s looking for massive clouds and excellent flavor, you can finally achieve this without fiddling around with an RDA. The all new Smok TFV12 Cloud Beast King is here and it’s really impressive. Finally a tank you can take up to 300W without any issues and match the power of any state of the art mod.

Older versions like the TFV4 or the TFV8 are performing great even today, but the Smok TFV12 Cloud Beast King is an absolute fog machine. We were more than amazed to see that vapor coming off it is not super-hot even at 200W. It provides a smooth and flavor rich experience and it’s definitely something for the amateur cloud chasers.

WHAT YOU GET INSIDE THE BOX

SMOK TFV12 box contents The Smok TFV12 comes with three types of coils, a replacement glass tube, a bag of spare O-rings, vape bands and gaskets, and the user manual. The coil you’ll get inside the tank is the V12-T12 0.12 Ohm bad boy, which is rated from 130 to 200W. This is ideal for producing massive clouds, but it also goes through e-liquid like a warm knife through butter.

The V12-X4 is another coil you’re going to get with the tank and this one is a quadruple version rated at 0.15 Ohms. This is more for flavor and you can use it up to 170-180W. Last but not least, there’s the V12-Q4 quadruple coil that is excellent for flavor and doesn’t go through e-liquid that fast.

IT IS AVAILABLE IN TWO VERSIONS: PRE-BUILT COILS OR TWO RBAs

According to SMOK’s website, you can also get the TFV12 tank in RBA mode, where instead of the pre-built coils it comes with two RBAs. From what we heard these do an excellent job and the good news is you can use them in single coil mode too. Unfortunately we only got the 3-coil version, so we can’t give you an objective perspective of the performance on these RBA heads. However we promise to update the review as soon as we test them out.

DESIGN AND MAIN FEATURES

SMOK TFV12 coilsThe Smok TFV12 is a big sub ohm tank. It has a base diameter of 25mm, however in its middle point surrounding the glass the diameter is 27mm. The total height is 70mm and it has a weight of just 90 grams. It’s built from good quality stainless steel and Pyrex glass and feels solid and durable. You can get it in four different colors, and besides Black, Silver and Gold there’s also a 7-color “chameleon” paint-like model. E-liquid capacity on this cloud machine is 6.0ml.

Like all other tanks from the TFV series, the Cloud Beast King has the swivel top-fill mechanism and it’s something we definitely enjoy. It makes refilling a super easy job and in the case of this bad boy is something you’ll be doing quite often. The tank also comes with adjustable airflow on the base and it’s probably a good idea to leave it wide open when vaping at over 180W.

Smok TFV8 Review

The Smok TFV8 Cloud Beast is a vape tank that has up to eight coils inside of it. With this tank, you can vape at high wattages without worrying about burning the cottonor inhaling the overheated vapor. The TFV8 Cloud Beast is crafted by Chinese company SMOK, one of the leading brands manufacturing electronic cigarettes.

 

The TFV8 is a stylish, powerful and durable tank that comes with everything you may need to vape enormous clouds (you only need e-liquid to fill the tank with). If you dream of producing immense clouds of dense vapor, SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast is the right choice. In this TFV8 review, we will tell you everything about the tank performance, design, features, advantages, and disadvantages.

SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast box imageSMOK TFV8 Kit Components

The TFV8 comes in nine colors to meet any style. Upon purchase, you get a simple cardboard box, typical for SMOK products. There are the following elements inside the box:

1x TFV8 Cloud Beast tank (the V8-T8 engine and the drip tip are preinstalled);
1x V8-T8 hyper engine coil head (with four dual parallel coils; rated at 50w-260w);
1x V8-Q4 hyper engine coil head (with quad parallel coils; 15 ohms, rated at 50w-180w);
1x V8 original turbo RBA head .28-ohm (dual Clapton coils are preinstalled);
1x extra glass tube
1x bag of screws and O-rings
1x Allen key
1x bag of Japanese organic cotton
2x vape bands (1x black and 1x orange)
1x 510 drip tip adapter
1x operation manual

SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast colors image

The Cloud Beast has an RBA base section that allows you to either use the premade coils or build your own. However, we should note that the RBA is rather basic because it’s not the core feature of the TFV8 tank.

The tank itself is quite simple. It consists of a drip tip, a top cap, a top shaft compartment, a glass tank, a coil head and a base section where the airflow control is located. There is a gold-plated 510 pin that protrudes slightly at the bottom of the tank. It allows you to use a hybrid top cap safely. However, we recommend using the tank with regular mods only for optimal performance.

The Cloud Beast has a top-fill design that allows you to refill the e-liquid easily by pushing the top cap lightly and moving it to the side. As you open it, you will see a small vape juice port. On the base of this tank, you can also see two gaping airflow holes that cool down the coil heads.

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

 

The RBA base of the tank is rather basic, but it allows you to use coils of various shapes with it. This way, you can easily mount large coils on the RBA and boast of huge clouds of dense vapor with your TFV8 tank.

SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast coil image

Quite impressive, isn’t it? Now you know why this tank is called the Beast. It’s one of the most powerful devices for cloud-chasing that you can currently find in the vaping world. Now, let’s get to the coils of the Cloud Beast since they are for sure its best feature.

The SMOK TFV8 Coils

The TFV8 coils deserve special attention. The cloud Beast comes with two coils, namely the V8-Q4, and the V8-T8. They are significantly larger compared to the rest of the sub-ohm tanks. The V8-Q4 coil consists of four parallel coils. It has the appearance of a usual prebuilt sub-ohm coil. Its inner diameter is large enough for enormous airflow.

The V8-T8 coil consists of eight coils, organized into four dual parallel coils. It makes an even larger airflow possible, which means enormous clouds. However, the taste of vapor you get with this cloud-chasing tank is merely average. It always boils down to the choice between clouds and taste.

SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast coil heads image

If you value flavor most of all, go for a small-chambered RDA and forget the Cloud Beast. But, if clouds are your passion, the TFV8 will definitely impress you.

Both the T8 and Q4 have many coils inside of them, so their surface is large when combined, and the resistance is low when combined. This way, you can pump crazy wattage through them without any trouble.

However, the SMOK TFV8 coils have some disadvantages as well. First of all, they will drain your e-liquid pretty quickly. They will do the same to your batteries as well.

We advise you to use mods with minimum three 18650 batteries or a larger mod with this tank. If you decide to use the TFV8 on devices that have dual 1850 batteries, you will see your batteries die too quickly.

Pros and Cons of the SMOK TFV8

Here are the best things about the SMOK TFV8 Cloud Beast tank:
– Enormous cloud production;
– Vapor does not overheat even when the tank is used in high watts;
– Handy top-fill design;
– 6ml e-liquid capacity;
– Vast airflow;
– Durable coils.

The Topside is a first, its a squonker with a top fill, allowing to fill the 10ml bottle by removing a cap and having to deal with the messy business of removing the bottle from the mod.

The Dovpo Topside is a regulated mod with a 0.96in OLED screen taking a single 21700 battery to power it. The mod will output 5-90W and incorporates Variable Wattage and Bypass modes. Temperature control can be added via a firmware update.

A gold plated 510 connector with a leakproof seal sits on the top side of the mod to prevent any over squonking leaks.

The Topside has 2 colours to choose from – Red and Black.

Who is it for?

A squonker who has drowned themselves in e-liquid trying to replace their squonk bottle.

If you are a squonker then you will have some point immersed yourself in e-liquid at an inconvenient moment whilst out and about. The top-fill tank is a great idea and it makes perfect sense to use the same idea to fill your squonk bottle – why didn’t anyone think of this before!?

Great thinking from Brian at The Vapor Chronicles and Dovpo. The styling looks great, functional and comfortable to hold in the hand. It might score highly for innovation of function but the styling takes its cues from the Squid Industries Double Barrel Mod.

Design Features & Usability

The atomizer is actually consisting of 5 parts:

Geekvape Zeus Dual RTA

It is compatible with both 810 & 510 drip tips (the latter with the included 810/510 adaptor). There are two 810 derlin driptips, a regular one and an additional one which covers the upper rim of the top cap’s driptip-hosting base. This 810 driptip’s design is for protecting lips when temperature rises significantly.

The 510 driptip is of 10mm-heights, while the two 810 ones have about 7.5mm-heights. Aesthetics-wise, such small height is suitable for the size of the RTA, but functionally a bit more height would be necessary.

The top cap is removed with a slight rotation, revealing two fairly large holes for easily liquid-replenishing the tank with any bottle nozzle. The top cap perfectly seals the replenishment holes, not allowing the slightest liquid’s leakage.

The two replenishment holes are hosted at the upper part of a single metal piece, incorporating the airflow adjustment ring and a double-walled “bell”, which carries the air down to the deck, as it flows between the two walls of the “bell”. The actual vaporization chamber’s bell is the smaller internal one, which is domed internally at its top, for uniformly compressing (with less turbulence) the air to the driptip (increasing thus flavour).

The airflow ring (carrying a stopper) hosts two opposite-positioned quite large air holes and shallow notches, allowing a stable grip of the airflow ring for easily rotating/adjusting it.

The same hollow notches are hosted at the outer periphery of the base for an adequate grip of the base when screwing/unscrewing it from the rest of the tank.

The double-walled “bell” is screwed on the outer periphery of the deck, allowing the internal vaporization chamber’s bell to roundly air-seal the deck, but permitting the air to enter through the deck’s two large, opposite-positioned air-inlet slots. The air incoming to the deck through these air-inlet slots are sideways air-feeding the whole lateral cylindrical surface of the coils, if the coil-builds are properly setup on the deck.

The deck is a double-coil postless GTA-styled one, with four flat-headed screws for tightening the two coils’ leads, approached from the periphery of the deck. But, their flat heads are small and their slit is hollow.

The usual tricky part of using postless decks is how to adjust cutting the appropriate length of the coil’s leads. This appropriate coil leads’ length is necessary for positioning the coil to the appropriate height over the deck in accordance to its air-inlet holes. It needs some “getting used to it” or you need a tool if you’re inexperienced. However, such tool is not included in the packaging, as it is in the case of the Wotofo Recurve atomizer.

Geekvape Zeus Dual RTA Performance

The whole cooperative design of the “bell” and the deck ensures that, as the air enters from the airflow ring’s holes, it is first uniformly diffused between the two walls of the “bell” and then inserted to the deck through its two large air-inlet slots, hitting the two coils sideways.

This layout arrangement results in vapour production of substantial quantity and density, if two coils are setup. But, the available deck’s space for setting up two coils is limited and care must be taken to avoid touching the two coils together (if they are wide) or contacting to the air-inlet “bars” that form the deck’s air-inlet slots (if they are long). Two coils of 3.5mm outer diameter need special attention to be properly positioned. In the case of setting up a single coil, you should use a larger diameter pivot-core to wrap your coil for ensuring a large enough coil with an outer periphery that gets close enough to the air-inlet slots of the deck.

Check in the following photos the installation of two 3mm inner-diameter Clapton coils of 0.2Ω total resistance (best operated at 60W-70W), making clear that a novice builder should wrap two coils of a 2.5mm diameter pivot-core.

However, coils should not be wrapped around a smaller than 2.5mm-diameter pivot-core, for ensuring that enough cotton can be tightly stuffed inside the coils (for increased capillary action – Bernoulli Effect), when the wick’s tails are touching down to the bottom of the base’s well. In this case, no combing of the wick’s tails is needed, but they should properly fill the wick’s holes of the deck. Such a setup presents no issues of wick’s liquid saturation.

Conclusion

The produced vapour is rich and, regarding its temperature, is cool to lukewarm. Quite satisfactory is the flavour’s intensity, balanced with flavour’s integration. The result is a vaping experience memorable for the provided taste, and the smoothness and quietness of the provided puff.

The atomizer doesn’t get too hot, even under chain vaping for long.

Liquid consumption is par with the dual-coil RTA’s category.

All in all, it’s an RTA of a premium build quality, functionality and performance. It is more suitable for experienced vapers.
