Finally, we have really interesting news – there are so few of them lately) Probably, heeding the wishes of its fans, THC released a single-spiral tank, based on its past developments. Without unnecessary snot familiar.
The capacity is small, but the reviewers have already “shown” that in fact it is one and a half times as large as it was declared. In addition, the bundle includes a bubble “glass”, made for some reason from plastic, which will increase the capacity to 4.5 ml.
By the way, the novelty comes in an aluminum cylinder, the base of which is a stand for atomizers with a 510th connector.
Deca brand admirers should be familiar even by touch. This is a complete copy of Tauren Solo RDA .
Literally a few words about it – the deck is deck-free, designed for fixing one helix, and wound in any direction.
For blowing here there is still a sieve of 28 holes in the answer. Half of them blow a spiral from below, the remainder is equally divided on the sides.
Places for cotton left decently, limiters are available. In addition, on the walls of the “mines” for cotton, special grooves are made to better feed with liquid.
The adjustment of the blower is implemented in a standard way – a rotating ring with risks.
Joyetech has released the eRoll Mac Advanced Kit. The device consists of a compact docking station with a capacity of 2000 mAh, a narrow 11-watt buttonless button and a pair of spare cartridges with ceramic evaporators.
On May 8, Joyetech announced an eRoll Mac Advanced Kit device on Instagram . The charging case was made in a smooth rectangular shape with rounded corners and a narrow profile. The color range is limited to three options – silver, red and black. At the end made charge indicators and USB-port Type-C.
The docking station has a battery with a margin of 2000 mAh, a full charge of no more than 2A can be carried out in 90 minutes thanks to an advanced USB port. Under the wide magnetic panel there is a bed for its plate and two additional cartridges.
Its dimensions resemble a cigarette lengthened to 100 mm. The replaceable cartridge is fixed by means of a thread, completed with a ceramic evaporator of 1.2 Ohms and holds 0.55 ml. For refueling it is enough to take a rounded driptip The battery has a capacity of 180 mAh. The charge connector is on the bottom. Activation occurs when tightening, the maximum power reaches a value of 11 watts.
The package includes three cartridges, a USB cable and instructions.
The team Lost Vape can put a monument for the fact that they have opened a new niche of advanced systems on the cartridges. There are few alternatives to Orion , but this topic is definitely interesting to the public. A new milestone in the development of this segment was launched by the guys from Smoant, unexpectedly rolling out a miracle called Pasito .
Let’s be frank and recognize that the designers of Lost Vape again worked better than all praises and the only way out for competitors was to “borrow” the format. Smoant was no exception, but still tried and rolled out a rather interesting product. Most of all in this toy I like the slim body and the cool combination Resinpanels and bright drip types. At the moment, only 4 colors are available, but I am sure thatSmoant will not rust and soon other versions will appear.
Height – 102 mm. Width – 38 mm. Thickness – 18 mm.
Interesting in terms of performance characteristics begin with the battery pack. Works boxing under the management of its own production board – ANT . The user has several power levels available – 10/13/16/20 / 25W. Switching takes place with a special button. Yes, there is no puff sensor and you have to work with your finger to activate the device 🙂
Atomizer resistance is limited to the following range – from 0.3 to 3 ohm. The battery itself is built-in and has a capacity of 1100 mah (3.2-4.2V). Here, the guys decided to show off a little and instead of the usual micro usb Type – C (5V / 1A) is used. I will not comment on the need and the practical side of such a decision – we simply count it as an additional bun. The device supports communication with the outside world through a standard LED indicator.
Here we come to the main highlight of the novelty. So, Pasito works on completely standard cartridges. Available evaporators – MTL / Ni-80 / 1.4 ohm; DTL / Mesh / 0.6 ohm. But this users decided not to limit. If you wish, you can purchase a full RBAbase on one helix. Cool? I believe that the idea will definitely find fans and has a future. The capacity of the tank for the liquid – 3 ml. All this is complemented by an adjustable top-blowing system.
I have repeatedly said that Juul became a phenomenon in vaping. Maybe this is not so noticeable with us, but at home in the USA this toy captured the market. This is not to say that the era of closed systems in the industry actually began with this device. Not surprisingly, such popularity has led to interest from other manufacturers. For example, Jmate are engaged in the production of accessories under the Juul and have already achieved some success. P
IMHO, this thing looks like that can cause a feeling of envy even among those who do not like Juul. Agree, very worthy, as for a regular accessory. For those who perceive vaping, as part of their style will be interesting. But this little thing not only looks beautiful, but also has useful functionality.
Height – 100 mm. Width – 56 mm. Thickness – 12 mm.
There are three compartments in the case – with a contact group for the battery and two for cartridges. The capacity of the built-in battery is 1200 mah, which should be enough for several recharges (5V / 500mAh). Charging of the bank itself takes place via micro usb (5V / 1A). Full charge cycle – 90 minutes.
Powerdrive car charger
In my opinion, the most successful (in terms of public interest) proposal of the manufacturer. As it is easy to guess, we have a car charger. The principle of work should be familiar to most readers. Roughly speaking, the power supply becomes a cigarette lighter, and at the other end there is a Juul compartment and a separate usb for other purposes.
– 12V / 24V; – 5V 500 mAh; – 5V 1A (usb).
Another poverbank, but made in a completely different format. And to be honest, it is even cooler than the first version! Owner go unnoticed with such a thing just will not work. In terms of performance characteristics there are some minor differences. First, the capacity dropped to 800 mah (5V / 1A). Secondly, it fits as many as three spare cartridges. Thirdly, a LED indicator appeared, the utility of which is difficult to overestimate.
Height – 115 mm. Width – 31 mm. Thickness – 29 mm.
Eleaf has released the iStick Mix Kit. The “epoxy” kit was assembled from a 160-watt two-battery box-mod box and an unattended Ello Pop tank with a rubberized bulb.
On March 28, Eleaf presented an Eleaf iStick Mix Kit device on instagram . The boxmod was packed in a rectangular case with rounded corners and a convex silhouette. The ends trimmed polymer panels that combine different patterns and patterns, in the palette of colors included five variations. A familiar set was placed on a narrow front side – a round fire button, a monochrome display and two control keys. USB port installed on the side. Batteries hidden under one of the removable sidewalls.
The branded Avatar Chip card supports varivatt, thermal control, bypass and several memory modes. Output power can reach 160 watts. Resistance ranges from 0.05 to 3.0 ohms. Two 18650 batteries are used for power supply. When charging via USB, you can use up to 2.5A current.
The body of the complete tank Ello Pop is made of stainless steel and is completed with an “epoxy” drip tip in the fashion color. The filling hole is under a massive firebox with protection from playful children’s hands. Glasses of plump flasks are surrounded by thin rubber rings. There is a rotating ring blowing with wide notches.
Recently, it is less and less common on the shelves of vape shops (including virtual ones) to meet the classic varivolts, which at one time were the most popular among vapers. They were replaced by simpler and more functional options, but this does not mean that the device format itself is forgotten, since from time to time well-known manufacturers release new items of this kind. One of the legendary devices in this class was the varivat from the well-known Chinese company Teslacigs – Invader, which is no longer produced by the Chinese in its original form. The company has already released several devices from this series and the last of them is the Teslacigs Invader 4X Vape Kit – still the same version, but already in a plastic case, light and slightly resembling its ancestor. It’s hard to say whether this starter kit is worthy of the proud name Invader,
Teslacigs Invader 4X Vape Kit is a starter kit consisting of a two-battery option with the ability to change the operating voltage, and an easy-to-use double-helix drip that will allow you to get enough taste and pile. The Invader 4X box mod somewhat resembles its predecessors, but it is made of plastic, which makes it easier and more practical. Dripka, which is equipped with a starter kit, does not differ by innovative technologies, but at the same time it is easy to maintain and use and allows you to get quite a decent taste and bulk. Teslacigs offers this starter kit in four colors – black, blue, red and white.
We should pay tribute to the company Teslacigs, which is always trying to adequately complete their devices, and especially the start kits. Therefore, in a fairly simple and unobtrusive white box, the vaper waits for:
Varivatt Invader 4X mod;
Dip atomizer Invader 4X RDA;
Two prewound spirals;
USB charging cable;
Certificate of originality.
You can honestly say that there is a box so that you can assemble a device right after unpacking and begin to soar.
Varivatt Invader 4X mod
Immediately, you will have to upset those lovers of the good old Invader, made of aluminum alloy and resembling a tin box of an army type, that the Invader 4X mod resembles its name only. Why did Teslacigs decide to move away from a bit of a brutal and crude concept of options? This is a million question. But the fact remains that the Invader 4X mod is made of plastic. There is, of course, a significant plus in this – it weighs only 75.5 grams without batteries, which in its own way can not but rejoice, since it is no longer a problem to carry it in your pocket. In this case, it is worth paying tribute to the manufacturer regarding ergonomics – the device turned out to be compact and convenient to use. The fitting diameter of the device is 25 mm, so there will be no problems with the selection and installation of the rip instead of the complete one.
Invader 4X mod is a fairly traditional varivolt, which is controlled by a potentiometer located at the bottom of one of the side edges. In this version, the vaper itself can also control the voltage applied to the coil, within 3-8 Volts. The minimum resistance with which the mod is capable of working is 0.08 ohms, which is quite enough for many vapers. At the same time, the device is equipped with all the protections necessary for safe and stable operation.
The device is designed for a maximum power of 280 watts, provided by two 18650 batteries, although for such an indicator of power, clearly two batteries will not be enough. The installation of batteries is done by removing one of the side panels, held with fairly strong magnets. If necessary, batteries can be charged with a current of 2A using the micro-USB connector located on the side opposite to the battery compartment.
Dip atomizer Invader 4X RDA
Drip atomizer Invader 4X RDA in its construction very much resembles Mad Dog 2 from Desire, and it cannot be said that this is bad, since the drip can be safely attributed to a stable middle class.
The base in dripke is two-column with holes for the installation of two spirals. Fastening spirals made from the top, which is very convenient and practical. Blowing the bottom-side, allowing you to get quite decent taste transfer and bulk. The bath is deep enough, containing 1.2 ml of liquid, which is a normal indicator for a drip of this class.
Conclusions and impressions
Despite the fact that the Teslacigs Invader 4X Vape Kit is “not the same”, the starter kit will definitely interest many, because even with a plastic case it has all the same functionality. The Teslacigs Invader 4X Vape Kit is a simple and seemingly uncomplicated set, but it will allow the vaper, who prefers to use the varivolt instead of the varivatt, to get rather high performance indicators.
Exvape Expromizer V4 MTL RTACase material: stainless steel Atomizer type: RTA Capacity: 2 ml Diameter: 23 / 23.5mm maximum Height: 56mm with Drip type / 43mm without Drip type Connector: 510, pin gold-plated Weight:74.5g Color: see photo below Options – Expromizer V4 MTL RTA – Screwdriver – Spare Orings
– spare screws – spare glass – extra tip Drip type – User Guide I have to say – this is my first acquaintance with the brand firsthand, therefore, no comparisons with previous versions of me do not wait – is not competent. Well, almost no) The exterior of our hero in a European way is prim and neat, I quite liked him. Moreover, I was pleased with the fact that the 4th version has become much more pleasant to the eye and hand than the “square-angled” predecessors. The edges are rounded, there are almost no sharp and protruding parts – in a word the impromiser “looked like a man”, but did not lose the brutal and “truculent” bow.
About the dimensions should be said separately – the device is not small, comparable to about the second siren. And fans of the brand should just jump for joy – after all, it is less than the third version, even in the 2-ml performance almost by a centimeter, not to mention the 4-ml. Since all the parts are metal, and, moreover, massive, the weight is also decent. Drip type is made of metal, a plastic tip is threaded. Landing 510th, and there is a small take-off on the cover – its diameter is 13mm. The inner hole is about 2mm with a penny. In work, he is quite good, but he will water you with condensate, and regularly and not slowly – this is definitely a minus. In order to somehow smooth the impression, the developers put a replaceable pill of a dolrin in a dark color in a box.
The lid on the threaded connection, will have to twist a little, and get into the thread comfortably. But! The risks are very smooth. And the thickness of the cover is small – almost nothing to grab. Therefore, it is not necessary to twist it very tightly, later we will return to this point. Holes for refueling are sufficient. They are recessed below the sides, I do not squeeze out outside – all good.
Below we stumble on the tightening adjustment ring with a stopper. The risks are also very smooth, and the origings are very dense. Therefore, the adjustment of the blower is a painstaking and labor-intensive matter, and we will return to this point later too. In total there are six air intake holes, but they are very small. Therefore, at the output, even on all open holes, we obtain a tight pull. It is comparable, for example, with the second largest single hole in the second siren. While one open slightly tighter penultimate hole on the siren. In short, the tightness of the tight – it is for those who like to glue the cheeks.
The capacity for such a bandura is very small, and in my case it will not be possible to increase it – the complete glass is exactly the same. You can not say about the other version – there it will increase it twice. By the way, a plastic “glass” in the tone of a pimple of a drip type is preset, but the spare one is glass. The dome, as you rightly guessed, is double – it’s still a non-spill construct, after all. The diameter of the mine is about 3mm, internal processing under the cone. The diameter of the evaporation chamber is approximately 13mm. In the lower part, eight nozzles of the air channel are visible – then the air travels through the channels inside the deck. And on the basis of the sidewall, decent saw cuts for supplying liquid to the cotton are visible, and this process is adjustable. It is worth staying in more detail.
Adjusting the feed is of course cool – you can shut it off while refueling or not using an atom, but this is not the case. And all because it is very free, no matter how I tighten the pin, the tank turns very easily. Moreover, this procedure can be done only with an atom twisted on a mod. As you may guess, in connection with this fact, the procedure for adjusting the tightening, unscrewing the tank cap, and unscrewing the tank itself from the mod is very difficult. Otherwise, it should be held behind glass or base, but even this will not help you in the last manipulation, therefore you will have to be content with a strong jerk. Thanks at least for the fact that the same constructive will not allow you to tighten the tank strongly on the mod. Deca looks very simple and simple.
In total there are two racks (5.5mm distance between them) for correct fixation of only one spiral, wound in any direction. Screws are figured, spare ones are similar, there are boards on both sides of them and they are not high – this is good. On the outside of the sides of the saw cut, for bending the legs of the spiral during fixation. It seems that everything is clear, but there is a nuance – racks less than one-millimeter rise above the airflow. Therefore, to search for TX, you will have to lift a spiral very high, making its legs in the manner of a gable roof. Well, oh well – this is not very critical, although admitting for MTL is rather strange.
As a blowing nozzle at the bottom, its diameter is a millimeter with a small one. There is plenty of space for wadding, you can not even comb it after installation. Limiters are available, they also made three holes on each side – the latter is smaller. It is through them that the feed is adjusted. For a 50/50 liquid, even the smallest hole is enough, but I was more comfortable with two. There can be no talk of zhizhelovodaniya – everything is clear, and I did not overflow.
Well, below will be a “sheet” about the taste transfer. There is a taste here, it is good, but I must admit, he was not impressed. Perhaps, in advance, I tuned in that such an “eminent” brand simply must be, if not a reference, then at least cool. But alas, it is not. I would call it an average – here I want to note that I, too, refer to the Beers as an average for this indicator. But our hero still overtakes them noticeably. And yet, whatever one may say, he does not reach, as for me, even to the level of the same frescia, not to mention the siren No. 2. As for the TX, here, too, is not quite “his day” – and I would also call TX the middle one, and with a downward slant. This is despite the fact that I decently pulled up a spiral over the blower. In defense, I want to add that the taste of the liquids I knew seemed much “softer”, probably the merit of quite a moderate level of TX.
Pin is gold plated and it is customizable, if you can call it that. Perhaps this is useful to someone. Impressions of use To begin with, I was pleased with the quality of performance – Oriing threads and the fact that the tank is fully collapsible. However, for such a sum, I was probably wasting my time in hoping to get a chic copy of the transfer of taste and the level of TX. Maybe this ultimately hindered me in my assessment, although I still don’t think so. I don’t exactly linger on this copy on the table, because it’s very massive, well, God bless it, it didn’t catch me exactly. And the saddest thing – it went around the less well-known, and most importantly, the competitors who were twice cheaper. Probably the most expressive of its advantages I would call the impenetrability and the ability to adjust the slush feed, even if it was made a little crooked.
Perhaps, I treated him too critically, but as it is, there are as many minuses as there are pluses. Therefore, it seems to me that the lot of this novelty is only “true fans” of the brand. Well, perhaps, even those who appreciate the quality of performance and a decent amount of parts into which the atomizer is disassembled)
Already every day in a row, we start with a new product from VOOPOO. Yes, these guys are prepared for the last exhibition, perhaps more fiercely than all manufacturers. Again, the new device belongs to the AIO segment. Looking ahead, I will say that it doesn’t carry anything supernatural in itself – so is an ordinary device, but it’s not without an interesting moment.
Dimensions: 85.7 x 28.8 x 12.4mm Weight: 30g Case material: aluminum alloy + plastic Power: built-in 420mAh Cartridge capacity: 1.8ml Evaporator resistance: 1.6Ω Output power: 6 – 12W Voltage range: 3.2 – 4.2V Operation mode:POWER (thermo control mode) Protection: from low / high resistance, overheating, short circuit, overcharge / overdischarge Connector type: magnetic Screen / diagonal: no Micro-USB port / charging: yes, charging current 0.35A Color: see photo below
Options – Find S mod – replaceable cartridge (preinstalled) – USB cable – user manual – warranty card – chip certificate
The appearance of the device is pretty neat, the form factor is convenient, the dimensions are small – ergonomics and stealth should be expected decent. The decor again rules the contrast of colors – this time, the developers have divided the device with a vertical line. And what really is different.)
The manufacturer did not stint with the assortment of color design, and he presented six options right from the start – here you’re not a smoldering classic, and bright spots for the coming summer season.
Cartridge medium capacity, it will refuel the side. However, this does not mean that it will be possible to do this without extracting it directly from the mod. A silicone plug seals the causative hole. The resistance of the built-in evaporator is also average.
The main body is equipped with a built-in battery of a very small capacity. A full charge cycle takes just over one hour, the causal connector is placed on the bottom of the device.
There are no buttons for a fayer on the body of a mod, hence the conclusion – it is activated by tightening. But there is the smallest “baby” LED indicator, it will inform its owner about the remnants of the “vitality” of the battery.
All this farm is managed by a new, but already familiar to you, chipset. By the way, the device has implemented the functionality of “thermal monitoring”, therefore, the developers promise life without Garik.
I have not yet met an adequate price tag, because the novelty has not yet laid down on the shelves of online shopping sites.
The Freemax Twister kit is the latest release from Freemax. The Twister comes with a very respectable inbuilt 2300mAh battery and offers 80W variable wattage. Sitting atop the Twister is the new Fireluke 2 Tank.
The Freemax Twister is an excellent size, lightweight and portable and a great starter kit for beginners or a great carry round for established Vapers alike.
I received the Freemax Twister 80W Starter Kit in Red from AVE40.COM but the kit does come in various other designs and colours.
The Twister Kit was sent to me for the purposes of review. As always, I will give you my own, honest opinion of this product after a lengthy testing period.

Design and Build Quality
Freemax Twister 80W Mod
I absolutely love the design of the Freemax Twister. Admittedly, it might not be everyone’s cup of tea but the retro 90’s look, for me, is a refreshing style to hit the shelves at the beginning of 2019.
The build quality is excellent, the finish is superb. No rattles or loose parts to be seen or heard. The kit is really lightweight and portable and sits in the hand with ease with the size makes for easy carrying in your pocket or bag.
One thing I will mention, though this can’t be found out with a one or two week test, is the sturdiness of the “Twister” wattage changer sitting at the bottom of the device. After all, that is going to take the brunt of the knocks and is on the base where you sit the device down.
The device itself is finished very nicely, no sharp corners or awkward protruding edges and not a hint of a rattle anywhere.
The fire button on this device is ideally placed to be used with either the finger or the thumb.
You press the button to instantly fire the device and five quick presses powers on and off the device.
Freemax Fireluke 2 Tank
I haven’t, until recently, been a user of stock coil Tanks. I have always used rebuildable RTA’s as that’s where you would get all the flavour. That is, until I got a Freemax Mesh Pro Tank. Stock coils have certainly come a long way in the last year or so.
The Freemax Fireluke 2 Tank certainly doesn’t disappoint in flavour or the looks department as it matches seamlessly with the Freemax Twister battery.
Changing the Coil
To insert the coil into the tank, simply screw in the coil to the bottom part of the Tank, put the Glass over the bottom section then simply screw the top part of the tank down.
How To Fill The Fireluke 2 Tank
Filling the Fireluke 2 Tank couldn’t be simpler.
Push back the top cover at the red dot until the cap goes back no further.
You will be met by a sizeable slot to put your e-liquid in.
Close up the top cover.
Freemax Twister 80W
So, the Freemax Twister 80W is a tube Mod. A tube mod with an inbuilt 2300mAh battery and marketed as a starter kit.
Boy, I wish there were starter kits out there like this when I switched from cigarettes to vaping, life would have been so much easier. New vapers today have a huge selection of kits to start off with and the Freemax Twister would be right up there at the top of the pile for me.
The design is excellent with a huge retro look that could have been pulled right out of the 90’s. It’s slim and lightweight and has enough power from the internal battery to last a good 8 to 10 hours depending on how you vape.
Some people will say that they don’t like the design. Some people will probably come out and say this is aimed at “younger” vapers. Everyone is different and everyone will have an opinion, after all, that’s what makes the world such a brighter place.
I for one love it and I can tell you, I’m no youth coming up to 50 years old.
How does the Freemax Twister Kit Perform?
Well, upon receiving this kit I was really looking forward to using it. The kit had everything a new vaper needed. A simple mod with no screen, no temperature controlor other menu settings to have to rifle through and change.
An updated Fireluke 2 Tank. How could they beat the original Fireluke Mesh Tank that Michelle loved so much and one that got a 9.9 rating?
Well, let me tell you, the Fireluke 2 is a 10/10 every day and I believe they have addressed some of the downfalls of the original. No longer do you have to wait for the coil to prime.
Although I wouldn’t recommend you put your e-liquid in the tank and start vaping from the off, certainly after a minute it is ready to go.
The kit as a whole performs very well indeed.
Changing your wattage could not be easier. A simple twist in either direction and it’s changed. You can choose from 5-80W.
This kit is a new vapers dream. Saying that, this is also a superb kit for the discerning vaper out there.
Flavour and Vapour Production
I won’t beat about the bush with this section of the review. The flavour from this tank is a 10/10 for a stock coil tank. Testing this against some of my rebuildable RTA’s matches and in some cases, beats them. As for cloud, you aren’t going to win a cloud comp with it but you get a decent vapor production from the Fireluke 2 tank.
I used the pre-installed X2 Mesh Coil and it was still going strong after 3 weeks.
Great build quality
Top Notch Flavour
Ease of use
Quick firing Mod
Good Battery Life
Questionable longevity of the Wattage Twister (Subjective)
My Final Thoughts
I have really enjoyed my time testing out the Freemax Twister Kit. Although I wouldn’t solely put this kit down to starters. I’m sure even some hardened vapers out there will want to have this kit in their arsenal. There isn’t any reason you shouldn’t go out and buy this kit.
My only real concern would be the Wattage Twister/Selector at the bottom of the device although in the time I have tested the device I haven’t had a problem at all and it feels very sturdy. Only time will tell if this remains the fact after a few months usage.
If you’re looking for a simple to use, lightweight and above all crazy cheap setup to get you started on your advanced vaping journey, the Manto Mini all-in-one kit is definitely worth your consideration. You get a single 18650 unregulated mod that does however offer all the protections of a regulated device, as well as a very basic but decent RDA. It doesn’t really sound like a lot, but you can buy this kit for less than $25, which is less than most people spend on a sub-ohm tank.
The Manto Mini comes in a yellow cardboard box with a picture of the included Manto Mini mod and Metis RDA on the front, and a list of contents, legal warnings and company information, on the back.
Inside the box we have the colorful Manto Mini mod sitting snug in a Styrofoam holder next to the 24mm Metis RDA and a short micro-USB cable for charging. You also get a small bag of accessories for the atomizer (small screwdriver, some spare screws and o-rings) as well as a user manual, battery protection card and promotional leaflets.
Design and Build Quality
The Rincoe Manto Mini is designed to be compact and lightweight. And when I say lightweight, I mean light as a feather. To be honest, the first time I pulled it out of the packaging, I though the company had messed up and send me a simple mockup instead of a functioning vape mod. It turns out that this thing is made out of polycarbonate, a plastic-like material that’s not only incredibly light but very durable as well. Now, I didn’t really put it to the test, and I don’t suggest you do wither (unless you have $25 to burn, in which case, knock yourself and the mod out), but I understand that the Manto Mini is shockproof and can handle some punishment.
The Manto Mini measures only 80mm x 41mm x 25mm, which is really compact, even for a single 18650 vape mod. The polycarbonate has a rubberized finish that almost feels like resin to the touch and the mods come in a variety of paint finishes, from abstract designs to splatter patterns. It’s a cool look, to be honest, and a refreshing break from the classic color combinations.
At the top, we have a standard 510 connection featuring a spring-loaded, gold-plated pin. The conection isn’t centered but that wouldn’t have made much difference, because the mod is only 25mm wide so any atomizer with a larger diameter than that would have given you some overhang. This way, however, the most you can get away with is 24mm.
On the front side of the Manto Mini we have a shield-shaped plastic fire button with a small LED light embedded in it, and a micro-USB port for charging, near the bottom. On the opposite side, we have a magnetic battery door held in place by two pairs of very powerful magnets. The plastic feel of the battery door doesn’t really scream quality, but this is one of the sturdiest magnetic doors I’ve ever seen. Once it snaps into place, it requires some serious force to detach and there’s no rattling whatsoever.
The battery compartment is nice and clean, features clear polarity symbols, as well as a textile ribbon to help you take out the battery easier. The one thing I don’t like about the battery compartment is the pair of extra large venting slots on the side of the device. You can literally see the battery inside, or you can see right through the mod when a battery isn’t inserted, and it just isn’t a very good solution in my opinion. It looks unsafe, in my opinion. Let’s say you put this thing in your purse and something pointy and metallic touches the battery inside the mod. If the insulation is perfect, you should be ok, but if your wrapper is damaged or accidentally ripped by that metallic object, you have a serious problem. The battery door is supposed to insulate the battery inside the mod, and this one does a poor job of that.
All in all, the Rincoe Manto Mini is a basic vape mod, with a lightweight if somewhat cheap-feeling body. But somehow, in this case that cheap feeling kind of makes sense because this really is a very cheap kit. So if that’s what you’re looking for, and it’s what you expect, it shouldn’t be an issue. However, the exposed battery can be a problem, and I highly recommend you always be care careful when storing the Manto Mini, making sure there’s nothing metallic that can come in contact with the battery.
Battery Life and Performance
The Manto Mini is powered by a single 18650 battery and depending on the resistance of your atomizer, it can output up to 90W of power. Ideally, this device would have been compatible with 20700 or even 21700 batteries, as this would have improved battery life quite a bit. One 18650 battery won’t last you very long, especially if you’re using a low resistance build in your atomizer, so I highly recommend taking a spare battery with you when you’re on the go.
This is an unregulated device that pulls power straight from the battery. There’s no variable wattage/voltage to set and no options to tweak. You just push the fire button and it fires whatever voltage is left in the battery, like a mechanical mod. But this isn’t a mech. Even though there’s no display or adjustment buttons, the Manto Mini does have a built-in PCB albeit only for protections. In case of a short-circuit, overheating, low battery voltage or reverse battery polarity, the mod will cut off power to protect you. It’s basically the same system as in the Wismec Luxotic BF, a mechanical mod with built-in protections.
The Rincoe Manto Mini works with resistances ranging between 0.08Ω and 5Ω, anything below or over those values will cause the LED on the fire button to flash three times and the mod will not fire.
Performance-wise, the Manto Mini mod is comparable to a mechanical mod. It’s a fast firing device, but because it pulls power straight from the battery, you tend to notice a drop in power as the voltage goes down. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about the battery voltage dropping too low (under 3V) as the mod will cut off power for safety reasons.
The Metis RDA
The Rincoe Metis is a very basic RDA. In that regard it pairs really well with the Rincoe Manto Mini, which is a basic vape mod. It measures 24mm in diameter, features an 810 drip tip and a classic two-post build deck that’s most suitable for dual-builds. The two airflow slots on the side of the barrel are mirrored, so you can’t close one while leaving the other open. I personally would have liked a single-coil option, but again, you can’t really complain too much about a kit that costs under $25.
To be perfectly honest, this isn’t the kind of RDA I’d use on a daily basis, because it’s so rudimentary, but it definitely works for someone just getting into drippers and advanced vaping setups. It doesn’t put out the best flavor, but you can chug some thick clouds with the right coil setup.
The Metis RDA isn’t the most advanced dripper money can buy, but it’s easy to build on, cheap and offers decent performance. What more can you ask for?
The Rincoe Manto Mini has its issues. The polycarbonate body of the Manto Mini mod feels cheap, the battery venting slots are a lot bigger than they should be, and it lacks any kind of features. The Metis RDA is a bare-bone device as well, although it does get the job done. But despite all its flaws, it’s hard to ignore the incredibly attractive price point. This may not be the vaping setup of your dreams, but if you’re looking for something very cheap, lightweight and that works as intended, the Manto Mini is at least worth your consideration.
