Reviewer comments on business characteristics

Purge, it is the American moderator High End who has the wind in sails among the fans of tubular mechanical mods. Finally, those who are willing to put several hundred euros in this passion that can be the vape. Indeed, to consider a purchase at this price, you must be both a bit of vape and beautiful objects.

But, to style her mods, Purge offers drippers cut for power-vaping. The last release date is none other than Carnage. It is an 25mm dripper of all brass diameter, designed to accommodate one or two coils.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality

As soon as it is removed from its ridiculous packaging (we will return), we discover a beautiful piece. Our Carnage is massive, its 25mm diameter and naval brass 464 give it a rewarding aspect of marine antiquity. Its design is simple: a body pierced with two beautiful slits, topped with a slightly domed top-cap and knurled edges. In its summit throne a drip-tip of beautiful diameter in ... Ultem, the unavoidable material of the moment.


When we take his barrel engraved with his aggressive patronymic in a vintage typo and his top-cap, we find two beautiful pieces perfectly machined and we discover the dome that is hidden under the top-cap.


But we also discover this particular plateau with asymmetrical studs. Indeed, the negative pole is a simple "u" equipped with a vise screw as found on the skywalker from UD. The positive pole is more atypical. A rather thick brass bar is held in place on the long terminal by two flat head screws. This plateau seems ready to welcome some exotic montages.

To make contact with the mod, we notice a pine 510 solid copper. It comes with a spare BF silver screw, excuse the little ...


The joints in place hold well, even very well ... it will play a little muscle during the first disassembly. Then, by lubricating the joints, everything goes in order while still remaining rather firm.

The 810 drip-tip is of a large diameter, it is short to offer a more beautiful visual harmony.

In the end, I have a dripper that breathes solidity, which seems to cross the ages and, who knows, maybe in a hundred years or more, it will end up in the windows of some antique dealers.

Reviewer's comments on functional features

Drippers are generally rather simple approach and Carnage is no exception. The tray is easy to tame and the installation of the coils is very simple, even with complex cables. The only small criticism that I will allow myself is that the holding plate of the positive pole is not mounted on spring.

The airflow is adjustable by rotating the top-cap in the barrel. You can change the opening of the two diametrically opposite slots.

But you will also see a simple coil position consisting of two circular holes and a longer central hole. This airflow system offers a lot of adjustment possibilities and suggests that our Carnage will be able to express itself without having to fly into the watts.


The copper pin far exceeds to offer a secure connection in use on hybrid connector, logical choice given the type of connections used by our American friends for their mods.

The Purge is not a technological revelation, it is well designed but it offers no concrete novelty. Only his positive pole really stands out. But by cons, we are on a product that seems very well designed.

Drip-Tip Features

  • Type of attachment of the drip-tip: Owner but passage to the 510 through an adapter not provided
  • Presence of a Drip-Tip? Yes, the vaper can immediately use the product
  • Length and type of drip-tip present: Short
  • Quality of the present drip-tip: Good

Reviewer's comments on the Drip-Tip

A drip tip 810 rather short in ultem, that's what we have. When we look at it, we realize that the material is thick and that it is widened in a flared way. Without being exceptional, the mouthpiece does the job well, it protects rather well from the heat, it is perfectly suited to making big clouds.

Evaluation of the packaging

  • Presence of a box accompanying the product: Yes
  • Would you say that the packaging is up to the price of the product? No
  • Presence of a user manual? No
  • Is the manual understandable for a non-English speaker? No
  • Does the manual explain ALL features? No

Vapelier's note on packaging: 1 / 5 1 5 out of stars

Reviewer's comments on conditioning

Ouch, that's the point of this little gem.

I will not even comment on this despicable plastic box that vaguely remembers a box of filmstrip. This box is unworthy of a product of this rank. Inside, the dripper is rolled in bubble, same for the silver BF pin (only positive point of the pack). No instructions, at the same time, we are more ready ... So, it may be a stroke of genius because this packaging is really Carnage.

It's totally unworthy of the product and not very respectful of the customer who, for 90 € the dripper, has the right to have a more precious box and a minimum of information on the product, a precise description of the design, materials used ... all the hype of a product that is fun to read and that gives a rational meaning to this compulsive purchase crazy.

Note from Vapelier on the ease of use: 4.4 / 5 4.4 5 out of stars

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product

Let's go on the first moments a little rough. Indeed, the joints are a bit hard as long as they are not lubricated. Once disassembled, we find ourselves facing a simple plateau of reading, no need to search, the pattern is clear. The coils are easily put in place, a pity that the plate pin positive is not spring, it would have simplified the maneuver.


The filling is easy, even by the drip-tip.

The airflow adjustment is more traditional, it is fully in line with the predispositions of our platform adapted to exotic coils.

In terms of flavors, our Carnage is doing well, it does not have a surgical precision but the flavors are very well restored thanks to the internal form of his top-cap among others. I'm sure fans will be happy to have a BF pin so for example to marry this nice dripper with a nice box bottom feeder type #BDB for example.

The mood ticket of the reviewer

I am not a dripper-addict and I have always had a hard time admitting the prices flirting with the 100 € for atomizers all basic design.

The box in which the carnage is presented directly put me at ease: "what's this thing? Would not we make fun of me? 90 € the joke! "The good man who has just spent this sum has the right, at this moment, to regret his purchase.

But we are quickly calmed by its content, once cleared of this bubble pack of m ...

An atomizer gross, massive, beautifully crafted, designed to cross the years without getting a wrinkle.

I still have not become a manic dripper, but I recognize that if I had to fall and my wife or friends had to give me one for my birthday or Christmas, I would like it to be a product of this level quality.

This is a Top Ato for this timeless High End dripper that will cross, I'm sure, a few generations.
