Reviewer comments on business characteristics
The Compak OB One is a vaper-ready kit for beginners.
Very compact, this set-up knows how to be discreet thanks to its small size just above the ten centimeters, including drip-tip. Its shape is similar to that of a remote control with a thickness of 13mm and an extremely light weight. Its capacity provides 1100mah for proprietary resistors of 1,6Ω, which corresponds to an autonomy of at least 8h00 according to the more or less regular use and a power of vape which is between 15 and 18W approximately.
Featuring a non-adjustable airflow and an additional tank in which is inserted a replacement resistor, this kit can also be recharged via a micro-USB cable. It is an entry-level product, unless 20 € where everything is included, except the liquid.
It comes in several colors: black, silver, red, green or blue. But let's see how this kit works.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
For this test, the model is light gray (silver), the main material which constitutes it is an aluminum alloy of satin aspect perfectly adapted to this product.
Classic and sober, the kit looks like a remote control with a format as small. The switch, perfectly functional is stable, it is placed at the top of the body and the center of the front. Of black rectangle shape, it is associated with a blue luminous halo when pressed on it. Near the switch, we have a triple arrow-shaped loophole that allows to visualize the level of liquid, it is not very effective because the tank is too dark to distinguish anything!
On one of the cutting edges, there is an opening for the charging cable that keeps the mod in a vertical position during this operation, on the other a thin opening is used for the circulation of air.
The atomizer associated with this kit is a proprietary clearomizer that has a very special form adapted to mod. It is in one part and includes the tank and the drip-tip. It fits easily by a magnet system that works perfectly.
I insisted a little to separate what does not separate (?) And find the resistance. A simple resistance with a kanthal of 0.2mm for a value of 1.6Ω. A very classic montage that works very well.

Reviewer's comments on functional features
The features of this set-up are not legion but allow beginners to get started without complicating the task.
The reloading of the Compak OB One is done via the micro-USB port via the supplied cable, this operation lasts about 2h00 for this battery of 1100mah.
The switch, associated with a blue luminous halo, lights up as soon as it is activated but remains very discreet.
The battery does not have a locking system but, in five clicks on the switch, it goes out.
The proprietary clearomizer is equipped with a 1.6Ω resistor with a 2ml reservoir. At least on the paper because, after measuring the capacity, I get only 1.6ml.
The intended vaping is typified indirect inhalation with a restricted and non-adjustable airflow opening.

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
In a large cardboard box, the kit is well set in a post-formed transparent plastic.
Below, we find the micro-USB cable with the complete clearomiser with its resistance and tank and an explanatory note in English and Chinese, but perfectly illustrated by many schematic drawings.
Correct packaging, adapted to the price of the product.

Vapelier's note in terms of ease of use:
5 / 5
Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
The use is really fun since it is enough to separate the two parts that are just magnetized. Under the clearomizer, a rubber stopper opens (or closes) the tank for easy filling. The resistance imbues quickly enough and, after a minute of waiting, we can vap by having previously pressed five times on the switch to turn on the kit.
There is no power setting to make since it is depending on the value of your resistance that the battery provides the necessary voltage. Be aware that steam and hit are moderated with a resistance value of 1.6Ω. On the other hand, your battery has a good autonomy with this value and the consumption of the liquid is really very economical.
I had no leak, no taste of burning, the flavors are appreciable with a realism average. It is an ideal kit to stop smoking without complications!

The mood ticket of the reviewer
This is a complete kit that does not require anything exceptional, except to provide e-liquid.
It is also a very good price / quality ratio with a possibility of customizing its kit by the proposed kit colors but it remains a basic product, intended for beginners who wish to definitely stop the cigarette. This is an excellent approach that facilitates the transition to more powerful or powerful kits later.
Side vape, he has for him great assets with its practical and flat shape that can be put in every pocket. In addition, this kit is extremely light. The vapor is much the same as that of the smoke of a cigarette. And the big advantage is the autonomy, both for the battery and the chosen liquid.
A good beginner's compromise that does not cost much to embark on the vape.
