Reviewer comments on business characteristics
For my birthday, I had the pleasant surprise of being offered a Kayfun. I know, I'm lucky and even if it's not a novelty, since this version is missing from our "notebooks", I decided to do the review.
The version in question is the most imposing of the range, proposed by the Russian moddeur Svoëmesto : The Kayfun V5².
25 mm diameter, a large capacity and a vape DL oriented which is a first for the series of Kayfun.
The price is a bit indecent and I should not say it because it's a gift but the high end is paying the price and it will release more than 100 euros to take possession of this "big toy".

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
The guidelines of this Kayfun V5² are the same as those of the V5. It is necessarily more imposing with its diameter 25 mm but even if it is "big", it retains a harmonious design.
At the top, a bi-material drip-tip stainless steel / POM (polyoxymethylene), it is held in place on the top cap with two O-rings.
This top cap is unscrewed to access the filling of the tank.
Two different tanks, a quartz with which the atomizer seems less "heavy" and a steel that reinforces the massive aspect of this album.
In the tank, we see the bell that traditionally team this series from the V3. It is engraved with the initials of the mark and has the six holes at its base which serve to bring the juice to the plate.
The base receives an airflow ring pierced by two slots.
Under the bell, a fairly large plateau where you can see a good arrival of air. The pads are equipped with small "hooks" to facilitate the installation of the resistive wire.
At the bottom of the two small vats, there are holes on both sides that allow the juice to reach the cotton.
Made in SS 306 L, as always with this brand, everything is perfectly machined, the screw threads are of great finesse and the joints are of very good quality.
A beautiful, high quality atomizer, in total agreement with the level of products usually offered by the Russian moddeur.

Reviewer's comments on functional features
This Kayfun V5² has everything you need, where you need it.
A classic top fill system, you just have to unscrew the top cap and you have a comfortable access to fill the tank.
The capacity of the quartz tank is 5.5 ml, it goes to 8 ml with the stainless steel tank.
A single coil tray capable of receiving coils in exotic yarn with a diameter of up to 3.5 mm.
The atomizer has, of course, the system of control of arrival of liquid present on the last Kayfun. This equipment is both simple and effective.
Finally, this little jewel also includes an adjustable airflow ring that offers three settings, 6, 7 and finally 8 mm opening.
A high-end DL atomizer perfectly equipped with exclusive systems to Svoëmesto who have all proven themselves.
- Drip tip type: 510 Only
- Presence of a Drip-Tip? Yes, the vaper can immediately use the product
- Length and type of drip-tip present: Medium

Reviewer's comments on the Drip-Tip
The drip-tip is in two parts. One in white POM and one in stainless steel. They are assembled to one another by means of a thread. The metal part is engraved with the mark of the mark.
The port is 510 type which means that you can put your favorite drip-tip even if I think the one provided is just impeccable and well adapted to the vape that delivers our atomizer.
In short, a nice accessory in perfect adequacy with the standing of our kayfun.

Vapelier's note on packaging: 3.5 / 5
Reviewer's comments on conditioning
The first atomizers of the brand were delivered in cardboard boxes of simplicity and mediocrity that contrasted with the standing of the product.
Since then, things have evolved and even if we are still a bit inward compared to the product class, we are getting closer to an acceptable level.
A flexible cardboard over-pack sports the name of the brand and the atomizer. This first envelope a small box of thick cardboard and textured black which is covered with the logo in relief of the mark.
Inside are the atomizer, the optional stainless steel tank, a bag of seals and screws and a record translated into several languages. Finally when I say manual, it's not really accurate, it should rather say a document that invites you to come to the site of svoëmesto to have access to the notice and summarizes all the mandatory normative warnings.
In short a correct packaging even if we could have expected better given the price.

Note from Vapelier on the ease of use: 4 / 5
Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
Ce Kayfun V5² does not shine by its compactness, it will be perfect in combination on a mono box type 26650 or with any box capable of accommodating 25mm atomizers.
The filling is ultra-simple thanks to a basic but effective system, not to mention that there is plenty of room, so no problem even with large bottles.
The assembly of the coil is also simple, there is room and small hooks on the tray facilitate the implementation of the latter. The cotton does not oppose any difficulty, in addition thanks to the system of control of the arrival of juice, you will be able to quite easily remedy a rough cotonnage.
This juice delivery system is super simple to use, just turn the tank, when we screw, we reduce or even close the arrival and when unscrewing it opens, nothing more simple.
Let's talk about the arrival of air. At the base of the atomizer is the airflow adjustment ring. It is pushed up and there, it can rotate it and choose one of three positions. To locate you, small dots are engraved on the plate which includes the pin 510: 1 point: 6 mm, 2 points: 7mm and 3 points: 8mm.
It's precise, simple and effective.
In short, as always Svoëmesto we offer an effective atomizer, easy to use and offers a very good quality of vape.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
I am a fan of the products of SvoëmestoI have always appreciated these high-end atomizers that combine performance, efficiency and simplicity. Except for the V4 version which was a bit too complex and, in my opinion, betrayed the very spirit of the lineage.
This version V5² is the first that is labeled DL. For this, it adopts certain codes of this type of atomizer. First, the Kayfun 25 mm diameter, the tank is the first to enjoy as it reaches the 8 ml tank steel configuration.
Then it's the plateau that offers a lot of room and on which we distinguish a single air intake, a fairly generous size. The tray is planned to accommodate all my types of son even complexes.
For air intakes, three choices 6, 7 or 8 mm. So we agree, we are far from ultra-loose air arrivals of RDTA atomizers that turn in double coils to 80W or more. Here it is a reasonable DL that can be used without worry, from 18 / 20W.
For me it is a DL atomizer made for the "cruising", we hold on 20 / 25W and let it flow. The amount of steam is satisfactory without being frightening for the entourage. The flavors are at the top, the bell and the fireplace not too wide focuses well the flavors.
In short, Kayfun V5² respects perfectly the spirit of the lineage while tilting with a certain elegance towards the direct inhalation.
So yes, perfection at a price, 119 € but frankly I have a lot of very correct atomizers, more modest origin that offered me services quite acceptable. But now, there is always a little something wrong with them, steps of screw a little way, a delicate cotton and so on.
With a Kayfun, there is nothing of all that, it always turns naked and offers a constant pleasure once its settings found and that, associated with the perfection of the realization, should finish to convince you that it is not not a disproportionate expense.
