Reviewer comments on business characteristics
After a long period of commercialization, the MTL has finally regained its rightful place. This will compensate for the three years or fans of the genre have had to tighten their belts in front of the total absence of atomizers compatible with their vape.
We can thank for this the Berserker, Arès and Siren, among other precursors best sellers, who have been able to bring all manufacturers to endow their range of atomizers tight flow, own finally satisfy the followers of the genre. Today, the offer is well shared between the MTL and the DL, which allows everyone to find the vape that best suits him.
The advantages of MTL, we know them well: well-designed flavors, resemblance to the draw of a cigarette making it compatible with primavapoteurs and a much more measured consumption of liquid, which is not a bad thing when all e-liquids, especially in 10ml, are still sold well overpriced IMHO.
The candidate of the day is called "Precisio", a whole program, and comes from BD Vape which is none other than the high-end division of Fumytech, now famous manufacturer of atomizers among others. It is therefore a rebuildable atomizer, mono-coil and promises prints ranging from very tight style "I vape a pencil" until the restrictive DL. A claimed versatility which we will verify reality with meticulous care.
It is available at our sponsor for 45 € in its splendid livery Black Carbon but also for 43 € in a simpler stainless version. An interesting price if the result is good but that still places in the high-end atos of the middle empire. That said, we are far from the rates charged by the high end ricain or European and it is good for the consovapeur.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
Aesthetically, we can not say that the Precisio is a game-changer. Small and rather fine, it presents well but does not suggest any attempt of revolution or evolution in the design of an RTA. The qualities are therefore elsewhere.
In the finish for example that can not trigger the slightest criticism. The ato is all-steel, with the exception of the Ultem tank, a material known for its excellent heat resistance, stiffness, exceptional reliability over time and the ability to withstand all chemicals.
The metal parts all benefit from a DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) surface treatment, derived from Formula 1, which is presented by the vacuum laying of a very thin layer of carbon (<5 μm) and which allows a a clear improvement of the rigidity of the metal, of its duration in time and which accentuates the dry lubrication, guarantee of a good duration of the threads for example.
For once, here is a nice innovation that gives the object a serious added value in terms of quality. Be careful though, this only concerns the Black Carbon finish and not the normal finish of the ato.
At the anatomical level, we therefore have five pieces in all and for everything: a drip-tip on which we will come back, a top-cap which allows an easy filling of the apparatus and which contains the evaporation chamber, a practical reservoir and solid and a bottom-cap including the construction plate as well as an airflow ring.
The airflow is quite characteristic and allows to check the promise of the manufacturer. We have indeed a rotating ring of good quality and finely structured to have a little grip that can discover, according to your choice, a single wide opening of about 10mm to access the restricted DL or a set of five holes including the number, adjustable from 1 to 5, allows the joys of a pure MTL ranging from excessively tight to tight.
The tray is small, we are on 22mm overall diameter for the ato, and has two poles for fixing the resistive. The positive pole is isolated and the aeration comes below the resistance. Regulars will recognize the Taifun influence in the design of the board. Two mini-tanks allow to dive the ends of the cotton. They are in direct contact with the interior of the tank by three lights each allowing the liquid to penetrate towards the cotton. Simple and efficient ?
Yes BUT there is a but: I regret that the manufacturer has chosen thumbscrews flat, still delicate to handle for big fingers. I also regret the two metal lifts that surround the screws and which are a pensum to use because you really need to loosen the screws to the limit to hope to slide a resistive greater than 0.30mm. I think it was better to opt for Philips impression screws with a head a little larger to be able to do without metal lifts while ensuring a good grip of the wire.
Below the bottom-cap is the 510, impeccable, gold-plated steel connection.
In short, a well-born atomizer that borders formal perfection and offers a high-end finish.

Reviewer's comments on functional features
The features are not legion.
We have of course the airflow of which we have already spoken. Easy filling by unscrewing the Top-cap which reveals large lights that can accommodate any dropper, even the thickest.
The smallness of the plate will allow mounting in 2.5mm diameter. I think 3mm can be tempted but we risk on both sides to touch the positive or negative poles, especially if the resistive is thick. In my opinion, it will be better to use a simple wire, with few spaced turns so as to optimize the space and maintain a moderate temperature and low latency. The goal will be to get a resistance between 0.5 and 1Ω depending on whether you choose to use your Precisio in restricted DL or pure MTL.
The airflow ring is handled very well. It remains flexible to use but its very low position can keep it in its place and avoid unwanted changes.
No adjustment of the liquid inputs here. Personally, it suits me enough, having never understood the real utility of this feature. For me, an atomizer must be able to accept any type of liquid without the need to adjust an umpteenth ring with cotton hair ready. But it's a personal opinion.
- 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 with heat evacuation function
- Quality of the drip-tip present: Very good
Reviewer's comments on the Drip-Tip
A nice drip tip 510, particularly well suited to the situation. It is metal and has the same DLC treatment as all the rest of the ato (this treatment is food).
It has cooling fins that do their job even if the atomizer seems to perfectly manage the internal temperature and does not heat absolutely.
A small cap in Ultem crowns our drip-tip for better oral comfort. In short, an excellent choice that comes in complete collusion with the RTA.

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
We have here a cylindrical packaging in black cardboard of the most beautiful effect. It contains Japanese cotton, two handmade resistances and spare parts: hardware, additional 510 connector and various replacement gaskets.
It also offers a T-shaped screwdriver, traditional among Chinese manufacturers.
No record, it is always a shame because here, the Precisio could quite agree to a beginner in rebuildable who will, alas, forced to seek his info elsewhere. On the other hand, there is a pretty funny flyer that specifies what type of coil or mod you should use for a better result. Selected pieces :
- Small box 75W ==> Perfect
- Small mod mecha ==> Ok but with a chipset ...
- Big mod mecha ==> Ok but a bit too much, right?
- Big box 200W ==> Ok but F..K OFF!
- Squonk box ==> After all, do what you want ....

Note from Vapelier on the ease of use: 4 / 5
Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
Well, we come to the chapter or, after a long test of a few days, I give you my feeling on the vape because, after all, it is the expected result.
I made different montages while always respecting the topography of the plateau: fine clapton, nichrome in 0.50, SS316 in 0.32 and kanthal in 0.40. I used microphones coils or spaced coils respecting the short length usable not to create a right angle with the ends of cotton to avoid brakes to the circulation of the liquid. I got various values between 0.5 and 0.9Ω.
In the balance, the ato accepts everything without complaining and develops a perfect match between the volume of steam and a remarkable restoration of flavors. In micro coil, the heating surface, more compact, releases a heat a little invasive which forces to lower the power or to open more the draw. Complex yarns create a more textured vapor, but their warm-up latency harms punch and overall feel. I got the best compromise with kanthal 0.40 in 5 spaced spiers for a correct 0.6Ω. At this level, one can use all the expressive palette of Precisio, from DL to MTL. Just adjust the power if you open or close the airflow and the temperature remains adequate.
The Precisio offers us a surprising peculiarity that it would be criminal not to rise: whether in DL or MTL, the quality of restitution of flavors is always the same. We have e-liquids that stand out well detailed but also very homogeneous. The vape is very qualitative, unctuous and opens the doors of a vape high end for a price completely justified and being, for once, a very nice case.
The atomizer accepts all liquid viscosities, including 100% VG, which is a significant benefit for ato MTL. However, it is at its best with e-liquids included in 70 / 30 and 30 / 70. This is where his dynamism and the quality of his taste are best expressed.
As a bonus, I will tell you that ato has not leaked at any time. The filling can be carried out large-open airflow, it's nickel. He agrees to sleep, shake it without delivering a drop of juice through the airflow. The condition sine qua non to achieve this result is a correct dosage of cotton: it must that it fills the tanks well, closing off the entry lights of juice without being too tight.
At 25W in DL, the Precisio consumes a little but without significant excess. At 17W in pure MTL, 3.7ml can last long enough.
It remains for me to reveal to you the most amazing thing: whatever the choice of the draw, the volume of steam is always impressive. Even at 13W with resistance to 1Ω, the cloud is thick and plentiful, for MTL of course. This was the main surprise of the test.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
Value for money extremely favorable. Report flavors / steam amazing, the Precisio is the UFO of the return. An atomizer that will undoubtedly jostle the established hierarchy of the best MTL.
Far from being ridiculous in limited DL, the little ato is a devil dressed in a luxurious set that allows him without blushing to be compared to the snobs of high-end market, all for a fare calculated to the fair.
To all lovers of MTL, whether they are beginners in the reconstructible or old veterans of the vape eager to find a less conspicuous vape, I can only advise you to get it urgently and especially in this version Black Carbon that does not will not fizzle on the stalls of the shops. Our sponsor will even have the decency to not charge you the shipping costs if you choose it !!!
Top Ato O-BLI-GA-TOIRE for this newcomer who may soon be your new companion.
