Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality

With a nice look this atomizer allows mounting in single and double coil but the airflow is only for double.
The joints have a perfect fit, post fasteners do its job but the tightening remains imprecise.
The screws are made of brass a material that I appreciate moderately in a zone in contact with the liquid

Functional features

  • Adjustable positive plot? No, a flush mount can only be guaranteed through an adjustment of the positive pad of the battery or the mod on which it will be installed
  • Presence of a regulation of the flow of air? Yes, but only fixed
  • Diameter in mms maximum of the air regulation possible: 5
  • Minimum diameter in mms of the air regulation possible: 1
  • Positioning of the air regulation: The positioning does not benefit the resistors effectively
  • Spray chamber type: Conventional / Wide
  • Heat dissipation of the product: Low

Reviewer's comments on functional features

The airflow is located laterally via 5 1 hole mm on each side of the atomizer, a rotating ring allows to open from 1 to 5.
Note that the 5 holes are spread over a fairly large distance and therefore do not all benefit from the resistance.

Drip-Tip Features

  • 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: Long
  • Quality of the present drip-tip: Medium (not very pleasant in the mouth)

Reviewer's comments on the Drip-Tip

The drip tip provides is imposing very imposing and for me is not very fitting with the atomizer, mail it has the merit to be present what is not the case on atomiser much more expensive.

Vapelier's note on packaging: 2 / 5 2 5 out of stars

Reviewer's comments on conditioning

The atomizer is delivered in a cardboard box with foam housing, nothing to say on that side.
Note that it comes with two micro coil pre mount, I advise you to use your own editing and not those delivered (we do not know where to hang out)

Appreciations in use
