Reviewer comments on business characteristics
Let's continue the exploration and evaluation of Titanide's Themis mechanical mods.
Today, it will be the Themis Gold 14, still manufactured by the Manufacture Etienne of our compatriots Cigaverte. Manufacture Etienne? It brings back memories to the oldest of us ...
The Titanide mods are therefore entirely manufactured and made in France and are guaranteed for life.
Flared, the body is in titanium cut in the mass, suggesting the shape of the logo (laser cut) in the thinnest part of the tube, which also serves as a safety vent for the battery.
Each Titanide Themis is unique thanks to the inlay of abalone in the switch making these mods an elegance going with their membership in the category of luxury equipment.
Titanium Themis 14 Gold is designed to work with an 14500 IMR (Lithium Manganese) battery. This type of battery standard size corresponding to the specifics of mod. Its use with the latter will guarantee a perfect operation without any adjustment.

Vapelier's note regarding functional characteristics: 4.8 / 5
Reviewer's comments on functional features
The conductivity is excellent, provided by gold-plated brass contacts 24 carats.
With an 14500 IMR (Lithium Manganese) battery, there is no intervention to be expected, but be aware that if you want to use an 14500 Li-Ion (Lithium Cobalt Oxide) battery, simply unscrew the internal titanium screw and remove the 4 setting washers and one of the two battery stop rings.
From a safety point of view, there is no concern about the fire button since it is equipped with a threaded ring ensuring its locking or unlocking.

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
Carton full! Without wishing to minimize the note, let's remember that it is a mod mecha, so I consider the notice especially as an attention of the manufacturer who took the trouble not to "throw" his material "High End "In a common cardboard box ... or bubble wrap ... as we have already met unfortunately ...
Here is no point of commoner industrial packaging but a beautiful hard case to preserve your purchase.

Vapelier's note in terms of usability: 4.5 / 5
Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
If my mini dripper Hobbit begins to feel more comfortable on this Themis 14, we must recognize that we are limited here again by the power delivered by the battery 14500.
With my RDA, I can now start testing flavors but autonomy will be too fair.
We must see this model as a slightly larger evolution of Themis 10 and, once again, I explore the hypothesis of a material more suitable for a female clientele in search of discretion and exclusivity.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
After the Themis 10, the logic wanted us to continue with this Themis 14. The quality is of course the same but the characteristics are slightly on the rise.
The battery 14500 remains limited in its power and its autonomy but there is well the evolution envisaged and a level of vape increased.
Admittedly, we are not yet in the world of steam machines clean to take off the wallpaper but this "14" is already usable with small atos who begin to develop beautiful flavors.
The women that I feel, rightly or wrongly, as more targeted by this beautiful object will nevertheless have to obtain atomizers especially reserved and adapted to Themis. I have no doubt that the brand's distributors will be able to offer them the most appropriate equipment.
Note finally that, if you find the appearance of the golden fittings too "bling bling", the Themis 14 is also available in version and finish completely titanium. Another precision also, to be completely complete, Titanide has a very wide choice of drip-tips to customize your set-up.
See you soon to continue our evaluations in the world of mods Titanide.
