Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
We have a very well finished kit with excellent autonomy.
Only the painting leaves something to be desired after a few days of use.
Here, no need to make several adjustments, the use is intuitive.
A discreet little kit that slips easily into a pocket
The 3200mah battery allows a beginner to recharge once a day or every other day.
The latter can also be used with any clearomizer on the market but it will be difficult to hold the day if you vape above 35w.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
When receiving the GaxiI did not know what to expect.
I must say that I am very pleasantly surprised.
For the test, I used it for two days in a row at 14w and the battery of the Gaxi gave up the night of the second day on the blows of 20h, knowing
that I used it as a main kit from 7h to 22h.
What a pity that the painting is erased which takes away a lot of its charm.
The Clearomizer Tinis does its job well and with the 1,5Ω resistance, it has a good tight draw even if the airflow adjustment can be times a
For a beginner, this kit will be an excellent choice for its simplicity of use, its size and its autonomy.
