Joyetech Espion Solo Review

Can you believe Joyetech has been around for a decade? It seems like only yesterday I was using their old eGo electronic cigarette thinking there couldn’t possibly be anything better. Well, time has shown just how wrong I was, but to show us just how far they have come in the last 10 years, the Chinese company recently launched a limited edition mod featuring a brand new circuit board, touchscreen and one of the coolest designs I’ve ever seen on a Joyetech product. Let’s check out the Joyetech Espion Solo:

A Look at the Contents:

The Espion Solo kit comes in the standard Joyetech packaging we’ve gotten used to over the years – a white cardboard box with an image of the assembled product on the front, and a list of contents, required warnings, company information and an authenticity code, on the back.

Inside the box, we have the Joyetech Espion Solo single-battery mod placed in a Styrofoam holder, and underneath that we have the included ProCore Air 25-mm sub-ohm tank, two coil-heads, a spare glass tube for the tank, a micro-USB cable for charging and firmware updates, a battery adaptor that allows you to use several types of batteries, a bag of spare o-rings and gaskets for the ProCore tank, a spare drip tip, separate user manuals for the mod and the tank, as well as a handy card explaining the different coil-heads compatible with the included tank. Depending on what country you live in, the kit may also include a 21700 battery. Unfortunately, Romania doesn’t allow battery shipping, for safety reasons, so I didn’t get one.

All in all, this is one of the most generous kits I’ve seen in a while. I’m especially happy to see a spare glass tube included. As someone who has cracked a few tanks through the years, I’ve grown to appreciate spares.

Design and Build Quality

If the Espion name sounds familiar, it may be because Joyetech released the original Espion kit just a few months ago. That was a dual-18650 battery mod with a distinctively art-deco look to it. I for one liked it, even though it wasn’t the most exciting design I had ever seen.

The Espion Solo is very different from the original Espion. Apart from the name and the similar flat fire button, I haven’t really spotted any other common features between the two. Personally, I prefer the Solo, for a variety of reasons. The general design is much more exciting this time around, the display may not be colored like on the original Espion, but it is tactile and the layout is much better, and the compatibility with 21700, 20700 and 18650 batteries is a huge plus.

The Solo is made of zinc alloy and currently comes in four different colors – Gun Metal, Black, Rainbow and Pink. For this review, I received the Gun Metal version, which I consider the best-looking one. If you’re a fan of brushed metal mods, I suggest you go with this one.

The mod measures 81mm x 39.5mm x 25.5mm, and weighs just under 180 grams with a 21700 battery inserted. That’s pretty standard for a single-battery mod, and thanks to the rounded back side of the Solo, it feels very comfortable in the hand.

The Joyetech Espion Solo connection features a spring-loaded, gold-plated 510 pin with a lot of travel to it. Because of the 25.5mm width of the device, you won’t be able to use atomizers with a diameter higher than 25,5mm without some overhang. That’s not a big deal, though, as single-battery mods like this are not really designed to be used with giant tanks.

The rounded side of the mod also doubles as a battery door. It’s held in place by four pairs of magnets, and while it’s fairly easy to grab and yank off the mod, you don’t have to worry about wobbling or the door coming off the mod accidentally. In the four weeks I’ve been using it, I’ve never had any problems with the battery door.

The battery compartment features clear polarity indicators, and the spring-loaded positive contact is slanted, making it easy to insert the battery without damaging the wrapping. One of the best things about the Joyetech Espion Solo is that you can use it with three different types of batteries – 21700, 20700 and 18650 – although Joyetech only mentions two (21700 and 18650).

On the front of the mod, we have a large, rectangular fire button with “10th Anniversary Limited Edition” laser-etched on it, a 1.3 inch OLED touchscreen, a very handy selection button, and a micro-USB port for charging and upgrading, near the bottom.

I was a big fan of the fire button on the original Joyetech Espion, but this one is even better. You can easily find and press it with both your thumb and the index finger – depending on how you’re holding the mod – and it can be pressed anywhere, even on the slightly curved sides. It also makes a satisfying click when you press it.

In my opinion, the main draw of the Joyetech Espion Solo is the touchscreen. It’s a black and white display, compared to the colored one of the dual-battery Espion, but it’s large, bright and has a much better layout, in my opinion. Also, it’s a tactile screen and people love that sort of gimmick on a mod.

Overall, the Espion Solo is a very solid device. I love the metallic look and feel of it, and the fact that it is compatible with different capacity batteries, and that screen is to die for.

Menu System and Navigation

The Joyetech Espion Solo features a brand new board, so you should expect a different menu and navigation system. I for one have never been a fan of Joyetech’s old navigation system and the lack of an actual menu (all the settings were done on the home screen), but this time around they’ve actually improved things quite a bit.

To turn on the Solo mod, all you have to do is press the fire button five times in rapid succession (make sure to first insert a battery, though). The Joyetech logo pops up for a few seconds, and then you’ll be taken to the home screen. As I said, I love the large size of the screen and how the improved layout doesn’t look cluttered like it does on most advanced mods these days.

You have the operating mode displayed at the top of the screen, then the atomizer resistance and the time, the wattage/temperature is located in the middle of the screen, then the voltage and amperage, and finally, the large battery indicator. Some of these can be changed in the menu, but this is the default home screen of the Espion Solo.

To make any sort of adjustment, whether it be changing the wattage/temperature or going into the main menu, you first have to unlock the touchscreen. You do that by pressing that selection button right under the screen. You’ll see an unlocked padlock on screen for a moment, and then some arrows pointing left and right on the display, as well as two up and down buttons.

The left and right arrows let you know that you can swipe left and right to access sections of the menu, while the up and down buttons allow you to adjust the wattage/temperature from the home screen.

That selection button actually has some other secondary functions as well. Keep it pressed for a second while the mod is turned off and it will display the time on the screen. Keep it pressed for a couple of seconds while the device is turned on, and it will start cycling between the different operating modes (wattage mode, temp. control, bypass, TCR). Finally, if you double press it, it will put the Espion Solo in stealth mode.

Swiping right on the touchscreen display will take you to an information table where you can check battery life, the time, the current wattage output, the atomizer resistance and the puff counter. Some of this information is already displayed on the home screen, and the rest you don’t really care about, so apart from the battery life displayed in percentage points, the other information is pretty much useless, in my opinion.

Swiping left will take you into the main menu of the Espion Solo. Here, you’ll find four icons – Mode, Info, Set and Exit.

In Mode, you can select between the different available operating modes – Power, Temp. Control and Bypass, as well as RTC, which isn’t really a mode but a different home screen layout. It basically allows you to switch from a digital clock to a square analog one that takes up most of the screen, with the rest of the info being squeezed in the top and bottom sections.

In Info, you can check various things, like the voltage of your battery and the versions of the hardware and firmware.

Finally, in Set, you can lock the resistance of your coil, adjust the wattage for temp.control mode, select which subparameter you want displayed on the home screen from amperage, puff counter and total usage time, set the time and date, adjust both the duration and the intensity of the preheat for temperature control, and adjust the puff cutoff time.

One thing I should point out is that Set is the only submenu where you can scroll down to access more options, but the mod doesn’t let you know that. When you access this section, you only see four of the available settings, and there’s no down arrow or anything like that to let you know that you can swipe up to reveal the others.

I personally like this menu and navigation much better than the old ones Joyetech used, but there’s definitely still room for improvement. I would have liked to see a Curve mode included as well, instead of some secondary options that most people are never going to use anyway. Also, the touchscreen takes some getting used to, and while it is definitely one of the best tactile screens I’ve sen on a vape mod, it’s not perfect. It won’t register inputs 100% of the time, but the same can be said for just about all mod touchscreens.

Battery Life and Overall Performance

For a single-battery mod, the Joyetech Espion Solo has excellent battery life thanks to its compatibility with 21700 batteries. You can also use it with a good ol’ 18650, thanks to the included silicone adapter included in the kit, but if you want the best battery life possible out of this device, definitely try to get your hands on a 21700. It’s worth every penny, trust me.

Depending on how much you vape and the power output you set on the mod, a 21700 battery will last you anywhere between 5 hours and a couple of days. For example, if you crank up the power all the way to the maximum (80W), don’t expect to be able to vape a whole day, but if you prefer mouth-to-lung vaping, at a wattage up to 25W, than you can definitely get around two days of use on a charged battery. It all depends on how you vape, basically.

If you prefer higher wattage, I would suggest taking a spare battery with you everywhere you go, just to be sure.

The Espion Solo also features 2A fast charging, so even if you run out of power, as long as you have access to a power source, you can recharge in a matter of minute.

In terms of performance, I was really impressed with the Joyetech Espion Solo. I’ve been using it for a month now, and I haven’t experienced any issues with it. There’s virtually no delay when pressing the fire button, I’ve experienced no misfires at all, and the power output feels quite accurate. I don’t have the equipment or the know-how to measure it, but comparing it to other very accurate single-battery devices, like the Asmodus Colossal, it doesn’t feel underpowered at all.

I haven’t really used the temperature control mode very much, simply because I enjoy power mode a lot more, but I did do a dry cotton test with a stainless steel coil and the Solo did a good job cutting the power instantly to protect the wick.

Bypass mode and TCR didn’t interest me at all, and I suspect that most people don’t ever use them either. Bypass mode basically allows you to use the device as a mech only with the built-in protections still active, and TCR lets you tweak the temperature coefficient of supported materials (stainless steel, nickel and titanium).

The Tank

The ProCore Air is the latest entry in Joyetech’s ProCore line of tanks, but it is actually quite similar to the original ProCore and the ProCore X that the dual-battery Espion mod came with. It has the same 25mm diameter, the same 4.5ml e-liquid capacity and is compatible with the ProC line of coil-heads.

Now, about what makes the Air version different. First, we have a cool snake skin-like resin drip tip that comes in various colors to match the color of your Espion Solo mod. Then there is the way you access the fill port. On previous ProCore tanks, the top cap would flip back completely thanks to a metal hinge, whereas the ProCore Air uses a system similar to that of the Eleaf Ello tanks, where you press on the side of the top cap and it slides just enough to reveal a large fill port.

The two ProCA coil-heads included in the kit are both rated at 0.4Ω, for a mild sub-ohm vaping experience. These are the lastest additions to the ProC coil-head family, and I for one have enjoyed using them very much. They are very similar to the ProC1 coil-heads that came with the ProCore X tank, and to be honest the whole vaping experience was pretty much the same.

If you’ve ever used a Joyetech ProCore tank before, you already know what to expect from the ProCore Air. It may be advertised as a new version, but it’s really more of the same.

If this is your first ProCore tank, know that it’s one of the good tanks out there, especially for one that comes bundled in a kit. Flavor-wise, it’s above average, but where it really shines is vapor production.


Overall, the Joyetech Espion Solo kit was a pleasant surprise. The mod is obviously the star of the package, but the ProCore Air tank is definitely a worthy inclusion, especially if this is your first advanced atomizer.

If you’re in the market for a cool-looking single-battery setup that features 21700 battery compatibility as well most of the advanced mod features available right now and a large, responsive touchscreen to boot, look no further than the Joyetech Espion Solo.

Digiflavor Liip Pod Reddy Review | Digiflavor…What Were You Thinking?

ntroduction – The Digiflavor Liip Disposable Pod System

The Digiflavor Liip continues the influx of pod style vape systems hitting the shelves lately, which is no surprise given the recent development of pod loving nic salt e-juices. There have also been a number of disposable, nic salt pods making the rounds, such as the Stig, by Vgod, which had the pleasure of reviewing.

Over recent years, we’ve come to know Digiflavor as a high-quality designer and manufacturer of everything tank related, their Drop and Mesh Pro RDAs were amongst a long list of recent successes, as was their Pilgrim GTA.

With the Liip though, Digiflavor is venturing into what is, for them, uncharted territory.

Indeed, the Digiflavor Liip Disposable Pod almost seems to be in direct response to Vgod’s Stig and, I imagine, as far as the nicotine variants go, it does indeed match up. I, however, have been treated to the rather unusual experience of the Liip Reddy flavour, a non-nic variant that employs an altogether unusual and even more potent stimulant than nicotine, namely…Arecoline.

“Disclaimer: Arecoline is a component of the Areca nut that has been found to have carcinogenic and stimulant properties that far exceed those of nicotine, I therefore only offer an unbiased review and most certainly am not recommending that anyone use the arecoline containing Liip pod.”

What’s In The Box

  • 2 x foil sealed Liip Podsdigiflavor liip pod box


  • 240 mAh built-in battery
  • 72.3 x 20 x 12.9 mm
  • 1.2ml liquid inside
  • 2.4 Ohm MTL coil
  • +/- 3 V output
  • Nic volumes: 48% for tobacco, 36 for berry and orange and zero nicotine for reddy
  • Nic variants available in 3 packs and Arecoline variant in 2 pack
  • 200-300 puffs per device
  • Tiny, lightweight and disposable
  • Draw activated
  • LED indicator lightdigiflavor liip pod pack

Build Quality & Design

I received the Reddy variant, which comes in packs of 2 (possibly due to the extreme effects). They arrive in a small red and black box, sealed inside little foil freshpacks.

Opening one pack, I discover a flashdrive shaped device, somewhat bigger than the stig, made of plastic, with ribbing all round the body, by way of grip.

At the base of the device are two small holes, one is an airflow hole and the other is an LED indicator.

The Reddy flavour is printed at the bottom of one side, in a silvery white and Liip branding is printed in the same shade on the other side.

The ribs run up the length of the plastic pod. The body and mouthpiece are continuous.

The mouth piece ends in a small, elongated, mouth to lung (MTL) friendly opening, which is stoppered with a disposable silicon plug.digiflavor liip pod base

The Reddy variety is red, Tobacco is black, Orange is orange and Berry is purple.

That is all there is to it. Since the device is draw activated, there are no buttons anywhere.

The size is convenient, the shape even more so. I like the fact that this device can stand up on its base and the overall finish is high quality for a disposable.

Focus On For More Vape Kits.   

How Does The Digiflavor Liip Disposable Pod Perform?

Having sampled the Stig Pod by Vgod, I must say, I was highly impressed with the flavour and cloud production I experienced here.

I found the lifespan of both pods in the pack to be consistent, sitting at around 250 draws, which is, in my opinion, phenomenal.

The draw activation is smooth and easy.

The pods deliver a medium clouded MTL hit which, if compared to the Stig’s cloud production and delivery performance, is slightly higher.

What took me completely by surprise her, especially since I have the non-nicotine variety, was the intense stimulating effect of the arecoline stimulant which is used in lieu of nicotine in the non-nic version. I feel that users should be more appropriately warned about this ahead of time as it is a far more noticeable HIGH than nicotine.

Now, arecoline is derived from the nutty fruit of the areca palm and is an oily, odourless liquid with an intensely herbal flavour which reminds me of nothing more than the dried hay stalks I used to chew on in our family’s barn as a child.

Unfortunately, it raises a lot of questions as to it’s safety and while we cannot be sure what problems it can cause when vaped, I can’t in good conscience recommend it to anyone.digiflavor liip pod hand

If you’ve ever accidentally or purposefully inhaled a lungfull of butane gas, you’ll have some idea of what a draw on an arecoline vape feels like.

I literally have to sit there for ten seconds listening to the throbbing in my head slowly die down. My face goes red, my lungs seize up, it is intense.

I don’t smoke or vape marijuana or CBD and I don’t feel any conscious effects when I use nic salts so the instant and undeniable stimulant effect I got from vaping this was a real shock to my system.

I took it in my stride and managed a few rounds of chainvaping this thing and let me tell you, I couldn’t even focus my eyes while doing so. I’m honestly not sure what Digiflavor was thinking.

Certainly, given the nature of this particular compound and the fact that addictive types would probably easily get hooked, I find the addition of arecoline to be highly irresponsible and certainly not what we’d expect from one of our trusty vape brands.digiflavor liip pod side

Battery Life

The battery on one device will last between 200 and 300 puffs, mine was right there arounf 250, so better than the Stig on that front.


  • Small, ergonomic and stealthy
  • Excellent battery life
  • Full flavour with maximum stimulant delivery
  • Draw activation for a simple and easy fix


  • No proper warning given on the stimulant effects of arecoline in the Reddy flavour
  • Arecoline is a known carcinogen
  • I experienced chest tightening, heart palpitations and intense hot flushes
  • Noticeable stimulant effects will be very upsetting for some users

Final Review Verdict

Now, based on the performance, active component delivery, battery life and overall convenience of this pod, I think I would have given it an outstanding review, had I received the nicotine version for review. Unfortunately, I received a version that contains a component of the Areca nut which has been found to have carcinogen properties, something which I, as a vaper, SERIOUSLY prefer to avoid.

I cannot in good conscience recommend the Reddy Flavour Liip Pod by Digiflavour to anybody and I can only imagine the sort of stir this product might cause when someone less lenient than me experiences the unexpected side effects of vaping it.


Would I buy this if I lost/broke the device? A nicotine variety, yes, this one No

Review Augvape BTFC RDA. First look


In this article, we will introduce a new dripka from Augvape and the famous YouTube Vapnfagan called BTFC RDA.

Today, collaborations of various vape bloggers with device manufacturers are becoming quite commonplace.

More and more well-known reviewers are involved in the development and design of devices for vaping, earning thereby both extra points of fame and, of course, money.

Recently, the company Augvape , which gave us a lot of interesting gizmos, teamed up with the popular YouTube in the West under the nickname Vapnfagan and introduced the BTFC RDA drift , which we will now take a look at.

Focus On For More Vape Kits.   


The abbreviation “BTFC” stands for Bottom Airflow, Top Airflow, Flavor, Clouds. Based on this, it is already possible to understand that the drip possesses the lower and upper airflow, and is also positioned as a tasty and bulk device.

BTFC RDA was released in four different colors, and its diameter is 25 mm, non-standard for rims.

Airflow Augvape BTFC RDA

As mentioned above, the new product from Augvape received two types of blowing at the same time: upper and lower. The first is controlled by a simple rotation of the top cap, and the second can be customized by the same rotation, but by the side skirt.

Interestingly implemented in Dripke and base. To install the spirals there are actually two racks that are offset to the edges of the deck.

In each rack there are two holes for the legs of the coils, as well as the combined holes of the bottom blower in the same way in the amount of two pieces per each rack.

The center of the bath is free and provides an opportunity for refueling the device through the drip-type, without removing the dome.

In terms of its overall structure, the BTFC RDA is a fairly simple and uncomplicated device that does not have any innovative ideas, but is made with skill.

Dripka is quite suitable for lovers of huge clouds of steam, as it can saturate the evaporation chamber with a substantial amount of air.

Included with the BTFC RDA will be to find an additional 810 drip-type of translucent plastic, as well as skvonk-pin, which is without him in the modern realities of the vaping industry.

Sigelei Fuchai Squonk 213 Reviewed: More Than Just A Sqonker!!!

Introduction – The Fuchai Squonk 213 By Sigelei

The Sigelei Fuchai Squonk 213 mod is from a vape brand who’ve been extremely active this past year, with the likes of the Kaos Spectrum Mod, which no one could get enough of on social media, as well as their exciting and uniquely styled Fuchai MT-V and GW Kits…and that’s just to name a few!

A beautifully finishhed blend of zinc and aluminium alloys creates contrast between the top surface, screen panel, base and the rest of the chassis, with the coloured versions having a coloured chasis with all the above mentioned sections in black.

I received only the mod (not the kit) for review and was impressed by the 170g weight, without cell, and the all round, solid, rattle-free construction.fuchai squonk 213 back

The base of the mod has a hinged battery door, which opens into a single battery chamber that, with the help of a rubber battery adapter that comes already installed, can accommodate a single 18650, a 20700 or a 21700, sweet!

A panel wraps around the mod on one side (see pics) and is home to two small, slanted adjustment buttons, a 0.95” colour screen, a micro USB port, below the screen and on the narrower vertical side…and a clicky, oddly shaped fire button, at the top of the same vertical side.

On the top surface, furthest from the fire button, a deep and springy bottom feeding connection, with a good amount of give, set within a SS seating with concentric ring texturing.

While the screen panel and battery door, as well as the shape of the mod are all identical to the regular Fuchai 213 design, one difference here is the bottom feeding connection and of course, the addition of a removable side panel (opposite the screen panel) and a 5ml silicon bottom feeding bottle set in the bottom half of the mod bellow the 510 connection.fuchai squonk 213 510 connection

Not only is the silicon bottle interchangeable with after-market 5ml bottom feeding bottles, like a couple I happened to have lying around…you can even do away with bottom feeding completely. Simply replacing the open (squonk) panel with a closed one (all panels are magnetized and easy to fit and remove) will allow you to use the mod just like an ordinary Fuchai 213!

fuchai squonk 213 bottom feederThere’s a prominent Fuchai brand at the bottom of the mod on the screen side btw.

I love the smooth and solid feel of this squonker, great ergonomics and, all round, a really sophisticated, high end look, I must say.

Focus On For More Vape Kits.   


While I didn’t get an extra bottle, at least the Fuchai Squonk 213 is compatible with standard 5ml after market bottles. I love the inclusion of a closed side panel so that I can use the mod like a regular box mod, with one of my sub-ohm tanks.

How Does The Sigelei Fuchai Squonk 213 Perform?

I first checked out a Samsung 2500 (18650) to test the wattage output and found that I could reach 120W, not bad!

I remove the battery adapter and pop in a 20700 (3000mAh) battery and pair with the Blitzvape Ghoul (a perfect match) on a 0.15 Ohm fused clapton build…now I’m able to achieve 150W which is outstanding on a single cell!

A 21700 will allow you to reach the full 150W but as far as the other battery types go, it all depends on your battery’s amperage! As always, be sure to brush up on your vape battery safety.

The first thing I love about this mod is the colour display. Wattage, voltage, resistance, battery levels and amperage are all beautifully laid out, with your mode prominently framed in blue.

I also like the way that as I increase my setting, the W/V reading changes colour from green to yellow to orange to red, making you aware of recommended and comfortable settings for the battery you have fitted. I also appreciate having a percentage battery reading, as well as a pictorial one…the display is extremely comprehensive and bright AF!fuchai squonk 213 screen

I find the power curves and TC are a breeze to set and the results feel true and accurate. I tested for both nickel and SS316 and had no issues whatsoever.

I also found the new atomizer reading (it just adjusts the reading without asking any questions) to be instant and without fail.

I found the UI perfectly intuitive and all buttons clicky and highly responsive.

As far as the bottom feeding function goes, I like the give on this silicon bottle and the fact that refill isn’t a crazy mess because of a bottle that’s too soft. Also, feeding is easy and effective.

I like the position of the squeezer and the fact that it doesn’t take up too much of the side of the mod, this means I can put my thumb on fire, my little finger under the base and my ring finger just there ready to squeeze if need be, ergonomics and positioning of everything is just perfect.fuchai squonk 213 squeeze

The versatility aspect is just off the hook, with all those battery options as well as the squonk/no squonk aspect…this is a cool little device that really functions like a charm, in my humble opinion.

As far as actual power goes, I’m really impressed, negligible ramp time and great heat distribution, as well as solid performance with power levels that feel true or even a cut above.

I later fitted an 18650 again and enjoyed the most beautiful 40W vape on a 0.5 Ohm coil, clouds for days and really surprising battery life!

A top performer for sure!

Battery Life

I found the screen’s sleep function very effective in keeping the battery usage to a minimum and was definitely impressed by trials with both a 2500 and 3000 mAh battery or wiith my 18650 and 20700. Vaping an average of 80 W I enjoyed 8 hours use one the 18650 and the same on the 20700, vaping at 100-110 W.


  • Solid and attractive, durable construction
  • Great ergonomics and weight
  • Battery versatility (Can be used with three types)
  • Convenient and streamlined bottom-feeding
  • Lovely colour screen
  • Excellent ramp time and great performance through feature list


  • Misleading name – Where does the 213 fit in?
  • User Manual and Brand Website exclude mention of features eg; it’s ability to work like a normal mod without the use of the bottom feeder

Final Review Verdict

The Sigelei Fuchai Squonk 213 is everything you ask for and more out of a squonker, with a feature list as long as your arm and some features that put it in a class all of its own.

It’s not just a bottom feeder, it’s a regular box mod too, one that can run on 3 types of batteries and hit some pretty decent wattages on a single cell too!!

I’ve enjoyed the look, the feel, the features and performance on this versatile device and highly recommend it for intermediate to experienced vapers who’re looking for a device that’s truly unique!


Would I buy the Sigelei Fuchai Squonk 213 if I lost/damaged the device? Definitely!

Smoant Ranker Mod Preview – Chuckles

The Ranker By Smoant

We have a new mod from Smoant – the Smoant Ranker.

smoant ranker marketing shot

Now come on no rude jokes – it can’t help its name…ooh matron…

Anyway looking at the Ranker anyone else get the Smoant Cylon image in their head?

ranker v cylonNot a surprise really as it shares the same chip as the Cylon and the same styling.

The Ranker is of a more flat design with a slanted screen – which I really am not sure about!

Like the Cylon though the screen is a 1.35in OLED colour screen and looks super clear. You can also customise the background and user interface.

smoant ranker screen

I was initially sceptical about the flat design as one of the benefits of the Cylon was its ability to use larger atomisers. However the specs say the Ranker is 31mm wide, but the tank will be sat on a raised platform so I am not sure what the maximum size tank you can use is?

This mod will output up to 218W and will need 2×18650 batteries which are not included in the kit.

You can customise the control curves to your own preference in Variable Wattage and Temperature control modes.

I am a bit puzzled with this mod – I have to be honest. It is like a flattened version of the Cylon and in my opinion not as pretty or practical.

It seems to want to jump on the same wagon as the Smok Mag kit to me.

Anyway if you can cope with never saying the name wrong this might be the mod for you. Sadly I am still a child and will always laugh when I say the name!
