Hellvape Rebirth RDA Review

Again, we are pleased with the company Hellvape together with the world-famous reviewer Mike Vapes . They decided to sip the drip together, and the new product absorbed several “working” solutions at once. Let’s see what came out of this symbiosis.

New exterior, you can say classic. The simple form factor is a regular cylinder without bulges with a tapered top. This appearance will certainly be pleasant to many. In general, the bow turned out pretty neat and pleasant.

The color scale, as, however, and always at this manufacturer, amazes. As I understand it, from the start, versions with both steel and aluminum domes will be available.

Drip types included two, both are 810th. One is made of resin in the style of honeycomb, the other is made of translucent plastic.

Drip types are seated in a top cap, which is also a part-dome. The internal processing is probably spherical, but I did not find a photo to prove it. In its lower part, two blowing grilles are seen, which are located symmetrically. On each side 16 holes of 1.2 mm diameter are realized. adjustment of the blower takes place by turning the dome relative to the base; there is no risk for convenience.

Deca is quite interesting, and most importantly variable.

Air ducts are arranged so that they direct the air flow at an angle from the bottom of the deck. Those. we receive “pseudo-low” blowing. Outlets in size decent.

VooPoo X217 Mod Review

Introduction – The X217 from VooPoo / Woody Vapes

The VooPoo X217 is a powerful 217w regulated mod that runs of your choice of dual batteries (21700, 20700 or 18650). It’s a heavy sucker that looks good.voopoo x-217 screen

VooPoo are based in China and were originally established in 2014 to serve the medical and industrials fields. Since 2017 and with the acquisition of US brand Woody Vapes, VooPoo have bought us some really interesting gear including: Drag, Drag 2, Drag mini, Voopoo Too, VMate and the funny little Rota Pod System.

VooPoo are known for their Gene Chip, which is one of the fastest and most accurate chipsets on the market! They have included the latest version of their Gene Chip inside the X217, the “Gene FIT” which is also found in both the new Drag mods minus the annoying fit menu!

So what do we make of the Voopoo X217? Is it really as good as it looks? Let’s dive down and take a detailed look at it.

Design and Build Quality

The Voopoo X217 comes in the normal card box with over sleeve, I almost wet myself in excitement on opening the box; this thing is super sexy to look at, nothing like the graphic on the box!voopoo x-217 content

The X217 is heavy, made of a moulded zinc alloy, resin and leather. The device has a height of 93mm with a tank diameter of over 30mm, so far the design and build quality in my opinion is exemplary!voopoo x-217 blank

Taking a tour of the Voopoo X217

Starting at the top the 510 connection is centre placed with a spring loaded gold plated pin and extremely well turned threading. The 510 plate and the mod top are held in position by 4 hatch screws!voopoo x-217 510

The bottom of the device holds the battery door. The door has all the normal manufacturing and safety marks, the door is opened by a simple slide switch which incorporates 4 very small battery vent holes.voopoo x-217 door infoThe door itself is hinged and stays open until you push is shut, the inside of the door has battery orientation marks (hard to make out in low light) and gold plated connection points.voopoo x-217 doorThe battery compartment is lined with plastic and has spring loaded gold plated connection points inside.voopoo x-217 bay

The back of the X217 has a thin strip of resin with “VooPoo” branding.voopoo x-217 close backEach side of the device features leatherette stickers that have a stitch like pattern and a decorative bar that is held on to the mod by hatch screws.voopoo x-217 side bar

The work face is elegantly simple with the centre fire button having a resin inlay.voopoo x-217 fbThe SS adjustment buttons are in the form of a bar shaped roughly like a flat diamond, the micro USB charge/update port is located at the bottom of the work face along with the Woody Vapes logo.voopoo x-217 adj

The HD colour screen is 1.3in TFT; it has a clean and sharp look making it very easy on the eye, the screen contains all the normal info you would expect to see!

One of the features immediately apparent is LED strips surrounding the work face shaped roughly like a U. When lit the LED’s simulate a breathing pulse.voopoo x-217 120

How Does the VooPoo X217 Mod Perform?

For this review I will be using my Freemax MeshPro Tank with a 0.2Ohm Kanthal double mesh coil top up with Double Drip Strawberry Banana Waffle e-liquid.voopoo x-217 liquid dispI will be testing the TC capabilities with my Drop Dead RDA with SS 0.12Ω and the same e-liquid.voopoo x-217 tc

60 to 90w

I started at my normal 60w for this tank but soon came to realise that while getting fairly good flavour the combo was producing humongous amount of vapour with the AF closed to half the vape was a bit on the cool side.

Upping the wattage to 70W then to 80w was better. Topping off at 90w gave a nice warm vape again with a tremendous amount of vapour and satisfying flavour.

95 to 120w

Using my Drop Dead I tested the mod in increments of 10w from 95 to 120w; while well out of my comfort zone the mod performed admirably.voopoo x-217 120

Ohms meter

I have noticed the Ohms meter is slightly off reading my SS 0.12Ω coils as 0.13Ω and my stock coil at 0.21Ω not a big one but worth mentioning.

TC Dry and Damp Tests

I dry fired the cotton at 420f and 50w for less than a second press of the fire button (x5) as you can see there is some faint yellowing of the cotton.voopoo x-217 dry

For the damp test with fresh cotton I loaded the cotton with liquid and tooted until I felt it was dry; this was a pass as there were no burn marks on the cotton.

Battery Life

Vaping the Voopoo X217 at 90w with dual 21700 batteries installed I can get approx 1½ days vape time which is phenomenal for me, dual 20700 batteries I can get nearly a full day and dual 18650 batteries I get over 5 hrs.

The 20700 batteries I noticed did cause a little battery rattle the other were held firmly in the mod.

LED Lights

These are nice and bright but to me they are distracting with their pulse or breathing, as VooPoo call it. I tend to keep the lights off.


At first I thought it was a little pointless to have a clock; but found myself looking at it quite often for the time lol, if you leave the unit alone for 25 to 30 seconds the clock activates! I had been using the X217 for over a day before I realised you could change the style of the clock by pressing the adjustment buttons lol.voopoo x-217 clock

Fire Button

Is a little awkward to locate without looking, at times I thought the mod had misfired, but in reality I just didn’t push the button lol.


After all my testing was done I went to remove the cap from my Drop Dead RDA! The result was me pulling the top of the mod off; I did not use any force as my DD cap is easy to remove!voopoo x-217 isd

The top did not come off completely as you can see it’s still attached by the wires to the 510, the screws, screw into plastic; and therefore the bite is not secure. The X217 still works fine; I will have to get some superglue to repair it before I will even think of using the mod again!voopoo x-217 dam plas

Final Review Verdict

Ignoring the damage I caused to mine for now, the Voopoo X217 is a very heavy mod even without the cells loaded. The device is gorgeous to look at and certainly doesn’t look anything like the graphic on the box! It’s easy to use and while the menu system is different from other VooPoo products it doesn’t take long to learn.

If you buy this mod I recommend not using an RDA due to stress of pulling the cap off to re juice, use a stock sub ohm tank or an RTA with it. That way no stress is placed on the top and the screws, VooPoo need to redesign how the top is attached to the body; or I predict a lot of complaints with this one!

Would I buy the Voopoo X217 again? While I like 99% of VooPoo products I’ve got to say “No” with this one.

Smok X-Force Kit Review – Assembling the X-Force

Many of you saw it coming. It was only a matter of time before Smok decided to step their feet into the sub-ohm pod system market. Now its finally here: The Smok X-Force might look like a heavily stylized version of the familiar Joyetech Atopack, but it brings a few improvements to the table. Firing up to a maximum of 45 watts, made possible by the integrated 2000mAh battery, the Smok X-Force packs some decent punch given its tiny size.
Let’s take a closer look at the details of the mod and see why it might be a suitable device for you.

Review: Smok X-Force kit

Smok X-Force Review

Manufacturing Quality

In comparison to the rest of Smok’s lineup, the X-Force can be to considered to be the more minimalist among the bunch. Unlike the Joyetech Atopack though, the overall design is far from mellow.

The two-tone colorways only help to accentuate the bold edges arrayed throughout the mod, giving it that clean yet futuristic look that we’ve come to expect from Smok.

The device itself is exceedingly lightweight but that shouldn’t be confused with a lack of durability. The robust polycarbonate body holds up to regular wear and tear and effectively shields the internals of the mod from the rigors of everyday use.

It’s not shockproof though so I wouldn’t recommend testing the device out by dropping it on purpose to see how much punishment it can take.

Tolerances on the fit and finish on the Smok X-Force are tight. You won’t get any annoying creaking or rattling from this mod, which is a surprise considering its polycarbonate construction. The mod is pieced together almost perfectly and gives off the feeling that its a solid chunk of tech, designed for everyday use. So while it’s not indestructible, that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to baby this mod either.Smok X-Force available colors

The firing bar on the Smok X-Force is conveniently located on the side just like every other Smok mod. It features a clicky and tactile response when pressed, giving you a good feeling for when exactly the mod starts to fire.

An array of simple LED lights are present which serve as a rough indicator for the remaining charge that the 2000mAh battery has left. The mouthpiece located up top is ergonomically shaped and feels comfortable to use even for extended vaping sessions.

Flavor Quality

Based on the coil design, it looks like Smok has taken a page directly out of Joyetech’s books. The X-Force coil uses an insulated ceramic base, perfect for keeping heat away from the delicate internals of the mod.

This also gives it the added advantage of a quicker ramp-up time due to the fact that heat is channeled more efficiently through the coil, not only providing a better vaping experience but also helping to preserve the battery in the long run.

Rated at 0.3 ohms, the X-Force coil provides a decent balance of flavor and vapor production. While it’s a single coil system, it manages to stay competitive with even the more power hungry setups of Smok’s flagship tanks thanks to its considerably larger size.

While the Smok X-Force kit doesn’t have the option to adjust the airflow to your tastes, the vertical airflow system does a good job of providing enough air without feeling too loose. It’s also surprisingly smooth, without any of the characteristic turbulence or whistling often seen with badly designed airflow systems.

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Kits.

Power Flexibility

As is standard with pretty much any device in this category, the Smok X-Force doesn’t possess any of the multiple vaping modes and advanced functions that we see in your typical variable wattage box mod. The output reaches a maximum of 45 watts at a full charge and overall power declines as the battery depletes, not unlike how a mechanical mod performs.

To clarify, if you’re looking for features such as variable wattage, temperature control, preheat, or TCR, then the Smok X-Force kit might not be the best option for you.

It does have a basic set of protective features that though that make the entire vaping experience a lot safer for the average beginner such as an 8-second cutoff timer, basic short circuit protection, and a low voltage protection that prevents your mod from firing when the battery can no longer keep up.

Ease of Use

Getting the Smok X-Force set up and running is hardly a challenge, even for the most neophyte of vapers. Simply yank out the tank/mouthpiece located at the top of the mod, insert the ceramic coil in the right orientation then you’re good to go.

Once the tank is inserted, filling it up with your e-liquid of choice is a breeze thanks to the easily accessible side filling port which can be found right underneath the mouthpiece. The fill port is adequately sized so you shouldn’t have any trouble fitting your bottle spouts in there.

The tank holds up to 7ml of e-liquid which is convenient for those who dislike refilling their mods frequently. Basic operation of the device is easy as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 clicks on the firing bar to turn in on or off for easy activation and safekeeping.

Keeping tabs on the remaining battery life can be easily done thanks to the highly visible LED indicators, and charging up the internal battery is a no-brainer thanks to the use of a standard micro USB port.


With dimensions measuring out to 154 * 82.3 * 81.7 mm (tank and mod combined) the Smok X-Force might not be the most compact kit available in the market today, it’s definitely one of the more powerful and easy to use kits.

Nevertheless, it still easily fits in your standard sized pocket. While the angular design isn’t as streamlined as its direct competitor, the Joyetech Atopack, it’s still comfortable to hold.

The Smok X-Force’s 2000mAh integrated battery might not be the most long-lasting either but it manages to last for a good portion of the day, even for the more hard-core vapers. It definitely won’t match up to the performance of dual 18650 devices or even single 21700 or 20700 battery mods, so definitely keep that in mind when deciding whether to pick this mod up or not.Smok X-Force heating coils

Overall Experience

The Smok X-Force doesn’t have any real flaws to speak of. The lack of features might be considered a con, but then again this is a mod designed for simple and straightforward use. Adding heaps of functionality to the design would only serve to get in the way of that.

With its solid vaping performance, acceptable battery life, and portable/ergonomic design, the Smok X-Force is an easy to use, hard-hitting device that many beginners or even seasoned vapers will appreciate.
