Such a bummer when a cool tank has kinda crummy flavor. Obviously, your mileage may vary, but my mileage kinda sucked. The Tauren Elite RTA doesn’t have BAD flavor, just lacking flavor. The restricted lung feels nice and is honestly a bunny hop UP in flavor.

The post holes are kinda close together but not bad, it has a small footprint so it’s to be a little expected I guess. Still don’t get the “lite” vs “pro” but that’s not my business. If the “lite” had a fixed inner airflow, then I could see it maybe.

I’m kinda surprised this Sakerz Master Sub Tank video made it a full 5 min long. It’s a sub-tank so there isn’t much to talk about. The Sakerz coil heads are pretty great. These are much much better quality ( even if they are basically the same ) than those first sets of OG Sakerz coil heads I got. I can see why people loved the first Sakerz. These are easily among some of the best that HorizonTech has released, even dating back to the Falcon tanks.

I think I preferred the Falcon tanks to the Sakerz tanks. Especially in the aesthetic department. The Falcon 2 did have those “baby barf” colored tanks, but I just honestly can’t stand the shiny disco snakeskin pattern on these. No matter how great they vape, that is a thing that would keep me from using this tank on the reg.

Maxus Max is not a great name but oh well. It vapes awesome with the exception of the M1 mesh which I didn’t really love so much. The others are all quite nice, and the M5 is a juice hog.

The device itself is honestly really great. Good hand feel, good weight, nice and clicky side fire button. Dual 18650 is pretty tried and true at this point and I honestly really love this display. I know there are bigger ones out there, this one just seems really crispy and colorful to me.

Well hello and welcome! Time for some hot vape VLOG DAY action. FINALLY BACK TO A NON-JANK VLOG AND I’M SO GD EXCITED ABOUT IT!!! I’m always thankful for the breaks I take, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t miss streaming tremendously.

Retro Vaping will probably be getting bumped and I’m not OK with it because I have been DYING to get a build inside this SQY RDA. The SQY arrived shortly after Christmas and has just been sitting here, taunting me. So tonight it’s getting some hot first impressions action.

After having used some good and some less than good Smok products, it was a little difficult to get excited for this Smok Novo 2s and I guess kinda for good reason. It ends up being a little underwhelming, especially in a world of really top-notch pods.

The Novo 2s is cheap and bare-bones, it might work for a year, it might work for a few days. The airflow switch might be great, or it might be awful. There are workarounds to it but… honestly… shouldn’t be necessary. I’ve had disposables that vape WORLDS better than this and were honestly more reliable than this. Kind of a shame.

The Atlas from SC out of the Philippines is easily my favorite mech I’ve had in the last year. The things I love about mechs like the Clutch, or the Avalanche are present here and then some. I gushed enough in the video I think, but the machining and fit and finish of this mech are AMAZING.

The soft buttery press of that switch bar is euphoric in nature, truly a beautiful glorious thing. This is one of the few expensive “high-end” devices I have purchased with my own money, that I wasn’t let down by in some way. Can not love this thing enough. Feels awesome to have a spankin new high-end mech from the Philippines.

Here’s the thing, the Nord PRO is fine. The restricted lung vapes fine, not blowing me away with quality, but completely and totally fine. Same with the MTL. If you like an open MTL, the Nord Pro has a completely fine -open- MTL vape.

The auto-switch like I said in the video just won’t fire with the MTL coil unless you cover up the lung hole. Flavor on these NORD PRO coil heads is surprisingly radical. Everything else is just kinda fine. Also, there is a coil head lock on the bottom of the pods.

My only real subjective gripe with the Blotto 1.5 RTA is that the airflow feels too restricted, more restricted than the original Blotto RTA ( smoother… but more restricted ). The Blotto MAX is my favorite Blotto RTA so far. Kinda dig everything about it. I would have LOVED a nice big single-coil in there, but maybe next time. Otherwise, this thing is kind of a certified banger. Really great flavor for such a honkin RTA.

Lots of blotto rtas to choose from, lots of vape science to read…

Lots to love about the TonyB Pulse AIO (by Vandy Vape), few personal nitpicks on an otherwise pretty rockin AIO. Truly and honestly if the black and smokey black didn’t arrive in the time I was shooting this video, It might have turned out differently.

Don’t forget to adjust that pin when you switch to a coil head based tank, and probably back again if you swap to a BORO tank. The chip was nice and snappy, plenty powerful with a good battery. Obviously, the 21700 battery life is a big improvement over the Billet Box’s 18650.

The first Pandora MTL RTA was fine, it wasn’t amazing, but it was a solid MTL RTA. I didn’t have super high hopes for this, and I’m glad I didn’t because I don’t super love the Pandora MTL RTA V2. Over-engineered and cluttered is how I would describe this RTA.

The lower MM airflow holes are mostly ok, but not super enjoyable. For an “open” MTL the Pandora MTL V2 RTA does much much better. The bell cap is kinda cool, but man it’s a bit of a pain to get it up and going, and you will have to fill through the bottom if you wanna go full bell cap.
