Bit of a longer one for a more complex device. I also want to say that i’m really happy with this video, I don’t think I say that ever. Believe it or not I have fun shooting and editing and I had a lot of fun doing this video. So I really hope you enjoy it. Now then….. I honestly probably could have spent more time trying every accessory, when I say this thing does a lot, it really does a lot. It does it all pretty well too, I don’t love the rotating pressure lock system. I find it cumbersome as I said in the video.
Everything I have put on this has worked without issue. My first grey ABYSS did on a few occasions dump out my tank when I had a billet bridge in it, this newer version has not done that at all.
Right out of the gate, the Reflex from EVOLV is quite pricey, quite fiddly and overall not a great vaping experience. The tech on the inside is pretty fascinating and works as intended. The vape does feel different than a traditional “on/off” airflow switch, but not by much. Certainly not enough to justify that sticker price.
As neat as the tech is, everything else on this pod falls terribly short. The fit and finish aren’t great. It feels outdated and cheap already. The airflow is uncomfortable, sharp, turbulent and uneven feeling. The airflow is also louder than other pods. The flavor is some of the worst I have had in a pod.
The Vaporesso Luxe PM40 is one of the products that Vaporesso does have a PMTA accepted for. Which I actually explains a lot about this particular devices sylings. As I said in the video, I personally really enjoy the loose / open MTL vape from the 0.8ohm coil heads, but it isn’t objectively good or smooth or versatile airflow.
Otherwise the size is great, obviously a popular design. The colors and finishes are a little all over the place. I like this blue one I have, but that’s kinda it. The others are more strange and this orange one looks MUCH better on the box.
There are better products out there, and there are much much worse products out there. Though the LUXE pm 40 might be one of the only types of these devices left on the market in the United States. I will say I still expected more from Vaporesso than a Nord-alike.
At the end of the day, these KOKO Prime got me back using the Caliburn G batteries a lot more. I like the KOKO don’t get me wrong, but it is much more of a “lanyard” vape.
Form factor is much more suited to that. The Caliburn G is a much more normal natural shape we are used to. It works for a reason. Exact same vape, different form factors.
I did have some auto switch issues on the blue unit I received. That blue unit was from VERY early on, pre release. Every KOKO Prime afterward has been basically flawless. If I had to choose between the two, I would certainly go with the original Caliburn G battery / pod – 0.8ohm mesh coil boosh done love it.
VooPoo and their magnetic PNP coils system has really won me over man. The Argus Pro is a rad little piece of hardware. Doesn’t feel cheap or rough around the edges in any way. Over the years VooPoo has stepped up their quality game and it shows on this. Just feels really nice in the hand.
The Argus ( little guy ) version does have some limitations including no auto-draw feature and no firing any coils .015 and below. The screen on it is also a little bit more “simple” traditional LCD looking screen. Even for being a lot smaller than the Pro, it still feels real nice and techy in the hand.
Really just a great product for smokers and vapers looking for a solid coil head based MTL ( mouth to lung ) “pod” system. It’s hard to call this strictly a “pod” system just because of the size. Regardless, the Endura M18 is legit solid.
As far as coil head life goes, 2 of the coil heads lasted me about 30mls, another only lasted a few days, but these last two have both been going strong well after the 30ml mark.
Hopefully this video answers all your questions about the Type2. Sorry for the confusion on the price, I miss spoke when I said $70. Otherwise I might as well say it again. The Type Two is an “old school” style RTA. Smooth restricted lung, low wattage, banger.
Big fan of the original, pretty big fan of this HITA INK. The MTL leaves a lot to be desired IMO, but it’s not awful. The coil heads aren’t different from the original, but the original gave me a much better MTL somehow. It’s a small little banger that managed to remain on my desk for a while now, and I don’t see it going anywhere anytime soon.
Don’t think I can add anything else to the gushing over the Caliburn G. As of right now, it’s really the only pod I care to use. Superb and flavorful MTL. Just a big fan of the Caliburn G. Would recommend again and again
