As I said in the video, I shot this at the end of November 2021. Everything I said still stands, and I feel the same way about the Vaporesso XROS 2 and XROS Mini right now as I did then.
I did receive the XROS Nano recently and will be doing a separate video for that little number. I’m honestly not sure where the confusion came from, but I will be including the XROS2 and XROS mini in the next pod ranking video.
Although I didn’t officially acknowledge its status, this Palate RSA is in line to become a certified banger. I don’t know what else I can say here that I didn’t say in the video. The flavor on the Palate is stellar, the airflow is stellar, the deck is easy to build and wick. It’s honestly a very approachable atomizer.
Squonk, don’t drip on it. Unless you want to, I’m not the boss of you.
Welcome to Dangleclack city, population GrimmGreen. The Tauren Max RDTA is not a stellar RDTA in my opinion. Apart from being an RDTA, the o-rings on the bottom of the Tauren MAX RDTA are quite weak and wobbly.
The deck honestly isn’t too bad, the airflow ( while smooth and plentiful ) kinda prohibits you from using this as a dripper in a pinch, and that kinda sucks. The overall vape experience and vape quality are very nice.
I can’t get over how much better the SQY RDA deck is than the prior RYE RDA. The RYE had a fine deck, but the SQY has a wicked easy deck. The SQY airflow kinda rules, super customizable like the RYE was. Flavor is very good as to be expected.
Hard not to love the SQY. The construction is real nice, machining is real nice. The o-rings get a little snug on the bottom but…. it’s certainly not a deal-breaker.
The Uwell VALYRIAN 3 looks dented to me and will always look dented to me and I can’t not see it. It’s enough to make me not want to use this device regularly. The VALYRIAN 3 sub tank tho… now that is a banger.
How do you now love that flip top filling?! The 0.14 spare mesh coil head in this VALYRIAN is a BANGER. The 0.35 SS Mech is great, but less flavorful and much more OPEN of an airflow. I can only assume the 0.15 and 0.16 coil heads are equally awesome.
Well, it turns out that the VooPoo Vinci pods AREN’T hit and miss for me, they just seem to hit now. Everything also stays very very clean. Other than my deliberate over-fill, I’ve had zero issues with leaking on the VooPoo Vinci Q and Royal pod systems.
The coils / pods taste great and feel nice and saturated. These Vinci coil heads vape worlds better IMO than those older Vinci coil heads, despite being compatible with each other, and probably actually being the same coil heads. The quality is higher, it feels like VooPoo has really dialed in their MTL coil heads.
I’m always pleasantly surprised when a pod vapes good, and the Smoant Charon Baby Plus vapes good. The RDL is very restricted, and the MTL is quite open, but both taste and feel pretty good. The switch is quick and consistent. The weight is… heavy and I don’t know if it’s good or bad.
The bottom is rounded and awful, this is something that should stand up and just refuses to. Kind of a bummer. Otherwise, it’s got a solid battery, solid capacity, and is wicked easy to fill.
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.
