Coil Master Matrix Mechanical Mod Preview – Cyberpunk!

The Matrix by Coil Master Previewed

The Coil Master Matrix Mech Mod is a new release from the vaping brand Coil Master.

Coil Master not only make coils and tools for vapers, they now make mods and tanks and the range look pretty and tough!coil master matrix mech mod contents

The Matrix consists of a nickel plated tube which holds a single 18650 battery which is not included in the kit.

At the base of the tube is a screw in cap which retains the battery and is also the fire switch.

Over the tube you add the sleeve. On the Matrix this is a textured matt black finish. If the sleeve becomes worn you can simply just replace that and the mod will look as good as new again!

The mod is 24mm in diameter so you will be able to use tanks up to this diameter with no overhang.

At the top of the mod there is a hybrid 510 connection. The internal electrical components have copper contacts and a magnetic switch help to keep voltage drop to a minimum.

Wismec Active Kit Review – Rugged and Ready to go!

Introduction To The Active Kit by Wismec!

Rugged mods are few and far between on the vaping scene. The most popular would be the Geek Vape Aegis Range. But now we have the Wismec Active Box Mod!
On first looks, the Wismec Active is an 80w, 2100mAh internal battery device with all the usual firing modes. But hidden behind its rugged looking exterior and grilles is the functionality to use it as a Bluetooth Speaker. And I can tell you something, it works really well!Active-Grille-Shot

The Wismec Active Kit comes with the Armor NS Plus tank and is available in three different colours, but you can purchase extra skins in a variety of colours if you wish to personalise the device a little bit more!

Design and Build Quality

Amor NS Plus Tank

Drip Tip/Top Cap:

The drip tip is 510 sized and made out of a cloudy grey plastic.NS-Plus-Drip-Tip

Top Fill Port:

Pushing the cap to one side opens up the filling port. You can locate where to push by finding the arrow on the top cap.NS-Plus-Top-Fill

It is a big enough size to accommodate most bottle nib sizes.NS-Plus-Filling

Tank Glass:

With my version, I got the 4.5ml bubble glass (non-TPD version)NS-Plus-Tank-Glass

On closer inspection, the glass is actually plastic whicc is likely to fit in with the rugged theme. Having said that, I would be careful when using citrus and menthol based e-liquids, just in case it cracks.

The Airflow Base:

On the base we have the airflow control ring. It is very smooth to adjust, but has the right amount of stiffness to not let it adjust whilst it is in your pocket or bag. The airflow holes come in the form of two large cyclops slots that have 3 different holes inside. In between the airflow slots is some aggressive knurling to help grip the airflow.NS-Plus-Airflow

On the base there is some Wismec Branding.NS-Plus-Base

Amor NS Plus Tank:

Overall, the construction and look of the Amor NS Plus tank is pretty good! I personally would have rather see a glass tank section rather than plastic one, but my one hasn’t had any issues with citrus or menthol flavours… YET.

The Wismec Active Mod:

510 Connector:

At the top of the Wismec Active we have the 510 connector which is offset towards the fire button side it has as stainless steel surround as well as a gold plated, springy positive pin.Active-510-Connector

The Front & Back of the Device

On the front of the Active Mod we have a fire button at the top, an LED screen in the middle and the +/- buttons as well as the charge port beneath a rubber bung.Active-Screen

Next to the micro USB port is a reset button, just in case you would like to reset it back to factory settings.Active-USB

The screen is so simple and easy to read. Which is the main thing I like about this device.

On the back of the Active Mod there is the Bluetooth buttons for controlling your audio as well as pairing with your chosen device.Active-Back-Shot

You can also add the included carabiner clip if you wish to hook the kit to a belt or a bag!Active-Carabiner

The Sides:

On the sides of the Wismec Active we have the speaker grilles. On one side there is the big speaker, on the other side is what looks like a smaller microphone port. Quite possibly for making and receiving phone calls through the device.Active-Speaker

The outside of the Wismec Active is surrounded by a silicone protector which is there to take the brunt of any dings that it may get. These are removable just in case you wish to customise yours for a different colour.

How Does The Wismec Active Kit Perform?

Amor NS Plus Tank Coil Performance

WS01 Triple 0.2Ω Coil (40-80w)

This is the direct lung coil included inside the kit, and I have found it best to be vaped at around 48 to 66w depending on what e-liquid you are usingNS-Plus-WS01-Coil

Flavour and cloud production from the get go is pretty good, but it does diminish over time and I have got about 7 days out of this coil

WS04 MTL 1.3Ω Coil (8-14w)

This is the mouth to lung coil included inside the kit, and I have found that this is best at around 10w. I would personally recommend e-liquids around 50/50 to allow the coil to wick efficiently.
NS-Plus-WS04-Coil
The flavour and cloud production from the WS04 isn’t anything to write home about for me personally, but it would be acceptable for MTL vapers.

The Wismec Active Mod:

Overall, the mod is quite nice! it fits nicely in the hand, it isn’t massively heavy and most of the buttons are in the right place!

Active-Side-Shot

The one thing that bugs me about the design of the Wismec Active is the location of the fire button. I feel that it would have been better located where the carabiner clip attaches. The thumb rests on that section of the mod a lot better than it does on the front.

As for the speaker, no complaints. For the size of the device it performs a treat. I will be updating the review with it’s durability soon!

Battery Life

Another thing that I would like to note is the battery life. The 2100mAh internal battery has lasted me on average about three quarters of a day at 50w using the WS01 Coil. I personally would expect an internal battery device to last me AT LEAST a whole day.

Pros

  • Looks and feels good
  • Easy to use
  • Well constructed
  • Good flavour
  • Rugged
  • Nice sounding speaker

Cons

  • Battery life
  • Fire button could be better located

Final Review Verdict

Overall, I think the Wismec Active is a nice and handy little kit!

Yes, there are a few points that I would like to see rectified, but as it stands, it is a nice kit to use when you’re out and about!

Advken Manta RTA Review

The Advken Manta is a 24 mm RTA that comes with two different glass tubes and features an innovative side airflow design to give users a more flavorful vape. I had personally never heard of Advken prior to this review, but having gotten to use their clever little RTA, it’s definitely a company I’ll be watching out for in the future.

A Look at the Contents

The Manta RTA comes in a small, square cardboard box, with the Manta logo and a manta ray background on the front, and a list of contents, company information, and the required legal warnings, on the back. The kit contains the 24-mm Manta RTA, a spare glass tube, a ‘Doctor Coil’ screwdriver, and a bag of accessories (o-rings, grub screws and a fine cloth).

Advken-Manta-RTA-kit

It’s a decent offering, and I particularly like the fact that Advken included two different types of glass tubes for the tank – a classic cylinder, and a ‘bubble glass’, which actually looks more like a jar and extends over the 24-mm stainless frame of the RTA in order to hold more e-liquid. I would have liked to see an adapter for 510 drip tips included in the box, but if you prefer 810, Goon-stye tips, it shouldn’t be too big of an issue.

Design and Build Quality

At 46-mm-tall, the Manta is relatively small for a 24-mm RTA, but thanks to the included bubble tank, it can hold up to 5 ml of juice. If you’d like the Manta to be slim as well, and don’t mind a reduced e-liquid capacity,  you can just use it with the classic glass tube, which only holds 3 ml.

Advken-Manta-RTA-contents

Starting from the top, the Advken Manta RTA features a low-profile Ultem 810 drip with an elegant metal ring at the base which makes it look like it protrudes from the top cap even less than it actually does. I like the drip tip, honestly I do, but it’s a bit too low for my taste. I can barely fit my lips around it without touching the metal top cap, and that can be a problem when the metal gets hot. It looks good, but it’s definitely not the most practical Goon drip tip I’ve ever used. As I mentioned above, there is no 510 tip adaptor, but you can use other 810 drip tips, if you want.

The top cap features some stylish knurling to make it easier to unscrew and reveal the two top-filing slots. They are large enough to fit virtually any kind of dropper or unicorn bottle, making filling the tank a breeze. The thing I don’t like about this particular top-filling system is that the top cap has too much threading, and while that may not seem like a big deal, it can be. Because the top cap has a lot of travel, when you screw it back down, you’re also creating extra pressure inside the tank, which pushes the juice down and can result in leaking. It actually happened to me a couple of times, until I figured out the proper wicking method to prevent leaks.

Manta-RTA-closeup

The chimney is fused to the top of the Manta RTA, so it’s not removable. I like the fact that its is relatively short, which means that the vapor has a short distance to travel from the atomization chamber to your mouth, which ensures intense flavor.

The base features an adjustable airflow ring, with three large air slots on each side. Two would have been more than enough, as there is virtually no difference between vaping with two air slots or three, but I guess Advken just wanted to make sure that no one complained about poor airflow. Definitely no chance of that when vaping on the Manta with all six air slots wide open.

Manta-RTA-build-deck

The Advken Manta RTA uses a staggered Velocity-style build deck, with four massive coil slots that should feature virtually any type of wire, from your standard Clapton to whatever exotic builds you prefer. It might look a little different, but this build deck is as easy to work with as the standard Velocity. This post design may be a bit older, but it’s still my favorite one, just because it makes mounting the coils so incredibly easy.

The Manta deck features bottom airflow slots right under the coils, but it also has a smaller air hole right between the two posts, which ensures that the coils also get airflow from the sides. I didn’t pay much attention to this feature at first, but after vaping on it and getting blown away by the awesome flavor, I realized that it makes all the difference.

Advken-Manta-RTA-bubble-glass

The four wicking slots are pretty standard, but you have to make sure that you get enough cotton in them to prevent leaking, but not too much, to avoid getting dry hits. Like with any RTA, properly wicking the Manta is essential for an enjoyable vaping experience.

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

Setting Up

If you’ve ever set up an RTA before, doing the same with the Advken Manta should be an issue-free affair. Thanks to the Velocity-style deck, mounting the coils is super easy, but I do recommend that you get them as close to the posts as possible, whithoiy actually touching it, to make sure that they don’t make contact with the chimney when assembling the tank.

Advken-Manta-RTA-deck

As always, wicking the coils is the most important part. Because of the pressure created when screwing on the top cap after filling the Manta, you have to make sure that the cotton insulates the wicking slots well enough to prevent leaks. But stuffing lots of cotton in there is not a good idea either, as it makes it hard for the e-liquid to reach the coils, which will result in bland or even dry hits. For some reason, most other reviews of this RTA don’t even mention this, but it’s a real problem.

I recommend using moderate amounts of cotton, but brushing the ends of the wicks to make them fluffier. This will insulate the slots well enough, without actually hindering the juice from easily reaching the coils. I needed a couple of tries to actually get it right, but it can be done, so don’t despair.

Advken-Manta-filling

How It Vapes

If you manage to get the wicking right, the Advken Manta rewards you with thick and flavorful clouds of vapor. I was about to give up on it after two failed wicking attempts and two tanks of spilled juice, but I’m glad I didn’t. This is a great RTA with a poorly implemented top-filling system. If they had simply opted for a swivel top cap design, like SMOK’s TFV12, or simply shorter threading, the Manta would have probably been one of my all-time favorite tanks, but even so, there’s no denying that it puts out great flavor and impressive vapor production.

The adjustable slots on the base of the Advken Manta ensure that you always have plenty of airflow available, and the dual-airflow design of the build deck means that the coils are hit by air from both the bottom and the sides, which, coupled with the short chimney, guarantee excellent flavor.

Advken-Manta-RTA-bubble-glass

I didn’t mention it too often in this review, but the bubble glass is one of the most note-worthy features of the Advken Manta RTA kit. It holds a whopping 5 ml of juice, and I actually think it looks a lot better on the tank than the standard tube. I’ve been using it exclusively from the beginning, and I love it.

As I mentioned, I did have some trouble with leaking, but only until I figured out the right way to wick the Advken Manta. It’s been dry as a whistle ever since, but I admit I keep a close eye on the slots at the base every time I refill it, to make sure it doesn’t start leaking again.

Advken-Manta-RTA-drip-tip

Conclusion

The Advken Manta is not a perfect RTA. It could use a better top cap design, the Goon-style drip tip is a bit too short and doesn’t come with a 510 adaptor, and the build-deck doesn’t have a single-coil option. That last one is a subjective con, to be perfectly honest. There are plenty of single-coil RTAs to choose from, and I actually prefer dual-coil builds, so it’s not a big problem, but I just thought I’d mention it.

That being said, the Manta RTA does also have plenty of interesting features, like the cool bubble glass, the staggered Velocity-style deck that makes building a simple and stress-free affair, and the airflow design that guarantees excellent flavor and vapor production. Did I mention that this is also one of the most affordable RTAs money can buy? In my opinion, the positives outweigh the cons by quite a margin, so I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

ELeaf iStick Pico Kit vs Pico Dual Review: Which One To Choose?

The Eleaf iStick Pico is a dream come true for beginner vapers who want a simple interface. Because they won’t have to compromise on features. What’s more, the product is portable, easy to use and best of all, performs outstandingly with its phenomenal Melo III Mini tank. As if this isn’t enough to lure you in, the price is less than $40.

iStick-Pico-Kit-colors

The iStick Pico + Melo III Mini Tank Highlights

What’s in the box:

  • 1× iStick Pico (no batteries included)
  • 1× MELO III Mini Atomizer
  • 1× 0.3 ohm Coil Head
  • 1× 0.5 ohm Coil Head
  • 4× O-Rings
  • 1× USB Cable
  • 2× User Manual

MELO-III-Tank-colors

Specs and Features:

  • Size: 45mm*23mm*70.5mm
  • 510 Threaded
  • Works with a one 18650 cell
  • Modes available: VW/Bypass/TC (Ni,Ti,SS,TCR-M1,M2,M3)
  • Output wattage: 1-75W
  • Resistance for TC: 0.05-1.5ohm
  • Resistance VW and Bypass: 0.1-3.5ohm
  • TC range: 100-315℃/200-600℉

MELO III Mini:

  • Diameter: 22mm
  • Length: 55mm
  • Capacity: 2ml
  • Thread type: 510 thread
  • Material: 304 stainless steel

Tank

The Melo III Mini has a typical sub-ohm design. There are grooves cut into the top cap. This way, vapers can hold it easily and unscrew for filling the slots inside with liquid. The tank is also top filling which is always a plus point. As a result, it makes filling and refilling easier in a mess-free way.

The iStick Pico Dual Highlights

Pico-Dual-different-colors

The Pico was simple, and yet it provided all of the functions that I wanted from a variable mod. However, it looks totally different from the first Pico, and it no longer fit in my front pants pocket. On the other hand, after taking it for a spin, I found that the new Pico Dual fixed all of the problems I had with the original Pico. Also, it provided even more benefits.

What’s in the box:

  • The Eleaf iStick Pico Dual 200W TC box mod (batteries not included)
  • The Eleaf Melo III Mini sub-ohm tank with a 0.3-ohm coil head pre-installed
  • An extra 0.5-ohm coil head
  • A bag of extra O-rings
  • A 2 amp USB cable that you can use for firmware upgrades and charge. You can use the USB to charge from the mod directly, but it is safer to use an external charger.
  • Manuals for the Pico Dual and the Melo III tank
  • An adapter that turns the mod into a power bank

Specs and Features:

  • Uses 2 x 18650 batteries
  • Can go up to 200 watts
  • Has temperature control settings for Nickel (Ni200), Titanium, and Stainless Steel
    22mm atomizers fit on the mod perfectly. Although 24mm and 25mm atomizers will fit on the mod, they will have quite a bit of overhang at the front
  • In wattage mode, you can use builds as low as 0.1 ohms
Comparing the iStick Pico & iStick Pico Dual

To compare the two, I picked some of the most important features for a vaper. That is Design, How It Operates, and How It Vapes.

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

Design of the iStick Pico & iStick Pico Dual

Pico-Dual-design

You can look at the original Pico and the Eleaf iStick Pico Dual from the side, they are about the same height and width. However, try to look at the top, and at the way, they orient the batteries in the Pico Dual. You will find that it has a lot more girth to it. The shape of the Pico Dual is a little like that of the RX200. It has a triangular shape with rounded corners. However, the Pico Dual is much smaller and still somehow fits very well in hand.

The Pico Dual still has that familiar Pico look because it retained the battery caps at the top of the mod. However, you no longer access the battery sled from the top, there is now a battery door at the bottom of the device. The bumps at the top are there so the 18650 batteries can still fit in the mod without adding any excess bulkiness.

However, the Eleaf iStick Pico Dual had to sacrifice compact design for more battery life and power. It is no longer feasible to place the bulky Pico in your pocket as it will bulge out. As a result, it will be very uncomfortable. On the other hand (pun not intended), the Pico Dual still maintained its ergonomic design. The rounded edges of the mod make it easy to hold in hand. In fact, it is smaller and lighter. As a result, it is more comfortable to use the Eleaf iStick Pico Dual than the RX200 or even the RX2/3 in dual battery mode.

You can find the fire button of the Eleaf iStick Pico Dual at the same spot as the original. It’s right on top of the sideways OLED screen. However, unlike the first Pico, you cannot thumb fire the Pico Dual. For this reason, the shape of the mod somehow forces you to hold it with the fire button at the front. Also, just like the original, the (+) and (-) buttons are on the bottom of the device. This is so you won’t accidentally be adjusting the wattage of the device.

How They Operate

The original Pico holds a special place in my heart. However, even though I dearly loved that tiny little mod, my vaping needs evolved. I found it did not have the form factor and the power to keep up. For one thing, the battery cap of the original Pico prevented any atomizers above 22mm in diameter from fitting properly. In addition, the Pico is a single 18650 device. This meant let’s say I was using a dual coil build on my atomizer and set the wattage at around 60 watts. Then, the battery would run out of juice after just a couple of hours of regular vaping. Speaking of power, the original Pico can only go up to 75 watts, even the Pico Mega (the one that uses a 26650 battery) can only pump out 80 watts. This is because they are both single battery devices.

The problems that I had with the original Pico were somehow fixed in the Eleaf iStick Pico Dual. Thanks to the dual 18650 batteries, a single charge can last an entire day. Also, because there are now two batteries, the mod can now go up to 200 watts. This means it can now accommodate the high-powered atomizers like the Smok Cloud Beast and the Melo 300.

However, even though the Eleaf iStick Pico Dual can fit larger atomizers now, they will still hang a bit over at the front edge of the device. Atomizers that have 22mm diameter bases will sit flush. Any larger than that, and you will see some overhang along the edge.

I also liked the fact that Eleaf still used the same board that they used for the Pico in the Pico Dual. I am not really into the large screens that display all sorts of information on them. Furthermore, large OLED screens and all the unnecessary bells and whistles would just make the batteries drain faster.

How They Vape

So, as I mentioned earlier, with the Pico Dual mod my dual Clapton Coil build had more chances to bring the vaping experience I was looking for. And it really did. I used the same MELO III Mini tank on both Pico and Pico Dual for the sake of experiment.

I’ve noticed that with the Pico Dual the TC mode was far more accurate than in the original Pico. Probably that was because of the lack of power that the first one could deliver to heat coils to the degree that was set on the screen.

With the maximum power and temperature that I could play with on a second Pico, I produced huge trails of vapor that made my room disappear in a whole cloud mist. However, on that extreme levels, the flavor did wane significantly.

All in All

In conclusion, I must say that both units have a perfect build, responsive screens, and ergonomic design. The first Pico I would choose more for a flavor and daily use, especially when I’m hanging out. The Pico dual fits my cloud-chucking cravings and is best for getting to the extremes of vapor if I’m up for some tricks.

iJoy Avenger 270 234W Voice Control TC Box MOD Review

iJoy Avenger 270 234W Voice Control TC Box MOD Review

The iJoy Avenger 270 is one of the latest and greatest box mods from the mammoth Chinese company. I was lucky enough to get one of these to test and review for you.

iJoy Avenger 270 Specifications

The iJoy Avenger 270 is the latest dual 20700 mod, that comes with a maximum power output of 234W. It supports temperature control (NI, SS & Ti), variable wattage in 0.5w increments, flashing lights and voice control…..yes that’s right VOICE CONTROL!!!

This is the first mod that I have seen that includes this “AI” type feature and there will be a little more on that later.

The device is slightly tapered at the edges and stands 89.8mm tall and 50mm wide. The spring loaded 510 connector is central to the device so even a 30mm atomiser does not overhang.

There is a bright colour screen that measures around 1 inch and RGB wattage up and down buttons on the front that can be customised to your taste. The fire button is more of a bar along the left hand side of the device and it has a very nice tactile click and is very easy to use.

Voice Control

Yes I have repeated myself once again, but this device has voice control. This is the first of its kind and is designed to allow changes of settings without touching the device. In theory its quite cool but in practice it is a little bit pointless. Yes you can change your wattage by speaking to it, but realistically you need to pick it up to vape anyway!

How does iJoy Avenger 270 work?

As with all “AI” voice controlled devices these days, there is a “wake up” word or phrase (think “OK Google, or “Alexa”) and this is “Hello iJoy”. By saying this phrase you notice the voice control symbol appears on the screen. You can then say certain phrases that will be undertaken by the “AI” of the device.

iJoy Avenger 270 234W Voice Control TC Box MOD ReviewHaving tested this out extensively, the voice control actually works very well in undertaking the commands, however I still think they are a little bit pointless.

Also the “romantic light” option didn’t do much to set the mood in my house unfortunately!

iJoy Avenger 270 Build Quality

These days mods are much of a muchness and the big difference for me is build quality. Features like “AI” do not hold a candle to how the device feels in your hand and the quality of the design. The iJoy Avenger 270 is heavier than most (316g with batteries) and took me by surprise when picking it up for the first time.

This is understandable as there is a microphone and more computing inside the device for the voice control. I personally prefer a heavier mod as it tends to give a feel of quality, but I think this is as far as I would want to go with something in my pocket.

All around the quality is very good other than the battery door. I feel like this wants to open further to make inserting the batteries easier, but I find that mine just feels a little bit stiff.

iJoy Avenger 270 Final Thoughts

This device has intrigued me and I love that iJoy are pushing the boundaries of features in a mod. Yes this is a bit of a gimmick but the fact that they are able to do something like this, opens the door for more features in the future.

Fortunately you can turn off all the tricks and lights. When using this as a standard mod with a clear colour screen, great battery life and a solid feel, is a great experience and all in all I am very impressed with the device!

DigiFlavor ETNA MTL RDA Preview – The Ultimate RDA for MTL Vapers?

DigiFlavor ETNA MTL RDA

Looking for a rebuildable atomiser with a tight draw? DigiFlavor just released the ETNA MTL RDA, a promising dripper atomiser for mouth-to-lung vapers. Designing an MTL RDA that has a very restrictive airflow and a satisfying MTL draw has been an ambitious goal for many vape manufacturers.  Has Digiflavor achieved this goal? Keep reading if you want to find out!

The Digiflavor ETNA – A MTL RDA Born in Italy

Digiflavor named this RDA after an active volcano in southern Italy. Great name, considering the Italian origin of the designers, Giuseppe Pappalardo, and Salvatore Agrosì. They worked in close collaboration with Digiflavor to create an RDA that aims to provide an excellent vape experience for mouth-to-lung vapers.

Made in 22 mm, this RDA features a single coil atomizer with 3 exchangeable modules so you can choose the air restriction according to your preference.

DigiFlavor ETNA MTL RDAThe box does come with these 3 different airflow modules. Digiflavor announced that there are more options available, but you have to purchase them separately. Each module can be set up right under the coil. All of them are quite restrictive so you can get a nice MTL vape (0.8 mm and 1.2 mm). The modules are very easy to switch with a just a simple hex screw visible from the outside.

Despite its small size (22 mm in diameter and 18 mm in length), the Digiflavor Etna has a very spacious deck. Installing the coil is a piece of cake, but don’t expect a big juice well. It’s just a 22 mm RDA! According to the creators of the Digiflavor ETNA, this is an RDAspecially designed for salt nicotinetobacco, and fruity e-liquid. If you are after big clouds, this is not for you. But is possibly a dream come true for many flavor chasers.

Unboxing the ETNA RDA

Digiflavor included many extra goodies in the packaging. Always very much appreciated! The box comes with the ETNA RDA3 changeable modules, a standard 510 and a bottom feeder pin. Plus cotton6 coilsa lip protector, and a hex screw

How much does the Digiflavor ETNA RDA cost?

Now you must be thinking. Well… this has got to be expensive. Not at all! The ETNA RDAis available on Ave40 vape shops for $25.42.

In my opinion, that’s a very good deal for what you get. Digiflavor launched the ETNA RDA in 6 different colors: gunmetalgoldblue, rainbowstainless steel, and black. All the ETNA tanks are decorated with a volcano logo too.

Final Thoughts About the ETNA RDA

All in all, I think this can be one of the best options for mouth-to-lung vapers willing to save some money in pre-made coils. Most existing tanks for MTL are either for pre-made coils or they don’t perform too well. If you fancy intense flavor and small clouds, then the Digiflavor ETNA RDA can be a very good option for you.

Hope you found this article on the ETNA RDA useful. If you have any question about this RDA, please hit me in the comment section and I will try to answer it as soon as possible.
