IGO-L rebuildable Atomizer
Okay, so this was my first rebuildable atomizer. This thing has a lot of problems though, and I wouldn’t really recommend it. Why? Well the air hole is just way too small – and with a lot of drippers you can’t adjust the airflow unless you drill it out.
That’s what I had to do. I had to actually drill the thing out with a 1/16 drill bit, and this thing is pure metal, so that’s not really too easy. Other than that It’s solid and it’s really easy to build coils on. All I do really for this dripper is wrap about 4 wraps of 30awg kanthal a-1 around some 3mm silica wick and I’m done, it takes 5 minutes max for me to build a coil for it and I aim for around 1 ohm resistance with the drilled out hole.
Though I haven’t used it and don’t own it, I would recommend getting the Trident atomizer from fasttech over this, it looks like it’s much more adjustable and you can run more types of coil setups on it.
Building coils and such is a whole nother topic, so I’m not going to talk about that here, but I’ll probably list a general guide to building coils that applies to all rebuildable dripping atomizers in the future.
Interested in some e-liquid that costs $8 for 100 ml? Well Fasttech has some great tasting e-liquid if you’re into fruity flavors that is only $8. It literally does have a sweet mixed fruit type flavor.
I was quite amazed, but the quality is up there with the more expensive stuff like LIQUA. Unfortunately the nicotine level in the “High” version seems to be only 16mg/ml. Now this is a guess, because I really don’t know to be honest. It’s not well documented online, but it seems like the consensus is that: low is 6mg, medium 12mg, high 16mg.
Keep it in mind when you place another order, if you don’t like it, it was only $8, right?
This is a pretty popular clone on Fasttech, and there’s a good reason for that. It’s built very solid. I’m mostly just going to go over the negatives about it, that I didn’t really realize before buying.
1. The threads are a little loose, but they’re pretty nice overall.
2. The locking ring is not reverse threaded, this is annoying when you first get it, though most people get used to it.
3. The adjustable firing pin can be very loose when you use shorter 18650 batteries. It would be nice if it was a little bit longer. So depending on what batteries you use, you might not have this issue.
4. Certain batteries that don’t have insulation on the bottom will auto fire. This is easily fixed by shrinking some 18650 insulation on the battery.
Other than those 4 issues, it’s a very nice mod that has a very short throw firing button. It really feels solid.
The below video was done by twisted, it gives a good overview. I would make my own video but unfortunately I don’t have a good enough camera to pick up the details. (It would be really fuzzy etc.) I’m probably going to pick up a camera soon.
Things have changed drastically since my last foray into electronic cigarettes. Oh boy have they changed.
I was used to an overpriced world, a world where a metal tube set you back $200 or more. This is just to get a “real” e-cigarette experience, mind you. I don’t think the small batteries that are shaped like cigarettes are really effective at all, and I don’ t think they’re worth your time. Though if you want to give it a shot just for the fun of it, blu or similar isn’t really that bad, but it’s not really where you want to be. If you kind of like blu then you should upgrade.
Welcome to the world of overseas commerce. That’s right, I’m talking about ordering directly from China. I will be reviewing every single piece of equipment I receive from China in posts that will soon follow. For right now, I’m just going to go over what to expect from ordering from china.
Over the past month or two I’ve placed about 3 orders on Fasttech. Most (2/3) arrived about 15 days after ordering. The one item I ordered that said “Ships in 10 Days” arrived in 1 month from ordering. The good news? I got everything, and I had no issues. I also paid about 50% of what it costs buying locally online. You can get a 50ml bottle of Dekang e-liquid for about $5 on Fasttech compared to $15 or more from US vendors, especially if you buy it from a brick and mortar store.
I’ll admit, I like to save money and I’m a bit of a cheapskate, but who doesn’t like saving money and not getting inferior products? Well I’ll be here to help you, just follow my “E-Cigarette” tagged posts in the future or right now if you’re reading this at a later date.
All quality products will be reviewed. Ordering guides will be setup for various levels of e-cigarette users. I’m going to get a full blown guide up for you, so you won’t have to struggle like me picking out the quality vs low quality items you can get from china.
