Hi All, Anthony Vapes back here with my review of Vandy Vape Kylin 2 RTA. Please see bottom for disclaimers and links. Note this marked as a sample version. Introduction: The Vandy Vape Kylin 2 RTA is the latest RTA from very popular vape company Vandy Vape. They don’t really need much of an introduction these days as everyone knows who they are but their most popular products this year are probably the pulse squonk mods but also did a good job with the bonza, phobia 2, kylin mini, and revolver atomizers this year. The Kylin 2 RTA is the follow up to their original kylin RTA that came out last year which was one of my favorite ones for 2017 so lets see if this one can live up to the name? It’s a 24mm at the base but does bulge out to 26 mm and even 30mm with the bubble glass and is a dual coil DTL RTA with a postless style deck and 3ml standard capacity and 5ml max capacity with the included bubble tank. It’s available in 7 colors Matte Black, Matte Grey, Rainbow, Gunmetal, Gold, Blue, and SS. Looking around online I see it runs around 30 USD with lots of sites to by from. Elementvape has them in the US for 29.95 all colors in stock Manufacturer's Specs 24mm Diameter 30mm Diameter At Widest Point 3mL Standard Capacity 5mL Maximum Juice Capacity - Extension Glass Superior Stainless Steel Construction Pyrex Glass Reinforcement Innovative Postless, Quad Terminal Build Deck Intuitive Curved Build Deck Design Terminal Opening Size - 2mm by 1.75mm Diagonally Secured via Gold-Plated Hex Screws Single or Double Coil Configurations Adjustable Juice Flow Control Dual External Adjustable Airflow - 12mm by 2.5mm Each Eight Multi-Holes Internal Air Slots - 1 mm Each Six Angled Internal Air Slots - 4mm by 1.5mm Each Beveled Internal Airflow Design Convenient Slide-to-Open Top-Fill Design 810 Resin Wide Bore Drip Tip 810 Delrin Wide Bore Drip Tip 17.5mm Wide Delrin Wide Bore Drip Tip 510 Drip Tip Adapter Gold-Plated 510 Contact Pin Color Options - Stainless, Matte Black, Matte Grey, Rainbow, Gold, Blue Included in box: 1 Kylin RTA II 1 Resin Drip Tip 1 Delrin Drip Tip 1 Spare 3mL Pyrex Glass 1 Accessory Bag 1 Coil Lead Guide 1 User Manual Pictures Album: album Initial Impressions When I first got this RTA it seemed right up my alley as a dual coil DTL RTA with a postless deck not to mention i really did like the original kylin RTA as well, not the first first version but when they made some fixes to it with the multicolor ones. I like that it comes with a bubble glass 5ml capacity as well since the standard 3ml is a bit small. Overall though a pretty basic dual coil RTA which there haven’t been a ton of this year and things are trending more towards smaller setups these days. Build Deck and Wicking (pics above) Let’s talk about the build deck now. It’s a pretty standard postless deck which is a personal favorite of mine but which also means you have to precut your leads. The good thing is Vandy vape includes a coil lead measuring tool as well and while lots of time i find them mislabeled, vandy vape got it right marking it at 5mm leads. This makes it really easy to get your coils built and ready to install. You also can install the coils 1 at a time as each lead gets its own hole and combined with the included tool makes it really easy to build on even for beginners. They use good quality hex grub screws as well so no issues there and another favorite of mine. The post screws come in from the side so flat wire leads won’t be twisted when installing and it works great for flat and round wire coils with no issues. I’d recommend a 3-3.5mm ID coil but you can fit up to a 4mm as well. Overall nothing groundbreaking but just a well done postless deck and the included tool makes it easy to build on for even new builders. Wicking on this one is super easy. It wicks pretty well so you don’t need to go super thin on your wicks. Just make sure not to overstuff them and drop them right in the cutouts made for them and leave a little bit of room. Really simple and easy to wick. Just don’t overstuff it or you’ll get vapor lock. It’s a slightly raised deck which we see of a lot these days which helps with the wicking as far as not having leaks. Performance Performance wise, I used it as a dual coil RTA as intended. You could run a single fat coil as well but personally i was never a fan of running single coils in a RTA designed for dual coils as they never seem to work as well as a good single coil RTA. I ran 4 builds in it. 3 fancy builds at 3mm-4mm ID and one simple round build at 3.5mm ID. It’s DTL for sure but not super airy. Performance was really good for fancy wire builds as the deck can take a pretty large size coil and that’s where it shines as there is a lot of air, however with the round wire build there was a noticeable drop in flavor and other RTAs do round wire better. It’s best with 3-3.5mm ID fancy builds and in that situation has provided some of the best flavor i’ve gotten this year from a RTA. It’s easily in my top 2 along with the lotus RTA.
