    It's essentially a thin Cubis tank (19mm/2ml, like an ST Nano) as an attached head on a 1500 mAh stick batt.

    Comes with the 0.6 coil, I don't know what else is available for the Cubis. RBA maybe?
    And it damn sure won't leak while upright. :D


    No VV/VW and isn't even near to my wheelhouse.
    And yet... there's something ludicrously desirable about it. :p

    For $20, I may have to get one someday. ;)

    eGo AIO Starter Kit is truly an awesome device with some very good features. You can purchase it from Artisan Vapor for just $26.99.

    I think it's still a week or so before they hit vendor shelves.
    There're a couple "over there" with review units this past week.
    Early impressions... so far, so good.

    About time for an update actually. :p

    Cool.
    The couple three on ECF who have them are pleased so far.
    Various options with the ability to pop off the cap of the 0.6 to make it airier.

    I want it to test MTL-ing again, so I'll probably leave them stock.

    So I ordered one Thurs/Fri.. :p
    Grabbed a Cubis RBA head as well, though I don't know yet if it'll fit.
    Should have them Monday.

    Yeah think ill try it stock first. Didn't even know you could mod it. Might try that if I don't like the mtl. Thanks for the heads up.

    Yeah... there's a nippled cap in the top end of the coil head that restricts the airflow.
    If you can get a grip on it... it pops off.

    One of the videos I watched stated that it will fit, but of course you won't be able to test the coil or anything. To do it like you typically would you'd need to by a Cubis tank so you can actually test the ohms, dry burn, etc.

    Looking forward to reviews from the couple people here who have ordered them so far. I purchased a couple as well to give to older friends whose eGo stuff wasn't quite cutting it. The price was too good to pass up at "wholesale" quantities from efun. I won't be able to open the package until mid April, but I'll report back what they think (maybe I'll even try one out myself lol :) ).

    I stopped in a store for juice today and ending up picking one of these up to replace my wife's NE Box. Pretty cool device. Was much smaller than it looked on the videos and the light up feature is actually pretty cool. Airflow is way too tight for my liking, takes a bit of work to get much vapor and flavor is only so-so. Need try that coil mod, I'll give it a look when she needs a refill.

    Got mine today and I'm impressed!

    Stock coil was tight airflow but expected and still a decent vape but with . 05 coil the airflow is very nice.

    .5 coil needs good long soak before firing though as I burnt first one didn't know you could pop cap off stock coil. Will try it quick and report back results

    Pop cap off stock coil and great!

    With stock drip tip airflow is very nice and with extra tip ever so slightly better but not huge difference.

    Will try brand new stock coil with cap removed later or in morning and see how it wicks on first fill vs 0.5 head

    Good to know. If that opens up the airflow enough I might get one of these for myself. Be a great little stealthy device.

    With 0.5 you can get full lung hit but does seem as taste is not burnt but slightly toasted where as the stock coil with cap removed seems perfect.

    I also popped screen off 0.5 and airflow even more slightly open.

    Going to toss stock head back in and keep vaping that to compare taste.With cap off stock though you can get goof airy semi lung hit vs cap on which is strictly mouth to lung IMO

    Take care with the included coils...

    It could be that I was "testing" it too hard, it could be the miniscule juice holes in the bottom... but it took me one day to fry the first 0.6 head. :(

    I ordered the Cubis RBA with it, so I popped that in instead of the second 0.6.
    It comes pre-built with a larger blanket wrapped vertical and a different, higher placement of juice hole (so don't run it empty) but it's a nice vape.
    Fingers crossed that it holds up.

    Naturally... I can't find my DMM, so I don't even know what it ohms out to. :oops:

    Better fix that before I rebuild it. :p

    That's coils are my concern too, device itself is fantastic so hopefully we will see a better coil released that wicks better

    I did order a pack of the 1.5 ohm Claptons last night.
    No idea what they'll do in this thing, but they're cheap so... what the hell.

    So in y'alls experience, popping that cap off doesn't create any issues with leaking/gurgling? All it does is improve the airflow and in turn the vaping experience you're getting from the device?

    When you are talking about the cap, is it the piece that is recessed at the top of the coil with the little rubber ring on it?

    Yeah that entire little plate covering the wick, get something very thin inbetween wall of coil head and the plate and pop it out

    Thanks, I'll give it a try. Definitely going to pick one of these up for myself. I used the wife's yesterday with some higher Nic juice and it was just great. Couldn't use it as my all the time setup, but it will be handy for some occasions.

    Don't know if you guys realize that there is an air control on the top. Spinning the top (not pushing and turning like to open) - just turning, opens the air flow. There is no stop or markings but you can adjust while puffing. I get plenty of airflow with mine wide open.

    Btw, I love mine. I travel and it's definitely compact. I'm also on job sites - don't have to worry about breaking a tank. Also, I really like the top fill tank with no "stem valve" that I have to worry about getting juice in - just dump and go. I'm MTL and this gives a clean, consistent draw every time.

    Week 2 of my initial coil and still going strong (I change juices about twice a day)

    Easily a great value at $18.00.

    Yes, aware of the ring. It's just so much less airflow than what I usually vape it takes some getting use to. Still think it is a pretty cool and definitely recommend it for anyone thinking about one.

    Yes, the AFC adjust has markings. The indents on the ring and the DT base.
    I got the tip of a sharpie into mine or I wouldn't be able to see them without my readers on. :p

    Mine's the Gray/Black... not sure what I'd do with an all Black. :D
    -

    The vid I saw removing the coil cap used needlenose to grip the nipple, but there are two small slots for airflow that might work to get something thin in there and pop it out.
    -

    But even with airflow locked down (it's a very sensitive adjustment to get min air) I was still catching myself lung hitting the 0.6. MTL recuperation this wont be, I'm afraid. :(

    The RBA is even airier, but I can keep it down to cig levels... somewhat.
    Gonna take it on a drive to town tomorrow and see how much better driving is without a weather system in the bloody car. :mad:

    :p

    I picked one up today and am very impressed so far. Of course, I have only been using it for a couple of hours now but I really like it. It is simple to use and gives a decent vape. I like the simplicity of it.

    I'm still enjoying the AIO I won from Heaven Gifts. I was wondering if anyone has tried using the eGrip rba 510 adapter for dry burning and/or testing ohms on the Cubis rba. I read somewhere online that this can be used for that. It's cheap to buy (2.99) and would be worth it if it really does work.

    Can't answer your question, sorry. But was wondering how long you've been using your AIO?

    They are very good. A cheap starter kit pricewise but very well build device. They are unregulated so battery does have a bit of fall off as battery power goes down. They do hit hard, and very stealthy. I have been using mine for four days and will eventually give mine to wife for a stealth vape when out and about. I also plan on getting another one for myself when they come out. Buy one you certainly will not be disappointed. I have not used the .6 coils it comes with. I have only used my .5 Cubis coil. Next will pop in my Cubis rebuildable. Hope this helps. CHEERS!

    Just went and tried for you and yes the RBA does fit in the egrip adapter. The cover does not screw all the way down, but that is no biggy. Thanks for posting this. Just to bad the stock coils do not work in the egrip adapter. CHEERS!

    Thanks! I'll pick one up along with the rba. It was said that the bevel edge, or something to that effect, of the rba or cap of adapter prevents a near perfect fit but works regardless. I'm too new to coil building to go and plug in something not tested so this will be great.

    I do not see much of a difference between the RBA and just rebuilding the .5 stock coils. Accually I find the stock .5's are easier. Just learn to recoil a vertical Atlantis/Triton coil and than almost every other vertical coil is built the exact same other than size and ohms. Utube is your friend! CHEERS!

    I just received the one that I won. Its pretty cool with the light up and different led color operations. Its really easy to use and to operate. Typical ego style. The child safety on it is interesting and it does work. Like those pill bottles work. The air control is on top and tank fills easily just make sure you don't over fill it. This is a good mtl style. Like a nautilus mini tank. Wouldn't recommend for dl vapors. Mine came fully charged I don't know if they all do but mine looked like it was opened and pre-charged for me by the givers of the contest. It gives a decent flavor and the cloud is on par with a nautilus mini. Maybe a little more. Coil concept is pretty cool. Coil screws onto the top of atty and rests right on top of battery. No other controls but fire and vape. Comes with a black tip or a clear one. Only thing I don't like about it is the child proof top. as you can see in pic this space will always be like that. But it isn't a deal breaker just might be a concern for some due to aesthetics and pocket lint lol...

    Had a chance to use them yet? Be curious to know what you think.

    I went with the .5 coils, but would be curious to know what other coils people have tried (besides the rebuildable).

    I haven't yet. It gets very little use so I'm still using the Triton RBA.
    But it does get used, glad I got the little bugger.
    Won't be too much longer though I'm sure... another week or so.

    I was looking through a separate order and found I had bought a 2nd RBA but like you, I'm curious about the high res Claptons, so I'll try one of them next.

    For all the complaints on restricted airflow and dry hits, I'm asking if you guys know this is a tootle puffer for beginners? It's not for hauling on or cloud chucking.

    I'm also wondering what performance you were expecting for a $20 kit?

    Complaints? I think most of us have been pleasantly surprised by its' performance.

    Though I admit... toasting that first coil was probably my enthusiasm. :p

    But you should re-examine your own preconceptions about these new stick mods.
    This one, based around the Cubis, and SMOK's line-up based around the TFV4 and the couple others I can't name ATM... are certainly NOT "beginner only".

    They're an attempt to get ahead of the small tank EU regs, among other things.
    Like convenience, simplicity, pocket-ability.

    No... it's not a cloud machine, or a mech replacement.
    But I'm actually impressed by what it does for $20.

    I have it and have not been a big fan. Runs to hot and makes most of the liquids I have tried still have a harsh burn.

    Okay, so I bit the bullet and bought one Wednesday night.

    I primed the coil. Filled to the line. Then i charged it to full, taking about 20 minutes.

    Some gurgling for the first few hits that I attribute to too much priming.

    This was not a dedicated vape as I was still pulling on my other flavors.

    Thoughts? No issues with burnt hits for casual pulls. I can see where it would heat up if pulling too hard or too often. 2ml capacity is also sufficient for casual, light use and maintains the compact size.

    Size is about the same as a 30ml skinny unicorn bottle.

    Overall, it's fantastic for a $20 unit. The bang for the buck is unrivaled by anything else I've tried

    I'm thinking I might just pick one of these up at my local shop on Friday as a second device, back-up for my Vapeberri. Sounds like a pretty nice little unit and will be great for sampling new flavors of juice. Hopefully, they have the grey/black in stock.

    I would recommend just going for the metal one. In my experience, the coating on the colored ones wears off pretty quickly.
