I will start with the usual, which is that I got this send over for review by healthcabin, which will not influence my opinion of this device.
This is another collaboration between a vendor and a vaper. I’ve never heard of this one but since I stopped watching Youtube reviewers a long time ago that’s no surprise.
The man goes by the name of Vape Geek Q8 and I will let you know what I think of him, or rather his product, in this piece.
As usual the box is where we normally start.
All right then…
What’s there to say, no cutouts!

There are 5 different colours to be had
As the name implies this is a 2 in 1 tank
There is a large pin in the RDA which screws in and out
And a small pin in the RDTA, which has to be pushed out
The deck is post-less and very easy to build on.
You can have a dual or single coil in there, whatever floats your boat. I went with a single coil because that’s what I like best.
I used one of the coils that came in the box
The legs were long enough to have an extra wrap on either side, which left them at just the right length.
I find that when the legs are just a little shorter than the measuring tool indicates, you have the perfect placement of the coil.
This got me to .48 ohms, which is just about how I like it.
I left the cotton rather short and it works just fine.
You can fill the RDTA through the side fill port.
The little rubbery thing you see is what they call a duckbill valve.
It works like this
Talking about rubbery things, I was a little confused about the two pieces that were included for single coil configurations.
I assumed they were for blocking off one of the airflows but there was no way you could insert them in front of the airflow and since the single coil is smack in the middle it didn’t make any sense either.
Stupid me, they are wicking port blocks. Having a single coil will leave you with rather less cotton than with a dual coil, which might create a problem so here it is.
The airflow holes have a down angle of 45 degrees, which puts the airflow right under the coils.
There are notches in the top cap for the perfect placement of the airflow.
The flavour is pretty good on this thing.
There’s also a vapour condensate barrier in the top cap to prevent condensation to enter the mouth.
Don’t ask me how that works, it just does.
Now I’m getting to the part that I personally like best.
See, ever since I got into squonking, which is not so very long, I’ve been thinking about how nice it would be to be able to squonk into a tank.
I don’t know about you, but whenever I’m right in the middle of something, my tank decides it needs a refill and I just don’t have the time or energy for it right there and then.
At first I thought it would be too good to be true, but I did notice that there was also a little squonk pin included for the RDTA.
After dutifully filling the RDTA through the fill port the first time I decided to give it a shot and put the squonk pin in.
I gave the bottle a good squeeze and was expecting the liquid to come pouring out from under the tank.
It went straight into the tank!
I’m as happy as a pig with wings.
Needless to say I haven’t used the fill port anymore. This is utter heaven for the lazy among us.
If you want to check if your coil is not too dirty, just pull off the top cap and have a look.
You can change the cotton and have a dry burn with everything in place.
This is my dream come true.
I didn’t notice any difference between the RDA and RDTA when it comes to flavour and ended up solely using the RDTA.
The pin is protruding nicely so no problem on a hybrid.
So what do I think?
I think they have a winner here.
Very well thought out, the squonking into the RDTA actually brings something new to the table. AFAIK this hasn’t been done before. Of course I could be wrong.
The flavour is very good, no leaking anywhere. I would definitely replace this if it would break.
I haven’t been able to put it down.
Building is a breeze, what more can I say.
Are there any cons?
If I want to bitch I could say that the logo feels a little sharpish, the box hasn’t got any cut outs and it’s a PITA to take out the extra drip tip.
This doesn’t take away anything from the performance of this baby so…. NO, I haven’t found any.
So all I’m left with is a big thank you to Cortana from healthcabin, and a big thank you to myself for picking this from the list.
You can find the Faris here, code JOSE will get you 10% off.
Thank you all for reading and see you next time
