    @Resistance , It’s a great tube mod, very reasonable battery life, 510 so slap any rta/rda on there and battery life was good, even at 45w on the commercial coil. I know the battery isn’t that big, only 2300 mAh, but for me with the other mods in rotation it worked great. Virtually the same as a single bat mod. Charging time was moderately same as with 25R batteries.

    I had an Ijust as well, was great, but I think I’ll stay with this one if I get to choose. It just has the look that I like, and it ticks the boxes for me. Feels like a solid mod and very well finished. I’ve only had it for 2 weeks, so cannot say too much for durability yet but I’ve had no problems so far, just enjoyment.

    It’s quite a tall tube, 101.6 mm by 24.7 mm, but I don’t think the Ijust is really shorter, only advantage is that the S has a 3000 mAh capacity. Main advantage with the Twister is you can adjust wattage to suit you, as far as I can remember the Ijust is determined by your coil resistance.

    Hope this helps a bit, but imho I don’t think you will be throwing your cash in the water if you go the Twister route.

    Well explained answer.
    Basically everything I get kind of breaks or damages. I remember the ijust being quite tough especially when it accidentally slipped out of your top pocket from a roof. But your answer makes good sense and it will surely help with my choice.

    About the only weakness I can see with an incident like this is that the wattage control ring sits on the bottom of the mod, so depending on how it lands......... may be a weak spot but can’t say. And I’m not going to do a drop test:D firstly enjoying it too much, and secondly fire brigade charges these days to take people of the roof.

    Obviously one advantage as already pointed out is the wattage is adjustable with the Twister. I actually like the ijust S and Eleaf are underestimated when it comes to their coils but Freemax along with Horizontech in my opinion manufacture the best stock coils especially for the wattage range best suited for these devices. The ijust S comes with a good tank, the Twister comes with an excellent tank.

    Whats in the Box.JPG
    • 1 x PodStick Mod.
    • 2 x Pods.
    • 1 x 1.3 Ohm CCELL Pod (pre-installed).
    • 1 x 0.6 Ohm Mesh Pod (Sealed Package).
    • 1 x E-Juice Bottle.

    The colors available in the range:
    Podstick Colours.jpg

    Impressions and Opinion.
    • The PodStick is extremely light in weight and easy to use.
    • Its profile ensures that it sits very comfortably in the hand, and the firing button is easily accessible and comfortable to use.
    • Battery life was surprisingly good for such a small battery and is combined with a very short charging cycle.
    • Easy, 3 click selection of the desired power level allows for some customization of your desired vaping experience.
    • The 6 color schemes provides you with a choice to suit your individual taste and preference.
    • The fact that this this system uses disposable Pods makes it extremely convenient. It is advised by the manufacturer that the Pods be replaced after 5 refills.
    • You have the option of a quite tight MTL draw with the 1.3 Ohm CCELL Pod, which is specifically optimized for this, or a satisfying DLdraw on the 0.6 Ohm Meshed Pod.
    • Refill through a top fill depressible plunger type refill port. Once lifted the plunger rises up and effectively seals the juice in the Pod.
    • Refill bottle included for ease of use, and for the action of depressing while filling its size is perfect for one handed use to achieve this.
    The Verdict.
    Overall, my impression of the PodStick is that it is a great little device. It’s ease of use and easy setting options make this a great kit for beginners, but it will also fit perfectly for more experienced vapers wanting convenience in a small and lightweight package.

    A sincere thank you to @Vaporesso for supplying the VAPORESSO Podstick Kit for review and for giving me the opportunity to do a review on it.

    upload_2019-11-20_19-49-36.png

    Impressions and Opinion.
    • The Vinci X is a spectacular device from an aesthetics and quality point of view.
    • The device is not the lightest Pod system around, but the versatility of the replaceable 18650 battery really gives it an edge when it comes to usage and battery life.
    • The 70 W maximum power is something that will appeal to a broader range of users.
    • Easy access to battery port on the bottom of device with a screw in battery cover.
    • The polarity indicator is in silver on the inside of the battery door, so this makes it easier to see.
    • In device battery charging through a USB port at the front of the device.
    • The device is quite large in profile, but still a comfortable size for daily carry and comfortable use.
    • The PCGT pods used are the same as with the initial Vinci ModPod, so crossover use is possible.
    • It utilizes the same Pull and Push (PnP) system for coil replacement and is fully compatible with the other coils in the PnP range.
    • Will be a game changer once RBA is released, from a customization point of view as well as cost.
    • Great flavor from two new coils, with exceptional wicking ability, so preferably stay in the recommended wattage range for the specific coil.
    • Ability to change airflow by turning Pod 180 degrees, slightly tighter draw.
    • Easy accessible Side Fill port with Silicone Sealing strip ensures ease of use and no leaking.
    • 8 Additional Safety Features, Overtime Protection, Short Circuit Protection, Overcharge Protection, Max Power Protection, Output Over-current Protection, Over Discharge Protection, Over-Temperature Protection, Battery Reverse Polarity.
    • Clock however has to be reset after each battery change if the in device charging option is not used.
    The Verdict.
    Overall, my impression of the Vinci X is that it is in a class of its own. It is really great looking, extremely easy to set up and use, sits nicely in the hand, is heavier than some other devices, but not uncomfortably so, performs absolutely great, and didn’t leave me wanting at any stage. Due to the AI chip you have numerous protections and suggestions, and the adjustable wattage will ensure you have a great vaping experience. On a lighter note I sadly only have one hand free most of the day now, the Vinci X uses the other one most of the time. It is definitely a keeper and will join me on a daily basis going forward.

    A sincere thank you to VOOPOO for supplying the VOOPOO Vinci X ModPod Kit for review and for giving me the opportunity to do a review on it.

    Not at all, sorry about the poor quality, old tablet camera, but hope you can see. If not, I’ll try to do some in daylight.

    FreeMax GEMM 80W starter kit with GEMM disposable tank
    and
    FreeMax Twister 80W starter kit with Fireluke 2 tank
    Comparison
    Disclaimer – The views expressed in this comparison are based on my own experiences while testing the equipment for reviewing purposes. The products were supplied free of charge by FreeMax for review purposes and no remuneration or other incentive is received to do this review.

    After the initial reviews I decided to do a comparison between the two kits to highlight some of the similarities and differences and to give a snap shot of the vaping experience with both. I also wanted to test the durability and performance of the supplied tank and coil over a longer term to look at flavor, durability and value for money as additional information to use as an indicative guideline for new vapers interested in the product.

    FreeMax GEMM 80W starter kit with GEMM disposable tank overview.
    upload_2019-12-4_16-19-28.png

    General Features
    • This GEMM Mod Kit is a Tube style mod with a built in battery and utilizes disposable tanks.
    • The kit is good looking and the contrast of the main body color with the stainless steel 510 connection ring makes it very pleasing on the eye. The overall finish is of a high standard, it looks and feels solid and durable and point to a high quality manufactured product.
    • The Mod has all of the expected safety features ensuring a worry free vaping experience.
    • The 5 color schemes it comes in will give you a decent choice as you can go for a safe black or white, or live on the wild side with Blue, Rainbow or Purple. The tanks are available colors to match the mod, but is also available in a clear option for those that would prefer it.
    • The mod has a normal 510 connection meaning other tanks or RDA's, RTA's and RDTA's can be utilized as well.
    Power, Tank and Coils
    • The built in 2900mAh battery’s life is very good on soft, being the lowest power setting in conjunction with the G2 0.20 Ohm mesh coil tank as supplied, but be prepared to charge again if this is the only mod you use for the day. Better battery life may be achieved with the G2 0.5 Ohm mesh coil tank. Battery power indicator is colored light on power button, Green – 100% - 65%, Yellow – 65% - 30%, Red – 30% - 0%.
    • 3 Preset power settings using 3 clicks of power button to adjust power settings between: soft (20W - 50W), medium (25W - 70W), and hard (30W - 80W), based on the coil resistance of the choice of tank.
    • The fact that this system uses disposable tanks makes it hassle free to use, and the flavor overall was excellent. Both tanks tested gave a very pleasant vape experience and airflow is quiet. This makes it a very easy to use device for someone just starting out on their vaping journey.
    • Although with a nearly fully closed airflow control you still get a very loose draw on this tank, it can be utilized for a very loose MTL draw or DL experience.
    • The new diamond mesh coil system gave excellent flavor and the tea fiber and organic cotton mix gave superb wicking, even when chain vaping.
    • The top fill system makes keeping it topped up very easy, and the silicone plug sealed very well and no leaks from anywhere were experienced. The refill slot is quite narrow though, but not a big problem.
    • The GEMM tank comes with a fixed built in 510 drip-tip.
    VS

    FreeMax Twister 80W starter kit with Fireluke 2 tank overview.
    upload_2019-12-4_17-9-1.png

    General Features
    • This Mod Kit is a Tube style mod with a built in battery and utilizes disposable coils in the supplied reusable tank.
    • The Twister kit certainly catches your eye and is something totally different visually. The mod, finish and tank looks durable and overall finish points to a high quality manufactured product.
    • The Mod has all of the expected safety features ensuring a worry free vaping experience.
    • The 13 color schemes makes it appealing to a wide audience. The Graffiti color designs are Black, Space Black, Orange Red, Green and Blue, and the solid color schemes being Purple, Green, Blue, Golden, SS, Rainbow and Black, ensuring that you can find one that suits your personality and style.
    • The mod has a normal 510 connection meaning other tanks or RDA's, RTA's and RDTA's can be utilized as well.
    Power, Tank and Coils
    • The built in 2300mAh battery’s life is reasonable with the TX 2 0.2 Ohm coil as supplied at 40W, but better battery life may be achieved with the NX2 0.5 Ohm mesh coil at lower wattage. Battery power indicator is colored light on power button, going from Green to Red as battery is used, and lasts approximately 150 puffs as per FreeMax specifications, I think I got a whole lot more though, but be prepared to charge again if this is the only mod you are going to use for the day.
    • You can adjust the Wattage starting from 5W to 80W in increments of 5W to suit your preference and flavor profile via a base adjustment ring.
    • The replaceable coils mean you can play around and find / customize the vaping experience to suit your preference to a great extent while enjoying the best of both worlds, ease of use as well as good flavor. Airflow is moderately noisy, but not overly so, but it is however quite a thirsty tank with the coils supplied.
    • Even with nearly fully closed airflow control you still get a very loose draw with plenty of air, imho this tank is more focused on giving a good DL experience.
    • The new diamond mesh coil system gave excellent flavor and the tea fiber and organic cotton mix gave superb wicking, even when chain vaping.
    • The slide open top fill system makes refilling very easy due to its size, and it sealed very well. No leaks were experienced.
    • The Fireluke 2 tank comes with a removable and replaceable 810 drip-tip.
    Comparison Summary of experience and extended use.
    Long Term Test of Tank and Coil
    I decided after the formal reviews published on 28 October 2019 to combine the comparison with a bit of long term testing of both coils and tanks as there is limited information available especially for individuals starting out with regards to the durability and flavor production of these, and will be doing this on all commercial coils and tanks going forward. I re-installed the TX2 0.20 Ohm mesh coil that came pre-installed when the Twister kit was received, and chose the G2 0.20 Ohm mesh tank with the GEMM to give new vapers some more information on what to expect should they invest in one of these products. Both options produce great flavor with the Twister G2 mesh coil in conjunction with the Fireluke 2 tank maybe winning by a small margin in this department.

    I added both set-ups to my daily rotation, but note that I used them in conjunction with about 2 or 3 other mods minimum during this time. I however tried to make sure to vape at least two tanks worth of juice daily on both. On the GEMM G2 disposable tank and the Twister TX2 disposable coil chosen a slight and gradual drop off in flavor could only be detected from about the middle of November, without making the vaping experience unpleasant or tasteless, with flavor lasting virtually right up to the end. The GEMM G2 tank only started to give a burny taste towards the end of November, with the Twister TX2 coils flavor dropping suddenly at about the same time. This result was quite surprising to me and in my opinion points to quality manufactured coils that gives good value for money, as I got a good month of use out of both, without compromising my experience or enjoyment overall. I however think that most people will change the tank or coils at the time that they start to detect a drop in flavor production or when changing profiles on juices, to ensure the maximum enjoyment of the vape experience. Using other coil and tank options/combinations may produce different results. It is also definitely worthwhile noting that during all of this time absolutely no leaking through the airflow or refilling ports was experienced with either options .
    (Please note that the opinion expressed is based on my experience and no guarantees can be implied or given for future use by others, and the target was to push both options to the maximum of their ability for myself, but can be used as a guideline overall to get an idea of performance.)

    Overall Opinion
    FreeMax have produced two excellent Kits that is extremely easy to operate, making either an excellent option for those starting their vaping journey, but not excluding more experienced vapers looking for a easy to use back-up without having to compromise on flavor, while both options are not overloaded with frills and features that is almost never used. This approach offers a choice that should be able to satisfy their needs and produce excellent flavor in a package that will not let them down. The coil or tank choices will also allow you to choose an option as near as possible to your preferred vaping style. The built in batteries have their limitations as expected but perform adequate for normal daily use, but may need a recharge during the day based on your personal usage and vaping preferences.

    I found both kits to be very easy and comfortable to use on a daily basis as they share some common features. In the end personal style and preference will in all probability determine the option that an individual chooses as their performance is so near to each other, while they are completely different. They are imho made for a fast and easy grab and go to hit the road with but will also came in handy while just relaxing.

    (A sincere thank you to FreeMax for supplying the FreeMax Gemm and Twister Kits for review and comparison and for giving me the opportunity to do a review on them. (All pictures used in this review is held under Copyright by FreeMax.)
