I’ve been vaping on the Uwell D2 RTA for a couple of months now and I have to say that it is by far the best RTA I’ve used so far. It is super easy to build on with a dual coil building deck and open juice ports. I find that a simple kanthal or nichrome dual coil build gives me excellent flavor and beautiful clouds. Having a double glass build with top airflow creates a tighter draw, but rewards you with a better pull and, I kid you not, absolutely no leaking… I loved the Crown I, but this has become my go-to tank for the foreseeable future. Any thoughts? submitted by /u/bacdeusa [link] [comments]

Full disclosure: this item was sent to me by Heaven Gifts for the purpose of review In the world of micro RDAs, the Derringer has been king for a long time. Recently, we got the Oumier Wasp Nano and its valiant attempt to dethrone it. Today, we take a look at another competitor. Ever since last year’s Serpent Mini took the vaping market by storm, Wotofo has continued to release products under the Serpent name. After a 25mm version and an RDTA, we’re now getting the Serpent BF, a 22mm squonking RDA with side airflow. Is it worthy of carrying the Serpent name? Unboxing In the box, we get the RDA, a little manual, some cotton, a silicon block for single coiling, a 510 drip tip adapter, a 510 drip tip, a Goon drip tip, some pre-made coils, a multitool like the one you find in Geekvape’s packaging (with allen keys on two ends and a Philips head on the third) and some spare parts. A very complete package we get here. Would’ve preferred to see a regular 510 in there as well for those people who also wanna occasionally use it on a regular mod. Outside At 22mm in diameter and 18mm tall (minus 510 pin and drip tip), this is a tiny dripper. Working our way down from the top, we start at the drip tip. The default drip tip is Goon style but you also get an ultem 510 adapter with a 510 drip tip pre-installed. On the barrel, we have some kind of engraving or laser etching, not sure. It’s a U with a wave through it, not sure what that’s about. It also gives us our two cyclops airflow holes, adjustable by rotating the topcap. There’s also an offset for single coiling in the barrel, in addition to the silicon plug you get. On the bottom, we have a screw to keep in the positive post and a gold-plated 510 pin and it’s a bottomfeeder. Wotofo says it’s suitable for regular mods as well but that is nothing but filthy lies. I can see right through the pin. Wotofo, why must you lie to me so? Deck The inside makes me weep a little. And it’s all to do with the design. If you’ve owned an RDA before, you roughly know what the pieces are. In the Serpent BF’s case, it’s a bit different. And by that I mean that I get the feeling someone at Wotofo was a bit tipsy. I’m not a fan of slagging off like this but this design is a bit of a mess. The first oddity is that the top cap is not part of the barrel, it’s a separate piece like you would find on a Limitless. In practice, that means it’s hard to check your build, since there’s basically nothing to grip the topcap on to pull it off. The second oddity is how the dripper itself is constructed. The barrel and the plating underneath the deck are one piece. The deck and everything surrounding it, including the 510 pin, is another piece. I’ll get into the practical side of things later because oh boy. Inside we have sweet and short deck. Two blocks with two post holes each, screws coming down and keeping your coils in place. It’s a pretty common deck so installing coils in here isn’t too much of a challenge, regardless of experience with rebuilding. What’s curious is that there’s a lot of wasted space in the posts. No, a dripper like this doesn’t need massive post holes but if you look at the posts themselves versus how big the holes are, they easily could’ve been a bit bigger, if only for the purpose of having more room for inserting your leads. Building and testing As always, it’s time to start swearing incoherently for a moment. Like I said, the construction is a bit unorthodox and some of the sharper people among you may have already guessed at the consequences. In order to do anything build related, you have to push against the 510 pin to pop out the whole deck. It’s incredibly annoying both ways, especially if you have juice on it since you’ll get it all over your hands and fingers. Getting it back in might especially lead to some swearing and garbled grunting as you try to get the damn thing back in place. It’s a frustrating design. I get why they did this (to minimize leaking and such under your RDA) but in practice, it’s just annoyance after annoyance. You make a mess of your fingers if you want to rewick the deck and trying to push it back in is about as smooth as sandpaper butter. Little tip I picked up from Tony at Vapor Trail: if you push the deck in and it turns out to be slightly misaligned, stick the fatter allen wrench on the multitool in one of the post holes and you can easily rotate the deck into place. What’s also an annoying issue is that getting the top cap off is fidgety. You can’t really grip it (since the dripper is so tiny) so you kind of have to wiggle it off. It’s not very smooth. You could argue that since it’s a squonking RDA, you don’t really need to, you just squeeze to fill it up again. I say that if I wanna check my build and all, it shouldn’t be a hassle to do so. Also, the airflow is whistly, but only slightly so. That is all, figured I’d end this on a lesser note. Right, onto the positive side of things. The screwdown deck makes installing coils nice and simple. Simple round wire and claptons with a 3mm ID will sit in here with little issue. Any bigger and you’re gonna run the risk of shorting against the top cap. You’re very limited with deck space but hey, it’s a 22mm micro dripper. Kind of comes with the territory, you know what you’re getting into. Flavor is really good. I popped one of the pre-made claptons in there and at around 35-40 watts, it’s a very enjoyable vape. What helps this a bit is the fact that installing your coils at a natural height puts them a little bit above the airflow. You don’t have to put effort into raising them, they just naturally sit right. And there’s the tiny chamber, the small distance to your mouth…seriously. Flavor chasers who squonk, you’ll love this. Flavor chasers who don’t, consider picking this up with a squonker. You won’t regret the performance of this baby. In single coil mode via plug, it’s a fairly restricted draw. Still comfortable to DL but quite restricted. If you also throw in the offset on the barrel, it’s a teensy bit more restricted but not by much. In dual coil, nice and smooth. Comfortable, smooth lung hit all the way. On the opposite end of the spectrum, because of such a tiny chamber and an already somewhat small airflow, you can mouth-to-lung on this. Throw a higher resistance build in, put the topcap on so you block all the airflow and you get a nice, tight draw. Yes, it does both MTL and a pretty decent DL. Either way, cloud production is ass but is anyone expecting this thing to chuck massive clouds? I don’t think so, this thing is for flavor and boy, does it perform! Pros and cons Pros: Another mainstream squonking RDA Building is easy Flavor is just right Takes Goon and 510 drip tips Can do MTL as well. Cons: Squonking only, no regular 510 pin Design is awkward Topcap is difficult to take off Airflow whistles a bit Conclusion Ya done good, Wotofo. Despite the horrible things I said earlier, ya done good. Sure, I would’ve greatly preferred you packaged a plain 510 or some kind of stopper to turn it into a plain 510 so you wouldn’t be forced to squonk on this. Yeah, the design is…peculiar. While I do admire your attempts at fixing some common RDA problems, the practicality of it fails a little. But I find myself forgiving these issues because it does so many things right. The deck is simple and easy to work with. I can put a single coil build in here for a restrictive hit or go with a dual coil for a nice and smooth lung hit. But most importantly, it packs a punch of flavor that we all love. It’s a classic case of the pros outweighing the cons, simple as that. Does this dethrone the Derringer as king of tiny RDAs? Is this better than the Wasp Nano? No idea and it doesn’t matter. The Wotofo Serpent BF is a cracking good piece of kit for the low wattage vaper. If you already have a squonker or two sitting around, you’ll enjoy this. If (like me) you’ve been eyeing squonking for some time, get a squonking box and one of these. If you look at the list of cons up there and think to yourself ‘I can deal with that’, I can almost guarantee you won’t regret it. For 29.99 USD, I think it’s a very reasonable price. You get a damn good RDA with lots of extras and great performance. It’s a perfect atomizer to get your feet wet in the world of squonking. submitted by /u/dutchah [link] [comments]
For this week’s “Watch This,” catch up on John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight segment from April 2017, which focuses on cannabis (or, as he refers to it, “basically catnip for people”). In a condensed under-17 minute segment, he navigates through marijuana’s original ban that arose from racial stereotypes, Nixon’s disdain for the substance (and, bizarrely, for Jewish people), how federal law clashes with state laws, and the restrictions behind researching its benefits or effects, all while freaking the eff out of any stoned viewers named Greg.
If you’re unfamiliar with the struggles legal cannabis businesses face from a banking and taxation standpoint, or the horrible consequences that can befall legal medical marijuana patients (getting fired from their jobs, having their children taken away, problems accessing their medicine), this segment offers a fantastic summary that will have you laughing between bouts of outrage (especially you, Greg).
Is this new or just deja-vu?SMOK is nothing if not prolific. It can be confusing keeping track of products and coil types, as the company tends to take an initial design and then produce variations on that theme. A good example of that would be the TVF8 family of tanks. There are at present three distinct versions of the TFV8 tank, with 25 different coil types! The OSUB family is no different. What sets the OSUB series apart from other SMOK products is their C-frame construction, clicky firing bar, and small but bright OLED display.
The OSUB 80W Baby kit feels very much like the OSUB Plus kit revisited. The 80W kit comes paired with the 3 mL TFV8 Baby tank, and boasts the same good looks of its OSUB cousins. The main difference is size. Gone is the internal battery, and with that, a bulk of the width. As its name suggests, the OSUB 80W Baby kit powers up to 80 watts on a single 18650 battery. I’ve seen the kit on pre-sale for under $50. Let’s road-test the OSUB 80W Baby kit and see how it fares…
Disclaimer: We received the OSUB 80W Baby Kit from SMOK for the purpose of this review.
One of our samples arrived with a hardware defect that impacted on the voltage range. We have been informed by SMOK that this is a beta version and retail models will be checked carefully before sale.

The bundled TFV8 Baby tank has been packaged this time with two V8 Baby-Q2 Core (0.4 ohm dual) coils. These are the same coils that were paired with the Brit Beast tank in the OSUB Plus kit, and are labelled as operating between 40 – 80 watts. It’s a testament to how versatile the TFV8 Baby tank is – whack a different coil in there and it performs consistently, whether at 50 W, 80 W, or as an RBA. A spare glass tank is conspicuously missing, however.
The OSUB 80W mod feels very comfortable for me as a left-hander, since the fire button can be finger activated while the bulk of it rests in my palm. In this position, the OLED display and up/down buttons also feel most logically arranged. Bear in mind your up/down buttons will also reverse if you flip the menu screen (through the settings option).
The OSUB mod is made from zinc alloy, and has a matte, fingerprint-resistant finish. The whole construction is free from button rattle. The firing bar is highly responsive; about 2/3 of the bar is clickable, from the top down. The battery compartment door is activated by a small latch, and springs open. The battery polarity placement is marked at the far end of the battery compartment. Unfortunately, there’s no marking on the inside of the door, but you can’t miss the large positive marking when inserting an 18650 battery. Overall, the battery compartment is secure and won’t swing open unexpectedly. However, the grooved latch makes it far easier to open than the push-and-slide construction of the Skyhook RDTA or G320 kits.
The only thing missing are dedicated battery vent holes. Perhaps the latch inset holder offers a small window of sorts, but otherwise, I see no way for the 18650 to vent.
Menu functionalitySMOK manages to squeeze their functional menu interface into precious little real estate here. The device powers on and can be locked with five clicks.
Watts are adjusted in .1 or 1 watt increments, either by clicking the firing bar once (.1), or holding it (1 watt). In TC mode, Celsius can be adjusted in 5 °C increments, Fahrenheit in steps of 10 °F.
Three clicks takes you to the different menu options: Mode, Puff, Adjust Ohm, TCR, Setting, and Power.
Under Mode you can toggle between wattage and temperature control mode, selecting from five different draw strengths and wire types (Ni200/Ti/SS).
You can also round-robin between Celsius and Fahrenheit in TC mode.
The Puff menu displays your total number of inhales, has a limiting function, and allows you to reset the counter.
Under Adjust Ohm you can alter the exact resistance of your coil to three decimal places.
TCR allows you to finetune the resistance of your TC wire type.
Under Setting you can enter stealth mode, change your screen timeout interval, adjust contrast, and flip the menu orientation.
To power off the device either go to Power through the menu, or click the firing bar 5 times to lock the device, and then hold down the bar for 5 seconds.
New tanks are automatically detected by the system, and need to be confirmed before you vape on them.
How it performsThe TFV8 Baby Beast has already been reviewed in depth by Bill. I am quite happy with the performance of the Q2 coils. I personally enjoyed them around 65 W, keeping the airflow wide open. As is typical with the Baby Beast tank, it produces bundles of vapor and flavor, and feels like a decent all-round marriage of the two. I also know that I could use the TFV8 Baby tank with the (not included) RBA core, and it would function perfectly within the 80 W range of this device. As a last thought, the Baby Beast is a thirsty tank, even at lower wattages, so it would make sense to carry some e-liquid around with you.
On to the OSUB mod, then. There is very little that sets the OSUB 80W mod apart from the OSUB One and OSUB Plus kits. It brings the skillset of the OSUB Plus to the table in a smaller form factor. As a mod, it’s suitable for any 22 mm tank or rebuildable without overhang.
You might not find a single 18650 adequate for ADV at higher wattages. But at least replacements are easy to carry around (in a case, please!) I’m not aware of any firmware updates currently available, but as and when they are, the micro USB slot next to the OLED screen is side-mounted for easy access.
LikesGreat build qualityIf you’re left-handed the OSUB family is made just for youClicky firing barSMOK menu functionality (adjusting ohm resistance and puff counter)Comes bundled with one of the most versatile tanks on the marketDislikesUI orientation is odd for a majority right-handed marketFeels more like a rehash than any real innovationNo venting holes?VerdictBasically, what we have here is the OSUB Plus kit with the width shaved off. The C-frame construction will be a hit for some people. The lack of an internal battery may be the deciding factor for others. But I feel that your choice to get the OSUB 80W Baby kit – or not – will come down to aesthetics. Because in technical terms, the ground is already well worn.
SMOK produces so many variations on a given theme that it can be confusing separating the “must-have” purchase from the superfluous. We’ve seen the OSUB family of devices already. And what the 80W version does, it does pretty well. However, there are no surprises here. This feels like consolidation of a proven product line rather than any real innovation in the field.
Personally, I think there are already plenty of devices – many of them from SMOK – that offer the same skillset as the OSUB 80W Baby kit. Recommended – but only if you are desperate for a left-handed, single-18650 80 watt box mod kit!
