The Aeolus is the current grand daddy of the top airflow control RDAs, and with good reason. A clean design, perfect Airflow Restriction, and Great Flavour make it an RDA worth checking out, and until now your only option was the Authentic.
There is something about the aesthetic that gives this RDA a high end look and feel, the included removable heatsink also gives it a nice industrial flair.
So enough about how good it looks, it also performs very well. This is our second top Airflow RDA we have looked at (check out our Rogue Review) and this one shows merit in the design and its benefits.
The Flavour is very clean, almost crisp, you will taste all the Flavour notes in your juices. The Airflow is perfectly balanced, just the right amount of restriction, making it a very pleasant vape. We also noticed the Coils seemed to hold up longer to caking, they stayed clean for almost a full day of heavy use.
Building is a piece of cake, lots of room, just make sure to get the coils up and out towards where your airflow will sit for optimal flavour/vapor production. The top cap easily removes for great dripping and monitoring the condition of your build. The heatsink definitely does its job, this is one of the coolest surface temps on an RDA we have tried. We also haven’t experienced a single leak issue of any kind. The top cap does need the occasional rinse to keep things clean, but thats par for the course with most attys.
So to sum things up, this is an Atty you need in your collection! The Flavour is very good and the design is dope. There is however one drawback, and that is the temperature of the vape. It seems that top airflow design trades off some temp for that crisp flavour, making this one on the cooler side. So if you like a really warm vape this one may bother you a bit, but we strongly suggest you try it so that you can experience the Flavour qualities this design offers. The overall rating would be higher if the temp was too.
Try the clone, if you love it, buy the authentic.
