From the makers of the Marquis comes another ground breaking RDA. With a 2 post design, a threaded AFC system that has versatile airflow settings, and flavour for days this atty just can’t be ignored!
At first glance the Velocity looks like a Cloudchasing monster, it’s big, it’s tall, and has tons of airflow. But when the airflow is closed down quite a bit it becomes a Flavour monster too! Anything designed by these two veterans of the industry is always worth checking out.
The design is like nothing else out there. it has a large deck with two posts sitting on a gigantic juice well. Both this RDA and the Hobo V3 benefit from this two post design. It makes for easy dripping and easy centred coil building. The 2 holes per post on the Velocity take things up a notch on ease of use, making it one of the easiest decks to build we have seen. The screws on the sides of the posts can get a little awkward however when align and tightening you coils, you get used to it. The solid posts like the Hobo also help with stopping the screws from clipping your wire.
The top cap/center ring is a two piece design with a threaded outer ring that makes for super precise AFC adjustments. There are two large air holes that lock down alignment with your coils thanks to an ingenious notch system. There are also 6 indirect air holes that sit just above your coils, these are more for the Cloudchaser or if you want to cool down your vape a little, they will mute flavour when open. This is a very flavourful atty when closed down (the large air holes open 1/2 to 1/3), it can take a lot of juice (20-25 drops) but it will go through it quick. Expect to almost double your daily juice consumption with this puppy. Also with the restricted AFC for flavour we noticed quite a bit of condensation pooling in the airflow slot around the centre ring (make sure to give her a clean a couple times a day).
There is something big to mention on this one. Like a lot of the new attys that are coming out, they all seem to be built for pretty low Ohm builds. This atty really doesn’t shine till you get under 0.2 ohms. This may be a big concern for some of you, don’t buy this atty if you are not comfortable or have the proper battery safety knowledge and equipment to handle these type of builds. But if you are comfortable and are into Clapton coils this may be an ultimate atty for you. With fused dual Claptons coming in at 0.2 Ohm set at 64 Watts (basically stay under 4Vs) you get an awesomely warm and super flavourful vape.
The Clone. It’s okay. Great to try this design before investing the $115 USD on the authentic. But its got issues with the O-ring resistances (we swapped out one of the deck rings which helped) and the grub screw quality is not so good (they can strip easily). This is such a great design and if you are a super low ohm vaper, you should just pop for the authentic right away, you won’t regret it!
It’s an amazing atty. The designs these guys (Cisco & Dino) dream up are just unbelievable. We can’t wait to see what they come up with next! You need to give the Velocity a go, you really don’t have an option. If you are like us and always searching for the next best thing well this atty is definitely a contender for the best atty of 2015.
