We are so stoked to see local companies producing RDAs! It’s so awesome for our community. First there was the Hazematic Revolt and now there is the Koiler AFC RDA both manufactured right here in Toronto! The Koiler AFC is definitely for the Cloudchasers out there, this puppy sure chucks the clouds!
The design is nice and simple and with over 15 colour combinations you can really put your own stamp on one (pics: we missed that on of the colours is a high polish stainless, looks very similar to the brushed). The Anodized finish looks like it will stand up to some serious abuse.
The Chuffs have one of the best rims we have ever tried, awesome mouth feel. The removable screens really do help, we had a 22 ga 0.22 Ohm build and not an ounce of spit back. And the airflow is silky smooth, really surprising for what looks like pretty slim air holes. There is a problem here though, the air holes are very high up on the center ring, we get that it looks dope for the logo but not so much for flavour. Because of the location you need to get your coils up very high to be aligned with the air holes, creating a lot of dead space in the chamber and really long wicks (which may cause issues as you drop your Ohms). This may be what Cloudchasers like, we aren’t sure, Flavour is more our thing. We dropped down to a 24 ga 0.4 Ohm build, the temp of the vape is nice, and vapor production if very good, but sorry not much flavour.
There is a lot of copper inside this one, which leads to great conductivity, but we wonder about how good it is for us chain vapors having it mix with our juice. All that copper heats up fast and we noticed our Mod getting pretty toasty too. This may be more of a Competition Atty that you aren’t planning on vaping all day, again we don’t have a lot of experience with Cloudchasing.
Building on this RDA is pretty easy thanks to very large post holes and lots of space. We aren’t fans of flathead screws, we found them hard to torque with thicker gage wire and did experience a bit of centre post spin when doing so (it was easy enough to loosen the 510 and realign things). The centre post is pretty big (overhang) and we did notice some concern on clearing your negative leads, so build with care. The screws didn’t seem to back off and we didn’t have any clipping issues. The outer post holes are a little sharp so give them a little rub with a screwdriver to smooth them out.
Overall the concept of a multiple colour way Atty is a great idea and the design aesthetic is nice and clean. We just wish there was a little more concern towards Flavour. This may be just what the Cloudchaser ordered but for us the flavour just isn’t there. With that awesome mouth feel, dope looks, and silky smooth airflow we sure wish it was.
What about a white centre ring too fellas? We dig the monochromatic look of the stainless and the black, white would be dope.
