The Goblin Mini is the v2 of the very popular but very complicated and finicky UD Goblin. Like a lot of companies lately it is more of a complete redesign vs an update. It’s great to see all the innovation and growth going on! The Goblin Mini is a super flavourful little RTA and we mean little!
The size and design are the first things that hit you when you get your hands on one of these puppies. It is basically the size of your average RDA but it’s an RTA! It really is an incredible accomplishment on UD’s part. A lot of it is thanks to an innovative AFC control that sits on the very bottom of the atty, this allows for a major reduction to the overall height. We all know less height always leads to more flavour!
The Juice Capacity is pretty good for it’s size (3mL). The fact that this atty is almost all tank makes it really easy to monitor you juice levels, which is great. It’s almost like getting an HD view of you juice. A tank should last a least a 3-4 hours between fills. A little gripe is the bottom fill port, we are cool with them if it means less leaking issues (top fill still hasn’t be done right), but the flat-head screw is just plain annoying. Be very careful with that tiny little bugger when you are filling, we have almost dropped it every time we fill. Also there are some sharp little edges you deal with by the AFC control on the bottom when disassembling the tank, be careful not to over torque the tank, it will only lead to pain the next time you want to open it.
Flavour! Damn it’s so good… So Dense, Thick and Yummy! This Atty will reward you if you treat her right. And that’s the thing… just like the previous version this one has some finicky issues too, they are just a lot easier to deal with. Airflow is much improved and there is a lot of it! We like it about half open and have found the flavour to me much better when using the 510 adapter with your own tip. The glass drip tip is sexy but the bore is just a little too wide for optimal flavour production. Throw a Third Eye Tip on this one with the adapter, it looks super dope!
Building on this one is tight, don’t bother trying to fit anything bigger than 2.5mm coil, it’s just not worth the chance of a short. Make sure to keep the coils in tight to the posts and right on top of the Airflow holes. We found that this Atty doesn’t perform as well with super low builds, it’s much happier around 0.5-0.8 Ohms. That’s one of the issues we mentioned, this Atty likes to perform well above 4V even past 5V depending on your build. It sounds crazy but that’s just how it is, we don’t understand why. The Build we dig is a 24ga 2.5mm 0.5Ohm dual run between 42-50W (depending on the juice), so thats 4.4-4.9V roughly. It’s pretty crazy for an RTA, good news is the vapor doesn’t get crazy warm at these Voltages. Another issue, it still has those microscopic philips screw heads that make you hands hurt with the amount of pressure you need to secure your wire leads. But all in all it’s not the craziest deck to build on, just take your time and treat your coils right so you don’t need to redo them a lot.
Wicking issues that plagued the previous Goblin are gone! You no longer need to spend hours trimming you wicks. Cut them off at the top of the deck, clean them up a little, throw the base chimney ring on them dry, juice it a little and you are good to go. Thanks to the much larger juice channels we have yet to experience anything close to a dry hit. Just aim to have most of your wick sitting on the deck as opposed to in the channels and you will be golden.
The Goblin Mini will quickly become one of your go to Attys, it’s super compact, has great flavour, and looks great. This is a must own, go grab one right now! We promise you won’t regret it in the slightest!
