The Dvarw MTL Styled RTA (2ml)
There is no screw like the Kayfun to fill without taking the deck out, there is no AFC... you just get different sized inserts for the deck to reduce/increase airflow, and the included drip tip is bad, like really bad.
On the plus side, it actually came from FastTech not smelling like machine oil. I still gave it a thorough cleaning, and checked all the o-rings first. None were damaged which was great.
I built a 2mm inner diameter coil out of 27g kanthal, 6 wraps, and it came out to 0.78 ohm
The issue I have is there is no top-fill, and no removable fill screw. You have to remove the deck and fill the tank from the bottom.
Bottom filling this tank is easy enough, but no matter how you do it, you won't ever get the tank *full*. This wouldn't be a big deal with the 5ml version, but when you only have 2ml to work with, losing out on even a little bit can lead to more refills.
BTW, I think it looks great on my LPG Styled Mech. Definitely a good stealth vape.
Having to unscrew the deck to fill the tank every time sucks especially since it only holds 2ml, but since its MTL, 2ml actually lasts a pretty good while.
Final Thoughts and Links
Pros: Tiny/short/sleek look. Solid 10/10 MTL vape. Easy to wick, no weird wick length requirements like the old Kayfun.
If you're an old school vaper who is used to building with no post holes and you don't mind disassembling the tank every time you want to fill it, this is a solid MTL vape.
Cons: No top-fill, or screw-fill on the bottom. No post holes. Lots of o-rings. No AFC. Poor drip tip.
If you haven't dealt with this style of post before, building can be frustrating, but the wicking is extremely easy.
It's hard for me to recommend this to anyone that isn't an experienced builder due to the posts and fill methods. But the vape is so satisfying, it's hard to not recommend it to anyone looking to get into MTL vaping.
Dvarw MTL Styled RTA 2ML - $12.95 - FastTech also has a 3.5ml and 5ml version in the drop downs. There are also PEI replacement parts for just about everything.
LPG V2 Styled 18530 Mech Mod - $10.86 (TEMPORARILY SOLD OUT) - I know someone will ask, this is the mech that I use. It's sold out and I think most in the drop downs are discontinued or also sold out.
Mini Teflon 510 Drip Tip - $1.39 - This isn't the drip tip I used in the review, I pulled that one off the ST Haku I got from FastTech, but this mini teflon is derringer height, and smooth as butter. The Haku one pictured is just a few mm shorter than this though. I used this mini teflon drip tip on my Derringers, and on my Magma.
