I was given the Bellus RTA by GearBest, the same time I got the eVic VTC Mini for review. After using it for a few months, I have gotten familiar with it enough for me to give a pretty accurate description about it. I have been using this RTA with a single coil build of 26 gauge Kanthal reading at .5 ohms. Right off the bat, what I can say separates the Bellus from the other RTA’s is its tight draw.
I like airy draws but I didn’t mind how restricted the airflow felt for me. After using it for a while, I realized that the tight airflow enhanced the flavor of the e-juice a lot. I tried using it slightly closed, and although it was tight the flavor was fantastic!
The Bellus has both single and dual coil options. That dot you see on the deck pictured above, that’s where the “block” goes. A plastic block is placed there for the single coil build option. The two strong posts on their are easy to work with.
The atomizer sits below the tank so it is constantly juiced, no dry hits. Notice the big juice holes in the picture above. For me, the strong point of the Bellus is its amazing flavor, the inner chimney and drip tip has a swirl engraving inside which is supposed to make the vapor twirl upwards as you take a vape. Not sure if this is why my juice tastes “alive” when I vape using the Bellus.
Another win for the Bellus is its easy filling system. All you have to do is unscrew the top cap and insert your dropper in one of the holes. Okay, I tried demonstrating it in the picture below, but you do not want to get juice INSIDE of that center chimney. It was hard holding the tanks, dropper, and camera all at the same time, okay?!
As much as I love the Bellus, my biggest complaint about it is its prone to leaking. You can’t fill the tank with juice while its positioned straight up without it leaking. I learned that you have to tilt it a certain way, sort of like the Lemo. The air hole in front of the coil has to be facing up. This usually fixes the problem.
The airflow adjustment works pretty well, but when its wide open it doesn’t feel as airy as your usual RTA. So would I recommend the Bellus to anyone? Absolutely! For the price alone, its currently priced at around $22. It’s an RTA that has amazing flavor and handles dry hits well.
I actually encourage everyone to get their hands on any vape product they feel like getting, while they can. If anti-vape politicians have their way, we may never get to buy these type of vaping instruments ever again!
