OBS Engine Sub & Engine Sub Mini: Best Cloud Chasing Tank of 2017?


I did a review of the OBS Engine Tank last year and I was completely blown away by it. It had to be one of my favorite tanks of 2016.

From the performance to the construction, everything about the OBS Engine was top notch. It was a cloud chasing, non-heating tank that had one of the smoothest draws I’ve ever experienced from a sub-ohm tank.

Apparently a lot of other vape reviewers felt the same way.

This is why I got excited when I was contacted by Heaven Gifts to review the 2017 versions which are the Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini.


OBS Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini Review

The two tanks are identical to each other and uses the same coil head, a disposable 0.3 ohm atomizer which is HUGE!

The disposable atomizers is what makes it different from the older Engine tank, which used a 2 post dual/quad rebuildable coil deck.

The only differences between the Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini are the diameter and juice capacity: the Engine Sub has a 25 mm diameter and holds 5 ml of juice, while the Mini version is 23 mm in diameter and has a 3.5 ml capacity. The height of the 2 tanks is the same at 54.5 mm.

What’s in the Box?

Since it uses disposable coils, you won’t be needing any fancy tools or screws with this tank. It comes with an extra stock coil which is also at 0.3 ohms, an extra glass tank, extra o-rings and a user manual.

I’m glad OBS went the disposable atomizer route since I personally am getting a little tired of rebuildable atomizers. These new disposable coils that are coming out perform quite well when it comes to vapor and flavor production. It also saves me time and effort compared to using an RTA.

As for the construction of the tank, top grade as usual. I noticed the base of these new Engine Sub tanks are a lot beefier than the base on the previous OBS Engine tank.

OBS did a great job with sticking to what works. I love how the airflow holes are on top, and adjusting them are easy. Filling this tank with e-juice is a breeze thanks to the lift up sleeve which is located right under the air holes.

Because of the airflow holes and juice hole being located on top, this tank is a great purchase for vapers who are looking for a true leak-proof tank.

STRONG POINTS OF THE OBS ENGINE SUB AND engine SUB MINI

Aside from it being easy to use and leak-proof, the best thing about the Engine Sub is the vapor production. This tank really puts out big, dense clouds!

This tank is meant for vapers who like to vape at high wattage and enjoy that warm, dense vape.

Any cons?

As much as I loved the vapor production of this tank, I would have to say the biggest disappointment for me was the the flavor, especially for the Engine Sub tank.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a bad tasting vape at all. The only problem is the break-in period for the coil on the Engine Sub takes a little while, however it doesn’t take as long for the Mini version.

I don’t know if I didn’t saturate the coils enough, but I didn’t get that clean e-juice taste until after a few hits.

For a tank that produces so much vapor, I was expecting the flavor to be just as intense. The flavor just doesn’t match the vapor production.

Another thing is the draw. Like I said earlier, the previous OBS Engine tank had one of the smoothest draws I’ve ever experienced. These newer versions weren’t as smooth in my opinion.

Who is this tank for?

The OBS Engine Sub and Engine Sub Mini tanks are definitely for the cloud chasers, and since its so easy to use, I would even recommend them to the newbie vapors as an entry-level cloud chasing tank.

High Class Vape Co: Premium E-Juice At An Affordable Price?


High Class Vape Co’s Premium Line (left to right): Guilty Pleasure, Taste of the Orient, and Members Only

Big shout out to Bill of High Class Vape Co for contacting me to do this review. He came across my blog and offered me to do a review on the High Class Vape Co premium line. I had a great time vaping on them and I’ve finally come up with a review for other vapers out there who are looking for an affordable premium e-juice online. I will also include a discount code for all of you out there at the end of this post.

In case you were wondering…

I was offered these juices for free to review, and although I got it for free, this will not affect my opinion on these juices. I know it’s human nature for people to give a favorable opinion on something they got for free to review, but I’m most definitely sure you the reader as well as the people of High Class Vape Co would much more appreciate an honest review of this e-juice from me.

It’s always tricky to do reviews on e-juice because the first thing people want to know is if it tastes good. And like I always say, taste is subjective. What tastes good for me might not taste good for you, and vice versa. I love vaping berry flavors, but I hate banana, yet some people love vaping on banana flavors. It all depends on your preference.

So what I really try to do in these reviews is give a more descriptive outline rather than a opinionated one for the readers to get a better idea of what they are getting in case they decide to purchase.

What I like to do is focus more on relative things like price, nicotine levels, vapor production, and others. At the end of each review, I say whether I liked the juice or not. Just my opinion.

With that being said, let’s talk about the common factors about these High Class Vape Co e-juices and then I’ll go into a more descriptive review of each juice later in this post.

Affordable U.S. made e-juice

This company is based in my home state of California, San Diego to be exact. As for their prices, High Class Vape Co offers good prices for their premium line which they sell at $29.99 for 60 ml, and their 15 ml bottles for only $10, a pretty good deal for premium e-juice (all glass bottles).

They also offer a sample pack of three 15 ml bottles for only $22.99 which you can pick each flavor for. This makes much more sense than buying a 15 ml bottle alone since you’ll be saving a lot more money.

And if that price is still a little too steep for your vape pockets then you can also try out their budget line which is 120 ml of e-juice for only $18! I’ll also be doing a review on their budget line in these upcoming posts.

All of their juices are a 70/30 VG/PG blend and come in 0 mg, 3 mg, 6 mg, and 12 mg levels of nicotine. While we’re on the subject of nicotine, I found the nicotine to be a little harsh when I first vaped it, but got used to it and started enjoying it as I progressed.

And that’s the thing, I usually vape a high VG e-juice 80/20 blend at 3 mg, but I wasn’t getting that much of a satisfying vape so I decided to bump my nicotine level up to 6. The higher PG level on this juice might have caused me to get a more harsher nicotine taste than what I’m normally used to.

But for those of you who love that “kick in the lungs” type of vape, especially for those of you have just got off of smoking, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this juice.

As for the vapor production, it does put out a lot of clouds. I did notice that the vapor clouds weren’t as robust and dense as the clouds you would get off of a higher VG blend of e-juice, which might be a good thing sometimes. There were many times while I was vaping on high VG juice and driving with the windows up when the clouds would get in the way of my vision. So in this situation, yes a higher PG blend would be better.

Now that I’ve got all that out of the way, let’s get into each e-juice and give you my opinion of each one.


Guilty Pleasure – A Crisp, Refreshing Fruity Vape

Guilty Pleasure – pears, honeysuckle, and other subtle fruit notes.

For this review, I used my Conqueror RTA Mini which is a great flavor chasing RTA which I also did a review for in the past. If you love flavor tanks, please check out my review which I linked above.

According to their website, Guilty Pleasure is their best seller. It’s a floral-fruity blend of pears, honeysuckle and other fruit notes. The thing with fruit blends for some e-juices is even though they are a combination of fruits, there’s always that one fruit flavor that stands out among the rest.

With Guilty Pleasure, I didn’t taste that. The blend of pears, honeysuckle and the other fruits were blended together really well that it created this whole new flavor of it’s own. It wasn’t like “Oh, this tastes like pears” or “This tastes like honeysuckle.” I could taste the different fruit hints, but none of them overpowered each other. It really was a true blend of flavors.

Another thing I noticed with GP was the taste was very subtle. It wasn’t a strong, “hit you in the face” type of flavor that we’ve all gotten accustomed to when with premium lines. The taste for me was a bit muted.

All in all I got a crisp, refreshing fruity-floral vape from Guilty Pleasure. It’s a great mix of fruit blends, but I would have preferred a stronger flavor.


Taste of the Orient – Something Different

Taste of the Orient – cucumber, sweet honeysuckle, and juicy green honeydew melon

Let me start off by saying Taste of the Orient is something I’ve never tasted before. It’s flavor description is cucumber, honeysuckle, and honeydew.

I actually love honeydew, both when eating and vaping. However, I didn’t get a strong taste of honeydew. It was actually quite similar to Guilty Pleasure, but had sort of a tangy aftertaste to it which I think was due to the cucumber flavoring. Again, subtle notes blended altogether.

As for the Taste of the Orient, I would say it’s a decent e-juice. It wasn’t bad at all, but it’s not something I wouldn’t have high on my list when it comes to good e-juice.


Members Only – Creamy Tart Vape with a hint of Strawberry

Members Only – strawberry, crumbly sugar cookie, and sweet ice cream

And the final one on the list is Members Only, a combination of ice cream, sugar cookie and strawberry, 3 flavors I really love. Just like the other two previous juices, the notes were a bit subtle but well blended and not overpowering.

Members Only really stood out to me, I really like this flavor. I would have preferred for the strawberry taste to be more pronounced, but all the other notes blend very well with each other. I finished more off of this bottle than the other two to be honest.

Guilty Pleasure may be the best seller on their website, but Members Only is the true winner for me. Based on my personal taste and preference, I would go with this e-juice.


Again I would like to thank Bill for offering me these great e-juices and I had a great time sampling them.

To my readers, I will also be reviewing their budget line which sells for $18 for 120 ml of e-juice real soon, so stay tuned for that.

Product Review: Wotofo Conqueror Mini RTA from HeavenGifts.com


The Wotofo Conqueror Mini: A mini tank that’s big on flavor!

You don’t see a lot of mini tanks that are dedicated to flavor, which is why Wotofo’s Conqueror Mini RTA is a special tank in it’s own lane. It gives you the nice compact feel of a mini RTA, but the flavor it produces is on par with many of the flavor-dedicated RTA’s out on the market right now.

I was very fortunate to get the chance to review the Conqueror Mini and was caught by surprise at the quality of flavor it produces for such a small tank.

The Wotofo Conqueror Mini RTA: A Mini Tank That’s Big on Flavor

I wasn’t really expecting that much from this tank at first to be honest. Knowing from experience though, Wotofo is a brand that puts out good vaping products and they did not disappoint me this time. The Conqueror Mini actually surprised me with the quality of flavor I was getting from this tank.

I’ve been using the Conqueror Mini for a few days now and I love how clean and crisp the flavor is right off the bat. Many new tanks have a break in period before you get that smooth, crisp flavor, not the Conqueror Mini! The flavor is very comparable to ceramic coil head tanks like the Estoc Tank Mega.

The Conqueror Mini RTA comes with an extra glass tank, twisted wire coils, a coil straightener, o-rings, grub nuts and a mini screwdriver

The Conqueror Mini comes with the things you need to get started. The coils it came with marked “Competition Coils” were well-made and perform very well. It also came with an unusual tool that’s supposed to hold your coils in place as you screw them down onto the deck.

Top juice holes are a bit thin but tilting them while filling it helps catch all your e-juice

The coil holder tool is needed because of it’s unusual deck. The coil arrangement for the the Conqueror Mini is standing up where you insert coils onto the base of the deck. From what I researched, it’s the same deck you find on the original Conqueror RTA. I have gotten so used to the 2-post deck so it was a bit challenging for me at first, but everything was swell and dandy once I got the coils in place.

The Conqueror Mini deck uses a standing dual coil build while the wide bore Delrin drip tip is replaceable with any standard sized drip tip

This RTA has three parts when disassembled: The base/deck, the glass tank which also houses the chimney, and the top cap which you unscrew to fill the Conqueror Mini with e-juice.

I was having some problems at first separating the deck from the chimney because the chimney was screwed on to the base. After some attempts of getting the chimney secured onto the glass tank part, I was able to get the base off with the deck showing. Just make sure you have the chimney screwed on to the glass tank part before you unscrew the base.

As for the top cap, it was a lot easier for me to unscrew it from the glass tank. The drip tip is Delrin and fits any standard sized drip tip you might want to swap out with it.

Great Mini Tank That Handles Twisted Low Resistance Coils

A bit tricky to build on since the Conqueror’s deck is different from the almost standard Velocity style 2 post deck

Now the stock coils that come with the Conqueror Mini are pretty thick, it was reading 0.2 on my mod. You will need to use the tool it comes with to hold the coils in place while you tighten the screws which are located at the sides of the base.

The tricky thing for me was knowing where to cut the coils before placing it on the deck. Cut it too long and it will hit the top of the chimney, cut it too short and it will hit the bottom of the deck. I kind of measured it at first placing the coils on the outside of the deck to show how high I wanted the coils to stand before cutting them. It worked for me!

This small tank puts out big flavor!

As for placing the cotton, I had to make sure the cotton was cut right where the juice holes were. I left a little bit of excess cotton and just tucked it in where it was covering the juice holes. I knew if I cut it too short, the cotton wouldn’t catch the juice coming in and would cause the tank to flood. I know it sounds complicated but it all comes down to right measurement of where you cut you coils and cotton.

Is the Conqueror Mini RTA For you?

I would say buy this tank if you are familiar with coil building just because of the coil placement. Building on this deck is not was not the easiest to work with for me, but the end result was a great tasting vape that I really enjoyed.

Also, this isn’t much of a cloud chasing mini tank, I mean it puts out, but not as much as you would expect from a true sub-ohm tank such as the EXO RTA which I did a review on in my last post. Now that tank really puts out!

Final verdict

I say the Conqueror Mini is a great mini tank for the flavor chasers. I’m really impressed at how the taste of my e-juice came out using this tank. So yeah, if you’re the type of vapor who loves mini tanks and is all about the flavor and is familiar with building coils, the Conqueror Mini would be a great pick up.

Just to let my readers know, I did get this product for free from HeavenGifts.com for review. All they ask is you check out their site if the Conqueror Mini RTA is something you’d be interested in buying.

I am placing a link below which will bring you directly to the product page, and if you like my blog it would be a great help if you used that link in case you were planning on picking this up.

Thanks again and stay tuned for more product reviews here on Mr. Long Drag!
