Product Review and Giveaway: Vaporesso Estoc Tank Mega From Heaven Gifts


The Estoc Tank MEga by Vaporesso is an easy to use tank that uses affordable and eco-friendly atomizers.
The Estoc Tank Mega by Vaporesso is a top fill, 4ml RTA that uses affordable and eco-friendly atomizers.

I’m excited to talk about this tank that was given to me by Heaven Gifts once again to review. I’m also excited to be doing my first giveaway on this blog!

The Estoc Tank Mega by Vaporesso is currently priced at $19.00 and holds 4ml of e-liquid, top fill with bottom air holes. It uses disposable coil heads only; no RDA option.

Now about these coil heads; if there is one reason why you should get the Vaporesso Estoc Tank Mega, it’s because of the coil head it uses. I will go into that a little later in this review. But first…


What’s in the box?

No tools needed for the Estoc

What you get when you open the box is the Estoc Tank Mega with a pre-installed coil at 0.5 ohms. You also get an extra coil head that reads at 0.4 ohms, a replacement glass tank and user manual.

That red cap you see on the top of the tank is actually a rubber guard that protects your lips from touching the tank. This can be taken off if you don’t like it. There is also an extra rubber guard and bottom o-ring included. No tools are needed for the Estoc tank so that’s a good thing.


Very user-friendly

Using this tank is such a breeze

Like I said earlier, I was completely blown away by the EUC Ceramic Coils the Estoc tank uses. It’s a small little coil head which you just pop in the chimney, screw the base back on and viola!

What really impressed me is how long this coil lasts. I’ve been vaping on the stock coil head for more than a week now and I still get that same fresh taste I got off my e-juice when I first used the coil.


The EUC Ceramic Coil is truly a game changer!

The EUC coils deliver good on its promise. I used 5 different e-liquids on the very same coil. Never did the two flavors mix or get in the way of each other. It’s like the coils were made to strain flavors from each other and leaves no aftertaste!

Another great thing about the Estoc Tank Mega coils is there is no back spitting whatsoever. No little splashes of e-liquid on your tongue when you vape.

I have also never had a dry hit using the EUC. I’ve been vaping mostly within the 35-45 watt range, and it’s always given me a smooth, flavorful vape!

As for the life cycle of this coil, I have been vaping on it for more than a week now and its still not letting up. I’m gonna have to do a follow up on how long this coil actually lasted me because it’s still vaping good as we speak.

The best part about the EUC Ceramic Coil is it’s way more affordable compared to other competing disposable coils. A pack of 10 will cost you a little under $20. You usually only get 5 pieces at the same price with other brands, most of them not lasting nearly as long as the EUC’s.


Filling the tank is easy-peezy

Top fill makes everything easy

All you have to do is unscrew the top cap and pour in the e-juice. I’ve never had it leak on me after screwing the top back on.

I love the Estoc tank. It’s definitely my favorite tank right now. What I love about it is its just easy to use. Compared to my sub-ohm RTA’s, the Estoc is way easier to deal with. I don’t have to use any tools to open it up, and no more coil building. Did I mention already how the EUC coils are something that I’ve never experienced before?

Product Review: OBS Engine RTA From Heaven Gifts


wp-1475386417818.jpg
The Engine RTA is a top airflow, 25mm tank that has temperature control which is perfect for sub-ohm builds!

There are problems when it comes to sub-ohm RTA’s. Airflow is too wide, not enough flavor, the tank gets too hot, just to name a few.

Fortunately there’s a company that has solved these problems with this new tank just released called the Engine RTA by OBS.

I was very lucky to be contacted by Heaven Gifts to review this new tank they have on their website. I’m so happy to have known about this tank or else it would’ve flew over my radar.

The OBS Engine RTA was a totally different experience from the usual wide airflow, big vapor tanks I’ve gotten used to. Same big clouds but with a tighter draw, more flavor, and a self cooling feature which I will be getting into in a little bit.


What’s inside the box?

The OBS Engine RTA comes with quite a number of useful things.

What you get is the OBS Engine RTA, a replacement glass tank, a mini tool, user manual, o-rings, screws, cotton, and 2 twisted wire coils. They pretty much have everything you need in there and I like how they also included cotton.


Cool features

Adjustable top air flow. The Engine is a well-built leak-proof RTA.

The temperature control feature on the Engine RTA is on point! The tank would never, and I mean never heat up when I would chain vape on it. Very cool feature indeed.

Not only does the tank stay cool but so does your vape. I tried vaping this at 100 watts which is something I never do and the vape was cool and smooth. No burnt taste or lip-burning heat from the drip tip.

And I must say that the flavor on this tank is uh-MAY-zing! It’s definitely one of the best tasting RTA’s I’ve vaped on in a while.

The airflow on the Engine is tighter than usual if you’re the type of vaper that is used to sub-ohm tanks. But the airflow for me is perfect and really draws out the flavor on the inhale.


Easy to use and no leaks!

Easy to fill juice hole and easy to build on deck.

The Engine uses a Velocity style deck which was easy for me to attach my coils to. Simply insert the coil, screw it in place and snip the ends. There are 4 wick holes at the bottom where you insert your cotton through. The use of the deck is simple which I like.

Refilling this tank is super easy! That OBS logo on the Engine is actually a sleeve cover which you simply push up to fill with your e-liquid.


Made for cloud chasing

These posts were made for low resistance builds.

One thing that concerned me were the posts. They looked thin to me but held it’s own when I put it under the test. I was vaping at 0.12 and trying higher wattage. The posts did not budge and were not affected at all. The Engine takes low resistance builds like a champ!


Small package with lots of e-juice capacity

Size comparison of the Geek Vape Griffin 25mm Mini RTA (left) and the OBS Engine RTA (right).

What impressed me a lot was the juice capacity of the Engine. In the picture above, I placed it next to the Griffin 25mm Mini. Although the OBS Engine is a little smaller compared to the Griffin, it holds a lot more juice. The Griffin has an e-liquid capacity of 2.5ml while the Engine holds up to 5ml! Good job OBS for being able to make room for more e-liquid in a small tank.


Final thoughts on the Engine RTA

The OBS Engine RTA is currently priced at $32.90 on HeavenGifts.com. So it comes down to the question of would I ever buy it.

Absolutely, and I’ll tell you why.

The Engine is probably the smoothest vape I’ve had in a long time. I don’t know if it’s the cooling function in it but the Engine gives off a very smooth and cool vape. The flavor is crisp whenever I vape on a new build. It may not seem like it but this tank produces a very generous amount of vapor. And when it comes to builds, this RTA is one of the easiest to work on.

Are there any changes I would like to see in the Engine? I’d probably like to see it in a single coil version or some with a disposable coil option.

But I get it, the Engine was made for low resistance builds and high wattage, and it does a very good job at what it was made for.

Difference Between Flavor And Cloud Chasing Tanks


Cloud chasing vs. flavor chasing
Cloud chasing vs. flavor chasing

What matters more for you when it comes to vaping? Is it vapor production? Or are you more focused on flavor?

Is there a difference between tanks geared towards vapor production and flavor oriented tanks? If there is, what is it? Is it how they are made? Is it how they function that make them different from each other?

I asked myself these same questions and after a lot of thought I came up with this post I’m sharing with you.

Differences between flavor chasing and cloud chasing

For the most part, flavor and cloud chasing tanks are mostly similar; they work the same way and have the same functions.

There are mainly 2 differences between cloud chasing tanks and tanks that let out better flavor. These are air flow and resistance.

How air flow affects flavor and vapor

The biggest difference between the two is how “open” the air flow is. Tanks that were made to produce more vapor will have wide air holes. These take a little more effort, and was made for more forceful inhales or “lung hits.” Flavor tanks have smaller air holes which give it a “tighter” draw that is a lot more similar to the feel of smoking a cigarette.

The smaller air holes make it easier for the vaper to inhale. If you’ve tried vaping on wide air holes, you’ll instantly notice that a flush of air hits your mouth.  A tighter draw feels more natural gives the vaper to savor the flavor more. The downside to smaller air holes is the tighter the draw, the less vapor production.

Difference in ohms resistance

There’s also the difference between the two in terms of resistance. Flavor tanks have higher resistances at above 1 ohm at the least.

For cloud chasing tanks, the resistance is below 1 ohm hence the term “sub-ohm vaping.” The lower the resistance, the more powerful the heating becomes. This is why cloud chasing tanks are usually built strong and can stand high temperatures.

The downside is sub-ohm vaping will require you to use a special type of battery which is usually an 18650 battery. These are more powerful than the Energizers you see in the grocery aisle. It also drains your battery a lot faster. Higher resistance uses less power for heating.
