Vaping some delicious Banana Fosters Max VG, at 3mg nioctine strength. I bought the juice from The Vapor Girl, a vapor shop in my area. |
I have to preface this by saying that while I'm truthfully not new to vaping (I've been vaping about a year) I'm still a noob. I don't know understand a lot about how vaping works, so please excuse me if I get some vocabulary or contextual knowledge wrong. Hopefully my post will make sense. OK!
I like the chrome finish on both the Mod and the Tank. It really looks sleek, and since the iSub G and the Coolfire IV are sort of "designed" to be used together, the tank fits nice and flush on top of the mod.
The clouds I can get with this tank are absolutely bonkers . If the settings are just right - If I'm vaping at a high wattage, with a 100% charged battery, and a fresh core, with fresh liquid - then I get some SERIOUSLY dank clouds. It's a blast to chill at the computer and produce clouds like a freakin' fog machine. I've never been able to produce clouds of this caliber, and get this good of a taste, from any hardware I've owned.
The whole unit, mod + tank, is fairly small, and relatively easy to put in a pocket. Not too heavy either.
It feels great in my hand. The model has an almost ergonomic feel to it, and it's very comfortable to hold. It looks and feels like quality and solid parts.
I've dropped this sucker more than a few times and nothing has ever broken. I suppose that's a testament to the build quality.
I've owned this tank for about six months, and I use it every day. I'm a fiend, so sometimes I'll be vaping all day. In the past two months I've noticed the battery is slipping in its potency(?), in its ability to keep a charge. Hypothetically, I can go a full day without charging, but the mod suffers from what I've heard people refer to as "battery drain" after a couple hours. It becomes more and more difficult to get a significant amount of vapor on each take. I have to keep this thing by a charger as much as possible. I don't know enough about vaping to know if this is normal, but it is annoying to have to keep unplugging and replugging it in all night to get that ideal vape.
The "faceplate", the piece of metal that covers the micro usb port and the display is flimsy. Everytime I unplug the USB cable, the faceplate pops up a little bit. It's just an aesthetic issue, as the functionality is not impacted, but it's annoying. It makes the whole unit feel cheap. In Innokin's defense, I watched a youtube review of the IV where the reviewer mentioned the same problem. The reviewer said he sent an email to Innokin about it, and they apologized and said this was a problem with only the 1st wave or 1st batch of CoolFire IVs, and there would not be this problem in subsequent distributions of the IV. Furthermore, Innokin has a 3 month warranty on their products, and they said they would swap a new Coolfire IV for anyone who had the 1st wave of IVs with this problem. I was too lazy to follow up with the company, but it's cool that they made that offer, I guess.
The tip that the iSub G comes with has this weird lip on the inside where grime and liquid collects. It gets nasty, and I have to clean it out more than I would like. I don't understand why the lip exists. It's also not super easy to fully clean the tip out without having some kind of tiny brush or otherwise small tool to get in there.
All said, I've been very pleased with the Coolfire IV and the iSub G (More so the iSub G than the IV), but I'm strongly considering side/upgrading in the next two months.
