Review: Ammit RTA by GeekVape

Denne omtalen er også tilgjengelig på Norsk.

GeekVape has put quite a few successful atties on the market by now but sadly I haven't been able to try any of them out yet. The Tsunami RDAs, the Avocado RDTAs and the Griffin RTAs and in different sizes and versions are all praised classics by now I guess, as well as the Eagle sub-ohm tank. But they are also putting out new interesting atties like the Peerless RDA, the Medusa RDTA and not to forget the subject of this review, the Ammit RTA, which is a single coil RTA aimed at the flavour chasers.

      Look and feel

      The Ammit comes both in black and stainless steel. I think it looks pretty good in both versions to be honest. Guess it depends on what you like best and what mod you plan to power it with. Build quality seems pretty good with nice smooth threading on the top filling and a nice clicky airflow control. The juice flow control on mine is damn tight though, not sure why. I've seen other video reviews of the Ammit where this also seems pretty nice and smooth. But overall it looks good with "Ammit" and a crocodile head (Ammit was a demon in ancient Egyptian relition with a crocodile head) printed on the chamber section on the inside.

      In use

      As I said, top filling is nice and smooth, and it has nice big kidney shaped fill holes. Works like a charm. Taking the atty apart for cleaning is also pretty easy, but you can't really take the bottom section apart as far as I know, which makes it a bit more time consuming to clean.

      With any atty that has the airflow coming in from the bottom there is always a risk of some leaking, but I've not had any problems on this one. When turning the nice and clicky airflow control ring I can get a bit of juice on my fingers but no real leaks and no problem at all for me. The juice flow control, as I said is pretty damn tight on mine but that haven't been a big problem as I'm not using it actively anyway, I don't even bother closing it when filling. What I use to do with bottom airflow, top filling atties is to turn them upside down when I screw the top cap back on after filling. Not at once of course, but once you feel the resistance of the o-ring that seals the top cap, turn it upside down and screw it all the way down. This way the pressure that is created inside the tank by the top cap pressing down will only push air out from the juice flow holes rather than juice and you avoid leaking.

      Then we have ... the build-deck. That is where the magic happens in this atty. First of all, this is a pure single-coil atty. It has a pretty unique airflow system that GeekVape calls 3D airflow. As you see from the pictures, there is air coming from the underneath the coil, but in addition to this you have the three extra air holes that blows air from the side onto the coil as well. The build deck is really easy to build on, and to wick. I'm not sure about the diameter of the post holes but fitting a 26/32 fused clapton in there is no problem at all and there is room for even thicker wires. When wicking it I've just pulled the cotton down the side and cut it so it reaches the juice holes on the outside and then gently just pushed it into the wells on each side so it covers the holes nicely. You really don't need much cotton to make this atty work and wick really well.

      Speaking of wicking however, I was told that you shouldn't use to high VG juice on this one. I think the thickest juice I have is 60/40 VG/PG and I've had no problems with that. I've also seen people saying that 70/30 is ok, but it all depends on how thick the juice is. The reason for this is that there is very little room between the glass tube and the center chamber section on the Ammit. If the juice is too thick you may have air trapped in the juice flow holes and the juice will not reach your wick. As I said, I haven't tried anything over 60/40, which worked great, but I can see the speed of the bubbles is quite slow so I do believe that much thicker juice will be a problem. Not a big problem for me this, but something to be aware of especially if you need to vape high VG juices.

      Performance

      As I said, what happens on the deck in this atty is indeed magic in a way. I started out trying it out with my favourite juice, and it tasted absolutely fantastic on a .3 Ohm fused Clapton build hitting it with around 40 watts. Takes a while to warm up on the first draw but once the coil is preheated it's no problem. Right now I'm on a .8 Clapton on 30-35W and some great cinnamon roll juice (review will follow) and that also tastes absolutely fantastic if you ask me. This is definitely one of the best, if not the best, tasting single coil flavour chasing atties I've tried. I call it a flavour chasing atty cause that is what they have focused on here, but that doesn't mean it doesn't produce a decent amount of vapor as well, even on pretty low wattages. I am a bit surprised actually how fast my tank is emptied on such (relatively) low wattages. Then again, it only takes 3.5ml's of juice.

      Again... performance wise this tank is just incredible. Tons of pure, delicious flavour.

      Pros and cons

      +++ Flavour is just amazing
      ++ Decent vapor even on pretty low power
      ++ Nice innovative build deck
      + Nice clicky airflow
      + Price
      - Juice capacity
      - Tight juice flow control
      - Can't separate deck from base for cleaning

      Conclusion

      Awesome! I'm impressed. It's ridiculously cheap as well to be honest. At around $25-30 most places it outperforms atties that will cost you twice as much if not more (NOK 299,- at nosmoke.no this week, usually 349,-). I guess I'll have to try out more GeekVape atties now...


      Thanks a lot to nosmoke.no for making this review possible.
