iStick Pico Review: 3in1 Look At One Of The Top Vape Ranges
The fog horns are a-blowing guys!!! This week has been a veritable vapathon on my side, with me reviewing the new love of my life…that’s right. Check out the rest of this review to learn why I’ve got them butterflies in my tummy. Man, what an outstandingly sexy little beast this is. Through the roof with features and sheer dynamite in the smallest, sleekest, most lust-inspiring package you could possibly hope for. Champion of the vaping gods is Eleaf, once again!
To start off this Eleaf Pico Review, let me give you the low down on Eleaf as a brand. China based and established back in 2011, Eleaf quickly made itself known throughout the vaping world as a quality, affordable brand that’s both trendy and technologically on top of it’s game. With the release of their iStick range in 2014, that popularity exploded. Adding temperature control features to the iStick range, they continued to make waves into present day, with the release of the incredible iStick Pico line.
Now, Pico means small, so as you can imagine and as my Eleaf iStick Pico review will show you, the line boasts an unapologetic range of power features packed into sexy, pint-sized mod boxes… for the discerning vape enthusiast who wants to get the most bag for his buck and for his box dimensions, simply irresistible.
For the purpose of this review I got ahold of the full kits, which include all the necessaries, including atomizers…however, I also got ahold of the Pico RTA so I could give you a little low down on that. I wasn’t afraid to go all out because this is a trusted brand. So trusted, in fact, that I know, even if there are features which are questionable, a new release always means some level of improvement. Kudos to Eleaf, I love you as a brand and I’m pumped about this review.
iStick Pico Ratings
The difference between the Mega and Regular Pico is simply that the Mega uses a 26650 battery, with an adapter for the 18650 and it fires up to 100W. I found the products to be of equal quality, firing up to their respective maxes.
2ml Melo III Mini(4ml Melo III on the Mega), iStick Pico mod, 0.5 Ohm EC head(0.3 and 0.25 included with Mega), USB cable, 4 spare silicone O-rings, user manuals for both the mod and the tank. The Mega kit also includes an18650 adapter.
- Runs on an 18650 battery (Mega also uses a 26650)
- Various firing modes
- Wattage range of 1-75W
- Temp range off 200-600 degrees Fahrenheit
- Resistance range or 0.1-3.5 or o.5-1.5, depending on firing mode
- Micro USB port for charging and firmware upgrades
- OLED screen
Size: 70.6 x 45.2 x 23.2 mm, that is what I call a micro mod! incredibly portable and compact but with a nice weight that gives it a quality feel. The protruding battery cap on top is the reason why you have a mod here that’s actually smaller than the battery it holds, for lack of a better way of putting it.
Looks: Ultra sexy, in a range of shades…white is definitely my favorite, with brushed metal top and bottom. My kit came with tank components matching the color of my mod, it’s just super neat. Nice rounded sides and a sweet little LCD with discreet buttons. Eleaf cannot be faulted on superficial features. Hands down one of the sleekest looking mods out there.
Micro USB Port: Both for charging and firmware upgrades and in a nice position at the side and bottom so that your mod can easily stand whilst plugged in.
Menu System: A really bright OLED screen will display your menu, which is as simple as it could possibly be, considering the massive range of features and functions on this baby. Functions are too many to cover here but google and read your leaflet to familiarize yourself with your piece…or check out this video!
Temp Control: I’m a sucker for this function as I seriously don’t fancy a hot vape or having to replace anything. The temp control on this system is outstanding and highly versatile, supporting nickel, titanium and stainless steel wires.
Stealth Mode: This allows you to vape in the dark without waking the cat…no lights Amigo!
Performance: Superb, consistent, powerful, I feel like swearing it's so good!
The Melo III range: Slowly increasing your wattage, this tank range provides the fullest flavor, medium airflow and rich, consistent, out of this world vape quality with no leakage. I’m loving it.
None, are you kidding me?
iStick Pico Mega Review
Same-same: I dare say, all the same features and pros as above yet this little baby is even more of a beast, running smooth up to 100W. Heavy juice consumption but what do you expect when I’ve got the fog horns sounding from blowing clouds out my freakin’ window.
Compatibility: A sweet adapter sleeve makes changing battery sizes a breeze.
Changes: Larger Screen and button, as if just to let you know that this is a Mega, I like!
More Juice: Kick-Ass Melo III sub-Ohm 4ml tank
iStick Pico RTA Review
Looks: This is a beautiful looking RTA, with the cleanest lines you could possibly ask for, has a tendency to look cloudy out of the box but clears once filled. Fits snug on the mod.
Airflow: decent, 1.5mm x 3 holes, nice medium airflow. Good AFC with the Pico iStick
Tested: Beautiful Vapor production with 2 different build styles
The top fill (4 x 2mm holes) has a tendency to cause a little seepage when you screw the cap back on, however…carry Kleenex and you’re good to go.
Special Brand Features
The Three Aces: Eleaf is a transparent and trusted brand that delivers well above average on Quality, Performance and Range. This is one of the top brands available.
Affordability: Extreme affordability and shocking value for money.
What you have in the Pico range is a line of flawless products, literally. A pleasure to use, gorgeous to look at, with vapor production, remarkable performance and endurance, all packed into pint sized, pretty packages. I seriously recommend Eleaf and the Pico range for any beginner or advanced vaper who doesn’t want to feel the pang of buyers regret. I support this brand, I love my Pico devices and will continue raising the fog horns with these babies for many many months to come, prized possessions!
