VGOD TrickTank Review
VGOD TrickTank Review
VGOD is a highly known brand, and have finally entered the market to offer their own subohm tank, the VGOD TrickTank!The VGOD TrickTank is a relatively new subohm tank that hit the market.
Subohm tanks have become extremely popular, and we saw a huge influx of them enter the market as of late, especially with the August 8th Deadline. Vapers love subohm tanks, because they provide excellent vapor and flavor production, some even being close to that of an RDA in regards to performance.
In this review, we will be going over everything there is to know about the VGOD TrickTank and how it holds up to the competition!
Out of the Box
When first taking this tank out of the package, the first thing I immediately noticed is how small it is. Even though its diameter is 24mm, it is quite small in size. I choose the black color, as this is my preference when purchasing the tank and it just looks great with a black box mod!
The black finish the TrickTank has seems to be matte, which is certainly eye appealing. Honestly, this black color is probably one of the best there is, and I currently own a ton of black atomizers. It just looks good.
The packaging itself is quite nice as well, and not too large overall. The box itself goes over some warnings, tells you what is inside of the box, and gives a small description of the tank itself. I do want to note that my package did come slightly damaged, but that could have easily happened during shipping, but still something to mention.
Included with your purchase you receive the VGOD TrickTank, one coil preinstalled, one spare coil and a spare glass tank section. The inclusion of the spare glass tank section is a huge pro in my opinion!
The coil heads look similar to the Atlantis Coil Heads, but they are definitely not the same. Atlantis Coil Heads do not fit in this tank and vice versa, which is kind of a bummer as I do like the Atlantis Coil Heads, but that is not saying these coil heads are bad by any means!
The fill method is similar to the Aspire Cleito Tank, where you unscrew the top section to fill your e-liquid. The top section is one piece, and it screws into the coil head.
Overall, I do have to say though, the design in regards to how this tank functions is very similar to the Aspire Cleito.
Another thing I noticed right away is that this tank had no adjustable airflow. This was something that worried me at first, and I know this is something that will probably bother many people as well.
The TrickTank does come apart fairly easily, so I knew right away that cleaning this tank would be simple and easy. I did not notice any machine oil nor did I smell any, which is another huge pro! However, I did wash it out once with soap and water before use, as this is something I always recommend with any new atomizer.
Overall, my first impressions of the VGOD TrickTank were great. I loved the compact form factor, the extras they included and the somewhat of a matte black finish.
So one of the main questions about this tank is, well how does it perform and compare to other subohm tanks? I can honestly say this tank is quite the performer!
Firstly, I do want to mention that this tank includes two different coil heads, a 0.2 ohm and a 0.5 ohm. Overall, I much preferred the 0.2 ohm coil over the 0.5 ohm coil head. For one, the 0.5 ohm coil head I received just leaked almost every single time I filled it. This is a huge con, which I will go over more down below in the cons section.
The 0.2 ohm coil head performed quite well, and my sweet spot was about 55w. At this wattage, I got a nice warm satisfying vape, as well as great vapor production.
These 0.2 ohm coil heads wicked really well, and I do mean extremely well. I could literally chain vape the tank dry, and this coil head just keeps up. It continuously wicks every single time I take a vape.
I put about 70ml of e-liquid through one 0.2 ohm coil head and it was still going strong. The second 0.2 ohm coil I installed has had about 50ml of e-liquid through it, and it still it great so far. In addition, this e-liquid I have in this tank currently has a decent amount of sweetener, and still it performs amazingly. So I can honestly say that these coil heads are excellent.
Okay, now onto flavor. The flavor out of this tank is really good, I would say definitely above average. I would say better than most subohm tanks I have tried or owned in the past. I do think there are tanks with better flavor, but the flavor was still very good.
I do think the flavor was better in the 0.2 ohm coil head. The 0.5 ohm coil head performed quite well, and was better suited at lower wattages. I personally like a warm vape, so the 0.2 ohm coil just suited my vaping style better.
Now with this type of performance, you can surely expect that this tank can really go through juice. This tank has a 3ml e-liquid capacity, which isn’t huge, but definitely decent for its size.
Let’s talk about airflow. The airflow is not adjustable, but this is perfect amount of airflow for me. It is not too airy nor is it too restrictive. Honestly, this airflow is nearly perfect for the way I prefer to vape. This is definitely subjective, and can be considered a con which we will go going over later on in the review.
Filling this tank proved to be another hassle, but I will get more into that in the cons section as well.
On average, while working I could fill this tank probably every two hours or so. It really depended on how much I vaped during the time from when I filled it honestly. However, it definitely goes through juice quite quickly, especially at higher wattages.
Overall, the performance of the VGOD TrickTank was excellent overall. The coil heads that I used lasted a great amount of time, and provided me with excellent flavor and vapor production throughout most of its lifecycle. Even though the performance of this tank was great, it definitely has some cons, which is what we will get into next!
In this section, I will go over the cons of this tank, and there are quite a few. Before getting into the major cons, I will state some of the minor cons.
For one, you cannot use your own preferred 510 drip tips. Personally, for me it is definitely not a con and can be seen as more of a subjective con. The drip tip itself does slide off, similar to that of the Cleito, but I have not seen any custom drip tips or anything as of yet.
Another con is that this subohm tank has no adjustable airflow, so it is wide open all the time. Now, I do think this is subjective as some people prefer to leave their atomizers wide open, but some like to close it off a bit to find their own sweet spot.
For me, the airflow is just right. It is not too airy nor is it too restrictive. People wanting a very airy draw would probably not like this airflow, nor would people who like a very restricted airflow.
To compare it to another atomizer, it is a bit more airy than the Petri V2 with the stock airflow cap, but definitely less airy than the cloud cap for the Petri V2.
Okay, so here is the biggest con of all, this tank leaks from time to time. It happened a lot for me with the 0.5 ohm coil head. I have no idea why, and I literally checked everything when taking the coil in and out.
Maybe I just had a bad coil head, but it would literally just leak all over my box mod every single time I filled it with this specific coil head.
Even with the 0.2 ohm coil head, which I much preferred, it still leaked a bit. It definitely did not leak as bad as the 0.5 ohm coil head, but it still happened. In addition, it did not constantly happen, it just happened once in a while with the 0.2 ohm coil head.
When the 0.2 ohm coil head had any leakage, it was very minimal, so it didn’t bother me too much.
This is something definitely to mention, as I personally hate tanks that leak. Like said previously, maybe I had a bad coil head, but still I had some very minor leaking issues with the 0.2 ohm coil head.
Lastly, another con I encountered while using this tank was that sometimes when unscrewing the top cap to fill the tank, the entire coil head would unscrew with it. This was definitely annoying as it would cause e-liquid to pour out of the airflow holes if there were any left in the tank.
This did not happen often, but it still happened so I have to mention it.
The last con, I want to mention is that this tank does get quite warm when chain vaping. Like said before, I vape the 0.2 ohm coil around 55w, and chain vaping it does get somewhat warm. Not very warm, but still noticeably warm, so this is something surely to mention.
Overall, even though this subohm tank had some cons to it, it still is a great performer, which leads me to my conclusion!
Overall, the VGOD TrickTank is definitely a performer! This tank honestly performs better than most of the subohm tanks I’ve tried, and have been thoroughly satisfied in regards to that specifically.
This tank definitely has some cons to it, and maybe I just got a bad batch of coil heads in the packaging. There are some subjective cons to it as well such as the nonadjustable airflow, and not being able to use your own preferred 510 drip tip.
For me, those are definitely not cons, especially to how I personally vape. However, I can see that these are cons to people who want these features in a subohm tank for sure.
I do want to mention though, going over to the CSVAPE website they have released a version 2 which has fixed all and any of the issues I have encountered! I personally have not tried this version, and can only speak of my personal experiences I had with my version 1.
They are also clearing out the VGOD TrickTanks V1 for a relatively good price, so if these cons do not bother you much, I would definitely say check it out.
With the VGOD TrickTank V2 out now, and with the issues fixed, I can definitely say this tank is worth a shot. This tank just performs, and these coil heads last extremely long even with juices that have a decent amount of sweetener!
Also with subohm tanks, please use batteries that can handle high amounts of wattage and lower resistances. Feel free to check out my article on some of the best 18650 batteries right here! You can also click the link down below if you are interested!
Even with the issues I had with mine, I still enjoy this tank and continue to use it. I honestly use this tank almost every day as it just vapes really well. To me, the pros just out weigh cons, especially since I hardly run into the leaking issue with the 0.2 ohm coil heads.
All in all, I recommend the VGOD TrickTank, especially the V2 as they have stated they have fixed all the problems I ran into. I love the way this tank looks, and the compact size it has. Not to mention, this tank has great performance and excellent coil heads!
