First I would like to mention that I won a Skystar Revvo Kit from this very website, thank you Aspire. I haven't even had it for 2 days yet so here is my first impressions of the Skystar Revvo kit.
A little about my vaping experience. I started vaping back in July, started with the MarkTen ecig, to get me off of cigarettes. It worked, mostly because my body was in a lot of pain and the nicotine pains weren't that bad, the pain in my body is a story for another day. After weeks of MarkTen my wife showed me an iPV D2 and Atlantis V2 that somebody gave her a while back, so I took to vape shop and they set me up and got it working for me. I liked the iPV so much I bought another, the iPV D4, and been using it ever since. I also purchased a number of Aspire products, the CF Mod, G Force battery and K1 (for the wife), Atlantis Evo, Cleito, Cleito Exo, Nautilus X (rainbow), and Triton 2. I'm not a pro vaper and never even knew about vaping until July, if I had then I probably would have quit smoking long ago.
On to the Revvo tank.
It's different. It works. It has good flavor. In the short time I been using the Revvo, no leaks what so ever. Filling it is easy, my regular juice uses the eye dropper and no problems filling the Revvo tank with that. Although I do remove the drip tip when filling just so I can see what's happening. While vaping sometimes I hear a crackling noise, to cure this I just hold it upside down for a few seconds before vaping. I don't like the crackling noise since my other Aspire coils don't do this, the crackling noise gives me flashbacks of when I bought coils from ebay. My daily vape juice is a 50/50 6mg called Wild Fire by Puff. I normally burn it at 70-75 watts, with 0.3 ohm coil, in my Atlantis Evo with the 5ml Cleito glass installed. The Revvo gives me a lot better flavor, might I say it is a smoother and richer flavor. Not sure why, perhaps because the Revvo coil is burning more juice, because it seems to me that I go thru more juice. Maybe it just seems like it because the Revvo tank has a small capacity and needs filling more. I'd buy a kit for the Revvo that allows for more juice capacity if one was available, 3.6 ml don't' seem to go far in this tank, and the 2.0 ml must suck for those across the pond. The Revvo is the first tank of its kind, cant wait to see what this evolves into.
The Skystar Mod.
I expected this thing to be bigger than it is, maybe the short tank helps it to look smaller. It feels good in my hand due to it's rounded shape. This is my first dual battery mod, so I don't have any experience here to compare with other mods. I bought some LG HE2 batteries, believe they are 35A 2500mAh, and they sure don't seem to last long burning the Revvo coil at 82 watts. I installed my Atlantis Evo with 0.3 coil and bump the watts down to 72 watts and gives better battery life. Also, when vaping my Evo, I get a better flavor while using the Skystar compared to using my iPV D4 which makes me wonder if the mod itself makes my juice taste better concerning my Revvo vs Atlantis Evo comparison. The touch screen operates nicely, has all the settings I need to vape. I've seen other branded mods that have a puff counter which would have been nice on the Skystar. Also, the clock can be displayed in digital format, a 12/24 hour option would have been nice since I cant be bothered to convert 16:34 in my head to a 12 hour time that I recognize. All in all this is a very nice mod, has good looks, and will probably last me a long time since it was made by Aspire.
My first vaping accident.
So I had my Skystar Revvo in my jacket pocket. I was in my car, just pulled in my driveway and parked my car, proceed to check my text messages while sitting in my car. Then I could feel something making my leg warm. Checked my pants pocket and nothing is there, so I jumped out of my car and looked and saw nothing on the seat. I then proceed to check my jacket pocket and smoke is coming from it. On no, I thought Skystar is on fire, although it wasn't really on fire. Pulled it from my jacket pocket and it fell in the snow. Found it and picked it up and the Atlantis Evo glass was broken, more than likely from the heat. The mod must have gotten the fire button pressed in while in my pocket. So I get in the house and wipe the snow from the Skystar, and then wipe the water from it. The screen is blank, pressing fire button does nothing. Replace batteries and still nothing. Took out the batteries again and replaced them and it turned on. Had me worried that the water killed it but it works fine. I assume that the smoke coming from my pocket was the juice being burnt out of the coil. The drip tip on the Evo started melting so I know there was some heat being transferred there. I'm thinking maybe the default setting on Vape time should be set 5 seconds instead of 15 seconds. If the user needs more then can set it longer. I noticed my vape time is never been even 4 seconds so I adjusted the vape time down to minimum 5 seconds. I find it hard to believe the fire button was being activated while the mod was in my pocket because if you look at the mod it looks like the devs thought of that and there is a chrome trim around the button that should prevent this from happening. I will be turning my mod off from now on when leaving it in my pocket. Please Aspire, find some way to add a safety feature that prevents meltdown if the fire button is held in continuously, surely lowering the Vape time should do it but I'm not testing it.
