Let me preface this by saying that I own several of the original style iclear 30, and I am a huge fan of how they perform. Granted, I go through juice at an alarming rate when I'm using the iclear, but the flavor, throat hit, and giant clouds of vapour make it worth the extra juice.
Anyways, picked up an itaste vtr last week, which comes with the new style of iclear, the 30s (or is it s30? Doesn't matter really) I don't know if I got a bum unit, but this thing doesn't even come close to the original iclear performance wise. It gurgles, it leaks juice out the bottom, and worst of all, the flavor of my blueberry tobacco is muted to the point of almost being completely tasteless.
I don't know what they changed in there, there's a metal post in the middle that contains the wicks, not sure if the coil is the same or not. Anyways, it sucks. I'm super happy with the vtr itself, it is a powerful little device, it looks cool as hell, and at just under one pound of solid steel, it doubles as a blunt object. I am using one of my older iclears in it right now and it delivers one hell of a vape. Has anyone else found the new iclear s30 to be subpar? Did I just get a bum unit that slipped through the gaping cracks that are chineses quality control? Also, I haven't taken it apart yet and it's full of juice so I don't plan to just yet, so can someone tell me, are the replacement coils the same as the ones in the original iclear 30?
