    Hi ECF members, In this review i take a look at the Raptor Subohm Tank 2ml/4ml from Ehpro. The Ehpro Raptor Subohm Tank was supplied for the purpose of this review by Christina from Heaven Gifts.

    Introduction

    Ehpro were known for manufacturing quality affordable clones but that seems in the distant past as more recently they have been manufacturing some well received products of their own, including many collaborations with reviewers. The Raptor is a 25mm in diameter subohm tank which houses Falcon compatible coils that use Sea Grass Fiber Cotton as their wicking material. Subohm tanks over the last 2 years have got progressively better and better as we have seen the use of mesh coils and more recently experimentation with wicking materials. The only thing that still often lets subohm tanks down is turbulence and noise when plenty of air is introduced so does the Raptor offer anything new?, Let's find out!

    Aesthetics and Ergonomics

    The Raptor came in cardboard box with outer cardboard sleeve packaging and on opening i found i had received the Silver version. The Raptor is available in Black, Silver and Gunmetal, all colour versions come with a Goon fitting 810 Resin drip tip. Apart from the top-cap sliding mechanism being a bit jerky the build quality is very good, machining and threading is as good as you will get with a subohm tank.
    The Raptor has a diameter of 25mm and comes pre-installed with a straight glass, it is quite tall and looking through the glass we can see the installed large coil head. The airflow control ring is quite smooth with a short straightened section either side with the Raptor logo printed, these straightened sections can be used for grip when adjusting the airflow which is large dual slots. Below and above the airflow control ring we have bands of heavy textured design and we also have a grooved textured design on the top section of the tank.
    Moving to the base we have etched safety stamps and branding, the Gold plated 510 is fixed and protrudes slightly.

    The Raptor's Various Parts

    The Raptor is pretty basic in it's components comprising of a rather nice Resin Goon style fitting 810 drip tip and top section which is made up of sliding top-cap, fill plate and attached chimney. The base section has an airflow control ring with very large dual airflow slots and stoppers, looking at the bottom of the base we have etched safety stamps and branding, the Gold plated 510 is fixed and protrudes. Looking inside the base we have a positive plate and the coil head gets screwed into the base and onto the chimney when the tank is screwed together. The Raptor comes pre-installed with a straight glass that holds 4ml of e-liquid (bung reducing capacity to 2ml (TPD version)) that is secured to both the top section and base with thick o-rings, also included is a 6ml bulge glass.

    The Coils

    The coil heads are quite an interesting design and also use Sea Grass Fiber Cotton as their wicking material. Not too sure whether Sea Grass can be processed to give a Cotton looking material or if like we have seen with other experimental wicking materials the Sea Grass Fiber is mixed with Organic Cotton.
    The wire material of the mesh is not marked on the coil heads but is Kanthal. Pre-installed we have the EL1B-3 Single mesh coil which is 0.15ohm and has a rating between 40-70W. The other included coil is the EL2B-3 Dual mesh coil which is 0.25ohm and rated between 60-80W, also available but not included is a 0.15ohm Quad mesh coil which has a rating between 70-100W. The coils will also fit the Falcon and the Falcon coils are also compatible with the Raptor which is a big pro and adds to choice. The air enters the coil heads via the bottom and here is where we see an interesting propeller design splitting the airflow in 3 as it enters the coil head in theory both reducing turbulence and keeping it quiet.

    Filling

    The Raptor has a slide open top-fill method and we have an arrow head to show where to push. The movement when opening is quite jerky and really wish it was much smoother but it's not loose so when closed it's not going to open when in the pocket. The fill port is a good size with plenty of room to also allow air to escape when filling.

    My Experience Using The Raptor

    Apart from the top-cap not opening as smoothly as i would like i really can't find any fault with the Raptor. When i read the Falcon coils were compatible i did think that would be a pro because it would mean better coils were available for it but both the coils that come with the Raptor are matching the Falcon coils for flavour and have superior smoothness. In fact the single mesh coil has the smoothest airflow i have ever known with a single mesh coil which have in the past gave cracking flavour but have given turbulence also making a tank loud.
    The propeller design definitely works smoothing the airflow out while still giving bags of air, i needed to use the single mesh coil head with the airflow less than half open for the restriction i like. The dual mesh coil gives more restriction but i still only had the airflow halfway and this coil matched the single mesh coil for both flavour and smoothness, i only preferred the single mesh over the dual because i can use it at a lower wattage. Both coil heads have zero break-in time giving top-notch flavour from the off and i found they have such a wide range for giving their best flavour from their lowest rating right up to 20W over their high rating as i found both coils still wicked with no problems but the vape at these wattage's was far too hot for me. I personally preferred the single mesh coil at 60W and the dual mesh coil at 75W, unfortunately i didn't receive the quad mesh coil head to try. While testing the tank i just stuck with the 4ml straight glass so i did need to fill quite often so if it was my go to tank (which despite rating it highly i use RTA's mainly) i would switch to the 6ml bulge glass which gives very good capacity. I got through several tank fills of e-liquid with both coil heads and the flavour from both is still banging which actually hasn't surprised me as longevity with coil heads when using experimental wicking materials has been much better than using just Organic Cotton.

    Excellent review, I’ve been enjoying your reviews for awhile now and appreciate your thoroughness. I don’t like review videos for some reason, I just can’t watch them, and you have become one of my trusted vape advisors. Anyway enough of the atta boy back patting, I wanted to ask if you have continued using this tank and if so are the coils holding up? Also have you by chance tried the falcon coil in this? I just noticed I won this tank from heavens gift giveaway on July 31st, they never PM’ed me I just happened across that fact, but I’m excited to check this one out, it seems promising.

    I did use it for a while longer the problem is i'm always testing products so even when really liking something can't use it as often as i would like. Certainly the coils are matching the falcon coils for longevity and flavour and also like with all the coils that are experimenting with wicking materials they seem to hold the e-liquid better so doesn't leak through the airflow which is why i tend to avoid bottom airflow especially as top airflow tanks have improved flavour wise. These coils are better than the falcon though in my opinion as i got much smoother airflow.

    After saying that i haven't actually used the Falcon King coils only the Falcon coils!

    Yea I figured you probably had to move on to the next review. Your review was the first I seen and I’ve checked out quite a few more. It seems like this is a pretty good tank, haven’t heard anything bad about it, beside a few minor things. Should be nice, I haven’t bought a subohm tank since the original crown way back when. I win a giveaway every now and then which has been working out great. Ive been using a Geekvape Alpha and Uforce T2 with freemax coils which are both nice but if this tank pans out like I think it will the Alpha is going to get retired. I mainly Squonk but like to keep one or two factory coil tanks around for ease and when I’m lazy and don’t feel like a rewick/rebuild. Thanks again for your review and response, I appreciate it.
