    In the Box

    Contents:

    1pc Zeus RTA
    1pc Geekvape T-piece
    1pc User Manual
    1pc Spare Glass tube
    2pc Coil
    1pc Spare parts polybag
    1pc 510 delrin tip
    1pc 510 drip tip adaptor
    1pc 810 drip tip

    The tank comes with 3 drip tips, the 810 with outer sleeve which covers the rim, an 810 which sits flush on top of the rim and a 510 which will fit using the supplied 510 adapter (all drip tips are delrin)

    Aesthetics

    The Zeus is a single coil top airflow RTA (not the usual bottom airflow we would expect from Geekvape), so what does it look like? On opening the box i was met by a tank design of originality. With so many tanks out there you can usually see similarities to previous tanks but the Zeus has a look all of it's own. First thing is it's quite a stumpy RTA (i imagine the TPD version will be even shorter), the colour i received was silver. The main middle section has a frame around it with 3 vertical pieces, each of these vertical pieces has the word ZEUS cut out of them also on the vertical. It has a quality matt finish and vertical grooves machined on the base and airflow ring. The overall look reminds me of a piece of machinery or small engine part, it's a very smart looking tank indeed. The 810 delrin drip tip fitted on the tank has a sleeve that fits over the metal rim at the top of the tank which doesn't take anything away from the aesthetics of the tank.

    The Deck

    The originality increases when you set your eyes on the deck. It's a postless deck which has 2 towers for the airflow system set at an angle to the coil so the whole length of the coil will receive air. At first this causes a bit of disorientation as the eyes want to coil it in line with the towers as if they were posts, this is not helped by the fact the position of the juice intakes are also lined up as if this is the way to coil it. After studying the deck and position of the holes for the wires you start to see the concept. The coil is positioned at an angle to the towers and then your cotton is bent back on itself to enter the intakes. Its best to use a coil tool or rod to help position the coil and fasten the wires (using the tool makes it easy) as the towers get in the way of your fingers. Because the cotton needs to bend back on itself i combed it out losing about 20% of it so the cotton wasn't too dense on the bend.

    The Airflow System

    When you look inside the main section you see 2 cut outs for the top of the towers to position themselves before screwing the tank together. The towers look like mini cheese graters with 3 lines of 3 small holes in them and a large hole at the bottom. You can see that when the towers are in position they will create 2 air chambers. The air goes in through the top airflow (standard 2 cyclops with stopper) and down the 2 chambers that have been created. Air is allowed through the cheese grate holes getting to the sides and top of the coil. On hitting the bottom of the towers the air passes through the larger holes and goes underneath the coil, on the air from the bottom of the 2 towers meeting in the middle it can only go upwards hitting the bottom of the coil.
    The theory works wonderfully well, so fingers crossed.

    Filling the tank

    Filling the tank is a breeze as the Zeus has a bayonet style top-cap just turn and it pops off revealing 2 large filling slots.

    Performance

    Time to tell you whether the theory worked in practice and the answer is a undoubted yes, the airflow works great and when adjusting the airflow the ring has the perfect amount of resistance. So can it give flavour up there with the best bottom airflow single coil RTA's like the Ammit? Well i used 3 different pre-wound coils in the Zeus at various resistances and the flavour is right up there. It's not quite Ammit flavour but it's very marginal and the cloud of the Zeus was more so when you weigh in the benefits of less leakage from a top airflow the Zeus is one hell of a tank.
    I am reluctant to say a tank can't leak but i tried having the tank upside down and left it on it's side and detected no moisture whatsoever.

    Conclusion

    A very unique, high performance RTA which gives bottom airflow flavour while having the leak free benefits of the top airflow. The Geekvape Zeus i have no doubt will become many peoples favourite tank.
