    Why?


    I purchased this atomiser from P-Vaper back in late October when I had an attack of "new attyitis". There was no special reason other than others had suggested it as one to look at. I was busy "Professoring" at the time and didn't get around to reviewing it. So, as it needed re wicking and the weather was crap, I thought I'd do a review now - you will have to accept the used coils on the atomiser as I didn't feel like removing coils that were performing well :)


    This is what turned up:

    The tub contains the Hobo:

    A couple of spare (and really weeny) hex grub screws

    And yet another hex key in yet another size:

    About the Hobo


    The Hobo is USA made, serialised, and has a copper contact screw (which I failed to clean for the photo :) )


    [​IMG]


    The Hobo pulls apart to give the deck/juice well and cap/air-control sections:


    [​IMG]


    The top cap has a removable top section which is used to adjust the "upper air control":


    [​IMG]


    The two holes in the slanting part of the top cap can be closed and opened using this upper section to provide additional "above coil air":


    [​IMG]

    The three holes in the side of the main top cap provide adjustment for "normal" airflow to single or dual coil builds using the slots (centre hole for single, side pair for dual) in the side of the base:


    [​IMG]


    An excellent feature of the Hobo is that the base cylinder unscrews from the deck for ease of building and wicking:


    [​IMG]


    The deck has two holes in the centre post and decently deep juice wells:


    [​IMG]


    The coils shown are machine twisted kanthal with a total resistance of 0.5ohms:

    Here is the deck wicked with Japanese cotton and with the base cylinder replaced:

    The Hobo in use


    The Hobo is capable of provided a very large airflow and excellent vapour. It is also capable of giving a fairly tight draw for regular mouth to lung vaping.


    Here it is attached to my Super T Simplicity 18350 (yes - I'm using a battery rated at 10A)

    I've found the Hobo to provide decent flavour and vapour across its full range of adjustment - it is a good atomiser.
