Hi folks, it’s Monday review with Mike Godwin.
This time we’ll look at a single kit Geekvape Tsunami Mech Kit A first thing to say: This is a kit I recommend to all those who want to start with mechanical vaping. When I open the packaging, I can see the mech mod with the atomizer seated in foam bed. I also get a 510 pin mech cap, a 510 mouthpiece reduction, a user manual, spare O-rings, BF 510 pin, spare deck screws etc. This little thing can make this mech mod with or without its positive pin (hybrid connection) Now I’ve got the positive pin attached on. When I remove the atomizer and screw the hybrid mech cap in the inner tube, I get a hybrid mech mod. Everything is well insulated inside, the ramp-up time should be a little shorter, because there is less additional resistance. This is made for joy and fun. The only disadvantage is that you cannot insert a 20700 battery inside. Only 18650 to use. Otherwise this mod is great. On top we have the Geekvape Tsunami RDA. A lot of you have used it. Easy to build with a velocity deck, has a deep juice well, great airflow, is able to run single- or dual coil builds And the flavour? Marvelous… When you push your coils more towards the airflow holes, you get marvelous flavour. And the clouds are huge. I heard that some of you have problems with the fire button getting stuck. I’ve had no such problem. We’ll have a closer look and talk about what can be done about it. I don’t have much more to say about it. It’s a great feature to make it a hybrid mech. Let’s have a closer look and talk about how this kit works, how well it is made, build it and vape it. Beforehand, I’d like you to subscribe to my content, share and like this video. Any additional info can be found in the description. Geekvape Tsunami Mech kit. I’m showing you the package in detail, because there’s a lot inside. These are the basics. A BF 510 pin, spare stuff, tools stuff. Let’s talk about the mech mod first. I like this mech mod for its design. It’s decent. This is not resin, this is not lacquered Zinc. This looks like it’s powder coating or something similar, it appears as it shouldn’t wear off easily. The rest is all copper. The button is held by a circlip. The bottom pin is adjustable. The button springs hard, but not unpleasantly hard. Personally I like softer springing. The button has magnets inside. The outer tube is audibly made of metal, powder-coated. The inner tube has an O-ring on to slide and stay snugly inside. 510 hybrid mech cap, engraved. These dents fit in the outer tube. If you don’t have an atomizer ready to use on a hybrid mech mod, use the other mech cap with a positive pin, included in the package. The positive pin is spring-loaded. Now I have a beautiful mechanical tube mod, with non-hybrid connection. The tube looks seamless and is very enchanting to look at. Geekvape Tsunami RDA received the same surface treatment in this kit. You can replace the original wide bore drip tip for this reduction and use your own 510 mouthpiece. Personally, I like the original wide bore drip tip. It’s made of delrin, so it doesn’t get hot while vaping. Also it suits the atomizer well. I used my own 26Ga Twisted 316L coils. The resistance is about 0.38Ω/coil, which means 0.18Ω for this build. It’s not ideal to use on a mech mod, but as soon as I fire the coils up, the resistance grows up. I always recommend the ‘cold’ resistance to be 0.2Ω and higher. Better be safe than sorry. There is a massive Velocity deck here with a deep juice well underneath. Everything you know about the Tsunami RDA already. The airholes are large, the air comes from below. The top cap allows to set the air flow for a single- or dual coil build. The juice well holds about 1-2ml of juice, so you don’t have to drip that often. There’s nothing difficult about making a build on a Velocity deck. There’s enough space to put some massive coils in. The post holes are wide enough to fit almost any complicated wire in. The positive pin is nicely protruding, perfect to use on a hybrid mech mod. I cannot really find any cons to talk about… It’s the traditional Tsunami RDA, a little modified to fit today’s needs. The complete kit looks nice and seamless. There are some complaints about the fire button getting stuck. I recommend lubricating it using a droplet of glycerine or food-grade silicone. Not too much, just to dampen the surface. The venting holes are near the bottom. When the battery vents, the pressure will escape from around the positive contact, so it probably is wiser to insert it upside down. I’ll use Jellyfish cotton wicks. This cotton wicks the juice nicely and doesn’t malform the flavour. Try to get the cotton away from above the airholes. That way no juice should leak through the airholes. Geekvape Tsunami. The mod goes first. Cons? Doesn’t have any, does it? Insulated tube mod, two types of 510 threading (hybrid, non-hybrid), battery venting holes, easy to disassemble. I don’t like the circlip on the fire button. When cleaning it, I need a special tool to remove the circlip. Otherwise it’s great. The surface finish is well made, it’s obviously baked and durable. Now for the atomizer. Tsunami RDA. It has gone through some subtle modifications, all of them are improvements. A velocity-dripper as it should be. When you overdrip it, excess liquid will leak, that is unavoidable. There is no other unwanted leakage, no condensation, no residue when reattaching the top cap. I like the wide bore drip tip which is the most suitable for this kind of vaping. I can recommend it to newcomers to mechanical vaping. Mostly if you are afraid of the hybrid connection, or that your atty has its positive pin not protruded enough. Always keep your resistance above 0.2Ω when vaping on a mechanical mod. Always think about your safety. 9 out of 10 points. The only con for me is the circlip on the fire button. Otherwise, for a Chinese kit it’s a great device. Thank you for watching, have a nice morning, noon or evening, never smoke cigarettes, enjoy your life and stay cool. CYA! Subz bai H3rb
