My take on the Boreas.
Late in the game I know. TheRabidWeasel sent me his. It seems he didn't care for it. LUCKY ME! I LOVE THIS TANK! THANK YOU RABID!
Now on to my experiences with it.
After receiving it, I left Rabid's coils in it, 22ga Ti .06 ohm. I cleaned the tank to purge old juice and gave it a bath in the USC with PGA. Did a light dry fire of the coils, brushed them off, wicked it with a hemp sample Rabid was very kind to include and off to the races. Hemp in it's own right is a unique experience, said to outlast the coil being way beyond being covered in gunk. I Wicked it fairly tight, trimmed the wick to just hit the juice holes (ala pancake wicking method), assembled the tank, filled it, a very small amount of leaking measured in drops. Not too shabby....If you can build an Aromamizer, you can build this thing. It's a snap.
Now the bad, I see why Rabid didn't like it. I was getting very little vapor production and hardly any flavor, and this from my beloved Cream Dragon V8. Poked around here a bit to find the culprit, and yep culprit found...., 2mm juice hole deck. I pulled the 22ga and did a 24ga build on 2.5mm post at about .12 ohms ( a more typical A-mizer build for me). Much Much better....nearly identical to the Aromamizer V1 in both flavor and vapor production, but this thing can do better dammit, I just know it.
So, I built the 2.5mm juice hole deck, but this time reverting back to 8 wraps each of 22ga Ti around a 3mm rod that clocks in at .08 ohm. Ideal considering the limitations of the DNA 200. I proceeded to wick it (with hemp again) and back in the race. OH BOY! THIS IS IT! Probably the densest vapor I have ever seen from any tank, flavor out the @Ozo (wiseasscrackintended)
For me, the jury is still out for the hemp wicking. I see promise in it, but considering I still have Cotton Bacon and about 500 large Puff OCC cotton pads, Rayon etc....I'm set for wicking....if I can keep the misses from using my cotton pads to remove her warpaint that is....anyway, I digress.
What a nice piece of vaping heaven we have in this tank. "One mans trash, another man's treasure."
I don't know if I will pull trigger on the Aromamizer Supreme, but danged sure may choose to purchase a couple or 5 more Boreas tanks. What is not to like!
The build quality of this tank is superb!
PS. EVERY RTA should come with 2 build decks REGARDLESS of design. Juice flow control or otherwise. That is just as handy as a shirt pocket.
