Long time no see. I know I have been MIA for a while (life calls), but I recently got around to getting some new vape gear and both of these were purchased. I have had them both for about a week now and reading through this entire thread I want to chime in on my own experiences with both tanks.
Note: I have consistently used the same build for a week in each tank. 3mm ID, 8 wraps G1 Ti, minimally spaced, right around 0.14Ω.
- I thought that the other deck included was just an extra deck, so I have only used the deck that has the smaller wicking holes.
- I have had very minimal leaking issues. I sometimes get juice in-between the air control ring and the atomizer and when I close it to fill, the juice will come out of the wholes as I turn it since there is build-up under the ring.
- I wick it just like I would for any other RDA, angled cut wicks towards the deck posts and then tucked under the coils over the wicking holes. No issues leaking while filling it standing up with the juice flow closed.
- Sits flush on my mods and I have no wobbling like I have with other removable deck RDTA's.
- Flavor and vapor on this thing is immaculate. I have vaped it at 200W on my Cuboid and holy vapor, it makes me choke and I like really dense vapes.
Aromamizer Supreme RDTA:
- Its main flaw is that the one I received has an excessive amount of wobble. This is due to an incorrect o-ring being placed around the removable build deck. Mine is so loose that if I hold the tank upright and remove the bottom collar, the deck will fall out. I have read other reviews where people have stated that their deck took some force to pull out, it was not as loose as mine. Visually inspecting the o-ring around the deck and I can clearly see that the o-ring is way to thin. This o-ring needs to be the same size, but thicker in order to create the appropriate seal.
- Another flaw I have found is that the threaded 510 connector is slightly shorter (mm's) than the Boreas. It will fire on my eVic Mini, but gives an undesired vape from my Cuboid. Whereas the Boreas has no problem firing on any mod I own. I get a very dense vape on the eVic Mini whereas the Cuboid gives me a weak vape because the atomizer does not make a good connection on the 510.
- There is a major issue with juice getting between the juice flow collar and the air control collar. Every time I move either of the collars, juice comes out in-between all of the collars on the atomizer. If I grab the air control collar and squeeze it slightly, I see a ton of juice build up inside the different steps that aren't being used to control the airflow and I must wipe it out.
- Not so much of an issue, as I feel this could be fixed with replacing the drip tip, but what's the point of including one then? My atomizer gets to a point if I vape on it a lot that it will gurgle once there is a build up of liquid inside the drip tip.
- The juice control really does work, not a drop of liquid gets through if it is closed.
- There are a few very, very tiny pieces that you need to be wary of if you are going to do a complete break down to this tank.
- I still feel like this tank is holding back something, I just can't put my finger on it.
- Mine gets hot quicker than most tanks I own.
I have tried both of these tanks at 200W and the Boreas stood out by a long shot to me. It did not get hot in 5 vapes at 200W at about 3 second pulls, the Supreme RDTA on the other hand was the hottest I have ever felt an atomizer. Also the airflow on the Boreas may be a little much for some compared to the Supreme RDTA (at least I feel like it's much bigger). The reason the airflow is this excessive is so that the atomizer can handle excessive vapor and heat. The flavor was still pretty good at 200W on the Boreas and pretty muted on the Supreme.
All in all, the build quality of each is pretty good. The one thing that stands out to me is the threads on the Boreas, very smooth, feels like butter.
Maybe I just got unlucky and my Supreme RDTA didn't come from a good batch. I really dig the innovations of both tanks. The Boreas has my pick though if I were going to go out and buy one or the other since out of the box I didn't have to deal with any issues.
