OBS Crius II RTA Dual Coil
Tuesday, May 8, 2018
I won this RTA from <https://www.heavengifts.com/product/OBS-Crius-2-RTA-Dual-Coil.html and proud to do this review, my first review so be nice !!!.
The OBS box it came in is top notch, easy to get into with pull strap. The RTA was clean, no machine oil or residue showing, I washed it in hot water anyway and blow dried it.
The unit came with a accessories box containing organic cotton, spare O-rings, spare glass tube, screwdriver, 2 premade coils 3mm inside dia., a manual.
The unit I received was matt black with semi swirls of grey drip tip, the color finish is superb and has longevity written all over it. The looks of the tank is traditional with no unpleasant markings , very clean lines with engraving on the inside deck chamber.
Size: 25mm x 57mm
Material: 304 stainless steel + pyrex glass
Thread: Gold-plated 510 connection
I have been testing this RTA for about 3 weeks and it has been pure pleasure and a lil behind schedule of when I wanted to have it complete, but!!
I will start with the cons : the Name, I wish they could have least named it after Crius’s father Uranus or the Titan Crius. A spare screw for the deck, if by chance you lose the one it came with, it might be toublesome to find another. The Screwdriver, does not fit the screw correctly, I had to use a 3way Geekvape screwdriver, fits nice and tight. The drip tip is very nice I love it, but
The O-rings are sloppy, I have lost it many times, ended up looking in my 510 drip tip collection, found the perfect one, I think it came off, one of kayfuns. The chrome plated one, I just set in there for looks, not bad tho, With the red O-rings I can pick the tank up without coming off, and leave it in your pocket and stay there, also comes off with right amount of tension.
Easy top side refill
Adjustable bottom airflow
Juice flow control
Dual coil deck with high-tech Zirconia
Detachable structure for cleaning
The machining is Top Notch, top fill cap, perfect tolerance. The juice flow and air flow control also perfect. Airflow is quiet and smooth at any settings, no whistling.
As of today, This RTA is my go to tank and will be a contender for most that try it.
It sits in the Queen position, because it has all the moves. Flavor is excellent, coil placement is user friendly, no measuring or guessing, install coils, both sides, hold up against wall, tighten, cut legs off, pull back with correct shaft size. The coils that came with it are the perfect size 3mm ID, the width, about 5 wraps, is the same as the width of the square/rectangular air holes.
These are some coils I built, just twisted 28ga. 316L 5 wrap, any wider could-would be a waste, to me,. The airflow comes straight up to the coil, travels both sides of the coil, and out the doomed chamber, the solid wall keeps the air from bouncing around, concentrating on the coils for better flavor.
As with all RTA’s wicking is important, there is some forgiveness, but not much,. To much or stuffing your wick will give you dry hits, comb your tails out, cut at an angle in a bowtie profile.
Lightly settle your wick just on top of the juice holes in a damming method. Don’t want any resistance in juice holes or your wicks crammed to the bottom of your juice wells.
After you wick it a couple of times you will find the sweetspot.
And also I have had no leaking, if you overfill, it will leak, I always fill a lil over 3/4 of the way. Vacuum is created better with juice flow control closed when filling, after filled, close top fill cap. Than open juice flow control and you will see bubbles rising. If not you may have stuffed cotton in to much.
EVERYDAY USE AND RESULTS
I did a complete tolerance and run out test and found no discrepancies. I have took it, on the go test, no leaks, only the drip tip not holding in place (that was fixed), I have took it to the shop and worked with it, dropping it twice by accident with my Tesla Punk 220w, no damage. I have fell asleep with it on the commode and dropped it, no damage. So I would say it is pretty tough RTA.
WOULD I RECOMMEND THIS
Absolutely, I want to get another in blue or gunmetal.
