Whats up vape fam?
I was recently sent the Kylin 2 rta, from vandyvape as part of the customers first program. I figured I would pass on my opinions to the ELR fam, in case your in the market for a new rta or just curious about whats coming out. First off this is just my opinion, based entirely on my experience over the last few days ive been using it.
So what do I think about it? To summarize it into a single statement I would say this tank is a major improvement to the previous kylins, I love it! I have the kylin mini as well, its a great single coil rta but had a few shortcomings. The mini was much better than the OG at least (which some had leaking issues as well) because of the airflow design. The new kylin 2 has the same airflow as the mini, in dual coil now, major plus!
The Kylin starts off at 24mm at the base and expands to 26mm (30mm glass width) pictured with the Kylin mini and on the double barrel v2.1 for reference
Heres what I liked… The build deck is awesome, the screws were moved to the sides so no more twisted legs. It is a postless style deck (coily tool included) and can be run in dual coil or a nice fat single coil. I like how they spread the post holes farther apart as well. You can fit a 10mm long coil easily (12mm max width between post holes). There is plenty of airflow here, its smooth across the board too. The flavor is outstanding! Its up there with the best of em and it wicks like a champ. Hasn’t leaked a drop since I got it. In the performance dept this tank is a sure winner and I’m really liking this sliding topcap, refills are quick and easy.

Heres what I didnt like… not much really. Im digging deep just to come up with some cons. I guess the main thing is the wicking. You have to really thin out the wicks to get them to fit into the channel. You have to thin down two wicks into the size of one. If your a regular rta user this wont be anything new, but if your new to rtas it will take some practice. One thing to mention is In dual coil, because the chamber is small, you cant fit anything wider than a 3mm ID coil, nothing major. The only other thing is the airflow is kind of loud, it doesnt whistle at all but its not quiet either.
Overall this is a very good rta, one of the better options out there. Tons of flavor, easy to fill and it looks great. From what I hear stores should have these soon, If your looking for a good rta make sure you check these out. Would I go out and spend my money to buy one of these? Absolutely! VV did a good job of addressing all the issues from the previous releases. If you liked the kylin before you will love this one
