Noob Review of Eleaf Amnis iStick

#1

I won this Eleaf Amnis iStick from a contest that was held in ELR Forum. First of all, I want to thank @heaven_gifts for the contest and theprize. However, this will not be clouding my judgement on this review.

PACKAGING :

It have a standard packaging for the kit, with the picture of the kit on the front and the content written on the back. There was a plastic seal that said this kit was sent to me as a sample on it, but I ripped it when I open it and threw it away.

Sliding out the cardboard cover, you’ll have the box that have Eleaf written on top, and nothing else. Simplicity is sometimes better. I like that.

Opening the box, you’ll have the kit sitting on top of two cutouts on foam, one for the mod, one for the tank.

Underneath the foam, you’ll find a usb cable, a plastic bag with O rings, a spare coil, 2 spares for the juice hole seal, manuals for the mod and for the tank. The manuals are written in English, French, Danish, Dutch, Japanese, German, Spanish, Russian, Italian, Greek, Polish, Finnish, Swedish, Czech, Romanian and Portuguese.

Content of box

  • 1 x iStick Amnis
  • 1 x GS Drive Atomizer
  • 1 x GS Air M 0.35 Ohm Head
  • 1 x GS Air 0.75 Ohm Head

  • 1 x Spare parts

THE MOD :

The Eleaf Amnis iStick mod is a simple mechanical mod with some safety features added, with normal operation. 5 clicks to turn on and 5 clicks to turn off, powered by a 900 MAH Battery

It looks slick, with only a small marking on one side, good spring loaded 510 connector, and a usb connector underneath.

Resistance range 0,15 – 3 Ohm

Safety features :

Atomizer protection (max 15 seconds of inhale)

Short circuit protection (if short circuit happened before inhale, light blinks 5 times, 3 times if happened during inhale. Both will automatically cut the output)

Low voltage protection (when battery voltage drop lower than 3,3 V, light blinks 40 times and cut the output)

Green light shows 100 – 60% battery capacity

Orange light shows 60 – 30% battery capacity

Blue light shows 30 – 10% battery capacity

Red light shows less than 10% battery capacity

Unless something is wrong, the light would only show when you pressed the fire button.

THE TANK :

Top fill, press and slide to fill. It work great, I like this feature.

You could take apart the bottom part to change the coil, take off the drip tip, and that’s about it. You couldn’t take apart anything else. The glass is press fit and if you break it, that’s it.

The coils are GS Air M 0,35W which is mesh and GS Air 0,75W made of Kanthal.

VAPE EXPERIENCE

The GS Air M 0,35W is a mesh coil, already inside the tank. However, the one that I got leaks. Good (not great) flavor when it worked though. Replaced it soon after with the GS Air 0,75W which is kanthal coil. This one, not as good a flavor as the mesh, but it didn’t leak. But the spit back though… Maybe I just don’t know how to vape this thing?

During the week that I use this kit, it work as normal as possible. What I mean by that is, aside from the mesh coil leaks, there’s no surprises. It just works. It took about an hour to charge from red light blinking. It’s not bad for a carry around mod, I used it when I rode around on my scooter to and from work, it held up quite a long while.

THOUGHTS

1 set of O rings spare and 2 juice hole seals spare is definitely great.

Great size for a carry around mod, and it’s shaped well.

It’s too bad that the mesh coil that I got was faulty.

If the light could stay on for at least 3 seconds after I inhale, that would be better. I could check the battery level while I vape.

If only there’s a spare glass, and I could actually took the tank apart…

Would I buy this kit if I lost it or it stopped working? Maybe not. But I would recommend it to anyone trying to stop smoking because of it’s ease of use.

You could get this kit here https://www.heavengifts.com/product/Eleaf-iStick-Amnis-Kit.html for the listed price of US$41.13. They have a 33% discount right now, lowering the price to US$27.42.

Again, I would like to thank @Heaven_Gifts for the contest. And thank you everyone for reading this.

Wow, @delltrapp that was quite a good review. I don’t think I’d ever be in the market for this, but I read your entire review anyway. I think you should just change the title to “Eleaf Amnis iStick review by delltrapp”.

Have you had issues with the top of the tank falling apart?

It didn’t have time to fall apart. It leaks after 3 weeks no matter what coil I put in. Using a clone mtl tank with high resistance and low wattage coil now.

Edit sorry I forgot to tag you @Dan_the_Man

So your not using the tank that came with it but you are using the little mod?

I would like to get a hold of that tank if that is possible. Maybe a trade or something?

I’m in Indonesia, @Dan_the_Man , the cost of delivery would be more than the price of the gs tank.
