I received this Berserker V1.5 MTL RTA free of charge directly from Vandy Vape for the purpose of this review. Regardless of this, it will not color my opinion on this review in any way, shape or form.
This came in a sample box that had a sticker on it that says «special for trial-production» and it does also say «sample» several places on it. So the retail package is going to be something we have seen from Vandy Vape before. I will despite that show the box it came in.
It is a 24 mm single coil MTL RTA made in collaboration between Vandy Vape and Alex Vapers MD. This isn’t the first device they have made together and I’m sure it won’t be the last one either.
It is a nice looking RTA and as always with Vandy Vape it is well machined and well built and I haven’t managed to find any flaws on it at all.
As I said before, it is a single coil MTL RTA and the posts aren’t innovative in any way, actually a bit simple, but they work. You got one post on each side of the deck which leaves the coil sitting in the middle.
The posts, as they are, work as intended, they do hold the coil nice and snug in place and it is really easy to build and wick, and so far I haven’t experienced any leaking at all, which pleases me a lot.
It comes with a glass tank section and in the package you will find another tank section made out of steel in the same color as the rest of the RTA, and in this case that is black. With the steel tank attached it does look good, but it makes it kinda hard to see any juice level at all. Perhaps a price to pay for looks.
The stepped part of the drip tip is actually 510 sized where it sits in the top cap, the Ultem part is threaded and proprietary and it does come with an additional threaded one in black. It does also have a spare black 510 drip tip in the package made out of delrin.
I have tried it with a few of the Furai 510 drip tips I got from Cthulhu MOD and they all sit nice and snug on the RTA and kinda changes the overall look of it.
To fill it up with liquid you just take the top cap off and fill it up through the two kidney shaped filling slots on the top. They are big enough to allow you to use Gorilla bottles as well as unicorn or twist cap bottles. With the glass tank section it holds 2.5 ml and with the metal tank section it holds 3 ml, but be aware that you won’t see the juice level with it on.
The airflow got 5 different sized air holes ranging from 1 mm, 1.2 mm, 1.4 mm, 1.6 mm and up to 1.8 mm and if you use the largest air hole you got a draw that might be called a restricted DL. The smallest air hole is definitely a MTL draw and I would say a restricted one as well. It shouldn’t be any problem for the MTL vapers out there to find a setting to their liking with it.
The airflow adjustment ring is easy to move around to adjust the airflow, it’s not like it’s moving by itself, it does have some resistance to it and I like the feel of it. The airflow itself is actually what I would call buttery smooth and I haven’t experienced any noise in the time I have vaped on it.
Another thing with the airflow is that it comes up underneath the coil to make sure you get good flavor out of it. And I must say that it doesn’t disappoint when it comes to flavor and I would say that I get good flavor out of it.
It is a well built MTL RTA and an upgrade from the first one since this one is named V1.5. I never tried the first one so I can’t do a comparison between the two, but I know that this one is quite good, and I am sure lots of MTL vapers out there will like how this one performs.
Can I recommend it to others?
If you are into MTL vaping and in the market for a new device I wouldn’t hesitate to get this one. It does deliver on flavor, meaning that you get good flavor out of it. It is well built and it doesn’t look bad either.
