The Argus XT field: sturdy and useful
The Argus is available in two variations: the MT with a built-in 3000 mA h battery, and the XT we’ve examined right here, which comes with a 21700 or 18650 battery. The utmost energy is 100W for the primary ones, and 80W for the second ones.
The Argus XT is comfy to carry and ergonomic. The leather-look insert is sort of thick and feels extra natural to the contact. Total, it’s end is superb. The one factor we didn’t like was the slight play of the set off button in its housing, and the duvet which appeared plasticky which is a disgrace as a result of the field is definitely made from an alloy.
What’s doubtlessly extra annoying is the robust odor the field offers off. It smells a bit like machine oil, however we are able to’t see any hint of oil. That brings us neatly onto testing the field’s resistance. Being IP68 licensed, it’s presupposed to be water, mud and shock resistant. A rinse underneath the faucet, a wash with a soapy sponge and a radical rinse left the field smelling like clear dishes – and nothing extra. Even after this therapy it labored completely and the battery compartment was nonetheless dry.
The battery compartment is simple to open – simply slide the little tab on the door. This mechanism is easy-to-use and appears strong sufficient to final. Though utilizing a 18650 battery means it’s a must to use the adapter equipped, the field can truly recognise which battery you’re utilizing.
The built-in USB-C port means you possibly can recharge your Argus XT quick. Voopoo has introduced 3 A charging which might imply a full cost for many batteries in about an hour. That’s helpful if you happen to’re brief on time, however slower charging with an exterior charger is healthier for battery life in the long run.
The spotlight for us needs to be the change on the highest of the field. It’s just below the atomizer and has three settings. It’s sufficiently big to make use of simply, however flush sufficient to the floor that you simply gained’t press it accidentally, for instance if it’s in your pocket.
Transferring the change to the left locks all the controls. Transferring it to the precise locks the settings buttons however nonetheless lets you vape. To regulate any settings, simply transfer it into the centre. It’s straightforward, intuitive and remarkably useful: proper to vape, left for in your pocket and centre to regulate the settings.
You entry the menu by urgent each settings buttons on the similar time, which is simple as a result of they’re laid as in the event that they have been just one button. The vape mode setting allows you to select between “Good” mode, which limits your energy vary relying on the coil you’re utilizing, “RBA” mode, which helps you to regulate the ability freely between 5W and 100W (80W with a 18650 battery), “Turbo” mode, which delivers 25% extra energy throughout the first second of a puff, and “TC” mode for temperature management if you’re utilizing wires made from titanium, nickel or chrome steel.
With the ability to select the ability stage in “Good” mode is sensible if you happen to’re utilizing the model’s personal coils, however probably not if you happen to’re utilizing an atomiser by one other model. It’s nonetheless helpful although, as having the ability to restrict the out there energy vary provides a stage of safety that’s all the time useful.
The field additionally allows you to set the show brightness and show time, and even has a puff counter.
The MAAT Tank revisited and two new coils
The “MAAT Tank New” is the newest model of … er… the Maat Tank. If you happen to didn’t guess that one, to not fear. You’ve in all probability been busier searching the window than listening at school.
The MAAT Tank New is big, however that’s what permits its tank to carry a whopping 6.5ml of liquid. This capability is admittedly helpful, as a result of it’s clearly designed for making huge clouds. The coils it comes with are designed for simply that. The 0.15 ohm TTP DM1 is beneficial for 70W vaping, and the 0.2 ohm TTP DM2 is for 50W vaping.
Putting in the coil within the atomizer is a breeze. You simply unscrew the bottom, match the coil into its housing and screw all of it again collectively.
The drip tip has been particularly designed for this mannequin and is a compromise between the 510 and the 810. It appears quite a bit like a normal 810, so it’s fairly good and effectively tailored to this vaping model.
You regulate the air consumption by sliding the lever on the base of the atomiser. It’s straightforward to make use of and correct, however as soon as it’s in place it gained’t budge. It’s an excellent instance of high quality machining.
The air consumption itself is enjoyable and pretty quiet. Whichever means you have a look at it, it’s fairly ethereal which fits the very open direct draw for this vape. These new coils ship a vape that’s not too scorching and packs a flavour punch.
To fill it, unscrew the highest 1 / 4 flip to disclose the silicon seal masking the highest of the clearomizer. The 2 small filling holes imply it’s a must to use a bottle with a tremendous tip. However with a bit of care you possibly can lower away the skinny silicon membrane to entry the bigger opening of the tank itself. Meaning you need to use any bottle with ease, with out compromising the leak tightness of the atomiser.
The MT package is much like the XT package however has a built-in 3000 mAh battery.
