It looks like the pod trend continues but today we take a look at a pod system that is not just another pod system its more of an AI owed this one is called Tauron X by Thunderhead creations and it comes in two flavors the regular version with coil heads and the rebuildable version which will come with a separate coil head instead would still no matter which version you purchase really you will still be able to buy the other pod and the replacement coil heads and vice-versa.
Unboxing the regular version that takes replaceable coil heads we find the device with the pod already assembled but no coil head inside on the right we get a box which contains two replaceable coil heads also the micro USB charging cable and a little silicon lanyard and last but not least a little bag with an adapter if you want to use the PAL 2 or the aspire BVC coil heads a quality control certificate and a warranty Card no user manual and of course when we unbox the rebuild-able edition we also find the device this happens to be the black color but instead it will come with the rebuild-able section already inside.
The pod and on the right you have the box where you will find a plastic space this is actually a really nice inclusion and you will see later what this thing is for it will also bring you the micro USB charging cable in the same kind of land yard and it’s kind of nice the lanyard will actually match the color of the device you buy additionally there also a Philips head screwdriver as well for the bill deck and last but not least no user manual but the same bag with spare O-rings a spare screws quality control certificate warranty card and a few pre reps pastes coils and cotton as well.
Huge Pro for the fact that they come to label it properly with all the specs in material oh there’s also an Allen driver inside by the way if you want to take apart the pod yes you can take apart the pod so this is actually a very interesting device both of them they are virtually the same device just in a different configuration with different pods one takes replaceable coil heads and the other has an RBI the RBA and the coil heads aren’t interchangeable meaning the RBA pod can’t take replaceable coil heads and vice versa but no matter which version you end up buying the other option will also be sold separately as well as replaceable coil heads.
I’m going to open this cap and fill it up fill it all the way up just don’t forget to close the fill cap, in the end, this is actually a very small fill cap if you will have large fingers you may have some serious trouble screwing and unscrewing this cap let me place the pod back to the device and let’s go over the features under these on this device by the way the port either one of the pods the one that takes replaceable coil heads or the one that takes the RBI either one of the pods fits either way now those are going to be the Air Flow Intake slots.
There’s one on each side and they actually match on both versions the one with replaceable coil heads and the one with the RBA they both match the airflow no matter which airflow we choose, of course, now I close the other side but those airflow slots match the airflow inside.
When you have the pod assemble it onto the device and we have a screen yay its super small and some of you are going to have a very hard time seeing things on the screen but we do have a screen and variable wattage we also have five clicks on five clicks off to turn the device on and to turn the device off and then, of course, we have the up and down buttons all these buttons protrude about the same even though the fire button is a little wider than the up and down buttons they are all click but a very silent click and a little mushy to all about the same.
Certainly better than many other built-in 1900 systems in iOS out there so I like the form factor. I love the color selection especially the white and in the gold logo isn’t the gold plated or the gold color logo isn’t too big or intrusive the option for coil heads are rebuildable is option the rebuildable option is awesome an easy more so for the plastic razor adapter included the pod stays in place secure the top filled part is super convenient the variable wattage and control screen even though way too small and masked these days what you get for the price is just an overall good deal.
But on the downside still no material mentioned for the replaceable coil heads the drip tip even though close to 510 standard it is still proprietary and does reduce the airflow a lot more than the airflow Offered underneath on the airflow adjustment ring with both of these pods the charging port still type B macro instead of type C the latest standard the screen is very tiny and last but not least the placement of the fire button there was also always a concern to me with the lost vapor Ryan and how you have to kind of bend over your finger to press it judging by how the PCB is assembled inside in the space available they could have designed the fire button.
A lot higher and distant from the up and down buttons talking about the up and down buttons tender had creations please add the ability to lock those alone and still be able to vape also judging by the space inside and by how beefy these pods are more so the rebuildable one I think it could have been designed a little better and more efficiently making it hold more liquid than it does just my two cents if I was to write this one I would give it a beep maybe a b-plus if it had the ability to lock them up and down buttons only but also if the fire button was built a little higher up and also if the drip tip was good and matching the airflow on the airflow adjustment ring.
