It's all in the title, absolutely top noch flavour, best I've had in 5 years. Simple to wick, extremely forgiving and easy to build on too. Good quality all round and its my 4th one, and all of them are still working fine, that says it all
The Dovpo x Vaping Bogan BLOTTO RTA
Received my new tank from ecigone on Sunday. I was quite eager to get this tank up amnd running.
As you can see standard packaging with the usual contents apart from a very nifty bottle opener.
I stripped the Blotto down as far as I could and put it through the ultrasonic cleaner. It strips down pretty well and I had no problems.
As you can see from the photo the deck is built to house two coils. There are two airflow towers that direct airflow from top, side and below. There is not a lot of room especially for big hefty coils. The posts for taking the coils are at an angle. This makes fitting the coils a wee bit tricky however after a few goes I had it sorted. I clipped the legs of the two coils to 4.5mm, this seemed to give enough room between coils. As you can see the coils read 0.30ohms.
Wicking the tank I used Japanese cotton. I teased it out so that the tails were about 50% of the original cotton thickness. I then combed the two wicks on each side together and then cut them so they appear looking vertically down onto the build deck as a dull arrowhead. I do this with all my wicking and it seems to be the best method (well for me anyway). I left the arrowhead of my wick come below the porthole level into the well of the deck but not touching the bottom of the well.
I gave the wicks, coils a good soaking in my home mixed 75vg/25pg Dawn Slush liquid. I don’t use nicotine.
I rebuilt the tank filled to half full and gave it ten minutes to soak. I paired it with a Vaporesso Revenger X mod.
I started off at 30w and half open airflow. Good but nothing special. I then slowly cranked it up to it’s current level of 70w. Above sixty watt it really started delivering on flavour and clouds.
Two Days Later
Today I started having leakage issues when I filled the tank full. It wasn’t pouring out but a slow steady leakage (ok Bourdain’s quote in my head here, for those who don’t know he had a fixation with anal leakage).
My plan tonight is to strip down the tank and try a slightly different wicking.
So my overall view, leakage apart. I have a number of rta’s including Geekvapes Zeus and Zeus X, Wotofo’s Serpent SMM, Steam Crave’s Aromatizer V2. The flavour from this rates for me about 8/10 in the upper end of my other tanks. Cloud value again I would have to put it 8/10. This tank will not go into the box marked ‘Rejects’ or ‘To be investigated more thoroughly at later date.’
As always Ecigone allowing for Covid issues quick and efficient.
Well folks that’s my view of the Dovpo x Vaping Bogan BLOTTO RTA.
Some people will agree with me, some will not and some will think I am a numpty.
I have already reviewed this tank and stand by it but don't get the purple as the paint started chipping everywhere on mine almost straight away and that much came off on the top I was worried it would go down into the build deck! So I had to strip it I now have a silver tank which still looks good with the black inside but its a lot of hassle I would just advise buying a different colour.
Ecigone are absolutely the best suppliers yet, service is first class, the Amazon delivery is working very well, tank arrived the very next day. The tank itself is fantastic, airflow is restricted but you soon get very used to it, the flavour is mind blowing, even after a few days use. BUT, it leaks, badly, and not from the airflow. It leaks from the base and / or the 510 pin, I've no idea which. It's a terrible shame because the build quality, ease of building and wicking and the flavour/clouds this thing chucks out is absolutely phenomenal. I'm a massive fan of the Bogan, but something is wrong here, which is a shame.
The Blotto is now in the 'don't use every again' drawer!
Nice tank, airflow to coil spot on, holds a ton of Juice and provides top flavour. Bubble glass can slip of o ring but seats after a tanks worth. Colour a bit different but suits various mods, Jackaroo with coloured panels works well.
