Ok so as promised i said id write a 1st person review of the stuff i got in my bag from TW
So here it is, this review is based on my own experiences and views of the products supplied by TW, this is by no means the only representation of the products provided by TW as others may experience different results that will/may vary from my own. This is just a personal guide and outline into the use of some of TW's products as listed below.
Ok so this is what was in the bag....
2 x Dual Coil Cartos
1 x 5ml Red Bullion concentrate
1 x 5ml Tutti Frutti concentrate
1 x 5ml Hiton concentrate
1 x 5ml American Red contentrate
30ml 36mg Eliquid
Dual Coil Tank system 3.5ml
1 x 1000mah Tornado Battery
510 - 4081 adapter
2 x Drip tips
Right so, here is a close up pic of the DCT + Other bits
The build quality of all these bits are super, cannot fault them, as soon as they come out of the boxes you know its well made and money well spent. So i filled the DC that came with the DCT system with some RY4 from a UK brand that would only burn in my CE3s, hoping that it would be ok in the DC's, well i primed as described (easy peasy) filled the tank left it to sit for 15mins, screwed it altogether, looked at it and thought 'yes, this is just what i wanted, looks the DOGS DANGLY bits' took a drag on it......WOW......how awful is this?! It was totally horrible NOT totally wicked (please dont be put off READ ON
So, because it was liquid i knew wasnt too good of a quality i wasnt too disspointed and tried again, so i mixed up some 24mg Tobacco flavour (TW Red label original) primed the cart, oh i must point out, washing the tank is easy, i ran some warm/hot water through it, left it to dry and fantastic ready to go! So anyway, screwed this altogther, again admiring just how good this thing looks HOPING and PRAYING that it would work, took a draw on it.....WOW.....how good is this?! I was amazed and happy that i finally had a tank system that worked!
So i sat and vaped like mad and made myself feel a little queezy, but none the less enjoyed every bit of it. I only 1/2 filled the tank which i still have (as seen in the pics). So that was 1st impressions.....
TH - Throat Hit, this is good, and in comparison to the CE3's quite comparable, this was a VERY important factor for me, as a 40 cig a day smoker, this was VERY VERY important and its this sensation that leaves me feeling satisfied. This got a tick from me!
If you want REALLY Strong TH then i would opt for the CE3, but the DCT does still come up well in this area. 9/10
Vapor - Vapor production IMO is a little down compared to the CE3s, but this is not a bad thing (im using a mix of 75/25 PG/VG) but if vapor is up-most important, then i wouldn't PERSONALLY recommend this product and i would stick with something else. BUT the vapor it does produce from the mix i use is very good, its more 'realistic' to a cigarette than any other carto ive used. This again, for me is important. 8/10
Flavour - Again very good and in comparison to a CE3 i really dont think you'd notice much difference. Good strong flavour and in comparison to the CE3 only down a little bit, but still very good. 9/10
The image below is a size comparison between a Tornado 1000mah + DCT (on the left) and a Screwdriver MK2 with a CE3 (on the right). As you can see, its a lot slimmer, and the tank (3.5ml) isnt that bulky in comparison, overall i think the DCT looks far better than the CE3s on any battery. The DCT + Battery feel really nice in the hand, the only down side (and its petty but im finding it HARD to FAULT THE DCT LOL) is the Metal Drip Tip gets really cold really quick, bit of a shock to the lips (this is easily solved by changing the drip tip though).
Ok, so some down sides, if you like the TW logo, it rubs off fairly quickly (see image below) i have now rubbed it off completly and only been using it 3 hours or so......(again, not eveyone will see this as a bad thing!)
The hole in the cartos I think they are a little small, could do with either a bigger hole or an extra hole just to induce more wicking of liquid since i am having problems with this, cold draws work OK but thats it, to get a good amount of juice in, i remove the DCT, put my finger over the battery hole and take a few cold draws, this takes more liquid in and saturates the filling better, bit of a pain to do, but it works (nothing is without fault
Ok so thats my points on the DCT. Overall id give it a 9/10 the only reason it didnt get a 10 is the wicking problem
Everything else is spot on!
Eliquid Concentrates, these reviews are again my own personal opinion on the flavours i recieved from TW. All these were tested with fresh CE3s on a Screwdriver @ 3.7v fresh charged battery.
Red bull-ion - Mixed 24mg 75/25 (PG/VG) with 10% red bull-ion, tastes just like red bull, the aroma from the juice in the bottle is fantastic and is really authentic, vapes like a dream and tastes very good. Now, this is not something i could vape all day, and nor does it fulfill my needs, im certainly a tobacco kinda guy. The flavour is good and strong, but a little sickly for me.
Tutti Frutti - Same mix as above, very good flavour, smells like the chewing gum. Little sickly for me again, and not really satisfying, but as a fruity flavour its perfect, if thats your thing i think you will love this flavour! Lilac in colour and mixes down into a light purple colour.
American Red - Now, i was looking forward to this, but found myself a little disspointed with the outcome of the taste test. It tasted quite like coffee, and not what i expected really. The flavour is quite strong, so i tried it 1st at a mix of 10% then went down to 5% with the same flavour, just not as strong.
Hilton - I was again hoping this to be good, but found it VERY similar to the American Red. It became sickly after just a few draws. Flavour wise, quite smokey, well rounded and wouldnt really attribute it to a 'Tobacco' as such, more of a coffee flavour.
Again, the problem with flavour reviews, everyone has different taste, this is just my own interpretation of the flavours.
Ill be posting in the 'Trade' section with a few items that i have, that i will not use, if you are interested please get back to me.
I hope this review servces you well in making your decision on purchasing a DCT
Im sure you will come to love it, just like i did. I never had any luck with 'Cartos' other than CE3s and this has totally changed my outlook on them
Well done TW on another amazing product!
