Vaporesso Drizzle Vape Review: A Great MTL Mod fo’ Shizzle
Vaporesso is fast becoming a standard-bearer in the vaping industry. They consistently put out great products that appeal to different vapers; anyone who’s used a Tarot Nano or anything really from their Nebula line knows what I’m talking about.
Vaporesso is a manufacturer that emphasizes performance and design (they make their own circuit boards, for Christ’s sakes!) so their mods express that commitment to details and technical superiority. With that said, however, the Vaporesso Drizzle aims for a particular niche in the vaping community, and that is MTL vapers, which is another great thing about Vaporesso.
The Drizzle is a tube device with a 1000 mAh battery that comes in standard black or black with stainless steel features. The entire kit also comes with two proprietary coils from Vaporesso, a ceramic coil with stainless steel wiring and an EUC (Eco Universal Coils) with Clapton coil wires.
The inclusion of two distinct coils allows for vapers to switch and choose between direct-to-lung and mouth-to-lung vaping, which was something I appreciated from Vaporesso. I like it when companies encourage a little bit of experimentation on the customer’s part. It shows they are interested in your learning more about the wider vaping world.
What’s in the Box
Nothing too spectacular about the box itself. The front cover features a see-through slot so you can see the device up close. There’s also a diagram illustrating some of the more attractive qualities of the Vaporesso Drizzle, namely, the two types of coils inside, which makes it great for MTL vaping.
The entire box includes:
- The Drizzle battery (1000 mAh)
- One mini ceramic coil that resists up to 1.3 ohms
- One regular ECO coil that resists up to 1.4 ohms
- USB charging cable
- User’s manual
The tank on the Drizzle comes already installed, so it is also an all-in-one device intended for vape beginners as well. The Drizzle is one of Vaporesso’s more accessible mods.
It doesn’t feature any more modifiable aspects like wattage or temperature control, which Vaporesso mods like the Tarot Mini and Nano have in spades.
Vaporesso Drizzle: Looking It Over
The color schemes and designs of some of the Tarot Minis and Nanos just blew me away. They were so personalized and unique that you almost saw a designer slaving over the details. The Drizzle has no such impact, but that’s not a detrimental aspect.
The device is a standard tube mod. The firing button sits straight in the center of the battery. The airflow valve sits on the bottom of the mouthpiece and the top of the tank, and there is only one of them.
And that’s it, pretty much. The firing button does light up when you trigger it. It’s an easy five click activation and another five clicks to turn off the mod. Charging time with the Drizzle took about two hours, from the USB port located on the side of the mod.
The 1.8 tank is a top-fill tank, and it couldn’t be easier to fill since it does not feature any dedicated filling ports, it’s just wide open. The tank and the device itself is TPD compliant, so you shouldn’t expect any leakage or the plastic tank experiencing any breaks or cracks.
I expected to experience some troubling screwing off the drip tip to fill the tank since the airflow valve is also located right above the tank. I was surprised (and delighted) to find that the airflow valve locks into place and its various settings, so it makes unscrewing the base of the tank easier.
I didn’t fill the tank all the way to the brim, but I left a little space at the top. I used a 50/50 VG/PG e-juice, Hawk Sauce from Mt. Baker, with a 3 mg nicotine content just to see what the coils were capable of with an equal VG/PG content.
I installed the ceramic coil first, and it was easy to do; just unscrew the base of the tank and pop in the coil into its fitting. It was that easy. The ceramic coil at 1.3 ohms performed well. I got enough cloud production to blow out my cheeks but I wasn’t making any dragons envious, and the flavor profile was strong, given the intensity of flavors in my Hawk Sauce.
Swapping out the coil to the Clapton wire coil, I noticed that it worked well with the 50/50 e-juice that I let sit for at least ten minutes. The wicks were noticeably moist and ready to burst with vibrant flavor, which is what the Drizzle was created to do.
When it comes to the best device to compare the Drizzle to, it makes no sense to put them up against one of Vaporesso’s more specialized mods and kits like the Tarot or Nebula. The Smok eGo starter kit has a higher battery capacity, but it is not an AIO kit like the Drizzle. The Aspire Nautilus X is the next closest competitor since it is both an AIO and a starter kit.
The Nautilus X has two of the same U-tech coils, so there’s no real chance of changing up the ohms or swapping out the coils at all. The Drizzle, with those two distinct coils, allows for more vape exploration and lets people experiment with their vaping style.
Drizzle It On
I mentioned here, and in my review of the very similar Series S 17, that a manufacturer is dropping a new, unknown component in a starter kit, almost daring the new vaper to go deeper down the hole, is something of which I am a fan. JAC Vapor did it with the Series S, and now, Vaporesso has done it with the Drizzle.
Dual coils (dual in quantity, but two different types) offer a newbie the way out of his comfort zone. Granted, it is a small entryway into vaping, and Vaporesso does over-sell it just a little too much, but it’s enough change to make a rookie want to learn more about vaping.
Replacing the coils is easy, and it makes sense financially not always to have to keep buying the entire coil apparatus.
I know flavor has more to do with the type of e-juice your vaping, but the device that delivers that flavor is just as important in that process. The Drizzle is a perfect flavor delivery device.
This is why I am a fan of starter kits – the company knows they have to impress this new, potentially life-long customer without overwhelming them – and how do they achieve this? They can include a little, training wheel mod like dual coils, and they can grab you with flavor.
The Drizzle is a perfect device to make you crave a great, tasting vape.
For a starter kit with as much performance and pedigree as Vaporesso Drizzle, which also retails for under 30 dollars, you couldn’t ask for more. I’m going to meld the fact that the Drizzle is an excellent deal with points for being a Vaporesso product.
Vaporesso takes the quality and superb craftsmanship associated with their brand name seriously, and it shows in the finished product. The Drizzle is just the latest iteration of Vaporesso’s commitment to excellence.
Drizzle It Off
Nothing bad to report, really. The Drizzle, for what it is (an MTL starter, AIO kit) is an ideal device. The battery did heat up noticeably but not so much that I had to put it down.
And there could be more thought put into a few grip tips to keep the Drizzle from slipping, but other than that, I was happy with my purchase.
Vaporesso Drizzle: Closing It Up
Vaporesso hit all the right buttons with the Drizzle. I expected great things from Vaporesso, and I was not disappointed. It’s a simple, easy-to-use starter kit, with great flavor delivery. The Drizzle skirts the line between newbie and veteran by including two separate coils to let new vapers explore and to satisfy weathered, sub-ohm vapers.
I give the Drizzle a mighty 10/10.
