In’Ax Mk III by Athea Mods: My Angel is the Centerroll

Introduction/Disclosure

The In’Ax Mk III by Athea Mods is an atomizer that I ended up purchasing because the website said You can’t have it. I’m talking, of course, about the VapinArt website. I wasn’t initially too interested in getting it, but the instant the website started breaking, I couldn’t stop myself. I really wanted it the more the machines said I couldn’t have it.

I ended up accidentally getting a lot.

But fortunately VapinArt was able to fix my order so I only received one very expensive atomizer and accessory instead of three. It would have been really weird to have so many In’Axes. I’m certain I could have found a home for them, but it would have been a bit of a cluster.

So what you can take away from this introduction/disclosure is that I paid RRP from a store and I fought my hardest to defeat the machines. When their uprising is complete, I shall be ready.

Specifications

  • Price: $184.95 (as tested: $204.45)
  • Height: 30.5mm
  • Diameter: 22mm
  • Volume: 3mL
  • Tank Material: Steel
  • Airflow: 1mm – 6x1mm

inax 1

There is quite an environment of accessories that Athea have made for the latest In’Ax at launch. There is a clear PMMA tank that maintains the 3mL capacity and an extra-large metal tank that brings the diameter out to 28.5mm and the total volume to 5mL. My favorite accessory, though is the threaded boulon. More on that bad mama jama later.

The airflow control is adjusted by moving the disc up on top to different settings. It’s easy to see which setting you’re on and it really makes life a breeze. Airflow is easy to adjust, but difficult to move on accident.

Impressions

The box was nice! Not like the best thing ever made, but it was nice to have a sturdy branded box. What I did not realize about the box, however, is that the rolling pin gets stuck to the top of the box, so I rolled my mesh around the spare positive pin I got. I found my rolling pin later.

All the threads are super smooth. It’s easy to get everything to catch and it all sits flush. I have a really hard time identifying any seams or anything looking around on the In’Ax Mk III. The machining really is top notch, which ought to be expected for the price (and some other things living at this price point can be difficult to work with).

The In’Ax is also fairly dense feeling. Not super hefty, but it has a healthy weight to it that is reassuring. And that’s…well…reassuring.

The Build

inax 8

The build, even with not immediately knowing where my rolling pin was living, was easy as pie! Oxidize your wick as normal (I prefer #200SF for…everything), roll it over the pin and scoot it onto the center post.

Now, the threaded boulon. I don’t like grip sticks, and this accessory is worth much more than the $19.50 it costs because it saves a lot of heartache. It will accommodate 28AWG wire no problem (I haven’t tried anything thicker yet). First, get your wire trapped up top. Then, wrap your wire in the direction the mesh was rolled. I found 4 wraps to be the perfect amount, and trap the bottom leg with the nut. It can be difficult to keep the bottom leg taut (but not too taut so you don’t choke your wick), but you’ll get a feel for it.

If you have difficulty with the threaded boulon, try wrapping your mesh around the spare positive pin rather than the rolling pin.

Check for hot spots (you shouldn’t have any if your mesh is properly oxidized), and you should be good to go! Be careful and make sure that your mesh isn’t too fat, or else it will short out against the grounded chimney it all goes into.

Filling the tank is improbably simple. Just unscrew the top cap (keep one hand on the tank section so it doesn’t come off the bottom!) and fill it up! You can really just tip over a glass bottle in there. Filling is fast, simple, and it keeps with Genesis style atomizers being super easy to fill from the top.

On filling – It’s really easy to overfill and push excess liquid out from the airholes. The O-ring on the center post is ever so slightly lower than the O-ring on the tank section, and if you fill to that red O-ring instead of the center one, then you might get some excess out the air holes. It’s not super difficult to clear from the air holes, but since airflow comes in through the gaps between the fins, it can be hard to see until it’s already leaked on you.

And that is the only leaking I have encountered. That is it. It hasn’t leaked on me aside from when I do this and you just have to know where to look when you’re filling.

The center black O ring is *slightly* lower than the red O ring.
The center black O-ring is *slightly* lower than the red O-ring.

Performance

The In’Ax Mk III performs spectacularly. I’ve used 50/50 and 30/70 liquids with no dry hits at all. And the flavor. Especially at tighter airflow, the flavor is just stupendous. Opening up the airflow to six holes, you can get extremely satisfying restricted lung hits. The condensed chamber does the In’Ax incredible favors for flavors. Vapor production is persistently satisfying as well.

The airflow allows you to take tighter MTL draws than the K.Loud+G (with the same flavor on mesh) and up to restricted lung hits that you might be able to get out of Le Zephyr (although not as airy as LZ wide open).

The included drip tip is also fantastic. It’s a friction fit white Teflon drip tip and it stops all heat from going from the atomizer to your precious mouth, which is great because the In’Ax can get way hot.

I use temperature control exclusively and have done so for the last year or so. The In’Ax does a fabulous job of it. It’s really a fantastic tank for that because the opaque tank makes it a little difficult to gauge how much liquid you have left. After a while you just…don’t get vapor anymore. Pop open the lid, refill, and you’re good to go!

Living with the In’Ax is quite simple as well. Cleaning the coil is impressively simple, even keeping TC on. Just heat it up, run it under water, and gently brush it off with a flat head screwdriver. Repeat for a few minutes and your mesh build is as good as new!

The only part of the In’Ax that really eludes me is keeping the fins clean. They just like to pick up a bunch of lint from my pocket. A quick rinse will do it, but it is a little frown-inducing when that happens.

Conclusion

The In’Ax Mk III is a fantastic atomizer. It is a Genny through and through, though. By nature of the build you can’t get cotton in there functionally unlike the majority of the Gennies reviewed here. That said, if you’re not experienced with mesh, the build is quite simple for a first time mesh builder. Whether you’re comfortable with the material or willing to get into it, then this is a great atomizer to use.

There is, however, a sticking point with the In’Ax Mk III. It is expensive. It’s about $20 more expensive than I thought it would be at launch. Its price point puts it at the same price as the Hurricane, and its shortcomings should not be ignored despite its excellent performance. There is no glass tank available. In the stock configuration you can’t see your liquid levels. Gripsticks can be a pain in the butt to deal with, and it requires finesse to build it properly in the stock configuration. It can be easy to short out if your mesh touches the chamber going down the tube.

That said, the flavor is impeccable. The machining is well thought out and smooth (there are even flat bits in the top cap to let air escape when screwing down the top). It’s a handsome, small tank. It’s easy to build on (especially so if you get the boulon). The airflow control options are varied, simple, and flexible.

Who Is It For?

The In’Ax Mk III by Athea Mods is for someone who:

  • Wants a strictly mesh atty.
  • Prefers a flavor-based experience.
  • Enjoys an easy-to-live-with atomizer.
  • Likes to accessorize their atties.
  • Wants a durable atomizer.
  • Is looking for an “end-game” RBA.

Is the In’Ax Mk III expensive? It sure is, but is it at least 1.5 K.Loud+Gs? I would say so. Not just on performance, but living with it is so much easier (and the K.Loud+G was already quite easy to live with). Filling is a breeze, capacity is good enough for most of a work day for me. It’s easy to clean the build, and it lasts a good long while.

If you want super wide airflow, this is not a great atomizer for you. Same goes for people who have no desire to deal with mesh or get paranoid about their liquid levels. For me, it is a difficult atomizer not to recommend. I regularly take it to work, out to bars, and use it in the home. It has completely supplanted the K.Loud+G as my go-to atomizer. It’s the one I reach for if my apartment complex burns down, and I can’t recommend it enough even at the high price point.

The In’Ax Mk III can be found at VapinArt with a bunch of accessories as well!

I hope you enjoyed the review, thank you for reading! Let’s see that beautiful B Roll.

Quick Fire Reviews: The MCR 303

About

Despite having been vaping since 2013, there are some atties that I missed out on, or that I just want to revisit. These are quick reviews intended to touch on something that’s not the newest, not the shiniest, and likely has already had too much said on it. It’s always worth comparing these things to our modern atomizers and see what’s held up and what hasn’t!

I don’t believe I’ll put up any of my own pictures for these, just in the interest of getting the reviews done as quickly as possible.

Disclosure: I purchased this from a friend of mine a few states away for well under RRP, but even at their bananas sales price of about $40 this atomizer is screaming cheap.

Introduction

Specifications

  • Price: $40.00 for the multi month long Flash Sale that has been going on (130.00GBP regular price)
  • Height: 30.7mm
  • Diameter: 20mm
  • Volume: 1.8mL
  • Tank Material: PMMA or Stainless Steel
  • Airflow: 1mm, 1.5mm, or 2.0mm fixed depending on your choice (additional caps can be purchased)

Where the Sat22 was thoughtful, so too is the MCR 303 in different ways. The volume may be a deal breaker for some, but filling is so quick and easy that I didn’t find it to be much of an issue. This review was conducted with the 1mm top cap!

Impressions

The MCR has a dedicated fill port (where you would just use the unused wick hole on the Sat), but you can either leave the port plugged or unplugged with a metal rod in the MCR. The rod gets threaded into the top cap of the MCR, and serves as a guide to get the top cap on in such a way that you don’t jank up your build due to the reduced build chamber in the cap being able to squash your wick and coil.

The flavor is lovely on this atomizer, though. It’s right there with the Sat22, but there is one important difference between the MCR and the Sat22: the MCR 303 can whistle.

I thought it wouldn’t be a problem – I’ve had some noisy atomizers before, but after using the Sat22 for a few weeks before getting into the MCR 303 the noise was driving me crazy. The flavor is bananas! It’s easy to live with! I can build it in a jiffy, fill in half a jiff, but the sound every time I used it was nooooo bueno. The diameter of the drip tip against the airflow was also introducing a little dysphoria (wide bore, tight airflow).

The 20mm diameter may also make people feel a bit odd, as well. I think it looks great on 22mm mods – I really didn’t think it looked bad on my DEV2+.

For those two issues that some may or may not have with the atomizer, there is one thing to keep in mind: this is a $40.00 Genesis style atomizer and it performs wonderfully. It is flavorful, warm, and I didn’t get a single dry hit. If you’re looking for something cheap to try for Gennies, absolutely check these out because who knows how long the prices will remain so low.

Quick Fire Reviews: The Sat22 by Satburn Mods

About

Despite having been vaping since 2013, there are some atties that I missed out on, or that I just want to revisit. These are quick reviews intended to touch on something that’s not the newest, not the shiniest, and likely has already had too much said on it. It’s always worth comparing these things to our modern atomizers and see what’s held up and what hasn’t! I don’t believe I’ll put up any of my own pictures for these, just in the interest of getting the reviews done as quickly as possible.

Diclosure: I purchased this from a friend of mine for the cost of shipping since he had a spare and I was interested. He included some 2mm stainless steel cable, as well as a stainless steel tank and spare.

Introduction

Specs

  • Price: $165.00
  • Height: ~50mm
  • Diameter: 22mm
  • Volume: 3.0mL (glass) 3.4mL(stainless steel tank)
  • Tank Material: Borosilicate or Stainless Steel
  • Airflow: 2×0.8mm fixed airflow

The Sat22 is a beautiful atomizer. Everything on it is just…thoughtful. There are two wick holes, one 2mm and one 2.5mm. The airflow holes are stacked and countersunk to maximize airflow against the coil and to reduce whistling.

This bad mama jama is whisper quiet. I love it.

The drip tip is the width of a cigarette. I really feel like that is an important thing to keep in mind about this atomizer – it’s a quitter’s atomizer. It’s from two and a half years ago, when this kind of thing was the norm, but going back to it it’s quite refreshing.

I have only two complaints about the Sat22:

  1. It leaks on its side (common for older Gennies, so no surprises there).
  2. It gets hot as the Dickens.

I’m a chain vaper and the heat thing is a huge problem for me. It gets way way way warm all the way up the drip tip and it makes me need to put it down after a few minutes, which is kind of lame. Deal breaker? Sure not. It was my daily carry until the In’Ax Mk. III came in the mail.

The flavor coming off of this is staggeringly good, and the build is quite easy, too. I just used a piece of 2mm SS cable (I had to put it into the 2.5mm wick hole) with a #200SF mesh wick around it and it tastes fabulous. It can take a few hits for the cable to retain enough heat for throat hit to get where I need it, but it’s consistent, simple, and delicious.

They’re pretty hard to find these days. People who have them at this point are the people they’re for. If you find some on your classies for $120 or less, I would totally recommend picking one up. If a noisier atomizer isn’t a problem, then you may want to take a look at the still INSANELY cheap MCR 303 V2s from MCR Mods. The flavor is very close, but the MCR holds a little less liquid and has a PMMA chamber. Take a peek!

I love this atomizer, it’s right up my alley. If you see one and want a really super flavor-oriented atomizer that you can keep on your desk back home, I can’t recommend this highly enough.

Le Zephyr by Vaponaute: Evolution, Not Revolution

Introduction

Disclosure: A very lovely friend of mine lent me this atomizer (for way too long) for me to put together a review of it; it is free outside of shipping it back and forth.

Le Zephyr
Le Zephyr

Le Zephyr is Vaponaute’s latest limited run atomizer. They took lessons learned from Le Magister and incorporated an Ultem tank reducer with the airflow control, kept it down to single coil, and even widened the variety of airflow options available – all moves in the name of progress! Let’s take a look at the specs:

Specs

  • Price: $155.00
  • Height: 30mm
  • Diameter: 22mm
  • Volume: 2.8mL
  • Tank Material: Steel & Ultem chamber reducer.
  • Airflow: 1.2mm to what appears to be a 6x2mm slot

Le Magister was great because it had access to so much variety – to chamber reducers, cotton, mesh, single coil, dual coil, tight airflow, and wide airflow. Le Zephyr goes a step further in many places, but does it all work out? Let’s check out my

Impressions

This wick hole is big. Wicked big. 4.2mm big. That is a lot of mesh to have to get into a wick hole, and have enough of it filled up to keep the tank section from leaking all over you. Vaponaute do sell wick hole reducers on their site, but I haven’t picked one up since this is a borrowed atomizer.

The construction method and airflow control are interesting. You can, on some airflow selections, choose not to have the slot in the Ultem lined up exactly with the airflow holes. There are grooves cut into the Ultem reducer to channel air around. Does it make much of a difference? Not really. The throat hit is a little different, but I wouldn’t say it’s revolutionary, or necessarily outside of the margin of error from just regularly lining up your top cap.

The airflow configuration
The airflow configuration

Airflow adjustment in general, though, is kind of a pain. You have to remove the whole top cap assembly because the geometry of the Ultem reducer makes it such that if you twist it, then the reducer will totally mess up your build. Which is lame. The reducer on the piece that I have, if it gets a little too much liquid on it, will also slide on or off at will, which is incredibly inconvenient. And sticky.

IMG_20160404_191036

Filling it with a glass dropper is a bit of a challenge. You have to rest it on the deck and angle it just right and make sure you don’t squeeze too hard and try not to get it on the deck and and and. It’s just a pain. Filling Le Magister was great because you could use an unoccupied wick hole for it. Just a little dimple would have helped.

IMG_20160404_190942

I ended up being a little less than impressed with the quality of life stuff surrounding Le Zephyr, because Le Magister was easy to live with. Airflow adjustment and filling are the two things you do most with atties (not necessarily in that order), so making them more difficult to access was an interesting choice.

Builds

Building on this is fairly self-explanatory. Le Zephyr comes with a simple coil jig to place in the wick hole and wrap your coil around. Truly the height of simplicity. That said, it can be a little difficult to make sure that your coil doesn’t touch the positive post – my recommendation is to go with a marginally smaller jig just to make sure you get that clearance.

Cotton

This is definitely a build that I would recommend using a twisted/clapton’d vertical 3mm coil and using that extra wick hole clearance to make sure you can do the Genny tilt to keep the cotton fed. I wouldn’t readily recommend any other build in there for cotton (except maybe on even narrower coil builds, folding the wick tail back over the coil and feeding it down into the tank).

It’s really dead simple stuff. It’s very user friendly (for the most part) and hard to knock for build difficulty.

Mesh

Mesh is simultaneously simpler and trickier. Trickier baseline because you need to treat the mesh before it goes on with a thorough round of oxidation and it requires a lot of mesh to totally fill up the 4.2mm wick hole. Something I found that works perfectly well, however, was that if you simply loosen up your mesh (and you can loosen it by quite a bit) then it wicks perfectly fine! This is one of those things that could be relatively simple to fix with one of wick hole insulators.

Because the distance from the bottom of the wick to the deck isn’t very long, mesh wicks fantastically. I did not encounter a dry pull even with 30/70 PG/VG liquids until the tank was entirely empty.

IMG_20160404_191117

Conclusion

This was something that I wasn’t quite ready for. Certainly, the tank wicks quickly in fiber and mesh configurations. The flavor wasn’t quite there, though. As it shows in the “About” page here, I am pretty strictly an MTL vaper, and I kept tinkering and tinkering with my builds and couldn’t quite get the flavor to be where I wanted. I ended up idly playing with the airflow control while watching something on Netflix and I decided to give the fully open slot a shot.

It was fun.

Real fun! I was chuckin’ cloudz in my home. I can’t do it full time, it’s kind of a chore to do all day every day as I once did, but it is fun to play with.

In that same vein, I also got a lot of leaking with this atomizer, especially in its more open configurations. I would pocket it for a few minutes and end up with a pocket (and mod) that were all sticky and gunky, which was kind of lame.

I suppose the main competition to Le Zephyr is going to be the Origenny. The Origenny is more versatile, holds more liquid, and has better flavor, and is much easier to fill. Airflow control convenience is about on par for the both of them, and it’s a little less convenience on the Origenny to build by virtue of the hex screws. Airflow on Le Zephyr is going to be able to get much wider for the single coil configuration, and it can handle twisted/fancy coil configurations a little better as well at the expense of the MTL experience.

This brings us to my favorite section:

Who is this for?

Le Zephyr by Vaponaute is for someone who:

  • Wants a lung-hitting Genny.
  • Does not care for MTL experiences.
  • Is fine with leaving this atty at home.
  • Has unicorn bottles to fill.
  • Who wants to use fancier wire types.

If you were satisfied with Le Magister, K.Loud+G, izi, or other mesh/cotton interchangeable atomizers aimed at a warm, flavorful MTL experience, then this is not the atomizer for you. If you like big, thick clouds, then this is a great way to go and it’s as simple as that. If you already have an Origenny (as I’ve said more than once), you’re not really missing out on much and you’re at least able to tell how much liquid you have left in the tank (and hold more of it).

This was a tough review for me because it was the first atomizer that really isn’t for me, and that made it difficult to review impartially. It behooves you to read more opinions than just mine, as there are people who are better equipped to review direct lung atomizers. But, if you’re the person in the “Who is this for?” section, then this is right up your alley! It helps that this atty is a handsome one, too.

Keep an eye on your classifieds if this is something you want, they’re still trading hands pretty frequently!

The izi RTA by Boostlab Review: A Dangerous Perversion

Introduction

Disclosure: I purchased this mod directly from the manufacturer for RRP:

izi 1

The izi is a different kind of atomizer. At first glance, it looks like a modified Genesis style atomizer. It has the signatures of Minwoo’s design: PEEK chamber reducer, generous Ultem use, and MTL airflow. Where the K.Loud+G is the consummate Genny, the izi is a feverish twist on what we normally take for granted with this type of atty. But first, the specs:

Specifications

  • Price: $145.00
  • Height: 30mm
  • Diameter: 22mm
  • Volume: 2.8mL
  • Tank Material: Ultem
  • Airflow: Up to 4×1.3mm or 4x1mm

At first glance, the izi has a shared heritage with the BF-99 by NoName Mods. My first thought upon seeing the build deck was This bad mama jama is screaming for a U-wick. Which is not totally incorrect – A U-wick is a profitable endeavor for this particular atomizer, but Minwoo some other ideas about builds to put into it. I ended up settling on neither for my favorite build, but more on that later.

The izi, much like the K.Louds, is a flavor focused atomizer. Tight to middling airflow with an extremely reduced chamber are designed to provide a warm, flavorful vape. The airflow confuses some, and I will attest to it being a hair on the peculiar side, since it’s easy to block off airflow (more on that later once again), but it is serviceable.

The most interesting thing about this atomizer, though, is that it is designed to have as much build versatility as possible. Let’s check a few out:

Cotton U-Wick

The cotton U-wick is, ostensibly, the easiest setup for this atomizer:

  1. Create a coil (TC or standard Kanthal, 2.5mm ID is the largest I can fit in there).
  2. Install the coil on the deck (super simple with the channels cut into the positive and negative blocks).
  3. Remove the ultem tank section from the rest of the atomizer.
  4. You cut (or tease off) a long strip of cotton (Japanese or otherwise), just enough to reach the bottom of the tank on both sides.
  5. Feed your cotton up through the tank section, then into the coil, and back into the other wick hole.
  6. Replace your tank section, prime your coil, and give it some test fires to make sure everything is okay.
  7. Fill your tank, replace the chamber reducer set to the airflow you prefer (4x1mm or 4×1.3mm)

And you’re off!

The flavor is good. Very good. Much warmer than most RTA styles that we see these days (even more than the Pico), and the flavor is great. It’s a little jarring, actually, to have such such a warm vape with the cotton “flavor” (really kind of properties of cotton and how it impacts the flavors you’re using). It’s not bad at all, just different. Good different.

Now for the cons:

If cotton is the only material in this atty, it gets a little hinky kinda quickly. Once you get to the dregs of the tank, it doesn’t want to wick very happily anymore. If you leave it on its side, it will definitely leak out. The most egregious negative for an all-cotton build, though, is that the airflow gets totally choked off by having a bunch of cotton up in there, which is a huge bummer! There is no appreciable difference between the two airflow sets on the reducer, which really takes points away from this setup.

And it’s not a super durable build – I don’t want to have to go poking in and out of the tank section every few days to make sure I got all the old cotton out and to poke new cotton in there. It’s good, don’t get me wrong, but it is not quite ideal.

Mesh U-Wick

This is the best guide I have encountered thus far for setting up a mesh U-wick (although I would recommend doing 5+ liquid burns to make sure everything is properly oxidized and insulated). I use #200SF mesh since that will wick just about any liquid under the sun, and you’re good to go!

The flavor is excellent once again, and quite wet like Le Magister was. The heat is impeccable like the K.Loud+G (although perhaps a little cooler than the updated version of the +G). The flavor is great, and your airflow is definitely not obstructed since you don’t need to have cotton stuffed up in there.

Installing the build is tricky, since you have to navigate the mesh into the wick holes first, and then mount the coil/mesh combo on the deck without causing any kinks or anything. It’s also a leaky sum’bitch. Don’t leave it on its side, because it will leak all over the place very quickly.

Mesh is also good, but not ideal. Don’t leave the house with it.

Hybrid Builds

Hybrid builds are the way to go. Even prior to release, Minwoo had posted an extensive build video showing some of the builds, and his preferred one (mesh stick on cotton drivers descending into the tank) is a good vape.

It does have its issues, though. Whenever I got up in there to replace my cotton drivers, I bent and kajiggered the heck out of my mesh! Not cool. It tasted great, it didn’t really leak, but it also was not easy to live with.

My preferred build is to drop two hollow #200SF drivers. These will wick just about anything, and keeping them hollow ensures that everything moves around smoothly (I generally prefer “slugs” that have no hollow core, but this is what worked best for me). The next bit is where things get weird:

  1. Get your wire, and bend it into some zigzags. Remember, the izi has a very small chamber, so you need to be careful about whether or not you short out your build a bit.
  2. Install it into the deck. If things deform a little bit, don’t worry, it’s simple to clean it up by just bending some things into place. All mine end up looking pretty crooked, but it works great.
  3. Stuff some cotton under the zigzag coil. Get a pretty good amount jammed up in there, but don’t push super hard, it should be simple to get fresh cotton in there.
MS Paint: The Height of Science.
MS Paint: The Height of Science.

And you’re good to go! It tastes great, leaves airflow open, and doesn’t leak one whit. It combines all the best from the other builds, and provides the kind of experience that I knew this atomizer was designed to deliver.

izi 3

Ignore the grungy cotton! I haven't had time to freshen it up!
Ignore the grungy cotton! I haven’t had time to freshen it up!

Conclusion

The izi is a fabulous atomizer – but it takes some experimentation to really really find what works. It took about a week and four different builds (not to mention all the rewicks that went into it) to find what worked best for me, and it may not be the best for you – if you really want mesh to be the atomizer material, my preferred guide isn’t going to work for you. I’m certain it can be done, but I wasn’t quite able to find one that satisfied me.

That aside, I do love this atomizer. It really is fabulous. It’s different, and I love to see Boostlab move away from more established atomizer designs. It shows that there is plenty of room to innovate and still get an exceptional result.

Who is it for?

This is an easy question to answer, but difficult to find someone who might truly love this atty. It’s for someone who:

  • Loves a hot vape.
  • Wants a decidedly mouth-to-lung atomizer.
  • Who is okay with having an atomizer that they have to discover.

It’s that discovery bit that’s the hard part on this one. The izi needs that because it’s not really like anything else – conventional solutions won’t work in an unconventional atomizer. And I love it.

e: I spoke with Boost Lab and it looks like they’re making another batch!  If you’re looking for one, keep an eye on their Facebook page!
