Le Magister by Vaponaute Review: Polyvalent

Foreword

Le Magister is an important atomizer.

There is an expanding family of atomizers that are extremely versatile; they have lots of airflow options, are compatible with stainless steel and fiber wicks, and have a focus on flavor. It’s in a family with the Origenny and K.Loud+G (less so on the airflow with that one). The designer wants you to be able to use the wicking material you want for the experience you want. You can adjust the airflow exactly how you want, do whatever coil build you want.

These are very much one-stop atomizers that will let you use what you want while providing a satisfying, warm vape. Filling them is easy (less so on the Origenny), which makes for a very positive experience in the long term.

The variation that these allow for really help cement this type of atomizer as my favorite kind – whether you’re a mesh head or not. Let’s get into this properly:

Specs

  • Price: $140.00; as reviewed: $160.00 Retail.
  • Height: 30mm
  • Diameter: 22mm
  • Volume: 2mL (2.5mL if using a “scarf wick”)
  • Airflow: 1.2mm, 1.5mm, 2.2mm (or 2 x each if in dual coil configuration)
  • Configuration: Reviewed with the Kensi Mods Vertical Chamber Reducer

Le Magister can be set up in mesh, fiber, single, or dual coil configurations, and coils can be horizontal or vertical.

The small capacity may be cause for some to shy away and swing towards the higher-capacity Origennies, but filling is so easy, that you aren’t missing out on much. The Origenny 4mL is double the capacity, but it drinks e-liquid relative to Le Magister, so there is that to keep in mind, not just as a cost consideration, but as a performance one as well. Filling Le Magister is so simple (especially relative to the Origen Genesis), that the relatively more-frequent top-offs aren’t much cause for issue.

The main competition for Le Magister are going to be the K.Loud+G and Origen Genesis V2 Mk 2. They all occupy a similar price point (~$140), have similar capabilities (mesh or fiber), and are similar styles (all Genesis styles). The competition is fierce – my favorite atty being among them, so let’s see how it fares!

Le Magister on my Dani Extreme V2+ and part of a phone. And some cables. My desk is not your business. It’s my business.

Impressions

The packaging for this is lovely! The tin with the airplane is really great, and all the foam inside keeping everything snug and secure makes me feel good about ordering products from Vaponaute in the future. It makes me feel like they care that you receive this piece that they crafted (and clearly put love into) unharmed.

It’s a handsome atomizer, too. It’s little – just bout the same height as the Pico RTA. It’s completely stainless steel inside and out, so no worries about tank crackers.

The inside is just as handsome as the outside. The deck, chamber, screws, nuts, and even the aftermarket reducer are all very attractive. To steal from Todd, “it’s really just stunnin’.”

The airflow options are glorious! Sometimes you want a tight draw, sometimes you want a more open draw, and you can get either of them any time with this. Really just fabulous stuff.

The Builds

Now is where we run into not negatives per se, just not things that I would recommend the mod for. The wick holes in the deck cut into the filling area, so it can be hard to keep a coiling bit/screwdriver stabilized while mounting your coil. It doesn’t sound like a big thing, but I only have so many fingers to keep things in place and turn some screws. It can be a bit of a hassle, certainly moreso than the K.Loud+G, and maybe easier than the Origenny (although that gets serious knocks in my book for needing an Allen key to build – if that doesn’t matter to you, then Le Magister is more difficult.).

Cotton Builds

The “scarf build”

The cotton builds are simple whether you want to use a horizontal or vertical coil. The deck is quite generous with space to spare for fiddling about with where the cotton goes. You can wrap the cotton around the center post to reduce the chamber and cover the second wicking hole, you can have one leg in one hole one leg in the other, you can have the whole thing wrapped around like a scarf with both legs feeding into the same wick hole, or dual coils each having their own wick hole, or whatever you please! It can be a bit overwhelming trying all the options, but there is one thing about all the cotton builds except one:

The flavor is pretty muted.

It’s not bad, but coming from something like the K.Loud+G, it’s a hair underwhelming. The only cotton build worth really doing that I was able to try (since I do not have the horizontal reducer to try) is a single vertical coil with the vertical reducer. The flavor is dense, warm, wet, and tasty. It’s quite nice, and can save you from all the hassle of dealing with mesh except the

Mesh Builds

Are better.

A single coil mesh build with the vertical reducer in this really is fantastic. It’s fiddly to get in there because you can’t stabilize the coiling rod in the wick hole, but it really is fantastic once you get it right. The flavor is as warm and dense as the K.Loud+G, but I think it wicks just a hair faster and it gives it that wet vape that you get with a Hurricane or UTA. It’s really fabulous.

I have managed to get a little liquid out of the airhole, but nothing extreme. I’ve done worse with the K.Loud in my day-to-day screwing about and even more with cotton-based RTAs. There’s really nothing weird there to report.

Temp Control

Temperature control on this atomizer works great, which is awesome because you can’t see inside the tank. The vapor just kind of…goes away which makes you a little sad, but if you’ve ever experienced a mesh dry hit, you thank your lucky stars for the inexorable forward march of industry.

Using Le Magister atop my Dani Extreme V2+ (super handsome combo), I rarely had to recalibrate and 0.3 and 0.4mm Ti wire from Sweet Spot Vapors were both working great. I also had an excellent experience with my 316L wire from zivipf. It really just works and that’s a much higher barrier to cross than one might think based on offerings from other manufacturers.

Conclusion

So…this is where things start to get a little weird. Le Magister, like anything Vaponaute do (besides their liquids, I suppose), is a limited edition affair. Only so many were made. How many? If the release of Le Zephyr is anything to go by, fewer than two thousand exist. A few (or the same piece) crop up on classifieds every once in a while, but the people who have them seem to be holding onto them.

At release it went for $140.00, and based on that as reviewed mine was $160.00, but it’s kind of hard to pin down. It’s equal parts Origenny and K.Loud+G. It’s a beautiful atomizer with loads of options, and the Kensi Mods chamber reducers are fabulous.

The thing is, though, the single coil performance with the vertical chamber reducer completely outpaces the dual coil and cotton options. None of them are bad, but a single coil mesh build is the way to go. It doesn’t guzzle liquid, but it doesn’t quite sip it the way the K.Loud+G does.

The price point is pretty consistent with other available options, the two named above but also the newly released izi by Boost Lab, In’Axes of every variety, and some other loving goodness that I have yet to lay my hands on. Even among RTAs, it’s consistent with the likes of the Squape R[S], Pico RTA with accoutrement, etc. and so forth. But it’s hard to get – not in the way that an Ubertoot or Pico is hard to get, but it’s simply not being made anymore. Maybe it ought to be framed in another way:

If you have a K.Loud+G (updated or not), you’re not missing anything outside of aesthetics. I would say the same for the Origen Genesis V2, but there is some convenience you gain with Le Magister. If I were forced to choose between the K.Loud+G and Le Magister, I would honestly leave it up to a coin toss. It is that good. The competition is fierce in this sphere – improvements in flavor and texture are essentially nil, and quality of life essentially rules the roost., all other things being equal.

Who is this for?

Anyone who wants an atomizer that:

  • Has excellent flavor (when the chamber reducer is used), and gives you a nice, wet vape.
  • Has options for whatever kinds of builds you might want.
  • Is both cotton and mesh compatible.
  • Is rather easy to live with.

If you want an excellent cotton atomizer, there are better options even in this mechanism-factor.  The Origenny would be my recommendation for anyone who wants a great cotton atty that is also great with mesh with loads of airflow and build options, no accessories required.

It’s an excellent atomizer, it’s in a space that I think we’ll see expanded with the TPD 2mL rule in the EU, and it performs great.  Maybe I’ll be able to afford Le Zephyr one day and review that as a follow-up.

Now, let’s see that lovely B-Roll:

The K.Loud+G Update: AFC, and an Even Smaller Chamber

Contents of the Update

My original review (below) was a fairly stellar one of the K.Loud+G by Boost Lab. When I heard that they had an update kit, a friend of mine inquired about grabbing one for me and he passed it along! The update kit has the following changes:

  • Smaller atomization chamber
  • Airflow control: 2 holes at 1.4mm and 2.0mm

These changes may seem slight, but they do have a fairly large impact on the overall experience. The options for the two airholes rather than just the one, and being able to partially close them off is nice as well, which is sure to appeal to many who want more airflow options!

The original chamber reducer is on the left, the updated one is on the right.

The smaller atomization chamber is really great. At a decreased wattage, I’m able to maintain the heat and flavor density of the original set up, which is great for battery life.

The original chamber is on the left, with the reduced chamber on the right.

This upgrade is a baby step – not a generational leap. Is it good? Very! Should you burn your old one for a new one? Not really.  The K.Loud+G remains an atomizer that I would recommend to anyone who wants a hot, delicious vaping experience. The atomizer is consistent, delicious, and reliable. If you want the best classic Genny style atomizer, then this is probably the best one available.

Now let’s see some photos:

Review

This atomizer kind of came out of nowhere for me. I saw it and wanted to pair it with my DEV2+ because both of them are so damn small. I was really in for a big surprise on this one!

The atomizer comes with some nice spare bits and pieces (O-rings, screws), which is nice considering there are some manufacturers who are bad about including extras.

My favorite thing that comes with this atomizer is the dowel. The dowel lets you do the Petar K method with ease, and I’m certain getting cotton in there is truly a simple endeavor.

All your bits and pieces are held down with Phillips head screws. That is awesome. I hate needing extra tools. Extra tools are lame, and it can make it hard to find adequate replacements at your local hardware store. The Phillips head screws are nice. I don’t have to bring any special tools when I travel, and if something goes janky or I need to clean it, I can usually fix it right away.

One of the defining characteristics of this atomizer is that once you remove the top cap, there is a chamber reducer in there. An enormous chamber reducer, so your chamber is reduced enormously. You have a tiny space where your atomization takes place and that is going to be a big deal.

So before I go any further, I have one question for you:

    How hot do you like it?

Because if you don’t like hot – blazing hot – vapor then stop reading, this atty isn’t for you. If you don’t like MTL atties, this isn’t for you.

If you like those things, congratulations because we both love Genesis style atomizers, and this is one hell of a Genny.

You can tell right away that the K.Loud+G is made by someone who doesn’t just love Gennies, but adores them. The chamber reducer takes up as much space as physically possible while still allowing for both cotton and mesh. The airflow cut in the reducer is a slot, perfect for vertical coils like one finds in a Genny; the better your coil is exposed to airflow, the better the flavor will be. The reducer and Ultem section both hold onto liquid to maximize capacity in the smallest possible profile.

This atomizer is entirely about intensity. That is the only word I can use to describe it. Every single drag is intense, but not in an exhausting way. It’s unbelievable, it really is. I wasn’t prepared in the least for this, because Todd is the only person who’s reviewed it that I know of, and he isn’t quite as in love with this tank as I am.

I really can’t get over how much I’m enjoying the flavor and heat.

It produces a respectable amount of vapor. It’s just right. I don’t need or want any more than that, and even if there were less, I wouldn’t be upset. I’m not a cloud chaser, I’m not a Sub-Ohmanite, I’m not trying to chuck tits (I have a hard enough time getting anyone to let me touch theirs, let alone chuck them).

Now, for the tank capacity. As we all know, I’m lazy. I could sleep for 20 consecutive hours given a saline drip. A 2mL tank is not a very big tank. This…lasts, though. The Origenny goes through liquid about twice as fast, and isn’t remotely as enjoyable in single or dual configurations. And filling this thing is a dream. Pop off your top cap and use your dropper, unicorn bottle, nipple top, or weird MBV bottles, and it fills. It works great. Just keep going until liquid comes out of the other hole. No unscrewing, nothing gets hot and expanded and hung up on O-rings.

Furthermore on the tank, this thing doesn’t leak. I thought I made it leak for the first time mere minutes before this review, but I had over filled it and the excess pooled and went out the air hole. No leaks so far, and I’ve kept it in my pocket every day for more than a week.

How is it with temperature control?

Fucking great. No stability issues on resistance readings with 28AWG Hard-Drawn Ni200, ResisTherm, or Ti wire. My temperature control experience has been consistent, I’m not getting surprise hot legs anywhere throwing off the resistance (oxidize your mesh, kids!), and the flavor remains great all the time.

Cleaning this is easy! Yes, the most pain-in-the-ass part of atomizer ownership is dead goddamn simple for the K.Loud+G. All you need to do is unscrew the the two Phillips head screws keeping the chamber in place, and it gives you way more deck access than most Gennies allow, let alone bottom-coil RTAs. All the holes that are drilled into the deck to make sure liquid can get out of the reducer and into the actual tank section allow you to just rinse it out with water. It’s easy to rinse and get your crud off your coil because of the way the negative capture screw is oriented.

It’s all just so simple.

Living with it in general is great. It’s a handsome atty, easy to refill, and easy to clean. The temperature control is stable with multiple wire types, and the build is simple with the included dowel. It uses screws and connectors with common heads.

The only cons I really have are:

  • Sometimes the little hex nut nut on the positive post can be a little tricky to tighten down all the way.
  • When screwing the reducer down, it can be a little out of place. It’s easy to scootch it back into place, but it can be a little confusing the first time your top cap comes down, and then it doesn’t want to anymore.

So…who is this for?

    Do NOT buy this if:
  • You want an airy draw.
  • You don’t like mesh (although cotton is also pretty good, no idea because the mesh is amazing).
  • 2mL isn’t enough capacity for you, but you also don’t want to carry a bottle around.
  • You like a cold vape.Really, for a purchase on a lark, I could not be happier with this atomizer. It’s really amazing, and its availability (almost always in stock at Ought Vape) and price point (a rather reasonable $140) really put it in an amazing sweet spot for me.

The Origen Genesis V2 Mk 1 Long Term Review

This tank makes the rounds quite a bit as far as suggestions go, and all year it’s been my top atty for a number of reasons (and not really the ones you’re thinking of).

Specs:

  • 35mm tall, excluding drip tip (not included) and 510 connector
  • 4mL capacity PMMA tank
  • Loads of airflow options ranging from 1.2mm to 2×2.5mm
  • Single or dual coil configurations with different deck reducers.
  • 2x3mm wick holes for mesh or 2×4.5mm wick holes for fiber (cotton, rayon, silica, etc.)

Review

As you can see from the specs, this atty has a lot going on, which is a good thing. This is probably the single most versatile atomizer out here which is my #1 reason for recommending it so much. The flavor is quite good, and if you want you can get in on some decent clouds with the dual coil and double 2.5mm airflow holes. Despite the large amount of air that can pass through the chamber, the domed cap really does help out quite a bit with improving flavor.

The chambered fins are at least a really neat aesthetic touch, although they can dent if dropped/kajiggered too roughly. I’m not really certain if they add a substantial amount of heat dissipation, because it feels like the rest of the atty holds onto heat for a while. It’s all very thick/solidly constructed stainless steel, so it may want to hold onto some heat there, but I do recommend a JMK Pico+ drip tip to protect your precious, luscious lips.

The 4mL tank is really great, it’s not a tonof liquid, but it’s an attractive size and holds a functional amount. A fair dealbreaker for a lot of people is going to be the PMMA tank which can crack when exposed to exceptionally citrusy/cinnamony/anise flavors. There are SS tanks available, and I believe the V2 Mk 2 6mL tank has a pyrex version (don’t get the 6mL version – the common opinion is that it can be really hard to get the last bit of liquid out of there and it looks tacky).

The Origenny produces quite good flavor, and a really pleasantly warm vape. I really like it a lot, and you can get that kind of experience with mesh or cotton, which is a lovely thing. You can get anywhere from really restricted drags like a cigarette, or you can go wide open for a moderately restricted lung hit. With #200SF mesh, I had no problems with really high VG liquids (80%+ VG). The Origenny is also quite stable in temperature control, which I adore because I’m a real human and not a total sperg, thank you for asking.

If you want to know more, I would direct you to Our Lord and Savior, Jong Yeol Kim, come to save us from this vile planet.

But as we all know, I’m getting crotchety and lazy. What is the Origenny like to live with?

It’s fine, if you like your atties like 1950s housewives: at home. You can’t really tip it on its side at all, or else you’ll lose liquid all over the place. When I pack it for trips as a backup atty, it needs to be in its own Ziploc bag because I don’t want to screw with dumping the liquid out, drying it, and then packing it. That’s not a huge problem, though, we’ve put up with that from genesis style atomizers for years now. Most of them don’t really leak much these days, but we all know it’s a possibility. It just happens that this one leaks a lot more than many modern gennies.

Filling it can be a bit of a hassle, also. It has a threaded fill plug (that, by the way, has very well machined threading), but getting to it can be an issue. Sometimes my top cap doesn’t want to come off, so I need to unscrew the top of the top cap, reach into the chamber with the fat tips of my fingers to unscrew the plug, get my liquid down in there (GL if you made it this far and are using one of the plastic bottles instead of an eye dropper, because sometimes the rest of the top cap that’s still stuck on the atty can keep you from getting your precious liquid in there), try and screw the plug back in, keep my AFC in place while I screw the top back on, and hopefully I didn’t rotate the friction fit top cap and misalign it from my air holes.

BUT its versatility is a big deal, what if I want to swap between single and dual coil configurations really quickly? Well…

If you follow OLASJYK’s build guide, that can be a hair problematic simply because both of your coils are hooked together. It is the easiest way to have a consistent dual coil build on this atomizer, but if you want to swap back to single coil, it may well be easier to just totally remove your dual coil, keep it in an old film canister, and drop in your single coil build when you want to use that. Which is not super simple.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand it uses a hex key for its screws to change your chamber reducers and for your negative lead captures on your build. Which isn’t great. I hate having specialized tools for stuff.

BUT its versatility is really great. Having all the options for coil configurations, airflow, and wicking material amount to a lot for me. It’s a big deal that with a single atomizer I can experience a liquid in so many ways. Some days I just want to cut loose with some lung hits, and this atty lets me do that while still getting very good flavor, and I can swap back to MTL airflow pretty quickly and get even better flavor. That’s a big deal, because so many times on atomizers you need to make compromises between airflow and flavor, where this one gives you very good performance no matter what direction you want to go in.

Furthermore, living with it is nice because (especially with #200 SF) I almost never have to use the Genny tilt. That last 0.5mL is really all the needs it whether I’m single or dual coil, and whose tank behaves right on the last 0.5mL anyway?

Cleaning it out is a breeze, since tank section removal isn’t a hassle for the most part (sometimes things do get a little sticky and it’s a pain, but you train yourself out of letting that happen pretty quick), and it dries out really quick in case you’re in a rush.

I truly cannot express how much I appreciate all the work that went into this atomizer, and the space it fills in the market (and on my vape shelf). This is an important atomizer because you can run anything in it.

So would I recommend it? Yes I would, but only if:

  • You have another everyday carry atomizer to bring to work/car/whatever.
  • You really love to experiment with your builds and enjoy finding unique, but not necessarily over-the-top ways to enjoy your eliquid.
  • If you have draw ADD and like to switch it up with frequency.
  • This is not your first genesis style atomizer.

It’s a fairly specific use case, but I imagine there are enough tinkerers on here that it would appeal to a good number of you!

What else is on the market in this price point ($140) that I would recommend?

* Squape R[S] holds a comparable amount of liquid, and is an *excellent* everyday carry atomizer. This also has a huge amount of variety, but not quite as much as the Origenny because you need to buy extra decks for some of it. Get the B Deck, though. It’s not super TC friendly, so keep that in mind.

* In’Ax Carto with a GP SnP tank/Loki Tank by Atmomixani/Scuba by Atmistique if you want something that performs magnificently with mesh, has really incredible flavor, and pretty dead simple setup. Definitely a solid beginner’s genesis style. Most carto tanks hold a similar amount of liquid as well. It just doesn’t have a big variety of AFC. I haven’t had any problems with TC on this particular atty, either!

Thanks for taking the time to read this! Hopefully this helps show if this is an atty that’s right for you or not!
