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.
- 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:
- It leaks on its side (common for older Gennies, so no surprises there).
- 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.
