After a year of RTAs spilling onto the market, some good - some completely horrendous, I keep coming back to the top air flow Griffin 25’.
This tank has impressed me so much for so many reasons I can’t leave it alone. After trialing and reviewing a lot of others I always seem to return to my trusty Griffin.
The Griffin gives you the option of using either a dual or single coil velocity style build deck. This is 17mm wide and has a clicking air flow ring that is easy to adjust and firm enough to stay in place and not slip without the user knowing.
The innovative top air flow design takes in air from the top of the tank, just underneath the driptip and then takes the added airflow through the double barreled chimney right down to the coils. These features enhance the flavor rather than muffle it. Geek Vape claim it has 6ml liquid capacity, but after measuring this myself, I found it to only holds 5.2ml which, to be fair, is more than an adequate for most vapers.
The tank itself stands 54mm tall with a 9mm wide chimney; the tank is 25mm wide (the hints in the name) but it bevels at the base to only 23.5mm so the tank sits nicely on almost any mod.
The build deck is huge for an RTA and any hobbyist vaper will have the time of their lives building this deck. I found wicking takes a small amount of practice, but, in my opinion, less is more when it comes to the cotton used for the wick. The flavour and vapour production of this tank is second to none. Filling the tank is almost a pleasure because of the over-sized kidney bean shaped fill ports. You can pretty much tip the liquid straight from the bottle with no need for drippers.
The tank is designed very well. It has internal logos imprinted on the chimney within the tank which really shows how important the details are to Geek Vape. This tank stands out a mile for me because of its nice wide airflow.
Although I love my wide flows, vapers at the other end of the spectrum can restrict the air flow for mouth to lung hits.
The Griffin 25mm comes packaged with a two replaceable glasses, one clear and the other frosted and plenty of spare o-rings in a range of colours. This means the flavor production, the vaper production and appearance are all down to the user’s preference.
To get the cons out of the way won’t take long as I have only found two. First, the juice flow must be shut off every time you refill the tank, as this creates a vacuum and it will leak like crazy if you leave it open.
The second is the small amount of juice that builds up around the airflow. However, this is down to the way I vape. I tend to breath into the tank before I inhale and this is what I believe causes this.
Now for the pros: a 5ml capacity, a massive build deck, an incredible airflow, flavour and vaper production is outstanding. Of course, the ability to customise how my tank looks is also another great feature.
Let’s just say I’m in love!
