Last month, I introduced you to the Brix Kit, by Diamond Mist. For those of you who missed out, it’s a great little mod with style and performance at the forefront of its creation. This month I’m telling you about the Mini Cumulus Tank.
The Mini Cumulus is the new, TPD compliant, tank from Diamond Mist. It has a capacity of 2ml and is 22mm in diameter. Inside the tank is a 0.5ohm vertical Kanthal coil which is recommended to be used at 20-60w. Filling the tank is extremely easy with the two large kidney-shaped holes under the base of the top cap. The airflow is fully adjustable at the base and has a clicking action to lock in your desired airflow option.
So, how’s the flavour? While using a 70/30 VG/PG liquid I used the tank at roughly 40w with the airflow fully open. In my opinion this gives the best flavour from the tank and the correct temperature as well. The flavour surprised me. Of course it’s not going to be RDA quality but it definitely rivals flavour from tanks such as the Aspire Cleito!
The 0.5ohm coils have lasted, on average, two-three weeks of use before needing to be replaced due to loss of flavour and a slight burnt taste.
There’s not a lot I didn’t like about the Brix Kit! The battery life is a bit lacking, so it may not last heavy users a full day, but for people vaping at lower wattages, and less frequently, this may last all day.
The other thing I’d like to mention is the lack of a spare coil. You only receive the one included in the tank and I would have preferred a spare coil rather than a spare drip tip.
As for the positives - where to start? The Brix is easy to use and navigate; the capacity of the Mini Cumulus is about right and the flavour is great. Plus, the coils lasted me an average of two to three weeks, which is really good! The kit has a quality feel to it, especially the grip on the box, which I found to be extremely durable.
Overall - a very nice bit of kit! I would recommend this to novice vapers looking to get into sub-ohm vaping, or even more experienced vapers looking for a nice, stealthy kit to have handy when needed.
