A Juice tester

The XIV is a flavor oriented atomizer. Designed to be a juice tester it’s vapor chamber is reduced to the max and mono-coil only. Around this simple concept we reduced the number of parts by using specific materials and unconventional shaped parts to give each one more than one technical functions, like the clamping ceramic bar for example.

Ergonomically, the tightening of the resistance is carried out via a single oversized hand nut, the positioning of the "top cap" allows 4 airflow settings offering a tight draw up to an aery one, and the 2 included central posts allow to mount the XIV on conventional mods or BF.

On the design side, the shapes and lines of the XIV are derivated of the "streamline" movement,  giving it this nice look and a very low profile ranking among the smallest. Designing around this ultra reduced tank will allow us to vary the size, materials, colors and shape of upcoming new topcaps.

The box

Matte black and golden logos, made entirely of wood and with a simple design, the storage box has a reversible lid, a plain one and the other which can be used as a mounting base or as a display. The bottom of the box is covered with felt. Main idea here is that this box will find its place more easily on a desk or shelf.

Summary :

- Ultra-reduced chamber 6x5x6.5mm

- Visible height of 14mm (without the extension of driptip)

- 4 airflow settings: 1x1.3mm, 2x1.3mm, 3x1.5mm, 3x2mm

- 2 center posts, a conventional one and a BF compatible one.

- 99% alumina ceramic clamping bar (ultra insulator, ultra mechanical and chemical resistances, inert material)

- Vitton o’rings

- Peek and Teflon insulators

- Additional 4mm extender driptip in delrin

- Engravings on nut and tank

- top cap Ø24mm black Delrin

How to build - our recommandation

Build with a Ø2.5mm micro-coil, 8 turns with a nichrome wire, target resistance around 1 ohm for mechanical mod or 1.2 ohm for regulated mod. Recommanded power usage is 12W to 20W.
Coil can be placed from a vertical or horizontal position.

We strongly advise to not use any tool but only bare hand to tighen your coil. Ceramic is harder than metal but will break under too much pressure where metal would bent. You just need to get your coil in place and tighen so it don't move.

 

 

THIS IS A PREORDER

Get the XIV as early as possible

Why running a preorder?

We want to accelerate the making of new parts, like the Ultem kit or Ø22mm topcaps, and offer them as options as early as possible.

What’s in the box?

The preorder is for the full retail version of the XIV atomizer as described before:

-        XIV atomizer with Ø24m black Delrin topcap, full set with both BF/classical pins and spare o’rings

-        Our custom presenter woodbox

-        As a preorder BONUS we will include the Ø24mm SS topcap (will be a 20€ option)

When do I get it?

Availability is scheduled for mid-end September. The production is in progress and on the right tracks, will follow our usual steps of cleaning, inspection, assembly and packaging. We systematically clean each piece and we do the assembly with a bit of VG on the o’rings so that you receive a ready-to-use atomizer.

Preorders will be sent immediately, then the vape shops, the reviewers, and finally the website.

What are the risks of this pre-order?

The project is already fully funded, the only risk is that we get a series of parts that does not conform to our specifications from the machining, which could delay the launch for a few weeks.
