Atom Vapes Goes Retro
The Atom Vapes Metropolis sub-ohm tank comes from a company best known for its excellent third-party coils. With an inexpensive price and a distinct retro-chic design, Atom Vapes hopes to win the hearts of many vapers (and sell them some replacement coils to boot). At a glance, the Atom Vapes Metropolis brings a lot to the table for a very low price. Here’s a look at this upcoming sub-ohm tank.

Inspired By the 1920s
The aesthetics of the Atom Vapes Metropolis were inspired by the art-deco style of the 1920s. The O-rings on the base and drip tip have bold lines, while the section above the airflow-control ring has beveled edges. While I generally prefer understated designs, I appreciate the looks of the Metropolis. It’s visually distinct without being gaudy.
Under the hood, Atom Vapes went to great lengths to ensure flavor purity by coating any metals that touch e-liquid. The silver model ($19.99 MSRP) is silver-plated, while the gold model ($21.99) is gold plated. This ensures that your e-liquid only touches glass or high-quality metal when vaping on an Atom Vapes Metropolis.
The tank is compatible with Atom Vapes gClapton Kanger coils, which are available in a number of resistances and materials. It also appears to have ample airflow. Between the variety of coils and the airflow options, it should be easy to find the right vape for you on the Atom Vapes Metropolis.
The Atom Vapes Metropolis tank will be available before the end of the month. Considering its price and the materials used, it looks like a compelling product. The only question mark I have at this time was the decision to go with a bottom-refill system, which is seems a bit dated these days. While bottom-fill allows for a clean look, most sub-ohm tanks released in the last few months offer the convenience of top refilling. That said, I’m intrigued to see what the Atom Vapes Metropolis offers from a price/performance ratio. How about you?
