Trim down your all day vape


The iStick Trim Kit adopts a basic form factor with the slim, mod paired with the GS Turbo Tank. Its lightweight frame houses an 1800 mAh internal battery and LED battery bar that indicates how much battery life you have left.

To keep things simple, Eleaf has included three power settings – high, medium and low – with a maximum output wattage of 22 watts.

The paired, 1.8 mL, GS Turbo Tank offers an improved and more adept airflow control system than standard MTL atomizers. This, together with the pre-selected GS air coils, should guarantee intense flavor at low outputs. At least in theory that is…

The iStick Trim Kit is a simplified vaping setup geared towards fans of mouth to lung vaping

Available in a variety of fun colors, this entry level kit offers new users more personalization in this category. Whether it is in fact “better” or “worse” than existing varieties, you be the judge!

But with no notable design features to speak of, I am not convinced that it has enough “edge” to stand out in the crowd. What’s been your experience with Eleaf products so far?

A marketing manager by day and an avid reader - and vaper - by night, I came into the vape scene almost by accident and have never looked back. You will find me in sunny South Africa where I am mostly always curled up on the couch with a good book and a fruity vape. At other times, I am known to indulge my unhealthy obsession with musical theatre and live comedy shows, in that order.
