Eleaf Melo 300 Intro

Eleaf has just announced its current version of the Melo tank: the Melo 300. The previous Melo tanks have been a staple of many vapers for years but this version is markedly different, and the name offers a clue – that 300 signifies the upper wattage rating of this Melo’s operating range.

The Melo 300 will be available in two versions, 3.5ml and 6.5ml tank capacity and your choice of black or stainless steel finish. Either will accept their ES sextuple 0.17Ω coils with an operating range between 100W-300W.

The Melo 300 offers large adjustable bottom airflow, with a knurled AFC ring to feed those six coils and a retractable top fill system to feed the tank. To fill, you just slide the top cap to the side to expose the fill port, top off the the tank, and slide it back.

Melo not so mellow

Eleaf-Melo-300

Using sextuple 0.17Ω coils with an oprating range between 100W-300W the Melo 300 should be able to go toe-to-toe with some of the other tanks offering 300W at the top end. It’s nice that the tank is offered in two versions for those that want a lower profile look, but I suspect that the smaller 3.5ml tank will need to be refilled quite often.

Oh, that’s right, it should be a breeze with the sliding top cap. Perfect.

Looking at the tank, the only possible downside I can see is that the coil cannot be replaced without emptying the tank – not necessarily a deal breaker, but potentially messy.

With quite a few new high output three and four cell mods hitting the market, there is a suddenly increased demand for sub ohm tanks capable of running at blistering wattages of 300W and higher. Eleaf steps up with the 300, and you can be confident that you will be getting a quality piece from a trusted manufacturer in Eleaf.
