Esige VDT Intro
In this article we review the Esige VDT sub ohm tank. We just reviewed the Esige Everest sub ohm tank and were very impressed with that and this is Esige tech’s other sub ohm tank.
The VDT uses different coils and looks completely different to the Everest tank. It comes with two dual vertical coils: 0.2ohm and 0.6ohm and is capable of firing up to 90W on the 0.6ohm coil.
The VDT features a metal cover over the Pyrex tank to protect it from smashing. The VDT we were using, had diamond cut outs in the steel cover to view how much e-juice you had left.
One thing to note is that the coils on the Everest are not interchangeable with the ones on the VDT tank.
I cannot find a price for the Esige VDT sub ohm tank, but I assume it will be cheaper than the Everest, as it lacks some of the features the Everest has.
Esige VDT Specs and Features
Vaping the Esige VDT on the 0.6ohm (Recommended wattage: 20-100W)
20W – Nothing
30W – Still not much
40W – A little bit of vapor now and a tiny bit flavor
50W – Getting warmer now but not hot at all. Lovely flavor coming through and good clouds
60W – Getting quite hot now on longer inhales and as the VDT doesn’t have the drip tip with the air flow the drip tip gets slightly warm. Big clouds now and the flavor is great
70W – Flavor is outstanding, but the vapor is getting warmer
80W – Flavor even better, but you can’t do longer inhales now as the vapor is just too hot and the drip tip gets quite warm as well
90W – No dry hits yet at all and the flavor remains great. Big clouds similar to those on the Matrix
100W – Still wicking very well and no dry hit issues at all.
Our sweet spot on this coil was around 70W.
Vaping the 0.2 ohm coil on the Esige VDT tank (recommended wattage 70-80W)
50W – Great flavor already wow and the clouds are big
60W – I’d say even better flavor now, and the vape is nice and warm
70W – Lovely flavor again and even bigger clouds now. Vapor quite warm and gets hot on longer inhales
80W – Verging on a burnt hit now. Got a massive burnt hit on my second inhale, so wouldn’t recommend 80W at all
We really liked the looks of the VDT tank we tried. It is covered with a steel protection to protect it from any damage. The one we used had little diamond shaped windows, which looked really nice.
Flavor and Clouds
The clouds on the VDT tank were bigger than those on the Esige Everest. We got lovely plumes of warm vapor. Do note that this tank will get through a lot of e-juice, as is the case with most sub ohm vaping tanks. Bear this in mind please when choosing your nic levels. We use 3mg with all of our sub ohm tanks and that is more than enough!
5ml Tank Capacity
I think the 5ml tank capacity is pretty good and definitely necessary, seeing as how much e-juice you will get through!
Lacks Some of the Features the Esige Everest Has
I think the VDT will be priced lower than the Everest, so it is good to bear this in mind when comparing the two tanks. The VDT doesn’t have the additional air flow in the drip tip and also doesn’t have the RBA section, or easy swap coil system. The clouds on the VDT were slightly bigger and the flavor was outstanding on both tanks, perhaps slightly better on the VDT.
Air Flow is Slightly Tight
The air flow ring on the VDT tank is, as on the Everest, slightly tight and tricky to move into place, especially when the tank is screwed onto a box mod. It’s not a major issue but something that could be improved upon.
Swapping Coils Was Tricky
The VDT doesn’t feature the nice easy coil swap system that the Everest has. This means you will need to open up the whole tank and unscrew the coil out of the chimney. We struggled to get the coil out and had to remove the whole Pyrex glass to get the coil out, which meant there was e-liquid all over the place. It wasn’t impossible, but we much preferred the easy swap system on the Everest sub ohm tank. Perhaps they could add that system to this tank too?
It is a bit difficult to conclude this review, as I do not know what price this tank will be set at. I think if it was around the $20 mark it would be a fantastic purchase, as the flavor and clouds were great! I like the design and the 5ml tank capacity as well.
However we found the Everest to be the superior tank overall because of its RBA and better features, despite the flavor on the VDT perhaps being a touch more pronounced.
So, it will depend on what the price will be for the VDT, but it is definitely worth taking a look at, especially if you are prone to dropping tanks, as the steel casing will protect it!
