Freemax Scylla Intro
Today I am going to be taking a look at the Freemax Scylla, yet another sub ohm tank to hit the market with the option of ceramic coils. How does it compare to the other tanks recently reviewed? Below I take a closer look.
The presentation box the Freemax Scylla comes in is of good quality. A simple but sturdy box complete with the tank and all extras held tightly. No damage to the tank or any of the spares; it was good to see.
Aesthetics and Design
The style of the tank is great overall; although the two-part drip tip and top fill cap isn’t the best. There is a little gap and it also adds to the height of the tank unnecessarily, but apart from that I like the styling.
I like how the tank has engravings, which are noticeable but not too over-the-top. There is nothing crazy, but you can see the markings if you look for them; a nice touch, I think.
Performance of the Freemax Scylla
This tank performs excellently! The tank has a selection of coils to choose from; at the moment I have been using the clapton coil which really does shine. The flavour is fantastic as well as excellent vapour production from a relatively low wattage.
The ceramic coil, too, performed very well, but I felt it was a little lacking on the cloud front, compared to the likes of the Vapeston Ceramikas. However, the flavour was flawless, definitely on par with the other ceramic coil tanks I have tried. I would put this in between the Vaporesso tank and the Vapeston Ceremikas right now.
The anti spitback design works extremely well; I haven’t had any spitback once from this tank which is fantastic. However, the anti-leaking system hasn’t lived up to expectation. The first fill of the tank resulted in a tankful of juice being dumped on my desk and all over my mod! A couple of other times I have experienced some minor leaking issues.
I like the fact you can use both ceramic and standard freemax coils within this tank. It means you’re not limited to the type of coil and means if you don’t like ceramic wicking you don’t have to use it. The previous Freemax tanks the Starre and Starre Pro coils will also work with the Freemax Scylla, which I think is a fantastic feature. The Freemax Scylla also comes with a rebuildable coil section (they call it an RTA coil) for those who don’t want to use the stock coils.
Top Fill System
The top filling on the Freemax Scylla is one of the easiest I have used, very simple and a lot easier than the likes of the Vapeston Ceremikas.
I really like the airflow on this device; it’s a great mix between being large enough to handle the higher wattages and keep the vape cool but not too crazy that it feels all too airy. For me the airflow is just about perfect.
The leaking issues I have had whilst they haven’t been too major, they are still an inconvenience. If Freemax could perfect the anti-leak system this tank would certainly be a winner in my eyes.
If what you want is a good ceramic-coil tank that will also take standard coils and work with the previous coils from the Freemax Starre and Pro, then this is a fantastic tank. If you were a fan of the previous Freemax Starre and Starre Pro tanks, then you will not be disappointed with the Scylla as it will also give you the option to try the new ceramic coil. It is definitely on par with the Vapeston Ceramikas and Vaporesso Target tank, my two favourite ceramic tanks so far for flavor. The clouds on the Freemax Scylla ceramic coils are however lacking, as seems to be the case with a lot of the ceramic coils.
