Infinite Whizzer Intro
The Whizzer is a sub-ohm clearomizer tank from the Chinese company Infinite. Although I reviewed the Council of Vapor Defiant sub-ohm clearo tank recently, reviewing any sub-ohm clearo tank that uses factory heads feels slightly odd. 2015 was the Year of the Sub-Ohm Clearomizer Tank. 2016 is the Year of the Dedicated RTA. So, questions arise: Why is Infinite producing and marketing a new sub-ohm clearo tank now, in the wake of the tsunami of other such tanks? What distinguishes the Infinite, if anything, from the huge herd of other similar clearo tanks? Can it compete with the likes of the SMOK TFV4 and Uwell Crown? Read on to find out.

The Whizzer is thoughtfully designed and well-manufactured. The design is pleasing, and all the machining is precise. The tank has three modestly-sized air intake slots around the base. The ring that covers or uncovers the slots is infinitely adjustable and clicks as it is turned, which is a nice touch. With the intake slots fully uncovered, the draw is open without being overly airy. With the slots fully covered, the draw is tight, almost suitable for mouth-to-lung vaping, but only at the low end of the coil head’s wattage rating. Otherwise, the vape is too intense. Like most sub-ohm clearo tanks, the design favors a wide-open draw suited to direct lung vaping.
The Whizzer has a number of other features I appreciated. It comes with two glass tank sections of different lengths that allow either 4 mL or 6 mL eliquid capacity. The inner chimney is in two sections that dismantle to convert to the smaller sized tank. With the pre-installed larger tank, the Whizzer is tall — 75 mm — which makes it about the same length as a Crown or FreeMax Starre Pro.
The package comes with two factory coil heads, both of which use 316 stainless dual vertical coils with cotton wicking. A 0.5 ohm head is pre-installed, and a spare 0.3 ohm head is included. Both heads have four large eliquid intake holes, so wicking is never an issue. Wattage ratings are modest: 30–50 watts for the 0.5 ohm head, and 40–70 watts for the 0.3 ohm.
No RBA deck is included, and I tend to doubt that one will appear in the market.
The top fill system is interesting. The drip tip is non-proprietary and can be swapped out for any 510 drip tip the vaper wishes. It fits into the plate that has raised fins for heat reduction. Here’s the interesting part: That plate screws into the top cap and is reverse-threaded. Turn the fins clockwise and the plate unscrews from the top cap, revealing a wide (10 mL) side-mounted eliquid inlet slot. I like top fill systems that don’t require dismantling the tank and removing pieces.
Two important caveats: First, be sure to close off the air intake slots before filling the tank. If the air slots are left open when eliquid is added, the tank will leak like a sieve. I discovered that the hard way when I forgot to close off the air intake during one refill — instant mess and a couple of milliliters of eliquid wasted.
Second, even when closing off the air intake slots, leaking may occur when the slots are re-opened. I hate that, and it’s my harshest criticism of The Whizzer (or any tank). Vaping is not meant to be messy, but in the real world, it is. Kleenex is a necessary part of one’s vaping gear. I’d suggest not filling the Whizzer’s tank entirely full. Leaving an air space at the top of the tank helps to minimize or eliminate leaks after filling.
Both coil heads can exceed their conservative power ratings (50 or 70 watts, depending on the resistance) by 10 watts or more without dry hits or the vapor becoming too warm. Here’s the nice thing, however: I didn’t feel any need to go beyond the rated power. With the pre-installed 0.5 ohm head, the 50W max of the power rating produced a vape that was more than ample — warm and full, with good flavor and full vapor. Some tanks, notably the SMOK TFV4, virtually require vaping at high power (approaching 100 watts) for the tank to perform properly. Not so the Whizzer. It’s very comfortable and performs nicely near the top of the conservative power ratings for each head. That’s a real plus in my book, because I don’t always like vaping at 80–100 watts. I’d rather cruise along at a lower pace well under the speed limit, and the Whizzer is happy to accommodate.
For flavor and vapor production, I’d rate the Whizzer about average for a typical sub-ohm clearo tank. That is to say, both are good, but not up to the standards of the best RDAs or current-generation RTAs. The competition has already paved the way in those departments, and the Whizzer is merely following suit adequately.
As with most sub-ohm clearomizer tanks, the Whizzer is thirsty, especially at the top of the factory heads’ power ranges. Gone are the days when a 30 mL bottle of eliquid would last for a month. This has become so standard with tanks, however, that it hardly qualifies as a criticism. It’s just a fact of higher-power vaping (compared to the old days of vaping at 8-10 watts).
- thoughtful options – dual eliquid capacity, non-proprietary drip tip
- good top-fill system
- decent heads
- performs well at relatively low power
- tendency to leak immediately after filling
- a little late to the party
- might be a bit over-priced relative to the competition
- replacement heads might be hard to find
Overall, the Whizzer won’t win any awards for brilliant innovation or spectacular performance, but it succeeds easily in maintaining the generally high standards of this particular category of atomizers.
Had the Whizzer come to market a year ago, I would have raved about it. Competing against an already well-established field of clearo tanks, however, my reaction is less enthusiastic, although still mostly positive.
If you don’t own a full-size sub-ohm clearo tank or simply want to add another brand to your stable, the Whizzer will suffice.
