NO LONGER AVAILABLE
SUITABLE FOR REGULAR AND SUB-OHM VAPING.
This was my second ever sub-ohm device (after first trying the Vapouriz SubTank) and luckily, by my second attempt, I’d pretty much figured out the basics of sub-ohming and how to do it without coughing up a lung.
The best thing, and the first thing, you should know about the JacVapour Series-B Tilt is that you can use it for ‘regular’ vaping (using the kind of liquid you would use in your JacVapour 510, for example), or you can use it for sub-ohming to provide you with a room full of clouds. It will depend on the kind of tank you use on it, something I’ll go into shortly.
I’d tried the rest of the JacVapour range, including their Series-E and 510 models, which have proved to be two of my favourites and highest-rated e-cigs, and I’d also tried the majority of the e-liquid range, details of which you will find in the reviews. For more information, check out the following…
But I’d loved the rest of them so I had high hopes for the Series-B Tilt. Luckily, I wasn’t disappointed….
JacVapour Series-B Tilt – £49.99
I’ll be honest, buying this device isn’t simple. Well, not for me anyway. You can buy the device only for £49.99 which gives you the ‘shell’ of the unit, no tank and no battery. I found this pointless. Why would you buy the device without a battery? The tank I can understand but the battery itself…? (According to the website, many vapers already have them. I didn’t?)
Anyway, you can buy the unit with a Geni Aero Tank Mega (which allows for ‘regular’, mouth-to-lung vaping) but still no battery for £54.99.
You can also get the sub-ohm tank instead of the ‘regular’ vaping tank for £59.99 but again, no battery.
Finally, there’s the Series-B Tilt RTA Advanced Kit for £65.99 (still no battery), but this is for people who build their own coils, something I’m not brave enough to try yet. I don’t want to blow myself up. (I’m a natural blonde… Me and electricity, etc. do not mix!)
You can buy the batteries you need from JacVapour and you’ll need to look at IMR18650 batteries. It doesn’t look like you can buy the one I have any longer – 3.7v, 2500mAh 35Amp. It looks as if the website only offers 10A and 20A. The website also states that you should use 20A batteries to use all the features the Series-B Tilt device has to offer.
(Slightly worrying that mine says 35A and I can no longer find it…?)
Speaking of batteries, I used my Series-B Tilt with the battery they supplied (not sure what the scary monster-face design is all about) with the above specifications. How long it lasted depended on what kind of tank I used with it.
For mouth-to-lung or ‘regular’ vaping, you’ll get two full days out of it before you’ll need to charge it up. For battery capacity, I’ve never come across anything like it. Top marks, JacVapour!
For sub-ohm vaping, or direct-to-lung, you’ll get about a day’s worth out of it. It depends how much you use it and generally, Dan and I tend to alternate between a sub-ohm and regular tank anyway.
You won’t need two batteries, that’s all I’m saying. Dan tends to use the Series-B Tilt everyday now because it gives you the best of both worlds. If you want a discreet, light vape, you put the smaller, regular tanks on and when you want a heavier, heartier, cloudier vape, you simply switch to a sub-ohm tank and use sub-ohm, high-VG liquid.
As a little final note, if you do decide to order as a result of reading this JacVapour Series-B Tilt review, you are given the option of adding on batteries and other things that are compatible with your device when adding it to your basket. JacVapour have made it a little easier for you. You can add on a Samsung 25R 20A 1500mAh IMR 18650 battery starting at £6.99.
There’s the screen on the front of the device which shows you exactly how much battery power is left so you won’t ever be caught short. I recently tried the Vapouriz VBox 40W and although just as good at the vapour-producing business, I DID miss that screen on the side.
Not only does the screen show you how much battery is left, you’ll also learn what ohm you’re vaping with (the coil), the wattage, and the volts. You can change the volts with the – and + buttons on the side, and just like other vape devices, when you press the power button quickly, five times in a row, the device shuts down, the screen displaying the ‘Series-B’ name.
When you turn the voltage up, you get a much stronger throat hit but it can burn out the coil quicker. If you hold the – or + button (we do it accidentally quite a lot), it’ll whack the voltage right up to 8.0v and not only will you hear an almighty crackling noise as the device springs into life burning far too high, but you’ll burn the coil out super quick. You’ll also get one hell of a throat hit. Be careful of this.
Safety is important when using e-cigs and vaporisers because there are so many really crappy ones out there. I do not agree that these devices are dangerous and if you see the newspaper articles and scare stories and take a closer look, you’ll generally find that the user wasn’t using or charging their e-cig safely, or didn’t follow the instructions given by the manufacturer.
JacVapour are a high quality brand that deliver e-cigs and accessories that won’t break easily. They also deliver high quality e-cigs that are very safe to use. Seriously I’ve thrown, chucked, banged, broken and dropped so many of my JacVapour products and not once have they broken on me. They’ve never stopped working (apart from when the first Series-E battery died after eight months of using it which, by the way, is pretty impressive!) and they’ve never caused me a health or safety concern.
With the JacVapour Series-B Tilt, they’ve mad doubly sure there are no safety concerns by introducing the following safety features:
Easy access to the battery compartment is achieved via the removable magnetic battery cover and the device also features reverse circuit protection to prevent damage should the battery be inserted upside down. As an advanced vaping device it also features short circuit protection, overcharge protection, battery ventilation (top and bottom) and many more safety features.
If safety is your biggest concern when it comes to vaping, JacVapour really are a great brand to go for. They are a bit more expensive than some of the others but you’re paying for a high quality, safe-to-use device. I’d rather pay more to ensure that… Wouldn’t you?
Clearomisers / Tanks
I have used a number of different tanks for the purpose of this JacVapour Series-B Tilt review. I’ve never had any problems with any of them. I’ve used tanks from JacVapour and a few from other places but the ones myself and Dan tend to use with it the most regularly are:
The last two are (just as the name suggests) sub-ohm tanks, designed to be used with sub-ohm liquid, to give you more vapour.
I have not yet tried the 22mm Geni Aero Mega Tank that comes with the Series-B Tilt Premium Kit (mouth to lung or regular vaping). I haven’t tried the JacVapour sub-ohm tank yet either. They are next on my list though… Obviously.
Throat Hit & Vapour
For the most part, the throat hit and vapour you get from the JacVapour Series-B Tilt will very much depend on the tank you’re using it with and the liquid you’re filling it with too. In my experience, when used with a high-quality tank (such as the ones listed above), the throat hit and vapour you get from the device is impressive. It has the capacity to deal with both lots of clouds from sub-ohm vaping, and more discreet vaping with the JacVapour Clear Steam eliquid used in a regular tank like the Geni Aero Mega.
If you’re looking for a device that does everything, this one has it all. Switching and changing the tanks over is simply a matter of screwing it together and it all fits in your hand quite nicely. It’s a decent device and one I would highly recommend using.
For more information on the JacVapour range of e-liquids, check out the JacVapour ELiquid Review.
They have recently introduced a range of sub-ohm compatible liquids with their Picnic DIY E-Liquid Starter Kits which start at £21.99. I haven’t tried these yet either but I’m super excited to. You get everything you need in a neat little box to get you started on creating your very own e-liquid range. You can pick your base (so 70/30 and 3mg would be perfect for sub-ohming with lots of clouds) as well as flavoured liquids, mixing liquids, syringes, marking stickers and more.
What a great little kit!
JacVapour Series-B Tilt Review – The Conclusion
So… What did I think of the JacVapour Series-B Tilt?
Well, it’s a beautiful device. It’s heavy (ish) because it’s great quality, and although the magnetic cover that hides the battery has a tendency to pop off every now and again (especially when dropped), there is very little I could say was wrong about this vaporiser.
It delivers with every puff. It works great with every tank I’ve used on it so far, and I’ve experienced ZERO problems. There’s been no charger faults (something that regularly seems to happen with other brands bizarrely), no gurgling noises, no loss of power. With every puff, from the first to the last, this beast of a vape delivers. The only thing I will say is that the paintwork chips very easily (as you can see from the pictures in the review). That’s a couple of month’s use… But that’s it. That’s the only thing I have to say about it.
To say I’m impressed would be an understatement.
It wouldn’t be fair of me to rate the JacVapour Series-B Tilt with anything less than 5/5 stars.
