UNIX by Univapo

Firstly, a big thank you to Univapo for sending this in for review. They were very generous and sent three kits and two boxes of coils! So, look out for a giveaway!

Here is what Univapo have to say:

"Introducing the UNIVAPO Unix starter kit. With the concept of “Less is more”, the Unix starter kit adopts a front symmetrical arc design with aluminium alloy in a compact and ergonomic style. Equipped with the unique and novel “Functions All in One Button” mod design and the advanced rotating top filling system with childproof tank design, Unix takes a step ahead of others in the starter kit market.

"Univapo engineers made 10,000 times tests on different ratios of materials to guarantee the full tastes of every juice can be inspired through the coils. The 1.3ohm coil and 1.6ohm coil can respectively meet the demands of restricted direct lung vapers and mouth to lung vapers."

In use

Delivery was prompt from them and, as I said, I received three kits, two standard and one child proof device. I opted for the black standard kit, they had printed Plant of the Vapes on the device itself which was a nice touch. I'm not sure if the other have that printed too as I have not opened them.

It was well packaged and came with everything you need to get going, it’s a very easy to use starter kit.

On the screen you can see the wattage, volts, puff time in seconds, and battery life.

I started with the 1.6Ohm coil as this was installed. I filled it with some Juice Head 10mg Nic Salt and let it sit for about 10 mins. I started off at around 8 watts but slowly I increased the wattage upwards to 16W. It took about 30 puffs or so to break in the coil. I am not normally a big fan of BVC coils so I wasn’t really expecting too much, but once the coil broke in, I actually started to enjoy it. The airflow control is very good, and to change the wattage you just turn the wheel. I had the airflow a third open at 16W and it was a nice mtl vape.

It is very simple to use, five clicks on and off, three clicks to lock the wattage and that’s really it, nothing complicated.

To fill, you turn the top ring round and you will find a good sized fill hole which has the silicone seal round it to stop any leaking.

After five days I decided to try the 1.3Ohm coil. This provided slightly more flavour. The only difference was it was slightly airier so I just closed down the airflow a little more until I found my sweet spot. You can do RDL, but I think it’s more suited to mouth to lung vapers personally.

So, what’s the difference between the standard and childproof? Ok so, the main difference is, when filling the childproof version, you need to lift the top ring and then turn, and to get to the coil you have to push and click to open it up, whereas with the std version you just unscrew.

Univapo UNIX coils

Pros

  • Very easy to use
  • No leaking
  • Small and discreet
  • Decent quality (except for the wheel)
  • Flavour is good
  • Nice colour choices
  • Option for a dual child proof lock system
  • Battery childproof lock system – it will automatically lock after 3 minutes of no use
  • Magnetic top dust cap
  • USB C
  • 1000 mAh – good for an MTL device

CONS

  • It’s a little old skool compared to what is coming up in the POD and AIO world, but I know there are many people that still prefer this starter kit set up.
  • Coil life – they lasted about 5-7 days and then I noticed the flavour change and drop
  • To get the best flavour you need to have the wattage set at the higher end, somewhere around 15-17W
  • The wattage wheel could break off easily as it does not sit flush, I can imagine ripping it off by mistake

DeeDee’s Scoring – 7/10

This is ideal for a first-time vaper or anyone looking for a small tank mod MTL set up but prefer a more ‘old skool style’.
