Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil

A new rebuildable tank atomizer from Digiflavor is the Fuji GTA (Genesis Tank Atomiser), available in single or dual coil configurations. We've already had a look at the single coil version of the Fuji GTA, so today we will be looking at the dual coil version.

The dual coil version of the Fuji GTA features a 5.5ml capacity, and a unique elevated build deck inspired by Genesis Tank Atomiser elements. It's manufactured from Stainless Steel with a reinforced Pyrex glass tank section, and has adjustable airflow present around the base of the drip tip and base of the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil itself. Two internal airflow holes at each side of the deck help to aid with cooling the temperature of the vape down and a unique vacuum effect created by the tank aim to maximize flavour performance.

What's in the box?

Inside the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil kit you get the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil tank itself, a replacement glass tank section, a multitude of different o-rings, a screwdriver multi tool, spare post screws and a 510 drip tip adaptor.

Design and build quality

Manufactured from Stainless Steel with a glass tank section, with a 25mm width and 46mm height, the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil is a good looking tank and manufactured very well indeed, with clean lines, smooth threading and no sharp edges present. Black and Stainless Steel finishes are available. Styling-wise it borrows design cues from the popular Geek Vape Griffin tank, which comes as no surprise with Digiflavor being part of the Geek Vape stable. 

It has a 5.5ml tank capacity that can be refilled through the top or the bottom of the tank. To top fill you simply remove the top cap to access the two cavernous filling ports, which accept any type of bottle nozzle comfortably. There is also adjustable airflow on the top cap, and a removable wide bore Delrin drip tip. This features a non standard fitting however so if you wish to use your own 510 threaded drip tips, you'll need to make use of the included 510 drip tip adaptor on the spares pack.

The chimney is fixed to the top cap so that when you unscrew the tank from the base, you can access your build and make adjustments even with juice present in the tank, you just need to invert the tank section so that juice doesn't come spilling out of the bottom of the tank section. Using this method you can also fill the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil from the bottom.

The base of the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil includes engravings, such as Fuji/D (D standing for Dual Coil), a unique serial number, CE mark and ‘Designed and Manufactured by Digiflavor’. An adjustable 510 connector is present with gold plating.

Airflow

On the top cap of the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil you'll notice four airflow slots around the base of the drip tip fitting. These can be used to aid in cooling down the vapour, by opening the slots up, or warming it up further by closing it off. My preference is to have them closed down as I prefer a warmer vape, but the option is there to suit your preferred style. 

At the base of the tank are two huge cyclops airflow slots each measuring in at 14mm x 2mm each, which feed directly into the chamber for maximum effectiveness. The airflow control ring itself operates with a satisfying click, and holds your desired airflow setting in place, it's very easy to adjust on the fly even with the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil screwed into a mod.

Building the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil

One of the unique features around the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil is that the deck itself is actually raised up from the base of the tank. When you unscrew the tank section off of it, the deck is revealed as the chamber and chimney are integrated into the top cap. There's a lot of space to build with here, so if you prefer building large coils for high power then you won't run into any trouble.

The build deck sports the popular two post Velocity styled design, with four large post holes present. The grub screws trap your coil legs down nicely, and you can fit large coils designed for high power use without any fuss. A large airflow hole is present on each end of the deck, which you will need to place your coils just over (I found placing them around 1mm above the holes was perfect), and there is a large cut out on each corner of the deck for your wick tails. 

My preferred build with the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil has been to use the UD Pre-Built Specialty 26/32awg SS316L/Kanthal A1 coils, with a dual coil build this came out at 0.25ohm. Wicking is a breeze with the two wicking cut outs, I wicked using Kendo Vape Cotton Gold Edition and ensured that my wick tails trailed down to the base of the tank. You shouldn't get any issues wicking even the highest of VG juices as long as you have wicked correctly. 

Performance

With its dual coil deck and large wicking cut outs, the Fuji GTA is designed to be vaped at high power settings. With the 0.25ohm dual coil build I used, I found that pushing the wattage up to the 70-80W mark gave me the best results from the Fuji GTA Dual Coil, the flavour and vapour was phenomenally good from this tank at that power range in my experience. It does provide a rich and flavourful vaping experience, with flavour that I believe bettered the results I got from the Griffin RTA.

There is a huge amount of airflow present and the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil is able to produce a pretty huge amount of vapour using this cavernous airflow. It's definitely able to compete with a lot of other cloud chasing tanks out there, and you'll be filling a room with vapour in no time with this tank!

It wicks extremely well indeed, and I've chain vaped 100% VG Kind Juice Little Mean Vanilla Bean, which is a very thick juice, at 75W without running into any wicking issues or dry hits. Best of all, I haven't experienced a single leak from this tank. I have even managed to push the Fuji GTA Dual Coil up to 100W, and it's wicked just fine, however even with the bottom and top airflow fully open it is a hell of a warm vape! 

With the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil working best at high wattage, it is a thirsty beast of a tank, and gets through e-liquid like no tomorrow! You need to use a lot of wick which soaks up e-liquid fast, and even though it sports a large 5.5ml capacity you will be refilling this often with constant usage. 

Conclusion

All in all I couldn't help but be impressed with the excellent performance from the Digiflavor Fuji GTA Dual Coil. The flavour really surprised me with how deep and flavourful it was, even at high wattage, and the vapour that this tank produces I found to be outstanding. It's a real two in one tank that is able to provide top class flavour and vapour, with a nice and easy build thanks to its unique raised deck system.
