A collaboration between vaping powerhouses Sigelei and US based manufacturer Suprimo Vape, the Moonshot is a tiny little RTA powerhouse that is stated to handle up to a whopping 200W! The Moonshot was not only designed to chuck out big vapour from its generous airflow, but also to provide superior flavour production from this small rebuildable machine.
Alongside its high wattage capabilities the Moonshot is a 22mm tank with one of the smallest profiles on the market, a removable two post dual coil RTA deck optimised for big coils and easier wicking saturation, huge adjustable airflow, a comfortable wide bore Delrin drip tip, top filling with a 2ml capacity and high quality materials used in the manufacturing of this tank.
There’s been a lot of buzz around the Moonshot since its release so here are my thoughts...
- 22mm width
- Rated for use at 30-200W
- 2ml capacity
- Removable two post RTA deck
- Innovative wicking deck for improved wicking saturation
- Top filling
- Comfortable wide bore Delrin drip tip
- 304 grade Stainless Steel construction
- Pyrex glass tank section
- PEEK insulators for high heat resistance
- Large adjustable airflow
- Active cooling technology
What’s in the box?
Top marks for packaging here! The Moonshot is packaged in one of the coolest presentation tins you are likely to come across, with a really funky decal. Inside the packaging is the Moonshot RTA itself, with a spare Pyrex glass tank section, two different sizes of hex key, spare post screws and o-ring seals.
Looks and build quality
With a 2ml capacity and 22mm width, the Moonshot is a small low profile RTA manufactured from 304 grade Stainless Steel, with a Pyrex glass tank section, PEEK insulators for high heat resistance and a small wide bore Delrin drip tip. Just be careful when using the Delrin drip tip at high wattage, as you don’t want to burn your lips on the top of the tank! The drip tip is fixed however you can use a 510 threaded drip tip by inserting it into the fixed Delrin wide bore tip. It’s a great looker, and a good fit for pretty much any mod you wish to use it with.
The Moonshot is a top filling RTA, to fill you simply twist off and remove the top cap to reveal two huge fill ports at the top. These are massive and you can simply dump juice straight in from your bottle to fill this in no time at all if you wish. All the threading is dead smooth and manufacturing looks top notch. You access the build deck by unscrewing the tank section from the base, which will come away smoothly, and removing the outer chimney section. The build deck will actually pop out from the base of the Moonshot, more to come on building the Moonshot below…
There is a huge amount of airflow to be found with the Moonshot, with two massive adjustable cyclops airflow slots on either side of the base. The airflow control is superb, very smooth and easy to use, allowing you to finely adjust these two slots as you wish. The Moonshot is a very airy tank and absolutely one for the lung inhalers!
Building the Moonshot
Now the Moonshot is by no means an easy tank to build at first, and it definitely requires a lot of concentration and patience first time around, this is one for the more advanced rebuilders out there. Reason being is that the two post dual coil deck itself comes out from the base, which personally I am no fan of at all, and it only stays fixed if the outer chamber is screwed in which makes building nigh on impossible with this fitted. If the deck is in the base, it will spin when you try and insert your coils, so the easiest way to build is to hold the deck with one hand whilst trying to insert your coil legs into the post holes, which requires a great degree of trial and error to get them to seat properly. The huge 5mm airflow holes at either end of the deck are raised as well, so when you finally fit your coils into the post holes you need to raise your coils up and over this too, whilst being mindful of your coils touching the airflow holes and the chamber too. It can be pretty troublesome fitting those large diameter dual coils needed to withstand 200w of power!
After a couple of builds things start to become second nature, and thankfully wicking is a breeze with the Moonshot. My preferred dual coil build is 10 wraps of 316L Stainless Steel with an internal diameter of 3mm, which comes out at a resistance of 0.55ohm, wicked with Kendo Vape Cotton Gold Edition. These large coils allow me to use the Moonshot at both low and high wattages.
One thing the Moonshot does incredibly well is performing on both the flavour and vapour fronts. I’ve got to admit to not expecting a hell of a lot from this tank when it came to flavour, but the flavour from this tank is phenomenal, almost dripper standard. It has a really smooth flavour delivery even at high wattage, and not once have I ever felt the flavour to ever be flat or muted, and I really feel that this tank is amongst the best RTAs out there in the flavour department.
Clouds produced by the Moonshot are absolutely superb. There’s a massive amount of airflow available and if cloud chasing is your thing, the Moonshot definitely delivers on this front. It’s capable of handling very high wattages but with the airflow on offer here, you really do not need to fire massive amounts of wattage through it to produce huge clouds of tasty vapour. It seems to deliver big clouds with ease, and the huge airflow definitely plays a big part in this.
Wicking is outstanding with the Moonshot, you can use max VG juice with this tank with no fear at all, the large wicking holes keep your wicks constantly fed with juice which is perfect for high wattage vaping too. The Moonshot does however get through juice phenomenally quickly, the capacity is only 2ml and it is also one hell of a thirsty tank, meaning constant refilling when in heavy use.
I’ll admit to being blown away by the Moonshot, and this is one tank that has stayed a regular part of my rotation since I got it. It may be a devil to build but I can forget all that when performance wise, I cannot fault it at all, it just delivers superbly well on the flavour and cloud front and it is incredibly versatile to boot as well, performing exceedingly well at low or high wattages. It’s a great looker too and this small little package is one I have grown to absolutely love!
