Tobeco Turbo

Designed by Ohm Nation in the USA and manufactured by Tobeco, who manufacture many products, from RDA's to mechs. However, the vast majority of its wares are typically clones of other manufacturer's designs. The Turbo diverges from that trend and is a fully authentic RDA. Incorporating a turbine fan into the top cap of the atomizer, it is designed to help boost airflow and vapour production. Is it truly a game changer or something else entirely? We shall see.

To be honest when I first saw this RDA my thoughts were pretty negative. I considered it to be a pointless gimmick. In some respects it still is. However in its defence it is a very well made RDA. The screws are good, the post holes are large enough to accommodate most builds and the well capacity is generous.

It's very easy to build due to plenty of room, the flavour is reasonable and the annoying noise can be reduced to an acceptable level. With the fan to help it makes for a comfortable/effortless vape that will produce pretty good clouds and for very low sub ohm builds it seems to help with a slightly cooler vape.

I feel that someone who is quite open minded and doesn't mind spending a little on something a bit wacky and different might get a lot of enjoyment from this RDA, its quite easy to appreciate its uniqueness.

However we choose to judge the Turbo, Tobeco should be commended firstly for starting to move towards authentic, reasonably priced products and secondly for at least trying to produce something different in a world of very similar looking RDA's. The design is certainly innovative and may promote other manufacturer's to come up with fresh ideas. It's an interesting enough and well made RDA, but won't be for everyone.

Dave Junglist is co-owner of Planet of the Vapes and has been vaping since 2015.  He spent his early years with his head in a bass bin and was a very committed and experienced smoker.  He had his first cigarette at the age of 13 and just knew it was for him.  He did stop briefly with the aid of patches but reverted quickly and became a ‘secret’ smoker, working hard to keep his weak will from the attention of his family.  Vaping made an honest man of him and for this he is forever thankful. He has been involved in websites since completing a degree in Environmental Science in the late nineties.  At that time there was pretty much no contact with computers but on joining the regular workforce and deciding that the world-wide-web was the future he blagged his first job as a web designer and never looked back. As you would expect from a junglist, Dave likes his beats and is most comfortable when the bass is wobbly.
