Jac Vapour Series 22 Kit styling and build quality

The S22 is a highly compact device with an excellent ergonomic design that feels extremely comfortable in the hand. There is some nice weight to the device but it is perfectly balanced and not cumbersome at all. Constructed mainly from Steel alloy and featuring an oil rubber finish this device will definitely last you some time. An advantage of the coating is that should any liquid leak down the side of the device the main workings should be very adequately protected.

The single button made from polycarbonate with an oil rubber finish is well fitted, highly responsive and very comfortable to use. A single LED is positioned a short distance below the button and lights up blue when you switch the device on/off and also when you hold down the fire button to vape.

The 510 pin feels durable and most atomizers fit flush with this device. Brandings are kept to a minimum on the S22 and are very tasteful and discrete. Inside the S22 there is a 2600mAh battery which will offer you a good amount of vape time before you need to recharge it.

The device is loaded with numerous safety features which will offer a brand new vaper complete peace of mind.

There is adequate ventilation provided for in the base by six small holes. The Micro USB Port is recessed slightly into the base. When you need to charge the device connect it up with the included cable to a suitable source such as your home computer.

S22 Tank

The included tank is well constructed and holds up to 2ml of E-Liquid. It is fitted with a ABS drip tip/top cap which is quick and easy to remove for quick top ups. The airflow is fully adjustable and caters to either a direct lung inhale style of vaping when using the 0.5ohm Sub Ohm coils or as a MTL vape when the airflow is sufficiently closed down.

One side of the tank features the Jac Vapour logo and the other side features a glass window so you can keep an eye on the juice level. The tank is convenient to clean and fitting a coil is extremely simple. All in all the tank looks highly complementary when fitted to the S22 device and continues to maintain the overall low profile design.

Ease of use

This device is dead easy to use, five clicks switches the device on and five clicks switches it off. You’ll know when it’s on or when your vaping because the LED positioned below the button lights up bright blue. Hold down the fire button to vape. There is no Wattage adjustment to concern yourself with so this is as simple as it gets!

It is important to note that the coil is not pre-fitted. So you will need to remove the base of the tank and fit it. This is a simple task and detailed in the manual. Remember to prime a brand new coil with a little juice and leave the tank for at least 5-10 minutes the first time you fill it up before taking a vape.

To fill the tank first unscrew the drip tip. Squeeze your juice to the side of the fill hole and keep an eye on the glass window. Once full, screw the drip tip/top cap back on.

Performance

1.0ohm MTL Coil

I thought the flavour this included coil offered was seriously good. It makes for a nice clean vape, no matter what E-Liquid you choose to use! Vapour production is reasonable and comparable to the amount of smoke a cigarette would put out. Keep in mind that you will likely need to close down the airflow to get an acceptably tight mouth to lung inhale because fully opened up it was too loose for my tastes.

0.5ohm DL (Direct Lung) S22 Coil

These coils sadly are not included in the kit and have to be purchased separately but Jac Vapour kindly sent us some to try out in the S22. Flavour was a noticeable improvement over the 1.0ohm coil as you’d expect, but that is not to say that the MTL coil doesn’t offer very nice flavour. Vapour production is greatly increased with this coil, but the knock on effect is that both your juice and your battery drains much faster.

I also decided to try out a different atomizer on the S22 device just to see how it performed. I screwed on the Vandy Vape Berserker MTL RTA which being 24mm diameter did overhang a little. I had set this tank up with a 1.0ohm coil. As you’d expect the device did a great job and I couldn’t fault the vape I got!

The S22 will fire down to 0.5ohm Resistance so you do have a bit of flexibility if you want to use other atomizers.

Thanks to the TPD legislation the S22 tank is limited to 2ml capacity, but it isn’t really that much of a problem since the MTL coils do not drain the juice especially quickly. As you can imagine the Sub Ohm coils do hammer the juice to an extent. The fill system is very convenient and makes for quick top ups.

The battery lasts a considerable amount of time since the Wattage is determined by the Resistance of the fitted coil. I got over a day of use out of the device before I had to recharge it. Of course that was mainly using the MTL coil, if you’re using the Sub Ohm coils expect the battery to drain faster. Recharging takes about 2-3 hours which is very reasonable. Keep in mind the device supports pass-through so if you’re really desperate you can vape while charging.

Conclusion

In my opinion the Jac Vapour Series S22 is a superb starter kit. It is extremely well built, feels like it can take a few knocks and is ergonomically designed for comfortable use. Both the device itself and the included S22 tank are so very straightforward which makes them absolutely ideal for the new vaper.

The tank offers a great vape in mouth to lung mode and also does well in direct lung inhale mode, when using the separately purchasable Sub Ohm coils. The 2600mAh battery lasts a considerable amount of time and charging is relatively fast.

My one criticism of this device is the fact that only one coil is included in the kit. In my view it seems a little bit unfair, especially given that a brand new vaper could make a mistake and accidentally burn a coil out. Ideally this kit should have included two coils, perhaps one of each type so a newcomer could quickly discover which type of vape they preferred.

Nevertheless that one shortcoming does nothing to diminish this excellent product. If you planning on making the switch from smoking to vaping, this device comes highly recommended!

If you would like to purchase the Series S22 you can get one directly from Jac Vapour for the very reasonable price of £34.99. Remember to use code POTV15 at the checkout for 15% off your purchase. Make sure to grab yourself a pack of coils at the same time.

Many thanks to Jac Vapour who kindly sent this kit to Planet of the Vapes for us to review.
