The original kit included an internal 3000mAh battery but for the “C” version the mod uses a single 18650 battery. As usual the battery is not included in the kit.rim c kit battery

Like the original the maximum output is 80W and you have a variable wattage user mode to tailor the vape to your preference.rim c kit output

There is a 0.69in screen to view all the user data. screen

I am not seeing any mention of Temperature Control this time but to be fair on review this feature didn’t exactly prevent the dry hits as it was supposed to on the original version.rim c kit charging

The full kit includes the Melo 5 sub ohm tank which is unchanged from the original.

The Melo 5 tank uses the existing range of EC coil heads and two are included in the kit:

  • EC-S 0.6ohm mesh coil SS316L
  • EC-M 0.15ohm mesh coil

The tank has a locking top fill cap and the airflow is adjustable via the bottom control fill

There are 6 colours to choose from – Gradient Red, White, Gradient Blue, Obsidan Blue, Rainbow and Matte Black.rim c kit colours

My name is Michelle - I am 44 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!
