First up let’s have a look at the mod – yes the name makes me chuckle – I am such a child. Plus I have to say the looks and specs remind me heavily of the OBS Cube mod too…istick rim components

Again similar to the Cube it has an internal 3000mAh battery and maximum output is 80W.istick rim battery

The user modes are a bit vague at present, there is mention of “Smart Dry-burn protection”. Which appears to be a kind of automatic temperature control to help prevent the coil in the tank running dry and burning out.istick rim auto temp control

The body comes in plenty of colour finishes which use IML (In Mould Labelling) technology which is a kind of protected printed finish.istick rim iml finish

Also the mod charges using the USB C cable and can be fully charged in 40 mins with compatible charging ports!istick rim charging

The full kit includes the Melo 5 sub ohm tank.melo 5 tank

The tank uses the EC range of coils – the EC-M (0.15ohm mesh) is also used in the Melo 4 in the iStick Pico X kit and I loved it! Also included is an EC-S SS316L coil which is 0.6ohm and works with the Auto Temperature control system on the Rim mod.melo 5 ec-s coil

Also there is a locking top fill cap and a liquid control shut off too for when changing the coil.melo 5 liquid fill control

So can you excuse the name and carry around the Eleaf iStick Rim kit? Let me know in the comments below!

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!
