Limit, the dual use atomizer by Kizoku
For today’s review decided to tell you about a new atomizer, actually already present on some Italian shops, but which so far it seems to us has gone quite unnoticed to the italian public. The atomizer is the Limit by Kizoku (a brand belonging to the Chinese manufacturer Vapeonly Technology). The Limit has a singular (and perhaps unpublished in our memory) feature, it is a dual use atomizer that can be used both as a rebuildable atomizer (RTA) and as clearomizer (premade coils). Its field of use ranges from pure MTL vape to restricted flavor chasing (restricted DL).
We will look closely at the Limit to understand if the apparent disinterest shown by our market towards it is justified or not.
We begin to observe it starting as usual from the contents of the package.

DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY
The Limit, built entirely in 304 stainless steel, does not present any type of construction imperfection, is well made and leaves a good sense of solidity in the hand. We believe that it cannot be included in the top end of the range high end atomizers, but in our case its construction quality is unquestionably good for the entry level market segment. Appreciable are the technical solutions of the knurled finishes of the top cap for the refill and of the airflow ring, functional and at the same time also visually pleasing.
The only notes that can be made to this product in terms of construction quality, concern the 510 pin (not adjustable) that is very little protruding, such as not to make it probably ideal for use on mechanical mods, and the airflow ring whose sealing o-ring appears a little too loose. Beyond these, however, minimal imperfections, the Limit convinced us for its features and also for the sober and clean design that distinguishes it.
The Limit is a compact device with a diameter of 22mm, with a height of about 56mm and a weight of just over 55g; the capacity is about 3 ml (although some sites and the sample packaging in our possession indicate only 2 ml of capacity).
It consists of eight pieces in total but it must be said, to reassure the many readers, that it is not at all necessary to disassemble them all for the usual washing and cleaning operations. Starting from the top we therefore have the 510 drip tip, the top cap, the upper part of the vaporization chamber, the glass tank, the lower part of the chamber with the chimney, the deck, the airflow ring and the base.
The main feature of this atomizer is that it can be used both as a rebuildable (RTA) and with premade coils. To switch from one configuration to the other, simply unscrew the deck and replace it with the head coil. To make the product as attractive as possible and absolutely performing, the manufacturer decided to suit this atom for the BVC Aspire coils of Nautilus 2 series, without a doubt among the best (if not the best) on the market especially for the MTL vape .
The deck is a single coil with opposing turrets with a 2mm diameter hole under the coil. The space between the two turrets and the size of the trays for inserting the cotton suggest the use of a 2.5 mm diameter coil with a resistive value (in our opinion) between o, 8 and 1.3 ohm. The chimney is rather small and has three slots at the bottom for the e-liquid inlet. In the upper part, the chimney ends with a 3.5 mm hole, which perfectly connects to the hole of the drip tip. The bottom air control has been designed to be used with different combinations: you can choose between a buttonhole completely open and partialized to your liking, or you can have fun with the solution with single holes (all with a diameter of 1, 2 mm) choosing from a minimum of 1 hole up to a maximum of 6 open holes.
COILING, WICKING AND FILLING
It is very easy to use the Limit in clearomizer configuration, as the head coil must simply be unscrewed/screwed back on the atom and then wait a few minutes after loading the e-liquid into the tank. But let’s see what happens if you use the rebuildable deck. If you use the Limit in RTA configuration and you have a minimum of knowledge with this type of systems, the coil insertion operations will be easier and more immediate than ever. The positioning of the cotton is also quite easy, even if a minimum of care is required on the portion of cotton that will have to emerge from the small side slits of the trays. It is important not to press the cotton too much into the trays, leaving a minimum of space necessary for the e-liquid to rise towards the coil.
Also the e-liquid refill on the Limit (top refill) is very simple and absolutely safe, thanks to a childproof system that prevents even the slightest leakage. To fill the tank, simply turn the knurled ring of the top cap counterclockwise, and slide it by pushing at the small arrow drawn on the atom body. At this point, a filling buttonhole will appear, equipped, among other things, with a silicone (anti-leakage) membrane, where the e-liquid bottle beak must be inserted. The solutions adopted by the manufacturer, although not new in the world of RTAs, have all been created with incredible meticulousness and precision.
PERFORMANCES AND FLAVOUR
Precisely because of its “dual” nature, it seemed necessary to test and analyze the performance of the Limit in the two possible configurations, with premade coils and as rebuildable atomizer.
Test with Aspire Nautilus BVC heads
We used the 0.7 ohm BVC head coils (18-23 watt vaping range) and the 1.8 ohm BVC head coils (10-14 watt vaping range). The puff is precise and silent and the hit is far from negligible. No condensation problems or liquid leaks. Finally, the most important thing, the aromatic performances appeared identical to those of an Aspire Nautilus 2s, the latest from to the large Nautilus family; to be clear we are in the top of the range in terms of performance in the field of head coil atomizers for MTL vape.
Test with regenerable deck
From one excellent performance to another. The Limit surprised us a lot also and above all as RTA atomizer. Very silent, fluid and with a commendable hit. The puff can vary from restricted flavor chasing to closed and contrasted mouth to lung vape. In our tests, never a leak, never an annoying hiss or gurgling and absolutely no condensation problems under the drip tip. It is difficult to ask for more from an atomizer which, despite its simplicity, is technically perfect … Especially if you add to it all high quality aromatic performances.
Thanks to a rather small vaporization chamber, the Limit is an atomizer that “dries” (as they say in jargon), and is therefore able to enhance the aromatic scores of complex but slightly sweet fruity e-liquids and dark tobacco blends. We are faced with an RTA that more than amalgamate and unite, tends to facet the components of e-liquids very well, which, wanting to be picky, probably makes it lose a little something with the creamy and creamy tobacco flavored e-juices, notoriously in need of atomizers able to round the aromatic structure of an e-liquid.
In general, the Limit unleashed very high quality performances, going beyond all limits of our expectations. Chapeau!
The Limit designers, starting from widely tested solutions in the sector, created a simple atomizer with excellent performance. And then there is the gem of dual use which, as it may seem only the prerogative of an entry level user, in reality this is not the case, believe it. Scout’s honor!
