Let’s go back to Vaporesso today! On the other hand it is impossible in this last period not to come across one of its products, the Chinese manufacturer has completely invaded the market trying to propose for each segment of the world of vape its way of understanding it, enjoying great success on the public. In the wake of pod mods and all-in-one kits the latest products all go in this direction, also offering great possibility of choice, adapting with new models and small changes both to the beginner and to the more expert looking for simplicity but still of great quality.

Today we will talk with you about an AIO kit (all in one) for a cheek shot. The Orca Solo by Vaporesso, promises in a compact and captivating form factory, an easy and simple use suitable for lovers of cheek shooting and for those approaching this world for the first time.

Let’s start by looking at the contents of the package together.

IN THE BOX

1 x OC CELL coil 1.3Ω
1 x OC coil 1.3Ω
1 x  USB cable
1 x User manual.

DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY

The mod Orca Solo is presented very simply, and its characteristic pen shape, cylindrical, with a simple and clean design. The body is made entirely of stainless steel with an excellent anodised finish. The base has a darker finish and also the central part of the body where we find the air holes, here there is a handy ring with which it is possible to adjust the air. On the very simple body we find a nice fire button finished in soft plastic and with a beautiful relief design that increases the grip, everything is surrounded by an excellent LED that has bright and brilliant colors, on the side we find the USB socket for charging.

Being an AIO kit the resistance must be directly installed in the upper part of the battery, just screw it and put the glass, continuing by mounting the threaded metal cage that will be screwed to the base making the structure complete.

Holding the hand Orca Solo returns a feeling of solidity and really incredible strength. The activation button, located in the upper part, has no play and has a very short stroke, we can say that it behaves perfectly and above all is easily accessible with any type of handle the mod is used.

In simple words, a really practical kit, simple and without too many frills, which makes its peculiarity precisely its ease of use.

ERGONOMICS AND PORTABILITY

The cylindrical pen-shaped shape of the Sky Solo Plus guarantees excellent ergonomics, although the overall weight of the kit is around 40g, a very low weight that allows a very practical comfort and gesture, in fact even the dimensions go towards this direction we have 118 mm in height and 16mm in circumference, perfect to keep in your pocket without any kind of impediment. Surely the construction is excellent, there are no smudges and the threads have excellent tolerances. Good materials used convey excellent solidity and sturdiness, a plus since it is still a kit suitable even for beginners or “battle mod for the more experienced”.

FUNCTIONS & PERFORMANCES

Now let’s take a look at the features on this mod. We recall that it is a semi-mechanical, which therefore will supply the watts based on the installed resistance, with a cutoff of maximum 40w. So with the battery charged we will have the maximum available watts that will decrease with the battery discharge until we have to recharge. All this will be notified by the LEDs placed around the power button with green LED we will have more than 70 percent charge with the blue LED from 70 to 30 instead with the red less than 30 percent. Orca Solo mounts a proprietary chip that can provide all the necessary protections to ensure the end user a safe vape. It therefore allows you to turn the mod on and off with the usual 5 clicks, it has an over burn protection that cuts off the supply after 8 seconds that the fire button is pressed, low power protection, protection against short circuits and protection from resistance too low. A feature that manufacturers are keen to point out is that it is always ready, in the sense that the circuit allows for an instantaneous supply that allows the maximum performance provided by the resistance to be obtained immediately.

But how does this atomizer go? As mentioned, the resistance is directly mounted on the pin of the box to which the remaining glass tank will then be screwed with the plastic drip tip. The resistances we are supplied with are new and designed to get the most out of liquids containing nicotine salts, to optimize the hit, the famous blow in the throat, so sought after by the neo vapers.

Once the very simple refill operation is done by removing the metal cage and taking care not to move the glass held in place by an orign, we insert the bottle and prepare ourselves for the first clouds of steam.

EASE OF USE

Extreme ease and compactness. These adjectives would be enough to describe the Orca Solo. Vaporesso has certainly been committed to creating an easy product for everyone. The ease of approaching the mod without having to go crazy between abstruse combinations of keys is the strong point of this tube that does not regret the settings of the watts or the tiny screens. Everything is at hand and in a very short time you will be ready for the first vape!

FLAVOR

We arrive at the moment awaited by everyone, in addition to an easy approach and a beautiful design, this Orca Solo returns good performances at an aromatic level. However, since it is an entry level kit it is well positioned in this segment. Let’s start by talking about the resistance inside, which is declared to be 1.3 ohm and the aromatic restitution is really pleasant from the first pitches, a medium faithful aroma and a lot of steam that is quite warm and does not propose any kind of metallic or dirty “after taste” “. The resistance behaves in an excellent way and succeeds in catching even the most dense liquids, producing a good quantity of steam even with the progress of the battery discharge, the chip works well and there are no great differences between the full battery and the almost download.

The shot is smooth and very linear and the air regulation works really well we can go from an open cheek shot to a very closed MTL shot simply going to choke the air ring at the base. The difference is noticeable but it does not have repercussions on an aromatic level, remaining in any really pleasant configuration. Speaking of the blow in the throat we can only note that the resistances work well but still remains proportionate and in line with the competitors, in fact it is perceivable but not extremely marked even with medium high nicotine doses. Resistance is also well studied in terms of consumption, in fact we could make about 1 tank and a half before the battery is completely discharged.

The average duration of a coil is around 20-30 ml before having a drastic drop in yield, obviously with synthetic tobaccos we will hardly be able to achieve this result, which however is appreciable and average.

A small note the heat of resistance is not perceived on the glass tank but at the base where the resistance pin is placed but does not propagate throughout the tube remaining concentrated in that area.

TO CONCLUDE

Vaporesso has created a real starter kit suitable for those looking for simplicity and immediacy of use suitable to satisfy both those who now face this world and those looking for something practical without having to pull out the most valuable mods. The cheek shot we are able to obtain is very satisfactory and is well suited to all types of vapers. Another great job by Vaporesso.
