Freemax Scylla Mini
Incredibly, it produces flavor equal to its bigger sibling. Air flow too. And cloud generation is far more than expected. A distinct pleasure to vape.
That's why this test and review is late: we just can't get enough of it.
It's top fill too. It does not use a threaded top, the top is the same style as the big sibling, a locking "rail" system that takes about one-quarter turn and slight lift up to completely remove. A very effective system that is leak-proof in the Scylla Mini (as well as the bigger size Scylla). Kudos to Freemax, no need to take tissues with you to wipe down after a refill.
The Freemax Scylla Mini is available in two colors, as shown at the left. A black version (which we received for this review) and a brushed stainless steel version. Both have nice embossing at the top, the black one has a gold tone imprint of the product name.
The tank section is glass and all seals are silicone.
The standard coil shipped with the unit is a Kanthal A1 wire at 1.5 ohms (20 to 70W). There are quite a few choices available for coils: 0.5 ohm Clapton (20 to 50W), 0.15 ohm Ni200, 0.25 DVC stainless steel (20 to 60W) and 0.5 DVC stainless steel (20 to 60W).
Mini size, maxiumum vaping. Air flow that supports mouth hits, lung hits, or anything in between.
The tank has a capacity of 2 ML. We are all quite heavy users here, but the 2 ML was adequate. It's an easy fill system with the same type of top as the bigger sibling, the Scylla. It's a quick quarter-turn twist of a "rail" system, and lift off to expose two generous sized refill slots. It's just as easy to get back on too.
The coils are available in well-priced five packs.
At the right, we are showing the Kanthal DVC coils. Coils for the Scylla Mini are compatible with the Starre, Starre Pro, and Scylla tanks.
We have tested all the Freemax products since their initial startup of operations. Coils from Freemax last a good long time. Typically, we get more than 3 weeks from a single coil, occasionally cleaning it out to extend the life (cleaning just with hot water and the tip of a tissue).
We trust product from Freemax. They are well designed, they work as expected, with no muss and no fuss. No leaks and a company that stands behind their products with responsive support.
So, what’s the verdict? Is it worth it?
Freemax make moderately priced tanks that are every bit the equal of more expensive tanks. They are well designed, well constructed with attention to detail. The Freemax Scylla Mini is no exception, it works well. This is a tank worth having, particularly if you are using batteries in the 19 mm range or smaller rectangular mods like the iStick PICO. This brings the best of all vaping styles to the forefront. Regular coils or sub-ohm, you get to pick. Get one today.
