If you’re looking for a different look to put on top of one of your many mods, then the Freemax Fireluke may be a good choice for you. When I first saw this bubble gum machine look I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. I do have to say that over a very short amount of time, the look of the tank has really grown on me. I actually love the uniqueness of it and I love the resin, marbleized look as well. So not only does this look phenomenal but the performance it gives is on par with its looks. It performs great when using the factory coils or its RBA section.
I have to say that this tank has really surprised me in a lot of ways. Freemax sent me two of them and I actually use both of them everyday in my daily rotation. It really is that good of a tank. So if you are in the market for something different that has stellar performance go out and get yourself a Freemax Fireluke. Deucesjack approved for sure. Go get yourself one if this is the type of look you like.
How Does It Vape??
My favorite coil on this tank is the .15 dual vertical coil. For me, that is the best factory coil that they provide with this setup. I get a really lush, flavorful vape from this coil and the clouds are fantastic as well. I did get a very flavorful, satisfying vape from the other coil that freemax provide but I do favor the .15 dual vertical coil. The sextuple coil is my second favorite but it was a little too much on the cloudy side for me. The .15 ohm dual vertical coil was the best compromise for me out of the 2 coils.
When it comes to the RBA section I did use the coils that Freemax provide. They are fantastic and I love the vape I get from the RBA section. Right now, I have dual stainless steel aliens in the RBA base. I am ohming out at .14 at 80 watts in power mode on my DNA mod. I get a really great flavorful, cloudy vape. The wicking has no problem keeping up with this build even at 120 watts. I do like the RBA section better than the factory coils only because it allows me to really customize and dial in my vape. Overall, performance and vape quality with the coils or RBA section has just been phenomenal.
First Impression Out of the Box
Whoa! What have we here? This tank reminds me of an old fashioned bubble gum machine. I really like the resin look. Freemax has not done a tank in a while so I’m excited about this one. This thing just looks funky. I can’t wait to give it a try.
What’s in the Box
- 1 Fireluke vapor tank(pre-installed 0.15ohm sextuple coil)
- 1 RTA section
- 1 extra set of O-rings
- Spare post screws
- 1 extra glass tube
- 1 user manual
- Blue flathead screwdriver
- Set of clapton coils
- Bag of cotton.
This tank comes with a really complete setup. Freemax basically gives you everything you need to start building or vaping with their factory coil or RBA section. Really nicely done and well packaged.
From Top to Bottom
The drip tip totally matches the rest of the tank. It is made out of the same material as the top cap and base. All three have that resin marbleized look. The drip tip itself is wide bore but it is a female drip tip. I really do hate when companies do this. When are they going to learn that vapers don’t like proprietary drip tips? I say this in almost every one of my reviews that include a proprietary drip tip. This is getting ridiculous. China stop! Nobody wants a proprietary drip tip. We want 810 or 510 drip tips. Preferably 810 with a 510 adapter. That’s what we want. It really is that simple. I don’t know why they still insist on coming up with their own types of drip tips? At the end of the day though, the stock drip tip is quite comfortable. I just wish Freemax went a different way with it. Also if you do insist on doing a proprietary, make sure the consumer gets more than one drip tip in the box.
Of course, because of the female drip tip, the top cap is not flat. It has a protruding metal piece with an o’ring around it. The rest of the top cap is flat. The protruding metal piece will fit a 510 drip tip but it looks stupid because you have an o’ring sticking out at the bottom of your drip tip. So technically you can use 510 drip tips but it just looks terrible on this tank. The rest of the top cap is really well done though. It has that resin marbleized look, the threading is smooth and the interior of it is made of stainless steel.
The chimney cap is also well done with two very large kidney bean shaped fill ports. The threading on it is very smooth and the fill ports will accommodate every type of juice bottle. The one problem I did have with the chimney top cap is you really have to make sure you screw it on tight to the coil. It has a huge oring on the base of it that goes on the inside of the glass. Sometimes that oring will give you the impression that the chimney cap is secured when in fact it is not. You have to make sure you twist it really good until it stops twisting to ensure that the chimney cap is mounted properly. If your glass moves at all while the tank is fully assembled, then the chimney cap was not installed correctly. If you don’t tighten it down hard enough when you go to change the coil out and unscrew the base, the whole tank will come apart. I can’t stress enough how important it is to make sure that you tighten down the chimney cap. The chimney has a nice conical design to it. It looks like it’s an almost conical than stepped up design that really enhances the flavor. It is a wide bore chimney so this tank does have a ton of air flow and wide open you will get a very airy vape.
Normally in my reviews, I just skip over the glass section because glass is glass. However, on the Fireluke things are a little different. What we have is a really bubble shape typed glass. Like I said early in the review, it reminds me of an old fashioned bubble gum machine. Some people have actually likened it to a fish bowl. One thing is for sure. This look will not be for everyone. Either way, I think it looks fantastic. It is new, innovative and different. I like the curves of it and I love the way it looks on certain mods. That being said, it only looks good on certain mods. It will not look good on all mods. There are two beefy o’rings on either side of the glass to ensure that the tank will not leak. I did receive two tanks. The Fireluke comes stock in 5 ml mode with the 5 ml glass installed. On one of them, the spare 4ml tank looked is made of Ultem and the other one was glass. The 4ml glass does have a bubble shape but it does not stick out as far as the 5ml glass.
The base again has that same marbleized look as the rest of the tank. The base has some huge airflow slots. The action on the AFC is smooth with no clicking to it. There are stoppers on both ends of the AFC. It has a nice resistance to it and it is easy to adjust while on the mod. On the bottom of the base, there is a gold-plated, adjustable 510 pin. I don’t know why they made it adjustable but that does not mean you can use it on a Hybrid. That is a definite no-no. The threading around the 510 pin is very smooth and this tank does sit flush on every mod that I have tried it on so far. The stainless steel plate does stick out a bit from underneath the resin but it does not detract from the overall look of the tank. There is no branding on the bottom of the tank but they are numbered. The interior of the base is threaded for coil placement. This is a screw-in type of coil system. The coil screws into the base and the top of the coil screws into the chimney.
.15OHM Sextuple Coil
The first coil I tried was the .15 ohm Sextuple coil. Freemax has this coil rated from 60 to 140 Watts. So far, I have been enjoying it right around 90 to 100 Watts. It does do 140 Watts and it does keep up in the wicking department. I tested it out. However, so far I’ve gotten the best flavor in the 90 – 100 watt range. Flavor on this coil is really good and the clouds are just fantastic. This is definitely a nice coil that does a great job with flavor and clouds. Really impressive.
.15 OHM Dual Vertical Coil
Out of the two I tried, this is probably my favorite coil. Freemax has it rated from 60 to 120 watts. I’ve been running it anywhere from 75 to 85 Watts. I get an awesome compromise of flavor and clouds with this coil. I find it to be extremely flavorful and the clouds are great too. It’s not as cloudy as the sextuplet but, as most of you know, I put a premium on flavor over clouds. It’s a really great coil that I truly enjoy in this tank.
.25 OHM Dual Vertical Coil
This coil I did not receive from Freemax but it will be available. Since I haven’t tried it I can not intelligently comment on it but I did want my readers to know that there is another option available to them.
All of the coils I went over in this section are made of Kanthal. Unfortunately, Freemax, like a lot of other companies, have not marked this on all their coils. The .15 coil is marked but the Sextuplet one is not. Companies really need to start marking the material they use on all their coils. It is important information that all vapers just need to know. Both tanks I received only came with the Sextuplet coil head and the RBA section. The other coil was sent to me separately. I have been running both coil heads for well over a week now and they are performing great with no real loss of flavor. Hopefully, Freemax develops some more coils for this tank because I absolutely love it.
I give a lot of credit to Freemax for including an RBA section with this tank and not charging separately for it. That’s what all manufacturers should be doing. The RBA section has a screw on barrel that has a conical design to it and a really wide bore on top. The deck itself is a typical velocity style deck. It has two o’rings around the base. It is a two-post two terminal design with bottom airflow. It is machined well and really does a great job as an RTA base.
Building and Wicking
There are no surprises here, this is a velocity-style deck that most of us, if you have been vaping for any time at all, have built before. Simply mount your coils, tighten them down, clip your leads and dry burn them so they are glowing evenly. Wicking is very straightforward as well. There are four triangular shaped wicking ports. Put the cotton through your coil. Cut the Wicks so they reach just about the top of the bottom oring on the base and then tuck your wicks into the wicking channels. Right now, I am using a 3.5mm ID coil that seems to be the largest that you can use in this RTA base anything larger will be really tight and might rub against the wall of the barrel and create a short. You may be able to get 4 mm coils in there but it will be tight and probably take some maneuvering. The coils that Freemax include are actually really nice fused clapton coils that are 3 mm ID.
