Five-Star Rating System
I love the looks of the Trilogy, especially with the big bubble glass. It’s beefy and clean looking. Awesome job on the looks, Vaperz Cloud. I’m giving it four and a half stars. That’s how much I like the looks on this thing.
BUILDING AND WICKING
As far as building and wicking goes, the Trilogy is pretty easy to build. It’s a postless deck, not that hard once you know the length to cut your coils. The wicking is a little bit on the finicky side, but if you spread those wicks out, you shouldn’t have any weeping. In the wicking category, it’s going to lose a bit of points because of that. We’re going to call building and wicking three and three quarters, 3.75 stars.
As far as performance goes, you saw the performance on this thing, these things are fogging out machines. It is a cloud chucker, the flavor is there, the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy one of my favorite RTAs of the year. In the performance category, this trilogy is scoring a very high four and a half stars.
As far as value goes, the Trilogy’s pretty tight, man. I’ve only seen it as low as $65 and as high as $70. I really don’t think that’s a bad price point as far as being able to get what I consider one of the best RTAs of the year so far. I think it’s a pretty fair value as far as that goes. Yeah, it’s a little bit on the pricey side, when you compare it to others. But when you compare the vape quality, the clouds, and the flavor that you get off of this thing, the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy is worth the money. We’re gonna put it at a point above average, three and a half stars.
We’re gonna add all these stars up. We’re gonna come up with a whopping 16 and a quarter stars. We’re going to take these 16 and a quarter stars and we’re going to divide them by four. We’re going to come up with an average star count of 4.06 for the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy RTA.
A review score of above four stars makes the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy RTA automatically DeucesJack approved. I love this RTA. I haven’t been able to put it down since I got it. Like I said at the beginning of this review, I bought this one with my own money because I was getting all kinds of requests to review it. I’m very happy that I did. I love this thing. I’m probably going to buy it in some other color sometime in the near future. It’s a banging, flavorful RTA.
- Look at it. Just look at it, the Trilogy is drop-dead gorgeous. Vaperz Cloud did a bang-up job on the aesthetics on the Trilogy. I love the look of this thing.
- Next, the build quality on this is phenomenal. Great job, Vaperz Cloud.
- The Trilogy’s got really nice capacity, especially depending on which glass you run.
- Very smooth airflow. It’s basically as smooth as it gets. I mean, you can just hear the smoothness on it, it’s beautiful.
- I’ve been getting banging flavor and clouds on the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy. Let me show you what I’m working with: You saw the build I dropped in there, 120 watts on the VX217 (review coming soon). Check it out… Just an unbelievable amount of cloudage. I mean, any questions? The vape is dense, saturated, and flavorful. Very nice job on this, Vaperz Cloud.
- I showed you the one with the accessory kit. If you buy the accessory kit, you get all the glasses I featured in this review. I highly recommend that if you’re going to buy this Vaperz Cloud Trilogy RTA, buy it with the accessory kit, it’s well worth the money. If you do that, you get three glass sections. It’s definitely a pro if you buy it that way.
When you get the three glass sections, you get the straight glass, you get the small bubble and the large bubble that requires the extension piece. I’m running it now with the large bubble, that’s the only way I really run it. I love running it that way
- The other really nice thing about this is if you’re into the high wattages. You can run the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy at high wattages and still get a relatively cool vape. I have the same coil in there that I showed you at 120 watts, here it is at 160 watts… 160 watts and I got to tell you, it was relatively cool.
- And the last pro’s going to be that top cap. I’m really digging that half a turn top cap, man. Nice job on that again, Vaperz Cloud. It’s a pro.
- I’ve heard other people complain about this, the Trilogy is a bit finicky to wick, it really is. I think it’s because of those corners on the wicking port. You got to spread that cotton out a little bit in order for it not to weep. Some people complain that no matter how they wick this thing, it weeps through the airflow holes on them. I found that if I spread the cotton out, it definitely helps. So it’s a definite con, but not something that can’t be fixed with a proper wicking job. Still, I have to point that out.
- Next is the deck screws. Man, I wish they were hex screws, this thing is begging for hex screws. I hate flat head screws, especially on a postless build deck like this. It’s a con.
- Some people are not going to like that really wide bore drip tip. No chicken lips allowed on this Trilogy RTA. You better have big full lips if you want to wrap them around this RTA drip tip. I don’t mind it, but other people will. For them, it’s a con.
- It’s a big RTA. It will require a big mod. I’m running this on my Odin most of the time. Now I got this new Augvape VX217, it’s been living on there and I love this combo. But I have to point out that you need a big mod to run the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy without any overhang. That might scare a few people away.
What’s up insiders! DeucesJack at Vaping Insider. Today we’re going to review a big boy RTA. I know, I’m late on this one. I’ve been getting calls to review this for months now, so I went out and bought this with my own money.
We’re talking about the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy.
From Top to Bottom
We’re gonna open this box up.
The first thing you’ll see is the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy RTA instruction manual. You also get a bag of spares, some spare o-rings, spare deck screws, and the low profile drip tip. Kind of sexy, but just not comfortable. I’m not a fan of these, I use the bigger one,
Let’s move on to the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy RTA itself. Look at this sexy beast! This thing is just gorgeous, feels like quality when you put it in your hand. It’s just a phenomenal piece of metal.
Right here, you can see the big boy drip tip installed. It’s an 810 style drip tip, all your other 810s should fit fine in there, no issues. Nice machining on this. Bottom airflow fully adjustable, honeycomb airflow, stoppers on both ends; whenever you adjust one side, it also happens on the other.
On the bottom of the RTA, you got some Vaperz Cloud Trilogy branding; gold-plated 510 insulator ring, stainless steel threading around that. You have some serialization over here.
On the top, you can see a nice, wide platform so almost any 810 drip tip will look great on it. Fantastic job on that Vaperz Cloud. Comes right off on a half-twist; lock it down, half a twist. Really nice job on the top cap. Very, very well machined, I like that a lot.
Recessed area over here, nice, big fill port holes there. Nice wide bore chimney, that will get you some good clouds. Any bottle will be accommodated here, you can even use bullnose bottles, no issues.
Now you guys know I’m not about that straight glass, I’m just not. So before we take this thing apart, let me show you the accessories that I bought with it. So when I bought the Trilogy, I also got the accessory box which comes with the two bubble glasses and the extension piece.
Pop this box open, there’s your bubble extension glass. It’s not wrapped in cellophane like this one, because I’ve been using it. Nice, big bubble glass, I’m definitely digging that. I showed you the big bubble glass, now I want to show you the small bubble glass that’s included in the accessory kit as well. I believe the short bubble glass holds 5mls, while the big one that uses the chimney extension holds 9mls.
So you got three different choices when it comes to glasses: The straight that will hold 2mls, the short bubble glass (that doesn’t require the extension piece) that will hold 5mls, and the middle one (the big extension glass that takes the chimney extender). This one in the middle holds 9ml. So, I just wanted to clear that up these two (the shorty bubble glass & the big extension glass) come in the accessory kit. The straight glass came in my regular Trilogy box.
Here is the chimney extender that will allow you to run your bubble glass. We’ll be installing that right now. To take this thing apart and install the bubble glass, take your top fill port cap off. Then pop out your straight glass, pop in your bubble glass, take your chimney extender and just screw it in. By the way, the threading and machining is absolutely gorgeous on this thing, very nice and smooth. Now, once you pop that chimney extender in, you’re ready to pop in your top fill port cap, just like so. Make sure you pop it in nice and tight. There it is, bubble glass installed.
Before we open this thing up, let me call your attention to the branding over there. See those wicking slots right there? Huge. They’re massive. On the inside, you can see that there definitely is some doming. You get a better look at the wicking slots as well. Really, really nice job Vaperz Cloud, well thought out, as far as the design goes.
Now let’s take a look at the deck. Look at this massive airflow, here’s where you’re going to get all your bottom airflow from. Absolutely gorgeous. You can see the wicking channels right here. Big holes here to feed the juice to your coil, nice job on that on both sides.
Now, one thing I’m going to caution about this. See how the ends of these narrow out a little bit?
When you’re wicking this, you want to make sure you spread the cotton out to the ends. Because otherwise, you might get some slight leaking. You have to fan the cotton out across the wicking port. I’ll show you when I wick it. Love the huge post holes. They are a little narrow, I’m not gonna lie, they’re a little narrow as far as the coil width goes. I wish they were spread apart a little more. I wish they would have banged it out to here a little bit, you know what I’m saying, maybe cut off this wicking port a little. But it’s not terrible, you can still get some monster coils in there. I do like the size of the post holes, you can see you have flat head screws. Not a fan, I would have definitely preferred hex screws.
Building & Wicking
Let’s open up those post holes and drop a build in here. Open them all up, slap this on our trusty Coil Master 521 Plus Tab. I’ll be using these big three and a half millimeter stainless steel coils. I’m going to cut these down to around five and a half millimeters on the coil measuring tool. You want to find that five and a half slot right there, and turn it over. Get your flush cutters in there and give it a snip. Do the same thing on the other side, snip that off, make sure it’s nice and even. Then repeat the process with the other coil. Once you’re done with that you can take your coils and drop it right in the Coil Master.
Once you drop it in there, you’ll want to hold your finger on the coil, get your flathead screwdriver in there and tighten down that leg. Repeat the process on the other side, just like so. Now, you want to take your other coil and drop it in on the other side. Repeat the process, keep your finger on the coil, make sure your Coil Master is off, and just tighten it down. Repeat the process on the other side until it’s nice and tight. And there you go.
When you first get the coils in there, it’s going to look a little janky. We’re going to manipulate these coils, push them down a little bit to get them straight. Now, make sure this is a tight build, so you have to make sure the coils are not touching, you don’t want the coils to touch. So you want them to look something like that. Maybe this one can come up a little bit… so now they look more aligned like that.
That’s how you want them to look. You can see there’s space in between the coils
Now, as you can see, we’re ohm-ing out at about .15. We’re going to give the coils a dry burn, see where we fall. Just heat them up nice and make sure there are no hot spots, we don’t want any hot spots. As you can see, they might need a little help, so let’s give them a little scrape to make sure they’re heating evenly from the inside out. This one seems to be having a little problem. See if we can get it up there… All right, let’s try it again. Yup, looks like they’re both heating evenly from the inside out now, that’s exactly where we want them.
Now we’re going to take our cotton—Cloud 9 cotton, the best cotton I ever used—and remember, we’re using a three and a half millimeter coil. So I‘m going to tear off a thicker piece than normal. Make it nice and pointy on one end. Shut your Coil Master off for safety and just take your cotton and feed it right through.
See how nice and tight that is, that’s how you want it. Now cut your cotton right around where the stainless steel ends. You don’t want to go crazy stuffing this thing with cotton. Do the same thing on the other side. Again, just give it a snip right after the holes, and that should be good to go. Now we’re taking our leftover piece and doing the same thing on the other side. We’re feeding the cotton through, and now we can use the first cotton we put in as a guide. Just give it a snip, and it’s done.
Once that is done, take your vape shears and—gently, gently, ever so gently—pop that cotton in there. Try to get the bottom edges in first and just place it in there nice and easy. Make sure you spread the cotton’s bottom edges to the sides, but you see how nice and loose that is?
That’s how you want it. Same thing on the other side; take that cotton, loosely place it in there easy, easy peasy, don’t go crazy, all right? Then take the other side, and loosely place it in there as well.
Be gentle, no reason to tightly stuff it in there. Spread the cotton out so it hits those corners. See how nice and loose that is, that’s exactly how you want it.
The juice we’re using today is a collaboration between myself and Johnny’s Juice. This is called F***ing Mook Juice. It’s a vanilla bourbon custard with a graham cracker kicker. It is absolute fire.
So we’re taking our Mook Juice and going to paint those coils.
Get that cotton wet, all saturated. Don’t worry if you’re a little sloppy, I’m always sloppy, just get it nice and wet, and make sure to get juice all over those coils. Now we’ll give it a test fire, make sure we got vape… oh yeah, we got vape and it smells delicious. Put a little bit more juice on there, and now it’s time to put this thing back together.
We’re taking our newly-installed bubble glass section, taking the base, and doing a little reverse thread to make sure it catches, pop that right on there just like so. Now, before we put the top cap on, we’re taking our Mook Juice bottle and giving it a nice squeeze. Get that vanilla bourbon custard goodness in the Trilogy. Give it a nice fill all the way to the top, and now we’re going to take our top cap, half a twist it on. Then take our drip tip, pop that in. Now we’re going to pop the Vaperz Cloud Trilogy RTA on a mod and see how it vapes.
