First Impression Out Of The Box:

Oh yeah, another Tony B project from Vandy Vape. I absolutely love the Pulse 22. Hopefully, the Pulse 24 lives up to the legend. On the exterior, it looks exactly the same as its little brother. On the inside, there are a few differences and we will go over them after we dive down and take a close-up look at the Pulse 24.

What’s In The Box:

  • One Vandy Vape Pulse 24 BF RDA
  • One ULTEM 810 Drip Tip
  • One Delrin 810 Drip Tip
  • One T-Tool
  • One 510 Drip Tip Adapter
  • One Build Rod
  • Spare Part Pack
  • User Manual

From Top To Bottom:

Typical Vandy Vape, when you buy one of their atomizers, you get multiple drip tips and the Pulse 24 is no different. You will receive an 11 mm Ultem drip tip as well as an 11mm Delrin drip tip. While both drip tips do have the same inner diameter, the Ultem drip tip is definitely a little wider on the exterior. I have vaped with both of them and I do prefer the Ultem drip tip. I like the looks and the way it feels better than the Delrin drip tip. Both drip tips are proper Goon style drip tips and all of your other Goon drip tips will fit the Pulse 24. So far, all of my aftermarket Goon drip tips have fit just fine. Vandy Vape also included a 510 drip tip adapter so you are more than welcome to run your traditional 510 drip tips on the Pulse 24.

Remove the drip tip and you are greeted with a flat top cap that does have some slight beveling on the edges to round things off. The interior of the opening for the drip tip does have a nice beefy oring inside. The inside of the top cap does have a conical shape to it which is always conducive to great flavor. On the sides of the top cap, there are two airflow holes that lineup with corresponding holes on the barrel. They are adjustable and the tension between the oring on the barrel and the top cap is excellent. It’s not too loose and it’s not too tight, it’s just right.

The barrel on the Pulse 24 looks exactly the same as the Pulse 22 just in a bigger form. It does have that squared off look when you look at it from the top. There is an oring on the top of the barrel that as I mentioned before does a nice job in keeping tension with the top cap. The airflow tubes are similar to the ones found on the Pulse 22 but on the Pulse 24, they are significantly shorter. They are angled downward towards your coil just like a Pulse 22. Each tube measures 3 mm in diameter. Just like the Pulse 22, the airflow on this atomizer is just phenomenally smooth. The barrel slides onto the base and is held in place by two rings that are on the base. The barrel, just like it’s little brother, seems to be machined very well. There is some branding present on both sides of the barrel. On one side, you will find the word Pulse and on the other side, there is a Vandy Vape logo.

The Deck:

The deck on the Pulse 24 is 24-karat gold plated. The whole atomizer is made out of 304 stainless steel. The juice well on the deck is 7 mm deep and the deck screws are also gold plated. This is a postless deck that features a juice flow splitter in the center. This basically guarantees even juice dispersal while you are squonking. The Pulse 24 does come pre setup for squonking. However, Vandy Vape also included a traditional 510 pin for those of you that don’t squonk. This postless deck is set up for dual coils. You can run one gigantic coil if you choose to do so but to be honest, it’s kind of tough to do since a lot of the squonking mods today are single battery mechanical mods. Running a big coil in a mod like that and you just won’t have the power to get a decent vape or if you do, you will just rip through batteries. In all honesty, because this is a dual coil squonking atomizer, you do have to take care with what build you put in this RDA. Not because the RDA can’t handle the build but because most of the squonking mods on the market today are single 18650 mechanical mods. The market just hasn’t caught up with the squonking community yet. Hopefully, towards the end of this year, we will see more dual 18650 regulated squonking mods.

Building And Wicking:

I know I always say this in all of my postless reviews but it still holds true. The hardest part about building on a postless deck is getting the lead length on your coils right. Vandy Vape and Tony B have kind of solved that problem. What I do, as I did with the Pulse 22, is I use the Ultem drip tip as my guide. I put the coil up against the drip tip and I cut right where the bottom of the drip tip begins. So far this has worked pretty well and it’s giving me a real good length as far as my leads go when I mount them on this deck.

I will say this about building on the Pulse 24, when you run big coils, they do tend to take up a lot of the usable space. The coils, even if you push them pretty close together wind up being really close to the airflow tubes. That’s not a bad thing, you will get full on flavor if you build this RDA that way. The only thing you have to watch out for is that the metal tubes don’t accidentally hit your coil because it will cause a short.

Once you have your coils mounte, simply look for hotspots and you’re ready to wick it up. Wicking on the Pulse 24 is very easy and straightforward just like it is on any other RDA. Cut your cotton so you have enough length that the ends of your wicks hit the bottom of your juice well and you are ready to juice up and vape. So far, the splitter on the bottom of the deck has worked well and I noticed that it does evenly cover my wicks with juice when I squonk.

The only real con I had with this deck are the Phillips head screws. They’re not bad but when you put this deck on a 521 tab, it is kind of awkward to access them. You kind of have to keep spinning the 521 tab around and you have to get the screwdriver exactly straight into the screws. Sometimes, it creates somewhat of an awkward angle and to be honest, the quality of the screws is probably not the greatest. I just don’t understand why Vandy Vape didn’t go with straight out grub screws on this deck. They did include them as spares but I think they should have stayed away from the Phillips head deck screws altogether. At the very least, I would have liked to have seen them use higher quality Phillips head screw.

How Does It Vape?

I knew after I owned this RDA for a week that this would not be a long review. The good ones never are. Most people don’t believe me when I tell them it’s much harder to write a negative review than it is to write a positive review. The Vandy Vape Pulse 24 vapes great. It definitely lives up to the legend of the Pulse 22. I get full on flavor no matter which way I run the airflow on this RDA. Wide open you will get a very flavorful vape. Close one air hole down on each side and you will have the flavor intensify dramatically. I love this RDA. It is one of my favorite squonk RDAs, hands down. Right now, I have it on my Council Of Vapor Wraith. I have dual stainless steel Clapton’s in their ohming out at .25 and I am running it at 75 watts in power mode. I get one of the thickest, lush, most flavorful clouds that I have ever had. It is a fantastic vaping experience.

Conclusion:

Yeah, there’s really not much more to say about the Vandy Vape Pulse 24. It is just a stellar squonking RDA that will give you a phenomenal vaping experience. It is definitely my favorite squonking RDA and I do highly recommend it. The funny thing about the Pulse 24 is it really doesn’t matter if you’re a flavor chaser or a cloud chaser because it’s one of those rare RDA’s that will satisfy both of those needs. The Pulse 24 will give you some awesome flavor if you shut the air flow down. Open it wide and get ready for some massive clouds. Like I alluded to earlier in my review, the worst part about the Pulse 24 is that it’s ahead of its time. It’s very hard to find a squonker that can handle the builds that the Pulse 24 is capable of using. That’s not Tony B’s or Vandy Vape’s fault, it’s just the way the market is right now. Hopefully, in the future, we get some more dual 18650 squonkers that are regulated and are able to help the Pulse 24 reach its full potential. For now, unfortunately, it’s limited to the mods that are actually available on the market for squonking. All that being said, it’s still the best squonking RDA on the market for a dual coil setup. It is definitely a fantastic follow up to a great RDA like the Pulse 22. It is definitely worthy of a DeucesJack approval.

Pros:
  • Flavor
  • Build quality
  • Clouds
  • Made for squonking
  • 2 drip tips
  • Postless deck
  • Deep juice well
  • Can also be used as a traditional RDA
  • Subtle branding
  • Spare hex grub screws
  • 510 drip tip adapter

Cons:
  • Phillips head deck screws are not the best
  • Ahead of its time in the squonking market (Not vandy Vape’s fault)

Update:

Since the reviews of both the Pulse BF Mod and Pulse 24 atomizer, Vandy Vape has developed a Pulse BF Mod Kit. What Vandy Vape has done is included the Pulse 24 atomizer in one box with the Pulse BF Mod. In the kit the side panels of the mod will match the drip tip of the Pulse 24. Since we liked the mod and the atomizer so much, we think this is an excellent kit. We also think it’s a great value to combine both products in one box. We wanted to update both reviews with this information and provide you with a link for your convenience.

    Well i think i might suggest the Kanger drip box 160 for it because of the dual batteries (plus who vapes over 120 on a regular bases anyways right? Lol). The only con to that is that it doesn’t look esthetically pleasing but it’ll definitely deliver. Or you can go for the drone from lost vape if your willing to fork out a finger or 2 =( but i have been runnin it on my dripbox 160 and im more than pleased with it. I hope it helps. Happy vaping!

    Does it fit well on the dripbox? Is there any overhang?

    • Reply Alex Rohner February 16, 2018 at 2:46 am

      yes, it has more overhang than expected bc the mod itself is triangular. I lol’ed out loud. That is why its not aesthetically pleasing. And the mod itself, even as a dual, feels and looks like it holds 3 batts since the bottle has to go somewhere. I guess it would work as a side table mod bc it comes in a package that doubles as display but with a 24 mm on top…its just ugly all around and heavy and big. I wouldn’t post it in my vape groups morning hand shot. The dripbox 160 sits best alone. Esp if u find a sale. lots of extras and a sturdy base for display/storage.

    Bought both the mod and RDA I was sceptical about the side airflow, and I have to say I was right. Been using the rashomon skwonkable RDA with my Dropbox 160 for about 8 months. And there is simply no comparison. I have tried a number of builds pulse 24, spaced and unspaced
    SS Claptons and SS Flapton. I have settled for a single parallel build using both at around 0.25. But the barrel get uncomfortably hot after a few vapes (regardless of the build) and the flavour and cloud production are acceptable, but not in the same league as many bottom airflow RDA’s. I wouldnt recommend it tbh. Can’t really see what all the fuss is about tbh
