I have three words to start off my Vandy Vape Kylin 2 RTA review. Those three words are flavor, flavor, and flavor. I am not kidding! The flavor is incredible and I totally suck at building coils. I have the coil building kits and everything but just not the touch. But the single and dual coil deck of the Kylin II is one of the easiest to build on. I guess you can tell that I really like this RTA. And since I went on about the flavor, I will start there.
Normally I start with the Vandy Vape Kylin V2 review specs and everything, and we will have those, but flavor first. Just because I want to back up what I am saying. There is a reason why the flavor is so good. A very simple yet innovative reason.
Kylin 2 RTA Flavor
The Kylin 2 RTA flavor is spectacular and there is a specific reason why. That reason is the design of the airflow. The airflow is a dual independent airflow system. Each side of the airflow port is separate from the other side. Moreover, the airflow pathway is beveled and directed toward the heart of the coil. By beveled I just mean curved and directed. That is like a directed corridor of airflow. What does that do? That's next.
Normally, the airflow simply floods into the base of the RTA or vape tank. While the airflow floods in and fills the base, it is then drawn up through the coil toward the drip tip. In the case of the Kylin 2, all of the airflow is directed to the coil. There is no air spillage into other parts of the base of the RTA. As a result, all of the airflow that collects and carries the vapor comes through the coil. It's brilliant.
Because all of the airflow comes through the coil, all of that flow is picking up vapor. That is why the flavor really pops. Amazing flavor to be honest. On top of the, the precise path of the airflow is ultra smooth. Plus there is no whistling and the end result is smooth quiet airflow delivering rich flavor.
Vandy Vape Kylin 2 RTA Review
Now we get into the regular type stuff for the Vandy Vape Kylin 2 RTA review. The Kylin II is made of stainless steel. The top fill slide design is excellent. In fact, it is one of the best top fills I have tested. The top cap slides easily and the juice port is nice and big. I like a big fill port because I hate spilling vape juice. Especially Freeman Vape juice because it is awesome and I don't want to waste a drop!
The dual independent airflow is easy to adjust, which is a plus and an expectation. As I mentioned above the airflow is designed like an air corridor that is directed right through the heart of the coil deck.
Speaking of the coil deck, it is fantastic. The deck is nice and big. Inserting the coils and tightening them down is a snap. In addition, Vandy Vape includes a coil trimming tool. The coil tool allows the precise length for your particular coil. For example, if using a single coil place the coil in the tool and trim the excess sticking out on the other side. You will instantly have the right coil length. Once installed, you can position and wick the coil.
Kylin 2 Highlights:
- One of the best top fill designs
- Fantastic, smooth and quiet airflow
- Brilliant flavor
- Large build deck
- Wicking channel keeps coils saturated
- Excellent stainless steel construction
Vandy Vape Kylin II RTA Specs
This part of the Kylin 2 review will be about the specifications but I want to take a quick step back. It just hit me that new vapers might be reading this and not know what an RTA is. An RTA is a Rebuildable Tank Atomizer. In essence, all that means it is a vape tank but you build your own coils. There are no pre-built coils, you have to make your own! The coils are sub ohm so that requires VG types of vape juice like Freeman. Many vapers love to build their own coils and many of you are amazing coil builders. I am jealous of your skill. Anyway, here's the Kylin II Rta specs:
- Stainless steel construction
- 24 mm diameter base
- 38 mm tall
- Dual independent airflow
- Dual or single coil build deck
- Sliding top fill
- 3 ml vape juice capacity with straight glass tank
- 5 ml vape juice capacity with bubble glass tank
- The diameter of the bubble glass tank is 26 mm
- 810 drip tip
- Comes with a 510 drip tip adapter
Kylin 2 Build Quality
The Kylin 2 is made of stainless steel and the build quality is excellent. Everything connects smoothly. The bell top cap seamlessly connects to the coil base. The other indicators of the built quality are the airflow control section and the top fill slide. The base of the Kylin 2 is one piece. Don't try and take apart the base! The reason it is one piece is the design of the airflow system.
The top fill slide is one of the best I have ever tested. In testing for the Vandy Vape Kylin II review I opened and closed the top fill slide at least 100 times. No signs of wear were detected.
Huge shout out to Vandy Vape for the airflow design. Thinking back to the Vandy Vape Revolver review, this company is trying very innovative airflow designs. And they are working.
Vaping The Kylin 2
My favorite part of the Kylin 2 review was the vaping! Now, I use the best vape juice, which is of course Freeman Vape Juice. So I always love the vaping! But the Kylin 2 flavor is amazing. It is the airflow that is key. The flavor is excellent with either a single or dual coil build. Although I do have to say that the flavor is a tad better with dual coils on the deck. But either way, the vaping is a treat.
