Rincoe Manto 228W TC Starter Kit Review

Rincoe Manto 228W TC Starter Kit Review

Good afternoon, vaper. We’re back again with another review. Today, we’re gonna look at a very powerful starter kit that isn’t truly a starter kit. The amount of wattage output on this bad boy can instantaneously deliver an avalanche of vapor with the press of a button. Not only does it give you magnificent machinery, but it also provides a sub-ohm tank, a 0.15ohm coil, and a huge 2.0” display.

Review & Final Thoughts:

Time to break this thing open. Uh oh, I see no glass and no coils included as spares. I only see one of each. That’s not good. My biggest gripe with some of these companies is the lack of damn spares! Argh. Bad news, Rincoe, that’s a huge con. Maybe I’m being too harsh. Alright, I’ll tone it down. Here we have the sub-ohm tank and it’s very good-looking. To unscrew the top part, you must avoid unscrewing the coil at the same time. There is a lot of threading going on. You can control airflow with the dial mechanism that every other sub-ohm tank has. I am filling up the tank with No. 32 e-liquid by Beard Vape and going to let it prime for a bit.

 

Now, let’s take a look at the mod. Right off the bat, I notice a hundred fingerprints on the screen. You get two buttons on the front for adjusting settings and a fire button on the side. Don’t you hate it when you have to adjust the setting with the firing button? I’m glad this kit doesn’t do that. Please note that if you’d like to replace your tank with something larger than 25mm diameter, you will get overhang. On the bottom of the mod, there are four venting holes, and the entire mod looks fantastic. The display is amazingly colorful. It’s user-friendly and adjusting settings is a breeze.

 

The screen is slightly customizable. You can change font color and color accents. With 228W of power, you’ll be happy to have all those settings at your fingertips. Time to hit it, let’s do it. Okay, the flavor is insane. Big pro right here, I have to say. The firing is powerful as well, I have to lower the airflow, so I don’t choke on so much vapor.

 

Let’s dig into what other experts had to say. On the negative side, the most common complaint was the fingerprints on the screen problem. Both sides of the mod are made of glass, so you’ll have to deal with wiping off fingerprints every time you vape on it. Another consistent con was the lack of spares. The packaging lacks a spare coil and a spare glass. Nobody was happy about this, but we’ve all received a sample product for the sake of the review. Needless to say, it appears that the final product could actually contain spares. I have heard that isn’t the case. Big no-no, my friend, that is a huge con.

 

Looking at the good side of things, there are plenty of compliments thrown the Manto’s way. The flavor was the best thing in my opinion, and other experts seem to agree on the flavor quality as well. It delivers on all fronts in that regard. Other compliments include a firing button with massive balls! You hit it and within 0.001s, you’ll be greeted with an avalanche of flavor. Adjust your airflow accordingly. Also, the display was a huge plus for some. They loved the aesthetics of the screen, and the ability to customize font and accent colors.

 

Sleek, sturdy, and epic, this kit is delivering well on all fronts. While not the best starter kit in town, it definitely does flavor well. Overall, I believe this received a passing grade. For the price point, it’s worth the guacamole, in my opinion.
