I had the original boreas, and I liked it. It was a big honking tanks with a lot of juice capacity. The only thing I didn't really like about it was the fact that the original was pretty much just another clone of the aromamizer, like the modfather RTA, and several others. This continues that trend, so if you already have an aromamizer, you're not missing out too much, and can live without this tank, unless you want it for the size of it. It's much smaller now, and I DO. Like that about it.
The problem with this aromamizer clone, like the modfather RTA, they either did not or could not duplicate the aromamizers juice flow control, which is the best in the game. When you fill this, if you did not build big enough coils that will allow for plenty of wick to fill the deck, it's going to leak. Plain and simple. This type of rdta with a floating deck NEEDS juice flow control otherwise you are forced to build large inner diameter coils so that you have enough wick to keep it from leaking.
Overall, it's a nice looking tank, I like the size of it, but the lack of juice flow control with a floating deck really shows it's poor design. Augvape, you could have done a better job cloning the aromamizer, because you failed with the first boreas too, same with the modfather RTA guy. Don't let that stop you from buying this, it's a good tank, you just need to build big coils and wick it right to prevent flooding when filling. If this had juice flow control that worked and was user friendly like the aromamizer, I'd definitely give this 5 stars..
