The Praxis Survival Starter Kit review. Everything we liked and disliked
Today weâ€™re going to take a look at one pretty hardcore starter kit and itâ€™s something for people who are definitely into sub-ohming. Itâ€™s made by Praxis Vapors, the same company, who designed the Derringer RDA and itâ€™s called the Praxis Survival Starter Kit or the Vulta Survival Kit. Itâ€™s basically an eGo style vaping kit but with a lot of power and it features their state of the art sub ohm tank called the Spitfire.
One thing we forgot to mention about the Praxis Survival Starter Kit is that itâ€™s fully designed in the United States, and despite being an authentic product itâ€™s priced at around $65, so itâ€™s a pretty sweet deal. It comes packed in a very sleek all black presentation box with the company name and logo on the top and inside youâ€™ll find the fully assembled kit, two coil heads (rated at 0.2 Ohms and 0.5 Ohms) and a charging cable as well as a wall adapter.
The battery measures 22mm in diameter and it only comes with a firing button and micro-USB charging port, however the build quality, materials used and finish are all top quality â€“ as you might expect from something thatâ€™s designed in the USA. It has a total capacity of 2,500mAh and itâ€™s regulated, meaning it will always fire at 4.2V, despite the remaining charge. It can fire as low as 0.2 Ohms and you can also use it with any other 22mm tank as it comes with a spring loaded 510 connector.
The Spitfire Tank that comes in the box is also a very capable sub ohm powerhouse which holds a maximum of 3.5ml of e-juice and has a Derringer style airflow adjustment mechanism at the base. Itâ€™s build from solid stainless steel and Pyrex glass and the top cap also resembles the Derringer. In fact the whole top cap comes right off but this is only for design purposes only as the tank is bottom filling. It measures 22mm in diameter and it works with the Spitfire Coils which are known for their vapor production and flavor.
The Praxis Survival Starter Kit has a very ergonomic and sleek design and it has the company logo right near the base, with the micro-USB charging port diametrically opposite. The notification light will let you know when the battery is charging and when itâ€™s 100% full. We love the matte style finish on both the mod and the tank and they make a very nice combo. Itâ€™s not a kit we would recommend to people who are just making the switch from actual cigarettes because of the whole sub ohm design. We did test both the 0.2 Ohm and the 0.5 Ohm coils and it really is a beast when it comes to delivering clouds. Flavor is also quite good but the vapor tends to get a bit too warm with the 0.2 Ohm version.
Itâ€™s a great kit for everyone looking for a small and very portable sub ohm device that really delivers clouds from the first puff to the last, regardless of your battery charge. The Spitfire tank looks and vapes stellar and we love the similarities with the Derringer RDA. The lightning bolt style juice wicking holes on the coils are something unique and really add style to the whole design.
