What can I say this thing is just tiny! I was really looking at this box mod for my girlfriend. She was wanting something more than her "starter" pen but smaller and easily carried around from day to day. So I figured what the hell, I'll pick one up and give it a spin.
For how small the EGrip is, one might think that the cloud production and flavor wouldn't be that great....Wrong! Even on the second to lowest setting the flavor is really impressive! Now do not get the wrong idea, you won't be entering in any cloud chasing contests with the EGrip. But compared to your traditional pen style ecig you will notice a better more dense vape with this mod. For those of you who do not like the larger mods that stand out in a crowd, or maybe you want something sturdy that you can just toss in your purse or pocket, I would highly recommend the EGrip.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind with the EGrip. First, it uses the EGrip CS coil (1.5 ohms). So your Kanger coils will not work. Second, and this is just my personal opinion, remove the airflow control screw. It will give you better airflow and less of that drinking a milkshake feeling.
Ok back to the power that this little mod puts out. I primarily used the lower to medium settings and found that I really liked the vape/flavor that I would get from it. But to put it through its test I cranked it up to 20w. Using Banana Nut Bread @ a 50/50 mix with 6 nic, I got a burnt coil taste(dry hit) from it each time...I'll be honest, you do not need to use the 20w setting on the EGrip. The lower to medium settings work really well and again the flavor is just awesome! I will be posting an update on the dry hit issue once I fill the EGrip with a different juice blend.
Overall I like the EGrip and I like the large 3.6ml pyrex tank that is built into the unit. I think I would put a shorter drip tip on it though (you can replace the drip tip). But that just boils down to personal preference. My girlfriend has taken the EGrip and made it her own. She really likes the fact that the flavor is a night and day difference from her pen style ecig. She also likes how small it is.
