The Freemax Fireluke is out and I’m officially on the bandwagon.
I wasn’t really impressed with earlier offerings like the Syclla or Pure – though the Starre Pro was decent. The Fireluke is an entirely different beast. When it first appeared, I met with the usual comments of “game changer”, “best tank ever” and “unbelievable flavour” – things I hear every time a new atty comes out, so I was somewhat cynical. I also wasn’t a fan of the original knurled pattern on the atty and drip tip ( the same pattern is still on the coil head ). When Freemax released the smooth coloured resin versions, I decided to try.
The Fireluke is a 24mm diameter, bottom airflow tank that uses a proprietary mesh 0.15ohm coil rated at 40-90W. The coil itself uses organic cotton that doesn’t change the taste of your favourite e-liquids. The coil design and use of mesh is to allow for more even heating and and a bigger coil surface for more saturated flavour. It works….and well. The atty produces thick, dense clouds with full flavour and excellent mouth feel. It’s the best of both worlds with a pre-made coil.
Use the normal procedures for saturating your new coil…there is a lot of cotton – a few drops on the visible coil itself, along with a few dry pulls – break-in for a new coil has been less than a 3ml tank full. Coil life has been excellent – the first coil lasted over a week using this as my main device with a super sweet liquid. I got 6 days and well over 30mls ( your mileage may vary ) running the tank at 55 watts. Replacements come in a 5-pack and each coil is individually packaged in its own sleeve. No RBA head is currently available.
The tank itself is SS316 and the clear section is Pyrex – so no issues with liquids that are harsh on plastics. The 3ml design is a little small as this atty is a “juice hog” – but the shape and size of the 3ml is pleasing on a mod. The constant battle of re-filling is made easy with a screw-on top cap and wide fill holes. Filling is easy. Fireluke used the standard 510 and build quality is excellent. The only complaint is the 810 wide bore drip tip O-rings did not hold as firmly as they should – easily solved if you have slightly bigger replacements.
Usable at the lower 40ish watt threshold, but this atty shines above 65 watts. FLAVOUR, CLOUDS, LONG COIL LIFE. Better than the Crown 3.
