Review: Vpark Maxtank Pro

Vpark was a new name for me until this tank was sent to me for the purpose of this review. In addition to making sub-ohm tanks, Vpark also delivers some regulated box mods (30,50,100 and 150 W from what I can see) and even a tube mod which can deliver up to 50W. There is also a mini version of the Maxtank with 1.5 ml capacity (18mm diameter). The Maxtank Pro looks like just another Sub-ohm tank but it does have some interesting features I haven't seen elsewhere.

In the box

The Maxtank Pro comes in a pretty small cardboard box with some foam inserts. Nothing too fancy in other words. In the box you get:
  • The Vpark Maxtank Pro with a 0.1 Ohm Ni200 head installed
  • A 0.3 Ohm Kanthal head
  • A simple black driptip for those of us that don't need the extra air-control on the one installed. 
  • The user manual
Specifications
  • Size: 22mm diameter, 64mm height
  • Juice Capacity: 2.5 ml
  • Top filling
  • Threadless coil-heads
  • 0.1 Ohm Ni200, 0.3 Ohm Kanthal and 0.5 Ohm Kanthal heads availible
  • Adjustable airflow, also on driptip
Look and feel

The Maxtank Pro looks good in my opinion. I've got the black version with orange details (o-rings and those little rubber spots that is supposed to make it easier to unscrew the top-cap I guess). It feels pretty solid as well, and the threading on the top-cap is nice and smooth.

In use

The Maxtank Pro has a few features that makes it a very nice tank to use. First of all, the top filling is great. As I said, the threading is nice and smooth and once the top-cap is off you can poor juice in there from just about any kind of bottle you have without spilling too much. There is no small holes you need to get your juice through as you can see in the picture. The air-control is nice and smooth as well and gives you more than enough air when it's fully open. Then there is the threadless coil heads. Just turn your tank upside down and you can easily change the heads without draining your tank completely. Keep in mind though that you need to be down to about 1/3 of the tank to do this or you'll have juice flooding out your drip-tip. All of these features are very well executed, making the tank easy to use and a good option for your first sub-ohm tank. No tools required, and no small parts that you can loose while filling and the fact that I've had no leaking issues whatsoever also makes it a good option when you're out and about. On the other hand, the juice capacity is quite small so you probably need to bring your juice bottle, which is a drawback.

Performance

When it comes to performance, I'd say it is ok. It's on par with the vast majority of the sub-ohm tanks that I've tried, but it's not quite up there with the best in my opinion. I have to say I find the flavour a bit muted compared to for example the UD Zephyrus. I did, however, find the flavour on the Kanthal coil slightly better than the Ni200 head and it's not at all bad, just not up there with the very best. Also, it does not have all the coil options you get if you go for a TFV4 (or the mini version). This is also one of the reasons I'd say this is kind of an entry level sub-ohm tank. I have read somewhere that an RBA head is coming for the Maxtank Pro though, which might make it a lot more attractive to experienced users.

Pros and cons

+ Excellent top filling
+ Easy coil replacement
+ Good airflow control
+ No leaking
- Flavour
- Juice capacity
- Limited coil options

Conclusion

As I've already said, I think this is a good entry level tank. Gives you a lot of flavour and vapour compared to what you're used to if you've just taken the step into sub-ohm tanks. However, if you've been in this game for a while, there are other options that can give you more flavour, at the cost of a bit more hassle. Because this is the big plus of the Maxtank... it's hassle free, easy to fill, easy to clean and easy to change coils.

Big thanks to Heaven Gifts for sending me this tank for review.
