Don’t judge the Goby by its size; this starter kit gives a very satisfying vape. The vapor production may be nothing to write home about, but the flavor on this tiny tank is surprisingly good. The 15 mm Goby tank is producing a “cleaner” flavor than many bigger tanks and its coils require hardly any break-in time to perform.
For airflow, the Goby has three 1-mm airflow holes on each side of the tank. Its draw with one hole open is a satisfying mouth-to-lung vape that is not super tight. Vapers trying to emulate a cigarette draw can restrict it even further due to the tank’s fully adjustable airflow. With the airflow fully open it is still MTL, but of the airier variety. While a direct-lung vape is technically possible, there are lots of devices out there that are better suited for this kind of draw.
I found one hole to be perfect for my taste, and while there was little difference in performance between the various power settings, I settled on the 13-watt option. Chain-vaping on the higher power settings of the battery warmed up the tank a little bit but nothing out of the ordinary. A couple of minutes on the desk and it was back to normal.
Judging from devices that share the size of the Goby I was expecting it to require higher nicotine e-liquid. While in many similar kits raising the nicotine level is almost a necessity, the 6 mg e-liquid I am using for MTL atomizers was satisfying on the Goby. I tried 9 mg and liked it too, but didn’t feel the need to go higher with freebase nicotine. Where I found the Goby really excelled was with a 20 mg nicotine salts e-liquid. I’d strongly advise giving nic salts a try with this one.
I loved the easy top-fill and had no leaking after refills. I didn’t have any dry hits with a 70 VG e-liquid, although I would still advise something closer to a 50/50 for this one. The coils also seem to last a long time. I’ve refilled the tank more than ten times on the same coil and haven’t noticed any drop in flavor whatsoever.
