    Origen V1 Clone breakdown pictures and review.

    Hi everyone,

    Today im going to review my Origen v1 Clone i received from vapingtech. Im going to the point of being over critical but i would like to point out everything i have found so you know what to expect. No issues are close to being a deal breaker for me though. I do not own the authentic version, since they cannot meet the supply to keep up with demand


    Shipping: Price was very reasonable $10 flat rate. No postage options like express but that doesn't bother me. I ordered on the 2nd, was processed and shipped on the 3rd, Received it on 7th... 5 days shipping time i was stoked about

    Price: $45+$10 postage = $63.94 AUD - Not a cheap clone by any means, but product is of such quality it doesnt bother me. Im guessing when this starts to hit the major suppliers we will see a decrease in price. If a authentic Origen could be sourced for around the $120 mark then i would of taken that option as resale value is still quite high. Its a pain to find and they do not make enough to meet demand so im happy there is a good clone out now.

    Packaging: Decent, comes in a nice foam cutout protecter in a square box, looks cheap but does the job and who cares about what packaging look like?

    Build quality: Very good, but there are issues.

    Drip tip is well machined and no issue at all. 10/10

    Top air flow ring. 10/10

    Top cap. 9/10 (That dealio with a bunch of holes drilled into it).
    When holes had been drilled they were not deburred on the insides and needed a slight file. Once filled (2 second on each hole) its perfect. 10/10 after file

    Bottom deck. 9/10
    Everything is very well machined and finished, the only issue i have is that the center post can spin and is not adjustable. The spinning issue is not to big, once you have your center pin tightened onto the atty it will not spin unless you use excess un-needed force, once you know its an issue its easy to not do, you just need to make sure when you rebuild it after a complete breakdown that its tightened down good.(This is more my fault than anything) While pin is not adjustable it fits 6 different mechs and my SVD just fine. 510 threading is alright, little too loose unless you have it tightened all the way down though but this is like many RBA's i own.

    Juice capacity- From a completely empty RBA with the included wick in the pic it works out to be 1ml-1.3ml without overfilling. I can have it filled completely, with the largest dual airholes open and lean it on a 45 without it leaking.

    Tolerances.
    Tolerances between air-hole alignment and part fitment is 10/10. All air-holes line up perfectly and the top cap tightens on perfectly onto the bottom deck while with the top airflow ring has the perfect amount of movement and fitment
    onto the top cap.

    O-rings. 6/10
    This is the biggest issue i had with my Origen which is good as its an easy fix. Ive included photo's for reference but i took off the original 2 orings on the top cap and replaced it with a single oring at the top, This is now perfect where as before it was way too tight, even 1 original o-ring was too much and it needed a slimmer o-ring.

    Bottom o-rings and driptip rings work jut fine, The oring for the driptip is very thick and will need something different than the usual orings most people will have but other than that its all good and they do supply you with spares.

    Needed a clean but you should do that with any RBA you buy anyways.


    5/6 wraps with 28g = .5


    Original o-ring is on the left, the one i used is on the right and comes with most drip tips.



    If a mod sees this could you rename my thread to Origen please :P

    Haha the blue ink is krankenberry, one of my adv atm. It looks good for pictures.

    It performs like any other RBA with .5 on it :P I can say its easy to use and refill, barely any leakage, none when not tipped beyond a 45 angle.
    Getting your coils on could be easier but its not difficult, just a little time consuming, once i get used to it though it shouldn't be an issue.

    Flavor wise its as good as any other RBD ive tried, running at .5 ohms on everything means i have that much vapor being produced that its flavor country all day everyday

    Yeh im very happy with it, was considering getting the V2 but its money i dont need to spend (Like 90% of all vaping purchases) and i was a little hesitant that if i didnt like it it would of been a waste, after using this for a few days though im already considering it.You should do a review when you get your v2

    It'll be a good minute until it actually arrives :/. From what I hear, the performance of the two are pretty much the same. Even though the V2 has a (further) reduced chamber, I read that there is no difference in flavor. The only reason that I purchased the original over the clone is that I moved out of the city and am now saving tons on rent!
