    ECHO Review

    Hi Vapers,

    My Echo arrived a couple of hours ago from Health Cabin (the reduced prices on these make them a very affordable unit). The version they sent is the manual 650maH Variable Volt. (I did order a less expensive kit with 1300maH batteries, but am happy enough with this one as I think the size is a little more suitable for a woman. However replacement 1300's are available for a try with them later). All the Echo kits from HC come with 5 cartomizers and an ego carry case, and 2 whistle tips.

    Battery: It has a 5 click system whereby you can change the voltage to any of the 3 settings which are 3.2v, 3.7v and 4.2v. However, as a first time user of VV i am not sure which setting is which as there is no indicator on the battery to show it, i guess i just have to learn more able VVs, but this is no biggy. The battery has an LED indicator to show how charged it is. This feature i like a lot, as so far i have only used a 510 which i am never quite sure of unexpected run-out.

    Cartomiser: Takes 2.3ml but i didn't measure how much i put it. It is advised that you let the cartomiser sit for awhile after filling. I filled it slowly, while turning and there was no problem with leakage at all. Let it sit for a good 5 minutes.

    Soft Whistle tip: Love this feature, so easy to use the unit with this.

    Threads: 510/ego threads on cartomisers and batteries so is interchangeable with any of these.

    Use: It is totally quiet to use, no snap crackle and pop, nor any drawing noise. Creates great vapour on all of the 3 voltage settings. The Echo is such a huge improvement on the 510 i've been using for a couple of weeks, i am extremely happy!!! :-)

    I'm probally thinking of the wrong battery, but as well as how charged the batt is LED on the bottom,
    I thought thay also had a small ring around the top which lit up with a different colour for the different voltage?

    Yes, you are right, Flea. Thanks. I hadn't noticed the ring lights changed with the various volt levels, and hadn't read up on it yet either seeing as i'd been expecting a different kit to this one. Still, very glad to have the VV one, if only for the charge indicator feature.

    I have one of these too Bella, and I really like it. Only trouble is I vape at the highest setting, full blue circle, and it drains the battery pretty quick. But I luckily have a back up batt

    Using the same resistance atty at the different voltages, 3.7 & 4.2 volts will have 75% and 58% of the battery life compared to 3.2 volts

    Pisces, yeah it's a good unit, but did you notice the mouthepiece tips smell and taste a little plasticy? I started to notice it with more use, and only after i'd done my review. Hoping i can find some silicon ones or other ones that will fit the carto end.

    My two mouthpieces got lost, never to be seen again.
    I assume by dragging my PV from my pocket to my mouth.
    Neither has been missed. I'm happy sucking on the hard mouth piece.

    I am only making an assumption here....I cant find mine nor remember, but

    Would a Type A eGo Drip tip fit?

    I think so....not sure. Someone with both handy might be able to help out and answer that one.

    Hi Hack, Using a sewing tape-measure, i've measured the bottom of the Echo tip at 33mm diameter, if this helps.
