JOMO Tech Royal 60
The latest in the Royal series of vape pens, the Royal 60 has a couple of surprises in store. Standing a petite 122mm tall and 22mm round, it's just a little bigger than a standard BIC lighter and doesn't weigh much more either.
Powered by a 2000mAh Smart battery, it has a range from 20W - 60W and delivers the full 60W each time you hit the fire button for a full day of vaping pleasure . . . it'll run a little longer if you don't have it in your face constantly.
With air flow fully open all the time, you'll get clouds of vapor on each draw and with the wide bore 810 mouthpiece, it's even easier to get those clouds happening.
The Royal 60 offers a choice of two types of coil : a standard 0.25 ohm coil or the funky new 0.17 ohm mesh coil.
The standard coil produces heaps of vapor and has the usual life span of 3 - 4 weeks [some people get longer out of them than others and that's generally dependent on the liquids they're vaping : darker liquids will kill a coil quicker than lighter liquids].
The mesh coil produces bucket loads of vapor with a fabulously full, rich flavour. The organic cotton inside the coil is held in by a fine sheet of mesh [instead of a coil of wire] which distributes the heat evenly over the entire surface of the coil, vaporising liquids perfectly and producing purer flavours. I'm not entirely sure of their life span yet, but I'm thinking it's most likely similar to all of JOMO Tech's other coils, so 3 - 4 weeks. The other point to make about the mesh coils is that they can be a little thirstier than the standard coils.
To fill the Royal 60, unscrew and remove the top cap and fill directly into the tank. Be careful not to over-fill and don't get any liquid down the centre of the coil. Replace and screw down the top cap and let the unit stand for 2 - 3 minutes to ensure that the organic cotton is completely wet before you start vaping. Make sure that the coil is screwed tightly into the base each time you remove the top cap and don't forget to prime new coils.
To change the coil, get a grip on the top cap and glass tank, unscrew and remove them from the base. Unscrew the old coil and screw the new coil in securely. Again, make sure it's screwed in tightly and don't forget to prime new coils. Replace the glass tank and top cap and screw into place.
The LED in the fire button will flash to indicate when the Royal 60 needs charging : plug it into the micro USB cable supplied and connect to your computer, a wall plug adapter or car charger.

Important Bits You Need To Remember About The Coils
[Pay attention now, this stuff is really important, seriously]
* NEVER dry fire these coils. If you hit the fire button when the coil isn't immersed in liquid, you'll just burn it out, pretty much instantly : it only takes a couple of seconds to burn when it's completely dry and just as a side note, it absolutely reeks when it burns and the smell hangs around for a while too . . . nasty . . .
* NEVER let the liquid level in the Tank fall below the holes in the sides of the coil [the priming holes if you like]. If the liquid level does fall below the holes, the Organic Cotton inside the coil will begin to dry out. Do not use the unit until you've refilled the Tank and the coil is totally immersed in liquid again. Best practice is to never let the Tank liquid level fall below 1/4 of a Tank.
* Prime each new coil and let the unit stand for a few minutes after filling to ensure that all of the Organic Cotton inside the coil body becomes completely wet. You may notice that the liquid level will go down fairly dramatically when you put in a new coil : remember to make sure that once the coil is fully wet, there is still enough liquid in the Tank to completely cover the coil or more specifically, the priming holes at the very least.
* Best practice is to use a cloth or tissue to remove the spent coil, they're best not grabbed bare handed cause it'll be covered in liquid and you don't want to get liquid on your hands if you can help it. You can also go for tweezers or pliers to remove the coils and when you put the new coil in, you can tighten it with the tweezers or pliers but take care not to damage the coil or over tighten it.
If you are going to remove and replace the coil by hand only, be aware that the top of the coil can be sharp [because of the thread cut into it, there can be a sharp point where the thread starts], so take care not to cut yourself. Remember girls and boys, "Safety First" . . .
* It is recommended that the coils be replaced every 2 - 3 weeks, however, JOMO Tech goes further to suggest that the coils be cleaned in warm water, not boiling, weekly if the user is a very heavy vaper.
If you go with the bathing the coil ritual, it is suggested that you can extend the coil life in excess of a month or so.
PLEASE NOTE : If you do go with the bathing ritual, the coils must be completely dry before you return them to use and washed coils will need to be primed again before being used.
Just as a side note and a bit of a Captain Obvious moment, make sure you dispose of spent coils by wrapping them up or sealing them in a plastic bag so that any excess liquid will not contaminate your bin.
And here's the second Captain Obvious point : don't leave spent coils anywhere children or pets can access them.
