I’ve been using this … aptly named Little Boy atty for a couple weeks now and I’m pretty pleased with it. I think the worst thing about it is the name, which I’d personally advise never be used for any product ever again. Shout out to the good folks over at IconVape for sending us this unit for review.
The packaging wasn’t anything special, but I don’t really understand the need for a fancy box. It came with the standard blue screwdriver and a few backup screws and o-rings. Engravings are nice, so if that’s a concern I’m sure you’d be happy with them.
I’m finding the atty really well made. I can’t find any issue with quality to the point that I’d say it’s the best made atty I’ve owned, which might lend more to the fact that I’ve only owned clones. All the same, this is a clone and I’ve not used a better made one. The 510 connection is smooth, with adjustable contact that I haven’t had to use – it fits well on my few devices without any fuss. The top cap has a single larger-than-usual o-ring that works just as well, and the top cap fits snug without being really difficult to remove (looking at you, Mephisto). The drip-tip options fit equally as well, very snug while being easy to remove. The juice well is plenty large for me, I’ve been used to a Patriot and this feels like a small pond compared to that. I’m sure folks moving from Magma or something like that would feel differently. My last note to quality is that this atty has posts that don’t require drilling and screws that don’t back out – they actually feel like they’re meant to be there. Odd, I know.
As to what makes this atty “special” is … not a lot. There’s very little I would say “oh, that’s neat” when looking at it. I think the only thing that’s unusual is the drip tip section of the cap. I’d suggest consulting an image, as I don’t think I can describe it effectively – the part that screws onto the body of the top cap is fairly neat. It’s pretty quick to unscrew and the threading is very nice so it’s a great way to drip if you’re uncomfortable going through your drip tip. The included super-wide-bore-dunnowhatwe’recallingit tip is an awesome addition, I expect it to be a common addition to high-output atties going forward. It’s silly to have a ton of airflow available and have to use a small drip tip, so well done on that.
Everything else, while well done, is very standard. Options for dual and single coil, options to restrict airflow as much as you could want. Wide open is fairly nice, I’d personally gripe that it could be slightly more. It’ll keep up with my best quad coil, but it’s very hot so… I don’t want to say it’s a large con, but it could have slightly more. Sorry, I like my airflow. You’ll find the usual three-post, three hole design to build on – which I prefer, but I’m sure some might be annoyed without the dual-hole center post. The post holes are plenty wide enough to accommodate any but the largest, most ridiculous builds.
To summarize, I’d recommend this to somebody that wants at least ONE atty that just works – or an excellent first atty, I’d wholeheartedly recommend it to somebody trying to break into the RDA scene. There’s very little that’s fancy, I don’t think “flavor chasers” would flip their shit about it, but it works really well. I’m usually one to take a drill to everything I own, but I haven’t been very tempted in this case. It’s super solid and has everything you could want in a standard dripper without any fooling/drilling/destruction required.
I really want to give it 5/5 because it’s basically all I want in an RDA. I don’t want cool but leaky top/under airholes, I don’t really want crazy huge juice wells… But that’s me, y’know? So maybe for well done I’d give it 5/5 and ingenuity/originality something like 2/5.
