E-Cig Review: Mig Cigs Z Stick 40 Watt Box Mod
The good / The Z stick is a beautiful and eye catching personal vaporizer device. We have tried difference mods that were blinged out to look great but had below than average performance. This is not the case for the Z stick, the performance and reliability was even better than the way it looks! The mod has a unique ergonomic shape that is uncommon with the usual square or box shaped devices we have today.
Paired with one of the best and easy to use tank atomizer today, the combination is flawless and gives the user plenty of different options whether you are a fan of normal or sub ohm vaping. The Z tank bubble basically is a sub tank mini with a polycarbonate bell cap, so it also benefits from the airflow options and overall performance of the sub tank mini.
The bad / The Z tank coils comes with 2 prebuilt coil heads but without the rebuildable deck section. The 2200 mah battery is non removable.
The bottom line/ The Z stick and bubble tank allows sub ohm vaping simply by screwing on the included 0.5 ohm coil head. It has a rated output of 5W to 40W equivalent from 2 – 10 volts. The package is very well built with smooth threads and a spring loaded connection. It is compatible with other tank atomizers from Mig Cigs' line up.
One of the nice features of the Z stick is the hand squeeze button. Instead of a single fire button, you are able to fire your tanks and atomizers by simply squeezing the device. The ergonomic shape of the device feels very natural to the hands even if you are a left or right hander. Settings are easily adjusted and can be reviewed on the OLED screen. Charging time is around 2 hours via a 1 amp charger through a USB port on its side.
The Bubble tank holds 3 ml of ejuice and has vertical coils installed at either a 0.5 ohm and 1.2 ohm capacities. The food grade polycarbonate shell makes this robust tank that can handle the usual bumps or accidental drops. The clear tank looks great on top of the black Z stick and shows you how much e juice you have left inside the tank.
Design and performance
The device performs as advertised and is able to hold its charge for 2 days with normal to heavy use. Build quality is solid with no rattles. The connection is made of stainless steel and is spring loaded so that any tank or atomizer can be fitted through its 510 connection without any issues.
For safety, the device will shut off when it gets too hold and will show a "temp protection" message on its OLED screen for 5 seconds.
Vapor production and quality
There are 3 different air hole options for the Z tank and these can be adjusted depending on the user's preference through an airflow ring. Different settings are available depending on the coil you are using inside the tank to control the warmth of vapor you are accustomed to.
This device and the Z Buuble tank combination will give the user so many options to choose from. Cloud chasing is easy by bumping up the wattage and opening the air flow. You can also restrict the airflow and set the wattage lower to get the best flavor from your ejuice.
How to use the Z Stick
1. We recommend fully charging your battery before turning on the device. This usually take 2 hours for a full charge.
2. Take the Z bubble tank atomizer and remove the bottom piece and place 2 – 3 drops of e-liquid directly on the coil. This will prevent the coil from burning the dry wicking material on your first use. Do this every time you are changing your coils. Always prime it first or be sorry.
3. Fill the tank up with e-juice up to the top on the chimney, and then screw in your atomizer to the tank. Do not over tighten, just finger tight.
4. Set the wattage settings to 10 watts. Grip the Z stick tightly when taking a draw.
5. Adjust the wattage of air hole size as needed depending on your preference.
6. Enjoy it!
