HorizonTech Krixus Ceramic Sub Ohm Tank Review
Budget-conscious vapers who don't find the idea of building their own coils appealing: it's time to take notice.
For the last several months, the emergence of ceramic heating cores has been lurking in the background as the "next big thing" in the vaping world. The latest addition to the ceramic core movement is the Krixus Ceramic Sub-Ohm Tank, designed and produced by HorizonTech, a heavy hitter in the tank world since introducing the Arctic Sub Ohm Tank in early 2015.
The Krixus Ceramic Sub-Ohm Tank has 4ml of e-liquid capacity with a RCC Ceramic coil heating core that only requires a strip of cotton to turn your e-liquid into vapor. Simple enough, right? This makes cost cutting a breeze – use the ceramic heating element (with resistance wire at its core generating heat but not absorbing the gunk from your e-liquid) for months on end, potentially.
The Krixus Ceramic Sub-Ohm Tank boasts the capability of producing power as high as 120 watts while still keeping up with your chain-vaping needs. A combination of Tungsten and Ceramic create the heating core that reportedly requires exchange only once per year, on average (the technology at this point is actually too new for us to have burned out enough ceramic cores to verify!). Doing the math, given the average cost of throwaway coil heads this vape tank likely pays for itself in less than 2 months.
The Krixus Ceramic Sub-Ohm Tank measures 22 millimeters in width at the base, meaning it can sit atop your favorite mod with no lip hanging over the edges. The tank is beautifully designed, with efficiency and ease of use in mind. Unlike RDAs and RTAs, this is a straightforward device that requires virtually no knowledge so far as coil building or tailoring resistance to a specific vape style.
Composed of stainless steel, Pyrex glass, and featuring excellent machine work, the Krixus certainly doesn't look like a lemon that's going to give up on you a few months into its use. Unlike other ceramic core sub-ohm tanks, the Krixus avoids a major design flaw: its' connection to the base is reinforced by much thicker-gauge metal than on other RCC-styled heating cores. I don't think we have to do much more to sell you on the idea of giving a ceramic-based tank such as the Krixus a try, once you have one in hand you'll soon realize it sells itself.
