The Halo JAG6 is an advanced tank that features top-only airflow, an innovative double wall atomization chamber, ceramic cover coils (CCC) and a capacity of 4 ml of e-liquid. It sounds like a genuinely interesting device, which is somewhat surprising as it's sold by a company that specializes in e-liquid, and usually licenses technology from other companies for its hardware.

Halo Reactor Mega Starter Kit Review

Halo is one of the oldest, most respected companies in the vaping industry. Primarily known for its wide range of high-quality e-liquids, this U.S. brand also offers various vaping devices, from basic cigalikes and eGo-style kits to advanced mods and tanks. The Reactor Mega starter kit falls in the latter category, and, in my humble opinion, it's what every rebranded vaping package should be.

OBS Engine Nano RTA Review

Following the smashing success of the original Engine RTA, Chinese manufacturer OBS has recently released a Nano version of its popular tank. Contrary to what the name might lead you to believe, the OBS Nano is the exact same size as the standard model, but it does feature a single-coil build deck instead of the original Velocity deck and an improved airflow system that's supposed to improve flavor. In this review we'll be taking a close look at these changes and determine if they make the Nano...
