Geekvape Blitzen - A Visit from St. Nicholas?

I would like to thank Healthcabin for sending me the Blitzen free of charge for review. Despite that I will give my honest opinion.

Packaging:

The Blitzen comes in the standard orange and black box which is associated with geekvape. Mine is the sample pack, so yours may look a little different. The contents however, should remain the same


Contents:

1x GeekVape Blitzen RTA 24mm
1x 510 Drip Tip
1x 810 Drip Tip
1x 510 Drip Tip Adapter

1x 5ml Spare Bubble Glass Tube
1x 2ml Spare Glass Tube

1x Chimney Extender
1x Chimney Key
1x Allen Key
1x Instruction Manual
21x Spare O-rings
4x spare Grub Screws 4x Spare Grub Screws (yeah I lost one )


Observations:
The tank is nicely finished, well machined and clean, as I have come to expect from Geekvape. There are several features that are unmistakeably similar to Steamcrave tanks. Since I love my Steamcrave gear, I’m happy to see a few features emulated here.

The deck on the Geekvape Blitzen is very similar to the Steamcrave Aromamizer Plus - just slightly smaller in size. I love my postless decks - I find them super easy to use.

The 18mm deck is a breeze to build on and will fit some decent sized coils should you wish to put some biguns in.

The similarities don’t stop with the deck. The Airflow is also quite similar - it provides ample air and a smooth quiet draw which hits the coils at a perfect angle. I tend to build a little closer to the deck and found that the large airflow enabled me to do this without a compromise in flavour.

The Blitzen gives me a great moist warm vape with plenty of flavour. It comes in 5 colours making matchy matchy a bit easier for the ocd among us.

For those of you in the EU, the Blitzen comes with a 2ml glass installed for TPD compliance. For the rest of the world, changing to the 5ml bubble glass and installing the chimney extension will likely be the first thing done. Be aware that using the 5ml bubble glass will make the Blitzen a wee bit taller and while I don’t notice much flavour loss, it could be an issue for some. Using the bubble glass does upset the clean lines of the tank, but I am simply too lazy to fill it as often as I would have to when using the 2ml glass.

I have always liked the number of spare parts and odds and ends that Geekvape provide with their gear, I particularly like the chimney key and have found it a useful tool on other tanks.

Conclusion:
I really like the Geekvape Blitzen and in the 2 weeks of using it have not found any major cons.

Pros & Cons:

Pros
Nice smooth large airflow
Easy to build postless deck
Loads of spares
Drip tip options
Great Flavour in both 2ml and 5ml mode

Cons
Can be a little tricky lining up the slots on the deck so the coils are positioned correctly with the airflow holes.

I would love to see the fill holes in a recess just so any spilt juice doesn’t squeeze out and run down the outside of the tank.

Would I buy it?
Sure I would, the price is reasonable and the tank is a quality tank. It can be yours from Healthcabin for $34.20 (at time of publishing):

In the meantime please feel free to hop on over to Steampugs to see how the Blitzen compares to other tanks currently on the market.

I am going to do just that right now and read @mjag’s review on the Blitzen.
