First off, I'd like to thank Ash and the guys over at o2 Vape for sending me this Ceram-X vape pen to review.
I've used a handful of ceramic donut type pens in the past, so I was interested to see how thing one works, seeing as o2Vape is using a new 'glazed ceramic atomizer'. When you look at the atomizer, it more or less looks like most other ceramic cups, but there is definitely a slight sheen over the sides that looks different. After a bit of use, there is a very noticeable difference with this tank; the sides of the cup don't get caked up with oil anywhere near as fast as most others, and its stupid easy to scape down the sides and get the wax back onto the center of the heating disc. Big positive for this CeramX tank.
They also made claims that with this 'glazed ceramic' the tank would be self cleaning. I was a bit dubious about those claims at first, but after a few months of throwing pretty much every type of concentrate in it that I could, even some reclaim, the only thing thats happened to the heating disc is SLIGHT discoloration. No where near as much caked on buildup as I've had with other tanks like this.
Another claim is that the tank is pretty much leakproof. Again, I was a bit dubious. But even after throwing some reclaim in the tank, I've never had even the slightest bit of leakage. I'm gonna go on a limb and say thats probably because of the way the airflow holes are designed/places. Speaking of airflow, this tank has just about the perfect amount. You don't have to pull super hard to get a good hit, and the way the air holes are positioned you aren't really making a mess in the cup from oil splashing around.
Overall, this tank works pretty damn well. It's not going to push out massive clouds, but the hits are extremely flavorful. No burning taste, get all the terpy goodness out of the concentrates. Battery life isn't too bad either, especially if you're using it on the go. My only real complaint with this pen would be the mouthpiece. Specifically, the o-rings. I've found I have to be extremely careful when I'm pulling the mouthpiece off to load up the tank, the o-rings have had a habit of popping off.
