Lemo RBA Review – Does it Live up to the Hype?

The Lemo is a large Pyrex RBA from Eleaf and iSmoka.  The product description on the VaporAlley website raved about how great this tank worked, so I had to see for myself.  You can too in this review of the Eleaf Lemo RBA.

Lemo RBA Review

The Lemo RBA is a decent enough looking RBA. It features a big Pyrex tank, an interesting chimney-style drip tip and is available in a few colors.

Lemo rba review in box imageInternally, the think sort of reminds me of a Kayfun RBA. It has the housing that screws on top of the coil mounts. e-Liquid then comes in from small gaps built into the joint between the housing and the base.

The tank is held in place by the housing unit which screws both into the top cap and the base.  Underneath the base is an adjustable battery connector. that can be tightened or loosened to change the depth of the positive battery connector.

In addition to battery connector adjustment, when the battery connector section is removed, there is a large screw that can be used to adjust airflow.

The base features an airhole in the center which vents from holes positioned around the outside of the base, and an aluminum block with two mount screws, positive and negative. The coil is situated directly above the air vent on the block.

Attached to the screws you’ll find a factory built coil.  The coil is quite large and has a cotton wick.  It metered out at 1.2 ohms on my Cana mod.

lemo rba prebuilt coil

Finding a pre-built coil on an RBA is kind of a rarity.  So is finding a decent amount of wire and cotton balls.  Enough to build several wicks of your own. In addition to the coil materials, you’ll find the obligatory screw driver, which turned out to be way too small.  Also included are spare gaskets and screws.  You will lose the screws, so having spares is downright awesome.

As I mentioned, the screwdriver is too small.  At least for filling the Lemo.  Like the Kayfun, the Lemo is filled via removing a screw from the fill hole and then using a fine-tipped bottle to inject liquid into the chamber. I gave up on the little screw driver and used one of my own with a magnetic tip to minimize the screw-losing action.

The amount of spare parts included with this setup is very nice. But the question remains, how does it vape?

Using the Lemo RBA

Typically, I shy away from performance reviews of RBAs because it will depend largely on your coil building skills and tastes. But, Eleaf’s Lemo comes with a coil and wick on board, so I’ll base my impressions on the out-of-the-box configuration.

There was one other oddity with the Lemo RBA.  When I first tried to use it, the battery connector would not make good contact with my mod.  I tried turning the screw on the positive post with the included screwdriver, but the thing would not turn.  Eventually I got a real screwdriver and loosened the connector.  Once I broke the seal, the post was easy to adjust.

Battery post adjusted accordingly, I strapped the Lemo on my Cana and walked it up to 20 watts.  I’m happy to report that performance was quite pleasing.  The flavor was great, and there were clouds to be had.

I stepped up again to 25 and the full 30 watts my mod could manage.  30 was probably a bit much and likely led to why I had to change the cotton wick out.  25 watts seemed to be about the maximum wattage the Lemo likes to handle.

Of course, with a different coil, you may find even higher wattages are workable. But, for the purposes of my trial, I kept the stock coil and found 20-25w is quite acceptable.

I’m going to go ahead and say VaporAlley’s raves about this tank were spot on.  Now, I am a little biased because I’m just not a huge fan of drippers.  I like to fill and go. The Lemo lets me do exactly that and gives me a bang up performance when I want to do some heavy duty vaping.

You can grab one of these at VaporAlley.
