The Geekvape Z MTL tank was sent to me for review from Geekvape (check it out here). This is a mouth-to-lung tank that uses Geekvape’s new line of A-series pre-built coil heads.
- Mouth to Lung (MTL) tight draw
- 2ml liquid capacity
- Colors: Gunmetal, Stainless Steel, Black, Blue, Gold, and Rainbow
- $30 from Geekvape.com
In the Box
- Z MTL Tank
- Two coilheads
- Spare drip tip
- Spare o-rings
The top of this tank looks like a standard MTL tank. It has a long, thin mouthpiece and an adjustable airflow control with small holes for finer precision when adjusting the draw. These are always good things with tight-draw tanks.
Then in the middle section, you have a big letter “Z” on both sides of the tank. I think it’s a unique way of branding the tank while also giving you a good-sized window to see how full the tank is. It’s still a little hard to see how much liquid is in there though if you’re not in the right light.
The bottom of the base where the tank connects to the device is slimmer than the rest of the tank.
As you would expect from a mouth-to-lung, or MTL, tank, the drip tip is long and skinny. Whether you like that or not, it’s standard on MTL tanks for a reason because it works great and really gives you the best experience for a tight draw.
Top Cap and Liquid Fill
The top cap unscrews from the tank and gives you access to the fill ports. The tank has a small capacity of 2ml but that’s also pretty standard. It’s not designed for huge rips so 2ml is all you really need.
Since this is a top airflow tank, the tank is basically leakproof so you shouldn’t have any issues there. I haven’t had any leaking problems.
The airflow comes in from the top, runs down the sides of the tank, then beneath the coils, and up the chimney. There’s not a lot of distance for the airflow travel which is always a good thing for better flavor.
With all three airflow holes open it’s a very loose MTL draw. You might be okay doing a restricted lung draw but I think it’s just a little too restricted for that. And that’s good I think. This is an MTL tank and all airflow holes are MTL which is what you want in a tank like this. There’s just a slight change in airflow when you leave two holes open on each side but the airflow reduces significantly when you leave only one airflow hole open on each side. So I think the airflow options on here are pretty good. You can get anywhere from a really tight draw to a really loose one. So it’s great.
The Z MTL tank uses Geekvape’s line of A-series coils. I’ve never used this before so I was really interested to see how they perform. I’ve also typically been let down by pre-built MTL coils in the past, so that’s something I really wanted to look at closely.
1.2Ohm Coil Head
This coil is rated for 8-12W. The flavor production is really good. I was actually surprised at how good it is because I find that prebuilt high resistance MTL coils like this usually don’t have the best flavor. Geekvape has really improved their coils lately.
0.8 Ohm Coil Head
This coil is rated for 12-16W. I’d say this coil is as good as the 1.2 coil head, at least in its lower wattage range. It might have just a little more flavor production since it handles higher wattage and is going to have more heat, but it works great for a tight-draw hit. I do have issues with it at its max 16-watt setting though. With the airflow closed way down, it can’t wick fast enough and I start to get a burnt hit. That goes away when I open the airflow holes wide open and take a bigger hit so that’s probably what you’ll need to do if you use this coil head at 16 watts.
The coils plug right into the bottom of the tank and can be changed while the tank is full too, as long as the tank is upside down.
The Z MTL tank is a really nice tight draw tank. It has great flavor production, a really good adjustable airflow, and it’s easy to use. I’m used to seeing MTL tanks as rebuildable tanks, which aren’t easy for newer vapers to pick up and newer vapers are the people who would probably enjoy this style of vaping the most. So it’s good to see an MTL tank that works so well using pre-built coil heads. And the coil heads perform great in here too – lots of flavor and good draw. I did have a problem with the 0.8 Ohm coil getting dry at 16 watts but the 1.2Ohm coil worked perfectly within its range.
The Z MTL Tank was sent to me for review from Geekvape and you can get it from them for about $30.
