Overview

    This is another atomizer you’ve probably seen around but never knew many details on it. That’s why I’m here for you! The Captivape Premier is not only an ultra compact tank, it is a very well functioning dripper. If you’re familiar with the Avocado, this was the flavor, smaller predecessor to the Avocado except designed better. The Premier atty has 6 juice holes in the deck. Two of the holes are used for your cotton, the other four got your back incase you over drip. Inversely, you can choose to run this as a tank and redo your wicks and just use the extra holes to fill the tank section. If wicked correctly, it will only leak if you turn it completely upside down. Otherwise, I have left this in my pocket for multiple hours in the car without having any liquid in my pants after removing.   

    I like this atty because you can have a warm, fairly airy draw with single coil or a dual coil. On any of my boxes, this little guy looks great because it’s just so small. I run this consecutively with 10w 26g 3mm and love the flavor, love the warmth, and with the sides of my wicks going down two opposing holes, no leaking. If you end up using this as a tank, you might find yourself dripping/refilling a little more frequently than you may be used to. I don’t mind this because of the convenience and size that comes with the Premier. In the end, you end up dripping less than you would with any other dripper and you refill more frequently than you would using any other tank. I will quickly add that building a single coil in the middle of the posts isn’t the easiest. However, just like anything, you get used to it after you build a few times.

    The only flaws with this atty that I can think of would have to be the level of difficulty removing the tank section when I want to clean. I feel like the tolerances are a little off for the price point of this atomizer. When I first unpacked the Premier I noticed that the machining was a little subpar. There were little flakes of metal around the screws, and I almost broke my tank trying to get it off, even after it had juice in it.

 

Should you buy it?

    For the price point of $150, this is definitely not an atomizer you pick up without thinking about it. Honestly, the best trait is absolutely the aesthetics. It’s small, you have multiple options with top caps, airflow rings to come, and many wicking options.

    Good review. I’ve actually got 3 premiers and machining on all 3 is absolutely top notch. I agree that the tank is difficult to remove. In my mind that’s actually a good thing. Going back to the days of the Genesis, I had more than one Atty with glass that was easier to remove, and ended up with juice everywhere as a result on more than one occasion. I usually don’t remove the glass section to clean – a good rinse and because the tank is short enough its gtg.

    My fav build on the premier is a single coil spaced Clapton 26/32, 6 wrap with a 3mm inside diameter. Tons of warmth, and ridiculous amounts of flavor.

    Dudes and Dudettes, I agree with everything my man said, except the machining part. Maybe it was just a fluke with the one TVS got, I haven’t seen any other mention of it.
    I really appreciate the tank being a tight fit because like the homie, Chris Hildreth, pointed out, I too have had plenty of tanks that were too loose and got me wet.
    This is an atty that I am proud to have and I will shout it’s praises from all the internet rooftops.
