Firstly, Freemax Fireluke 2 is a very attractive atomizer, with a series of unique paint jobs and cutout patterns. It’s not original, but it’s shiny, well-machined, and looks good on just about any vape mod. With a 24mm base diameter and 5mL max capacity (with the extended bubble tank), there’s a reserved feel about the dimensions. But what would you rather have, a large tank that tastes mediocre? Or a smaller tank that delivers weeks upon weeks of enjoyment on a single coil? Yeah, we feel the same way.
One special shout out goes to the Fireluke 2’s anti-spit back drip tip. From what I can tell, it narrows on the way down, which manages to do exactly what the name says. The Fireluke 2 never once gurgled or spit any hot e-liquid back into my mouth. It’s the small things that separate the wheat from the chaff, and for that we are thankful.
This time around, the Chinese manufacturer decided to play it safe and came up with a classic design. Apart from the knurling on the top cap and the bottom airflow ring, there’s nothing that stands out. So if you didn’t like the original Fireluke because it was too flashy, you now have a more conventional alternative.
The FreeMax Fireluke 2 is primarily made of stainless steel and glass, is 47.8mm tall, and 28mm in diameter around the glass tube (24mm at the base). It holds up to 5ml of e-liquid and comes in a variety of colors.
The Fireluke 2 comes with a metallic 81- drip tip, which I’m not particularly fond of. It looks very nice, but the thing is when you’re vaping at around 100W – and some coil-heads are designed to be used at over 100W – the whole tank tends to get very hot. Delrin and Ultem drip tips do not conduct heat, so unless they are too short, you don’t have to worry about burning your lips, but this metal tip can get very hot, so be careful. It’s not a deal-breaker, though, as you can always replace it with another 810.
Then we have the top cap, which can’t be screwed off for filling. Instead, we have one of those ball-bearing systems where you push the top cap to the side to reveal the fill port. The exact spot where you have to apply pressure is marked with a red dot. The fill port is very large so you should have no problem fitting a big dropper or gorilla bottle tip through it. The tank holds 5ml of e-liquid, just like the original Fireluke.
At the bottom, we have a two-slot airflow control system. The holes are massive, just like on most sub-ohm tanks these days, and have stoppers on one side, so the airflow control ring doesn’t spin continuously. It had a very tight airflow control ring that required quite a bit of pressure to rotate. Unfortunately, that meant I had to hold the tank with one hand while adjusting the airflow. Otherwise, the whole tank would unscrew from the mod.
At the bottom of the FreeMax Fireluke 2, we have an adjustable, gold-plated center pin, but as always, I don’t recommend using it with hybrid mods. Just don’t use hybrid vape mods, period, they are not safe!
The main strength of the original Fireluke sub-ohm tank was the variety of quality coil-heads, from the single-coil to the quadruple and everything in between. Regardless of your vaping style, you were bound to find one you liked. The Fireluke 2 seems to be very similar in that regard, with five different mesh coils already available, and more on the way, most likely.
You currently have the TX1, TX2, TNX2, TX3, and TX4 coil-heads to choose from, which is not too bad for a new tank. The coils are not quite as tall as those of the first Fireluke, but they’re just as bulky. Another interesting change is the wicking. FreeMax introduced a patented 90% tea fiber cotton & 10% organic cotton formula which allegedly enhances the flavor even more.
All in all, not the most interesting looking sub-ohm tank I’ve ever seen, but the FreeMax Fireluke 2 is a well-made device with a lot of potentials. Let’s see how it performs.
Flavor in Freemax Fireluke 2
I’ve already touched on the flavor above, but I want to do into more detail here, as this tank’s performance certainly warrants it. The original Freemax Fireluke was a complete badass mesh tank. It was one of the first mesh coil tanks to gain traction with consumers en masse and it delivered the goods when it came to flavor.
The Freemax Fireluke 2 takes things several steps further. The coil heads have been refined to deliver even more flavor while lasting longer. I’ve been running a variety of my favorite vape juices in the Freemax Fireluke 2 and they taste utterly fantastic, almost as good as they do inside some of my more expensive RDAs, which is high praise indeed for the Freemax Fireluke 2.
The FreeMax Fireluke 2 is a solid mesh sub-ohm tank. Both the flavor and vapor production are top-notch, the build quality is above average, and apart from some minor flaws, like the super-tight airflow control ring and the metal 810 drip tip, there’s not a lot to complain about. Nice tank to grab on, it has what you seeking.
