Honest review time: The Rincoe Mechman Kit

Here’s a look at an interesting new kit from a company called Rincoe. It’s a new company to me but it look like they’ve been around for at least a little while now quietly putting out new vape related products including a few kits and a few pod devices. The kit we’re looking at today is called the Rincoe Mechman. A bit of a misleading name as it’s actually a regulated subohm mesh kit but I’ve got to say I was quite surprised by it’s build quality and construction. I picked mine up from Heavengifts.com where it’s available for a very reasonable price. These are my honest thoughts on the Mechman 228w Mesh Kit from Rincoe.

Packaging and contents:

The kit comes in a black and green cardboard box with a few depictions of the kit on the front in the different available styles and a listing of the contents, some company info and an authenticity check sticker on the back. Everything in the kit is protected by a thick black sponge insert and in the kit you get the Mechman mod, the Mechman mesh tank, two types of mesh coils(one already installed), a spare bubble glass tank, a small bag containing extra o-rings, a short micro USB cable, a user manual, a warranty card, a warning card, an instruction card and a QC certificate. While it doesn’t come with a bunch of extras it does come with everything you’d need to get started shy of juice.

The tank:

The Mechman tank is a pretty standard looking subohm tank. At the top it comes equipped with a swirly resin 510 tip that’s pretty much a straight barrel. It matches the tank nicely and is comfortable enough on the lips. Just below that is the slide to open top fill port. A little white arrow is marked on the top of the cap to indicate where you need to push to open it up. Once open you’ve got a little kidney shaped hole lined with silicone that’s used to fill the tank. It holds a very decent 4.5ml of liquid thanks to that bubble tank and if you happen to break it the kit includes a spare but no straight glass with this kit. Towards the bottom of the tank it’s got adjustable airflow via the bottom airflow control ring which opens and closes two fairly wide cyclops style slots with stops at either end. To access the coil just unscrew the top tank piece from the bottom and you can unscrew your coil to replace it with another. Like most tanks though you’ll need it to be almost empty before swapping coils.

The coils:

Generally speaking, a tanks performance usually depends on the coils it ships with and with the Mechman kit you get two to choose from. The one that comes installed is a single coil mesh atomizer rated at 0.25ohm with a suggested range of 40-60w. I found it performed well around the 50-55w mark producing good flavour and a solid amount of vapour. It was a bit on the airy side and was more about clouds than flavour but still did a decent job. About what I’d expect from a decent mesh coil these days.

The other coil included in the kit is a dual coil mesh head rated at 0.2ohms with a recommended range of 50-80w. I found it ran considerably hotter than the single coil and also took up quite a bit more space in the tank so obviously the tank will hold less liquid when using it. For me I didn’t really want to run it higher than 70-75w as it tended to get warm pretty quickly. Flavour and vapour again were about on par with what I’d expect from a dual mesh coil. Longevity of both coils obviously will depend on the liquids used, vaping habits and even QC on the coils but I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to get about as much life out of them as most other mesh coils in their range.

The Mod:

The Mechman mod at first glance might seem a bit busy but it’s actually a fairly simple and easy to use device. It’s a dual 18650 device that I’m guessing is made of some type of zinc alloy as it feels incredibly solid in the hand and even a bit heavy. Rincoe has also gone to great lengths to keep the size to a minimum making it fit and feel great in the hand. Being that I’d never used a Rincoe device before I wasn’t sure what to expect but once I held it in hand I was quite impressed by the quality of it. It feels really well put together compared to so many of the cheap plastic devices that flood the market. I get that because of its size and weight it might not be ideal for everyone but I think many will appreciate its almost industrial look and feel. On either side there are sort of extra design elements incorporated in to the door and back panel that look like an X or wings with the kit coming in three different styles, Steel case, Steel Wings and Steel bone. Underneath the metal design of the door panel it can also sport an image, a flag or a design in the form of a sticker. It really gives the device some flair while also adding a bit of grip. Mine had the Union Jack on it which I think is cool but only cause the wife is British. According to Rincoe you can also swap panels and stickers to really change up the style of your device and make it your own.

On the very top it’s got a nice centered stainless steel 510 plate with what looks like a gold plated spring loaded 510 center pin. It easily supports atomizers up to 28mm without overhang since the 510 pretty much reaches across the entire top. Down the face of the mod it sports a trigger style button, an OLED screen, two adjustment buttons and a micro USB port for charging. It charges at a rate of 1A but no mention of balance charging and also no mention of any firmware updates. The buttons are all plastic but work well with no rattle to them while the bright OLED screen is well laid out and easy to read but looks and feels just a tiny bit dated. On the screen it shows the mode, the watts, the resistance, fire time and Volts. If in temp control mode it also shows temp with watts replacing volts at the bottom. On the bottom of the device it’s got a bit of basic branding and some vent holes should anything go amiss with the batteries.

Performance wise it fires up to 228w and can fire as low as 0.08ohms up to 5ohms in VW mode, while in TC it fires as low as 0.05ohm up to 3.5ohm. It seems to handle TC very well. It uses the usual five clicks to turn it on and off and three clicks will highlight the mode lettings you switch between VW, Bypass and TC(Ni/Ti/SS/TCR). If in TC mode pressing the button four time will let you adjust the watts. It pretty much includes all the usual features users expect and also includes safety features like Over-heat, low voltage, reverse battery, short-circuit and a 10 second cutoff. Though I’m not exactly sure what chip they are using in the device it seems capable enough and includes all the usual features and functions I’m used to.

Overall:

I really don’t have much to say about the Rincoe Mechman, it’s actually a surprisingly well-built device that preforms as I’d expect from a device in its range. The mesh coils it comes packed with did a great job providing good flavour and vapour without any leaking and above all else it’s one of the most affordable kits I’ve seen in some time. I think this kit would be well suited to anyone looking for an affordable well put together dual battery mesh kit that’ll keep up with the rest of them!!
