COIL MASTER ULTRASONIC CLEANER REVIEW
If you are the type of vaper that has multiple tanks and RDA’s, then I would say that an ultrasonic cleaner of any sort is a must have. I normally run my atomizers through 3-5 cycles to get them nice, clean, and crispy. I use this unit on a weekly basis and I can honestly say that it has been a pleasure to use. This cleaner is definitely DeucesJack approved and I do believe every vaper should own an ultrasonic cleaner.
How Does It Work?
Full disclosure here, I have held off for a long time buying an ultrasonic cleaner. The reason for that is I wasn’t really sure if they actually worked. Up until the point of this review, I have been using warm water, soap, and a toothbrush to clean all of my atomizers. Not only am I going to tell you that this thing works but I’m going to tell you that it works phenomenally. I purposely took some atomizers with some really cruddy coils in them. I pulled out the wicks and I did not dry burn them on purpose just to see how the Ultrasonic Cleaner would work. I used a few drops of dishwashing liquid and I filled the basin up to the max line. This unit did an absolute bang up job at cleaning them. It actually cleaned them better than if I would have dried burned them. I would say it brought them back to almost new looking.
The next test I did was I took a coil that had a flavor stuck in it. Let me explain, a few months ago, I bought a juice that was supposed to taste like Coca-Cola. It may have been one of the worst juices I ever bought, it was horrible. I tried everything from dry burning the coil to rewicking, and anything you could think of to get the nasty, funky taste out of this coil and it just would not leave. I figured this would be a great coil to test the ultrasonic cleaner on. I took the coil, dropped it in the ultrasonic cleaner and ran it through about 8 cycles. I removed the coil from the cleaner, remounted it and there is not the slightest hint of that nasty Cola taste on the coil. I was impressed to say the least.
After I was done with both tests, I did take the water out of the basin and poured it into a clear glass. The results to me were truly amazing. You could see a definite difference in the color of the water. The water I started with was totally clear. The water I ended with had a very noticeable brownish tint to it. In the months that I’ve come to use this product, I’ve noticed that happened a lot. Even though whenever I actually do throw an atomizer in there, I do rinse it under hot water first. So it’s not like I’m throwing atomizers in there with remnants of juice in them. Even after rinsing my atomizers with hot water and putting them through the Ultrasonic Cleaner, I still get water with a brownish tint. What that tells me is this unit is doing a deep cleaning that I just would not be able to attain with soap, water, and a toothbrush.
One word of caution when using this cleaner. Do not put any type of glass in this cleaner with a tint on it. Any type of glass that is colored will get damaged and scratched in this cleaner. When it comes to the glass section of your tanks, only put clear glass sections in this cleaner.
First Impression Out of the Box
This thing kind of looks like a huge egg. It’s got a nice simple look to it with a glass cover and a stainless steel basin. I do like the color scheme. It is two-tone with Cerulean blue and white.
What’s in the Box
In the box, you will receive one Coilmaster Ultrasonic Cleaner, a white plastic basket, and a white plastic watch holder. The watch holder fits into the basket and keeps your watches upright while the cleaner does its job. There is also an instruction manual that is really well done. The basket looks like it can hold quite a few atomizers in it at once.
From Top to Bottom
Like I said in the first impression section, the outside of this unit has a Cerulean blue and white color scheme. There is a control panel with a red LED indicator. This comes on when the unit is activated. There is also a reset button as well as an on and off button. Of course, the on-off button is self-explanatory. The reset button is the button you can use if you want to turn the unit on for another three minutes after the initial cycle is done. All Cycles on this unit are three minutes and it does have an auto shut off feature. That’s one of my cons with this cleaner. I wish the cycle was a lot longer than three minutes. I find it very annoying that I constantly have to keep hitting the reset or on button after only 3 minutes. I think Coil Master should have made the cycle longer or given the user the choice to make it longer.
The outside of the unit is made out of some sort of hard plastic. It has a clean, sturdy look and it is well done. On the bottom of the unit, you will find four rubber legs that keep the unit secure on most any surface.
The lid of the unit has a full glass piece. It opens by giving a pull on a tab that is located on the frame that holds the glass. When you close it, it does give you a very confidence inspiring quick. The hinge of the door does have a little bit of play but I’m sure that’s to be expected due to the construction and configuration of the unit.
When you open the lid of the unit, you are greeted by a beautiful stainless steel basin that also has a max fill line on it. This basin does hold 60 mls of water. You do get a white plastic basket that sits in the basin and that is perfect for holding your atomizer pieces. As I mentioned before, there also is a watch holder included just in case you want to clean your jewelry in here as well. For the purposes of this review, I will not be using the watch holder for obvious reasons.
