I've owned quite a few electronic cigarette models and various battery mods over the past two years (Blu, Tornado, Tornado Tank, eGo-C, Torpedo DCT, Screwdriver MK2), but I now have a new all-time favorite: The Odyssey by Totally Wicked.
I received my Odyssey a couple days ago and have been vaping it constantly since. I absolutely love it. It's the best PV (personal vaporizer) I've ever owned and the only one I plan to use from now on.
I don't normally do e-cig reviews, but I wanted to do one for the Odyssey because I'm just that impressed with it. Before you read the review, check out the promo video:
REVIEW (Scale of 1 to 10)
Damn this thing looks slick. I can't stop staring at it. Normally I'm reluctant to take a mod into a restaurant, but the Odyssey looks so fine that I want to take it everywhere and show it off. The windows on the tank are a brilliant idea, and the notches in the button, plinth, and drip tip are classy and show just how much thought Totally Wicked put into the Odyssey's design. The whole thing is absolutely gorgeous and the best looking PV available, in my opinion.
The Odyssey is solid, sturdy, and the craftsmanship is second to none. Mine has zero flaws/blemishes, and everything fits together perfectly and screws together smoothly. I've been getting a consistent vape with no leakage or other problems. The weight is perfect, and feels great in my hand. So much so that I don't want to put it down. The activation button also locks when you twist it, which is very nice. No awkward cap to fiddle with.
I've been getting a consistent vape with a nice throat hit and plenty of vapor. I primed the cartomizer with 30 drops of juice, filled the tank, and let it sit while the batteries charged. The flavor has been good and I never got a burnt taste. I was worried at first that going from a Torpedo DCT set at 4.3 volts to the Odyssey's 3.7 volt battery was going to give me an inferior vape by comparison, but I was pleasantly surprised by the Odyssey. The vape I'm getting is perfect for my taste.
BATTERY LIFE: 7.5
The battery life is good, but not great. I'm used to the Torpedo's 2200mAh battery, so going to a 900mAh feels like quite a step down. This isn't a complaint, really, because 900mAh isn't bad. And I'm assuming the reason for the 14500 batteries is the fact that they're slim, allowing the Odyssey itself to be slimmer, which I can appreciate. Again, this isn't a complaint, I'm just noting that the battery life isn't as superior as the rest of the Odyssey's features.
Overall, the Odyssey is beautiful, sturdy, vapes great, and should last the test of time. While $99.99 is no mere pittance, I don't think it's too much to ask for this level of quality. There is no doubt in my mind that I got my money's worth. Especially since it comes with a 5-year guarantee. You can't beat that.
I highly recommend the Odyssey to newbies and veterans alike. I've been vaping for a couple of years now and have owned several mods, various tank systems, etc., and the Odyssey is by far my all-time favorite. I should also mention that the tank filling system is nothing short of brilliant. Never before has filling a tank been so easy and with no risk of getting juice on my hands. The filling system isn't an improvement, it's a brand new, awesome feature that completes the Odyssey as the most badass PV available. You can learn more about the Odyssey and purchase your own here.
Cheers, and happy vaping!
