Arymi Gil Kit
This week I take a look at the Arymi Gil Kit, an atomiser and temperature regulated box mod combination.
Here we have the exterior of the box. A nice clear picture of what you are paying for on the cover.
Inside the box we find that the Arymi Gil Kit consists of the Arymi Pro One box mod and the Arymi Gille atomiser.
Under the main device parts we find a few accessories and the user guide.
Here is the user guide, for those that like to read it from a small picture.
The included accesories are the USB charge lead (can charge at up to 2amps), some japanese cotton wicking material, 2 spare coils and a spare pyrex tank (with o-rings).
Here we have the Arymi Pro One box mod. It is available in black, white or this stunning stainless steel version.
The top is clean and neat with just a stainless steel threaded 510 connector, and brass self adjusting positive pin.
The base is just as neat with just a few pieces of information etched in it, and a finger nail notch to remove the battery cover.
The battery cover panel covers the entire back edge of the device and comes off just by pulling on it. It is held in place securely with two large neodymium magnets.
The battery compartment is clearly marked with the battery orientation, and has a fixed positive and spring loaded negative connector (both in brass).
With the battery installed and the cover back in place, the back edge has a neat and flush fitting to the device.
Here we have the front control face of the Arymi Pro One.
At the top there is the full width flush power button, etched with the Arymi logo.
Below that we have the large OLED display panel.
Below the display is a full width and flush rocker type up/down button for the adjustment of the device settings.
And lastly we have the (up to) 2 amp charging USB socket.
The display is large, clear and bright enough to show up clearly even under my bright studio lights.
You might notice some ‘strobing’ effect in the display, this is due to camera speed and is not noticeable to the eyes (you will always see the brighter colour).
The Arymi Pro One has 2 main modes, watts or temperature regulated.
In watts mode you will see watts, volts, atomiser ohms and a battery meter on the display.
In temperature mode the watts and volts will be replaced with temperature and watts respectively.
A few specs for the Arymi Pro One …
The device measures 82 x 43 x 22mm and weighs 135 grams,
It takes a single 18650 battery,
It can output from 7 to 75 watts and up to 9 volts,
It can operate with a coil from 0.1 to 2.5 ohms.
It offers temperature control functions for nickel, titanium, stainless steel (316) or nichrome wire,
Temperature control can be set to 100 – 300 Celsius (200 – 600 Fahrenheit).
Here is the Arymi Pro One with the included Gille tank installed.
So, here we have the Gille tank atomiser that comes with the Arymi Gil Kit.
It has a standard stainless steel threaded 510 connector, with a brass positive pin.
The drip tip is a slightly unusual plastic type tip, that covers part of the tank top.
Here we can see the part of the tank the drip tip covers. This is a standard diameter drip tip, so as long as you have your own drip tips that are short enough to not block those slots, you can use those.
Those slots are the exit from the tank for the vapour.
Here you can see that top removed, you can see the slots and how they are the only path for vapour to exit the tank.
In the top of the tank you can see the cap contacts with the top of the coil (which you can see in the second picture.
Here we can see a few more details of the tanks upper half.
Air comes in via four small tubes, directly and closely to the coil, it picks up the vapour and then passes up through two large slots.
Then it finally passes out through the two smaller cap slots and out the drip tip.
Here we can see the coil. These are currently Kanthal but Arymi intend to add stainless steel versions very soon.
You can also remove and replace the cotton in them quite easily.
Here we can see the air inlet for the tank. These flute like tubes cause a focused air flow to pass extremely close to the coil.
As there is no control of air flow, it has to be said that the atomiser is a tight lung hit, or a loose mouth hit type of air flow.
Earlier we saw that the Gille atomiser has a replaceable tank (and a spare in the kit).
It is a simple unscrewing of the tank top to do this, and the tank then just slips off.
As I have the tank off, here is a picture of the tank base and the brass positive pin in the bottom of it.
You can also see that the tank base has a fill level max marker on it.
OK, lets start with the box mod. The Arymi Pro One is stunning in stainless steel finish. It has to be said though that parts of it are in fact polished zinc alloy, not that you could tell by the finish on them.
It is light enough and small enough for me to like it (and I really do insist on small and light these days). It also has all the features I want (with one exception) such as good single battery power output and temperature control.
The one thing it lacks that is a shame is the ability to set my own temperature coefficient. This isn’t serious as most of the wires are already there, that said I wouldn’t mind being able to set it for stainless steel that isn’t 316L grade.
The full width buttons look and feel great to use. I was worried by the single rocker type button for up and down when I saw it, once I had used it I lost that worry and was more than satisfied with its operation.
The Gille tank atomiser reached me a few months earlier in another version, with a ‘notchcoil’ type configuration. I liked it like that but worried about coil cleaning and re-wicking.
In its current configuration, with a ‘normal’ wire coil setup, the coils last longer and work better. It is easy to clean and re-wick.
It has no air flow control, which some will not like. I found it had a ‘middle of the road’ air flow, somewhere between mouth and lung hit flows. Personally I was more than happy with the air flow, you should check one out first to make sure you will be.
I can’t tell you the suggested retail price, what I can say is that these kits are showing up online at about $43 (£41). At that price it is a steal, more that worth the money.
Arymi has a website, it is new and improving all the time but still a little ‘slow’ at times.
