Vaping the Steam Crave Aromamizer Supreme V3

Using some slightly higher-nicotine e-liquid, my first draw was on the tank’s tightest setting, and it was tough for my sub-ohm-trained lungs to adjust. But after a few conscious, deliberate MTL draws, I quickly remembered why so many ex-smokers still prefer to vape this way.

Using the Aromamizer Supreme V3 at a conservative 22 watts, the vapor coming from the tight airflow, narrow chimney adapter and slender mouthpiece delivered a potent burst of rich, nuanced flavor and a surprising amount of throat hit — rivaling even some of our more powerful pod devices.

As a wide-open, direct lung atomizer, the Supreme isn’t AS successful. Sure, it can still create a solid amount of vapor, but Steam Crave always puts flavor at the forefront of its designs. While expert builders will certainly find a way to fog a few rooms with the Supreme V3, most users will shut down that airflow and use this RDTA as it was likely intended.

I adjusted the airflow to fully open the proceedings, but like has been the case lately, restricted lung vaping didn’t seem to be as good. Moving to the direct lung format, I swapped in a lower-resistance coil, opted for a more-traditional (read: thicker) e-liquid, and moved the wattage a bit higher.

There was a definite increase in airflow, allowing me to create respectable clouds of vapor without sacrificing much flavor, but compared to some of today’s leading tanks and RTAs, this still felt like a restrictive experience.

The flavor was good, but nowhere near as good as when vaping the tank in an MTL manner. And we recommend using it this way if you choose to make the investment. We should mention that the Supreme V3 can also be configured as an RDA, and in our limited time reviewing it this way, we found it to be serviceable, if not a little limiting for both build space and juice well capacity. Despite this, it sits very tall for a dripper, which may or may not appeal to some users. Pros: – Complex but versatile build deck – Strong MTL flavor and performance – Lots of configuration options, including an RDA adapter Cons: – Still not an ideal direct lung performer – A little too difficult to get working – Notable flavor loss as a direct lung tank

An RDA as Well

We should mention that the Supreme V3 can also be configured as an RDA, and in our limited time reviewing it this way, we found it to be serviceable, if not a little limiting for both build space and juice well capacity. Despite this, it sits very tall for a dripper, which may or may not appeal to some users.

Pros:

  • Complex but versatile build deck
  • Strong MTL flavor and performance
  • Lots of configuration options, including an RDA adapter

Cons:

  • Still not an ideal direct lung performer
  • A little too difficult to get working
  • Notable flavor loss as a direct lung tank
