Along with the Simba they also sent out a selection of pre-made coil, a coiling kit screwdriver set, delrin drip tips and a SnapBack UD hat and vaping T-Shirt. Which will be reviewed at a later date.
The Simba arrived in a nice presentation box, with an image of the Simba RTA on the front of the box, and the product QR code, scratch and Sniff on the back.
The top of the box slides off with ease, to reveal the RTA, snugly sitting, in a cut out foam tray.
The top foam tray lifts off, pulling the pull tab, to gain access to the rest of the kit, underneath.

The Simba comes in a choice of two finishes, either stainless steel or black,
The Simba came complete straight out the box, mine had the CCC coil pre-installed, ready to juice and Vape.
The Simba easily breaks down into its component parts, for simple cleaning and maintenance.
The top cap has a removable 510 colour matched drip tip.
The 510 drip tip , has an adjustable draw flow control, which allows you to adjust the flow of air through the drip tip. This is done by simply rotating the inner core of the drip tip.
Rotating it from half open, through to closed off, even fully open, (half) I found it slightly restricted, and found myself accidentally adjusting it, when removing the top cap to fill up with juice.
The top cap, has a large rubber seal on the inside, to ensure a tight seal when when screwed down.
The top cap screws down securely onto the tank/chimney top plate, which has two kidney shape cut outs, which the juice is filled through.
The inner lip of the top plate, is threaded, which the chimney section threads into, to hold the tank together.
The chimney section, has an oring located just below the top threaded to ensure a tight seal.
The chimney runs down to the base section of the tank, which has an oring installed at the base, which the glass sits down into.
The inner chimney has a spiral threaded machined into the inner tube, to assist with the vortex motion of the vapor, as it is drawn up the chimney.
The base section of the Simba, contains not only the air flow channels, but also a ceramic block at the base, to help disperse the heat from the 510 connection. Plus to collect any condensation that my gather beneaf the coil.
The Simba also features a ceramic condensation ring that doubles up as the airflow control ring, which is used to adjust the airflow.
The Simba comes with three coils included in the kit, to cover a wide range of vaping requirements
Aesthetics and Build Quality
The Simba has a great look and feel to it, well designed and thought out,
