About Digiflavor 

Digiflavor is a young company while the people behind it are all well experienced, the company is based in Shenzhen, China.  Digiflavor has the most advanced engineering team in the field of atomizers, the team focuses more on flavor than the cloud, the idea behind digiflavor is that flavor can be digitized!  Vaping is one of the most pleasant things in the world, digiflavor, a flavor chaser, devote to deliver the most accurate and flavored vaping experience to vapors worldwide.


The LYNX RDA is described on the Heaven Gifts website as follows:
LYNX RDA, an innovative atomizer from Digiflavor, is a RDA with switch mode between taste and cloud. You can enjoy MTL (mouth to lung) vaping with bottom airflow control and cloud chasing with side airflow control. Moreover, spring load clamps on build deck supports any kind of coil, which fits the demand of special
builds fans. Together with the leaking proof design, LYNX will bring a great vaping to you.

Packaging.
The Lynx RDA comes nicely packaged in a cardboard presentation box with a high gloss image of the RDA on the front, with the Digiflavor logo at the top and the Lynx RDA logo at the bottom, they have embossed a shimmery wave effect pattern over the top.

 

The rear section of the box is red, and has white writing on the box, giving the main features of the RDA, plus the contents of the kit, along with the scratch and check box.

As with all of my reviews, I will break the LYNX down into its component parts, before building it back up, put a build in it, and have a Vape on it and report back on my thoughts on the LYNX RDA.

 

The LYNX RDA can be broken down into four main sections, the drip-tip, the top cap, the chamber and the deck.

The Drip Tip.
The LYNX comes with black wide bore delrin Drip Tip. Measuring 13.7mm across, by 10mm tall. With an inner bore of 8.5mm, so considerably wider than the standard 510 driptip, with no airflow restriction on the connection ring.

 

The Drip Tip is held in place with two black o-rings.

If you don't want to use the wide bore Drip, you can install the delrin 510 Adaptor ring, which will allow you to install your own 510 Drip Tip.

Top Cap
The top cap in machined out of one piece of stables steel, measuring 25 mm across by 12.2mm deep. The flat top section of the top cap measures 22mm across before angling off slightly. 

 

The Digiflavor logo is engraved on the top, curving around the Drip Tip hole.

The wide Drip Tip opening measures approx 12.4mm wide centre hole which the Drip Tip fits snugly into.

Flipping the top cap over shows, the inner threading, and how The inside lip has been machined out around the Drip Tip section.

 

The top cap threads down smoothly onto the chamber section, with just the right amount of resistance to hold it in place when set.

Chamber Section.
The chamber section is what makes this RDA unique, and different from other RDA's I have review,  through the clever design of the chamber they have managed to get air-flow to run from the half way up the side of the chamber, down to underneath each coil, without  seeming to take away any of the internal chamber size.

 

The top 5mm of the chamber section is smoothly threaded, to allow the top cap the tighten down, to adjust the dual air-flow. To create the desired level of resistance when adjusting the airflow , they have fitted a good sized o-ring, running just above the air flow slots.

 

The LYNX features dual air flow, created by four parrell slots, two on each side, each slot is approximately 15mm long by 2mm wide.

The top slots designed for Cloud chasing run directly onto the sides of the Coils, and can be adjusted by tightening down the top cap.

The lower slots, sit just below the top ones, and are channeled down the sides of the chamber and to meet up with the channeling on the build deck, to come out underneath the Coils. The bottom airflow can be engaged by simply screwing down the top cap, past the top slots. Continuing to tighten down the top cap will restrict the bottom airflow even more.

 

The lower section of the chamber has detailed machining on the side edge, to channel the bottom airflow, with notches on each side to ensure the chamber lines up correctly with the build deck.

510 & Build Deck.
The LYNX features a none adjustable 510 pin, which from from I can tell is gold plated.hich sits in the middle of the stainless steel base section. 

 

Which has the LYNX RDA branding, along with the serial number 001469, and the fact that it is manufactured Digiflavor, unusually it also has negative Post screw visible going through the base.

The deck itself is surrounded by 10mm wall which has the matching airflow channelling machined into it, which measures 14mm wide, which runs down each side to the air flow slots.

 

These airflow slots sit just above two fat o-rings, which keep the chamber tightly in place, if not a little to tight. (It was virtually impossible to get apart when it came out of the box, had to push down inside with my thumb and pull down at the same time to separate them) which are defiantly worth juicing up before you put it back together.

The 20mm build deck is base around two 'T' shaped sprung loaded clamps, which have good sized cross head screws on top. 

 

The 'T' shaped clamps have raised lips on either side to ensure that your Coils stay in place during your build.

 

The 'T' clamps will allow you to stick some massive builds in, and will accommodate flat ribbon wire with no issue.

The air flow runs up through two opposing 5mm tides that run up directly under each coil, raised nicely up off the deck, leaving a juice well that will hold a full 2ml of juice, with no issues of flooding.

 

Aesthetics & Build Quality
The LYNX has a real uncluttered classic design, with clean sharp lines to it. With the centre air flow gap adding to the overall Classic look.

 

I was impressed with the build quality, all the threading is butter smooth, with no issues of cross threading, the o-ring press fit connections are tight, but do loosen over time with juicing.

The build deck is very clean, with a high grade matching, with clamp style Post working perfectly every time, with no backing off.

The airflow system is very cleverly thought out and designed, although I did find the chamber a little awkward to start with, and found removing the top cap helped.

The Digiflavor LYNX RDA build.
To start with you simply need to need to remove the chamber and screw the RDA base section onto your ohm meter.

  
 

Due to the spacing of the clamps, I found it easier to dry fit the coil, and bend them to shape before attempting to install them, by simply lining up the tails above the clamp.

 

With the coil tail already angled to fit, you can simply back off the clamps and slide them into place, holding them in place with your finger a thumb, and tightening the clamps back down.

 

Then it's a matter of straightening out the Coils to ensure they are level, and lifted up off the airflow pipes, to prevent any shorts. I set mine level with the top of the clamps, to maximise flavour.

 

Then cut two 5mm strips of organic cotton, and threaded them loosely through the Coils.

 

I then trimmed the cotton level with the base of the build deck, then tucked them down loosely next to the airflow tubes.

 

Then your ready to juice up the cotton, and pulse the Coils to draw in the Juice.

 

Once you have fully juiced the cotton, and filled up the juice well with the 2ml of juice. (I found that one full dropper is just about right) you can carefully line up the chamber section, and press it into place.

 

The top cap can then be threaded down, and your chosen airflow set. And your ready to Vape.

 

Real World Performance 
The LYNX was super simple to build on and set up, and the performance and flavour, is up there with some of the best RDA's I have reviewed, very impressive. With the dual airflow set, this thing throughs out massive clouds (depending on coil and mod settings), and is a cloud chasers dream, combined with the fact that you can fill up with 2ml of juice.

 

Switching over to flavour mode, and winding down the top cap, and shutting off the top slot, this RDA transforms from a cloud maker to a flavour machine, with the air-flow running directly up under the Coils, the flavour seems to to be instantly enhanced, and intensified.  

Even in flavour mode, the wide bottom feed air-flow slots, this RDA still manages to produce an impressive amount of dense flavourfull vapor.

I have had absolutely no leakage, and with the set up of the airflow, I would say it is impossible for the Juice to leak out, unless you put it upside down in your pocket, and even then the clever design of the Drip Tip lip in the top cap, will hold most of it back. To be sure though I would recommend screwing down the top cap when transporting.

Re-filling is a breeze, I found that a dropper full of juice dumped in through the drip Tip, was the perfect amount of juice, obviously if you over fill the juice well, you will get juice overflowing into the airflow tubes, and you get the gurgles.

 

Conclusion.
Digiflavour have managed to design and build a really stand out RDA, which in today's crowded market is no small achievement. The ability to simple switch between clouds and flavours is Ingenious and works a treat. Today vapors are becoming more and more demanding in their search for Vaping perfection, and this RDA ticks many of the boxes, massive clouds, great flavour, easy to build and leak proof.

I'm not sure what I would do to improve this RDA, possibly make the chamber attach to the base via threading rather than press fit, more like the pharaoh, to avoid having to line up the notches. And secondly some kind on ballbearing notch/click system, as the top cap reaches the air flow slots, to hold you chosen setting, as I feel over time it may become a little loose.

Apart from those minor ideas for improvement, the LYNX RDA is a stunning atomiser, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

The Digiflavor LYNX RDA can be purchased from Heaven Gifts for £28.76, plus use Discount code AMVRDISCOUNT to get an extra 15% off your purchase.
