Video Transcript: Herakles III 25 Mesh Edition - Sense Finally Has a Mesh Coil! by Suck My Mod
Welcome back to the channel guys. I am Matt. Today, we're gonna check out a new tank from Sense. This is one that I've been quite excited to try out. This is the Sense Herakles III 25 which we've already seen and has been out for a few months, but this is their new mesh coil version. Now, if you do already have the Herakles III, this coil also fit in some of their other tanks as well. You can just buy the coils themselves. You don't have to buy this tank by itself. But I've always been a big fan of Sense's Sub-Ohm Tanks. And as you guys know, I'm a fan of mesh coils. So I've definitely been looking forward to this one.
Now, with the packaging, it's pretty much your classic Sense packaging. We've seen this before from them. You pull this open. Inside, you are gonna have your tank, an extra coil head. This little adaptor here, we'll get more into that. Then you have some extra spares, different colored O-rings, if you don't like the ones installed, and then a straight piece of glass.
Now, obviously like the previous Herakles 25, it's 25 mm in diameter, does have this piece of bubble glass here, with the bubble glass installed, this does hold 8 mL of liquid, it's a pretty hefty filling tank. I'm assuming this is gonna come in different colors, but I only got a few stainless steel versions, airflow ring on the bottom here, copper 510 pin. Don't use that on mech mods. It doesn't protrude out. I would just, like I've said in the past, I wouldn't suggest using most sub-ohm tanks on mech mods. It comes with this little tip here which is basically a sleeve and then this piece right here we'll unscrew. But then, if you wanna use your own tips, you screw this guy on. And that is for 510s.
So unfortunately, it doesn't hold an 810 or anything like that, but you do have an option to use your own 510s or this sleeve style tip that they provided. They look a lot like the previous 510s that Sense has made. But instead of this being a 510, it's just a sleeve, definitely looks to have a wider diameter than some of the past ones as well, the inner diameter. So just have that same cool Sense top fill system. You just pull over and you fill right in there, you push it down, you close, easy as that.
Now, this whole assembly can unscrew. You can pop your glass out like that. In order to get to the coil head though, you gotta unscrew this piece right here and then there is your mesh coil head. Now, like a lot of the other mesh coil heads, this is 0.15, 40 to 100 watts. We've seen this shape of coil head used in a lot of systems in the past. So if you have some of the other Sense tanks, this should work, and they're just fine. I think some of the previous Herakles use this. Also some of their others, the Arrow kit has this, the V-Jet, I believe, has this same shape and I think there's other brands that also use this same shape to where this could be compatible.
I like what they did here. They just included a second mesh coil head. Honestly, when these mesh tanks come out, almost all the mesh coil heads I've used so far from different manufacturers have been pretty good and I don't even use the other coils they come with. So, Sense smartened up and just included two mesh coil heads. So when you are using a brand new coil head, go through the normal routine, just go ahead and juice that up a bit. I always tend to put a little too much, but that's okay. And then we can screw this piece on right here. Or when you take the tank section apart, you can try to just take this base off. I'll show you that in a second. Let's put it on with the bubble glass.
So, obviously, if you wanna do, just get to your coil head section, you'd wanna try to hold on to this and not unscrew the whole thing. And you should be able to pop this out with a tank full of juice in it still and get to your coil head that way. Now let's go to fill it. I believe with the straight glass, it's gonna be around that four-and-a-half, five range. I've got it all the way filled up. Let's close it. And there it is. Just as a size comparison, here is a Falcon, so obviously gonna be quite a bit taller, holds quite a bit more juice. Let's go ahead and pop this onto a mod. This is the proton, doesn't hangover. I mean it definitely looks larger than some other tanks because of its height. They need a little extra height because of this fill system and obviously it's 25 mm, with this big bubble tank on top. But I don't think it looks too bad.
Alright, so let's go ahead, go back up top, vape this and talk about it. Okay, here I have the Herakles III mesh on the proton, I have it at 75 watts, it's reading 0.14. Let's go ahead and vape it. Airflow is wide open. Alright, now, like some of the other mesh tanks, I do usually like to close the airflow down, just a hair, maybe a third or so. As far as draw goes on this, comparing it to the Falcon, which is one of the most popular mesh tanks right now, the Herakles III just feels slightly more restricted.
So, we'll make this kind of quick 'cause I've already reviewed the Herakles III. First off, like I said, 8 mL with the bubble tank, it is 5 mL I checked with the straight tank. As far as cons go on this, it's big. It's a bigger tank, that some people aren't gonna mind that, some people will. It's definitely taller than a lot of the others. Part of that has to do with the top fill assembly, which I love. It's one of the easiest top fill assemblies with sub-ohm tanks that we've ever seen. They came out with this what, a year or two ago, this top fill system, and it's still fantastic.
Flavor is good. I found that with this, I run it about 5 watts higher than some of the other mesh sub-ohm tanks just to get the same kind of warmth that I want. I think that that is maybe because you have a little more distance to travel between the coil head and the mouthpiece. I mean it's not much but you have definitely 3-4 more millimeters I would say. Well, where would the coil sit on this? Yeah, maybe more, maybe five. And so I found that to get the kind of flavor and warmth that I want, I turned it up a little bit higher on this. As far as size does go, it's a good fit with bigger mods. I mean here it is on the proton. There is no hangover or anything. I think it'd be a good fit for a mod like the Aegis Legend.
I think the Aegis Legend looks kind of funny with the stock tank it comes with 'cause it's so short. With this one, it actually is a pretty nice fit. As far as other cons go, they're still not using 810 drip tips. I think that that's a con at this point, at least to have an 810 of some sort and then a 510 drip tip adaptor. This tip, the sleeve tip, definitely has a wider bore than some of their past 510 tips though.
There's not a lot of other cons. It's basically the same kind of cons that you would have with the Herakles III except for I think that this has even better coil heads because they're mesh. The coil heads are fantastic like all the others. I've been using my other one in this for about four days now, and it's just no letup in sight. Like I've said in past mesh videos, the one issue that I found with a lot of mesh coils whether it be the Falcons, whether it be SMOKs, and a few others. After a while, I would say close to a week or so, you can find that it can be overwicking.
Which is kind of the opposite of conventional coil heads. A lot of times those will get burnt and they won't wick as well. But with the mesh, I found that sometimes it can overwick. I haven't found that yet with this one, but it wouldn't shock me if that happens. So, I guess, who's this for? If you're already a Herakles III user or you have a lot of tanks that can take this type of coil head, the Herakles style, the V-Jet style, then this would be one to check out. If you don't have a Herakles III yet, but you like Sense products and you love this fill system, this would be one to check out.
But really what it's coming down to with a lot of these coil heads, the mesh coil heads, is they're all pretty good, so it comes down to brand loyalty and what tanks do you already have so you can use those coil heads in multiple different tanks because mesh is where it's at, with sub-ohm tanks now. There's no doubt about it. Honestly, I haven't used a non-mesh coil head for quite a while. In my spare time, at least, there might have been times where I've been testing something or whatever, but when I just want a sub-ohm tank for my own use, it's not about testing for review or whatever. I'm going with the mesh every time. And this will definitely be one I continue to use, especially when I want something with a high, high liquid capacity, love the 8 mL capacity. I mean it's gonna last you a good long time.
Probably it won't last you all day if you're a heavy user because you're using it on a high wattage, you're getting a lot of vapor out of it, but you could definitely tell the difference between this and a 5 mL tank. So really, when we come down to comparisons, is this better or is this better or is this better, like I've said before, most of the mesh coil heads are very, very similar. Most of them use close to the same amount of mesh, they have close to the same amount of resistance, they all have wicked really well, they all definitely last longer than most conventional coil heads, and so mesh is definitely where it's at, in the future, when it comes to sub-ohm tanks.
So I don't think you can buy this yet, but it should be for sale shortly. Like I said, if you already have the original Herakles III, you could just buy these coil heads and pop them in. I'm sure all the big retailers will have them or if you have a V-Jet tank or one of the others that takes the size of coil heads, you could just buy the coil heads. But if you don't have any and you want a big tank that holds a lot of liquid, I can highly recommend it for sure. And a huge pro with this, like I said, is that fill method. Still my favorite fill method when it comes to sub-ohm tanks.
Alright, I think that's about it, guys. Don't forget to check out our other channel, Matt & V. That about wraps it up until next time. Thanks for watching, suck my mod.
