Fatality M25 from QP Design: A Review

I’d been looking forward to the release of the Fatality M25 for a while. In part because I missed out on the original Fatality that quickly became a cult classic and sold out in short order, in part because I like QP Design for the attention that they put into design and quality control. I have not been disappointed. The M25 is a great RTA and became a regular in my rotation upon trying it. Bonus that it’s 25 mm so it fits most of my mech collection perfectly.

The first thing I’d say about the M25 is that the deck is a dream to build on. Plenty of space, nice big flathead screws, it’s fast and easy to install coils or change out cotton. The space between centerlines of the post holes is 8.5mm and the space between the two sets of posts is 7.3mm. Loads of room for bigger coils with no trouble at all. Below I have a couple of 3mm Aliens (coming in at 0.12 Ohms) and you can see that they’re not crowded at all.

Wicking is also pretty easy and straightforward. You can see the wick well is pretty spacious with large openings for juice to get from the tank to the wick. I like to trim my wicks at the width of the RTA, then comb them out and just snip off any excess from the combing. Tucking them in the wick well is pretty easy since there is so much room. I haven’t had any issues with leaking at all, a definite plus as that’s not always a given with tanks. I also really like that the kidney shaped juice holes are pretty massive so there’s no chance of making a mess when juicing up. The tank will hold up to 4 ml with the standard glass and 5.5 ml with the bubble glass.

The airflow is another definite plus with the M25. The atomizer features both bottom and side airflow, which are controlled independently from each other. This allows you to dial in the perfect airflow for your own preferences. Personally, I like keeping the bottom airflow ring (controls air under the coils) wide open and the top ring (controls air hitting the side of the coils) about half open with the Aliens I have installed which gives me a really nice flavourful DTL vape.

I’ve been asked a few times to rate the M25 and Isolation Tank against each other. Honestly, I like them both and wouldn’t trade one for the other. The Isolation Tank is obviously bigger (26mm) but accommodates the same amount of juice (4 ml with standard glass). The Isolation Tank also has the option of the engraved metal tube but the M25 isn’t hurting in the looks department either- they’re simply a different look. Both feature great decks to build on. The airflow on the Isolation Tank is a bit looser at wide open but the M25 has great airflow and I really like the bottom and side airflow control. So I can’t make a call between these two. You can check out Brandee’s review of the Isolation Tank and maybe that will help you to decide between them. Honestly, I’d buy them both for different reasons but I’d definitely want both in my collection.

In summary, as if it wasn’t obvious, I highly recommend the M25. It’s a great RTA, comes with lots of the standard extras in the goodie bag including a 5.5ml glass bubble tank, the quality that QP Design is known for, and it’s 25mm making it the perfect fit for my fellow mech-heads.
