The arc Impact is the seventh instalment in the esteemed arc Family and it could be the best one yet. It's designed to provide a tailored, adjustable vaping experience in the most user-friendly format. From the look and feel, to the performance and reliability, this kit really does have it all.
Appearance of the arc Impact
The impact somewhat breaks the arc mould in terms of design. The fundamental shape of the arc range remains but the final touches are tweaked and updated to give it a touch of class. The body features a soft-touch surround, adding comfort in the hand, while maintaining a contemporary look. There are four colour options available which are Aqua Green, Jet Black, Hot Pink and Ocean Mist.
The popular box style shape is small enough to fit in your pocket but large enough to accommodate a generous battery capacity. Chrome plating on the buttons, intricate stitching and an expertly embossed logo finishes the kit off nicely. All of this comes together exquisitely to create a very contemporary-looking device.
The arc Impact has a built-in 2600mAh battery. The length of time between charges will depend on vaping style, power settings and atomizer head resistance. However, this battery will last the vast majority of vapers at least one full day of vaping before it needs recharging.
Once the battery runs out it is recharged quickly thanks to USB-C charging. Remember to use a suitable wall plug when charging your e-cig. This mid-range battery capacity has proven to be a popular option for arc vapers. Whilst we would all love an everlasting battery on our e-cig, a large battery means other areas have to compromise. For example, the price will rise and the size of the kit will increase. However, if you do require a large battery, the arc Evo will fit the bill.
Ease of use
The simplicity of the arc Impact is where this kit really excels. The filling mechanism, atomizer head changes and settings adjustment are all hassle-free. The tank is a pod-style cartridge which fits into a 510 base. It is refilled easily by sliding the top cap across to reveal the filling port.
The atomizer heads use a push fit connection. This makes changes much quicker and cleaner than screw-ins and means no compromise to quality. This is the first arc to feature push fit atomizer heads which supports the general shift to much more user-friendly e-cigarettes.
Performance of the arc Impact
High performance is synonymous with all products in the arc range and the Impact is no different. It has numerous features which allow you to tailor the experience without featuring unnecessary gimmicks. Up to 40 watts of power, adjustable airflow and a 510 tank connection give versatility to the kit.
The GTL atomizer heads provide impressive flavour and vapour production. This GTL range also features in the Tornado GTL, a pen-style kit which gained instant popularity earlier this year. They provide a really clean flavour and maintain a good lifespan. The 1.2ohm version which is included is ideal for mouth to lung vaping but if you prefer slightly more power, the 0.8ohm and 0.4ohm types will also work brilliantly in the arc Impact.
Overall, this kit really is a thing to behold. It continues that renowned arc theme of reliability and versatility, while adding the latest developments to make it arguably the most user-friendly of all the arcs. At £44.99, it delivers good value for money as its one of those e-cigs you will keep for years to come. Expect the arc Impact to follow in the footsteps of the arc 5 as a mainstay in the Totally Wicked range!
