Here is a suave new twist on the “Kayfun alikes.” The Erlkonigin rebuildable atomizer clone is creeping into preorder status at a couple suppliers. Most Kayfun style atomizers are very similar with small differences to customize the vape such as increased airflow, larger capacity, or smaller size. The Erlkonigin appears to have started from the ground up with nice features which have definitely caught my attention. The name might make this atomizer a difficult conversation piece, a quick translation attempt reveals that Erlkonigin is German and means Queen.
I’m really digging the grooves on this mod. The top cap has 4 easy to handle indents to make filling quick and painless. To fill the atomizer you just rotate the cap 45 degrees and two fill holes will be revealed. This sounds like a nice change from the sometimes tedious screwing some atomizers require. There are also more grooves surrounding the 510 connector to make removing the bottom easier as well. The tank has no threading and is held in place by the chimney, much like the Fogger’s design.
Everything looks so smooth, the finish looks great
The drip tips for this mod are proprietary, but there is an adapter to allow any drip tip to work. The deck has two nicely elevated posts and the way the wick channel lines up makes building seem very easy on this atomizer. The original Erlkonigin ships with a variety of tanks that adjust the capacity from 6ml to 8ml. For an atomizer that is only slightly larger than a Kayfun (4.5ml,) I am very impressed. I like the way the deck and bottom are designed. The grooved and bottom fed air control are a nice change from the flat and bland bottoms that most atomizers have. The bottom is also very thin, it looks like this atomizer really shines in space management.
Designed for a single coil, but is supposed to have the airiest draw of all
I have suspicions that this clone is made by Yiloong, the makers of the Fogger. Their Alibaba page has a listing for the Erlkonigin with all the accessories that the original shipped with, this listing says it only includes the plastic drip tip and 6ml tank. For now this atomizer is only available as a preorder, and as per usual I suspect the prices will drop once more suppliers stock up. I am very excited to try this atomizer out myself, and I hope it is sooner than later. Here is what the suppliers site says about it:
6ml Co-Polymer Tank
Easy Fill Top Cap by twisting 45 degrees to expose a filling hole.
Intergrated AFC in the base
Direct Positive Pole Connector
Standard 510 threading
Proprietarythreaded plasticdrip tip.
Tank is not a structural element. Chimney attached to the top cap to give the unitmore strength.
Innovative Wick Guide (Channels) which allows the tank to be vaped completely before the need to refill.
I try to stop posting about Kayfun clones, but I can’t help myself. With an even longer name than before the Kayfun has been enhanced once again. This new version is a variation of the Kayfun Lite Plus v2, but now there are 2 AFC’s to allow an even airier draw than before. I can see a ton of ways this can improve the latest Kayfun and I will be looking into getting one of these for myself.
There’s no way to show the dual air intakes in one image, but you can see the control screws here.
This version of the Kayfun Lite Plus looks like it has the classic top cap, and not the nano design that has been making the rounds. I always tried to get a proper dual coil in my Kayfuns, but it never really had the air/juice flow to accommodate the lower sub ohm coils. From the looks of the deck this version should have enough air flow despite the regular looking 510 pin. With sufficient air flow the last concern would be the wicking. When I first saw this listing I was hoping to see 4 juice channels at the deck, but this has the standard 2 channel layout. That does not mean dual coils are impossible, all you have to do is put a one sided wick into each well.
The only picture of the deck I could find
One of the vapers I was chatting with ran into a very interesting problem with a KFL+ that I wanted to point out. This involved a KFL+ and a Stingray. The AFC screw from the KFL+ was very loose when it was threaded onto the mod. The screw somehow loosened further at one point and locked the RBA onto the mod. So take a fair warning and either keep the AFC screw considerably recessed into the RBA or remove it, especially if the mod has a crown.
Don’t forget to use coupon code “reddit10” to bring the price to $40.50.

Things are definitely getting interesting. There are so many spin offs of the Kayfun clones that they are becoming difficult to track. Here we have the latest version of the Kayfun Lite Plus, but now in blue. Following the same path as the Nemesis tube clones, the Kayfun looks like it will become available in more and more colors. Performance wise this is considered to be the latest and greatest of Kayfun clones, and now it has a beautiful blue finish to add some variety to the mix.
EHPro is known for making the first, and the highest quality Kayfun clones
The names for these atomizers just keeps getting longer and longer. I remember when there was just the Kayfun, then there was lite, now we have a whole story to tell in just saying the name of an evolved RBA. To break it down, this is the Plus version of the Kayfun Lite, which means the air flow control is going to be on the bottom of the atomizer. Being the EHPro v2 Kayfun lite means this RBA has an enlarged air intake. I really want to get a v2 for myself, because I’ve grown to like a very airy draw, and if the draw is too airy, you can always dial it down with the AFC. Much like the Svoe Mesto KFL this RBA has the new drip tip, which has two o-rings for added stability. The 510 connector ping is also adjustable so users attempting to use this mod with a hybrid adapter will be very happy.
The deck is unpainted, just the way I’d prefer.
The price for the EHPro Kayfuns has always been a bit higher than the alternatives from the Chinese suppliers. EHPro doesn’t supply the Chinese sites, so it is unlikely to get a better price overseas. For your money you get all the main accessories. Nicely camouflaged in the back of the photo you can see the clear tanks both the section and the full M tank. Hopefully this is opening doors for the future when we can mix and match parts and everyone will have their own unique atomizer and RBA. Most importantly this version has red o-orings, which outperform black o-rings according to the league of professional grade cloud contestants. Please don’t sue me.
I got a few more details and a new lower price for this massive RBA. This is the first of many 28.5mm RBA’s we will see in the new future and it is very nice to see the price is the same as the 22mm counterpart. More suppliers are offering preorders for this atomizer, and I’d assume this is as low as the price will get from a U.S. vendor.
Big atomizers give big flavor
The estimated capacity for this atomizer has grown. I previously stated that it is around 8.5mm, this vendor says it is over 10ml. The clear tank is also included. It is not very descriptive but I would assume they mean the window section, and not a whole 1 piece clear tank. The drip tip is interchangeable with a standard o-ring design.
Probably the most recommended rebuildable atomizer right now is the Kayfun Lite Plus. Here we have a second version of the clone complete with all the trimmings to make purchasing a Kayfun a breeze while allowing some variation in your tank design. The Kayfun Lite Plus has been expanding its product offerings vastly in the past few weeks and we’ve seen everything from gold, copper and black in variations of versions 1,2 and 3. Here is the standard old stainless steel edition with the improvements of the newer designs we’ve seen as of late.
The Nano kit alongside the full size, both included.
I keep telling myself that I have more Kayfuns than anyone could need, but one more wouldn’t kill me, right? The Kayfun design is famous for its ease of use, manageable design, and cool flavorful vape. This design has expanded the air flow hole and provided the newer drip tip design complete with dual o-rings for stability. I am a big fan of the recessed fill hole in the “Plus” versions of the Kayfun and it is not supposed to suffer from the Kayfun leak of previous models. My only visible complaint up front is that the deck screws might be a bit on the small side, but that can be easily remedied with some spare parts if you have any laying around. I expect there will be a stripped down version of this offer for less in the near future, but don’t be surprised if this one ends up backordered.
They couldn’t even fit it all in one picture!
Here is what the site says about it:
It is the updated version of the Kayfun Lite Plus
Standard 510 drip tip
Stainless steel 510 contact pin
Bottom screw fill-hole
With 1 air hole, 1 screw on the bottom to control the air flow
At one point 14500 mods were discussed regularly. They seem to have been buried by all the hype for DNA30’s and 26650 mods lately. Well this might bring them back into the spotlight. For the vaper who favors a thin 14mm pen-like atomizer there is the Kayfun 2.1 clone. The original Kayfun 2.1 has been around for some time, but the high price and lack of availability has driven the RBA into obscurity. I’ve seen some vendors even list the 2.1 as discontinued, so a clone might be the only way to get one.
For those Ego addicts and 14500 fans.
This mod has a lot of parts. You get 3 tank tank sections and two chimneys for adjustable capacity. In regular mode this atomizer holds roughly 3ml and up to 5ml in extended mode. The signature Kayfun building deck lies inside this slender RBA. The construction is very much like a slimmed down Kayfun 3.1. The knurling on the top cap is a nice touch, sometimes it can be a little tough to open the top of my Kayfuns, especially once I get some juice on my hands. This RBA also uses a standard drip tip, so your collection will not go to waste.
Standard mode without the window. For those capacity psychics.
There are two different vendors listing this atomizer so far. The less expensive option is $26.99 from a new up and coming Chinese site and lists Ivogo as the maker. The alternative is roughly $30 and comes from a US shop with the maker Tobeco. Both should ship at about the same time.
The Kayfun design is evolving. While many of the cloners have already been making multiple versions of the famous RBA, they have all been variations of the original. Now we have a new twist on the new Kayfun lite + clones.
These would nicely compliment colored Nemesis tubes.
I know there are many vapors out there looking for a brass colored Kayfun to match their handful of brass mods, gold plating might be close enough. The Kayfun lite + is considered by many to be one of, if not the best RBA’s available. There are all the old features of the Kayfun lite, but with a few minor changes to the design. The most noticeable of the changes is the recessed fill hole in the bottom. This should take care of the leaking issues some users were getting with the Kayfun Lite or the Russian. Also the air flow control screw has been placed on the underneath as well. Personally I would remove the screw all together since I prefer a more airy vape.
Nicely done EHPro
I think Eciggity should be mentioned for the way they run their site. The Eciggity site is one of the nicest in the industry. Some other vendors could learn a bit from them. Each product is clearly labeled with the maker’s name right in the title. There are numerous large photos for each product. Each product has its own unique description laid out by the staff, rather than just a copy of the Alibaba blurb. All of these site features take the mystery out of ordering vaping gear online and really helps consumers like me who don’t have a local B&M store. Keep it up!
I almost want both, decisions, decisions
Currently the black version is in stock, and the gold version is at a preorder. Both versions include the M tank, the clear short tank and the steel tank.
