One of the newest additions to the IGO family from Youde! This unit has 5 posts and is designed for dual and quad coils! The deck has 4 air slits in the side that aligns with the 4 air slits in the top cap for quad coil builds or for extra airflow when using dual coils. If you choose to build dual coils the top cap has 2 pairs of holes that align with 2 air slits on the deck.

The igo w3 is sleek and makes dual or quad coils a breeze to build. The well isn't prohibitively deep and I find it very easy to line up and tighten down my coils. No drilling of airholes is necessary with the adjustable ring. With it fully opened up its like breathing in normally - full lung hits are no problem. And if you like a tight, dense draw that's possible too. It also looks great with the Titan #5 drip tip available here.

This thing is a monster after you do a few builds to get your coils just right and then a few more to get a good wicking setup on it that still gives good flavor and density. Ended up running quad 24ga micros at 0.2ohms with a soft cotton cloud under the coils and close to the center post, cotton through the coils, and a light layer of cotton on top that added some great density ande flavor. getting the 24ga to go quad was a pain though since the center post will not fit 4 strands of 24 through it. I ended up having to clip them to just the right lenght for all 4 to be inserted and secured. This thing is a cloud monster!

This is a killer dripping atty. The adjustable airflow was the major sell for me, opposed to other bargain drippers.
NOT really for beginners. The post layout can be a bit daunting, especially for those without skills, experience, and most of all the proper tools.
Initially my quad coil attempt with 28ga A1 Kanthal failed miserably, as the gauge is just too thick to share the positive center post. Though I suppose it could be done with more patience, planning, and a jeweler's loop. Definitely possible with thinner gauge wire. I'd recommend 32ga and up for Quad builds.
Made a .5 Ohm Triple (wtf??) and it was just too hot with 28ga, so I then settled on a dual microcoil setup clocking in at .7 Ohm. Wow! Airflow is incredible. Flavor is exquisite with an 80%VG juice. PG fails miserably in all drip atties.
Full lung inhales are comfy even at the smallest setting. Not quite possible to get a quality mouth-lung inhale, but that's not easy in Sub-Ohm builds anyhow.
The cap design acts in much the same way as the condenser cup on a Kayfun/Russian 91% does, by collecting the vapor and channeling it up into the tapered cap and on to the tip. Creates intense flavor and nice, warm vapor. This design is begging for a quad chimney setup with 32/34ga.
Sweet vape. Truly. Great even for Atty-Snobs as a throw-around or backup too. The only knock I could give it is it's lack of a single-coil airflow setting. Dual coils are as low as the W3 can go. Perhaps the well needs to recess further down into the deck, as juice can leak through the myriad airflow holes in the cap.
Sits flush on The Magneto, and the two finishes even blend nicely despite slight variation in polish levels.
Youde is the epitome of value craftsmanship, imho. Wanted to try it on my V3 Flip before reviewing, but it's delayed in the mail. Nevertheless, I'm sure it will look awesome on top, it's a must-have for any dripper.

After a few attempts to get the coils just right, this baby with knock your socks off. The airflow is so smooth and the Vapor is Clouds, the wife thought i was burning the house down when she came home. Great quality and with a bit of practice you'll love it as much as i do...
