As you may have noticed from my recent reviews there appears to be a change in direction away from clouds with more of an emphasis towards flavour, which I’m sure many of you like myself will find appealing.
Improved airflow, as well as a reduction in height between the coils surface area and the drip tip, are all contributing to a far more satisfying and flavoursome vaping experience.
Plus, a move towards top airflow designs, which I have been advocating for in my reviews over the past two years, should finally remove any issues with leaking.
Freemax has attempted to go one step further in the hope of increasing the flavour production and reducing the build-up of heat by introducing ceramic coils into their latest design the Starre Pure Tank.
They have also chosen to use a top filling system, making what had become a tedious practice so much easier and far more practical. And If you have a preference for clouds they have you covered for this style of vaping too, with wide top airflow inlets.
So, what’s in the box and how does it perform compared to the competition? Let’s take a look and see.
The Freemax comes in a sealed plastic container with an outer cover that includes the following:
1 x FreeMax Starre Pure
1 x Ceramic Cover 0.25Ω Coil (Pre-Installed) Rated Between 20W-70W
1 x Ceramic Cover 0.5Ω Coil Rated Between 20W-50W
1 x Glass Tube
7 x Spare O-Rings
1 x User Manual

316 Stainless Steel Construction
Insulated Drip Tip (Delrin Insulated)
Top Airflow Control Design
Top Fill Design
4.0ml Tank Capacity
Dimensions: Width: 25mm Height 64.3mm
Ceramic Coil Cover Includes Organic Japanese Cotton.
For the purpose of conducting this review, I have used a selection of different E-Liquids with varying PG/VG combinations from Electric Lotus and Pour House. I have also used the latest SMOK G-Priv 220W device to test it on as well.
E-Liquids may contain Diacetyl (DA) and acetyl Propionyl (AP) or other carcinogenic ingredients or disease-causing substances, so please be aware of this and seek medical advice before using any of the products used in my reviews.
People can suffer from allergies to chemicals that may be present in the makeup of certain types of E-liquids or produced in their vapour. People can become sensitive to, or even allergic to, Nickel or Titanium used in Temperature Controlled designed coils.
Once again, please be aware of this and seek medical advice before using any of the products used in my reviews. Also, check with your E-liquid supplier or the equipment manufacturers directly before purchase and use.
You might find this range of calculators provided by Steam Engine particularly useful, so thank you to Lars for allowing me to include them in my reviews. These calculators are currently under development, and the information that they contain may change at any time without notice. Please read the How It Works section for a more in-depth understanding.
A high-performance atomizer with a low maintenance construction requiring little effort on the part of the user to operate it.
Firstly, unscrew the base section from the main body and prime the coil by adding some E-Liquid to the Organic Cotton which can be found inside the outer ceramic casing and then replace it.
The Starre Pure comes with a 0.25Ω Coil Pre-Installed but this can be changed by unscrewing it from the base and inserting the included 0.50Ω Coil if you prefer.
Next, remove the top cap by turning it in a counter-clockwise motion just above the airflow control ring and below the 510-drip tip. You will see two wide channels on opposite sides that directly feed into the 4ml tank. Use either one to fill it with E-Liquid.
Replace the top cap and attach the tank to your device via the silver plated non-adjustable 510 pin and leave the E-Liquid to stand for a few minutes prior to use.
And finally, make sure you have opened the airflow control ring sufficiently for the wattage you have selected to vape at.
The Freemax Starre Pure sub-ohm tank is not only well constructed but very simple and straight forward to operate!
Freemax has created a name for themselves amongst cloud enthusiasts since their inception, but it now appears that they have the flavour chaser in their sights as well.
The drip tip is comfortable to use and has Teflon insulation on the inside with stainless steel outer casing to help reduce the build-up of heat generated at higher temperature settings.
It’s great to see another leading Company moving away from a bottom airflow design and installing it instead at the top.
A top airflow system helps, as we know, in reducing the possibility of leaking liquids but does not reduce the amount of air required to produce mega clouds, thanks to the two wide gauge air inlets and very good internal air circulation throughout.
This allows for air to flow down the outside of the chimney and into the large air intakes positioned beneath the coil head, passing through the center of it and up into the wide diameter chimney positioned directly above.
When you combine the airflow with the two large juice inlets that have been included you will understand why the latest Starre Pure from Freemax not only maintains its reputation for huge cloud production but also the ability to wick high VG liquids without any signs of dry hitting even on the coils recommended highest settings.
Their R&D team has also taken advantage of this latest design to include a top fill system into the Starre Pure which requires little effort in filling up the 4ml capacity tank thanks to the wide fill ports situated diagonally on either side and of course, no leaking of the E-Liquid whatsoever!
The use of a ceramic coil cover surrounding the kanthal dual vertical coil definitely helps with thermal containment cooling the vapour down at higher temperature settings.
Freemax state that the longevity of the coil is also greatly increased and I would tend to agree with this but not necessarily to the extent that they claim?
Build quality as we have come to expect from Freemax is of a very high standard and is reflected in its overall construction. Good quality machining on all parts and easy maintenance makes this one of the best in its class at this present moment in time.
The base unit allows for quick and easy access to change your coils once again displaying the quality of the threading and machining which can be found on any part of this atomizer. The one downside to this part is a non-adjustable silver plated 510 pin.
I hope this can be addressed on future models along with an RTA section included in the package.
So, to sum up, the Starre Pure from Freemax for you, It’s an excellent sub ohm tank offering improved flavour performance in a leak-proof design that does not come up short on cloud production either!
