Review: Melo 6 – Eleaf

The Melo by Eleaf is a truly classic clearomizer in the world of vaping, and one of the Chinese manufacturer’s flagship products. Version 6 is designed for direct inhalation from 0.15 to 0.3 ohm. It’s simple to use, works rather well and holds a good 5 ml.


The Melo big clouds made easy

The Melo 6 is not going to revolutionise the world of DL clearomizers. But it’s easy to use and delivers pretty decent vapour. Even so, there are a few things we’d change to make it even more enjoyable to use.

A DL clearomizer

The Melo 6 is a great size. At 25 mm in diameter, you need a box that can accommodate it. The large diameter and the factory-fitted bubble tank look really impressive. To make the most of it, use a dual battery box that can deliver the long vaping sessions you want.

The 810 drip tip has an inside diameter of 12 mm, making it big enough and better suited to the 0.15 ohm coil. When we tried it with the 0.3 ohm coil, the mouthpiece felt very wide and it made a huge amount of vapour. We’d have preferred a second, smaller drip tip. To fill the 5 ml tank, slide the top cap off (the upper part of the clearomizer). It’s easy, just press down on the arrow icon. Most bottle tips will fit, but steer clear of the biggest ones.

The Melo 6 uses top airflow through the two air inlets. There’s one on each side of the clearomizer. A rotating ring adjusts the air intake to cool the coil. It’s very easy to adjust, but won’t move by itself. The notched ring just above the airflow ring doesn’t do anything in particular, but it doesn’t make it easier to grip either.

When the glass tank is off, you can see the huge e-liquid inlets for feeding the coil. This feed runs the entire length of the Melo 6 so you van vape down to the last drop without getting a dry hit.

The coil fits into the base of the clearomizer. Screw it into the centre of the Melo 6, then replace the tank to close it. It’s a given that top airflow systems mean no leaks.

The Melo 6 comes with two coils: the 0.15 ohm EC-A is for use between 40 and 70 W, and the 0.3 ohm EC-A is for power levels from 30 to 50 W and direct inhalation only.

Both coils worked well during vaping. To live up to its promises, the 0.3 ohm coil needs some serious restriction and at least 45 W of power. The airflow has to be fully open underneath, and the flavours are duller and weaker.

The 0.15 ohm coil is a better bet in our view, because it’s better suited to a bigger air intake. The flavours were good at 70 W and with the air intakes completely open. Restricting the airflow a little makes the flavours deeper and the vapour hotter, which is perfect for gourmet e-liquids.


What we like

  • Level of finish
  • Flavours
  • Easy to use
  • No leaks

What we don’t like

  • Drip tip is too big for the 0.3 ohm coil
  • Needs serious restriction when using the 0.3 ohm coil

Self-taught and curious by nature, I developed my journalistic skills in the field by joining the Vaping Post in 2017. As a former smoker who converted to vaping, I immediately felt the need to understand in detail all aspects of this smoking risk reduction method that has enabled me to successfully quit smoking where previous methods had failed.
review-melo-6-eleafThe Melo 6 is an enjoyable clearomizer designed for direct inhalation. It’s better suited to power levels over 50 W, and works much better with the 0.15 ohm coil than the 0.3 ohm one. Simple and easy to use, it is totally leak-proof. The drip tip is a bit wide to use for a restrictive draw.
