Vaporesso has really made a name for themselves, especially over the past couple of years. Quite a few of their products, be it vaporisors or individual tanks, have helped numerous smokers switch to this less harmful alternative. I can’t help but feel this particular device will follow suite.

My Thoughts

Firstly, this is really a nice device, and performs very well on either coil. I prefer a more mild MTL vape with 30-35 watts being a maximum, so I use the 0.3 ohm coils. Some smokers looking to switch have told me they find this to be a tad too powerful, producing more vapour than desired.

In terms of the screen, for me, there’s too much going on – I mean really, who needs a puff counter? All I need displayed is power-resistance and current battery charge.

This is certainly up there with the best Pod systems and AIO Pods around, I only hope they offer a more suitable MTL coil down the road. This may not be the perfect fit for all MTL lovers, but again, the 0.3 Ohm coil, and the Air Flow Control closes half way at least, is somewhat restrictive.

One issue with a number of Pod systems is the build up of condensation and or leaking onto the contact area under the pod. I have noticed some from time to time and with any pod system, one should wipe up any liquid each time the unit is filled.

Pros

Nice build quality
Very good performance
Good flavour
Easy to fill
