This single-battery sub-ohm mod comes with a Cascade baby tank, a triangular airflow, and a super-fast firing speed of 0.002 seconds for thick and flavorful vape clouds every time.

With a sleek, curved design and 6 stunning colors to choose from, this vape device is as prominent on looks as it is on performance.

The Vaporesso Armour Pro: An Overview

A combination of power, portability, and performance, the Vaporesso Armour Pro delivers a smooth vaping experience with this kit. This budget-friendly vape device by the popular vaping brand, Vaporesso, re-establishes the comeback of single battery vape devices, vis-a-vis the bulkier, and heavier multi-battery setup. With a max output of 100 watts, this device can run on a 18650, 20700, or a 21700 single battery. A sub-ohm setup and triangular airflow ensure thick, flavorful vape clouds, and its cascade baby tank has a substantial capacity of 5 ml.

The kit includes the mod itself, a cascade baby tank, a GT mesh-coil, a GT ccell2, an easy to understand user guide, as well as a USB charging cable. Right off the bat, there is everything needed to set up the device. This device comes with all the important safety features expected in a mod, such as an overcharging alert and short-circuits protection.

Its updated omni board 4.0 chipset ensures a super-fast firing speed of 0.002 seconds and a 2 amp quick charging. This means instant and even heating, allowing thick and flavourful vape clouds every single time. This device has a pre-installed 0.18 ohm-GT mesh coil, which offers a great balance of a greater heating area and lots of flavors.

Moreover, its top-fill system ensures hygiene, and the tank’s isolation structure prevents burn-hits and ensures a longer-lasting coil head. A colored 0.96-inch screen and a smooth, curved design make this vape device aesthetically pleasing and easy to grip. Thanks to its 91.4 mm height, it is portable enough to be taken anywhere. Choose from a variety of 6 beautiful colors — from black, silver, white, midnight blue, green and red-blue.

What Comes in the Kit?

The kit comes packaged in an attractive cardboard box, with each component in its own slot. Each kit has the following components in it:

  • 1 x Cascade Baby Tank
  • 1 x Pre-installed 0.18-ohm GT mesh coil
  • 1 x GT CELL2 (0.3-ohms)
  • 1 x USB charging cable

Internal Building Quality And Design

The internal build and design of this device appear to be of high quality. With a colored 0.96 inch screen, curved design, and sleek build, it has a modern design with immense visual appeal. It has a sturdy build that can be felt as soon as it is gripped. It is available in 6 beautiful colors — black, white, green, red-blue, silver and midnight blue.

The Cascade Baby tank comes in black for all color variants, except for the white variant (that comes with a silver tank). Standing at a 91.4 mm height, this is a sleek, lightweight, and portable device that is easy to carry. The base has a battery door with venting and safety stamps. The device’s top has a stainless steel 510 plate with a gold-plated and spring-loaded 510.

The Battery

This device is a single-battery mod, a setup that is coming back in trend now. This makes it lightweight and portable without compromising its performance. The device can be powered by a 21700, 20700, 18650 single battery.

Fitting The Battery

While fitting the battery, there is no rattle, no matter which of the 3 types of batteries are being used. However, when the battery slot is opened, there is a movement by the battery door, though this gets resolved once the battery is fitted in place. The battery slot has the orientation sign, but it is in black-on-black, making it hard to read.

The Cascade Baby Tank

This powerful vape device is fitted with a Cascade Baby tank with a capacity of 5ml. With the same isolation structure as a full-sized tank but with a 24.5 mm diameter, it has a triangular airflow system for thick vape clouds. The drip tip is a 510 fitting.

How to Fill the Cascade Baby Tank?

The top-fill system with a locking mechanism allows for easy pouring, avoiding any spillage issues. Look out for the indicator on top of the tank, just underneath the top-cap to see where to open the tank for filling. The top section is spring-loaded, so it has to be lifted first, after which the top moves on one side to reveal the fill slot. Once the juice is filled in and placed back, then the top cap would lock in place.

Performance

This vape kit is an attractive blend of features, high performance, and portability, especially given its price point. The instant firing ability and triangular airflow ensure even and quick heating, which means thick vape production every time. It has accurate temperature control as well as wattage, voltage, and temperature curves.

The cascade baby tank, paired with the ceramic 0.3-ohm coil, brings out the flavor pretty well. The device has a good battery life and has safety features such as overcharging and short-circuit protection.

Vaporesso Armour Pro Coils

This device comes with two different types of coils — a 0.3-ohm ceramic CCell 2 coil, which is ideal for wattages between 35 to 40 watts, and a pre-fitted 0.18-ohm GT Mesh coil which is best used between 65 to 75 watts.

The GT Mesh coils increase the contact surface area on the coils, which means a thicker and more flavorful vape production. It also means relatively more even heating and a longer-lasting coil and battery life as well. The device’s tank, Cascade baby, is fully compatible with GT cores.

Flavour and Vapour Production

This device comes packed with a robust internal build that all work to ensure one thing — a thick vape cloud production that is full of flavor. This is made possible by its cascade baby sub-ohm tank, a rapid Insta-firing system of 0.002 seconds, a triangular airflow system, and the updated Omni board 4.0. All these features ensure a rapid and even heating, as well as a stable and dense flavor every time.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
