The Univapo Kipo pod is an excellent new product that has the potential to be one of this brand’s top performers. This overview gives a detailed rundown on all this device’s features and rates the flavor production from the coils so that readers can make an informed decision when they go to purchase this new pod vape.

Univapo Kipo Pod Kit Review

The Kipo by Univapo is an excellent pod mod to get because it has several features that will appeal to people who want an ergonomic pod mod that packs a lot of flavor. The build and design are such that it is comfortable and lightweight, and it comes with two pods that are equally well designed.

Plus, it has a powerful battery that charges very quickly. Also, at $22.99, it is selling for a pretty good price. This vape does have a few cons, just like any other product, but after reading this and trying the vape, most readers will likely agree that the pros far outweigh the cons.

Univapo Kipo Pod Kit

  • Two Kipo Pods
  • One Kipo Vape
  • Type-C USB Cable
  • User Manual
  • One Lanyard

Univapo Kipo Pod Starter Kit

The lanyard is a nice touch to the kit. Univapo Kipo pod is a very small pod mod, and it is easy to lose, but the lanyard will decrease the likelihood of that happening. With it, the user can hang the pod mod around his or her neck.

Internal Building Quality and Design

The overall design and build quality of this vape are outstanding. The best thing about using this pod mod is that it feels like a cigar with a knurled texture, giving it added comfort and portability.

The only bad thing about the design is the positioning of the “mech style” firing button. It is positioned at the end of the vape, which is very inconvenient. It would have been much better had they put it on the side. Luckily, it has an auto draw that allows the user to vape without having to press the firing button.

Kipo Kit Battery

The Univapo Kipo pod uses a 520 mah internal battery. That may not seem like much, but that is a powerful enough battery for a product that does not use sub-ohm coils. Also, because the battery is only 520 mah and is USB-C, it charges within 30 minutes.

Battery Indicator Lights

The light is positioned near the bottom of the mod adjacent to the firing button. It is located in the “o” of the “Kipo” brand name located near the end. It has three lights:

  • Green: Fully charged or high
  • Blue: Medium
  • Red: Needs to be recharged

Univapo Kipo Refillable Pod

The pods are another great feature of this device. They have 2 ml e-liquid capacity and have a fill port located on the side. It is connected to the vape via a sturdy magnet, so it will not come off accidentally unless it is pulled really hard. The only con about the pod is that there is some wiggling between it and the connection.

However, that con is heavily outweighed by the shape of the mouthpiece. This is arguably one of the best mouthpieces on the market. It is conical shaped and tapers perfectly towards the end to fit the lips perfectly, making it ideal for MTL vaping.

The coils in the pods are great. The 1.0 ohm coil provides a very balanced draw that is not too tight nor too loose, and the vapor is very warm and flavorful. The 1.3 ohm coil provides the same draw, but the vapor is slightly cooler because of its higher resistance. It is an excellent coil for vaping high nicotine concentration liquids.

Vapor Production

The vapor production is pretty good for pods that do not use sub-ohm coils. However, these coils are more for producing flavor than anything else, so do not expect to blow huge vapor clouds.

Compatible Juices

These coils are great with salt nicotine liquids, especially the 1.3 ohm coil, which should do well with 30 mg or higher liquids.

How to Use the Kipo Refillable Pod

Pod mods are the easiest devices to use on the market, next to disposable vapes. Follow these simple steps, and everything should be fine:

  1. Remove the sticking protecting the connection
  2. Open the fill port and fill the pod with nicotine liquid
  3. Wait five to ten minutes for the liquid to fully absorb into the coil. Doing this will reduce the chances of burn hits.
  4. Click the firing button five times to turn the vape on and inhale.
  5. Charge the device by plugging the USB cord into the port located at the end

Step-by-Step Button Guide

  • Press the firing button five times to turn on/off
  • Press the firing button three times to lock the vape

Univapo Kipo Kit vs. Univapo Zumix Pod Kit​

Univapo Zumix Pod Kit​

The Zumix pod kit has some dissimilarities between itself and the Kipo. The first thing anyone should notice is that the Zumix’s firing button is positioned on the side, not on the end, making it more convenient to fire.

It also has three variable voltage settings that can be adjusted by clicking the firing button three times. However, it has a slightly smaller battery than the Kipo, which is a significant disadvantage when vaping at the highest voltage setting.

Univapo Kipo Kit vs. Miso Refillable Pod

Univapo Miso Pod

The Miso Pod is another impressive pod mod from Univapo that many people may prefer over the Kipo. The biggest thing it has going for it is a larger 600 mah battery that lasts longer than the Kipo’s. Also, it has a better-positioned firing button. But the mouthpiece is a bit oversized compared to the Kipo’s.

Univapo Kipo Pod Specifications

Construction Material: PCTG and Aluminum Alloy
Dimensions: 86.5mm x 18.5mm
Battery Capacity: 500mAh
Pod Capacity: 2 mL
Coil RResistance: 1.0 and 1.3 ohm Mesh Coils


The Positives

  • Ergonomic and portable
  • Flavorful
  • Excellent airflow
  • Fast charging
  • Auto-draw

The Negatives

  • Oddly positioned firing button
  • Pod wiggles in the connection

Final Thoughts About This Univapo Kipo Pod Review

This vape is excellent, but a few glaring faults shine through. First is the positioning of the firing button. They should have put it somewhere on the side where it could be more easily fired. You have to use your free hand or reposition your vape hand to use it the way it is now. But, luckily, it has auto-draw.

The second con is that the pod wiggles in the connection. There are plenty of pods with solid connections.

Other than that, there are no serious issues with this vape. It vapes great with both coils, producing tight and flavorful draws, and the device is super ergonomic and portable, and charges fast.

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.
