The Marvos T is a very good starter kit, but some people prefer interchangeable batteries. The Marvos S is designed to meet the needs of those vapers. Additionally, the pod mod is loaded with features and specifications that make for an excellent vaping experience.

FreeMax Marvos S Review

The Marvos S is an 80 watt vape that uses a direct-to-lung vape and a single 18650 battery. It is constructed from zinc-alloy and vegan-friendly leather. Additionally, it has three firing modes, making it an excellent vape for people who want a versatile mod.

Vapor Production

Vapor production on this vape is very high. It comes with two low resistance mesh coils that are ideal for producing large amounts of vapor. It usually takes more than one breath to get all the vapor out of the lungs.

Power Modes

  • Smart Mode: This mode detects the coil’s resistance and sets the vape at the recommended wattage
  • Bypass Mode: This mode works very great, too, and it is the best setting for people who want to maximize the flavor out of the mesh coils
  • Power Mode: This is straight wattage, and it works well in this mode too.

Safety Features

  • Short Circuit Protection
  • Overheating Protection
  • Undervoltage Protection
  • Overcharging Protection
  • Deep Discharge Protection

Differences Between the Freemax Marvos S 80W and Marvos T 80W Kit

These are excellent starter kits, but the differences make them suitable for different kinds of users. The Marvos S is smaller and more portable. The Marvos T kit is larger, and it has a huge battery that takes a lot of time to charge.

FreeMax Marvos T 80W Kit

While the vaping experience and most of the features are mostly the same, the Marvos S is more convenient because the batteries can be swapped out when they die instead of waiting over an hour while they charge.

The Freemax Marvos S Pod Kit

  • Marvos S 80W Mod
  • 4.5 ml Marvos DTL Pod Tank
  • 0.15 ohm MS Mesh Coil
  • 0.25 ohm MS Mesh Coil
  • USB Charger Cable
  • User Manual
  • Warning Card
  • Warranty Card

Internal Build Quality and Design

The mod is made from zinc alloy, and it has a squishy imitation leather grip that is very comfortable. The charge port is perfectly positioned on the side so that it does not have to be laid down to charge; it stands on the base as it should.

Another nice thing is the knurled battery cap. It is easy to grip, and the threading is smooth. There is no need to worry about cross-threading it.

Finally, it is a small box mod that must be one of the most ergonomic on the market. The device is comfortable to hold.

The only bad thing about the design is that there is some ever so slight overhang front the tank. But users should not notice it unless they are really paying attention.

Battery

The mod is only compatible with a single 18650 battery. That is borderline for an 80 watt mod. It would have been better had they made it compatible with 20700 and 21700 batteries. Battery life is ok so long as the vape is not constantly maxed out.

The Screen

The screen is beautiful, vibrant, clear, and crisp. It is a 0.96 inch TFT Color Display Screen. Battery life is displayed at the screen’s top margin.

Beneath is the wattage, voltage, resistance, and other vital information needed to run this vape. The wattage increases in one watt increments, but it does not round-robin.

The FreeMax Marvos DTL Pod Tank

This is a pretty good tank with one flaw: the fill port located on the bottom. Fill ports should be located on the top or side, preferably the top. Other than that, this is a good tank.

The most remarkable feature is that the base is secured to the tank with magnets. They are powerful and keep it all together, but not so strong that the base and tank portions are impossible to separate.

Another good feature is the fill port. Yes, it is at the bottom, but they are wide, and any bottle nozzle will fit inside. Some of these slots are so small that a syringe is needed. That will not be a problem with the Marvos S pod.

FreeMax Marvos S 80W Coils

The Freemax starter kit comes with 0.15 and 0.25 ohm MS mesh coils. These are excellent coils for high wattage, low resistance vaping. The recommended wattages are written on the coils, and smart mode will automatically adjust the wattage according to the coil, which is excellent for novice vapers who are unsure about the best setting.

The 0.15 ohm MS coil is excellent for vaping at 80 watts. The vapor is very warm, and is perfect for producing big clouds. The experience with the 0.25 ohm coil is almost the same, but the vapor is slightly cooler.

Compatible Juices

Since these are low resistance mesh coils that get very hot, they are best used with liquids with high vegetable glycerine to propylene glycol liquids. Anything with an 80/20 or 70/30 ratio will do the trick. With these liquids, vapor production will be outstanding.

How Long Do the Coils Last?

The mesh coils will last one to two weeks, possibly longer, if they are used with high VG liquids. However, 50/50 liquids will gunk up the coils and kill them very fast.

Additionally, to prime the coils before vaping them adequately. Priming them will reduce dry hits, spitback, and all the other problems associated with poorly primed coils.

How to Use the FreeMax Marvos S 80W

The tank and mod are easy to use.

  1. Firstly prime the coil by dripping two or three drops of juice inside.
  2. After that, pull the base off the tank and push the coil all the way in.
  3. With the coil secure, lift the silicone tab covering the fill port and fill the tank to capacity.
  4. Replace the silicone cover and put the base back on the tank.
  5. Wait five to ten minutes for the coil to absorb the liquid to avoid dry hits and spit back.
  6. Afterward, use the button combinations below to operate the mod.

Button Combinations

  • Five clicks turns it on and off
  • Press the down and firing button simultaneously and then use the wattage adjustment buttons to change the screen’s color
  • Press the up and firing button to reset the puff counter
  • Press the up and down buttons to lock and unlock the vape
  • Press the firing button three times to change modes

Competing Products

FreeMax Marvos S 80W vs. Vaporesso Luxe 80W

The critical difference between these vapes is that the Luxe 80 uses a 2,500 mah internal battery. The problem with the battery is that 2,500 mah is overstated. As a result, users will not get as much life out of it as they expect.

Vaporesso Luxe 80W Colors

Another issue is that its pod and coils can be very challenging to remove. However, its main advantage is that it has a 5 ml juice capacity.

FreeMax Marvos S 80W vs. Wotofo Smrt Pod 80W

The Wotofo Smrt Pod is a pretty good vape, but it does not compare with the Marvos S mod. It has less battery life, no airflow control, and the starter kit only comes with one coil. There also are some problems with leaking.

Wotofo Smrt Pod

It is not a bad mod, but the Wotofo Smrt Pod is more for beginners. More advanced users should go with the Marvos S.

Pros&Cons

The Positives

  • Excellent cloud production
  • 360-degree airflow adjustment
  • Wide fill ports
  • Magnetic connection between the tank and base
  • Well-designed coils

The Negatives

  • Bottom filled
  • No round-robin

Final Thoughts About the FreeMax Marvos S 80W

The FreeMax Marvos S has few cons. The biggest con is the fill port on the bottom. Taking the tank off to refill it is inconvenient, and having the port on the bottom increases the chances of leaking. Other minor criticisms are the slight overhang with the tank and no round-robin on the screen, but those things in no way affect the vaping experience.

It was hard to come up with anything negative about this vape because all the other features are spot on. The airflow is excellent, and the fact it turns 360 degrees is a nice touch.

Other good features are the wide fill ports, the magnetic connection between the base and the tank, and the incredibly well-made MS mesh coils. Those coils give off excellent clouds and flavor.

Other than that, there is nothing else to say about this vape, except that it is worth every penny. If you have something to say about it, please leave a comment below.

I was a smoker for over 25 years. In this time I also earned my medical degree with a specialization in addiction treatment and counseling. That period has led me to vaping, my interest started around 2011. I’m fighting the tide of hysteria and dis-information around vaping that emanates from various fronts legislative, cultural and scientific. Having scientific councils support, I’m happy to contribute my thoughts, articles, and expertise.
