Innokin Endura T20 Review – Fine Vapor Clouds
Innokin released a highly functional vape pen starter kit providing the ability to vape with a long-lasting built-in battery, and a device that utilizes its sleek design and single button function to offer the very best out of each vaping session. Innokin promised a ‘refined flavor’ so we were looking forward to verifying it.

Diving inside the Box
The box is covered by an outer sleeve and has all the contents (many of them) nicely packed inside.
The Endura T20 is a standard pen-style device. We like the way it fits in hand, it feels good, and no elements from the design are bothering or make it uncomfortable. The dimensions (4-15/16″ x 13/16″ and 20.5mm diameter) make it easy to hold and convenient to carry around. To be honest, the design did not blow us away, but we liked the overall simplicity.
We also have to mention the protective top cap that pops to the device base, which makes it easier to store. It is nice to have.

T20 Versus T18: A Brothers Race
We compared the Innokin Endura T20 with its brother the T18. We had a quick overview and here is what we think. Time for you to also make up your mind.
Both devices are compact and share a quite similar slim light design. They feature a unique button technology, which makes them extremely convenient and easy to use.
The Innokin Endura T20 is designed for MTL vaping and therefore features 1.5-ohm coils. It also has a larger battery capacity (1500mAh vs. 1000mAh for the T18), which makes a small but noticeable difference regarding vapor quantity, smoothness, and quality.
However, the T18 remains a strong contender and wins the chamber capacity race. It features a 2.5ml e-Liquid capacity, doing better than the T20 2ml chamber. Despite a slightly weaker battery, the T18 is still able to produce a quality vapor.
Lastly, while the T20 features an added removable cap that improves its portability and acts as a base stabilizer also, the T18 allows to vape while charging, which we appreciate.
Both devices would be great fits for beginners. The T18 and T20 look overall similar and cost pretty much the same. However, small but noticeable upgrades make the T20 our favorite, even if the T18 is not far behind.
Endura T20 Quick Start Guide
Changing the coils on the T20
We also had it very easy to figure out how to change the coil. Just hold the tank upside down, unscrew the metal ring, then gently pull the coil out before aligning the flat sides of the coil over the slots and push in. Screw the base ring back onto the tank, and you are all done. Note that you cannot replace the coil with e-liquid still inside the tank.
Design and Build: Quality
The T20 is a solid vaporizer. We were able to screw the parts easily. The protective cap does the job well and is a great addition.
Regarding the design, the device is compact enough and feels fairly light, very convenient to bring around, to travel or carry in a coat or trouser pockets. The protective cap is a great addition to the T20. Overall, we find the design and layout decent and simple, practical to use without extravagance. That is all we need!
How Does the Innokin Endura T20 & Prism Tank Perform?
A battery that won’t let you down
The built-in 1500mAh battery is extremely easy to charge thanks to the USB cable. It took us between 1h30 to 2h to fully charge the battery, and two days to use it up completely, which is a brilliant performance.
The Innokin Endura T20 battery has a basic colors code that points out when it is fully charged (green light), half charged (yellow light) or when it is time to recharge (red light). Difficult to make it easier.
Innokin Endura T20 in practice
We spent a day trying the T20, and it has been an enjoyable experience, even if our final feeling is a bit mixed.
We used Iced Cherry e-liquid flavor and were surprised with the flavor boost the T20 offered to us. However, the flavor decreased quite fast, and we could only enjoy flavor-full first few draws.
Then, on the one hand, the draws were just right, nothing spectacular to be honest. We were limited to a mouth-to-lung type of draws, and we liked the reasonable amount of vapor we were getting, but nothing memorable. In fact, the amount of vapor from 5-8 seconds pull hardly produced enough flavor. It should be all right for beginners, not really for us.
On the other hand, we occasionally felt that the coil seemed to struggle at times. It was OK at 70VG, but from 80VG and above, we felt that the device started to struggle a bit. We also encountered slight leaking issues through the air intake. It happened after we filled the pen up the second time, even if we made sure not to load it to the maximum.
We used 14 Watts to vape, and the battery handled well. However, vaping at a higher power and longer would probably have drained it much quicker. Let’s finish on a positive note with the great battery charging speed; it only took us 1h30 to 2h to fully load it!
Loading the T20
Filling in the Innokin Endura T20 Prism tank is simple, despite not being able to swap out the coils without first draining the e-liquid.
Simply unscrew the whole tank and remove the battery. Then hold the top cap and unscrew it from the tank, before adding the e-liquid against the glass side. Make sure you avoid the central chimney and don’t overfill. Then simply screw the top cap back, and it is advised to leave it for 10 minutes before starting to vape.
Operating the Vape Pen, Nothing Easier
Using the Innokin Endura T20 is as easy as loading the tank or changing the coil. Press the (unique) button three times to turn on and off the device. Then hold down the button to vape.
We are happy overall! Seriously, we did not find major issues when we tried the Endura T20. It satisfied us at many levels; we really had a nice time getting to know it and trying it.
What we Liked the Most
We are not hiding that devices with a unique usage button are always winning, they make life so much easier. The protective top cap is a strong plus, and we also liked the design and functional simplicity, the easy loading, the battery fast charging and life capacity.
Our Least Favorite Features, no Biggie
No spare coil can be an issue for some people, but not really for us in fairness. Also, you can only change the coil when there is no juice left in the tank. It can be a pain, and this time we agree.
Convenient for Everyone
Designed initially for beginners, this little device could also satisfy the more experienced users. The obvious lower vapor power and the taste did not block us, on the contrary, given the battery power, it does more than the job! The coils are performant and produce a rich flavor, and the protective cap is a nice added feature to the Endura T20.
To the question ‘Has the flavor been redefined?’, we reply: YES.
