Innokin Electronic Cigarettes and Mods Review
Vaping Daily Rating: 94/100 by Vaping Daily
Innokin has gained much popularity among the vaping public mostly due to its uncomplicated yet reliable e-cigarettes and mods. In the past few years, they have succeeded in manufacturing quality products for beginners in the e-cig industry and mod vaping scene. For new, intermediate, and advanced vapers, Innokin offers options that are one step ahead of the others in terms of convenience, build, design, and performance, with an open mind towards constant innovation based on customer feedback. We believe there is a good chance for this brand to rise to our top list shortly, so long as it continues to deliver quality vapes.
Innokin, founded in 2011, has no less than a 10,000 square-meter factory in Shenzhen, China. Despite the overseas mass production of their vaping products, this brand makes sure they pass the highest standards made for the international vaping community. Aside from having multiple certifications, Innokin boasts of a Service and Repair Center in California, USA, where their customers’ needs are primarily addressed. Do all of these transpire through their products? Let us take a look at how their devices perform.
Innokin Coolfire IV Mod Overview
The Coolfire IV iSub 40W immediately impressed us just by looking at its sleek and convenient design. It is small and sexy at 3.93 inches tall, with curved edges that make this box mod reflective of modern and ergonomic style. It comes in six different colors, is easy to carry around, and looks extremely high quality.
It is remarkable not only aesthetically but also in build and quality, as it feels durable and long lasting due to its aluminum finish. The buttons are well-placed and feel nice to the touch, without any rattling sound, unlike the previous Coolfire models. Innokin has made sure that the overall build of the Coolfire IV is likewise improved, adding a spring loaded pin, an ego adapter, and a durable threading made of stainless steel. This mod surely has a long way to go.
When you purchase a Coolfire IV, you will get a USB charging cable, an ego adapter, Innokin stickers, a battery disposal guide, and an instruction leaflet with it. It does not come with a tank, which you will have to buy separately, as well as an e-liquid to use.
Using this mod is veary easy and feels liberating due to the absence of too many complex features. Operating it involves three buttons, and you can be a wiz at the different navigation shortcuts in no time. Switching the device on and off can be done by pushing the power button thrice or using the manual switch that is found at the bottom.
The voltage on this mod can be adjusted by .1v increments while the wattage can be changed by .5w increments. For those who are not too meticulous in setting their wattage levels, the higher increments for wattage adjustment can be an advantage. On the other hand, sub ohm vapers and those who are very particular in the voltage levels that they vape at will find this device amazing.
Although Innokin recognizes the need for sufficient knowledge regarding e-cigs before anyone should move up to mod vaping, they included several effective protection features. They programmed the Coolfire IV to prevent overheating, over discharging, and short circuits and spare any user, including beginners, from unwanted circumstances.
The OLED screen is a bit small and may be an issue for anyone with a poor eyesight, but it is bright, flips according to how you hold your device, and shows everything that you need to see while vaping. The Coolfire IV also has a low voltage warning feature, and the power button light changes according to the amount of power left in the battery.
To date, it is the best mod that Innokin offers, featuring a variable voltage option that allows you to vape anywhere from 3-7.5V.
It fires up to 40W and is powered by a 2000mah battery that can last you a whole day of moderate to heavy vaping without having to recharge the unit. Although in case the need arises, its ‘vape while charging’ pass-through feature makes this a perfect “vape away” device. Innokin is a good brand for those who just cannot wait until the battery becomes fully charged. They placed the charging port on the side instead of the bottom, which we found convenient, as it enables you to put it down in an upright position, without fear of any leaking e-liquid.
The vapor production is superb with the Coolfire IV. It can fire down to as low as 0.2ohm, but the recommended clearomizer resistance to use is 0.3ohms. Of course, using sub ohm tanks, this device creates massive clouds of vapor. The flavor in our chosen e-liquid came out great, and the throat hit was a blast even at a low nicotine level. That makes the Coolfire IV an ideal device for quitting analog cigarettes and nicotine altogether.
To conclude, the Coolfire IV can be a newbie’s vape, with emphasis on careful handling and strict adherence to the product’s recommended settings. On the other hand, it is no doubt a top choice for those who want to switch from vape pens to mods and is a perfect portable back-up for cloud chasers at an affordable price.
Innokin Endura T22 Starter Kit
The Endura T22 Starter Kit from Innokin is just as striking as the Coolfire IV. An improved version of the Endura T18, the T22 Starter Kit is a one-button box mod with a high-capacity tank and improved battery power for beginners and intermediate users.
The Endura T22 sports the beauty of an advanced box mod instead of a vape pen. On the inside, it is a simple mod that is crafted especially for mouth-to-lung inhales. Needless to say, it can be an ex-smoker’s best friend when trying to quit the deed.
Innokin has chosen a sporty look on this one, with a powdered matte finish and three stripes on both sides. The Endura T22 is available in three colors: blue, black, and silver. It is nothing fancy, but it is bold and daring—something that men would prefer over too much trimming.
This box mod not only looks portable but feels compact and strong enough to withstand a couple of drops and blows. The size, which easily fits in your hand, was intended for easy transportation. You can hear a little rattle on the fire button, but it still feels solid and long-lasting. Like the Coolfire IV, the Endura T22 has its USB port on the side.
There is much more than looks and build on this mod, as the T22 Prism tank that is included in the kit holds up to 4.5ml of e-liquid. It is a low-resistance tank that is designed to match the slim and compact build of the mod. It comes with 100% cotton coils, stainless steel caps, and an insulating Delrin drip tip. Aside from being hard-wearing, the Prism tank produces clean and pure vapor.
The battery power has been increased to 2000mah in this model. When combined, the battery and tank features satisfy the need for longer-lasting vape sessions that do not require frequent refills and recharging. It also has a pass-through feature that is almost obligatory for those who want to vape all day; otherwise, a removable battery that can be replaced with a back-up will be a better choice.
Using the Endura T22 is more than trouble-free. It involves simply pushing a single button to reach the appropriate wattage according to your coil. This beauty can fire down to 1.5ohms and produce amazing clouds of vapor with just the right hit and flavor. We enjoyed blowing clouds out of this device, especially when using a 50-50 PG-VG ratio from the top e-liquid producers.
Since this is a ‘beginner’s mod’, there are safety features included in the device, which makes it all the more convincing for newbies to move up from plain and dull cig-a-likes to a much better device such as the Endura T22.
