I’m not one for gimmicky coil heads. Innokin’s “DUO PRIME” coil heads for the Kroma 217 seem really gimmicky at first, turns out they are actually the best coil heads that INNOKIN has ever released. Evidently, there is another layer of mesh in the layers of cotton that warms up and helps draw liquid into the coil head. All I know is the 0.2 coil head lasted me weeks, and still shows no sign of slowing down.
The gripes are the gripes, it’s whatever. I wasn’t expecting The Kroma 217 to be flawless. Overall very impressed and satisfied with this kit from Innokin. Nice fit, nice finish, nice hand feel, excellent vape.
Here’s the thing, the Innokin MVP Pod is fine. It vapes REALLY great at first, then settles down into a perfectly fine vape. Not particularly crackly or crispy, but plenty flavorful. My real issue is with the MVP Pod is all chip-related. Checking the battery is dumb and rarely works.
Innokin has always had red, yellow, and green. I don’t know why they went with only green and red on this. Even a yellow activation indicator that wasn’t green or red could have been fine. I’m just nit-picking at this point. Lots to like about the MVP Pod and I honestly think it’s Innokin’s best pod to date.
Innokin ( and most of China, now that I think about it ) has always just given us little upgrades here and there. Yeah this CoolFire z80 is probably the nicest most feature-rich best vaping CoolFire Kit to date. But it’s still just kinda…. there….
I would love to see a China company not release a product for like a YEAR. Then give it a truly great innovative “COOLFIRE XKRED27” or something. I guess it’s just getting old reviewing seemingly the same thing over and over and over again with little bells and whistles here and there. It still vapes great, but is overall mostly boring.
So, yes there will be a follow-up to this video when I have put some more “miles” on the coil heads. It’s only been about 3 weeks so far, and I don’t feel like you can get an accurate feel of how long these coil heads are lasting.
Otherwise, I’m fascinated by the “F” tech, As I said in the video, I don’t know if it really does anything? It does feel different, but in a way I can’t really describe. Objectively, this device is pretty solid. The button / panel does get “creaky” every now and then, but it’s not a dealbreaker IMO. Glass tanks are pretty rad honestly. The RDL 0.2mesh coil heads are quite flavorful.
I’m a fan of Innokin and I’m a fan of Innokin appealing to smokers with the new EQ FLTR. Is it perfect? Far from, but for a smoker, I think this could be truly stellar. There have been some rad pods lately as I discussed in this video.
With that said, the EQ FLTR is pretty solid. Not on the same level as things like the Wenax K1 or the V-Thru, but still very very solid. Smooth draw, good flavor, Excellent form factor.
If you have a friend or family member that smokes, who wants something that feels like a cigarette in the mouth. The EQ FLTR could be exactly what they need to finally quit combustion and for that, I can’t be too too hard on this device.
Ok welcome everyone! had such a fun time last week doing the MTL build stream that I wanted to do it again. We have a NEW Artemis from Cthulhumodz to try out today. This was a late 2020 MTL tank that just arrived in my office. Going to be putting it up this week against the ARES2 , The Intake MTL, and the Reload MTL RTA. We can wrap it all up at the end with another “shoot out” type of thing. I’m an MTL guy, so I’m really really excited to see how this Artemis stacks up.
I also still have all of last weeks MTL tanks still going, so this just became an 8 TANK SHOOT OUT!!! WHOAHHHH BABY!! Anyway, all my after-stream thoughts will be down below.
Really just a great product for smokers and vapers looking for a solid coil head based MTL ( mouth to lung ) “pod” system. It’s hard to call this strictly a “pod” system just because of the size. Regardless, the Endura M18 is legit solid.
As far as coil head life goes, 2 of the coil heads lasted me about 30mls, another only lasted a few days, but these last two have both been going strong well after the 30ml mark.
We will be going through many of the regular segments this week including Beer, Retro Vaping, Liquid Tasting and more. Got a little bit of mail this week, got an old school HIGH END retro vape this week! Got a liquid tasting that one of my patrons sent me. Of course there will be some news and advocacy in there as well, including defending flavors… yet again.
Gates open, come on in !

I want to clarify something I said in the video. Asmodus did not say “the flavor sucks” they said “The flavor kind of sucks” small difference, but it matters.
Now then, this is an incredibly versatile and easy to use MTL tank. Wicked easy deck to build on, wicked easy wicking, decent flavor and LOTS of airflow options. The “restricted lung” is fairly useless IMO and even in that mode, I can still just use it as an MTL.
The rounded chimney just doesn’t really lend itself to great flavor. Like I said in the video, harder angles = better flavor. Even that DVARW tank I built on monday has really hard angles and it also has stellar flavor, much better flavor than the ARES2
