Going back the OG Gen did have a slight “Plasticy” feel as well. I know people are going to ask about the 510. I know the OG had a press-fit 510 and on this one, I have no idea of how to look for that. I’ve yanked and put stress on it. Seems to be holding up. Seem like more time will tell on that. So I’ll keep rocking this as a daily and let you know.

Otherwise, I said what I said about the Gen 200W and 80W. Kinda meh, kinda fine. The GTI Coil heads are really where it’s at with these. You can get those in other kits as well tho. I still think they are both really really boring looking and feeling.

I wasn’t expecting any surprises with the Vaporesso XROS NANO, but here we are. This is essentially a square version of the XROS2 ( same compatible pods ), but the XROS Nano does this “pulsing” thing that none of the other pods do. It’s not a dealbreaker really, but it’s something you will hear every time you vape. Less so with a restricted lung type of draw.

Otherwise, I like this for the same reason I mostly liked the other newer XROS2 and XROS Mini.

As I said in the video, I shot this at the end of November 2021. Everything I said still stands, and I feel the same way about the Vaporesso XROS 2 and XROS Mini right now as I did then.

I did receive the XROS Nano recently and will be doing a separate video for that little number. I’m honestly not sure where the confusion came from, but I will be including the XROS2 and XROS mini in the next pod ranking video.

These really really really got off to a strong start man. The Target 200 got a solid week of use before I even opened up the Target 100. I started noticing little annoyances, and it really went downhill fast. The GTX coil heads I’m really into. I don’t remember them being quite this good.

Shame about the doors, shame about that platform on top. I’m not exaggerating when I say this 200w ( even now with its problems ) could have been a daily banger for me. Vaporesso killed it with that texture, the whole device feels awesome 9,000.

Seemingly out of nowhere Vaporesso releases the Forz RDA? I’m sorry, my mind is being blown seeing an RDA from Vaporesso in 2020 / 2021. More than that, I’m kind of shocked this is a banger of an RDA.

I know the deck isn’t completely original, but it works really very well and is as simple as it gets for building and wicking. Honeycomb airflow on the FORZ RDA feels really hyper-smooth. Borderline “spongy” feeling.

It’s certainly not the best RDA ever made, or even made this year. For the price, you are absolutely getting a banger.

The XIRON is going to be a little sleeper device. It’s real simple and un-assuming, but vapes REALLY well. As I said in the video i’ve been going back and forth between The XIRON and the Hita Ink and they are insanely evenly matched in their good vape experience. It is honestly kind of a banger.

GTX Coils vape very well and are fairly reliable. Coil head life has been ok, Sometimes a GTX will last for 60ml of liquid… sometimes less, your mileage might vary. For the most part, I find them enjoyable.

Count how many times I said GeekVape in this review. Because I honestly lost track. At the end of the day this vapes great. The single 18650 battery life at 60+ watts might be less than impressive, and that rubber nubbin for the USBC actually drives me crazy and I refuse to fix it.

It honestly bums me out that Vaporesso went down this road, rather than being the innovators I have seen them be in the past.

The Vaporesso Luxe PM40 is one of the products that Vaporesso does have a PMTA accepted for. Which I actually explains a lot about this particular devices sylings. As I said in the video, I personally really enjoy the loose / open MTL vape from the 0.8ohm coil heads, but it isn’t objectively good or smooth or versatile airflow.

Otherwise the size is great, obviously a popular design. The colors and finishes are a little all over the place. I like this blue one I have, but that’s kinda it. The others are more strange and this orange one looks MUCH better on the box.

There are better products out there, and there are much much worse products out there. Though the LUXE pm 40 might be one of the only types of these devices left on the market in the United States. I will say I still expected more from Vaporesso than a Nord-alike.
