What Kind Of Vaper Is This Device For?
The Innokin Endura T18 is a full vaping starter kit that is mainly aimed at people who are looking to convert from smoking to vaping, and as such it is a basic kit that features a tight mouth to lung draw to replicate the action of smoking.
Looks and styling
One of the first things you realize when you pick up the Innokin Endura T18 is just how light it is in the hand, it’s a great piece of kit to hold and carry around, and very comfortable too.
You can reach the power button easily when using it, meaning that it is easy to operate.
The build quality of this kit is very good, with a really nice finish (4 different finishes are available in turquoise, silver, black and pink) that stands up to heavy use and doesn’t chip easily.
The top of the PRISM tank twists off easily allowing you to refill and swap coils quickly, and here you will also find the drip tip which is manufactured from Delrin.
This mouthpiece feels nice on the lips and also has the bonus of reducing heat so your lips don’t get hot or burnt.
The capacity of the tank itself is 2.5ml and the tank section is made from reinforced pyrex which means it is able to withstand daily usage and slight knocks well.
The Endura battery features a real 1000 mAh capacity that you should find will easily last you the day. At the base of the battery is a small cap the hides the USB charging port, and the cap helps keep the USB port free of pocket lint and dust.
Using the Innokin Endura T18
The Innokin Endura T18 is supplied with the Endura battery and PRISM tank separate, so you will need to assemble this out of the box.
The PRISM tank has a coil pre-installed, so you just need to screw the PRISM tank onto the Endura battery, just make sure you don’t over-tighten it. As soon as you meet resistance that’s as far as you need to go.
The draw is aimed to replicate the mouth to lung draw that you would get from a normal
cigarette. The flavor that you get from this is excellent and right up there with some of the best vape tanks around.
There’s an ample amount of vapor produced, and it makes for a really satisfying vape. The coils perform really well with even the highest of VG juice and this means that you don’t really have to worry about the type of e juice that you use with the PRISM tank.
They also last a lot longer than many other coils do, you should get well over a week’s use from a single coil.
How To Fill The Endura Prism Tank
Your next step is to fill the PRISM tank with your chosen e-liquid. This is done via unscrewing the top of the tank (the top cap), and filling to the side of the coil whilst avoiding getting any juice in the middle of the coil itself.
After it is filled, replace the top cap and let it stand for at least five minutes, allowing the coil to soak up as much juice as possible. Once ready, you simply push the power button to vape!
The Endura battery has a 1000 mAh capacity, and for new vapers you should find that this
comfortably lasts you the day, however you may find that you may want to pick up a spare
battery as well just in case.
Charging The battery
You recharge the Endura battery by plugging the USB cable into the bottom of it, and into a safe power source. You can still vape with the Endura T18 whilst it charges, however you need to bear in mind that this will make the charging time longer.
Once it has finished charging, the LED indicator will switch off to indicate it is fully charged. There are full safety features built into the Endura battery as well for your protection.
What I liked
- The flavor you get from your juices is really excellent. The Prism tank performs as well
as many more advanced tanks on the market, and it’s certainly the best beginner tank I
have ever personally tried.
- It’s so simple to use, you simply fill the tank with the easy top filling system and push a
button to vape. If you need to change a coil, this is quick and simple too.
- It’s a really well made piece of kit, that is light and comfortable to hold, and it looks great
- The battery life should give you easily a full days use, meaning you don’t have to
recharge it constantly.
- The coils perform extremely well with most mix ratios of juice and they last a long time
What I didn’t like
- It is a very basic kit. If and when you decide to make the switch to more advanced gear such as box mods, you may find that you don’t have much use for this anymore.
- The airflow is fixed rather than adjustable, so you cannot have a play around and
change any of the airflow settings.
- The airflow itself is fixed to a mouth to lung draw, which some people may find a little on
the restricted side. For smokers making the switch, it is perfect as it replicates a smoking draw, but for people used to a more open draw they may not get on with this.
