While looking similar in shape and design to Innokin’s previous MVP offerings the Innokin MVP4 Mod improves with it’s design and functionality but retains many of the features of its predecessors that I loved so much.
In the box we have :
The Innokin MVP4 Mod
A Micro USB Cable
Innokin have improved the MVP line a huge amount since the very?early days of the MVP models that only featured 15 and 20 watts, 2017 introduces Innokin’s fourth iteration in the line, the Innokin MVP4 Mod, this device still keeps that box looking shape and has a huge battery capacity as the older models had.
The last Innokin offering being the MVP3 only had 30 watts of power, this MVP4 cranks out a much larger 100 watts?of vaping power and also features a large 4500mAh internal battery which will easily see a moderate vaper through the day, however this time we do have a 2Amp micro USB Quick Charge feature?which will see the device charge incredibly quickly, the MVP4 also doubles as a power bank if needed, so also ideal if your smartphone needed a boost of power due to low battery.
The Innokin MVP4 Mod is powered by Innokin’s amazing Aethon microchip, which has advanced Temperature Control capabilities and includes modes for Stainless Steel SS316L wire, Ni200 wire and Titanium wire as well as the standard Kanthal wires, where one of the Aethon microchip features really excels is?it’s ability to detect and avoid dry hits when vaping, which is fantastic, but the Innokin MVP4 Mod also features many other safety precautions as Innokin is so well known for.

The large OLED screen is mounted on the side of the device and displays all the information you would need such as the wattage or temperature depending on what mode you are?in and the?charge level of the battery, the Innokin MVP4 Mod also features pass through technology and can be used while it is charging which is a bonus if this was your only device.
All together I think Innokin have again given us a device that simply works and works well, I have found the Innokin MVP4 Mod to be fantastic in all modes with all wires, my favourite setup?for this device being NI200 wire, the Dry Hit Detection and Prevention feature is amazingly well implemented and I’ve never feared over a dry hit while taking the longest inhale, the mod feels solid in the hand, weighty but not over weighted and the button placement is comfortable to use, all in all I have found the Innokin MVP4 a great device to use as an everyday mod.
Vapour-Shack.com has the Innokin MVP4 Mod on the website in the colours of Blue, Red, Aquamarine, Black and Silver so a colour to suit all tastes.
The battle begins right here so please take your seats and get ready for the main event, the battle of the century, the ultimate rumble in the tank jungle, introducing the Innokin Tank iSub Coil Challenge 7 Tanks 10 Coils, we are going to take all seven Innokin iSub tanks and use all ten iSub coils (Kanthal, Nickel, Titanium, Stainless Steel, Clapton and Ceramic) to see which combination of iSub tank works best with which iSub coil to give the best vape, we will look at the best combination for both flavour and clouds.
This is going to be the ultimate battle, a battle to end all battles, many variables stand in the way of the ultimate victor, these include the tank size, the way a coil is built, the coil size, which gauge of wire has been used for the coil build, but the ultimate factor is which tank and coil performs better with temperature control and which is better with variable wattage? all these answers are going to be decided today, as the press take to their seats the battle of words begins between our two suitors the Tanks vs. the Coils.
In the Red corner we have 7 of the best tanks that Innokin have ever made, the incredible iSub tanks : Innokin Tank iSub Coil Challenge 7 Tanks 10 Coils
The iSub – Tank Capacity 4ml
The iSub G – Tank Capacity 3.8ml
The iSub V – Tank Capacity 3ml
The iSub S – Tank Capacity 4.5ml
The iSub Apex – Tank Capacity 3ml
The iSub Apex 5 – Tank Capacity 5ml
The iSub A Mini – Tank Capacity 2ml
In the Blue corner we have 10 amazing Innokin iSub Coils : Innokin Tank iSub Coil Challenge 7 Tanks 10 Coils
This Tanks vs. Coils bout will require two constants to keep everything above the waist, this will be the E-Liquid being used and the Mod being used.
The Mod for this bout will be the latest Innokin MVP4 device, it gives us 6-100 Watts, 4500mAh with 2 amp charging and the ability to use both Variable Wattage and Temperature Control.
The E-Liquid for this bout will be the ever popular Tempest Storm Premium E-Liquid Golden Tobacco in 0mg strength, a fruit or sweet liquid test would have given to many variants on flavour among both TC and wattage?modes, taste is subjective so using a standard tobacco flavoured e-liquid keeps everything on an even level, thus offering neither fighter an advantage.
All Kanthal based coils will be used at exactly 4.2 volts with the conversion being done at steam-engine this will allow the same voltage to be used on the MVP4 with the calculation being given for the wattage based on the coils ohm rating, example: 4.2v on a 0.5 ohm coil would be 35.28 watts and 8.4 amps, this would provide the base voltage and to give all wattage based coils a fair chance, TC coil settings will be based on manufactured stated temperature settings per coil.
The Mod and the e-liquid are the only two constants in this test to find out which is the best iSub Tank and best iSub Coil combination, will the two suitors become best of buddies after the Innokin iSub Tank Challenge? will a tank be left waiting for another challenger? or will a coil and tank combo come forth as the champ of champs? the only thing we can be sure of is that there will be many future challengers for this trophy, but for now though, the fighters will prepare to face the many questions that their fans want answering. Which is the ultimate iSub tank and coil combination?
Tanks Ready? Coils Ready? lets get ready to RUMBLE………..!!
The chart shows the findings of how each Innokin Coil worked with each Innokin Tank.
Some Important Notes: All coils were tested mostly in accordance with Innokin’s preferred temperature or wattage settings, in the case where I have slightly gone over the manufactures settings it is because I was able to dial in a better flavour , I have given my own ratings out of 10 for both flavour and clouds and if I found the vape was cool or warm.
The Results :
Innokin Tank iSub Coil Challenge 7 Tanks 10 Coils
I was quite shocked that some of the iSub tanks that I have personally used over the years that I thought were good tanks actually didn’t perform anywhere near as well as I thought they would, I think the overall chart and my personal test does tend to show that tanks have got better over the years in the way that they deliver flavour with the notable mention to the iSub Apex 2ml, I have to put this tank in the absolute first place for overall best tank, but it was not the best with all coil types.
Ordered List of results?:
Kanthal 0.2? coil worked best with the iSub V tank and the iSub Apex 2ml tank, both tank and coil combinations giving a nice warm well rounded flavourful vape with an exceptional amount of cloud, both tanks have a small interior and deliver the vapour well with both of the tanks using a smallish chimney.
The iSub V came out on top for the Kanthal 0.5? coil as well, the tank must really like the higher wattages.
The iSub tank and iSub G tank have to take the honours for the Kanthal 1.2? coil although not convincingly, the flavour was good 8 pointers but personally I don’t think the 1.2? coil was ever that brilliant.
Finally for the Kanthal coils we have the 2.0? and I had to give this to the iSub S tank, the flavour and clouds were very good but the vape was getting hotter with more power going through the coil, not uncomfortably hot but I can only give my opinion of cool, warm or hot and my own preference is a cool to warm vape, but the iSub S did offer a very nice vape.
We now come to the Stainless Steel 316L coil at 0.5? and 4 tanks were in the running for this one, in fact I conducted this test with second SS coils to double check, I was shocked at the variation of tank sizes etc.. getting a great vape from all, but I think the iSub Apex 2ml and the iSub V just edging it, but a notable mention to the iSub S and the large iSub Apex 5 tanks, I can only say that the SS 316L coil is just a beast of?a coil with temperature control, I chose to only test this coil on the TC mode but I did do a wattage test that I did not make note of and the results were the same to not really make any difference, so I would highly recommend this coil especially as you can use it on both TC and wattage mode.
On the Titanium 0.4? coil I found that all the tanks were pretty much the same, the out standing tank for the test was the iSub Apex 2ml but for this one I did not understand why, I can only put this down to the Apex 2ml being so small that it gave more heat which was increasing the flavour, I am not a fond lover of Titanium wire as it can be very finicky especially when building with it and I find that it fluctuates to much, but the Apex 2ml won this test none the less.
Compared to all coils that have come before these next two Nickel coils I have to say that I just could not get a warm vape from either of them in?any tank, I will put the results for Nickel together here and say that the flavour was decent from the coils and each tank did it’s best on cloud and flavour delivery but the warmth was very lacking so obviously that is?down to the nickel coils, probably if I had of pushed the coils well over the parameters of the manufacturers coil specs I may of found heat, but that was against my own rules, but I will push you towards the iSub, iSub V and Apex 2ml for nickel flavour but only if you like extremely cool vapes.
Clapton coils tend to be the in thing at present and that’s because the wires used are great for both providing great heat to the liquid and more wire within the coil being able to evaporate the liquid, I have always got great flavour from self build Clapton’s so I did expect great things from this Clapton coil at 0.5?, the iSub S tank has to come out on top, it excelled well above all the other tanks but there were close runners up notable the iSub Apex on it’s first showing and the iSub V, all three gave a very nice round flavour and clouds for days and I would be happy using any one of them with the Clapton coil.
When It comes to Ceramic coils, you will either love them or hate them, I have used plenty of ceramic coils in Subtanks and I like them, but you have to get use to the fact that a Ceramic coil does have a ramp up delay, it takes longer for a ceramic coil to heat up enough to start vaporizing e-liquid, sometimes you are better holding your fire button for a second before putting the drip tip up to your mouth and taking an inhale, if you can get use to this then you will get a pleasant surprise as ceramic coils are pretty good, the iSub variants I found really good only needing a split second of a ramp up time, and reaching temperature pretty quickly, I had to award this one to the iSub Apex 2ml, again it’s a small tank and flavour is always going to deliver well from a smaller tank as the chimney is smaller so less distance for the vapour to travel and providing a really enjoyable warm vape.
Final Thoughts :
I enjoyed conducting these tests, I know they were not under laboratory conditions and I know they are all based on?manufacturer?settings and we can probably push a coil to get more out of it, but then you jeopardise the life of a coil, the test was more to see which coil and tank combo would be the best out of all the tanks and coils, after all the challenge is called the Innokin Tank iSub Coil Challenge 7 Tanks 10 Coils, so if I have to choose a combo to beat them all and based on my chart then I would have to choose the Stainless Steel 316L 0.5? iSub Coil and put it in the iSub Apex 2ml tank, agreed that I would be having to fill?the tank?every two minutes vaping at 60w or 470F but for the intense flavour and the dense vapour that the SS coil gave me then I would refill the tank 100 times per day if needed.
Thanks for taking the time to checkout this blog, I hope you manage to match up your iSub tank with an iSub coil that you may like to try.
If you need any Innokin coils or tanks then the website at vapour-shack.com may have them in stock or you can call in to see us at our Stoke On Trent Store.
When most of us go out with our e-cigs we tend to take a bottle of e-liquid out with us, most plastic bottles are secure with good fitting caps, but on occasion have you ever had e-liquid leak from the lid of your bottle while it was in your pocket or bag? I have! and it’s messy,?that’s where the Innokin Ucan E-Liquid Dispenser excells, it’s a leak free device for your e-liquid and it looks a lot classier than a cheap plastic bottle.
The Innokin Ucan E-Liquid Dispenser is made from Stainless Steel which is believed to preserve the flavour of your e-liquid, it is capable of holding 10ml of your favorite e-liquid and is very easy to use, simply remove the lid which also has a noddule on the top so that you can place the Innokin Ucan E-Liquid Dispenser on a lanyard or key chain, remove the sprung needle tip portion which is used for filling your desired tank or RDA, you will be left with the main chamber, this can be filled with 10ml of e-liquid in an easy fill way.
Simply once filled, replace the blunt needle part section?and replace the lid, when in closed mode the needle tip presses against a silicon grommit to stop e-liquid leaking during transit in the Ucan, a plastic bottle does not have that feature hence why we can get leaking from plastic bottles, when you are out and you need to drip in to an RDA?or top up your favourite tank, you simply remove the lid, place the needle tip in your desired tank and press the plunger style button on the base of the Ucan, your e-liquid will be delivered with no mess at all, when you have filled your tank, simply replace the lid and vape away, the remainder of your e-liquid will be stored for a later fill in the Innokin Ucan.
The Innokin Ucan E-Liquid Dispenser is a really classy device for carrying around your e-liquid, the blunt needle tip is long enough to be able to fill almost any device and the threads are machined excellently, this is a quality and classy piece of equipment that just looks and works fantastically.
The Innokin Ucan E-Liquid Dispenser V2 version is state of the art, convienient and fun and is available on the Vapour-Shack.com website at a fantastic price of ?8.99 currently, it is well worth a look, why carry a plastic bottle like every other vaper when you can carry something with more style and much more class.
It’s been a few?years since Innokin released an RDA, the Innokin Itaste VF Atomizer was their first foray in to the wonderful world of RDA’s back?in 2014, the Itaste VF was a great little RDA as it was small and well crafted and for me it?created a decent?quality of?flavour, three years on?and Innokin have been listening to the RDA user community to be able to offer us in 2017 their all new Innokin iRoar Eurus 24mm RDA.
This Innokin iRoar Eurus 24mm RDA Features :
An Air Flow Control System
Wide-Open Delrin Wide bore Drip Tip
Single or Dual Coil Configurations
Deep Juice Well
Euros (Eurus) was the god of the East wind in Greek Mythology and that sums up this Innokin iRoar Eurus 24mm RDA brilliantly, we are so use to RDA’s having air slots in the side of the top cap, so that the air can feed the coils, but in the case of the Innokin iRoar Eurus 24mm RDA, we still have the same two air slots but on the deck we have a cut out on each side pointing up to where the coil would sit, so the air will enter the top cap slots then be bounced and aimed upwards to hit the coil from a lower angle thus creating a much better flavour,?just a brilliant idea and a great design aspect from Innokin.
Also the Innokin iRoar Eurus RDA has a slightly tapered dome shaped top cap, this is also known to give a great flavour, the vapour has a smoother journey in to your mouth as the flow is not broken by harsh angles or ledges within the top cap.
In the Box :
The Eurus RDA
A Couple of Ready Built Coils (about 0.4 ohm each)
An Allen Key
Some Pieces of Cotton
Bag of Spare?Replacement Screws
A Bag of Spare O-rings
The Innokin iRoar Eurus 24mm RDA is available in various colours including Black, Blue and Gold and each one comes with an Ultem?style Delrin Wide bore Drip Tip which has a bore of just under 10mm in diameter, the drip tip is held in place by an internal top cap O-ring of the pressure fit variety?and is firm and does this job well, the top cap is engraved with the iRoar Eurus logo, it is a very well machined top cap with no sharp edges or burrs and feels very nice in the hand.
On to the base or deck of the Innokin iRoar Eurus 24mm RDA and we have twin O-rings that will hold the top cap in place, these O-rings fit the top cap snuggly meaning that the top cap will not be loose, we have a standard 510 fitting on the base of the deck containing what looks like a gold plated screw which then enters the deck to be flush with the inside base or drip well, this leads me to believe that Innokin could well be able to provide a Squonk pin in the future which would make this RDA very desirable for the price point.
The deck is a twin post four screw design that kind of reminds me of the deck of the Sapor RDA, it’s not the same but similar in style although this iRoar Eurus deck does have the directional air flow ramps on the base to help the air get directly to your coils, the deck is a single or twin coil RDA?however does only have the twin air flow slots, so if you like lots of air flow on a single coil then you’ll love it, I would primarily use the deck for twin coils and I believe you would easily fit two 3.5mm coils in with no problem, the two coils that are supplied in the bag?do appear to be 3mm inner diameter coils of flat Clapton wire design.
The positive?post?is milled well in to the deck and the negative post sits on?an insulator and is screwed in to the deck very well, the deck is a gold plated style deck with deep juice wells?meaning the deck will be able to hold?plenty of?that lovely Japanese Organic Cotton, the posts have Allen head screws to clamp your wires and?I would?say they could easily fit a 22 gauge wire although the coils that come with the Innokin iRoar Eurus RDA are?wires?much larger in diameter so pretty much most builds will fit.
The Innokin iRoar Eurus RDA is 24mm in diameter including the top cap and the Ultem style Delrin?base disc, the Innokin iRoar Eurus 24mm RDA does sit flush on all of my mods from Innokin but also fits flush?on more of my expensive mods from other manufacturers.
Using the two coils that came with the iRoar Eurus RDA from Innokin I was able to get a dual coil build giving me a 0.2? range, there is plenty of space on the build deck so I was?able to get plenty or Organic Japanese cotton in there, I soaked the wicks?with the ever popular Tempest Storm Premium E-Liquid choosing this time to go for the Mango flavour, the wicks soaked I gave a little heat to the coils to smell the aroma as the juice soaked in to the coils and I felt?like I was in the tropics, the smell of juicy sweet?mango, lovely. I replaced the iRoar Eurus RDA top cap and placed the RDA on to my Innokin MVP4 device, I set the initial wattage for the 0.2? build at 60 watts until it had bed in and the flavour of the mango was abundant and refreshing, I gradually raised the wattage until I hit my favourite point of 4.2 volts at 88 watts and the mango flavour was even more intense, it was a little less sweet at a higher wattage but it was a more pronounced flavour, it was like peeling and biting in to a fresh mango.
If your interested in purchasing the Innokin iRoar Eurus 24mm RDA then please see the Vapour-Shack.com website or visit us in store at our Stoke On Trent shop.
Here is a build video for the Innokin iRoar Eurus RDA using Stainless Steel 316L 26GA wire, a dual coil build for fantastic flavour that can be used in wattage mode or temperature control modes.
This week?I got hold of the Innokin Coolfire Mini Complete Vaping System with Slipstream Tank included?as a?kit, in the hand I will just say that this? is one STEALTHY mod,?this device is so small and yet so mighty in power that you can have it in your hand while out and about and no one would ever know, it’s such a small stealthy package but it has power by the bucket load.
In The Box you will get :
The Innokin Coolfire Mini Device
The Slipstream Tank
2 x 0.8 ohm Kanthal Coils (20w – 35w)
Micro USB Charge Cable
Spare O-Rings for Tank
A Silver Drip Tip (Metal)
A Black Drip Tip (Plastic)
Some Innokin Stickers
The Innokin Coolfire Mini Complete Vaping System with Slipstream Tank box has all the upcoming TPD regulation notifications on view?as well as?the standard Innokin Authenticity and Security Scratch and Check sticker so you can check that this is a genuine Innokin product, it’s a small compact box for this?compact and powerful vaping system.
The Specs of the Device :
6 – 40 Watts Precise Output
3 – 7.5 Volts
Will fire down to 0.2 Ohms Resistance
Micro USB Charging
1300 mAH Internal Lipo Battery
Stainless Steel 510 Connection
Over Discharge Protection
The Coolfire Mini device is tiny in my hand but I just can’t get over how solid and well made it is, although! it shouldn’t surprise me,?Innokin always make rock solid and reliable devices, this device measures just 63mm tall without the slipstream tank fitted and you can totally understand why it is called a mini mod,?also the device only weighs 79 grams so you would not even notice this in your bag or pocket, have I told you that this mod is compact?
When I think back to all the Coolfire Devices that Preceded the Innokin Coolfire Mini it shows you how far Innokin have come in producing us such an exceptional piece of?hardware for us to use today, the Coolfire line started with the Coolfire 4 which in relative terms was quite a chunky device, next came the Coolfire 4 Plus followed quickly by the Coolfire 4 TC 100 and the Coolfire 4 TC 18650 which were all large devices and once you added a tank on top were by no means small pocket able devices, so to put it in to perspective the Innokin Coolfire Mini Complete Vaping System with the Slipstream Tank fitted is smaller than any of the previous Coolfire mods on their own with no tank fitted, that shows you how small this fantastic kit is and how well Innokin have progressed over the years.
The Innokin Coolfire Mini is a stand alone Variable Wattage and Variable Voltage device, there is no Temperature Control here?as the size of the device would of had to?of been much?bigger, the Coolfire Mini has?an air fed 510 connection on top that can comfortably hold an old style bottom pin tank that needed air flow from the 510 connector but with today’s modern tanks this is not needed but Innokin have thought about us retro vapers with all our old bits of kit too, we have a curved style fire button on the Innokin Coolfire Mini which is very comfortable to use and a very good LCD screen to give us the info we need at a glance, the Plus and Minus buttons are small and tactile?and the USB connector is very solid and usable for charging the device, we have safety vent holes on the side of the device for our protection and?the device is available?in various colours including??Black, Blue, Pink, Silver & Purple.
The Slipstream tank is a top air hole fed tank with a bottom coil placement this means the air will feed down from the triple adjustable air slots go down through the chimney in to the outer wall of the coil, then feed up inside the coil to give you the exceptional flavour and vapour that this tank is capable of providing, this way of circulating air flow helps in keeping your coil cool which in tern produces a better flavour?from your e-liquid,?the coils also have large juice slots so? they will wick very well indeed even using a thicker liquid and the tank will hold 2ml of juice which?is TPD Compliant, this tank is a perfectly matched tank for the Innokin Coolfire Mini device giving you a superb vape in a very small package.
So in summary the Innokin Coolfire Mini Complete Vaping System with Slipstream Tank is a great system if your after a nice stealthy vaping device while out and about, it will fit in your pocket and you wouldn’t even know it was there, the Innokin Coolfire Mini Complete Vaping System with Slipstream Tank would also make a fantastic device for a new vaper, this is because it has no fancy bells and whistles that would confuse a person new to vaping, you simply just fit a coil, choose your wattage and vape away, it’s a simple yet small and compact device that is practical both inside and outside for both advanced vapers that want a discreet device or for the newbie that wants?a first device and one that gives a?great vape.
