Our Experience with the Innokin Endura T18 II
How it Vapes
Let’s kick off this Innokin Endura T18 II review with the question that’s on everyone’s mind: how does it vape? How is the T18 II’s vapor?
In terms of vapor production, the Endura T18 II isn’t anything special. With a maximum wattage of 13.5W, most won’t expect much more. The Endura T18 II’s vapor production is on par with other low-wattage vapes of this kind.
The Endura T18 II’s flavor quality, on the other hand, is great. The vape is geared towards casual vapers that want a portable, high-quality experience.
This vape’s quality might not be evident in the T18 II’s vapor production, but it’s evident in its vapor quality as well as its build quality. Each coil provides a slightly different vape session, but both work extremely well.
Sadly, there’s no temperature control feature to be found in the Endura T18 II, but its variable wattage control works exactly as it’s intended to.
The Innokin Endura T18 II’s 1300mAh battery provides more than enough battery life to last most vapers a full day of use. Even heavy vapers will find that depleting this battery within 24 hours is tough.
There are definitely vapes out there with higher battery capacities, but the T18 II perfectly balances portability and power. Vapes with higher capacities will likely be larger, while the T18 II provides just the right amount of power in an ultra-portable form factor.
The Endura T18 II features variable wattage control and provides three different wattage options to choose from: 10.5W, 12W, and 13.5W. Even the highest wattage option (13.5W) will barely even drain this 1300mAh battery.
Needless to say, the T18 II’s 1300mAh battery provides more than enough power to this stick-style vape mod. Considering how low the operating wattage is, this battery should last a while even for the heaviest of vapers.
That’s all that really needs to be said about the T18 II battery. Next, in VapeRevs’ Innokin Endura T18 II review, let’s talk more about the T18 II’s user experience. Specifically, let’s talk about T18II’s ease of use.
Ease of Use
The Endura T18 II is a stick-style vape mod with a single-button interface. The single-button interface is very common in vapes, and the T18 II’s interface isn’t too different from others in the same category.
Like most single-button vapes, the Endura T18 2 can be turned on by pressing the power button five times. Additionally, pressing the power button three times will cycle through the preset wattage options.
To use the Innokin Endura T18 II, first fill and attach the Prism tank and select the desired wattage on the T18 II mod. Once everything is ready, just hold down the single front-facing button and simultaneously take a pull. At the end of the pull, release the fire button.
The Endura T18 II is just as easy to use as most of the vapes on the market these days, but what about the Prism T18 II Tank?
How does the Prism T18 II Tank Perform?
The Innokin Endura T18 2 Kit comes with a matching Prism T18 II tank that performs like an absolute beast. It’s great that Innokin included a 2.5 ml liquid capacity tank here, as finding a good tank with such a low operating wattage range would be a little tough.
The Prism T18 II liquid tank was made specifically for the Endura T18 II’s operating wattages. Because the two were made to be optimally compatible, the vapor that the two produce in conjunction is flavorful and smooth.
Additionally, the vapor production supplied by the combo is surprisingly good. The vapor here is obviously not as plentiful as it is in other, more-powerful mods. However, with this kit, 13.5 Watts can supply more vapor than most vapers would expect.
This more or less concludes with in-depth analysis portion of this Innokin Endura T18 II review. Next, let’s sum up this stick-style vape by going over everything good and everything bad regarding the Endura T18 2.
What Does the Competition Offer?
The Endura T18 II is by no means a bad vape, but its competitors will be its undoing. While the Endura T18 II is a great vape, there are other, more-powerful alternatives with the same form factor and very similar price tags.
For instance, the Freemax Twister Kit is virtually identical to the T18 II in terms of its price, but it provides over 4x the maximum operating wattage. Yes, for the same price as the T18 II, the Freemax Twister offers precise wattage control with a maximum wattage of 80W.
Plus, the Freemax Twister’s vapor puts the Endura T18 2’s vapor to shame. The T18 II’s vapor quality definitely isn’t bad, but the Twister’s mesh coils are leagues beyond the rest of the competition in terms of flavor.
The Freemax Twister currently provides some of the most flavorful vapor that flavor-chasers can get. Its mesh coils provide extremely even heating, resulting in some of the best-tasting vapor, ever.
Despite being priced very similarly to the Endura T18 II, the Freemax Twister provides unparalleled innovation. The Twister’s vapor destroys that of the T18 II in terms of both vapor production and flavor. That being said, the Twister comes out on top as the superior vape.
VaporFi VAIO Go
The VAIO Go is VaporFi’s take on the all-in-one vape, and it differs from the Freemax Twister and the Endura T18 II in a few ways.
First of all, its power isn’t calculated in terms of wattage, which will make comparing it to the T18 II slightly more complicated. The VaporFi VAIO Go’s power is calculated in volts, and it provides a maximum of 5.5 volts.
Taking into account the VAIO Go’s resistance, current, and maximum voltage into account, we can determine that the VAIO Go’s maximum operating wattage is around 20 watts. That’s just an estimation, but it puts the VAIO Go pretty close to the Endura T18 2 in terms of power.
The VaporFi VAIO Go has an integrated 2000mAh battery, which will last significantly longer than the T18 II’s 1300mAh battery. Additionally, the VAIO Go’s vapor production is superior to that of the T18 II. It’s definitely close, but the VAIO Go’s vapor production is just slightly better.
However, in terms of flavor, the VAIO Go and the T18 II are pretty much tied. The vapor from each is undeniably different, but neither is necessarily better than the other. Any perceived difference in quality will come down to the individual user’s personal preferences.
Thus concludes VapeRevs’ Innokin Endura T18 II review. We’ve talked about every aspect of the Endura T18 II, from its vapor quality to its build quality. Now, let’s briefly sum up this Innokin Endura T18 II review with a few concluding thoughts.
The Innokin Endura T18 II: Final Thoughts
The Innokin Endura T18 II is a competitively priced, stick-style vape mod kit. It comes with the Endura T18 II stick mod as well as the Prism T18 II tank. The two are made for one another and result in a rather interesting vape session.
The Endura T18 II maxes out at 13.5 watts, which isn’t that much power. However, what the Endura T18 II does with so little power is impressive, as this vape produces a fair amount of flavorful vapor.
While the Endura T18 2 is great, this vape face scrutiny primarily when it’s compared to competing stick mods. There are other, more powerful stick mods on the market that provide more power in a similar form factor for a nearly-identical price tag.
For instance, the aforementioned Freemax Twister costs about the same as the Endura T18 II, but its maximum wattage setting is 4x that of the Endura T18 II. Plus, it’s the superior vape in terms of both vapor production and flavor.
In conclusion, the Endura T18 II is a great vape, but it falls flat when compared to competitors that offer more power for the same price. If the Endura T18 saw a significant price drop, it would be an easy recommendation, but as of now, money is better spent on a Freemax Twister Kit.
