Innokin Disrupter – The Two Part Mod Reviewed
Innokin’s latest release, the Innokin Disrupter, is certainly one of the most intriguing releases to come to market as of late. It’s actually two parts, the Disrupter itself houses the chip and operating system, and the unit is powered by the second part, the Innocell battery.
The Innocell C50 is a 2000 mAh removable Lipo battery, attached via the new slide and click system. The idea behind this is that you can easily swap out batteries as and when you need to, and there’s also an endless amount of color customization options available to you, so you can really personalize the Disrupter unit as a whole!
It’s a really exciting new innovation from Innokin, so let’s see how it all works with our Disrupter review…
What’s In The Box?
- Innokin Disrupter unit
- Innocell C50 battery, 2000 mAh lipo charged via Micro USB (C50 Plus 3000 mAh available)
- Micro USB charger
- User Manual
There’s a whole range of different color combinations available for the Disrupter unit and the Innocell battery itself, so the options to customize to your preference is superb.
The Innokin Disrupter Is Available To Buy From The Following:
Innokin Disrupter Body & Build
The Disrupter control unit on its own is well sized. At the front of your unit you will find a good sized power button along with an up and down button, the buttons feel solid and well made.
The OLED screen is very bright and clear, with the added bonus of still being very visible in daylight. You’ll find information here such as resistance, battery life and your selected power.
You are able to flip the screen orientation, change from variable voltage to variable wattage and display a puff counter. A spring loaded 510 connector is present, now fast becoming a feature of Innokin units, that allows for a flush fit with your atomizers.
As a whole, the Disrupter unit combined with the Innocell is a not the smallest vape mod available by any means but it does fit nicely in the palm of your hand and the weight is well balanced.
Combined with Innokin’s new iSub Apex tank makes for a really nice little combo!
Innokin Innocell C50 Batteries
Now here is the really exciting new technology that Innokin have developed.
The Innocell C50 Curve is a 2000 mAh Lipo battery that is recharged through a micro USB charger and attached to the Disrupter through the easy Slide and Click system.
The idea being that you can swap out a depleted battery for a fresh one easily (should you own more than one Innocell) and also customize the overall look of the unit with different colored Innocell’s.
There is also a Curve C50 Plus battery that offers 3300 mAh of power for increased battery life. It is a lot bigger but a great option for vapers that want to improve vape life between charges.
The Slide and Click system is a dream to use, it’s very easy to slide the Innocell out and a new one back in, and the two prongs present on the Disrupter mean that your Innocell holds firm with no wobble.

How Does The Innokin Disrupter Perform?
The Innokin Disrupter can output up to 50W, and support resistance down to 0.2ohm, so most of the popular sub ohm tanks are supported here.
However, with it only having a max output of 50W, coils in the 0.25ohm region are going to struggle, so you may need a different mod for the likes of the Sense Herakles, Uwell Crown and such, as these do need more than 50W to achieve the best performance.
Running the Disrupter at 40-50W means that the battery life is used up very quickly and you will need a recharge/ battery swap more regularly. This all does depend on your vaping habits and setup though.
Where the Disrupter really shines is with atomizers such as the Kangertech Subtank and the new iSub Apex tank, running it in the 25-35w range is ideal and you will get the vast majority of a full day’s vaping from the Innocell battery.
I have been getting around a day’s worth of vaping from the Innocell C50 battery however, the C50 Plus battery saw me through 2 days of moderate sub ohm vaping.
Thankfully, with the Slide and Lock system, you can swap batteries out quickly should you own more than one Innocell, and the Innocell can be charged up to full in a couple of hours via micro USB provided you have a good quality power source.
Power is outputted from the Disrupter very accurately, just like the MVP 3.0 Pro the Disrupter uses VRMS+ DC current, so provided that you are using an atomizer in the 0.2ohm-3.1ohm range power is extremely accurate with a maximum deviation of 0.5w, so power is efficient and accurate.
You can be sure that the power on screen is the power delivered to your atomiser!
Final Innokin Disrupter Review Verdict
I’m massively impressed with this new technology from Innokin. The Innocell is a huge new innovation from the Innokin team and a technology I’m sure a lot of Innokin’s competitors will be looking into.
The Slide and Lock system is a very easy system to use, there was plenty of scope for it to go wrong but Innokin have developed a rock solid system that is very user friendly and the options to go on from here are endless.
The addition of the larger C50 3300 mAh battery covers vapers that want the extra battery life, the only downside for more experienced vapers may be the 50W power output being on the small side. I’m very pleased with the initial technology and I think this is exciting times. A worthy entry in to our Best Box Mods of 2016 list.
There’s certainly scope here to really take this technology forward massively, I must applaud Innokin for bringing such a new and innovative product to market, that works very well indeed.
- New Innocell technology is a huge leap forward in battery technology
- Supports down to 0.2ohm so pretty much all the popular sub ohm tanks will work with it
- 50w is more than enough for the average vaper
- Slide and Click technology is great
- Superb form factor
- Looks really good
- OLED screen is excellent
- Feels really solidly made
- 510 spring loaded connector means no problems screwing in your atomisers
The Not So Good
- Although 50w is enough for the average vaper, coils with a resistance of 0.2-0.25 ohm need a little more power
