Introduction – The Trinity mod by Vapour2
The Vapour2 Trinity mod (Vapor2 outiside the UK) is one of the first vape mods by the US company V2. They have decided to go down the route of a mini mod for the stealth vapers amongst us.
The XEO Void was, overall, a very good device but have V2 succeeded in making an impact in this ever growing category of vape devices? Let’s take a closer look with our hands on review.

Design and Build Quality
The Vapour2 Trinity, like all the devices I’ve been lucky enough to try from V2, is excellent in terms of build quality. The soft touch rubberised coating finish feels very nice in the hand and the zinc alloy construction offers a nice weight, especially considering the size.
I have small hands but this mod completely disappears when I wrap my fingers around it. It’s tiny!
I received the blue version of the mod which is actually looks a lot better than I would’ve expected. There is also black available for those that don’t do blue!
The Vape mod features three buttons.
The fire button, again rubberised with a nice ‘click’ action, and the two function buttons marked with ‘+’ and ‘-‘. The latter are placed differently to most other mods I’ve used sitting on top of the device next to the tank.
The positioning, while a simple design difference, is actually a well thought out in terms of keeping them out of the way of accidental presses, especially when carrying in a pocket or bag.
The OLED screen is bright and easy to read, displaying (in standard mode) your wattage / resistance settings and remaining battery life.
Below the screen is the micro USB port and on the base of the mod ample ventilation holes.
The Vapor2 Trinity mod is simple in it’s looks, which for me is a good thing and a breath of fresh air with many new mods vying for attention in the crazy design stakes recently.
The Vapour2 tank compliments the mod well and sits on top seamlessly. The two airflow holes are big with a smooth action control to change your style of vape and the top fill cap screws off easily to refill.
On the outside it doesn’t look much different than your standard vape tank but things are a little different behind the glass.
The center chimney includes eliquid holes that can be closed off fully with a simple twist of the tank. We will go into the benefits of this a little later on.
How Does The Vapour2 Trinity Perform?
First lets have a quick look at the basic working functions of the mod and tank.
Quick Start To The Vapour2 Trinity mod
- 5 Clicks on/off
- Press power and ‘-‘ buttons together to enter menu
- Use ‘+’ and ‘-‘ function buttons to choose the setting you would like to change.
- Press power button to enter selected setting.
- Hands Mode Setting: flips the screen orientation
- Work Mode Setting – Choose between Power (wattage), Temp Control, Bypass
- Exit menu and use the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons to change your wattage or temperatures.
How to Change The Coil On The Vapour2 Tank
- Twist The base of the tank to separate from glass section
- Unscrew and replace coil. Firmly tighten but not too tight (Finger tight)
- Screw base back into tank
How To Refill The Vapour2 Trinity Tank
- Twist the tank anti-clockwise to close liquid holes
- Unscrew black mouthpiece
- Pour e-liquid in one of the two holes (not the center tub hole)
- Replace mouthpiece
- Open the e-liquid holes by twisting tank clockwise
- Wait at least 10 minutes for juice to soak into the coils.
When vaping for the first time do yourself a favour and start on a lower wattage just to be sure the coil is soaking up the e-liquid correctly. The Trinity tank, for me, takes a little longer than most to soak up. This could be down to the a mesh material on the inside of the tank covering the e-liquid intake holes.
If you start low you cut the chances of burning your coil straight off the bat. You can then work your way up the wattage selection until you hit your sweet spot.
I actually like the way you can close and open the e-liquid holes, especially when the tank is not in use, in your bag/pocket or left overnight. It cuts down the chances of leaking.
In fact, in two weeks of use I have experience no leaking whatsover, even when I had left the holes open and had the tank lying on it’s side. It pays to get into the habit though. If you want to cut the chances down further you can also close the airflow when not in use too.
I was vaping Razberi e-liquid by Froot, a flavour that is familiar to me and one I’ve been vaping in a number of tanks for a few weeks.
I tried a number of wattage settings with this coil but settled on 28 Watts. The flavour was decent but not outstanding. Coming through a little muted without the ping of the fruit flavours I’m used to. The clouds again were respectable but don’t expect this to be fogging up your room any time soon. Fine for me, I’m more about flavour rather than the clouds.
The draw is a lot more restricted than other sub ohm tanks I’ve used but lends itself well to those that like both a direct to lung and mouth to lung vape, albeit the latter is on the airier side.
This coil actually proved to be a lot better for me for flavour. Using the same 70VG/30PG e-liquid the coil had no problems keeping up. 26W was my sweet spot and with the airflow closed 3/4 the flavour was very good. Again, mouth to lung vaping is possible when closing down the airflow but it is an airy MTL vape.
Coil life was actually very impressive with the 0.8Ohm lasting me a good couple of weeks with moderate vaping. The 1.2Ohm is going strong after numerous refills.
As with all mini mods battery life is going to suffer and the Triniy is no different. The mod manages to squeeze in a 1200mAh capacity battery which is a decent size for a mini mod.
When vaping at 25W+. I was getting around 4 hours of moderate vaping before I needed to re-charge. You may get slightly more or less depending on how you vape and your wattage settings.
Charging is simple, plug in the Micro USB to a compatible output and away you go. One thing to keep in mind is that there is no pass through vaping functionality. This basically means you can’t vape whilst charging.
Overall the performance was good.
What I Like
The quality of the Vapour2 Trinity mod is excellent, very solid for such a small device. With the mod being so small it fits into the palm of your hand easily making it a very portable mod to carry around.
It’s also very simple to operate, even for new vapers that have never used a vape mod before.
Flavour is good from the 1.2Ohm coil, coil life is excellent. The top fill function and the ability to change the coil without emptying your tank is great. As is the way you can close the e-liquid holes to cut down on the chances of leaking, of which I had zero over the weeks I use the device.
What I Don’t Like
The battery life isn’t great but that really is to be expected from a mod this small.
The flavour with the 0.8Ohm coil was muted with the e-juice I used for testing. It would have been nice to see a vape whilst charging functionality. If this is your only e cigarette then you will need to disconnect when taking a vape. Not a huge deal and I guess Vapour2 are edging on the side of caution by not including it.
The final thing is the price, this is one of the more expensive mini mod kits on the market.
Final Review Verdict
The Vapour2 Trinity kit is on the whole a very solid little offering. If you are looking for a kit that is compact, quality and easy to throw in your pocket or bag then this is as good a choice as any if it’s in your budget.
Would I buy the Vapour2 Trinity mod again if lost or broken? Based on the price, no.
- Excellent build quality
- Pocket friendly
- Good beginner mod
- Easy to fill
- Flavour very good with 1.2Ohm coil
- Leak free in my few weeks of use
- One of the more pricey kits
- Flavour just OK with 0.8Ohm coil
- Battery life average (to be expected given size of mod)
