Woohoo – A proper kit – not a pod mod – meet the new Augvape VX217 Kit!Augvape VX217 Kit

I do love Augvape and still own the V200 and Vtec mods – so let’s hope this kit is up to the same high standards!

More Details On the Augvape VX217 Kit…

The kit consists of the VX217 mod and the new Intake Sub ohm tank. I will be covering the tank in another preview – so here I will just concentrate on the actual mod.Augvape VX217 Kit components

Like I said above the ancestors of this mod are the V200 and the Vtec mods. Following on from those Augvape released the VX200 which was a lightweight version which some found slightly disappointing.Augvape VX217 Kit in hand

Augvape themselves state that the VX217 is the upgrade to the VX200 but made of Zinc Alloy to make it more “solid”.Augvape VX217 Kit quote

So as the name suggests this mod uses 2×21700 batteries which are not included. You can also use 20700 or with the included adaptors 18650 as well.

Output wise this has a maximum output of 217W – I assume this is achieved using high capacity 21700 batteries. Also this mod will reach 12V – could I run my car stereo off it? Being serious though even some of the higher output mods can only reach 8V which is still pretty high!Augvape VX217 Kit  12v

On the front of the mod is the 1.3in colour display which also has plenty of colour themes to customise the appearance.vx217 screen

Above that is the fire button and below is the spin dial used for scrolling through menus. Below the dial is the type C USB port.vx217 dial

Let me know your thoughts on the Augvape VX217 Kit in the comments below.

My name is Michelle - I am 45 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!


    • It’s not on pre-order yet so could be a couple of weeks at least – as soon as I get a pre-order link I’ll pop it up 🙂

  1. Contrary to many people I’ve always liked mods with nice decently sized screens, it’s more of a superficial thing but dunno, they’ve always attracted me, like I have a vaporesso polar, smoant naboo and smok morph too. I do like the look of it, is that it won’t accomadate bigger tanks like anything above 25mm which is a shame but most of the popular subohm tanks are 25mm. Will look forward to a review of this at some point
