The Desire Design More Pro pod system is from a brand that have been around since 2011 and have been pretty consistent in producing some arguably good bits of kit.
From the Rage 200w regulated squonk mod to the Squonky bottom fed, sub ohm mesh tank, the Bulldog tank and the Cut Premium 220w, we’ve definitely seen some innovation and good quality vape gear from these guys.
What Can We Expect From The More Pro by Desire Design?
The More Pro is a pod system made from aluminium with a 1000mAh battery. It’s finish is a “hard prototype oxidation technology” which makes it tough and able to keep up with everyday life without the paint peeling or chipping.
Featuring a 2ml capacity pod which houses a Stainless Steel 1.2ohm coil, will the Desire Designs More Pro fulfil all my pod vaping desires? Let’s find out!
Thank you to Desire Design for sending me the More Pro for review. As always, all opinions are from my own testing of the device.

Design and Build Quality
The Desire Design More Pro comes nicely packaged with all the usual bits and bobs you’d expect to find in the box.
I received the red colour which is absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful finish.
The aluminium body is really lightweight but has a good solid and sturdy feel to it. It doesn’t feel like I’d dent it or damage it from a simple drop.
The overall look of the kit is super sleek and very pocket friendly in size, being just slightly bigger than an 18650 battery.
The More Pro has one button which is used to fire the mod and to turn the device off and on. The button is encircled by a pretty bright, 3 colour LED.
On the left hand side of the mod you will find the micro USB charge port.
The pods are secured into the main housing with two fairly strong magnets. I haven’t had the pod dislodge accidentally at any point and it feels really secure.
Each pod will hold 2ml of e-liquid and has a Stainless Steel 1.2 ohm coil.
I really like the shape of the pods as they’re really easy to grip and remove for filling but also very comfortable to vape on.
Each pod also comes with its own little rubber stopper to help prevent any pocket fluff or dirt from collecting inside the mouthpiece. I’m glad it comes with each pod though as I’ve already lost one!
I’ve got zero complaints about how the More Pro looks and feels. It looks great with minimal branding and the overall fit and finish is pretty much perfect.

How To Change the Pod and Refill
- Locate the rubber stopper on the side of your new pod.
- Open the and fill it up with your favourite e-liquid.
- Leave the pod to stand for around 3 – 5 minutes to allow the cotton to fully saturate and prevent your coil from burning out too soon.

- That’s it. Just press the button to vape!
- Charging the More Pro is super simple.
- Plug the included micro USB cable into a suitable outlet and then into your device.
- Mine has been taking around an hour to charge from under 30% to full.
- The LED will show red for under 30%, yellow for 70 – 30% and green for 70% + but will turn off completely once the device is fully charged.
How Does the Desire Designs More Pro Perform?
For this review I’ve been using Pacha Mama Salts in Honeydew Melon which is 50/50 VG/PG and 10mg in nicotine strength but I’ve also tried it with some 70/30 VG/PG to see if the pod could handle it.
The Desire Design More Pro is button activated and really simple to use. The position of the button is really comfortable and has a satisfying click when you press it.
For me, this is the perfect Mouth to Lung (MTL) vape. There’s enough restriction to give you the feeling of pulling on a cigarette but not so much that you’re drawing your cheeks together to get any vape from it.
You can, at a push, take short Direct to Lung (DTL) vapes if you want to but in my opinion, it’s more suited to MTL.
The pods wick really well. There’s no over saturation giving you liquid on your tongue and even chain vaping, I’ve yet to have a dry hit. Even when I filled up with 70/30 VG/PG.
Again, no complaints from me on performance. The More Pro has never missed a beat in the time I’ve been using it.
Flavour and Clouds
I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that the More Pro is the best pod kit for flavour that I’ve tried so far. The Honeydew Melon is smooth and super sweet and even my favourite Apple Jam tasted spot on. I cannot fault the flavour this little guy is chucking out.
Clouds aren’t huge as you’d expect from a pod system but the More Pro provides a respectable amount of vapour that won’t disappoint. I’m sure the trickers amongst you could easily manage to blow few ‘Os’.
Desire Designs say 4 – 6 fills before changing the pod but after 2 weeks of usage and 4 – 5 fills, I’d be inclined to believe you’ll get more than that before this little pod gives up.
Mine’s certainly showing no signs of giving up just yet.
Using the Desire More Pro alongside my go-to direct to lung (DTL) 3mg set ups, I can get around 2 days, maybe a little more, before I need to charge it. Very respectable for a pod of its size. And with it only taking about an hour to charge, you can’t really complain.
- Great flavour
- Great battery life
- Good vapour production
- Charges quickly
- Sleek and stylish design
- Feels good in the hand
- Great build quality
- No leaking
- Easy to fill
- Good pod life
Final Review Verdict
I tried really, really hard to come up with a con for the Desire Designs More Pro. Even just one little niggly point but I couldn’t.
From its clean and beautiful finish to the fantastic flavour, I just can’t fault it.
Everything about the More Pro feels high quality and it’s quite quickly taken the top spot as my favourite pod system.
If you’re looking for a solid little pod system that’s lightweight, durable and easy on the eye whilst still providing great flavour then I can’t recommend the More Pro any more highly!
Plus at around £20 (at the time of review) and with two pods included, it’s not going to break the bank.
If I lost it tomorrow I’d definitely replace and to be honest, I’m probably going to buy myself another one. Just in case!
