They say, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it…improve it…and that’s certainly the case with the ePuffer TITAN X 2021 vape pen kit.
I reviewed the original ePuffer Titan last January and was pretty impressed – good build – good flavour and as pen kits go, a contemporary design.
As to how ePuffer has improved the new version will shall see.
OK, ePuffer is a UK based vape manufacturer and began with the back in the day impressive Epuffer Magnum Snaps – a funky little cig-a-lite…ah the memories lol.
Epuffer has released many other products, including cigars which I really like the look of – but the three vape kits I’ve mentioned are the only ones we’ve reviewed.
What Can We Expect From the ePuffer Titan X 2021?
The ePuffer Titan X 2021 vape kit is a pen style and the company describes it as a ‘hybrid‘.
In simple terms that means it can switch from a mouth to lung vape to sub ohm by swapping out the coils – as to if that works, we shall see.
It has a built in battery with fast charging, the tank is a top fill and there’s dual airflow.
So with all that in mind, I’m hoping for good flavour and clouds, coil and battery longevity and of course how it switches between vaping styles.
Epuffer told me the improvements made came from customer feedback [great to see] and upgrades to the original include:
- 1. Added a USB Type-C connection – The battery is now charging in less
than 1 hour.
- 2. Updated software to provide a better support for 0.4 DTL coil.
- 3. Improved 1.0ohm and 0.4ohm coils (more vapour, better flavour).
- 4. Modified a mouthpiece and installed a non removable rubber gasket.
- 5. The logo on power button is now imprinted from inside, so it will not
fade over time.
The Titan X 2021 was sent to me direct from the company for the purpose of this review – thank you – and always my thoughts and opinions are not swayed by freebies…
Right, let’s see if I’m over the moon vaping on this one, and if it is indeed, a Titan among vapes…
Inside the Box
A sturdy plastic box and inside you’ll find:
- A rechargeable battery with a capacity of 1500 mAh
- TITAN X Glass Tank liquimizer
- An atomizer coil with an electric resistance of 1.0 ohm
- An atomizer coil with an electric resistance of 0.4 ohm
- A micro USB charging cable
- An easy-to-follow user guide
- Tank Capacity: 2ML ( Glass ) TPD Ready
- Material: High Grade Triple Polished Stainless Steel
- Power: 50 Watts – Inteli Sense Micro Controller
- Ø=19mm Length: 130mm
- Weight: 95g
Without stating the obvious, this is a pen style vape kit that can switch from MTL to DTL vaping, thanks to the 2 types of coil available.
It has a 1500 mAH internal battery – with Type C fast charging – and can kick out a max of 50w. There’s no screen or up and down buttons to change wattage, instead the Inteli Sense Micro Controller within the chip checks the coil and sets the wattage accordingly.
The top fill tank is a TPD friendly 2ml capacity, is made from glass [covered by a protective frame] and part of the upgrade is a stainless steel mesh splash guard meant to stop spit-back.
There’s a dual cyclops airflow on the bottom of the tank, with a wide open slot rather than any honeycomb or holes that reduce in size.
So, it all looks good on paper, we’ll see in a moment how the Epuffer TITAN X 2021 vapes.
Design and Build Quality
Apart from the glass tank, the rest of the TITAN X 2021 vape kit is made from polished stainless steel.
They say polished, up close it has a kind of minimalist brushed stainless steel look about it, so it’s not shiny to the point of being a blingy fingerprint magnet – that’s a good thing!
The drip tip can’t be removed – I have tried so it might be my weak wrists – and is rather elongated but comfortable enough.
The moving parts are in general OK, the top cap screws off nicely [the fill ports are a little small] with nice threads, and it’s the same with the threads on the coil and tank to battery.
One bugbear is the airflow control – once screwed onto the mod it’s a bugger to move and you do end up unscrewing the tank, as I have a number of times. Even now and fully lubed up with vape juice, it’s stiffer than my joints after a 10 mile hike…that’s really stiff BTW 😉
Overall it is very well made and design wise does look on the badass side of good.
So all good so far, let’s see how it performs.
Epuffer TITAN X 2021 Quick Start Guide
- x5 clicks of the fire button on and off
- Unscrew base of tank to swap coils
- Unscrew top cap to fill
Dead simple or what!
How Does the Epuffer TITAN X 2021 Perform?
Given the kit can switch between MTL and DTL, I’ll break it down into the two coils.
For the MTL coil I used SuperGood Cocktail Selection nic salt Peach Bellini – bloody lovely stuff.
1.0 ohm Coil
I obviously used the nic salt on this one…me being Captain Obvious again…
The fill ports were just about wide enough to fit the nozzle – the same can’t be said for bigger shortfill bottles.
OK after priming the coil, I let it sit for a good 10 minutes. For newbies, priming is extremely important on stock coils as it allows the vape juice to completely soak the cotton, so avoiding dry hits and ruining your coil – see the link for more info.
OK first vape, and it was impressive.
I had the airflow half open and got a very nice semi-restricted vape. On a scale of 1:10 with 10 being the airiest it was about a 6. Obviously closed right off and this is one hell of a tight MTL vape.
Flavour was good too at around a 7.5 and up to an 8 once the coil had broken in and got a couple of re-fills – not bad clouds either if that’s your thing.
The coil wicked well and no leaks whatsoever – even left on its side over night.
0.4 ohm Coil
This coil is designed for sub ohm vaping and hopefully chucking clouds.
Wide open and this was a very airy vape right up there at a 9+ – a bit to airy for me and like do like my vapes on the looser side.
Again and with the airflow half closed, the vape was spot on with the tiniest bit of restriction, however the vapour wasn’t anything to write home about.
Yes there’s clouds, but if that’s what you’re into this is no cloud chucker.
Flavour wise, I know this vape juice very well, it was OK and on the good side of the scale…not amazing, but certainly tasty.
Again the coil wicked well, even after chain vaping, and again there was no leakage left overnight.
- Well built
- Contemporary design
- x2 styles of vaping
- Dead simple to use
- Good flavour
- Fast charging
- Great battery life
- A little noisy
- Airflow control ring very stiff
Final Review Verdict
Vape pen kits are still very much in vogue and the Epuffer TITAN X 2021 style wise certainly looks the part.
It’s chunky and rugged, feels weighty in the hand, and is solidly built.
There’s no doubt the chip makes it dead simple for the absolute beginner to vaping, whilst the choice of coils will enable the vaping style to grow.
Not that many vape kits can pull off a proper MTL and DTL experience simply by switching out the coil, but the 2021 kit certainly achieves this and does it very well too.
It is a little on the noisy side and a cloud chucker this ain’t even with the extra wrap on the sub ohm coil, but that isn’t my thing so no biggie.
I’m all about the flavour, and with both coils the TITAN X 2021 is definitely in the better than good range.
So…is this a vape kit you’ve bought and been using or planning to buy?
