This time I’m taking a look at the new Freemax Maxus Solo 100 Kit, the latest edition to the Maxus range of kits.

Established 2013 in China, Freemax have bought us many quality devices such as the Twister 80W Kit, Twister 30W Kit and of course the Maxus range which include the Maxus 100Maxus 200Maxus 50 and Maxus Max 168W, and tanks like Fireluke range and one of my favourites the Mesh Pro sub ohm tank!

What Can We Expect From the Freemax Maxus Solo Kit?

We are promised a “Full spectrum” vaping experience and the Maxus Solo is powered up to 100W with your choice of battery.

The large colour OLED screen has extensive menu options including light control and unique RGB options! The OLED screen allows you to view the chipset and board. The device runs fast with the new “FMOS 3.0” and “FM Chip”.

Freemax have paired this device with the Fireluke Solo, a 28mm sub ohm tank that gives a consistent flavour and vapour quality!

The Freemax Maxus Solo Kit is available in 6 colours: Cobalt Blue, Black, Sea Blue, Golden, Gunmetal and Red.

This kit was sent to me directly by Freemax for the purpose of review.

As always my thoughts and views are my own after a considerable testing period.

The 510 connection for this device has been placed under a top plate that is been screwed in to position by 4 hatch screws. The stainless steel connection threading has been turned well and incorporates a spring loaded gold plated connection pin.

Maxus Solo Mod Workface

It has a large 1.06” colour OLED screen that displays all the normal info, the screen also allows you to see the chipset and inner workings of the device. When lit up the device reminds me somewhat of a miniaturised computer tower!

Both the fire and adjustment buttons are plastic, each have a nice click. The device has a Type C charge port that is rated at 2A.

On the back of the device there is a dark plastic rounded panel that is printed with ”Maxus Solo” in rather a large font – the LED lights can be seen through this panel when on.

Maxus Solo Mod Battery Door

On the base of the device you have a slide flip door, which doesn’t have any wiggle to it when open.

Inside of the door is the printed safety marks, and looking in to the battery bay there is a red cross for battery orientation.

Freemax Fireluke Solo Tank

My (TPD) tank holds 2ml of liquid but the standard version will hold 5ml with a bubble glass.

Constructed of black coated stainless steel, Pyrex and Delrin the tank dissembles into 5 parts for easy cleaning!

Two “plug n play” coils have been included with the kit, both coils are the new FL range, which have been constructed using military grade SS904L mesh and tea fibre cotton.

  • FL1-D Mesh 0.15ohm coil (installed) 50 to 80W
  • FL2 dual Mesh 0.2ohm coil 50 to 80W

Freemax Maxus Solo Kit coil headsThe tank is child resistant – to fill find the word “Freemax”, lift the ring and push it open. BTW the fill port is fairly wide and the airflow for this tank has wide dual airflow slots.

Both the mod and the tank have high manufacturing quality with a great design!

How Does the Freemax Maxus Solo Kit Perform?

In this review I will be using the installed 0.15ohm coil in the Fireluke Solo Tank and topping it up with Kwik Vape “Lime Slushie”.

Basic Quick Start Guide

Freemax Solo Tank

  • Before 1st firing Pre wick your coil, do this by adding a few drops of liquid on to the cotton!Freemax Maxus Solo Kit prep coil
  • Push the coil in to the tank and re screw on the base – close the airflow
  • Lift the child ring and push open, fill with e-liquid and leave the tank for couple of minutes before firing so the coil can soak up more liquid.Freemax Maxus Solo Kit tank fill

Screw on to the mod and open the airflow and you’re ready to go!

Freemax Maxus Solo Mod

  • Place your battery into the device – positive end down!Freemax Maxus Solo Kit 21700

You can charge the battery via the type C USB port, but as always I recommend using a standalone charger.

  • Click the fire button x5 fast to turn the device on and offFreemax Maxus Solo Kit 50w green

Adjustment buttons

When in temperature control you can select which wire coil you are using from SS316L, Ni and Ti.

This device will adjust from 5 to 100W in 5W increments and 200 to 600°F / 100 to 315°C with no round robin.

  • Holding down both adjustment buttons together will lock and unlock the adjustment buttons however the device will still fire!
  • To lock the device or put it into sleep mode use the side slide switch.Freemax Maxus Solo Kit fm3 protections

Freemax Maxus Solo Kit – In Use

Normally I think that devices with lights are tacky and a waste of battery power. I tend to turn LED’s off at the first opportunity lol, however with this mod I’ve had to re-evaluate my thinking a wee bit!

Freemax Maxus Solo Kit – Lights

I tested the kit with the lights always on as well as breathing and flashing modes, I found there was no discernible power drop in any of the light modes compared to turning them off!

BTW the mod will put itself into hibernation after 30 seconds of inactivity.

This device functions just as described by Freemax. I’ve got to say I am fascinated by not only the LED lights but with the menu option “RGB” (make your own colours).

Freemax Maxus Solo Kit – Wattage

I’m not much for high wattage vaping and tend to stay around 50/65W, using the Fireluke Solo at these wattages I get a nice warm vape with great clouds; the flavour isn’t too bad either.

Freemax Maxus Solo Kit ready to use1

I swapped the Fireluke Solo for my Oxva Arbiter Solo RTA so I could test a mouth to lung style draw, between 18 and 25W the flavour was banging!

Temperature Control

I don’t use temp control these days; however in the interest of fair play I tested the device in TC SS mode at 420°F at 60W with SS316L wire in my Hellvape Passage RDA. As expected the flavour was good with a cloudy vapour production!

Battery Life

At 50W Direct to Lung (DTL) I get around 4 hours vape time with a 21700 battery and with the lights on!

Chain vaping with the kit, both the tank and mod do become a little warm.

With Mouth to Lung (MTL) at 25W a 21700 battery lasted all day and a couple of hours into the next day!

Freemax Maxus Solo Kit shot night 50w

The 2ml fill capacity of the Fireluke Solo I have to say is a right royal pain in the derrière! If I vape at 60W the Solo tank empties out really fast and I spend half my time filling it lol, so I tend to turn the wattage down to around 50W. I’m looking forward to getting the 5ml bubble glass lol.

Pros

Mod

  • Good Quality
  • Excellent Design
  • Excellent battery life (MTL)
  • RGB lights
  • Side slide switch

Tank

  • Good flavour and vapour quality
  • Well designed with good quality

Cons

No concerns with this kit, however if pushed I’d focus on

  • The 2ml fill capacity of the Fireluke Solo Tank.

Final Review Verdict

A fun and fashionable kit, the LED lights are great fun to play with! The menu system is simple and easy to navigate.

The Fireluke Solo tank while not really my type of topper – (I prefer RDA’s or RTA’s) does gives good flavour and great vapour production! The 810 mouth piece is a little tall for my liking but that can be easily solved by changing the tip!

Would I recommend the Freemax Maxus Solo Kit?

A simple fun easy to use kit, so this is an easy recommendation by me!

Would I buy this device again due loss or damage?

I haven’t put the kit down much since receiving it from Freemax, I love it!

The weight is just right and it functions great, so “Yes” I would definitely be seeking to buy another kit!

Hi my name is Kevin, I started vaping back in 2009 mainly because my little boy at 3 years old was starting to copy the way daddy smoked a cigarette! Over the years I have gained a good amount of experience with different types of vaping hardware but I'm just a normal guy who enjoys sharing my experiences. This is why I started my Youtube vape review channel in 2014. To date the channel has had over 500,000 views. Being disabled, vaping has given me a gateway to meeting people from all different walks of life, many of those I would not have met under other circumstances. The way I look at my reviews is, if I can convince just one person to give up the stinky’s my job is done. I class myself as a tinkerer as I like to take things apart to see how they work and put them back together, yes that includes e-cigarette mods! One day I would like to be able to design my own mod. I am a dedicated father, and husband to my sweetheart of nearly 30 years! Family to me comes before anything else.
