Finally A New Vape Pen For New Vapers – The Innokin Endura T18
UPDATE: New device is now available. Check out our Innokin Endura T18ii Review Here
It seems like starter kits have had a bit of a resurgence as of late, with many of the big name manufacturers entering this end of the market with their own starter kits, that offer far superior performance over the traditional cheap starter kit many of us started with.
I do indeed wish some of this stuff had been around when I first quit smoking, as it would have made it a whole lot easier that’s for sure!
Innokin’s latest entry is known as the Innokin Endura T18, which combines safety, power, and the latest big innovations from Innokin found in one simple, easy to use yet rewarding package.
The Endura promises to offer Innokin’s patented new PRISM top filling system, easy coil swapping, a 1000 mAh battery, fixed 14w output, a coil head based on the successful iClear 30 design, micro USB charging and coils with Japanese Organic Cotton wicking material for the best flavor around.
Innokin are one of the biggest manufacturers and are known for producing real quality kit, is the Endura T18 a starter kit that provides high end performance?
The Innokin Endura is designed as an ‘all in one’ ready to use kit, so much like the Kangertech Subvod everything you need to get going is included within the package, with the exception of juice. Inside the presentation box is-
- 1 x Innokin Endura Battery
- 1 x Prism tank
- 1 x Micro USB cable
- 2 x T18 1.5ohm replaceable coil heads
- 1 x Endura stand
- 1 x Spare set of O-rings
- 1 x User manual
Do take time to read and digest the user manual as it contains important safety and usage instructions.
The included vape stand is a really nice touch and allows you to show off your Endura when not using it!
The Endura kit will be available in a range of different colors, so you can pick one that matches your preferred color!
Innokin Endura Battery/Build and Quality
Straight away in the hand you can feel rock solid build quality from the Endura, this has come to be a standard hallmark of Innokin products.
It feels like a real quality piece of kit and the tank bears a strong resemblance to the Innokin iSub Apex tank in terms of the way it functions.
It’s filled from the top of the tank much like the Apex and features the new PRISM flavor system which enhances the airflow around the coil for the best flavor and vapor results.
Coils are really easy to swap out, as Innokin’s patented no spill coil swap system is in place here, so you simply slide out an old coil from the base and put in a fresh one.
The tank section is made out of solid Pyrex and should withstand most impacts but should you be unfortunate enough to break it, you’ll need a new one as no spare is included and the glass is not replaceable.
The Prism tank has a 2.5ml capacity which is by no means the largest, but with a 1.5ohm coil you shouldn’t need to refill this too often. For new vapers this size tank will be just fine and depending on your vaping habits should last most of the day.
You will quickly gauge how much e juice you go through each day so if you do find you’re draining the tank before you get home just be sure to carry either a spare tank or a little bottle of juice. The Endura tank is so easy to fill you can literally do it on the move.
The Endura battery features a 1000 mAh capacity and a fixed output of 14w, this can handle coil resistance down to 1.2ohms, so if you want to sub ohm vape this isn’t for you.
Thankfully there are safety features built in such as low resistance, low voltage, overcharge and overuse protection.
The battery itself is recharged via Micro USB with a nifty little base cover over the USB port that conceals the opening on the base. A micro USB charger is included within the package.
- 1000 mAh Battery
- 2.5ml Capacity
- Twist top cap for easy top filling
- T18 Prism Tank & 1.5 ohm coil head
- Coil head similar to the iclear30
- Japanese Organic Cotton
- No spill coil swap similar to the iSub tank range
- Top fill design
- Vape while charging
- Supplied with all the correct charging devices needed for safe use
How Does The Innokin Endura T18 Perform?
Innokin scored a real hit with the iSub Apex tank recently and the PRISM tank included in the kit is a scaled down version of this. It uses 1.5ohm coils and the flavor is absolutely outstanding- it’s a top, top atomizer tank for flavor.
The vapor production is very good too with nice clouds produced from the tank and a fairly loose draw from it as well. It’s a really enjoyable vape and possibly the best option out there for flavor with a vape pen starter kit!
The tank capacity is 2.5ml and with the 1.5ohm coils being fairly high resistance you get good mileage with your juice, you shouldn’t need to refill too often. Just be sure when filling to let the juice soak into the coils for 5 minutes before vaping.
I’ve found that the coils tend to last for just over a week before needing replacing, and there is a spare included in the package.The Endura battery has a relatively small capacity of 1000 mAh, this is a bit of a downside as even new and moderate vapers may find themselves needing to recharge this fairly often.
Thankfully that is an easy task with micro USB charging included and it does charge back up to full capacity quickly. Just ensure you do recharge from a safe power source!
The Endura battery puts out a fixed 14w to the coil, which is ample power for the 1.5ohm coil featured with the Prism tank. You only need to push the button and the battery does the rest!
Well starter kits have indeed come a long way since I first began vaping and the Innokin Endura T18 vape pen kit is definitely one of the best of the bunch. The flavor from this is absolutely outstanding and right on par with a lot of far more expensive tanks out there, and it can produce some pretty decent clouds as well.
It’s simple to use, low priced, a real user friendly option with no confusing menus and a device that you can pick up and use straight away, and gives you really good results too.
One I would definitely recommend to a beginner!
- ‘Fill and Vape’ e cigarette perfect for new vapers
- Amazing flavour from the PRISM tank
- Easy coil swap system with no mess
- Recharges quickly through micro USB
- Good mileage from your juice, tank isn’t particularly thirsty
- Respectable vapour production
- Super easy to fill from the top
- Simple to use
- Can handle high VG juices
The Not So Good
- Experienced vapers may find the vape from the Endura a little underwhelming but this isn’t necessarily made for those vapers
- 1000 mAh battery is a little on the small side and depending on your vaping habits may need frequent charging
- 2.5ml tank capacity is a little on the small side
