The Innokin Endura T22 Pro Kit is the latest release in the successful and very popular Endura range of starter kits.
Even though we have a lot of great starter pod kits on the market now – for simplicity and performance I still recommend the Endura range to people who want a faff free vape to get them off the ciggies.
With the T22 Pro kit bearing the “Endura” badge it has some pedigree to fulfill – will it be an excellent addition to an already brilliant range?
What Can We Expect From The Innokin Endura T22 Pro Kit?
We this kit is based on the Innokin Endura T22 kit but with some updates…
For a start the mod has a lot of extra features without being too complicated to put new vapers off.
Inside the mod is a 3000mAh battery which you charge using the on board USB Type C port.
You can charge at up to a 2A charge rate using a suitable adaptor which means this should charge a lot quicker than the older Micro USB kits.
There is a fire button which also has an LED indicator which informs of the battery capacity remaining by changing colour.
Instead of a screen there are 4 LED indicators below the fire button to display the selected power level – I will talk more about these in the Basic Operation section.
Included in the kit is the new T18E Pro tank which uses the T18 range of coils – I will again go into detail which coils are compatible further in the review.
There are 6 colours to choose from: Matte Black, Steel Grey, Ruby Red, Royal Blue, Rose Gold and Brushed Silver.
Thank you to Innokin for sending me these for review – I will report back honestly on my findings of the devices I have received.

Innokin Endura T22 Pro Kit Design and Build Quality
I received the T22 Pro Kit in the Rose Gold and Ruby Red colours.
As I am a Pinkophile obviously I was drawn to the Rose Gold device!
Both kits arrived in perfect condition in fully recyclable packaging.
As usual with Innokin the instructions are great – one function missing is the colour code of the fire button for battery life when the device is not charging?
My first impression upon removing the device, tank and assembling is what a classy looking kit this is…stunning!
I would also like to say how grateful I am for the additional coils supplied with my review kits – this means I can test all coils available!
Innokin Endura T22 Pro Mod
This is beautiful!
The body has a metallic pearlescent finish and looks amazing.
The top and bottom faces of the mod match the tank finish – in my case Gunmetal and Silver – and this finish extends around the sides of the mod too.
One huge surprise was the manual “On/Off” switch on the base of the mod. This should make the mod appeal to a lot of people who get sick of their devices firing by accident in pockets and bags.
Starting at the top of the mod the 510 connection plate is made of metal and you should be able to use a tank of 22mm diameter or less.
At the side of the 510 plate are 2 Torx head screws.
The profile of the mod is a kind of “U” shape with the display side flattened.
One side of the mod has “Endura T22 Pro” printed in white and the other side has the “Innokin” logo.
The branding is pretty minimal and stands out more on the red mod than it does on the rose gold mod.
The base of the mod features the slide switch, battery specification and legal logos surrounded by 4 rubber pads which I assume are to aid standing the device up – nice touch!
These pads also mean the mod doesn’t clonk when you put it on a hard surface – having glass tables this is something that I appreciate a lot!
Innokin Endura T22 Pro Display Panel
On the display side you have the square fire button which is nice and clicky and responsive.
This despite looking like it is made from metal actually lights up in green, red or yellow depending on the battery charge remaining.
The light is super bright and looks great!
The metal finish is deceiving!
Below the fire button are the 4 power level LEDs – these light up according to which power level you have set, again these are clear and bright.
Below the power level LEDs is the power adjustment button, this has the same silver finish as the fire button and you press and hold this to change the power level.
Finally on the display side is the USB Type C port I had no issues at all charging.
Prism T18E Pro Tank
This is very similar to the original Prism T18 tank except for a few nice updates.
Firstly you now have a slide top fill cap – there are 2 chamfered areas on the top cap and the one area has a double arrow logo to indicate where to push the cap across.
The slide cap is easy enough to slide but there is some resistance so I do feel it would be unlikely to accidentally slide open.
Even if it did a silicone check valve on the fill port should prevent the majority of the e-liquid escaping.
I actually slid the top cap open and tipped the tank upside down for a few minutes and the check valve did its job and not a single drip came out! Good Boy T18E Pro!
The fill port check valve opens to approx 5mm long and 2mm wide – if you find it awkward it may be easier to remove the drip tip when filling.
The tank had the Ultem colour drip tip installed which looked super ugly and spoiled the look of such a pretty kit.
Thankfully Innokin provide a plain black drip tip too.
The standard 510 drip tip connection meant I could use other 510 drip tips on here and I love my own pink one coupled with the Rose Gold kit!
On the front of the tank is the Prism logo and the T18E Pro branding in white.
This is more noticeable on the Gunmetal tank on the red kit. On the rose gold kit the tank is silver and you can hardly see the branding.
4 windows surround the outside of the tank giving a clear view of the liquid level and it is that clear a view you can even see the coil resistance!
One down side with this design is if you break one of these windows you cannot replace the glass – so the tank is sadly bin bound.
The screw off tank base looks amazing – you can hardly see where it joins the main tank at all.
In fact when I first looked at it I wasn’t even sure if the base screwed off like previous versions as it looked to be all one piece – epic design and quality!
On the base is the Innokin logo and the required legal logos.
The 510 connection is actually the base of the coil.
A nice looking tank – looks a bit tall for its 20mm diameter but still quite classy.
Innokin Endura T22 Pro – T18E Pro Coil Options
Now when it comes to coils you have quite a few options…
Firstly when it says you can use T18 coils – it does mean the T18E version – as you can see below the standard T18 version is longer – whereas the E version has only 3 juice inlet holes.
If you buy the wrong type they will not fit.
Included in the kit are the Endura Pro T18E 1.7ohm coil and the T18E 1.5ohm coil.
You can also purchase the M18 1.6ohm coil which is also compatible with the Endura M18 kit.
Innokin Endura T22 Pro Kit Quick Start Guide
The device arrives with the tank and mod separate so you need to screw the tank onto the mod, fill and charge and away you go!
I tell you all about getting started below.
Innokin Endura T22 Pro – Basic Operation
- Turn On = slide the switch on the base of the mod to “ON” and press the fire button 3 times.
- Turn Off = either press fire button 3 times or slide the switch on the base of the mod to the “OFF” position
- LED Battery indicator = changes from Green to Orange to Red- but the % at which this colour changes is not specified.
- LED Indicator When charging = the fire button indicator colour displays how much battery charge is remaining – 0-90% = Red LED, higher than 90% = Green LED and when fully charged the LED will go out.
- Adjust power = press and hold the wattage selection button until the required number of LEDs are lit – see diagram below.
- Power level indication = see the above diagram as to which LEDs are lit for each power level.
- Vaping = with the device turned on press the fire button to vape.
Innokin Endura T22 Pro – Protections
- Low battery – the LED will flash 8 times
- Short circuit – the LED will light up fully for 5 seconds – check coil and connections
- Open circuit – the LED will flash when the fire button is pressed – make sure tank and coil are correctly installed.
- Over time – the LED will flash 10 times in a row and the fire operation will cut out.
- High temperature – the LED will flash 3 times twice – wait until the device has cooled down
How To Charge The Battery
- Using the included USB C cable connect the small end into the USB port on the mod.
- Connect the large end of the cable into a suitable USB outlet.
- The fire button LED will go out when the mod is fully charged.
This is capable of charging at up to a 2A charge rate depending on charging cable and supply method.
I.e. an old PC USB port only outputs around 0.5A whereas some of the modern charging plug adaptors and charging stations can output up to 2A.
Using a 2A charging plug it took to around 2 hours to charge fully.
How To Fill the Innokin Endura T22 Pro
It is worth noting you really need to keep on top of the e-liquid level – anything below approximately 1/4 full will likely result in burning out the coil.
..I know as I did this myself!
- Locate the arrow marking on the top cap.
- Slide the cap to reveal the fill port.
- Push the nozzle of the e-liquid bottle into the check valve cover on the fill port and observe the liquid level through the tank windows.
- Slide the tank cap back into the closed position.
- For a new coil or first time use leave it to stand for 10 minutes for the coil to absorb the e-liquid.
Innokin Endura T22 Pro – How To Replace the Coil
- It is best to empty the tank prior to changing the coil or at least have some tissue in the area as it is likely to dump out its liquid. However I did find lying the tank on its side when removing the coil didn’t spill as much liquid. Even turning the tank upside down resulted in liquid spewing out of the drip tip – so bear this in mind!
- Remove the tank from the mod.
- Unscrew the tank base anticlockwise.
- Pull the coil from the tank.
- Install a new coil making sure the straight edges in the coil base align with the straight edges in the tank as shown.
- Replace the tank base.
- Fill the tank as described above and for a new coil or first time use leave it to stand for 10 minutes for the coil to absorb the e-liquid.
- Replace the tank onto the mod.
How Does the Innokin Endura T22 Pro Kit Perform?
As this is a MTL kit I am using my usual MTL e-liquid – 11mg Nicotine CrazySaltzzz in Bubblegum. This is a 50/50 VG/PG mixture.

I will try each coil on every power setting…
1.7ohm Coil (Included In Kit)
This is the new coil for the T18 Pro tank – not found in previous kits.
9.5W – even at this low power there is a nice little crackle of the e-liquid heating up and the flavour is definitely there – no warmth or and minimal throat hit. Very gentle but still tasty.
11W – this is already warmer and the taste is stronger. Slightly drier vapour too and a noticeable but gentle throat hit.
12.5W – I am already taking a lot shorter vapes on this setting as the throat hit really kicks in and so does the vapour production. The taste is still similar to the 11W setting.
13.5W – so this is slightly warmer and drier again – the throat hit is similar to the 12.5W setting but this does dry my mouth out a bit at this setting.
For me I really like this coil at 11W – not too dry but still enough flavour. The 12.5 / 13.5W settings were a bit heavier throat hit than I am used to.
1.5ohm Coil (Included In Kit)
This is one of the original T18E coils found in the original T18, T18-II and T18-II Mini kits.
This is the coil with the 3 holes located vertically up the side of the coil.
In the past there have been issues with these coils leaking as the cotton can sag down the coil.
I have used pins to pull the cotton more equally around the wicking holes when I had these issues in the past.
9.5W – Very gentle not as flavour-full as the 1.7ohm coil at this power level. Feels a lot lower powered and the airflow is tighter still.
11W – You can tell the power is slightly higher as you are starting to hear a slight crackle and there is more flavour but a bit underwhelming at this setting still.
12.5W – Now we are talking – this is the taste I remember fondly – there is more throat hit and this is a lot warmer than the 1.7ohm coil.
13.5W – This is a lot warmer again and the flavour is good – but there is still a tinge of “cotton” taste which I didn’t get with the 1.7ohm coil at all.
This coil is weaker for me than the 1.7ohm which is a surprise as this should be a better vape as it is lower resistance.
I do think this is old coil technology compared to the newer 1.7ohm coil – it is the weaker of the 2 coils included.
However this coil has always been a solid performer in older kits – it is just that this time it has been upstaged by the newer coils available.
1.6ohm M18 Coil (Available Separately)
Innokin kindly also supplied me with a pack of these coils so I could use the T22 Pro Kit in all variations!
This coil was created for the Endura M18 pod kit but is also compatible with some of the other tanks in the Endura range – I have not tried this coil in the past so let’s see if it is a goodun!
9.5W – quite a weak output – there is flavour and a tiny amount of vapour.
11W – this feels like a huge jump from 9.5W setting and the flavour and throat hit increase a lot. Still feels like it is crying out for a little more power!
12.5W – for me this setting with this coil is the optimum performance for the whole kit I love it. Plenty of flavour, plenty of throat hit and a good warm vapour. At times this felt a bit hot if I didn’t have the drip tip in my mouth far enough – so if you find it is too warm put the tip a bit further into your lips to shield them. Man that whole sentence just sounds like filth…
13.5W – this is slightly warmer and quite dry I would imagine this setting would result in a lower coil life. Not as enjoyable as the 12.5W setting.
Innokin Endura T22 Pro Coil Summary
My favourite by far is the 1.6ohm M18 coil – it is such a performer for flavour and throat hit.
Secondly the new 1.7ohm coil is not far behind at all.
The weakest coil of the three is the old 1.5ohm coil – which I think could be retired now.
It was a great coil when it came out and even still shone in newer kits, but the 1.6 and 1.7 ohm coils really have raced ahead in performance.
Also the 1.5ohm coil has the weakness of the 3 wicking holes and the cotton sagging issue.
Although the 1.5ohm is still a good coil – I think the kit should just focus on the other two coils and leave the 1.5ohm behind.
If you have a stash of these coils already they still perform great in this kit and are always decent if your local vape store doesn’t have the newer coils in stock.
One thing I did notice was this tank can be a bit thirstier than my usual pod kit (Innokin Sceptre) – for one whole battery cycle I had refilled the tank over 10 times.
The coils in this are huge though so I would expect 1ml of liquid to be hiding within the cotton in there!
Do please keep an eye on the e-liquid level – as this needs a lot of filling I found that once I let it drop below 1/4 full it resulted in me burning out the coil unfortunately.
If that happens the coil is destined for the bin and requires replacement.
Innokin Endura T22 Pro Airflow
Sadly the airflow is not adjustable for this kit so the airflow provided will depend only on the coil installed.
The 1.5 and 1.7ohm coils – have a very tight airflow indeed you do need to suck them cheeks in to vape – but this is a kit designed to make cigarette smokers feel at home so this airflow is absolutely perfect.
I will go so far to say this is probably the tightest airflow I have felt on a kit in a long time.
I do wish there was adjustable airflow – especially as I have just had a tooth removed and the suck needed for this kit was hurting my empty socket and I felt like my brain might have been coming through my gaping gum hole… (yes GUM hole you filthy animals!)
I found the M18 1.6ohm coil had a much better airflow – still very tight but not to the extent of the other 2 coils. I actually love the M18 1.6ohm coil all round!
In one word – perfect.
Little details such as the On/Off slide switch, easy to see LED indicators and excellent build quality have made this mod feel more expensive than it actually is.
As the manual does not specify the colour of the LED on the fire button according to battery charge remaining I have had to figure this out myself – see the battery life section for a guide.
I think this will be robust enough to keep surviving until the battery eventually deteriorates. The quality of the mod will probably outlast the internal battery in my eyes.
Innokin Endura T22 Pro Battery Life
Obviously there are a lot of variables concerning battery life – such as your own vaping frequency and nicotine strength. Plus with this kit the type of coil and power level will also make the battery life vary.
But to give you a guide – with the M18 1.6ohm coil on the 12.5W power level I got around 20 hours of vaping which is pretty epic!
Breaking this down I got 15 hours vaping until the LED changed from Green to Orange (yes 15 hours!!!)
I then got around 2 hours before the LED changed from Orange to Red.
From Red I got another 3 hours before the battery completely ran out.
- 3 coils to choose from with 2 included in the kit
- INCREDIBLE battery life!
- Physical On / Off switch is something more mods should include
- Absolutely stunning appearance
- Slide top fill with good resistance and leak prevention check valve
- Fire button has hidden colour LED – surprises you as it looks like it is made from metal.
- USB Type C charging
- Environmentally friendly packaging – no plastic or polystyrene – all paper or card.
- Build quality is excellent – looks more expensive than it is!
- No leaks even when tipping tank upside down.
- 1.6ohm M18 coil is incredible – sadly not supplied with the kit
- 1.7ohm new T18 Pro coil is also a great performer
- Rubber pads on base cushion the mod base when putting it down on a hard surface- brilliant for my glass tables!
- This does miss an adjustable airflow control. It doesn’t need a lot of adjustment but it would be nice to tailor it to my preference a bit more.
- Ugly Ultem colour drip tip – subjective but to me spoils the look of the whole kit – thankfully a black tip is also included to save the day! Plus the standard 510 fitment means you can use other standard drip tips on here.
- Cannot replace tank glass if broken – the tank is scrap.
- The 1.5ohm coil feels dated in comparison and should be replaced in the kit with the 1.6ohm M18 coil instead.
- The Battery indicator colour when not charging is not explained in the instructions but this does have 3 colours.
- Tank is a bit greedier on e-liquid than the pod kits I usually use – but this tank does have huge coils. Make sure to refill before it reaches only a quarter full or you could damage the coil.
Final Review Verdict
If the kit included just the 1.7 and 1.6ohm coils – this would be perfection. I think Innokin should retire the 1.5ohm coil from new kits now – it is still a good coil – but it seems dated and dull compared with the newer design coils.
The build quality is brilliant, every item screams quality and not a single issue or leak at all.
The things I would change are that I would add some kind of airflow control as a few of the coils have a surprisingly tight airflow.
I love MTL vaping and even I was shocked how tight the 1.7 and 1.5ohm coils are. Plus the battery LED indicator needs more explanation in the instruction manual – I needed to work out for myself what the colour codes mean when not on charge.
Buy this kit, some delicious nicotine salts and the 1.6ohm coils and this should help anyone prefer vaping over smoking.
Simple but versatile – once set up to your preference you should get a lot of happy vaping from the Innokin Endura T22 Pro Kit.
