I’m a big fan of Innokin vaping products so to get my hands on the brand new Coolfire Pebble kit made me a very happy vaper.
To coin a phrase you’d have to tear my Coolfire 4 TC 100 out of my cold dead hand such is my love for it so the Pebble with the Slipstream tank will have to be something special to become my ‘go to device.’
BTW my mom had a little cute but very annoying yappy little dog called Pebble – so does the new Innokin vaping system leave me happy or yappy? Could we be adding this to the best small vape mod list?
Let’s take a closer look.
In The Box
As far as packaging goes the Pebble comes in a compact little slide-out box with a tiny plastic window so you can see your device.
It’s not what you would call ‘classy packaging’ but it does the job nicely with the reverse giving you info on the device as well as your all-important ‘scratch n sniff’ authenticity sticker.

- Max Wattage 50W
- Max Output Voltage 7.5V

Slipstream Tank Specs
- 4cm long – to mouthpiece
- 2.5cm width

Key Features on the Pebble
If it’s beginning to ‘feel a lot like Christmas’ where you are – then it’ll feel even more so when you turn the Pebble on and off because you get a very Christmassy red – amber – green light display which looks great on the tiny but extremely clear OLED screen.
So once you’ve been turned on [sniggers] what else do the three buttons do I hear you ask?
- Press the fire button x3 for on and off [enjoy the pretty lights]
- Holding the + and – buttons will increase or decrease your wattage in 0.5 increments from 6w to 50w
- Hold + and – for 3 seconds to flip the screen orientation
And that’s it really – refreshingly simple.
The Pebble picks up your coil resistance with the recommended wattage etched onto the coils.
It comes with 2 X 0.8ohm Kanthal coils with a recommended wattage of 20 to 35 watts.
The coils have 3 juice holes – two large and one small.
You can also get hold of Stainless Steel coils at 0.5ohm with a recommended temperature of 160c – 230c [or 320f – 446f in old money].
The Innokin Pebble kit I received came pretty much fully charged and lasted a solid 8 hours of regular vaping. Re-charging took a little over 45 minutes to fully charge which is very fast.
Pass through vaping is possible – however given the USB slot is in the base you need to lay the Pebble on its side. I had no leakage from the tank whilst doing this and the cable is relatively long.
How To Fill The Innokin Slipstream Tank
Regulars to my reviews will pretty much know by now that I pick up instruction manuals – laugh and toss them to one side.
Before of course returning to them almost immediately when I can’t work out how to do whatever it is I’m trying to do.
So when it comes to filling the Slipstream Tank DO read the instructions lol.
It’s a top-fill which is my preferred style by a mile; however it’s not a simple screw off.
Think of a ‘childproof’ pill box and you will get the picture.
You need to press down on the mouthpiece and twist anti-clockwise – unlike me who happily spun the x3 air-flow holes for a few minutes – ‘childproof’ indeed.
Once open you get a lovely large well in which to drip in your e-liquid making sure you DON’T go over the tiny Max Fill line mark [yeah you know me by now lol].
The Slipstream coil screws directly into the top/mouthpiece meaning you can leave those last dregs of juice in the tank to swap out your coils – a very easy and clean process indeed – unless you fill over the line and squidge e-liquid everywhere – *sighs*.
Pebble and Slipstream Safety
- Device cuts out automatically after 15 seconds
- Short circuit cut-off
- If resistance falls below 0.15 device will not fire
- If atomizer not connected properly or above 3.5ohm device won’t fire
- Auto cut-off if battery over discharged
- Screen displays ‘Too Hot’ if overheating
- The Pebble remembers your last wattage setting
Build and Design Quality
I’ve always said Innokin products are for me right up there in the top three of best build and design quality vaping kits and the Pebble and Slipstream are no different.
This little cutie is simply gorgeous to look at with the Slipstream tank the perfect fit.
I can’t stress just how small the Pebble box mod is – talk about Nano Technology – this little guy really tiny as you can see by the photo of the 50p sitting on top of it.
However the design that’s gone into this delightful little vaping device is superb.
It’s obviously matchbox shaped but the slight curves make it a joy to behold and er hold.
What at first appears to be venting on the top of the Pebble mod is in fact a grip feature that keeps this little guy secure in your hand.
I received the black version and the refreshingly rattle-free stainless steel buttons against the OLED screen looks great.
Those buttons really are snug and very nice to click.
The Pebble is also available in Blue – White – Brown and a very apt Stone colour.
I’ve mentioned the small but crystal clear OLED screen before but as far as design goes it looks fantastic – extremely clear and the traffic light show is great.
As to the Slipstream tank once again the design is stunning both in practicality with the top fill easy coil swap and the look of the thing.
Hand on heart this is one of the best looking tanks I’ve ever seen.
How Does the Innokin Pebble Mod and Slipstream Tank Perform?
Innokin say the Pebble and Slipstream offers ‘Small Size Big Power Vaping’ and I have to agree – this vaping kit is bloody brilliant!
I’ve already said it looks great and by golly at 25 watts on a 0.8ohm coil this little beauty chucks out the clouds – fizzes the flavour and leaves this old man a very happy [not at all yappy] vaper.
I took the Pebble through 20 to 35 watts on the Kanthal BVC coil and the clouds and flavour profile were both excellent – with I might add the merest difference in the overall vaping experience – maybe a tad warmer at 30watts.
The Stainless Steel 0.5oh coils were the same – simply superb to vape on.
I’m happily vaping on the Pebble and Slipstream whilst writing this – my Coolfire TC 100 sulking on my desk – and out and about this little cutie pie slips nicely into my pocket before literally disappearing into my hand for true stealth vaping.
Not more to say on the performance other than this is one of the best vaping kits I’ve ever had the pleasure to use.
What I Like
I love the compact size – the design and the whole vaping experience on the Pebble and Slipstream – this is awesome.
The tiny OLED screen is as clear as gin and the light display is a subtle fun touch.
Charging time is super-quick fast – the battery keeps on keeping on and the ability to pass-through vape is an added bonus.
As for the Slipstream tank – again a fab design and exemplary performance makes this one of the best looking and best performing tanks I’ve ever reviewed/used.
Just buy it!
What I Don’t Like
Ummmm…er…well…at a push and I mean a real push I’d say it’s a little on the heavy side for its size but hey maybe I have limp wrists…or something 😉
Final Review Verdict
I said at the beginning that it would take a very special vaping kit to prise the Coolfire TC100 out of my cold dead hand – but I think the Innokin Pebble and Slipstream might just do that.
I’ll say it again this is an awesome vaping set-up and then some.
If you’re looking for a stealth vaping device – something well built – well designed – easy to use and a joy to look at then stop reading – click the link and buy it!!!
So…if I moved out of Lewis Hamilton’s slipstream and the Pebble was blown out of my hand into the crowd at Brands Hatch would I slam on the brakes hit the pits and hunt for it..?
I would indeed [sorry pit crew] and probably spend all day looking for it before going out and buying three more.
