Movkin Disguiser – The Tank Hiding Vape Mod
There has been an increase in recent months in All In One box mods hitting the vape market, most of which have proprietary in-built tanks.
The Movkin Disguiser has stepped away from that idea and come up with a mod that you can use with your own sub ohm tank or RTA and literally hide your tank in the mod itself.
A great idea for sure but how does the Movkin Disguiser work in practice? Lets find out with our hands on review.

Build Quality & Design
There are no two ways about it, the Movkin Disguiser is a big unit with plenty of weight to it! If you have used the Wismec Reuleaux RX200s then this will give you an idea of the kind of shape we are looking at although the Disguiser is a lot beefier the the RX200S!
Check out the size comparison with the Disguiser Vs Reuleaux RX200S Vs Eleaf 200W Despite the size, the Disguiser still feels comfortable in the hand, although for my personal preferences it’s just that little bit too large. I do have small hands though!
The quality of the box mod is immediately apparent. The zinc alloy body has a smooth finish and the buttons set well within the mod with a quality ‘click’ to them.
The only thing for me, that lets it down a little, is the plastic top and base panels. It just feels as though this cheapens things a little. Movkin have likely designed it this way to keep the weight down as much as possible. Or possibly to keep scratches and wear down to a minimum in high contact areas.
The magnetic side face plate that sits over your tank has three large slots so viewing e juice levels is not an issue. Not a major point, but the panel itself though doesn’t sit completely flush with the base or the top section with gaps noticeable on both ends.
The magnets aren’t the strongest I’ve come across and feel a little weak, although I had no issues with the side panel coming off in any way.
The base of the device houses the 2 x 18650 battery slots which are easily accessed by a hinged lid. This works well and allows your batteries to be inserted and removed with ease.
There are also venting holes on either side of the mod catering to each battery.
There is no Micro USB port so no charging or firmware upgrades for the Disguiser.
510 Telescopic Drip Tip
The telescopic drip tip can extend to approximately 35mm and at it’s shortest it stands at around 20mm in height.
It also gives you the option of using a different 510 drip tip by just plugging it into the end, so if you have a favorite drip tip you are good to go.
The Disguiser is available, as standard, in white and black. Movkin are also planning to release different colored face plates and other mod colors by the looks of things. Great option for vapers that like to create an individual lookin mod.
How Does The Movkin Disguiser Perform?
First, let’s take a look at the functions.
- 5 Click On/Off
- Mode selection: Press fire button 3 times in quick succession to cycle through modes
- Lock On/Off: Press both function buttons together
- Flip Screen: Press Fire Button and ‘+’ button together
- Stealth mode: Press fire button and ‘-‘ button together
All very easy to use. no confusing button combinations on the Disguiser. The OLED screen is also large and clear.Scrolling through the wattage and temperature ranges speeds up so is easy to go through the settings quickly.
What Tanks Can You Use In The Disguiser
The Disguiser can be used as a normal mod with a tank/ RDA sat on top by way of the extension pole included in the kit.
Hiding Your Tank
When it comes to hiding your sub ohm tank/rta, the way this works is by using the extendable 510 drip tip. The steps to install are as follows:
- Scew your tank into the Disguiser
- Extend the drip tip and push this through the hole on top of the mod
- Pushing the drip tip into your tank
- Adjust the drip tip as needed
It works great! The tanks are concealed well and the drip tip protrudes just the right amount at the top of the mod. Or at least with the handful of tank’s I tried with it.
I tested the following:
- Aspire Cleito
- Artery 49er Tank
- SMOK TFV4
- SMOK TFV8 – Although it ‘could’ be used. The TFV8 didn’t fit properly due to the width of the tank. The casing on the Disguiser wouldn’t close fully flush. This is down to the knurling and glass section of the tank increasing the diameter from 24.5mm to 25.5mm. If it was 24.5mm all the way, like the TFV4, then it would have been fine.
So, barring the TFV8, all slotted in nicely and worked as you would expect, both long and shorter tanks.
Just be wary if the diameter of the tank increases from the base up it may cause the face plate to sit out of place.
Movkin Disguiser As A Squonker
This shows how versatile the Disguiser can be. I don’t have the parts as of yet, at the time of writing they weren’t available, but there will be separate parts available to turn the device into a squonk mod. Airflow
Another thing I noticed when vaping is that you do have to adjust your hand position slightly so as not to cut off the airflow that is fed through the three slots on the magnetic face plate.
More of an issue if you have the power button facing away from the palm, so you may find you have to have the face plate facing outwards.
The telescopic drip tip has a 15mm diameter bore hole (or there abouts) and helps provide a nice and airy draw making for a very good vape.
What I Like
The main thing, is of course, what the Movkin Disguiser is designed for… Disguising the tank within the mod. It does this well with the 22mm -24.5mm tanks I used and worked a treat.
The quality is good overall and the functions are very easy to use. The large, bright OLED screen is clear indoors and out.
What I Didn’t Like
For me, the size of the Movkin Disguiser was just too big to take this mod into consideration for regular use. As I mention, though, I don’t have the biggest hands so this may not be an issue for you.
It does also carry some weight to it so not exactly the most ‘portable friendly’ mod.
While the build quality is good overall, the magnets on the face plate feel a little weak and the cover does leave slight gaps at the top. Probably being over critical here but it’s something I picked up on.
Lastly, no firmware upgrade capability. Something that is now becoming more common with many vape mod manufacturers.
Final Movkin Disguiser Review Verdict
The Movkin Disguiser is a great idea and hides most tanks up to 24.5mm (that I tried) well. While it gave me a good vape, for me personally, it’s just too big!
For that reason, I wouldn’t use this on a regular basis. Of course we are all different vapers when it comes to wants and needs and size may not be an issue for you.
- Great option if you want to conceal your tank
- Solid build quality overall
- Easy to use functions
- Comptible with most TC wires currently available
- Fits a wide variety of tanks
- It’s a big, big mod. Although I do have small hands.
- Magnetic face plate is on the weak side
- No Firmware upgrade capability
