Introduction to the Flash VT-1 222W Mod By Oumier
The Oumier Flash VT-1 is a lightweight budget dual battery mod that looks outstanding with its wacky graphic doors, it can fire up to 222w and handle TC with all standard wires.
Oumier was founded in China in 2013 and is the lead brand of BYB Tech, most will know this company for their releases such as the Wasp Nano RTA, the Wasp Nano Squonk kit, the Rudder 200W and also VLS RDA.
So what did we think of this little mod; is it just a flash in the pan or will it be Very Tough to explain LOL, Let go and take a up and close butchers at it.
As always with my reviews, my thoughts and views are my own after a considerable testing period.

Design and Build Quality
The Flash VT-1 comes in a standard card box with a paper over sleeve; the content includes a micro USB cable and paperwork as well as the mod.
The Mod is made of a light weight plastic with a soft rubber coating; the manufacturing quality of the product is exemplary, with a very well thought out design.
Oumier Flash VT-1 Mod
Starting at the top the mod has the standard 510 connection with a gold plated, spring loaded connection pin. The threading has been well turned and the mod will hold atomisers up to 25mm with no overhang.
A raised plastic loop (for want of a better word) is situated at approx the 28mm mark this loop acts as a barrier to help stop liquid from dripping into the screen and rotating dial.The dial is your function and selection button, it is made of plastic and covered with a soft rubber coating. This allows you to simply dial in your wattage etc or by pressing the dial you can enter the menu options screen.
The doors are made from plastic covered again by a soft rubber coatingThey have 2 little magnets on each that match up to those under the doors, the doors fit the frame very well with no discernible movement.One door is for decoration covering the backend of the plastic sled.The other covers the 2x 18650 batteries, in this respect the doors are similar to that of the iJoy Limitless 200w shape wise, with exception that the LMC doors are metal.
Inside, attached to the sled, you have a ribbon for easy battery removal; the battery sled is very clean and hosts gold plated contacts.
You really have to look to see the battery orientation marks “plus and minus signs” also marked are battery A and B these marks are all the same colour as the sled and not very deeply moulded into the sled.
The bottom of the device has the normal information printed in white; also here you will see a cluster of battery vent holes that also act to keep the board cool.
The work face of the device has a fire button and like the dial is made of plastic and also covered in the same soft rubber coating.The screen sits proud of the device body when in the UN-fired state the screen looks almost black! When activated the font is bright and large it is also easy to see the screen in bright sunlight.Below the screen you have a micro USB charge point, I cannot find any info that says that the firmware can be upgraded! However I will keep my eye on the Oumier download page in case they do release an update.
The size of the device measures 91.5 x 56 x 28.5mm, the mod has been manufactured to very high standards for such a cheap device, it is very light weight even with dual batteries installed, it’s a great all day carry around mod.
How Does The Oumier Flash VT- 1 Perform?
For this review the the version of the Flash VT-1 I am is called Party Girl, I have placed my Blue Apocalypse RDA on to match the mod with 0.15Ω dual coils installed. I am using Sherbet Apple and Mango liquid by Moreish Puff which is a delicious sharp fruity liquid.
Basic Guide to using the device
- Insert 2x 18650 batteries – the device will automatically come on
- Pop a tank/RDA or RTA on the device
- Use the dial to tune in your desired wattage and vape away
How to Operate the Menu System
The menu system is really easy to understand, my only stumbling block was getting used to using the dial rather than adjustment buttons!
- Press the dial x3 to switch between VW/Ni/Ti/SS/Bypass
- In TC mode press the dial x2 to change wattage
- To lock the device completely hold the dial down and press the fire button
- To change the date and time press the dial x4
- To turn the device on and off press the fire button x5 when the device come on it will display the “OUMIER” start screen
The only thing I can’t seem to do is lock the ohms of my coils, there is nothing in the paperwork on this so I can only presume it’s not meant to be lol.
30 to 100w
30w produced a nice amount of vapour the flavour was good, however the warmth was not there for me, so in 10w stages I put the Flash VT-1 up to 100w! 100w was a wee bit much for my micro lungs lol but did produce a very warm flavoursome with an incredible amount of vapour production. I have settled on 65w as my go to with this device with my Apocalypse RDA; it give the right balance of warmth flavour and vapour for me as well as keeping the battery usage to a minimum.
As far as I can tell Temp Control functions well in the limited testing I did with the unit, the mod handles the normal temp range of 100-300℃/200-600℉ with all the normal TC wires.
As normal I ran my dry and damp tests with dual SS coils 420f at 50w.
I pulsed the coils 5 times; result was a little yellowing of the cotton under the coils – which is to be expected!
I chain vaped until the cotton felt dry to me; the test showed no markings on the cotton. Test passed.
All the normal info is found on screen and set out in such a way that is easy for those of us who are sight challenged to be able to read easily with a decent sized font.
If left alone for approx 15s the screen reverts to the time and date screen, while using the mod I found that because the screen sits proud of the body, the sides of the screen if looked at straight on have what I call LED bleed; parts of the font light up the sides of the screen to give like a framed effect, which can be quite distracting.
At 65w I was able to enjoy 4hrs dead on vape time! At 80W the battery lasted 21/2 to 3hrs depending on how I vaped.
While I can’t find anywhere that sells spare doors for the Flash VT-1! I can state that if you have more than one unit, like I do, the doors are interchangeable between mods.
- Excellent manufacture
- Very good design
- Very good overall quality
- Great selection of colours available
- A soft feel very comfortable to hold
- Good battery life
- Interchangeable doors
- Cheap price point
- LED screen bleed
- Unable to lock ohms
- No indication if the firmware is update able
Final Review Verdict
The Oumier Flash VT-1 has been a delight to use these last couple of weeks. It allows up to 222w of power, it’s very comfortable to hold and use.
The only things I could find wrong with the unit was the LED screen bleed but that may be because I was floundering to find something, but it’s really more of a hindrance to me than anything else lol and not being able to lock my coil ohms in TC, also a hindrance but not a big deal breaker.
It did take me awhile to get used to the dial function rather than using adjustment buttons but once learnt the device it is very easy to operate.
I would say that the Flash VT-1 would make a great transitional mod for those wishing for more power than say their pod system or other lower wattage device can provide.
Would I buy the Oumier Flash VT-1 again given the chance “Yes” I would, in fact I already did lol I have the “Street Combat” as the wife pinched the “Party Girl” version.
