Introduction: Manto S Kit by Rincoe
The Rincoe Manto S kit is one of the latest offerings from Rincoe. Personally, I have never owned a Rincoe product but I have seen them around and know people that use Rincoe products. We have recently reviewed the Manto X and Rincoe Ceto pod mod, both well received.
The Rincoe Manto S comes as a dual-cell 18650 Mod offering a somewhat strange 228w output. The kit also includes the Metis Mix Mesh Tank.
The Manto S is similar in looks perhaps to the Wismec RX2. The Manto S, though, is made of Polycarbonates (PC) and is very light indeed even with a full tank on top and batteries fitted.
Due to the lightweight nature and material of the device this Mod would be an ideal out and about Mod, something I call a “daily driver” to take to work etc.
I received the Rincoe Manto S Kit in Green but as you can see from the image above the kit does come in lots and lots of other colours.
The Kit was sent to me for the purposes of review. As always, I will give you my own, honest opinion of this product after a lengthy testing period.

Design and Build Quality
Although the Rincoe Manto S is made from Polycarbonates (Plastic) it feels well made. Because of the PC structure, there are very few removable parts.
It sits in the hand very well, ergonomic with a well rounded feel to it. The device itself is finished very nicely, no sharp corners or awkward protruding edges. There is also zero rattle from the Mod.
The device can be very easily fired using your thumb or finger depending which way round you hold it. The only minus point about the firing button is that it can easily be pressed and sometimes fires when you are not wanting it to.
The battery door on this Mod is easily opened with a simple lift away from the device. The door is held into place by two magnets, top and bottom, pulling away the rear door reveals the battery bays.
Mantis Mix Mesh Tank
The Mantis Mix Mesh Tank is a standard looking Tank and accompanies the Rincoe Manto S Kit well. The tank uses Rincoe Mesh coils and it’s just a case of disassembling the tank, screw your coil in, add e-liquid and away you go.
Filling the Mantis Mix Mesh Tank was several screw turns at the top, lift away then you are met with two sizeable kidney shaped holes to put in your e-liquid.
Rincoe Manto S
The Rincoe Manto S comes in a rather simple box. On opening it you are met with the Mod and the Tank. As soon as I picked up the Mod I couldn’t help notice how light it is. Although a light Mod, it is in no way a cheap looking Mod.
You can have a flavour to suit any occasion as you have already seen with the colour schemes above, there’s an awful lot of choice.
I was a little disappointed to be met with only one coil pre-installed in the tank and if you break the glass, you have had it as there isn’t a spare one of those either.
The display you get is just over an inch in size and is very clear and well laid out. You get both battery levels displayed, power output, how many seconds you vaped for, ohm’s and voltage. On clicking the fire button three times, you are then able to choose between the differing power outputs, bypass, wattage, TC etc.
How does the Rincoe Manto S Kit Perform?
From the price point of this kit, I wasn’t expecting any world records from it though I was mildly surprised with the performance of the Mod itself.
In wattage mode, during my time testing it, I wouldn’t say it is exactly accurate.
I vaped the device at 65W and from using various other devices and using my knowledge of this, I would certainly say you would need to add another 5W at least to be where you want to be.
The coil that comes with the tank provided is rated at 0.16Ω. I have constantly vaped it 65 watts and even being quite liberal with the wattage I was using and the wattage of the device not being as accurate as others, this was burnt out in just over a week. I would certainly have expected it to last a little longer than this. I have used various other RTA and RDA’s with the Rincoe Manto S and they have all worked fine.
How To Install The Batteries
You simply lift off the back cover, you are then in turn met with the battery carriage. Again, as with so many other Mods, the polarity indicators are exactly the same colour as the carriage itself. If you have trouble with your eyesight, you may struggle to see the polarity indicators.
Rincoe do state that the device can be charged via a USB cable from a PC or wall socket but, as always, I would highly recommend using an external charger for any removable cells.
Flavour and Vapour Production
The performance from this tank isn’t that great. The flavour is very muted to say the least. The coil I was using became defunct in just over a week and tasted burnt. I know that Rincoe do other coils to fit this tank so perhaps better flavour could be gained from one of those?
In this day and age, I would expect so much more from a stock mesh coil. The vapour production from the tank is average.
One other point to note also is that you do only get one coil in the kit which is a great shame. I would have liked to see a spare.
- Good build quality
- Clean menu system and easy to navigate
- Very lightweight
- Non-slip rubberised feel coating
- Poor flavour
- Stock coil longevity
- Unclear markings for battery polarity
- Only one coil included
- No spare glass
The Rincoe Manto S Kit is ok. I wasn’t blown away with it. Sometimes they say you do get what you pay for. That being said, if you were to buy the Mod on it’s own and you used your own atomiser on top, you will not have a problem at all.
This kit was certainly let down by the tank.
