The Vapor Storm Trip mod is from a brand that has been around the e-cig market since 2015 and sellers of the popular Vapor Storm Puma back in 2017.
With so many mods out there on the market in what is an ever moving industry, it’s always hard for the little guy to get noticed.
I always sit up and take notice, or rather look a little closer when companies push out headline statements like “The lightest all metal Vape Mod in the World”!Now, I’m not going to go out there and search every metal Mod to see if this in fact, a true statement. I guess I will have to take their word for it. What I will say, even with batteries fitted and a Tank on top, it’s bloody lightweight for sure!
What Can We Expect From The Vapor Storm Trip
The Vapor Storm Trip comes in 4 colours. The colours are Grey, Blue, Red and the colour which I received, Black. It offers upto 200W and comes in at just 90g!
The Vapor Storm Trip was sent to me for review. As always, I will give you my own, honest opinion of this product after a lengthy testing period.

Design and Build Quality
The design of the Vapor Storm Trip isn’t anything we haven’t seen before. It’s your standard square Mod with a centralised 510 plate, power button with up and down buttons. Looks a little like a Tripp suitcase design.. Maybe a coincidence!
The build quality is, on the whole, very good. It has an all metal body though it does feel a little tinny to the touch.
There is no getting away from it though, the Mod is very light indeed weighing in at 90g.
Overall, it’s a nicely built Mod and so far, throughout my testing, is free from chips or scrapes so it’s doing very well on that score!
The fire button and the up and down buttons are all perfectly placed on the front of the Mod within easy reach of the thumb when held in the hand.
The OLED screen is very easy on the eye and viewable just as well in bright daylight as it is indoors.
The 510 connector is nicely centred on top of the Mod. The favoured location for me on all my devices.
The diameter is 24mm but my QP Design Fatality M25 sits nicely on top with just an ever so slight overhang, certainly not enough to set off my OCD.
OLED Screen | Functions
All the functions you require, Modes etc are accessed via pressing the + and – together for two seconds then are easily navigable by the + and – buttons and the fire button to select as you go through the various Modes.
In total, there are five working modes:
- Power Mode (VW)
- TC mode(NI200,TI01, SS316)
- Bypass mode
- Curve mode (CCW)
There is more than enough options on this Mod to suit nearly everyone’s needs.
Batteries and Placement
The batteries are placed into the sled by removing the rear battery door. The battery door is held in place by 2 very strong magnets. In the time I have spent testing the Vapor Storm Trip I have had no movement from the battery door at all.
The battery contacts in the sled are gold plated with the top contacts being spring loaded.
There’s a good length of ribbon to remove your batteries easily. The positive and negative markings, though the same colour as the sled are clearly visible.
How Does The Vapor Storm Trip Mod Perform?
The Trip Mod performs very well.
It’s an instant firing Mod and the wattage mode is pretty accurate. The resistance from the coils I used with it were also pretty spot on. It’s also well priced when compared to a lot of other Mod’s with equal performance.
Running the Vapor Storm Trip Mod as my main device with Samsung 30Q batteries lasted me, like most other dual 18650 battery Mods, a full day set at 70W.
Judging by the Mod’s interface, I shouldn’t imagine there’s many power saving features set into the board.
The Vapor Storm Trip is certainly no better, nor worse than any other Mod in this range.
Again, as always, it all depends on your style of vaping, what batteries you use and how much you vape.
If you get caught short, there is a USB port allowing you to charge your batteries on board but as always, I highly recommend you only do this as an emergency measure and charge your batteries out of the device in a standalone charger.
- Super Lightweight
- Good battery life
- Looks good
- Easy use menu system
- Centralised 510 connector
- Fits in the hand well
- Very tinny feel
Final Review Verdict
I loved my time with the Vapor Storm Trip Mod and it shows you don’t have to break the bank to get a good, reliable vaping device. Ok, so it hasn’t got all the bells and whistles of other devices, but it also doesn’t come with a high price.
It is super lightweight compared to all the Mods I use which makes for an excellent daily driver. This is definitely one Mod I will be using in my daily rotation.
