Introduction: Sky Solo Plus by Vaporesso
The Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus is a pen style vape mod with a large internal, non-removable battery topped off with the a huge 8ml (non TPD) integrated tank.
Vaporesso haven’t been around for an awful long time in the grand scheme of things, forming in 2015 with their parent company, SMOORE, which was formed in 2006.
I do have to admit though, Vaporesso have made some very attractive devices recently with the Luxe Nano and the Aurora Play. I myself reviewed the Vaporesso Armor Pro Kit back in August 2018 and still use it to this day.
The Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus is the larger sibling to the Sky Solo with increased battery and e-liquid capacity. The Sky Solo line seems to be the newer, updated versions of the Vaporesso Veco line of pen type mods running the newer GT Meshed coils.
I received the Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus in Black as you can see from the image above. The kit does come in four colours in total, Black, Silver, Rainbow and Blue.
This 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 Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus comes in a simple box with plastic insert where all the contents sit. It is solidly built with no sharp or protruding edges. The fire button sits nicely on the front of the device surrounded by the LED indicator and has a nice throw to it, you don’t have to press too hard to fire the device.
The design is a simple pen style which makes it very portable with good battery life with it’s 3000mAh capacity.
A simple design with an integrated tank on top but this does mean you are unable to put your own tanks on top.
Sky Solo Plus Tank
As previously mentioned, the tank on this kit is integrated with the device. I received the review unit with the HUGE 8ml capacity glass though if you live in a TPD region, you will only receive a 2ml capacity tank in the kit.
The Tank is, as I always say, your standard, “Plug and Play”, screw in coil type and very easy indeed to change out.
How To Change The Coil
To insert the coil into the tank, simply screw in the coil to the top part of the mod, put the Glass over the coil then simply screw the top part of the tank down.
Be very careful if you are removing the glass as it is very hard to remove and when I was taking the kit apart for this review, the glass did crack, and I am not a very heavy handed person.
If you look closely at the Vaporesso Sky Solo Kit above, you get two airflow holes at either side, but you can not alter the airflow as it is fixed and unmovable. It is always wide open and is a pretty airy vape, that’s just something to note if you like a rather restricted vape.
How To Fill The Sky Solo Tank
Filling the Vaporesso Sky Solo Tank couldn’t be simpler. Simply unscrew the Top Cap from the tank and you are met with a sizeable fill port and you will easily be able to decant your chosen e-liquid from most bottles.
GT Meshed Coils
The two coils provided were GT Meshed Coils 0.18ohm, 50 to 85W. In all honesty, the flavour from these was pretty good from a stock coil and pretty much on par with your standard rebuildable tank.
Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus
As with most pen style vape kits, what you get is something pretty basic and there’s no getting away from it, this device is in that category.
- To turn the device on, it’s a simple 5 clicks in succession and the device immediately powers up, 5 clicks again and it powers the device off.
- To vape, press the fire button and away you go.
- Whilst you are pressing the fire button, there are 3 light indicators, these will tell you what charge the battery is at, Blue and you are at 50-100%, Green and you are below 50% and a Red light tells you that the device needs charging.
The Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus uses the Omni Board Mini offering you multiple protections, burn, no load, ESD Circuit, low power, overtime, overcharge, short circuit and low resistance. This pretty much covers you in the case of any malfunctions should they happen to the device.
How does the Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus Perform?
The Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus performs very admirably indeed. It’s a reasonably quick firing mod, you certainly don’t have to wait very long to be able to vape.
Throughout my time using the kit, I used a 70VG/30PG e-liquid with the pre-installed coil.
The longevity of the battery is ok dependent on your usage. I can get up to four hours with the type of vaping I do. The recharge time was pretty swift, fully charged from dead took around 110 minutes via USB.
On the plus side, you can charge the device while you are out and about in your car or via any other suitable external USB charger.
Flavour and Vapour Production
I have always been a fan of the Vaporesso GT Meshed coils, I use them in my Cascade Baby tank and the flavour with them is very good. Ok, it might not be the top of the line rebuildable tank but they are certainly a very solid vape. The longevity of the coils, as always, depends on the type of e-liquid you use and your vaping style.
On an average basis, I got around two weeks before it needed a change.
The vapor production from the Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus took my a little by surprise, I was expecting an average cloud but you can really chuck out some big clouds from this thing with a little bit of effort, if that’s your thing.
- Very good build quality
- Good Flavour
- Very Responsive
- Huge 8ml capacity (sorry – 2ml for TPD people)
- Lightweight and portable
- Good battery life
- Doesn’t leak
- Non adjustable air control
- No spare glass
All in all, my time with the Vaporesso Sky Solo Plus has been quite enjoyable and certainly, the Pros far outweigh the Cons.
I would call it an intermediate type vape. It’s a step up from the multitude of Pod systems out there but it’s not quite a full blown device with all the different setting that comes with it. It is easy to use though and coils are readily available, easy to replace and give good flavour.
