The Vaporfi VAIO Go vape pen starter kit comes with both a direct to lung and mouth to lung coil making it a perfect choice for newcomers to vaping.
I recently reviewed the VAIO Mini – the baby brother of this one – and actually surprised myself by liking it.
Is It All Vaping Systems GO With The Vaio Go Vape Pen Set-Up by Vaporfi?
So how does the VAIO all in one MTL and DTL vape pen kit stand up against the smaller version?
Could this be one of the best vape pens for e liquid we have tried? Let’s take a look.
This was sent to me direct from VaporFi – thank you – for the purpose of this review and as always my thoughts and opinions are my own.

As you might expect from an AIO [all in one] device simplicity is key here.
This really is a fill and go vape kit hence the name I guess.
Out of the box neither of the MTL or DTL coils are installed – so depending on what style you vape choose the coil to match.
The 0.5ohm is for sub ohm vaping and obviously the 1.5ohm is for mouth to lung – how they perform I’ll get to in a moment.
The Vaporfi VAIO Go is powered by a very respectable 2000mAH battery and there are no settings or screen to worry about – the chip recognises the resistance of the coil and adjusts automatically.
There’s a very generous airflow that is mirrored on both sides.
At just 3ml capacity sub ohm vapers may find themselves filling often however it’s more than enough for MTL vapers – fill to the unobtrusive max fill line to avoid flooding your tank.
The kit includes x2 drip tips one each for both vaping styles.
Design and Build Quality
Given I’ve reviewed pretty much all of the current VaporFi products you’ll know from past reviews the build quality is 99.999% of the time superb.
The same goes for the VaporFi VAIO GO it really is beautifully machined.
The tank unscrews with butter like threads as does the airflow ring which has just the right amount of resistance and has a stopper.
Design wise – and I use the word stylish a bit too much lol – is shall we say ‘contemporary’ in that it looks bloody gorgeous.
Another thing I say a lot is there’s not much designers can do to make a pen style vape kit stand out from the crowd.
The design here is simple but stunning – clean – elegant and the metallic colours are sharp very modern with a wonderful finish to them.
It really is an eye catcher and I’m loving the subtle green version I’ve received.
There’s also a refreshing lack of over the top branding or fancy logos with the VaporFi name subtly etched into one side and towards the bottom of the battery – like I said very cool and contemporary.
It’s very lightweight to hold and at just 22mm it fits nicely in your pocket or bag – it is rather long though.
How Does the VaporFi VAIO GO Perform?
OK I began with the MTL 1.5ohm coil with the black MTL drip tip- smaller bore – the other slightly wider being stainless steel.
The coil was fully primed and had sat in the juice for a good 10 minutes – I was using a 50-50 VG/PG tobacco e-liquid from Black Note and one I use every day so I know the taste very well indeed.
Unlike a few recent MTL tanks I’ve reviewed the break in time for the coil was about half a tank before I got a decent flavour – however the longer I had this coil on the go the flavour improved.
Longevity wise I began using this on New Year’s Day and the coil still has a freshness about it.
Turning the airflow almost closed gave an extremely tight vape and I found a happy medium with it about a third open for my preferred vape.
Not bad at all!
Sub Ohm Vaping On The VAIO Go With The 0.5Ohm Coil
With a clean tank I followed the same procedure of priming the coil and leaving it to sit.
First vape was nothing to write home about however after a couple of puffs to get things moving I was very pleased with both the vapour and most importantly the taste.
Whilst the taste wasn’t as crisp and deep as say the Uwell Crown III – and given I rarely, if ever, use stock coils these days – it was more than passable – indeed very good!
The clouds were a surprise too with thick and dense aromatic vapour that hung around a while – excellent stuff.
Check out our recommended Sub Ohm E Liquid.
What I Like
I like the overall design – those colours are stunning – and the simplicity of use – one click is as easy as it gets.
The flavour is very good and as good as any stock coil sub ohm tank I’ve reviewed – saying that it’s not in my top five all timers but certainly good enough for a top ten.
Vapour wise you can’t fault it though I wouldn’t mark this as a cloud chucker it certainly delivers respectable clouds if that’s your kind of thing.
And this is one of those kits that says it can switch between MTL and DTL and actually can – so a great investment that will take you through both styles should you wish too try either/or.
It’s a great price too!
What I Don’t Like
It is a little long – though saying that I was convinced it would tower above the SMOK Stick V8 – but it really is just a touch smaller – must be some kind of optical illusion!
3ml capacity for the tank means that in sub ohm mode you will be re-filling a lot – but us vapers in the UK are used to 2ml – but still when out and about take a bottle with you!
Final Review Verdict
I like the Vaporfi Vaio Go a lot.
The colours are quite lovely as is the contemporary design – it’s certainly a looker especially with the sub ohm stainless steel drip tip on top.
Flavour is excellent as are the clouds and it’s dead easy to use.
This is an ideal kit for a brand new vaper who can try both MTL [similar draw as smoking] and sub ohm vaping without breaking the bank.
I think VaporFi has a real hit on their hands with this one.
- Simple to use
- Great flavour
- Decent clouds
- Colour options
- Good battery longevity
- Only 3ml capacity
- A little long
