Introduction: Cosmo Kit by Vaptio
The Vaptio Cosmo kit is a baby device in comparison to most Vaptio kits. And the name itself isn’t quite as ‘Out There’ in comparison to Vaptio’s other releases. Despite the size, does that mean it can’t keep up with the big boys?
This Kit was sent to me for the purpose of review. All views and opinions are solely those of my own and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of others..

Design and Build Quality
The Cosmo Tank is a cute little thing, housing 2ml of e-liquid. But it has some very unique features.
For such a small tank, it all slides and slots together nicely and during my testing I had no issued with leaks, parts coming loose or faults.
It feels well made and the paint finish is very durable. At the top is a 510 Drip Tip fitting which has been compatible with all my other drip tips.
Unfortunately the kit doesn’t come with a spare glass which is a shame.
The Cosmo Tank easily manages mouth to lung (MTL) vaping, and direct to lung (DTL) vaping thanks to clever adjustable airflow options.
For MTL, you can set the airflow between 2 little holes on one side only to allow a more restrictive vape, but then twist it up to DTL airflow which opens up large slots on both sides. Its super simple to adjust as the complete tank twists, leaving the base stationary which is a clever little feature.
No matter where you set your airflow, there is simply no noise, no whistle. Which is impressive in my opinion for such a diddy tank.
The Top of the tank twists off with a smooth 90 degree anti-clockwise turn, enabling the tank to be filled via the 2 large kidney shaped slots, and is easily re-assembled by placing the top cap on and turning until the notches are located and it drops back into place.
Turn the top clockwise 90 degrees and its ready to go.
The kit comes with 2 coils, the C1 1.6 Ω coils is designed for the MTL experience, with the Wattage recommended between 10-15w. And the C2 coil is a 0.7 Ω coils designed for DTL, with a recommended wattage of 15-23w. Which in my opinion is baffling as the device itself is rated up to 30w.
So surely that means using the C2 coil at the Highest rating will damage the coils? It appeared not during my testing.
The Vaptio Cosmo mod is just as cute as the tank with a fire button up top which when clicked 5 times will turn on/off the device, and a downward pointing arrow below that, which enables you to select between the 3 power options:
- H – High (30w Output)
- M – Medium (20w Output)
- L – Low (10w Output)
There is a tiny RGB dot that appears when you release the fire button, which is used as a battery indicator:
- Blue – High Battery (70-100%)
- Green – Medium Battery (30-70%)
- Red – Low Battery (0-30%)
When charging the device, the display will flash L-M-H and this will alter depending on the current charge level of your battery.
In The Hand
This super slender kit is super comfortable in the hand, the paint finish is nice and smooth and the only parts of the mod that slightly protrude are the fire button and the wattage selector. The curve of the rear of the Vaptio Cosmo mod nestles nicely into your fingers leaving your thumb in perfect position to fire, and adjust the settings.
In the Pocket
As previously mentioned, this is a super small kit so its highly unlikely that you wont have space in your wallet for it, let alone in your pocket.
Setting the Tank & Mod Up
To set up the Kit for first use, its pretty simple:
- Just screw the tank onto the mod
- Twist top cap 90 degrees to access the filling slots
- Fill with your desired e-liquid and re-fit the cap
- Let the coil soak up the liquid for 3-5mins and away you go!
Changing The Coils
- Unscrew the tank. (Sometimes the top unscrews leaving the coil in the base, sometimes the coil unscrews with the top. Either way it doesn’t matter)
- Remove the glass
- Unscrew the coil
- Fit new coil
- Refit glass tube
- Re-fit tank sections
How Does The Cosmo Perform?
It’s hard not to compare this kit to the Pod System devices which have taken over the starter kit world during recent times. But seeing as its clearly aimed at the newbies, that’s what I’m going to do.
Flavour & Vapour
C1 1.6 Ω coils
As far as MTL coils go, this has been a joy to vape on, with the airflow set at pretty much its lowest (Half of 1 hole open) and the wattage on Low, it delivers a lovely, slightly warm, restrictive vape with a nice amount of flavour and a discrete amount of vapour.
This setting feels extremely similar to smoking – Which should work nicely for recent quitters. I found with the airflow open any more, it didn’t feel as satisfying.
C2 0.7 Ω coils
Vaping this DTL, on High, with the airflow wide open on both sides, it delivers a surprisingly good vape, flavour is excellent and impressive vapour production for such a small tank.
Also, interestingly enough, the coil performed very well on the Low setting, with the airflow set to a minimum. (Half of 1 hole) SO I really don’t see a point to the 2 coil options. I happily used the 0.7 Ω coils to do my MTL and DTL vaping with no issues whatsoever, and on the low setting (Below the recommended wattage) it was a lovely MTL vape.
With regards to vaping above the 23w recommended, on High, I experienced no dry hits, or burning taste when vaping with the airflow wide open.
Both coils worked extremely well and it was surprising how little e-liquid I used during the past week. After 4 days on the 1.6 Ω coils, I had a look at the cotton and it still looked fairly new. So I’d say the coils are extremely durable and long lasting
Batteries/Life and Charging
The 1500mAh battery is more than enough to last a full day, and longer. Throughout my tests of this kit I only charged the device twice. Which takes around 25minutes.
- A great all-rounder for a new vaper
- Coils last and last
- Not a heavy e-liquid drinker
- Packs a punch for a small kit
- The 1.6 Ω coil in my opinion has no purpose
- No spare glass tube
Final Review Verdict
With the rise in Pod Systems, the Vaptio Cosmo is a Dark Horse. And it will probably struggle with sales due to Pod Kits. But if Pods aren’t your thing, this is a fantastic little device which offers an excellent vaping experience whichever way you vape it.
