In this review I’m taking a look at the recently released and very substantial Wotofo Mdura Pro, a fast firing IP67 rated 230w dual battery box mod.
As a company Wotofo have been around since 2012 and based in China, they have bought us devices in the past like the Dyadic Sqounk mod and Chieftain mod, toppers like the Profile RDA, and the Profile Unity RTA as well as few pods systems like Manik Mini pod kit and Manik Mini pod kit.
What Can We Expect From the Wotofo Mdura Pro?
The Wotofo Mdura Pro is a very heavy and very substantial device, and covered with an IP67 rubber coating.
Comfortable to hold, with the added security of being shock, dust and water resistant!
A large colour TFT screen, maxing out at 230w and powered by two 18650 batteries.
Running things inside is Wotofo’s own chipset – ‘NexChip’ – which supposedly adds speed and reliability to the device.
This is a perfect mod for an active outdoor life.
The Mdura Pro is available in 5 colours:
This product was sent to me for the purpose of review.
As always my thoughts and views are my own after a considerable testing period.

Design and Build Quality
Whilst I was sent the mod only kit, you can purchase the kit with the rather nice looking NexMesh Pro 2ml Sub Ohm Tank!
The device comes presented in a cardboard box with a plastic lid.
As you can see I was sent the King Kong Blue edition.
No kidding, this mod is a brick, measuring in at 88.1mm tall, 47.4mm depth with a tank diameter of 33.1mm.
The mod has zinc alloy and rubber construction with metal buttons, with the batteries in place it’s a great old handful.
From the Top
The Wotofo Mdura Pro has a stainless steel 510 connection with very well turned threading and a gold plated spring loaded connection pin.
Wotofo Mdura Pro – Workface
The 1.3 inch colour TFT screen is clear and bright indoors- outside I feel it could be a lot brighter.
The screen shows you everything that you would expect to see with this type of device!
Above the screen is printed Wotofo’s web address and below the screen tells us the NexChip is inside, the screen is surrounded by a metal frame.
The metal adjustment buttons are a little small for my fingers, they do however have a nice click to them.
Also the workface has a “type C” USB charge port that is covered with a rubber bung.
On the back of the device there is a leather panel that is also surrounded with a metal frame the leather material has advertising “Mdura” printed on to it, the leather panel has been lightly stuffed for comfort.
Wotofo Mdura Pro Sides
Due to the IP67 covering the sides are rounded and comfortable in the hand.
On the left side if looking at the screen you will see a large metal fire button is raised from the body, while clicky the fire button has a slight spongy feel to it!
Wotofo Mdura Pro Battery Door
You will see Wotofo has printed the usual CE and recycle marks on the door, and has 2 sets of 4 battery vent holes either side of the door switch.
This door is a flip door, activated by the thumb switch, it has a rubber seal and is quite weighty.
Inside the Wotofo Mdura Pro Mod
Once the door is opened you will see the gold plated battery connections marked +A -B.
Inside of the battery compartment Wotofo has covered the sled in plastic to avoid battery shorts, also you will see the Red + and Blue – symbols for the orientation of your batteries.
How Does the Wotofo Mdura Pro Mod Perform?
For this review I will be using my Profile Unity RTA, while a good match RTA, my gold tank doesn’t really go with the mod but then I do like a bit of bling lol.
For e-liquid I will be using is Dr Vapes “Lychee & Exotic Fruits”, it gave my taste buds a real treat – a virtual explosion of exotic fruits with sweet lychee highlights so yummy!
Basic Quick Start Guide
Wotofo Mdura Pro Mod
- Place your two 18650 batteries into the device following the battery guides!
Wotofo say you can charge the batteries via the USB type C port, but as always I recommend using a standalone charger.
- Clicking the fire button x5 fast to turn the device on and off.
- Press and hold the menu system button; you can then change the mode settings, standard, power, power+, Ti, Ni, SS as well as TCR setting.
- A quick tap of the menu button will put the device into stealth mode tap it again to wake the screen up!
- Both adjustment buttons together will lock and unlock the device.
- Holding the fire and minus buttons together will clear the puff count.
- Fire and plus buttons together will activate the screen colour option.
The device will adjust from 5 to 230w and will round robin the power!
- Timeout protection 10s
- Short circuit protection
- Overcharge protection
- Over discharge protection
- Reverse polarity protection
Wotofo Mdura Pro – In Use
I’m not much of a high wattage vaper and tend to stay below 100w, but I have to say I was very impressed with this unit.
The menu function give you 3 options for wattage a standard and 2 boost like options which are very powerful as well as the other wire options, and the Nexchip allows a fast almost instantaneous fire.
At 80w in Standard Power I received a nice warm cloudy DTL vape, switching to Power, the boost kicked in and I almost burnt my lips as I was not expecting much of a difference!
Silly me, I ended up cutting the watts down to 40w so I could vape!
As for the Power Plus mode it was so hot I was not comfortable at all, no matter what wattage, I spent most of my time barfing up a lung lol.
Wotofo Mdura Pro Temperature Control
I don’t use temp control these days, however I felt I had to give it a go this time.
Due to my dislike for titanium and my nickel allergy I tested the device in TC SS mode at 420f and 60w.
The unit delivered excellent flavour and again a cloudy vape that was just right for me.
Wotofo Mdura Pro Battery life
At 60w DTL to I get about 4 hours vape time with the dual 18650 batteries, which I thought was pretty good going!
With MTL at 25w, I pretty well managed all day!
Shock and Water Tests
OK you know I had to test this out!
I dropped the mod from hip high to simulate the device falling from my pocket onto a stone path!
LOL this sucker gives an impressive bounce due to the top quality of the IP67 covering, I can’t see any damage or scrapes to the rubber, but because the mod came to rest on its back there are a few scratches on the metal frame!
I did two tests, first was the dunk test I left the device in water for 20 minutes without batteries!
The mod worked fine after I dried it and put the 18650’s back in!
Leaving the batteries in and tank on, I tipped a jug of water over the setup!
Directly pouring water over the device had no discernible effect on the setup apart from getting a little water in the airflow of the Unity RTA!
I would call these tests successful.
- Good Quality
- Excellent Design
- Great battery life (MTL)
- Fairly good price (shop around)
No worries with the function of this device
- Brightness of the screen outside!
Final Review Verdict
A great device for those looking for a heavy substantial device that is rugged!
I won’t say indestructible as I am sure taking a sledgehammer to it will do the trick lol.
The menu system is simple to understand and with the “NexChip” installed the device fires really fast! The only thing that lets it down for me is the brightness of the screen!
Would I recommend the Wotofo Mdura Pro?
This is a simple easy to use device, if you like a heavy mod this will be an easy recommendation from me!
Would I buy this device again due loss or damage?
Like my original Geekvape Aegis Legend, the Wotofo Mdura Pro has already taken its proper place in my daily rotation!
So “Yes” if I lost it I would be seeking to buy another!
Is this a vape mod you are considering buying or are you already using it?
