After the success of the Luxe kit, Vaporesso launches the Luxe Nano compact version
Vaporesso is a Chinese company founded in 2015 by a branch of Smoore, a historical company that has been operating in the vaping sector since 2006. Vaporesso today is a well-known manufacturing company within the global e-cig scene which has established itself in the last but not least for its ability to offer innovative and often revolutionary products.
Today we present the younger brother of the Luxe Kit, the Luxe Nano Kit.
Let’s start by looking at the contents of the package.
IN THE BOX
1 x Vaporesso Luxe Nano Mod
1 x Vaporesso SKRR-S Mini tank
1 x QF Strip Coil 0.15ohm (installed)
1 x QF Meshed coil 0.2ohm
1 x Spare glass
1 x O-rings
1 x USB Cable
1 x User manual
DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY
The Kit Luxe Nano is immediately noted for its small size, compactness and sense of maneuverability. The mod Luxe Nano has a classic parallelepiped shape but at the same time has a smooth and rounded line thanks to the bevels present near the edges of the parallelepiped. In contrast, the included atom, the SKRR-S mini, has accentuated grooves on the air flow regulating ring and on the top cap. In a virtual aesthetic duel between mod and atomizer, the victory goes hands down to the mod, which manages to impose itself over the atomizer not only from the aesthetic point of view but also for solidity of construction. So at first impact the Luxe Nano convinces us much more than the SKRR-S mini tank included in the kit.
ERGONOMICS AND PORTABILITY
The compact dimensions of the mod (77 x 40 x 26 mm) and its slightly rounded parallelepiped shape, represent an absolute plus for this kit, which measures just under 123 mm in height with the tank mounted and has a total weight of about 180 gr. With these numbers, the portability of the kit is more than ever guaranteed and it will be easy even for smaller hands to hold the Luxe Nano and manage the functions on the large 1.3-inch touch screen board and activate the box using the beautiful and large “fire” button (oval shaped) with a fine satin finish.
A compact kit, easy to handle and easily transportable: proof passed.
FUNCTIONS & PERFORMANCES
Let’s take a closer look at the main features of this kit, starting with the mod Luxe Nano. Vaporesso has equipped this box with its new Omni Board 4.2 circuit and a built-in 2500 mAh battery. The charging via USB cable can be done in 2A mode and this will ensure that the time for a full charge does not exceed 1.5 hours.
The Omni Board 4.2 circuit impressed us positively for the richness of its functions and for its reactivity, it has a reaction time of only 0.002 seconds. In our opinion, less convincing was the management of the battery, above all for the head-coils supplied to this tank, which impose medium-high wattages and consequently contribute not a little to drastically reduce the battery autonomy.
Among the many features available, the Luxe Nano is equipped with the important “passthrough” mode, which interrupts the battery charge if you decide to activate and vape with the mod on charge. There are also other typical features, such as short-circuit protection, the stop after 10 seconds of uninterrupted use and the blocking of the circuit in the presence of too low resistances (min 0.03 ohms).
Continuing with the overview of the other features of Luxe Nano, it seems right to mention the many ways of vaping:
– VW wattage mode;
– CCW custom curve wattage mode;
– VV vari volt mode;
– CVV custom curve mode volt;
– TC temperature control mode for stainless steel (SS), Nickel (Ni) and titanium (Ti);
– BP bypass mode;
– SMART intelligent mode with variable power that varies the intensity based on the resistive values read by the circuit.
Finally, for those who love to indulge in customizing the appearance of the display of the box, we say that you can change the brightness of the display and the intensity of the lights, change the intensity of the vibration or exclude it altogether, adjust and choose from some clock display options and set the time of the “screen timeout” from a minimum of 5 seconds to a maximum of 60 minutes.
EASE OF USE
If you limit yourself to a use this box in the classic power mode, then the Luxe Nano is very simple. Apart from the canonical five clicks to turn the mod on and off, simply adjust the vaporizing power (in increments of 1 w) using the two illuminated dots at the bottom, on the sides of the Vaporesso symbol, and remember to lock the display with 3 clicks to avoid (as it is a touchscreen display) to change the selected settings. Naturally as we have already said in the previous paragraph, the Luxe Nano is equipped with many other functions, but to simplify vaping these simple and brief actions will be enough.
SKK-R TANK – FLAVOR
In this kit, the mod Luxe Nano has been combined with a head-coil atomizer: the SKRR-S mini tank. The one in our possession is the TPD version of the atomizer, so with a capacity of only 2 ml (there is a standard 3.5 ml version). The atom has a diameter of 24 mm and an overall height (excluding pin) of about 45 mm. This is an atomizer designed exclusively for a direct lung vape (DL) and the two coils present in the package confirm it: a 0.15 ohm QF strip coil (50-80W) and a 0.2 ohm QF meshed coil (50- 80W).
The image above technically illustrates the difference between the two coils supplied by Vaporesso, that is, in the type of mesh of the simil mesh that constitutes the coil. From a practical point of view, after having tried both, we can tell you that you can’t notice any major differences, so for example, they do not allow you to recognize the type of coil mounted simply by vaping.
The SKRR-S mini, like all the latest generation of tanks, recharges easily from above, after unscrewing the top cap of the atom. In this sense it must be said that, in order to further simplify the refill operations, the manufacturer could have chosen the sliding recharge system used in the SKRR atomizer supplied in the Luxe Kit.
The different vaping tests carried out with this SKRR-S mini tank made us observe with pleasure the production of thick and copious steam, while from the aromatic point of view the product, while gaining full sufficiency, resulted lower than our expectations. If we add that it is a TPD version of only 2 ml and that although simple, the refill involves the unscrewing of the top cap, you will understand if we say that in this kit, the atomizer is definitely the weak part.
To sum up, the Vaporesso Kit we have seen and tested for you is just unfinished: on one hand a multi-function entry level mod, small compact, elegant and very performing, on the other hand a DL sub-ohm tank with a capacity of only 2 ml (TPD version) and 3.5 ml (standard version) absolutely not very innovative and with an aromatic yield that does not make a miracle cry. According to The Flavourist’s judgment, Vaporesso should have included in this kit the SKRR atomizer present in the Luxe Kit, the eldest brother of this Luxe Nano Kit.
