Innokin EQ: A Review by theCP! https://ift.tt/2NQI6kt

What’s up everybody? Today I’m gonna pop my review writing cherry, and I’m happy that you’re all here to share in this moment!

Since this is my first review, I’ll give you a bit of my background in vaping. I was a smoker for about 5 years before I tried switching to cigalike devices, which failed. As I went back to smoking, I learned more about vaping and eventually discovered the eGo devices and clearomizers in 2012. Over the 6 years since, I’ve used 2 different set ups for the bulk of the time. Mostly, I prefer middle of the road MTL (not too tight, not too loose) but can find enjoyment in airier, cloud focused devices. I’ve bought 3 mods and 6 atomizers since my Kanger Subox/Subtank Mini were retired in March of this year.

I won the Innokin EQ pod system from /u/AnxietyAttack2013 a couple weeks ago and have been using the EQ as my daily on-the-go device ever since I got it. As of writing, I’m at 19 days. The fact that this device was free to me, and that it was given to AA2013 by Innokin, will not impact my ability to give it a fair and honest review. The opinions herein are mine and mine alone. Enough about me. You’re here to learn about the EQ, not about theCP, amirite?

Overview

The Innokin EQ is a refillable, rechargeable pod system. The dimensions of it are 90 x 35 x 15mm. It sells for $24-$30 depending on vendor, with the replacement pods going for $4-5 each. Included, you get:

* 1 EQ Device (with built in rechargeable 800mAh battery)

* 1 refillable pod (.5ohm Plexus coil housed inside a 2ml cartridge)

* 1 micro USB charging cable

* 1 user manual

* 1 info packet (with safety and warranty info)

The main device has a nice smooth rubbery texture on it. The micro-usb charging port is on the bottom of the device, which allows for a clean design from all sides. The pod sits in the top of the device and is held by a strong magnet. The cap is firm, but not excessively tight. To remove the cap, you push it to unlock one side and it’ll come right off.

Filling and using

To fill the pod, pull the pod free from the device and flip it bottom up. You expose the fill ports by twisting the bottom cap 90 degrees. The fill ports are narrow, but big enough to stick the tip of a bottle into. I imagine using a glass bottle with a dropper would be troubling, but I didn’t try. The pods are pretty darkly tinted, so it can be difficult to see the fluid level. I like holding mine up to a light source (a window worked well). Additionally, the two inner segments of the pod are connected, but they don’t always fill evenly, so be careful not to over fill one side. Switch fill ports as needed, and you’ll be fine.

Powering the device on is done by pressing the fire button three times. The fire button will flash red, then white, then go out. Press three more times, and the device will power off. If you hold the power button for roughly 4 seconds, the color of the button will change to indicate whether you’re in low-power mode or high-power mode. Low-power, indicated by a white light, pushes 13.5 watts, whereas high-power mode runs at 15.5 watts. Both modes have worked well for me, with the 15.5 producing just a bit more vapor at a slightly warmer temperature. I’ve mostly used the low-power mode, though, as I did experience some dry hits with high-power using 60vg/40pg juice. This could also be attributed to the design of the pod. The airflow chimney and coil run vertically between the two sections, with a narrow gap connecting the two sections. After sitting in my pockets, sometimes the juice will move to one side of the pod. Once I realized this, I’ll check it and tip the system a bit to balance the fluid level before taking a couple drags.

Flavor, performance, and life

The flavor out of this pod system is good. I’ve only used one other pod system, and not frequently enough to compare. I can say that the flavor from the EQ is on par with my Siren v2 using the same juice. It works well with simple flavors, and can mute some of the more subtle flavors.

I had to replace my first pod after two weeks, which wound up being about 18-20ml of liquid. I’ll be very happy with that if it stays consistent. I’m only a few days into my second pod, so we will see!

Battery life has been good. I’ve had to recharge three times, but as I’ve said previously I don’t use this all day every day. Thankfully, it recharges in 60-90 minutes. The downside to battery life is the indicator. The LED in the fire button will change from white to red when the battery is low, but there’s no other indicator of life. By the time it goes red, you’ve got just a few more drags left before it needs to be recharged.

I have noticed some wear on the finish of the device. There are some spots around the bottom, as well as random scratches along the sides, where the rubberized finish is coming off. I will say, the metallic red underneath has a nice shine to it without the matte coating, so we’ll see how that goes 😊. I attribute this wear and tear to the fact that this is my “on the go” device, so it’s usually in a pocket with my keys. If I were to put it in a pocket all on its own, I’m sure this would be a non-issue.

Conclusion and wrap up

Overall, I’m very happy with the Innokin EQ. The coil life has been solid so far, the flavor is on par with my MTL RTA (using simple builds), and the size of it is hard to beat for portability. The rubberized finish is coming off in a few places, but I openly admit that I’m tough on my daily carries. If I’d bought the device myself, I’d say it was worth the money. If I’d had a device like this when I first tried switching from cigarettes, I could have saved a lot of time, money, and headache. I can think of no bigger compliment to give this pod system than that!

Thanks for reading my first review! I want to get better at these so I can contribute more to this great community, so please share any feedback you have!
