Today we will be bringing you a first look and overview of the Vapor Tech Moto Plus Sub Ohm Starter kit. This 50 watt device with smart coil technology decides the optimal power for the size of the coil you install. There is no guessing game of trying to figure out the sweet spot, the device does it for you. We received the device, took it out of the box and gave it a spin for 12 hours. This is not a long-term review but what a user can expect when purchasing the Moto Plus from Vapor Tech.
At first glance, the Moto Plus from Vapor Tech could honestly be mistaken for a mechanical tube mod with a matching tank attached to the top. My first thought when I took this out of a large package that was delivered in the mail was actually who is selling a tube and tank combination.. It took about 30 seconds of reading to get my initial shock and anger to turn into intrigue, if this device could deliver what was promised on the back of the box it may be something I use on a regular basis. From a choice of 4 colors: dark blue, white, black and shocking pink, I had received the dark blue. The regulated mod, tank and drip tip all matched beautifully, the only thing breaking from the coated exterior was the brushed aluminum finish around the top of the tank, the airflow control and the base of the battery unit. The small button on the side of the tube is reminiscent of an ego button from way back when, but in all honesty, that is about as close to a starter kit that this beast comes.
In the plastic case you will find:
- 1 x Moto battery
- 1 x Moto tank system
- 1 x 0.5 Ω coil
- 1 x 0.3 Ω coil
- 1 x warranty card
- 1 x USB cable
- 1 x user manual
The Moto Tank System
Simplicity is key for this whole device. The 4 millilitre tank is ample for a few of hours, during 8 hours of solid use I filled the tank twice. It is 22 mm wide and sits flush with the base unit. As a sub ohm tank, you would expect airflow and this does not disappoint. A twist ring around the bottom reveals massive airflow channels on each side, while the ring clicks to give you an idea of which of the airflow options are being used. The vertical coils have juice flow ports that are on par with many of the top-selling sub ohm tanks currently on the market. I put Max VG juice into the system, just to see how many hits it would take to get the dry hits going. It is set up so well I managed to empty a tank of 90% vg e-liquid without it missing a beat. The fact that this tank allows for great juice flow and massive airflow means that the clouds you get are consistently think and creamy.
The Moto Battery System
They may call it a battery pack, I call it a pretty impressive mod. The fact that it automatically adjusts wattage depending on the size of coil you are using is a great plus point for beginners who are getting used to the idea of vaping and experienced vapers alike. Place a high-end APV into the hands of a new vaper and the learning curve is so steep they have gone through 5 coils before they know whats going on. There are no guessing games with the Moto, even if you don’t use it with the tank, it will self regulate wattage as it fires down to a low of 0.2 Ω. The system uses a built-in battery pack, 2600 MAH, which is charged through a micro usb port at the bottom of the device. Although the manufacturers say it can be used while being charged using pass through technology this is something I never recommend on any device. A full charge will last 6-7 hours of moderate vaping. 5 clicks turns you on, then its fire at will until you see the white light surrounding the fire button turn red. At that point, plug the usb cord into a socket rated at a maximum of 1.5 Amps and wait for the red light to go off. The system has built-in protection to prevent over charging, so as long as you don’t try to use a 5 Amp charger, the device will keep you happy for a while.
24 hours and 6 full tanks of e-liquid in, the device seems solid. It hasn’t failed to fire once (except when the battery told me it needed to be recharged and exchanging the tank for an rda built to 0.44Ω gave it no problems at all. Although this is a new acquisition I believe I would recommend it to a new vaper.
As always, enjoy your vaporizer and vape safe!
