All HAIL! Sorry, folks, but my inner Viking got a hold of me for a minute. Maybe it’s because I saw some old school heavy metal the other night. Maybe it’s because I still wish Thor never got fat in “Endgame.” Or maybe it’s because the bold, authoritative Asmodus Amighty is my new favorite mod of 2019.
And here’s a spoiler – it would take a mod as mighty as Mjölnir to get me to change my mind. First, I’ll let Element Vape describe this beast. Then I’ll explain why you should own the Amighty kit the instant you get the chance.
The asMODus Amighty 100W Starter Kit is a sensational high-performance box mod system, implementing a single 21700 / 20700 / 18650 platform with integrated GX-100UTC chipset with extensive temperature control suite and paired with the asMODus Viento Sub-Ohm Tank. Crafted from durable stainless steel with pyrex reinforcements, the Viento Sub-Ohm Tank features plenty of safeguards to prevent breakage during falls and drops.
Reads sort of dull, I know, but trust me, it is anything but…

Strong… commanding… tough. All good adjectives for the single 21700-compatible Amighty – a mod that somehow stands taller than most mods, is wide enough to handle 30mm atomizers without overhang, and yet never feels uncomfortable or unwieldy. Hell, you might even be fooled into thinking this is a much higher wattage device… but once you try it, you’ll realize you really don’t need much more power than this.
My gunmetal test model (it also comes in gloss black) was polished to a pristine shine, offset by a nice carbon fiber grip section, a recessed (but still clicky) fire key, and even a touch-enabled screen to keep the visual presentation as clean as possible.
The 510 connection and battery door are – as expected – nearly perfect, with zero play or wobble evident during my extended testing period. All atomizers sat flush on the spring-loaded 510 pin, and the battery door locked into place without requiring any additional clips, sliders, magnets or bubble gum. The Amighty is precision-crafted and built to fit, period.
Even the companion Viento 5mL sub-ohm tank is an ideal match for the mod kit, with a broad, bold, unique look that allows it to stand out in any collection, especially when attached to this device.
If I have ANY qualms about the visual aesthetic, it’s the recessed, cutout “Asmodus” logo running vertically up both sides of the Amighty mod. While I get the need for branding, I (not so) secretly wished that Asmodus would have limited the self-promotion to the logo icon on the fire button. The device is just too clean and mean to need a block letter company name here.
For the second time in as many weeks, a single-21700 device has blown me away with its battery life. It wasn’t that long ago that I reviewed every big-battery mod with a statement about how “unnecessary” these oversized cells were becoming. But lately, we’ve seen a real resurgence in the format, resulting in high-performing mods that allow for more unique body designs, thanks to the single-cell configuration. And if the Asmodus Amighty isn’t as good as the awesome VandyVape Jackaroo, it’s too close to call.
Using a freshly charged 21700, the Amighty gave me most of a workday vaping steadily before having to recharge. And it did it without ever sputtering, even when battery life dipped below 20%. It was potent, measured and powerful throughout my day… and it even recharged quickly using the onboard 2-amp option.
The Amighty also uses 20700 cells and 18650 cells (with included adapter) to good effect, but for maximum lifespan dust off those 21700s.
Also, I need to give a quick mention of the narrow but versatile touchscreen, which makes good use of the available real estate without becoming a crutch for the mod. All of the onscreen menu options are clearly delineated after unlocking the display with a quick downward swipe. There, you can navigate easily between power modes, custom curves, TCR and the like, changing features with a few taps. No awkward button presses or unclear hold times, just tap and go.
Vaping the Asmodus Amighty Mod Kit
It’s been a positive year for complete mod kits, thanks to a slew of tanks that rise above their mediocre reputation to deliver top-tier flavor and vapor performance, while also working effortlessly with their companion devices. The best one yet is the 27mm Asmodus Viento sub-ohm tank – a burly-looking tank that performs well enough using the included coils, and even better with SMOK TFV12 coils.
Maybe the included heads weren’t quite as good as SMOK’s venerable stalwarts, but while they last, they provide better-than-average flavor and warm, thick vapor. However, for versatility alone, I have to give a few extra hat tips to the Viento, which gives a rock-solid experience at mid-range wattages.
The Amighty as a whole is a stronger performer at its 50-75 watt range, rather than cranking it to its 100-watt max output. Not that there’s anything wrong with the mod when cranked (other than the obvious battery life depletion) but the mod just seems smoother and happier when not pushing itself.
And to be honest, you won’t need that extra power anyway. I talk a lot about “overhead” on these pages, but the truth is, if you can’t find a way to enjoy warm, satisfying vape quality at 50-100 watts, you’re probably doing this wrong.
No matter whether it was in temp control or straight wattage modes, the Amighty performed flawlessly, with no missteps or hiccups along the way. The touchscreen makes it easy to switch to different features, and I never once had issues with resistances or jumpy coil readings.
– Stellar design and feel
– Can accommodate a wide range of tanks without feeling awkward
– Unreal battery life
– Weird logo cutout
– Only two color options
– Not nearly as good with 20700 or 18650 cells
Go out and buy the Asmodus Amighty mod kit. That’s about as emphatic a statement as I’ve made on these pages in a long time. But it’s well-warranted here. The Amighty does an absolutely fantastic job delivering a high-powered vape without excessively high wattages, or ridiculously low battery life. It looks amazing, is built like a Swiss watch and can accommodate any type of equipment – or vaping style – you can throw at it. Few devices (much less kits) have earned an A+ quite like this one.
