I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing several Council of Vapor products over the last year, and enjoyed them all. However, I haven’t yet had the chance to review a high-powered Mod from the company, so I’m thrilled to try to the Council of Vapor XION 240W touchscreen Mod when it comes in later this week.


The dual-18650 XION is the first-ever touchscreen Mod from Council of Vapor, and – if the spec sheet is to be believed – it’s got a lot to like by vapers of all types.


First off, the bright and colorful 1.45-inch TFT touchscreen display is an immediate highlight, as the onscreen UI appears to have a wealth of information – much of which seems to be touch-activated. At first glance, the display seems to have a simplified interface, not unlike the fantastic HCigar Towis screen, which floored us last month. It’s not the largest touchscreen Mod screen we’ve seen to date, but it certainly looks like one of the most intuitive.

The rest of the XION touchscreen Mod appears to be built of sturdy and durable zinc alloy, with just enough carbon fiber accents to give the device a higher-end look and feel. But perhaps the most interesting element of the XION design is the presence of two different firing buttons – a smaller, traditional square button, and a full-length firing bar right beneath it.


This is a unique approach, likely designed to accommodate a wider range of vapers, but I have to question the reasoning of putting them next to one another, rather than more distinct positioning to appease both trigger-grips and finger-grips. We’ll be sure to spend some time with both buttons to see which is more intuitive.


Under the hood, the Council of Vapor XION touchscreen Mod has a lot to discuss, starting with the advanced chipset that boasts of 240-watt output on just two 18650 cells. As you likely know from reading these pages, claims like this rarely come to fruition without some hiccups along the way. However, we’re also confident that a company like Council of Vapor isn’t creating false claims just to generate press. The verdict will come soon enough…


One thing that isn’t debatable is the safety measures Council of Vapor has added to the XION. Yes, this is an advanced vaping device, but with a list of features including Reverse Battery Protection, Short Circuit Protection, Low Resistance Protection, Output Over Current Protection, Over Charging Protection, Over Time Protection and more, the XION is clearly aimed at experienced vapers, but with caveats in place for newcomers, as well.

Beyond power, the XION chipset will have support for full temperature control capabilities, including nickel (Ni200), titanium and stainless steel (SS316) coils, alongside the usual TCR adjustment options. The XION touchscreen Mod will also feature a special “BOOST” Mode, but we’re unclear of its purpose at this time. Our gut instinct tells us this is nothing more than a preheat/puff strength adjustment, but our fingers are crossed it adds something more to the vaping experience.

In Addition to that Touchscreen...

Though we’re not sure which version of the XION touchscreen Mod we’re going to get this week, but Council of Vapor is also releasing the XION as part of a complete starter kit, which will include a 23.5mm sub-ohm tank called the XILO.


This 3.1mL tank seems like a nice accompaniment to the XION look and feel, but has some standout features of its own, including a hinged, sliding top-fill cap, wide-open bottom airflow ring, and a pair of VERY interesting 0.4-ohm XILO coils, which have a broad rating for 20-80 watts. Is this a coil that could serve both MTL and direct-lung vapers? That might be a little much to expect, but we’ll certainly try it under all scenarios – that is, if we get one to review in the first place.


We expect the Council of Vapor XION touchscreen Mod to arrive on our desks in the next few days, with a complete review of the entire system right after. Stay tuned!
