Innokin Endura T18 Vaporizer Kit Review
Endura T18 Starter Kit – $29.99
The sleek and design of the Endura T18 Starter Kit is not only a sublime vaporizer for new vapers, it makes for a terrific backup system for advanced vapers who might be looking for something to take along to public events, or other places that frown on cloud chasing. Of course, it doesn’t matter a wit that the Endura T18 is sleek, simple, or damned sexy if the vaporizer doesn’t perform, right?
Before moving on with the review I think it’s fair to say that if you insist on being able to “lung hit” vape then the Endura T18 is not going to be something you want pick up, but if you enjoy, even sometimes, the relaxing style of mouth-to-lung vaping, then this very affordable starter kit is almost a “must-buy”. I say almost because, let’s face it, nothing is really a “must-buy”, you know? But this is close.
The Endura T18, in pink, teal, black, or stainless steel is just $29.95 at MyVaporStore
The Innokin ENDURA T18 delivers a vape experience that rivals any mouth-to-lung vaporizer on the market, producing the utmost in flavor, and a decent amount of vapor at a price that would be considered low anywhere.
The Endura T18 is optimized to deliver 14 Watts with a 1.5ohm replaceable coils. It’s Prism T18 2.5ml Tank is a glass and stainless steel constructed tank, and has a top-fill system for quick, clean refills. The coils use Japanese organic cotton for wicking material which undoubtedly helps to deliver that truly marvelous flavor from any and all eliquids.
The Endura T18 doesn’t cheap out on the advanced safety protections and it does a good job guarding against any overheating and over discharging, making it a safe and reliable device from vaping with it to charging it.
The battery itself has a capacity of 1000mAh, which is the bare minimum, and is charged by way of a standard Micro USB cable and features pass-through technology so you can vape while charging, something I do all the time with various devices and my computer.
The Innokin ENDURA T18 Starter Kit is an all-in-one vaporizer, competing against other devices similar to the eGo ONE series by Joyetech. As a matter of fact, after setting it up and using it for several days (well, mostly evening actually), I was quite surprised by how the quality is every bit as good as the more expensive Joyetech eGo ONE. Granted, the eGo ONE series offers various battery capacities, the lowest being 1100mAh, but for the price, the Endura will be major hit for Innokin. Additionally, the eGo ONE series includes coil heads that allow for massive lung hit vaping, so the appeal to “all” vapers is higher with the eGo ONE. If the Endura T18 is a hit with vapers I’m sure we’ll begin to see more models with higher capacity batteries, and maybe even a larger capacity tank and varied coils.
Coil Heads of the Endura
Right now the Endura T18 uses a single 1.5-ohm coilhead ($1.75 a piece). It is designed to function as a mouth-to-lung device only, but even so, what I found really impressive was the amount of wicking in the coil. I found these coils to be very effective against dry burns simply because with the amount of organic cotton in the coil that prevents it from hitting dry unless someone vapes with it on ‘empty’ for an extended period of time. I can only hope that with success, Innokin will find it advantageous to create coils in the sub-ohm range with lung hit capability. While it works fantastically well as a mouth-to-lung device, why limit the appeal? Of course, to offer a sub-ohm coil the wattage setting has to be more than 14 watts. I guess what I’m saying is that the Endura styling can be used as a template for different vaping options.
Lastly, after filling the T18 tank with your favorite eliquid you should wait a full 5 minutes at least before vaping. This is because the organic cotton is really packed in. Do not overfill or you’ll see some leaking or hear some ‘gurgling’ until you’ve vaporized enough eliquid to bring the level back under the overfill line. I found the first coil head to last more than a week, in fact I’m still using it. From the quality of the vape I’m still getting when I vape, I would estimate a lifespan of the coil head to be at least 2 weeks, depending on the amount of vaping you do.

But, if you are looking for a sleek stealthy vaporizer then by all means the Endura can do the job, for less than the eGo One series. (1100mAh eGo ONE is $42.95)
The Perfect Stocking Stuffer
Innokin is aiming the Endura T18 at new vapers as the main focus. During the holiday season I would definitely recommend picking some up for any smokers you might know, even if they’ve never mentioned switching to vaping. The cost won’t break you, and seeing the Endura T18 on Christmas morning might just nudge the smoker in the life enough to give it a while. Just don’t forget to include a bottle or two of eJuice, something you think your smoking friends might like. I would bet that a smoker would find it intriguing enough to try it, and from my experience with it, they could easily see the Endura T18 as a way out of the deadly world of tobacco cigarettes. Now isn’t that a great gift?
