Innokin calls their new Endura T20 the “Next generation Flavor Chasing Vaporizer”. Whether that’s true or not will be determined when it is officially released, and feedback starts to come in. We’re going to review the Endura T20, a MTL, or Mouth-To-Lung vaporizer when our shipment arrives. Until then, here’s what we know about the Endura T20, and maybe a little insight into Innokin’s mindset moving forward. (hint; high performance sub-ohm)
About the Endura T20
As you can see by the accompanying photo, the Innokin Endure T20 is quite the attractive vaporizer. It is supposed to be incredibly simple to use, just pop off the protective top cap, place the cap on the bottom of the device, click the power button three times to power the Endura T20 on, then enjoy as the flavor-optimized PRISM T20 Coil Heads create delicious clouds of flavor.
Way back in early December of 2015, Spinfuel VAPE reviewed the Endura T18, a pure MTL vaporizer that output a mere 14 watts to power a 1.5Ω replaceable coil (the Prism T18 Coil head). This too was advertised as a Flavor Chaser, but for “new” vapers. At $29.99 when introduced, we haven’t heard much about it after that. Whether that portends the ultimate success of the Endura T20 remains to be seen, but, our publisher gave the T18 a pretty high score. With the slightly less powerful Endura T20, perhaps it too will earn a place on Vaper’s shelves, nightstands, pockets, or wherever one puts a vaporizer like this. Perhaps.
The “vape” of the Endura T20 is said to be smoother, with a more open draw than the Endura T18 and focused even more on the delivery of flavor, thanks to the new PRISM T20 coils. In addition, the new coils are said to be designed and fully tested to wick better with HighVG eliquids. If that is the case, we’re looking forward to this one.
The Top Cap is made of heat resistant Delrin, and is said to be easy to twist open to fill. Because of the ridiculous restrictions laid out by the TPD compliance law, the Endura T20 holds just 2ml of ejuice in the Prism T20 tank. (someday we’ll look back and either law, or cry, about these stupid, unreasonable, and hysterical restrictions in the US and UK corrupt governments.) Vaping a HighVG vape juice in a 2mL tank means a lot of refills for most Vapers, but, what can you do? All manufacturers seem to be putting out 2mL tanks as an option.
To charge the Endura T20’s 1500mAh or 1000mAh internal battery the user attached the included MicroUSB cable. Innokin, as per their usual standards, has integrated many safety and charging protections into the T20, so if nothing else, the Endura T20 will be safe to use.
Concerns about the Endura T20
Without making any judgements, yet, about the performance of the Endura T20 it is interesting to note that the official specs we’ve seen for it say that the maximum wattage output is less than the Endura T18, 14w versus 13w, and the new PRISM T20 coil heads are rated the same 1.5Ω. Will users scream for more power from the Endura, or is 13W the magic number? We won’t know until we spend some time with it.
Innokin is that weird uncle we all have in our family tree, and this weird uncle’s family are the manufacturers putting out ten times the hardware that Innokin does, and their hardware seems to be more straightforward than the unfamiliar gear Innokin releases only a few times a year. Whether this is good or not, we have no idea. We’re told that Innokin is also releases a High Wattage Sub-Ohm Tank to compete with the likes of SMOK, Eleaf, and Joyetech, so perhaps Innokin is ready to get active again in the industry. A high-performance tank from Innokin, who has had the time to sit back and watch what the other members of their family are producing is intriguing as all get out. We cannot wait to get the Scion (the high-performance tank) into the hands of our reviewers. I’m getting off track here…
Spinfuel VAPE’s Endura T20 Concerns
- 1500mAh and 1000mAh – not a lot of battery life. We’ll test this for the review.
- 2mL tank – nothing to be done here, it is what it is.
- 1.5Ω Coil Heads – we suspect the PRISM T20 to look like the PRISM T18, but we need to know about the life of the coil, especially with HighVG vape juice. We’ll find out.
- MTL – Will the Endura T20 have the same restrictive airflow of the T18, or will Innokin truly allow a more lenient draw? No one want to pull hard to get a lung full of vapor, not matter how delicious it might be.
The upcoming Innokin Endura T20 vaporizer will be powered by Innokin’s A1 Chipset, so perhaps the PRISM T20 Kanthal coils will perform as advertised.
We cannot find the dimensions of the Endura T20, all we’re seeing is that is it “small in size, big in performance”. Maybe. We’ll soon see.
The Innokin Endura T20 vape pen will be available in four finishes; Black, Silver, Red and Blue. If the T20 is successful with the vape community perhaps Innokin will introduce the T20 in other colors, much like SMOK has done with their popular box mods and sub-ohm tanks. Vapor Authority has set a price for the device at $24.99
Vapor Authority will offer the Innokin Endura T20, very soon, and we’ll let you know when they have it.
