There are times when I hate reviewing standalone sub-ohm tanks. The reason is simple; the technology has gotten so advanced that the gap between good and bad is shrinking to the point that nearly every tank performs brilliantly.
Because the differences in performance has gotten so slim, we’re forced to be more critical of devices themselves. Their ‘positives’ aren’t as prevalent as another device’s positives … like I had to do with the Wotofo NexMesh Pro sub-ohm tank below.
When choosing a new sub-ohm tank it is always a good idea to pick up a pack of replacement coils. At Element Vape you’ll find the replacement coils here. – Wotofo NexMesh Pro Coils
The Official Word
The Wotofo NexMesh PRO Sub-Ohm Tank, featuring a 6mL capacity, SS chassis construction, and utilizes an hybrid mesh and parallel coil combo. Holding up to 6mL with the bubble glass, the NexMesh PRO Tank is refillable from the top via sliding top fill system, revealing a single fill port.
With plenty of coil options to choose from, Wotofo offers an innovative dual coil head, constructed with both a parallel and mesh coil within to output superior vapor and flavor. At the base is a dual slotted bottom airflow control ring, allowing the user to meter the amount of airflow rushing through the epicenter of the installed coil.

Aesthetics of the Wotofo NexMesh Pro
Let me jump to the verdict right from the outset – the NexMesh Pro is a good vape tank, and earns a respectable “B-” score. The flavor and vapor are on par with a wide range of other options. The styling is attractive, if not a little derivative of more noteworthy tanks.
But there’s nothing about it that makes me rush out to buy it. There’s no standout feature or performance note that makes me want to pack up my Uwell or FreeMax tanks for the trash heap.
On top of this, the NexMesh looks an awful lot like the “new/old” SMOK TFV9 tank, save for a few extra millimeters of height, a slightly less bulbous bubble tank, and smooth metal where the SMOK has some cutouts. Otherwise, it’s a standard tank design, with no surprises or standout features. And we suppose that’s a good thing.
(I do feel the sliding top-fill port is much nicer than SMOK’s offering, with a firm but secure feel that never leaked or accidentally opened in my pocket.)
Finally, there’s the now standard Delrin drip tip, which does its job well enough. It stays cool on the lips but could be a touch longer and thicker to help you avoid any inadvertent contact with the top cap, which gets very hot at higher wattages.
Vaping the Wotofo NexMesh Pro Tank
For all the hype about capacity and design, the real stars of the NexMesh Pro tank are located inside the device. For starters, the thing proved to be pretty damn leak-proof during my two-week testing period. Other than the usual condensation that happens when temperatures change, this is one of the more reliable tanks in my collection, at least in this department.
Both the included 0.2-ohm coil and the 0.15-ohm coils were decent mid-wattage performers, with solid flavor and vapor performance. If I had to lean in one direction, I found the 0.2-ohm coil was slightly better overall, with brighter flavor and richer vapor. But it’s largely a toss-up.
When staying right in the middle of their stated ranges both coil heads were at their best. Though each was listed to go higher, I found that they started to scorch above 80 watts, regardless of which mod I had attached. This is a little misleading for newcomers, who might push them well past their actual limits.
In terms of longevity, the lower-resistance coil was slightly more durable, giving me a passable six days of performance before flavor started to wane. But neither is winning any endurance records, especially when compared to some of today’s better sub-ohm tanks. That said, juice consumption was surprisingly frugal considering how flavor-focused the tank tries to be.
The NexMesh Pro ‘Pros’:
- Frugal e-liquid consumption
- Proven, time-honored design choices
- Excellent sliding top cap
And the Cons:
- Been there/done that design
- Mediocre coil performance and longevity
- Cap gets hot at higher wattages
While it seems like I’m nonplussed by the Wotofo NexMesh Pro sub-ohm tank, I enjoyed using it while the experience lasted, because it’s a solid, no-frills tank that I chose for its flavor and light juice consumption.
Would I replace my collection of tanks in favor of the NexMesh Pro? Not likely. “Solid” means just that – a reliable product that does what it says it will. Most vapers will be more than satisfied with the tank, but there isn’t one superlative I can use about it, since it’s structured too similarly to many others, and performs right in the middle of that same pack.
