Finally, finally, finally … I’d been waiting for Vype, or GoVype, to make a new vape announcement and finally they have gone and made it! It was only a matter of time, right? They had the cigalikes and the eTank, the ePen (although that was rubbish), and then they had the eBox – the box that had so much promise and just couldn’t handle the pressure. Such a shame …
But now there’s something new on the table – the Vype eTank Pro, and at first, I got super excited about it.
My first impressions upon looking at this device was that it was going to be a sub ohm device. It’s not. It uses ‘regular’ vape liquid rather than the sub-ohm eliquid, and it uses a 1.5ohm coil too. Nope, definitely not a sub ohm device.
How disappointing 🙁
It’s fixed wattage – 14W, has a 2ml glass tank, and a 1,000mAh capacity battery. So essentially, it’s the Vype eBox but in a better (hopefully working) order? Oh no, wait. The Vype eBox has a variable wattage of 4W to 12W, a 2,000mAh capacity battery, a 2.1ohm coil, and 11 wicks. You know, because one just isn’t enough. (I say that, I really enjoyed vaping with it until it broke.)
The eBox is £44.99, the eTank Pro is £24.99 … So yeah, there’s the price to think about as well.
So what’s the difference? What was the point in releasing another ‘regular’ vape device? I know the higher wattage will mean more clouds but even still, it won’t be quite in the same leagues as the cloud-chasers, and that’s the one thing I feel the brand is missing. As much as I love ‘regular’ vaping, I do sub-ohm vape from time to time and I really enjoy it. If they’d offered this eTank Pro in a sub-ohm model, I would have snapped it up in a heartbeat.
I guess the Vype eTank Pro is just the eTank but pro’d up. The name probably should have given it away. And let’s be honest about this, I really did like the Vype eTank when I used it, definitely more so than the first ePen that I tried, so if this is just a beefier, more powerful version of it, I’m bound to like this one too … right? Lots of questions here, lots of questions.
For £24.99, compared to £17.99 for the original Vype eTank, the eTank Pro’s actually not a bad kit. The 1,000mAh battery will give you probably around eight to ten hours of ‘regular’ vaping usage before it conks out, and it’ll only take a couple of hours to charge up again (if that), making it great for a first-time vaper who wants something more than your average beginner’s tank, or for heavy smokers perhaps? Or maybe even perfect for those who’s already used the eTank and liked it, and are now looking for an upgrade?
Am I going to buy and try the Vype eTank Pro? Probably. I’ve tried the rest of the range so surely it just makes sense to give this one a shot too? At £24.99 it’s hardly going to break the bank, and I *did* like the Vype eTank, and the eBox too before it became unusable.
