ABOUT XEO

I’d never actually tried anything by XEO before, but I had seen a few devices from the brand on Amazon. In fact, I’m pretty sure I looked at the VOID and considered it for an MTL vape pen, but didn’t end up buying it. 

I’m not sure if that’s a good or bad thing…?

The company is a German one, offering “German design and engineering”, but the devices themselves are actually put together in China. Designed in Germany. Made in China. The vape pen is said to be made with the “highest quality raw-materials”, though. 

I think it might be time to take a closer look … 

XEO VOID VAPORIZER 

Or, ya know, vaporiser, if you’re British. 

The all-in-one vape pen is available in a number of colours — black, burst silver, gunmetal grey, navy blue, white, pink, chameleon, aqua blue, light rose, and lime punch. 

XEO VOID Review 3

Vapour2 sent me the vape haul that this kit came in, with a pink VOID. I love it, like, a lot, but if I’d have purchased my own, I’d totally have gone with the chameleon one. I love a bit of rainbow. 

You’ll get this lot in the box: 

  • XEO VOID vaporizer with a built-in 2ml tank
  • 1 x 0.6-ohm sub-ohm coil
  • 1 x 1.0-ohm mouth-to-lung coil 
  • USB charger
  • Instruction manual 

I haven’t needed to use the instruction manual once. It’s VERY simple to use. I’ll get to that in a moment. 

The 1500mAh device weighs 83g, is 12cm long and about 2cm in diameter, but it’s not circular. It’s more of a curved, triangular shape. I don’t know the ‘proper’ word for such a shape, but feel free to let me know in the comments below.

I might make up a word.

Trianguloid.

How about that?

SAFETY SPECS

The XEO VOID is childproof, which also means it’s basically Kim-proof. In the same way that you would press down on a bottle of cough medicine before the top will open, you need to push down on the mouthpiece to unscrew it and refill.

It also has short circuit protection, atomizer protection, and low voltage protection … according to the instruction manual.

XEO VOID REVIEW 

Right, I’d best get my opinionated head on. (Ha, who am I kidding? I’m always opinionated.) 

I’m going to start things off by saying I had a lot of love for this AIO vape pen right from the start. Firstly, it’s pink. I love pink. I love the style of it in general, too. It’s not just the colour — I like the way it’s shaped, and the simplicity of the design.

Let’s start with that.

IN MY HAND 

The XEO VOID is actually really nice to hold. The odd, triangular shape makes it look a bit … weird, but it’s not as odd in your hand as you’d think. It’s shiny and smooth, but not TOO smooth and super slippery, and I like the AIO design. I’m a tank-smasher, so having the tank actually built into the design helps to stop that from happening. 

XEO VOID Review 5

It’s a heavy device. Heavier than most of the vape pens I have in my collection, but it’s not bulky-heavy or too much to hold. It feels really durable and high-quality — like an expensive bit of vape kit, ya know? I bet it could really take a beating … 

For the record, there’s not a single scratch on this thing. There’s not a dent. No chipped paintwork. Nada. It looks the same right now —  three months after I first pulled it out of the box — as it did brand new. 

TANK

This thing has the coolest feature EVER. I’ve never seen this particular feature on a device before, so please excuse me while I get royally excited. Also: feel free to let me know if you’ve discovered another vape device that does it too … 

When you press the button and the power light comes on, another light comes on at the same time. Guess where that light is! In fact, I’m just going to tell you. You won’t guess. It’s in the tank itself! It’s genius. Whether it’s daytime or nighttime, you can always see how much juice is left in the tank. It’s actually fricking illuminated. 

XEO VOID Review 6

It’s such a cool idea, and such a simple one, too. I can’t think why other brands aren’t doing it. A light inside the actual device, that illuminates the tank to make it easier to see how much eliquid is left inside it. Utterly genius. 

I can’t work out where the actual light comes from, but I think it’s right at the bottom of the 2ml tank. And it gets even more awesome … The light doesn’t just come on when you press the button. Just in case you miss the light in the tank as you’re vaping with it, it turns on and off for a few seconds afterwards, too.

WINDOWS

The windows are big enough for you to easily work out how much juice is left in the tank, and there’s one window on each of the three sides of the trianguloid. And again, in case I haven’t mentioned this enough yet: IT. LIGHTS. UP. The eliquid level is illuminated in the windows. 

XEO VOID Review 12

BUTTON

I’ve moaned about something in my last couple of reviews. It’s petty, yes, but it’s still something that bugs me a bit … 

Devices that have buttons with lights around them or on them, so when you’re pressing the button you can’t actually see the light — you’re COVERING the light. 

Let’s say, for example, you’re using the Vype ePen 3. When you press the button to vape on it, it lights up. You then use the colour of the light to work out how much battery power you have left and whether or not you need to charge it up. How are you meant to SEE the light when your thumb or finger covers it as you vape, though? 

The XEO VOID doesn’t have that problem. Just like the tank lights up AFTER you use it, flashing on and off slowly, so does the button. If you missed the flashing of the light around the button as you were using it, you’d be alerted to a low-battery status when you put it down. 

XEO VOID Review 7

It’s the smallest little thing — a couple of extra flashes of light — but it makes a lot of difference. I’ve missed the battery capacity colour-change from green to orange/red a few times, on a few different devices, because my finger or thumb covered the light as I used it. There’s no fear of missing the battery-low warning with this vape pen. 

The button itself is pretty easy to find, although the USB hole is at the same height on another ‘side’ of the device, so I find myself accidentally trying to press that to get it to work sometimes. It’s only a little niggle, and I’m still so amused by the lights in the tank and the additional flashing light that I’m willing to overlook it. 

Click it five times fast to turn it on and off. Standard. 

And that’s it. That’s all you’ve got. No modes to change. No fiddly stuff to figure out. Nice n’ easy. 

LIGHTS N’ STUFF

Everything flashes white five times when you turn it on and off.

When the battery capacity is between 60-100%,  the light/button will stay lit all the time you vape on it. When the battery capacity drops to 30-59%, the light/button flashes slowly. The flashing gets faster between 10-29%, and it goes blinker-bonkers when you get below 9%. 

When you plug the XEO VOID in and charge it up, the lights glow red, and they then turn off entirely once it is fully charged. 

If there is something wrong with the device such as coils not attached, low voltage, etc., the lights will flash. Short-circuiting means 5 flashes before the device turns itself off when you’re NOT vaping on it, and it’ll flash 3 times before resetting itself. The light will also flash a bunch of times (15) when the button has been pressed for too long. The cut-off on the VOID is 15 seconds. Low voltage will cause the light to flash 40 times (blimey) before turning itself off. I’ve not experienced ANY of these warnings. 

It’s a pretty expressive device for something that doesn’t have a screen. All of this information can be found in the instruction manual. (Look what happens when you actually read it!) 

COILS

As previously mentioned, the XEO VOID vape pen is both sub-ohm and mouth-to-lung compatible, something I particularly loved about it. I’m not so sure that I would buy just one device to offer both types of vaping (I like box mods for sub-ohm vaping, vape pens for MTL), but it is a good feature, particularly for new vapers. You can start off using the MTL coil, with MTL (lower-PG) eliquid, before then moving on to sub-ohm eliquid after a while, once you’re comfortable. If you don’t like one of the styles of vaping, you simply don’t buy those coils anymore. 

XEO VOID Review 8

The fact that you get both coils in the starter kit is fab because it means you can try both styles and then figure out what kind of vaper you’re going to be. I recently did a little poll on Twitter to find out the ratio of MTL and sub-ohm vapers, and it seems there are more people than I thought that are just like me — vaping both ways. It’s usually dependent on my mood. Angry stressed Kim needs high nicotine and an MTL vape. Chilled out Kim enjoys a nice, hearty sub-ohm vape, with lots o’ clouds. 

1.0-OHM COIL 

I used the 1.0-ohm MTL coil first, with Bohemium Custardy by T Juice. When that 10ml bottle ran out, I switched the liquid to Jac Vapour Originals American Blend (tobacco). The mix was a bit odd at first, but the old vanilla/new tobacco combo was actually really nice. Who knew? 

XEO VOID Review 16

I ended up using the same 1.0-ohm coil for weeks before I got bored and switched it out for the sub-ohm one, using the device every day for about a couple of weeks. It’s still one of my regular every day MTL vapes. If I weren’t reviewing a bunch of other devices at the same time, I actually think this one could easily be my all day, every day ACTUAL MTL vape device. It’s so easy to use and vape, I struggled to find crappy things to say about it.  

Anyway, getting back to the point, I reckon I probably got about three or four weeks of constant and fairly regular use of the MTL coil before I gave up on it to check out the 0.6-ohm sub-ohm coil. I *expect* MTL coils to last me at least two or three weeks, so anything longer than that is a massive bonus. 

XEO VOID Review 14

0.6-OHM COIL

I was still fairly impressed with the length of vape time I got out of the 0.6-ohm coil — just under two weeks. I didn’t sub-ohm with the XEO VOID quite as much as I MTL’ed it, so I would have wanted it to last a teensy bit longer than that, but it’s still pretty decent. I’d thrown so many different eliquid flavours in there by the end, I’m surprised it worked at all. Most of them were thick, gloopy eliquids, too. 

A 5-pack of XEO VOID Atomizer Heads (coils) will cost you £12.99. If an MTL coil lasts about three weeks, you’ll get close to four months of use out of just that one pack. A sub-ohm coil will give you about two weeks, so one 5-pack will offer between two and three months. (Estimates.)

Cheaper than smoking, chaps and chappettes. 

XEO VOID Review 15

REFILLING

So, I feel like I should tell you that I seriously overfilled the tank the first time I used it. Liquid squidged out all over the place when I put the mouthpiece and coil back in. The XEO VOID has a similar design to the Aspire PockeX. (Except, this one is better. The PockeX was a leaky piece of crap.) 

The ‘Max Fill’ level is about halfway up the glass on the tank, and I definitely recommend keeping an eye on it when you drip in your juice. The tank itself looks bigger than 2ml, so it’s easy to get carried away, but you MUST allow for the space that the coil will take up when you screw it back together again. 

XEO VOID Review 9

Refilling the tank is actually super simple. Just unscrew the mouthpiece, remove the mouthpiece + coil together, drip in your juice, and then screw everything back. There’s a child-proof lock, which I think means you need to push the mouthpiece down as you unscrew, but I’m being a bit slow in that department. No one else seems to have a problem unscrewing it, but I don’t think I push down hard enough. I find myself endlessly twisting the mouthpiece sometimes. Like I said, though: I’m the only one who seems to have the problem. Humph. 

XEO VOID Review 10

One tank of 50/50 eliquid + MTL coil lasted me exactly one day. I started using the device at 3 pm on Friday, two hours after it arrived, and I topped the tank up with juice again on Saturday at 3:30/4 pm. 

I’ve used high + 50/50 PG eliquids, with the MTL coil, with no problems. I’ve used high-VG eliquids, with the sub-ohm coil, with no problems. And I’ve also used CBD eliquids and oils, with the MTL coil, with no problems. 

Literally … no problems. I’m almost bored. 

MOUTHPIECE

The XEO VOID has a changeable mouthpiece — you can take it out and replace it with another one. It *looks like* the entire mouthpiece screws on to the mainframe of the vape pen, but it pulls off to reveal a standard drip tip combo. I used the standard mouthpiece that came with it for mouth-to-lung vaping, but when I changed the coil to a sub-ohm one, I think a wider mouthpiece worked better. I took out the one it came with and replaced it with a different, wider one I had hanging around. (I’m not sure where it came from, but it’s the same one that fits in my Aspire Gusto Mini.)

XEO VOID Review 11

CHARGING

I liked that the USB hole was on the side of the device and not the bottom. My devices always seem to leak when they lie down to charge, so I would probably avoid buying a vape pen that had a USB hole bit at the bottom that meant you HAD to lie it down. That’s just because of my own experiences with other devices, though. Little personal thing. 

I seemed to miss the fully-charged light-turn-off every damn time, but I *think* the device charges up completely after about an hour and a half of plugging it in. 

Can you use the XEO VOID as a pass-through device? 

Let me just try it … 

Yes, you can. 

XEO VOID Review 13

BATTERY

When you sub-ohm with the XEO VOID, the 1500mAh battery capacity doesn’t last for long. You’ll get a ‘working day’ out of it — vaping in the morning, at lunchtime, and then for a few hours in the evening, but if you’re an all-day chain-puffer, you may find that it’s not quite enough. I’m an all-day chain-puffer, on writing days, and there was one day when the I depleted a fully-charged battery in just over a couple of hours. 

If you’re using the XEO VOID as a mouth-to-lung device, on the other hand, you’ll get some decent battery life out of it. I initially predicted that I would get about 13-15 hours of fairly regular vaping before it needed charging up, but a fully-charged battery actually lasted me closer to a couple of days. In terms of ‘working days’, I reckon you’ll get two to three days out of it.

ACTUAL VAPING …

The mouth-to-lung side of things offered no problems whatsoever, but I did have a few up n’ down moments with the sub-ohm coil installed. I couldn’t work out whether or not there was a changeable airflow bit on the VOID, to start with. I didn’t feel the need to change it the MTL way, but I needed more air intake — a wider airflow hole — to sub-ohm vape comfortably. 

The top part of the vape (the bit you’d unscrew to refill or change the coil) spins around and around, so I figured that bit was the bit I was looking for, but no amount of twisting seemed to change how much air was pulled through. I took a quick peek at the instruction manual, which states:

“Rotate the ring on the atomizer cap clockwise or counterclockwise to adjust the air inflow. The air inflow will decrease/increase when turning left or right.”

Will it? 

Let me try again right now. 

Twisty-twisty-twisty.

Okay, I think I’ve figured it out, but I had to inhale and twist at the same time to work out how much air was being pulled through. There are no visible signs of what’s going on. Twisting and inhaling at the same time is harder than you’d think. Also, the VOID’s battery conked out mid-experiment, so … 🤬

XEO VOID Review 17

I think the airflow is quite restricted no matter how many times you spin the damn thing around, but there is a bit of a difference between open and closed. There must be another way to figure it out than inhaling and twisting at the same time, though? There’s also no way to keep the spinny bit in its place. One little bump and it moves a fraction, and you’re right back at the beginning again. 

🤬🤬

I would *personally* use this as more of a mouth-to-lung vape than a big cloud-chucker. The 1500mAh battery does the job pretty well, but those big clouds use the power up quite quickly. If you’re sub-ohm chain-puffing, you’re only going to get a few hours out of a fully-charged VOID battery, but you’ll get a good couple of days of on/off MTL usage. (Such as a “working day”.)

I also don’t think the VOID generates massive amounts of cloud, but I didn’t really expect it to. For a vape pen, it does a decent job. I prefer more air intake for sub-OMG vaping, though, and I just couldn’t find a “sweet spot” on the spinny-twisty bit. Every time I thought I might have found it, the spinny bit got nudged and it was back to super restrictive again. 

Looking at things from a slightly different angle, Mister best-ecig actually managed a little bit of sub-ohm use with the XEO VOID. I don’t tend to make him attempt big cloud vaping, because he’s still trying to get over the cough-factor of MTL vaping. Big clouds would probably kill him off. We don’t want that. But the restrictive airflow of the VOID actually made things a little easier for him; it was less cough-inducing. For that alone, I’d definitely recommend something like this vape pen for a new sub-ohm vaper. Perhaps someone who has been MTL vaping for a while but wants to try something new and bigger? It’s also more discreet, vapour-wise, than bigger box mod + tank combo’s, so it would make a good down-low vape.

For when you’re absolutely NOT vaping in places that you shouldn’t …

 XEO VOID Review 1

XEO VOID REVIEW – CONCLUSION 

I honestly had the hardest time trying to find fault with this ‘trianguloid’ vape pen. (Yes, I’m sticking with the word.) It vaped fabulously every time I used it, and it does appear to be 100% leak-proof, just as the company claims. I flicked it, threw it, kept it on its side, held it upside down, stashed it in my pocket, and even dropped it off the desk, and I still didn’t find a drop of leakage. 

The device is sold for £39.99, which isn’t actually that bad at all. I would absolutely pay that for it and half-expected it to be more expensive than that. It offers both MTL and sub-ohm vape styles with just the change of a coil, and you get the opportunity to try both styles right away with one of each in the box. I prefer it as an MTL device, but it does hold its own on the sub-ohm side of things, and that whole illuminated-tank business really won me over. What a neat little feature! 

The XEO VOID’s airflow bit was a bit of a pain in the ass for sub-ohm vaping, but that’s it as far as flaws are concerned. I actually really love it. It feels nice and the absolute opposite of cheap or plastic, and it’s super durable. No leaks, no hissing and spitting, no problems.

PROS 👍🏻

  • Vapes like a dream (MTL)
  • Sleek, fab-looking design/shape
  • Built-in tank (no smashes!)
  • Long-lasting battery (for MTL)
  • Super simple to use
  • Excellent for new vapers/quitters
  • Feels good quality & durable

CONS 👎🏻

  • Airflow is a bit awkward for sub-ohming
  • I sometimes push the USB hole rather than the battery 
  • Battery life is quite short when sub-ohm vaping 

That’s gotta be the shortest cons list I’ve written in a while!

🌟 I’m giving the XEO VOID 4.5 stars out of 5! 🌟

  1. I have a VOID, and want to buy a second device for back up, so should it be another VOID, or something different.

    I love the “trianguloid” shape – it stands up on its end without falling over, even while charging, and doesn’t roll off smooth surfaces when lying down.

    On the other hand, as you report, the airflow control is rubbish, and, quite often, I find the childproof top also seems to be Paul proof.

    Did you report these issues to the manufacturer?

  2. Absolute rubbish product, it is difficult to open and mine stopped working after 3 weeks. Yes after three weeks it broke and won’t even turn on anymore. Stay away from this piece of junk!

    • Dear Michael you have been wonderfully consistent at reporting on multiple sites how awful this pen is…I have one coming non refundable so is a concern to me.
      Where did you buy yours?
      Why could you not return it?
      How much did you pay?
