Vaporesso Xtra Review
Vaporesso Xtra Review
I’ve had my hands on the newest device from Vaporesso for a few weeks now and I am thoroughly impressed by just how well this pod works. The new Vaporesso Xtra follows the drop in pod approach to its design, with easy to swap magnetic base pod cartridges, but that’s where the pod device similarities end. A unique shape, fantastic flavor production, unheard of material, and sturdy 900mAh battery make the Xtra my top pick as the best pod device of the year so far!
So let’s get into it already, I’m sure you’re eager to hear why the Xtra is such an amazing pod device!
The Vaporesso Xtra brings a whole new look to the pod device world, from its asymmetrical rounded edges to the unique fabric material, I can’t say enough good things about how the Xtra is designed. The first thing I noticed when I pulled this device out of its box was the woven texture on the non-metallic side of the pod. I can’t think of a single vape device out there that utilizes a fabric material as decorative design and I’m loving it. There’s a nice textured feel to running your fingers across the surface of the pod, smoothy transitioning from a slick metallic finish to the silk-like fabric panels.
The rounded edge, while a bit funny looking at first, makes complete sense once you pick up the device. It’s designed in such a way to contour to the inside curve of your fingers while you hold it. It even comes equipped with a sturdy attachment point for lanyards so you can wear it around your neck during rock climbing and vape hands-free if you want to.
How It Works
One puff off the Vaporesso Xtra had me sold on the coil quality. I’m not sure what cotton they’re using, but whatever it is that's in the coils is giving the Xtra crystal clear E-Liquid taste. I tried a few different vape juice flavors with this pod, ranging from tropical fruit to sweet dessert, and every time I was getting just about the exact same flavor as I would from dripping those flavors onto an RDA. If you’re a flavor chaser looking to replace your Uwell Caliburn I’d say give the Xtra a try, the flavor production is right on par with the Caliburn/Koko pods.
A long-lasting 900mAh internal battery provides hours of power for all your vaping needs. Actually, unless you’re vaping 50mg salt nic 24/7, you should find that the Xtra lasts about 2-3 days in-between recharging.
So as far as pod devices go I think I’ve made my opinions clear over the last few years. The GeekVape Bident, with its dual coil cartridges, had the best flavor production out of any pod device at the time. Then came the Caliburn and Koko pod devices from Uwell and suddenly you could get almost as good of a flavor profile as the Bident without trading in kidneys to pay for coils. Now with the Xtra, I think it’s time to add another device to my best of pods list, this is one of the few vaping devices that I gave full 5/5 marks for when I was doing internal testing. I highly recommend you check the Vaporesso Xtra out when it hits our shelves.
