Vaporesso Tarot Nano 80W Starter Kit Review
Vaporesso Tarot Nano 80W Starter Kit - Too small to be this good, surely?!
Vaporesso have always been one of those manufacturers who’ve sat just below the market leaders Smok and Wismec when it comes to public awareness and they’ve always thrived in that environment due to the lack of expectation with regards to a new product every second month.
The result of this is that they’ve had time to develop their style and ensure that all of their products have that unmistakeable Vaporesso feel as soon as you take it out of the box - Never has this been more apparent that with the Tarot Nano Kit.
What’s in The Box
1 x Vaporesso Tarot Nano Mod
1 x Vaporesso Veco Sub Ohm Tank
1 x 0.4ohm Traditional EUC Clapton – 40 - 50W
1 x 0.5ohm Traditional EUC Clapton – 35 - 40W
1 x Replacement Pyrex Glass
1 x USB Charging Cable
1 x User Manual
If there’s one thing that’s impossible to miss when you first open the box and see the kit in all its glory, it’s just how tiny this 80W kit is! Specifically the mod itself, standing at just shy of 70mm tall and only 38mm wide Vaporesso have managed to squeeze a 2500mAh battery into the small chassis making the Vaporesso Tarot Nano Box Mod Kit even more remarkable.
Another thing to note on the topic of the size, is that it fits well in the hand - Whilst it may be slightly on the small size for those of you with larger hands, it does become perfectly discreet for the ego conscience vaper.
Lastly, and ironically probably the first thing you’ll notice is just how good this device looks. The sample kit I had was the Red/Carbon Fibre finish, which was beautifully complemented by the stainless steel accents and buttons. Given it’s such a tiny device there’s not a huge amount to appreciate in terms of the aesthetic, however, going off of what there is to appreciate, it is definitely one of the best looking nano box mods on the market today.
As a micro mod, most people may worry about the screen size, however the Tarot Nano has an incredibly bright and informative screen and despite the mods small stature the OLED display, which is informative and easy to navigate, is actually the same size as the average larger mod we are all used to.
Inside Vaporesso’s OMNI board, which is utilized in most of the recent devices, brings with it all of the features found on Vaporesso’s Attitude kit, including all six modes (Curve Modes in Wattage and Temperature, Bypass, Smart Variable Wattage, Manual TCR and the now standard Variable Wattage) so again although tiny the feature list isn’t.
The Veco Tank which is included as part of the kit is also incredibly small, which is conducive to boosting flavour, but retains the TPD Compliant capacity of 2ml and comes with the options of Vaporesso’s EUC Clapton Coils (Available in 0.4 & 0.5 ohm), or the EUC 0.5 Ohm Ceramic SS316L, all of which will perform differently and be tailored to an individuals’ preferences, however I found that the 0.5 Ohm Clapton coil worked best with regards to flavour vs. battery life.
On the subject of battery life, while the kit does feature an internal 2500mAh rechargeable battery, you may find that at the upper extent of the devices ability, 65w+ you may struggle to get a full day out of the battery. That of course is subjective as everyone vapes differently, however I found predominantly down to the fact that I tend to chain vape all day long that the battery seemed to die off by late-afternoon. Some may view that as a con as I did a little but then I can and do vape all day at work whereas most may not be able to - So I guess you’ll have to judge this for yourself and decide whether the Tarot Nano suit your style of vaping.
- It’s incredibly small, ideal for discreet vaping or carrying in your pocket
- The wattage range is incredible when compared to how small this device is
- The Veco tank has an excellent choice of coils and provides incredible flavour
- The Tarot Nano utilises Vaporesso’s OMNI Board and has a plethora of features.
- People with larger hands may find the device a little small
- The battery won’t last all day if you’re a chain-vaper
As a kit, the Vaporesso Tarot Nano comes with everything you could possibly want from a beginner’s device and has performance that will put many intermediate kits and devices to shame. If you can look past the possible battery life issues, you’ll have a device that will handle the vast majority of situations you throw at it in its stride, and look good doing so.
