Vaporesso are well known for their high-quality builds as well as a multitude of great features. Their devices are beautifully designed, perform above and beyond expectations, and always feature some technical marvel that other mods just can’t compete with especially in regard to safety. Highly regarded within the vape world and this kit is no exception. Introducing the Armour Pro, that comes complete with the Cascade Baby Sub-Ohm Tank.The wattage range for the Armour Pro is 5 – 100 watts.
The Armour Pro is a whole new model for Vaporesso. On the smaller side for a mod, this unit needs only one external/removeable rechargeable battery to operate. 3 varieties of battery will work – 20700, 21700 or an 18650 (adapter included). A charging cable is provided in the kit, but it is generally recommended that you charge your batteries with an external charger to maintain the lifespan and integrity of your battery. With 2A Quick Charge capabilities, the Armour Pro will charge quite quickly if you chose to charge within the unit.
I love the screen on this mod, a 0.96” glorious colour screen (yay colour!) that sits along one side. So easy to read with every bit of information you could possible need – puff timer, puff counter, voltage level and resistance. The plus/minus and mode selection buttons are located beneath this screen. Another interesting point of difference with the Armour Pro is the fact that the screen is also the fire button – large and clicky!
Speaking of firing, the Omni Board 4.0 Chip comes with the most rapid/stable and safe firing rate of 0.002 seconds (Instafire). This is damn fast and is said to produce pure and rich flavour with every puff (oh and don’t forget the dense clouds!).
Safety is my thing, one of the main reasons that I rate Vaporesso so highly (also extremely sexy units in my opinion!), and the Armour Pro does not skimp on safety. The Omni Board 4.0 Chip located within is considered one of the most advanced regulated chips offering the following protections;
- Short circuit protection
- Low voltage protection
- No load protection
- Over temperature protection
- Low power protection
- Low resistance
- ESD Circuit
- Pass through
So basically, a lot of safety! The new and improved Omni Board Chip allows you a myriad of functions to customise your experience such as (get ready for a lot of reading!);
|VW – Variable Wattage Mode
5 – 100w range
|VW – H Variable Wattage High
VW – N Variable Wattage Normal
VW – S Variable Wattage Soft.
|CCW – Custom Curve of Wattage Curve||Customise your curve of wattage.|
|SP – Super Player Mode||Allows a broader resistance range from 0.03Ω – 5Ω, which is adaptive to mainstream RDA Tanks.|
|VV – Variable Voltage Mode||Adjust the voltage up and down to match the perfect heat level. Tanks with higher resistance require an increase in voltage and vice versa.|
|CCV – Custom Curve of Voltage Mode||Customise your own curve of voltage – ramp up time and performance.|
|Auto VT – Variable Temperature Mode
Ni – Nickel
Ti – Titanium
SS – Stainless Steel
|When this mode is enabled, the unit can support Nickel 200, Titanium and 316 Stainless Steel Coils. Will intelligently adjust temperature control parameters based on the heating wire’s resistance value. Also allows you to change the start up wattage.|
TCR – Temperature co-efficient of Resistance
|Choose your own manual setting and set the TCR at different values within proper range.|
|BP – Bypass Mode||Direct output voltage is applied in Bypass mode. The higher the battery level the higher the output voltage is. This mode can support a coil whose resistance is within the range of 0.05 – 5.0Ω.|
|Smart On/Off||This is an advanced Variable Wattage Mode – can change intensity according to the coil’s resistance levels within a safe limit in VW – H/N/S Mode.|
|Auto On/Off||Enables easy switching between VW – H, VW – N and VW – N.|
|Default||Reset the unit to default mode.|
|Automatic Atomiser Recognition||To achieve better temperature control effect. The mod will ask if a new atomiser is attached – “OLD LOAD – NEW LOAD +” will appear on your screen. If using a new atomiser/coil press + and the mod will read and set the new resistance. If – is chosen, the mod will read at locked resistance.|
The Cascade Baby Tank comes standard in this Kit with a 5ml Capacity and is a true revolution in the world of vaping. Newly designed Isolation Structure – a unique structure whereas Vaporesso has separated the coil from the juice chamber. This allows consistent and intense flavours with each and every puff. Dry hits are reduced and most importantly coil life is extended. How do this work? The chamber that holds your e liquid is located in the upper portion of the tank. The liquid sits within this chamber and then trickles (or cascades – get it!?) down onto the coil.
Caution: Due to the separation of juice chamber from coil you may not always know how much e liquid is left in the tank, possibly leading to a dry hit. You can easily see how much juice truly sits within the tank by flipping it upside down.
The Filling method for the Cascade Baby Tank has also been redesigned with a safety lock mechanism. Many tanks on the market today are top fill and open by a side swivel system. In some cases, this can lead to leaks when inside a pocket as you accidently swivel. The Cascade Baby Tank requires you to first lift the top cap and then swivel to the side before filling. The top cap will lock back automatically after twisting back. Located at the very top of the tank is the 510 removable Delrin drip tip.
Expect crazy airflow with this unit. Revolutionary triangular air-flow sits at the base of the atomiser. 3 slots that allow air to enter resulting in smoother airflow and denser clouds. Simply spin the ring to further open or close the 3 slots to customise your air flow.
X2 coils come with this unit x1 GT Meshed Coil and x1 GT CCELL 2. One of the included coils is the new ground-breaking GT Mesh coil. GT Mesh Coils heat up more rapidly and evenly compared to other more traditional coils by enlarging the heating area and increasing the contact with cotton. Resulting in great flavour.
|GT Mesh Coil 0.18Ω – Preinstalled||50-85w|
|GT CCELL2 Coil 0.3Ω||35-40w|
Make sure you regularly take your tank apart to inspect for damage to glass, seals etc. As well as regular cleaning of all components (careful with the coils though!).
To use: If using a new coil for the first time be sure to prime it first, this starts the wicking process and helps to prevent dry hits. To prime simply unscrew the drip tip, top cap and glass tube (all in one piece) off the base to expose the enclosed coil. If uninstalled, just screw in the coil of your choice from the kit. Drip a small amount of your e juice onto the exposed cotton. Screw back together and let stand for a few minutes for the cotton to saturate. To fill the tank lift and swivel the top cap. You can now add your e liquid via a dropper into the slot (be careful to not drip any into the centre airflow tube). Swivel back the top cap and allow the unit to sit for a few more minutes. 5 pushes of the power button to turn on (same to turn off). Once turned on you can either manually set your wattage and other settings or simply press + when asked if New Load.
Rotate the adjustable airflow system to your desired setting and then press and hold the power button to start vaping. If nothing happens this may be due to the safety features kicking in. Check that all parts of your tank are screwed together properly (including the coil) and that your wattage is within recommended range.
