The new Innokin Proton vape mod with Scion II tank has just been released. Looking back there have been a number of classic vape mods that have become some of the most popular mods available. The Smok Alien released in mid 2016 and the Innokin Cool Fire 4 70 W Apex kit launched late 2015 are two of the iconic devices and both these devices have become world beaters. It is with hindsight however that we observe just how successful these two vape mods have been.
Looking Forward! Is the Innokin Proton a world-beater?
We have been fortunate enough to receive a full 235 Watt Innokin Proton kit including the Scion 2 tank from Innokin. First impressions are that this device is indeed a mod to be reckoned with. It feels different. With its advanced features, TFT screen and easy navigation via a mini-joystick this is set to become one of those mods we will look back on and say that it is one of the best vape mods of the time.
Proton Scion 2 Tank
At the heart of this beast is the Innokin Scion 2 tank which has already received rave reviews. The innovative Plexus mesh coils are proving to have greater stability with a more constant resistance than earlier coils and give vapour and flavour unrivalled by predecessors. The resistance stability of mesh coils has proven to apply a more even current through the e liquid which Innokin boasts gives far less degradation of the unit. This results in greater longevity and a cleaner longer vape experience. Click the image for larger visual. The mouth piece just fits, the top fill is easier than the older gen Smok Alien, its a simple “push back” which give a lot easier access to the tank for your e liquid. Easy airflow control through 2 breather slots.
Innokin Proton vape review
The Proton kit features a new 235W chipset and a unique joystick navigation controller – this is very intuitive and quickly gives the menu and access to the controls you need to access the mods features.
The kit comes with all the accessories you need to start vaping right out of the box. This includes the Proton itself, the slide top-fill Scion 2 tank, new Plexus mesh coils, 0.15 and 0.36 ohm and a range of spare parts. I would say however it is designed for advanced vapers who really do like their clouds. For your average person trading in cigarettes for vaping there are a lot better, more convenient vape options. I have been using various devices over the years and when I fired this Innokin up and used the 0.36 Ohm coil at 80 watts, just too much nicotine hit for me. (I generally use 0.6 mg nicotine strength and 1.8 mg in my vape pen so quickly had to revert to 0.3 mg’s)
The overall design is very low key visually, not in your face like some! Innokin have kept with the cooler design which like the Coolfire 4 iSub Apex is not flashy but is classic and uniquely functional.
A simple vape
I would point out here that generally speaking, devices like the Proton, Alien and Cool Fire, ie mod devices are aimed at the more avid vaper. My personal aim is to stay off cigarettes and I am not concerned with blowing out huge vapour clouds (which incidentally consumes a lot of e liquid so cost is a factor).
After experimenting with all these mods with dial in user functionality and plumes of vapour, I have come full circle and use my simple Pro 3X vape pen as my regular vape. Using a quality simple device at higher nicotine concentrations will give similar nicotine hits as these big devices and consume significantly less e liquid. Not huge vapour clouds but much more than a normal cigarette. No TFT screens, no navigation, no TC or variable wattage or NI coils here, just my nicotine replacement in a simple cigarette like device to achieve my goal to quit smoking.
