Innokin Disrupter Intro
Today we take a look at the Innokin Disrupter 50W box mod. The Disrupter features Innokin’s innovative new removable Innocell Lipo battery technology. Innokin have been working to create a superior Lipo battery that works better than an 18650 battery and can also be removed from the box mod itself. The idea is to have several Innocell batteries that use a slide and click system and can be replaced easily when you run out of battery.

- 1 x 2000mAh Innocell Battery
- 1 x USB Charger
What is this Innocell battery technology and how does it work?
The Innocell batteries according to Innokin have been engineered purely with vaping in mind. They are meant to be superior to standard 18650 batteries (30% more charge and discharge than an 18650).
The new Innocell batteries will have a 300 charge cycle lifetime and have a continuous 20A output. The output uses a VRMS DC and PWN current, which apparently leads to a more precise and stable power output even at 50W with a max deviation of 0.5W. The full 50Ws will be maintained precisely between 0.2 and 3.1ohms. This then means that you can be sure when firing at any wattage, that you will be getting that correct wattage within 0.5W.
We haven’t measured the above ourselves, so it is hard to say if this works or not. It will be interesting to see Pbusardo or someone measuring the exact output over different wattages to really see how good these new Innocell batteries are. We vaped them and they worked very well for us and I like the slide and click technology, whereby you can replace the LiPo batteries like you would an 18650!
Overall we really like that Innokin are innovating here. Being able to remove the LiPo batteries, fixes the main issue I have with LiPos, in that once they are empty you need to recharge them without being able to remove the battery and replace it with a spare. Now having 2-3 batteries means you can quickly switch over, once one is done and have the others charging in the background!
The Innocell batteries will be costing below $20 per piece, which isn’t bad. I hope they will be more around the $15, as I think that would provide me with more of an incentive to buy 2-3 batteries to have them lying around in case I run out of battery.
As our Disrupter is a sample I do not yet know how much the actual disrupter mod + one Innocell will cost.
Using the Innokin Disrupter mod
The screen on the Disrupter works great just like any Innokin screen and scrolling up and down between wattages is easy. You can flip the screen by holding down the + and – buttons. Hitting the + and – together briefly will show the puff counter. As usual, the screen is 3 clicks to turn on and off.
To attach the Innocell LiPo battery you need to slide and click the battery onto the Disrupter vape mod part of the device. Once in place it is held into place by a magnet and is fairly solid and won’t fall out by mistake.
The Innocell battery concept is really innovative. As said above it solves the issue you have with LiPos being non removable and thus once dead you have to charge your device again before being able to vape it again. You can of course use pass through charging, but I don’t ever really use that myself.
Being able to quickly swap a new Innocell battery in, makes the batteries much more like 18650s, whereby you can have several to swap in and out of the device when needed. According to Innokin their Innocell batteries are also superior to 18650s and provide a more continuous and stable output even at higher wattages.
Spring Loaded 510 Pin
The Innokin Disrupter comes with a spring loaded 510 pin. We had no issues with any of our tanks sitting flush on the top of the mod. 22mm tanks will sit flush with no overlaps, but anything bigger might overlap over the side of the mod.
The Innokin Disrupter comes packed with safety features, as we have come to expect from a regulated box mod. Below are some of the safety features:
- 15 second cut-off
- Low voltage warning
- Short circuit protection
- Over discharge protection
As always with the Innokin box mods, the screen is a good size and easy to read. It displays the standard stats and can be flipped as well by holding the + and – buttons. The wattages can be changed in 0.5W increments and the screen will round robin once it reaches 50W back down to 6W.
Solid Build Quality
We have become used to Innokin making some very well crafted devices that are very solid. The Disrupter is no different and feels very sturdy and solid in your hand, much like the MVP 3 Pro.
The Innokin Disrupter is slightly smaller than the MVP 3 Pro in terms of height. It therefore lacks the additional charging capability the MVP 3 pro has. Apart from that, the Disrupter feels just as solid and sits well in your hand. The removable LiPo battery gives it the edge in my opinion over the MVP 3 Pro, if you don’t mind losing the on-board charger on the MVP.
The minimum 0.2ohm resistance is a decent minimum to have, especially given all the new sub ohm tanks with low resistance coils.
Different Color Batteries
The Innocell batteries come in a variety of different colors, so you can mix match your set-up and configure however you like!
Pass Through Charging
I don’t really like using pass through charging, but the Disrupter can be charged whilst vaping. I would make sure to read the manual about making sure you use the correct charging cables and devices etc.
Please do have a read through the manual before vaping this device and before charging it etc. It is a very comprehensive manual, which is good. Make sure to do your homework, as this is a new type of box mod and LiPos should always be handled with care especially when charging them.
The 2000mAh battery isn’t bad at all and will last you around a day of vaping on a 0.2ohm coil. I would however haveliked a 2500-3000mAh battery, but perhaps I am being greedy! I guess by being able to swap out batteries the size of the battery capacity isn’t as important.
Innokin have done a great job of integrating the Innocell battery into the mod with the click and slide system. However, the one area that is slightly ugly, is the top of the Innocell battery that lies next to the 510 pin at the top of the mod. It has 4 screws and a rather ugly looking plate. That is just my opinion though and isn’t a big deal really at all. Apart from that there really isn’t anything to fault about this box mod and it is a very innovative piece of engineering by Innokin!
I think the Innokin Disrupter box mod alongside the new Innocell LiPo battery technology is a really innovative creation. The slide and click Innocell batteries work great and last surprisingly long for only being 2000mAh batteries. You can mix and match colors and I would recommend getting an extra Innocell battery or two depending on what their final prices are.
I think Innokin are really onto something with this technology and if they can implement this into their temp control box mod going forward (which I think they are), they could be onto something special. Time will tell how long these Innocell Lipo batteries actually last and if they really perform well up until 300 charge cycles.
The Innokin Disrupter box mod and Innocell battery technology gets a big thumbs up and I am sure we will see a lot more of this type of technology being used going forward!
