The Attitude Kit
The Attitude Kit is the latest mod/tank combo from Vaporesso. It features the 80W/TC Attitude mod with their new Estoc Tank. Just taking a quick glance at the basic features, it would appear not much different to The Tarot Nano (80W/TC) kit besides the form factor. They do share a lot, even similar price tags (both priced around the $60 mark). But for better and for worse, this kit is not the same as the Tarot Nano Kit.
Let’s get to it and see what’s up with the Attitude.

The 80W/TC Attitude is a sleek-looking mod with a lot of features. Powered by a single 18650, the Attitude can handle resistance loads down to 0.05 with temp presets are for SS, Ti and Ni. The updatable board also has TCR capabilities which means you can dial in the correct temperature coefficient for any temp sensing coil. The temperature range is 200F-600F.
The Attitude comes equipped with the easy-to-use Omni Board. This board has six modes, including CCT and CCW (customized temperature curve and customized curve wattage). There are two memory settings for your own TCR values and accessing all the various modes is easy (even for me, and I shy away from “advanced” features). There really isn’t even a menu to get lost in; each setting is accessed by clicking and holding the button.
When I first saw the Attitude mod, I thought it looked good. The chrome wave-like atomizer platform allows the tank (or any atty) to sit couched in the connection in a striking way. This uses a somewhat similar approach as the Eleaf Pico (re: Fluid Momentum mods) where the 510 connection sits lower than the battery. That gives the atomizer/mod a shorter profile while not sacrificing power. Here it’s just done in a more embellished way.
The majority of the mod is made of Zinc Alloy. That is fine sometimes, but here I think the zinc alloy takes away from the sturdiness of the mod. Compared to something like the Vaporesso Tarot Nano, this mod feels flimsy. This is only made worse by the magnetic battery door.
Although the magnets themselves are relatively strong, there is too much horizontal and vertical play with the door. Sometimes when I pick up the mod, I feel and hear a click-clack, clack… click. This drives bonkers like a shirt with a scratchy tag on my neck!
The battery door can be fiddly with removing and putting it on. You have to hold right it above the center line and pull straight back or the top of the door will be stuck under the dip in atomizer platform. Then, putting it back on, you have to insert it bottom first or the top of the battery door will get lodged on under the platform up top.
The Estoc Tank
The Estoc Tank is like the sibling to the Vaporesso Veco. They both take Ccell coils or Eco Universal Coils, and they’re both 2 mL (TPD?) capacity tanks. The chimney and external feed ports are smaller in the Veco, but the Veco has more free-flowing bottom-fed air compared to the restrictive top-air of the Veco.
This tank performs more like the average — but good — subohm tank. There has been no spitting, leaking or any other kind of hiccup like with any number of similar tanks. No fails (with the tank).
It’s been more about the coil’s performance. Most of my EUC coils have been good for flavor and vapor, but one was a dud. That is not the fault of the tank. And anyway, from what I’ve seen, these coils are going to be cheap. Let’s hope “cheap” will only refer to the price. But, if you do like Vaporesso Ccell coils, you can always rock those too.
Easy to access modes
Affordable price ($60-ish) for advanced features and a decent tank
Flavorful tank with typical vapor
Loose tolerances on battery door
Thin zinc alloy feels flimsy
Logo is a bit to prominent on battery door
+/- buttons are a bit too flush with surface of the mod
After my excitement for the Tarot Nano Kit, I was eager to try the Attitude kit. Although the Attitude does handle lower loads, as well as give the user freedom of battery choices, I still recommend anyone in the market for an 80W/TC kit to look into the Tarot Nano. This mod performs well too; I just think the build quality is lacking. In general, I am not a fan of the Attitude.
