Vaporesso Cascade tank intro
SMOK holds a near-monopoly on powerful sub-ohm tanks. (Brands like Aspire and Uwell trail closely behind). What these tanks have in common is their reliance on a selection of stock coils capable of supporting high wattages, for which SMOK’s coil family is particularly renowned.
Vaporesso is a rookie in this category but made waves with the impressively designed, NRG Tank, released alongside the equally high-powered Revenger Box Mod. The Cascade Tank is Vaporesso’s latest release and it looks capable of giving SMOK’s atomizers a run for their money.

A cascade of clouds…
A clever and creative design, the Cascade is named for its custom-built e-juice reservoir. It provides a “gentle cascade of e-juice” that flows from the main tank to the coil below. Vaporesso has termed this an “innovative isolation structure”, which in practice refers to a separate metal component within the design. This additional part effectively joins the base of the atomizer to the main tank, isolating the coil from the main reservoir. The benefit of this appears to be easier coil replacement, but users may also experience better flavor given its dripping-like setup. How do you think this system will affect flavor and vapor?
E-liquid is channeled down to the installed coils via slits in the base. This component and airflow are controlled from the base of the atomizer for adequate cooling at higher temperatures. Air enters the atomizer via large airflow inlets positioned alongside the installed GTM core, coil head and their triangular placement ensures airflow remains stable and balanced throughout.
The large, 7 mL e-juice reservoir includes a nifty “slide-n-fill” top cap for easy refilling and users can further customize their tank setup with a choice of an optional colored glass tube or stylish resin drip tip, which are sold separately. With a vast range of stock coils available, you can adapt this setup to suit your preferred vaping style in the 25-200 watt output range.
A departure from their standard designs, the Cascade is Vaporesso’s answer to SMOK’s Cloud Beast series. But whether their coil family can consistently meet the needs of advanced vapers, only time will tell. Do you think it will beat the Cloud Beast King?
