Today we are going to have a look at the Nebula, one of Vaporesso’s latest single battery mods. Let’s take a moment to appreciate how appropriate and clever the name of this device is...

Vaporesso Nebula Intro

The word “nebula” is not only Latin for cloud, but refers to an interstellar cloud of dust and/or gases.

Nebula also reminds me of the word nebulizer, which is something you inhale from. It makes a lot more sense than let’s say “Tarot”.

The Vaporesso Nebula takes a single 26650 battery but also comes with an “adapting device” aka a rubber tube that goes around your 18650. The mod is Star Trek-esque not only in design but also in the sense that this is the next generation of Vaporesso mods. Time to find out why….

Notable Remarks

Thoughts

Vaporesso has never been one to conform to the typical notion of a box mod, as we have seen with the Target series. The Nebula is essentially the next generation of the Target with an updated look and name. I am looking forward to seeing what they have improved on this one.

The Nebula utilizes their latest chipset, the OMNI board, which gives you temperature control for Ni, SS and Ti, two custom TCR modes, wattage mode, bypass mode. We will take a closer look at the OMNI board and its features. I’m super excited to nerd out with these heating curves.

There is just something about this mod that just looks so unique, sturdy and futuristic all at the same time. It feels great in my hand, and I love the texture they put on the battery door. One of my favorite parts is how the door clicks into place. It reminds me of the sound of cocking a gun.

Performance

I really enjoy the performance I get off the OMNI board with the Nebula. The temperature control mode is getting along nicely with my stainless steel builds and the ohm reader appears to be extremely precise, which is essential for proper temperature control functionality.

Switching between modes is a little bit annoying, since you have to hold the button for three seconds each time you want to enter the next mode. On the other hand, it was actually real easy for me to create the perfect heating curve to power up my big clapton coils real fast.

Using the CCW and CCT modes was actually a lot of fun once I got the hang of it. With a .3 ohm dual clapton build, I was able to set the Nebula to fire at 80W for the first three seconds and then gradually drop down to 50W to conserve power, once my coils were nice and warm.

The battery life I got out of the Nebula was pretty decent for one battery, especially with a 26650. By using temp mode and CCW mode, I was able to squeeze the most life out of one cell.

As an avid user of mech mods, I can say that in bypass mode, it comes very close to simulating the experience you would get on a mech. The switch is not mechanical per se but with virtually no latency or delay, it feels very convincing. The Nebula really gives you the best of both worlds.

Custom heating curves
Ergonomic design
Sturdy
Battery door clicks into place
Takes both 26650 and 18650 batteries
Bypass mode (rejoyce, mechlyfers)

Dislikes

Battery sits tight
Switching modes is annoying
510 threading is short

Verdict

Instead of blindly following the trends and making another two, three or even four-battery mod, Vaporesso did something interesting. They decided to take a step back and perfect the single battery mod first. This is easily one of my favorite single battery mods that I have ever vaped on.

What more can you ask for? It looks awesome, feels great in the hand and is well-constructed. With a freshly charged 26650, you can get close to a day of vaping on this thing, especially if you take advantage of its CCW and CCT modes. The Nebula is surely a mod worth looking into.

    Do you think the OMNI board installed in the Nebula is a bit underrated? I think the CCT and CCW can be excellent options, assuming they are accurate. How does it compare with other devices that offer TC mode in terms of performance and accuracy?

    • Dave @ Vaping 360

      Yes, I agree. Eventually people are going to find out how great the OMNI chip works. Put it this way, I have vaped on DNA devices before and it’s impressive how close this one gets.

      • Mario

        Thank you for the reply. I am now a bit more convinced to get one, and probably will get one.

    Close to a day of vaping on this…? I’m going on my 3rd day now using an eFest 4200mAh 50A battery, with moderate vaping. This is the nicest mod I’ve bought in years….literally. The grip is superb either angle/way, huge button, batt easy to install w/o damage, hit’s quick/hard! The silver/black Nebula looks great with my orange/black baby Beast atty. Will surely buy another (absolute no-brainer!)
