It's What's Inside That Counts
The Vaporesso Tarot Pro Mod is an update to the original Tarot, which was released earlier in 2016. While many vapers were drawn to the box mod’s good looks, some were disappointed by its performance. The Tarot Pro Mod addresses the shortcomings of its forerunner with the brand new OMNI chip. In theory, it should deliver on the promise of the original model by offering great looks and great performance. Here’s a closer look.

The OMNI Chip and You
The Vaporesso Tarot Pro Mod is a 160-watt box-mod with all of the features you’d expect from a 2016 vaping device. It has variable wattage, temperature control, and bypass modes, as well as a few interesting customizable modes. The new additions are Customized Curvature of Temperature (CCT) and Customized Curvature of Wattage (CCW). These two modes allow vapers to program the ramp patterns of temperature and wattage, respectively. Rounding things out is a Smart VW mod, which suggests an ideal wattage based on the resistance of the atomizer. This is a particularly nice feature for vapers that are new to variable wattage or are unsure what wattage works best for a particular coil type/resistance.
At the heart of the Tarot Pro is the OMNI chipset. It’s responsible for all the new features mentioned above, as well as a whole new level of performance. As I mentioned earlier, some vapers were underwhelmed by the accuracy and performance of the original Tarot. The OMNI chip should address those problems, while introducing several interesting new features.
Aesthetically, the Tarot Pro uses similar design language as its predecessor. Some minor flourishes have been added, but it’s mostly the same bold and attractive design. A bunch of new finishes have been added and I really hope they make it to the final run. I’m a huge fan of the black model that features wood grain; it’s all about that ’70s station wagon look. The yellow model is the most interesting, with a yellow border and panels that look like an abstract triangle painting.
On paper, Vaporesso appears to have addressed the shortcomings of the original Tarot and introduce several new features with the Tarot Pro Mod. I’ve always been a fan of the design. Hopefully the new OMNI chip introduces performance that complements the sleek looks. What do you ladies and gentlemen think of the Tarot Pro Mod? Are you interested in any of the new modes?
