Vaporesso Veco Devil Tank Intro
My first encounter with the Vaporesso Veco line of tanks was to the review of the Vaperesso Veco One Kit, and I came away with a favorable impression.
All of the tanks in the Veco line-up use Vaporesso’s Eco Universal Coil (EUC) system. If you aren’t already familiar with the EUC system, here is a quick overview: the EUC system is a cartridge based approach to replacement coils. Instead of unscrewing a complete coil assembly from the tank, you remove the base of the tank and pull out the EUC, which is essentially the core of the coil assembly. Drop in a new EUC, reassemble the tank, and you’re done.
The new Veco Devil is a much larger tank than the original Veco, and more of a high-performance, sub-ohm tank with the coils rated substantially higher — the 0.15Ω EUC is rated at 80-120 watts and the 0.18Ω EUC at 60-100 watts.
The Devil is available in brushed stainless steel and black finish, with a retail price of $25.90 and $27.90, respectively.

First off, dealing with the EUC is easier and cleaner to use than most other coils and it’s nice that there is less waste in our landfills. However, looking at the size of the EUC, I’m thinking that I could fit about a billion of them in my backyard, in a single layer, so I’m not sure of the true impact on the environment.
The original Veco tank is a smallish 2 mL tank designed to work with low to mid range wattage but, with the new Devil version, Vaporesso has upped their game to compete with the big boys of the sub-ohm tank realm.
The brawny Devil comes in at 26 mm in diameter, with a capacity of 5 mL, and the EUC replacement coils are massive in comparison to the original Veco tank. The 0.15Ω EUC is 12 mm in diameter with a 6 mm inside diameter, to allow room for the clapton coil and better airflow. The four juice holes on the 0.15Ω EUC are an impressive 4.5 mm.
Likewise, the triple top 9 mm x 2 mm airflow slots give the Devil approximately double the airflow of the original. Not coincidentally, the inside diameter of the big-bore drip tip matches the ID of the huge EUC coils at 6 mm, to allow maximum airflow.
Machining of the tank is well done and everything fits that way it should on my stainless steel sample. The threads are precise and the tank comes apart and reassembles easily.
The Devil is in the details, and they all add up to what should be a major boost in performance over the original Veco tank.
As advertised, using the Devil is simple – just remove the top, fill, and vape. I filled the review sample with some vanilla custard with a syringe to verify capacity (5 mL) with no muss or fuss and allowed the coil to saturate for a few minutes.
With my mod set to the lower limit of the 0.15Ω clapton EUC (80 watts) I took my fist vape and was met with a rather impressive cloud of dense vapor. Flavor was on par with the original Veco – very good.
I upped the wattage to 120W in 10-watt increments, stopping for a few hits at each interval, and got the expected increase in warmth and vapor along the way. Flavor remained very good as well, with no dry hits or burning.
To test the Vaporesso claim of a leak-free experience, I left my mod with a full tank of juice on its side overnight and there was no mess the next morning.
- Well made
- Large capacity
- Good airflow
- Dense vapor
- Good flavor for a cloud chucker
- Easy to use
- No leaks
- Comparatively low wattage
- No RBA option
- No drip tip options
It’s devilishly simple and affordable
So, the Devil performed as expected based on my experience with the original Veco tank. It is very easy to set up and use (like most other sub-ohm tanks). Vapor production is very good, and flavor is also on par with the smaller Veco.
The claim that Vaporesso is saving the environment is debatable, but the coils are relatively affordable compared to others, and being a cheap bastard, I’m all in – especially considering that I like the performance of the Devil. If they want to make it even more affordable to use, give us an RBA option.
The big question is whether or not the Devil can dethrone the sub-ohm kings – like the TF series of tanks from SMOK.
Honestly, I can’t answer that as I’m not a big sub-ohm tank user but I can say that the Veco Devil performed as advertised. I am a fan of the performance of Vaporesso’s EUC coils and would recommend any of the Veco series of tanks, including the Devil, to anyone looking for a hassle-free sub-ohm experience that delivers very good flavor and vapor…
…and for 26-28 bucks, you won’t have to sell your soul for this Devil.
