Innokin Coolfire IV Plus Review

Innokin Coolfire IV Plus Intro

We take a look at the brand new Innokin Coolfire IV box mod. The Coolfire IV Plus is an upgraded version of the popular Innokin Coolfire IV mod. The new Coolfire IV Plus is marginally thicker and heavier than the original, but therefore boasts a larger battery capacity, higher max wattage and can fire down to a lower resistance. The Coolfire IV Plus has a nice 3300mAh battery vs the 2000mAh on the original. The Plus now has a max wattage of 70W, up from 40W on the original. Lastly you can now fire down to 0.1ohm on the Plus, whereas the original could only go down to 0.3ohm. In a market where higher power and lower resistances has become quite mainstream, the Coolfire IV Plus boasts some much needed improvements. The Coolfire IV Plus does not have temperature control, so if you are looking for that, you will need to look at Innokin’s new Cortex mod instead.

At the time of writing the Coolfire IV Plus only comes as part of a kit, either with the Innokin Apex or the iSub G sub ohm tank.

Thanks to George over at Innokin for sending over the device to review.

Upgrades on the Original

I mentioned above in the intro that the Plus comes with several improvements over the original. The Plus boasts a higher max wattage, lower minimum resistance and a better battery life. The Plus also comes with a much larger, clearer OLED screen. The small screen was one our our few complaints on the original Coolfire IV and it is good to see Innokin have improved it alongside upgrading a host of other features.

Style Factor

The original Coolfire IV was a pretty sleek looking device. Whilst the new Coolfire Plus is slightly chubbier than the original, Innokin have managed to somehow make it look even sleeker. The one we have in Black, looks really nice and it sits really nicely in the hand whilst vaping.

Build Quality

The brushed Aluminium finish on the Coolfire IV Plus feels really solid. The whole mod is made very well and it feels like a top quality device, as we have come to expect from Innokin. The buttons are much improved on the plus as the ones on the original felt somewhat plasticky. This is no longer the case and there is no button rattling either. The threading on the 510 connection is made very well and you can feel that the threads are really solid. The 510 connection also comes with a nice spring loaded pin.

No Fuss Easy to Use 70W Mod

The Coolfire IV Plus does not feature temperature control, but I can still see it appealing to a lot of vapers who are looking for a mod in this wattage range. It is a great looking and well built box mod and I can see it being very popular with beginner to intermediate type vapers.

Dislikes

I can’t really find anything to dislike about this mod. It is a bit pricier compared with competing mods in the same category, like the Eleaf iStick 60W and Joyetech Evic VTC Mini. However, the Innokin devices have always been associated with quality and that certainly comes across with this device. I’d be happy to pay that bit more knowing I am getting a quality device that will last a long time.

Personally I prefer a removable 18650 battery in my mod, so I can switch batteries when one is drained. That would be the one improvement I would want on this mod for my personal taste. However, I know a lot of vapers who don’t want to worry about switching batteries and the Coolfire IV Plus does have passthrough charging.

Verdict

The Coolfire IV Plus is a fantastic 70W no thrills box mod. It looks fantastic, is built well, has a good battery life, is very ergonomic and does what it is meant to – vape. For those looking for a well made box mod in this wattage range and who are not fussed about temperature control, then the Coolfire IV Plus is a fantastic option. If you want something similar with temp control, then wait for the Innokin Cortex or take a look at the Evic VTC Mini or iStick 60W.

I’d recommend the Innokin Coolfire IV to those looking for their first box mod who don’t want to worry about batteries and temperature control, or those just looking for a reliable, sleek 70W box mod with a solid battery life.

Hi Alex, just bought my first vaping machine. Cool fire 4 plus. I’m looking for a bit of advice if ok? The instructions are pretty thin for a newbie. Could you tell me what the voltage/wattage settings actually do. Without wanting to sound like a pete beglar (dumbass) I have tried adjusting both in various directions using tabacco flavoured fluid which is rank by the way :-). Smoked for 20 years but every time I take a puff its like taking that first puff of a fag. Cheers in advance.

Oh and if this is your first time vaping you will cough for a while, maybe a week. Then you will be fine. I quit smoking 2 years ago. Picked up an Ego and never looked back. LOL!

What percentage of nicotine are you using? Also what tank? If you are using a sub ohm tank then nothing more than 6% nic should be used. I only use 3%. Wattage depends on your coil….most of them show on the coil the recommended range. You choose whats best for you in that range. I don’t mess with the voltage, it changes with the watts. I have an Aspire Triton with a .5 coil. I use a Cool Fire 4 (ordered the plus today) and I vape at 30 watts. Hope that helps:)

Even with the new 2 ohm coils and Apex at 12-15 w on my Cool fire iv plus i’v dropped from 18mg to 6mg compared to my previous iclear 30s and still get the same hit, This thing’s Awesome 🙂

Hi Shannon. Thanks for that. The tank is an i sub apex tank with a .5 coil. Just noticed on the coil it says 20-35 watt. I’m using 10mg nicotine. The voltage range is 2 – 7.5v currently set at 3v. Thanks 🙂

Hey Karl, sorry for the late reply. Thanks @Shannon for the reply! Great mod you have there! Like Shannon already wrote, try using a lower nicotine ratio in your e-liquid. 10mg is quite a lot for such a low ohm/high airflow coil. Due to the large airflow and wire/cotton contact area of the coil a lot more juice evaporates, thus creating more vapor. Due to the high amount of vapor being inhaled a higher nicotine ratio can cause you to cough. Like Shannon I tend to use 0.3% or 0.6%mg nic in my juices. May I also ask what PG/VG… Read more »

Hey Alex. Many thanks for that. That’s fixed it. Got the thicker juice with 0.6mg. Works a treat now. Doesn’t feel like I’m inhaling cigars. Cheers

Can you use ni200 coils with the cf4+, I know cf4+ doesn’t have temp, but it does fire down to 0.1 which is what ni200 coils can fire at???

I am not sure if you are able to use Ni200 on the cf4+. You can fire down to 0.1ohm, but I am pretty sure that is just with kanthal.

To fully utilize the 70W of this mod, I just bout the storm addition which comes with the isub g, but that tank only goes up to 35W, do you have a tank you would recommend?
