The Marvos 60W is the latest AIO by Freemax. They’re best known for making some of the best coils in vaping, mostly with their Fireluke line of sub ohm tanks. They’ve started making vape mods and kits lately, with devices like the Twister and the two Maxus mods—one of which I’ve reviewed in the past.
The Marvos 60W is an AIO system in a small package and is made for low to mid-wattage DL vaping. It is IP67 rated, houses a 2000 mAh internal battery, and has a screen and adjustable watts. It comes with a proprietary tank that has a 4.5 mL capacity. In this review, I’ll be testing its performance and durability to find out if the device lives up to the reputation of Freemax’s awesome coils.
Price: $49.99 (at Element Vape)
Colors: Black, blue, gunmetal, red.
The Marvos 60W is a very small and pocketable AIO system. It’s similar to many we’ve seen of this style like the VAPORESSO LUXE 80 kit, but the design is more of a mix of that and a rectangular pen style kit. It’s also IP67-rated for dust, shock, and water resistance. Rugged mods are always a bonus in my opinion, especially when they look as good as this one. It’s surprisingly a lot lighter than it looks, at only 129 grams. It stands at 123.6 mm x 32.6 mm x 30.6 mm, essentially the same size as the LUXE 80 and not much bigger than an advanced pod device.
I received the black color option. The other three available colors are red, blue, and gunmetal. They all have the same black liquid silicone rubber exterior with the only main differences being the zinc alloy top part of the device. I’ve experienced no paint chipping or issues with it at all. There are three buttons at the front—fire, up, and down. On the front of the device, you have the 0.96-inch color TFT rectangular screen which is nice, bright, and easy to see. The screen is excellent on this device. On the two sides you have your protective covering. Branding is very simple with a small “Freemax” at the front above the fire button and a “Marvos” on the back.
All in all, it’s really a good tactical looking AIO system with plenty of color options and nice features to it.
The Marvos 60W is a pretty typical AIO system to use. There is a fire button, an up button, and a down button. Basic operations are as follows:
The screen displays the wattage, puff counter, battery meter, resistance, and a lock symbol to let you know if the adjustment buttons are locked. Power is your typical wattage mode, while smart is wattage mode as well, but it’ll automatically set the starting wattage based on the coil resistance. Either mode is fine to use, and smart can be used by people who aren’t sure where to start their wattage. As far as bypass goes, I’m not a fan and not sure why mods bother to include it these days.
The kit comes with a proprietary tank called the Marvos DTL pod. It’s held in place by magnets and pops in and out. To adjust the airflow, there is a small lever on the back that you can slide left and right. The included tank is a tinted PCTG pod (aka fancy plastic) but it’s not too dark and it’s fully exposed. They do also offer a separate clear glass version of it, which is a nice idea—I would have preferred the clear glass to be included in the package and the PCTG to be sold separately, but that’s just personal preference.
Coil replacement is very easy. It uses the same plug-n-play coil design that we’ve seen on many of these devices. Just pull the coil out from the bottom and pop in a new one. Then put it back in and refill the pod. You need to pretty much empty the pod before replacing the coil, but if you do it sideways a little juice can stay in there as well. One thing I really like is that the coil actually protrudes out a lot so is easy to grab and pull. Excellent job there for sure—maybe they’ve seen a few of my past reviews requesting that of other devices. This makes it a very easy to use beginner AIO system, as it should be.
Refilling the Marvos pod tank is easy. Just remove the pod and there is a standard rubber plug at the bottom. Unplug it and fill through the fill hole. Nothing groundbreaking, but it’s a proven great method for refilling these tanks. Overall, it’s a pretty easy to use AIO pod system as it should be. It’s similar to a lot of others, but with the added bonus of coils being very easy to replace by hand.
The most important part of any pod device is going to be the coils. Lots of nice systems have been ruined by poor coils, but Freemax makes some of the best coils in the market -if not the best- so we’ll see if they can keep that going.
The Marvos pod tank uses the MS mesh coil line. It comes with two coil options. A 0.25-ohm mesh coil rated for 40-60 watts, and a 0.35-ohm mesh coil rated for 30-40 watts. You can also buy separately the other options which are a 0.5-ohm mesh coil rated for 20-30 watts, and a 0.15-ohm mesh coil rated for 60-80 watts. So, you’re basically covered from 20-60 watts, since 60 is the max wattage of the mod itself.
For coil performance, I tested both coils with 70/30 3 mg juice. I started with the 0.35-ohm coil and found it best to be around 35 watts. The flavor was excellent and with a coil at this watt range I expect about 40 mL of juice before it dies. For this, however, I ran 60 mL and it was still good. Really good flavor and coil life.
Then I tested the 0.25-ohm coil and found it best around 50 watts. Flavor was again excellent and while I would expect around 60 mL from it, I ran 80 mL without issues, and it still was good. Overall, just excellent performance from both coils. I always have high expectations of Freemax coils, and these didn’t fall short or disappoint in any way. Can’t go wrong with either one.
Freemax list the device at 2A charging with an internal battery rated for 2000 mAh. The max charge rate I got during my testing was 1.87A which is more than good enough to earn a 2A rating as most will round up. Anything higher than 1.8A is suitable to be rated at 2A so no complaints there. It does allow for passthrough vaping as well so you can vape while it charges.
I timed a full charge at 67 mins which is good. For battery size, I got a usable 1857 mAh. It’s not uncommon for companies to overrate battery sizes, to the point where I expect them to be overstated by 20% every time. This one is only 7%, so that’s a very good rating. It’s actually pretty much the same size as the battery of the LUXE 80 which was rated at 2500 mAh, which goes to show how good the rating is here. That’s one of the reasons reviews are valuable; if you were going to pick the LUXE 80 over this for the extra battery life, you’d be wrong as the battery life is the same. The LUXE is just rated much higher than it should have been, while the Marvos’ rating is almost spot on.
For the IP67 rating, I started by submerging the device in water for 30 minutes (no pod tank attached) while powered on. After I took it out of the water and wiped it down, I popped the tank back on and it worked perfectly with no issues. No water behind the screen or anything of the like. Did a really great job with that.
For shock resistance testing, I threw it up in the air several times as well and spun it so it would land randomly. The device suffered no noticeable physical damage and continued to work with no issues. So, it gets another pass. Freemax did a really good job making the device rugged.
Overall, Freemax did an excellent job with this kit. I’ve used and reviewed quite a few similar kits, and this one stands out from the pack for sure. Mostly because the coils are so great, but also because of the accurate ratings where you get what you are promised, the IP67 ruggedness, and the ease to swap coils. I really couldn’t find any real issues with this device—as you can see from the fact that there’s only one (subjective) con in the list above. If you are looking for a DL AIO kit, this is the one to get right now.
