This year vapers have seen a huge uptick in kits containing a miniature mod and a subohm tank. Especially from Chinese companies, it seems like this year there have been too many kits to count. Today I will be taking a look at another new kit, this time from Vaporesso called the Tarot Nano Kit.
But before I get into the review, I have to say that I hope Vaporesso made enough of these things because this Kit is awesome. From the jam-packed features of the mini Tarot Nano 80W/TC to their new and flavorful Veco tank with ceramic-less coils, Vaporesso is ending the year out with a bang!
Let’s get to it.
The Tarot Nano 80W/TC is the shrunken version of the uniquely shaped Tarot Pro 160W/TC, but with a new center-mounted 510 connection. It retains the same Omni Board (a Vaporesso-made chipset), just with half the power and slightly higher resistance load. There is upgradable firmware via the side USB port with an internal battery of 2600 mAh, a max wattage of 80 watts with a minimum resistance load of 0.15-ohms.
The Tarot Nano supports TC with a temp range from of 280F-600F (100C-315C) via pre-settings for SS, Ni, or Ti, and there is also TCR with two programmable memory settings. If that wasn’t enough, the Omni Board in this mod includes four other easy-to-access modes. The other modes are: Smart VW mode (new atomizer recognition with auto-set power in a safe range), CCW (custom curve wattage), and CCT (custom curve temperature), and bypass (which allows you to just dump battery power to you atomizer like a mechanical mod).
Smart VW mode allows any kanthal-coiled atty to be detected with an automatic safe power level set. Overriding this feature is as simple as adjusting the +/- toward the power you wish. Or, you can leave it as is. This feature is great for the new vaper that may not know exactly where to set the power.
CCW and CCT modes are both the same thing, but one is for TC and the other for VW. Such a fun feature! This mode allows you to customize the way your atomizer performs within a 5-second time frame based on the wattage you set per .5-seconds. Essentially what that means is you can design the “curve” of heat you experience. The self-adjusted curve is displayed in a bar graph where each bar has its own wattage setting. Each bar represents .5 seconds. You can set it to peak in the middle, the end or the beginning, or any kind combination of peaks, valleys or plateaus. It’s up to you! This feature really does change the way you experience the vape, and it’s easy to accomplish and fun to experience.
The Vecco is a top-fill 22 mm subohm tank with a 2 mL juice capacity. This tank does not come with ceramic coils! The Veco Tank comes traditional cotton coils for those people (such as myself) that don’t want to use ceramic-based coils. I am thoroughly enjoying the tank, so I definitely appreciate Vaporesso not being dead set on only ceramic coils. It’s got really good flavor with a semi-restricted airflow (maybe MTL is possible?) and the airflow being at the top ensures that you won’t getting any leaking. That is a great thing!
The tank itself is flavorful and it does not guzzle juice and has an easy coil swap system. Just turn the tank upside down, unscrew the base and drop in a new coil. These coils are supposed to be “ECO friendly” by having less material to throw away (there’s not a lot to the head). I guess. I don’t knock the goal, I just think this here is marketing and not much else. Maybe cut back on all the cardboard and plastic in packaging. But I digress.
Cool-looking design for the Tarot Nano
Center-mounted 510 gives the mod a unique look and amazing balance
Very useful features
Custom curves for wattage or temperature
Flavorful tank that does not leak
Easy to swap out coils
No Smart Mode for TC
The buttons could be raised a bit for a more tactile feel
Fire button could be bigger
Switching between various wire settings is easy, but it isn’t as quick as I would like
What a fun kit. I don’t know if others will like it as much as I do, but I think it’s pretty great!
Looking at my notes for this review, I struggled to come up with many cons. The cons that I do have with the device are offset by the many positive qualities the Tarot Nano has. I knew the mod was going to be sweet, but I never imagined I would like the tank too. A lot of times the tanks in kits are just meh to me, but I really enjoy this one.
I got to give Vaporesso props for this kit. The features and performance of this are at a high level, and it just so happens to look pretty damn cool, too!
