Design

The XROS is slightly taller and chunkier than most pod vapes in the market. It measures 112mm x 12mm x 23mm and weighs in at 54grams so it is still compact enough to slip into your pocket. The chassis is made of stainless steel that is wear-resistant so you would not have any issues when you place the device in your pocket together with your keys. The design itself is rather simple however, you get a variant of color options to chose from.

With the XROS, you get to choose either draw activation or manual activation. On the front face, there is a round metallic fire button that sits almost flush with the chassis. A single press of the fire button activated the battery. Below the fire button is an LED that serves as the battery level indicator. 

Behind the fire button is the airflow control system, something you do not see every day on a pod vape. There is an airflow control slider that allows you to customize the airflow. When it is wide open, there are three sir intake slots. You can decide to close off all three, just one, or have it somewhere in between.

The ejuice pods are securely attached to the top of the XROS battery via a pair of strong magnets. The pods make a satisfying click when they are held in place, and they do not shake or come off while you vape or while they are in your pocket. 

Battery Capacity

It is not every day that you see a pod device with 800mAh inbuilt battery. That’s Vaporesso’s way of making a statement. Depending on how frequent you vape, the XROS battery should last you for over a day before you need to recharge. Thanks to the USB-C charging port below the device, you can power the device in about 60 minutes. It also supports passthrough charging so you can vape while you charge. 

The LED lights up when you take a draw and also while charging. 

  • Green: When the battery is above 70%
  • Blue: When the battery is between 70% and 30%
  • Red: When the battery is below 30%

Ejuice Pods

The XROS pod kit comes with two pods, a 1.2ohm Mesh pod, and a 0.8ohm Mesh pod. Each pod can hold 2ml of ejuice. The pods are pretty standard, sharp and boxy. They are clear so you can easily monitor your ejuice level. The mouthpiece of the pod is slightly narrowed down at the tip so it feels comfortable when you are vaping.

The mouthpiece also serves as the cap that covers the filling mechanism. You simply pull off the mouthpiece to reveal a fill port with a black membrane covering it to help keep the ejuice in. Once you are done, you can simply snap the mouthpiece back on.
