Ever since the release of pod mods into the vaping market, the whole idea of vaping got even better since vapers can now enjoy a mix of simplicity and performance without having to sacrifice on power. Over the years, there have been devices like the JUUL, Caliburn, and many others that took the vape market by a storm. Today, it is the XROS Pod Mod by Vaporesso that takes the stage.

Design and Build Quality
When placed side by side other pod devices like the Caliburn or JUUL, it is easy to note that the XROS is slightly taller and chunkier, measuring 112mm x 12mm x 23mm and weighing in at 54 grams. Nonetheless, it is still a perfectly compact device, something that you should be able to easily slip into any small pocket.
The XROS features a stainless steel chassis with curved edges that make it feel comfortable to hold. The bottom edges are a little sharp, but that gives the XROS a robust flat surface to stand upright on. The finish is durable and corrosion-resistant.
You get to choose either draw activation or push-button activation thanks to the round fire button located on the front face of the device. The button protrudes ever so slightly so it is easily clickable, and at the same time, it will not accidentally fire when the device is in your pocket.
On the opposite side of the fire button is the main feature of the XROS, a fully adjustable airflow that allows you to go from a tight MTL to an airy DTL draw. It is in the shape of a sliding toggle with a small protruding knob. The airflow control is intuitively positioned a few millimetres above the fire button so you do not accidentally cover it with your index finger when manually firing the device.
The refillable pod slots into the top of the XROS battery and are held in place by a pair of strong magnets. The pods make a satisfying snap once they are connected, and they do not come off easily so they will not accidentally come off while you vape.
The XROS features an 800mAh battery that is powered by Vaporesso’s AXON chip. Thanks to the chip, the device offers a power range of 11 to 16 watts however, this is automatically determined by the resistance of the pod that you connect.
The device also comes with all the safety protections that you should expect from a modern pod vape. The USB-C charging maxes out at 1A and can power up the batteries in 60 minutes. It also supports pass-through charging allowing you to vape while you charge.
XROS Ejuice Pods
Vaporesso went with clear plastic for the material of the pods so you can easily see your ejuice level from the top of the XROS without having to remove the pod from the battery. The mouthpiece of the pod is slightly narrowed at the tip so it feels comfortable in your mouth when you vape. The pods feature four layers of silicone on the bottom that help to prevent leaking.
Filling the pod is pretty easy. The mouthpiece acts as a cap, once you open it, it reveals a fill port that is protected by a rubber valve to prevent ejuice from flowing back up.
There are two pods available in the XROS kit:
- 0.8-ohm Mesh Coil
- 1.2-ohm Mesh Coil
Both pods deliver good flavor and vapor, and thanks to the adjustable airflow, your vaping can be far more versatile.
