Innokin is back in the limelight, making a diminutive sub ohm kit that perfectly fits the palm of your hand – introducing the iTaste Kroma. Check out if this is a perfect match for your vaping needs. (Head on to www.nzecigstore.co.nz.)
The Kroma mod comes with a natural fit 2-ml slipstream tank. It has a screw-on tank adapter that can accommodate any 510 tank or RBA of up to 24 mm. The 510 “inset” is created to work with the SlipStream tank that is included in the kit. However, you are still free to choose what tank you want to use. The 510 atomizer adapter will allow you to offset the inset and install any 510 atomizer you want. Just make sure it is compatible with the Kroma. It has a top-fill design and a child lock feature. It also comes with a dual adjustable airflow ring that can be found at the top part of the tank.
The mod comes with a built-in Aethon chipset. A brief trivia to tell: Aethon in Greek mythology was the name of the eagle that would torture Promethus every day by eating his kidney alive out of his body. Although Innokin did not really explain the history behind, but just like its namesake, the Aethon chipset is relatively fast, accurate and reliable.
The Aethon chipset allows you to switch between Voltage Wattage and Temperature Control modes using the common coil metal types. It also supports 2-amp fast charging. Want to know how fast that is? After draining Kroma’s internal 2,000 mAh battery, I charged it via the micro-USB charger to the PC, and voila, after just 90 minutes, my mod was back to its full battery life again.
The chipset has a precise temperature control feature which commits to no dry hits. It has a very quick fire time of 0.2 seconds. The Aethon also sees to it that the coil heads are all evenly heated and prevent hot spots in the coil to ensure a better vaping experience and longer coil life. It also has a noise cancellation feature on the power output.
At first glance, the entire kit looks pretty impressive and nicely designed. The included slipstream tank offers a TPD-compliant 2 mL capacity. It features a top-fill and coil system that is just like the OSUB One Kit or Smok’s Helmet Nano.
You can grab your own Kroma kit for as low as NZD $69.99 at nzecigstore.co.nz. The kit includes an iTaste Kroma 75W mod, a slipstream tank, a slipstream tank coil, a USB cable, and the very useful user manual. Colors available are black, white, and red.
If you are already an Innokin user, then the menu functions will all be familiar for you. The Kroma iTaste still is a three-click on/off mod. To toggle between the two modes, just press the power and up buttons simultaneously. If you click the power and down buttons at the same time for 3 seconds in TC mode, this enables pre-boost ramp-up and allows you to choose your output wattage between 25 watts and 75 watts.
The Kroma has a maximum output of up to 75 watts and max temperature of 600F (315C) when in Temperature Control mode. I suggest that for sub-ohm vaping, the 0.8 ohm Kanthal coil from the starter kit should be used, and the 0.5 ohm stainless steel coil for temperature control.
To change wattage, just hold either the up or down button for 3 seconds. After the wattage number prompts on the screen, press up or down to adjust as desired. Meanwhile, if you press the up and down buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds, it will change the menu’s orientation depending if you are a left- or right-handed user.
If you want to switch between Celsius and Fahrenheit in TC mode, just cycle above or below the respective maximum temperatures. The temperature reading will automatically change. The mod will also alert you to choose the type of coil you are using.
To sum this review up, an aesthetically pleasing and not gaudy device really deserves premium e-liquids. The rich, full flavor, and thick vapor blends of Caktus Juice promises its consumers a tasty mouth explosion. It has eight unique blends to offer; Strawberry, Tangy Grape, Pineapple, Tangy Apple, Watermelon, Toffee Apple, Strawberry Cream, and Berry Crunch. For as low as NZD $7.99, you can grab your own 10-ml bottle now only at NZ Ecig Store. All flavors come with different nicotine concentration levels as well.
