CoolFire IV

CoolFire IV

My first comment, when I received the CoolFire IV from Innokin to review just a little over one month ago now, was, best design I’ve seen from you guys since the introduction of the VTR. And six weeks on, after using it on a daily basis I’m sticking by those first impressions.

Yes, it has all the functionality and reliable performance we have come to expect from Innokin, but this time with a touch of real class in its appearance, size, and choice of colours.

Firing a large range of tank resistances from 0.2Ω all the way up to 3.1Ω and from 6W up to a maximum 40W in a compact size of only 3.93”. The CoolFire IV is a very impressive little performer that you’re going to find very hard to put down I can assure you!

Unboxing

Remove the outer shrink wrapping along with the decorative cardboard sleeve and you will find the resistant plastic casing with the CoolFire IV inside.

Detach the two stickers that hold the upper lid closed, to access your CoolFire IV device along with an ego 510 threaded adapter, USB charging cable. You will also find inside located underneath the foam housing a manual and Innokin stickers.

The rear contains an overview of the products features, so be sure to read this entirely including the age and health warning before purchasing it.

Function & Performance

I have used the ranges supplied in this chart to test the CoolFire IV’s full range, from 6 watts all the way up to its maximum of 40 watts. I have also used the iSub G, along with the Smok VTC Pro, and three different E-juices with varying PG/VG mixtures from Space Jam, Cuttwood, and Mystique to gauge its overall performance for you.

REACH compliant

If you intend to use this range of E-Liquids, please make sure they meet the current requirements set out by your countries regulatory bodies.
For EU countries, more information on this can be found here along with REACH’s partner agencies from around the globe.

E-Liquids may contain diacetyl (DA) and acetyl propionyl (AP) or other carcinogenic ingredients or disease-causing substances, so please be aware of this and seek medical advice before using any of the products used in my reviews.

People can suffer from allergies to chemicals that may be present in the makeup of certain types of E-liquids or produced in their vapour. People can become sensitive to, or even allergic to Nickel or Titanium used in Temperature Controlled designed coils. Again, please be aware of this and seek medical advice before using any of the products used in my reviews. Also, check with your E-liquid supplier or the equipment manufacturers directly before purchase and use.

You might find this range of calculators provided by Steam Engine particularly useful, so thank you to Lars for allowing me to include them in my reviews. These calculators are currently under development, and the information that they contain may change at any time without notice. Please read the How It Works section for a more in-depth understanding. And never leave your device charging unattended, make sure you are using the recommended battery for your device, and always remember, SAFETY FIRST.

Potential Polycarbonate problems

It is well known that certain e-liquid ingredients can cause cracking or even melting of polycarbonate plastic or acrylic tanks and tubes. For further information on this subject, please check with your E-juice supplier or contact the manufacturer directly.

The CoolFire IV is a very well designed compact device packed with the latest technology that looks good and sits comfortably in the palm of your hand.

It’s 510 connector has a spring loaded positive pin made with durable stainless steel threading allowing for flush mounting of a wide variety of different tanks with an ego thread adapter also included.

The CoolFire IV uses OLED clear bright technology found on recent models from the Innokin range making it easy to see and adjust your settings to an orientation that suits you best. The display shows the resistance of the attached coil, current voltage, (adjustable in increments of 0.1) along with the wattage, (adjustable in increments of 0.5) using the three well placed and very comfortable buttons. You also have a visual display of the device’s current battery charge which appears to be reasonably accurate.

What I love about Innokin’s products is the degree of accuracy and safety measures that are included in their designs. This is what they say.

The Cool Fire IV uses Vrms DC current being very accurate with a power deviation of only 0.1Watt. The full 40 Watts is precisely maintained between resistances of 0.3 to 2.5 Ohms. Therefore, you have no wasted power, and exact accuracy means you are always vaping at the power level you choose. Vrms provides superior precision in delivering the correct wattage Ohm’s Law requires and stable power means better vapour.

 

Conclusion

I’m going to keep this part of the review short and sweet just like the quick overview of the CoolFire IV due to time constraints.

It appears that Innokin have finally struck gold with this latest edition, and I would be amazed if this does not become the biggest selling product in their range for 2015.

There is very little not to like about it if anything at all. The performance was excellent as is the wealth of technology and safety features included in its design, in a size and choice of well-suited colours that is sure to please.

Comfort is assured due to the smooth satin finish and rounded edges in a weight that is comfortable to hold, and it’s also very pleasing to the eye. The performance with both the iSub G and Smok VTC Pro at the ranges tested provided great vapour and flavour as well.

The only consideration I would have is a version with a removable battery option that some people may prefer?

Expected price range appears to be around the £40.00 or $48.00 mark.

  3. Hi there I’ve had my cool fire for now 3 or more months and I am confused hopefully you can help me, I’m on 3.5v and 20 watts but I’d like to have it more up as im smoking far to much, but as I turn it up it just burns the coil straight out and I don’t understand why? I let the liquid soak into the coil , Why have 40 watts on it when you can’t even turn it up to it? Please help

    Many thanks scott

  4. Hey, so I’ve just bought my innokin coolfire IV, and I’ve used the scratch test thing to ensure its a proper innokin product which it is! But I don’t know if it’s charging or not (first time vaping/using this device) how long should the first ever charging session be and how do I know if it’s charging or not (it’s plugged in using the cable that was provided and using my phones charging plug, but I don’t see any signs of charging, any help guys?

    Reply
    • Aminah, when you plug it in to charge, the small LED light should come on – amber or green. Once it reaches full charge, the light goes off.

      Reply
    • For some reason the charge status doesn’t update on the coolfire 4 unless you leave the bottom switch in the ON position. So leave it ON, click 3 times to lock it and charge it until the green light goes off. Around 4 hours if it was empty.

  6. The first time that I have had beer without a cigarette in 30 years, what a fantastic product, I have tried electronic cigarettes and even hypnosis, I only ever smoked when drinking beer, but could not enjoy a beer without a cigarette. I am using a coffee e liquid and can only say that I am astounded with the satisfaction that it has given me, with no craving for a cigarette, no bad breath or aftertaste in the morning, no smell and it actually tastes really nice. I cannot believe just how good this is, very excited about quitting smoking at last ! it is much cheaper, but that is not really my issue, as I only smoked about 30 cigarettes a week. Incidentally the product is reassuringly quite weighty and well built, very we’ll engineered and looks expensive, overall, I am absolutely delighted !!!

  10. My question for the coolfire 4 plus is if I’m vaping on watts do I need to set the correct volts aswell or or do I not need to mess with the volts and vice versa ?
    Thanks

    Reply
    • It will work out that calculation for you.
      It’s better to set in into wattage mode and adjust from there.

      Reply
      • Thanks for that.
        That is what I thought but just couldn’t find any info to clarify it.
        Appreciate that Nigel. Just one more question then lol what is the point in having voltage mode on the coolfire ?

  11. Hi , Loved mine at first but now the tank is leaking .. Liquid runs out of air vent as soon as I put liquid in , so I’ve only been adding enough to enjoy 1 vaping session at a time .. Bit of a pain but worth it as I love this machine , any ideas or do I just get a different tank ?

    Reply
    • Hi, I am having the same problems. No idea what to do about it but it is using liquid so fast, refilling several times a day. Using the genie top. Look forward to responses to this as I am not sure if it could be user error. Also is it best to store it on its side or upright? Sorry for two comments forgot to set email alert

      Reply
    • I’m having the same issue! Have you gotten a response on the issue? Plus every now and then when I go to vap I just get air like it is turned off, after a few tries it does automatically turn off. I have it set to 23 w.

  12. Hope you can help im going crazy with my Coolfire IV!
    I brought it one month ago now and ive taken it back to the shop 5 times with having major problems with the coils burning out, they have changed the coils 6 times and tried different things but it keeps burning!
    I brought a coil on Saturday just gone and its lasted 4 days, ive never had a full week off one coil! its costing me a fortune and driving me nuts as i love the vapour and given up smoking now for over 5 weeks..

    Please help?
    Helen

    • I’m having exactly the same problem. Have you got to the bottom of it yet?

      Reply
    • I have the same problem only worse. I am lucky to get a whole day with a coil and, as you said, it is costing a fortune. When I ask about this at the Innevape store where I got it the only answers I get are, “well, the coils do need to be changed on all tanks”, “That never happens to us and we use these tanks as our testers” and lastly, “I don’t know what to tell you”.

    as im a heavy smoker i was told to use no higher then 6mg,but i want tobacco flavour

    PLEASE HELP
    JO

    Reply
    • I know its a late reply but the best tobacco flavour I have come across is the grim reaper brand and the flavour is called bite the bullet

  14. I have had the Cool Fire 4 for a few days now and after playing with the settings I would recommend to start with 23.0 watts, 3.3 volts and leave the ohms somewhere low approximately 0.47. With these settings you get maximum flavour, vapour and not such a hard hit on your throat.

  15. Hi can any 1 help me I just got cool Fire Iv plus and I dunno wat watts and volts to use cuz every time I put it above 3.0v it’s taste like burnt? So ive set it to 2.8volts and 21.0watts and still not getting the best flavour?

I’ve just brought a cool fire 1V and l can change the volts and the wattage settings but for some reason l can’t get into change the ohms I’ve tryed just about everything it doesn’t matter what buttons I press in what order I just can’t get in to change it and it’s frustrating me can someone please help.

    Reply
    • You can’t change the ohms. The ohms are the resistance of the coil you have fitted. To change the ohms you need to change the coil.

  18. Hi. I’ve got CF4 and Aspire Nautilus Mini. Occasionaly coil resistance jumps up to 3-4 Ohms and taste smells burnt. Is it coil problem or CF4?

      • Me too it crackles quite a lot but is something wrong with it?

        • If you are using the isub atomizer that is most likely the problem. For some reason these are the noisiest atomizers out there.

          Reply
        • I was getting this, when I was on voltage mode (at about 4.5v) … switched over to wattage mode (about 25w) and it’s now much quieter. Still a little crackle, but nothing like before. Presumably, the sound comes from liquid getting onto the heated elements inside.

  20. I have the cool fire 5, it is totally awesome. I use I constantly and no complaints what so ever in 4 weeks I have charged it once. Its a must have. I was going through the pen styled vaps like normal cigarettes cost me a fortune weekly as they burnt out easily. My coolfire 5 is yes a bit more expensive but worth every penny spent.

  21. Hi,
    My cool fire 6 plus is leaking all the time. I’ve only had it a week or 2. It seems to be leaking at the bottom of the tank were you can open the valve. It’s really disappointing as I like this product so much. Please help why us it leaking..
