Simple sleek stylish and very straightforward to operate, the Endura T18 is the perfect Christmas gift to help in converting your friends and loved ones to a far better alternative to smoking this Christmas, and at a very affordable price.
Innokin once again leads the way by designing the Endura T18 to a far higher standard than the earlier ego style batteries, and a much-improved boost in flavour thanks to the Japanese organic cotton that has now replaced the silica wicks, a suggestion I made to Innokin some months ago. Excellent Job!
Simplicity in operation is what is required when introducing someone to vaping for the very first time, along with a presentation to help make that transition just that little bit more appealing and of course, a device that has been designed primarily with mouth to lung inhalation in mind.The traditional smoker!
And for those of you who still haven’t made the switch, there are reported to be around 4000 less harmful chemicals to inhale with an E-cigarette, so no more smoke impregnated clothes to wash, a healthier heart and start to your day, every day, and all without missing out on your daily nicotine fix.
Better to quit than to vape yes, but better to vape than to smoke in my opinion. And with an abundance of choice in E-Liquid flavours at your disposal and four colour options to choose from with the new Endura T18, which includes Black, Aquamarine, Pink, and Stainless Steel you really can’t go wrong.
So what do you get for your money apart from a healthier lifestyle, and how much is it going to cost you?

The Endura T18 has been optimized for use at 14 Watts with a 1.5 Ohm replaceable Japanese organic cotton coil. The E-Liquids I have used during this review were supplied by Von Vape.
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 also 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.
And never leave your device charging unattended, make sure you are using the recommended battery if one is required for your device, and always remember, SAFETY FIRST.
The perfect choice for the beginner and experienced vaper alike. This device is best suited to the mouth to lung user rather than the cloud chasing enthusiast and works like a dream.
First, you will need to fill the 2.5ml stainless steel/pyrex glass tank with your chosen brand of E-liquid.
To do this just unscrew the top cap below the Delrin drip tip and pour your E-liquid in slowly around the inside of the tanks wall taking care not to get any inside the upper part of the coil situated in the center.
When the tank is full re-attach the top cap, connect the tank back on to the battery if you have removed it and turn the device on.
Use the pyrex glass window to see how much E-liquid you have left inside, and make sure you do not activate the device if you are running low on E-Liquid. To do so will burn the Japanese organic cotton, creating an unpleasant burnt taste in your mouth. Innokin recommends leaving the E-Liquid to soak into the organic cotton for a full five minutes before use.
The Endura T18 arrived with a fully charged 1000mAh battery, so there was no requirement to charge the device before using it. To check your devices charge status, turn it on by pressing the fire button three times in quick succession and check the surrounding LED lights colour when you fire it for the very first time.
A Green light will show that the battery is fully charged. Amber signals that the battery is some way between half full and low. Red indicates that the battery is holding a minimal amount of charge and will require you to re-charge the battery.
To charge your battery cell use the supplied charging cable only and connect it to the micro USB port found on the base of the Endura under the silver cap. Gently rotate the cap in a counter-clockwise direction and attach the cable to the Endura T18 and a suitable power source. During the charging cycle, the LED will remain illuminated displaying the colour that represents the current charge status. Once fully charged the LED will switch off to indicate that it is ready for use.
Turn off the power and remove the micro USB cable from the base of the battery once charging is complete ensuring that you cover the port on the base by turning the silver cap back into its original position.
One of the ingenious and very useful features of this device is that you have the ability to Vape While Charging the Endura T18, so, in theory, you should never be without a vape!
At some point, the coil will need replacing, and you will become aware of this as vapour production and throat hit starts to decline slowly. A spare coil has been provided, so all you have to do is remove the tank from the battery, unscrew the base section of the 2.5ml tank, remove the old coil and replace it with the new one and you’re ready to go again.
Replacement packs of five coils can be found at your local Innokin stockist, so it’s a good idea to pick up a spare box when you purchase the Endura T18.
This is something I do not usually say but, in this case, I think it more than warrants it.
The Endura T18 is the best device I have personally used for mouth to lung vaping that creates the most natural alternative to a traditional cigarette.
The throat hit is superb, and vapour production is more than plentiful, with no delay in receiving that nicotine fix that you require. Flavour is also significantly increased with a much purer taste than you will get from a silica wick thanks to the re-designed coils that now include Japanese organic cotton instead.
Filling the tank with E-Liquid and replacement of the coil is just about as straightforward as you can get with an Electronic Cigarette.
Build quality, style, and ease of use make this the best design in its class without exception to date. The Power/Fire Button is also the best I’ve used so far, with a soft tactile feel requiring little effort to activate it. You can press it in from the centre, top, or bottom and get the same response that shows that this is a precision engineered switch. And with a clear visual display of your battery charge around the outside finishes off this part of the user interface.
11.12.15 Innokin had reported a small problem with the switch on a limited number in their first batch, but the two I have been sent for review are working perfectly, and the initial problem has bee located and fixed.
The two air slots placed on top of the battery housing below the tank itself create the right amount airflow, giving you that tighter and near perfect draw sensation. The 510 connector created a reliable connection between the battery and attached 2.5ml tank. New users should also consider purchasing some cleaning fluid with the device to make sure the contact between the two remains constant. A few drops on a cotton bud will be sufficient to achieve the desired result as and when required.
The “Vape While Charging” technology for daily use is an added bonus as I have already mentioned, and with the advanced integrated safety precautions to help guard against overheating and over discharge, this will go a long way in improving charging safety and the overall reliability of this device.
Just like the prediction I made about the CoolFire IV which proved to be correct, this is going to be another very hot seller from the Innokin stable over the Christmas period and beyond. I very much hope to see a larger version of the T18 appear early on in the new year with an increase in battery size and tank capacity as well.
But for now, quit smoking, sit back vape and Enjoy!
Expected price range for the Innokin Endura T18 kit is supposed to be around R.R.P £39.00 or $48.00 mark. So why not shop around for some great Christmas bargains this year that I’m sure will be on offer!
