I received these devices free for reviewing. The following review are my unbiased thoughts on them.
It comes with the bare necessities. A poster-sized manual. A battery safety card. A customer card, and a pack of inedible hard candies
It also comes with a silicone sleeve.
Much like the XCube 2, the Koopor Plus is a SOLID and very heavy device. It feels and looks great!
I do get a little button rattle from the fire button, but it’s nothing that annoys me - I only noticed it when I shook it just now, to find out if it was rattly
The battery cover is flush and sits in place with some good magnets. It won’t fall off.
The display is bright and the menu is easy - Three clicks to enter the menu, up/down to move around, click and hold to select (or just wait, and it will auto select). The menu is structured like the XCube 2 and it does the same.
In power mode it’s a beast. It fires from 6W to 200W (depending on resistance).
Does it work? Yes. Without issues? No. Not without issues. Far from it.
If you’ve followed the XCube 2 threads on here, you’ll remember that there were people who had massive issues with it. A lot of these issues were fixed with the release of the XCube 2 firmware 1.093 - but not all.
The Koopor Plus firmware is based on the XCube 2 firmware, and unfortunately not on 1.093 but on 1.092 (is my guess), because it behaves the same way.
My biggest issue (and it’s huge), is that it doesn’t measure resistance correctly. For me it always measures at least 0.05o too high. That means if you put in a Crown 0.25o SS coil head it will read at least 0.30o, sometimes higher, sometimes not. Even when the coil is at room temperature. This is a BIG problem. Because it reads the initial resistance too high TC will not work correctly - it will jump out of TC mode and into VW mode, and it will keep doing it, until you go into settings and adjust ohms to the lowest possible value, and that’s not even always the correct value as you can only adjust +/- 0.05o. But usually it’s close enough for it to stay in TC-mode.
- Comes with a sleeve
- 200W POWER!
- Doesn’t use an app
- Comes with a sleeve that fits perfectly
- Cheap, from what I’ve seen (I’ve seen it at $40)
- Fingerprint magnet
- Uses min/soft/norm/hard/max instead if wattage in TC-mode
- Sleeve is orange
- Suffers from same bugs as is in the XCube 2 1.092 firmware
- Ohms are off!
- TC only works if you adjust ohms.
- Firmware is not upgradable (well, it is, but you have to have special tools and software - or send it to your dealer)
This wasn’t a very long or very thorough review of the Koopor Plus, but it covers what I consider to be the most important stuff. I decided against going into further details as the bugs were frustrating to me.
So, should you get it? Well, if the TC-bugs annoy you, you can always use it as a VW-device. If you’re shopping for a TC-device, I’d say look elsewhere if you can’t live with the bugs. As a VW-device it is a very good device, especially for the price! As for me? I’m not using it very much because of the bugs. If only I could upgrade the firmware myself, all would be good, but you can’t really upgrade it yourself without a huge hassle.
TFV4 mini (full kit)
This is essentially a mini version of the TFV4 - that’s the only difference. It produces the same amount of vapor and tastes the same. They share coil heads and RBA-decks.
The TFV4 Mini Full kit comes with:
- The device! (Surprise!)
- A pack of cotton
- A manual
- A TFV4 family brochure
- TF-RCA: A RBA-deck designed for claptons with a clapton installed
- An airflow restriction thing for the RBA-deck
- A couple of rubber tank protector bands
- A replacement silicone fill port
- Spare o-rings
- A spare clapton wire to make a clapton for the RBA
- A black screwdriver
- Spare pyrex tank glass
- TF-CLP2: A dual clapton coil head
- TF-S6: A sextuple coil head
- A small pack of hard candies. They aren’t very good. Don’t eat them.
It looks like a thinner (22mm) version of the TFV4 (24.5mm), which is exactly what it is. No more, no less. It looks great on all mods! Here it is on a Koopor Plus:
Compare it to a regular TFV4:
It comes with a new RBA-section, apparently designed for clapton builds. It has a huge airflow hole in the middle, which can actually be made smaller by a small part that comes with it.
The small metal thing fits into the RBA airhole in the middle. To get it out again, you can stick a small screwdriver into the bit and wiggle it out.
It also comes with a sextuple coil head. That’s right. Six freakin’ coils! You guys know I’m a titanium kind of guy, but I’ll tell you, this sextuple coil head produces some pretty intense flavor and thick clouds! I’ve used it for over a week now, and it’s still as good as when I installed it.
It also comes with a dual coil clapton head - But I haven’t tried that.
The only other thing that’s changed, is that the drip tip’s inner tube is now made of glass.
- Performs like a TFV4
- Insane vapor!
- Insane flavor (especially with the TF-R2 dual coil deck and titanium coils)!
- Small - fits all
- Comes with an RBA-deck and lots of spare parts
- Small capacity - Especially since this tank drinks juice just as fast as a full blown TFV4.
So, is it any good? Yes! It’s just as good as the TFV4! So if you like that, you’ll like this. You might like it less, because of the decreased capacity though.
Pair this with the TF-R2 dual coil RBA-deck (or try doing a dual coil on the one that comes with it!) - do a titanium build and you’ve got greatness! ;D
I think that’s about it. Not much else to say about the TFV4 Mini. This is a great little tank!
I’m giving away THREE SETS of these things. Each set is a Koopor Plus and a TFV4 mini!
How do you win a set? Either post your favorite under rated recipe or find a great joke and post it in the comments below (or do both) Give away will run until Sunday, November 15th 2015 at 22:00 CET (21:00 UTC).
