The Vaporesso XROS 2 has lifted the 2022 Red Dot Award given for products that demonstrate outstanding design. The company says its innovative signature XROS series “has always been beloved in the vaping community for its stylish design, and reliable functionality. The award was even more impressive considering it was the only open pod system to take home the award in 2022.”

A good vaping device shouldn’t just be about looks,” said a representative for XROS 2’s ID team. “We know users want more.”

Vaporesso says that from conception to completion, the team adhered to the concept that a great product should not only be good-looking but also functionally easy to use. The result is an open pod device that features an ideal fusion of aesthetics and practicality.

With the XROS 2 we see a departure from Vaporesso’s past product design elements such as the screen and three-coloured power display light. In its place, we see a sleek new tiding battery indicator display, comprised of 4 separate single-point light sources. The concept is simple: With each light representing 25%, all four lights indicate full power, down to 25% when only one light is lit. More interesting however is the tiding indicator’s secondary function. When taking a drag from the XROS 2, the tidal light group will light up dynamically in response to the user’s suction, much like the fluctuations of an ocean tide. Overall, the minimal tiding display is refreshingly simple, elegant and practical in use,” the company adds.

The XROS 2 eschews the old three-slot airflow design for a new water drop-shaped air inlet, allowing users more precise control over airflow.

Now, users can dial in airflow to the perfect presentation of taste, no matter the resistance values in different pods, or user’s preferences. Aligning with users' habits, the air inlet is placed on the back of the device, and the airway is easily adjusted by simply turning to the right or left.”

The aim of the XROS 2's body design is to be both tactilely and visually pleasing. The CNC machined aircraft-grade aluminium makes for a lightweight body, with colour gradient sandblasting anodizing, exposure imaging, and diamond cutting processes resulting in a final product that Vaporesso say is both aesthetically pleasing and comfortable to hold.

As stated by one of XROS 2’s ID designers, “Minor details shouldn’t be ignored. In fact, it’s those small details that require more attention. Vaporesso’s attention to detail with the XROS 2 comes down to the finest degree of precision. Instead of a simple right angle at its base, We utilised a high gloss diamond cutting process to create a 150° refined curve that makes for a more harmonious appearance and a more comfortable grip.

Through its pursuit of next-level craftsmanship and practicality, the XROS 2 has quickly become a best-seller on the market within a year of its launch. Meanwhile, Vaporesso continues to explore boundaries and push the boundaries, as it works to continue improving the XROS series and create other high-quality products.”

In September, Vaporesso launched a new color line for the XROS 2, XROS MINI and XROS NANO, along with new cartridge configurations for the XROS MINI and NANO, bringing greater variety and enjoyment to vapers.
