Vaporesso Armour Pro

The Armour Pro is a single battery device from Vaporesso, incorporating a 0.96inch colour screen with in-built firing button and the ability to accept three different battery types, with 18650, 20700 and 21700 batteries compatible!

The upgraded Omni Board 4.0 integrates Insta-Fire technology, with a 0.002s firing time, and can output power up to 100W. Multiple safety protections are built in, and the 2A quick charging support can halve charging times.

Design and Build Quality

Measuring 38.5mm x 27mm x 86mm, the Vaporesso Armour Pro is a good sized single battery mod, with smooth curves that makes the device feel comfortable in hand. It's quite lightweight too - a really pocket friendly device. I really do like the looks of this mod, I find that it's one of the best looking devices I have seen in recent times!

On the front of the mod is a large 0.96inch OLED colour screen, which is pleasing on the eye and easy to read. The fire button is actually built into the screen itself so all you need to do is give the screen a squeeze to fire. Underneath the screen you will find the up, down and menu buttons.

A hinged battery door is located at the bottom of the mod, and the Vaporesso can accept a single 18650 (using the included adaptor), 20700 or 21700 battery. 2A fast charging through the USB port is also supported.

Using the Vaporesso Armour Pro

  • Firstly, insert an 18650, 20700 or 21700 battery. If using an 18650 battery you will need to use the supplied adaptor
  • Five clicks of the fire button will turn the Vaporesso Armour Pro on and off
  • Long pressing the Menu button for three seconds will allow you to switch between different output modes
  • Smart VW, VT (SS, Ni, Ti), TCR (M1, M2), BYPASS, CCT, CCW, VV, CCV and Super Player modes are available
  • 2A fast charging is supported through the USB charging port

Performance

For a single battery device, the Vaporesso Armour Pro packs plenty of power, with an output wattage range of 5-100W! It can also fire resistances right down to 0.03ohm, meaning that you can run all the latest sub ohm tanks on it, and firing time is pretty much instant.

There are plenty of different output modes to choose from, and temperature control is supported on this device with presets for Ni200, SS and Titanium, and two memory slots for TCR settings. BYPASS mode allows the device to act like a mechanical mod, and the CCT/CCW modes allow you to set custom output vaping graphs.

I have primarily used the Vaporesso Armour Pro with a 21700 battery and the VZone Preco Tank at 50W, and I have found that I will get almost a full days vaping out of it. 2A fast charging is supported through the USB port, and it's easy to switch batteries in and out.

Conclusion

The Vaporesso Armour Pro mod is one of my favourite single battery devices of 2018, I love the looks and form factor with this device, and the large OLED colour screen is definitely a particular highlight!

It is a feature rich device, packing in just about every vaping feature you can think of, and I like the fact that it supports three different battery types too. This is a device I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a single battery mod at the moment!
