Vaporesso Golden Target Mini Kit

Hot on the heels of the Vaporesso Target Mini Kit I reviewed recently comes the Vaporesso Golden Target Mini Kit, which offers the original Target Mini Kit with a very blingy gold plated finish on the Target Mini mod and Guardian tank!

The Golden Target Mini Kit has the same specs as the original Vaporesso Target Mini Kit, it’s only the finish that has changed. The Target Mini Limited Edition Gold Mod retains that famed trigger style shape, and has a 1400 mAh built in internal battery, up to 40W of output power and a board that supports Ni200, Stainless Steel and Titanium in temperature control, as well as having a custom TCR input. The Guardian Limited Edition Gold Tank has been designed to be TPD compliant, and has a leak resistant design, dual child locking mechanism, 2ml capacity, mouth to lung and direct lung specific coils and drip tips as well as top filling.

I felt the original Vaporesso Target Mini Kit was a superb little kit, so let's see what the Golden Target Mini Kit offers...

Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold Mod

Sporting the same measurements as the Vaporesso Target Mini, 36.5mm x 24.2mm x 58.1mm, the Vaporesso Golden Target Mini is a compacted version of the original Vaporesso Target device, with a unique trigger styled design. It’s teeny tiny, comfortable to hold and operate, and has a large OLED screen alongside a good sized power, mode, plus and minus buttons. The OLED screen shows information on output power, battery life, temperature limit (in TC mode), resistance and output voltage, and a USB port is present which charges the internal 1400 mAh battery.

The most eyecatching part of the Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold is quite clearly the gold plated finish, which has actually been done very well and I have grown to quite like it! It will polarize opinion, others will like it, others will not, but it definitely makes the Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold stand out from the crowd. Time will tell whether that exquisite gold finish will stand up to the test of time, however so far it has done very well, with no chips or scratches present.

Operating the Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold Mod

  • 5 clicks of the power button turn the Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold on and off
  • Wattage is adjusted in 0.1W increments, holding down plus or minus will cycle through wattage settings quicker
  • Hold down the mode button to switch between wattage, Ni200, Titanium and SS temperature control mode (temperature control denoted by VT on the Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold)
  • Press the mode button three times consecutively then use the plus or minus buttons to enter the TCR of a specific wire manually, quick press mode twice to exit TCR input mode
  • Pressing mode and plus simultaneously will lock the Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold
  • Pressing mode and minus simultaneously will lock in your resistance
  • Holding down plus and minus will rotate the screen display
  • The Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold display will automatically turn off after 20 seconds of inactivity
  • If the Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold is not used for three minutes, it will automatically enter standby mode
  • Short circuit, no atomiser, low voltage, 10 second cut off, overcharging protection and low battery protection are all built into the Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold Mod

Vaporesso Guardian Limited Edition Gold Tank

The Vaporesso Guardian Limited Edition Gold Tank is a 2ml TPD compliant tank, designed to be leakproof, it’s top filling with a childproof safety lock, has large pyrex glass viewing windows and generous adjustable airflow controlled by a smooth airflow control ring. One of the key selling points of the original Vaporesso Guardian tank is it’s ability to fully cater to both mouth to lung and direct to lung inhalers, with a CCELL-GD SS 0.5ohm coil for direct lung and a CCELL-GD MTL 1.4ohm coil for mouth to lung. There are also dedicated drip tips included too for each option.  

Again, as with the Vaporesso Target Mini Limited Edition Gold, there are no differences in performance to be found with the Guardian Limited Edition Gold Tank, the same coils and drip tips options are supplied, along with the same level of adjustable airflow. The only difference is the gold plated finish, which does look superb on this tank!

Vaporesso Golden Target Mini Kit Performance

The Golden Target Mini Kit is bundled with the same coils as the Vaporesso Target Mini Kit, offers the same choice of driptips and adjustable airflow, and after retesting it again for review purposes, performs in exactly the same way as the Vaporesso Target Mini Kit. The only thing that has changed here is the finish, which definitely feels like a premium upgrade to the original stainless steel finish. That is no bad thing however, as I had previously mentioned in my Vaporesso Target Mini Kit review the performance is actually pretty impressive from this little kit.

To recap, there’s 5-40W of output power available, with resistance fired down to 0.2ohm. Stable temperature control is found with support for Ni200, Titanium and Stainless Steel, with a custom TCR too. Direct lung and mouth to lung vaping options are found with the CCELL-GD SS 0.5ohm and CCELL-GD MTL 1.4ohm coils respectively, with drip tips included in the kit to suit each style. Both provide pretty impressive flavour and there are more than ample airflow options with the adjustable airflow. Battery life is a big plus with the Golden Target Mini Kit, as a USB rechargeable 1400 mAh built in Lithium battery offers some of the best battery performance from a mini mod!

Conclusion

The Vaporesso Golden Target Mini Kit performs in the same way as the original Vaporesso Target Mini Kit I have previously reviewed, there’s nothing different at all about the performance, however it does come with a very nice gold plated finish that has actually been pulled off really well indeed. It does have that novelty bling factor, and it absolutely oozes swagger!

It isn’t just a novelty product however, the Golden Target Mini Kit does provide a really good vaping experience for both mouth to lung and direct to lung vapers, in a very small and easily pocketable package. The Guardian tank does provide pretty decent flavour and there is great battery life when compared to other 'mini' mods from the Golden Target Mini, whether you decide to purchase the Golden Target Mini Kit as a back up device or one of your main daily carries you won’t be disappointed!

There aren't many of these about at present, if you are a vendor and want to stock this item then please contact Rich on 0208 207 0454 for details on wholesale.
