Wotofo Mdura Mod

Antony takes a look at the Wotofo Mdura which is the baby brother of the already great Wotofo Mdura Pro. It certainly has a lot to live up to!

A little while ago Sourcemore sent over the Wotofo Mdura Pro for me to take a look at (Review here) and that has become a firm favourite, so I asked if I could try out it’s smaller brother, the newly released Mdura mod.

Wotofo Mdura Mod box and contents

This comes in typical Wotofo packaging with the device clearly visible under a plastic lid, luckily they’ve included finger cutouts in the lid again this time as it has a nasty habit of attaching itself to the main cardboard box underneath like a limpet. As this is the mod only, there’s very little included, just a small multi language instruction leaflet and a usb-c charge cable. However it is also available as a Kit with the nexMini subtank included should you wish to go down that road.

Specifications

  • Size 86 x 51 x 26mm
  • 103.4 grams
  • Dual 18650 battery (not included) / 2 amp charging
  • Output 5~200 watts / 0.5~8.2 volts
  • Resistance range 0.1~2.5ohms
  • 0.96 inch TFT colour screen

Wotofo Mdura Mod all angles

The Wotofo Mdura is available in four colours; orange, black, blue and red, and I was sent the “King Kong Black” version for review. The back and sides of the mod are dominated by a large “leather” panel which is lightly padded for comfort and sports stitching down one side (green in this case) and a lightly embossed “MDURA” logo running around the spine onto the other side from the stitching (this is actually quite difficult to see and you have to catch it in just the right light - see photo below). The leather panel is framed inside a metal cage running around both sides which is in gunmetal to set it off from the main chassis which is a matte black in all the colour variants.

The front panel has a small cutout which is set back slightly from the rest of the chassis, this is the perfect size for my fingers to sit in which makes this extremely easy to use as a trigger fire mod with that large leather panel providing a good amount of grip and adding to the overall comfort in use. It’s just as easy to use when thumb firing and even with batteries installed it still feels relatively lightweight and well balanced in the hand so this just adds to the usability, I’d be quite happy using this as a daily driver.

The control panel is dominated by a 0.96 inch colour screen sat between the power and up/down buttons, all the buttons are super clicks with great tactile feedback and zero button rattle.

Wotofo Mdura Mod 510 and handcheck

The spring loaded 510 plate is completely flush with the top of the mod so you won’t experience any apparent gapping but this means you’re going to have to watch out for atty rash. I should note here that although the Mdura is 26mm wide the area around the 510 plate is only about  24.5mm wide, atomizers up to this size will look ok but anything larger will start to overhang. This seems like something of an odd choice but it should be noted that most “25mm” atomizers are in fact smaller than this so the vast majority of them will look fine here depending upon your personal level of OCD in these matters!

Wotofo Mdura Mod battery insertion

The battery door is your typical hinged mechanism, there’s a bit of play in the hinge whilst it’s open but everything is nice and secure once it’s shut so I’ve had no issues with it coming open in use. Although the battery orientation is clearly marked in white on the door itself I found the labelling a little bit confusing, luckily the bottom of the battery tubes are also clearly marked for battery orientation and I’ve found that much more helpful in this case.

Wotofo Mdura Mod usb port

The usb-c charge port is on the bottom left corner of the Mdura mod and is concealed under a small plastic bung. I’ve found this to be a bit fiddly to access, you really need to dig your fingernails under the edges to get any purchase here! There’s claimed 2 amp charging here and in my test it peaked at 1.46 amps.

The Mdura is powered by Wotofo’s nexChip board and I was initially a little disappointed to find this is just a wattage only device after the fully featured board found on the Mdura Pro. Having said that the performance here has been stellar with a fast 0.001 second response time and all the modern safety features you would expect and up to 200 watts output so this is no slouch.

Pros

  • Nice compact dual 18650 mod
  • Good performance from the NexChip board

Cons

  • Confusing labelling on battery door
  • Wattage only

Conclusion

Another great entry from Wotofo, whilst it might not be as fully featured or sport the ip67 rating of the Mdura Pro, there’s still a lot to like here. I particularly like the slimline chassis as this suits my smaller hands making this comfortable to use, this does mean of course that some of your larger atomizers might look a little out of place though so bear this in mind if that’s something that might bother you.

Many thanks to Sourcemore for sending the Wotofo Mdura mod out for review. They’ve kindly supplied me with a discount code for you to use as well: MDURM will allow you to bag the Mdura mod for just $25.89.

I was a twenty a day smoker for 25 years and like most smokers I was always going to quit "next week". Having hit my mid forties and having the usual smokers cough and difficulty with anything more than moderate exercise it was obviously time to give up the cancer sticks. I bought my first e-cigarette in 2013 when they were expensive, difficult to find and quite frankly... crap. I used it for about a week then went back to the roll ups, mark up another failed quit attempt. The fact that I had just changed jobs and was under quite a lot of stress probably didn't help. Move on to 2016 and whilst I was browsing eBay I noticed that one of the suggested items that would occasionally pop up was for a cheap e-cigarette. It looked similar to the one I'd bought 3 years earlier but it was only £5 (about 8 times cheaper than before) so I decided to give it another go on a whim. Once the kit arrived I managed to gradually replace the cigarettes with my new kit over a two month period and got into watching YouTube reviews for newer kit. My cheap and cheerful kit was replaced by a more upmarket affair, and being a noob I made a mistake once it arrived... I put in the supplied direct lung coil, this was of course a complete revelation and I haven't touched a cigarette since. Oh and I no longer spend the first five minutes of every day having a coughing fit either.
