Wotofo Mdura Pro mod

Antony checks out another tough mudder of a mod, the IP67 rated Wotofo Mdura Pro mod

Share on:

Recently I’ve been taking a look at some of the IP67 (shock/dust/water resistant) rated mods currently available, and today it’s the turn of the Wotofo Mdura Pro mod which has been sent over for review by our friends at Sourcemore.

Wotofo Mdura Pro mod Nexchip inside

There’s not actually a great deal in the box, just the Mdura Pro mod, a brief user leaflet, and a USB-C charge cable. The Mdura Pro is also available as a kit with the rather excellent NexMESH Pro tank included as well, which I reviewed last year. It’s available in five different colour options and I was sent the “King Kong Blue” version for review which has a blue “leather” patch on the back. The only variant that looks drastically different is the “Retro Red” version where the black rubber coating is red.

Specifications

  • 88.1mm x 48.5mm x 34.6mm
  • 193.3 grams
  • Zinc Alloy & rubber construction
  • IP67 rated
  • 1.2 inch colour TFT screen
  • Dual 18650 battery
  • Output 5~230 watts / 0.5~8.2 volts
  • Resistance range 0.1~2.5ohms
  • USB-C charging / 2 Amps

Wotofo Mdura Pro mod close ups

Looking around the mod, there’s a rather large 1.2 inch colour screen on the front panel with three control buttons and a covered USB-C charge port, around the back you have a large padded “leather” panel, and finally there is a large fire button on the left side and this is all surrounded by a rubber coating. Whilst it’s a bit bulky for a dual 18650 mod, it’s not offensively so and is comfortable to use even with my smaller hands, plus you have the added piece of mind that it should stand up to daily knocks and bumps thanks to that IP67 rating.

The buttons all have a very nice positive response and there’s zero button rattle evident. I particularly like the large fire button which is perfectly placed for either trigger or thumb firing and is easy to locate thanks to it being slightly raised from the side panel.

The large colour screen is fairly vibrant and the information is well laid out and easy to read, it could do with being a little brighter though and can be a bit difficult to see in direct sunlight. You can also turn it off in use by quickly tapping the selection button next to the up/down buttons if you want to conserve a bit of battery life.

Up top you have a centered 510 platform which is rather large, at 31.6 mm wide I was easily able to accommodate my Glaz rta on here and smaller atomisers can even start to look a little lost. I particularly enjoyed using this with the Wotofo TrollX rta that Sourcemore also sent out for review, this made a perfect match up especially as both items were sent in blue.

The USB-C charge port is protected by a rubber grommet, this is easily removed and the port isn’t so deeply recessed that you can’t get a charge cable in here which is something I experienced with another mod I took a look at a while ago. This promises 2 amp fast charging but in my test run it peaked at around 1.4 amps.

Wotofo Mdura Pro mod battery cover

The spring loaded battery door is on the underside and is held shut with a latch, it's nice to see that both the latch itself and the area that it clips into are both metal here. The battery door has the clearest battery markings you could ask for and just in case there’s any doubt, the bottom of the battery tubes are also clearly marked, full points here. This is all nicely sealed with rubber and has some emergency venting in place should the worst happen.

Wotofo Mdura Pro mod screen

One aspect that could be improved massively here is the instruction leaflet as it’s rather lacking in detail simply telling you how to turn the mod on/off, lock/unlock the up/down buttons, clear the puff counter and change the screen colour. The Mdura Pro mod is much more capable than this though, and you’d be missing out on a lot of features which are accessed by pressing the small menu button next to the up/down buttons. A short press will turn the screen on/off or a long press will bring up a menu screen with three power modes, temperature control modes, and a memory function which can store nine preset values!

MTL users may be a little disappointed as there’s no voltage option and wattage is only adjustable in one watt increments, but otherwise this is a feature packed board. Power delivery seems responsive and consistent and of course you have all the safety features you would expect built in.

Pros

  • IP67 rated
  • Large 1.2 inch colour screen
  • Well constructed 
  • Fully featured board

Cons

  • Poor instructions
  • Screen could be brighter

Conclusion

Out of the IP67 rated mods I’ve taken a look at recently, I think the Wotofo Mdura Pro mod is my favourite so far. It’s a convenient size and I love the large colour screen and tactile buttons. That large 510 platform is excellent as well and is easily able to accommodate monster tanks like the Glaz rta which is an added bonus. If you’re in the market for a new tank as well, I can heartily recommend getting this as the full kit with the NexMESH Pro tank included.

Many thanks to Sourcemore for sending the Wotofo Mdura Pro mod over for review. They also gave me a discount code for you to use, MDURAM will get you the Mdura Pro mod for just $36.90.

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.
