UD Apro 22 Kit

One of the latest starter kits to hit the market is the Apro 22 Kit, a tube shaped sub ohm kit from popular manufacturers UD (Youde), who are very well known for their Goblin and Bellus rebuildable tanks.

The UD Apro 22 Kit is aimed at those who are looking for a little more power from their starter kits, or for those looking for a powerful backup device. It can output up to 80 watts of power, and comes with 0.2ohm MOCC coil heads (0.5ohm versions are available separately), with a 2ml capacity tank also featured.

UD Apro 22 Kit

Consisting of a built in tank and battery, the UD Apro 22 Kit is a small pen styled device that aims to provide big clouds and vapour. A glass tank section gives you the ability to see how much juice is left in the top filled 2ml capacity tank, which comes with two 0.2ohm MOCC coil heads- 0.5ohm MOCC coil heads are available to purchase separately. 

Rather interestingly, the UD Apro 22 Kit features a firing button at the base of the battery, much like one that you would find on a mechanical mod. Venting holes are also located around the switch, meaning that in the unlikely event that things do go wrong with the battery the gases would vent away from your face. Additional safety features are also built into the kit, such as a ten second cut off, low battery voltage protection, low resistance protection and short circuit protection. 

Size wise, the UD Apro 22 Kit is ideal for carrying around in your pocket thanks to the pen styled form factor. It's a nice device to hold in hand, and the firing button is easy to reach and responsive. It is fairly lightweight as well, making it an easy device to carry around with you.

Using the UD Apro 22 Kit

Being an all in one device, the UD Apro 22 Kit has been designed to be as easy to use as possible. Five clicks of the power button will turn the device on and off, with the LED lights flashing accordingly to let you know. To start off, you need to install one of the two 0.2ohm MOCC coil heads, which is done by unscrewing the tank section, sliding the coil in through the base and replacing the tank section. Swapping coils is easy too, as you simply slide them in and out after unscrewing the tank section.

Filling the tank is done by sliding open the top part of the tank section, which reveals a filling port. With a new coil, you need to fill the tank up with E-Liquid and let it stand for 10 minutes before vaping. Refilling is quick and easy with this system, and the top part of the tank stays shut securely so that you don't need to worry about it sliding open and juice leaking out.

Battery capacity is a rather healthy 2500 mAh, and it is capable of firing at up to 80W which is huge for a device like this! When fully charged, the device will output 80W with a 0.2ohm MOCC coil head, and this will steadily decrease over time with usage. The draw is very airy, providing a huge amount of vapour, and I found the flavour to be pretty good too which surprised me!

An LED indicator is found on the battery, glowing green when the battery is at full capacity, amber at mid capacity and red at low capacity. The strength of your vape will also decrease in line with this, and I've found that as soon as it shows red it is best to pop it on charge. The UD Apro 22 Kit is recharged via USB, taking around an hour and a half to two hours to reach full charge. Battery life does decrease fairly quickly with heavy usage, meaning you may need to charge the battery more than once throughout the day.

Conclusion

Now the UD Apro 22 Kit isn't something I would recommend for people who are completely new to vaping and are looking to switch over from smoking, as I'm certain that they would find the experience to be a little too much, however it is a great low-cost option for those that want to try out something with a little more power and an airier draw, plus it makes for a great back up device for more experienced vapers.

The UD Apro 22 Kit is certainly for those that want a little more 'oomph' from their starter kits, and this is a kit that definitely packs a punch. I've been very impressed with the performance from this powerful little kit, and it provides very good flavour with plently of vapour too!
