Vapouriz Fuse Sub Ohm Kit Review
As far as appearances go, this device looked really nice and feels good in-hand.
The Vapouriz Fuse Sub Ohm Kit is a kit from Vapouriz that offers a sub-ohm experience at a pretty affordable price.
But does it pack in enough power to make it worth it?
We decided to purchase one to give it a try – and naturally, we were pretty pumped when we got it. Here’s what we thought of the Vapouriz Fuse Sub Ohm Kit.
Just to add, we have reviewed other products from this brand, so if there’s a different product review from Vapouriz that you’re after, use our on-site search function to look for it.
Pros and Cons
- The device works extremely well
- Simple to use
- Sub-ohm capable right out of the box
- Produces massive clouds
- Perfect for people who want big clouds in an inexpensive price range
- It only shipped with one coil
- It was a bit finicky to get filled until we got the hang of it
- The box had a little bit of misleading information printed on it (they seemed like mistakes though… not intentional falsehoods)
What’s in the starter kit?
The starter kit contains a very nicely laid-out instruction manual, a micro-USB charging lead (the package, however, labeled this as a mini-USB… which seems to have been a mistake!), the device itself, which consists of a battery, an integrated tank area toward the top, complete with a Pyrex glass tank… a drip-tip, and a coil.[print_responsive_slider_plus_lightbox id=”56″]
This kit is a bit unique in that the tank and the device are really all integrated into one unit instead of being separated into two.
The package was nice and glossy. There was some really nice graphic artwork on it, which we loved. We noticed right away that the box had a bit of a warning on it, which was somewhat unusual.
It said “this product contains nicotine which is a highly addictive substance.”
We found this a little bit odd, mostly because the device itself doesn’t contain any nicotine. It would be the E-liquid that would introduce nicotine into the equation – and even then, the vaper may not choose to use a nicotine E-liquid.
There was a nice spec list on the back of the box, which contained a lot of useful information. All in all, we felt that the packaging was a win.
Opening it all up, we found a nice white plastic tray that held the contents of the kit within it. They were all arranged quite nicely. The presentation was very good. Everything looked very well-made and professionally placed.
The battery, which is actually part of the all-in-one system that defines the design of the device, has a chrome plate at the bottom, an air-hole for battery cooling, a nicely designed body, a micro-USB charge port in the side, and 2,000mAh of power.
There’s a nice big rubber seal around the base of the tank. This helps to keep the Pyrex glass installed correctly, and seems to do a really good job of maintaining a quality seal. Installing the glass is super-simple. You just slide it onto the rubber seal.
Information! The coil that comes with the kit is labeled on the box as a 0.2 Ohm coil… but it is, in fact, a 0.5 Ohm coil. The kit only comes with one, which was a bit of a shame in our opinion.
Installing the coils is super-easy on this device. This process is also quite different on the Vapouriz Fuse than it is on other devices. To install the coil, you screw it into the bottom of the drip-tip, or mouthpiece – and then install the mouthpiece into the integrated tank by screwing it down.
But the drip tip itself also comes off of the top of the tank to allow for top-ended filling, which is actually really cool. Filling the tank is a simple matter, in theory… just don’t get any E-liquid down into the coil! But it turned out to be quite difficult, especially with max-vg e-liquid – which is thick and gooey. It turns out that thicker E-liquids have a tough time making it down into the lower parts of this tank, and they can tend to overflow into the center – which is certainly a bit disappointing.
Note: We found that you can really remedy this by only using one of the top-fill holes to fill up the tank. By leaving the other one open, air can escape from the tank more easily – thereby allowing you to get the tank filled with a lot less hassle!
One thing that we did notice was that the coil can be a bit difficult to uninstall… because it doesn’t always screw out with the top of the tank like it’s supposed to. Sometimes, we have to remove the glass and unscrew it by hand – which is a bit of a pain.
This device provides 50W of continuous power. But the wattage is not adjustable – so if you’re looking for a vape pen or a mod with variable wattage or voltage, then you may be disappointed by the Fuse Sub Ohm Kit. The capacity on the tank is 2ml, which is standard now in the UK, thanks to the TPD.
- Easy to set up
- 2ml capacity
- 50W of fixed power
- Circuit protection
- Micro USB charging
- 2000mAh lithium ion battery
- Pyrex glass tank
- 5 ohm coil
Since this is an all-in-one tank/device, you really can’t switch tanks. There is no 510 threading or anything like that which would allow you to switch components – meaning that once you buy the kit, you are pretty much stuck with what you get for as long as you choose to use it. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean that the Fuse has virtually 0% compatibility with any other device.
What did we think of this device?
We tried this pen with a thick, max VG E-liquid, which is actually what the instructions recommend. We also opened the airflow holes all the way as well.
We were pleased to find that we got a ton of vapour during the vape test. We also loved the flavour that we got, and were pleasantly surprised that our max VG E-liquid had no problem navigating through the smaller coil.
It is super-simple to operate, gives you super-smooth hits, and creates a massive amount of vapour – which were all upsides for us.
We like the looks of this device. We also like how it feels in-hand. It was a bit misleading that the box stated that you get a 0.2 ohm coil when, in fact, you get a 0.5 ohm coil, but these types of mistakes or mix-ups are easy to make, in all honesty.
It was a bit finicky to fill – but once we got the hang of it, it wasn’t nearly as bad as we thought it was going to be.
All in all, this was a solid kit. It would be a perfect option for a beginner vaper, or for an experienced vaper who was looking for something lightweight and inexpensive – yet powerful and compact.
Appearance and Feel
As far as appearances go, this device looked really nice. There is an option for a stainless steel device as well – but ours was black, and we really enjoyed giving it a try.
As far as the feel goes, it feels good in-hand. It’s a good length (a bit long – but not too long), a good weight, and seems to be comfortable to vape with as far as we’re concerned.
There is a variable airflow controller located directly beneath the integrated tank. You can adjust it by simply turning the control ring. It seems to work pretty well, really. We were impressed with it!
The device is made mostly from steel and Pyrex glass. It seems quite sturdy, really. We were impressed on this end.
- Ease of Use
Despite being a sub-ohm vape pen, we felt that learning how to use it was super simple. It’s pretty much a plug and play device, for all intents and purposes.
The best thing about this vape pen is that it performs very, very well… despite the fact that it’s a super simple device to operate.
We do wish that the device had come with more than one coil. We were also a bit surprised to find information on the box that wasn’t true!

Additional recommended products from this company
You can buy additional coils for a pretty reasonable price from the Vapouriz official website… and we strongly recommend that you do so, as this device only comes with one and will end up requiring you to switch it out sooner rather than later.
