Vapers don’t need gimmicks; there is no electronic value in a unique design or a novel shape. All they want is power, performance, and reliability at a good price. SMOK provides that over and over with their many devices, including this one: the SMOK KOOPOR Mini 2.
This is the electronic power house behind any one of SMOK’s excellent tanks including the Helmet, their TFV4, and others. With this mod on your side, you have the power to build brilliant clouds of vapor.
The KOOPOR, only Better
SMOK’s high-powered device uses removable batteries, offers two settings, and comes in 4 colors. A bright screen shows you all the details about resistance and output. A USB port is on-board for recharging or upgrading. This is flexibility at its most modern and youthful.
The USB port on a device signifies one or both of two functions. It can be there to recharge the battery or it could be for upgrading firmware. Most companies with removable batteries recommend doing so rather than recharging cells internally, but you have the choice with this SMOK KOOPOR Mini 2. Upgrade firmware (chipset controls) as well, watching SMOK’s website for signs that new features are available to download.
The single driver system, according to manufacturers, limits your voltage system to either boosting or bucking voltage. With the Dual Driver System (DDS), the KOOPOR is capable of doing both, so voltage is constantly monitored and regulated. This is an attentive PCB, concerned for the regularity of performance and also your safety.
You thought ESP meant something else? At SMOK, they’re talking about resistance monitoring. Their high-frequency system (HFDMR) is able to detect the resistance of your atomizer coil constantly; I’m talking about micro-seconds here. That means every second, their HFDMR checks resistance thousands of times to ensure precise heat control. Resistance is adjusted at the same time to remain uniform as you puff.
Temp Control and Variable Watt Settings
The KOOPOR Mini 2 is an 80W device which can be run with atomizers containing Kanthal wire or TC wire. Select a setting and coil. You can adjust these values by pressing plus and minus buttons lined-up side-by-side below the screen and above the USB port.
A large power button above the screen lets you choose modes. Vary wattage from 1W all the way up and temp between 200F and 600F. In the latter setting, you can build or install coils as low as 0.06 ohms. That is atomizer agility at its finest.
These mods look big until you see a picture of someone holding one and then you realize how tiny they are. That does not stop SMOK from installing a relatively large screen measuring just under one inch. That OLED display is set a little way back from the exterior, and for good reason.
Although this might cast a bit of shadow, it stops the screen from coming into direct contact with the floor if you drop the mod. The frame is durable, but screens are often fragile.
Buy a Kit
Several companies supply the KOOPOR Mini 2 by SMOK as part of a starter set. It will be packaged with a sub ohm atomizer tank such as the Helmet, also by SMOK; a 2-ml RBA with an insulated mouthpiece and metal reinforcement around the glass. The TFV4 is more flexible; pre-built Nickel 200 coils are available.
