The Kodo was sent to me for review from Yocan. You can check out the Kodo out at YocanTech.com. This is probably one of the tiniest little vape devices I’ve ever seen.
It has a standard 510 connector so you can run any type of atomizer on here, but it’s so small, that this is definitely designed for lower-wattage tanks or drippers. Anyway, let’s talk about it.
- Size: 53mm x17.5mm x 20mm
- Colors: Black, White, Blue, and Red
- 400 mAh battery
- Pre-heat feature
- Adjustable voltage
- Price: $12.99
As you can see, this is tiny! Have you ever seen a device as small as this? You can palm the entire thing in your hand. And my hands aren’t huge or anything. I mean seriously, it’s about the size of my thumb. If you want the specifics, it’s 53mm tall, 17.5mm in depth, and 20mm wide. That’s about 2 inches tall x 0.68 inches deep, and 0.78 inches wide.
Other than the size though, it’s a decent looking device. It’s a solid color, has some branding on the front, a square firing button, and three LED indicator lights.
Nothing interesting on the back.
On the bottom is a micro USB port.
On the top is the 510 connector and a hanging hole for a lanyard.
Performance and Functionality
The Kodo has three voltage levels; 2.5v, 3v, and 3.5v. You can set these once the device is already on. Once it’s on, click the firing button three times fast and it’ll cycle through each level. One LED light indicates low voltage, two lights medium, and three is high.
I bought a small refillable tank from a company called DOP AF because I needed something small enough to fit in some of the other Yocan products like the Wit and the Groote, so that’s what I used here, but since the 510 connection is on top of the Kodo, you can use any size of 510-compatible atomizer.
This tank is small, so as you can see up next to the Kodo, the Kodo is pretty small too.
Since the Kodo is so small, the tank will sit a little high, but it’s still very compact.
and you can user old-school cartomizers too, if you’ve got them.
You just need to make sure that the cartridge has 510 threading because not all of them do. The one I’m using comes from Mimic E-cigs.
10 Second Preheat Function
This is new to me. I’ve never seen a preheat function on a regular e-liquid device. To turn this on, you click the power button twice to heat your material for 10 seconds and then it turns off automatically.
I’ve tested this using my normal e-liquid atomizers and it doesn’t really seem all that useful in that scenario, so I think this is really catered more towards vaping something like concentrates, or medicinal-type e-liquids like what you’d find a dispensary.
But I actually think that’s a pretty cool feature. My guess is this works for melting down a concentrate that’s a little thick, such as something blended with a wax liquidizer, that way it wicks well when you’re actually ready to hit it.
The battery inside the Kodo is an internal non-removable 400mAh battery. It’s a small battery, but I’d say it’s actually pretty big considering the size of the device that it’s in. You should be able to get a full day of use of it before you need to charge it.
You charge the device using the included micro USB cable and since it’s so small, it charges fast in only 30 minutes. And you can vape while it’s charging so that’s always nice.
- Short circuit protection
- Low voltage protection
- 15-second cutoff
It’s a fairly basic device, but it has some really cool features; it’s tiny, it has a big battery for its size, it has adjustable voltage, and it has a preheat function such as for vaping something like a CBD cartridge.
So if that’s something you’re interested in, check out the Kodo on YocanTech.com for details.
