Yes, it’s unusual for vapers to refer to vaping devices as pieces of art, but sometimes a kit comes out that takes your breath away. I have plenty of friends in the vape community who have a vast collection of beater mods as well as mods that they leave out on shelves because they just look that good. I want to be clear, though, that a vaping device is absolutely nothing without function at the forefront. A mod and tank combo can look great and be crap to vape with. However, with a kit like the Eleaf Lexicon Kit with the ELLO Duro Tank, you get the best of both worlds: a showpiece of a device and some darn good performance.
1. The Design of the Eleaf Lexicon Kit: A Futuristic, Modern Blend of an LED Light Show and Functionality
Even though the Eleaf Lexicon Kit is from 2018, I don’t think it should be left in 2018. This design is spacey like it was meant for a sci-fi fanatic. This is a very specific look, so you’ll either love it or hate it. Nonetheless, Eleaf created a stylized kit with bevelled edges that look like they were sliced on the diagonal. The main aesthetic, though, is the LED panelling along the top edges of the mod and the three on the main face. LED lights for design can go bad if it’s done wrong. But I don’t think they overdid this with the Eleaf Lexicon. These truly are integrated well and add to the spaceship vibe.
The other elements on this kit are geared toward the device function. On the side there is an oversized, clicky fire button with some carved detailing that makes for a better grip. The front face of the mod has a 1.3-inch display screen in the right corner. Toward the bottom are two arrow-shaped adjustment buttons and a micro-USB port. The top has a stainless steel, spring-loaded centered 510 connection.
2. The ELLO Duro Tank Is Gorgeous—But Still a Powerful, Flavor and Cloud Beast
To add to the aesthetic of this kit, the Eleaf ELLO Duro sits atop the mod, color-coordinated down to the acrylic swirled bubble glass and matching acrylic wide bore drip tip. Though you may recognize the ELLO Duro Tank from the Eleaf iJust 3 80W Kit, the inclusion of colorful glass and drip tips change the whole look of the ELLO. If you aren’t a fan of flashy, this is not the kit for you. The bubble glass boasts a 6.5ml e-liquid capacity, while the stainless steel chassis of the tank has a dual adjustable bottom airflow system that has some very smooth movement to it. The top filling system is a sliding one; easy to open, but stays closed when you need it to.
The flavor and cloud production from the ELLO Duro is comparable to tanks such as the SMOK Prince and their newer SMOK TFV8 Baby V2. The coils included are both a kanthal, mesh style, and they are some very good performers.
3. The Vaping Modes and Performance
The Eleaf Lexicon Kit includes a full TC Suite, TCR capability, Standard Power Mode, and Memory slots for TC/TCR. I’ve used my Eleaf Lexicon for five months and have experimented with everything it has to offer. Although the TC is a bit less than perfect, it’s decent and should please most TC vapers. Standard Power Mode shines easily with the ELLO Duro Tank’s capabilities and the flavor of the included HW coils. Although I love the look of the mod by itself, the whole package makes a great value.
The LED lights are an added bonus (if you’re into them) incorporated in such a way that it just looks like a part of the device without being too gaudy. If you prefer to save battery—as any LED extras will always drain the power faster)—you can switch them off entirely via the menu.
