Video Transcript: Vaporesso Tarot ~ 200w Box Mod by GrimmGreen
Alright. Hey, everybody. It's GrimmGreen from grimmgreen.com back here today. Just changing things up one more time. It was a couple of my subscribers in the comment section of one of my videos that said, Hey, Grimm, why don't you try doing your videos standing up? That might be cool. And I thought, Why? And then I thought, Well, that could actually be cool. I sit at my desk on my fat ass all day long, little standing might do me some good, but it's not about that. What we're talking about today is this little guy right here, this is the Vaporesso Tarot 200w Dual 18650 Box mod. It's pretty cool. It's got one little quirk in it that annoys the crap out of me; but in order to get to know this device just a little bit better, what we're gonna do is go up close, as we always do. Quick shorty up a close time.
Alright. Yeah. What we have here is the Vaporesso Tarot 200w Box mod. And in my opinion, it's not a bad looking little box mod. They come in white and black, but they both come with this sort of shiny carbon fiber look to them with sort of orange looking accents. I think this is a pretty neat-looking little mod. It's very comfortable in the hand. It looks cool. Overall, the fit and finish on this device is actually really nice.
Spring loaded 510 pin there, power button here, adjustment up-down buttons here, and then a mode button here. And you use this mode button, hold it, hold it, hold it, nickel mode, right there. Hold it, hold it, hold it, and you're in the 316 stainless steel temp control mode. Hold it some more, and you'll eventually get back to wattage.
Now, the Vaporesso Tarot 200w Box mod only does temperature control for nickel and stainless steel. It completely skips over titanium. If you're a die hard titanium temperature control user, unfortunately, you will not be able to run titanium and temp control mode on the Vaporesso Tarot.
Down on the bottom, above the vent holes, is a little thumb tab for you to, pop open the back. The door is actually held on by four magnets. There's one, two, three, four; two rectangular ones and two round ones. It goes on and off relatively easy. There's no play, up, down, side to side. If you wanna take this door off, you have to actually get in there and pop it off. The internals are really clean. And it's weird because there's no ribbon in here to pop your batteries out. So you kinda have to do one of these numbers where you get in there with your fingers to get your batteries out, which isn't always ideal, but it does get the job done. The sled is pretty clearly marked, positive, negative, positive, negative. There you go. And these, up here, are obviously spring loaded. So you just follow the directions, negative goes up on this side, positive goes up on this side, and you'll see your Vaporesso Tarot come to life. It defaults right into wattage mode.
Yeah. There's not much else to see up close here and personal. Let's get back out to normal view and let's vape this.
Overall, I really do like the fit and finish of the Tarot. I like the white on black. I like the contrast. I think it's just a cool looking mod. It's a dual 18650. It says it goes up to 200 watts, but I have a feeling that's a little bit of a stretch. Again, I'm not, so I don't have graphs and charts and tools to actually measure whether this is doing a real 200 watts or not. I've never really had it above 90 watts. I've mostly been using it with tanks, the occasional RDA, but I have no need to go up to 200 watts, so I don't know for sure if this does a really, truly accurate 200 watts.
The interface on the menu is really easy to use. It does temperature control for nickel. It does temperature control for stainless steel. But for some reason, it doesn't do temperature control for titanium, which whatever, that doesn't matter to me. I personally don't use a lot of titanium. This is a stainless steel coil head in here, and I'm running it on wattage mode. This is that Goodger tank, and the vape on it, 50 watts.58 ohms. It's really good.
Now, the Vaporesso Tarot 200w does not have any USB connections on it, which means the firmware on it is never going to be upgradable. As it stands, there's one weird little annoying quirky thing that it does, is randomly, and without warning, it'll just say, Check atomizer, for no reason. I've tried it with dozens of different tanks, dozens of different RDAs. No matter what coil material I'm using, no matter what resistance the coil is, if it's a Clapton, or a stainless steel, or a Kanthal, or a round wire, anarchist wire, just randomly, and without warning, you will go to press the button to take a vape.
That time, it worked, but sometimes it just says, Check atomizer. I have no idea what that is. It's just a glitch in the software or a glitch in the hardware system. And it's not annoying at first. You go, Oh. That was weird. And then you just keep vaping. And then the second time it happens, you go, Oh. That was weird. And then you just keep on vaping but like the 800th time that that happens, you want to take this little Tarot, and you want to throw it across the room. It's one of those things that just... It becomes irritating over time. At first, doesn't really matter. And it still, occasionally, randomly, and without warning, will give me a Check atomizer warning and won't let me fire the mod.
Other than that slight little quirk that it has, overall, I do really like it. Are you gonna need your vape budget hands for this? Not really. You can find the Vaporesso Tarot around the interwebs. I found it on myvaporstore.com for about 50 bucks. Now, 50 bucks, Dual 18650, temperature control minus titanium for a cool... I think, it's a cool-looking box. It's a cool-feeling box.
Now, if we're playing the aliens game, where aliens come down, they descend from space and steal all of my vape gear like dicks, is the Vaporesso Tarot 200w something I would seek out and buy? Maybe. It might not be the first thing that I seek out and buy, but it's a good price, 50 bucks. It's a cool design. It does what I want it to do. It's got one little weird quirk that's keeping me from truly, truly loving it. But overall, it's a good device. It's a solid $50 Dual 18650 200w Box mod.
And now I'm just rambling. But thank you so much for watching everybody. That's what I got for today. I'll have links down in the description as always. If you're interested in checking it out. But yeah, that's what I got.
Thank you so much for watching everybody. And as always... Yeah, let's keep on vaping.
