Vaporesso Switcher Review – Plate Swapping


Vaporesso fans will have another great reason to celebrate with the release of another potentially great kit. The Vaporesso Switcher kit comes bundled with their fabled NRG tank and fires up to a maximum power output of 220 watts with the help of two 18650 batteries (sold separately). Utilizing the same great OMNI board to make sure you get the most accurate vaping experience possible, the Vaporesso Switcher also supports swappable exterior plates for on-the-fly customization.

Considering how Vaporesso has packed every conceivable feature into this 220-watt device, it’s definitely worth a look, especially for the more vape-savvy users out there. Be sure to check the vape buyer’s guides for important information to take into consideration before making your purchase.

Manufacturing Quality

It’s not difficult to figure out where the Vaporesso Switcher derives its name. A feature not often seen in other box mods of this caliber is the mods ability to allow for swappable exterior plates. Constructed out of quality zinc alloy, the Vaporesso Switcher feels immaculately premium and solid to the touch.
Swapping out plates is far from difficult as well; simply pop open the battery door located at the bottom of the mod, slide out the old plate, then just as easily slide in the new one. Lock everything together by closing the battery door and you’re done!
The Vaporesso Switcher is also the company’s first foray into the world of designing mods with customizable LEDs. One important thing to note is that the Vaporesso Switcher comes in two versions: the LE version that supports customizable lighting options and the standard version which doesn’t come with said lighting.
I think it’s great that Vapresso has gone with this route considering that while there are definitely many vapers who like the look of LEDs on their mod, there are just as many who prefer a more non-descript look in their mods. And while you can say that other LED mods have the option to simply turn off the lights, at the end of the day you’re just paying for a feature that you’ll never use so kudos to Vaporesso for giving users a choice.

The buttons used to access or navigate the functions of the Vaporesso doesn’t deviate much from the norm. In addition to the clicky firing and up/down buttons found on most box mods, the Vaporesso Switcher also makes use of a function/menu button which allows for easy changes from one vaping mode to another. All the buttons are well-placed and easy to access regardless of how you hold the device giving you a comfortable and stable grip when vaping with the device.
The top of the Vaporesso Switcher holds the massive 510 connection which is centered, allowing for greater compatibility with larger atomizers. The NRG tank sits comfortably flush on top of the mod without any unsightly gaps. Like most tanks, the NRG is constructed out of a combination of stainless steel, glass, and Delrin, striking the perfect balance between sturdiness and overall comfort.

Flavor Quality

One of the Vaporesso Switcher’s strongest points is the bundled NRG tank that supports NRG coils. Not only do they output lots of flavor and vapor, but they’re also cross-compatible with most Smok coils (although I do find Vaporesso coils to be of slightly better quality overall). The coils bundled with the kit are the GT8 and GT4 coil heads.

The GT8 is a quad coil design meant for maximum vapor production with a low resistance of 0.15 ohms, so expect battery and e-liquid consumption to be higher in comparison to when using the GT4 which is a dual coil design rated at 0.15 ohms but with a bigger emphasis on flavor and just a tad less on vapor production.

The NRG tank has the benefit of having an extremely smooth airflow design thanks to the dual slot bottom airflow ring which is highly adjustable, letting you dial down the airflow to a restricted pull or opening it up all the way for a relaxed, open, and airy vape.

With the inclusion of Vaporesso’s signature OMNI board, their mods are now as versatile and powerful as ever. Now at version 2.6, the chip supports a slightly revised interface which makes use of on-screen buttons for even easier menu navigation.

The OMNI board also promises fast, convenient, and most importantly safe/balanced onboard charging of the dual 18650 batteries, a feature only seen in more expensive devices such as DNA or YiHi mods.

Naturally, the Vaporesso Switcher supports all the possible vaping modes such as variable wattage, temperature control, and customizable TCR settings. The pre-heat function is also standard as well as support for all the temperature control coils such as stainless steel, titanium, and nickel.

Power and temperature settings feel very accurate, so when you set the mod to vape at 50 watts, you’ll know that you’re going to be vaping at 50 watts, not 55 or 45.

While the vast plethora of options does give the Vaporesso Switcher a small learning curve when learning the ins and outs of the kit, operating the mod in standard variable wattage mode is far from difficult.

The 0.96 inch OLED display plays no small part in this thanks to its clear crisp display which effectively conveys all relevant information to you.

The on-screen graphical keys are also a big factor when it comes to the overall easier navigation of the relatively complex menu system that lets you customize practically every aspect of the mod’s functionality and interface.

All of these give you the ease and comfort of using a basic starter kit, but with all the freedom and possibilities of a more advanced device.

As far as dual 18650 devices are concerned, the Vaporesso Switcher is fairly compact. While it does have a bit of bulk, making pocket storage a tad cumbersome, the weighting of the device feels great and not heavy at all, so storing it in your bag or purse doesn’t add much extra weight.

The dual 18650 batteries guarantee that the mod will give you at least a full days worth of vaping, regardless of how much you chain vape. The OMNI board also does a great job of doing balanced charging via the micro USB port, allowing for safer recharging sessions even when an external charger isn’t available (although I will always recommend using an external charger as the safest option)Vaporesso Switcher battery slot

Overall Experience

The Vaporesso Switcher is one of the most compelling kits to be made available yet. The sheer customizability of the device which extends to both the aesthetics and functionality of the kit is unparalleled.
The NRG tank does a great job of giving you all the possible flavor and vapor that you’d need from a vape, and all of these features at half the price of DNA mods which boast roughly the same functionality.
If you want something extremely simple, check out the Kandypens Rubi and if you are looking for the best mod style kit to start with we recommend the SMOK Procolor.
