The Freemax Maxus 200W mod kit is paired with the M Pro 2 tank and really is one of the best performing mod kits available in the market today. The Maxus 200W mod kit is available in two different styles, a Resin Edition and a Metal Edition. Both are virtually identical apart from the overall color finish of the two designs, a slight difference between the dimensions of the M Pro 2 tank and the filling method. The Resin edition comes in 6 vibrant colors, while the Metal edition comes in 4 subdued finishes.

Having previously reviewed the Maxus 50W mod kit late last year, we were really impressed with the design, quality and performance. This Maxus 200W mod kit is the big brother of the Maxus 50W and Maxus 100W mods. If the quality and performance follows in the same vein then it’s bound to be as successful as its smaller brothers.

It’s powered by dual 18650 external batteries providing a maximum 200W of power. In addition to this, it has the technology to run from a single 18650 battery providing 80W of power. If this wasn’t enough, the Maxus 200W mod uses Smart Load technology. This allows the battery (s) to be inserted either way round and the mod will work out the correct polarity.

The FM chip technology – Maxus 1.0 provides the control, functionality and a host of safety features, including modes for Power (W), Temperature Control (TC), Bypass and Variable Power Curve (VPC).

Coupled with the Maxus 200W mod, the M Pro 2 is an upgraded version of the successful M Pro tank. Coils are compatible with either tank and it has to be said the Freemax coils really are in a class of their own.

I would like to thank the guys at Freemax for sending me the Maxus 200W Mod Metal Edition Kit with the M Pro 2 Metal Edition Tank. As always this review is completely unbiased and is my honest opinion on the Maxus 200W mod Kit.  If this post contains an affiliate link I may receive a small commission on any purchase made at no extra cost to you.

In addition to the Maxus 200W mod kit, Freemax kindly sent me the M Pro 2 RBA Coil which I will also detail in its own section within this review.

Freemax Maxus 200W Mod Design and Appearance


The Maxus 200W mod is a 5W – 200W Variable Wattage and Temperature Controlled mod measuring 90.5mm tall x 52.5mm wide x 28.6mm deep. It’s constructed out of zinc alloy and weighs in at 190g.

Powered by dual external 18650 batteries it can deliver up to 200W maximum. The Maxus 200W mod incorporates Smart Load (load at will) technology which means the batteries can be inserted in any orientation as the mod will detect and adjust accordingly to operate correctly.

Equally the Maxus 200W mod can be powered by a single 18650 battery inserted into the left hand slot of the battery compartment. This will power the device and allow a maximum operating wattage of 80W.

The control of the Maxus 200W mod is achieved by the FM chipset Maxus 1.0 offering a fast ramp-up time, multiple safety parameters and multiple output modes including Smart Coil Detection, as identified below:

Safety Parameters

  • Low Resistance Protection <0.1 ohm
  • 10 Second Timeout Protection/5-15s
  • Open Circuit Protection/No Atomizer
  • Short Circuit Protection
  • High Temperature Protection
  • Low Voltage Protection
  • Automatic Coil Detection
  • Same/New Coil Selection

Output Modes

  • Power (Watts)
  • Variable Power Curve
  • Bypass
  • Temperature Control TI/NI/SS/TCR1,2,3

The model I received from Freemax was the Gunmetal colored Maxus 200W mod metal edition. The entire mod is finished in a powdered coating with the words ”Maxus 200W” on one side and “FreeMax” on the other in discreet white writing. Both side panels have large diamond shapes lines running diagonally through the panels.

On the side edge of the mod is the 1.1 inch single color OLED rectangular screen located in-between the larger square fire button and the two smaller square +/- control buttons. Below the – control button is the Type-C USB charging port, specified as 5V/2A fast charge.

Maxus 200W Mod Bottom View
Maxus 200W Mod 510 Connector

The 510 connector positioned centrally between the side panels but laid towards the back of the mod is very slightly raised from the main housing. The center pin is a gold plated spring loaded floating pin between the double cross cut airflow groves on the 510 plate.

On the base of the Maxus 200W mod are 5 small holes to cater for any possible battery venting issues. A small indented arrow highlights which side panel is removable to gain access to the dual slot battery compartment. There is a small indented line just by the arrow where a finger nail can be used to flip the side panel.

The removable side panel has one large magnet at the top of the panel and a smaller thinner magnet at the bottom of the panel. These do a very good job of ensuring the side panel is securely held in place. This side panel can be fitted upside down but the orientation of the magnets does mean it won’t be as secure.

Inside the battery compartment is a long ribbon cable in the center of the two battery slots which facilitates the removal of the dual batteries. As previously mentioned, there are no + or – battery orientations as the batteries can be inserted either was round. Smart Load technology takes care of configuring the batteries as required.

Maxus 200W Mod Battery Compartment

Maxus 200W Mod With Batteries

The battery bay slots are numbered 1 and 2. If a single battery is being used it goes in the left hand battery bay numbered 1. Inserting the battery into slot 2 will have no effect, the mod will NOT power up.

Accessing the menu structure is achieved by using the fire button and the +/- buttons. These menus are detailed under the Functionality section in this review.

Two versions of the Maxus 200W mod are available, the Resin Edition and the Metal Edition. The resin edition comes in 6 vibrant colors…Red-Green, Red-Blue, Blue-Yellow, Black-Orange, Yellow-Black and Orange-Green. The Metal edition comes in 4 subtle colors…Marble Black, Gunmetal, Silver and Stabwood Rainbow.

The build quality of the Maxus 200W mod feels very solid and really well built. The fire button and +/- buttons have a very positive feel to them with no button rattle whatsoever. The removable battery panel feels very secure, but when in use there is a very slight up and down movement. This was not a problem for me but I do know some people may find this annoying.

The display is not the greatest I’ve seen and only uses a single color (white). There are no brightness or color adjustments but the display is sharp and clearly visible.

M Pro 2 Tank Design and Appearance

Freemax M Pro 2 Tank

Maxus M Pro 2 Tank Top Fill Port

The M Pro 2 Metal Edition tank is 28.2mm wide by 59.35mm tall including the 510 thread and 810 drip tip. Weighing in at 77.8g, it has an e-liquid capacity of 5ml (2ml TPD). The 5ml version has a bubble Pyrex glass, while the 2ml version uses a straight glass.

The top fill design is child-proof, incorporating a spring loaded pull to open and slide backwards filling system. When open, the fill port is pretty decent in size to allow for a large tip e-liquid bottle to be used.

While the top cap is open, looking down from the top of the 810 drip tip, you will see a small circular pin hole adjacent to the filling port. This acts as an air vent to help with e-liquid filling. When the top cap is closed, the pin hole is sealed by the sliding top cap.

Its counterpart, the M Pro 2 Resin Edition tank, is 30mm wide by 59.85 tall including the 510 thread and 810 drip tip. The top fill design differs in operation from the metal edition in that it simply slides back instead of lifting up first. 3 steel ball bearings are incorporated into the top cap to increase friction. Its weight is reduced to 69g.

Both these tanks definitely won’t fall into the stealth category, they are monsters.

The colors of the M Pro 2 tanks match the Maxus 200W mod, 6 colors for the Resin Edition and 4 colors for the Metal Edition.

Coloring on the Metal Edition tank encompasses the top cap and airflow control ring, with the 810 drip tip being black with a wisp of white. The Resin Edition top cap and airflow control ring are Stainless Steel but with colored panel inlays and colored drip tips.

M Pro 2 Tank Sections

Airflow is achieved by a variable dual slot fully adjustable air flow control ring at the bottom of the tank. One small raised pin to the left of one of the airflow slots latches against the airflow control ring limiting the adjustment to a quarter turn from fully open to fully closed.

The words “Freemax” are printed on the side of the top cap just above a small red indent, indicating the position where you lift and slide the top cap backwards to gain access to the fill port. The top cap is spring loaded so once the top cap is slid back to close it will spring back down shut.

Removing the 810 wide bore drip tip is carried out by simply grasping the top and gently pulling away from the tank body. 2 small O-Rings on the 810 drip tip hold it securely in place.

Access to the coil is carried out by unscrewing the top cap/filling section and the airflow/510 bottom section. The glass is secured by friction on the 2 corresponding O-Rings of the two sections.

M Pro 2 Coils

The top cap/filling section has a male threaded center section that screws directly into the female thread on the chimney of the coil, which maintains the vacuum around the 2ml/5ml glass when the two are screwed together.

Two coils are supplied with the Maxus 200W mod kit, a 0.2 ohm M2 mesh coil and a 0.15 ohm M1 mesh coil. There two coils are beasts! Once fitted, there is not much room left for e-liquid, especially when using the 2ml straight glass. Strangely enough, the 2ml glass provided in the kit is semi opaque; it has a slight frosted appearance. The 5ml bubble glass as I understand is clear.

Freemax Maxus 200W Mod Functionality


The Maxus 200W mod is fully loaded with features which include Power (wattage) mode, Temperature control modes which include SS, NI200, TI and TCR1/2/3. There are also modes for Variable Power Curve (VPC) and Bypass.

Functionality of the control buttons consists of a square fire button and two smaller square up/down (+/-) buttons. There is no dedicated menu button, menu access is carried out using the fire button and the +/- buttons.

It’s worth having a read of the manual to familiarize yourself with the structure of the menus. The manual is pretty good as it shows and explains all of the available options. The menu structure is straight forward and easy to follow but I would recommend for the first time having a play with the different menu’s before you fit the tank.

Turning the Maxus 200W mod on and off is carried out by pressing the fire button 5 times in quick succession. This will bring up the main screen display that shows the mode you are in, displaying the coil resistance, volts, puff counter, wattage or temperature and battery status of the individual batteries.

Locking and unlocking the device is carried out by pressing the +/- buttons simultaneously for 1 second.

When in TC mode, pressing the + button and fire button together will highlight the wattage on the display and allow you to adjust the wattage over its entire range of 5W to 200W.

Maxus 200W Mode Display

To get into the top level menu structure, press the fire button 3 times in quick succession. This will display the first level menu settings as follows:

  • Mode
  • Set
  • Info
  • Exit

Use the +/- buttons to scroll through each of the 4 settings. As you scroll through each one, the one that can be selected will be highlighted with a white background. Pressing the fire button on the selected menu will take you to that particular menu. To leave the menu, simply press and hold the fire button. This will take you back to the main display screen.

Mode Menu

With the Mode menu highlighted (white background), press the fire button. This will bring up the next level of available modes of operation.

  • Power: (standard Wattage mode, 5W-200W)
  • VPC: (Variable Power Curve. Adjustable over 10 increments)
  • Bypass (power mode derived from the battery voltage
  • TC TI (Titanium)
  • TC SS (Stainless Steel)
  • TC NI (Nickel)
  • TCR 1 2 3 (Temperature Coefficient Resistance)

Use the +/- buttons to scroll through each of the 9 settings. As you scroll through each one, the one that can be selected will be highlighted with a little arrow to the left of the mode of operation. Pressing the fire button on the selected menu will take you to that particular menu and put the Maxus 200W mod in that mode of operation.

Setting the VPC mode is very straight-forward, simply highlight that option and press the fire button. With P1 highlighted, use the +/- buttons to increase or decrease the wattage you want for the first one second of the firing cycle. Once you’ve set the wattage you want, press the fire button to take you to the next level (P2).

Repeat the procedure for each level until you’ve set the power curve for all the P1-P10 settings. Press and hold the fire button to save your settings. This power curve you’ve set will be displayed in graphical format at the top of the display. This power curve will remain at the parameters you’ve specified until you go back into the VPC mode and change those particular settings.

Set Menu

Maxus 200W Mod Set Menu Display

Going back to the first level menu, scroll down to highlight the Set menu and press the fire button. This will take you into the next level of adjustable parameters as outlined below:

  • Timeout (10 seconds, adjustable from 5-15 seconds)
  • Coil (lock or unlock resistance in TC mode)
  • Coil Test (Automatic coil detection on or off)
  • Puff (reset the puff counter)
  • Time (records your overall vaping time)
  • 0C/0F (select Centigrade or Fahrenheit)
  • Reset
  • Exit

Info Menu

Going back to the first level menu, scroll down to highlight the Info menu and press the fire button. This will take you into the next level of information regarding the status of the Maxus 200W mod as outlined below:

  • Battery (identifies the real time voltage of the batteries)
  • Version (current version of the software)
  • Temperature (temperature of the control board in 0C and 0F
  • Exit

Unfortunately, the user manual doesn’t really tell you much about the different setting and what they do. To give a little insight to what the different options mean, we’ve included a brief description below:

Power Mode:

Standard wattage mode. The Maxus 200W mod will operate between 5W all the way up to 200W in 1W increments. Holding the + or – button will scroll through the increments faster. There is no round robin when scrolling, once you reach the maximum you will have to press the – button to go back down. If you’re using 1 battery to power the mod then the variable wattage range is 5W up to 80W.

Variable Temperature Control (TC):

Select either Stainless Steel 316L (SS), Titanium (Ti), Nickel 200 (Ni) or Temperature Coefficient  Resistance (TCR). The 3 pre-set wires have fixed pre-programmed values, whereas TCR allows you to set the TCR value when using other temperature heating wires. The variable range for TCR is 0010 to 999.

Variable Power Curve (VPC):

This function will allow you to specify different wattages that can be applied to your coil over a vape cycle to fully customize your vaping experience. There are 10 variable wattage settings, each adjustable from 5W to 200W with each setting being fixed for a 1 second time period. If you want to further understand how VPC works, take a look at our Variable Power Curve (VPC) Guide.

Bypass Mode (BP):

Provides a direct output voltage from the battery, simulating the feel and style of a Mech mod.

Coil Test:

When this is set to ON, the mod will detect the type of coil fitted and automatically select the desired wattage. If you’re fitting a TC coil, it will automatically suggest TC mode. Equally if you’re using a Kanthal coil, it will suggest Power mode.

M Pro 2 Tank Performance


Both of the following coil types, the M1 and the M2 are military grade SS904L Mesh and Tea Fiber Cotton using COILTECH 4.0 technology and can be used in Wattage mode or Temperature Control mode. There are also other coil options available, these being the M3 and the M4. All coils are interchangeable between the M Pro and the M Pro 2 tanks.

M2 Dual Mesh Coil 0.2 ohm (pre-installed)

Freemax specify the wattage range is between 60-90W. Best at 80W.

M2 Coil 0.2 Ohm

The M2 coil is one of the biggest coils I’ve seen and the wicking ports are huge. Definitely won’t be any issues with wicking!

After priming and filling with my Mango Ice (70VG/30PG ratio) and leaving to stand for 15 mins, I set the wattage to a pretty low 30W to allow the coil to slowly bed in. After a few draws, I increased the wattage in increments of 5W to the minimum recommended 60W.

Flavor and vapor production really kicked in producing a pure crisp taste. The vapor was pretty cool with the airflow wide open and the draw was very airy. Reducing the airflow to half way increased the draw restriction to a nice RDL style vape. Irrespective of airflow, the intake when drawing is pretty noisy.

Increasing the wattage to 80W produced incredible flavor highlighting every taste possible. The amount of vapor produced really was insane; it was like a volcanic eruption in the front room.

Decreasing the wattage back down to a manageable 60W was perfect for me in terms of flavor and the ability to see inches in front of my eyes. Even though I used this coil for approx. 12 tank fills before I moved on to the M1 coil, I had no leaks or dry burns and no loss of flavor or vapor before switching to the other coil.

M1 0.15ohm Single Mesh Coil

Freemax specify the wattage range is between 40-70W. Best at 65W

M1 Coil for M Pro 2 Tank

I used the same juice to get a direct comparison with the M2 0.2ohm coil. After setting the wattage to initially 20W, I left the airflow to half open; the draw with this coil was pretty much on par with the M2 coil.

The flavor and vapor production at this wattage was limited but to be expected. Increasing the wattage to 25W then to 30W did make a noticeable difference and both flavor and vapor started to come through.

Taking the wattage to its minimum of 40W was improving the flavor highlighting the crispness of the Mango. Incrementing the wattage up to 70W just improved the flavor and vapor no end. Airflow at half open suited my vaping style giving enough restriction without it becoming warm.

Reducing the wattage back down to 50W seemed to be my sweet spot and I would be happy vaping at this level all day long. The flavor was impressive but not as intense as I found from the M2 0.2ohm dual mesh coil, but still really enjoyable.

Having been vaping on this coil for over 2 weeks now, I recon I’ve got through 120ml of e liquid without any dry hits or decrease in flavor.

Coil Summary

I’ve come to know and expect from Freemax that the performance from their tanks and coils are one of the best around in terms of flavor and vapor, I really was NOT disappointed. This tank is very impressive and both the M1 and M2 coils really are some of the best coils I’ve tried.

Cycling different flavors through this tank really did highlight what I had been missing from some of my other tanks I use in daily rotation. The only issue I found was having to constantly open the widow so I could watch the television!

This tank with these coils DOES guzzle e-liquid therefore I really would recommend getting an increased bubble glass for the tank to negate the need for filling up with juice every 10 minutes.

Freemax M Pro 2 RBA Coil


For me, the ability to re-build using an RBA deck as a replacement for stock coils in the tank really is the icing on the cake. For whatever reason, be it the cost of stock coils, not being able to purchase coils for the tank further down the line or just wanting to build your own coils, having an RBA coil that fits the tank is something that will keep the tank working for many many years.

To my delight, Freemax have developed the RBA coil that fits in the M Pro and M Pro 2 tanks and even better, they sent me one to review.

RBA Coil for the M Pro 2 Tank

The RBA coil is a Single or Dual coil post less build deck design with Honeycomb Turbo Air Hole. It comes in 2 parts, the build deck and the screw in chimney cap which then screws into the M Pro 2 tank replacing the stock coil.

RBA Kit Spec

  • Dimensions: 19.8mm x 30.4mm
  • Weight: 13.45g
  • Coil Resistance: 0.35 ohm supplied
  • Post less Deck: Single or Dual coil builds
  • Honeycomb Turbo Air Hole

Pack Contents

  • Freemax M Prp RBA module
  • 2 x Extra screws
  • 2 x 0.35 Ohm Ni80 coils
  • Cotton sachet
  • 2 x O’Rings
  • Screwdriver
  • User manual

RBA Coil Build

Unscrew the RBA coil from the top cap to gain access to the build deck. Screw the build deck base section into the AFC of the M Pro 2 tank.

Take the two supplied 0.35 ohm coils, trim the lead legs of the coils to approx. 6mm and secure the coils into the post less deck using the 4 screws located in the sides of the build deck. The post holes are not lined up symmetrically so inserting the coils into the deck can be a bit fiddly and tricky. Take care not to twist the coil(s) out of shape.

Dry burn the coils by pulsing the mod to ensure an even glow across the two coils. If you notice any hotspots on the coils, gently rake the surface of the coils till the hotspots have been eliminated.

Cut two thin strips of wick and pass these through the internal diameter of each coil. Gently tuck each wick end into the juice wells and trim off any excess wick. Don’t tuck the wick too tightly into the juice well as this will reduce the ability of the e-liquid reaching the coil (s).

For the wicking method I used, I left as much wick as I could around the coils to help keep the coils saturated.

Screw the chimney top cap onto the RBA coil deck, drip a few drops of e-liquid onto the wick and assemble the RBA coil into the M Pro 2 tank.

RBA Coil Performance

The sweet spot for the dual coil build I did was around 45W with the airflow ¾ open.

The flavor and vapor really was spot on at this wattage. Apart from the fiddly fitting of the coils, this has to be one of the best performing RBA coils I’ve used.

Overall, the flavor and vapor is pretty close to the stock coil performance so definitely worth mastering your build to maximize the performance.

Freemax Maxus 200W Mod Battery Performance


The Freemax Maxus 200W mod can be powered by a single 18650 battery for 80W of power or dual 18650 batteries for the full power range of 200W. When using dual batteries, always ensure you only use ‘Matched Pairs’. Further understanding on married/matched batteries and why you should only use paired batteries can be found in our guide Pairing Your Vape Batteries.

When operating the Maxus 200W mod in single battery mode, only 1 battery icon is displayed and the Maxus will automatically limit the maximum wattage to 80W. When dual batteries are used, 2 battery icons are displayed and the full power of 200W is available.

Battery performance is always subjective and depends on the type of batteries you use, the condition of your batteries, the power you vape at and your vaping style.

Because the coils being used required high(ish) wattage and I intended to take them to their maximum, I opted to use my Samsung 20S batteries, having a CDR value of 30A with a 2000mAh capacity.

I was achieving around 8hrs vaping from a fully charged set of batteries when vaping around 60W. Using a single battery, as you can imagine, dropped my vaping time to around 4hrs.

If you want to try different capacity batteries, you can use our Battery Amp Drain Calculator to determine the most suitable batteries for your vaping requirements. If you’re unsure what batteries are available and best suited for this mod, take a look at our Best 18650 Battery Guide.

It’s worth noting that this device does have “Pass Through” so you can charge and vape at the same time. I wouldn’t recommend doing this for the sake of prolonging the life of your batteries.

How do I Fill the M Pro 2 Tank?


The M Pro 2 Metal Edition tank incorporates a child proof lift and slide top filling locking mechanism. It is very easy to fill. Simply lift up the spring loaded top cap of the tank and slide back the top of the tank.

Note: The top cap section of the tank will lift up by about 2mm and you will feel it’s under pressure because of the spring mechanism. There is a small red colored indent just under the words “Freemax”, that is the part that will slide back revealing the filling port.

Fill up with your favorite e-liquid through the fill port then simply slide the top cap section back and it will automatically spring back down shut.

The locking mechanism is really good, once secured there is no fear of it inadvertently opening.

How do I Change the Coil in the M Pro 2 Tank?


Grasp both the top cap and airflow control ring sections and turn anti-clockwise. Continue unscrewing until the two sections come apart. The 2ml/5ml glass tube will be attached to either the top cap or the 510 threaded section. This is held in place by friction onto the O-Ring and can be simply removed by applying a little pressure onto the glass and turning it to release it from the O-Ring.

Hold the airflow/510 thread section and unscrew the coil (anti-clockwise) until the coil comes away from the bottom body.

Discard the old coil and replace with your new coil. Screw the coil into the bottom section ensuring it is firmly in place but do not over-tighten.

Place the glass tube onto the O-Ring of the bottom section and attach the top cap. Screw the two sections together ensure a secure tight seal.

Do ensure that your new coil is primed and when filled, left to stand for 15 minutes so the e-liquid fully saturates the wick. See our guide on Prolonging the Life of your Coil.

How do I Charge the Freemax Maxus 200W Mod?


As with most external battery mods, there are always 2 ways which you can charge the battery(s). Either in the mod itself or using an external charger (recommended).

Because the Freemax Maxus 200W mod uses dual 18650 batteries, I really would only ever charge my batteries using an external charger. Most importantly, ALWAYS only use a matched pair of batteries i.e. the same type and capacity and keep them together throughout their life as a matched pair. Please read out guide on Should You Pair Your Vape Batteries.

The Maxus 200W mod has a front panel located Type-C USB port just below the +/- buttons. A Type-C USB charging cable comes supplied with the kit. Simply connect the cable into the USB port on the front of the Maxus 200W mod and the other end into a suitable USB power source. The specified charging circuit of the Maxus is 5V/2A.

When the Maxus 200W mod is charging, it shows the dual batteries icon (single if only one battery is fitted) with a cycling scale indicating the status of the batteries. After approximately 3 minutes the screen will reduce in brightness but still show the cycling battery icon.

When the batteries become fully charged the battery icon will remain solid for a little while and the display will go blank indicating that charging has been completed.

A Pass-Through function is included allowing you to have the Maxus 200W mod on charge and vape at the same time.

Charging time from full discharge to fully charged will take approximately 4 hours when using a 5V/2A source, quicker if you’re only using the Maxus 200W mod in single battery mode.

As with any vape device, NEVER leave your mod unattended whilst charging.

If you prefer to charge your batteries externally and I really would recommend doing this, please take a look at our guide on the Best 18650 Battery Chargers.

Freemax Maxus 200W Mod Kit Price


The Maxus 200W mod is a high powered dual battery mod kit with the incredible M Pro 2 Tank, the price of this kit really is worth the money.

Expect to pay on average around the £50/$60 mark for the Maxus 200W mod kit. Depending where you purchase this could go up or down. I’ve seen it as low as £42 but that was for a single color option only.

Newvaping.com are currently selling this kit for £49. Considering the M Pro 2 tank alone would set you back in the region of £25, the kit price is a steal.

Freemax Maxus 200W Mod Kit Summary


The Maxus 200W mod really did tick all the boxes. The design and build quality is excellent and the ease of use and operation is effortless. Has all the modes your ever likely to want. The mod is pretty heavy but considering it’s a dual battery device capable of 200W it’s not excessive. Not a stealth device by any means but it’s not designed for that intention.

Having Smart Load technology and the ability to run from either a single or dual batteries was a game changer for me. Capable of operating in Power (wattage), Temperature Control, Bypass and Variable Power Curve modes this covers the majority of vaping styles.

As for the M Pro 2 tank, I was blown away just how good it was. The flavor and vapor was incredible from both the supplied coils we tried. The tank is a monster and the coils are massive. Certainly this is a tank for the NOT fainthearted. Equally impressive too are the coils, they seem to last an age.

The 2ml tank capacity is too small as it drinks juice but you can purchase the extended 5ml glass or if you’re lucky enough to live outside the EU it will come as part of the kit.

I’ve really enjoyed using the Maxus 200W mod kit and it’s certainly on my top 10 list of all time. For flavor and vapor chasers this thing is a beast. For me, the Maxus 200W mod kit is as good if not better as the Maxus 50W kit we reviewed last year.

The Metal Edition option for me suits my requirements, being subtle in color against the Resin variants but this could just be an age thing!

Would I buy another one……….DEFINATELY. Would I be disappointed if it broke……..YES.

As a word of warning, the Maxus 200W mod kit really does suit the more experienced vaper due to the dual battery capability and the high wattage performance. It’s not a starter kit by any means.
