The MUSKET kit is the latest release from VOOPOO. Featuring the new GENE.TT chipset and a host of smart features, it promises to be an exciting addition to the VOOPOO range. Read on to find out our first impressions of the MUSKET and whether this will be your next all-day-vape.
The MUSKET has a unique look to it that we haven’t seen from the brand. Adopting a complete aluminium body with a smooth metallic finish. This differs from the DRAG kits that features a cushioned synthetic grip or VINCI pods with bright and colourful patterns. Although this design is simpler than other VOOPOO kits, this actually benefits the device rather than bulking up the kit with unnecessary extras. The minimalism allows the MUSKET to be more compact although the mod is noticeably taller than the average mod on the market, making the device quite top heavy depending on the atomizer that is used on the mod.
Dimensions – 145.6mm by 42mm by 24.5mm.
The shape of the kit resembles a shotgun barrel with two 18650 batteries designed to fit perfectly within. It also leaves no unnecessary space within to mod, making it as compact as possible. The ergonomic round edges also make the kit comfortable in hand. A small screen on top of the mod displays all the important vape settings including output wattage and coil resistance. A small but handy addition is the battery life for both 18650 batteries. This is useful as it allows you to know which battery needs to be charged rather than swapping out both.
The mod requires two 18650 batteries which are sold separately. The mod has a power output of up to 120W. Wattage adjustments are made by using the fire button, or automatically when in smart mode. In smart mode the MUSKET will detect the resistance of the coil in use and adjust its output power to the ideal wattage. There is also an RBA mode, the ability to manually override the wattage that the device recommends.
The MUSKET features USB-C micro charging which feels like a step backwards as most kits currently feature USB-C fast charging. However, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing as this kit uses external 18650 batteries which can be swapped out immediately for fresh ones rather than waiting for the device to charge. Using a USB-C port on the MUSKET would have inflated the price of the kit unnecessarily as the majority of vapers who use 18650 mods charge their batteries externally rather than within the kit.
When in smart mode the MUSKET is simple to operate. The wattage is automatically set to the optimum wattage and the pod tank is easy to setup. The PnP pod connects to the MUSKET through a magnetic 510 base, this is also where the airflow inlets are located. Vapers who are familiar with the VOOPOO PnP pod tank will have no worries adjusting to the MUSKET. For those unfamiliar, the pod connects to the base through a magnetic connection making it effortless to remove when needed. E-liquid can be filled through a filling port at the base of the pod while the coils use a simple push fit connection to slot into the pod easily.
This kit is suited towards experienced vapers. A new user to vaping may find setting up the device a bit of a challenge without following the instructions in the user manual. As it utilises the PnP pod tank, vapers who have used other VOOPOO devices with this tank will experience the same great flavour. The 0.2ohm and 0.15ohm coils which come in the kit are designed for direct lung vaping. When paired with high VG (70vg/30pg) e-liquid, this kit is perfect for cloud chasing.
Overall, the VOOPOO MUSKET is a great dual battery mod kit. With the power of two 18650 batteries, it offers plenty of battery life for all-day-vaping at any output wattage. The PnP coils provided in the kit perform really well and are easy to find at your local vape store.
