This is our first review of a Wotofo product, but that doesn’t mean we had low expectations. On the contrary, we’ve heard really great things about the company, and here they teamed up with RigMod to create this Wotofo Flux 200W kit. We were excited to jump in, as we sure you are too. Let’s get to it!
Right away we were enamored with the design of this box mod. It’s just so sleek looking! The screen is front and center, and huge. It’s a 1.3 inch colour screen, which is just far and beyond what we are used to. It also is incredibly stealthy, being a tinted black shade until you turn it on and bring it to life. The buttons are equally stealthy, as they are thin and curve around either side of the screen. Below all that is a single vertical LED line that is customizable and leads to the USB port. All of this is in the front, yet there is no clutter whatsoever. The only thing on the side is the fire bar and it takes up the entire left side, matching the design approach of this vape mod perfectly.
The build of the Flux is equally impressive without any real flaws to point out. It fits perfectly in your hand and is smooth. It’s a nice sized box mod, neither overly big nor overly small, and it carries a good weight. The included Flow Pro tank matches the design of the Flux pretty well, and it’s easy to see why they go together. It has a nice sized drip tip and is constructed to high standards too, at least from the look and feel of it.
The investment in design and build can be a good tip off for how well a box mod will perform, but you certainly can’t rely on that assessment. We were intent on seeing how the Flux in combination with the Flow Pro tank performed. This is a 200 watt device that is relatively no frills, so we expected great attention to detail in how it vaped. The first thing we noticed was the very quick ramp up time. In fact, Wotofo has three different modes: Standard, Powerful, and Powerful+. Each one pre-heats the coil a little more in an effort to get you vaping right away.
The Flux has pretty good power in all three modes, but it didn’t come anywhere close to the 200 watts in terms of effective temperature. While nearly all box mods overstate their wattage, this one was pretty far off. We estimate that once you got past the 140-150 range you’ll experience some heat coming off the vape mod and want to turn it down. Thankfully, we found the optimal range for the Flow Pro tank’s included 0.18ohm coil at around 55 (it is rated between 40 and 60). At this mark we were able to get some really nice vaping! Both in terms of cloud size and with very good flavour reproduction.
There isn’t much to go over in terms of feature set. That if, of course, because this is a simple direct wattage device. Keep it simple! If you’re used to temperature control or TCR modes, or anything fancier, you best move on. The idea with this box mod is to give a great vaping experience in the most direct way possible. As we mentioned above, it does have three different settings that control pre-heating of your coil, so you do get to play a little. But that’s it.
This is a vape mod that runs off dual 18650 batteries, which is pretty common these days. You do have a USB port built into the device to charge your batteries, but you’re always better off charging with an external device. Battery life was pretty good, and at normal vaping conditions we were able to get almost a full day’s worth of vapour before needing to recharge.

Ease of Use:
Getting up and going with the Flux is very simple. The Flow Pro tank has an easy top fill design that makes loading e-liquid easy. Simply push the drip tip aside and insert your bottle to the revealed entry point. The spring loaded 510 connector has a solid pin and screws on perfectly. There’s also an airflow ring at the bottom of the tank which has just the right amount of give, so you can move it but it doesn’t move on its own.
Again, there aren’t really any options other than the coil pre-heat, so you won’t spend much if any time in the menu. In fact, the menu is as bare bones as can be, which is kind of refreshing.
With £69.99 being the lowest price from our list of trusted sellers, this is a mid-range box mod in terms of price. It’s higher wattage and comes with a very high quality tank, so you have to keep that in mind too. It’s true that you can find cheaper vape mods, but this one isn’t expensive by any means either.
With this being our first review of a Wotofo box mod, we can say that it definitely left a good impression. This is a very sleek and cool looking device and comes packed with a great tank. It ramps up quickly and delivers power pretty well, just not anywhere near the top of its range. Yet it is still able to convert that into some really nice clouds of vapour that were very tasty.
As another added plus, you can use baby beast coils on the Flow Pro tank. Being that we are big fans of their coils, this was a more than a nice throw in. Remember when making your decision that this is a box mod without temperature control or a whole lot of options. For some that’s not a big deal, and even an advantage, while for others it is key. The Wotofo Flux 200W kit is a great choice if you’re looking for basic operation with a lot of power and great performance. The design is one of our recent favourites too, and all in all this is a buy that you won’t regret.
