Transitioning smokers rejoice – hardware manufacturers are clearly focusing on entry-level kits at the moment, with AIO releases going from strength to strength.

This week we’re taking a look at the Vaporesso Luxe PM40, Wotofo Manik and Geekvape Mero AIOs.

Vaporesso Luxe PM40 specs:

Dimensions: 96.45mm*30.6mm*21.5mm

Power output: 5W-40W

Battery capacity: 1800mAh internal cell

E-liquid capacity: 4ml/ 2ml (TPD edition)

Charging: 2A USB-C

Price: $27.99 (pre-order)

Vaporesso has demonstrated serious commitment to its GTX coil compatible AIOs over the last few months and this continues with the Vaporesso Luxe PM40.

Traditionally, Vaporesso’s Luxe devices have been on the premium end of their product stack but that’s not the case this time, with the Luxe PM40 coming in at a reasonable $27.99.

The Vaporesso Luxe PM40 is compatible with all existing GTX press-fit coils and is powered by a stripped back version of the AXON chipset. Vaporesso claims that this chipset is able to deliver full power, even as the battery depletes, which is great news for those who prioritise a super consistent vape experience.

In addition to this, the Vaporesso Luxe PM40 features fully adjustable airflow and lightning fast 2A charging, which gives this device the ability to charge from flat to full in under an hour.

With tried and tested coils, a sleek chassis and some smart design choices, this looks to be a great all around choice for any new or intermediate vaper.

Wotofo Manik

Wotofo Manik specs:

Dimensions: 126mm*33mm*27mm

Power output: 5W-80W

Battery capacity: 1x 18650 external cell

E-liquid capacity: 4.5ml/ 2ml (TPD edition)

Charging: 1.5A USB-C

Price: $39.95 (pre-order)

Wotofo are best known for enthusiast focused products but they’re finally jumping into the AIO space this week.

The Wotofo Manik certainly takes design cues from competitors, with an external 18650 spec, 80W regulated chipset and a wide variety of finishes.

The device is compatible with Wotofo’s own Manik coils, which feature Nexmesh internals, along with Vaporesso GTX and Voopoo PnP fittings.

The choice to make the Wotofo Manik compatible with such a wide range of stock coils is clever, making it a versatile pick for any intermediate vaper.

In addition to the base device, Wotofo are already advertising an RBA deck for the Manik, which opens up further options for enthusiast vapers who might not be too keen on using stock coils.

Overall, this looks to be a solid full-sized AIO, with elements that should appeal to novice and veteran vapers alike.

Geekvape Mero

Geekvape Mero specs:

Dimensions: 81.6mm*23mm

Battery capacity: 2100mAh internal cell

E-liquid capacity: 3ml/ 2ml (TPD edition)

Power output: Three levels of variable power

Charging: USB-C

Price: $24.99 (pre-order)

At this stage I almost expect every Geekvape release to be part of the premium Aegis line, so their latest reveal has come as a bit of a surprise.

The Geekvape Mero is a simple, affordable stick style AIO, with more versatility than you might initially expect.

Even though it has a basic appearance, it still incorporates fully adjustable airflow, including MTL settings, along with three levels of variable power output.

The Geekvape Mero is compatible with all Boost coils, which makes the device an easy pick up for anyone who’s already integrated in the Geekvape AIO ecosystem.

Thankfully, the Geekvape Mero is also equipped with a 510 connection as standard, which means you’re not just restricted to the included atomiser and stock coils.

Due to the affordable price point, generous 2100mAh internal cell and minimalist looks, the Geekvape Mero could be an attractive option for a number of demographics, including transitioning smokers and advanced vapers who want a small, stealthy mod for their favourite MTL atomiser.
