The VaporFi Vex 150 TC box mod joins an impressive line of devices and e-juices from this brand. This rig isn’t flashy, but it delivers a respectable amount of power and functionality that nuts-and-bolts vapers will appreciate. Here’s a closer look at the VaporFi Vex.
Introducing the VaporFi Vex 150 TC
When you shop for a mod today, it’s pretty easy to be overwhelmed by bells and whistles. Mega-powerful chipsets, trendy designs, and complex configurations rule the day. The VaporFi Vex 15o provides a decent amount of power and basic temperature control functions that can be easily adjusted with the three buttons on the device.
This dual-battery unit delivers up to 150W of power, but it will function best in the 80-100W range. That is sufficient for large clouds and big flavor, the things that matter most to sub ohm vapers. The temperature can be adjusted from 200F-600F and TC mode supports coil architectures of Ni, Ti, and SS316. You’ll note that these are standard features on pretty much every mod made today.
There are a couple of features which merit special mention. The mod allows you to set your own ramp up wattage. You’ve also got access to three memory slots or modes. This is useful if you find yourself switching out tanks for preferred settings. Programming these is pretty easy, and a beginner should really have no problem operating the rig right out of the box.
Personally, we think the mod also deserves a pat on the back for the hinged battery cover. We’ve seen some problems with magnetic battery covers. They work fine as long as there are no batteries inside, but the weight of the batteries can make the magnetic cover pop open. This mod’s battery cover snaps securely in place. It can, in fact, be a little difficult to open, but that’s better than popping open while you vape. However, the hinge battery cover has been noted to warp slightly over time and create an open in the circuit.
The mod has pass-through capability which allows you to charge while vaping.
The OLED display of the mod is almost 1”. That’s adequate for easy reading, but you’ll also notice that the information is presented in a stacked display. In other words, you don’t have to turn the mod on its side to read the settings. It’s bright, too, and that matters when you’re using the mod outdoors. The unit has a three-button setup, and we’re not gonna sugarcoat it. It’s not the most intuitive operational design. This is somewhat complicated by a user manual that doesn’t do a great job explaining things. Even so, a little experimentation will get you squared away in short order.
Let’s get real about the design of this mod. It’s square. It’s a little bulky and wide. The finish is very spartan. With that being said, it fits okay in a medium to large hand, but individuals with smaller hands may find holding the device a little awkward. At the end of the day, a great vape isn’t a beauty contest. It’s about performance, and this mod qualifies as a blue-collar device that does its job.

Who the VaporFi Vex 150 TC is Designed For
This is a user-friendly mod and can certainly be used by beginners with no issues. It will appeal most, however, to those who have some sub ohm vaping experience and don’t mind a minimalistic design. It’s like a pair of Wrangler jeans in a world full of Levis. Utilitarian is the word that comes to mind when describing this mod. It’s made for the vaper who doesn’t necessarily feel a need to make a fashion statement with their mod. Guys will probably appreciate it more than gals, but women will surely value its portability and power.
The VaporFi Vex 150 TC provides a decent amount of power and utilizes a hinged battery cover that is superior to the standardized magnet covers found in most mods. However, there are occasional misfires and the shabby circuitry surrounding the hinged battery cover does not justify the cost of this item.
