Vpark 30w Mod Review
Vpark 30w Mod Review
Ever since Kanger fired the first shot just with the Subox Kit, the wave of tank/mod combo packages has taken the vaping community by storm. The obvious appeal of these combos is that they take the guesswork out of finding the perfect mod for your tank or vice versa by offering equipment that is optimized to be used together. Combine that convenience with the known quality of the Kanger brand, and it’s an easy recipe to start a revolution in box mods. One of the newest vapes of this time is the V-Box, which takes the concept and adds some welcome new features such as micro-USB charging. Is the combo package era the next big thing or the next failed fad? Find out in today’s review of the Vpark 30w Mod.

What’s New- Vpark 30w Mod
Along with its 50 watt stablemate, the Vpark 30w is part of a line of vaping equipment designed for proprietary peripherals. The tank designed for use with the Vpark 30w is the Maxtank Mini, a 510-threaded top filling clearomizer, and it is available bundled in a kit as well as separately. The Vpark 30w also features a simplified wattage control scheme that uses a dial to adjust voltage up or down.
The Vpark 30w is a variable voltage mod that can be adjusted anywhere between 5 and 30w in full watt increments, delivering precision control over vapor temperature and flavor.
Best Clearomizer for Vpark 30w Mod
The Maxtank Mini was developed specifically to pair with the Vpark 30w mod, and so we’d be remiss for not mentioning it here. The Maxtank Mini is a downsized version of the Maxtank Pro, which features slightly more powerful coils but is a bit over-sized for the streamlined profile of the Vpark 30w compared with its big brother. Featuring bottom vertical dual coils and airflow control at the top and bottom of the unit, the Maxtank Mini is far more than some cheap inclusion and can hold its own against some of the best in the game.
Of course, if you want to upgrade from the standard tank, there’s always a premium tank like the Aspire Triton. Not only does the Triton have a huge 6mL capacity to outpace units like the Kanger Subtank Mega, but its top filling design makes reloading it a breeze when it’s finally time. We took a long look at the Aspire Triton here on BC, and you can share our view by giving it a read.
The Vpark 30w Mod is powered by a single internal 18630-type battery which can be charged through its dust-proof USB charging port. The USB port also features passthrough technology to allow use while it charges
Performance levels on the Vpark 30w mod are good, with the unit turning out decent quantities of vapor with substantial flavor. It’s not an elite cloud chaser by any means, but it’s more than enough for casual users. Temperature was fairly warm for a 30w mod
Build quality on the Vpark 30w Mod is more than adequate, with the unit possessing solid construction and good weight in the hand. The exterior arrived in excellent condition with no visible scratches or flaws, and the internal fittings seem to be reasonably robust as well. The Vpark is overall a sharp looking unit if a tad bit generic, but a particularly strong element is the LED screen, which glows vividly in its large font display.
The Vpark 30w mod features standard 510 threading with a spring-loaded contact point to ensure maximum conductivity with a range of vaporizers.
It’s quite clear in which direction the gauntlet was cast with the release of the Vpark 30w Mod Kit, and there’s no use pretending it didn’t happen. The Subox is designed as a premium sub-ohm vape that makes a perfect partner for the manufacturer’s celebrated line of Subtanks, and features up to 50 watts of vaping power. It doesn’t have the passthrough technology the Vpark 30w Mod, but is virtually even in all other aspects, so it’s another great option for those seeking a combo setup.

We Would Have Liked to See…
The Vpark 30w is a great choice as an everyday unit, but a few elements of its design are slightly polarizing. The adjustment knob is easy to disturb accidentally for some, and this can prove a minor annoyance. That silicone flap that covers the USB port is as destined for inadvertent removal as any of its kind, and we also wonder if the LED screen would have been better placed atop the unit. Still, these are relatively minor criticisms of what is chiefly intended as a value vape.
All told, the Vpark 30w Mod delivers plenty of bang for your buck while being unmistakable proof that the combo tank/mod development initiative is here to stay. With the entire kit available for under $50, the Vpark 30w Mod and Maxtank Mini make an outstanding initial investment or backup vape and will serve their owner reliably. It’s not a fully featured powerhouse, but it doesn’t have the price tag of one either, so what are you complaining about? We feel confident saying an investment in the Vpark 30w is money well spent for those seeking a good vape for a great deal.
