Freemax has become an industry leader in the world of vaping. Since 2014 they have been releasing some of the most innovative products. Freemax has just released the Fireluke 2 and this time they’ve paired it with the Twister 80W, which is the world’s first vape pen with wattage control.
It features a turn dial knob located at the bottom of the mod capable of setting your device between five and eighty watts. It also comes in six different graffiti design options and I’m a huge fan of the White/Black design that I received for this review. The device used in this review was sent to us free of charge, from MyVPro. Let’s get right to it!

In my opinion, Freemax really took a gamble with this kit. The Twister 80W kit is available in six different graffiti styles, which is why I feel when it comes to the design you’re either gonna hate it or love it. There are no solid color options but I wouldn’t discount them from releasing solid color options (including black and silver) in the future. All in all, I’m a huge fan of all six of the graffiti designs and kudos to Freemax for the creativity.
The Twister 80W kit comes fully loaded with the Fireluke 2 sub-ohm tank which features a patent pending air-release hole designed for easier filling and a less messy vaping experience. It also features a turn-style knob at the bottom of the device that can be used for adjusting your wattage up to 80W; I’m really starting to like this device already. Lets see if I feel the same after using it for a while.
DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY
The Twister 80W kit is a fairly light and slim device at just under 150mm tall and 24mm wide. It feels nice to hold and the size makes it easy to shove in my purse or jacket pocket. The white & black design we received for this review is quite nice. It comes with a 2300mAh built-in battery and uses USB charging. The graffiti designs are all very unique but the material used for the design is a little slippery. On the other hand the size and shape make gripping the mod easy and therefore does not create too much of an issue.
The firing button is in the shape of an upside down teardrop and is located near the top of the mod. The placement of the button makes holding and firing the device very comfortable. You can use either your thumb or index finger to fire and it doesn’t feel awkward. As an experienced vaper, I have noticed this to be something that users like to see as you either fire with one or the other. Also, I would strongly recommend turning the device off when putting it in your pocket as the button easily fires — even with the slightest touch.
There is an adjustable wattage control knob that is located at the bottom of the device. To use the knob you twist it clockwise to increase the wattage and counter-clockwise to decrease the wattage. The knob allows you to adjust the wattage in 5 watt increments starting at just five watts, all the way up to eighty watts. It also has a nice clickiness to it when you turn it to adjust the wattage. I found the knob to be very sturdy and well constructed. Adjusting the wattage is simple and easy.
BATTERY & CHARGING
The Freemax Twister 80W comes with a powerful 2300mAh built-in battery. The coils are pretty low resistance at 0.15ohm and 0.20ohm therefore I found the battery life to be pretty average. On a full charge the battery lasted me anywhere between half a day and a full day of usage depending on the wattage I had the mod set to. Thankfully, the battery recharges pretty quickly and can be recharged using a micro usb cable. I would suggest carrying one with you.
One thing I did notice is that the power seems to drop off pretty quickly when using it at higher wattages. For instance when I had the device set to 80W the draw seemed to get considerably weaker after around an hour of usage. To me, it felt like the device wasn’t able to output the 80W constantly unless it was nearly fully charged. In any case I mostly used the device at a higher wattage given the coils the kit came with.
When using the device be mindful of the color around the draw button. As I was using the device the battery life indicator colors seemed fairly accurate and I didnt have the device act up on me at all. When fully charged, the device lights up green. After a few hours of usage, the yellow will set in. Red means the device is low on charge, but it stays red long enough to allow you to get to a charger. I’m a huge fan of the accuracy because there is nothing more frustrating than a device dying on you — especially when you think that you still have some battery life left.
Battery Life Indicator
- Green – 100 – 65%
- Yellow – 65- 30%
- Red – 30 – 0%
To charge the Twister 80W you use a standard usb cable. When plugging in your device to charge you’ll notice a blue light flash about 5 times. This lets you know the device is properly connected. The device glows red while charging and you’ll know when your device is fully charged as the red light will turn off.
- Blue (Flashing) – Connected
- Red – Charging
- No Light – Fully Charged
The Fireluke 2 features a graffiti design that matches the design on the mod and the two paired together are absolutely beautiful. At 5ml the tank holds a fair amount of e-juice, limiting the amount of times you have to refill. I really liked that they included a second replacement bubble glass with the kit as well. You never know when you’ll have an accident and break the tank and this saves you from being stuck without a vape.
Using the slide to fill system I found it super easy to fill up, even when on the go. However, I would have liked the slider to be a little more secure and snug when closed; I noticed that the top cap wiggles a bit which is a little concerning. To make filling simple, the tank has a small red dot on the tank showing you where to push the cap open.
With the Fireluke 2, Freemax has introduced their new air-release system for a less messy filling experience. This is a great idea as sometimes an air bubble can form around the fill-port opening and you end up spilling juice everywhere. But with this design, the vent allows air to escape and this results in a smoother fill up. It also makes this tank extremely user friendly.
The Fireluke 2 tank comes with a standard 810 drip tip. The one thing that bothered me though was that the drip tip didn’t match the rest of the device. However, this is a small issue that can easily be fixed by swapping it out for another one.
With the Freemax Twister kit you’ll receive two Fireluke Mesh coils from the Firelike Mesh X family. They’re both made with all natural wicking fibers and are both best used at 40W and higher. The X1 Mesh coil is a single mesh coil rated at 0.15ohms and is best used between 40 and 90 watts. The X2 Mesh coil is a double mesh coil rated at 0.2ohms and is best used at 40-90 watts.
As similar as these two coils may be, you’ll get a more flavorful hit with the double mesh coil as there is more surface area. However, you’ll definitely notice yourself going through more ejuice when using the double mesh (more on this later).
The performance of the Twister 80W is second to none. One of the main reasons is that most kits come with a subpar tank. But one of the major selling points of this kit is the Fireluke 2 that comes included. The flavor from this tank is amazing and I was able to get decently large clouds. Also, the two airflows slots being fully adjustable allow you to experience a tighter or more airy draw depending on what you prefer.
The Fireluke 2 comes with two different coils. The X1 Mesh coil was best vaped between 65 and 80W and I found the flavor to be excellent. I was using Fuggin Vapor’s “The Silence of the Clouds” and there was no silencing these clouds — the vapor production was awesome! Plus, compared to most other tanks on the market, the flavor from this coil was top notch.
The X2 mesh coil from the same family was best used between 70 and 85W and the dual mesh coil brought even better flavor. I had a chance to use 5 Pawns “Gambit” ejuice and I could really taste the apple and caramel flavors coming through. Adjusting the airflow allowed me a tighter draw and more crisp flavor that I ended up sticking with. The only downside is that this coil goes through juice like no tomorrow. The increased surface area of the double mesh, along with the higher wattages, meant that I was refilling more often than I was with the single mesh coil.
I would have liked the fire button to be a little more clicky and not so sensitive — I found that I was firing the device in my pocket way too many times. This is a serious concern as this can cause you to burn out your coil much faster than needed. To avoid this happening, I highly recommend turning the device off when you put it away.
I’m very happy with the wattage control knob. It’s very well built and and super easy to use. I found adjusting the wattage was super easy and simple. With one full twist you can go from 5 to 80 watts quicker than a mod using normal adjustment buttons. I’m a big fan of the new adjustable wattage dial and I’m happy to see them implement it into such a great kit.
After using the device for about a week I have to say I’m very impressed and would absolutely recommend picking this kit up. I like how it feels when I’m holding it, it’s not too heavy and the flavor is phenomenal. I’m very happy with the tank that comes with the Twister and I believe that this, along with the wattage control, are reason enough to pick this kit up.
This would be a great kit for someone looking to upgrade from their first all in one device, but it’s also great even for someone who’s been vaping for years. The simplicity of the device caters to those who aren’t as experienced and who may not know all of the features and functions of some of the more elaborate devices.
At the same time, the ability to adjust your wattage and the high-build-quality and reliability of this kit make it a great choice for more advanced vapers. The Fireluke 2 is a great tank (especially for one that comes with a kit!) and will allow even the most experienced vapers to get a satisfying draw.
Until next time, Stay Versed!
