Innokin Klypse Pro Review: An Affordable, Beginner MTL Vape

Innokin Klypse Pro - 11

The bottom line

I’m not 100% sure this vape deserves the “Pro” moniker. Does having a 1000mAh battery, slightly adjustable wattage, three pod options, and an OLED display truly shout “this is a Pro vape” these days? Perhaps “Klypse 2.0” would have been a more realistic title.

That’s not to say that it is a bad vape. I have tested and reviewed almost every device in the Klypse range over the last few years, and have not been unhappy with the quality or performance of any of them. The Klypse Pro is no different, although it might have impressed me more if it were the first pod vape I’d ever used.

Sadly, it isn’t, and the fact there are so many great pod vapes available today means it falls a bit flat in comparison, even if it is a significant update to the original Klypse. It’s a decent beginner MTL vape that can be picked up for little money, which is something that shouldn’t be sniffed at. Just don’t expect to be blown away by the performance or find any features that most vapers would consider “Pro”.

The Innokin Klypse Pro is an upgrade for the ‘Klypse’ range as a whole and, more specifically, an update of the original Klypse pod vape, which won several awards in 2022 for being voted best beginner vape and best pod vape.

With new features such as adjustable 6-25W power settings and a bigger 1000mAh battery, it promises to deliver an evolved vaping experience to fans of its predecessor and sibling, even the attractive and impressive Klypse Mecha.

But does this low-priced and seemingly beginner-friendly pod vape deserve to have “Pro” added to its name, or is that simply an easy way for Innokin to let users know that it has been upgraded and improved over the previous version? I was keen to put it through its paces to try and find out.

Design & Build Quality

  • Innokin Klypse Pro - 1

The design of the Klypse Pro looks, at least initially, very similar to the original Klypse vape. It has the same tall and slim rectangular shape, the same curved sides, and the same removable protective cap over the mouthpiece. Start to look closer, however, and anyone who has used the original will spot the changes.

Firstly, there’s the shiny black strip down one side that contains a button. As the Klypse Pro is auto-draw, this is only used to turn the vape on and off and activate/use the new digital display positioned just below it. The second major change is an adjustable airflow slider on the front face, rather than the single airflow hole its predecessor had.

Branding is minimal and discreet, or at least discreet when the vape isn’t in use. The Innokin logo running down a third of one edge is now the battery life indicator, which lights up each time you draw on the vape. The color range available is also dominated by fairly discreet hues, including blue, black, red, and green. Two color gradient options have been thrown in for those who want something slightly jazzier.

The protective cap is held in place by a pressure-fit system, just like on the Klypse, and feels very secure. Magnets inside the top of the cap allow it to be attached to the base of the device to keep it from being lost when the vape is in use. That makes the new location of the USB-C port on the base seem like a slightly odd design choice, particularly considering that the device allows vaping while charging.

The main shell of the Klypse Pro is made from aluminum alloy, with plastic sections on the cap and base, presumably to allow the magnets to work better, and along one side. It looks nice and the shape isn’t uncomfortable to hold, yet it doesn’t feel as solid and nice in my hand as I expected when I first opened the box. I think it’s the lack of curved corners and how the top edge of the cap feels almost sharp (it isn’t sharp, but it does feel somehow unfinished.)


Pods

Innokin Klypse Pro - 12

Klypse pods fit any device in the Klypse range, from the Zip to the Mecha and now the Klypse Pro. Innokin recently upgraded all of the pods for this range of devices, and you get two of these improved 2ml pods with the Pro kit: a pre-installed 0.6Ω pod and a 0.8Ω version in the box. The only other option, sold separately, is a 1.2Ω pod for those who want a tighter MTL experience.

The pods are side-fill which, in my rankings of such things, is better than bottom-fill but not as good as top-fill pods. Thankfully, they seem pretty good at keeping your vape liquid inside where it should be and not sloshing around the battery contacts. I experienced a tiny bit of leaking from the airflow channels at times, but it was very minimal and very occasional.

Innokin Klypse Pro - 13

The magnets that hold the pod in the socket are reassuringly strong. There’s little chance of a pod dislodging in your pocket, even if the protective cap wasn’t snapped on. The magnets are, in fact, so effective that if your fingers are even slightly greasy, getting the pods out can be a little tricky.

That problem isn’t lessened by the fact that more than half of the pod sits inside the socket, with only the tapering mouthpiece exposed. The more often you’re forced to pop the pod out to check e-liquid levels, the more finger grease will be on the pod.


Features

Innokin Klypse Pro - 14

Despite having the word Pro in its title, the feature list for the Klypse Pro is decidedly standard when compared to most modern pod vapes. You do get adjustable wattage, which isn’t always assured in a vape that costs around fifteen bucks, but other than that the most unique feature is the dust cap.

The approximately 10mm x 6mm PMOLED (Passive-Matric Organic Light-Emitting Diode) display is small, but bright and clear. It would be easier to read if it wasn’t recessed into the body quite so much, but it isn’t a huge problem. The display is activated by pressing the button or drawing on the vape and shows wattage and battery level, a puff timer, and resistance when a pod is first slotted in.

While the device does have a button, it’s draw-activated only. And even though I knew that, I still occasionally pressed it, expecting the vape to fire. Not having an activation button isn’t going to be a huge problem for most vapers, but it is worth considering if you prefer the flexibility of having both draw options.

Airflow is adjustable, but less so than it might at first appear. The slider is similar in size to many others found on comparable devices, but there are only two holes, and only one of those can be closed. That means there isn’t a massive difference when air is restricted or not.

I don’t honestly see the point of the dust cap, just as I didn’t when I used the Klypse Zip device, but you can leave it in the box if you feel the same. Thanks to those strong magnets, the pods won’t be in danger of falling out.


Battery Life & Charging

Innokin Klypse Pro - 7

Just like cell phones, vape upgrades should always have bigger batteries than their predecessor, or they will be hard to sell to me. Thankfully, Innokin agrees with me (probably) and has given the Klypse Pro a 300mAh battery advantage over the Klypse.

1000mAh is honestly about the bare minimum modern pod vapers should expect, and because this vape is likely to be used for MTL at relatively low power, it’s a perfectly reasonable capacity here. A full charge easily lasted me two days with a 0.8Ω/18W setup and wasn’t far short of two days at 0.6Ω and 25W.

It would have been nice to see a 2A fast-charge USB port, but the 1A port provided is probably more realistic given the low price point of the Klypse Pro. Recharging from empty, using the cable provided, took between 50 and 60 minutes during my tests.

As mentioned earlier, along with an indicator on the OLED, the remaining battery power is shown by the logo color, of which there are three:

  • Green: Above 30% remaining
  • Yellow: 10%-30% remaining 
  • Orange: Below 10% remaining

The logo will also light up to show the charging progress (again, shown on the display as well), with red denoting below 90% and green above 90%.


Performance

Innokin suggests that the Klypse Pro is suitable for both MTL and RDL vaping, and while that may be true, it suits the former style much more than the latter. The draw is tight with the airflow restricted (the airflow can’t be fully closed; there’s always one hole exposed) and not exactly loose with unrestricted air.

To get an enjoyable RDL vaping experience, you’ll almost certainly want to run it at 23-25W, using the 0.6Ω pod and both airflow holes exposed. I found it provided an acceptable RDL vape, with a good amount of vapor and a satisfying throat hit in this configuration.

The first time I used it, I experienced a bit of popping and crackling. This is often a sign of too much liquid flooding the coil due to a low-power setting. Luckily, the problem went away after I pushed it up to 20W+ and hasn’t been a problem since, even with the power reduced.

Flavor production is decent but possibly more suited to less fruity and sweet options like tobacco or menthol-based juices. It didn’t seem to bring out the same sort of flavor intensity from my go-to 50/50 freebase e-liquid that comparable devices like the TRINE were able to.


Verdict

I’m not 100% sure that this vape deserves the “Pro” moniker. Does having a 1000mAh battery, slightly adjustable wattage, three pod options, and an OLED display truly shout “this is a Pro vape” these days? Perhaps “Klypse 2.0” would have been a more realistic title.

That’s not to say that it is a bad vape. I have tested and reviewed almost every device in the Klypse range over the last few years, and have not been unhappy with the quality or performance of any of them. The Klypse Pro is no different, although it might have impressed me more if it were the first pod vape I’d ever used.

Sadly, it isn’t, and the fact there are so many great pod vapes available today means it falls a bit flat in comparison, even if it is a significant update to the original Klypse. It’s a decent beginner MTL vape that can be picked up for little money, which is something that shouldn’t be sniffed at.
