Our Verdict

The Innokin Sceptre 2 kit is sleek, compact, and effortlessly combines simplicity with sophistication in an elegant design. It has a good 1400mah internal battery capacity which lasts for days of vaping.

The side airflow control slider allows you to precisely adjust the draw easily on the go without having to remove the pod to do so, and it’s good for MTL or RDL vaping. The 2 power setting modes are also nice to have, and allows you the choice of saving battery or getting better flavor.  It also has lots of different coil options available, so you get great choices on how you want your vape to be.

The rubber plug fill port is okay, but I would prefer a top fill system as I find them so much easier to use. Having to remove the entire pod just to see your remaining ejuice level is a subjective con, but a con nonetheless. 

The Innokin Sceptre 2 kit will make a great starter kit for a beginner. It’s small and stealthy with awesome flavor, and the adjustable airflow can be taken down to a very tight MTL draw that closely mimics the feeling of drawing on a cigarette.

I would gladly recommend this kit to all levels of experience, whether you’re taking your first step into vaping, or a journeyman just looking for something new.

Today I’ll be reviewing the Sceptre 2 pod vape from Innokin. The original Sceptre was released in 2020, and it was quite popular among those looking for a simple and effective pod device. I have not used the original so I cannot compare the two directly in this review, but Innokin is a well known and respected company in the vaping industry with an outstanding track record. 

The Innokin Sceptre 2 has a premium quality feel to it. It has a lightweight and compact size, features a 1400mAh battery capacity, and 2 power setting modes. It also has a side airflow control slider allowing you to easily adjust the draw without having to remove the pod. 

The magnetic pod attaches securely onto the device and holds a respectable 3ml. Dual activation allows you the ability to choose between auto-draw or button activation, giving you more options to enjoy your vape. The coils are push-to-fit and use Innokin’s world famous Z-coils.

Design & Build Quality

  • Innokin Sceptre 2 - 1

At a first glance I can say that the Innokin Sceptre 2 has a refined and sleek expression which truly impressed me. I received the grey version for this review and the two tone front panel is simply remarkable. The Sceptre 2 is available in these 8 colors: Pink, Purple, Grey, Blue, White, Black, Rain forest and Red. 

The top portion of the front panel has diagonal striped lines contrasting the solid colored bottom portion of the device. The back, sides and bottom are of a solid silver color, except on the left side where the USB port is located, and the top right side where the airflow control slider slots into the device for ease of use. 

The name Sceptre 2 is written on the front panel on the bottom, while on the other side Innokin is written on the bottom. Overall branding and logos are kept to a subtle minimum that is very pleasing to the eyes.

The Innokin Sceptre 2 does have some weight to it compared to other pod devices, possibly due to the solid zinc alloy body construction and the 1400mAh battery. However, I find it helps give the device a premium look and feel.

Innokin Sceptre 2 - 8

The firing button is situated just below the silver diagonal line pattern in the middle of the front panel. The button is large, firm, responsive and doesn’t protrude much from the device, lending itself to be easily placed inside a pocket without having to worry of misfiring and ruining a coil. 

The two notification LEDs are located on each side of the firing button. This lets you know your current power setting and remaining battery life with just a quick look. 

Four strong magnets safely secure the pod into place. I dropped it on carpet flooring by accident, but the pod stayed inside the device, so it doesn’t come out too easily. The pod sits nearly completely inside the battery of the Sceptre 2, which makes it hard to see the remainder of your ejuice level. You have to take the pod out to check, which can be annoying. This also makes it easy to forget about your ejuice and accidentally burn the pod. 

The mouthpiece has a nice slim duck bill shape and is comfortable on the lips. 


Pod and Coils

  • Innokin Sceptre 2 - Pod with Coil Uninstalled

The Innokin Sceptre 2 pod has a dark tint and it sits flush inside the device, with only the mouthpiece sticking out. This makes it impossible to see your remaining ejuice level without first removing the pod from the device. It holds a good 3ml of ejuice, which is a respectable size compared to most of the competition (which hold 2ml). 

The fill port is big enough to accommodate a normal 30ml ejuice bottle tip and it uses a rubber plug fill system. I would prefer having a top filing pod, but this is subjective. As it is, the rubber plug fill system still works fine. 

You have to completely remove the pod from the device to locate the side fill port. The front of the pod has the Sceptre 2 logo and the back of the pod has warnings and the Innokin logo.

The replaceable coils included in the kit are the world famous Innokin S-Coils. These are available in 0.5Ω RDL, 0.6Ω MTL, 0.65Ω MTL, and 1.2Ω MTL coils in packages of five. All preexisting Innokin S-Coils are compatible with the Sceptre 2 except for the 0.25Ω coil. The two included coils inside the kit are the S-coil 0.5Ω (range 18-20W) and S-Coil 0.6Ω (range 12-13.5W). 

There are two sections to the coil. The wider, stubbier brass piece is the coil adapter, and the silver part with the Innokin logo, recommended wattage range, and the coil material type, is the actual coil. When replacing the coil, do not throw out the brass component part, as it is needed to screw onto the new coil.

The coils push fit into the bottom of the tank and you do not need to line up any random flat sides and edges. Simply screw on the brass adapter onto the coil and push it into the bottom of the pod.

The side airflow control slider is a great feature and easy to use, and it’s located on the side of the pod. It simply slides up or down for MTL or RDL, depending on your vaping preference, all without having to remove the pod from the device. The slider is firm but smooth when sliding, and since it’s flat, I didn’t have any issues with it catching when going in and out of my pockets.

Because of the side airflow control slider, the pod can only be inserted one way into the device. I like that the airflow slider can be closed to an extremely tight MTL draw that more accurately simulates a cigarette draw when compared to other pods; not all MTL devices will provide this, even though they claim to be MTL. 

The original Sceptre had the airflow adjustment at the base of the coil, so having it on the side is a great addition and I personally love having side airflow control for pods compared to the front or back of the device. 


How to Use the Sceptre 2

Innokin Sceptre 2 - 7

The Sceptre 2 is easy to use and not complicated at all to get started with. For starters, three clicks of the button will turn the device on or off. 

To change between the two different wattage settings on the device, quickly press the firing button twice to toggle between normal mode (blue LED) and turbo mode (pink LED). The LED light on the left of the button corresponds to the wattage setting modes normal (blue) or turbo(pink). 

Dual activation allows you to use either draw activation or button activation, whichever you prefer. Simply press the power button to vape, or draw on the mouthpiece and it will fire. 


Battery Life and Charging

Innokin Sceptre 2 - 4

The Sceptre 2 Pod mod has an enormous 1400mAh internal battery, the same size as the original, but in a smaller and more refined device. 

The LED light on the right of the power button is a battery life indicator that uses colors to show you how much power is left: 

  • Green: 100-30%
  • Yellow: 30-10% 
  • Red: 10% and under 

It easily lasted me multiple days (3 or 4) on a full charge, so you can expect the same or more depending on your coil, wattage, and frequency of use. As a general guideline, I managed to refill the pod three or four times before noticing the red LED light and needing to recharge. I also didn’t notice any significant changes in the strength or quality of the vapor as the battery life was decreasing. 

It took around two hours to charge from red to green. It does have pass-through charging enabling you to vape while plugged in, although for good measure I don’t recommend doing it. Because of the increased heat generated by the chip due to charging and vaping at the same time, this may increase wear and tear and could potentially cause problems for the device down the road.


Performance

Innokin Sceptre 2 - 10

If you’re looking for an MTL vape, this is an awesome choice for an easy-to-use kit. It’s also great if you’re looking for something stealthy, long lasting, and sophisticated. 

The 0.5Ω coil will fire at 18W or 20W between the blue and purple power settings, respectively. The 0.6Ω coil will fire at 11.5W or 16.5W between the blue and purple power settings, respectively. 

The 0.5Ω coil is best used with 3mg to 20mg nicotine strength ejuices. I used 3mg nicotine salts and this coil lasted 20ml of ejuice before needing replacing. The 0.6Ω coil is also best used with 3mg to 20mg nicotine strength ejuices. For this coil I used a 6mg regular nicotine ejuice and it lasted a little longer than than the other coil, around 25ml before needing replacing. 

Most of the time, I preferred using the ‘Normal’ power wattage setting (blue LED) to help preserve battery life, but ‘Turbo’ mode (pink LED) did increase the flavor, which is nice to see. I find that a lot of devices with predefined wattage settings don’t really make much of a difference, but not so with the Innokin Sceptre 2. 

The side airflow control allows you to really recreate the experience of a tight draw from a cigarette, making the Innokin Sceptre 2 a great start for someone who’s trying to quit smoking cigarettes and switch over and start their journey into vaping. 

Innokin S-coils have great taste and vapor as long as the airflow is at least somewhat closed for MTL or RDL. I experienced a burnt flavour when the airflow was completely open and vaping the Sceptre 2 in RDL style (3-5 second draws), the same thing happened with both included coils. But as long as I’d close the airflow to MTL and take shorter 1-3 second draws it vaped great and everything was just fine.

The only thing I can think of is that the wide open airflow pulls too much juice out of the wick when taking a draw, and it leads to a dry wick before the puff is over. Normal MTL or short RDL puffs seem to work just fine.

Best of all, after a few weeks of daily usage, I didn’t have a single drop/leak anywhere from both coils. So far, their claim of being leak-proof remains to be true except for a bit of condensation on the bottom of the pod base after about a week of usage — nothing a quick wipe from a q-tip couldn’t fix. 

The airflow is smooth, but the turbulence is noticeable in a quiet surrounding, and one sided because of the airflow position. This doesn’t bother me much, but I just wanted to mention it. I preferred the 0.6Ω MTL coil over the 0.5Ω RDL due to my penchant for a MTL style vape, but both coils performed above the average in flavour and longevity. I’m most excited to try the 1.2Ω MTL S-coil with the Sceptre 2 and see how long the 1400mAh battery will last.


Verdict

The Innokin Sceptre 2 kit is sleek, compact, and effortlessly combines simplicity with sophistication in an elegant design. It has a good 1400mah internal battery capacity which lasts for days of vaping. The side airflow control slider allows you to precisely adjust the draw easily on the go without having to remove the pod to do so, and it’s good for MTL or RDL vaping. The 2 power setting modes are also nice to have, and allows you the choice of saving battery or getting better flavor.  It also has lots of different coil options available, so you get great choices on how you want your vape to be.

The rubber plug fill port is okay, but I would prefer a top fill system as I find them so much easier to use. Having to remove the entire pod just to see your remaining ejuice level is a subjective con, but a con nonetheless. 

The Innokin Sceptre 2 kit will make a great starter kit for a beginner. It’s small and stealthy with awesome flavour, and the adjustable airflow can be taken down to a very tight MTL draw that closely mimics the feeling of drawing on a cigarette.

I would gladly recommend this kit to all levels of experience, whether you’re taking your first step into vaping, or a journeyman just looking for something new.
