The bottom line

The LUXE X PRO is extremely similar to the LUXE X and LUXE XR, so is it worth purchasing? After using it extensively I can say that there are definitely some advantages to the LUXE X PRO over the X and XR, and even some advantages over the XR MAX.

What you get with the LUXE X PRO is a smaller device than the XR MAX which can be used for all styles of vaping, whether MTL, RDL, or DL. The X PRO is essentially the LUXE X and LUXE XR but with adjustable wattage and more precise airflow control for a between vaping experience, no matter what style you prefer.

This brings the choice down to being between getting the XR MAX or the LUXE X PRO. If you’re after higher wattages and RDL/DL, and can sacrifice a bit of portability (while still having a device smaller than a mod+tank setup), go for the XR MAX. If you want maximum portability in a device that can do all three  vaping styles, MTL/RDL/DL, out of the box then go for the X PRO.

The design, performance, pod life, and battery life are all very good so you can’t go wrong picking one up. Even if there are other pod devices more specialized at MTL, the LUXE X PRO does MTL so well that you won’t find yourself longing for anything else.

If you’ve been keeping up with new releases in the vaping world, then you’ll know that VAPORESSO’s LUXE series of devices just keeps growing. It’s one of their main series of pod devices, alongside their XROS series, and are there ever a number of devices to choose from.

Today I have with me the LUXE X PRO, the latest addition to the LUXE family. It joins the LUXE X, LUXE XR, and LUXE XR MAX as another nearly identical looking pod mod that can be used for MTL, RDL, or DL vaping. 

The LUXE X PRO, like the LUXE X, comes with two pods that have the coils built into the pod (non-removable coils). It’s compatible with LUXE X pods and LUXE XR pods with GTX coils, so there’s flexibility in what coil resistances you can use with this device.

The LUXE X PRO features adjustable wattage up to 40W and houses a 1500mAh battery that recharges with Type-C charging. It also has a 0.42” display that displays useful vaping information.

This is now the fourth similar-looking LUXE device to come out in roughly the last year, so does it bring anything new to the table? Did we really need another LUXE device? I got in-depth with the LUXE X PRO for two weeks to find out.

Design & Build Quality

  • VAPORESSO LUXE X PRO - 1

You don’t even need to get hands-on with the LUXE X PRO to know that it’s one of VAPORESSO LUXE pod mods. All it takes is a quick glance and you’ll be scratching your head and saying to yourself “hmm, I think that I’ve seen this device before”, and you would be right. The LUXE X PRO is very similar in shape, size, and design to the LUXE X, LUXE XR, and LUXE XR MAX. There are some differences of course, but there’s no mistaking this as anything other than a LUXE pod mod. 

Comparing the size to the rest of the LUXE family, the LUXE X PRO sits somewhere in the middle of the pack. It’s 99.1mm tall, 32mm wide, and 23.4mm deep, which makes it smaller than the LUXE XR MAX but slightly larger than the LUXE X and LUXE XR. 

Comparing the size of the LUXE X PRO to other pod vapes available on the market, it’s a pretty large device. It also has a fair amount of weight to it at 99g with a full pod. 

As I mentioned previously, the design is similar to VAPORESSO’s other LUXE devices but it’s also different. The LUXE X PRO has a metal frame that extends across the entire top, bottom, and center of the device. Around the sides are clear panels that cover a holographic decorative layer beneath them.

There are seven colors available, these being Black, Gumental Lime, Ultra Orange, Dazzling Yellow, Blue, Pink, and White. Dazzling Yellow has a black and yellow theme with a racing stripe down the center that looks really cool and it’s the only color to have this stripe. In general, the colors options are nice.

The front of the LUXE X PRO is where you’ll find the 0.42” display. It’s situated on a dark panel that gives the illusion that the screen is going to be larger than it actually is. In reality, the screen is pretty small but there’s still enough room for a battery life indicator (with percentage), wattage, and a puff counter. The screen also has ample brightness, even for outdoor usage.

The power/fire button is the same as other LUXE devices; rectangular with rounded corners. The adjustment buttons are small, square physical buttons (a regression from the touch screen buttons on the LUXE XR MAX). The buttons all feel firm and responsive and function with nice clicky feedback.

There’s an airflow slider located on the side of the LUXE X PRO, nearly identical to the one on the XR MAX. I had previously complained about how loose the airflow slider was on the LUXE XR MAX and although it feels a bit stiffer here, it’s still not as firm as it could or should be for precise control.


Pods

VAPORESSO LUXE X PRO - 14

The LUXE X PRO comes with two pods, both of which have the coils built into them. These are a LUXE X 0.4Ω pod and a LUXE X 0.6Ω pod. Both pods have a capacity of 5ml, which is plenty of ejuice no matter if you’re MTL, RDL, or DL vaping.

In addition to the included pods, the LUXE X PRO can also be used with other LUXE X PODS or with the LUXE XR MAX pod which is compatible with most of VAPORESSO’s GTX coils. This offers plenty of possibilities for what coil resistance you use with the LUXE X PRO, allowing you to find the right coil for your vaping style and preference.

VAPORESSO LUXE X PRO - 10

It’s worth noting that although the 0.4Ω pod is the same one that you get with the LUXE X and LUXE XR, the 0.6Ω pod is completely new to the LUXE X PRO. Both pods can be used for RDL/DL vaping, however the 0.6Ω pod can also be used for MTL.

I recommend sticking with freebase nicotine ejuices for these pods but if you’re used to mid-high strength nicotine salt ejuices then they can also be effectively used with the 0.6Ω pod.

According to the wattage that the LUXE X PRO sets when you insert a pod, the 0.4Ω pod is best used at 30W and the 0.6Ω pod is best at 24W.

The pods feature a rubber stopper with a deep plug that is located on the bottom of the pods. The fill hole is quite wide and I had no trouble filling, even with 100ml bottles. The rubber plug seems to hold the ejuice in quite well too and I have not experienced any leaking from the fill port thus far.


Features & Functions

VAPORESSO LUXE X PRO - 13

When I first looked at the specs for the LUXE X PRO, my immediate thoughts were that it’s basically the LUXE X with adjustable wattage and truly adjustable airflow. Now that I’ve used it for a bit, I can confidently say that my initial thoughts were correct.

The LUXE X PRO can fire at up to 40W and features a 1500mAH battery; the same specs as the pod mod that started it all, the LUXE X. The wattage can be adjusted using the adjustment buttons on the front of the device, although at first you’ll be limited in how high you can set the wattage. This is because the LUXE X PRO features a “smart mode” that can be turned off but it’s on by default. 

Smart mode automatically detects the resistance of the pod/coil that you’re using and then sets the wattage appropriately. Smart mode also limits the maximum wattage that you can set for the coil in order to prevent running too much power to, or burning, the coil.

With smart mode active, the 0.4Ω pod will be set to 30W and can be set up to a maximum wattage of 32W. With the 0.6Ω pod the wattage will be set to 24W and can be increased up to a maximum wattage of 26W. But what if you want to set the wattage higher? Thankfully, you can easily disable smart mode by pressing and holding the power button and up adjustment button at the same time.

I can’t forget to mention the adjustable airflow slider on the side of the LUXE X PRO. This slider, in combination with the correct pod/coil, allows you to tweak and tune the draw to your liking for MTL, RDL, or DL vaping. I’ll go more in-depth about which pod to use for which vaping style in the performance section of this review, but the short and sweet of it is that the 0.6Ω pod can be used for MTL and RDL, while the 0.4Ω pod is best used for RDL and DL vaping.

This device features both button and draw activated firing and, according to their website, VAPORESSO has made this the most responsive auto draw yet even for RDL and DL vaping. It’s a noticeable improvement over other draw activated devices as the LUXE X PRO has no trouble firing even from light pulls with the airflow fully open. Good stuff by VAPORESSO here.

LUXE X PRO Button Combinations

  • Power ON/OFF: Press the fire button five times.
  • Lock or unlock device: Press the fire button three times.
  • Turn smart wattage on/off: Press and hold the fire button and up adjustment buttons together.
  • Clear the puff counter: Hold the fire button and down adjustment buttons together.

Battery & Charging

VAPORESSO LUXE X PRO - 9

The LUXE X PRO has a 1500mAh battery that provides decent usage times, even when vaping in the 25-35W range. This section will be based on my experience with the included pods, but you will see better usage times if you opt to purchase higher resistance pods/coils and use lower wattages. The lengths of your draws will also affect battery life but this section should give you a general idea of how long a charge will last you.

I vaped about 400 puffs per charge with the 0.6Ω pod at 25W and around 300 puffs with the 0.4Ω pod at 30W. That being said, the pod of the LUXE X PRO is an excellent capacity at 5ml and I consistently vaped one to one and a half pods per charge depending on the pod and wattage. That’s 5-7.5ml of ejuice per charge, which is nothing to scoff at.

The Type-C charging port is located on the bottom of the LUXE X PRO and it takes 55 minutes to fully charge from a dead battery. The screen will show an approximate charging time when plugged in, giving you some indication of when it will be finished. In my experience it starts off at an hour but then takes slightly less time to actually fully charge. Oh, and it features pass-thru charging so you can use it while it regains some juice.


Performance

VAPORESSO LUXE X PRO - 7

Straight out of the box the LUXE X PRO can be used for all styles of vaping: MTL, DL, or RDL. If you’re unfamiliar with what these terms mean, check out our full guide to the difference between MTL, RDL, and DL vaping.

The 0.4Ω pod is one that I’m familiar with, having used it for my review on the LUXE XR MAX and also here and there when I’ve used the LUXE X and LUXE XR. You can get a nice DL draw with a touch of restriction with the airflow open but you can increase the restrictiveness of the draw by closing down the airflow. The airflow adjustment range is large so you can really dial in your draw to how you like it. 

Freebase nicotine ejuices are recommended with this pod as I found nicotine salt ejuices (even lower strength ones) to hit too hard. This pod is recommended for 30W after all, so sticking with freebase ejuices will give the best experience. The flavor from this pod is quite good, even comparable to some tank and mod setups, so it makes the LUXE X PRO very usable as a more portable DL or RDL setup.

The 0.6Ω pod is the one to use if you’re a MTL vaper who also likes to RDL. You can get a slightly restricted DL vape which can be taken down to a RDL vape and then to a MTL vape by closing the airflow down. I set the wattage for this pod to just above the recommended to 25W and it’s pretty great to vape with. I mainly used 20mg nicotine salt ejuices for this pod and they don’t vape too harshly at all; it’s actually just right. 

I didn’t have any leaking while using either pod and I’ve refilled each of them multiple times during the last two weeks. To add to this, the flavor has also remained good and consistent throughout these multiple refills.


Verdict

The LUXE X PRO is extremely similar to the LUXE X and LUXE XR, so is it worth purchasing? After using it extensively I can say that there are definitely some advantages to the LUXE X PRO over the X and XR, and even some advantages over the XR MAX.

What you get with the LUXE X PRO is a smaller device than the XR MAX which can be used for all styles of vaping, whether MTL, RDL, or DL. The X PRO is essentially the LUXE X and LUXE XR but with adjustable wattage and more precise airflow control for a between vaping experience, no matter what style you prefer.

This brings the choice down to being between getting the XR MAX or the LUXE X PRO. If you’re after higher wattages and RDL/DL, and can sacrifice a bit of portability (while still having a device smaller than a mod+tank setup), go for the XR MAX. If you want maximum portability in a device that can do all three  vaping styles, MTL/RDL/DL, out of the box then go for the X PRO.

The design, performance, pod life, and battery life are all very good so you can’t go wrong picking one up. Even if there are other pod devices more specialized at MTL, the LUXE X PRO does MTL so well that you won’t find yourself longing for anything else.
