Unboxing and first impressions
Packaging is very standard having a box inside a sleeve, opening reveals the device and 2 pods resting in their own spots in a plastic tray with your paper material of the user manual and warranty card inside a cardboard envelope, no charge cord is included in this kit.
The Model V is a very sleek and slender device that’s also a featherweight because of it’s aluminum construction. The paint finish is of a metallic look and looks very nice, there is a logo of a Fox on one of the sides with it’s eyes illuminating 2 LED lights when vaping, charging or installing or removing a pod, you will also feel a vibration letting you know the pod is fully seated inside the device.
On one side of the device is the adjustable airflow control which consists of 3 slots that can be opened or closed down to tailor your MTL vape. The Type-c charge port is on the bottom of the device, no buttons on the Model V and it’s auto-draw only.
Having a look inside the device and the 2 pods included in the kit you can see the 2 gold contact pins and the airflow feeding intake hole as well as the air feed hole that supplies air to the pod. Both pods are clearly marked being 0.6Ω and 1.0Ω.
The placement of the charge port being on the bottom in this case works out better because of the rounded off corners for a comfortable feel in the hand but it makes the device prone to being tipped over easily, it can be stood upright but I suggest laying it down when not in use.
The pods have the standard fill method of a rubber plug, in this case the plug is on the side with a arrow pointing to the correct opening spot. The fill hole has a good sized opening and is wide enough to allow air to escape when filling preventing a messy fill up.
There is also a minimum fill level line on each of the pods. The mouthpiece is on the thin slender side not being bulky which is very comfortable to use. Being very lightly tinting make viewing your juice level a breeze.
On the face of the device is the logo of a Foxes face at the top and Kumiho branding at the bottom , the Foxes eyes have 2 tiny but very bright LED lights that when vaped, charged or when the pod is removed or inserted into the device light up with a white light until the battery reaches 30% at which point they change to a Red color, I suggest charging when they turn red because the battery has very little power left and depletes very quickly.
On the flipside of the device the Model V is branded at the bottom, paint finish is really done well and has sort of a metallic look. Having a longer than most mouthpieces while being thin works well with the Model V and a lightly tinted pod is a treat, juice viewing is easily done. The airflow control lever is barely visible and stays in place when adjusted.
The Kumiho Model V has adjustable airflow via 3 slots on one side that can be closed down to no airflow, when closed completely down some air still makes it way through making the vape somewhat tighter, fully open it’s still a MTL vape only looser by a small margin. The airflow is smooth at any setting having no turbulence.
I have to tell you that I really did not think that the performance would be as good as it is and I will go out on a limb and say it’s a great starter kit for a MTL Pod Kit. Flavor is pretty good and I’ve had no issues except some flooding with the 1.0Ω pod that a quick flick removing excess juice from the pod solved, it happened mainly after filling.
The 0.6Ω coil did not have this issue and the flavor seemed to be better and was more my style of vape. Again I have to say the little Fox surprised me in a good way.
Being as lightweight and as thin as it is makes it perfect for shirt pocket carry, compared to other devices that meet that task the Model V is much thinner and takes up less real estate while having a adjustable airflow control the other 2 devices pictured don’t.
- Good Flavor
- Type – C
- 2 Pods In The Kit
- Adjustable Airflow
- No Charge Cord Included
- 0.1 Coil Floods At Times
I found that in the time of using the Model V the only issue to be found was the flooding of the 0.1Ω coil when freshly filled, airflow was smooth and on this device I used it with 1 airflow slot opened or I cut that 1 slot in half and liked it that way, as I mentioned already this would be a nice kit for a new MTL vaper and having the option of pre-filled pods is a nice bonus of the Model V. I would like to thank Sue and Healthcabin for providing the Model V for the purpose of this review.
