Kumiho Thoth T Review By Antony-Cover

Healthcabin asked me to take a look at the latest starter kit from Kumiho, the Thoth T, with its radio inspired design. It also has a large battery for this class of pod kit promising all day vaping and a built-in fidget spinner so I thought it might at least be worth a whirl.

  • 48 x 23 x 78 mm
  • 143 grams
  • Internal 1300mAh battery
  • Maximum output 35 watts
  • 2ml PCTG pod

The Thoth T kit is available in five colours, and I chose the arctic silver version for review, and this comes nicely packaged with the kit clearly displayed in a window on the front of the box. You’ll also find an instruction booklet and a lanyard in the box but sadly no spare pod or usb charge cable.

First impressions out of the box are “bloody hell what’s this made of, lead!?” (It’s actually Zinc alloy). For a compact pod system, this is incredibly heavy weighing in at a whopping 143 grams. The words “industrial” and “over engineered” spring to mind. For comparison, the Pulse AIO I reviewed recently is only 169 grams with an 18650 battery installed (and 124 grams without) and that’s a full blown Boro mod! Having said that, it does feel fairly durable so this might appeal to you if you tend to be a bit heavy handed with your gear.

The Thoth T is about the same size as other popular kits like the UWell Caliburn KOKO series but is considerably thicker, in part due to its relatively large 1300mAh internal battery, but also Kumiho do appear to have gone a bit overboard on the zinc alloy chassis. There’s a USB-C charge port on one side and an airflow control on the opposite side, up front there’s a large rubber/silicone grip which is obviously meant to invoke the look of a speaker, and this has in fact been very useful as I always feel like I have a solid grip on the device.

The device can be turned on or off with five clicks of the knurled metal button on the top left, this can also be used to fire the device. Whilst this has a satisfying click there is sadly a bit of excess play which means it also rattles and combined with the integrated fidget spinner on the other corner, this can at times sound a bit like a baby’s rattle. At first I thought the fidget spinner was pointless but in daily use I have found myself absentmindedly fidgeting with this constantly whilst this has been in my hands so make what you like out of that.

The airflow control has a decent amount of adjustment, but the placement could be better. I did initially find myself accidentally blocking this with my fingers constantly until I figured out the best was to hold it in either hand (it’s with the airflow pointing out away from the palm of your hand by the way)

In my charge test, this hit a peak charge rate of 0.75 amps and gave a final recorded capacity of 1559mAh which is way above the quoted specification and quite impressive given the size. I hope you’re not in a hurry though as this took a whopping two and a half hours to charge!

Pods sit in a recess at the top of the unit and are held in place with magnets, only one 0.8 ohm pod is included in the kit, but the pods are at least clearly marked and made from a clear PCTG in this case. You can see the draw activation tube under the coil here and the auto draw system has performed flawlessly so I’ve used that throughout my time with the Thoth T.

The Thoth T is compatible with the full range of Thoth series pods and coils, and these cover quite a wide range from 0.4ohms for restricted direct lung vaping all the way up to 1.2ohms for a fairly tight mouth to lung experience. Healthcabin were at least thoughtful enough to send me a sample pack of some of the other pods available, so I have those to look forward to, but for the purposes of the review, I stuck to the supplied 0.8 ohm pod which sits in the middle of the pack and gives me the loose mouth to lung draw I prefer with these type of kits.

The pods have a 2ml capacity and are easily filled via the clearly marked bung port at the base. There’s a modern mesh coil in here so the flavour has been superb comparing quite well against my favourite UWell and Voopoo pods, and although I wasn’t able to find any information on the coils, I haven’t had any issues in use so they’re probably kanthal (or at least the 0.8ohm pod is).

Conclusion

Despite my initial misgivings with the weight of the Kumiho Thoth T kit, I’ve actually come to quite like it. I’ve also had a couple of curious people at work asking what it is and commenting positively about the design. Flavour from the pod has been great which is always a bonus, and that large battery was easily able to get me through two days’ use.

Thanks to the impressive battery life and great pods, I’m awarding the Thoth T a solid 7 out of 10 with points lost due to the weight and slow charging.

 Pros Cons
 √Kumiho Thoth T pod ×Heavy!
 √Large battery capacity ×Rattles a bit
 √Good flavour from the 0.8 ohm pod ×Slow charging

Many thanks to Healthcabin for sending the Kumiho Thoth T kit over for review.
