Infinite inone intro
LIQUID-LEVEL WINDOW. DESCRIBE THE FORM.
For those tired of closed-system pod vapes with short battery life and minimal power, Shenzen Infinite Technology just released the inone (as in all-in-one), which is an open system, variable wattage pod mod.
The inone is a unique looking pod mod designed for mouth-to-lung vapers that want more of their pod system. Whether it’s more power, control, flavor, or vapor, the inone offers more! Built on an all-in-one platform that uses an open system (2 mL) for refilling, a variable wattage range of 5-25 watts (with an easy-to-read OLED screen), the Infinte inone is attempting to make it possible for the beginner (or any vaper) to find their own sweet spot with ease. And with 1,500 mAh built-in battery, you won’t need to be as tethered to an external power source.
As always, the proof will be in the performance (not the specs), and how it holds up in real world vaping. So let’s get into the review and take a closer look at the Infinite inone. This one has my interest piqued.

Shape of the inone
When I got the Infinite inone pod mod and opened up the package, I was shocked at how much the inone looked almost exactly like the G Pen Elite dry herb vaporizer. The shape of the inone is a slight departure for e-juice vape mods, whether pod vapes or any other — but the inone performs as a normal, it’s just a different form factor than usual (unless you have the G Pen Elite!).
The inone shape is very ergonomic, and because it is also lightweight (being a plastic construction), it is very comfortable. With three mixed finishes on each inone (black matte, black gloss, and a black rubberized finish) this thing looks super slick (check the photo gallery. I had fun taking these pics).
It was a bit strange to hold at first, and I wish the button was on the underside of the mod, but it takes no time at all to get adjusted to its form. I care more about the vape than the form. As long as it’s comfortable and not gaudy, I can get down with it.
How to use the inone
- Take out the inone and pod from the package (you will not need the extra coil. One is in the pod already).
- Pop off the mouthpiece of the mod by using your nail (there is a little cut-out at the base of the mouthpiece in the front, be careful or it will go flying).
- Grab your favorite e-juice. The ratio best for the inone pods (I’ve found) is anywhere from 70 VG to 70 PG, with 50/50 being the comfortable medium.
- Take the pod.
- You can fill the pod either by top fill or side.
- If using the side fill (recommended!), make sure the rubber stopper is flush as can be when closing up the pod (so it doesn’t open up when inserting into the mod).
- If using the top fill (not recommended), pluck out the rubber stopper from the top and fill and fill leaving no less than 4 mm from the top. If you go too far in the filling, you will get leaking and gurgling (and there is no max fill-level mark, likely because this isn’t really supposed to be how you fill it).
- Also, if filling from the top and you leave the pod in the mod, do it very quickly or it will leak out of the bottom inside the mod.
- Put the mouthpiece back on. If you see a gap in the base, just keep pressing until is on properly (it’ll make sense if you use one).
- Click the fire button 5x to turn on. Adjust voltage up or down by the two side buttons (start out low. The included coil in the pod should be a 1.6-ohm coil. But still, start out low for a puff or two). Adjust to taste (more power gets your more vapor and a warmer flavor).
- When going to take a pod out of the mod, pop off the mouthpiece, and pull out the pod by pinching the exposed portion of the chimney, and pull up. It’s a bit of an archaic way (in my opinion)to access the pod, but it’s no biggie.
- Super-slick look for an e-cig
- unobtrusive OLED lights as you vape
- Feels great in the hand
- Very comfortable mouthpiece
- Great MTL draw that is not too tight or too lose
- Variable wattage
- Able to be used as a pass-thru
- Great throat hit
- Good and consitent flavor
- Substantial vapor for 25 or fewer watts
- Not a very sophisticated refill system
- Lackluster method for removing pod
- No adjutable airflow
Note: You charge the inone with an included, standard micro-USB charger. The inone can be used as a pass-thru, but you can’t stand it up as it charges. Minor inconveniences.
Note II: to change out a pod’s coil/chimney, pluck out the top stopper and unscrew. It’s small and it may get messy if there is a little juice left. Use a napkin here.
The inone empty pods hold 2 mL of juice and are able to be refilled (without a hack!). They come with two resistances for replaceable coil/chimneys: a 1.6-ohm and a 2.0-ohm coil. The 1.6-ohm coils I push with about 15-22 watts, and the 2.0-ohm coils can go as high as 15 watts before it gets a little too toasty.
I haven’t had the inone long enough to speak on the longevity of the coils, but I have gone through at least 10 mL on one coil and it shows no signs of diminished performance.
All the pods are is a refillable, plastic tank with disposable chimney/coil housings. The pod (tank) is not what is disposable, though I am sure you will be able to get more. The coil/chimney is what you replace (and I don’t know yet about pricing of replaceable coils).
I am not a fan of the pod’s refilling sections or even the way you have to pull out the pod. It just doesn’t seem like a lot of thought went into that aspect. But, it works fine as is. No complaints with functionality, just a bit lacks finesse in design.
Draw of the inone
The inone is billed as an MTL draw, and it is, but I didn’t expect such an easy draw! It’s like an open-MTL versus a tight-MTL draw. It’s got about the same amount of air as the Nautilus Mini in its most open setting, but the flow of air from the inone is much smoother and free-flowing.
The downward slanted mouthpiece may seem odd in the beginning, but it is designed very well for this type of draw. At first I missed having an actual drip tip, but it took less than a day for me to want for nothing else. It really is a nice feeling to the tip, and the tip really does aid in the smoothness of the draw.But my first rip of the inone was far too much. I use 24 mg/mL or higher in MTL devices (from the MyJet all the way to the Nautilus Mini), but in the inone, that nic level was way too high for me! And the throat hit in this thing is intense. I can’t believe I am going to say this, but the inone provides throat hit with very low nicotine. Something I have always thought to be impossible.
I am now using mine with a juice made at 3 mg, and then I add in some unflavored high-nic to bring it up a few milligrams. I am probably vaping mine with about 6-9 mg/mL.
The inone variable wattage
The Infinite inone is a pod vape more along the lines of a Mistic Pod Mod 2.0, or even a XOLO, much more than the likes of a JUUL, Cync or MyJet. The inone has got a lot of power in comparison to those other popular, stealth pod-vape systems.
Being able to easily adjust the wattage of the inone system (by just pressing the up and down buttons) makes this unlike any other pod system out there, even in comparison to the other pod systems that have more power than your typical cigalike. Being able to adjust the wattage makes this device a real contender for a universally appreciated device since it’s not a one-size-fits-all platform.
Performance: flavor and vapor of the inone
For all the things the inone has goign for it, its the performance that won me over.
I can use the inone at virtually any wattage within the coil’s range, and I am all good. If I want more heat and more vapor, I turn it up. If I want less, I turn it down. But note, the inone puts out a lof of vapor for this kind of device. You could probably get away with using it as a stealth vape, as long as you don’t draw too long or have the wattage up too high. If you do, it won’t be a stealth device as much as it will be a conversation starter.
But no matter how the vapor is, if it’s not got flavor to come along for the ride, it doesn’t interest me. The inone has got the flavor! It’s not like dripping with my preferred RDAs, but it’s a very nice flavor that seems to not stop. What I mean is, I have tried to get a bad hit, and the only way I have gotten close to a hit that was unsatisfactory was to turn up the wattage beyond the coil’s capability. And it stands up well to chain vaping.
In general, the inone performs very well. I prefer the 2.0-ohm coil at about 15 watts with a 50/50 blend. But the 1.6-ohm coil works well too, it just can give more clouds and maybe a touch less flavor. But, I think the edge goes to the 2.0-ohm coils for flavor (though it’s likely splitting hairs).
I have been on a search to find an AIO MTL device that would consistently satisfy me. Just going off of my brief time with this device, I have been satisfied. Since I first opened the box, it has been my go-to device (but that happens at least once every other month with a new product).
I can look past the clumsy refill methods because I dig the vape so much. I only hope that it doesn’t disappoint me like so many of the other pod vapes ended up doing. Who knows, it probably will. Just being realistic.
But, assuming this is how it will always be, and no issues arise…
Highly recommended (for the MTL vaper, the newbie, or any vape that loves the idea of cool-lookin’ backups that actually vape well!)
