First Impression out of the Box

DeucesJack: What’s up, everyone! DeucesJack at Today, I got another kit for you. Today, I have the Desire Designs Mad Mod kit with the M Tank included. Yeah man, I’ll tell you what, this is kind of like a throwback mod. Kind of reminds me of one of my first mods, that old Cig 75 TC. Got that square shape like it. Kind of has that same feel to it. 108W, 21700 mod. Comes with an 18650 adapter. Available in silver, red, purple, black and blue. But the nice thing about the colors, you don’t see it with the black one that I have but on the one downlow, you’ll see the tank is two-toned and it matches the actual mod.

Let’s dive down. Let me show it to you up close and personal then we’ll come back on top. We’re going to vape on it and talk about it for a bit. See you down low.

What’s In The Box

  • 1 Desire 108W Mad Mod
  • 1 M-Tank
  • 1 18650 Converter Sleeve
  • 1 USB Charger
  • 1 Accessories Packet

All right, everyone! Welcome to the down low portion of this video. Today we’re going to be going over the Desire Design Mad Mod M Tank kit, I guess. Quick tour around the box. Got the silver one over here. On the back, battery capacity 21700 or 18650, 5W-180W, fires down as low as 0.08 ohms. Temperature control range of 200 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. In the box we get a Mad mod, an M-tank, an 18650 converter accessory packet, warranty card, manual, glass tank, USB charger, 0.4 ohm regular coil, 0.15 ohm mesh coil. Here is your scratch and check.

Let’s open this up and see what we have. There’s the silver mod. We’re going to put that to the side for now. Here is your 18650 battery adapter with a micro USB charging cable for updates and charging. Here is your spare parts bag with spare o-rings and a 510 drip tip adapter. Here is your spare glass for your tank. Here is your 0.15 ohm mesh coil, good for 50W-90W. See the mesh inside there? Nice bunch of cotton. Big wicking ports over here. A little bit of Mad Mod Desire branding. No coil material on there, that will be a con. Here is your Mad Mod user manual, file that to the side and here is your warranty card. File that to the side.

From Top To Bottom

The Tank

Here is your M-tank, very very good looking tank. Has a very industrial look to it. I’m really digging it. I like this metal cage cover here with all these nice cutouts. Really nice job. Heavy knurling on the bottom here for the AFC. AFC has stoppers on both ends and is very smooth. You have dual airflow slots on the bottom. Whatever you adjust on one side happens on the other. On the bottom of the tank, we have some M-tank branding designed by Desire Design. Also some serialization over here. Gold-plated 510 connection with an insulator ring around it and some smooth threading around it as well.

On the top side of the mod, we got a two-tone thing going on here. A little bit of knurling here. This is where you push in order to access your top fill port. Needle-nosed bottle only, bullnose bottles are going to get messy but it’s got a nice resistance to it. Drip tip is an 810 style drip tip with the o-rings on the outside of the drip tip. Other smoke style drip tips will fit in there nice and snug. In order to change the coil, like every other sub ohm tank, you give it a nice twist on the bottom, and out comes your coil with the base of your tank. The metal sleeve also comes off and there is your glass section that can be replaced with the spare one that I showed you.

Desire Mad Kit Review

Here is your regular coil that comes with the tank. This is the 0.4 ohm coil good for 35-55W. You can see it’s just a regular Baby Beast sort of coil. Comes out just like any other coil, just like so. Threading on the inside is very smooth.

The Mod

Here is the mod itself. You can see some Mad Dog branding over here. It’s not that bad it’s a little big but it’s not that bad because it’s the same color. On the front side of the mod, we have a round fire button with a nice clicky feel to it. Here is your screen, minus plus button.

Desire Mad Kit Review

On the top of the mod, we have the top plate held in place by four-star screws. Little bit of cut out over here on the stainless steel plate. For those of you who are still using atomizers to get their airflow from the bottom. Gold-plated, spring-loaded 510. What I would call a short throw with a medium spring to it. Threading around here is very smooth. So far, I have had no issues with any of my atomizers sitting flush on it.

On the bottom side of the mod is where you will find your battery door. They did this one a little differently. It’s kind of heavy duty and I’m kind of digging it. Also a serial number over here with some Desire branding. In order to open this, you simply pull the latch and you see the way that latch clips into there? I kind of like that man. It makes sure that the door stays closed. The door is spring-loaded. It just pops open on its own, really really digging that.

Desire Mad Kit Review

On the bottom, you can see that there are clear battery indicator markings. That gold-plated pin down there is also spring-loaded for your positive contact. On the battery door, here is your negative battery indicator marking. I wish that was clearer. This is a button style gold-plated contact. In order to load your batteries in, you simply put them in like this, pull the latch and boom. So far I have had no problems with any of my 21700 batteries fitting in here.

Five clicks on. You’ll notice the screen. I have battery meter, some Mad branding, some Desire branding, mode that I’m in, wattage, volts, amps and resistance. In order to scroll, once you starts scrolling, it scrolls in 1W increments up to 180W. It round robbins and it does scroll pretty fast once it gets going. I like that feature that once it gets going fast it scrolls in 1W increments.

Menu System

In order to access the menu system, three clicks and you’ll see variable voltage is blinking right now. Use your plus and minus buttons to scroll. You can get through TC NI, TC TI, TC SS, TC M1. There’s your wattage current feature and back to variable wattage.

Let’s go into stainless steel so I can show what it looks like. In stainless steel, you can scroll in 10-degree increments. If you want to adjust your wattage in TC, you click three times and then hit the minus button and you’ll see my wattage now blinking, now I can adjust my wattage. Hit the fire button to confirm. Hit the minus and fire button and it will clear your time if you hold it for two seconds. Hit the plus and minus button together and it locks the keys. Hit it again and it unlocks the keys.

And that’s it. That’s pretty much the whole menu system. Let me show you what it looks like all put together. Really really sharp looking kit. Definitely digging that two-tone action going on there where in matches the mod. I’ll be honest with you, I have the black one that I’ve been using. If I would have known this one looked as good as it did, I wouldn’t be putting this one in the giveaway but I’m a man of my words. So make sure you stay tuned to the end of this video.

Let’s cut back on top, let’s talk about it. We’re going to vape on it, cons, pros and we’re out of here as usual. See you back on top.

General Thoughts

All right everyone, we’re back on top with the Desire Mad Mod kit. 0.96 inch, all LED screen, fires down as low as 0.08, tank has 3 ml capacity, 25 ml in diameter. The mod is 96.2 x 37 x 25mm. So far, as you saw downlow, all my 21700s fit. I’m digging that cage thing around the tank. I like that. I like that protection, I like the cutouts that they did. I think they did a great job on that, on that metal part around the tank.

Desire Mad Kit Review

Let’s get into the cons and pros.


First con is going to be, like a lot of the Desire mods I’ve been reviewing lately, the TC is just not good. Sorry, it’s anemic at best. Desire, you’ve got to get to work on your TC. It’s basically just dry hit protection. You guys really need to work on that.

The other cons going to be, it’s got that, it’s got that old-school look right. And some people aren’t going to like that. I love it but there are people that are going to say, “It looks like a box mod from like four years ago.” But I like it because it’s nostalgia for me. But other people are not going to like that so I’m going to list it as a con.

The other con is going to be the regular coil that they included, the none mesh one, really didn’t last long man. Three or four days and it was toast. So far, the mesh one has been lasting a while now. I think I got six days on it and I have no significant loss of flavor or cloud production so it’s been pretty good so far. But the regular coil, I don’t know if I just got a bad one, or if all their coils are like that but I got to mention it.

Desire Mad Kit Review

Other cons is going to be, with the mesh coil, this tank with a 3 ml capacity, this thing rips through the juice so just be aware of that.

Another con is there’s no coil material on the coil. I don’t understand why China doesn’t get it. We have the right to know what type of material we’re vaping on. Put the coil material on the coil. I’m giving you a con for that.

Let’s move on to the pros because there’s plenty of them.


First pro is going to be that centered 510. Awesome job on that. You’re getting a pro for that.

I like the tall and slim form factor. I’m really digging the form factor. I like it. Yeah I know it’s just a box but it’s like a throwback mod for me and I like it. So I’m giving it a pro.

Nice clicky buttons. Those buttons have a nice clicky tactile feel to them. No rattle at all. No battery rattle, no button rattle, they’ll get a pro for that.

Great mesh coil. The mesh coil is flavorful and it chucks clouds. I’m giving them a pro for that.

Bright screen and I love the layout of the screen. They laid it out beautifully. It’s nice and bright, you can see it in all lightning conditions, pro on that.

Easy menu system, pro.

Firmware upgradeable, you’ll always get a pro for that on this channel.

Fires down to 0.08 ohms, big pro. Big big pro, I like that.

Included 18650 battery adapter, I like that as well. Will give you a pro for that.

All my 21700 batteries so far fit in here. I have no issues with any batteries. I got four or five different types and they all fit, no problem. Great job on that, Desire.

Great color choices. I love the color choices, love the two-tone tanks available. I think it’s just awesome. They did a great job on the colors. I’ll give them a pro.

Awesome top fill. The top fill here is clearly marked with that roughed up side and it’s got some nice resistance to it. You really got to push to get it open. It doesn’t have a locking feature but it’s tough enough so that it probably won’t open up in your pocket so I’ll give them a pro for that.

Desire Mad Kit Review

Comfortable drip tip. The drip tip on this thing, awesome. I love it, very very comfortable to vape on.

And I’m going to give them a pro for that great cage they put around that tank. I love that metal piece. Ithink it’s awesome.
