Ehpro Fusion 200 Review

Ephro Fusion 200 Review

Ehpro Fusion 200

The Ephro Fusion 200 does hit hard and fast for a regulated mod. In power mode, this thing comes very close to the 200 watts that it advertises.

First Impression Out Of The Box:

I’m not exactly sure where I got this mod from. It came along with my Artery Pal which I have already reviewed. I used to do reviews for Ehpro but they seem to have lacked any type of significant distribution. Hopefully, this is a sign of the times and Artery will start distributing their products. Please do not confuse this mod with the Fusion 2-in-1 that has been reviewed all over the place. This is a different mod and it only has one power setting and no tank.

The mod comes in some really nice packaging. Once you remove the cardboard sleeve, it reveals a black box that has some colorful lettering on it. Open up the black box and sitting in a foam insert on the left side of the box, you will find your Fusion 200 watt mod. On the right side is where you will find the USB cable for internal charging. Aside from the usual manuals and paperwork, that is all that is in the box.

What’s In The Box:

  • Ehpro Fusion Mod
  • USB Cable
  • User Manual

From Top To Bottom:

The 510 on the Fusion 200 has a stainless steel plate above it and this mod will fit 28mm atomizers without any overhang. 30 mm atomizers will have approximately 1 millimeter overhang on the front. They don’t look too bad but it’s definitely too much overhang from my OCD. I just don’t understand why you would make a mod like this and not center the 510 pin. If they would have centered the 510, this mod would have been a hell of a lot better. God knows the mod is tall enough. You always hear mod manufacturers complaining that it’s tough to center the 510 because they actually have to make the mod taller. Well, this mod is actually taller than most dual battery mods on the market today, so why not just center to 510?

The 510 in itself is made out of copper but it is gold plated and it is spring loaded. It has a very long, loose throw to it. I would have definitely preferred it if the 510 was a little stiffer but so far, I have had no issues with it as far as reading resistances go. The threading around the 510 is stainless steel and pretty smooth. I have had no issues with any of my atomizers not sitting flush on this mod.

The best way I can describe the shape of this mod is it looks like a taller, squared-off version of the Asmodus Minikin V2. With the screen facing you, on the right and left sides of the mod, you will see some battery venting towards the top. It also has a two-tone color that is black and stainless steel. On both sides of the mod, there is some Ehpro and 200 Fusion branding. On both sides of the mod, there is also a light right next to the venting. I’m not really sure what that light does and to be honest with you, it looks like more of an afterthought than anything else. I did notice that when I plug the mod in to charge it, it does light up blue while charging. It also lights up green while I’m vaping. So I guess, it’s some type of charge indicator but it really doesn’t make a lot of sense to have it on there, since you have a full battery meter on the screen.

The whole back of the mod is done in a glossy sort of brushed stainless steel. There are also these types of accents throughout the whole mod and I have to say that I really do like the black and stainless steel color combination. I am quite impressed with the way the finish has held up so far and the fact that shiny stainless steel tanks look really nice on this mod. You all know I’m pretty rough on my mods, So, if I say it is holding well, you know it is.

The battery door is located on the bottom of the mod and it is the push in, push out, type of door. There is a little divot on the exterior, that allows you to get a grip in order to push the door open. There is also some Ehpro branding on the bottom of the mod located above the battery door. Once you open the door, you will notice that there are two gold-plated, button-style battery contacts. Above each battery contact, there is a battery indicator marking. With the batteries out of the mod, if you look straight down the battery tubes, you will see 2 spring loaded, gold plated, battery contacts. The battery compartment is made out of plastic. So far, all of my cells that fit into this compartment nice and snug without any battery door rattle or movement.

On the front side of the mod is where you will find the fire button, the screen, the up and down buttons, and the USB port. The fire button on this mod is pretty big. It’s big and easy to find but I wouldn’t exactly call it clicky or tactile. It’s not really mushy either, it’s just sort of big and sloppy. I feel like when I hit it, it has a very hollow sound and it’s kind of all over the place. It is comfortable to use but at the same time, I think Ehpro could have done a much better job on the fire button.

Below the fire button, we do have a big beautiful color screen. I really like the way they did the screen and I love the layout of it. It seems to have a really well organized look to it and the font is very clear. On the screen, you will be able to see your mode, preheat, wattage, temperature, battery life, volts, resistance, and puff counter. You are able to choose the color of your font. The choices are yellow, orange, red, white, and black. When you choose the black option, it reverses the screen so that the background is white and the font is black. This is a kind of handy feature especially in direct sunlight conditions. I really wish a lot more manufacturers would include this daylight condition option on their boards.

Located below the screen, we have the up and down button. They are oval in shape and black in color. They both have a really nice look to them but they also suffer the same fate as the fire button. They feel hollow and a little bit on the sloppy side. Ehpro definitely needs to up their button game. Below the up and down buttons, there is the USB charge port. I have not been able to find out any information as to whether this is a firmware upgradeable mod or not. Since I can’t find that information, we will go with the assumption that it is not. The charge port does charge your mod at 1.8 amps. It’s close enough to say this mod has 2 amp charging.

The Look, Feel, and General Aesthetics Of The Mod:

When you first take this mod out of the box, it’s not exactly stunning. This mod actually takes a while to grow on you when it comes to the looks of it. When I first saw it, I honestly thought for a second that it might be a triple battery mod because it was so tall and big. I do like the color scheme on it and I love the stainless steel accenting. I think it just looks phenomenal on the mod even if it is a fingerprint magnet. I also like the way shiny stainless steel tanks look on this mod. I put my Vandy Vape Triple tank on this mod and it just looks phenomenal. It’s a real beastly set up when you combine those two.

I’m also very impressed with the finish of the mod. I have been using it as my beater mod for well over a month now and I have to say, it’s held up really nicely. It has a couple of little dings and scratches here and there but for the most part, it looks like it just came out of the box. It may not feel like it in your hand but it looks like the build quality on this is actually really good.

The Board:

There’s really not a lot of info available on the board. I am assuming that it is a proprietary board by Ehpro. It does have a full temperature control suite and it will TC all of the popular wires on the market today. Along with TC capabilities, it also has a TCR function with memory settings, preheat settings, and a bypass mode. Of course, like most of today’s mods, it does have all of the safety features built into it. Those safety features include over current, over charging, over heating, short circuit, reverse polarity, and over discharging. The board does have a maximum output of 200 watts and it will fire down as low as .1 ohms.

The Menu System:

  • Click the fire button 5 times turn the mod on or a lock it.
  • Click the fire button 3 times to switch between modes. Once in that submenu system, use the up and down button to navigate through your choices.
  • Click the fire button 4 times in order to change the color of your font.
  • Once you are in the TC, you cannot go back and change the wattage while you are in TC. You have to click the fire button 3 times and go back through the TC menu in order to change the wattage. It’s not that big of a deal but it’s more of an annoyance than anything. I wish they would have included some kind of shortcut, in order for you to be able to change the wattage while you are in TC mode.

How Does It Vape?

In power mode, I have to give Ehpro credit, this thing comes very close to the 200 watts that it advertises. I did vape it next to my triple battery DNA mod and I have to say, it’s probably about 10 to 15 watts shy of the full 200 watts. While it may not do the full 200 watts, it is very close.

In TC mode, this thing is an absolute beast. It actually does really good TC, especially when you vape it next to a DNA or Yihi mod. I was very impressed by the TC vape that I received off of this mod. Definitely one of the better non DNA or non Yihi chips on the market today. It’s probably part of the reason why it has actually stayed in my rotation for so long. It just vapes really well. I was so surprised at its TC performance that I actually threw more builds at it than I normally would, just to see if this chip would stumble and to be honest, it’s just as solid as can be.

Another pleasant surprise about this mod is the fact that it does hit hard and fast for a regulated mod. There is virtually no delay after you hit the fire button. Not only that, but it also seems to ramp up big coils pretty easily. It does that without feeling overpowered. I have vaped other mods that ramp up big coils fast, but they always felt a bit overpowered. The Fusion 200 does not feel that way at all. It feels accurate but it also just ramps those big coils up very quickly. Performance-wise, this is a very impressive mod.

What Would Make It better:

  • Better Buttons
  • Center That 510
  • Slim The Mod Down

It is times like these that I really hate doing this section of a review. This mod has so much going for it in the performance department that I hate going through what would have made it better. There’s just a few things aesthetically, that could have definitely made this mod one for the ages had Ehpro been paying attention.

The buttons definitely have to go. To have a mod that performs this well with these cheap hollow feeling buttons is just a crime. I mean really, how hard is it to put good buttons on a mod? The buttons that are on there right now give it a very cheap feel and it just doesn’t coincide with the performance of the mod. Bad job, Ehpro!

I don’t know what is the matter with these manufacturers? I have to believe that they really don’t read reviews or watch them. How many times do people have to ask for a centered 510 pin? Especially on a mod like this. To not center the 510 when you had plenty of room inside is just a crying shame.

If you are going to go with a mod that does not have a centered 510 pin, then why is this thing so big for a dual 18650 mod? If that was your design, then why didn’t you just slim this thing down? You see some of the new mods coming out on the market today. Some of them are much smaller than the Fusion 200 and they take the same amount of batteries. I just feel like Ephro dropped the ball on all of these points. It’s almost like they can’t figure out what they want to be when they grow up.

Conclusion:

I had such a hard time with this review. The reason I had such a hard time is because while the mod isn’t bad looking, it’s not as aesthetically pleasing as I would like it to be. It also has some issues when it comes to the buttons. I just feel like it’s a great performing mod but aesthetically, it’s not firing on all cylinders. I would have loved to have seen Ehpro come up with a slimmer, nicer looking package for this chipset. It’s not horrible-looking but at the same time, the looks and size just don’t match the performance of the board.

I have been using it as my beater mod for a couple of months now and you know what, it’s perfect for that. One thing’s for sure, Ehpro should get right back to the drawing board and build a killer looking mod around this board because it is that good. If you are in need of a beater mod, then check this one out. It performs and it will hold up.

That’s the other tough thing about this review. I did Google this mod and it is very hard to find for sale. In fact, when you do Google it, most of your results are going to be for the 2-in-1 version of this mod. Again, that is a totally different mod and I have never reviewed it, so I don’t know if it performs as well as the one in this review. I have seen the Fusion 200 at a few sites for under $40. If that is the case, then this is an extreme value. If you can find this mod at that price point, then you are going to get a lot of bang for your buck. This one is DeucesJack approved, if you can find it.
