First Impression Out of the Box
DeucesJack: What’s up everybody? DeucesJack at vapinginsider.com. We’re back with another kit review. Check it out, man. Eleaf has really been knocking it out in the park lately. They’ve been coming up with some nice devices, some nice kits and let me tell you something. They’ve been up in their build quality game. They really have.
Today, I have the Eleaf Lexicon Kit for you. It’s got that Ello Duro tank on there. Same thing as that Ello Vate, I don’t know, they’re kind of interchangeable, same kind of tank. Really good tank. I’ve reviewed it before and other reviews.
Let’s cut down low. Let me show you the whole mod, the whole kit, the menu system, the whole 9 yards. Then we’ll come back on top. We’re going to talk about it a little bit, cons, pros, we’re out of here. See you down low.

Alright everyone, welcome to the down low portion of this video. Today, we’re going over the Eleaf Lexicon Kit. check it out. Little bit of Social Media on this side, barcode, nothing there, Eleaf there, authenticity check right there. On the back, it lets you know what comes in the kit. You get a Lexicon mod, an Ello Duro atomizer, an HWN .2 ohm coil, HWM .15 ohm coil, a USB cable, 2 user manuals and spare parts. This is a 235 watt mod. Let’s check it out. Let’s see what we got here.
File that to the side, take the box off, mod comes out. Let’s take this tray out for a second and put it to the side. Let’s we what we have underneath here. What we have here is a big box inside a bigger box. What do we have in here? We have a USB cable, we have a bunch of paperwork, we have a warning card. File that to the side. We have a coil card. Pause that if you want to read it. We have an Ello Duro quick start guide and a Lexicon user manual. Also, we have a bag of spare gaskets and spare O rings. That’s all gone to the side.
Let’s take a look at the actual tank. This is the Ello Duro tank. Really like the frost thing and the way they match the drip tip. Nice job on that. This is a top fill slider style tank. No locking mechanism. That’s going to be a con. Nice wide board 810 style drip tip but it’s the 810 drip tip with the O rings on the drip tip itself. Nice and tall, very comfortable. Nice capacity on this ktank. We got dual airflow on the bottom. That’s the bubble glass. It also comes with a straight glass spare that I’ll show you in a minute. Stopper on both sides, plenty of airflow. On the bottom, it says Ello Duro Tank with a gold plated 510 and stainless steel threading around it, Eleaf on the bottom over here.
In order to change the coil, all you do, open it up, open the base up like that. This is the M coil, the HWM coil, .15 ohms, good from 55-100 watts. It’s a mesh style coil in there. In order to change the coil, you simply twist, pull it ou. Machining is very nice on this. The only thing I don’t like, these rough edges over here. Here is the coil itself. Again, no mention of material on the coil. That’s going to be a con as well.
Here is the spare straight glass right here. That’s also going to be a con. They should have included a spare bubble glass. Why would I want to go from a bubble to a straight? That’s a downgrade in my opinion.
Here is the spare coil. This is the HWN .2 ohm coil, good for 40-80 watts. You can see it’s got a different type of mesh material in there but they’re kind of the same. It’s just a little different in the way they’re configured. The actual mesh is configured but very close.
Let’s put this tank back together and I’ll show it to you on the actual mod itself. But before we even do that, let’s get into the top side of the mod.
We have a gold plated spring loaded 510. I would call it a stiff spring with a medium throw. 2 star screws holding the top plate on top here. You have a bunch of LEDs going around the actual mod. I like this little triangular cut out here. I think it gives it a nice shape. Here is your screen right here. It is a fingerprint magnet. Here are your Up and Down button. USB charge update port, it does charge at 2 amps.here is your Fire button. Kind of like a diamond shape. They did a nice job on that. Some Lexicon branding here. A little bit of a brushed look on it but like I said, it is a fingerprint magnet.
In order to get to the batteries, push down, pull out. On the battery door, you can see we have some clear battery indicator markings also labeled 1 and 2. We also have gold plated button style contacts. We take them out a second. If you look down the tube, you’ll see clear battery indicator markings as well. Those gold plated contacts are spring loaded.
Load your batteries in like so. Push the battery door down and push it in. there’s also some venting present over here. Now you’ll see some lights. Has a whole bunch of different lights, button lights up, everything.
Here is your screen right here. 1 2 3, now you can scroll between Wattage mode, Nickel, Titanium, Stainless Steel, M1. M2, M3 and back to Wattage mode. Now, 1 2 3, put it in to Temperature Control mode, you’ll see the screen lay out. Individual battery cells over here, Wattage over here, Puffs, Resistance, Temperature, Mode and what you’re in, celcius or farenheit. Now, if you want to change your Wattage in Temperature Control mode, you click the Fire button 4 times. Now you’ll notice, your wattage is there. You can go up and down from there. Scrolls in 1 watt increments. Let’s go back to Power mode, right there. Now in Wattage mode, it scrolls in 1 watt increments up to 235 watts. It does not round robin.
If you want to enter into the other parts of the menu system, you hit the Plus button and the Fire button together and that will bring you to this menu system. Over here, that’s your Subpara, you can pick whether you want to show Time, Amp or Puffs. You can see I have 996 puffs. Over here, you can pick your preheat and how long you wanted to power on that preheat for.
This is your Logo screen. I leave it off. This is your Stealth mode, on or off. I leave it off. We did the preheat. Logo, we went over already.
Here’s your screen color mode. You can pick what color you want your lights to be. Here’s the mode for the lights. You can have them either like that in that pattern, in this pattern, or in this signal pattern. This is how long you want your light show to be on. If you want it to be on for 10 minutes always or off. That’s what it says in the manual. This is your version, tell you what version software you have, or firmware. This is your battery, tells you what each individual cell is doing and back to your preheat setting.
Now, if you want to exit out, we exit out that way. And in order to lock the mod, you hold the Up and Down button together and the keys are locked. Hold it together again and the keys are unlocked.
And that’s basically it, folks. That’s the whole menu system for the Lexicon by Eleaf. Let me put it all together for you. Give you one quick look at it, how it looks like when it’s all put together. It’s actually a good looking set up, I think so at least. There you go. That’s what it looks like with the bubble glass. Nice looking set up. Lights are really really nice. This is one of the few mods that I don’t mind the lights on.
Let’s cut back on top, let’s talk about it a little bit, cons, pros and then we’re out of here. See back on top.
Alright everyone, welcome back on top. You just saw the Eleaf Lexicon Kit up close and personal. Nice kit, man. 235 watts, scrolls in 1 watt increments. Easy menu system. I like the shape. I’m digging that cut out they did on the corner there. Lights, if you like lights, man. Lights galore!
Let’s get into the official cons and pros.
First con is going to be that Plus and Minus button as you saw it down low. They’re really close together. If you got like fat knockers like finger, you can hit them both at the same time very easily. I also think the display is very small in proportion to the size of the actual mod. I wish the screen was bigger. We’re going to give them a con on that.
Another thing I really don’t like about this mod is it has an ‘Always keep the lights on’ option. First of all, that’s a stupid option. It’s ridiculous to keep them on all the time. There’s no reason for it. And the other thing is it could be dangerous because I don’t know if it’s got a cell cut off for that and if it can drain your batteries dangerously low. I wouldn’t recommend that anybody use that option. Eleaf, I would highly recommend you do an update and take that option off the board.
Other con is going to be, there’s no material on the coils. Eleaf, you got to get with the program. You got to start putting your coil material on the coils.
And the other con is going to be, typical Eleaf TC. it kind of sucks with dual coils. It throws you out of TC all the time. It’s ok with a single coil but for some reason, with dual coils it just doesn’t seem to work right. Eleaf, if you’re not going to do TC correctly, then just make Power mode mods. And I say that to any manufacture who doesn’t do TC correctly. If you’re not going to do it properly, then just make it a Power mode mod because it’s frustrating already. This has been going on for years. Fix it.
The last con I’m going to give it is the tank. It doesn’t have a locking option. There’s no lock on that slider. If you’re a real world vaper like me and you’re carrying this thing around all the time, it’s very easy for this thing to slide open in your pocket and dump juice all over you. If you’re going to do a top fill, you got to have some type of locking mechanism. They’re going to get a con for that.
Let’s get on to the pros because there’s quite a few of them.
First pro is going to be, great tank, great flavor, plenty of airflow. I like the way they matched it up with the mod itself with the glass and the drip tip. Great job on that.
I think the coils are fantastic. They’re going to get a pro for that. I like the mesh and the net coil, really nice job.
Love the clear battery indicator markings on the door and the inside of the door. They made them in white. Pro on that.
Love this angled top plate, where they cut the corners off and put some lights in there. I dig it. I like it. Like the form factor, easy to finger fire. Easy to thumb fire. We’ll give them a pro on that.
Build quality, Eleaf’s stepping up their game on the build quality department. I’m going to give them a pro on that.
I’m going to give them a pro that it comes available in great colors, pro for that.
I like the Fire button. It’s fantastic. It’s big, it’s clicky, it’s tactile feeling. Great job on the Fire button, pro on that.
I’ll give them a pro because the TC is ok with the single coil but for some reason, it doesn’t do well with dual coils. But I’ll give them a pro for the TC with the single coil.
Solid battery door, put this thing down, no issues. It doesn’t pop open, pro.
Let’s give them a pro on the easy menu system. This menu system is easy, very intuitive.
I’m also going to give them a pro on the lights. That’s right. You guys know I normally don’t like lights. On this mod, I don’t mind them. They’re not that bad. They are highly configurable. I like that. I can shut them off if I want to. They’re going to get a pro on that.
Overall though, I got to tell you. I really do enjoy this kit. I’ve been using it for quite a few months now, 2 or 3 months now. It’s fantastic.
