Alright everyone we’re back on top with the Vaptio Super Bat kit. We got the Frogman XL tank on top.Let’s not spend a lot of time talking about it. We’ll talk about it more in the cons and pros because there’s a lot to go over on this one. So I want to get right into the cons and pros.
First Impression Out of the Box
DeucesJack: What’s up everybody? Deucesjack at vapinginsider.Com. Today we have the Vaptio Super Bat kit, 220 watts. Kind of got Batman thing going on here. Kind of got some lights. Check it out.Not bad. Also got some leds here for the eyes. I love the looks of it when I took it out of the box. I was like, “Wow, this is kind of cool!”. Always been a comics book fan myself. Never really a dc guy but I can get into Batman and Superman.
Let’s cut down low. Let’s check it out. Let me show you everything up close and personal. We’ll go over the light, the menu system, the tank, the whole nine yards. See you down low.

- 1x Frogman Tank
- 1x Frogman W2 coil
- 1x Frogman W8 coil
- 1x Replacement Glass tube
- 1x USB cable

Alright everyone, welcome to the down low portion of this video. Today we’re going to go over the Vaptio Super Bat 221 watt kit with the Frogman XL tank.
Here’s a look at the packaging. There you go, some barcodes over there. You can see I have the black one. On the back, it tells you what’s included in the package. You get one 220 watts Super Bat mod, a Frogman with a W2 coil, usb cable, replacement glass tube, Frogman XL tank, Frogman W8 coil, and a user manual.
Let’s open this up and see what it looks like. Got a ton of paperwork here. We have a user manual, we have a frogman tank user manual we have a filling instruction card, and a certificate of inspection with a warranty card on the other side.
Here is the mod. Let’s take that out. Below the mod, you have a nice usb cable. Here is your spare glass, and here is your tank with your spare coil and spare o-rings.
Let’s take a look at the coil inside the tank first and then we’ll go on to the next coil. I’m not crazy about that Frogman stuff on the glass. I really don’t like it. A little bit of Vaptio branding, proprietary type of drip tip but it is a 510 so other 510 will fit in there but they might not look great. The thing looks a lot wider than it actually is.
A little bit of half a twist in order to get the top cap off. You can see it has this little- these big fill ports with these silicon like flappers there that keep the juice inside just in case your top cap comes off. I do like that. Machining is very well done.
We have air flow adjustment on the bottom. We have one two three. What you do on one happens on the other two. On the bottom we have ‘Designed by Vaptio’. We have a stainless steel 510 with an insulator ring around it. Stainless steel threading on the sides. In order to change the coil, you simply give it a twist and there is your coil.
Let’s take a quick look at the coil. This is the W8 coil, ohms out at 0.15. There’s no material on the coil but it is in the manual that it’s made out of Kanthal. There you go. Baby Beast compatible coils. You can use Baby Beast coils in this tank.
The spare coil that comes with it is the W2 coil, ohms out at 0.4 Ohms and it is also made out of Kanthal.
Nice lots of cotton in there, nice juice ports on both coils. They perform very nicely just like a Baby Beast coil would and they are Baby Beast compatible.
Let’s put this all back together and I will show you what it looks like on the mod towards the end of the down low portion.
Let’s get into the mod itself. This is the Super Bat. Kind of has a Batman theme here, I guess. Here is your plus and minus buttons, usb charge port right there. It does have a stainless steel plate on top with a gold plated 510 pin that I would call very stiff with a very short throw. See that little indentation right there? It goes around the whole thing. It does have a firing bar right here. It is nice and clicky. There is some bat insignia there. I guess they are going for that Batman look. Over here you have some super bat branding, some more batman type of look with some LEDs over here.
On the bottom is where you load your batteries. Push down and pull out. You will see they are marked clearly, A & B. Button style gold-plated contacts there. You’ll see that there’s – I don’t know if you can see that- but there are clear battery indicator markings on the bottom with a gold-plated spring-loaded battery contacts. So far, all my batteries have fit pretty nicely in there. I wish they put the markings on the top, on the back on the battery cover as well. That’s going to be a con.
Put your batteries in like that. Close the door and you will see the lights start to light up.
There is your screen right there. You also have 2 LEDs over here, vaptio branding over here, cells A and B over here, your Wattage, your Puff Counter in seconds, Volts, Mode and Ohms. A little bit of Vaptio branding over here. It’s got that speedometer style look. Nice colorful screen but kind of useless in outdoor daylight conditions. You just can’t see it it’s not right enough.
In order to go to the menu system, 123. Now you can scroll with your plus and minus button between Mode, Setting, Theme or Back.
Let’s go into Mode. In here you can pick between Variable, Wattage, TC, Smart mode, CCW mode, or CCT mode -which is basically curves for a Wattage and Temperature Control- and Bypass mode right there.
Let’s go into TC mode. You have a choice between Stainless steel, Nickel, Titanium and Nichrome, M1, M2, M3.
Let’s go into Stainless steel. You can see, where my wattage used to be, is where my temperature is. In order to go back to power mode, you just go back to Variable wattage mod like so.
In Smart mode, you have a choice between Auto, High, Normal or Soft. It’s kind of cool. This is basically your Preheat. You can do Soft, Normal or High which is hard. And then it’s got Auto which basically it will do, it will pick is the wattage for you according to your resistance. It’s kind of on the conservative side but it’s good for newbies who might not know where to start. So that not a bad feature.
I’ll go into the settings menu right here. We have Systems settings, Product info and Restore.
Mode settings, this is where you can set your modes, TC, CCW or CCT.
TC mode, you can set the unit. There is your TC data right there. This is where you can adjust your wattage in TC mode. A little bit confusing. I wish there was an easier way to do that.
Now back to the settings. You can do vape time. You can do sleep time. You can have a puff manager. Here are your led settings. You can fix the color. You have a choice between red, yellow, blue, purple, green and white. You can pick your LED mode. You can have it Breathing, Always on, Multicolor, Puff change or ‘Only on when you’re puffing’.
I like to do the puff change. This part is your theme. It’s only got one theme. There’s supposed to be another thing coming. I tried to update this mod. I couldn’t get it to do that. And here is your Back button.
As far as the update goes, I couldn’t get this thing to load on my computer so I am not sure how upgradeable it actually is. I couldn’t get it done and I tried for about an hour.
Let me show you what it looks like all put together. That’s how it looks like altogether. Not a bad looking mod. They didn’t do a bad job on it. I am not sure how I feel about the the Batman branding thing.
Let’s go back on top let’s talk about it, cons, pros. We’re out of here. See you back on top.
Cons – Tank
Let’s start up with the tank first. My problem with the tank is the fact that this drip tip, even though it’s a 510, its propriety because it’s got that platform in there. I really wish they would have made the top cap on it. That’s really my only con. In all reality, what this is, is this is a Baby Beast tank that felt better than the Baby Beast. It really is and it takes Baby Beast coils.
Pros – Tank
So that’s going to be a pro. It’s a better machined Baby Beast compatible tank.
I’m also going to give them a pro on the capacity. The capacity is really nice on it.
Going to give them a pro for the coil performance. The coil performance is fantastic on it. You get nice flavor and clouds.That will be a pro also.
And I’m going to give them a big pro on that half a twist top cap in the down low. You just kind of give it a little half a twist and it pops off.
Cons – Mod
Now let’s get into the cons and pros on the actual mod itself.
First con is going to be, this thing is way too inconsistent. My resistance has been all over the place in any mode I put it in. That’s a fail, Vaptio. I am very surprised at you.
Second is going to be, the TC sucks. TC is horrible it just is. No getting around it.
Also going to give them a major con for the power mode inconsistency.
I’m also going to give them a con for the screen. The screen is beautifully laid out but it’s way too dark. It’s useless on outdoor daylight conditions. That’s going to be a con.
Menu system also, I think that the menu system is just a little busy. It’s not intuitive.
Let’s also give them a con on the fact that they did not center the 510 on this.
Let’s give them a con on the- I’ll now amend this con because in the down low, I said there is no battery markings on the battery door. And you want to know something? I looked real closely and they are there but they are extremely faint. So they are going to get a con for that as well.
I’m going to give them a con for the sleep mode. This stupid thing turns off all the time. I am constantly clicking it back on. If you leave it sitting in more than 10 to 15 minutes. Absolutely ridiculous. Vaptio, if you are watching this, don’t ever put that in your chipset again. When I pick up my mod I want to hit the button and vape. If I can’t do that, it really pisses me off.
The other con I’m going to give it is that this thing is a bitch to upgrade. I went on their website. I tried to download the software and upgrade. I consider myself somewhat tech-savvy especially for my age and I couldn’t get this thing to upgrade. I don’t understand why companies do this. You want to do upgradable firmware on your mods- this is for all the vape companies out there- so I can download the software, I plugin my mod, the software recognizes my mod and ask me if I want to upgrade or not. That’s the way every upgrade should be done. Anything less than that is BS.
Now let’s get into the pros. There’s a few of them not too many.
Pros – Mod
First pro I’m going to give it is the lights are customizable. You can program them. That’s kind of cool.
I’m going to give them a pro on the looks. If you are into that Batman thing, you’re a dark knight follower, you’re going to like it.
Let’s give them a pro on the build quality. Build quality is solid. It feels solid.
We’ll also give them a pro on the big screen. Nice big screen, well laid out
I’m going to give them a pro on the nice fire bar. That fire bar is nice and clicky.
And I’m going to give them a pro on the solid battery door, the way it closes and stays shut. You can put this mod down and the battery door does not bounce open. Good job on that, Vaptio.
That’s it folks. That’s really all I got for you today. This one I got to chuck up the deuces to. It’s a no go in my book. Really surprised at Vaptio because they have been quietly coming out with some great mods. I love that Wall Crawler mod that they did.
