Share on:

The iCare Solo is a really great device to use with nicotine salts e-liquids. The compact all in one design combined with its 15W maximum output make this vaporizer one of the most versatile we tried. It doesn’t work with pods but rather has its own refillable e-liquid reservoir and replaceable coils. You can use any e-liquid brand with this tiny vape as long as the VG concentration is less than 70%.

Unlimited number of flavors

Works great with nic salts

Standard micro-USB charger

AIO design


Build quality is kind of flimsy

Prone to leaking, flooding and spitback

The iCare Solo is available in five colors and comes packed in a green cardboard gift box. Inside you will find the all in one vaporizer, two 1.1 Ohm IC coils, a USC charging cable and the user manual.

iCare Aesthetics

The design is pretty similar to some of the pod mods we reviewed before like the BO one and the JUUL vape. The iCare measures 104mm x 18mm x 11mm and is the first pod vape in this category to have a fire button. Eleaf probably did this in order to make it compatible with both mtl and li styles of vaping. The original iCare had some issues with this. This is because it activated automatically and the sensor had a bit of lag.

The Battery

The iCare Solo is powered by an internal 320mAh battery and this is enough for a couple of decent vape breaks at the office. It takes under 45 minutes to get it fully charged and since it uses standard micro-USB it’s compatible with the majority of Android phone chargers out there.

Right next to the battery there is an LED notification light which shows the status of your battery. When it’s green the battery is full, orange means you’re halfway through and red means it’s time to plug it in.

Eleaf IC coils

The iCare Solo uses standard Eleaf IC coils which are rated at 1.1 Ohms. These coupled with the 1.1 ml e-juice capacity and the 15W output power make the device ideal for nicotine salts ejuices. The coils are easily removed as soon as you take off the mouthpiece. This also acts as a tool. Same procedure when refilling with e-liquid.

The draw on this vape is not as tight as on other low output vapes or pod mods. It feels very comfortable and you can even do restrictive direct lung hits. However, It’s important not to chain vape from it since the coils simply cannot keep up with more than 2-3 consecutive pulls.

Final words on the iCare vape

The iCare Solo is a really surprising all in one personal vaporizer. It’s more than affordable, easy to use and since it has its own tank you’re not limited to just a handful of flavors. Built quality is more than decent, vapor production is above average and battery life is well within limits for this category of products. Great for beginners looking to try out nic salts. Like any other all in one vape, it does have some spitback but nothing too serious.

I love writing about my experiences and I’m usually the one testing all mods and vaporizers we receive. You will always find me fiddling with tank atomizers, building my own coils or steeping various e-liquid recipes.
