On top of the mod we have a spring loaded 510 connector and the lock button. The display and two adjustment buttons are placed on the main side, while the micro-USB slot on the right. You will need a high drain 18650 battery to power up the bad boy. Just pull the back cover / fire bar and slide in the cell with the positive pole facing downwards. Snap the panel back on and press the fire bar five consecutive times. This will power on the device.
The Vaporfi V-Grip 75W TC is the first mod from Vaporfi to feature a fire bar. The fire bar also acts as the battery door and it's held in place by very strong magnets. Has a nice feel to it and the button is responsive. You can lock or unlock the fire bar by sliding the top button left or right.

Performance and final words
In terms of performance the Vaporfi V-Grip 75W TC is a really good mod. It's a device intended for beginners and intermediate vapers and is simple to use, elegant and stealthy. It has a very responsive chip and we didn't encounter delays or any other issues during our tests. Battery life is average and mostly depends on the output power. At 25W we managed to get about 5h of moderate vaping. With a 0.4 Ohm coil at 50W we got around 3 hours from the same battery.
And yes, in this price range there are plenty of starter kit alternatives but Vaporfi have some pretty good selling points. They offer best in class warranty, money back guarantee, free shipping and 24/7 customer service.
