After the great success with the Puma 200W TC mod, Vapor Storm has come back with a new hard hitter...The Subverter!
The Subverter feels very nice in the hand. It is light, but still comes across as substantial. I really liked the rounded edges, and the slightly rubberised feel to this mod.
In terms of aesthetics, the mod could hardly be more different. It appears to be some sort of 3D printed material.
It's size is very average for a 2 x 18650, 200w device (90.2x55x27mm)
At this moment in time, there are 3 main colour variants – Red, Orange and Green. They all have replaceable, magnetic doors for added customisation.
The screen is another unique selling point, it is rather small, however it is in colour! It shows several different pieces of information such as the wattage, each of the batteries individual voltages, battery life and resistance.
This is a very stylish and unique looking device, but how does it perform?
The Subverter has a massive 0.05-3.00Ω range, so is ideal for those of you who prefer to vape on super low builds. Alongside the ohms, the voltage range is also very respectable, allowing for maximum customisation when it comes to vaping on this device.
This mod can also accommodate TC settings, using a variety of materials and a temperature range of 100C-300C
The battery life is average when in comparison to other mods of this calibre, however another cool feature of this tidy little device, is that it involves a faster charging time, and delivers power to each of the 18650s in a very balanced way, so if you are stuck without an external charger, then no need to worry (although I still highly recommend using an external charger!)
Actually vaping on this device was amazing, using an Ni80 0.17 ohm dual coil at 80watts, the hit was immense and I was not expecting to be as responsive as it was!

In terms of it's simplicity, this mod is probably one of the most easy to use high powered mods I have tried so far in my time as a reviewer - Up and Down arrows to change the wattage and a fire button to vape. Press the 'fire' button three times to scroll through curve mode, power mode and TC mode, 'fire' button again to select.
The cost of this device varies, depending on where you are looking, although the average range is probably between £40-£50. Well worth it in my opinion!
Now, for the Pros and Cons
Light, durable and hard hitting.
Wide range of compatible resistances.
The rubberised finish.
The satisyingly clicky fire button!!!
Only available in three different colours
Overall, I really enjoyed this device from Vapor Storm, and I am excited to see what else they may have in the pipeline!!!
