Chinese manufacturer Smoant appears to be on a quest to create mini pod variations of all its most iconic vape mods. After the Battlestar Child, they’ve now created a miniature Charon mod called (you guessed it!) the Charon Child. It’s basically a repackaged Battlestar Infant, however that’s not really unexpected, thinking about the advanced mods that influenced these pod systems were extremely comparable also. Anyways, here’s what I think of the Smoant Charon Baby vape pod:
A Take a look at the Contents
The new Charon Infant comes in an extremely similar plan to that of the Battlestar Child– a little cardboard box with an image of the device (in the color it is available in) on the front, and a list of contents, manufacturer contact information and some warnings, on the back.
Inside the packaging we have the Charon Infant pod system, and a box of accessories which includes a user manual, a USB Type-C charging cable, and an extra coil-head (one comes pre-installed in the refillable pod). It’s practically the specific same kit as the Battlestar Baby, consisting of the ingenious USB Type-C cable television that functions as a determining tape and lanyard.
Design and Construct Quality
From the original Charon TC218 to the more advanced Charon TS218 and Charon Mini, Smoant Charon vape mods have actually constantly been fairly complicated, so there was no chance for the maker to include their initial styles and functions into a much smaller sized, fundamental bundle. The Charon Infant doesn’t truly look like a Charon mod, simply like the Battlestar Child wasn’t a best reproduction of the Smoant Battlestar mod, but it does have some components that hint at the device that motivated it.
The Charon Infant pod system determines 73mm x 44mm x 19mm, which makes it even smaller sized than the Battlestar Infant, and just slightly thicker. It’s made of the very same zinc alloy as Smoant’s other pod system, and includes the exact same CPR ornamental panels that not only look spectacular, however prevent fingerprint marks.
On the bottom of the Smoant Charon Baby, we have a Type-C charging port. I like that they updated to Type-C, but I hate it when makers put the charging port on the bottom, as that implies I always need to set my mod on its side to charge, which increases the risk of scratching, specifically with such shiny ornamental panels.
Other mentionable information about the Charon Baby include the lanyard holder, and the LED battery indication near the bottom. Aside from that, the mod is a compact, one piece device.
The removable pods are the same as the one utilized on the Battlestar Child, so I will not enter into excessive information about them. They are a little tinted, hold up to 2ml of e-liquid, and include the same exchangeable PnP (plug ‘n Play) coil-heads as the Battlestar Infant. The pods are interchangeable and so are the coil-heads, so if you happen to own one of these pod systems, you can use both the pods and the coil-heads with the other. To fill up the pods, simply pop open the fill port on the side (covered with a rubber plug), fill it up, and let it sit for a couple of minutes.
The Smoant Charon has basically the exact same construct quality as the Battlestar Infant, so if you liked that one, you’re probably going to like this one.
Battery Life and Efficiency
Not a lot to go over in this section, as looking at the specifications sheet of both the Battlestar Charon Infant and Battlestar Baby, the two devices are identical. They both have a decent battery capability of 750mAh, max power output of 15W, and are powered by the same version of Smoant’s exclusive Ant chip. The charging rate is the same also (0.8 A), as is the full charging time (about an hour).
Both devices can be utilized in passthrough mode, so if you wish to vape while they are charging, you can do so.
Performance-wise, again, there is no separating the Charon Child from its twin, the Battlestar Child. They both have the same power output, use the exact same pods and coil-heads, so the performance equals. You get a satisfying, if rather loose mouth-to-lung (MTL) vape with the 1.2 Ω Ni80 coil-head, and a restrictive direct lung hit, in addition to considerably more vapor with the 0.6 Ω mesh coil-head. Both coil-heads produce good taste, absolutely nothing too outstanding, however definitely ok for this type of product.
For a draw-activated pod system, the Smoant Charon Infant activates the battery very quick, and the power ramp-up time is super-fast. It’s not the most sophisticated pod system on the marketplace, not by a long-shot, however it’s not designed to be, and the few things it’s expected to do it does very well.
For more information on the performance and battery of these gadgets, take a look at my evaluation of the Smoant Battlestar Child.
The Smoant Charon Infant is basically a repackaged version of the Chinese company’s Battlestar Infant pod system. They have the same technical specifications, utilize the very same pods and coil-heads, so it’s not surprise that they carry out essentially the same. If you already own among them and you’re not into collecting pod systems, I would hand down the other, however if you remain in the marketplace for a compact, lightweight pod system with a simple-to-use automated switch, the Charon Baby is a quite good device.
Anyways, here’s what I believe about the Smoant Charon Child vape pod:
