Pod devices started as an alternative to cigalikes. This is why some of the early pod systems were shaped like a cigarette. However, today, pod systems like the Eleaf Tance Max have upped the game by adding useful features. Eleaf is not a new vape brand, and the company did a pretty good job with the Tance Max.
The Tance Max is a stylish, chunky yet portable all-in-one pod system designed for the mouth-to-lung vaping. This is not a draw-activated device. There is a firing-button that you need to press when you want to take a draw. The Tance Max comes with replaceable coils. It also features an adjustable airflow control that allows you to customize your vaping experience.
The Eleaf Tance Max kit is packed with just about everything you need as a beginner-level vaper. You can purchase this device from the Eleaf World website within the range of $30.92-$36.80. The device is available in six different colours: Black, White, Geometry, Seashell, Trick, and Seablue.
The Tance Max comes in a cardboard box. The contents of the box include:
- 1x Tance Max Battery
- 1x Tance Max Cartridge
- 1x GS Air M 0.6ohm Mesh Coil Head (pre-installed)
- 1x GS Air S 1.6ohm Standard Coil Head
- 1x Type-C USB Cable
- 1x User Manual
The Tance Max is largely made of zinc-alloy, with its side panels made of colourful plastic. The device is a beautiful. Depending on the color you purchase, the design of the side panels will differ. The sides and edges of the Tance Max have a slightly curved trim that makes it very comfortable to hold despite its size.
The Eleaf Tance Max measures 101mm tall, 31mm wide, 20.5mm thick, and it weighs about 87g. The device may be a little above the average weight of a pod system, but it still feels great, not too heavy.
One of the reasons for the bigger size of the Tance Max is the power it’s carrying under its hood. The device is integrated with an impressive 1100mAh battery, which is capable of producing enough power for you to vape all day. The device comes with a Type-C USB cable for chrging it. You can recharge the Tance Max in under an hour.
The device’s fire-button is on its front. It is a slightly elevated rectangular button with a line in its centre where an LED shines through. The button is firm so it will not accidentally go off in your pocket. Also, it is quite simple to use. You simply click the firing button five times to power the device on or off, and you use a single click to fire. The LED indicator shows when the device is charging or firing. It also shows the current battery level of the device; Green indicates that the battery life is about 100%-60%, Blue means it is around 59-20%, and Red means it is below 20%. It continuously flashes red when it is time for a recharge.
Another amazing feature of the Tance Max is its pod capacity. The device can hold 4ml of e-juice (2ml for TPD). The Eleaf Pod is made of plastic that is slightly tinted, but you can still see the level of e-juice left. The pod also functions as the mouthpiece, and it is depressed on one side to give it a more natural and comfortable feel in your mouth. The pod is inserted at the top of the device and is connected securely using three magnetic contacts that hold the pod firmly in place.
Under the pod is where all the magic happens. The pods fill port is located here, and it uses a simple leak-free rotary-fill design. You just have to rotate the seal to get access to the pod, then you can refill with your preferred e-juice. The fill port is large enough to accommodate any bottle nozzles. The Tance Max uses replaceable coils. Under the pod is a threaded collar where the coils go. On the sides of the Tance Max are two large airflow inlets that feed into the airflow control ring which is also the threaded collar at the base of the pod. The 0.6ohm GS Air Mesh coil provides an airier mouth-to-lung draw while the 1.6ohm Standard coil delivers a more restricted mouth-to-lung draw. It all depends on your preference.
Although it is marketed as a mouth-to-lung device, you can still get direct lung hits from this device. If you are looking for a portable device that will give you control over your vaping, the Tance Max may just be what you’ve been looking ofr.
