What's new and is it better?
The updated version of the popular Swag II mod in new colourways still features the Axon chip packed with all the features you could need, ergonomic shape and lightweight but it loses the rubber coated front and back panels and now it comes with plastic panels.

It can still accommodate attys up to 25mm in diameter but some 23mm-25mm attys with a bubble tank installed may not fit due to the tall battery cap getting in the way.

Why Vaporesso decided to go with plastic front and back panels over the original and loved rubberised panels is a mystery. It doesn't feel as good, it feels very cheap, not as durable and it would probably break much easier if dropped imo.

Unless you're into the new colourways and plastic panels I'd stick to the original rubber coated version.

Agree. It was the nice rubberised coating many people like.
And I can't find TC mention in the description ider. Don't know if it's VW only, or they just forgot TC in description.
I just order a Blue one WITH TC, and without the UGLY Huge SWAG on it.

There is a little Swag Nano that looks like a smaller GEN but with a battery inside that interests me, just for when I am outside.

As far as I can tell, no such thing as a Swag Nano. You must be thinking about the Gen Nano, which looks like the Gen mod only smaller with an integrated batt.

Sorry, am absolutely exhausted. Yes, the GEN Nano. 😛


It's sooo cute.


Didn't realize it was in stock.
Ok, thanks will purchase.

Sighs, it was already in my basket to check out.
I need a vacation 😂

Because people who are not you (they exist, believe it or not) found the texturised rubber unattractive. They're in business to sell as many things things to as many people as possible, and offering choices you might not like makes that happen.

I got 3 of the V1's on run out for $20 each.

Due to the "press fit" construction style, there isn't a screw in the thing to hold anything in place, they have all developed issues.

Rattles, loose 510, won't charge via USB port, intermittently asking the old or new coil question when nothing has been changed.

Is the V2 construction improved ?
