Innokin Zlide Tube is an easy-to-use vape kit and is one of the latest versions of one of the many vape kits for beginners and intermediate vape people.
In this range, there are some very popular options, for example, without any research, I know that endura T18 II, T18E and T20 kits are very popular in the first use or are looking for mouth-to-lung (MTL) vape.
Since its launch in 2011, we have reviewed most of Innokin’s products. Innokin EQ and DV Pod Systems, as well as Proton Mod, are impressive.
First look at The Innokin Zlide Tube
The tube has a 3000mah battery, which is really cool, but impressive is the light weight of the battery plus the water tank. It’s easy to put it in your pocket.
It is equipped with a 24mm diameter Zlide tank (obviously) and a liquid capacity of 4ml.
It’s “affordable, easy to use, excellent battery life and excellent vape quality and flavor”, what else can we ask for?
According to Innokin, it has no variable power setting, and if you use a Zlide coil less than 1.0 ohms, it will be emitted at 16W. The Zlide coil spowered with more than 1.0 ohms will be transmitted at 13W of power.
Let’s see if it does as well as it sounds…

Design and Build Quality
Tube / Battery
Innokin Zlide Tube Kit comes in 6 colors (as shown above, including stainless steel, spiral, pink, blue, forest camouflage and black), and I’m lucky to receive blue.
As I said in my introduction, the tube (battery part) is ultra-light and weighs 84 grams.
There’s nothing to say, the battery portion of the vape pen-type module is usually very similar. Although the width is 24 mm, it is a little thicker than I expected.
The button is diamond-shaped and surrounded by an LED light indicating the battery level.
Innokin Zlide tube does not have any special features, such as variable power settings, which are very simple and plug-and-play.
The tank and the mod connect with a 510 Pin. The threads are really smooth and they connect quite nicely.
With the exception of the adjustable airflow ring (which meets the tube), the tank and tube are the same widths.
MICRO-USB (not USB-C) is located on the back of the device (the opposite side of the button), which is typical for A Tube-type devices.
I’m really annoyed when the new device is still using Micro-USB.
The Zlide Tank
The Zlide tank looks beautiful. Instead of the glass being completely exposed, the metal structure falls from either side of the tank. I’ve always thought it would make glass safer, less exposed, less likely to break, right?
Glass is also removable, which is good, which means that if you break the glass, it can obviously be repairable. This may sound obvious, but not all tank. It also makes it easier to clean the tank thoroughly.
From the top of the device, it lacks 2 notches in an otherwise perfect cylinder/circle. There is an arrow (two arrows) on one of the notchs, indicating that it is moving in that direction.
I finally realized that you had to remove the drip head, which has an extra lip/step to wedge the filling cap. Very clever, I like it.
When drip tip is removed, the top slide opens very gracefully. It’s not too loose or tight.
The Zlide tank provides variable airflow, although it does not provide a “significant” DTL airflow (big hole), which is very generous.
There are 4 decently sized circle holes, it can be set to fully off, 1, 2, 3 or 4 holes.
The device feels really durable and great. However, I found that the color had worn/peeled in some places after carrying it with me in my pocket (possibly keys and change).
It’s all standard, but rest assured, we’ll keep going.
How To Fill The Innokin Zlide Tank
- Lifting the drip/nozzle (partially is ok)
- Press the two arrows on the top of the water tank to open the lid
- Pour the e-liquid into the filling hole.
- Push the cap away and press back the drip tip inward
How to Change the Innokin Zlide Coil
To avoid leakage, turn the tank upside down and look at the tank and you’ll see a white O-ring with its interior facing in the middle.
When you remove the coil, any fluid above the O-ring (inverted) will leak. If there is no liquid above the O-ring, the leak is minimal or not.
- Remove the tank from the battery.
- Invert, release the bottom of the tank (adjustable airflow position)
- Raise the coil from the tank
- Fill the coil by dropping 3-4 drops of e-liquid into cotton to saturate it. This is optional.
- Put the new coil in
- Retighten the bottom of the tank.
After replacing the coil, place the TANK upright (on or outside the tube) for 5 minutes so that the electronic liquid is fully immersed in cotton. If you don’t wait, you risk burning cotton and damaging coils.
It’s really simple. To turn on the device, press the fire button 3 times in a row. When on, the LED will flash 3 times (1 flashin in red, 1 flashin in blue and 1 flashin in green).
To turn off the device, press the button 3 times in a row. When turned off, the LED will flash green twice.
At vaping, the LED lights up and its color represents the current battery level.
- Green = 100% – 40%
- Blue = 40% – 10%
- Red = 10% – 1%
- Flashing Red = Battery is dead and needs recharging.
While charging the colour of the LED Indicator signifies the current battery charge.
- Red= Less the 90% fully changed
- Green= 90% or above
- No LED = Fully Charged (…or not connected to the charger)
How Does the Innokin Zlide Tube Kit Perform?
Before I do that, I’d like to say how bad I think the battery meter is.
Well, it has one that’s better than some of the systems I’ve used, but I think it can be done with better “adjustments” because there are no better words.
The usual indication levels are 0%, 30% and 70% (for use and charging), and I just think 1%, 10% and 40% (90% and 100% on charging) are useless.
1.2 Ohm Z Coil
A 10-14W coil is recommended. The power on the kit is 13W (above 1 ohm) and therefore works.
I use this coil MTL.
Steam is full enough, much more than cigarettes, but it’s not really a cloud.
It’s really impressive, it’s not going to “flood your mouth” like the 80W TANK, but it’s fair to say that we’re using 13W here.
When you inhale, you get a good flavor at the back of your throat, and when you exhale, it’s really good and full of taste.
Very good, mixed with the taste of orange grapefruit!
The production of flavor seems to be lasting, which is obvious.
Shortly after I started using DTL, I did try this method, but it didn’t work well and it tasted dry.
Not very good for higher VG liquids, but it’s not surprising.
To test, I added some Juccier Double Lemon Fizz. This is a very good liquid mixed at 70VG / 30PG.
Fill it up and leave for about 10-15 minutes, then dry hit. I turned off the inhaled air flow (no fire) to inhale the liquid more quickly and stay for another five minutes.
Although everything I say doesn’t work, it’s sure to burn the coil and never deliver the desired taste.
0.8 Ohm Z Coil
A 15-18W coil is recommended, which is ideal because the kit will be emitted at 16W (because it is less than 1ohm).
The flavor appears to be the same as the 1.2 ohm coil, with good output, but not too cloudy.
The taste seems to be about the same, although it fluctuates, but one puff seems to taste a little more than the 1.2ohm coil, and the next puff seems to decrease. It’s a little annoying.
It seems to handle DTL atomization well, but flavor generation will be affected and you can still get a faint flavor, but not too much.
It handles 70VG / 30PG liquid sits much better, and I completely suck up a can of Juccier Double Lemon carbonated drink without any blow.
Flavor segeneration is as good as 50PG / 50VG liquid. Although there is a slight lymonal when trying to use the 70/30 DTL.
Innokin Zlide Airflow
As I mentioned above, the adjustable airflow does not have a “fully open” setting as some vape tanks. However, when the airflow is set to all 4 holes, the airflow is sufficient to pull Direct To Lung.
Reducing the air flow to just one hole is strict, but I think it’s a little looser than smoking a cigarette.
I think it’s a good thing that stopping the cut-off air flow may cause the coil to burn.
Battery Life And Charging
Battery life is an impressive event, powered by a 3000mAh battery, and the kit can provide approximately 1200 x 2 secondsuction time at the highest power output using a 16-watt 0.8 ohm coil.
To illustrate this point, you can get more than 2 seconds of blow-off time per minute every 18 minutes before the battery runs out. It’s very admirable.
With 1.2 ohm coils (13W), the blow-off time per minute is less than 3 seconds for 18 hours before the battery runs out.
In fact, with a 1.2ohm coil, a fully charged battery allows me to last 2 days for the best time (about 30 hours, excluding sleep time).
Full charge with 0.8ohm coil can last about a day and a half (about 26 hours).
The charging effect is not good. By changing 1 amp, you can fully charge the 3000mAH battery in approximately 3 hours.
I did try to time, but i failed every time, and I knew it would definitely take 2.5 to 3.5 hours.
Innokin Zlide Coil life
I can tell you that I have been using the resistor of 0.8 ohm for 10 days and the coils that use 1.2 ohms have been used for 3 days, but they are still very strong.
- Simple for new vapers to use
- Great Adjustable airflow
- Great Flavor Production
- Decent Vapor Production
- Locking Top Fill
- Bottom changing coils
- Doesn’t have variable power settings
- Battery Indicator levels could be better
- The color finish of the mod isn’t very durable
Conclusion about innokin zlide
The Innokin Zlide Tube Kit is a perfect entry kit for vaper, and it requires a simple but mouth-to-lung kit.
Of course, mod color/exterior coatings can be made more durable, the battery meter can be adjusted better, and better at variable power.
But it does work well and it provides a lot of smooth steam and taste. And don’t forget that it has a huge amount of power that benefits former smokers all day long.
If we look back at the “What to Expect” section, I quote Innokin as saying that the kit is “designed for affordable, easy-to-use, excellent battery life, and excellent vape quality and flavor”, that’s what we get.
