Kroma-R 80W Zlide by Innokin Review – What You Should Expect From This MTL Kit

The Kroma-R 80W Zlide is yet another starter kit from one of the renowned vaping manufacturers of all time – Innokin. The device is a suite for beginners who are just getting their feet

into vaping, as well as experienced vapers. The Kroma-R features dynamic output modes that give you an even greater way to personalise your vaping experience. It also comes with the popular Innokin Zlide mouth-to-lung (MTL) tank. 

If you have been vaping for a while, there is no doubt that you have heard about Innokin. The company goes way back to 2011 when vaping was not as popular. Innokin brings together innovation, design, and high standards of quality to create some of the best tanks, mods, and pod systems on the market. Their success is already evident in some of their renowned products like the  Innokin EQs, Innokin Endura, Innokin Kroma, and Innokin Spectre.

Design and Build Quality

Straight out of the kit, the Kroma-R looks like a compact device and feels durable, impervious to minor accidents. Measuring at 131mm x 40mm x 26mm, it is a device that does not give any issues with portability. The body is made of a zinc-alloy and features a textured grip so it does not go slipping away when you hold it. There is a metallic accent at both the top and bottom of the Kroma-R that add a touch of elegance to the overall design.

The Kroma-R features a well-sized fire button and a crystal clear LED screen that gives you a handful of helpful information like your wattage level and battery percentage. The fire button is one major pro in the Kroma-R since Innokin claims that it fires in 0.003 seconds, making the Kroma-R one of the fastest firing mods available on the market. The fire button also turns the device on, as well as adjusts the wattage and voltage.

  • Three clicks of the fire button turn the device on/off
  • A single click to fire
  • Press and hold for 2 seconds to activate the wattage and voltage adjustments


The Kroma-R is powered by a single high amp 18650 battery that is housed in a battery compartment with a hinged battery door so the battery stays nice and snug. There is a micro USB port on the body of the Kroma-R that you can use to charge the battery.

The devices can attain a wattage range of 6 watts to 80 watts which is just enough for the Zlide tank to work well. It is also enough power for other tanks that may be compatible with the device. Its variable wattage can be adjusted using the two vertical buttons under the LED screen, and they adjust at 1-watt increments. 

Why it is marketed as an MTL vape device is no doubt the resistance. With the Kroma-R, you can vape as low as 0.05ohms.

The device also features 3 power output modes: soft, normal, and boost. It is also capable of a CURVE mode that forces the device to monitor its wattage every 0.5 seconds. This helps to maintain the proper wattage output while you vape, giving you a smoother vaping experience. There is also VW, VV mode, and Bypass mode. 

Zlide MTL Tank

The Zlide tank can accommodate 2ml of ejuice. It measures 22mm in diameter so it sits comfortably on the Kroma-R thanks to a gold-plated 510 connection. The tank comes with a pyrex glass reinforcement and features superior stainless steel construction for even more durability. At the top is a 510 proprietary drip tip.

Filling the tank is also easy, something any newbie should get the hang of in a matter of minutes. It uses a top-fill mechanism with a sliding cap. You simply remove the drip tip and slide the top cap to expose the fill port.

The Zlide uses Innokin’s plug-and-play Z-coil series and comes with a 1.6-ohm Kanthal coil, and a 0.48-ohm Mesh coil. It is compatible with the entire Z-coil lineup so feel free to get as many vaping experiences as you could handle. Installing the coils and replacing them is just as easy as filling the ejuice tank.
