Vaporesso is on a roll with new product releases so far this year. Just this month they released the Polar 220w and the Armour Pro mods as well as the Zero Pod Device. As if that is not enough already, Vaporesso is catering to the MTL starter kits once again. The new Vaporesso Orca Solo is a pen style vaporizer with a small compact design well suited to new users and vets looking for something portable.
For some time, pen style vaporizers took a seat on the back shelf while the industry innovated high wattage box mods. It seemed difficult to locate new, reliable and performing pens for a while.
Only in the last year or so have they made a surge back into the market. Coming back alongside the wave of nicotine salt based e-liquid. These devices are well suited for high nic salt e-liquids and can deliver a very satisfying experience.
Stick around to learn about the Vaporesso Orca Solo.

Design, Look and Feel
When it comes to a pen style vaporizer, innovation and design are fairly limited. These small devices were the beginning of vaping and have been designed and redesigned thousands of times.
Almost all shapes and sizes of pen vaporizers have been done so when looking at the design of these devices we remain less critical.
Overall, the Orca solo is a very nice looking pen, for what it is. The unit tested is Rainbow in colour, something that I personally have not seen yet. Kudos to Vaporesso for integrating the beautiful rainbow design into this pen.
The weight of the device seems fitting for how small it is. While it is light, you can still feel the heft and quality that is Vaporesso. As with all Vaporesso products, they gave this little pen everything it needed and more to be a reliable and functional device.
The device features a fairly small firing button which is illuminated when depressed. Located to the right of the firing button is the micro USB port for charging.
The last design feature to note is the airflow control. Not typically found on most starter pens these days, it gives a nice range of control for the user to customize their experience a bit further than normal. The airflow sits at the bottom of the tank and turns with ease to fully open and fully closed.
Overall, the Orca Solo is a nice little pen. It hits some nice design features that make it a bit nicer than the typical pen device.
The Orca is offered in 7 different colours; Rainbow, Stainless Steel, Blue, Rose Gold, Metallic Grey, Mint Green and Black. So no matter your choice of style, there is something to suit everyone.
Pen devices are certainly not built for large vapour production or a significant amount of flavour. The point of these is to be effective in aiding the quitting process and provide a nicotine dose able to suppress craving that would normally lead to smoking a cigarette.
That said, the Orca and it’s companion CCELL coils provide a very consistent and positive experience. The coils that come with the device are a ceramic cotton coil. Working with a resistance of 1.3ohm, it delivers a very satisfying hit to the lungs and works well with high nicotine salts.
With the customizable airflow option present on the tank, the ability to set the device to work how you like it makes the Orca a great performer.
Sitting inside the tube is an 800mAh rechargeable battery. This is actually a bit lower in battery power than some of the other options currently available on the market but the coils for this pen should not wear on the battery too quickly.
With a full charge and considering the resistance of the coils, most users should get at least through a work day with the Orca with no issues. It will likely require a recharge at some point through today to maintain a consistent experience.
The Orca Solo comes configured with the Omni Mini Board. The Omni Mini is adapted and redesigned from Vaporesso’ Omni Board that is used in their high wattage device. This Omni Mini is sure to provide you with the industry’s best safety features such as low voltage protection, overcharge protection and short circuit protection.
Overall, the Orca Solo is a well thought out device that does exactly what it is supposed to and it does it well.
