I was offered the chance to review the Yosta Livepor 256 TC mod just before Christmas and have been putting it through its paces for the past few weeks.
Yosta isn’t a company that I have heard of previously so have no experience with the build quality of their products. But this is a 3 battery mod, capable of powering up to 256 watts. With various different modes you are spoilt for choice. The Livepor 256 is available in 4 different colours.

The Livepor feels relatively lightweight, maybe too lightweight considering the pictures made it look like it was a metal material however this is predominately painted plastic and with the mod I was sent the paint work was rather poor. For me it feels a little tacky and a bit cheap. On the battery cover is a large faux leather covering. I will admit at this point one of my negatives straight off was that it seemed poorly coloured ( I now know from using for more than a minute its actually colour changing )
Yosta Livepor 256 Vape Experience
The Livepor is a 3 battery mod so should offer good battery life and it does. Easily achieving a good day of vaping at a steady 70w. As well as being relatively fast to fire which is a positive. The firing range beginning at 0.06 ohm was also attractive as it allowed me to test with some different coils to normal and chucking a 0.08 build in a dripper I was soon chucking clouds like a pro.
With the 3 batteries in this is still a pretty light mod, Whilst I found the paintwork to be poor it has stood up to normal day to day use without any further issues to the paintwork. It is pretty ergonomic to hold and the large fire button is nice to use and offers a satisfying click.
With various modes on offer you are rather spoilt for choice. Bypass mode which uses the full power of the batteries rather than limiting the power offers a great vape with the right builds this was a fog machine ! Needless to say I am banned from this mode in the house !!
Yosta Livepor 256 Pros & Cons
Looks wise this does not offer anything pleasing really. Looking at the pictures online it looks a classy sleek device but in reality its a little cheap looking and feeling. The colour changing cover is really unnecessary and for me just adds to the tacky vibe I get from the mod. This cover on mine is super smooth and matt black ( changing to a peach colour when warm ) it looks so out of place when it is clear Yosta were aiming to make a good looking device. Lots of shiny paint which unfortunately was not finished or checked before packing. The battery cover just feels cheap and thin plastic. Pretty much this is where the negatives end.
On a positive note the performance is very good. It is fast to fire, not as fast as the Voopoo Drag but certainly fast and is enjoyable to use. The different modes offer something for all and low ohm firing is great.
Unfortunately for me the quality lets it down too much for it to be a device I would want to go out and buy. I know a book shouldn’t be judged by its cover but in this case my first impressions followed through to the end. This said, if you are looking for a good priced mod that you don’t mind it taking a knock or two at work or when out and about this could be one for you! At this point in time there are far too many well made and better looking mods out there for this to offer any competition.
