Here’s a look at a super simple pod mod kit recently released from Freemax. Probably best known for their incredible coils, Freemax has been knocking out plenty of other gear along the way. This new kit is “Inspired from the Fireluke series & FM Coiltech 4.0” and according to their bold claim it’s “Better than the best Sub Ohm Tank”. Let’s take a look at how this new Marvos T kit stacks up!

Packaging and contents:
The kit comes packed in a white and blue box, their standard colours. On the front an image of the device while on the back it lists the specs, contents and the usual warnings and company info. With the kit you get the Marvos T mod, a Marvos T pod, a 0.15ohm MS Mesh coil, a 0.25ohm MS Mesh coil, a USB type-C cable, and a packet containing a usermanual, warranty card, warning card and mine came with a little card mentioning it’s from the first batch. Exactly what you’d expect for a kit like this and nothing more.
The Marvos T mod:
The Marvos T mod is a super simple stick style mod but specifically made to pair with the PCTG Marvos T pod. There’s also a glass pod available that looks nearly identical but it will be sold separately from the kit. Like most pod devices, it uses a series of magnets to secure the pod at the top and just below where the pod sits is the turn to adjust airflow control. It’s got dual cyclops style slots that can go from a wide open loose direct lung to a fairly tight direct lung hit when closing it down.
The device uses the usual five clicks to turn it on and off and powering the device is a 3000mAh “real” battery that’s charged via USB C at a rate of 5V/2A with a full charge taking about 90mins. Not sure what they mean by real battery but so far I haven’t noticed any difference. The device is also semi-regulated and has three power levels to choose from with three clicks of the backlit fire button. Depending on what coil you are using the device outputs Red 40/60W, Blue 50/70W and Green 55/80W with the lower end being for the 0.25ohm and the higher end the 0.15ohm coil. The button light also indicates remaining power with green being full, blue about half and red needing a charge soon. Of course it’s got all the usual safety features built in and the thing really couldn’t get much simpler and easy to operate.
The Marvos T tank/pod:
The PCTG Marvos T pod that comes with the kit holds 4.5ml of liquid unless you’re in a TPD region then it’s the standard 2ml. I don’t see any reference to it being CRC compliant but there are several versions of the kit available, standard, US and TPD. At the top of the pod it comes equipped with a matching yet replaceable 810 style drip tip while on the bottom you’ll find the hole for the plug and play coils and also the silicone plug for the fill port. It’s super easy to swap coils and fill the tank but with only half a chimney in the tank you’ll need to drain it most of the way before swapping coils. Also there’s some kind of special v-shaped groove that’s supposed to cut down on spitback and so far I haven’t experienced any.
Now for me with any Freemax product it’s usually all about the coils and with these new MS Mesh coils this kit is no exception. Both coils with their tea fiber cotton and military grade SS904L mesh kick some serious flavour. When primed properly there’s virtually no break in time and the overall flavour and performance of these coils is nothing short of incredible. Longevity is also nothing to slouch at and with over a full week on the 0.25ohm coil, roughly 14 refills, I was very pleased with how long they lasted. Of course mileage will vary depending on juices used, power settings and personal vaping habits but I can definitely see these giving some of the top coils out there a run for their money.
Despite being a super simple kit I’d say the Marvos T delivers. I actually received several stick style pod mods recently and the Marvos T is the one I’ve been using the most. With three power levels to choose from, decent airflow control and absolutely solid performance from the MS Mesh coils I’ve got almost nothing to complain about with this kit. With it’s ease of use and simple three click interface I think this thing would be ideal for most direct lung vapers just starting out but also for any seasoned vapers who dig an easy to use, portable and rather powerful little DL kit. So is it better than the best Subohm tank?! I’ll say it’s up there but I think that claim will always be just a little bit subjective.
