The LUXE X is a pretty typical pod system that’s beginner-friendly and simple to use. There are no button combinations or modes. To turn it on or off press the fire button five times, while holding the button will fire the device.
The device offers adjustable airflow by changing the orientation of the pod. It’s not a big adjustment, but it’s noticeable. Depending on the coil used and the airflow you are on, it can go from a loose MTL to a restricted DTL vape.

Filling the pod is basic. The pod itself is magnetic and comes in and out pretty easily. It’s not tight in there, but the magnets hold it in place well with no wiggle if you shake it. To remove the pod just grab it and pull it out. To put it back in, just pop it in, and the magnets will grab it. Really easy and simple as it should be.
Luxe X Pod Performance
The most important part of any pod device is going to be the coils. VAPORESSO’s pod systems have had really good coils lately, so we’ll see how this stacks up.
This device uses a new pod series. The coils are built into the pods and come in two options, 0.4-ohm for RDL vaping and 0.8-ohm for MTL vaping. They include one of each pod in the box so you can try both to see what you like before getting more.
I started my testing with the 0.8-ohm coil and used 50/50 20-24mg nicotine salt juices in it. I preferred it on the tighter setting, and the flavor was great and comparable to the top pods on the market. I was able to go through around 50 mL of juice from this coil before having to replace it, which is excellent life. I typically look for around 20 mL in coils like these, so I’ll even give them a thumbs up for their “50% more life” claim.
On with the 0.4-ohm coil, which I preferred on the tighter setting as well. I used 70/30 3 mg juices with this coil, and it was ok. Not bad, but not on the level of the better low-wattage sub ohm tanks on the market. Solid for a device like this though. The coil life was good at about 50 mL, but not great. Pretty average for a 40-watt DL coil.
How to Use Vaporesso Luxe X Pod System
The Luxe X is button-activated only and there is no draw-activation. In order to vape, you have to press and hold the power button. Pressing the power button 5 times will turn the device on or off.
The Luxe X also does not feature wattage adjustment but it can fire at up to 40W. The wattage that it vapes at will depend on the pod that you use. The 0.4Ω pod is for DTL vaping and will vape at 32W. This makes it best suited for regular nicotine ejuices. The 0.8Ω pod is for MTL vaping and will vape at 16W. This makes it best suited to nicotine salt ejuices.
