The Vaptio Wall Crawler is a very interesting single 18650-battery mod. On the one hand it is compact enough to easily fit in your pocket, but it can also accommodate tanks and RDAs up to 26.5 mm in diameter with no overhang and comes packed full of advanced features like multiple curve modes, menu themes, and language selection, some of which I have yet to see on other devices. It definitely sounds like a really good device, but let’s take a closer look at it.
The Vaptio Wall Crawler comes in a very nice looking cardboard box, with a picture of the mod and included tank on the front, a list of kit contents and company information on the back, as well as all the legally required warnings, pictograms and a list of available color combinations on the sides of the box.
Inside the box, you’ll find the Wall-Crawler 80W mod sitting in a plastic tray, and underneath that, you’ll find the tank, user manual and a bunch of accessories. The kit I received for review included the 26.5mm Frogman sub-ohm tank, but Vaptio also sells the mod with its Throne tank, so check them both out on their website to see which one fits your needs.
If you’re looking at these photos of the Vaptio Wall Crawler and thinking that you’ve seen this design before, it’s probably because this device is heavily inspired by mods like the Eleaf iStick PICO, SMOK AL85 and iJoy Capo 100. It has that same stubby body and the characteristic battery cap on the top, next to the 510 connection. However, Vaptio’s device stands out thanks to the “Wall Crawler” theme, which, if you haven’t guessed by now, is the name you use when you want to use the Spider-Man theme without infringing copyright laws. The mod features a spider web design and even a slightly modified Spider-Man logo so you could say Vaptio was as blunt as they could be without actually using the Spider-Man brand.
The Wall Crawler mod measures 73.5mm x 50mm x 28.5 mm, according to the Vaptio website, but in reality, the mod is only 27mm wide, so atomizers over 27mm in diameter will overhang.
The Wall Crawler features a 1.3-inch TFT color display with a decent resolution. Underneath the display is the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons designed like a pair of menacing eyes. On the opposite side of the mod is a plastic panel with the Wall-Crawler spider logo.
The metallic firing bar feels very solid and has a very large pressable area. As long as you don’t press it at the very bottom, you’ll hear that satisfying ‘click’.
The 510 connection features a gold-plated, spring-loaded pin, but I’m not sure it’s very solid. The plastic surrounding isn’t very reassuring and the connection itself is completely exposed with no screws to hold it down. I’m not saying it’s flimsy, but maybe don’t pull too hard on your atomizers if you can help it.
To insert your 18650 battery, all you have to do is unscrew the metallic cap right next to the 510 connection, slide your battery in with the positive terminal facing down, as per the polarity markings, screw the cap back on and you’re done. The threading on the cap is smooth as butter, and I can confirm that the mod doesn’t have any battery rattle at all.
The Vaptio Wall Crawler may look like a small and simple device, but it actually has one of the most feature-rich menu systems I’ve ever seen on a vape mod. There’s a lot to go through, but luckily, navigating the different sub-menus and options is very simple to do.
To get into the menu, you have to press the firing bar three times in rapid succession. You are then presented with four colorful icons on the screen, three for sub-menus and one that takes you back to the home screen.
In ‘Modes’, you can select the mode you want to use the device in. If you select ‘VW Mode’, you can then choose from three preheat options – Soft, Normal and High.
Filling the tank is very simple. You just turn the top-cap counter-clockwise and it just pops up, revealing two large fill ports. Just pour the juice into the tank and then align the two metal notches on the edge of the tank with the holes on the inside of the top cap, press down and turn it clockwise to lock it in place.
The Frogman tank comes with two Baby Beast style coil heads, both 0.4Ω and with a recommended wattage range of 30W – 80W. They are all right for ling-inhale vaping, offering great vapor production and decent flavor as well. I don’t know what material they are made of though.
All in all, it’s a decent tank with a good e-liquid capacity and above-average performance, but it’s nothing revolutionary, nothing we haven’t seen before.
