Pod vapes can be indistinguishable from their design. Well, not the latest Klypse pod vape from Innokin.

The Bottom Line
The Innokin Klypse Mecha has some of the best styling we’ve seen in a pod vape. It’s unique, well-made, and a joy to use. It delivers an excellent MTL vape with the 1.2Ω pod and adjustable wattage and airflow. However, it’s a little lacking when it comes to RDL vaping and the 0.6Ω pod. The Mecha is a great choice for MTL vapers who like a touch of style.
Design & Build Quality
The Innokin Klypse Mecha strikes an immediate impression with its intricate craftwork. The designers clearly took inspiration from mechanical timepieces.
This distinctive choice sets it apart, making it a functional device and a conversation-starting accessory.
The body of the Klypse Mecha is constructed from a high-quality brushed zinc alloy, giving it a robust and premium feel.
The front face of the Klypse Mecha is where the design truly shines. A transparent side panel showcases a 3D representation of the inner workings of an analog timepiece.
The detailed cogs, gears, and dials, rendered in contrasting colors, create a mesmerizing effect, almost giving the illusion of motion.
A combined button/dial, cleverly designed to resemble a cog, stands out prominently on the front.
The button/dial is intuitively placed and easy to use, allowing for straightforward adjustment of wattage settings.
It’s a thoughtful design element that elevates the design. However, its protrusion from the device’s body means it can occasionally be pressed unintentionally, especially when carried in a pocket.
The OLED screen of the Klypse Mecha is circular, seamlessly fitting with the device’s overall design theme.
The screen is positioned in the middle of a faux dial, making it unobtrusive when not in use. Once activated, the display is crisp and bright, providing all necessary vaping information elegantly.
The back panel of the Mecha features a diamond pattern reminiscent of carbon fiber. It adds to the aesthetic but also provides a pleasant tactile experience.
The adjustable airflow slider is located on one of the zinc alloy sides. It offers a good range of movement and is resistant enough to prevent accidental adjustments.
On the reverse side, you’ll find the USB-C port for charging the 900mAh battery.
The Klypse Mecha is available in two color options – Moonshadow Ink and Stardust Silver. Both metallic finishes really complement the device’s aesthetic.
I particularly love the Moonshadow Ink with its Red accented cog.
In hand, the Mecha feels somewhat more substantial than other pod vapes. Weighing around 100g, it’s neither too heavy nor too light, striking the right balance for a device of its size and build.
Despite the device’s ornate design, the Klypse Mecha maintains a level of practicality. It fits comfortably in the palm, with a height of 92mm and a width of just under 44mm. Making it a portable device that still retains a sense of presence and substance.
As a nod to the watchmaking inspiration, it would have been nice to see some other kind of interaction or movement with the mechanical dials on the device.
How achievable this would’ve been, I don’t know. Still, the static design manages to captivate.
In terms of build quality, the Klypse Mecha doesn’t disappoint. Every component, from the magnetic pod connection to the dial, feels well-made and reliable. It’s evident that Innokin has invested significant effort into designing each element of the device.
The overall design and build quality of the Innokin Klypse Mecha reflect a harmonious blend of form and function. It’s a device that respects the aesthetic heritage of the past while embracing the technological advancements of the present.
Let’s see if the Mecha can deliver a vape performance to match the design.
Features & Functions
The Innokin Klypse Mecha, while steeped in aesthetic allure, doesn’t skimp on functionality and advanced features.
Powering the Klypse Mecha is a 900mAh battery, delivering a maximum output of 18W.
Central to the Klypse Mecha’s functionality is the OLED screen that melds seamlessly into the design.
This screen is crisp and clear. Displaying vital stats like battery life, power settings, coil resistance, and draw time.
The inclusion of a digital clock (a unique feature among pod vapes) adds an unexpected twist, reflecting the timepiece inspiration behind the design.
The adjustable airflow slider is smooth yet firm, allowing for precise adjustments. It caters to a tight mouth-to-lung draw up to a restricted direct-lung inhale.
In terms of smart functionality, the Klypse Mecha automatically detects the resistance of the attached pod and adjusts the power accordingly.
Charging the Klypse Mecha is straightforward, thanks to the Type-C USB port on the side. This placement allows the device to stand upright while charging, a small but thoughtful design choice.
The charging rate is set at 0.8A, resulting in a recharge in about an hour.
The Innokin Klypse Mecha includes two pods, both with a 2ml capacity, but tailored to different vaping preference
- 0.6Ω mesh pod (15W optimal)
- 1.2Ω mesh pod (10W optimal)
There’s also a 0.8Ω available and the pre-filled 1.7Ω Klypse C1 cartridges if you prefer less hassle.
Innokin Mecha’s pods are designed to snap firmly into place via strong magnets. Contacts remain secure during transport while still enabling effortless swapping.
The pods are tinted to match the device’s aesthetic but are still transparent enough to gauge your juice level at a quick glance.
Refilling the pods is a straightforward affair. The fill port is located on the side near the bottom. The pod must be removed from the device to refill, but it keeps things looking clean.
The mouthpiece of the pod is ergonomically designed, providing a comfortable vaping experience.
The Klypse Mecha is a solid performer, especially for MTL vapers.
The 1.2Ω coil delivers excellent flavor. I tested it using a variation of juices with varying PG/VG ratios and nicotine types.
It handles everything well, even thicker juices. However, it works best with a thinner blend like 50/50.
Nicotine salt juices are smooth, and my preferred freebase liquid delivered an excellent and satisfying throat hit.
I felt no need to adjust the wattage on the 1.2Ω coil, but you do get a little warmer vape and slightly more pronounced flavor if it’s above 10W.
I did notice that the flavor was a little muted on the first few puffs as the coil breaks in, but it’s pretty negligible. It’s soon up to standard and as good as some of the best pod vapes out there.
My experience with the 0.6Ω coil was not quite as impressive.
It handled the different viscosity liquids fine, and the flavor was still good throughout.
However, even with the airflow wide open, I feel it’s a little off the mark for an RDL vape.
It does produce decent vapor, but for an RDL-style vape, I think there are better pods out there.
The airflow control works well on the Klypse Mecha but is mainly for covering all types of MTL draw.
The auto draw trigger works well on the device and fires instantly on the inhale.
However, I did notice it falter a couple of times on the 0.6Ω coil with the airflow wide open. With the 1.2Ω coil, it was pretty flawless.
I expected that the Mecha would also be able to fire via the button, but that’s not the case; it’s draw-fire only.
The battery life was respectable for the size of the device. The 900mAh cell would last a couple of days when used in MTL mode, which is great.
The 0.8A charge rate gets the device topped up in about an hour, which is okay. But I would’ve liked a slightly faster charge rate like on other pod vapes.
Overall, the performance of the Innokin Klypse Mecha is excellent for MTL vapers. It looks stylish and delivers a flavorful vape from the 1.2Ω coil.
There’s no denying the Innokin Klypse Mecha is one of the most eye-catching pod vapes on the market.
The design is stunning and unique. Innokin has done a great job implementing the mechanical timepiece look and backed it up with excellent build quality.
The OLED screen and adjustable dial blend perfectly with the device. Although the dial does protrude a little too much for my liking and can easily get snagged in your pocket.
The Mecha also delivers an impressive vape experience for MTl vapers.
The adjustable wattage and airflow work well in the MTL ranges. The 1.2Ω coil performs excellently, producing fantastic flavor.
It’s not as impressive as an RDL pod with the 0.6Ω, but it still delivers a respectable vape.If you’re an MTL vaper looking for an attractive pod vape with adjustable features. The Klypse Mecha is a great choice.
