The Bottom Line

The Innokin Zyon is a versatile pod that delivers respectable performance at a reasonable price. However, there are better pods on the market for flavor and overall performance. The Zyon does have excellent capacities with the 4.5ml pod and 1300mAh battery. It’s also got all the features you need, including adjustable wattage and airflow, and is easy to use for beginners. Overall, I feel there are better options out there for MTL and RDL vapers.

Product Description

The Innokin Zyon is a compact and user-friendly pod vape. It was designed in collaboration with Phil Busardo and Dimitris Agrafiotis (aka VapinGreek). 

Released at the same time as the Kroma Nova, the Zyon is a more compact, simplified offering. 

It’s got a 1300mAh battery under the hood, variable wattage up to 25W, and adjustable airflow, so you can tinker with it to your heart’s content. 

It uses Innokin’s PZP coils, which come in resistances from 0.4Ω to 1.2Ω, so whether you’re an MTL or RDL vaper, the Zyon’s got you covered.

In the box, you’ll find the Zyon device, a refillable pod (4.5ml capacity, or 2ml if you’re in TPD land), a 0.6Ω coil (pre-installed), a 1.2Ω coil, a USB-C charging cable, and a quick start guide. Innokin offers six color options: Black, White, Light Purple, Green, Light Yellow, and Pink.

Design & Build Quality

The Zyon has a simple look that fits well with Innokin’s regular design ethos.

The zinc alloy body feels solid in your hand. It could take a beating and keep on ticking. The rounded body enables it to hug your palm perfectly.

It’s not the smallest of pods, measuring just 100.2mm x 29mm and weighing 90 grams. It’s easy to carry but nowhere near as compact as something like a Caliburn. I definitely notice it when it’s in my pocket.

However, compared to the larger Kroma Nova, the Zyon is more pocketable and discreet.

The Zyon’s design is understated, with a single-color finish that varies depending on the model you choose. 

There are no crazy patterns or graphics here, just a pop of color that says, “I’m confident enough to keep it simple.” The Light Yellow and White options we have for review are particularly easy on the eyes.

One of the standout features is the curved firing button that doubles as a screen. It’s easy to find and press, giving enough basic info at a glance. 

You can see wattage and battery life, but only if you have decent eyesight. I’m not exaggerating when I say this screen is small. It also sits so far back in the device’s body that you have to look straight on to see it; any slight angle cuts off the screen.

Honestly, I expected more from Innokin here. I know it’s an affordable device, but I’ve seen cheap disposables with better screens.

Below the firing button, you’ve got the USB-C charging port right in the center. That means you can stand the Zyon up while it’s charging – no more awkward laying-on-the-side action. The little things like this make a big difference in day-to-day use.

On the other side of the Zyon, there’s the airflow slot. It lines up with the airflow holes on the pod, and you can adjust the airflow by twisting the pod. I found it easy to adjust the airflow to my liking, but the pod doesn’t always stay in place once it’s set, which is a bummer. 

While the airflow adjustment system is more straightforward than the slider on the Kroma Nova, I’d have preferred that implementation here.

The pod also has another weird design choice. It has a plastic ring that slots over the top. I can only assume it’s for added protection. 

But man, this thing is a pain. When you go to remove the pod, you have to take the ring off first. This cuts off most of your view of the juice inside, and the pod is also tinted, which makes it even harder.

The Zyon pod, made of PCTG material, holds a whopping 4.5ml of juice (or 2ml for you TPD folks). 

Filling the pod is a breeze—just pop it out, unplug the silicone stopper, and fill it up through the large fill hole. The stopper is a bit tricky to get back in, but once it’s in, it’s leak-proof.

I’ve been putting the Zyon through its paces for a couple of weeks now, and it’s holding up like a champ. No chips, no scratches, no cracks, no leaks. 

Overall, the Zyon’s build quality is good. It feels sturdy, the button is clicky and responsive, and the pod fits well. 

My main gripe is that it’s bigger than some pod vapes. I know that’s the price you pay for a bigger battery, but it’s only 300mAh more than most, and it feels a lot chunkier.

Features & Functions

The Innokin Zyon has plenty of features to make it a versatile and user-friendly device.

First up, variable wattage. You can crank the Zyon up from 6W to 25W in 0.5W increments. That means you can fine-tune your vape to your exact liking, no matter what coil you’re using.

While the Kroma Nova offers a higher wattage range (up to 60W), the Zyon’s 25W maximum is more than sufficient for its intended use as a pod device.

Next, we’ve got adjustable airflow. Just give the pod a twist, and you can go from a tight MTL draw to a looser RDL vape. This airflow adjustment system is more intuitive and easier to use than the slider on the Kroma Nova.

The Zyon also has a “Smart” coil detection system that sets the perfect wattage for whatever coil you use. You can always override it and do your own thing. 

Two clicks of the fire button puts you into wattage setting. Each subsequent click will increase the wattage by 0.5W.

The Kroma Nova also has this feature, making both devices beginner-friendly.

The Zyon’s 1300mAh battery is good. It’ll keep you vaping all day (depending on your wattage and usage, of course). 

When it’s time to juice up, just plug in the included USB-C cable, and you’ll be back in action in just over an hour.

While the Kroma Nova has a larger 3000mAh battery, the Zyon’s battery life is still excellent for its size.

The screen is nice to have, but it could be better. At least you get to see your wattage and battery life.

Finally, the Zyon has all the safety features you’d expect from a modern vape. Over-discharge protection, short-circuit protection, a 10-second cutoff—it’s all there to keep you and your device safe.


The Innokin Zyon kit comes with a refillable pod. It holds 4.5ml of juice (2ml for TPD), and it’s made of sturdy PCTG material. 

The tinted design lets you keep an eye on your juice level. I’ve had zero leaks after refilling and swapping coils multiple times.

Refilling the pod is a breeze. Just yank it out, find the silicone stopper on the bottom, and pull it out. 

The fill port is big enough for most bottle nozzles, so you don’t have to play any aim-and-pray games. Just pop the stopper back in when you’re done, and you’re good to go.

The Zyon pod has a bottom airflow design with six little holes that line up with the airflow slot on the device. To adjust the airflow, just twist the pod. 

The Zyon uses Innokin’s PZP coils, which have resistances from 0.4Ω to 1.2Ω. So it can cater to both MTL and RDL vapers. 

In the kit, you get: 

  • 0.6Ω coil = 8-24W (pre-installed)
  • 1.2Ω coil = 10-13W

These coils are a cinch to install and replace. Just pull the old one out and push the new one in until it clicks.

The 0.6Ω coil is perfect for a loose MTL or a restricted lung hit. I’ve been using it between 18-24W with the airflow halfway open, and the flavor is good. 

The 1.2Ω coil is an MTL vaper’s dream. It’s got a tight, cigarette-like draw and it delivers respectable flavor, even at lower wattages (10-13W).

One thing to note – the Zyon pod doesn’t have a removable drip tip. Instead, it’s got a fixed, integrated mouthpiece. It’s comfortable to use and gets the job done, but if you’re a stickler for using your own drip tips, you’re out of luck.


I’ve been putting the Innokin Zyon through its paces for a few weeks now, and I’m still not totally sold on it. 

It’s a perfectly decent pod vape for the price. But it’s not a standout in any one area, and a lot of design choices confuse me about it.

Let me start with the MTL experience. As that’s what I feel the Zyon is aimed at.

The 1.2Ω coil delivers respectable flavor for the resistance. 

However, when I switched from the Zyon back to the Caliburn G3, or Xros Pro. I realised just how far behind the Innokin coils are for flavor.

The PZP coil just felt really muted on the flavor.

Maybe that’s because it has a lower resistance than the 0.9Ω (G3) or 0.8Ω (Xros) that I regularly use.

So, I retrieved one of the 1.0Ω coils PZP coils from the Kroma Nova. And while that one is a little punchier, it still doesn’t compete on the flavor front.

Sorry, Innokin, but you’ve still got work to do when it comes to MTL coils.

On a positive note. The 1.2Ω PZP coil does give you a perfectly tight MTL draw. The sort of cigarette-like draw that will go down well with beginners. 

It’s also worth noting that I played around with the wattage for the MTL coils, and while the vape got warmer, the flavor did not get as pronounced as I’d hoped. So, I stuck to the smart 10W setting for most of my time testing.

The 0.6Ω coil does fair a little better, just like in the Kroma Nova.

It brings out more nuances in the flavor and delivers a smooth draw. 

As I played around with the wattage and airflow, I found my sweet spot around 23W with the airflow a bit more open. The vape was warm, flavorful, and satisfying. The draw stayed smooth and comfortable, with no harshness or spitting.

However, in my opinion, the Zyon is not the right device for this coil. At 23W the 1300mAh battery depletes a little too quickly.

The Kroma Nova is by far the better device for the 0.6Ω coil and restricted DL vaping.

Then, there are some of the design choices of the Zyon that baffle me.

The twist-the-pod feature for adjustable airflow is poorly implemented and never quite stays in place. I found myself constantly having to adjust it to get back to my preferred draw.

As I mentioned before, the screen is one of the worst I’ve seen on a pod device, and it’s not just because of its size.

Although the Caliburn G3’s screen is small, it’s bright, easy to see, and well-organized. None of which I can say for the Zyon.

And let’s not even mention the removable ring on the pod! I am still trying to figure out what that’s about.

Oh, and another thing is that the Zyon lacks auto-draw, which most other competing pods feature. And if you are trying to appeal to beginners, then auto-draw is a must.

One a plus note, the capacities of the Zyon are very good. 

The 4.5ml of the pod is great for a compact device. And I had no issues with leaking.

The 1300mAh battery is also above average and does a great job at lasting a whole day of vaping with the 1.2Ω coil.

Charging time is not the best in class with the 0.75A charge rate. But topping up takes just over an hour, which is respectable.

So where does all that leave the Zyon?

Well, it leaves it as a perfectly respectable MTL pod for the price. It has excellent capacity but is a little lacking in performance compared to the current competition.

Pros & Cons


  • Simple design
  • Easy to use
  • Adjustable airflow for MTL and RDL vaping
  • Variable wattage (6-25W)
  • PZP coils are consistent
  • 1300mAh battery
  • USB-C charging 
  • No leaking or dry hits
  • Comfortable mouthpiece
  • Good for beginners


  • Subpar tiny screen
  • No auto-draw
  • A bit bigger than some other competing vapes 
  • Tinted pod can make it tricky to see your juice level
  • No removable drip tip


After testing the Innokin Zyon for a few weeks, I can confidently say it’s a perfectly competent pod vape. 

It has an understated design, is easy to use, and can cater to both MTL and RDL vapers.

However, the 1.2Ω coil just doesn’t quite match up to the competition when it comes to flavor. And the 0.6Ω coil is better suited in Innokin’s Kroma Nova.

That doesn’t mean the Zyon delivers bad performance; it’s just not quite a top tier, in my opinion.

If you like the Zyon’s design and want a pod device with large capacities, it’s a solid choice.However, Innokin’s Kroma Nova is better for RDL vaping, and the Caliburn G3 or Xros Pro are better offerings for MTL vapers.
