The Rincoe Tix is a box style AIO and has a familiar design form that with seen recently from devices like the Artery Pal and Asvape Micro, all of which are inspired by the infamous Billet Box.
The Tix is mostly made of Zinc alloy, which gives it a nice substantial weight in the hand. It also has very slight curved edges and a slight bulge in the center, which makes it easier to hold.
Rincoe decided to add a small lanyard loop on the back of the Tix and included a lanyard cable in the box. While I can see it’s a common thing with small devices nowadays, and some vapers like to wear them around their neck, I think the Tix is far too hefty for that.
The design layout of the Tix is very sleek. It’s primarily an all-black box, but we have an angled badge on the front, which comes with a pattern of your choosing (there are seven in total). We have the Carbon Fiber variant, which looks good, but it is just a shiny plastic piece, not real carbon fiber.
On the back of the device, there’s an etched pattern that replicates the badge on the front and provides a little more grip. The back panel also acts as a magnetic door concealing the pod inside. It’s a well-implement design that we’ve seen with other devices, but while it keeps the device looking compact and clean, it does mean you have to remove the panel to see your juice level in the pod.
The button is more than just a power button, it’s also used to switch between power modes for the device, that’s right the AVP has three different power settings (more on this later). It’s also transparent and houses an LED indicator light behind it, which not only helps to show you which power setting you are on but also the battery status. The button is not used to fire the device, this is done solely through draw activation. It also sits almost flush with the device, so you’re unlikely to click it by accident, but unfortunately, that does make pressing it bit challenging.
The final piece of the design puzzle is the AVP pods themselves. The pods finish off the shape of the device in quite a beautiful way. They curve along with the shape of the battery body, which has a cutout either side so that the sides of the pod can still be seen, which helps with seeing your juice level.
The pod slots into the device and are held into place very securely, so if for any reason you lose the door panel, you won’t need to worry about the pod falling out.
The other noteworthy design points of the Rincoe Tix are the shield-shaped fire button that sits on the top front side of the device. It’s in the expected position for a device of this style, and at first glance, you might just think it was part of the design. It is very responsive to click, and I think it gives the Tix that added a bit of extra style over its counterparts.
On the mouthpiece side of the device, there’s a small airflow hole, two LED indicator lights (one for battery status, and one for power setting), a USB-C charge port, and a small button to toggle through the three power settings that the device offers.
Overall the Rincoe Tix doesn’t bring anything unique to the table. Still, it’s an incredibly well-built device that looks stylish and includes more than the essentials with adjustable power and USB-C charging.
The Rincoe Tix measures in at 90mm x 43mm x 19mm, including the protruding mouthpiece.
It’s a little larger than the something like the GeekVape Frenzy, but still perfectly pocket-friendly.
The Rincoe Tix comes with all the expected safety protections; low battery, short circuit, charging. It also has an 8-second cut-off and pod detection – so you’ll well covered there.
It features an in-built 1000mAh battery, which can be charged using USB-C fast charging.
The Tix also has three different power settings, which can be set by pressing the small designated power button while the device is on.
The three settings are which will be shown by the LED flashing twice:
- Red – 3.3V
- Blue – 3.65V
- Green – Max Voltage (full-output of battery)
There’s also another LED indicator on the device that will show the current charge status while you are vaping.
- Red – 5-15%
- Blue – 15-50%
- Green – 50-100%
The Rincoe Tix pods have a 2ml capacity and can be refilled using the single-port plug that’s located on the top side of the cartridge.
While it’s not the tidiest method of refilling, it’s more than acceptable for this style of device as it’s probably the only way you could add a fill port to the pod. The plug is anchored well to the pod, is relatively easy to open, and the fill porthole is nice and large, so you should have no issues using any dropper.
One slight issue that might arise is that the pod has quite a dark tint to it, so it can be challenging to see your juice level (the same as the Artery Pal).
The coils are easy to install inside the pod, as it has an adjustable airflow ring at their base where the coil heads screw in to.
The airflow ring itself is easy to adjust, but you will have to remove it from the device when you want to adjust it as it’s a little too cramped to turn while it’s in place.
The Tix airflow offers a range from restricted DTL to MTL, which is also dependant on the coils that you are using.
The Tix comes with two different coil heads:
- 0.8-ohm mesh coil
- 1.0-ohm regular coil
The mesh coil is designed for direct lung vaping, but can still be used for a loose MTL. While the regular coil is only suited for mouth to lung but does have a range from loose to tight MTL.
Both coils work well and can cope with 70VG liquid, although I’d recommend using something a bit less viscose for the regular coil, like 50VG for best performance.
I’ve tested two different sets of the coils, and they seem very consistent, with a decent lifespan. I’ve refilled the Tix 6-7 times with the regular coil in place, and it’s still performing ok.
The first thing to mention about the performance of the Rincoe Tix is it hits really really well.
It’s a combination of the power you can deliver to the coils, the smooth pull, and a very definitive throat-hit. In my testing, it definitely delivers a better vape experience than the Artery Pal, or Asvape Micro when it comes to throat hit.
It delivers a warm vape with whichever setting you have it on (which is how I like it). There’s a definitive difference between the settings when using either coil, and I think the power delivery is on point, at no time did I think it lacked in power.
I primarily used the MTL coil in the device and tended to keep the setting on the lowest level (red). I only ventured onto the highest setting when using the mesh coil with the airflow wide-open.
Both the MTL and DTL coils deliver a satisfying warm vape with a decent draw, and a very defined throat hit.
However, where the Rincoe Tix is a little short is in the flavor department. While the flavor delivered from the coils is okay, it’s not fantastic. That being said, I still prefer the whole experience the Tix gives me than some of its similarly designed competition.
Overall the Tix is a straightforward device, it’s easy to use, causes no issues from leaking or spitting, and it delivers a consistent and quality vape.
The 1000mAh battery should see you through a day of vaping quite easily. If you are on the highest setting with a mesh coil, it might be more of a push.
Thankfully it shouldn’t be much of an issue as Rincoe included a USB-C port for charging. This makes it a damn sight easier to recharge as I’ve always got a USB-C charger at hand, and I wish other companies would be a bit more forward-thinking and use USB-C.
It also topped up pretty quick from dead, taking about 45 minutes for a full charge, and there’s pass-thru if you want to use it while charging.

The Rincoe Tix may not be a category leader when it comes to flavor delivered from the coils, but it does get a lot of things right – importantly, one of which is vape experience.
The Tix offers smooth adjustable airflow, adjustable power levels, USB-C fast charging, and a consistent, satisfying vape.
It’s also one of the better-looking devices in this AIO category with brilliant build quality, in a compact and pocket-friendly design.
If you are looking for an easy to use AIO device, the Rincoe Tix is an excellent choice.
