Design & Style
The Eleaf iSolo Air 2 is a very compact and cute little device.
It has an excellent rounded form with no sharp edges, making it super comfortable to hold. In addition, it easily gets concealed in the palm of your hand, as it’s so tiny.
The iSolo Air 2 measures only 91.4mm tall and is also relatively lightweight at only 108g. As a result, it’s an incredibly pocket-friendly little pod kit.
I like the dark metallic grey finish on the device’s body, with the colored back leather panels being the central styled part. There are some nice color combinations of panels, and they all have the same stitched blocks on them.
One thing I’m not overly keen on is the scribed ‘iSolo Air 2’ log on the side. It ruins what would’ve been an otherwise clean and sleek design.
On the front of the device is the fire button, which is concave and pleasant to use. Then there is an OLED display for all your vaping data (more on this later).
Beneath the display is the independent +/- buttons for adjusting the wattage. This is followed by the USB-Type C port for charging.
A couple of air holes for battery venting are on the base of the device.
The iSolo Air 2 has adjustable airflow. This can be controlled by the protruding pin at the top rear of the device.
It’s an easy slider to adjust and stays in place well. The airflow openings are positioned on either side of the device. They consist of 3 small airflow holes and one wider cyclops hole. This easily enables you to cover the spectrum with regard to MTL draws.
The pods connect to the top of the device through a magnetic connection and hold in place relatively well.
Overall the Eleaf iSolo Air 2 is good looking little pod kit with very good build quality.
The iSolo Air 2 has an integrated 1500mAh battery and a power range of 5-40W.
It only has one mode, which is adjustable wattage. However, this is also of the smart variety, so it will set the recommended wattage based on the resistance of the coil attached.
It will also not let you go above that coil’s range, which is great for beginner vapers.
Sadly there is no auto draw function with the iSolo Air 2; it can only be operated manually with the fire button.
The screen on the device is a simple OLED display. It shows your battery status, current wattage, coil resistance, and puff count.
Operating the Eleaf iSolo Air 2 couldn’t be simpler:
- On/Off – 5 clicks of the fire button
- Adjust Wattage – Use +/- buttons
- Lock device – Hold +/- buttons simultaneously, this locks those buttons, but you can still fire the device.
- Flip screen – Hold the fire button and – button.
- Reset puff count – Hold the fire button and + button.
The iSolo Air 2 can be charged via USB Type C and comes with a cable in the kit. It supports fast charging at a 2A charge rate.
GTL Mini Pod 2
The iSolo Air 2 comes paired with the GTL Mini Pod 2.
The pod has a 2ml juice capacity and is one whole piece of tinted plastic with the mouthpiece integrated. The mouthpiece is ideal for MTL vaping and is comfortable to use.
The Pod 2 now features a top fill system. It’s quite a simplistic system (just like the device) where the rubber plug and fill port sit on the pod’s curved top edge.
It means you don’t have to remove the pod from the device to refill it, which is good as it only has a small capacity.
The pods connect to the device through 3 string magnets. It holds in place well and won’t come out accidentally.
The pod utilizes Eleaf’s push-to-fit GTL coil range. You get the following two coils in the kit:
- 1.2Ω GTL coil (7-13W)
- 0.8Ω GTL coil – (12-18W)
It is also compatible with the 0.4Ω coil, but this will need to be purchased separately. I feel it might also be a little too low resistance for such a small battery capacity.
The Eleaf iSolo Air 2 performs admirably for such a small pod kit.
First and foremost, it’s an incredibly easy-to-use device. Eleaf really has been one of the go-to manufacturers for entry-level vape products – and the iSolo Air 2 is no exception.
The only real negative I have about the iSolo Air 2 device is I wish it came with auto-draw firing. Unfortunately, I feel like that’s become a requirement with modern pod vapes.
I understand omitting auto-draw firing possibly helped to keep costs down, as it’s such an affordable kit. However, if it’s tailored toward beginner vapers, including it would have been a wise move.
The GTL coils both perform very well in the GTL Mini Pod 2. They deliver very good flavor and a more than satisfying vape experience.
I wouldn’t say they are top-tier level for flavor, but they are still impressive. I’ve also had the fortune of testing so many pod systems and coils; most will be very happy with the experience they get from these coils.
The 0.8Ω delivers a slightly warmer vape with a little more punch to the flavor. However, I was happy to primarily use the 1.2Ω as it provided a solid MTL draw and gave me better battery life. I found the sweet spot for performance to be at around 10W.
Eleaf has done an excellent job with the adjustable airflow on the iSolo Air 2. It’s easy to use and covers a loose MTL draw right down to a true tight MTL draw.
I can’t see any MTL vaper complaining about the airflow on this device.
The battery life of the iSolo Air 2 is what you’d expect from a 1500mAh battery. However, if you are rocking the 0.8Ω coil at higher wattages, you might struggle to make it through the day.
However, you should be OK with anything else that’s a little more conservative. At 10W with the 1.2Ω coil, I was easily making it into the next day with the device.
Thankfully, it also charges relatively fast, thanks to the 2A charge speed.
