Innokin iTaste CLK! Review

CLK! Click Boom!

The Innokin iTaste CLK Starter Kit… Just Click and Boom.  This new offering from Innokin is called the CLK!, which is the cool way of saying click. You know, Motorola RAZR type naming and such. The Innokin iTaste CLK! takes care of the issue that I’ve heard time and time again from eGo Twist and Vision Spinner users where the variable voltage wheel turns up or down in their pocket. You shouldn’t carry your vape gear in your pocket in the 1st place, but if you have the Innokin iTaste CLK!, at least you won’t have this issue. The CLK!’s variable voltage adjustment is at the bottom too, but the wheel doesn’t spin freely. The CLK!’s wheel clicks into position. You choose your voltage by turning the wheel and it clicks into place. CLK! Click Boom!

Something that people forget is that many new vapers don’t jump right into a DNA 30 Box Mod or a $150 mech mod. 100’s of new vapers a day are starting off with an eGo style setup that they get from their local B&M. The Innokin iTaste CLK! Starter Kit gives those new users everything they need to get started with for a very competitive price.

Design

silver2  blackbody

The CLK! comes in 3 colors currently, Onyx (black), Pixie (pink), QuickSilver (silver). The CLK! is a solid feeling tube and feels really nice in my hand. The Innokin iTaste CLK! feels like a high quality battery.

The CLK! has a tron looking design up and down the casing. It looks really nice on the pink and silver version, but the black version is hard to see.

I would love to have seen the CLK! have the microUSB port on the base like the Leo or VV, but I with the voltage adjustment at the bottom, I understand why they couldn’t. This port is to the left of the button and it’s not a bad placement.

The CLK! has 510 and eGo threading with eGo threads on the outside and 510 threads on the inside. eGo threaded clearomizers fit and line up beautifully and with the included beauty ring, larger tanks look pretty good as well.

The CLK! has the features that matter. There are several features that set the Innokin iTaste CLK! apart from the Vision Spinner, eGo Twist and other similar batteries apart.

Pass through charging – Just like the many of Innokin’s products, you can charge and vape at the same time with pass through charging. Plug the included USB cable into the CLK! and you can charge it up and still continue vaping. With the other eGo style batteries, you have to remove your tank/clearomizer and screw the eGo charger in but with the CLK!, you can leave the tank/clearomizer on and vape on.

Click Voltage Selector – As I mention above, the rotary voltage selector clicks into position, which makes it difficult to accidentally change settings.

The CLK! has a round firing button that doubles as the power switch and battery indicator. The button is translucent so the lights can be displayed. Pressing the button 3 times will turn the CLK! off or on. The button lights a different color depending on the battery life as well. It will light green from 50% to 100% battery life, yellow from 25% to 49%,  and Red when it’s time to charge up.

The CLK! has eGo and 510 connections and comes with a beauty ring to accommodate larger tanks.

iClear 16D  – This is the clearomizer that comes with this kit. It’s a simple clearomizer that uses a bottom dual coil design coil that is replaceable and the tank is plastic. It’s a solid design and the drip tip is not removable. The included coil is a 2 ohm coil. I found that 3.8v to 4.0v was about right for most juices I tried. The draw is as expected with an inexpensive clearomizer, fairly tight.

Battery Life

The CLK! has a fairly small battery at 800 mAh. Even though it’s a little short of the average eGo Twist or Vision Spinners that are being sold, you have the ability to charge and vape.

I have been using the CLK! for almost a week on and off and exclusively for the last 2 days. I am getting 3-4 hours per charge with heavy vaping. For an average vaper, I sincerely believe the battery will last longer.

Value

The value of the Innokin iTaste CLK! is off the charts for what is included. If you buy another eGo style battery, by the time you get a clearomizer and a charger, you are almost at $49.95. If you add a lanyard, well… you see where I am going with this. I’ve also seen online stores selling this kit for as low as $39.99 too.

Conclusion

colors

The Innokin iTaste CLK! Starter Kit is a bottom of the 9th walkoff homerun for Innokin. Seriously. While it’s a beginner’s kit, it’s well-built, comes with all you need, and is priced just right. I would recommend this kit for any new vaper. It comes with a tank (iClear 16D), a charger, and a lanyard. A new vaper can walk into a B&M and buy a kit without all the upcharges and the “oh by the way, you’ll need this and this”.

Even though I have several much more powerful devices, I plan to use the CLK! as my carry around device at work. It’s very light and sits in my pocket perfectly without falling out when I bend down.

Innokin has a nice starter kit on their hands with the CLK!.

Pros

  • Economical Kit

    First, thanks for the lovely review.

    However, I am of the opinion that’s the poorly positioned pushbutton. Vision has made this better on Spinner V2.

    I agree with you also that 800 mAh are too little much.

    By design, the CLK is very successful.

    Best Regards

      Yep. I think Innokin is coming out with a larger battery size too.

      What is the problem with positioning of the button? Should it be closer to the middle of the body?

      PS. Thanks for the comment! We’re a new website and I am a relatively new vaper and I appreciate it on a personal level. Feedback is awesome!

    How do I use the beauty ring??

    1. Chris says

      You thread it onto the ego threading. It’s for use with tanks that use 510 threading (inside threads) instead of the eGo threading (outside threads).

    I just got this clk 2 days ago. Like it much better than my previous itaze. Ready to purchase a 2nd one for back up.

    Hi, thanks for the nice review and good luck with your website. I am loving my CLK. Battery lasts me day and a half, but I guess I’m not such a heavy vaper then… good news 🙂 The only gripe I have is that the coil is not easy to rebuild. Can you recommend an Clearomizer with an easily rebuildable coil that will fit onto the CLK battery? Something that isn’t too bulky. I want the option of changing my wicking material but I like the clearomizer – don’t want an atomizer.
    Thanks again!

    Hi there. I tried to charge my Itazte Clk today from completely dead (no light whatsoever) now, still plugged in, it shows green. I unplug it and press down once and the button glows green for about 5 seconds. With a tank attached, it does not pull, turn off or on and basically does nothing. It’s been unused for about a month. I dont know how to fix this.. Does ANYONE know how to help me? I am so close to running out and buying a pack of smokes 🙁

  6. Anins says

    Hi, make sure your voltage setting isn’t set in between settings…. ring at the bottom of the battery must be clicked in place to your desired voltage. If that’s not it try to replace the coil. Could be a faulty coil. You should buy them extra – one coil lasts about a month. I didnt know this at first and my first coil was a dud so i had similar problems which were resolved with a new coil. They come in a pack of five. Please don’t do yourself the injustice of going back to the stinkies! Good luck.

    I’ve been selling these Itaste clks for awhile now. 800mah, and 1280s. I’ve gotten back 3 of them so far in the last 3 months. Just so people don’t think this product is bad, that’s 1 out of 25 I sell. Seems either the charger is faulty or occasionally the battery isn’t holding a charge (not sure which one at this moment). I am aware of the settings having to be in the exact spot, but this isn’t that problem. I was wondering if you see a lot of this? I’m testing both sides of the theory at the moment. If both sides work, I’m going to call a bluff and say people are trying to charge them in usb ports that won’t charge.

    Has anyone heard of getting a shock from theirs? I’ve had mine for about a month now. Used it last night while driving to work and it gave me a major shock.

    1. Chris says

      My daughter and I use the clk and neither of us have encountered that. What are you using for a tank?

  9. drk says

    Just wondering … How long do u guys charge the clk? I have charged for over 3hrs now and still not on full bat.
    (The led will turn off when full charged right? Sorry just got mine yesterday)

  10. Lynn says

    can anyone tell me more about the variable voltage? what exactly does it do as far as the intake that you’re receiving? when i play around and turn it up, it taste somewhat burnt to me.
    also, someone mentioned above that the coils last about a month—i’m assuming that depends on how much you use it. i’ve gone down to the oil with the lowest amount of nicotine, so i tend to use it a lot. i change the coil when the taste turns to a burnt taste—-i’m changing these things every other day at least…..is this normal??
    thanks to anyone who can help me!!!

    1. drk says

      When u increase voltage (since resistance is constant) u increase power thats dissipated by ur coil which is pretty much heat. This is why when u increase voltage the vape is warmer.
      Im using a nautilus mini with 1.8ohm resistance and i change coils every week. I use either 3.8 or 4 V.

  11. Mandie says

    My clk just flashes all three different colors when I plug it in and it will not charge. Does anyone know what would cause that?
