The Eleaf Tance Max is marketed as a Mouth-To-Lung device, and unlike average pod systems, the Tance Max is taller, wider, and thicker. It is an all-in-one manually-activated refillable system that is budget-friendly, stylish, and powerful all at once. The Tance Max is for vapers who want more control even in a pod device, and it is also easy enough to be used by a newbie vaper.


You can purchase the Tance Max Kit within the price range of $30.92-$36.80 on the Eleaf World site. You can also select from an array of 6 colour options that the device is available in. There is the standard Black and White, then the more artistic finishes; Seablue, Trick, Geometry, and Seashell.


The Tance Max kit comes well organized in a simple rectangular cardboard box. All that is on it is a picture of the Tance Max device on the front, a list of the contents as well as technical information, warnings, and the manufacturer’s contact information on the back. There is also an authenticity seal on the side of the box. The box contains the Tance Max device and One refillable 4ml Pod sitting on a Styrofoam holder. The pod comes with a preinstalled 0.6ohm GS Air Mesh Coil Head. Under these is the accessories that come with the kit; One Type-C USB Cable, One Spare 1.6ohm GS Air Standard Coil Head, One User Manual, and Small O-rings for the coil heads.


On the first instance, the Tance Max device looks a little too chubby for a pod system. It seems like Eleaf had their reasons for choosing such a form factor for this device, one of which is because of the device’s e-juice, and battery capacity.


The Tance Max device measures 101mm x 31mm x 20mm, and it weighs about 87g which is a little on the heavy side but not too heavy. The weight gives the device a sturdy feel, especially in your hands. The Tance Max has a stick-like design, which is similar to most pod systems. The chassis of the device is made of zinc-alloy with plastic side panels that lend a durable feel to the Tance Max. Uniquely, the sides and bottom edges have a nice bevelled chrome trim, and while the device may not be able to stand upright at all, its shape allows it fit comfortably in your hand, and your pocket as well.


On the front face of the device, there is a slightly elevated rectangular button with a line in its centre. The button acts as the device’s fire button. The throw on the button is well done so it will not accidentally fire in your pocket, and the button is very easy to use. Five clicks power the device on an off, while only a single click is what you need when you want to take a draw. The line in the centre of the button allows the LED indicator to shine through. The LED indicates when the device is charging or firing, and it also shows the current battery level of the device. The LED indicator uses Green to indicate that the device’s battery is between 100-60%, Blue for when the battery is between 59-20%, and Red when it is lower than 20%.

The Eleaf Tance Max uses a 1100mAh battery which is one of the reasons for its size. The 1100mAh battery can keep you glued to your e-juice for a whole day, and even more depending on how frequent you vape. The device uses a Type-C USB port located at its bottom. The USB-C is reversible, so there is no wrong way to use it. The USB-C port can power the device’s 1100mAh battery from zero to full in an hour.

The refillable 4ml pod that the Tance Max Kit comes with is an awesome feature. The pod is made of a semi-transparent plastic that allows you to see your current level of e-juice. The mouthpiece is flattened on one side to accommodate your mouth comfortably. Under the pod is a threaded collar where the replaceable coils are inserted, and a leak-proof fill port. The fill port uses a rotary design, so you rotate the seal and fill the pod with e-juice. The fill port is wide enough to accommodate most bottle nozzles, although it may be too small for the large ones.

The device’s replaceable pods are an added advantage to pod systems. The metallic base under the pod features the device’s adjustable airflow system, which you can simply turn to allow or reduce the airflow thereby allowing you tweak your vape settings till it’s just right, so if you prefer a tight flavourful draw, this is where you do it. Both coils work very well with all kinds of e-liquids, regardless of the VG/PG ratio or nicotine concentration. The flavour output is pleasant, and the amount of vapour both coils produce is sufficient.

The Eleaf Tance Max is majorly about its pod and battery capacity. For a pod system, it is impressive. It is a device meant for everyone and thanks to the airflow setting you can also get a direct lung hit from this device. The Eleaf Tance Max is a valuable addition to the vape community, one device that is worth every penny.
