The Desire Design Anubis 60W Pod Mod is a device that while good, doesn’t really bring anything new to the table. This product is one of many hybrid style reproductions hitting vaping shelves in early 2020. In my opinion, it most closely resembles the new VOOPOO VINCI X and SMOK RPM PRO. They all sport an external battery, adjustable airflow, and interchangeable coils. So what makes the Anubis different? More on that later.
Desire Design is a relatively small vape manufacturer based out of China. In 2018 they experienced a huge amount of exposure because of a product collaboration with vape personalty Ohm Boy. Together they released the Ohm Boy Rage Squonk Mod which was one of the best selling products of that year. Since then Desire Design has had some success with their CUT series, but as of late haven’t released anything that great.
The Desire Design Anubis 60W Pod Mod is compact and relatively powerful. Although the square-like shape is a little uninspiring, it can easily fit into your pocket and feels quite comfortable in hand. It measures 118mm’s by 22mm’s by 30mm’s and accommodates a single 18650 battery. I personally prefer using an external battery device compared to an internal one. It feels much safer and is also convenient.
The Desire Design Anubis Pod Mod can output between 5 and 60 watts. That’s 10 watts less than the VINCI X and 20 watts less than the SMOK RPM PRO. It does though feature a bypass and variable wattage mode if you’re into that kind of thing. This is all presented beautifully on a crystal clear 0.96″ inch color display. The screen layout is almost identical to the VINCI, so I’m guessing it’s running a modified version of the GENE.AI chipset.
Just like the VINCI, the Anubis can automatically detect your coils recommended wattage and will adjust it accordingly. You can also choose between a draw or click fire action. Ontop is your 5.2ml refillable cartridge that contains a replaceable coil. The kit comes with two coils options. This includes a 0.4 ohm DTL and 0.8 ohm MTL. I’ve always enjoyed the flavor that a Desire Design coil head can produce and these are no different.
As previously mentioned, the airflow is adjustable. Simply rotate your cartridge 180 degrees to increase or decrease the amount of air coming in and out. The change in airflow is more noticeable with the Anubis than other hybrid devices. I was able to easily tailor my vaping preference from a loose DTL to a slightly restrictive MTL. While this method isn’t as elegant as other AIO devices, it’s the best so far for most pod mods.
The only place to buy the Desire Design Anubis 60W Pod Mod right now is from the official Design Design website. It’s retailing for $49.99 USD. I think this is very expensive and would love to see it drop by $10 to $15 USD. This would be much more in line with what other brands are charging. Even though the price is exuberant, it still does perform quite well. I would recommend the Anubis to vapers that don’t already own a pod mod.
The Desire Design Anubis 60W Pod Mod comes in four distinct colors that include carbon fiber, brown, grey, and red. The fit and finish is unfortunately not that special or exciting. The packaging design is also fairly dull and doesn’t tie in with the product. Inside you’ll find an Anubis 60W Pod Mod, 1 x cartridge, 2 x coils, airflow ring, drip tip cap, USB Type-C charging cable, and also a user manual.
