  1. When is this available in the UK please?

    • Hi Andy,

      Keep your eyes out over the next few weeks, as they should be in stock with your favorite authorized Innokin dealer by then. Thank you!

      • why the hell would you make a high performance mod that only takes 18650 batteries that mod can barely power that plexus coil 21700 would have been a way better choice

        • Hi Neil,

          21700 and 18650 batteries have similar nominal voltage and amperage. Dual 18650s are more than enough to power the Plexus coil. Can you explain why you believe 21700 batteries would have been a better choice? Thanks!

      • Hi I bought a Proton yesterday can you tell me why it gets so Hot you can’t touch it after use, do I have some settings set wrong ? What is the normal wattage to run this this unit at with both types of coils please, love the looks of the proton just wish I could work out why it gets so Hot

        • Hi Chris,

          The Proton runs at a pretty high wattage, which in turn creates plenty of heat from the atomizer. Be cautious when touching the tank, base of the 510 connector, and top of the mod after vaping as it could be hot. If you’re looking for a heat reduction solution, either lower your wattage setting accordingly, or take more time inbetween vapes to allow the device to cool off. Hope this helps!

  2. Looks fantastic terrific specification

  3. How much. I don’t even have a Dealer price yet.

  4. Also why not use 20700 batteries. I have the Oceanus and they are ok batteries

    • Hi Michael,

      In a high wattage device like the Proton, we feel confident that 18650s will be safe to handle the require amp load of the maximum potential of the Proton. Remember to buy your batteries from proven sellers and ensure they can handle the load of the device you put them in. Thanks!

  5. just wanted to know when the proton kit will be avaible for sale

    • Hi Josh,

      The first orders for our distributors should be fulfilled within the next week or two, so keep your eyes out for stock at your favorite authorized Innokin dealer! Thanks for your interest!

  6. Innokin does it again with their new Proton! The innovation from Innokin does not stop. They continue to bring high quality products to the Ecig Community. Innokin leads the industry with innovation, quality, quality control, creativeness, new technology, and outstanding people. Be sure to stop by for a complete review of Innokin’s Proton, as soon as I am able.

  7. Looks pretty cool. I was wondering if there is a way to lock the joystick button so the mod isnt continuously changing wattage on accident.

  8. This looks like a beauty but performs like a beast! This one is a home run!

  9. Absolutely Stunning! I entered your contest and would love to have one of these beauties in my hand. It looks amazing. :)

    • Hey Karla,

      Thank you for the kind words! We’re very proud of the Proton and hope it exceeds all expectations. We set out to provide a truly innovative mod that tickles the fancy of both enthusiast and casual vaper alike.

  10. So excited to try this new device. I’m especially interested in what kind of flavor this new coil structure will produce!

  11. 4 years ago my first “real” Vape mod was the Innokin Coolfire 4 40 watt mod. Since then I have become a high wattage VapeR and Innokin generally stayed in the 75 watt or below market…This new Proton mod looks awesome and I know it will be well built coming from Innokin. Will just the mod only without tank also be on sale?

  12. Hi, I recently picked up an Oceanus kit and I was wondering if the new scion will have a rebuildable deck? I would love to have the whole kit if so. If not will I be able to buy to mod separate?

  13. Please tell us when this beauty is going to be available for order… I’ve been holding out for weeks and i need a new mod as my old mod’s fire button is breaking, and dont want to have to order something else instead of this. Can you give us an idea of how long? One of the previous comments said keep an eye out in the new few weeks and that was from April 5th…

    • Hello Zach,

      Batches are being shipped out to Innokin distributors as we speak! Not much longer now before they will be available to order. Do let me know what you think of it once you pick one up :)

  14. Hey was wondering where I could order one of these right now?? I can’t seem to find anywhere that even has them in stock right now:(

    • Hi Peter,

      They are still on preorder and are shipping to authorized Innokin distributors worldwide right now! Expect to see them available for purchase in the very near future. Thanks so much for your support!

  15. When will this be available? Is it only for the UK? Or US as well? I’m in the US and really want one.

    • Hi Kaycee,

      The Proton will be available worldwide. It’s releasing extremely soon! Keep your eyes peeled for it to be in stock at your favorite authorized Innokin distributor. Thank you!

  16. When will this amazing piece be available for sale??

    • Hello Zach,

      Very soon! In fact, many of our authorized distributors are taking preorders. The Proton is sure to be a huge hit, and the first batch is likely to go fast, so don’t miss your chance :)

  17. Are the coils for the scion tank compatible with the scion 2 tank???

  18. is the Proton coming out on may21 ? and were cani preordered the proton mod kit

  19. Hi team.
    I live in oz and currently using the kroma+zenith which i love and cant recomend enough? have been researching for a while about a DL setup? stumbled across a review about the new proton? so i am going to stick with the brand i can rely on.. so soon as available in ?? in gettin one? cheers

  20. My last vape the 510 thread on the mod broke off because it was glued on. will I have the same issue with the Innokin Proton?

  21. Can’t wait any longer please hurry, and what batteries do you recommend for it?

  22. Will Sony VTC5a 18650 batteries be appropriate for this device?

    Nominal capacity: 2500mAh
    Rated capacity: 2500mAh
    25A max continuous discharge
    18mm diameter
    65mm length
    Nominal voltage: 3.6V
    Charge voltage: 4.20+/-0.05
    Cut-off voltage: 2.5V
    Flat Top

  23. When I was looking for info on the plexus coils all I could find was the .15 resistance so I was going to pick up a few of the Sony VTC5a batteries for the Proton because they should have the power to push the .15ohm Plexus coils to their limit

  24. Will this work with the iSub coils and tanks? I have a small stock pile of those and don’t want them to go to waste.

  25. I noticed on “My Vapor Store” and other vendors. The proton comes in both “black” and “gunmetal” color choices. I see the difference in color on the Proton mod, but in some images they both seem to come with a black scion ii. Other images seem to appear that the scion ii tank is in “gunmetal” (black/silver) which the scion ii doesn’t usually come in, which would be neat. What color of scion ii comes with the “gunmetal” proton mod? Am really wanting one and just want to be sure.

  26. Is there a white version coming out? I saw one in the initial pics of the announcement, for the Proton, on instagram.

  27. Will the bubble glass be sold separately? I bought the Scion II tank with Plexus coils hoping the bubble glass would be included but it wasn’t. Awesome tank and coils btw.

  28. Will a proton be available in a stand-alone model (not in kit)? And, if yes, where would I find one?

    • Hi Shane,

      Yes, the Proton will eventually be available as an Express kit (mod only). However, I cannot share any details in regards to the availability or release of the kit at this time. Thank you!

  29. I recently purchased the Innokin Proton Kit and i have to say, I’m impressed. I have been vaping for a while and tried all kinds of vapes and by far the Proton is the best one out there. It’s fully customizable to suit your specific vaping preferences. Also the joystick is a super neat feature that makes changing your settings a whole lot quicker and easier. I strongly encourage anyone that vapes to get the Innokin Proton.

  30. The Proton is a great mod but I wish it has a stealth mode! Would be possible to add that in a future update? And by the way where can you see if a new update is available?

    • Hi Mik,

      Future updates should be featured on this very product page.

      Thanks for the feedback regarding stealth mode. I agree with you, I think it’d make for a great addition to the Proton. Thank you and happy vaping!

  31. The USB charge port already failed on mine after 10 days, is this a typical problem?

    • Hi Nick,

      No, this is not typical. Contact your vendor you purchased it from for a replacement. All Innokin products have a 90 day limited warranty against manufacturer defects.

      If they won’t help, contact us with proof of purchase and a description of your problem at Apologies for the inconvenience.

  32. Hello,

    Looking at the Quick Start guide, it says, “For full content, please refer to user manual on the product page at INNOKIN.COM”
    I can’t find any full user manual for the Proton anywhere on this site, let alone this page which I believe it is referring to.

    Can you please direct me to this user manual?

    Thank you!

  33. Where can I find out what the latest available firmware is? Is there anyway I can sign up for notifications on when updates are available?

    • Greetings B0rkedBear,

      This page will update once new firmware has been released. You can subscribe to our email newsletter for all the latest updates regarding Innokin products and promotions. Visit our main site page ( to sign up to our email newsletter.

      Thank you for your interest!

  34. When to buy in Germany?

  35. Hi, Put it in my pocket on its own and the screen scratched up pretty bad. Not sure how, kind of annoying. Anyway is there a way of ordering a replacement screen assuming i can just replace it without messing with the lcd or control.. Ive only had it for a week.

  36. Battery wobble! Not sure if my device is defective or not but my batteries will wobble randomly and I have to take them out tap the device put them back in to fix the issue almost like the battery pins get stuck what can I do about this?

  37. My proton device seems to be having some type of contact issue on battery A. Is there a way to reset this? While I’m watching the battery A display bounces back and forth between 0% and 100% – not pressing the fire button. Changed the batteries and cleaned the contacts but still happening. What do I do?

  38. Will this mod work with your Ares RTA Kit?

    • Hi Brian,

      Absolutely! The Proton is compatible with practically any 510 threaded atomizer on the market. You can even customize your own wattage curve for your Ares coil with the Proton. Thanks for your interest!

  39. Nicholas Boullester June 21, 2018 at 1:39 am Reply

    would it be possible to get some specs on the chipset? I friend of mine has this mod and I jokingly said we need to put doom on it…. The problem is I can’t find any specs on the chip inside to see if it would even be possible to support it. Seeing as doom has been put on calculators, etc etc… this seems possible.

    • Hi Nicholas,

      Sorry to say that we cannot share that information. If you can manage to get Doom to run on it regardless, we would be very impressed, and love to see it!

  40. Plan on ordering, but I hear the screen scratches easily. Where can I get a screen cover and/or sleeve for this?

    • Hi M,

      Just purchase a customizable, cuttable screen protector and affix it to the Proton screen. So long as the joystick isn’t covered, it should work fine. Thanks!

  41. When will the Proton Express Kit be out? You announced it on Reddit a while ago.

  42. I’d like to second the call for adding a stealth mode to this mod. It’s really the only drawback for me with the Proton. Being able to vape without the screen lighting up at all is a key feature I look for in any mod I buy. I realize you can turn the brightness down to 10% and the timeout down to 3 seconds, but that’s not ideal. Really hope you guys can work in a stealth mode in the next firmware update. This mod looks fantastic otherwise!

  43. I just received the Proton and after using it for an hour, the screen won’t light up. I’ve turned it off and then back on, removed the batteries, still won’t light up. Is this a defective device, or is there a reset that might fix this?

    • Hi Brian,

      Can you verify that the batteries are functional? If you’ve ruled them out already, I would suggest getting the device exchanged for a new one. Contact the dealer you purchased it from our email us at to start a warranty claim. Apologies for the hassle!

  44. 316l mode isn’t working correctly. On my Coolfire Ultra my scion2 and rta with 316l ss vapes beautifully at 205’c but on the proton it’s way off. It’s like the TCR value for 316l mode is wrong. In TCR mode it’s fine when I set the TCR correctly. I’ve even tried my iSub V tank with SS BVC coils and it’s way off. I let my coils rest before attaching to my mod.

    • I would like to know what is going on that makes you think it isn’t working correctly? For starters 205c or roughly 400f is pretty low for a temp setting and if I recall correctly the coolfire ultra fired high when set to 205c. The coolfire ultra would actually fire the coil at 227c when set to 205c or 440f when set to 400f. The proton does not do that or at least doesn’t do that to such a degree so it may feel like it is throttling down much earlier than with the coolfire ultra. I have noticed this comment coming from a few people who all seem to be coming from fairly inaccurate devices. The temp control with the proton seems to match or exceed what I am used to with my DNA and yihi devices.

      • Hi Michael,

        With the Proton, firing in 316L mode is too hot. Much too hot. I have to turn it down to the minimum setting of 150’c and it’s still too hot for my coils, which work perfectly on other mods. I’m using TCR mode now, setting it to 88 and it vapes well. Maybe my Proton is faulty? Like it’s not calibrating correctly? I rest the coils to room temp before attaching to the mod.

  45. I just bought it and I am quite happy with it.
    But I miss a clock. Will you implement that via firmware update or will it lack that nice feature?
    Would be very nice to have that.

    • Hi Michael,

      Thank you for your support and purchase! I do not believe we are working on implementing a clock function for a future firmware update. Sorry about that!

  46. This is my first “grown-up ” vape! I would really appreciate the manual to be able to actually use it for a better experience than just a basic vape. The videos I found are really just reviews not explanations on how to use the “bells and whistles ” of the Proton. The best video on YouTube explaining anything is by Zophie Vapes.

    • Hi Tonia,

      You can access the menu by clicking the joystick button 3 times in rapid succession. Then, navigate using the joystick and clicking it in to confirm your selection. It should be fairly self explanatory after that. If you require more specific help, please let me know and I’ll follow up. Thanks for your purchase and support! <3

      • Frank, I have the same issue as Tonia. I just got this as my first real mod and I need an education to know how to set the settings. I understand how to use the menu and joystick, but I need guidance on what settings to choose. I am getting a very hot hit and not much vapor so my settings must be off but I don’t know what to change to get a better vape. I am using the coils that came with the kit, but I can’t find any info on what to set the Coil menu at (wattage/SS/Titanium/NI. I have tried lowering wattage down to 60 and temp control down to 300 but still getting a very hot hit so I can’t pull longer than a second or two. Is there a User Manual that explains all the options?

        • Hi David,

          Assuming you are using the Scion II, use standard wattage mode and start at 50w. Make sure your airflow control ring is open to your liking and up your wattage in increments of 2.5 up until you are most comfortable with your vape. Hope this helps.

  47. Hi,

    Is there any firmware updates available?

  48. Hello Frank I live in the U.S. and I cannot find the Proton mod just by itself without the tank anywhere. I only use rebuildables mostly just RDA’s but I would really like to get the Proton by itself. Can you tell me when the “express kits” for the Proton will be available here in the States?

  49. Hello, i got my Proton+Scion II kit today, and sadly i have some issue with it.

    I’m using Samsung 18650 25R batteries, i have 4 of them, and battery “B” shows as being depleted (red) even though the batteries are fully charged. I tried different combination with the 4 batteries, but “B” always shows in red.
    The mod seems to work fine, but i’m having some safety concerns.

    Is this a known issue ? And is it just a display bug ? Should i be worried ?


    • Hi Johnny,

      That’s a strange bug indeed. I don’t think it will cause any issues if it’s still vaping despite the false power indicator, but it’s worthy of being replaced by our manufacturer’s warranty if you so choose. Please contact us at with proof of purchase, a brief summary of the issue and pictures of the interface if you’d like to go that route. Sorry for the trouble.

    • after using the proton since early June, I’ve developed a similar issue but on the opposite side. Side A is now showing half depleted with fresh batteries. I’ve also tried multiple sets of batteries in different placements, but side A is always showing half (it kind of moves a little between 50 and 75 as i watch it). I even tried cleaning the battery contacts of the device and no luck.

      Waiting to hear back from the Innokin support channel….

  50. Like design, disappointed in quality. After about a month or so of use the device now shuts off on its own. I have a set of 18650 SONYVTC5 and a set of Samsung 25R. No matter which set I am using, same result. Example. I power it up (which I now have to do EVERY time) by clicking 3 times. I vape once or twice and set down on my desk. I watch the screen dim then turn off. I pick it up to use it, and its off. This is my first time trying a brand other than Kanger, which I am back to using today. I have no interest in returning item, not worth the effort. I simply wanted to post my opinion on product. A shame, great looking product!

  51. Hi
    I’ve had the proton for a week now and I love it but the screen has gone completely white and blank. I can still vape but have no access to the screen. It has not been dropped or exposed to any water.

    • Hey Ben,

      Sorry to hear about the issue you’re having with your Proton! Could you please take pictures of the issue and send them to our support email, They would like to see the issue first hand and will assist you in getting a replacement. Thanks.

  52. I’ve had this mod approximately a week ..for £60 I’m not overly impressed . The fire button has quite a bit of movement side to side . When I rub my finger lightly across the display screen there is movement and it makes a light clicking noise and the paint on the top of the mod is already wearing off after a week’s usage ..??

    • Hi Richard,

      Sorry to hear about your finish issues.

      Unfortunately, we do not cover aesthetic issues via our warranty. I would suggest being more cautious with the mod as you would with any electronic device- handle it gently and it’ll last you a long time. Be careful stuffing it into pockets with loose change or other abrasive materials as this will damage the finish. Thanks!

  53. Hi there. I am using the proton kit now for one month and besides that it lacks a clock
    Which I find very disappointing, the paint (gun metal) starts to peel off at the parts where my fingers are most of the time. I am taking the
    Proton around in the pockets of my jeans and in my backpack (in a small, soft pouch).
    Second thing is, that I got three times a black piece of what I think is part of the coils that has
    Tiny holes in it in my mouth while vaping. I guess its parts of the mesh.

  54. Is there a brand of 18650s that are recommended? I bought some, put them in correctly and the battery door won’t close.
    Help please

  55. Hi!
    Do you work with retailers in Russia?
    Innokin production seems very much underrepresented, but demand on devices is high.
    I can get almost any device easily here, but not Innokin’s (i found literally two in some almost shady shops and Proton is overpriced there).
    So, are you planning to ship these to Russia?

  56. Any firmware updates yet , love the device by the way been working great for me . Although I do love the plexus coil very much currently running the vandy vape triple rta powers it like a charm. You say use Sony batteries I am using 18650 lithicores will tose be ok ? Thank you I’ve tried other products and always seem to go back to innokin :-)

    • Hey Joe,

      No firmware updates yet. Glad to hear you’re enjoying the plexus coil!

      In regards to batteries, it’s important to know how high of an amperage rate they can support. Most batteries suitable for the Proton are 25-30A continous and 40A peak. Lithicore should be ok if they are within that amperage range. Thanks!

  57. Hi there,
    Really love the look and feel of that new innokin.
    I started using it today and I am experiencing two issues I hope you may help with. First it gets damn hot I put it down pick it up again and after each puff it gets mega hot. Wattage see at 40 as im scared to go over in case I burn something.
    Secondly, the liquid escape via the vent so I now have to keep it close which detracts from the whole experience. I had my Proton in my pocket with the vents opened has a puff back in pyjama pocket and was burnt by hot juice coming out of the vent.
    I always used Innokin and never experienced this before. Please help as I may be doing something wrong? I’m using efest batteries

    • Hi Nick,

      Please only use genuine authentic high quality 18650 batteries with your Proton. Efest are not a reliable manufacturer and could be the issue of the heat. Try Sony, Samsung, LG, or Ampking instead.

  58. Hi,

    the support link redirects to a surveymonkey site, where can I check the firmware for the Proton?


    • Hi Paulo,

      The surveymonkey should be a form to fill out to contact our support. Please email us at if you have any warranty or support related issues that need addressing.

      The Proton does not have a firmware update at this time. When one is released, a download link will be found at this page. Hope this helps!

  59. Hello,

    where is it possible to find and download firmware updates? Mainly for Proton, which has issues with TC? :)

    • Hi Jan,

      Proton firmware updates will be found on this page once a firmware update has been released. As of today, there has yet to be a firmware update released for our Proton mod.

  60. Love the Proton so far. Just a couple questions:
    1. How do I lock/unlock joystick so I don’t accidentally change settings?
    2. Does Proton have battery protection from over- draining battery… will it shut off automatically when battery is too low? Or should I just change out batteries when indicators are red?

    • Hi Kat,

      There is no stick lock, however it requires more than one input to start actually making changes to your settings. It’s hard to happen in a pocket or bag.

      The Proton does have voltage protection. Typically the battery indicator will start flashing when the batteries are extremely low in power. If they get too low, the mod will turn off entirely. At this point, the batteries should be charged. But it’s best to charge them before they get that low to maximize your battery lifespan.
