Notion MTL Mech Mod Review

Notion MTL Mech Mod Review

There are a lot of different types of mechanical mods available for mech lovers. Box mods and tube mods both offer single battery or dual battery versions and can be had in series or parallel battery configurations. However, one thing that has been missing from the mech lineup is something small. 

There have been a few 18350 mechs out in the past but they have been hard to source. A new generation of smaller mechs are out and offer the features loved in the larger versions.

The Notion MTL mech mod from Timesvape is another great design by Stan from Tenacious TX Vapes. This little hybrid style tube mod is a seriously solid little device and can take 18350 or 20350 size batteries. I’ve been using mine with the more commonly found 18350 cells. The mod has a constant contact switch that is extremely well designed. No adjustment is required for battery rattle, the spring loaded switch self-adjusts to keep the battery snug in the tube. Each switch has a deep engraved serial number. I would describe the stiffness of the switch as ‘medium’ and the throw is about 2mm. The button rides on rails and fires every time, no matter how you press it. The Notion’s switch assembly can even be used on your existing Dreamer mech. They are available to be purchased separately if you want to upgrade your Dreamer to have constant contact.

Each mod comes with two different beauty rings to screw on top, a 22mm and a 24mm version giving a clean sleek look to a variety of atty pairings. The tube has two vent holes at the top and the switch designs also allows for venting at the bottom. The Notion measures 57mm tall to the top of the hybrid or 60mm to the top of the beauty ring, and weighs in at 114 grams.

Honestly, I did expect to like this mod but not nearly as much as I do. Timesvape puts out some quality mechs and I was very interested in the novelty aspect of having a mech considerably smaller than the single and stacked tubes that I usually use. I have a lot of mechs, a lot, and I rotate use regularly as it’s hard to choose a favourite. So I figured I’d try out the Notion and if it was good, it’d be put in the rotation. But I find myself using this all the time. I’ve still got my other mechs on the go but I’ve been using the Notion pretty regularly.

It could be partly that I’m liking revisiting MTL vaping after all this time. The Reload MTL turned that around for me, I’m still massively impressed that I can’t get that thing to leak. But the mod itself is also very comfortable, really well designed, and I like the switch. I like having both an MTL and DTL set-up on the go; I’m enjoying the variety. I think if you’re a mech lover like myself you won’t regret having a Notion MTL in your collection.
