Exxus GO Review
TVG reviews products
The Good: Very simple to use | Rubber body feels good to hold | Glass mouthpiece provides some cooling
The Bad: Vapor is always hot and harsh | Only one voltage setting | Not very portable | Mouthpiece connection feels loose
The Bottom Line: The Exxus Go is a good idea on paper but the loose mouthpiece connection and lack of voltage calibration make it a mediocre wax vape. That means you only get hot, harsh vapor during each session. So, if you prefer smooth, flavorful vapor—and I do—you’re out of luck.

Kit and Accessories
- Exxus Go
- One extra triple quartz coil
- Curved glass mouthpiece
- Dab tool
- Magnetic base
- Micro USB charging cable
Compatibility: The Exxus Go is only compatible with wax extracts.
You can get replacements for all of the included parts and accessories from Exxus, but more interesting are the optional accessories that are available. If you find the vapor too hot and harsh, then you can buy a water bubbler for some extra cooling action.
Another option is the low-temperature kit, which consists of a quartz bowl without the triple quartz coils, and a shorter mouthpiece. Keep in mind that there is no temperature control on the Go, so you can only control how you receive the vapor and not how hot it gets.
Design and Features
General Design: If the Exxus Go looks familiar, that is because it is the same model as the Atmos Q3, and as such, shares all the same strengths and weaknesses as that vaporizer. It has a slim, rubber body that feels good to hold and stays cool to the touch. The main feature is the glass mouthpiece that’s curved at the top. It provides a long air path that keeps the vapor pure and cools it down a little.
That mouthpiece is the device’s strength and weakness because it never feels like it’s securely attached to the rest of the Go. It uses an O-ring to connect to the battery, but that connection always feels too loose. The mouthpiece tends to move around while you’re inhaling. If you hold it to lift the device, there is a good chance that the rest of the device will fall away.
The magnetic base works as expected, but you have to wonder why they didn’t just design a flat base on the device instead. The single power button means that the Go is very easy to use whether you’re a vaping veteran or a beginner.
Portability: The Go is small enough to be a portable, but the long glass mouthpiece precludes that from being a realistic proposition. Aside from the obvious fragility, you would need to carry it separately because of the connection issues I’ve already mentioned.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Mouthpiece: You can easily use soap and water to clean the mouthpiece by soaking it in that mixture for a few hours.
Atomizer: The coils and chamber are cleaned via the usual procedure. That is by dipping a q-tip in isopropyl alcohol and then using it to wipe down the coils and chamber.
How to Use
- Remove the glass mouthpiece, dab some wax onto the coils, and then replace the mouthpiece.
- Press the power button five times to turn on the device.
- Inhale from the mouthpiece.
Voltage Selection: The Exxus Go has a single, unspecified voltage setting.
Performance and Vapor Quality
Vaporizer Performance: The Go only takes about five seconds to heat up so each session gets started quickly. Also, the rubberized body means that the device never feels hot to the touch while you’re vaping.
Vapor Quality: If you like hot, harsh, intense, vapor and big clouds, then the Exxus Go is for you. If you prefer milder, more flavorful vapor, then it isn’t. Simple as that. The triple quartz coils provide serious heat and the single voltage setting seems to be quite high. With no way to calibrate the temperature, you are left with harsh vapor during every session.
The firing mechanism doesn’t help because the Go heats up for five seconds and then cuts off. That means you can’t improvise some makeshift temperature control by taking short draws or pressing the power button intermittently. You either like the default setting or you don’t.
Battery Performance: This is quite good because the 1100 mAh can last for days before it needs to be recharged. The only issue is that the battery indicator can be inaccurate, so it can be hard to gauge how much charge is left in the battery.
Exxus Go vs KandyPens K-Box vs Pulsar APX Wax
Unlike the Go, the K-Box and the APX Wax are both more traditional box mod style vapes, but, like the Go, they both use triple quartz coils. The APX Wax is most similar to the Go because it has the same-sized battery and a single voltage setting, but its boxy shape makes it more convenient to carry around and use. The K-Box has four voltage settings, making it the most customizable of the three vapes here.
|Exxus Go||KandyPens K-Box||Pulsar APX Wax|
|Compatible with||Wax concentrates||Wax concentrates||Wax concentrates|
|Atomizer Type||Triple quartz coil||Triple quartz coil||Triple quartz coil|
|Number of Voltage Settings||One||Four||One|
|Battery Capacity||1100 mAh||900 mAh||1100 mAh|
|Price||$100 from Vape-Smart||$75 from KandyPens||$60 from Vape-Smart|
The Exxus Go could serve as the transition between vape pens and e-rigs, but the vapor is too hot and there is no way to calibrate its intensity. So it lacks the convenience and portability of vape pens and the temperature calibration of e-rigs. That means the Exxus Go is stuck in a no-man’s land where it doesn’t really serve a purpose.
Who is it for: Vapers looking to move on from vape pens and transition to more intense vaping experiences.
Who is it NOT for: Vapers who want to exert some voltage control over their sessions. Anyone who favors flavor quality over intensity and big clouds.
