Let’s take a look at the highly unorthodox MOTI Beaker 5000 disposable vape.
MOTI have a mission to bring positive change and happiness to ex smokers and those wishing to quit. Their Beaker 5000 disposable vape may bring a few chuckles as well as the inevitable barrage of furrowed brows.
Let’s get the controversy out of the way. In no way can I endorse this product on the grounds of design. It’s not reaching when I state the product heavily resembles a tiny tot’s beaker.
That’s potential bad news and does nothing to enhance the positive image of vaping.
..Just wanted to clear that up. I think MOTI should know better and the product scores an emphatic zero on design.
Ok. Let’s lighten the mood and get on with the review. We’re all about the flavour, cloud production, reliability, battery life and number of puffs here.
What Can We Expect From the MOTI Beaker 5000 Disposable Vape?
With a 50mg nicotine salt content don’t expect to find it on the shelves of any reputable UK vape outlet. It’s not TPD compliant. At the time of writing there isn’t a 20mg strength alternative either.
The MOTI Beaker 5000 disposable vape is said to last for anything up to 5000 puffs. That’s one hell of a figure and may be pushing things given there’s a 12ml juice capacity.
The integrated 650mAh battery is therefore rechargeable via Type C USB on the base. Although there’s more than enough space in the extravagant looking box, you don’t get the cable.
At the heart of the disposable there’s a 1.1ohm mesh coil complete with pure organic cotton for wicking.
Being of beaker design there’s some heavy tapering going on. At the top it measures 29mm and at the base 48mm.
It has a depth of 30mm and the mouthpiece is restricted to 5mm for that all important MTL (mouth to lung) vape.
..Please don’t try to direct lung (DTL) 50mg salt nicotine. You’ll thank me in the long run! lol. We tell you what the terms MTL and DTL mean in our Guide To Vapes Styles.
It’s nice to see that MOTI have included adequate battery venting on the underside of the disposable.
The MOTI Beaker 5000 disposable is available in 10 flavours. These are mostly fruity types with a dose of cooling agent thrown in. I did notice that it appears the Peach Ice (under review) has been swapped for Aloe Grape on the official Moti site.
With no quoted flavour descriptions I’m vaping solo today.
- Battery capacity: 650mAh rechargeable
- E-liquid capacity: 12ml
- Nicotine strength: 50mg salt nicotine
- Puffs: 5000
- Coil resistance: 1.1ohm mesh with organic cotton
- Output power: 11.7W
MOTI Beaker 5000 – Citric Berries
This is a very fruity vape and there seems to be a fair bit going on. Predominant is the taste of Raspberry which is encapsulated in copious levels of sweetness.
The early hit of cooling ice on the rear of the throat isn’t over pronounced although it will still bounce around on the palate as an after effect to the vape.
I can pick out some background hints of Strawberry but these are of the sweetie, generic variety oft associated with disposable vapes. Designed for the masses not the connoisseur.
It took a while to wrap my head around it but the general underlying theme is one of bitterness and sourness. I may be reaching when I state this but I’m convinced of the presence of Lemon and Orange.
Both seem to lunge out around midway through the exhale and would certainly suggest the citric nature of the vape.
Citric Berries is a little too artificial and pungent for my liking. That’s not to say it won’t have its fans. Some folk prefer an ‘in your face’ flavour.
MOTI Beaker 5000 – Lemon Ice Cream
I’ve been looking forwards to this one so did Lemon Ice Cream live up to expectation?
Yes and very much so. This is a fantastic rendition of the fruit. The vape simply oozes flavour and on a very consistent level from inhale to the after taste finale.
I do have to make it clear though. This isn’t your average freshly squeezed lemon – that would be odd when combined with cream. Instead what we get is a pureed version that falls delicately into the hands of a well mastered mix of milk and cream.
So the exhale is silky smooth, flavoursome and with just the right amount of sweetness. In my opinion this elevates Lemon Ice Cream to the status of a true dessert style vape.
What’s more, because the dairy content is so pronounced, the cooling agent really does give the impression of.. well.. Ice Cream.
I rarely find dessert content this appealing from a disposable vape but MOTI have well and truly nailed it. Excellent work – I can’t fault it.
MOTI Beaker 5000 – Peach Ice
Instantly identifiable and there’s an incredible amount of sweetness drawn up during the MTL inhale. That does put me off because it zaps the juiciness usually associated with Peach.
The flavour created is too intense for my liking and carries a lot of acidity which contributes to the sickly sweet sensation I get. This version of the fruit is more about the sourness than the Peach itself.
As a consequence, the inhale is over powering and a weird reaction occurs when sourness clashes with an icy cold blast.
Admittedly there’s no mistaking Peach as the key player but (as is often the case with disposables) it’s synthetic and chemical tasting. Those are the two culprits required to turn an approachable vape into a cringeworthy one.
I’m sure many vapers will disagree with my thoughts but I’m afraid I’ve been here too many times. I’d like to see some originality and inspiration brought to a fruit that in reality is succulent and mouth wateringly tasty.
So unfortunately there’s very little chance of me recharging the battery for Peach Ice.
Battery performance, Charging and Total Number of Puffs
Ok. It’s taken a lot longer than expected in coming up with a few simple observations. To be honest, I was seriously beginning to question my own sanity! lol
It took a grand total of six vaping sessions, spread out over four days to reach my conclusions. I managed 24 hrs vaping from the factory charge and the same after plugging into a wall socket.
When the Moti Beaker 5000 needs charging, the LED will flash 10 times. While charging the LED remains lit and after 90 minutes (when the battery is fully charged), turns off.
Working on my own vaping patterns the disposable produced a total of 3,456 puffs. So despite how long it takes to get through the 12ml of e-juice it’s still falling short of the suggested number of puffs.
Final Review Verdict
The MOTI Beaker 5000 disposable vape will provide a very decent MTL vape. The restriction is pitch perfect. The vapour production is suitably thin, wispy and stealth like.
It weighs next to nothing and despite the odd build conforms perfectly to the shape of the hand when held. In other words, it’s very easy to conceal. That’s in case you were concerned about odd looks. Trust me, I got my fair share! lol
It also took a few hours to register how comfortable the material feels. It seems to have a thin rubberised outer coating that’s quite sensual to the touch.
..What does that tell you about me?! lol
When it comes to flavour it does deliver but baring Lemon Ice Cream the MOTI Beaker 5000 suffers the same fate as many other disposables. Too much sweetness combined with artificial tasting fruits and an incessant need to add ice to everything.
Of course the newer or casual vaper won’t be concerned by that. There’s enough flavour intensity in the range to hold their attention and hopefully keep them off the cigs.
Yes, it’s not offering the full 5000 puffs promised but given that the Moti Beaker 5000 is likely to last for anything up to a week and perform consistently well throughout, I have to recommend it on value for money alone.
