Aspire Speeder Starter Kit Review

The Aspire Speeder 200W mod starter kit arrived on my desk with a considerable amount of fanfare, and that’s usually when my hype detectors turn red. Thankfully, there is no hype with the Speeder, and its companion Athos tank, just really great vaping performance.

I have a confession. I have never once used an Aspire mod. Not for any particular reason, mind you. It’s just that through all of them – Archon, Pegusus, NX and Zelos, among others – I’ve always considered Aspire more of a “tank company.”

speeder revvo batteries

No, they’re not perfect; that’s why we write these lengthy reviews. But for all of the devices that cross my path each month, few of them are as consistent as the Speeder, and fewer offer this much value for the price. Here’s why…

A Starter Kit …. Don’t Judge a Book…

The Aspire Speeder Starter Kit packaging isn’t going to win awards for its box design, which features imagery that suggests a much smaller, less substantial device within. The black, spartan box doesn’t do much to sell the mod, which is much more elegant than the pictures imply.

Inside, you’ll see why. My deep matte black test model practically melded with the foam insert. But once I removed it, I was greeted with a sleek, mature-looking mod with just a touch of gloss amid the soft-coated aluminum exterior.

speeder revvo components


In addition to the grip-friendly texture, the Aspire Speeder has some cut-out texture on the sides of the device, which feel good, but actually serve to confuse the user. The fire key is hidden into this design element, which is identical on both sides. If not for the Aspire logo on the flush fire bar/button, it would be impossible to distinguish it within the design.
In the hand, the dual-18650 Speeder has a nice ergonomic feel. It’s not weighty, but feels substantial and durable. The soft coating also feels smooth, but is just grippy enough to ensure a sense of confidence in the hand.

The rest of the visual presentation is standard. A front-placed up/down control button is located underneath the bright 0.96” OLED screen, and both are strong, if not a little predictable and boring. But, given the sleek, understated design of the Aspire Speeder, it was probably intentional.

One nice usability element is the accelerometer in the display that determines which way the display faces, depending on how the Speeder is held. It’s a minor enhancement, but at this stage of the game in vape innovation, these small touches stand out.

The offset 510 connection is press-fit, but solid, and most tanks sat flush without concern. Ironically, the included Athos sub-ohm tank did not, but we’ll cover that in a bit.

I do wish Aspire positioned the connection in the center of the device, rather than offset, since the form factor just screams for symmetry. The Vaporesso Revenger benefits from this positioning, and I think the svelte exterior of the Aspire Speeder would have been more complete had they gone this route.

Athos – a most noble musketeer

The included Aspire Athos sub-ohm tank is a bona fide flavor machine, and is a welcome addition to this package. Not only does it look amazing atop the Speeder, but it complements just about any mod with which you use it.

With the same well-machined, lightweight aluminum construction as the Speeder, the 4mL Athos is a unique, striking tank which makes for an eye-catching, matte combination that will stand out against the usual sea of polished metal finishes on your desk.

Though the top-fill cap and bottom airflow aren’t anything special, they work extremely well, even if the ARC ring is removable, and can come off when turning it. It’s not my favorite design, and was a rare black mark against the Athos.

But I loved the way the aluminum frame protects the glass without blocking any view inside the tank. Not only do you not need a vape band with the Athos, but you won’t want to use one. It’s that attractive.


The included Aspire A5 penta-coil and A3 triple-coil (both Kanthal) are thirsty monsters, but they pay back the user with thick, voluminous clouds that don’t wane until the tank is nearly empty. They’re also extremely long-lasting, as both of mine gave a solid week of consistent vaping before any muted tastes entered the fold.
Of course, looks only get you so far, so I was thrilled to find that the Athos really delivers on the flavor and vapor front. In fact, I would argue this tank performs with the best tanks in this category, out-flavoring my Cleito EXO, and producing as much vapor as my OBS-V tank.

No, a week isn’t the BEST longevity we’ve seen from a replaceable coil, but in this day and age, with more moderate (read: not for testing) use, it was impressive.

It should also be noted that the recommendations for wattage were pinpoint accurate. The A5 is rated for 100-120 watts, and absolutely sang at 110. At this level, the vape was warm and flavorful, but not overly powerful, which I prefer.

The more-conservative A3 is rated for 60-75 watts, and I found its sweet spot to also be right in the middle, at 70 watts. Though this was (obviously) a much cooler vape, it was no less flavorful. Because I vape at relatively moderate wattages, this was my preferred coil, due to its reduced e-liquid consumption, and slightly more nuanced flavor. But these two coils really show off the versatility of the Athos sub-ohm tank.

I have only two real complaints about the Athos. First, the installed plastic top cap, while attractive and cool on the lips, is far too wide. The included Delrin alternative is much more comfortable to use, and doesn’t have the scratchy plastic threading (which is just bound to wear away with frequent fills). Plus, Aspire didn’t include a 510-adapter, so if you’re going to use the Athos, you’re going to do it the way Aspire intended.

Secondly, the loose airflow control ring doesn’t do a very good job sealing off the vacuum, meaning the Athos leaks more than most modern tanks. Several presumably successful refills quietly became sticky, flooded disasters – usually when the coil was still breaking in. Over time, the problem dissipated, but the sticky memories remain.

These are minor quibbles, because when the Athos fires, it does so on all cylinders, and provides an amazing vape. If an RBA head was included, it would be a perfect package in my eyes. And I’m confident many of you will agree.

A match made in heaven…

Too often, we receive “starter kits” that are little more than random groupings of products. The Aspire Speeder Starter Kit truly feels like a cohesive pairing, and yes, they do work better together, than they do with other devices. No, it’s not significant, nor should it prevent you from using either the Speeder or the Athos with other elements of your collection. But there’s something about a well-matched pair that just works.

The Speeder itself vaped well with any tank or dripper I through at it. In fact, I HAD to try other tanks, because the afore-mentioned A3 and A5 coils are both Kanthal, meaning temp control was off the table for the Athos.

Using a collection of MTL and sub-ohm tanks, I found the Speeder to work best as a straight wattage device. It’s not that the temp control was difficult to use or control, but rather because it seemed a touch underpowered when compared to wattage mode. Perhaps Aspire knew this going in, and made the decision to only include Kanthal coils as a result.

Using TCR mode, I had the best experience in temp control, and the nickel and titanium RDA coils I threw at it performed admirably. The Speeder seemed to throw a touch more power in these modes, than with the preset Ni/SS/Ti settings. Again, not a huge difference, but worth noting nonetheless.

Moving back to wattage mode, I tried a bunch of unique tanks on the Aspire Speeder mod – which I admit I chose as much for their own aesthetics as their vape quality – and the results were outstanding.

speeder revvo specs

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Kits.  

Using such relics as the Kayfun V3 Mini, the UD EZ post-less RTA, the OBS Engine and the Digiflavor Pharaoh dripper tank, all vaped smoother than warm butter. And they all added something to the Speeder’s look and feel.

More importantly, they all showed off how well the Speeder vaped. The device easily reached and achieved 200 watts on two 18650 cells, and didn’t stutter once. Plus, the Speeder’s aluminum chassis stayed cool throughout, even when consistently pumping out 150 watts or more throughout an evening.

Battery life on the Speeder is also quite good. Not the best I’ve seen, mind you, but nonetheless impressive for a high-wattage mod. I have taken the Speeder out for several day trips and had no problem making it through an evening without swapping batteries.

Perhaps my only minor complaint about the Speeder is the afore-mentioned cutouts on the side of the device, which occasionally make it difficult to locate the fire button. And we’re talking about a three-second dilemma, folks – barely worth mentioning here.

Aspire Speeder Starter Kit – Wrapping up…

The Aspire Speeder Starter Kit is a fantastic offering from a company I admittedly never credited for innovation. Between the Speeder’s looks and performance, and the Athos’ tremendous flavor and vapor production, I can see the Speeder replacing a lot of scratched up, aging Aliens and Sigelei 213s.

With its ideal form factor, performance to spare, and a great price point, the Aspire Speeder Starter Kit should be on the short list of anyone looking for a new, powerful palm- and pocket-friendly device.

VGOD PRO 150 Box Mod Review

Today I want to share my impressions of the VGOD PRO 150 Box Mod. VGOD PRO 150 is a stylish, powerful and very compact box mod on two replaceable 18650 batteries with fast charging and a balancer.

Box mod comes in a handy rather large case. In the complete set only actually box mod, two stickers and the instruction.

Outside, a stylishly designed cardboard box. I note that it is quite large. From the bottom there is a check scratch code.

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Devices.

 

Inside the box is a convenient case of black color. It looks like a bag for photo technics, rigid inserts, made of durable fabric. In the future, this case is useful. It can easily carry and store various tools, batteries and other small items.

vgod

A silver-colored box came to me. The surface looks beautiful, prints do not catch, not slippery, pleasant to the touch.

vgod 150

A quite reasonable value of capacity for 2 battery modes is stated – 150 watts and this will be enough for the absolute majority of people. Box mod is really very compact and it is convenient to carry it in your pocket. Angles and faces are rounded and there is no sense of angularity. I can not say that the form is the most ergonomic for me, but nevertheless it does not cause any complaints either – it’s quite convenient to keep.

On the side faces is really a real carbon. It has a pleasant relief. Box mod looks very solid, stylish and beautiful. The assembly is quite good. Inscriptions and engraving do not strain, but rather create the impression of an exclusive and expensive thing. The screen is small, quite bright. Although it is drowned in the back of the case, it is additionally protected by glass. Although the screen size is the same as that of the I Stick, but the main figures are slightly larger and read well. Fonts are nice and smooth.

vgod mod

The connector has a fairly wide steel pad. The positive pin is spring-loaded. All atoms are wound without a gap. Contacts are reliable, the insulation is not torn. The top contacts slightly spring. There is an indication of the correct polarity of the batteries.

vgod pro 150

In general, everything looks cultured and neat. Ribbon for convenient extraction of batteries has a long length.

Everything is very compact. Batteries are installed quite tightly (you need to insert exactly), but there are no special problems.

vgod case

Attention: the box mod uses a serial connection of batteries. For maximum efficiency

It is desirable to use the batteries that are the same in type and condition. Use only high-current batteries, (For example: Sony VTC4, Sony VTC5, Sony VTC5A, Sony VTC6, LG HE2, LG HE4, LG HG2, Samsung R25, Samsung 30Q, Sanyo UR18650NSX).

The VGOD PRO 150 has a quick built-in charging. The USB connector is located in a convenient location. Charge works neatly, there is support for the function of the pasture. The control charge of the unbalanced batteries showed the result: 4.19V and 4.19V, which means the presence of a real balance bar in the box mode and it was very pleased.

vgod vap

There is a slight delay after pressing the Fire button (not critical), but overall the board is decent and it honestly gives out the claimed capacity. Resistance measurement is accurate. Straight line output across the entire voltage range. The board has excellent characteristics: maximum output current of 50A, resistance support from 0.08 Ohm (0.07 Ohms for TC modes and Meh mod). The mode of meh mod itself is first encountered in a two-hockey fashion. And the most interesting is that in this mode it works as a meh mode with a parallel connection of batteries, although in other modes of mode it uses a serial connection. Testing showed that, as in most other two-bubble modulators, there is no booster (boosting) and it is really possible to obtain a maximum voltage of only about 7 V. Therefore, a maximum power of 150 watts can be obtained in the resistance range: 0.07-0.33 Ω. Temperature control works fine, but only on nickel and titanium. There is no support for stainless steel and manual installation of TCR.

The box mod’s cover is quite massive, but overall the box mod has quite a comfortable weight for the fashion on 2 18650 batteries.

Box mod is really very compact. This is probably the smallest in height box mod with such layout of the board layout.

Although the box is very compact, but with the now popular atoms with a diameter of 24 mm, it perfectly matches, without overhangs and gaps.

Nixies, minuses and pluses VGOD PRO 150 Box Mod:

If it was a budget box, then there would be no complaints against him. But since this mod is not cheap, then the requirements for it will be corresponding:

– The only thing I did not like was the buttons. They are chrome plated. Why were not they made of stainless steel, too?

– The board is decent and honest, but it is inferior in terms of speed and functionality to expensive cards (for example, the DNA200 board). Temperature control only on nickel and titanium. There is no support for stainless steel and manual installation of TCR. Also there is no stealth mode and screen flip function. It is not clear whether there is a firmware update function (apparently it does not exist either).

+ Solid and stylish look. Lateral inserts of real carbon fiber (embossed and pleasant to the touch). A very compact size and at the same time it is possible to use atoms with a diameter of 24 mm without overhangs and gaps.

+ Honest board with excellent performance and smooth linear output over the entire voltage range. The maximum output current is 50A, support for resistances from 0.08 ohm. The mode of meh mod itself is first encountered in a two-hockey fashion. And the most interesting is that in this mode it works as a meh mode with a parallel connection of batteries, although in other modes of mode it uses a serial connection. There is a mode with heating power setting on every second.

+ Steel connector and spring-loaded positive pin with long stroke. Excellent implementation. All atoms are tightened tightly and without gaps, but the lid will not be scratched, because the pad is made of steel wide.

+ Two replaceable 18650 batteries, convenient and fast replacement. Good implementation of the battery cover.

+ Excellent fast built-in charging (1.7A) with real balance. USB connector in a convenient location. Support the function of the pasture.

SUMMARY:

Box mod is very beautiful and stylish, compact and powerful. Quick built-in charging with an honest balance. In general, the mod is very good, but considering the shortcomings, I think the price is too high. If money is not a problem or the price becomes more acceptable, then you can take it. In any case, this is an exclusive device, and it’s up to you to decide whether to purchase it.

VGOD Elite Mech Mod Review

Full review of the VGOD Elite Mech Mod

In-Depth Review of the VGod Elite Mech Mod

If your a mechanical mod fan, then the chances are you’ve tried the odd mechanical mod or two! Most have pretty basic functionality with somewhat cool designs, however, when it comes to the VGOD Elite Mech Mod, nothing else comes close. This vaping masterpiece has the quality that only true vapers can appreciate with only the top quality materials used to not only improve the look but to enhance your vaping experience. If your looking for a high-quality mechanical mod, then you’ve found it with the VGod Elite.

Please Note: Mechanical mods are unregulated, so it’s important you have some idea about the resistance of the coils you use vs. the power of the battery. If your unsure, then check out our guide on mechanical mods.

The packaging, case and spares of the Elite Mech mod

Packaging

As soon as this thing comes to your door, it just sings “quality”. In my view, whenever I see expensive packaging like this I just wish they put the money on the device itself, in the VGOD Elite though, their strategy is not to take any shortcuts, and that includes the packaging!

You get a basic cardboard box which is huge! Almost the size of a shoe box with pictures of the Elite Mod on, but inside sits a canvas like satchel that opens using a zipper, this is pretty big considering the size of the mod, but also has pockets and other useful compartments to hold spare batteries, other mods and just a general convenient box to house your mods when travelling!

Inside the satchel features; instructions, a tie pin with the VGod logo (I don’t know why), a spare gold spring and the mech mod itself!

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Devices.

Design

Firing button on the VGOD Elite Mech ModThis is a copper mechanical mod with a black cerakote coating, which is probably why it feels pretty heavy, weighing in at around 0.2kg. The paint job looks like a dull black powder coat but the cerakote makes it hard wearing, but also less likely to drop due to its anti-slip properties. Along the shaft has the logo engraved out of the coating to reveal the copper, which looks pretty cool, it has a copper firing button with carbon fiber inlay making the best possible connection with the battery. The top has engraving stating it’s an original VGOD USA product and has a hybrid 510 connection, which basically means there’s no pin inside the thread to make connection to your tank pin and the battery, that is, the pin on the tank will make direct contact with the battery and thus needs to be protruding. This is a great design because wherever they can limit the resistance of the power going through the device the better the device is!

Hybrid Pin connectionSafety Checkpoint! Make sure the tank your using has a pin that is protruding from the base and not spring loaded or flush. You only want the positive pin to be hitting the positive side of the battery. If both the pin and the housing around the pin (which is the negative) both hit the battery then that tank is going to get hot and can be dangerous.

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Devices.

Power

The Elite mod holds a single 18650 battery but has no regulation so you can’t control the voltage. For this reason, it’s probably best to put the least amount of resistance in your coil to get a quick ramp-up time. Remember the voltage is going to be high, with no 510 pin to loose voltage, and superconductive copper materials as connections, this is the best you’re going to get. If your not a fan of unregulated mechanical mods, then we suggest sticking to the box mod vapes instead.

Pros

  • Performance hard hitter up there with the best
  • Switch is smooth and great connections never had a miss fire
  • Quality of the material ouses quality along with the badge and logo placement
  • Carrying case is handy for both this mod and all your spare mods, batteries and tanks!
  • Self-adjusting to fit battery, simply unscrew the cap, place your battery in and it fits with no rattle

 

Cons

  • Tapering design may not be liked by everyone
  • Clear coating on the logo on the housing rubs off and can, therefore, look dirty and patina
  • Cost is quite high, but considering the quality and performance, you get what you pay for!
  • Mech mods are considered dangerous due to no safety regulations, use only if you know what you’re doing!
Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Devices.

To Conclude

The VGOD Elite Mech Mod is the second in the Series of VGOD mods. It has a unique shape, a tight grip, and the quality of this mech mod cannot be faulted. The design, weight, and feel is just awesome and is one of the best e cigs in the mechanical mods category. For Vapers, the VGOD Elite Series Mech Mod is definitely a must buy if you’re looking for both quality and performance.

Aspire Cleito EXO Tank ReviewCleito EXO Sub-Ohm Tanks is a beast manufactured by Aspire. Aspire Cleito EXO is made of durable material and high quality, just like the Cleito Tank. The body, as well as interior components is made of stainless steel. The drip tip is made of Delrin which blocks heat away from the user’s mouth. The storage containers use a high-quality glass and the package contains a reserve tank in case the original tank is broken. Although it is a little more expensive, it was a deliberate decision by Aspire, since glass provides some advantages that help a spicy flavorful hit. Because of the acid contained in the E-juice, plastic tanks erode slowly over time. This deterioration will change the taste of the liquid. The glass container Aspire Cleito EXO Tank, on the other hand, is completely insensitive to the acidic environment, thus providing a much cleaner taste while ensuring that the device remains visually flawless.

First Impression

Unlike most tanks that require a separate battery, detach the base, add e-liquid, reassemble then all the components back up more liquid is needed, the Aspire Cleito EXO can be easily filled from the top. Simply unscrew the lid, expose the juice ports and screw after the container has been filled. This eliminates the need to separate the battery from the container while eliminating the clutter is often associated with refills. The tank has a system which splits air circulation and improves air evenly spaced at the top of the tank and not from the bottom. The air is then directed to the coil before released to your mouth. This configuration improves the robustness of the taste and brings life to the several layers of taste on your e-liquid. Furthermore, through the air inlet at the top of the tank, Cleito EXO positioning has allowed Aspire to shape the basin like cup formation which eliminates the risk of leakage, as often happens with other similar tanks.

Focus On www.urvapin.com For Best Vape Tanks.

Power/Performance

Aspire really seems to fit as a new 0.16 ohms atomizer coil with the tank. However, Aspire also have elaborately designed Cleito EXO to be compatible with existing coil atomizer and offers so many options to choose from. It is also a great feature for those who have the original Cleito and already have coil atomizers. Cleaning and maintenance of your Aspire Cleito EXO is an absolute breeze with completely disassemble-ability. Each and every component can be separated from the others, giving you unrestricted access to the smallest corners parts. As such, you can ensure that your Aspire Cleito EXO Tank always performs optimally and is maintained hygienically during the warranty period. In addition, the possibility of removal allows the drip tip including Delrin replacement with nearly any nozzle, which gives you the ability to customize the look of your Cleito EXO to suit your needs and preferences.

The Full In Depth iJoy Captain PD270 Mod Review

The iJoy Captain Box Mod in blackWhat do you get when you combine a sleek and luxurious-looking mod body with state-of-the-art 20700 batteries, the latest in high-tech features, and a reliable company name with a proven track record of vaping product success? The answer’s obvious: the IJOY Captain PD270 Box Mod, of course. This latest offering from one of vaping’s most trusted names aims to be the next big thing in vaping enjoyment and aims to top the list of all the best box mods out there. In this IJOY Captain PD270 Box Mod review, we’ll delve into its finer points and see whether it actually has a real chance of meeting that goal.

 

Focus On www.ave40.com For More Vape Devices.

The Aesthetics

So, what’s so special about this mod, anyway? Well, let’s begin with the exterior. In comparing this device’s appearance to a lot of other box mods out on the market today, one thing really stands out: this thing’s exterior is just gorgeous. It has sleek, rounded edges, and elegant accents that help to ensure that you’ll forget all about its box-like shape once you get used to having it around. The display screen is large, with bright white display information to help you monitor settings and performance. Even the firing button gets in one that act, with a well-designed button that offers that high-tech look that’s so popular these days.
The 20700 Battery Area

Under The Bonnet

Of course, aesthetics can only take you so far; it’s what’s under the hood that really matters. In this case, those internal goodies include a mod that can use dual 20700 batteries – which some believe might be the vaping battery of the future.

It’s an oversized battery that offers 3000 mAh and sustained 40 A. In other words, they’re powerhouse energy sources that should provide vapers with all the power they need to meet their vaping demands. IJoy apparently understands that some people are resistant to change, however, since the company includes an adapter that can enable you to continue to use those old 18650 batteries if you so choose.

As nice as the battery options are, the mod’s chip is really something to crow about. It’s the new IWEPAL chip, and it can be controlled and managed using the OLED display and buttons. From that OLED, you can monitor or alter important settings like TC, TCR. and Power modes, wattage, resistance, and amps. You can also monitor battery life and keep track of your draw count. In short, you can use that display to maximize the chip’s regulation of just about every important aspect of your mod’s behavior.

Performance

This is a moderately-sized mod as well – which actually surprised us since we expected that the larger batteries would require a larger chassis to house them. Everything’s designed for maximum compactness, however, making this a decidedly portable device that you should feel comfortable using just about anywhere.

Performance is really where mods really separate themselves from their competitors, however – so we were only too eager to leap in headfirst to try this new tech wonder. We found that its 30mm compatibility features made it a perfect fit for a variety of different tanks, so we had a blast experimenting with some of our favorites. And, of course, we ran the thing through its paces, testing the different TC features to see which settings produced the best results for everyone in our test group.

You do have to remember that this type of mod is designed for people who have already tried vaping and want more vape flavor, bigger clouds, and an overall better performance. If your new to vaping then the Halo G6 might be a better option or one of the best cigalikes, this mod maybe a little too powerful for you to start with!

Overall

Overall, the consensus seems to be that this is a solid, reliable mod that provided all the sustained power we needed to blow big clouds of vapor while maximizing the taste results we enjoyed from each vaping session. In our tests, we also discovered that the sustained 40 A claim is real. Like I said, this device is very reliable and seems to be everything that we’d heard it would be.

Before we give you our recommendation, though, there’s another area of aesthetics that we should discuss. If you’re someone who has troubles picking out which shirts to wear, then you might want to have a friend help you select your mod. Why? Well, IJoy is offering this mod in no less than 54 separate combinations of color options. Some might find that to be overkill in the choice department, but there’s something comforting about knowing that a company cares that much about meeting your specific needs.

So, what’s the verdict? Well, the Captain is truly a little powerhouse mod that lives up to expectations. The batteries are powerful and the mod’s onboard tech ensures that every feature is precisely regulated for maximum effect. Given that the device sells for less than $100 online, we expect it to be a popular choice for vapers everywhere – and for good reason as it is one of the best e cigs in its class. If you’re looking for a new mod, the IJOY Captain PD270 Box Mod is certainly one option that you can’t afford to ignore.

 

 

Wand Kit by IJOY – no dances with a tambourine – just click the button. Or put a drip and come up with something

IJOY has again switched on its pipeline and can not be stopped. Over the past couple of months, we’ve seen several new offers in a variety of different types of wiping. This time I want to talk with you about the format, which many manufacturers have already begun to forget. IJOYdecided that it was too early to abandon such devices and released their Wand Kit . Let’s see what was prepared this time, and who it might even surprise. 
Wand Kit by IJOY -
As it is easy to guess, consists of a set of a battery and a tank. We are already familiar with the latter – Diamond Tank , the representative of the new generation of non- services IJOY. I think everyone has already managed to draw conclusions about the appearance of the tank, since it was already introduced a long time ago. But we have a new battery, but it certainly does not say that there is anything interesting in it. I have repeatedly said that in this form it is difficult to make an unusual device.

Contrary to all the efforts of designers, it always turns out roughly the same thing – a battery with one button. Wand from the crowd does not stand out. Everything, for what the attention can be fixed – an inscription on the case and the button with the indicator. A little correction of the situation the presence of a bunch of color options. Especially I liked the Resin version. I think she will become the sales leader. Against the background of other options looks very nice 🙂

Specifications : 

Relatively recentlyIJOY released a set of Saber . It would seem, why release two devices in a single form in a row. Here it is necessary to immediately decide that this time the engineers made an ordinary battery, and not a pipe modem with a full board. So, if you need the possibility of at least a minimum adjustment, then you definitely are not here. I would say that we have another variation on iJust . The battery has a capacity of 2600 mah and is charged from a micro usb.

8.8TOTAL SCORE
Wismec Reuleaux RXmini Bottom LineThe Wismec Reuleaux RXmini mod is the compact version of Wismec’s famous Reuleaux series – DNA200 and RX200S. The RXmini is a well-made compact device powered by built-in 2100mAh and able to power up to 80W. Although, there are couple of small issues it can be easily overlooked given the performance and overall build quality of the device.

Wismec Reuleaux RXmini Review:

Wismec has released yet another clean mod this year. This time they’ve come up with a compact version of the famous Reuleaux DNA200 and RX200S. While this mini mod is not as powerful as its big brothers, the Wismec Reuleaux RXmini still has some serious features onto it that you’re gonna love. Let’s take a closer look.

Wismec Reuleaux RXmini Review

Design

At first glance, the RXmini looks like the DNA200 but a little bit smaller thou. It has only a dimension size of 58mm in height by 35.5mm in wide by 44.5mm thicker. It shares the same ergonomic design from the DNA200. But the adjustment buttons are located at the bottom of the unit which makes it hard to adjust. To make it worse, the buttons are tiny and stiff. So, if you have huge fingers, you’ll need to use your fingernails to adjust the settings.

On the contrary, the fire button is huge and located just above the large OLED screen on the front of the device with the Jaybo logo on it, you won’t have any issue firing this mini mod for it features the same chipset found on the DNA200.

Below the OLED screen is a micro USB port for charging and upgrading firmware. Charging the Reuleaux RXmini is simple, just connect the device to a computer or a wall adapter via USB cable and you’re done. At the bottom, you can find its reset button. What it does is if you get stuck while upgrading or you encounter a glitch in the chipset after a firmware update, just press the right adjustment button and then insert into the reset hole with a needle to restart.

RXmini Label

As I mentioned above, the RXmini has a large OLED display similar to the DNA200 and RX 2/3. It is bright and simple to read, you’ll have the access to all the important information you’ll need such as the battery level, voltage, amps, power/temperature, and resistance.

The RXmini has a spring loaded 510 pin but it is not as perfect as its big brother does, it is still compatible with ANY atomizer especially 22mm tanks. But because the mod being too compact you will get a little overhang from 24mm and above atomizers.

The RXmini has a built-in 2100mAh Li-Ion battery. You can get a full day out of it vaping at 20 to 30 Watts. But if you vape the full 80 Watts, you’ll need to charge it a few times in a full day.

Functionality

Wismec Reuleaux RXmini

Able to power up to 80 watts, the device also has temperature control with a range from 200°F – 600°F (100°C – 315°C) with support for Nickel, Titanium, and Stainless Steel coils. The range of resistances allowed by the RXmini mod depends on the mode it is being used. In VW mode, you get a resistance range of 0.1ohm to 3.5ohms, while in TC mode, you get 0.05ohms to 1.5ohms. Aside from the two modes, you can also use bypass mode, which essentially makes the unit a mech mod. Although this mode is only applicable to experienced vapers for safety purposes, I highly recommend that you stick to variable wattage or temp control mode. You can also try to check out my other reviewed vape mods or my top picks for this year to give you a heads up for best vape mods on the block.

Overall Performance

All in all, the RXmini is a well-made device. There are couple of small issues thou, but it can be easily overlooked given the functionality and overall build quality of the RXmini mod.

 

Wismec Reuleaux RXmini Review

WISMEC Sinuous Ravage230 Mod Kit Review

Last year, the Wismec Predator  launched to a lot of fanfare. Not only because it launched a ton of “Alien vs. Predator” jokes across vape forums, but also because it was a damn good mod. Fast forward a year, and the prolific company might have just made its best dual-18650 device to date, the Wismec Ravage230 mod.

  • wismec_sinuous_ravage230_200w_tc_starter_kit_red_1

Though it doesn’t seem all that different than the Predator, or the internal-battery Sinuous mod, the 230-watt Ravage230 is easily the best, most-compact mid-sized device I’ve used in quite some time. Although the pre-release sample boxes that arrived a few weeks ago sported just 200W, WISMEC released a firmware upgrade that pushed the maximum output to 230W.

Let’s dive a little deeper and see what makes the Ravage230 so much better than the Predator.

  • wismec_sinuous_ravage230_200w_tc_starter_kit_oled_screen

For the Ravage230, Wismec took the best elements of all its devices, smoothed them over, then added an absolutely stunning 1.4-inch display, just to add icing to the cake. More streamlined than the Predator, more compact than the Sinuous, and featuring more than a few design cues from the Reuleaux Mods, the Ravage230 is a sharp little device.

But make no mistake, the Ravage230 is its own beast, with a nicely anodized aluminum frame, distinctive color contrasts, and a well laid-out control scheme. The side firing bar returns, and has a nice throw to it – not quite as satisfying and clicky as the recent SMOK Majesty Mods, but still highly responsive.

I didn’t love the “rocker-style” single up/down control button, because I always seem to have problems with them. But the Ravage230’s button was solid and responsive, as well.

One fantastic addition to the Ravage230 is the top-positioned “back” button, which not only serves to back users out of a menu tree, but also to quickly turn off the screen and turn off the button inputs. Though we only usually see these types of “lock” controls on touchscreen Mods, I was happy to see how Wismec implemented the same idea on the Ravage230, and hope other companies follow suit.

The center-mounted 510 connection is built into the aluminum top section of the Ravage230 frame, so there’s little worry of loose plates or misfires. In my time with the Ravage230, we experienced no issues with bad connectivity, even with older tanks and RDAs. Speaking of which, the Ravage230 is 30mm wide, which means nearly all your tanks and RDAs will sit flush. I noticed a LITTLE overhang with the Modfather tank, but it was largely negligible.

If there were any concerns with the Wismec Ravage230230 Mod, it came from the bottom battery door, which was a little loose on our test Model. I received two different Ravage230s for review, and the second had a much more secure hinge, so I’m willing to chalk the first up to a production error.

  • wismec_sinuous_ravage230_200w_tc_starter_kit_front_screen_and_button

Overall, the Ravage230 operates like a dream, with an intuitive, all-new menu system that allows users to easily navigate between all Modes and settings, with options clearly laid out on the vibrant display. Entering the menus requires a standard “three-click” input, then the onscreen prompts take it from there.

As I mentioned earlier, the inclusion of a back button makes the Ravage230 operate very closely to a touchscreen Mod, without having to get fingerprints all over the display. It is different than most common vape device systems, but it became second nature in no time.

Under the hood, the Ravage230 offers 230 watts of power – apparently those last two watts were just too elusive for the Predator to handle last year. Additionally, users will enjoy a full complement of temperature control options for all types of coils, TCR memory slots, and the odd RTC (real time clock) Mode, which simply puts the time on the main screen, rather than the current wattage/temperature. I don’t QUITE understand why RTC is a “feature,” but it’s there if you want it.

Thanks to the simple menus, making TC adjustments is an absolute pleasure, including the setting of wattage, locking resistances, making quick temperature tweaks, and even adjusting the order in which info is displayed onscreen. Again, highly intuitive and user-friendly all around.

  • wismec_gnome_evo_sub-ohm_tank_top_view

Included with the Wismec Ravage230 Mod kit is the all-new Gnome EVO tank. At first glance, this diminutive 2mL/4mL sub-ohm tank seems identical to its predecessor, but Wismec added one key function – a child lock system that should really be called an “adult-proof system” instead.

You see, the original Gnome was a strong, flavorful performer with two major drawbacks. The first was capacity, which we wish was larger. The second was the top cap, which was a little too easy to open, meaning more than a few milliliters of e-liquid leaked when users weren’t looking.

The Gnome EVO fixes this by requiring users to remove the drip tip in order to slide open the fill cap. It’s a BIT of a nuisance, but once you realize how dry and clean your pockets are, you’ll appreciate it.

Beyond this design alteration, this is the same Gnome we’ve come to love countless times over – the squat, compact design of the tank means rich, deep flavor and massive cloud production. Wismec claims the EVO coils are new and improved, but I’m not seeing any difference in vape quality so far. I still wish there was a taller 5-6mL version of the Gnome, but no one can argue with performance this strong.

The Ravage230 Slideshow

Vaping the Wismec Ravage230 Mod

Consistency and power is the name of the game with the Ravage230. For a Mod so compact and pocket-friendly, I was shocked at how effortlessly it hit its marks, both in power and TC Modes. First off, the 230-watt proclamation is no lie – not only does the Ravage230 hit this mark with ease, but it does it with noticeably less power consumption than any Mod I’ve seen in this category.

Now, before you start cranking it up to 230 all day, realize I’m speaking in relative terms. Vaping at that level consistently WILL drain your batteries like a sieve. But it should be noted that battery efficiency is fantastic on the Ravage230, from 5 watts to 230, and vapers who stay below 100 watts will enjoy extensive performance throughout a given day.

(I only wonder what the Ravage230 could put out with 21700 cell capability. Oh well, there’s always next year…)

In temperature control, I enjoyed predictable, powerful performance with all my varied test coils. There was a predictable amount of jumpiness before locking my resistance levels, but once dialed in, the temp control performance was flawless.

[Ed note: As it was pointed out to me by a recent reader comment, most Mods have jumpy resistance readings in TC Mode, until it’s locked in. While I actually knew this, I never properly conveyed my point in my reviews. In that instance, I found the ohm readings to be excessively skittish and inconsistent, which made me hesitant to vape in that Mode. All the same, I thank that reader for pointing out my communication error, and assure you I won’t make the same mistakes in future reviews.]

TCR settings came in very handy for my more complicated builds, and setting these parameters was effortless when using the onscreen prompts. However, I should note the built-in protection suite is extremely helpful, if not a little too cautious, since it started to throw low atomizer warnings at 0.1 ohm, when 0.05 was the limit for TC Modes. Since I don’t usually vape this low, I like the protection. But vapers who like to push their coils and Mods a little harder might find these protections annoying.

What is the key difference of Smok Infinix Starter to other Kits?

  • Smok Fit Starter Kit vs Smok Infinix – They have very similar features and performance, the only difference would be the overall design, The Smok Fit has a boxy type design while the Smok Infinix has an angled shape.
  • Juul E-Cig vs Smok Infinix Starter Kit – Both of these vaping device are great as a Pod Systems, Smok Infinix will have a little advantage as it has more advanced key features like the internal safety protections, and also you can choose from different E-Liquid flavors from other brands that Juul’s E-Cig doesn’t have that option.
