Reviewer comments on business characteristics
Kamry offers us an original proofreading of the electro box. Indeed, at first sight this box looks corsair has many assets to seduce those looking for a more classy look and different boxes that flood the market by taking and using an agreed design, seen and reviewed. Animated by two 18650 batteries and up to 100 watts, this neoclassical box is placed in the high-end by its price. But Kamry has given all means to make this box a model of its kind?

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
First point, this box is big and heavy, the wood often used for its beauty, but also its lightness and strength is used here only for the look. The design of this double tube is clumsy and a bit rude. In my opinion, the biggest defect is the use of zamac, this alloy of aluminum, zinc and copper is sorely lacking class compared to a brass, like the one used for slug for example. This mix of material evokes for me the quintessence of the Chinese "cheap". We try to make illusion but I am a little impervious to this type of approach. The fire button is also perfectible: it is not perfectly fixed and is noisy with use. One of the positive aspects is the power adjustment dial, it's rather nice and not taken up on the traditional boxs, a pity that the assembly at this level is a bit approximate and suggests once to more the lack of precision that some brands can show.
To finish the OLED screen could have been round a little in the spirit of the Istick mini, because the small rectangle screen which we can easily guess the drawing in the round location, gives us the feeling of a step again unfinished .
In short it is not a total horror and some will be seduced, but I am a little disappointed, especially compared to the price that seems a little high compared to the overall quality.

Vapelier's note regarding functional characteristics: 3.3 / 5
Reviewer's comments on functional features
This mod works very well. The vape is properly regulated, the switch is responsive and the screen is simple and clear (although, as I said above, it could or should have been round). All the necessary securities are there (reverse polarity, short circuit ...). Note the presence of a fixed connection (Why? Why?), Which I do not understand well, at the time when almost all boxes offer 510 connections spring, Kamry installs us a fixed pin ... On this point there, I do not say "bravo", see I say downright zero point, we still talk about a box 120 €.
Otherwise you will be able to test 100 watts with resistance between 0,5 and 0,7 ohm.
Functionality nice for my taste: a normal mode 7 40 watts which will be recommended for resistances greater than 0,7Ω and a super mode for power vaping that will expand the range of 7 100 watts usable with low resistance.

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
Regarding the packaging, we are in the good average but no more. Indeed, we are sold a product that wants to be original at the design level and it is delivered to us in an ordinary cardboard box. I say: damn, shame, a box treasure chest way, with the skull flag, finally something that throws a little and announces the universe from which the object in question would have been welcome no ?
For the rest, we have a manual in English complete but not understandable of all (hey, everyone does not speak English or the Vulcan commonly private joke towards ... you know who of the team if not ask me the question in comments!)
Anyway it's a little like the rest, the experience is not complete.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
The vape that provides this box is nice, responsive but not too brutal and smooth. On this point, the chipset is effective.
The controls are simple and easily assimilated, the wheel is a very good idea to replace the + and - buttons.
Too bad its aesthetic was not worked, a spirit wheel notched more would have been to my taste ...
The valve for the batteries is convenient even if I ask myself about the solidity of the hinge, indeed the zamac can be brittle and not resistant to shocks.
A little imposing, I do not see myself carrying it in a pocket whatsoever. The double tube of the overall shape, has two different diameters, I find it uncomfortable for small hands, but hey with the training, we will end up by finding his grip comfort especially if we are sensitive to his style.
Lovers of absolute flushitude: the pine is fixed! It says you are warned.
All this keeps me in this feeling of unfinished work. This is a box that offers interesting choices but does not fully assume.
Too bad, three times damage !!!

The mood ticket of the reviewer
Me who saw me already pacing the streets wearing my favorite jeans, my khaki denim jacket, worn naturally by the time, with its holes and its past color, sneakers on the feet ... Redevenir rebel despite my 40 spring, and there, I would have released the ultimate weapon of the rebel of modern times: my pirate box. Here I am Jack Sparrow with 40kg plus and a sparse hair, imagine the table ...
But now, the Kamry 100 is not quite the one I imagined. It gives me that impression of botched limit work. Full of good intentions, wood, a dial adjustment, a practical battery door, but each time, a shadow seems to want to darken the table.
A vape of quality, yes, but a fixed pin.
And I feel that everything for me is like that with this box. So I'm probably a little chafouin but I would have a hard time telling you who have the qualities ... or defects.
Also look closely and tell me what you think because I can not make my choice. I can not decide. Maybe I'm too difficult, or that the subject inspires me, and that suddenly I find many things that I would not have seen like that?
My trip stops there, I did not take off, the boat did not succeed to seduce me, but it has already seduced others, and do not deprive you of the experience if it you tent, because all this is only my personal opinion.
Good luck and do not forget to tell me your experiences with this Kamry 100 !!!
Looking forward to reading you.
