Reviewer's comments on functional features

A very precise mod, with a homemade chipset, formidable efficiency!
The signal (a 200 kHz) sent by the mod is alternative, the measurement of the resistance is done in a conventional manner, but also in alternative mode and taking into account the inductance of the resistive, to better adapt the setting. A consideration of the heat of resistance is made for the same purpose.

The mood ticket of the reviewer

An excellent electronic mod, very sober, well machined, with innovative ideas.
Using an alternating signal, and measuring the temperature of your resistance and thus adapt the signal is an absolutely brilliant idea.
You go with this mod, be able to vape in peace, without taking the lead with complex settings, because basic, it is enough.
For the more advanced, the Pro contains an advanced menu to go further in the settings.

An extension is available to switch its battery format to 18650 with almost nothing to change size! A feat!

We regret a package without notice and a box worthy of an entry-level manufacturer. A shame !

Note that the design of my Pipeline Pro is not original, I did laser engrave to customize
