Reviewer comments on business characteristics
A small 14650 electro mod (or 14500 but in my case 14650) that can under certain conditions reach the 16 watts smooth vape. The latter has indeed a chipset of the same family as the extreme dani or pro pipeline. A high-end German mod guaranteed 2 years, which partly explains its price so high.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
Nothing to say the quality is really at the top on this product. We are really faced with the archetype of German quality, as we fantasize all ... here everything is perfectly assembled.
However, beware of a problem of design and not quality ... the screw of the bottom cap is very thin, a little too much in case of falling on hard ground, it will have little chance to recover ... I'm I have experienced that it cost me 20 € repairs in the shop where I bought it, but I also made contact with the co-founder of the brand who sent me a free and here I say hat down and thank you dicodes!
Otherwise the switch is a reliable foolproof ever "miss fire" and if my memories are good it is guaranteed for a million clicks. In short, it's a German!

Vapelier's note regarding functional characteristics: 5 / 5
Reviewer's comments on functional features
Just perfect. This mode has a proprietary chipset, whose firmware is almost the same as a pipeline with fewer functions.
Nevertheless it has a range of impressive settings and measurements, with an extended menu that offers for example to adjust the number of clicks for the start, the minimum voltage at which it is cut .... It's even a little complicated to manage with one button all that!
But rest assured, once settled you do not touch anything and we only manage the power. Security side, all the protections are there except the one managing the hit protection ...
Clearly this little mod is all of a big.

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
A metal box marked the name of the mod is simple but we saw worse.
By cons what disappointment that our German friends do not provide us with a manual, the mod is complex and you have to deal with a record download on the site of dicodes ... in English.
Please gentlemen from home dicodes take example of your fellow Chinese kangertech and do us the honor to provide us with a manual in French in the box.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
For the little story Telegonos is the son born from the union of Ulysses with Circe. The latter fatally wounded his father without knowing it and Ulysses, before dying, asked him to replace him with Penelope by becoming king of ithaca. Why this mythological reference? Maybe to make us understand that size does not always matter ... against larger competitors ...
This mod is the worthy little brother of the dani or the pipeline. It is of very good quality and has more function than it takes. The signal is smooth in alternating current so it takes again the most important characteristic of the family. Compact but rather heavy it will be an ideal companion for those who want to remain discreet without putting aside the quality of vape. Of a sober and elegant design one will be able to oppose to its classicism a lack of originality. Accepting resistance from 0,70 ohm, it will give its maximum with resistance to 1,5 ohm.
Can reach the 16 watts it goes perfectly with a taifun gs, with an 510 connection but it will require an adapter for ego type atomizers.
Discreet, elegant, powerful (for 14500 or 14650) it is certainly expensive, it really all of a great same price! Its warranty is 2 years.
In conclusion if your budget allows you and you are looking for a compact mod, powerful and very good bill, the Telegonos is for you!
