Reviewer comments on business characteristics


A box all wood Kamakong (or iron wood), a very resistant wood species for this artisanal mod.
A variable voltage box powered by two 18650 batteries, created by Ante Meridiem, a Filipino moderator. Who says Filipino says Power Vaping! With more than 70 watts and a resistance limit at 0,2Ω, it is clear that the weather will become cloudy!

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality


A "doorway": that's what some people think of this box.
Indeed, it has a fairly simple design: a rectangular parallelepiped whose one face is worked in the manner of a revolver stock with slots for the fingers. A metal fire button of excellent quality, a plastic wheel to operate the drive and an LCD screen that seems out of the past. The artisanal side is obvious and will please all those looking for authenticity, far from the industrial series products. It is large and a little bulky but its lightness counterbalance advantageously this defect. It's clean and a little vintage.

Reviewer's comments on functional features


This box is very simple. A Texas Instrument chipset® not specifically made for the vape, but offers a super smooth and dense rendering. We adjust using the screen since the wheel has no indication and we shoote and that's it .... but it works perfectly. All the security elements are there. So this rustic looking box has the essentials and leaves no room for the superfluous.

  • Would you say that the packaging is up to the price of the product? We make fun of us!

  • Does the manual explain ALL features? No

Reviewer's comments on conditioning

Nothing to say about conditioning, it does not exist. Indeed our Filipino Filipino friends are once again showing their total disinterest in the presentation. So I'm fine ... but still!!! This moder seems to work very well wood so could provide a succinct box in this area. A notice that could for example explain that 2 must be strictly identical or a little scribble on the great essence of wood used would not be too much .... I do not know but make an effort! More 200 € and bubble wrap, it hurts or I think.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product

So as I said, it's very simple. Like everything that is rustic, you will not get lost in multiple settings since there is only one: the variator. There, it plays with the feeling given the absence of graduations, which is a shame. Well, you can still find yourself with the screen that tells you the output voltage, even when there is no atomizer. Otherwise, the battery compartment cover with its magnet system is super nice! It's super accessible and it fits perfectly.

The mood ticket of the reviewer

A doorway, that's what came out of the first contact with this box.
So yes, it is very basic or even primary at first sight. But the beast hides his game well. The vape you get from this box is just awesome! It's powerful, direct and smooth, a real sea of ​​oil.
The workmanship is impeccable, the wood used noble and resistant. Each model made by hand is unique so those who aim for originality will be delighted, I bet.
The painting would be almost idyllic but several clouds darken the scene.
An adjustable 510 connection using a screwdriver, which proves tedious at the time or spring connectors are gradually becoming the norm.
A wheel in plastic without graduation? Help, we are faced with a craft model using noble materials, since when plastic has it entered this category?
Non-existent packaging for a luxury category mod? No but hello, what…. there are knife blows that are lost. 😆
So, if your means allow you and that the authentic craftsmanship (even in the errors of conception) is for you a source of ineluctable motivation, this box is then yours.

Good luck, see you soon and see you soon!
