Reviewer comments on business characteristics
Another electronic mod, variable power?
Yes but not that ... as we will see the Bec Pro hides his game, since it also allows to switch to mechanical mode, and above all ... it connects to your mobile phone, turning the latter into a real console.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
The single interface button is multi-directional.
Only minor flaw, to ensure maximum responsiveness on the movements it must support, Smoktech left a little game between the enclave of the button and the latter. So, if you wave the mod to make him test the "rattle", it happens that we hear a little noise, which personally annoys me to the highest point.
For the rest it is flawless, the user interface is clear, the screen is beautiful and wide, the thread of the bottom cap that allows to set up the battery of good quality (no squeaks when it is tightened) .
In hand this product gives an impression of obvious solidity.

Reviewer's comments on functional features
He does everything easily.
Of course everything is provided to be able to use all the settings directly from the mod, but it becomes so much easier from his mobile phone once the Bluetooth function is activated. This done, it is necessary to take a tour on the Apps of your mobile phone to download the free application "Smart Bec".
From then on, the geek who sleeps in any vapoteur wakes up and it must be said ... it's the foot!
In a few touches of my screen I access everything, I see everything, I switch to mecha mode, VV mode, VW mode ... I see the charge of my battery, the time of each puff ... and so on.
Yes some features are useless and then? smile ... I love it.
One of my favorite features is definitely the switch to mechanical mode. In this configuration the chipset goes into "pass through" and we get almost the same vape as a classic mecha. Convenient to go with a single mod and several Atos, including some drippers.
Be careful though! The use of accumulators with nipples will prevent to completely close the mod (a few rounds of bottom cap near ...) ... This mod is the friend of the flat nipples ...

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
A box of good quality and no frills.
TWO top caps:
The first one dedicated to the Atos Ego and the other to the Atos 510 to ensure a perfect aestheticism whatever the Atomizer set up.
A manual (in English) that explains perfectly how to start the product and how and where to download the application.On the box finally, all certificates of authenticity.
No doubt, it's serious, it's Smoktech.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
A classic transportability I say for this type of mod ... so do not dream, if you slip in the inner pocket of your suit, you will undoubtedly be asked if you came armed.
Not that it is bulky (though ... a bit high anyway), but it is heavy with a battery (175 grams ... anyway).
The SX330 v2 chipset from YiHiEcigar never fails ... a vape smooth beautiful and pleasant whatever the ato mounted.
Never heated, no weird behavior ... beefy beef, reliable and functional.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
Yes it is a little expensive.
Yes I love him.
Yes its button makes a little noise and it brings me up to the highest point.
Yes I love being able to settle it from my cell phone ... Yes I am a geek!
Yes this mod up to 50 Watts and starting with a resistance of 0.3 ohms is a real Swiss army knife.
No, he does not have to blush in the face of products worth twice as much.
In my opinion it lacks only the charging function embedded from a USB port to become the preferred mod of your travels ... in this state it will not forget to take accumulators and charger.
Is it worth it? Yes because it is reliable ... but at 30% less it would put it in the top three mods to own.
Do I recommend this mod? YES !
Looking forward to reading you.
