A mod electronic mini box format that does its job but on which we should not expect performance miracles either.
A fair price but a bit expensive for the technology used.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality

Arf, I am divided as to the quality of assembly button / box ... basically the buttons move alone and are so noisy ... otherwise for the rest, there is nothing to say ah if the screen or at least the plexi covering it which is certainly not well sealed ... a shame because the rest level finish is not bad at all.
A price lower than the amount requested would be welcome for these negative points. But good to 45 euro, we will not complain either!

Reviewer's comments on functional features

If you get the iStick pack, you will have in the package a mini USB cable, a power adatateur, an adapter to vaper with your EGO type ato connection.
Surveys of power and intensity show that this box is equipped with a chipset that sends more than what is displayed on the screen ... good or bad news? Your turn to judge.
We fit no?
The only available settings are volts, and watts ... nothing else, simple sober and made to simply vape.
Although all ato of any diameter are mounted on it ... its thickness of 21 mm makes that there is an aesthetic limit not to be exceeded.
The two very large grooves allow a considerable air intake for the vape in carto! yeeeeaaaahhhhh!
Equipped with a LI-po battery with a capacity of 2200mah ... you'll have something to see!

Vapelier's note on packaging: 4 / 5 4 5 out of stars

Reviewer's comments on conditioning

A correct packaging is present, we will not say the opposite ... but the user manual or rather the "user manual" as it is written is totally in English and since the illustrations are small and not explicit ... for beginners and completely non-English it can be a problem ....
For the rest nothing to add

Two problems really encountered with this mini box ...
the first, the fire button that I play tricks if you do not press properly on ... missfire requires but nothing too bad in itself!
The second problem for me is more annoying ... it is that arrived below the half-load of the battery ... the chipset is not able to provide what it takes to send what is ask by the user ............ ..good to see the price ... we will not complain I want to say!

The mood ticket of the reviewer

To be quite honest, I like this box despite these small defects that could spoil its use.
But its really nice design, and its simplicity of operation outweighs these minor details anyway.
It provides a nice vape, his grip and touch are still excellent!
