Reviewer comments on business characteristics
Last generation box at Aspire, the Pegasus offers maximum power of 70W with the now unavoidable temperature control (reserved for nickel and titanium resistors). The quality of the products of this manufacturer are found in this material for a price content. It's happy because there are no surprises or special innovations with the Pegasus, at most its ergonomics.
It includes an 18650 battery (not supplied) which you will ensure compatibility: flat top, 20A minimum.
Let's see this in detail.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
As soon as you get hold of it, you feel its weight (170g to which you will add 50g of battery and the atomizer), the rounded shape of the battery housing is positioned naturally in the palm, this box is studied for a manipulation to the index (firing and adjustments), but the reverse grip is possible too, although less pleasant.
Opening the cover to insert the battery is done with a finger, press and pulling it to the outside, it opens and remains adjacent to the box. This removable part has 6 venting vents.
No screws or magnets, no possibility of losing part of the set, this closure option is part of the ergonomic originality of this box.
The functional side of the OLED screen, protected behind a Pegasus body length PMMA plate, contains only the "firing" switch. The width of this side is 18mm.
Adjustments are made by means of a metal wheel which protrudes slightly on both sides of the thin part, on the front of the body, on the screen side, near the top cap. Its diameter is 21,5mm.
Here is the other functional feature, this notched wheel replaces the traditional buttons, it has the advantage of being insensitive to involuntary pressures, its circular stroke is relatively hard, which makes this system a reliable and almost foolproof then same as you will not lock your settings.
The stainless steel top cap is equipped with a floating pin for the flush mounting of most atomizers (the Magma scarcely reaches the 1,2mm). Its diameter is 23,3mm. It allows the air intake from below.
The Pegasus test is a "brushed chrome" version quite sensitive to fingerprints and fragile to scratches.

Reviewer's comments on functional features
In operation, at the very beginning, as soon as the battery is inserted with a stainless steel ato, the box offers 18w of power, after the 5 start-up clicks. This is a native setting, you need to "switch" 3 seconds to access the VW mode, automatic recognition of the resistance value is made from the ato mounted.
From then on you are able to choose the power you want to vaper in increments of 1W, from 1 to 70W.
With a Ni 200 mount you can switch to TC mode by switching 3 seconds (if your battery is a little weak it can take twice as long).
The power delivered then will be of 30W during the detection of the new ato, having changed mode of adjustment. This first "pulse" is not configurable, but essential for the system to calculate and parameterize the functions according to the existing configuration. From now on, you can set your heating temperature, in increments of 10 ° F, from 200 to 600 ° F.
In VW mode the minimum resistance is 0,2 ohm
In TC mode the minimum resistance is 0,1 ohm
Note that you can vaper 12 s before cutoff (Over 12S).
The Pegasus is expressed in ° F (Fahrenheit) you have to calculate yourself the concordance with the ° Celsius, the conversion is your responsibility, to help you go see you here.
The safeties common to all the current regulated mods are present, the minimum charge of the battery will generate a warning message: Low Battery to 3,3V. It will be time to recharge it via the USB cable provided (output 5V) and you can continue to vape during this time (if the battery can not accept the power requested by lack of fishing, the box will manage it in declining increments of 10W until "wattage" tolerated).
Other alert messages: Low Resistor : resistance too low or short circuit, Too Hot : internal overheat protection, allow the unit to cool down. Check Atomizer appears when the edit is missing or exceeds 5 ohms.
That's about all we need to learn about the functionalities of Pegasus, which are efficient. Given its apparent robustness, this material is quite suitable for a vape nomad, rather masculine, with reference to its weight and proportions.

Vapelier's note on packaging: 4 / 5
Reviewer's comments on conditioning
The box is perfectly protected in its thermo-shaped shell inside a black cardboard box discreetly marked with the brand name and a PEGASUS decorated with the mythological horse. On the back of the container you will find the serial number and a code of authenticity to scratch and confront a comparator on the manufacturer's website.
Under the box, a box contains the cable used for reloading and a manual in English, nevertheless relatively decipherable with the linguistic tools available on the web.
For the price generally requested, this packaging is satisfactory.

Vapelier's note in terms of usability: 4.5 / 5
Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
A robust, functional and reliable material, ideal in all situations except scuba diving. The Pegasus will be more suitable for men with larger paws, but free to you ladies to adopt if you like, its ergonomics is nice.
At the vape, it behaves very well, without latency, its functions are cut off after a minute of inactivity, which may seem long to promote the autonomy of the battery. On the other hand, it is not noticeably energy efficient in operation, it is to emphasize because rather appreciable in situation of displacement.
The battery change is easy and the hood is closed with one hand.
Its very large range of 0,1 resistance values accepted at 5 ohms make it a tool suitable for all vape habits, for all 510 atos on the market.
It is not revolutionary but well studied to last, still a positive point non negligible.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
The brand already famous for these atomizers has concocted a box TC 70W successful. Without being exceptional, it brings together all the security functions and settings common to other products of the big names in the sector and incorporates the ergonomic originality that makes it stand out.
The pecuniary component is also put forward to suit the greatest number of us. If, as I think, this Pegasus supports the harsh reality of time passing without problems, it will be present on the market a few more years (it is guaranteed 6 months).
Let us know your suggestions to decorate this modest review of details that would have escaped me, or simply to give your opinion, a community of vapors follows diligently the news proposed here, and the expression of your experience can only bring information relevant to all.
I will answer with pleasure,
