Reviewer comments on business characteristics
The Presa is a mini box at the antipodes of Wismec productions. No more triple charges and astronomical powers. No, here we are in finesse for the smallest electronic box of the brand.
But mini-box does not mean downgraded features, far from the same.
The Presa is equipped with the same chipset as its cousin the Evic Vtc mini and therefore, we are entitled to the same benefits.
Full temperature control (Ni200, SS316 and Ti as well as the TCR setting), power 75W and wide oled screen with multiple information.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
Mini, did you say mini? Well, Wismec took us at his word. The Presa is only slightly longer than a 30w Istick but offers much more than the latter.
A full aluminum chassis, a battery location reduces to its simplest expression.
The switch is an integral part of the front, it is devilishly effective. A first approach is very convincing.

Reviewer's comments on functional features
As said before, the Presa has the same electronics as the Evic Vtc mini, so we are entitled to the same functions. Complete and parameterizable temperature control via the TCR parameter to make it compatible over time with different resistive types, a controlled power and a flat signal for a smooth vape and even a "mechanic" function. She has everything from a big one.
The little extra: the chipset is upgradable allowing the firmware update.
Only the locking system leaves me skeptical, a simple plastic latch that, personally, makes me doubt its reliability over time.

Packing the most complete, your Presa will be delivered in a very large cardboard box (compared to the box itself) containing a manual "in English" and a USB cable for charging but also for the update of the firmware.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
The Presa is relatively simple to use, just three clicks on the switch to enter the menus and choose your vape mode via buttons [+] and [-]. We choose his favorite atomizer of the moment, it is screwed and your box is ready to fire.
Small and practical. The dream for the nomadic vape!

The mood ticket of the reviewer
With his collaboration with Joyetech, Wismec has quickly become a key player in the vaporous landscape in recent months.
After a great outing of his famous Reuleaux and his Noisy Criket, it was time for them to release a small electronic box accessible to the greatest number.
That's good, there was in the catalog a small box format adapted but powered by a somewhat asthmatic electronics: the Presa 40W.
No problem, we redesign the front and we stick the excellent chipset 75W of his cousin Evic VTC Mini.
And so the Presa 75W TC was born. A success of practicality and aesthetics!
Thanks to Xavier from My free-cig for the loan of this mini box.
