Reviewer comments on business characteristics
The Presa is an electronic box that has all the assets to seduce.
Small, light and ergonomic, it offers a maximum power of 75 Watts. The temperature control can be used with nickel, titanium or stainless steel wire. To complete the panoply of the beautiful, it also incorporates the ByPass mode that allows you to use it as a mechanical box by inhibiting the chipset.
The ergonomics are perfect with a side switch completely integrated into the body of the mod, on which are inserted the screen, the two adjustment buttons and the location for the USB port.
The battery can be inserted without using a screwdriver since the cover is magnetic. The supplied USB port is used to recharge the battery or update the chipset. The pin is spring loaded, the switch is lockable and, finally, the screen is wide with a visualization of information that is ideally distributed.
A beauty that is offered in two colors, black or silver.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
The Presa is beautiful and has a very ergonomic shape. The OLED screen is integrated into the concave shape switch with two adjustment knobs and USB port location
The material chosen for the body is aluminum, which makes it very light. The paint for the coating does not "pick up" the fingerprints. The design is refined, elegant and original.
The location for the atomizer is dug and allows to mount 22mm diameter atomizers without them mark your box by screwing them on.
The adjustment knobs are integrated in the switch and do not come out, being included in a cavity, which gives the Presa a perfect silhouette. The buttons do not move, do not rattle and are very responsive, as the side switch is perfectly stable and reacts to the pressure along its length.
The pin is spring-loaded and adapts very well to all atomizers to have a completely flush set-up.
Under the mod, there are three holes, cyclope type, which allow to circulate the air and only one on the hood that encloses the accumulator. This hood is held by four small magnets that are well suited.
The inscriptions on the OLED screen are clearly visible and it is not energy efficient despite its comfortable size.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
The use is relatively simple and the record is not very long, as you translate it:
– Power on / off : Switch on / off: Press the Switch five times
– Stealth function: Screen Saver function. When the unit is turned on, hold down the switch and the left setting knob at the same time. So your screen stays off during use.
– Key lock function : Key lock function. While the unit is on, simultaneously press both setting buttons. So you do not risk changing the preset values accidentally. To unlock, simply repeat the same operation.
– Safety lock switch : Security lock switch. Move the unlock switch to the right and to the left to lock the switch. Thus you do not risk to press the switch accidentally.
– Switch the display mode : Change the display mode. It is possible to rotate the display of the screen when the Presa is off. By pressing the left and right adjustment buttons simultaneously, the display rotates by 180 °.
– Shift between VW / Bypass / TC-Ni / TC-Ti Mode : Settings between VW / Bypass / TC-Ti mode TC-Ni mode. Press the 3 firing button once, the first line will flash to indicate that you are entering the menu. Press the right setting button to toggle between VW, By-pass, TC-Ni and TC-Ti mode
VW mode : The power mode can be set from 1W to 75W by pressing the right setting button to increase and to the left to decrease.
Bypass mode: the bypass mode is a direct output of the voltage. In this mode, the chipset is inhibited and your box works without electronics in the manner of a mechanical mod.
TC-Ni and TC-Ti mode : TC-Ni and TC-Ti mode: In TC mode, the temperature can be set from 100 ° C-315 ° C (or 200 ° F-600 ° F) with the setting buttons, the right to increase and the left to decrease.
1- power setting: press the switch 3 once to enter the menu. Press the left setting button and the second row will flash. Then press the right setting button to adjust the power and then press the switch to confirm.
2- Atomizer resistance display: This line indicates the reference resistance when the device is in standby and the real-time resistance when it is pressed.
3- lock / unlock the resistance of the atomizer: press the 3 switch once and enter the menu. Press the left adjustment button to lock or unlock the atomizer resistance.
Remark : lock the resistance only when the resistance is at room temperature (it has not heated up).
Display of the battery charge OR the puff counter:
Press the 3 switch once to enter the menu. Press the 3 setting button to the left and the fourth line to flash. Now, press the right setting button to toggle between the remaining charge and the actual number of puffs. To reset the puff counter, keep pressing the switch while the display is still flashing.
This is essentially the use on the record.
You can also update your chipset on the Wismec site at the following address: Wismec
The blocking of the resistance is only done when the resistance is at an ambient temperature. This function is very useful because, when using the temperature control, it has a variable value (and it is normal) however, by heating it tends to reset to approximate values. The blocking allows to have a permanent resistive value just.
What the manual does not tell us is that the temperature control can be used also with resistive wire made of stainless steel (Stainless Steel) and whose use is identical to that of resistive nickel or titanium. Your box will indicate the letter "S" on the first line of the screen.
The display of the battery charge and the puff meter is common. You can view one or the other according to your choice made during the setting.
The use is very simple, power is at the rendezvous and the box is not really energy-intensive. Whether on low or high power, the Presa is responsive and the values are right. During my tests, I climbed up to 64W on a double-coil of 0.22Ω, the accumulator never heated. Temperature control on nickel and stainless steel (I have not tested Titanium), behaves very well.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
With the Reuleaux with its DNA 200 and the Reuleaux RX200, Wismec offers the new Presa is no longer 40W, but comes equipped with a chipset that reaches the 75 Watts with a single battery, in a small size.
Its original shape is ergonomic with a concave side switch, incorporating screen, adjustment buttons and USB port and is triggerable over the entire length.
Beautiful, powerful, economical ... she has everything! Working perfectly in power mode, temperature control with nickel, titanium or stainless steel, it even gives you the possibility to vape like a mechanical mode with the Bypass.
Its switch can also be locked mechanically, difficult to find a single fault.
Wismec was really strong on this one!
