Reviewer comments on business characteristics
With Smoktech, we are expecting strong material, their mutes are perfect examples and this mod semi-electronic is of the same vein. Available since the 2th half of the year 2014, it was then considered as a reliable material, in its category of performances. He is original de byt its aesthetic characteristics and its operation. Accompanied by a box providing its protection and a user manual, it is the last Electro cylindrical mod of the brand, which has since positioned on the box niche.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
We will not lie, this mod is downright sweeping, just the control head, from the top of the top-cap to the ring settings, measuring 68mm.
With its almost 15cm long and 25mm diameter we feel the object in hand! Question finish, it's perfect! The removable parts are well machined and the metallic decoration, pecked holes way microphone, is most original. The battery in the photo is 18650 ... ..caramba!
The chosen material, stainless steel, adds strength to these "graphic" and functional features. The setting ring V / W is notched by selected positions. The firing button is equipped with a led and a function acquisition screen type phone or PC keyboard. We are in the presence of the first dedicated lightsaber vape, that the force (to lift it) is with you!

Reviewer's comments on functional features
It supports any type of battery in 18650 (from 5 A mini) and the bottom cap is equipped with a pin mounted on spring. A degassing vent is present even though the decoration along the battery allows this function.
The top-cap (copper) pin is also spring-loaded, allowing direct flush mounting. The diameters of the tops-caps are 22 mm, 2 possible connection types 510 and EGO.
No control screen, everything is done at the switch and power or voltage adjustment is provided by a rotating ring notched 5 positions:
- 1er position: 3.6 V / 6.0 W
- 2th position: 4.0 V / 8.0 W
- 3th position: 4.4 V / 10.0 W
- 4th position: 4.8 V / 12.0 W
- 5th position: 6.0 V / 15.0 W
AMaximum output speed: 5 A. SIf the resistance value is below 1,2 ohm, the system switches off. At the installation of the battery, the mod is functional (blinking led) otherwise you have reversed the polarities, there no signal led to the switch. To turn off or on the system press 5 once the switch, the led flashes 3 times. To swap volts or watts, perform 3 button presses, the switch led turns to blue (for watts) or to white (for volts). Beyond 10 seconds of continuous vape, the white led flashes 5 times and the system is shut down to prevent overheating. When the battery arrives at 3,3V, the white LED flashes 15 times, indicating that it is time to recharge it. Everything is functional after verifications, I had to mount an ato 1,2 ohm to be able to vaper!

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
The cardboard box contains an anti-shock foam that preserves the mod during its wanderings from China to your home. The second top-cap and the manual are included in the package. A dehumidifier bag located in a space under the foam helps preserve the electronics. The packaging without being very elaborate is all that is correct, the indications and coordinates of the manufacturer appear there, as well as a label of authentication of the product

- Description of situations in which the product has experienced erratic behavior
Vapelier's note in terms of usability: 4 / 5
Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
With its 300g at a low price, including accu and ato, plan a quiver across the shoulder! Also avoid taking it out during a demonstration, the police could take you for an armed individual, with the consequences that it can lead, even if we are not in the US ...
More seriously, this mod will suit a man much better than a woman. Topped with a Mega-Aerotank or an ato 26mm, it holds without problem the day with a single battery. If it is out of standard visually, it is however limited in terms of possibilities of vape. We forget of course the power-vaping and the ULR mounts, but we can vaper in moderate configurations from 1,2 ohm and up to 2,5 ohms, which still leaves the margin in terms of atomizers.
The regulation offers a smooth vape and the internal electronic system is not greedy in energy, a good point as to the possible autonomy according to the quality of the used batteries. The manufacturer recommends removing the battery in case of prolonged non-use. To clean the copper part and the top-cap, do not use water, prefer the Sopalin and polish the pine with a very fine abrasive. I have not managed to separate the control head from the rest of the tube, it should not be possible or expected.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
The evolution of the material that has raged since last 18 months relegates this mod to the rank of a mega bouzin dust! While its visual appearance is neat as its design, but it corresponds to a vape of another time. A limit of resistance to 1,2 ohm for a maximum power of 15W is the subject of a vape "cushy" that will not be suitable for all. This observation established, it remains a good mod solid and well thought out. In its performance values, it is efficient and built to last, while limiting the risk of breakdowns. Its weight and size, however, can put off some who do not want to be noticed. As it is necessary for all the tastes, it is also very possible that it finds amateurs anxious for reliability and robustness displaying their vape with visually remarkable material.
Looking forward to reading your feedback and comments
see you soon.
