Reviewer comments on business characteristics
The Supra 180 is the new racing beast from J WELL. Always designed in France but built in China for obvious cost reasons, J WELL thus fills the missing link to its catalog, an overkill box.
The Supra 180 is a box equipped with a chipset home 180W temperature control on the most common son (Ni200, Ti and ss316) with a sleek look. The little extra, it is available in two colors.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
At first contact the Supra impresses. Dimensions of good size, hinged battery door, a large OLED screen, only the small fin above the top cap may surprise many.
One thing that is safe, with this design, we like it or we do not like it.
Where it gets a bit complicated, it's under the battery door. The spring loaded top contactors do not suffer from any problem, which is not the case with the lower contact plate. Indeed, it is simply stuck on the chassis and it took only three insertions of the battery for it to take off.
Given the claims announced because of its tariff position, this kind of problem should not happen.
I dare to hope that it was only an accident isolated from the product that I test (hope however minimal).

Reviewer's comments on functional features
The Supra is a model of simplicity, five clicks to turn off / on the box, 3 clicks to switch from variable power mode to temperature control mode and continuous click on the +/- buttons to lock the shoot button.
If the lock function is useful to prevent unwanted shoots, it only locks the shoot button but the power setting is still available ....
I would have preferred to block the power by leaving free running shoot, even having to turn off the box during transport.
Another small effort gentlemen of the r / d 🙂

Box very easy to handle, we mount his fetish atomizer, three clicks to choose his mode (wv-> ct ni200 -> Ti -> ss316 -> wv) and your set up is ready to work.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
For many, the name of Supra is reminiscent of a famous Japanese star of the series Fast and Furious equipped with a power monster that is the 2JZ.
To give such a name to a box is therefore risky, as the expectations will be great.
Well do not worry, this Supra there, is aptly named.
The Supra180 is racy, powerful and allows you a flawless control thanks to a very good electronics. Although still perfectible in the details, the available power is there.
Its temperature control is well managed and gives excellent results in vape TC. Its variable power mode will propel your wildest montages without complaining to the task.
Despite my little glue problem on a contactor that eventually come off, the Supra180 is a very good box that will find its audience without any worries.
Well, I leave you, I have a 400m to fall under the 4sec bar!
