Reviewer comments on business characteristics
The Twisted Messes is a gem that knows how to cash!
Under its American rappers, this box is dressed in black rubber and gold for the appearance a little bling bling reminiscent of the Bronze blacks black. With its weight and volume imposing, the midinets will contrast with this very atypical look that attracts "bads boys", but we love ... Na!
Just his name "Twisted Masses", it already evokes several things, the mixed threads, the big montages, but it is also the first box of the "coils builder" of the same name who realized in collaboration with Dopvo this TM150.
It is an electronic box that loads two 18650 size accumulators in series to reach a power of 150W. Its proprietary chipset also gives us the opportunity to vape in temperature control, on Nickel or Titanium son assemblies, with a range between 100 and 300 ° C (or 200 and 600 ° F) for a starting resistance of 0.5Ω up to 'to 1Ω in temperature control and 3Ω in power (VW).

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
The frame of our Bad Box is zinc alloy with a black silicone gel coating. This rubberized aspect gives it a particularly soft touch, it is a giant eraser that is held in the hand and is anti-slip. In addition, no need to worry about scratches or fingerprints because it is perfectly well protected with silicone that hangs well in the hand, but beware of cat hair, dog and dust that they will tend to to stick easily.
This is not a perfect parallelepiped since its rounded shapes give a 100 x 57 x 28.5mm template, but beware of the compatibility of your atomizers because at the connector, I measured a width of 25mm.
The bling bling side is located at the battery door, although it is gold-plated, the color is very bright and marks relatively quickly as soon as it is placed on a rough surface. However, its handling is simple and fast, no need for a screwdriver since it slides very well in its housing. I appreciated the small contactor, which has the effect of blocking the hatch and ensure perfect contact with the batteries and thus prevent it from opening unexpectedly. On the inside of the hatch, two small magnets are there to ensure a perfect implementation, the [+] and [-] are well indicated and 6 ventilation holes provide ventilation.
At the grip, attention guys, it will have to leave the biscotos, because not only it has volume, but in addition, the beast is its weight. Not sure that the girls find their account with a weighing that reveals a good 376gr (284gr without batteries) to vaper with the two batteries, keep the wrist flexible!
The set, screen and buttons, contrasts with the gummed look and rounded edges of the box since it is rectangular and glassy but it fits perfectly. The switch and adjustment knobs are round with a nice diameter and are plated in gold 24 carats, much less brilliant than the hatch, it brings credibility to the value of the product and thus prevents it from doing "kitsch", no, on the contrary, it's very good taste!
On each side of the box we have on one side, the logo with the name of DOVPO golden color and on the other a nice caricature of coil with the name of the TWISTEDMESSES of the same color, in a shade a little dull .
Opposite the screen on the other side is a rounded edge on which we find the caricature of the coil in relief and two small Allen screws discreetly placed on both sides of the logo.
The connector is made of stainless steel, spring-loaded, for a classic 510 connection.
On the aesthetic side everything is perfectly balanced and assembled between the different materials, inscriptions and colors. It's good work.

Vapelier's note regarding functional characteristics: 5 / 5
Reviewer's comments on functional features
The features of the Twisted Messes are quite correct. A compatibility diameter of atomizers up to 25mm to perfect his style of big hard, with a floating pin, the setup will be flush. The ideal is a black and gold dripper with a nice twisted 0.2Ω assembly (and even less) since its capacity allows up to 150W power. So with big ... very big clouds you access the supreme look of the "Bad Box".
The specifics of this product are not huge, but the baby is not there to be fiddled with, only to be effective:
• The voltage during use is between 6.4 and 8.4 volts
• The max output current is 40Ampers
• The working range is between 5 and 150 W
• Range of resistive values in Power, from 0.05Ω to 3Ω
• Two modes of use: variable power and temperature control
• Resistive admitted in temperature control: Nickel 200 and Titanium
• The working range in temperature control is between 100 ° C and 300 ° C or 200 ° F and 600 ° F
• Resistive value range in CT, from 0.05Ω to 1Ω
• Screen Saver Mode
• Right / left display rotation of 180 °
The protections are perfectly assured:
• Against short circuits
• Against the voltage too low to avoid deep discharges
• Against overheating
• Against resistance temperatures that are too high
• Against polarity reversal
• Button lock
• Against resistances that are too low or too high
• Automatic stop at inactivity after 60 seconds
• Blocking the resistance value in temperature control mode
However, you can not update your Chipset since no USB port is offered with the Twisted Messes. Cable charging is not possible either.

Vapelier's note on packaging: 4 / 5
Reviewer's comments on conditioning
For packaging, we stay on the classic with a very solid cardboard box in which a white foam velvet, houses the box.
Below, a certificate of authenticity comes with a user guide.
Although the manual is entirely in English, geeks familiar with electronic boxes, can easily understand it because it is dense and illustrated. Pleasant thing on the first page of this manual, is given the size of the box template as well as the material, information that is rarely listed.
A very nice packaging that matches the price range of the product. No more need ... .heuuu, yes, can be a translation for the record.

Vapelier's note in terms of usability: 4 / 5
Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
For use, she is really childish:
• 5 clicks on the switch to turn on the box or block the buttons.
• 3 clicks on the switch to change the mode: V / W, TC-Ni or TC-Ti (to go from one to another one must wait 2 seconds and re-press the 3 switch once).
• Pressing [+] and [-] allows you to block the value of the resistor.
• When the box is locked, press and hold [+] and the switch rotates the screen.
• When the box is locked, pressing and holding [-] goes to screen saver.
During use the buttons are absolutely flawless, like the box, no latency, everything is responsive and in place.
The screen is clearly visible thanks to a beautiful light. All information is present on the screen with the power entered in very big.
The trap system for access to the batteries is ingenious and simple, just think about "locker" this hatch to vaper, in order to have a contact. No risk for it to open accidentally.
The only flaw would be weight but the jig is made for a sturdy hand. In addition, the ergonomics with the position of the buttons makes you forget this detail as well as the adhesion of the material that remains glued to the palm.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
The Twisted Messes is above all a look mixed with gold, a black silicone coating and power. It is very much in the style of American black rappers with golden necklaces, but is above all an object of excellent quality, made to send.
No complications in use, no chipset update, no charging cable. Just associate it with a good dripper, make a beefy editing and vape to fog.
It does not heat and good student, provides what you ask him up to 150W but beware, with this power you will not be very long (plan additional batteries).
My biggest regret about this box, remains the choice of resistive wire that is content with Nickel or Titanium in TC mode, do not expect anything more.
A quality / price ratio that is still a little expensive for limited features, but is overtaken by physical qualities of character and good constitution.
