Reviewer comments on business characteristics
With the deserved success of their dripping character (built in partnership with Compvape) and largely oriented power vaping, it lacked a box high power catalog to finally offer a full range of products dedicated to the vape.
So Dovpo was chosen for the design of the latter.
A box that goes straight to the basics, offering power of 150w, a neat and durable design and high-end electronics. This is what the Twisted Messes 150w offers.

Vapelier's note regarding functional characteristics: 4 / 5
Reviewer's comments on functional features
In addition to power ranging from 5 to 150w, the Twisted Messes offers a temperature control mode compatible with NI200 and titanium, only stainless steel is missing.
It will be able to shoot from 0.05Ω but will only be able to send 150w with resistances between 0.09 and 0.30Ω for 8.4v maximum.
What to make beautiful clouds!
Of course, it embeds all the security of use such as the protection against the reversal of the batteries or the internal temperature excess or the protection against short circuits.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
Well, we'll be easy, I love this box!
Beautiful (everything is relative), big and powerful, the Twisted Messes does what these designers have done: send heavy!
150w of exploitable power from 0.09Ω, gold plating 24 carats on all the contacts and the switches, a silicone body like a Californian one to ensure an impeccable grip and a very efficient system of retention of the batteries. Thick but respected specifications at word ready.
We may regret, however, a temperature control a little lightweight support resistive (even if, personally, this feature does not interest me), an electronics a bit energy consuming and the lack of USB port.
While it's still a good idea to charge your batteries on a dedicated charger, a USB port is always useful when your batteries are empty and when you're on the go, but Dovpo felt it was not necessary to have one. .
But for the rest, it's all good!
