Reviewer comments on business characteristics
The Vaporflask Classic is part of one of the three Vaporflask models (Classic, Lite, Stout) from Wismec. This electronic box in "classic" version, has a particular shape that takes as a model that of a flange.
Equipped with 2 accumulators, its power can reach 150W and allows you to vape in two different modes, on powers (with a minimum resistance of 0.1Ω) or on temperatures (with a minimum resistance of 0.05Ω).
This box is provided with a micro USB cable for an update of its chipset, if necessary, or a recharging of the accumulators.
Although the design is attractive, it is a significant weight but its curve rounded in the palm of the hand quickly makes you forget this detail. The beautiful is attractive with a reliable chipset pushing the watts especially as it is easy to use, it also knew how to keep a correct size.
It comes in three different colors: black, steel or white.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
Although the thickness of the box is only 22mm, the template including the curvature of 5mm gives you a total thickness of 27mm for a width of 60mm. The weight is 213g empty and 302 grams (mini) with the 2 batteries. The body is in matt black anodized aluminum (for my test product) and contrasts with the brushed aluminum buttons. This coating is particularly soft to the touch but significantly marks all fingerprints.
On the top cap, the connection is stainless steel with a spring-loaded pin. On this top, we also distinguish a discrete engraving noted VF for VaporFlask.
On all the outer curved side, is the hood fixed by 4 magnets for the insertion of the batteries. Under the box, a slight slot allows to insert a nail to lift it. The polarity of the batteries being indicated inside, the location is done simply.
Below, at each end, at the level of the batteries we notice 2 series of 4 holes for the possible degassing of the batteries. In the middle, we find some discreet inscriptions with roughly the name of the box.
The screen with the buttons and the micro USB connector are placed on the cutting edge of the VaporFlask opposite the 510 connection, which makes its use convenient. This OLED screen is curved and remains classic with just the useful information constantly: battery charge, resistance value, voltage and power.
The buttons are round with a conical surface for a better feeling to the touch. They are perfectly integrated and react well without any hesitation. On the bottom we have the micro USB connector to connect the cable, to perform a chipset update or reloading.

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
Finally here is a packaging as I like!
With this VaporFlask Classic, nothing is missing. You receive it in a large rigid cardboard box, in which your box will be wedged in a black foam. In this box, a second floor, conceals a warranty with a user manual and a micro USB cable for reloading or updating the chipset.
I particularly appreciated the presence of the instructions for use provided in many languages and the effort to have a correct translation. Thus, all information is given to us and in French.
Perfect packaging that honors this product.

- Easy to change the batteries: Easy, even standing in the street
- Did the mod heat up? No
- Has there been erratic behavior after one day of use? No
- Description of situations in which the product has experienced erratic behavior
Vapelier's note in terms of usability: 5 / 5
Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
In use this VaporFlask Classic has a wonderful handling. Comfortably installed in the palm, it makes us quickly forget its weight. The support on the switch is instinctive and the button is sufficiently salient to make the handling pleasant.
The information on the screen looks a bit small and the curvature reduces the brightness a bit. Even if everything is clearly visible, there was enough room for a larger OLED screen, it might have been more appreciable.
For the insertion of the batteries, the hood is well designed, it is correctly maintained with 4 magnets and no game hinders the fixation. The polarity of the batteries is clearly indicated so that no error is made.
Regarding the settings, it is useless for me to describe the operating mode since it is given in the manual and in French, however for those who are interested, know that it is relatively simple and that the approach of each step is judiciously chosen.
It is very important that you choose the same two batteries dedicated to this box, each having a CDM of at least 25 A.
The module allows to restore a good regulated vape and thanks to dual batteries, both in V / W mode and temperature control, you will not only have great power but also a perfect autonomy.
The connection of the charging module by micro USB is located on the bottom side of the box, this will allow you to leave the VaporFlask standing during reloading.
The small defect I could do to this product is that it was not designed with a millimeter more to accept 23mm diameter atomizers.

The mood ticket of the reviewer
A box has almost 100 euros which is a bit more expensive compared to some box of the market that offer the same opportunities (even some others). But its sober and ergonomic appearance with a coating of "velvet", make it a classy object.
In addition, this form Bean is really ideal for us to forget the weight of this VaporFlask Classic. Ergonomics that gives excellent support in the palm of the hand, with a manipulation on the switch that is just obvious.
With these two batteries and its proprietary chipset, it has a consistent autonomy and a vape regulated very pleasant. Moreover, its use is easy to exploit.
I regret the display of the screen that remains a fair bit, and the size of the thickness of the box that does not allow to place an atomizer more than 22 mm diameter without it clogs.
