Reviewer comments on business characteristics
A high-end mod box, made in the United States, of a rather compact size. In a nice black matte color, it has a chipset from Evolv with an excellent reputation. It will give you a maximum power of 40 watt (well enough), it will accept your ato from 0,16 ohm. The V2 brings some small change but we'll talk about it later. Note that you will be provided with an 18650 35A 25A battery, and a USB cable. You will have to add XNUMX euros on average to buy the charger by induction.

Reviewer's comments on physical characteristics and perceived quality
Wow! This is probably the reaction you will have in having the product in hand. It's all good, the assembly is irreproachable, matt black rubber paint is top class, buttons adjusted perfectly, no rattle noise, in short a must in the genre. The weight 193 grams is important but ultimately it contributes to the feeling of quality and robustness that gives off the product. One feels from the grip that it will quickly hard to release it. A tip: do not touch it before being sure that you can offer it, because otherwise you could well make a big mistake, an uncontrolled cracking. Be careful otherwise the shark will catch you and he will not let you go.

Reviewer's comments on functional features
Almost perfect. The gold-plated spring stud ensures total flush and perfect conductivity. The thickness of 25 mm will leave you great possibilities of marriage with an ato. Easy to live: the charge is done quickly by the USB port. The induction charging tray looks practical I have not tested but in principle it's cool. All essential functions are there, easily accessible. In terms of security is nickel, the protections are there and the beeper of the pole reversal of the battery will end up waking you in the morning in case of mild clumsiness ... it will BEEP!

Reviewer's comments on conditioning
There we are on the first point a little embarrassing. The box is zero. It is a banal plastic box, worthy of an entry-level product. Hi vaporshark you do in the high end! The manual: there is none. You have a box that has a coil temperature control function that requires the use of 200 nickel wire and you do not even have a p *! **? manual to explain it to us. Excuse me but it makes me crazy to have such a beautiful product treated in this way. Mr. Vaporshark boss, change designer for packaging, it's an incompetent and if you imagined it, sorry, but I can not silence my revolt. A product of this caliber deserves better than that.

Reviewer's comments on the use of the product
Simple and pleasant, the buttons react quarter turn, the vape is just perfect. I did not want to test it too long because the more I held it in my hand, the more I said to myself I was not going to make this one there. No, it's just happiness. The power of 40 watt and its wide range of compatibility with the resistors will seduce many of us (provided of course to have made enough savings). I will also start by building a pot, for donations address them to ...... ..lol

The mood ticket of the reviewer
How to tell you. At first, Vaporshark boxes did not attract me at all. Their price, their pager look of American doctor even made that I did not really understand the people who let a fortune in this box. But now, she arrived home I remember it was a Tuesday and I understood. Past the disappointment of the package that has the flavor of an attack when we bought a product of this price and this quality we can not be satisfied with this m ... .. plastic box which in my opinion is an insult to the content.
Good luck, once in the hand its satin matte and rubberized matte coating calms you right away. It's a pleasure, this soft touch coating avoids the cold side of the aluminum / zinc alloy of the box and ensures a perfect grip. The buttons are very nice and well placed, the box has ideal dimensions these two aspects ensure perfect ergonomics, as long as you do not have to use the screen which, in the process, was enlarged. Yes the screen is at the bottom of the box, it's not practical, either you are flexible wrist, or you put your ato upside down. Beside that it is well protected by a small rim which allows to put the machine on a flat surface without risk of scratching it.
Your ato will be flush thanks to the stud on gold plated spring. The chipset will give you a smooth and precise vape, a real pleasure. I have not often had the opportunity to try high end stuff, so I often think that the difference with more accessible gear is not so great. But I must admit that yes, there is a difference. So no it's not day and night, but still the perceived quality and quality of vape are undeniably superior.
So as you can imagine, I like it a lot. But there is one last but: the guarantee. When I buy a Pipeline 189 €, I say it's expensive tudieu but I normally left for two years minimum. When I pay a box 175 € and the warranty covers only 4 months, I'm supposed to think what? They do not trust their gear, the Ricans? Do not worry, I do not think you will let go as the perceived quality suggests that the product is reliable but still with this amount of investment, we expect a guarantee as high-end as the tariff positioning of the product. .
To conclude this box is extraordinary, a must, if the means are there and you are looking for a good box, look no further. For others like me save ...
