It's constructed really well when you consider the price. Do not anticipate it to be built like a high-end mod, and I would not dare drop the iStick, however to be frank, I 'd believe Eleaf could've gotten away with charging 2x as much for this-- as well as at that cost it still would've been cheaper than many others at this power range and develop quality
iSmoka iStick 100 Watt Temp Control E-Cig Mod It feels reasonably sturdy and solid, however it does have a quite considerable button rattle that you hardly even need to shake the mod to hear. However at this rate, that rattle must simply advise you of all the cash saved!
Finally, the iStick 100 Watt mod has among the best battery doors for these types of mods! iSmoka Eleaf 100 Watt TC E-Cig Mod Having actually just evaluated the Sigelei 150 Watt TC, I can state that this battery door is markedly better than the Sig's. The iStick 100 Watt's battery door is hung on by two little pair of incredibly strong, circular magnets. These magnets are like little bullies! Seriously. The battery door snaps into place like it's gotten pimp smacked.
Keep in mind: I am aware that the battery door or the Sigelei 150 Watt TC weighs more than the iStick 100 (about 33 grams to 20 grams), so it's not an apples to apples comparison, but even still, the magnets ought to be as strong as they have to be to keep things securely intact. The iStick 100 Watt has that in spades. The battery door will * not * unintentionally come off!
As I said in my intro, this mod is incredibly basic to use. It's an iStick after all. It works much like the other iSticks. The main distinction with this one and the other VW/VW iSticks is that it's got loads of power and the user offers the batteries
Here's a fast rundown of the functions and the best ways to use them:.
To turn the mod on, quickly click the fire button five times.
To shift between VV and VW, when the mod is on, rapidly click the fire button three times.
To lock the modification buttons, concurrently press them both for three seconds (the exact same to turn unlock it).
To switch the screen to a left-handed view, when the mod is off, all at once push the change buttons for three seconds.
When firing the mod, the normal readout switches over to a 2nd counter that will stop firing at 10 seconds.
That's it! Hell, I never ever make use of or focus on any of those 'features' other than to turn on the damned thing. It's one of those mods that you have to do is to take it out of the box, pop the batteries in, click the button 5 times and choose your atty.
Exactly what I like about the overall aesthetic appeals of the device is that it is not tripping over itself to look hip. I believe too many mods are designed to look 'cool' and, not only wind up missing the mark but, end up looking downright awful. This mod keeps it simple, and while it may not make anybody drool, it likewise will not make anybody wish to throw up!
The Eleaf iStick 100 Watt presently is available in 2 colors: shimmery silver and matte black. I do not like the shimmery silver, however for this rate, I would not care if it was glittery pink ... all right, that's a lie
The top of the mod is a bit over 22 mm, but it's so slight I do not even notice it. This might be a good idea for those that have atties in the 23-24 mm range-- I can only guess that those would not have any hang-over, or would have hardly any
Like all the iStick mods, both the leading and the bottom of the mod are chrome (genuinely mirror-like; I guess it's cool to see your mouth and nose while you vape?). Eleaf 100W Temp Control Box Mod But here, rather of being more oval shaped like in the older designs, now it's slightly hour-glassed shaped. A subtle change and it looks excellent.
Power of the iStick 100 Watt.
I do not have any equipment or knowhow to check these type of elements of a device-- all I have is my atomizers, drip tips and my sense of sensation. For what I can inform, whatever watts I have actually set on this device feels the same as on my other gadgets set to the exact same power
Keep in mind: No issues with my atomizer checking out high or low.
The screen is extremely well lit. It's brighter than the other iSticks and I do not have any concerns reading it in brilliant lighting. It's the exact same layout as the other iSticks and if I had to gripe, I 'd state that the atomizer resistance readout is a bit small. However honestly, I don't frequently need to read that (or the screen in general) due to the fact that after I put my atty on and see that everything is having a look at, I set it and forget it.
No "round-robin" as Pbusardo states, but holding down the change buttons will get you to where you want at a decent-enough speed, unless you want to go from 5 watts all the method as much as 100 watts, in which case it will take you over 23 seconds. I think of that most individuals won't be making those sort of jumps though.
The 510 Connection.
Spring-loaded copper 510 pin. A few of my atties sit flush and others do not (I think that is due to the fact that the 510 has actually an ever-so-slightly raised collar). But the atties I have that don't sit flush just have a hairline space-- absolutely nothing to whimper about.
It's on the bottom of the mod. And when I state "bottom," I don't suggest it's near the bottom, it's on the bottom-- indicating under the mod. That's incredibly wacky to put it there, however anyway, I am unsure why anybody would want to charge a dual-18650 mod via a charge port when it has replaceable batteries. I guess if you are out and about it might make good sense (if you don't have any back-up batteries), but I'll likely never ever use it.
