Consumers have trusted Sigelei to manufacture top-quality e cig products for several years.
Their latest addition to the various mods available in this diverse market is the 100 Watt Box Mod.
In this sector alone, there has been an explosion of choice: dozens of new box mods, some cheaply made with sub-standard parts, lots of high-end devices, and plenty of cheap clones.
Sub-ohms and High Wattage
If you can’t wrap your head around the idea of a 100 Watt mod, you are not the only one. Their audience is specialized; often made up of cloud chasers. Variable wattage box mods are well known for their role in winning cloud blowing competitions like the ones hosted at vape shops and featured on vendors’ Facebook pages. Vapers around the US argue that at sub-ohms and really low sub-ohms particularly, they can win these competitions. Even without a prize involved or the prestige of taking home a trophy, many vapers simply appreciate being in full control of their e cig’s output.
Sigelei 100 Watt Box Mod
What does Sigelei’s latest design have to offer? To understand this technology, it is essential to dig past its shell to the inner workings of a chip-powered box mod. Sigelei uses the Yihi SX330 V3 chip for their 100 Watt mod: a chip the size of a grocery store loyalty card used in several other mods of similar design and build. This chip runs at a low temperature and acts as the nerve center, connecting with the battery to provide a particular type of output according to the vaper’s chosen wattage level.
A chip also protects your box, battery, and wires from overheating and breaking down. You are protected from overcharge, short circuit, and low voltage. While it sounds like your box mod is packing a lot of gear, the chip is very light and can be taken out so as to replace it with an updated version in the future.
The box this chip and your battery are housed in is also lightweight. Most such items are made from aluminum so as to be durable but not too heavy.
Sigelei 100 Watt Box Mod Technical Specifications
You will be using two 18650/30A batteries in this device and any clearo, tank, or rebuildable atomizer that attaches to a 510 thread. The pin is adjustable for extreme compatibility. Choose sub-ohms from 0.15 to 0.5 ohms to achieve the full 100 watt capacity of your device. Anything over 0.5 ohms to a maximum of 3 ohms will only be adjustable to 50 watts or lower, starting as low as 7 watts.
When you adjust from the 50 to 100-watt range, select values at 1-watt increments. Below 50 watts you can change them by 0.1-watt increments to be more precise with power.
The back attached with tiny screws to provide access to the battery or to upgrade the chip. A set of spare screws, an extra pin, and a screwdriver all come with your Sigelei 100 Watt Box Mod for about $110.
Select one of just two colors: silver or black. Compare this device to anything and it will probably remind you of a tiny VHS video player (the precursor to a DVD player for those too young to remember).
Pros and Cons of the Sigelei 100W
You can’t hurt your box mod but selecting a 0.6-ohm tank and your device can read resistance, displaying it on the easy-to-read screen. It takes skill to wrap a coil for sub-ohms (or to wrap a coil at all) so this is not a device recommendable to beginners or even intermediate users. New vapers should be warned not to get too cocky.
For advanced vapers, there is something of a challenge involved in selecting every element that contributes to a perfect vaping session, especially if experience is making you fussy. You notice tiny differences which dictate the sort of e-liquid or propylene glycol/vegetable glycerin ratio ideal for your preferred throat hit or vapor production. A box mod like the Sigelei 100 Watt gives you the power to be as finicky as you want.
