SXmini SL Class V2 In The House!

Just in today! Temp control is spot on and the chip is SUPER fast as usual. Good materials and excellent build quality. Interesting temp control variations but I still don’t like the joystick navigation. The only thing the joystick does well is take up less space on the faceplate. Love the form factor. Glad to see YiHi is going back to their roots as they have not produced a new SL class in around six years. Highly recommended.

The Current Collection

Update: the interesting thing is that you cannot just adjust voltage like a “normal” voltage override mode without the chip doing its calculation on the resistance of the current coil, the battery level and the average room temperature setting. They call it “Intelligent VV”, It appears to always give you the safest setting it thinks is best by leveraging battery efficiency. You cannot override the coil resistance sensitivity and of course the chip sensing the battery level. You can manually adjust the resistance and lock the resistance. With the few atty’s I have tried, the chip takes over the computation of what it thinks is best. I have yet to see more than 6V applied. It will reach 100W shown but always adjusts voltage to achieve that setting. Also, it appears that the curves function is always on, there is no bypass for curves. You either run flat or pick the levels of heat they have picked for you. Where this chip shines is in TC and speed. In TC mode you can go in and adjust voltage and temp but you cannot override the sensing to go over what it thinks is safe for the coil read. It also has an average room temp adjustment which I think also adds to its equation on safety. In other words they have broken down the settings for manually tweaking into 5 presets making the choices easier for the “average” user. Making safety as the top priority. You can go into EQ mod and adjust each line in a graph for a percentage of temperature but I doubt anyone will tweak at this level as it takes so much time to do this which each coil you attach. One other thing is the manual says in the Menu Tweaks menu, there is a setting for Auto Watt when in fact the menu reads Auto Power. This would indicate to me that the manual was written and printed before they made a firmware update. The manual does not mention what Auto Watt/Power is for and what it does. Still trying to figure that out. If anyone knows, please let me know.

VapeMail Today…

Sorry y’all, I have been absent since December but things are going well and I have a brief hand check for today. Will start blogging again and have a lot of activity to blog about. This weeks haul is a one of the last available Odin Mini’s in the USA by Sam the Vaping Bogan and a version 1 Abyss called the Classical as well as the version 3 Abyss called the Nato from Suicide Mods UK and Vaperz Cloud. More to come, stay tuned.

Vaporesso GEN In Today

Coming in today is the Vaporesso GEN 220W box mod in red. Review later. I have heard so many great things about this chipset and enclosure feel. Cant wait to see for myself.

Day two…

Stunning! that about describes the GEN. The feel of the device is what takes the cake. Besides the fact that it has every feature (besides squonking) that any vaper needs, beginner to veteran. One added feature you don’t usually see in a regulated mod very often is the pulse modulation capability which is its default position. This gives the feel of a “pulse” pull a very smooth feel throughout the pull. It does not have however, the pulse modulation whine sound that you would normally encounter on a pure PM mod especially the older ones. In other words, it feels more like the Hex Ohm than the Surric X if you know what I mean. It’s hard to explain until you feel it yourself. Comparing it to the three position variable watt mode (soft, normal, hard) its just smoother. In order to feel the difference I immediately switched to VW Hard mode and you definitely feel the difference. In normal VW mode, it’s hard to tell, it’s just a little quicker/sharper to hit to a specified wattage.

Size wise, its thinner at the edges and not as tall as the iPV 3Li but weighs about the same in the hand. It fattens in the center giving it a very comfortable feel in the hand. Just about perfect for most hands. The new soft rubbery like coating also just feels good and all corners are rounded and beveled, not like the iPV. The coating is not sticky at all, perfect. I also like the fact that the 510 connection is in the dead center of the top, just like the Hex Ohm and the Surric X. The display is bright and easy to read. Battery saver is on by default. I like the way the chip set analyses the coil and sets up the correct settings by default. For advanced vapers, there is a setting for lower ohm builds that you have to manually select if you wish to do so.

I would give the fit and finish an easy 10. The AXON chip set, an easy 10 once you learn how to adjust all of the settings this beast can offer. This mod is definitely the next “GEN” of standard box mods. Add this one to your collection.

I like it so much, I just bought a blue one as well 🙂
