Hardware Review - Sigelei 213W

As a recent release from Sigelei, this mod is rather small, but still packs a very hefty punch that sets it apart from the crowd.

It's technical Specifications are as follows:
Size : 88x44x29mm
Temperature Control (between 100℃-300℃/200℉-570℉)
VW Mode (10W to 213W, in 0.1W increments)
Brass 510 spring loaded pin
Made from Carbon Fibre and Zinc Alloy
Resistance Range: 0.1Ω-3.0Ω
Dual 18650 batteries
Input Voltage 6.4V-8.4V
Output Voltage : 1.0V-7.5V

The mod is coated in carbon fibre with either gold or dark grey accents, it is aesthetically very attractive.
Even with batteries, it is quite light in weight, this may come as welcomed news to some of you, whereas others may prefer a heavier and more substantially weighted device.
In terms of performance, you can easily push it up to about 80W-100W no problem. One of the main selling points of this mod is that it can go up to 213W, unfortunately, most standard 18650 batteries won't be able to cope with the increased wattage.

The Sigelei 213W is rather unique in terms of it's 'Power Up' function, allowing you to increase or decrease the power of the vape when using RDAs or RTAs.

This allows you to automatically heat a coil quickly at a high wattage (for example 130Watts) for a split-second before it goes back to a more preferable and manageable amount of Watts (for example 75Watts). Basically, all this means is you get better performance without the drawbacks of reduced battery life, dry hits and having to wait for a coil to heat up over a longer period of time (of which could damage and over heat your coils). Consider it as a short 'boost' to your coils.

Two 18650 batteries are required to power this mod, and it features a micro-USB port (although I strongly recommend that you use a dedicated charger rather than charging via the device). Generally, I found that two 2500mAh batteries tend to drain quite quickly- especially when operating at a high wattage.

In summary, this device is as simple or as advanced as you make it, for example, you can use it with a tank at 2.0ohm but can also use it with a 0.2ohm coil on an RDA. I think that the 213W mod is easy on the eye as well as being ergonomically pleasing, it's ever so practical to fit in a pocket or handbag, and doesn't look too obvious when out in public. It is well designed in terms of it's functionality and minimalist layout.

This mod from Sigelei will set you back about $90 which,for what you are getting, is actually pretty decent.
Despite not looking like a bulky box mod, it's features are on par with the top devices out there. I really enjoyed this mod it was easy, safe and impressive.
