150 Watt

As if 100 watts wasn’t enough, and possibly too much, there are now 150 watt box mods waiting to be sold (many as pre-orders) to eager vapers. The only thing e cig designers were waiting for was firmware capable of doing what these items can do. They create monster plumes by operating with sub-ohms below 0.33. It’s amazing what technologists can dream up.

Brands of 150 Watt Box Mods

There are just a few models available at the moment, or they will be when shipments arrive. The other way to enjoy the technology available to you is to build a box mod yourself using specialist shops and ordering parts to accommodate stacked 18650 batteries, purchasing a 150 watt chip, and selecting the other parts which combine to become your personal box mod design.

To be frank, sub-ohm vaping at 100 watts and even 50 watts is excellent. You can wrap to lower than 0.3 ohms in some cases and save yourself some money. Still, if you own a 100 watt box mod using dual batteries, it is internally ready for a firmware upgrade. Just update the chip, not the whole thing.

Sigelei 150

Sigelei 150 Watt Box Mod

China’s Sigelei vaporizer company manufactures a 100W mod for the variable-watt crowd and it is a lovely device. But they did not think 100 watts was enough for sub-ohm vapers. That is why Sigelei added 50% more wattage with their 150W box mod. Here is a run down of what their high-powered device provides the picky consumer.

This is not a pass-through mod: two 18650 batteries come out so you can recharge them separately. A convenient aspect of this design is that you can replace them with two more fully charged batteries and continue to vape wirelessly. Remove batteries by taking off the magnetic back cap. Batteries are not included.

Necessary Safeguards

Protect yourself by purchasing a device with built-in safety features. The Sigelei 150 Watt mod is designed to protect you against low voltage, a shorted circuit, and putting your batteries in the wrong way around. This system warns users if temperatures climb too high, giving you time to turn off the mod so they can cool. Attach an atomizer with a rebuildable deck and the Sigelei 150W will indicate if your build resistance is too low (below 0.1 ohms). A spring-loaded pin accepts all 510-threaded atomizers, so take your pick from the best vapor-chasing tanks and RDAs.

Reviews from Customers

Sigelei customers give this box mod four to five stars routinely, suggesting a price between $80 and $90 isn’t too much to pay for a high-powered box-style vaporizer. It’s very boxy, but you can choose from 4 colors: blue, black, red, and silver. Mainly, vapers choose the Sigelei 150W box mod because it is functional and reliable.

Cloupor T8

They started operating from China in late 2013 and wasted no time catching onto the box mod wave. Cloupor carries box mods and a tube-shaped device built with variable wattage firmware. The T8 is their 150 Watt Box Mod. A small screen sits top right on the box face.

Cloupor T8

You will notice organized clusters of holes around the box at regular intervals. These are vent holes which prevent the inside from overheating but are also pretty features. CPU temperature control also helps to prevent overheating. The chip also protects your battery from a variety of other potential mishaps, which is one reason it is so important. With this type of power in your hands comes the possibility of damage.

You have to remove batteries to charge them: there is no USB charge port. Don’t worry about screws though: this item comes with a magnetic cover to make life easy. Replacements are easy to come by too and available in several colors. Cloupor offers blue, black, red, and silver.

Select from 7 watts to 150 watts; 5.6 volts to 14 volts. Ohms capacity is 0.2 to 4.0. The chip is upgradeable to 200 watts. I didn’t think there was a need for 150 watts and can’t imagine what one would do with a 200 watt mod, but obviously the vaping market is curious to know how far this will go and is willing to pay to find out.

iPV3 by Pioneer4You

The iPV2 was no sooner released than Pioneer4You got busy with version 3. They look exactly the same. The only way to tell them apart is to open them up. Inside they will probably appear the same too since firmware becomes capable of more without enlarging. Three buttons and a screen share one narrow side. Black and silver are your two choices.

IPV 3

Nothing is said on the Cloupor site about having to build coils to extra-low resistance so as to achieve 150 watt resistance, but this instruction is given alongside the iPV3. Anything over 0.33 ohms will work with 150 watts. Resistance below this figure will yield sub-ohm success.

While the Cloupor T8 costs $99, an iPV3 costs $149.99. It is a protected device with an excellent screen and compatible threading. Attach your favorite RDA, Aspire tank, or whatever you like in the eGo/510 range. If it doesn’t look quite right, a collar will take care of appearances.
