Today we’ll be taking a look at the Reuleaux RX Mini kit by Wismec. If you are familiar with the regular Reuleaux mod, you’ll notice right away that visually this is just a smaller version of it. This kit includes the RX Mini mod and a Reux Mini tank. We’ll be reviewing the entire kit today, but you can obviously pair the mod with other tanks as well. There’s a lot to like about this kit, like the power flexibility and overall build quality, but there’s also something we’re not big fans of. Read the whole review to learn exactly what we do and don’t like about the Reuleaux RX Mini… But before we do that be sure to check our vape buyer’s guides for important information to consider before making your first purchase.
Review: Wismec RX Mini Starter Kit
From the outside, this really does look like someone took a shrink ray to the full sized Reuleaux. It’s about half the size, but the design is exactly the same and you really aren’t sacrificing all that much. They did a great job cramming a bunch of features into such a small mod.
This is capable of delivering up to 80w of power, and it has variable wattage, temperature control, bypass, and TCR modes to choose from. It’s powered by a 2100mAh internal battery, and it has a big digital screen compared to its overall small size.
The kit comes with a top-filled Reux Mini tank. It is built well and offers airflow adjustment. You can use pretty much any tank that has a 510 connection with this mod, but only tanks with a 22ml diameter will sit flush.
For the most part, I think everything in this kit is built very well. The one thing I’m not a big fan of is the fact that they kept the same shape as the full sized Reuleaux. One of the main reasons to get a mini mod is the increased portability, but the shape makes it inconvenient to carry in your pocket. I’ll talk about this more in the portability section.
Again, they did a great job packing a ton of functionality into this mini mod. The wattage range is 1-80w. It has temperature control modes for nickel, titanium, and stainless steel.
The temperature range for each of these modes is 200-600F, and it also has TCR and bypass modes. The resistance range for the variable wattage and bypass modes is 0.1-3.5ohm. For the temperature control modes, its 0.05-1.5ohm.
Portability is where this kit loses me. The six sided design wasn’t bad on the full sized version, because it was too big to fit in your pocket anyway. But it doesn’t make any sense to scale it down smaller and keep the six sides.
You can’t put this in your pocket comfortably, and it’s honestly so small that it doesn’t fit that well in your hand either. I like that they are experimenting with different shapes beyond the typical boxy design, but in this case, it comes at the cost of functionality.
If I’m going mini, I want something I can carry easily. It’s that simple.
There’s a lot to like about the Wismec Reuleaux RX Mini Kit.
It offers a ton of functionality in a small package. You can’t really ask for more power options, as it has wattage, temperature control, bypass, and TCR modes. The ranges for each are great, and higher than many full-sized units maxed out at just a few years ago. 80 watts will be enough for the vast majority of people.
The included tank also works well. It delivers good flavor and the adjustable airflow gives you the ability to control the draw resistance a bit. Everything I’ve mentioned so far is exactly what you would hope to see from a mini kit.
I don’t want to beat a dead horse, but the shape really is a turnoff for me in this case. The way I see it, the main reason to get a mini mod is for the increased portability. The six sided design means this will never sit flat in your pocket, and it’s a good deal wider than many other options on the market. Why opt for a shape that makes carrying it less enjoyable?
