Review: Wismec SINUOUS SW Review
The manufacturing quality of the SINUOUS SW is good for the most part. It’s not very feature rich, but most starter kits aren’t. When you design something for a beginner, you typically focus on ease of use over versatility.
The mod has a cylindrical shape with an internal battery rated at 3000mAh. There’s only one button on the mod, and there aren’t any power settings. I’ll talk more about the power below, but you basically either have the vape on or off, that’s it. Unfortunately, the max charging current is just 1A. With an internal battery, 2A charging is ideal.
The thing that sets this apart from most other starter kit is the design. This is made with a sleeve that fits around the base, giving it a very Transformer-like look. I actually like it a lot. The sleeve is removable, so you use it without the sleeve or get a different one. The diameter with the sleeve is 28mm. Without it, the diameter seems to be about 25mm.
The tank that comes with this is the Elabo SW. I’m a fan of the regular Elabo tank and the mini version, so it should come as no surprise that I like this one as well. Like the others, this one fills from the top but you have to remove the drip tip to get the top to open. I like this because it keeps it from accidently opening in your pocket. The tank also has adjustable airflow, and interchangeable glass sleeves to adjust the capacity.
Again, I think this is well built for the most part. Most of the shortcomings can be chalked up to it being a beginner device. The one thing that bothers me is the 1A charging.
The overall vapor quality is great. This comes with the 0.2ohm WS triple coil, which I’ve already tried in other versions of the tank. I like it because it delivers a great blend of both flavor and clouds. The flavor is crisp and on point, and the clouds are much bigger than you may expect from a basic starter kit.
These coils have a recommended range of 40-80W, but I found their ideal performance to be right around 50W. This is perfect considering you can’t adjust the wattage output of this vape and it starts at 50W. As the battery depletes, the performance will drop off.
This doesn’t have any power flexibility at all. The wattage output starts at 50W, but will drop off the longer you use it without charging it. It doesn’t say what the minimum resistance coil you could use with this is, but I would guess it’s 0.1ohm.
This is very easy to use. In the past, I would have said that you can’t get any easier than this. But that’s not exactly true, because there are no-button options out there now that are activated when you take a draw.
But as far as traditional vapes go, you still won’t find anything easier. You just click the button a five times to turn it on, then press and hold to engage the coils. That’s all there is to using it. To fill the tank, you just pop the drip tip out and flip the top open. It’s very convenient.
The Wismec SINUOUS SW is a good starter kit.
The big selling points are the design and the vapor quality. The look may not be for everyone, but in my opinion it’s more visually appealing than most. The vapor quality is definitely a step up from the average starter kit too. The flavor is excellent, and it puts out surprisingly big clouds.
I’d be all about this if it just had 2A charging. That seems like such an important thing to include for an internal battery mod, and one that in theory shouldn’t have been hard to achieve.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a good mod. For the price you can get one at, it’s worth getting if you like how it looks.
Those who are looking for a more basic setup with lots of power be sure to check out the SMOK G150. And for those who want a more portable vape that offers wattage control, we highly recommend the Vaporesso Target Mini.
