I’d like for this to be an open thread with honest info about Temperature Control Mods (TCM) user experience. I’m sure for an inexperienced TCM user the choices of TCMs are overwhelming. I’ve definitely had my share of hits and misses when it comes to TCMs. I’d like for TCM users to share their preference and experience with TCMs that you own. I hope this will help anyone looking to get into TCMs make a informed decision.
From my experience my simplest and most reliable TCM has been the Snow Wolf 200W. It doesn’t matter what I put on it, it read, self adjust and fire. I’ve had no issues at all with the two I own . Asmodus stands behind these mods with simple tech support.
My IPVs are my second most reliable and ease of use. I have no issues with my IPV4s or my IPV3 Li. I haven’t experienced the battery short issue with the original IPV4, so I’m always cautious when I use them. Thank god they fixed this issue with the IPV4S.
The eVic VT 60w TCM has also been reliable once I figured the correct builds for them. My only issue is now that I’m using 22g Ti wire, it suffers a little when it comes to power.
The Sigelei 75W TCM was a disappointment for me because of the lack of features and power. If you are a heavy vaper like me, you will be disappointed with the battery life. It just don’t fit my style of vaping. I’m strictly vaping Ti coil builds below .1 ohmm and it’s not supported by this TCM.
The SMOK XCube2 is a good TCM once you get it to work. This TCM is far too technical for the average user. My experiences has been good and awful. There is no tech support with this mod… you get what you get and you have to figure it out on your own. There is no consistency when it comes to these TCMs. SMOK seems to send updates every week, further proving these TCMs are flawed. But IMO it doesn’t address the real issues with these TCMs. This TCM is not for an inexperienced TC user and just a PITA unless you happen to get one of the good ones. I would say stay away unless you like a gamble, because that’s what you get with this TCM.
The Vapor Flask v2 was my first TCM and basically a learning tool for me. I don’t use it anymore, but I did learn a lot with this TCM.
SMOK M80 was not a true TCM. It did work perfect as a VV/VW mod. I vaped it forward to a friend in need of a mod.
