It was my first Christmas as a vaper, so what did I get? Vape gear! Including the wildly popular Eleaf iStick. The iStick is a variable voltage, variable wattage, extremely small box mod. I’ve seen it referred to as a “pocket” mod, and I kind of like that designation, the iStick will fit into just about any pocket.
I’ve also seen it referred to as the “MVP 2 killer”. It’s smaller than the popular box mod from Innokin, but more powerful with a 2200mAh battery, voltage range of 3.0V to 5.5V and wattage range of 5.0W to 20.0W. (Innokin has recently introduced the MVP 20, which, as the name suggests, has an upper wattage limit of 20.0W.)
The OLED display on the iStick shows a battery meter, ohms of the attached atomizer, and current wattage and voltage. Depending on which mode you’re in, wattage or voltage, that number will be the largest displayed, with the other number displayed under the ohm reading, so you know at a glance all of the pertinent power information. When you press the fire button to vape the display switches to a countdown, timing the length of your drag and shutting down the output and displaying “Over 10s” if you push on the button for 10 seconds or longer.
On first look, the iStick is pretty impressive, and I can see why it’s so popular. I’ll be using it pretty much exclusively for the next few weeks and then doing a full review. In that review I’ll cover this mod’s performance, features, price/value, quality and looks. Be looking for that review here on Seven Report and our You Tube channel.
