WOTOFO is perhaps best known for their popular RDA models, like the Freakshow and Troll, and their RTA models, like the Serpent and Conqueror. They recently introduced the Serpent Sub Tank and Serpent 50w Box Mod. They package the two together as the WOTOFO Serpent 50w Box Mod Full Kit. Heaven Gifts sent one for a Seven Report review.
In addition to both the tank and mod, WOTOFO includes a replacement glass tube, micro USB charging cable and a second 0.5 ohm SSOCC coil.
The Serpent Sub Tank
A 0.5 ohm SSOCC coil comes installed in the tank, with a spare in the box that also holds the micro USB cable. WOTOFO has etched the resistance and suggested max wattage, 40 watts, on the base of each coil. The Serpent Sub Tank is compatible with Kanger OCC and SSOCC coils.
The Serpent Sub Tank is top filling with a 3.5 ml capacity. To fill the tank, simply unscrew the top cap and fill with ejuice. To replace a coil unscrew the base of the tank, unscrew the old coil and insert a new one. Before vaping with a new coil, prime it by dripping a few drops of ejuice into the center of the coil and on the cotton visible through the ejuice ports on the side of the coil.
Re-attach the base of tank and fill it with ejuice. With a new coil be sure to allow it soak in the ejuice for a few minutes before vaping. The airflow on the Serpent Sub Tank is adjustable by rotating the collar at the base of the tank.
The Serpent 50w Box Mod
The Serpent mod is a variable wattage and temperature control device powered by an internal 2000 mAh battery. It will fire coils with a resistance range of 0.1 – 1.0 ohm in temperature control mode and 0.1 – 3.0 ohm in variable wattage mode.
There are three buttons on the front of the Serpent, the fire button and the up and down buttons. The display is located on top of the mod in front of the 510 connector. To turn the device on or off, press the fire button five times.
To switch between power modes hold in the fire button and the up button at the same time. This will display the menu with options for wattage mode and three temperature control modes, Nickel, Titanium and Stainless Steel. Use the up and down buttons to highlight your choice of modes and press the fire button to select it.
Adjust temperature or wattage with the up and down buttons. The wattage range is 7 – 50 watts with adjustments in 0.1 watts. The Serpent 50w Box Mod has a temperature range of 200° – 600° F with adjustments in 10° increments, and 100° – 315° C with adjustments in 5° increments. To switch from one temperature scale to the other simply scroll to the top or bottom of one to get to the other.
When you’ve attached a new coil to the Serpent you’ll be prompted to set the base resistance. The display will read, “Select Coil: New/Old”, use the up and down buttons to select an option and press the fire button to select it. This should be done with the coil at room temperature.
Once you’ve found a wattage or temperature setting that suits you, you can lock it in by pressing both the up and down buttons at the same time. The display will read “Key Lock” and you won’t be able to adjust wattage or temperature unless you unlock the setting by again holding in the up and down buttons.
I filled the Serpent Sub Tank with Cinnanutz ejuice from Vapes Gone Wild, set the power mode to Stainless Steel temperature control and set the temperature to 370° F. With the airflow set to about half open I gave it a first vape. Flavor and vapor production were well above average, especially at this relatively low temperature setting.
I upped the temperature to 400° F and the flavor really began to pop. I did notice that the flavor was especially pure and clean, unlike some other organic cotton coils that require a bit of a break in. At 440° F I found the real sweet spot for this particular ejuice.
I’ll be using the WOTOFO Serpent 50w Full Kit extensively for a week or so and will then post a full, in-depth review. If you follow Seven Report on Facebook or Twitter you’ll find out that way when that review is live.
WOTOFO lists the Serpent 50w Full Kit at $79.99. Heaven Gifts, who supplied the kit for a Seven Report review, has it listed for $61.80.
