Sigelei 213W mod review

Sigelei 213W Mod

When it comes to high power mods I did review some great devices like the Tesla Invader III or the Smy 200, but I have a brand new product today that’s a real game changer. It’s called the Sigelei 213W and in my opinion it’s one of the best over 200W mods on the market at the moment in terms of build quality and performance. Made from Zinc alloy and top quality carbon fiber, this mod has a very interesting design and it hits like a beast. It can go as high as 213W and it’s packed with features that would totally impress any cloud chaser out there.

Sigelei 213W yellowThe Sigelei 213W comes packed in a black cardboard box and inside you will find the mod itself, a micro-USB charging cable, a warranty card, a warning card and a user’s manual. The first thing you’ll notice about this product is awesome build quality and the materials used. It feels very sturdy but at the same time light and the carbon fiber finish is soft yet durable. The Zinc alloy is also perfect for the body and top and bottom plates as it doesn’t act as a fingerprint magnet.

As opposed to other box mods, Sigelei decided to place display on the face of the mod, with the two small adjustment buttons just on top of it. The firing button is located on the main side and it feels incredibly clicky yet with a certain tension to it. On the bottom we have the hinged battery door and it’s the same mechanism as on my DSLR photo camera, which I have to say I enjoy.

The Sigelei 213W is powered by two high drain 18650 batteries (sold separately) and it delivers a maximum output current of 35A. The micro-USB charging port is located also on the main side, below the firing button and the 510 connector at the top features a brass plated spring loaded pin. I would recommend using at least 25A batteries (same type and brand) and I also recommend using an Sigelei 213W side viewexternal charger if you have one available. I’m not saying you can’t charge the batteries via the micro-USB port, but this puts a lot of stress on the board and it’s probably a good idea to do it with an external charger.

The menu is pretty complex, but at the same time it’s very easy to operate. The device goes from 10W all the way up to 213W in 0.1 W increments until 100W and in 1W increments above that value. It works in variable wattage mode and temperature control mode and you can use it with Nickel, Titanium and Stainless Steel. In fact if you go for Stainless Steel it’s going to let you pick what type of SS (314, 316, or 317). The Sigelei 213W also lets you work in temperature control mode with other materials, as long as you enter the correct coefficient. This feature is called ‘TCR’ mode and it allows you to fill in the data for five types of materials.

Sigelei 213W battery coverThe lovely OLED display shows detailed information about everything that might be going on with your device. It even shows the Amps output and output voltages for both batteries in real time. It’s very bright and it measures 0.91 inches so it’s pretty generous. The minimum resistance you can use on this mod is 0.1 Ohms and the maximum is 3.0 Ohms in variable wattage mode. It also allows the user to customize the way the board functions in terms of the initial power applied to the resistance and the duration of the initial warm-up.

When it comes to performance, the Sigelei 213W is one of the hardest hitting mods I’ve ever tested and it’s a great product to go with their latest Moonshot tank I reviewed a few weeks ago. It’s the type of mod that looks great with an RDA on top of it and you can definitely go cloud chasing with it. To be honest I didn’t go over 120W with it, but I plan on trying some new builds in the near future. All in all, it’s great value for the price you pay and the same build quality that made Sigelei a renowned brand all across the world.
