SMY Touch Box 100W TC Box Mod review

SMY Touch Box 100W TC Box Mod

Ever wondered what the future of vaping might look like? Well, I have something today that’s going to blow your mind and despite its looks and functionality it’s remarkably affordable too. The SMY Touch Box 100W TC Box Mod is the first touch screen vaporizer that I’ve tested and I can say I’m more than impressed with how it operates. And while some of you might be thinking – Why do we need a touch screen mod?? We already have phones and tablets for that – I can tell you it delivers a very new and exciting experience and it’s very easy to operate.

 SMY Touch Box 100W TCWhat’s in the box?

The SMY Touch Box 100W TC comes packed in a nice cardboard gift box and inside you will find the mod itself, a user’s manual, a warranty card, a quality control card, and a micro-USB cable. The device is not very big but it’s a bit bulky and measures 85x53x25mm. It also has a fair amount of weight to it and it showed around 176g on our scale. However it feels nice in the hand and the outer body is made from aluminum alloy and carbon fiber with a good amount of trip to it. It really looks fancy but not as sturdy as a non-display Mod like the Tesla Nano. The mod has a spring loaded 510 connector on the top, a round firing button on the main side, and a micro-USB charging port on the base alongside some venting holes for the internal battery. But obviously the star of the show is the 2.4″ capacitive touch screen TFT color display, with a resolution of 320×240 pixels and a lovely graphic user interface.

Where does her power come from?

The SMY Touch Box 100W TC is powered by an internal 2P 2600mah Li battery, which offers a great autonomy despite the generous capacitive display (I managed to get around 4-5h of constant use) and it can be completely recharged in 3-4h. The device is available in four individual colors (Silver, Blue, Rose Gold, and Black) making it suitable for both male and female vapers and, as I mentioned before, it’s very easy to operate.

It displays the current date and time, as well as the remaining battery on the top side and various information about the wattage/temperature, resistance and number of puffs in the center. To make any adjustments or to change between operating modes you simply need to draw an ‘L’ on the touch screen display and the device will enter the menu.  From the menu you can choose working mode, puff info, settings, help, or turn the device off.

Settings and modes

The mod includes eight different working modes (VW, DIY, Ti-TC, Ti-TF, Ni200-TC, Ni200-TF, SS-TC, and SS-TF) and it can be used with Kanthal, Titanium, Nickel and Stainless Steel wire so it’s more than versatile. With Kanthal and Stainless steel it can fire between 0.1 – 3.0 Ohms and in Ti/Ni mode it can work with resistances ranging anywhere between 0.05 – 1.0 Ohm.

User interaction on the SMY Touch TC mod

One the user selects a working mode, the wattage or temperature settings can be adjusted by simply sliding the finger on the display from left to right or vice versa. The wattage can be adjusted between 3-100W and the temperature from 200F – 600F (90-315C respectively). It also comes with a variety of safety features like short circuit protection, overload protection, temperature protection, low voltage protection, and low resistance protection.

Operating the Touch Box is simple and once you get the hang of drawing the gestures it tends to get very relaxing and fun. You can customize everything about this mod and you can even put it in stealth mode if the display lights up your room at night. In terms of performance it’s very similar to other products in the 100W range and the fact that it accepts stainless steel in TC and VW mode is a big plus in my book. You do have to be careful not to drop it because the display (like in the case of mobile phones) doesn’t handle mechanical shocks that great. But all in all, it’s a nice device to use and a cool gizmo at the same time.
