We all know the very popular smoant from the Charon TS and Battle star box mods. They contacted us a week ago asking if we were interested in reviewing their new products. The Battlestar mini and the Smoant Cylon. It looks SMOANT created not only one, but two brand new best sellers.
Smoant Battlestar Mini 80W TC
Following in the footsteps of its bigger brother, the Smoant Battlestar Mini 80W TC is a mod definitely worth checking out. This single 18650 is intended for beginners and intermediate vapers. It has enough power to fuel up any mid range sub ohm tank and build quality is very good.
Measuring 81mm x 37mm x 24mm it’s compact, elegant and portable. Fits perfectly in your hand and button placement feels so natural. Comes with a 0.96 inch OLED display and has all the features of any modern day vaporizer. You can select between power mode, bypass, temperature control, TCR and DVW curve.
On top of the Smoant Battlestar Mini 80W TC we have a spring loaded 510 connector. You can use it with atomizers up to 24mm with no overhang. The fire button, display, adjustment buttons and micro-USB port are located on the main side. Battery door is magnetic and acts as the back panel for the device. Wattage range is between 1 - 80W and the menu system is very intuitive and user friendly. You also have TC mode for Nickel, Titanium, Stainless Steel and TCR. Temperature range is between 200 - 600F and minimum resistance is 0.05 Ohms.The mod reminds us of a VTC Mini, with super fast response times and great temperature control.
In terms of performance the Smoant Battlestar Mini 80W TC is a mid range device with plenty of features. It’s great for 0.4 - 0.5 Ohm resistances and 25W - 40W power outputs. Lower resistances and bigger wattages will drain the battery in no time, so it’s good to have this in mind.
