Reuleaux RX2 20700 Review Bottom Line
Wismec have releases the Reuleaux RX2 20700 mod which features the use of high amperage 20700 batteries with the option of also using 18650 batteries. The mod is easy to use, comfortable to hold and operate, and slightly smaller than other models they have released. Coupled with the Gnome tank this kit produces some of the best-tasting vapor on the market, making it a sure consideration for one to add to your collection.
The Reuleaux dual RX2 20700 vape mod comes either as a kit which includes the Gnome tank or just on its own. But how does this new mod by Wismec compete with its past mods and others on the market? In this review, we take a close look to see how it performs and whether it’s one you should rush out to buy or just one to avoid!
Since writing this review, however, Wismec has now released the Reuleaux Tinker Kit, a new version of this and other kits, making it one of the best on the market.
The Wismex Reuleaux RX2 20700 comes with the mod in varies colors, the Gnome tank if you buy the kit version. The tank comes with 2 coil heads (0.2 ohms and 0.15ohm) spare glass etc.
Also in the kit comes the normal stuff like USB charger, instructions, and cards on how to use the tank!
You don’t see many vape mods using anything other than 18650 batteries for some reason. This may be due to the size as the 20700 is a little larger and for the extra battery life you get, we do ask ourselves whether it’s really worth it! You still need a recharge in the middle of the day!
On the front of the mod below the huge, nicely designed firing button is the bright 1.3inch design that’s easy to read both indoors and outside. Showing the current mode Wattage/temperature, the voltage, resistance of the coil, the amperage as well as the power indicator of both batteries, this may sound a lot, but the design is really easy to read.
Also on the front is a single rocker-style button to adjust the wattage, which is slightly recessed to prevent accidentally changing the settings! The micro USB port is just below this switch, which allows for firmware upgrade and allows 2amp balance charging.
The base of the unit has a switch which unlocks the battery cover, which simply slides off. Make sure to check out our vape deals page as you can often get this mod and others like it at crazy prices!
To access the menu area within the device, you click the firing button 3 times. The mode will then start blinking and with the bottom button, you can select from the menu. You can flick it to temperature mode and choose which coil type your using, for example, stainless steel, nickel or titanium.
You can also lock in your resistance, change the display and some other cool features like putting the device in stealth mode so the display is hidden. This is done by holding the firing button and the down button. You can also lock the up/down button by holding them both down for a couple of seconds. Of course, it has the standard 5 clicks on and off feature as well!
So really a lot of features that you would expect from any of the high-end or best vape mods.
Yes, this mod is a dual battery unit, but the big difference here is that it uses dual 20700 batteries instead of the most popular 18650 batteries.
You can use your old 18650 batteries in this mod though with the use of a sleeve!
If you buy the kit, you get the Gnome tank which is a 25mm x 45mm sub ohm tank. It comes with a proprietary 8mm Wide Bore Drip Tip and a Delrin Drip Tip. The tank is a top fill unit, with dual air flow control. The 2 coils that come with the unit are a dual coil 0.15 ohm and a triple coil 0.2 ohm. They do offer more coils but these are the standard ones you’ll find in the kit.
The tank although small is actually quite impressive. Although we love RDA’s, for a standard tank this thing really performs, which brings us to the overall performance!
As we said we were really impressed with the Gnome tank and paired with the Wismec Reuleaux RX2 20700 produces some really good flavor as well as some serious clouds! Love the 510 drip tips and the slight resistance in the air flow.
The mod is really easy to use, changing the controls and locking them in, if you need to, as well as looking really good! Firing the device is really easy thanks to the oversized firing button, the mod fits perfectly in your hand and a sure contender of best e-cigarette in its class.
So was it all great vaping the Wismec Reuleaux RX2 20700? Well no, not really, there were a couple of bad points we found:
Although these are negatives, you really don’t go into the menu on a daily basis and if you did you would probably get used to it, hence my problem!
We were actually really happy with the Wismec Reuleaux RX2, considering it’s a dual 20700 battery mod, it’s really not that big and the performance is just awesome, especially with the Gnome tank that comes with the kit. Granted it’s not the best e-cigarette to quit smoking with but if your looking for a new mod and fancy trying something new, then the Wismec Reuleaux RX2 20700 should definitely be considered.
