Sigelei Top 1 Mod Review Bottom Line
The Sigelei Top 1 certainly looks the part, with the dial like design that is going to get the car enthusiasts excited. But this dual 18650 230W mod just lack the new features we were hoping to see. That said Sigelei have improved the chipset to not only suit the design of this mod but also increase the responsiveness. Overall, not a bad mod, but a little style over substance!
So, Sigelei has released a new box mod named the Top 1, with a futuristic look that many are just going to love. We take a close look at the features and performance of this mod to see how good it is and determine if it’s one of the best vape mods or one to avoid like the plague. So let’s get on with our review.
Car’s are the theme with the Sigelei Top 1 box mod, with its cool looking rev counter or speedometer that actually shows the wattage and the huge Sigelei badge on the back it really does look like a sophisticated bit of kit.
The black mixed with carbon fiber look complete the design giving the aesthetics a real boost. The huge TFT color display measures in at 1.3” and shows all the information you need like wattage, resistance, and battery life, with additional info like time mode and a lock indicator. The screen is just dominated by this huge dial though, but you can adjust the screen to suit your needs within the menu. Not sure the design is going to be loved by all.
The Sigelei Top 1 has the huge fire button to the side, which is well placed when holding in your hand, and there are two additional buttons below the screen to adjust wattage and the menu settings.
This is a dual 18650 battery mod that has the capability of reaching a wattage up to 230W, it is relatively cheap at around $60-$65, but check our vape deals page out like this and many other mods often find there way into the sale! To enter the menu section you click the fire button 3 times, here you can adjust your mode between temperature control or wattage, your display settings, all using a newly enhanced chipset that Sigelei haven’t used before. They claim it is more stable and the output is instant in comparison to other mods on the market.
Just putting a matching colored tank on this mod really sets it off! So far really impressed with the design, let’s see how it vapes!
Let’s start with a 0.2-ohm coil at 50W to see how the lower levels perform. The mod has 3 different wattage mods so let’s try each!
User mode and normal mode are pretty much the same, we really can’t tell much difference, but when you switch it to hard mode… wow! The mod is so responsive, it’s like you instantly get the wattage without any wait whatsoever! Bet you can perform some pretty cool vape tricks with this mod!
In temperature control mode via the settings and changing the tank. The performance is as we hoped and the new chipset it performing overall very nicely indeed.
The Sigelei Top 1 box mod with the lovely aesthetics that would be right at home in an upmarket sports car is lovely to see. We love it when manufacturers take pride in their work and Sigelei obviously has here. Can we see it as one of the best vape products in its class, well no, not really. It has an appeal but only to a certain vaper and the lack of any original settings or features just let it down a little.
That said, to suit this new design they had to design a new chipset, that’s not only functional but really responsive and will more than likely please most vapers.
The only negative is that it’s a shame they didn’t release a starter kit with this mod, it would have been nice to have a matching tank.
