Reviewing The Sigelei Snow Wolf 218W TC MOD
Just when you get to the point where you think that manufacturers have pushed the envelope just about as far as it can go, someone comes along with a product that puts those assumptions to the test.If there is one thing that we can say about vaping technology, it is that it certainly never rests on its laurels. For example, the accepted belief throughout much of the vaping community has long been that only the most serious hobbyists and cloud-chasers would ever need to – or in some cases be able to – gain access to mods with 200 watts.
Sigelei is set to change that paradigm with its new Snow Wolf mod. Most casual vapers simply never felt the need to achieve that goal, so most manufacturers never bothered to provide the technology in a way that they could access it. In this review, we will examine the Sigelei Snow Wolf 218W TC MOD in an attempt to determine whether the product was worth the company’s efforts.
The appearance might throw you off when you first see the Sigelei Snow Wolf 218W. After all, most of us are used to seeing those solid stainless steel designs, with varying levels of engraving, shaping, and feature placement to distinguish them from one another. The Snow Wolf offers something even better – the inclusion of specially treated wood panels with gorgeous colors and designs that can be changed by the user. That allows you to customize the device’s appearance without altering its basic shape or features.
More than that, however, it provides a level of uniqueness that is unmatched in the vaping industry. Because each panel is a unique creation – crafted by the American-based Global Vaping, no two Snow Wolfs will ever be alike. That means that, no matter where on Earth you take this device, yours will be unlike any other on the planet.
All the power needed to achieve those high wattage levels come courtesy of an advanced chipset and three 18650 batteries that work in unison to make this a real workhorse of a mod. Together, that chipset and battery trio manage power for everything from the 218 wattage to temperature control. The batteries are protected by a battery door that is latched to ensure that the power source remains secure. The placement of the batteries clearly helped to keep this product from becoming just another box-shaped mod, and instead inform its more well-shaped and ergonomic design.
The first thing that might catch your eye is the 218 watt claim in the product’s name. If you’ve ever wondered whether you could actually vape at that wattage level, now you know. In tests, the Sigelei Snow Wolf 218W does indeed reach that 218 watt mark, effortlessly. Of course, you don’t have to vape at that level, since you can also choose to switch to temperature control mode and use various coils made from nickel, titanium, or stainless steel to change the sensitivities and achieve different levels of resistances. In other words, this is an extremely flexible device that should be able to meet most needs.
The device interface is right on the front, where you would expect it to be, and includes three buttons that control its functions. Once controls power settings, another takes care of the wattage and heat capacity, while the third lowers temperature and watts. It’s clear, basic, and intuitively simple.
Power output can range from as low as 10 watts all the way up to that maximum 218 watts, with voltage ranging from one to eight volts. All that power comes from the three batteries, which naturally result in the device being a little larger and heavier than most people might anticipate. However, that extra weight is something that you can quickly grow to love as the product just feels more solid than many of its competitors.
Control is really the key here. All that power enables the chipset to provide the type of control advanced vapers love in a way that even less-experienced newcomers can use to their advantage. You can achieve temperatures ranging from 200 degrees Fahrenheit to 570 degrees Fahrenheit, which is a range wide enough to provide users with almost any individualized setting they need.
