Have you been thinking whether or not to get the new Wismec Reuleaux RX2/3 mod?

If you don’t own one, it’s critical that you listen to me right now. Stop all that wondering and doubting and go get yourself one ASAP!

You are honestly missing out on a very enjoyable and affordable mod as every second fleets by without this in your hand!

This is my most used and favorite mod at this moment. I’m already excited about telling you how the Reuleaux RX2/3 mod won me over completely.

GearBest is selling the RX 2/3 for a great price right now.

How I got the Reuleaux RX2/3 mod

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on another Reuleaux because I loved the RX200 so much.Luckily I was fortunate enough to be given this mod for free to review!

My friends at GearBest reached out to me and asked if I wanted to test this mighty fine piece of vape machinery.

I agreed to use this new Wismec-Jay Bo collaboration mod and give my opinion on it.

What did they do this time?

We all saw the evolution of the Reuleaux. The initial RX200 was a solid triple 18650 mod. This was followed up by the RX200S. The screen and interface had major updates but the design and features were identical to the RX200.

The major renovation for the RX2/3 mod this time is the design. Same screen and interface with the RX2/3, but now you can use either 2 or 3 18650 batteries thanks to a special back cover.

Got this mod pretty quick from GearBest

This product came pretty quick from GearBest. I got it within a week of them contacting me about the review. Pretty fast if you ask me considering it was shipped from China.

Contents that were in the box was the new featured dual 18650 back cover, the user manual and a USB chord that are all in the picture below.

What’s in the box: battery back cover for dual 18650 mode, user manual and USB cord.

I love the new dual 18650 battery mode!

The dual 18650 mode makes the Reuleaux RX 2/3 feel like a totally different mod. It’s a lot more light, comfortable, and ergonomic in my hand whenever I use it in dual 18650 mode.

The new back cover surprisingly slims down the mod to a size you wouldn’t think was possible and turns it into a sleek but powerful vape mod, 150 watts without firmware upgrade.

The dual 18650 mode makes the Reuleax a nice portable mod that I tug along with me when I’m outdoors.

The RX2/3 mod has a solid build as well; no rattles at all whenever I shake it.

Some other new features of the RX2/3 mod

While the 2 previous Reuleaux used magnetic locks for the battery cover, the RX2/3 uses a new release button located underneath the mod. The button doesn’t make any contact when you let the mod stand up straight.

The back cover on the previous Reuleaux mods were easier for me to work with but this new back cover isn’t hard to use at all. Now you have to push in the back cover until it locks, a little more complicated compared to just snapping on the back cover like in the previous models.

No more magnet locks. Back cover is held in by switch which is located underneath the mod.

The RX2/3 mod is easy to use

I really like how easy it is using the RX2/3 mod. It didn’t take long for me to learn how to navigate through the menu and know all the functions. And I’m a pretty average guy so don’t think it takes a genius to learn how to use this thing.

The screen is big and bright just like the RX200S mod and it stayed on for a good 36 seconds before the screen went idle when I tried counting it. This gives you lots of time to check your wattage and mode after a vape.

Lots of colors to choose from and customizeable!

The RX 2/3 mod has 6 finishes for you to choose from. There’s Silver/Gray, flat Black, Cyan/Grey, Red/Black, Gold and Matte White.

The front plates can be removed as well and be replaced with other RX 2/3 front and back plates which gives you the option to change colors to give your mod a different vibe.

Does it have any cons?

With so many great things about the RX2/3 mod, does it have any cons?

In my case, it had to be the back cover in terms of fitting it in. It isn’t hard to use but at the same time it isn’t as easy to use either compared to the previous Reuleaux mods. I know Wismec might’ve had to make that change because of the special back covers, but the magnet locks for me was something that was not broken.

Another thing that wasn’t really a con for me but I could see some people complaining about it so I decided to include it. As you can see in the picture below the front and back plates don’t fit perfectly flush to the frame.

Front and back plates are fully changeable so you can swap out different color of plates for a different look.

I dropped this mod once pretty bad, so I’m not sure if that’s what caused it to not fit flush or if it’s really just made like that. I’m sure its fixable if I take it apart but wouldn’t want to go through the hassle. I don’t really mind the gaps.

That was all I could really think of when it came to cons for this mod. But all in all, the RX2/3 mod is a well built and beautifully designed mod with an easy interface, all the new features, and currently a mod in it’s own league with the dual or triple battery housing option.

The Reuleaux RX2/3 is currently available at a crazy low price at GearBest. Click on the buy button below!
