Product Review: Wismec Reuleaux RX2/3 Mod From GearBest

The Wismec Reuleaux RX2/3 by Jay Bo Designs. This item in review was given to me by GearBest

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.

Here’s the RX 2/3 in the new and sexy dual 18650 mode. This reduces the size of the mod greatly!

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!

Awesome Mods In 2016 That Are Under $50

You don't need to spend more than $50 for these great mods!
You don’t need to spend more than $50 for these great mods!

Now that the FDA has the authority to approve new vape products being marketed here in the U.S., we won’t be sure when the next time a new mod will come out. We are in Limbo right now with whatever vape products that are currently out here in America.

Fortunately, 2016 was a great year for vape mods. There were quite a number of products that were put out this year that offered great vape quality at an affordable price.

Which brings me to my post for today, best vape mods under $50 in 2016.

4. Mini Volt 40W

2016 will be remembered as a year where compact, mini mods were the craze, and the Mini Volt might be considered as the most popular mini mod in it’s class.

Vapers love how well-built it is. For such a small mod, you get lots of power out of it. Though 40 watts may not sound like a lot, many vapers who vape at the 25 watt – 40 watt range love this mod regardless.

It’s design is definitely a looker. The carbon fiber print and matte paint if a great combination. The Mini Volt version now comes with speed charging (takes approximately 1 hour to fully charge), has a battery saving mode and can now flip the display to where you can either use your index finger or thumb to fire.

Probably the only con on this mod is there is no temperature control, this is probably because it only vapes at 40 watts max, which isn’t too hot of a vape. This is for vapers who just want something they can vape on while on the go.

A small package with big features, the Mini Volt continues to be the go to mod of compact mod fans. A nice, portable, and a reliable little mod that you can take with you anywhere. The best part is it’s priced under $50!

3. iPower 80W TC 5000

The next inexpensive mod on the list is the iPower 80 watt 5000 mAh box mod. Now Eleaf is a reputable vape mod manufacturer, so the efficiency of this mod isn’t really in question.

What is impressive about this mod is it has an internal battery capacity of 5000 mAh, lots of battery life to get you through the whole day.

And another great thing about this mod is you won’t need to buy batteries. 5000 mAh is about 2 18650 batteries put together. No need to bring with you an extra pair of batteries when you have this with you.

Another great thing about the iPower is it comes in many color, and also comes in a wood design finish. Not many other mods have that.

What you probably like the most about the iPower is you get temperature control, 80 watts of power, long battery and all this will cost you under $50!

2. iStick Pico 75W

If you came across a person who loved mini mods, they would either have the Mini Volt, or the iStick Pico 75 watt mod in their collection.

This is also a fave among mini mod enthusiasts. One of the points it has above the Mini Volt is that it houses a single 18650 battery, giving it more battery life compared to the Volt.

It also has higher wattage capacity, 75 compared to 40 watts. The minimalist design and up and down wattage buttons below have some people preferring the Pico over the Volt.

And the great thing about this is it comes as a kit! it comes with the Melo Mini Sub-Ohm tank, and it’s all priced under $50!

1. Reuleaux RX200S 200W

Right now, the Reuleaux RX200S 200W box mod is priced right under $50 at Vapor DNA. If you don’t know about this mod or don’t have one, I suggest you pick one up right now as every serious vaper I know already has this in their inventory.

To give a brief summary, it’s a mod that has all the new features, compatible with all types of builds, and houses 3 18650 batteries. Oh, and it also goes up to 200 watts.

So that’s features, power, and battery life your getting all under $50! Add to that the slick, ergonomic design that vapers love.

So there it is, some mods that give you a lot for under $50. No need to break the bank on these lovelies. These mods will surely up your vaping experience without leaving a strain in your pocket!

Best Triple 18650 Mods Of 2016

These mods will last you a long time!
These mods last you a long time!

Imagine this scenario, you’re vaping on some really good e-juice. Flavor is on point and so is the vapor. So you keep vaping and vaping, nothing could be more perfect in the world.

As you go for another hit of this heavenly e-juice you’re vaping on, you suddenly realize you’ve inhaled nothing but air.

“Hey, wait a minute,” you say to yourself. You press your fire button again and go for a vape, nothing comes out.

You check your mod to see what’s wrong and there you read two words that shatter your world.

“Low battery.”

Aside from dry hits and running out of e-juice, my mod’s battery dying out on me is probably the most annoying thing that could happen to me. Nothing kills my vibe more than having a dead mod without a charger or power outlet in sight.

I’m sure some of you out there have experienced this situation before. Nowadays, we have tanks, coils and drippers that able to put out more vapor and flavor, but the trade off is these new upgrades ask for more battery power.

You might have noticed this if you recently bought one of these newer tanks and used it on an older mod.

If you find your mod dying on you more than often, you can do two things. First, you can reduce how often you vape (who wants to do that?), or you can buy one of these newer triple 18650 battery mods I will list below.

Why you should consider buying a triple 18650 battery mod

Like I said earlier, a lot of these super sub-ohm tanks coming out on the market require more battery power from their mods. With the newer mods going higher than 200 watts, the trade off is it will use more battery.

And with innovations like Clapton coils, Notch coils and ceramic coils, you will be needing more battery life as well. Sure, you can stick to Kanthal wire to save on battery life, but you will be missing out on chucking big vapor and getting your tongue hit with flavor haymakers.

So if you are ready to make an upgrade to a triple 18650 battery mod, then you might want to consider the following mods listed below.

The Reuleaux RX200 has become one of the most used and most talked about triple 18650 mods out on the market now.

The RX200S which is basically the second version of the Reuleaux has all the same features of the first one, but with a much improved screen. It’s still compatible with all types of coil builds, has all the new features expected in a high end mod. It has its signature sturdy and unique design in comes in multiple colors. The USB port is used both for firmware updates and for charging. All of this for a very affordable price.

This is a great mod for those who need more power for their vape. It still stands as one of, if not the best mod you can get for it’s price.

The Council of Vapor Tempest Triple 18650 200W TC Box Mod

Another powerful triple 18650 mod that has reviewers going crazy is the Tempest Triple 18650 box mod. It is bigger than your usual device, but the contours on this device make it fit easy in the hand.

It comes in black and white/black, with a carbon fiber inlay on one side. It’s big size makes it look good with 22, 24, and 30mm RDA’s or tanks.

The battery holder slides down from the bottom with a release button, which might be a plus for those of you who hate using magnet locked battery plates.

A little higher on the price list, the Tempest is still a great looking triple 18650 battery mod which will last you a long time.

Lost Vape Triade Triple 18650 DNA 200 Box Mod
The Lost Vape Triade Triple 18650 DNA 200 Box Mod

For all you DNA 200 lovers out there, the Triade Triple 18650 box mod is the way to go. Using the ever reliable Evolv DNA chip, the Triade is probably the most high end mod on this list.

And nothing screams more high end than the leather covered battery plate that holds in all that power. The gold plated contacts gives you maximum output, but this mod is only compatible with fat top 18650’s so make sure you get the right ones.

If you love DNA mods, but been having trouble with your DNA mod’s battery life, then the Triade should be the answer to your problem.

Topping off the list is the iStick 200W TC triple 18650 box mod. Eleaf has been releasing different versions of it’s ever popular iStick, and this is the latest edition to it’s family.

One great thing iStick fans love is the price. This mod comes is being sold right under the $50 mark. This mod comes in three finishes: white, black and silver. It comes with all the newest features and is compatible with all types of builds both basic and advanced.

What separates the iStick 200W from the other mods from the list aside from it’s price is it’s center firing button. It also comes with 4 buttons which makes using it a little easier.

If your money is a little short, then your best option for a triple 18650 battery mod would be the iStick 200W mod.

Triple 18650 battery mods have become the new norm in vaping coinciding with the need for more vapor and flavor in tanks and RDA’s. Buying one of these mods will not only give you more vaping power, but improve your vaping experience all together.
