One of the newer box mods on the scene is the Sigelei Fuchai 213W TC. This new box mod is much different than the Sigeleis we’ve seen in the past. This one has a new design and more power along with temperature control (but that is industry-regulated now, so all mods will have it).
The Sigelei is actually one of the more expensive on the market. Prices range from around $90 all the way up to around $120. The price is based on Sigelei’s past performance; they do have a reputation for quality and are banking on that. I know that some markets are offering bundles, so you may get more for that higher price.
Sigelei’s box mods used to be huge and bulky, but the new 213W is just 5.5 cubic inches. It’s a rounded rectangle of a box with slightly bulging sides; fits easily in the hand.
This new mod has a light aluminum frame covered in gun metal gray zinc alloy and black carbon fiber. You can purchase it in this gray and black, or go for the gold (there’s a gold zinc alloy option). It may not be ‘gorgeous’ but it does look and feel durable.
The Sigelei may be compact, but it weighs almost 8 ounces with the batteries. This is a typical weight for this type of mod.
As for the display, you can find it and the adjustment buttons right on the front with the firing button and USB port on the end. The display screen is very bright and very clear, with white characters on a black background (making it easy to read). The display will tell you the battery charge and amperage and there’s a graphic to represent your remaining battery strength.
The chip in the Sigelei 213W offers temperature control settings for all major wire types, along with five user-adjustable TCR and TFR values. The Sigelei 213 even implements a ‘Preheat’ option which allows you to program for different power settings at chosen increments of time. This helps remove the uncertainty factor.
Their chip also allows you to read or display the atomizer resistance and lock the resistance in order to ensure accuracy in TC mode. And let’s say you actually mess with the chip and screw up the settings; you can actually restore it to default factory settings.
Overall, the Sigelei 213W TC performs well. It has no misfires or delays; aside from the price, this is a powerful mod worth a try!
