Cigstar Greek Temple Box Mod Introduction 

So, this is a tough one. I cannot find any information on the internet regarding Cigstar, let alone the Cigstar Greek Temple, so therefore I cannot give any background information on Cigstar itself. The box mod itself is a 230w max, dual 18650 device powered by a V80 chipset, with a colourful 1.3″ HD screen that is surrounded by an 8-colour LED bezel.

The Greek Temple is available in one colour which is a gun metal finish, but with two different styles of grip. One being snake skin, the other being a black carbon fiber. Today we will be looking at the device that has the snake skin grip.

Cigstar Greek Temple First Impressions:

So let’s have a look around the Greek Temple, starting from the top and working our way down…

At the top of the device we have the 510 connector which has a stainless steel surround and a spring loaded positive pin. It is offset to the left hand side, but you can still fit 30mm atomisers on here with no overhang whatsoever!

Working our way down to the front of the device, we have an square 1.3″ HD colour screen surrounded by the LED bezel.

You can change this to eight different colours including – Red, Green, Blue as well as a fading spectrum.

But if LED bezels aren’t your thing, you also have the option to turn it off. Below the screen we also have the Cigstar branding as well as the + & – buttons.

On the left hand side of the Greek Temple we have the firing button. This is more or less flush with the device but it definitely has a nice clicky feel to it.

On the right hand side we have the Micro USB charge port.

At the base of the device we have the battery door that has gold contacts and the polarity clearly marked.

The door is very loose though, I don’t think that it will ever come off, but it just seems to have a lot of movement in it when open. It also has a rather nasty gap when the batteries are inserted.

As for the screen and menu system, they are extremely easy to navigate through. Clicking the fire button 3 times brings up the menu screen where you can change what firing mode you are in, what LED colours you want as well as resetting the device.

Cigstar Greek Temple Performance:

Wattage Mode:

In Wattage Mode, you can go anywhere from 10w all the way up to 230w in 0.1w increments, but this can be sped up by holding down the – or + button.

Throughout the wattage range, the Greek Temple has performed pretty well. I have absolutely no complaints whatsoever regarding how the board works. Although I do doubt that it will be hitting a true 230w. But I’m not a high wattage vaper, so it is not a massive issue for me.

Temperature Control Mode:

After testing the preset SS316 mode on this device using a 0.53Ω single spaced coil, I can confirm that it works perfectly in a dry cotton burn test all the way up to 315°C – No burnt cotton whatsoever! Nice one!

Cigstar Greek Temple Final Thoughts:

Overall, I love the performance of the Cigstar Greek Temple, but its the looks that don’t do it for me. It has little to no resemblance of a temple besides the little temple at the bottom on the front of the device. And where do LED’s and snake skin/carbon fiber come into Greek temples? THEY DONT!

This mod would be absolutely perfect in a different enclosure, without the LED’s. It looks horrible, it feels horrible and it needs some little issues sorted.

Hi, my name is Dean and I have been vaping since April 2014. I decided to start reviewing back in mid 2015 as my friends kept asking me about different e-liquids I had tried and whether they were worth buying. So I thought I’d start on Instagram writing written reviews for them to read. Then several months later, I saw that people were publishing reviews on YouTube, so in late 2015 ‘TheDevilVaper’ was born! And since then, I have built a following across social media and I’m reviewing anything from starter kits to mech mods. Budget e-liquids to premium flavours and prebuilt coils to carry cases. To me, vaping is more than just a way to quit smoking. It is now a hobby. And a hobby that I have great pleasure in doing! And if my reviews help people ditch the cigarettes, then it’s a job well done.
