Wismec Reuleaux Tinker 2 with Trough Tank Preview
Wismec is back with a new version of the Reuleaux Tinker, a box mod inspired by the old Air Jordan sneakers. The Wismec Reuleaux Tinker 2 keeps the aesthetics of the previous version, but this time they made it smaller, as the original was a heavy and bulky three-battery box mod. But this is not the only change you will see from the new version. In this post we will explain all the new innovations in the Reuleaux Tinker 2.
Unboxing the Wismec Reuleaux Tinker 2
The Wismec Reuleaux Tinker 2 kit comes in a large rectangular black packaging and it includes the Tinker 2 mod, a dual 0.2 ohm coil head, 2 warning cards, the trough tank with a pre-installed coil and a user manual.
Colors: titanium grey, blue & purple, black and red.
Price for the full kit: $64
Mod only: $50
Build Quality and Design of the Tinker 2
The new Wismec Reuleaux Tinker 2 measures 90mm by 53.5mm by 28.5 mm so it is slightly smaller than the previous version but also a bit taller. Made primarily from zinc alloy, the Tinker 2 mod is powered by dual 18650 batteries and it is able to reach a maximum output power of 200W. That is less battery and power than the previous version. But you need to sacrifice something when you come up with a smaller version, don’t you?
The Tinker 2 keeps many similarities in appearance with the previous version. Starting at the top, we have a classic 510 connection featuring a spring-loaded, 510 pin. The Tinker 2 mod allows you to screw atomizers up to 28.5 mm in diameter without any overhang.
The control panel under the 510 connection consists of a trigger-like fire button which appears to be identical to the previous version and it features a texture similar to the sole of a sports shoe.
Right under the color screen, we find the typical buttons for increasing and decreasing the wattage, and the USB port. On the other side of the mod, Wismec added a crocodile-like leather with glossy texture for better grip and feeling in hands. Good adding!
The mod is monitored by an Avatar chip which provides instant fire at a speed of 0.001 seconds and the latest safety features. The mod has a 0.96 inch color screen. As usual, Wismec included a very intuitive and user friendly interface. But the biggest innovation is yet to come… Wismec made this mod shock, dust and water proof!
The Trough Tank and the Coils
Wismec paired this mod in a full kit with the Trough Tank, which matches the 4 existing colors for the mod. The Trough is a stubby sub-ohm tank with 30 mm in diameter. It can fit 6.5 ml of e-liquid, although it is also available in a 2 ml TPD in Europe. The Trough Tank features a quick sliding top filling design and large adjustable airflow. When fully open, the airflow covers around 50% of the base of the atomizer. This large airflow slot is thought for blowing big clouds when fully open.
There are 3 types of coils for this tank: single 0.35 ohm (30-50W), dual 0.2 ohm (30-70W) and triple 0.15 ohm (50-90W). Only the first 2 coils are included. All these coil feature a diamond-shaped mesh coil to make the heating surface more uniform. The wicking inside coil has a new formula consisting in 30% wood pulp and 70% organic cotton. According to Wismec, this combination gives e-liquid “extra permeability and more uniform flavor.”
Wismec tried to improve the previous original version of the Tinker, and they did it right. They came up with a compact mod equipped with the latest innovations. The most remarkable improvement for us is the dust, shock and water proof design. Adding this to any mod is always a big plus, especially if you tend to take your mod out.
The Trough Tank also has some promising points. Mesh coils are here to stay and it is not random that most brands are now using mesh coils. Wismec joined the mesh coil trend with this tank.
All in all, the Wismec Reuleaux Tinker 2 kit is a consistent mesh coil starter kit. It definitely improves the first version. What are your first thought about this new kit by Wismec? Please let us know in the comments down below!
