The Wismec SINUOUS V80 Starter Kit is a fantastic device for smokers looking to give up cigarettes for a healthier alternative or new vapers. The ease of use, compact size, and relatively low asking price make for a near-perfect starter kit. Wismec has been around for yonks and can boast over 100 products in their back catalog. Wismec has amassed a great name for itself in the vaping industry. This has been achieved by hiring talented designers, engineers and also good salesman.
The Wismec Sinuous V80 is a super small device, measuring just 88.8mm by 53.2mm by 25mm. Powered by a single 18650 rechargeable battery, the Sinuous V80 can output a respectable 80 watts. This is made possible by the well known Avatar Chipset. While it may be slightly old, it can still hold its own to most of the chips on the market today! The turn-on time and fire rate is fantastic and can be comparable to the Wismec Sinuous V200.
The chassis is made from a lightweight zinc alloy. It feels stealthy in hand and very ergonomic. The hinged bottom battery door is a bit flimsy, but you get what you pay for. The firing button has a nice click to it and the two adjustment buttons make it easy to access the menu. The OLED screen is 0.91″ and has a slight off-color tinge to it. Located on the front face is a micro USB port, though we recommend charging your batteries externally.
The tank feels as if it’s a throwaway. The PETG construction looks and feels very average and doesn’t really match the mod’s color. With a diameter of 26mm’s, the Amor NSE sub-ohm tank can hold 2ml of ejuice or 3ml with the upgraded Pyrex glass. Filling is super easy because the tank utilizes a convenient slide top cap. My biggest gripe is with the bottom airflow control. It’s super stiff, cheaply made and also only one-sided.
The flavor is pretty good when using the 1.3ohm MTL coil, but not so great with the 0.27ohm mesh coil. Not sure why this is, mesh usually tastes great, regardless of brand. It could have something to do with weird mesh pattern or perhaps I just had a dud coil. Either way, you can still choose to use an alternative tank than what is provided if it doesn’t meet your expectations.
So the cheapest price I could find online was $39.95 USD. I think this is a great price for a starter kit. But taking into consideration that the max wattage output is only 80, then perhaps they could have made it slightly cheaper to compete with pod devices.
I personally didn’t like the see-through look of this device, but I know lots of people who do. The physical appearance of a product is very subjective. I’ve read and watched many reviews praising the aesthetic.
The Wismec Sinuous V80 Starter Kit is available in green, red, black and also yellow. The packaging has a premium feel to it, featuring a really nice photo of the device on the front face. Inside you will find your mod, tank, 2 x coils, micro USB cable, user manual and also some miscellaneous spare parts.
