Battery

Packing a massive 4400mAh battery, the iStick is going to last anywhere from a day to even a week depending on how often you vape. You’ll hardly be able to find another box mod that’s going to last this long. The charger that comes in the box is going to take about five hours to give it a full charge. However, the fun’s not over when it empties. The device has a passthrough charging function – you can use it even when it’s plugged in.

It has numerous safety features, including short circuit and low voltage protection, combined with the automated switch off. If the device goes over 70 degrees Celsius, it’s going to turn off automatically and go into a temperature protection mode due to its integrated alarm.

One con of this battery is that it’s built-in. You can’t simply switch it out once it’s empty, which means that you’ll be stuck to the power outlet until it recharges. Also, if it goes faulty, replacing it is an extremely complicated process.

Tank Variety

iStick 50W Box Mod is highly customizable and supports an ample amount of atomizers. The wide resistance range combined with the 510 threading and eGo adapter means that a big number of tanks and atomizers is going to fit completely flush.

The connector is spring-loaded and leaves no free space between the tank and the mod. Of course, you’ll need to purchase or use an existing tank of your own, since it doesn’t come with one in the package.

Performance

50W of power is going to bring out the most out of any tank that you put to use. Even though many users are not going to go that high, it’s nice knowing that you have that big of a range. Anything above 40W is going to leave a burnt taste with many atomizers.

Switching between voltage and wattage option is easy – just press the main chrome button three times in succession. The two side buttons are used to increase or decrease the selected option. If you’re a cloud chaser, it’s not going to leave you wishing for anything else.
