French Touch design
Designed by the French Vaponaute and build in China by Wismec, the manufacturer of the famous Reuleaux, la Petite Box delivers 80 W while it only has one 18 650 Battery (not included). With 45.2 mm width and 24.6 mm depth, the electronic box had an excellent usability. Its length is just under 8 cm (79 mm). The notch cut at the place of the 510 pin reinforces the sensation of compactness.
The downside of this line is, like the Pico by Eleaf, an incompatibility with atomizers larger than 23 mm. The 18 650 battery finds its place in a slot accessible via a cap located under the box. The box is rather heavy with 145 g, 25 g heavier than the eVic VTwo Mini by Joyetech and 38 g heavier than the Aster by Eleaf.
In the spirit of Vaponaute, its design finds its origins in the aeronautical industry and reminds of certain radiator grills on old american cars. The Fire switch is circular, located on the front with the OLED screen that displays all necessary information: Mode, Temp, Power, Resistance, Battery charge, Puff number, Vaping time or voltage. All is adjustable with the + and – controls located under the micro USB slot.
