    So Sigelei has come out with a VV/VW box mod with CHANGEABLE batteries (16350 according to the vendor website). ********'s said something a bit different, but I wonder if it really matters that much? http://********.blogspot.com/2013/02/rollout-sigelei-tmax-box-mod.html

    Personally, I'm attracted. The metal body appeals a lot. And while there is a question about the battery type...I don't think it's a deal breaker for the average vaper who doesn't require super low resistance. Supposed to have the Zmax chip in it.

    Thoughts?

    Looks like it could fill a niche. I'm not impressed with the other box mods offering vv or vv/vw except for the Ovale V8. Since the Ovale I have is Segelei made, I'll be following this one closely as they seem to get more things right than wrong when it comes to manufacturing APV's.

    If given the option, I'd prefer using a 18650 imr battery. I already have 3 other mods that use that battery. I'm looking forward to seeing a PBusardo review on this and seeing what the price point will be.

    Look, like the look of this. I'm also looking forward to a video review or two.

    I ordered one, the battery configuration seems to be in dispute. The vendor said they spoke with the MFG, but all the info I can find on the web is different. When its in my hands I will try to review it.

    I noticed that too...EVERYwhere seems to say the batteries can be 18650 or 2x18350s. So it is confusing. But I pulled the trigger too and preordered one. Often things can get lost in translation...even talking with a mfr. on the phone...in China, especially. We shall see! Even if it turns out that it really does take only 16340s...oh well! Still a cool looking mod with cool features! At least I hope so!

    Looks like they're making some design changes. At the time of the pre-order it was only designed to take an 18350, and their marketing materials were just wrong, as confirmed with Sigelei reps.

    Due to a major uproar over their mod being crap, it looks like they've gone back to the drawing board with it.

    Just ordered one from exhale. The site says it takes an 18350 and an 18650 AND that the 18350 space can be used to store a cartomizer. It looks like separate compartments. Basically, whiskey tango foxtrot :)

    it has 2 battery compartments, you can put an 18650 in one, an 18350 in the other. If you have both batteries loaded and one dies you switch the cap to the other and continue vaping.

    So, one cap is able to complete the circuit, while the other has no coil? Is that what you mean by switching caps?

    That was my understanding of how it works.
