    Hi, i've been happily using my AL85 daily and would like to hear recommendation on compact box mods similar to AL85.

    I use power mode all the time at 50-60W of sub-ohm RTA, looking for a single battery mod of similar appealing look of my current mod. I know that Smok AL85 TC doesn't work, so a box with better chip would be most welcomed.

    Cheers

    There's the Pico 25. Unlike the original Pico, this one accommodates 25 mm tanks.Looks pretty much like an AL85, who's design was pretty close to the original Pico anyway. Wattage of 50-60W all the time will sure drain that battery down in no time. Any thoughts on maybe a dual battery mod?

    There's Wismec's Sinuous P80 and Joyetech's Primo Mini. There's also the Jac Vapour Series B DNA 75w:
    JAC Vapour Series-B DNA 75w

    They're all single battery mods that do a decent or better job of TC. However, I do think @Eskie has a point about using single battery mods at that power level. At 50 - 60w you'll either be at the limits of what your battery can provide, thus draining it pretty quickly, or you'll be using a lower-capacity battery. Then again, battery life may not be your priority. As long as it suits you.

    There are a few "smallish" dual battery mods that use either the DNA60, DNA75 or 75C chip. The HCigar VT75D looks interesting but if it were me i would be looking at higher watt options if i was vaping at 50-60watts. Using near max watts from a mod does not appeal to me.

    None of them are very compact though except maybe the Lost Vape Esquare60. Maybe a 2x700 DNA75C mod if there is such a thing would give you slightly better battery life than a single 18650 device.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, will definitely check them up. I'm still leaning towards single battery mods due to the form factor for now, at least until GBox 200W squonker is readily available on the market.

    Not a single battery mod, but I just ordered and eleaf Invoke. Looks tiny for a dual 18650 and not that much bigger than a Pico considering. I was shopping for a single 18650 as well (love my original Pico), but decided to try this as it looks so compact.

    Also....ordered a Vaporesso Swag. That's worth a look for a single 18650 mod.

    I own a Pico 25 as well...not a fan. It's probably the cheapest feeling mod I've held in hand. It works fine, though.

    Hard to beat the Series-B for size, cost and performance. They are insanely cheap for a DNA75 when on sale and still reasonably priced when not. Probably wont get much run time though at 60watts on a single cell.
