    The Ipv 6x (if you get the one with the v1.5 firmware) or the Smok Alien would definitely be preferable. The 213 is a faulty device and Sigelei a scum company.

    I agree on the battery life, I have the orginal 213, IPV400, IPV6X and the smok Alien, and the sig 213 has the best battery life out of all them.

    I don't use mine, because it also misfires, which is really annoying for me, but have got the fuchai 213 coming, which doesn't have the misfire problem, and choose to get it, because of the battery life you get with it.

    FYI: I only use wattage mode :)

    If you only use it in power mode it's a perfectly good mod. The Fuchai, that is. From what I can tell the actual Sigelei 213 has a few problems, such as misfires and garbled screens, that the Fuchai doesn't.

    .. wait I thought the Sig 213 & Fuchai 213 were same? the Fuchai 213 is newer version?

    edit: I am watching some YT reviews on S 213 & F 213 .. NOPE, do not want. I'll look at the iPV 6x

    Sigelei 213: We know all about its inaccurate temp control..

    Fuchai 213: It's no better than the Sigelei 213, except its build quality and 510 are of lesser quality..

    IPV6X: If you can get your hands on the latest versions with the 1.5 firmware, then you've got a good all around package, including adjustable TCR for TC. Ver 1.3 has inaccurate TC. Ver 1.2 has more issues and is being factory recalled.

    IPV400: A good all around package. From what I gather, from reviews, it offers decent TC; however, I have not yet tried its TC. Note: It doesn't have reverse battery protection.

    IPV8: Nobody knows yet.. it's not out yet.

    Minikin V2: Awesome mod. Less than stellar TC; however, last I heard Daniel DJLsb was helping Asmodus in hopes of fixing in a firmware update.

    I have the Sigelei 213, IPV6X (Ver 1.3), IPV400 and Minikin V2, and I use them daily. I'm a sucker for compact dual 18650 devices, and my shinyitis is killing me.

    I just got my Fuchai 213 today. It has v 1.1 firmware.

    I bought this to replace my VTC-Mini. I really just wanted something that had a compact size and 2x 18650 bat's. I vape VW mode at 50-60w with a 70-80w pre-heat.

    Did I make a mistake going with this mod? I had hoped to play around with TC as I have SS and Ti wire sitting around but it seems even the updated model does not lock the resistance? I'm guessing long as I stay in VW mode and don't go past 150ish I am good? Only paid $48 shipped but it does chap me that it can not do what it says it can.

    The 213 works as my BEST TC mod! Let me explain...I use Pt950 wire for my coils. The TCR for Pt950 (95% platinum) is different than 100% platinum. the SS304 mode on the 213 doesn't really work for actual SS304 wire, but it nails the platinum/ruthenium wire I use better than anything else. I have an eScribe profile for the wire I use, which I've tweaked over and over trying to nail the TCR curve by trial and error. I've gotten close, but it's still not the match that the 213 is, by serendipitous accident.

    For SS316L, Ti, Ni200....I wouldn't call it useless, but it's miles off compared to a DNA 200, or most other mods.
