For this model, the design team kept things simple. Its curved contours and edges offer a more comfortable grip for the user. The rounded edges also shave a few millimeters off the main profile of the mod, further reinforcing its “compactness” and portability.
The main body now houses dual 18650 cells, with a hinged battery door at the base of the unit that is easily flipped open when needed. The use of external cells is a slight departure for the brand, with many of their previous high-powered designs utilizing built-in cells. This is a very clever design decision. It allows for a top power output of 220-watts, but enables them to manufacture the setup at a reasonable cost point, making it more widely accessible.
The mod itself features a larger 1.3-inch, front-facing screen that offers a clear, vertical, black and white display. And like we have seen with the Pico, an oval firing button is discreetly positioned along the side of the main body, for total ease of use. Unlike the Pico, which placed the 510-connection alongside the battery bay, the 510-connection is now centered at the top of main unit, ensuring compatibility with atomizers of up to 27 mm.
For this kit combo, Eleaf has included their ELLO T Atomizer, which utilizes the HW Series coil family. These powerful stock coils are rated for use at higher powers and are ideal for non-builders. Bottom airflow control and an extendable ejuice reservoir offer some additional vaping customization. With the outputs reliant predominantly on the coils themselves, there isn’t much need for added extras.
I feel that this is one of their more attractive designs to date. As a former Pico fan, I consider this a worthy upgrade to my beloved single battery setup. I, for one, would be surprised if it doesn’t meet or even surpass the success of the Pico, becoming the new “go to” setup for vapers who are curious about pushing out more power.
