I’m a couple weeks late to the party on this one, and for that I apologize. The Wismec EXO Skeleton ES300 TC Starter Kit came out at the start of this month — and I got mine then! — but then I was sick and couldn’t do reviews for a while. Sorry about that.
First of all, I got this mod at a discount from the lovely Element Vape. Feel free to check them out. That’s not an affiliate link, and I won’t get ANY kick back if you decide to buy from them. (Though, if you DO want to contribute to Lauren Vapes, feel free to check out my Patreon *hint hint*).
But enough about money stuff. Let’s talk about this vape mod!
As you can see, it LOOKS pretty darn cool, right?
One of the coolest things about the EXO Skeleton is that you can see all of its components. Here’s a pic of my roommate showing it off:
See how it’s clear and you can see inside it? I think that’s super neato.
But vape mods have to be about more than just their looks to really wow us, right, Vape Fam? So let’s take a look at the specs:
The Wismec EXO Skeleton takes three 18650 batteries and can ramp up to a whopping 300W. It has a maximum atomizer resistance of 0.05ohm and a temperature range of 200-600F. This baby is POWERFUL. Definitely NOT for beginner vapers.
The mod cage comes in silver, blue, or red.
The tank has a 2.8mL capacity and is made out of stainless steel and Pyrex. It has a dual bottom airflow and a sliding top-fill design.
If you use the WT-H2 Dual Horizontal Coils, you can vape at 30-90W; and if you use the WT-V3 Triple Vertical Coils, you can vape at 80-220W.
Well, as I said, this vape mod LOOKS really cool. When you hit the fire button, little LED lights zip around inside it, which is a heck of a lot of fun, and very eye-catching to anyone who happens to be watching you vape.
I also appreciate that the mode/adjustment buttons are on the top and out of the way. You’re not likely to accidentally bump your wattage to a different setting while casually vaping the night away. That’s very handy.
The battery life also lasts quite a long time, despite using this thing at higher wattages. I was getting a good 3-4 hours of usage from it each session without having to change out the batteries. Not bad!
And the coils to this were very unique. The triple vertical coils were nothing special, really — except for the fact that you could easily ramp it up to 220W with no issues. However, the horizontal coils are definitely the ones to write home about. Those coils gave the flavor and vapor production of a classic RDA-style atomizer, but with the convenience of a tank. THAT was pretty mind-blowing.
I also liked the sliding top-fill tank design… in theory, at least. Mine happens to stick like crazy and is very hard to open at times. Which, I suppose, is a good place to start talking about the cons.
The cage design LOOKS amazing, but it can get uncomfortable to hold after hours on end. If you’re like I am and just sit back and vape for a few hours straight, you might find yourself getting a cage pattern on the palm of your hand.
As a lady vaper, I also noticed that it was VERY large, and I couldn’t quite get my hand all the way around it, which made me a little nervous. I’m always afraid of dropping my mods, and I like to use smaller models that I can get a good grip on.
The cage around the tank spins. Which is neither here nor there when it’s on the vape and you’re using it; however, it becomes irritating when you remove the tank to replace the coil — it gets in the way.
The fire button, while large, can sometimes be hard to find. And the cage around the vape sometimes gets in the way of hitting it properly.
The tank also only holds 2.8mL of juice. And, to be honest, I have my doubts it even holds that much. The coil takes up a LOT of room in there, and I had to refill this thing constantly.
Not to mention that you can’t buy the coils for the darn tank anywhere. I wrote to every vape shop online that I could find who were selling the starter kit and NONE of them carried the coils for the tank. To me, that renders the tank pretty much pointless from the get-go. If you can’t replace the coils in your tank, why bother? (Especially when the coils are one of the premier features of this particular tank!).
If you’re looking for a really powerful vape mod at a reasonable price, the EXO Skeleton might be the mod for you. I know Element Vape is currently selling the mod by itself for about $50. Considering how much power this thing boasts, and all its nifty features, that’s a pretty good deal.
Though, honestly, are you REALLY going to use that much power…? Having the ability to go up to 300W is pretty rad, but are you actually going to vape at those levels?
If the answer is “yes,” then go for it. Get the mod. Skip the tank though — it’s not worth it.
However, if you want a powerful vape that’s WAY better, and just as inexpensive, I’d invest in the Smok Alien. It “only” goes up to 220W, but that’s MORE than enough power for most vapers. And, yes, I’ll be doing a review on that mod soon. Stay tuned!
Until next time,
