The Eleaf iStick 100W - A Beast of a Mod with Wide Appeal
The popularity of the iStick series, a group of variable wattage/variable voltage mods, has made Eleaf a well-known name in the vaping world. Vapers of all experience levels love their iSticks for the compact size, user friendly features and budget pricing. Many own several! Until recently, the most powerful iStick was the iStick 50W. Some vapers were left wanting more power, while others bemoaned the lack of removable batteries. Some did not like the way atomizers with larger diameters hang unattractively over the sides of their iStick. Eleaf’s latest addition to the family, the iStick 100W, addresses all of these concerns, while retaining all of the features that make the iSticks so attractive to vapers.
If you are looking for a powerful mod that can stay relevant to your needs as you go through your vaping journey, the iStick 100W has got you covered.
With adjustable wattage between 5.0W-100.0W and adjustable voltage between 2.0-10.0V, this mod can handle coil resistances all the way down to 0.15 ohm and up to 5.0 ohm. The iStick 100W can run practically any atomizer on the market right now. Use everything from a Kanger AeroTank or Aspire Nautilus Mini, to sub ohm clearomizers like the FreeMax Starre and Kanger SubTank Mini. The iStick 100W is right at home with rebuildable atomizers as well, like the Veritas RDA or Kayfun Lite Plus RBA. A spring-loaded 510 connection ensures that your atomizer will sit flush on the device. And, a diameter of 25.8mm means that even your larger atomizers, like the Kanger Subtank PLUS (25mm diameter), will look terrific on this mod.
The iStick 100W uses 2 x flat top 18650 High Drain IMR batteries in parallel. Don’t want to or can’t always wait for your iStick to charge fully? Just remove the magnetic battery back cover and swap out drained batteries for a pair of freshly charged ones! Charge your batteries separately with a Li-Ion battery charger, or take advantage of on-board charging (charge your batteries without removing them from the device). And, in keeping with tradition, the iStick 100W has Pass-through capabilities, allowing you to vape while you charge.
Same Great Features
The iStick 100W has only 3 buttons, with a 5-click ON/OFF and 3-click press of the firing button to switch between variable wattage and voltage. It is very easy to use and it has all standard protection features: 10-Second Safety Cutoff, Short Circuit and Low Voltage protection, Low Power and Temperature Alert. The option of locking your volt/watt setting to prevent accidental changes or flipping the orientation of the OLED screen are as convenient as ever.
The iStick 100W is the largest of the iSticks, but it is still relatively small compared to other devices of its kind (it is only a bit over ½ in taller than the iStick 50W and slightly wider). Its rounded edges and smooth finish are in keeping with the ergonomic design we expect of any iStick. This mod feels great in the hand!
With up to 100W of power, many great features, the convenience of replaceable batteries, no-fuss operation and clean looks, the Eleaf iStick 100W is an excellent addition to the iStick family – and a steal at $41.95.
