Featuring a centered 510 connector and side view OLED display, this spec’d out mod has been a delight to use. However, the same can’t be said of the ELABO Mini tank. Flavor and vapor production is okay, certainly no more than average for today’s tanks, and the 2mL capacity holds little appeal with Vapers that are used to 4mL and 5mL as the average capacity for personal vaping. Sinuous could have, should have, paired the P80 with a better, slightly larger sub-ohm tank. But enough of that, let’s discuss the Sinuous P80 mod as a standalone device.
Sinuous points out that the main selling features of the P80 are:
A Compact Single 18650 Mod with 80W Max Output
A Centered 510 Spring Loaded Connector
Hidden Fire Button and a Side 0.96inch Screen
An Indicator Light with Three Changeable Colors
Convenient Slide-Top Fill Design with Innovative Child Lock System (tank)
Other features worth a mention include a 2A quick charge, a preheat function, full temperature control with TCR adjustments that allows users to fine-tune desired output, and dual circuit protection for maximum safety. The Sinuous P80 has a power range of 1 to 80W.
The OLED display is arranged centrally, and it features a vertical display with neatly organized information. Live readings along with battery life meters and colorful LED lights are also a part of the feature set.
The WISMEC Sinuous P80 is available in silver, black, blue, red, and copper (we think it’s copper. Our review units are blue). It is expected to sell under $50 for the complete kit.
A Sinuous P80 Real World Usage Report
The Sinuous P80 truly came in handy these last several days as I traveled back and forth to a hospital in Burlington MA. The small size, easy to grip shape allowed for safe use while driving, and an easy, slip-in-the-pocket, while in the hospital. A fully charged hi-amp (Nitecore 3100 35A) lasted the drive down, the 2-hour visit, and the drive back, a total of 4 hours, give or take. At the end of the journey I had just under half charge left, which lasted another hour or two of heavier vaping. Not bad for battery management.
Using a less capable battery, the 2100mAh Nitecore on one trip I was very happy to have had a spare with me, by the time I was half way back home the battery needed changing.
What I liked about the Sinuous P80, in addition to the grip, was the firing panel, the ease of swapping out the battery, and the over-sized OLED display. (0.96”) This is an easy mod to like, and the price is excellent for the quality of the mod. Some of you will like the ELABO sub-ohm tank, while others will want to step up to something better, like the SMOK TVF8 Big Baby. If you’re not overly concerned with nailing the nuances of a fine eliquid, or up for some cloud chasing, the ELABO Mini might work fine for you.
After a couple of tanks full of Naked 100 Go ‘Nana’s, I knew the ELABO wasn’t going to be my choice. Instead, with the shade of blue of my Sinuous P80, and the black firing panel, I chose a black SMOK Big Baby and it has been a seriously nice combination. I use the SMOK V8-T6 Sextuple Coil 0.2ohm with the full 80W coming at it. This coil is designed for 40-130W, the optimal range is 70-90W, and 80W with the P80 is nearly perfect.
Honesty at Work
WISMEC works with several companies, helping them design and then manufacture unique mods for
their brand. Some are spectacular, and some are very affordable. WISMEC can use the best materials money can buy, or less than the best. It’s up to the partner company and what they want to present to their customers. However, there are several tell-tale signs of a WISMEC made mod, which in most cases works to the benefit of the consumer no matter the retail cost.
To recognize a WISMEC made co-branded mod, just browse the WISMEC website and look at the safety features in all the mods, as well as the selection of displays, firing buttons and panels, and even the chipsets used in the electronics. While each shape is unique, there is a selection of options co-brands can choose to create their unique, and I’m okay with that. WISMEC makes good products, most of the time, and they give companies like Sinuous, or Vape Forward, or MyVapors, the opportunity to offer some cool devices for less than they could otherwise.
I score the Sinuous P80 a solid B+ for the mod, and the ELABO Mini is a solid C, an average 2mL sub-ohm tank. For a full kit that will sell well under $50? A very easy decision. Get one.
Will be available at MyVaporStore in July 2017
