Wismec Reuleaux RX2 21700 Design,Look and Feel
When looking at the RX2 21700, the eyes are drawn the attractive design and detail throughout the device. From the large firing button to the large, bright LED screen. Wismec has always done a great job at manufacturing aesthetically pleasing hardware. To feel it in the hand, it sits comfortably and fits the palm very well.
Offered in four colors, Gloss Black, Gradient White, Gradient Purple and Gradient Green. Most users should be able to find a color scheme they enjoy. Wismec has done well with the finish on the RX2 21700. Smooth to the touch with a solid finish, the RX2 is a real winner.
More than half of the device is taken up by the 21700 battery compartment and when removed from the device, it becomes considerably smaller, revealing the size required for the large 21700 batteries. The battery compartment on the RX2 21700 is very nice, simply slide the unlock button and pull the pack out. The pack is guided in and out via a track system. Secure and firm, the battery pack sits in place with no movement at all.
While not recommended, the RX2 21700 has the ability to perform 2A quick charging via the USB port on the device. Stats of the RX indicate that the quick charge does have a balanced charging feature to ensure both batters charge at the same rate, keeping the cells healthy
The RX2 21700 has a large 1.3″ LED Display, easy to read even in bright conditions. Navigating the menus of the RX2 are simple and user-friendly. The icons on the RX2 appear like virtual keys, completely aesthetic feature but appealing all the same.
Overall, the RX looks and feels like a high-quality device. Wismec, for the most part, releases very nice looking devices. Much of this is thanks to JayBo designs and their incredible design work.
Wismec Reuleaux RX2 21700 Box Mod Performance
Out of the box, the RX2 21700 comes to life with a large bright LED screen. Capable of achieving 230W of power and a 200F-600F temperature range, the RX is suitable for vapers just starting out to vapers looking for a high power device for large custom coil builds and high power sub tanks.
In the past, Wismec has seen broken success with their 510 connections on their devices. It has been stated previously that these issues have been resolved but from time to time it seems like they arise again. During testing the RX2 21700, multiple atomizers were tested and each of them successfully fired on the device. One atomizer,the one included in the kit version did not read initially but after unthreading and re-attaching,worked fine.
The most important thing to note with this new RX2 21700 is the extended battery life as compared to standard dual 18650 mods. In comparing daily usage of a dual 18650 device, the RX2 21700 lasted in testing several hours longer than the 18650. Naturally, this is due to the increased capacity of the 21700 batteries but users looking for a device that can offer extended periods of battery life should consider the RX2.
The large firing button on the front of the RX2 21700 makes for an easy to operate device, even in cold conditions.If the device user is wearing gloves, the large button makes it comfortable to use even with gloves on.
As most devices go, the RX2 21700 works quite well, better than expected. Flaws in the 510 connection sometimes do not reveal themselves until later on but Wismec has done a good job in correcting this issue in previous devices so we think the RX2 will be just fine.
