Yes, 228 from the name is the actual power this mod can offer. The Wsimec Predator 228 seems to create a lot of rumor as many will say that it resembles the Smok Alien mod, a move from Wismec to compete against one of the most popular mods from Smok. The Wsimec Predator 228 comes with some amazing features that I am sure you are happy to discover in this review. So let’s start!
The Predator 228 was designed by Sinuous Designs located in the USA. It is quite handy and it comes in a kit that features the well known Elabo tank. The mod can be also purchased separately.
We find inside a Wismec chipset that can produce a proper wattage that goes from 1W to 228 W. It supports coils from 0.1 ohms up to 3.5 ohms. Besides many other pluses that we will discuss below, temperature control is available on this mod as well. The TC mode supports Titanium, Stainless steel, and Ni200 Nickel wairs.
The colors available varied, being sold in 10 different styles. You can choose from a simple brushed silver or black to a combination of two colors such as beige and green or orange and silver.
When opening the box, you will find inside one Predator 228 with no cells (working with tow 18650 batteries), 1 Elabo atomizer, one Triple 0,2 ohm coil, one NS triple 0.25 ohm coil, one QC USB cable, two User Manuals – one for the Predator and one for the Elabo and one Warning card.
228W/50A Max Power Output
An important feature of the Predator 228 is the one that it is powered by dual replaceable 18650 cells. 228 W is the maximum output that can be reached by the mod. This is how you can get more possibilities to use coils that request a maximum current of 50A. The mod can be charged by connecting it to a computer or by attaching the USB cable to a wall adapter.
Reverse charging feature
Probably one of the best feature the Predator 228 include is the reverse charging functionality. In this way, you can use it as a power bank to charge any other device you want. So you won’t need an extra power bank for your phone, as you can have both a mod and a charger on the same device. The downside is that you will need to purchase the adapter for reverse charging as is not included in the kit. Is a very inexpensive adapter called Avatar and it costs around 3-5$.
Balanced battery charging
When you charge the Predator 228, you can easily see how the cells charge separately on the Oled screen. You will know exactly when the mod is charged at the battery level precision. Get accurate information fast and easy.
