Wismec Active, a mod with music inside!
Among the many made in China device manufacturers for vaping, a place of absolute importance is covered by the Wismec company which, from the lively Shenzen district, has been operating in the vaping sector for several years, producing a rather diversified range of products, from the mods mechanical, to circuitate, passing through the bf mod, to atomizers and so on.
Today, under the magnifying glass of our team, will pass the Active box mod, one of the latest Wismec creations, certainly a rather atypical and unique product.

DESIGN AND BUILD QUALITY
The Wismec Active is a box mod that, within the world of vaping devices, does not go unnoticed. A glance at its side walls with speaker grilles is enough to understand that it is a “musical” mod. Yes, because with this product Wismec intends to create a close connection between the world of vaping and that of music. A product that aims to have a certain appeal in a young and lively environment like that of e-cig.
The Wismec Active has a rather classic shape and to be honest its lines appear quite sharp and not very minimal. From the aesthetic point of view it is massive and cumbersome, although in hand it is instead very light and quite manageable. From the constructive point of view, although almost entirely in plastic, Active appears to be of good quality, without however making the people shout to the miracle; is in line with the price range within which it arises. The manufacturer declares that the mod is completely resistant to water and also for this reason it is covered by a thick silicone cover which honestly increases its bulk. On the front of the mod there are the fire button, the up and down buttons, the USB port for charging and the reset button protected by a silicone door, the display is about 1″ very bright and clear with the usual info on watts or degrees, resistance value, supply volt and battery charge. A simple and well-made display that represents a plus for this model. On the back of the box, instead, are positioned the bluetooth mode controls.
ERGONOMICS AND PORTABILITY
The feeling with Active is not, in our opinion, among the most immediate. The mod has a large footprint (94.5 x 55.6 x 26.6 mm) and, despite a fairly low weight (160 gr), the grip is never as comfortable as it should be. Also the stability of the mod is often a little precarious, both for its height (often going over 100 mm with the atomizer mounted), and for the silicone shell. In fact, on several occasions we have seen the Active swinging dangerously on the supporting surface where it was placed, when laid down in a hurried way.
Wismec has equipped the Active with a rear loop at the top where to attach the supplied carabina hook. The intentions of the manufacturer would be a system to facilitate the transport of the mod hooked to a backpack or simply to a pair of trousers, to allow the vaper to listen to music on the go. But are we really sure that a hook is enough to guarantee this use?
FUNCTIONS & PERFORMANCES
Certainly this mod cannot be said to shine for having a latest generation chip. The circuit of Wismec Active is the most essential thing there can be on the market of the circuit circuits at the moment. The mod turns on/off with the canonical sequence of five close clicks, while with three close clicks you access the functions menu which offers the following: wattage mode, bypass mode, temperature control mode (nickel chrome, titanium, stainless steel and two personal settings storable M1 and M2). Also on the bluetooth side it is not necessary to have a degree to understand how it works. It’s all very simple and believe us, it is an absolute asset for Active.
We will now analyze the performance of the box in more detail, distinguishing between the vaping and audio sectors.
For the vaping section, as already mentioned, Active can offer extreme ease of use and sufficient performance, but on the other hand it must be said that it was not equipped with a last generation circuit. In any case, we have not found any functioning problems in any of the dispensing methods provided for in the box. We have only noticed an annoying and occasional problem in the response of the fire button, certainly due to the thickness of the silicone cover which prevents a correct pressure on the fire button.
Speaking of the maximum power that Active can express, in our opinion the maximum 80 W expected are perhaps excessive for a product that has a built-in 2100 mAh battery; battery life is preserved in the best possible way if the box is used with mtl atomizers and/or flavor chasing atomizers, although perhaps at that point you may be wondering why a box of the size of a dual battery (18650). Question more than legitimate if you have not yet paired the box to your smartphone and are therefore not listening to music.
The most positive aspect of this product is undoubtedly the audio sector. Thanks to its grilled side surfaces, the Active has two absolutely amazing acoustic speakers! Once paired via bluetooth to your smartphone for example, you will be able to listen to music with a truly unexpected sound quality.
It is evident at this point how the manufacturer wanted to focus precisely on this last aspect, even at the expense of a smaller fleet of functions for the vape, without however depriving the extent of the essential.
EASE OF USE
One of the advantages of Wismec Active is undoubtedly its ease of use, also thanks to a circuit with a limited number of functions and perhaps a little obsolete. Even the bluetooth mode is very immediate and easy to use: a few buttons, extreme ease and speed of coupling with any device and, what is more important, high sound quality.
The Wismec Active is a box with vaping performance below the average compared to its competitors, but with the added value of having been equipped with a bluetooth speaker system that works very well. Wismec Active was born to add music to the vaper clouds of steam.
An inexpensive device designed and created for vaper on vacation. On the mountains or under the umbrella on the beach, you will have the opportunity to accompany your vape with a clear and high fidelity background music. Why in the end, which of you would never bring your best and most expensive box to the beach?
