Sigelei announces 150 watt mod with temperature control

Posted 17th June 2015 by
It seems not very much time has passed since Sigelei released their 150 watt box mod and with UK vendors only due to get stock of the 75 watt temperature control device towards the middle of this month, is this one mod too many? The decision to market yet another device may not sit well with Sigelei 150 watt box mod owners who may feel that they should have waited.

Nevertheless Sigelei like other manufacturer's will continue to produce new products if there is a demand for them. However the new 150 watt device is certainly going to cause some controversy. Its design being something of a radical departure from the existing models. Looking at the released images its clear to see Sigelei have gone for a far more ergonomic design, it may not be elegant to some but it should certainly feel far more comfortable in the hand.

I actually rather like its more futuristic looks but I'm sure many would have preferred the more traditional design.

The US Price is expected to be somewhere between $75-80. For the UK price I estimate it will be between £70-85.

There are some estimates of the device being released by the end of June but with the 75 watt device only just starting to find its way over here I would that it won't likely be available in the UK until July at the earliest.
