dotMod dotBox 100W Kit

Callum managed to get his hands on the new dotMod dotBOX 100W kit, and here's what he thought about it

Share on:

In the ever-evolving world of vaping, dotMod has established itself as a brand synonymous with quality, innovation, and elegance. Their latest offering, the dotMod dotBox 100W Kit, continues this legacy. This review delves into the various aspects of the dotBox 100W Kit, providing an in-depth analysis of its design, performance, features, and overall value.

Design and Build QualityAesthetic Appeal

The dotBox 100W Kit is a visual masterpiece. dotMod's signature design elements, including the sleek chassis and intricate logo, make it stand out. Available in various colours, the device caters to different aesthetic preferences, ensuring that every vaper can find a style that suits them.
dotMod’s signature textured gold button is sleek and has a nice tactile feel when you click it, after using this for a few weeks the button makes you want to vape more just so you can press it! It may seem like a minor detail in the grand scheme of things but it’s these little features that will keep me coming back to this mod for a while to come.

Material and Durability

Constructed from high-quality anodized aluminium, the dotBox 100W is both lightweight and sturdy. The build quality exudes durability, promising a long-lasting vaping experience. The precision machining and attention to detail reflect dotMod’s commitment to excellence.
While the mod itself is light and sturdy, it’s not so light where it feels flimsy or cheap, in the hand, you can feel the subtle weight it has and it’s well balanced so it’s not top heavy or bottom heavy, even with the battery inside.

Ergonomics and Portability

Despite its robust build, the dotBox 100W is ergonomically designed, fitting comfortably in hand. Its compact size enhances portability, making it a perfect companion for vapers on the go. The intuitive placement of buttons further enhances user experience, ensuring that all functions are easily accessible, the placement of the button is well thought out, in my hands I never have to stretch to reach the fire button, keeping my hand nice and relaxed while vaping. 

dotTank

The dotTank included in the kit, is built with the same lightweight sturdiness that the mod has. It features a nice top airflow design which is my preference when it comes to tanks, it has a standard quarter turn to open the top to access your fill ports, 
The included drip tip is nice, but for me personally I prefer a wider drip tip, which thanks to the standard 810 connection I could easily swap it out for my preferred drip tip. The glass is a 5.5ml capacity and the kit comes with a spare 5.5ml bubble glass should you have any accidents and break the preinstalled one. The 5.5ml capacity was more than enough for me day to day.

Performance and Functionality

Power Output and Range

The dotBox 100W Kit boasts a power range of 5W to 100W, catering to both novice and experienced vapers. This flexibility allows users to customise their vaping experience according to their preferences, whether they prefer a mild or intense hit.

Temperature Control

Equipped with a comprehensive temperature control suite, the dotBox 100W supports Ni200, Titanium, and Stainless Steel coils. This feature provides precise control over the vaping temperature, enhancing flavour and vapour production while preventing dry hits.

Chipset and Efficiency

At the heart of the dotBox 100W is dotMod’s proprietary dotChip. Renowned for its accuracy and efficiency, the dotChip ensures consistent performance. The chipset’s reliability minimises misfires and enhances battery life, offering a seamless vaping experience.

Battery Life and Charging

The device is powered by a single 18650 battery. With efficient power management, the dotBox 100W offers impressive battery life, allowing extended vaping sessions. The USB Type-C charging port ensures fast and convenient recharging, reducing downtime.

Features and User Experience

Display and Interface

The dotBox 100W features a vibrant OLED screen that displays essential information such as wattage, resistance, and battery life. The interface is user-friendly, making it easy to navigate through various settings and modes.
In the settings there are a few colour themes if you want to change it up a bit and make it your own, personally I stuck with the default black & gold theme as I personally think this one looks the best as it blends in with the rest of black frame around the screen while still keeping nice subtle gold accents.

Modes and Customization

In addition to standard wattage and temperature control modes, the dotBox 100W offers a range of customization options. Users can tweak settings to their liking, ensuring a personalised vaping experience. The inclusion of bypass mode allows the device to function like a mechanical mod, providing direct battery output.

Safety Features

Safety is paramount in vaping, and the dotBox 100W doesn’t disappoint. The device includes multiple safety protections, such as short-circuit protection, overheat protection, and low voltage protection. These features ensure a safe vaping experience, giving users peace of mind.

Flavour and Vapour Production

Coil Compatibility

The dotBox 100W Kit is compatible with a wide range of coils, including dotMod’s proprietary coils, I was given a pack of 0.3 coils with my kit and the device includes a 0.3 and a 0.15 coil in the box. I’ve been a big fan of the 0.3 coils and that’s what I’ll stick with long term, it produces a nice smooth flavour and a decent amount of airflow for those who like to make big clouds. In my use with the 0.3 coils I was able to get around 1500 puffs before I needed to replace it as I could feel the flavour dropping off a bit, I’m sure I could have stretched it out a bit more if needed.
This compatibility ensures that users can experiment with different setups to achieve their desired flavour and vapour production.

Flavour Quality

One of the standout features of the dotBox 100W is its ability to deliver exceptional flavour. Whether using standard coils or building custom ones, the device consistently produces rich and nuanced flavours, making it a favourite among flavour chasers.

Vapour Density

With a power range that supports both low and high wattages, the dotBox 100W excels in vapour production. Users can expect thick, satisfying clouds, especially when using sub-ohm coils. The device’s efficiency ensures that vapour production remains consistent throughout the vaping session.

Conclusion

The dotMod dotBox 100W Kit is a testament to dotMod’s commitment to quality and innovation. With its elegant design, robust performance, and user-friendly features, it stands out as one of the top devices in the vaping market. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned vaper, the dotBox 100W offers a versatile and satisfying vaping experience. Despite its higher price point, the device’s build quality, safety features, and exceptional flavour and vapour production make it a worthwhile investment for anyone looking to enhance their vaping journey.

I was a smoker for almost 15 years, I tried vaping a cheap vape pen but was quickly back on the death sticks. Fast forward to discovering the Xros pod devices from my mother-in-law(!) I've now completely given up and vaping pretty much whenever I'm not sleeping
