Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC

The Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC from Asmodus is a compact little unit that has a power output of 75W and temperature control support for both Nickel and Titanium wires. It sports a new chipset, known as the GX75, which also enables the Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC to fire resistances down to 0.05ohm. It's made from brushed stainless steel with different coloured panels available, and it's designed to be an ergonomic device capable of powering pretty much any atomiser you can put on it.

What’s in the Box?

The Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC comes in some pretty funky packaging, inside the box you'll find an instruction manual and the Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC mod itself, as well as a USB cable that you can use for charging the Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC.

Looks

The Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC sports a brushed stainless steel finish, with a laser etched Snow Wolf logo on the outside, and a large OLED screen that displays output power, battery level, resistance, output voltage and whether the device is currently in power mode, Nickel mode or Titanium mode. When in either Nickel or Titanium mode, the output power will switch to temperature limit. The buttons on the outside are of a decent size although they are rather clicky, I haven't had any problems with the responsiveness of the buttons however.

There's a spring loaded 510 connector at the top that didn't give me any issues with any atomisers I tried, I used a range of different atomisers such as the Uwell Rafale, EVL Reaper and the Geek Vape Tsunami and everything fitted flush without gaps, and at the base of the unit there are plenty of battery venting holes plus a USB port for charging. The door panel on the side, which comes in a range of different colours, is held on with magnets and pops on and off easily allowing you access to the battery compartment. The Snow Wolf 75W TC takes a single 18650 battery, which fits snugly inside the compartment, so make sure you use the included battery ribbon to ensure you can remove your battery easily.

It's a great looking little device, and the logo etched on the side isn't offensive either, it definitely goes well with this good looking little unit. It fits nice and snugly in the palm of your hand, is comfortable to hold, and not too weighty either. The OLED screen is of a very good size and it is easy to read as well.

Operating the Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC

The Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC is a simple unit to use, and there is no real menu system to speak of. Everything is adjusted via simple button press combinations. The Power button fires the device, and the up and down buttons allow you to adjust the select power/temperature limit. Holding down power and up will lock in the power, so it can't be accidentally adjusted, power and down will lock in your resistance, and holding down both the up and down buttons will allow you to switch between Ni (for Ni200 coils), Power (for standard Kanthal/Nichrome/SS coils) and Ti (for Titanium) coils.

When in Ni or Ti temperature control modes it is imperative that you lock in the resistance of your coil to allow for accuracy and a stable temperature control experience. Wait until your device and atomiser are at room temperature, then hold power and down to lock your resistance in. You’ll then be able to set your preferred temperature limit and vape away.

Performance

It fires down to 0.05ohm in both power and temperature control mode, meaning that it is compatible with pretty much all of the top sub ohm tanks on the market today. The ability to fire resistance down to 0.05ohm in temperature control is great, as it means when using thicker gauge wire with Ni200 in particular you won’t need as many wraps when building a coil to use with the Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC. 75W is more than enough power for a single 18650 battery device, however you do need to bear in mind the battery lifespan will be very short should you be using the Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC at close to its maximum output power.

Temperature control mode supports Ni200 and Titanium wire, and has the optimum settings for these wires pre loaded onto the chip, unfortunately there is no support for Stainless Steel wire in temperature control but you can use Stainless Steel wire in power mode. You simply select whether you are using Ni200 or Titanium wire, lock in the resistance at room temperature, set your temperature limit and away you go. I found it to be stable and accurate, with a nice vape from both Ni200 and Titanium coils.

I believe that due to the Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC only using a single 18650 battery it is best to use it at 40w and under with your atomiser when out and about, as above 40w the battery life does drain down fast, I did notice that when in temperature control the battery did last ever so slightly longer. Battery life overall is good for a single 18650 unit when used moderately at below 40w, above 40w you are looking at a couple of hours before you need to change your battery. Thankfully you can recharge via USB, and the magnetic battery door gives you easy access to the battery compartment inside when you need to swap out a battery. 

Conclusion

The Snow Wolf Mini 75W TC is a solid little unit that outputs as much power as you would comfortably want from a single 18650 battery, and it has a solid and well functioning temperature control mode as well. It's a user friendly device, with no confusing menus, small and ergonomic and it's competitively priced too, I haven't been able to fault the Snow Wolf 75W TC!
