There is something sexy and sort of evil about the Asmodus Snow Wolf Mods, and the new mini has all the same great looks in a much more compact size. 75W is more than enough power for most and this mod has a very premium look and feel for a reasonable price. So let’s find out how it stacks up…
At first glance it has very similar dimensions to the Sigelei 75W TC Mod and it should, it’s basically the same chipset (be it with vast improvements). But then you notice all the same great lines and curves as it’s big brother, the Snow Wolf 200W Mod. This is one fine looking Mod and the build quality and materials are very good for the $90 price tag. Every Atty you put on this one look dope as hell.
As with all single battery high wattage Mods, battery life is always a concern. But we are happy to report that something has been done to this Sigelei chipset, it has vastly improved battery life over the Sigelei 75W TC. You will still need to carry a spare battery if you are out all day, but you may just get away with a solid 8hrs before you need a change.
Fit and Finish are tight, buttons are nice and clicky, and everything pretty much works as it should. We have experienced some trouble getting the Mod to wake from sleep on first button press, sometimes it needs a second press to get going (it creates a bit of a trust issue for sure, and has hurt it’s overall score quite a bit). But for those of you that remember the wake issues with the original Snow Wolf, this is a big improvement still.
The display is nice and bright and we dig the white characters on black. Having the sides of the mod free of a display gives it a really premium look. The hand feel is very solid and the size is quite nice, it’s a hefty little mod but we like it.
The 510 would look so much better centred and would alleviate an issue with some attys not sitting flush because of the slightly curved contour of the top (this issue really does effect some of that premium look & feel).
All operating modes work as they should, but we have noticed that this mod hits a little weak when compared to similar Mods with the same settings. It feels like it’s under hitting your atty by about 5-10W. You can compensate as long as you aren’t hitting it’s top watt range. We have also noticed that even though it will fire low ohm builds it doesn’t like them. We get “High Heat” warnings and the mod gets warm on builds we have no trouble with on other mods (we are talking builds like 0.18 Ohms run at 55W). If you like Low builds this Mod isn’t for you in it’s current state. It runs great with anything over 0.3 ohms. It could be that we like to chain vape a little too much, but then again we don’t have this trouble with other mods.
There are issues, and some of them bigger than others, but it is one sexy little package. We feel a lot of these can be ironed out. It’s has a great look and feel to it and a pretty fair price for what you could get. It really has what it takes to rival some high end mods. At this time however, unless you really can’t wait, buy the v1.5. Asmodus has some work to do.
