Cloupor T8 Intro
In this article we review the Cloupor T8 box mod. The Cloupor T8 is advertised as a 150W box mod and is a great looking device with a really nice screen with plenty of useful information.
The Cloupor T8 faces some very stiff competition from the likes of the Sigelei 150W and the IPV3 150W – two very solid devices.
The market seems to be in somewhat of a wattage war right now and we have seen the release of some sub ohm clearomizers that are capable of 150W. Lots of vapers are now looking for a 150W box to try these high wattage coils and vape with a device with a longer battery life. So which box mod should you get and is the Cloupor T8 a good choice? We take a look below.

Using the Cloupor T8 150W
- 5 clicks of the button to turn on and off
- Hold down minus and fire to switch between normal and stealth mode. Stealth mode will work without displaying any information on the screen. Could be good if you want to stealth vape and don’t want anyone noticing your box mod
- Hold down + and the fire button to reset your puff counter
My favourite thing about the Cloupor T8 is its high resolution OLED screen. This was my only gripe with the very impressive Sigelei 150W, as I wasn’t a fan of its screen. The Cloupor T8 screen shows an abundance of useful information at a high resolution:
- Resistance of your coil (to two decimal places)
- Battery life
- Voltage when firing
- Puff counter
- Temperature of the CPU/chip (if over a certain temp it will
The screen will go to sleep, after a short time of not being used, and will come back on instantly when you press any of the buttons.
Scrolling up and down the wattages also wasn’t as cumbersome as on the Sigelei 150W in my opinion and the accelerator made it easier to find wattages. Overall, I much prefer the very aesthetic screen on the Cloupor T8 to the Sigelei 150W.
I like the aesthetics of the Cloupor T8 and the device comes in Black, Red, Blue or Silver. We got ours in black and it looks pretty good. It is slightly less wide than the Sigelei 150W and that means it sits, in my fairly averaged size hands, a lot better. I think the device, as a whole, looks really good and is probably my favourite in terms of looks between the IPV3 and the Sigelei 150W.
The battery life on the Cloupor T8 is very impressive. Vaping a higher ohm build around 30W, will last for ages and is comparable to that of the Sigelei 150W if not a bit better. Obviously lower ohm builds at higher wattages will drain the battery faster, so do bear that in mind.
Word of warning when charging: The mini USB port is not for charging the device, only for downloading future firmware updates.
Good Safety Features
The Cloupor T8 comes with the expected safety features you would come to expect from a box mod. I like the chip temperature protection and if it goes over 53 degrees Celsius it will say “Too Hot” and then turn off the device.
Scratch Resistant Material
The finish on the Cloupor T8 is really good and is fairly scratch resistant. You won’t need to use a silicon sleeve like you do on the Sigelei 150W.
Good Resistance Range
The lowest resistance is 0.15ohm, which is great for those who want to build very low ohm builds. The max resistance is 4ohm and the screen shows the resistance of your coil to two decimal places, which I really liked.
Not 150W and Underpowered
This is a very big issue for me on this box mod. Cloupor advertise it as a 150W box mod, but actually it can’t fire above 100W. If I try my Sigelei 150W at 150W on my very low sub ohm vaping coils, it will absolutely blow my mouth out, it is so hot and unvapable. The coil when used on the Cloupor T8 on the other hand, wasn’t anywhere near as hot and unvapable. This to me indicates that the Cloupor T8 just isn’t firing above somewhere around 100W. Check out the great video zvaper did below, where he looks at the real max wattage on the Cloupor T8 vs the Sigelei 150W.
For me this is a big flaw and is false advertising in my opinion. It would be like ordering a liter of beer and only getting 600ml. If that happened in a pub, I would be pretty pissed off and would immediately send it back!
If you really want a mod that fires up to 150W, then I cannot recommend the Cloupor T8. It vapes very well up to 100W albeit it always felt slightly underpowered to me. If this was advertised as a 100W device I would be all over it, as I think apart from the wattage issue, it is a fantastic box mod. The price is also good for a 100W device, so if you want a 100W device then the Cloupor T8 is a good choice.
No Spring Loaded Pin
This wasn’t a big issue as all of my tanks sat flush on the Cloupor T8. However, it is annoying having to manually change the pin with a screwdriver every time you put on a different clearomizer. A spring loaded pin would have been much preferred, but it isn’t a deal breaker.
Overall the Cloupor T8 150W box mod is a fantastic looking box mod, which works very well up to 100W and has a great screen. As I said above if this device was advertised as a 100W box mod, it would be a fantastic choice. Most people won’t vape above 100W much anyway, so for most people this won’t be an issue. However, as it is advertised as a 150W device, you would when purchasing it, expect it to fire up to 150W. If I buy a 150W device I want it be able to fire up to 150W. I may not use it much at those levels, but it should be able to do it. I think this is slightly cheeky by Cloupor and this box mod should have been advertised as a 100W box, in which case it would have got a fantastic review. Unfortunately it is advertised as a 150W device, so because of that I cannot recommend it as a 150W box mod! If you want a box mod that can go up to 150W, then have a look at the Sigelei 150W.
