Council of Vapor Gets Tempestuous
In the very back corner of VPX Las Vegas 2016 was Council of Vapor’s booth, where the company was showing off the upcoming Tempest box mod. I’m glad that I found the booth, because the Tempest was one of the sweetest products I saw at the show. It’s a triple-18650 box-mod with a wonderfully comfortable shape that will feel great to most righties and lefties out there. Check out my chat with brand ambassador Kerry Lam above and keep reading for more details on the Council of Vapor Tempest.

Beautiful to See, Delightful to Hold
The first thing that grabbed me about the Council of Vapor Tempest was its shape. For a triple-18650 battery mod, it’s amazingly comfortable to hold. Beyond that, I was surprised that it felt equally comfortable in my left hand as it did my right. (Confession: I’m a lefty that recently purchased a mod that feels great in my right hand and unwieldy in my left.) While I only spent a few minutes with the Tempest, I’m confident that most people will prefer its feel over competing triple-battery mods from Eleaf and Wismec.
The aesthetics are classic Council of Vapor. Both models have the company’s signature carbon fiber accents, as seen on Mini Volt (expertly reviewed by Vaping360’s Jeremy Mann). I was particularly fond of the white model’s looks — very Stormtrooper. While the optional leather accents were listed on the sell sheet, I was told that they might not make it to market.
While I was impressed by the Tempest’s look and feel, I have no idea how it performs. Be on the lookout for more coverage of this mod in the future. For now, share your thoughts on the mod in the comments section.
