Triple Your Pleasure
The Eleaf iStick TC200W is a triple-18650 box mod with a very familiar chip. Triple-battery mods have been mildly popular among enthusiast vapers and didn’t reach mass-market popularity until the Wismec Reuleaux RX200. The iStick TC200W is very similar to Wismec’s popular box, which isn’t a surprise since both companies are Joyetech subsidiaries. Here’s a quick look at the Eleaf iStick TC200W.

Same Same, But Different
As you can tell from the product shots, the Eleaf iStick TC200W uses the same chip as the Wismec Reuleaux RX200. That chip has been getting a ton of mileage, appearing in devices like the iStick TC100W, the Vape Forward Vapor Flask Classic, and the Beyond Vape Centurion. There’s a reason why that chipset is so popular; it’s quite capable, while also being significantly cheaper than the Evolv DNA200 and YiHi SX350J v2 chips.
The question I’ve been hearing from a lot of vapers is, “Why should I get this mod over the Reuleaux?” That’s a very fair point. That mod has been out longer and is easier to find at a discount. As far as price goes, expect this mod to cost slightly more at launch, with the price coming down shortly thereafter. It pretty much comes down to comfort. While I find the Reuleaux completely comfortable, some of my friends find it bulky. The iStick TC200W is shaped more like an oval compared to the Reuleax’s triangle. Since we all have different hands and preferences, I’m certain that you’ll find one more comfortable than the other.
(I apologies to any biological twins, triplets, etc. that I offended. I know that you guys have the same hands.)
The Eleaf iStick TC200W is set to ship at the end of the month. What do you ladies and gentlemen think of it? Please share your thoughts on the comments section.
