Sigelei Elite Tank V2 Intro
In this review we take a look at the Sigelei Elite tank II. The Sigelei Elite tank V2 is a temperature control sub ohm tank, that has a 3.2ml tank capacity and comes with two 0.3ohm Ni200 coils. You can also purchase 0.5ohm and 1.2ohm Kanthal coils.
The Elite V2 tank features hexagonal coils, that look similar to the Kanger subtank coils. However because of the threading in the top and bottom, they cannot be interchanged.
Sigelei have produced some outstanding box mods in the past, but have turned up a little bit late to the sub ohm tank game. However, I have high hopes for this tank. Let’s take a quick look below.

Vaping the Sigelei 0.3ohm Ni200 Coil
We used the Cloupor GT and our standard max VG e-juice by Fa-Q (75% VG) for vaping the Sigelei Elite tank.
The Sigelei Elite II vaped really solidly. We enjoyed the temperature anywhere from 180 – 260 degrees Celsius (356-500 Fahrenheit).
The vapor production was great and the flavor compared to the Ni200 coils on the Freemax Starre Pro and SMOK TCT. The flavor is great and and all in all it is a pretty solid vape. I honestly prefer Kanthal, but if you are interested in Ni200 coils, then the 0.3ohm from Sigelei are a solid and flavorful vape. The many juice flow holes on the hexagonal coils, means that the coils wick superbly and allow for plenty of juice flow.
Solid TC Vape
The TC vape on the 0.3ohm coils is very solid. Personally I don’t really dig Ni200 coils, but if Ni200 coils and TC is your thing, then the Sigelei Elite coils are solid purchases.
I have to say that when it comes to the Ni200 coils I have tried, the Sigelei Elite ones are right up there with the best I have tried. It’s a really solid vape as far as Ni200 coils go (I prefer Kanthal though, if you don’t already know!).
Good Air Flow
The air flow is nice and airy when fully open. The plastic air flow control can be easily moved to adjust the air flow to how you like it.
Good Build Quality
The build quality on the tank is solid and the threadings are all pretty smooth. I haven’t had any leakage issues as yet, but I have read one or two other people having had leakage issues. Leaking sub ohm tanks seem to be so hit and miss. I have tested countless tanks and not had leakages on some of them only for people to tell me theirs leaked like crazy!
Good Hexagonal Coils
The hexagonal coils are a little bit similar in shape to the Kanger coils. However, they can’t be interchanged. The coils have juice flow holes on each face of the hexagonal shaped coil. This allows for great wicking and juice flow. The coils are threaded on the top and bottom.
I haven’t been able to try the Kanthal coils but apparently those only feature two juice slots on them instead of 6 like on the Ni200 ones.
Price – $16.99
You can get the Sigelei Elite tank for just $16.99 from Efun below, which is really cheap. For me this is the biggest positive of this tank.
3.2ml E-Juice Capacity
The tank capacity is a bit disappointing given this tank doesn’t have a top fill either. If you want to fit more e-juice into the tank then screw on the coil to the chimney when refilling from the bottom. This will allow you to get more e-juice into the tank!
Drip Tip is Wider than a 510
If you want to use your own 510 drip tips with this tank, you will not be able to as the drip tip is wider than a 510.
No Top Fill
Top fill has become the norm these days, so it is disappointing to see Sigelei put no top fill on their “Elite” II tank.
Coil Heads Have no Labelled Resistances
My instructions and packaging indicted that the coils included were 0.5ohm and 1.2ohm. However, the two I received were both 0.3ohm Ni200s. I had to test both coils to see what their resistance was, as the coils themselves don’t mention any resistances!
Sigelei Elite Tank?! I think not. Unfortunately a more apt name for this tank would be Sigelei Average Tank. It is very cheap, when bought from Efun below, but other than that it is fairly bog standard, which isn’t good given the very competitive sub ohm tank market.
The Elite tank provides a really decent TC vape on the 0.3ohm Ni200 coils, but apart from that there isn’t anything that special about this sub ohm tank. It lacks top fill and the tank capacity isn’t enough to make up for that. The drip tip isn’t 510, there is no RBA and the coils have no resistance labelling – just too many things for me to dislike!
If you are after a cheap sub ohm tank for a decent TC vape then the Sigelei Elite tank will not disappoint. I cannot comment on the Kanthal coils as we did’t get to pick any up. Overall I was expecting a lot more from Sigelei with this tank.
