Wellon Transformer Kit Intro

If you’re wondering who in the blazes Wellon is, join the club. They’re a new company to the vaping market and this is their vape mod kit. At first glance, the Transformer kit is a standard tank/mod system, but upon further inspection of the design there is more than meets the eye.

Notable remarks

The Wellon Transfomer kit is an inexpensive 75-watt mod and 4 mL subohm tank combo (full price yet to be disclosed). It’s available in black, silver, copper, or brass finishes, this zinc alloy mod is TC compatible with presets for Ni, Ti, SS, and a temperature range of 200-600F. It uses a single-18650 replaceable battery with a load minimum of 0.1 ohm. A cool feature that first piqued my interest was the small hinged magnetic door that covers the +/- buttons. That prevents accidental power adjustments, and it makes for a more aesthetically “finished” look. It’s a simple yet nifty little addition to this industrial and ergonomic mod. It’s looking good so far… especially for new kit from a new manufacturer. But for me, the intrigue lies within its tank.

The Transformer Tank is relatively tall at ~48 mm, and it has a lot of parts by most standards. It holds 4.0 mL of juice which is a decent capacity these days (no mention of a TPD conversion). The coils – available in 0.2 ohm and 0.5 ohm – appear to be the Joyetech Cubis style of coil heads. Threading to the chimney system instead of the base, this type of coil head was popularized due to its ease of swapping and its virtual leak-proof nature.

The Transformer Kit is a complete subohm setup from a brand new manufacturer.

The Transformer Tank is (sorta) a double decker tank. Its a top-fill, 4 mL tank divided in two by an “airflow base” that somehow also feeds the bottom tank. The top tank houses the chimney, and the bottom tank holds the coil head — but again, they’re separated by an “airflow base”. This is not your typical sub ohm tank. In a way, it looks like a sub ohm tank version of the Gragas RDTA, but no crazy pump-action here to saturate the wicks. From what I can tell, it’s just normal wicking like a Cubis coil (juice feeding from the bottom of the coil). And although it doesn’t look like it, the Transformer has a unique airflow. It’s sorta like a top airflow because it’s above the coil, but it’s not typical top-fed airflow because it also sits below the chimney. I don’t know what to call it! But if you have seen the Wellon diagram, the airflow also looks like it has a long way to travel, which will likely reduce heat and maybe flavor. We shall see.

I just got an email from Wellon that the coils are dual Nichrome coils (this was in none of the press releases I saw). Aside from Kangertech SSOC NiCr coils, I can’t find any other sub ohm tanks that use solely NiCr. Do you have thoughts on NiCr coils for a kit like this? I think confusion could ensue for some with Ni vs. NiCr on a TC mod. I wonder why Wellon didn’t opt for SS since it goes both ways and the mod does TC. Either which way, it’s a good looking mod with an interesting tank design. I am very interested at least in trying it, but not so sure I’d be itchin’ to buy it without seeing a few reviews first.
