Are You Not Entertained?!?
Wismec’s OEM output continues with the Beyond Vape Centurion. After making a handful of well-received devices for Vape Forward, like the Vapor Flask Classic, Wismec has teamed up with American retailer Beyond Vape for the Centurion. This vaping device is a 100-watt temperature-control box-mod that works with both 26650 and 18650 batteries.
In some ways, the Beyond Vape Centurion by Wismec looks like the lovechild of the Vapor Flask Stout and the Vaporesso Target. It has the “gun handle” shape and comfortable ergonomics of the latter, while using the same Joyetech chip as the former. (Wismec is a subsidiary of Joyetech.) Aesthetics are, of course, subjective. For my part, I like that it isn’t as “extreme” looking as the Vaporesso Target, but prefer the elegant teardrop shape for the Vapor Flask Stout.
Is This Not Why You Are Here?!?
Under the hood, the Beyond Vape Centurion by Wismec has all the features you’d expect from a current temperature control mod. It has a standard power mode for kanthal and nichrome builds. For temperature control, it has presets for nickel, titanium, and stainless steel wire. Additionally, temperature can be completely customized in TCR (temperature coefficient of resistance) mode.
While using a 26650 battery, the Centurion can hit up to 100 watts. The device comes with an adapter for 18650 batteries. Wismec recommends not going past 75 watts when an 18650 battery is used. The device can handle 0.05 to 1.5-ohm builds in temperature-control mode, as well as 0.1 to 3.5-ohm builds in variable-wattage and power modes. The temperature range is 100-315C/200-600F.
First off, I’m thrilled that there’s a mod called the Centurion. The Gladiator-inspired section titles of this article made my week.
More importantly, on paper, the Beyond Vape Centurion by Wismec looks like it’ll be a very capable mod that should be available at a relatively low price. The Vapor Forward Vapor Flask Stout has an MSRP of $90 and I expect the Centurion to be available for less. Wismec has had great success with this chip in its Reuleaux RX200. The same chip is used in the Vapor Flask models Wismec has made for Vape Forward. If you dig the form factor of the Centurion and are looking for a temperature-control device that can take advantage of the ample capacity of 26650 batteries then this product is worth keeping an eye.
