Series B Tilt by Jacvapour – Seriously Small Mod But How Does It Perform?
It has been a couple of months since the Jacvapour Series B Tilt was announced and my first impressions from their promo video were good with the preview showing us a mod that looked different to anything I had seen on the e cig market.
It sits alongside the excellent Series B DNA75 mod and Series S vape pen that proved to be a top quality bit of kit. So to finally get it in hand is a pretty exciting thing for me! I know I’m a little sad!
Lets Get on with the Jacvapour Series B Tilt review.
In The Box
The Series B Tilt comes in a well designed, compact box and contains the following –
- 1 x JAC Series B Tilt 40 W Mod
- 1 x USB charging cable
- 1 x In depth instruction manual
it’s a breath of fresh air here to see Jacvapour have included a very easy to understand instruction manual. Even new vapers should be able to follow along with no issues.
Looks & Build Quality of the Series B Tilt
I’m going to jump in straight away here and just say it. This is the best looking vape mod I have seen to date. I know everyone has different tastes to what they like but the Series B Tilt is a beautiful little thing. And when I say little it’s tiny but still feels a nice weight with the battery installed.
I don’t have the biggest hands but it fits perfectly into palm allowing it to be completely concealed. Perfect for taking with me on a night out. For those that have had an Eleaf iStick 20 or 30W the size is similar although the Tilt is a touch taller.
The main body is finished in a black rubberised material that is a joy to hold in the hand and this is complemented well with a brushed stainless steel base and magnetic battery cover.
The power and selector buttons have the same rubberised finish and sit well in the body of the mod. The buttons have a nice ‘click’ to them that a BMW engineer would be proud of. There is a touch of movement as would be expected but the good news is there is ZERO rattle which is only a good thing.
The OLED screen fits curved into the edge of the body and the screen itself is as bright and clear.
The magnetic battery cover snaps into place easily making it a breeze to switch out batteries. There is a vent hole on the cover as well as on the base.
Jacvapour have aimed for quality and it’s quite obvious when you hold this mod in your hand they have succeeded. It feels like a high end product and looks like a high end product.
I haven’t forgotten the ‘TILT‘
This was the part of the design that really sets it apart in the looks department. The top of the series B is cut at an angle to allow the tank to tilt to the side a touch. Does it make a huge difference to the quality of the vape?
Not really but it does allows for slightly better ergonomics when vaping. And I actually think it looks fantastic.
- 5 – 40W
- Can handle atomizer resistance down to 0.2ohms
- Powered by 18650 battery (recommended 20amp for pass through function and sub ohm tank use)
- Magnetic battery cover
- Spring loaded positive pin
- Overheat protection cut off
- Overcharge and high drain protection
- Cut off if power button is pressed for more than 15 seconds
- Tank short display
- 5 Click on/off
- Selection lock – Press both ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons simultaneously for 3 seconds to lock/unlock
- Standby mode – Kicks in 10 seconds after last use
- Screen Flip – 5 click power off – Press both ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons for 3 seconds to flip
- 3 Clicks of the power button changes variable voltage / wattage selection
The JAC Series B Tilt has all the features you would expect from a vape mod.
OLED Screen Display & Function
- Remaining battery capacity
- Coil resistance
- Current wattage and voltage
The screen displays the above information clearly, even in bright daylight and is easy to get to grips with even for those new to this type of e cig device.
Any Downsides To The design?
The only thing that I don’t like about this device is that the micro USB charging port is on the base of the box mod.
Not the end of the world and certainly not something that stops me enjoying the Series B! I just like to stand my mods up when charging and using the pass through function.
How Does The Jacvapour Series B Tilt Perform?
The Jacvapour Series B Tilt has the ability to power upto 40W and I had no issues reaching this with the Atlantis 2 with a 0.3ohm coil.
This is a great tank that pairs well with the Series B and performed a treat between 25-28W.
Of course there are a number of things that can effect your vape and where you will set your wattage or volts. The main advice to give is to start on a low setting and work your way up until you find your preferred setting.
Cycling through the wattage settings is steady but it does have an auto scroll feature so when you hold the ‘+’ or ‘-‘ selector buttons for a couple of seconds it will automatically continue through the watts. Not something I’m a particular fan of but like the micro usb port this isn’t a major issue, more a personal preference.
This is an area that needs careful consideration especially for those new to vape mods that require replaceable 18650 flat top batteries.
To use the Tilt for sub ohm vaping purposes or to use it in pass through mode (vape while charging) you need to have a 20amp (or above) 18650 battery, these can handle the output needed to vape at the higher wattage and low resistances.

In short don’t go for the cheapest batteries you can find, buy quality. Jacvapour have compatible batteries so I would recommend you add these to your order.
I am using a 3000mah 20amp battery from Jac Vapour and the life of the battery – moderate vaping with a 0.5ohm coil – was great giving me around 1.5 days use.
If you are using the likes of the Aerotank / Aspire Nautilus tanks with 1.8ohm coils then you will likely get a lot more life from the battery
Final Review Verdict
If you read the full Series B tilt review then you will no doubt have guessed I love this vape mod.
It is without doubt the best box mod (for my tastes) in terms of design, size and quality I have used to date and the ‘Tilt‘ of the tank looks cool. Even the USB charging cable looks good. It has a deserved spot in our best vape mod / box mod list for 2017.
I found myself using this out and about with it slipping into my pocket easily. It will suit most levels of vaper.
Of course if you are running power hungry tanks or building your own coils then the 40W max output likely won’t fit in with your needs.
The price (Be sure to use our Jacvapour discount code – For money off) is very good for the quality you get. Do keep in mind you will also need a battery with this.
- Superb build quality
- Extremely small form factor makes it easy to carry around
- Overall design and looks are excellent
- ‘Tilt’ feature looks good
- Simple to use
- Ideal for most levels of vaper
- Replaceable 18650 battery with easy access magnetic cover
- Fires down to 0.2ohm so compatible with wide variety of sub ohm tanks
- Spring loaded 510 connector means a flush fit for your tanks
The Not So Good
- Micro USB charge port is on the base of the device so can’t stand mod up while charging (not an issue really, more a personal preference)
- No TC option so advanced vapers looking for this function, this isn’t for you.
- 40W isn’t going to be enough power for certain vapers
