Asvape Gabriel 80W Stabilized Wood Box Mod #asvapegabrielboxmod
Posted by Asvape Tech on Thursday, December 14, 2017
The mod body is made from stabilised wood – which is a type of wood mixed with colour resins to protect and enhance its appearance. It says on the Asvape website that over 30 hours of grinding and 24 casting processes go into each mod. That will explain the premium price then!
The mod will output up to 80W and there are various user modes – Variable Wattage, Variable Control Mode (power curve adjustment), By-pass and Temperature control.
Asvape want to point out the chip powering this is made by them and is the first independent 80W smart chip. The marketing talk says the chip will learn vaping habits and identify different atomisers too. Clever innit!
You will need 1×18650 battery to power this which isn’t included in the kit. The battery is installed into the body by removing the threaded battery cap in the base.
A 0.91inch colour screen is mounted in the wood part of the mod and metal plates in stainless steel or gold finishes are attached to the top and bottom of the mod.
Just look at the beautiful presentation box this comes in!
Now the colour choice may be a bit of a sore point. As with all natural products the colour will always vary. There is a choice of the Stainless Steel or Gold finish trims – however the wood part appears to be sold in “Random Colours”. I don’t like this very much as I really wouldn’t want a brown one!
