The Eleaf iStick Pico Plus Kit is a new release updating two popular Eleaf ranges – the Pico box mod and Melo sub ohm tank.

Eleaf iStick Pico PlusThere have been so many Pico mods in the past – I won’t waste your time listing them all out here but this version does seem to hark back to the original Pico 75W.

More Details On The Eleaf iStick Pico Plus Kit…

The two main components of the kit are the new Pico plus mod and the new Melo 4S tank…Eleaf iStick Pico Plus components

The first thing which caught my eye design wise is the odd looking balcony which sits above the fire button.Eleaf iStick Pico Plus balcony

Yes this looks weird and wonky but it does mean that unlike a lot of the Pico range this device is able to accept tanks of 25mm and less. Some of the earlier range had issues with the battery cap preventing larger diameter tanks from physically fitting on the mod.Eleaf iStick Pico Plus 25mm tank compatible

The battery cap idea is still the same and opening this reveals the battery compartment which is suitable for a single 18650 which of course in not included.Eleaf iStick Pico Plus battery

The output like the original is a maximum of 75W in Variable Wattage mode, but you also can select Temperature Control or Bypass user modes.

A small monochrome OLED screen is located on the side of the mod but the size of the screen is not specified.pico plus screen

Also provided is a USB Type C port which again is not found on some of the previous versions and allows up to 2A charging.Eleaf iStick Pico Plus usb type c

Looking at the Melo 4S tank now – this is similar to the Melo 4 which I loved in the Melo 4 kit with some updated coils.

This uses the EC coil range – in particular the new AST-EC-A (All Time Stable Technology) made from Super Austenitic Stainless Steel.pico plus ast

The AST material apparently offers a longer coil life and purer flavour and is also found in some of the recent Joyetech kits such as the recent Ego Pod AST.Eleaf iStick Pico Plus ec-a coils

There are 3 AST coils available

  • 0.5ohm AST – 20-40W (included in kit)
  • 0.3ohm AST – 30-50W (included in kit)
  • 0.15ohm AST – 40-70W (available separately)

When using the AST coils the Pico Plus mod also monitors the coils to make sure they do not burn from a lack of e-liquid.pico plus coil protection

Refilling is taken care of via the top cap – this is different according to which model the tank is, on the Childproof version this is a sliding cap whereas on the Regular version has a quick turn removable top cap.pico plus filling

The base of the tank features the airflow adjustment control ring.

There are 5 colours to choose from: Silver, Pearl White, Grey, Black and Rose Gold.
