The Shikra / Chronus Kit By Sigelei Previewed

The Sigelei Shikra / Chronus are two new kit releases from Sigelei – both have the same operating characteristics but differ in the materials they are made from.

I will hold my hands up I have recently been slagging off Sigelei for the horrible designs their new devices have been sporting recently – for instance the Sobra and Sibra F are horrific.shikra chronus components

But now I will eat a plateful of humble pie because these two new kits are absolutely flipping stunning – I am in love big style!

So the Shikra kit is a limited edition and has a Zinc Alloy/Stainless steel body. The Chronus has a Zinc Alloy/Aluminium Alloy body.shikra chronus range

Also the Shikra kit includes a decorative coil head cover and has TFR and a clock. Otherwise both kits are pretty much the same apart from appearance.shikra v chronus

The mods feature a round TFT display, joystick control and will output up to 200W from dual 18650 batteries (not included).shikra chronus features

The kit tank is a top fill and includes the MS-H coil head which is 0.2ohm and best at 80-110W. There are also MS-M (0.2ohm) and MS (0.25ohm) coil heads which are compatible.shikra chronus coils

There are 5 types of tank glass available so you can customise the capacity up to 5.5ml maximum.shikra chronus gold

Will you be ordering the Sigelei Shikra / Chronus Kit? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

My name is Michelle - I am 44 and an engineer and Technical Author by trade. I started vaping many years ago in the days of Tornado tanks, Ego batteries and Variable Voltage. My journey in vaping began again a few years ago and have started to move up in the shiny shiny gadget department and love vaping! I have finally stopped smoking as of June 2019 and that is all thanks to vaping! 20mg Nicotine Salts are my hero! Oh and I am partial to a nice pod mod!


  1. I orginally bought the chronus mod 2 weeks ago and during that time I was very impressed with the mod and the battery life from the 18650’s the tank wasnt my favorite so I switched it up to the crown 4 tank which complimented the mod very well and tonight the mod died I had just changed my coils out and when i screwed the tank onto the mod it seemed to break as it wouldn’t fire at all the silver part where you screw the tank in seemed to have came out of the mod that being said i took it to my vape shop where i bought it and they hooked me up with the shikra mod. Now this mod is top notch it feels much more solid and the added features is a great plus I even like this tank quite a bit its bigger than the lighter chronus I will be putting my crown 4 tank on here tonight to see how it holds up but I believe that this mod is going to be with me for a long period of time it is solid and very well made if I have any issues I will update you guys. I have the gunmetal stainless mod and it is amazing the only thing I dont quite understand is the power settings but hey I’m learning as I go if anyone is looking for a new mod I’d steer clear of the chronus and pay the 10 bucks for the shikra it’s well worth your money folks

    • Wow so quite a difference between the Shikra and the Chronus versions?
      One thing to note is with the Shikra Kit I think you get an adaptor so you can use other brand coils in the Shikra tank?
      Sadly I haven’t had my hands on either of these kits so I cant tell you which coils are compatible? But might be worth experimenting with some other coils see if the tank will perform better?

    • Did you like the coils which came in the kit?
      If so they are the MS-H coils apparently – doing a quick search on Google have found a few UK stockists selling them – I havent used these online stores by the way – so I cannot comment on their service…

      As for the other coils – there is also the MS coil which appears to be a standard wire type coil – which should give decent flavour – that will need to run at 40-80W plus there is the MS-M which is a mesh coil – usually I would prefer mesh over standard coils as you generally get better flavour and coil life. With mesh coils you do have to make sure you fill the tank and leave them for 10-15 mins before vaping on them for the first time to make sure the coil has fully absorbed the e-liquid.

      Also the Sigelei website says you can use other brand coils with the Shikra kit if you have the adaptor (not supplied in the Chronus version) but as I haven’t had one of these kits to try I cant help you with which other coils are compatible sorry.
      Hope this helps
