Today we are looking at the Wismec Luxotic NC Kit, another collaboration between Wismec and JayBo.
The kit comprises of the Luxotic NC mod which is a resin and stainless steel device that uses 20700s or 18650 batteries. You can also use it in either a series or parallel configuration with the flick of a switch at the top.
It also comes with the Wismec Guillotine V2 RDA which is a dual coil, 24mm RDA that has a guillotine clamp system which works very well!
The Luxotic NC comes in two different colours; a green resin or a red resin, but I would assume that every device is different, so hopefully you will never see two that are exactly the same!
This kit was sent to me for the purposes of review – As always my opinions are honest and my own.

Wismec Luxotic NC Build Quality, Design & Performance
Guillotine v2 RDA:
The drip tip is 810 sized and made from a resin to match the resin on the device. You also get an Ultem version in the spares if you wish to use that.
Top Cap & Airflow Barrel:
The top cap is made from stainless steel and has two ultem ‘blades on it. This is for when you flip the airflow barrel upside down from bottom airflow to side airflow, then you can adjust the airflow by twisting the top cap.The airflow barrel is made from stainless steel, it has a JayBo logo on it as well as two airflow slots.
The deck has a dual post design with clamps that are adjusted with 4 grub screws at the top.The juice well is extremely deep, so if you’re prone to over dripping or squonking, leaking shouldn’t be an issue.
Guillotine v2 RDA – Overall:
Overall, the construction and look of this RDA is pretty good! I like how it looks and how it performs. The flavour is pretty good using the coils supplied. I would say that the flavour and airflow is a lot better when you have it side airflow mode though. It just seems a lot smoother and purer. Overall, A great functioning RDA, but not overly amazing flavour.
The Wismec Luxotic NC Mod:
At the top of the device we have the 510 connector that is located toward the back side of the device. It has stainless steel threading and a 510 pin with a nice amount of throw to it! I would say you could fit 25mm atomisers on here, maximum.Opposite that we have a switch. Switch it to the left to use in parallel mode which outputs a maximum of 4.2v which is determined by the resistance of the build in your RDA. By switching it to the right you can use it in series mode and can adjust the voltage from 1.3v to 5.3v on the dial located on the front.Working our way to the front of the Wismec Luxotic NC, we have a square button that is slightly spongy, but does have a click to it. Below that we have the dial which is used to adjust the voltage in Series Mode from 1.3v to 5.3vOn either side of the device we have a combination of resin and stainless steel. Upon arrival, my resin section moved up and down slightly, but this was easily rectified by tightening the screws inside the battery compartment.At the base of the Luxotic NC we have the battery door which has 6 holes for venting as well as branding etched into the metal.Opening the door is pretty easy, just push down and slide it outwards to reveal the bottom of the battery door which is clearly labelled with the polarity.In this device you can use 20700 batteriesOr 18650 batteries by using the battery sleeves supplied
The Luxotic NC Mod – Overall:
Overall, I like the look of the device. It looks bloody good! Function wise, it’s great as well! I like that you can change from parallel to series, as well as the adjustability of the voltage in series mode.
Now, the full 8.4v can only be achieved by switching the switch to the left, locking the device by pressing the fire button 5 times and then pressing and holding the button for a few seconds until the light flashes white. You’ll then be in unregulated series mode which outputs the maximum 8.4v!
Obviously, do this at your own risk!
Building on the Guillotine v2 RDA
In this review, I thought I’d add a build tutorial to help people get set up using the coils supplied. You’ll be needing the RDA (obviously) two coils, cotton, the supplied allen key tool, coil snips, ceramic tweezers and of course, a bottle of E-LIQUID!
So, first off, start by backing off all 4 grub screws on top of the RDA. Three quarters of the way out should do it, and then you’ll need to turn the Guillotine v2 upside down as the clamps are being held down by gravity.
Then get your two coils and insert them into the deck and clamp them down. Cut off the excess from the legs and then double check the grub screw.
You’ll want them placed centrally in the deck, this picture should help you out.
Now check the resistance, to make sure there aren’t any shorts!
And get firing those coils so that they’re heating evenly from the inside out. You may need to pinch and strum them to get them doing this.
Next, you’ll have to let them cool down for a bit as there is a lot of heat left in the coils.
Once they’re cool to the touch, get your preferred wicking material, roll them into tubes and pie them through the coils. Cut off the excess cotton just outside the deck so that they will just touch the deck of the RDA.
Now you can poke the wicks into the deck and get them juiced up!
I have found that pulsing the coils whilst putting juice over them helps the cotton absorb the e-liquid. But please make sure that the wick inside the coils has some juice on before pulsing the coils, otherwise you’ll have to re-wick again!
Last but not least… ENJOY!
- Premium look & feel
- Good flavour and airflow
- Different firing options
- Multiple safety features
- Loose panel (easily fixed)
- Not for beginners
- Gap below RDA without beauty ring
Final Review Verdict
To round things off, I would say that the Wismec Luxotic NC is a beautiful looking vape mod, but it’s not for newbies or the faint hearted.
The Guillotine v2 RDA produces some nice flavour, has great airflow options and is super easy to build on.
