Mini By Name But is it Mighty in Nature?
As the name suggests, the Wismec Reuleaux RX Mini is a smaller version in almost every aspect to the extremely popular and solid performing Reuleaux RX200.
Wismec’s manufacturing and Jaybo’s design has proved a match made in heaven generally and the Reuleaux RX mini kit is certainly pleasing to the eye – but how does it vape?
Let’s take a closer look.
The Reuleaux RX Mini Kit was purchased by Ecigclick for the purpose of this review. As always our views are our own.

Reuleaux RX Mini Key Features
They’ve managed to pack a whole host of features into what is a pretty dinky – if a little chunky – vape mod.
First up it’s capable of 80 watts of vaping power and in temperature control mode can run between 200 and 600F.
There are enough settings to keep even the most demanding vaper happy with VW, Bypass, TC-Ni, TC-Ti, TC-SS and TCR modes.
It’s powered by an inbuilt 2100mAh battery and the firmware is upgrade-able.
There is of course the option to switch the leather grip colours via stickers but of more interest to experienced vapers will be the addition of a pre-heat function which you can adjust to get power to the coil that might need ramping up faster.
The OLED screen pretty much fills the front on the mod and is bright and vivid. Just under that is the micro USB port [used for charging and upgrades] – and you can vape whilst charging.
So where are the up and down buttons I hear you ask…
They are on the base of the mod – more on that placement later.
For those who like designy things you can also enter ‘logo mode’ and either download Wismecs or create your own – this mode can be turned on and off at will.
And for those not wanting to shine a vaping light wherever they go – full stealth mode can also be chosen.
Wismec has built in a raft of safety features including overall protection of over-charging, over-current and over-discharging.
Like I said – a ton of ‘stuff’ for a smallish device.
Reux Mini Tank Key Features
It’s a nice looking stainless steel – glass 2ml capacity tank with a simple screw off top fill.
It has decent bottom airflow control that is hidden behind what I guess you could call a kind of ‘vanity’ ring.
Good to see Wismec has included x2 0.2ohm x coils – one already installed.
The tank disassembles easily for cleaning and coil swapping is indeed almost ‘clean-hands ‘and is as simple as turning the tank upside down and removing it from the base – no need to drain your e-liquid!
Design and Build Quality
The build here is truly exceptional.
The threads are silky – the tank is as pretty as a picture with funky and functional knurling/grips and the classy Jaybo signature etched into the chimney.
The mod itself is indeed a smaller version of the Reuleaux RX200 and I have to say it does look bloody gorgeous.
Having never held its big brother all I can say about this little baby version is it fits nicely in the hand and is a pleasure to hold – however and here’s why I wouldn’t class this as a nano/stealth mod – it is bloody heavy!
It feels like a solid chunk of metal and weighs like one – I don’t have any scales but holding it with my Coolfire IV TC100 in the other hand it felt as if it outweighed it by quite a lot.
I’ve called it ‘chunky’ and indeed it is with the diamond/lozenge shape not fitting very comfortably in my jeans pocket and bulging in my jacket and coat pockets.
I’ve likened it to a classy desktop paperweight that you can also vape on!
The placement of the up and down [left and right] buttons on the base I have to say slightly annoyed me at first.
I don’t bite my fingernails but I do keep them short and the recessed buttons can be a pain to press at times – but honestly?
After a day I soon got the knack!
How Does the Reuleaux RX Mini Kit Perform?
OK let me get this out the way first – nice mod shame about the tank.
I haven’t used any of the Wismec Reux tanks so I have no idea how they perform.
The little guy they’ve put with this is tiny and with the shrink down I have a feeling they’ve shrunk the taste factor too.
There’s no wattage edged on the coils so I guess it’s left to you to find the sweet spot.
At 50 watts not much was happening flavour wise though cloudage was OK.
After a lot of trial and error I got a taste [of sorts] around 65watts and clouds were good using an 80/20 e-liquid.
Don’t even bother trying these stock coils at 80watts – an instant dry hit and then burning [yuk!] despite a well filled tank and well broken in coils.
However the device itself is a great vape.
I slapped on a variety of tanks and drippers and this little guy [especially in pre-heat mode on new built coils] really does know its job and do the business.
I tried it in temp mode on stainless steel coils and had no dry hits whatsoever.
Anyone who knows the Reuleaux boards will be pleased to know this is the exact same set-up.
Once you get used to the up and down buttons being on the base and once you re-train your fingers lol – moving around the menu is delightfully easy.
- X5 on the power button on and off
- Fire and left button puts you in and out of stealth mode
- Press both buttons to lock the device
- Flip the screen – whilst device off press up and down button together
- Press fire button x3 to enter modes menu scroll using base buttons
- Choose TCR memory settings via up then down button when in temp mode
- For pre-heat function hold down fire button and right base button
- Reset device via pinhole on base
There’s a ton of other features but the user manual will fill you in with those.
What I Like
I love the design of this kit – Jaybo certainly designs some good looking vape stuff.
The screen is wonderful – extremely crisp and clear.
I found the menu extremely easy to manoeuvre around and all buttons were responsive and pleasantly clicky.
The fact its firmware upgradeable and you can mess about with logos and faux leather stickers means you can personalize it somewhat.
Powering up to 80watts means with the right tank or coils you’ll get a superb vape.
What I Don’t Like
As far as the kit as whole goes I don’t like the tank – for me it’s OK cloud wise but it feels like a flavour killer and the stock coils can’t seem to handle the higher wattage.
It is very weighty for its size and not at all pocket friendly as it really does bulge out!
And key to me as a dislike is the internal battery – it doesn’t seem to have much life in it!
Sure it charges very quickly but over the week I’ve used it I’ve managed less than half a day vaping at 65watts – and that’s steady not chain vaping.
Final Review Verdict
Take off the tank and you have a great little mod – if you don’t mind chunky and weighty.
It really is an all singing all dancing little star and I love it.
From its design to its jam packed features hidden behind a superb screen it’s a lovely piece of kit.
Like I said – shame about the tank – but the mod can be bought as a stand-alone 😉
