The Wismec RX2 21700 is the one of the latest from a brand known for manufacturing some pretty good e-cigs with innovative designs, along with their long time American designer Jaybo they have developed a strong and stable partnership.

*Tip let the tank stand for a few minutes, so the cotton can soak up more liquid. To change your coil head you will need to empty any remaining liquid out first.

How Does The Wismec RX2 21700 Perform?

I tested the Wismec RX2 21700 with both the included 21700 batteries and 18650 batteries with the included sleeves.

First let’s take a quick look at the basic functions.

Basic menu and system operation

  • X5 clicks on and off.
  • X3 clicks and right adjustment button to change your fire mode – Power, TC, TCR Function.
  • To change your wire type under Temp control, left adjustment button then hit the right button to choose Ni, Ti, SS.
  • Under Temperature control X3 clicks fire button, left adjustment button and left button to highlight, right to change your, Power, Lock your Ohms, and change your Puff count to Amps or Screen.
  • To flip screen while off hold together both adjustment buttons.
  • To turn on/off the key lock while the device is on hold both adjustments buttons.
  • To turn logo on /off hold the right adjustment button and fire button together toggle the right adjustment button to enter Preheat and Time out function.
  • To turn on/off stealth function hold both fire button and left adjustment button.

Using the RX2 21700 with the Gnome tank

I filled the Gnome tank with a coffee blended DIY e-liquid; using the pre installed 0.4 coil.

20w – Airflow cut down to almost closed I was able to get a good mouth to lung style of vape, the vapour decent, yet cool with plenty of flavour.

55w – Airflow wide open DTL style the vape was warm and tasty a very cloudy amount of vapour was produced.

I then changed up to dual 24g SS316 Clapton coils at 0.16ohms in my Vandy Vape Bonza RDA with the same liquid.wismec 21700 with bonsa

65w – Was pleasantly warm with lots of flavour and creamy vapour

90w – 100w – While out of my comfort zone the delivery of vapour was tremendous. Although the vape was quite a lot hotter than I normally prefer so I wasn’t able to enjoy the flavour this high but would say it was ok.

Temp Control

Testing in Temp control with SS316 wire at 100w and 420f delivered a very good amount of vapour and flavour; over 150 at 420f however the mod kept displaying “Protect”, Wismec have now released a firmware update for the RX2 21700 that can be found here, to solve this issue

Battery Life

Battery life is extremely good with this mod at 55w using the Gnome tank the 21700 batteries lasted me a good 10 hours!

With the 18650’s I was able to use the RX2 for just under 5 hours at the same wattage.

Pro’s

RX2 21700

  • Works well in VW
  • Work well in TC after the firmware update is done
  • Very simple to operate with a familiar operating menu
  • Good design and form factor of this mod
  • Comfortable in the hand

Gnome Tank

  • Very Good flavour and vapour at 55W-65W
  • No leaking or dry hits
  • Excellent tank for low to mid power users

Cons

RX2 21700

  • Slightly on the heavy side
  • Firmware update is recommended – Before the update I was receiving the “Protect” warning with the RX2 21700 in temp control

Gnome tank

  • Feels underpowered for the mod – Lower rated coils would have been better.

Final Review Verdict

Wismec and Jaybo have done it again the RX2 21700 is a great looking device that I will use constantly the only thing that lets the kit down in my opinion is the Gnome tank while ok for lower to mid power users; they have not taken into account the sheer power of the device for those that vape at higher wattages.

Would I the Wismec RX2 21700 if it was lost or damaged, yes certainly for the mod but no for the Gnome tank!

Hi my name is Kevin, I started vaping back in 2009 mainly because my little boy at 3 years old was starting to copy the way daddy smoked a cigarette! In these past years I have gained a fair amount of experience with different types of vaping hardware, I am not an expert by any means I'm just a normal guy who has made a hobby from vaping! Being disabled, vaping has given me a gateway to meeting people from all different walks of life, many of those I would not have met under other circumstances. The way I look at my reviews is, if I can convince just one person to give up the stinky’s my job is done. I class myself as a tinkerer as I like to take things apart to see how they work and put them back together, yes that includes e-cigarette mods! One day I would like to be able to design my own mod. I am a dedicated father, and husband to my sweetheart of nearly 30 years! Family to me comes before anything else.
