Introduction – The Sinuous V200 Kit by Wismec
The Wismec Sinuous V200 e-cig mod is the latest addition to the popular sinuous range; it is a dual battery kit with the Amor NSE tank as a topper.
Wismec are very well established and very popular electronic cigarette manufacturer, they have bought us the likes of the Sinuous range: – Ravage 230, P80, V80 and Solo with other ranges in their catalogue such as the Reuleaux and CB Ranges.
This is a colourful budget combo but how do they vape as a kit? And what do we think of Wismec’s new Sinuous V200; let’s go take a close up detailed look……………………
This kit was sent to us for the purpose of this review. As always my thoughts and views are my own.

Design and Build Quality
Amor NSE Tank
Made of aluminium, plastic and stainless steel, the tank breaks into 4 parts, including the coil.The design and quality of the tank are both fine however, to me, it has a cheap feel it.
The tank has a measurement of 46mm high with a 26mm diameter, the tank will hold 3ml/2ml dependent on your country.
Some versions of the NSE tank have an option to be able to lock the top cap mine hasn’t.
The base is made primarily of SS, the airflow control ring (AFC) ring is made from aluminium. The base has all the normal information laser etched along with a well turned 810 connection thread with silver plated connection pin. The bottom airflow is fully adjustable with dot airflow (AF) for MTL vaping Plus a wide direct to lung (DTL) slot.The coil in the tank I received was over tightened when fitted at the factory.
This section is in one piece, The coloured tank (mine is green) is made of a plastic material, the coil guide is also plastic as is the top fill port.The internal chimney section is made of SS that has threading for the coil to screw on too, the fill port cover is on a slide and is made of aluminium.
The coloured drip tip is made of plastic and is a 510 style tip that has O-rings around the shaft.
2 coils are supplied with the kit WS-M (mesh) 0.27Ω for DTL and WS04 (round wire) 1.3Ω for MTL.
Sinuous V200 Mod
The V200 is incredibly lightweight the frame is made from aluminium and the side panels that are made from a transparent PolyCarbonate material.
The mod measures approx 88mm by 53mm by 26mm and is Powered by Avatar chip.
The mod will fire from 1 to 200w and will also fire in temperature control with a range of 100-315°C / 200-600°F.
The V200 has the standard couple of menus to control settings but nothing we have not seen from Wismec before, for a budget mod I think the design has been done well and the build quality is quite good. While the mod has an aesthetically pleasing look to it, sadly like the tank, it has a cheap feel to it.
The mod has a dual battery compartment to hold 2 x 18650 batteries, Wismec have listened to reviewers moaning about the orientation marks for the batteries and have printed these in white on a dark background (full marks for that Wismec lol).The battery sled is plastic with gold plated connection points and battery ribbon. The battery door, which is see through plastic, has a honeycomb pattern moulded into it with Wismec branding.
The door has 2 magnets that marry up to their partners hidden under the sled, the magnets have no movement to them once the door is in place.The other panel is a duplicate of the battery door although it has been sealed to the mod. One side of the frame has “sinuousV200” laser printed in black.The front face of the device has SS fire and adjustment buttons along with a 0.91in OLED Screen which is fairly bright and displays all the relevant info.
A micro USB charge/update port finishes things off.
The top of the mod holds the SS centre 510 connection, the threads are well turned and held in position by 2 Phillips head screws.
Basic Quick Start Guide
Advice; empty the tank before changing coils.
Amor NSE Tank
- Choose which coils suits you best and screw it into the base
- Pre-wick the coil by dripping liquid onto the cotton
- Reassemble the tank
- Open the fill port and fill with your desired liquid
- Let the tank stand for a few minutes so the coil can soak up more liquid

How Does The Wismec Sinuous V200 Kit Perform?
For this review I have installed the 0.27Ω mesh coil into the NSE tank and filled with DR Frost Candy Cane.
While the whole kit is very light weight it makes for a nice handful, the combo has a stylish look to it and would appeal to most of those who like dual battery mods.
It is possible even with the 0.27Ω mesh coil installed to get a fairly good mouth to lung style vape by setting the AF to 1 dot and 25W.
While the warmth of the vapour is cool the flavour is quite good. Opening the AF up to 2 dot holes and bumping the wattage up to 35w allows for a restricted direct to lung style vape, the flavour again is good and the vapour a little warmer.
45 to 55w
Opening the AF up to the DTL wide slot at 45W felt a little underpowered for me and while the flavour was very good the vapour production was a little bit of a letdown.
Moving to 55W was better, it produced a nice warm vape with good flavour and the vapour production was a lot better.
60 to 65W
I don’t like to push stock coils to their limit or over it but I did test the tank/coils at 60w and 65W for a few toots; I found the coil performed ok at 60W but at 65W I experienced hot splash back in my mouth yuck!
As normal I tested the mod with an RDA my Drop Dead with 0.17Ω SS316L dual coils at 420f and the same liquid. To change the watts while in TC click the fire button 4 times, I set mine on 65w. The result was a very cloudy vape and flavour wasn’t half bad either.
Higher Watts Testing
With my Drop Dead attached I wacked the wattage up to 100w while well outside my comfort zone, the flavour was acceptable with things getting incredibly cloudy.
I did find that when the mod gets warm the fire button has a habit of sticking, not every time but it happened to me 3 time in 1hr. A simple flick and the button came out; so worth mentioning!
While the tank works great I do feel that the coils are slightly under powered especially the 0.27Ω. I mean, what’s the point of including coils that are only rated up to 60w with a mod that can fire up to 200w.
The slide fill port will get loose the longer you use the tank, I found while I was altering the airflow or removing the tank from the V200 mod I could feel the port start to open. A minor bug I know but I felt it worth mentioning.
- Good tank quality and design
- Fair tank flavour
- Fair vapour quality
- Good mod quality and design
- Easy to use kit
- Light weight
- Good looking pairing
- Battery orientation mark
- Loose fill port cap after prolonged use
- Fire button can stick
- The whole kit has a cheap feel to it
Final Review Verdict
So after taking a detailed look at the Wismec Sinuous V200 kit, I would say it’s lightweight and a stylish looking budget kit, maybe with too cheaper feel to it. It still it does the job asked of it though!
Wismec have impressed me by the way they have listened to reviewers about the battery orientation marks let hope they keep that up! The only real big letdown for me is the stated wattage of the coils, a lower ohm coil would have been welcome.
Would I buy the Wismec V200 kit again if lost or damaged? The mod definitely but the tank would be another case of “oh dear put it to one side”.
