Appearance and design

It is impossible to say that Dovpo used a new form factor when creating a box mod, and it is unlikely that many vapers would appreciate such a solution. It is made on the principle of a standard rectangular mod with slightly beveled nodes (in this case it reminds Drag very much). Practice shows that most vapers like this shape the most. At the same time, the ergonomics of the device in combination with a wide horizontally stretched fire button is quite decent.

It is made of zinc alloy, so it has a fairly light weight. But zinc alloy is not everywhere side panels are made of plastic. An important feature of the panels is their color, because in addition to the traditional black, two variants of blue with a somewhat three-dimensional pattern are used. We can confidently say that this solution will definitely interest many people, as they are bored with standard colors, and vapers want to customize their devices, making them unique.

Connector platform is steel, 20 mm in diameter, slightly raised above the mod is the right decision, because when you change the atomizer will not scratch the body. It is worth saying that you can install atomizers up to 26 mm in diameter on the Dovpo Nickel 230W Box Mod, they will not overhang the edge of the mod.

The Dovpo Nickel’s 230 watts of power is provided by two standard 18650 batteries, which can be installed by removing one of the magnetically held side panels. If the need arises, you can charge the batteries not only in an external charger, but also using the USB connector, which is located at the bottom of the mod.

Board, functionality and features of operation

It is worth paying tribute to the developers of the company Dovpo, who are engaged in electronics. The chip installed in Nickel, works perfectly, it really gives the power specified by the user on the atomizer coil. At the same time, the manufacturers have not forgotten about the functionality of the vaper can use the device not only in the varivatta mode, but also in thermocontrol and TCR. The minimum resistance with which the mod is able to work is 0.08 ohm, which is currently quite enough for comfortable vaping.

Nickel is equipped with a rather large color display, the information on which is arranged vertically. On it you can find all the information necessary for a vaper: power, current mode, battery charge level, coil resistance, current. It is worth saying that the device control is very simple, even a beginner can understand it. The manufacturer has provided the possibility of updating the firmware, but at the moment on the official website there is no information on how to do it.

Conclusions and impressions

We can confidently say that the Dovpo Nickel 230W Box Mod will become quite popular among vapers, as you can get a multifunctional budget mod, which is made in a rather original and slightly standard design. The manufacturer made sure that the most common functions were available to the user, and at the same time the device was not a typical Drag.
