Eleaf iStick Pico 75W Kit Review
Living up to its name, the Eleaf iStick Pico is indeed preferable, innovative, compact, and outstanding (PICO). It seems that Eleaf has designed the ultimate go-to device for new vapers seeking for top-notch performance.
Upon opening the kit, the first thing you will notice is the iStick Pico’s reduced size, measuring just 70.6 by 45.2 by 23.2 mm (Melo tank not included). The mod is very handy and comfortable to hold. In fact, it could fit in the smallest pocket or purse. It comes with a fairly large LCD display, displaying the set wattage and temperature, as well as the resistance and voltage. When you press the fire button, the puff timer automatically appears on the screen. Talking about its design, the mod looks absolutely stunning; flaunting a brush metal top, bottom frames, and aesthetically made battery extension cap.
But what is aesthetics if the performance is bad? Good thing the iStick Pico is strong on both categories. The Pico is the first upgradeable firmware device by iStick. Users can easily get access to the latest innovations by simply connecting the mod to a computer via the micro-USB port. For instance, if you want to upgrade the Pico to 100 watts from the current 75 watts or you wish to add support for a new material in temperature control mode, this can all be done with a simple firmware upgrade.
Other than upgrading the device, the micro-USB port is also used to charge the device. This will surely save you from the trouble of having an external charger. The average-length USB cable also permits you to use the Pico as a pass-through while charging.
For a tiny device, the menu is complex. It has several features you need to explore and different button combinations you need to familiarize to access you device. For instance, you need to quickly click the fire button three times to browse through the different modes. Rapidly pressing the fire button five times will also switch the iStick Pico on and off.
The mod is powered by a single interchangeable 18650 cell that will provide a maximum output of 75 watts in switchable VW/Bypass/TC-Ni/TC-Ti/TC-SS/TRC modes. Its temperature control feature is accurate enough, making it perfect for the most demanding temp control vapers. It also features an adjustable temperature and wattage; fixed settings for nickel, titanium, or stainless steel wire; and three user-programmable custom TCR settings.
It is equipped with a Melo 3 Mini Sub-ohm Tank, which has a 2-ml e-liquid capacity. The tank is a standard 22 mm in diameter and 33 mm from the base to cap (55mm if the metal drip tip is included). Despite is size, it still uses a full-sized factory coil head. The kit comes with two heads; both are vertical Kanthal coils with 0.3 ohm and 0.5 ohm resistances.
Performance-wise, the tandem of the Pico and Melo 3 Mini gives an amazing vaping experience. It offers a full vape experience as one would expect from a mid-power regulated mod with a sub-ohm clearo tank. The Melo 3 Mini produced a satisfying cape using the 3.0 ohm head, with full flavor and good vapor production at 65 watts. The Pico also boasts of all the expected safety features including a 10-second cut-off, low resistance, atomizer short, reverse battery, and overheating shutdown.
The Eleaf iStick is a very popular brand name in the vaping community. It is known for making user-friendly, reliable, and very affordable mods on the market. This Chinese company is one of the front-runners in this highly competitive industry.
Nevertheless, what’s the use of a good vaping kit without a delicious and flavorful e-juice? For an excellent vaping experience, you should try the flavor-packed Caktus Juice e-liquids. It has eight uniquely blended fruity flavors such as Berry Crunch, Tangy Grape, Strawberry, Tangy Apple, Watermelon, Strawberry Cream, and Pineapple that will surely give you a tasty mouth explosion. Get a 30-ml bottle for as low as AUD $15.95 at Caktus Vape.
