Sigelei Zmax V5 Review
This product has been discontinued from sales and replaced with newer models.
Before trying the Sigelei Zmax V5, I had already used the SMOKTech Zmax a few times and I really loved it. The SMOKTech version was super comfortable to use and I had high hopes for the Sigelei and all things considered, they are quite similar with some minor variations, but both are good devices.
How It Works
The Sigelei Zmax V5 has telescopic abilities, meaning you can use several different battery options: the 18350, 18500, or 18650. It is a variable voltage and variable wattage device and you can set the voltage from 3-6 volts in .1 increments. The wattage runs from 3-15 in .5 watt increments. Best of all, it is slightly cheaper than the SMOKTech ZMax so you get incredible value for a lower price.
The Sigelei Zmax is compatible with 510 threaded clearomizers or tanks and you can also use ego tops with the help of an adapter piece. It has a nice OLED display screen that is easy to read and much nicer than the screen on the SMOKTech version.
One of the coolest features of the Sigelei Zmax V5 is the included USB adapter that allows you to use your mod as a portable charger. You can actually recharge your cell phone by plugging it into the device and turning on the “Mobile Out” feature. This is a cool feature that I haven’t seen from other mods and it’s definitely a big selling point!
The Sigelei Zmax is a beautiful device and you can choose from a Stainless Steel finish or a darker Gun Metal color. Personally, I love the Gun Metal finish so much more. It just looks tougher than other mods and stands out from the rest of my collection!
In terms of performance, this mod is killer! The fire button is firm and sturdy and it regulates well so you can vape consistently through a whole battery charge. I also found that my eliquid flavors taste much cleaner and brighter in the Sigelei than in my SMOKTech Zmax. In a side by side comparison with the very same atomizer top, the Sigelei just gave me a better vape every single time. With better performance and a more affordable price, the Sigelei just has an edge over the competition.
Ultimately, if you want a Zmax device, I highly recommend that you skip other brands and head straight for the Sigelei Zmax V5. With telescopic capabilities, an improved display, powerful vapor production, and consistent performance, it is a definite winner and currently ranks right at the top of my list of favorite mods.
