The Vandy Vape Pulse BF 80W box mod comes in a blue package with a window on the front. You are able to clearly see the panel of your mod through this window. Specs of this device are listed on the back of the box.
Open the box up and you will see your Pulse 80W box mod sitting in a foam insert with a USB cable to the left of it. Take the device and the cable out of the box, pull out the foam insert and underneath is where you will find all of your paperwork. The paperwork included is a QC certificate, a warranty card, and a user manual. The user manual is very well done and easy to understand.
Starting at the top of the mod, we have a gold-plated spring-loaded squonking pin. There is a metal plate around the squonking pin that is held in place with two-star screws. There are also two half-circle grooves cut into the plate itself. Threading on the 510 is extremely smooth and all of your atomizers should sit nice and flush. The Pulse BF 80W will hold 25mm atomizers without any overhang.
On the sides of the mod is where you will find the removable panels. With the screen facing you, on the right side of the mod is where you will find your squonk side panel. They are cut very precisely and use very strong magnets to keep them secure. On the left side of the mod is where you will find the panel that allows you access to your battery. This mod does take a 20700 battery or a 18650 with the included battery adapter. There is no battery strap. Instead, you take your left side panel off and you can push your battery through in order to replace or swap it out.
Panels for the Pulse 80 Watt box mod are interchangeable and there will be many different colors available. You can mix and match them as you see fit. This allows you to customize your mod and have that feeling of having a new mod every day should you choose to buy the extra panels. Right now there are six panels available but there are more on the way. The colors that are available right now are Lava Red, Fantastic Blue, Seaweed Green, Carbon Fiber in full black, and Carbon Fiber in silver.
The battery tray is extremely clean. On the top left of the battery tray, there is some Pulse and Vandy Vape branding. On the left side of the battery tray towards the bottom, there is a Pulse emblem. Next to the Pulse emblem is where you will find your 8 ml, food grade, silicone squonking bottle.
We created a proprietary food grade silicone squonk bottle that has an 8 ml capacity. The installed tube in the bottle is pre-cut and we also made sure that the neck of the bottle gives you plenty of space to get a good grip and hold it without making a mess while filling. The opening is nice and wide, so filling it up is easy and clean. Threading on the bottle is extremely smooth. In order to install your bottle, all you have to do is slide it onto the gold-plated stem and you are ready to squonk. Above the gold-plated stem, we created a 3 o’ring anti-leak system that ensures that your mod stays dry inside and no juice actually penetrates it.
To the right of the squonk bottle, is where you will load your battery. We made clear battery indicator markings that are a different color from the body of the mod for safety. Please install your battery negative side up. You will also notice that the negative battery contact is gold plated and spring loaded. The positive battery contact is gold plated and button style. We made sure the tolerances on this battery tray were up to specs, so you will have no battery rattle.
With the left side panel off, on the back of the mod, you will see some Tony B branding as well as some Vandy Vape branding. This side of the mod is held in place by 7-star screws. This is the side of the mod that you will use to push your battery through in order to install a new one.
On the outside of the mod, the side opposite of the screen, you will see some Vandy Vape branding cut into the body of the mod. Since it is the same color of the frame, it is not intrusive at all and it does provide some texture. On the bottom of the mod there are ten tiny holes that serve as board venting. The mod is primarily constructed of Nylon and ABS plastic that is heat resistant, light weight, and extremely durable.
On the front side of the mod is where the screen, fire button, up button, down button, and USB charge update port is located. Buttons have a very clicky, tactile, feel to them. They are done in black just like the frame of the mod. All three buttons are slightly raised from the frame of the mod.
The .91 inch display screen is very bright and easy to see, even in outdoor lighting conditions. On the screen, you will be able to see your mode, resistance, voltage, and battery life. The menu system is extremely simple and very intuitive. This mod is firmware upgradable and it does charge at a rate of 1 amp. There is also a pass-through feature on the Pulse mod. The Pulse 80W box mod uses a proprietary Vandy Vape chipset that we have been working on for well over a year.
The Pulse BF 80 watt mod measures in at 82mm by 56 mm x 27 mm. It weighs 285 grams and it can fire from 5 to 80 watts. It also scrolls in 1-watt increments. It will fire down as low as .05 ohms in TC or wattage mode. It has a temperature control range of 200 to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. The work modes on the mod include Power, Bypass, SS, Ti, and Ni. There is also a Curve feature for advanced users and an Auto Watt feature that is perfect for new vapers.
