Whether you run a dripper or a tank, a regulated variable voltage/variable wattage device is a valuable addition to every vaper’s arsenal. These devices give users the ability to adjust the wattage in order to tailor the heat and vapor output of the unit to their preference. Additionally, regulated devices eliminate voltage drop which plagues mechanical units.
The Chain Reaction is a 50 Watt 26650 regulated device made by Amigo Itsuwa which features a durable yet sleek design. The attractive styling boasts a durable carbon fiber battery tube cover which compliments the stainless steel components and protects the copper battery tube and red bronze contacts. The OLED display is easy to read, and the software is intuitive.
The device operates in the manner that all experienced vapers have come to expect: utilizing a power button which doubles as an on/off switch and two buttons for wattage adjustment from 7 to 50 Watts. The buttons offer satisfying tactile feedback and are of durable proven design. Disassembly of the unit is achieved by first unscrewing the bottom cap and removing the battery. The carbon fiber covered copper tube can then be unscrewed from the rest of the device, although this would be unnecessary for any purpose other than deep cleaning of the unit.
Although the device will fire as low as 0.3 Ohms, the sweet spot for this device is between 0.5 and 0.8 Ohms for RDA’s and will handle any sub Ohm tank currently on the market utilizing coils in the correct range. The Chain Reaction features an overload protection circuit and will also measure the resistance of the build placed on the sturdy non-adjustable 510 connection preventing any shorts or undue stress to the battery. The sensible range, combined with the 26650 battery, provides an all-day vape which will satisfy even the most habitual vaper’s.
The 26650 powered regulated devices offer the experienced vaper a sensible go-to device which will meet the needs of these advanced users. In the hands of an experienced user, these devices are safe and reliable when compared to the outdated technology previously available. As always, battery safety should be of paramount concern to any ambassador of the vape community in order to project a positive image of our hobby.
