Amigo is doing very well in Europe with their advanced vaping gear like the Revox and Riptide sub ohm tank, but they have not taken off nearly as strongly in North America, at least not as far as e-commerce is concerned.
Could it be that vapers take one look at the Amigo Vogue 50W box mod and think “iStick?” If so, they are likely to stick with the Eleaf brand and its soft shape but high-tech reliability instead of trusting a brand they are not yet familiar with, and that goes for store owners as well. That doesn’t mean you should not investigate. Vapers might be missing something.
Amigo Vogue 50W Mod Kit
A Vogue 50W Box Mod kit by Itsuwa Amigo contains a USB cable, micro charger, and a built-in cell rated 2500mAh. We will talk a little bit about the charging method below but you should also know there are style options. Select the device in black, silver, teal, or white.
Features of the Vogue
That 2500mah cell is reasonably powerful and conveniently built in. Mind you, a lot of people would say they prefer a removable battery. That way they aren’t tied down. If their cell was removable and it was running out of power, they could swap. But with the USB setup, they have to use it as a pass-through device or wait for charging to finish. This is probably one reason so many people operate more than one vape mod.
Sub Ohm Compatibility
The Vogue handles sub ohm atomizer coils to a minimum of 0.3 ohms which creates excellent clouds from all kinds of e juice, especially high-vegetable glycerin varieties. If your build is lower than this, the device will not turn on owing to low-resistance protection. Atomizer coils will also change as they burn, so the resistance monitor built into the Vogue detects this and passes on the information via the LCD screen.
Here you will also be given the alert if this Amigo product prevents a short circuit or detects some other problem like low voltage or overheating. Use this screen to keep an eye on watts, battery power, and resistance. As you can see, the top wattage rating is 50 watts which is affected by the atomizer, but you don’t have a Temperature Control option.
The atomizer well is threaded to accept 510-threaded tanks. It contains a spring-loaded post which is flexible about what sort of tank you attach. Spring-loading prevents there being a gap between the machine and a tank. Use a tank that does justice to that 0.3-ohm minimum resistance, such as an Aspire Triton.
Amigo Vogue 50W Measurements
Vapers generally want their mods to be compact. This device fits the bill with dimensions of 86 mm x 36 mm x 22 mm. The last of these dimensions matches the width of typical sub ohm atomizer tanks and gives you a good idea of which ones to look at as a companion, such as the Kanger Toptank Mini. Amigo also suggests pairing with the Cyclone Mini Sub Ohm Tank. It features airflow adjustment, 0.5-ohm BVC coils, and a range of 15W to 50W vaping in comfort.
Amigo or Eleaf?
I imagine the technology inside these two devices isn’t very different. I would still sympathize with anyone who chose to stick with a tried and true Eleaf.
