Design, and Other Features

The Design

The Aspire Archon Box Mod has an outstanding structure and design. You can tell they have two things in mind when creating this mod; make it strong, and make it good looking.

VD Aspire Archon colors

I can confidentially say they’ve achieved both. The three different color combination gives you a unique choice and feel for your device.

The Size

The Aspire Archon Mod comes in at around 88mm height, 50 mm length and 23mm width which makes this mod extremely slim for a mod of this caliber. Each corner features a curved structure ensuring this mod has no sharp edges.

Features

You can expect this mod to come with an outstanding amount of features. They’ve given you a lot of options to get the full potential out of the 150W mod. Here are some of the important features that you’ll want to know:

Button Functions – On the face of the device you’ll be greeted with a lot of buttons, here’s a table displaying exactly what each one is responsible for:

Specifications

Button Combination Result
Click Fire Button x5: Lock/Unlock Mod
Click Fire Button x3: Enter/Exit Stealth Mode
“W” + “+”: Lock/Unlock Buttons
“W” + “-“: Lock/Unlock Child Mode
“T” + “-“: Change Logo
“T” + “+”: TCR Settings

Child Lock Feature – The mod features child lock ability, something that is not commonly found on mods like this. It’s important to have child protection put in place with these larger mods, and they can be extremely dangerous if used incorrectly, child lock features will give you that peace of mind when leaving it around at home.

VD Aspire Archon 510

Spring Loaded 510 Connector – You have the ability to connect any 510 compatible tanks to this mod, always ensure that the selected atomizer in the tank is compatible with the power output of this mod. The spring loaded connector will help you easily swap tanks when required.

The Archon Box Mod: What to Consider

Finding a Tank

It’s important that your desired tank supports the power output that this mod will reach, if it doesn’t, simply turn down the mod using the control on the face of the device. When deciding on the tank, you would like to use with this mod make sure you fully understand the capabilities of the atomizer, failure to do so could simply burn it.

VD Aspire Archon and Tank

A common issue with this mod is an overhang from the tank, due to the small size of the mod you’ll be dealing with the slight overhang from the base of the tank. In my opinion, although not visually appealing I feel a slight overhang can actually help with access to the tank and mod.

Performance

Powered by dual 18650 Lithium-ion batteries; there’s no surprise that this mod packs a huge punch. Hosting the ability to reach up to 150W power output the only trouble you’ll have with this device is finding a sub ohm tank that lets you reach that amount of power.

When you pair this mod up with a tank of the same caliber, you’ll be extremely satisfied with the power output and vapor production from the tank. It’s an extremely high powered device, with huge amounts of performance and standard.

Battery Life

You can expect a normal full charge to last you at least 3 – 4 full tanks of liquid (3ML), which is more than enough vaping usage. You can tell this extremely long battery life comes with the dual batteries, taking a step up from other mods.

You can expect the device to take a good couple hours to charge fully.

How To Maintain It

Maintenance Instructions

It’s important to ensure the mod is kept in a great condition as possible, this will greatly increase the lifespan of your device. Once you’ve started using the device ensure you keep all connections clean, this can include wiping out any dried up juice or liquids in the 510 connector.

Maintenance can also include ensuring the battery doesn’t stay charging for longer than it should, when you leave a battery charging once it’s fully charged it will start reducing the overall battery life on the device. Always ensure you watch the device or keep a close eye on it when charging.

More information

Any additional information on the device can be found in the user manual provided. You should always check the user manual to get the best understanding of the mod before using it.

The Competition

The only true competitor that I see for the Aspire Archon Box Mod is the Sigelei T150 Box Mod.

Sigelei T150 Box Mod

To be perfectly honest, it’s a lot more expensive and simply offers fewer features. The only reason I can see the T150 Mod being more expensive is that of the huge screen that you get on it; but is that needed? In my opinion, the Archon Box Mod has the lowest price and much more functionality and features, and it shouldn’t be worried about any competition.
