Wismec is looking to fill a gap in the market for vapers that want high performance and versatility while not needing to spend a lot of money. The price may say budget, but the style and function all says high-end. While the build is nothing revolutionary, it is a solid piece of equipment that has a lot of small details covered. What makes this an excellent vape mod? Read on to get all the details.

Features of the Sinuous Ravage230


Perhaps, the most obvious point to start with is the Gnome Evo tank. The tank has a 2ml capacity but can be converted into a 4ml by removing a silicone bung. This ability to convert keeps the profile compact while delivering a bigger juice well.

To refill, the tank has a slide cap to make it easy and mess free.
For versatility and stability, the 510 pin is made of a solid zinc alloy that can handle any 28mm atomizer without any overhang. Though it can work with any size atomizer that is over, just be aware it will hang over the edge.

Another main feature that makes it stand out is the incredibly rich display. The colors are vibrant, really stand out and the menu is easy to read. The main menu screen shows digital clock and volts, watts, ohms, puffs and battery charge.

How does it vape?

With a 0.4 Ohm coil, the Gnome Evo vapes up some huge clouds that are full of flavor. It may take a few sessions to break in to really get the most accurate flavor, but patience will be rewarded. The airflow is just perfect to really chase some huge clouds, but can be adjusted for a more restricted draw for mouth to lung vaping.

Using the Sinuous Ravage230

To use the menu display, simply press the fire button three times to access it. In power mode, settings include TC (temperature control for use with titanium, stainless steel and nickel coils) and TCR with wattage shown by default. The settings function can lock resistance, turn on preheat mode, set the wattage and power output, as well as set the auto-off timer.

Using the fire button is easy since it is pretty big. There is, however, another button to use in addition. The function button is slightly confusing as it only selects certain things in the menu.

Battery life is generally pretty good, but if the display is not set to automatically shut off, it will drain them faster. Charging is very quick, however.

How does the Sinuous Ravage230 compare to the competition?

Smoant Charon Mini 225w – A powerful mini, it works well, but the finish is prone to getting dirt with fingerprints and the battery is a little rattly.

Snowwolf X-Feng – Build quality is not very high-end and can feel a bit cheap.

Pros & Cons

The Positives

  • Great price
  • Very versatile
  • Incredibly rich display menu
  • Gnome Evo tank
  • 510 threaded sturdy pin
  • Stylish

The Negatives

  • Weird function button
  • Uses only 18650 batteries

Is the Sinuous worth it?

The quality of the vape from the Gnome Evo tank alone makes this a worthwhile purchase. A quality vape is what everybody looks for, everything else is just a bonus. The price, ease of use and style also contribute to making this a great 200W+ box mod for beginners or experts. The compact size, only slightly larger than the batteries, and the slide drip tip make it an ideal box mod for on the go vaping.

My way of understanding the significance of vaping came not only through the disruption of smoking but its effects on society as a whole. Now I bring people to vaping and bring vaping to people. I love using new gear, writing in-depth reviews and generally nerding out about vaping to like-minded people.
