Sigelei Skycar 230W Box Mod Review
The Sigelei Skycar 230W Box Mod is the latest release by the folks over at Sigele. I was able to see the original prototype back in April at the Shenzhen expo in China and was immediately drawn to its design.
At the time this mod was considered to be released in the $19.99 to $29.99 price range, when it hit market that was not the case and therein lays our first con. Yet before we delve too deep into the cons and pros let’s get to the basics.

The Skycar 230W Box Mod takes its inspiration from the race car designs, with a glossy super flashy paint finish that looks amazing out of the box. Whether it’ll hold up in everyday use is still debatable, but typically with these types of paints a simple chip destroys the aesthetically pleasing aspect they went for.
In terms of performance this mod lacks a screen so the user interface is a front facing nob that you adjust but can just as easily turn mistakenly during use or when its out of use and being carried around.
Due to the nature of how you set your wattage on this device and the small indicators misjudging your settings is easy to do and can lead to a coil burn out if you are not careful.
Aside of that, the performance is pretty instant. Press the fire button and it produces power to your coils, no delays, no fancy settings, no ramp up time, straight power delivery. One of the bigger annoyances with this mod is the included LED lights that cannot be deactivated and thus unfortunately turns your vape experience into a permanent EDM concert, I know LED lights was all the rage and can still be found in many new inbound devices but those devices include the option to deactivate that feature.
