Wismec CB-80 Review | Performance Test Results

    Testing on this mod was done with Sony VTC5A Batteries. They list the specs at 80 watts, 9 volts, and 50 amps. Kudos on them for listing all three. During my testing the max achieved wattage was 84, So it is accurately rated and capable of doing a little more than the 80 listed.

    The amp limit I got was 25 amps which is a little low for a single-battery mod and falls way short of their listed specs. The 50 amps listed limit is a joke. Based on the watt limit of the device, you would need to use a 0.03-ohm coil which is below the mod’s limits anyway. In any case, the CB-80 is vastly overrated in this department.

    The voltage limit I got with a 0.61-ohm coil was 7.153 volts. I couldn’t go higher due to the wattage limitations of the device. Pretty high for a single battery mod and confirms it has a boost circuit as well. I’d consider the 9 volts to be plausible but would have had to test with a 1.0-ohm or higher coil. Regardless, more than enough voltage for anyone’s needs.  

    The mod adjusts in 0.1-watt increments. During my testing, the mod gets really hot when firing at 50 or more watts. It’s also inconsistent enough that I can’t place a set value on it. It just doesn’t work well, even though it mostly meets it specs at times. If you are only going to vape at 40 watts or less, it’s serviceable. Overall, not very happy with the CB-80’s performance in power mode.
