Today, we’re going to dip into some hardware and review the new mod from Sigelei and Kaos ecigs. This is the Kaos Z 200w Mod and it seems to be gaining some popularity. I’ll first list all the specs and then we’ll have a look closer at the mod and see how it runs.

The packaging is nicely put together with a see through Z window on the box, along with a circuit graphic. It has a scratch authenticity on the side with the contents and spec listed on the back, along with the disclaimer and warnings.
On opening the box, the contents are the Mod, a USB cable for upgrades, warranty cards and the user manual in a few languages, all packed neatly inside the box.
The Kaos Z is a regulated mod that takes 2 x 18650 batteries. No batteries are included so you’ll need to grab a couple of decent 18650’s. Batteries are inserted with positive up on one side and negative up on the other. The battery door is a smoked transparent window that clips off and held by two small magnets. It fits nicely flush on the body of the mod.
Adjacent to the battery compartment is a large window that covers the complete side of the mod. Again, smoked transparent plastic. Behind that is the main circuit board for the mod which is fully visible. On top of the board contains 6 coloured LED lights, that light up when the mod is in use (You can turn these off in settings).
The display is below the fire button on the side on the unit. Up and down buttons are at the bottom of the display with the micro USB port under that. The fire button is a fairly large clicky button, so it’s easy to feel that you’re firing the mod. The display is impressive. It’s a very clear display, showing the power in large numbers with volts, amps and ohms next to that. The battery bar is a single battery icon displayed at the bottom of the screen. It’s the usual 5 clicks on the fire button to power the mod on or off. It’s 3 clicks of the fire button to enter the settings for the mod where you can change the power to temp mode and set the lights in colour mode. There is currently 6 light colours as an option (maybe more will come with upgrades). You can select LED’s on ‘when using’, ‘Always on’ or completely turn them off. There is also 3 modes when the lights are in use; Normal, Loop and Breathing (where it scrolls the lights through all the colours). You can also select the brightness of the LED’s.
When using the mod, it fires well and responsive to the button. The display information seems reliable to the atty in use, displaying the correct information. The 510 connection is aluminium on top of the unit which is fine for 22-24mm atty’s. Any bigger and there will be some substantial overhang. My Kaos Z is in black colour and currently there is also Orange, Red and Yellow as optional colours.
It’s a decent mod, but definitely geared towards the cosmetics. It looks a lot like one of those light up PC cases you can get, with the smoked opaque perspex windows to see inside. It fire’s fast enough and the battery life with brand new 18650’s isn’t too bad at all. To me, with the lights active when firing the mod, the battery life is about the same as most other mods from what I’ve found using it so far. There must be more battery drain, but I’ve not noticed it much at all. It is definitely the sort of mod you would use around the house as it isn’t the strongest built. One drop on a hard floor would surely shatter either of the windows, so there is no ‘Geekvape Aegis’ strength quality to the build. With that aside, I like it! A bit of a gimmick? Maybe! but if you like your light up PC’s, Trainers, Kettles, etc – You’re going to love it!
It looks good if you’re into LED’s, taking mod photos etc
It has an impressive display and buttons work fine without a cheap feel.
It fit’s an average sized hand and can thumb or finger fire depending what way round it is.
It is reasonably priced.
It is probably not the strongest mod, I wouldn’t give it past one drop.
I can’t see a function to flip the display screen the other way which could help if you hold it the other way round.
My score: 7.8/10 – A mod that works well with a unique look. If you like cosmetics on a mod, look no further (at least for now)
Keep track of the site to see more hardware in amongst the juice reviews.
