Wismec Sinuous V200 Kit
Wismec has delivered so many devices in its Sinuous range, from the likes of the Ravage, P80, and Solo.
Their latest device where released together, the V200 (a dual 18650 device), and the V80 (a single 18650 version).
That both follow the same design path of being lightweight devices, made from aluminum and plastic, and come paired with the same iteration of Armor tank, the NSE.
Today, we take an in-depth look at the Sinuous V200, the larger of the two devices, to see whether it’s a kit worth spending your money on.
The Sinuous V200 is available in 4 color options: Green/White, Red/Black, Black, and Magenta/White.
Lightweight, easy to use, good pairing with a decent tank for both DTL and MTL.
Feels a little cheap, too much movement in battery door and slide to fill mechanism.
The Bottom Line
The Sinuous V200 kit is far from perfect, but it still does an excellent job at what it sets out to do. It’s a lightweight budget kit, that delivers a great vape in either DTL or MTL modes, thanks to its versatile Armor tank. Some may find it a little too plasticky.

The Wismec V200 is incredibly lightweight for a dual 18650 battery device, which is mainly down to its Aluminum frame and Polycarbonate side panels.
It’s also reasonably compact measuring 88mm by 53mm by 26mm, which makes it feel comfortable in the hand. Even though it’s more of a standard box shape, it has beveled edges which enable you to wrap your hand around without any sharp edges.
The Polycarbonate side panels are transparent so you can see your batteries inside the mod, but they also have a honeycomb style pattern on them to give it a little styling. Being able to see your batteries inside, offers no real benefit, and I’d much prefer it to have been a cleaner look with less transparency on the panels.
The inclusion of such large plastic panels on an aluminum frame may lend itself to making this device lightweight and comfortable to use, but it does make it a look a little cheap.
That being said, the green and white version we have in for review is quite clean looking, and it’s a nice soft shade of green.
On the front of the device, you will find a 0.91-inch screen and the +/- adjustment and fire buttons, along with the micro-USB for charging. All the buttons are reasonably clicky and responsive, and the screen is clear and bright enough in daylight.
The batteries go in one side of the device by removing the side panel. It’s held in place by strong magnets, but there is a little too make play and wiggle in the door. Inside the battery sled, there are gold-plated connection points and really clear battery orientation markings.
The 510 connector is centered on the top of the device, and it’s capable of accommodating upto 25mm atomizers with no overhang.
The Sinuous V200 is not a device made of premium materials, and that’s not the market that Wismec is aiming for. So even though it might feel and look a little cheap, the build quality is actually pretty good.
Even though the battery door has powerful magnets and holds in place, I think the tolerance could’ve been a lot better, as there’s just too much wiggle, which is a little annoying.
Some might find the fire button to be a little mushy also, but I wouldn’t say it’s terrible.
The Wismec Sinuous V200 is a dual 18650 device which has a maximum output of 200W (hence the name).
Whether it genuinely achieves 200W is a different matter and one I’m not capable of testing. But honestly who vapes at 200W anyway?
It is powered by a new version of Wismec’s Avatar chip, which includes all the usual features of Wattage, TC, and TCR modes, along with pre-heat and boost settings. There are also multiple safety protections, that you’d expect from such a device.
It also features 2amp charging through the micro-USB port and is firmware upgradeable.
We have seen the Armor tank from Wismec before on so many of their other devices.
Here we have the latest version, which is the NSE. It’s a similar affair to the device, made primarily of aluminum and plastic, with a little stainless steel. So it’s lightweight, but also a little cheap looking. However, it does pair with the device very well.
The Amor NSE tank is 26mm in diameter (and 46mm tall) and has a capacity of 3ml (or 2ml for the TPD version).
It has a push to fill system on the top, but it is a little loose and too easy to push. However, I’ve been informed the TPD version also has a locking mechanism, unlike the one we have in for review.
The tank comes with a 510 style drip tip, which is plastic and colored the same as the plastic tank section.
The Amor NSE like its sibling tanks can be used in either DTL or MTL mode. The airflow control ring can be aligned to either reveal a large cyclops style airflow hole for DTL or a small airhole for MTL, but it is single-sided airflow.
It’s one of the very few sub-ohm tanks I’ve tried that actually works well in both modes.
A lot of that is also down to the coils that you can use in the Amor. Of which you get two included in the kit; a 1.3-Ohm (WS04) round wire coil for MTL and their new 0.27-Ohm (WS-M) mesh coil for DTL.
There’s honestly nothing to complain about with the performance of either the V200 mod or the Armor NSE tank, both do a decent job.
And that kind of sums up the whole kit, it’s not exceptional, but it’s good for what it is.
The Sinuous V200 has all the features you need in a dual battery device, delivers well in wattage mode, and the TC seems to be far better than previous Wismec devices.
The Armor NSE delivers really good flavor, especially with the new 0.27-Ohm mesh coil, and has smooth and quiet airflow. The single-sided airflow is not an issue for me and works well, but some may prefer dual-sided and more open draw with a low ohm coil.
It seems to perform best with that coil around 45-55W, any higher and it starts to become a little dry.
It’s also performed admirably when in MTL mode, which is where the single-sided really airflow helps. It probably one of the better MTL coil heads on the market.
- Looks and design
- Good build quality
- Ease of use
- 2A charging
- Performance of coils(low power, good flavor/vapor)
- Good MTL and DTL airflow options
- Loose slide to fill
- Movement in the battery door
- Feels a little cheap
The Wismec Sinuous V200 kit, may not be the best dual 18650 on the market, but it is a very good lightweight budget one.
There’s certainly nothing inherently wrong with either the device or the tank that would warrant me not to recommend it. In fact, as a pairing, I think device and tank are really good together.
Having the ability to use the tank with both DTL or MTL coils, has always been a major plus of the Armor series tanks, and the inclusion of mesh coils takes it up a level.
It’s ultimately going to come down to whether you don’t mind that much plastic, and like your devices to be lightweight.
