Smoant Charon TC 218W Box Mod Overview
The Smoant Charon TC 218 Box Mod is Smoant’s follow-up to the massively popular Battlestar 200W Box Mod— combining the powerful ANT 218 TC chipset with a sleek and compact chassis that’s visually-appealing and feels great to hold in the hand. Upon first glance, the Charon TC 218 is remarkably slender and compact for a 218W capable device, measuring at 91mm tall and 53mm wide. This powerful device is constructed out of Zinc alloy and features a unique leather sticker that wraps around the outside of the chassis that greatly increases the grippiness of the device while offering an original and customizable look that’ll definitely stand out in a crowd. The high-quality leather material is easily replaceable and can be swapped with one of several exclusive Smoant covers for nearly unlimited customization with different tanks and RDA’s. The leather sticker doubles as a magnetic battery cover for the two 18650 batteries (not included) inside the device, offering a refreshing alternative to the sliding battery door found on the bottom of most devices. The battery cover is held in place by four strong magnets, and can be effortlessly removed with a simple pull of the cover to gain access to the dual 18650 battery bay. The front of the Charon is equipped with a bright OLED display screen that accurately displays your current vape settings, and a Micro USB port that can be used for charging the device and upgrading its firmware. Under the hood, the powerful ANT 218 TC chip is compatible with all of the latest temperature control wires (Nickel, Stainless Steel, Titanium) and can support resistances as low as 0.1 ohms. This innovative chip also features a custom TCR mode for TC enthusiasts that prefer to set their own temperature coefficient of resistance— providing a more accurate TC vaping experience, depending on which wire you choose to use. The Charon was constructed with safety in mind and includes Over-Time, Low Resistance, Reverse Polarity and Overheating Protection so you can vape in peace knowing that you won’t end up on the evening news. If you’re looking for a sleek and powerful new device to add to your collection that contends with only the best dual-18650 devices on the market today, Smoant’s premier Charon TC 218 Box Mod will not disappoint!

The attractive Charon TC 218W is Smoant’s followup to the popular 200W Battlestar mod, supporting a traditional box mod shape and shipping in a variety of of different colors and styles, all the while harnessing Smoant’s most powerful chipset ever implemented in any of their dual battery box mods.
When looking on the outside of the box, you’ll clearly see the device and it’s correct color sticker, the model type on the bottom, and some features on the back as well as the scratch off authenticity code. Opening the box, you’ll find an inspection card, the Karen User Manual, battery safety caution card, a warranty service card, Micro USB cable for charging and firmware upgrades, and the Karen TC 218 device. The Charon is a compact mod that’s constructed out of Zinc Alloy and high-quality leather, standing at 91mm tall and just 53mm wide. Around the outside of the chassis you’ll discover that Smoant went above and beyond most manufacturers when dealing with battery venting. On both sides of the device, there’s two sets of dual battery-venting holes, as well as six additional venting areas on the back. Needless to say, the Charon will dissipate heat like no-ones business. The stylish leather sticker that wraps around the Charon is removable and totally customizable. As of right now, Smoant offers 6 unique sticker designs that’ll completely change the look and feel of your device, no matter which color you have or prefer. Up top, Smoant includes a spring-loaded 510 connection that’s equipped to handle tanks that measure 25mm in diameter and below with no overhang. The 510 area features a unique pattern that’s raised slightly from the top of the box, providing a solid connection for most tanks and helping them sit flush on top of the device. The Charon promotes an intuitive three-button design and makes the most of its large firing button which is easily accessible and super-responsive when pushed. Below that, you’ll see the bright OLED display, two regulatory buttons, a micro USB port for charging and firmware upgrades, and some branding on the bottom. With the battery cover removed, you can see the two magnets at the top and bottom of the device which strongly hold the battery cover in place. The battery cover is reversible, so it doesn’t matter which way you place the battery cover back on, so long as it’s properly installed right-side up or upside down. With two 18650 batteries installed, five clicks of the fire-button will power the device on. Immediately you’re greeted with a nifty Smoant animation, and on the home-screen, you can clearly see the battery power, vape mode, wattage, resistance, and voltage. The Charon can be cranked all the way up to 218W and is functional with resistances as low as 0.1 ohms. Pushing the fire-button three times will take you into the menu, where you can access the Temperature Control modes. The Charon is compatible with Ni200, Ti, SS, Nickel, and Custom TCR. The Direct Temperature Control and Direct Variable Wattage curve modes require a firmware update in order to use these pre-installed vape modes. Holding down the fire-button and right-button at the same time will flip the screen orientation, and holding both regulatory buttons down simultaneously will lock your current wattage. Pressing the fire-button five times will power the device off. When compared to Joyetech’s eVic Primo 25, the Charon stands just a little bit taller than the Primo, as they’re virtually identical in width. Each device offers replaceable stickers, and both mods are compatible with 25mm tanks. The eVic Primo has the Charon beat on screen size, however, in a world where power is king, the Primo’s 200w max wattage-output pales in comparison to the Karen’s 218W of pure vaping power.
Smoant’s premier Karen TC 218 Box Mod proves to be a pocket-friendly device that is capable of some serious cloud output. If you’re interested in getting your hands on a stylish, dual-battery device that’s highly-customizable and equipped with Smoant’s innovative vaping technology, the Charon is available in nine unique styles for your all day vaping pleasure!
