The Seven 30 is based on the SX300 chip and is variable wattage only. You cannot independently adjust voltage. This uses 26650 batteries. The Seven 30 dimensions: diameter is 30 mm (1.17 in.) and height is 140 mm (5.51 in.). We haven't received our scale yet, but this is one heavy unit.
As you can see at the left, this is probably one of the most useful OLED screens on the market. It prominently displays the current wattage, output voltage, coil resistance, remaining battery life (visual bar), and remaining battery life in voltage. The OLED is bright and has two levels. I had absolutely no problems reading this in sun light.
The Seven 30 is a single button device. You use the same firing button to access the menu system, and then use its gravity sensing feature to adjust the menu options. It's actually quite simple to use.
Press the button five times to power on. When you power on, you will see the Pioneer4You logo, "SX300", and then the unit goes into standby mode, ready to vape. When you do vape, you will see a display similar to the one at the left (with your chosen options).
To enter into the menu settings mode, you press the firing button quickly five times. To exit settings mode, lean the Seven 30 to the left while in the Exit option, or wait 20 seconds with no activity.
There is also a "System" option that also uses the word "exit" that can be a bit confusing. The "System" is to turn the device off.
The other menu option is "wattage" ... this is where you can adjust your wattage. You lean the device to the left to lower the wattage in 0.1 watt increments, lean the device to the right to increase wattage in 0.1 watt increments. There are two automatic 'stepping' increments to speed up increase/decrease ... it doesn't take long.
From a functionality perspective, the Seven 30 is excellent. It works. It is a distinct improvement over the Seven 22. I particularly like the OLED displays. The display provides exactly the information needed and is easy to read.
As well engineered as this device is, it is still a mass produced device that shows some artifacts of the metal machining process. The slots along the battery tube show metal that should have been removed and properly polished at the factory. Quite frankly, this is a nitty complaint, the metal artifacts face the battery, not the outside of the tube – they are not a risk to the user. It just doesn't look entirely finished. What is of more concern is at the top of the unit, the air flow slots are very sharp. I expect to hear about someone cutting their hand while putting on or removing their atomizer. These should have been smoothed out at the factory, there is no excuse for this. Anyone buying the Seven 30 should take a light sandpaper and smooth down the edges of the air flow slots.
I used this with the HCigar Kayfun 3.1 Svoemesto (also supplied by NYX E-Cigs). The finish is identical to the Seven 30. The combined brushed stainless steel looks great. The Kayfun is narrower than the Seven 30 ... but doesn't look out of place. I can't wait for the 28.5 mm and 30 mm to be widely available ...
So what's the verdict? Is is worth it? This is the second 30 Watt regulated Advanced Personal Vaporizer that I review and the fourth that uses 26650 batteries. I have recommended the Hades, a mechanical mod. I also recommend the Seven 30. The Seven 30 functions as it advertises, it works right out of the box and enhances the vaping experience. The screen display is useful information and is clearly visible in just about every type of lighting condition. I wish it also had variable voltage, but it doesn't. At this price point, and supporting sub-ohm coils, it's a great value. These are new in the market. I only know of one source where these are available to purchase. NYX E-Cigs doesn't even have these on their website yet ... but give them a call (855-699-3244) and buy one now. NYX E-Cigs is selling these for $139.99 and have a very limited inventory.
