How To Use The Wismec Reuleaux RX200 AND Wismec Reuleaux RX200S
The Wismec Reuleaux RX200 was and still is an iconic mod that was loved and used by millions of vape enthusiasts the globe over.
I used and abused one for 12 solid months before switching to a Vaporesso Nebula. I loved my Wismec Reuleaux RX200; it was unlike anything else on the market.
In fact, I loved mine so much that after 12 months it looked as if it had been to a war zone and back!
The Wismec Reuleaux RX200 is largely responsible for the surge of Wismec in the vaping space. The company, now easily one of the biggest players in the space, has expanded rapidly in the last 18 months.
The Wismec Reuleaux RX200 was actually replaced by the Wismec Reuleaux RX200S, a revamped version of the mod that retains nearly all of its classic design, just with a few new additions like its massive OLED display.
We now also have the Wismec Reuleaux RX75, the Wismec Reuleaux RX300, which is a monstrous beast that takes FOUR batteries and has a max output of 300W and also the Wismec Reuleaux RX2/3.
I don’t know how they’re doing it, but GearBeat is undercutting EVERYBODY with respect to pricing for the Wismec Reuleaux RX300.
GearBest is selling the Reuleaux RX300 for 40% Less Than UK EcigStore (£99 vs £44) and around $30-$40 less than most major US retailers.
Because all Reuleaux mods, save for the DNA 200 version, use Joyetech’s chipset, the way you use the mod and the software that powers remains the same, so what follows below works on all Reuleaux mods including the updated Reuleaux RX200S, Reuleaux RX75 and Reuleaux RX 2/3.
These powerful mods, with their built in software and chipsets can, however, be a little complicated to get your head around at first.
This is why we’ve put together this piece — it’s a complete break down of EVERYTHING you need to know about using the Reuleaux RX200, RX200S, RX75 and RX2/3 box-mods, including hidden features, settings and getting the most from it in everyday settings.

No Atomizer Alert:
- If no atomizer is detected the OLED screen displays “No Atomizer”.
- This usually means that you’re atomizer isn’t connected properly; make sure the tank is secured properly – this usually fixes any issues.

Check Battery Alert:

How To Use The Reuleaux RX200 Box-Mod: Best Practices
Some atomizers have a longer 510 than others. One should be careful to not over tighten the atomizer onto the mod as this could damage the 510 connection.
Even though you can use the USB port on the front of the device for charging it is recommended to use an external battery charger to recharge your batteries.
At least once a week take a Q-tip and clean all the connections on your device. This ensures proper functionality of your device. The OLED screen may get slightly warm with continued use. This is normal and not a cause for an alarm. Make sure to marry your batteries to the device. It is recommended to purchase new batteries when you buy a new device.
How To Use The Reuleaux RX200 Box-Mod: Use A Protective Skin To Ward of Scratches!
Another thing you might want to consider when using the Reuleaux RX200 and Reuleaux RX200S is general wear and tear. I used my Reuleaux RX200 for over 12 months, it went everywhere with me, and it now looks like its been to a war-zone and back. The damn thing is scratched, knocked-about and bruised, as you can see below!
But you don’t need to make the same mistake, as there are protective measures you can use to protect the chassis of your Reuleaux RX200 and Reuleaux RX200S in the form of cheap, multi-coloured protective skins which you can pick up from as little as $6 via eBay!

If you’re keen on keeping your mod in pristine condition, whether to pass it on to another vaper when you upgrade or for re-sale, do yourself a favour and pick up one of these protective skins – they work great and they will keep your mod looking great all year round!
How To Use The Reuleaux RX200 Box-Mod: Updating The Firmware
To update the firmware on your Wismec Reuleaux first visit Wismec’s website and download the firmware updater for your device — Mac and Windows are supported.
After doing that, remove the batteries from your device and plug the supplied usb cable to your device and computer. Open up the file that you downloaded from wismec and select the upgrader.
After your device is detected, select the new firmware (software). Once this process is done you may now remove the usb cable from your device and reinstall the batteries.
This next step is VERY IMPORTANT, check the settings on the device before you use it to ensure your desired mode and wattage is correct.
