Is the Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 the best Wismec mod you can buy right now? Drew just spent a couple of weeks getting to know the three-cell Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 – find out whether it’s worth your time below
Drew here with another review for ya. This time we’ll be diving into the Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 and let me tell you, this tiny little guy packs a SERIOUS punch… Let’s have a look!
Ever since I can remember, Wismec has been the three-battery company. Now I can’t quite recall if they made the first three-battery mod, but I know for sure the first box I got with three cells was an RX 2/3. At the time, three batteries and 250 watts of power was amazing, something that was simply unfathomable!
Fast forward to the Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3, and it can be seen Wismec has come a long way. This mod is freakin TINY.
When I first got it, I was shocked you could fit three batteries in there. And not only does it hit 250W, it goes all the way up to 300W!
With that, let’s take a closer look at the visual and exterior aspects of the mod.
Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 REVIEW: DESIGN
I know I’ve already said it TWICE but this mod is mind-blowingly small. I just can’t wrap my head around the form factor. I have big meaty paws, so I’m not a big fan of little one battery mods. But at the same time a big, bulky mod is a pain to carry around.
This beast just slips right into a pocket and protrudes slightly more than your average two-battery mod. In a jacket, forget about it! The device is crazy light, you’ll barely notice it’s in there compared to other 3×18650 cell mods around at the moment.
And for me, this is where Wismec has really scored big. It has taken the concept of a three-cell mod, taken away the downsides (size), and produced a mod that embodies everything you could possibly want from a modern box mod.
Acquiring three cells, or six if you want to run it correctly with zero down time, can be expensive. But the upshot of this expense is that you get around 30% better battery performance, meaning less down time and more vaping.
I’ve also yet to see a three-cell mod that looks as good as this one. As for the body styling, it sticks to the traditional RX styling, only reducing the size. And I dig it! The features are basically the same, and the ability to upload a logo of your choice is a nice touch.
It’s actually really easy to do as well; simply get a black and white bitmap image or convert an image by re-saving it in bitmap form, invert the colors, and voila there’s your image on a black background. Then you just download the Wismec software and use it the same way as any of the RX devices.
The only issue I have with the design of this mod is the screen and fire button; they are loosely assembled. The screen has a slight clicking noise if you barely tap it, and the fire button rattles a bit if you shake the mod.
It was this way since it came out of the box, however, I do know a few people who have the same device without these issues.
Overall I’d say the mod is beautifully designed, and the size of the device is simply amazing given its three-cell capacity.
Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 REVIEW: PERFORMANCE
This box blows away most devices I’ve vaped on. Again, it really comes down to the size versus the performance. Compare it to the RX300 Wismec released not more than a year ago and the size difference is game changing.
One nice feature that the Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 has which the previous three battery RX mods did not is individual battery meters. The only problem is that the mod likes to discharge the batteries unevenly sometimes, and this is simply due to the fact that two of the batteries are in series, and that set is in parallel with the other battery, which makes for a weird load on the batteries.
The battery life at around 100 watts is pretty long, as I vape a solid amount day to day and it lasts me 2 days with Sony VTC6’s. I’m used to changing batteries every day with a two-battery mod, so it’s really nice to be able to just grab my vape and head out in the morning on the second day.

Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3: FINAL VERDICT
All in all, the Wismec Reuleaux RX GEN3 simply blew me away. The size is what really shocks everyone, I personally STILL can’t believe you can fit three batteries inside!
The build quality is great, the battery life, as you’d expect, is enormous, and the power you get from the mod is seriously potent, meaning you can rock pretty much any style of build and still have tons of push left in the tank.
If I didn’t receive this for review, I would have gone and gotten one anyways. What you get for the price you pay is phenomenal! Go get yourself one today – I 100% guarantee you WILL NOT be disappointed!
